Nice video.

Yes, common sense from is so hard for politicians, in policy. Easier to make drama than solve the problems.

This is important to get in streets for, in support of peaceful resolutions to problems. Shame on 1 percent who use violence, and give us the bill.

One of the continuing policy developments that disturbs me is how quickly we move to solutions that involve the loss of life, this I think has been made worst by the all volunteer militarily as more and more it is the working class that is called upon. Even here, as we become more effective at killing the minions of monsters by remote means, what progress is that? So we kill the poor and working class living in the territory held by people who costs our 1% cash. We create economic systems throughout the world where all must bend a knee to money and call it freedom.

I actually do like your commentary. I'm glad that you started posting those.

I think the very real reason that they aren't discussing this is because of two reasons. Primarily because of profit to be gained after dividing up Syria. Secondly, sanctions are a two way street. By this I mean that it would not take much to apply sanctions to the US. I think we have .come rather close to that in the past- much closer than many are willing to discuss currently.

First let me say thank you, it means a lot.

It is a tricky business, my rants are not always sound policy, I think even an act of war might be brought up and an act of war against Russia would indeed be tricky. But the general concept holds, dependence on oil and the increasing reliance of Europe on Russian oil has and continues to cause issues.

I have often thought that nations that are displeased with us could stop selling us oil, they kind of did that once, but it was just an economic move, now that everyone gets paid, the world burns.

You're welcome. I had wanted to tell you this when you first posted your videos.

Rants are rants and we can only go with whatever information that we have at any given time.

I agree, now that it is multinational doesn't really matter for the rest of the world. Oil is not the only thing that can be shut down.

I am being restrained through the software tricks of Indian agencies from logging out of this form/account.Just beware.

I agree the US has not looked at all the options. My thought is we should do nothing in Syria. We are not the world police. Let other countries deal with their own problems. As hard as that sounds, it's better than dealing with another war. Does anyone think the Syrians will love us after this is over?
