They won't stop until they've convinced enough of the people that its worth it. If the public doesn't get behind this, they will simply create another situation, this one more graphic than the last.

The media is bought and paid for by the war machine operators.

"It is true that both debt and the control of currency is one of the most effective means of enslaving an entire population without their knowledge. Continually chasing financial freedom with no ability to pay off debt and save for the future ensures that a sizeable majority of the population will not have the means, time, or energy to resist the totalitarian methods imposed upon them."

the people need to be in control of the currency

Yes, she makes a very valid point on the central banking aspect of whats going on.

The only reason we went into Libya was that reason.

Now ain't that the truth ?! Or at least a HUGE Part of it despite all the light, sweet crude !

How does the US extract poison from Assad and spit in the eye of Egypt ?

Not sure I get you and is that a trick question ? Did you watch the embedded video in my link Matt ?

If not here's the direct YT link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40cD8uYOsBo . Recommending it.

I'm more inclined to see Syria as a scape goat the US can pretend to be "civil" with

Bottom line is that many different things seem to come together and connect in Syria, Matt - and if you have 77m spare now or later, then I'm very strongly recommending this excellent and thought provoking doc. but with some rather surreal, idiosyncratic & humorous editing despite the serous subject matter :

Go over there yourself if you want war so bad.

yeah-ya - I've conducted an informal pol today. One hundred percent of all the uniformed veterans I polled agree - something needs to be done.

no one deserves to be exterminated as if they were no more than cockroaches . . .

I'm in a military family, and all of us in our family oppose making any more war in Syria and any where else in the world. We are tired of fighting wars for the !%.

[-] 0 points by Narley (-634) 7 months ago

I took a poll yesterday of the old geezers down at the coffee shop. All of them are veterans. Every one of them, including me, is strongly opposed to starting a war with Syria.

We are not the world police. Do you really think us bombing Syria will make them love us? Do you really think more bombs is the answer?

[-] -2 points by TropicalDepression (-45) 7 months ago

"no one deserves to be exterminated as if they were no more than cockroaches ."

No they dont. How do you know it was Assad that did it? Because the largest war machine the planet has ever witnessed told you so?

And like I said, get your ass going and get over there then. Plenty of contractor positions open in the MIC.

[-] 2 points by ZenDog (20541) from South Burlington, VT 7 months ago

How do I know? Because the international community is still really pissed that Bush sold his bushite to the UN way back when - and they won't be fooled again.

Our intel apparatus is well aware of that fact, and so for now, I'm confident they are not engaged in spinning this particular issue - on the contrary.

They are leaving the spin to masters like you

try not to get too dizzy

" "The People Demand the Downfall of the Regime," not just Assad. There is consensus across the board, from US to Russia to Iran, that no matter what happens in Syria, regime institutions should remain intact. The same institutions that were built by the dictatorship. The same institutions that plundered Syria and provoked the popular discontent that started this uprising. The same institutions that are merely the remnants of French colonialism. Everyone in Syria knows that the US's preferred candidates for leadership roles in any future Syria are those Syrians who were part of the regime and then defected: Ba'athist bureaucrats turned neoliberal technocrats turned "defectors." These are the people the US would have rule Syria."

There ya go, chew on that puppy dog.

And then pack up your shit and hit the road to Syria. Or just send others to do your dirty work.

Can't man. Wounded. Just flattened my thumb in the wood pile. There's blood,all over the inside of my glove. Should be dry by now. It's really amazing though - some acute pain and all of my foot work, my stances, all come right back.

I like that so much I just might smash it again next week.

You should come over - we could see what else I remember . . .

[-] -1 points by TropicalDepression (-45) 7 months ago

Leave it to a chicken hawk to fake an injury to avoid conflict. You and Bush should write a book.

thousand died but the only evidence we have is a rallied command to put on gas masks

Oh, I could have made that up

[-] 0 points by NVPHIL (667) 7 months ago

Quick thought. If we support the rebels who are associated with Al Queda does that mean the military needs to indefinately detain those that pushed for the war.

[-] 0 points by cruisecontrol (-49) 7 months ago

The way I understand it, it is treason to aid the enemy and the last I heard AQ was still considered our enemy.

Am waiting to hear back from either of my senators or rep about the treason aspect of Syrian rebel aid.

We could really clear out capitol hill after they vote!

[-] 0 points by NVPHIL (667) 7 months ago

Didn't think of the treason aspect but we are at war. I really want to hear the excuses for aiding the same organization that attacked us if we do get involved.

[+] -4 points by cruisecontrol (-49) 7 months ago

Oh, the pro war folks keep saying that we are 'vetting' the rebels that receive aid. Course, the others say 7 outta 9 main insurgent groups are extremists tied to AQ,

One thing we must put boots on ground and do better job of, is securing the weapons when assad falls. We f'd that up big time in Libya, course we also lost some shoulder fired anti aircraft missiles there, too that are now no doubt finding their way to the black market. Could be an issue in Egypt too, when all is said and done there.

[-] 0 points by TropicalDepression (-45) 7 months ago

Well, when they claim Snowden was helping the enemy, and all he did was release information to us, we have to then assume that WE are the enemy, I guess?

This entire system is such a mess right now it can't possibly last much longer.

Yes, they should be detained. Put McKerry behind bars where they belong.

[-] 1 points by NVPHIL (667) 7 months ago

I admit I'm torn. The people for intervention seem to have supported the indefinite detention clause. While it would be classic poetic justice it is still unconstitutional. Just wanted to share with others who would see the irony while showing how broad the part about "substantially support Al Queda or associated forces" can be.

The administration has been alerted to the reality behind the intel. So there is no doubt as to the administration's true intentions as was with Bush.
