President Obama will speak to America on Tuesday and will further his case for striking Syria even though the House is overwhelmingly against war as are the American people. But, never let a war go to waste…
The war drums are beating ever louder and it appears that Obama will march forward into this conflict with or without the blessing of America in general. The 60’s era dovish hippies have morphed into war hawks without a compass, who have an agenda that is opaque in its touted transparency.
Fanning the winds of war is General Petraeus, who after allowing himself to be set up by Obama, wooed into bed by an operative and disgraced in the eyes of Americans, now asks us to have faith in his urgent plea to strike Syria. Having succumbed to the devilish offer of his heart’s desire by Obama, Petraeus now calls us to follow the Marxist-in-Chief into war. To trust his judgement. Sorry general… you have our lives in your hands and they are covered in butter and corruption. From the former head of the CIA (corruption in action):
Retired Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, former CIA director under President Barack Obama, called strongly Saturday for Congress to back the White House on Syria, declaring that military action against the regime is “necessary” to deter “Iran, North Korea and other would-be aggressors.”
“Failure of Congress to approve the president’s request would have serious ramifications not just in the Mideast but around the world,” Petraeus said in a four-sentence statement provided to POLITICO.
As a whole cadre of sinners minus saints back our illustrious and feckless President, America stumbles into WW III. Hardly the cavalry riding to the rescue. The left touts Petraeus as a war God to the right — well, even Gods fall and Petraeus has had his warrior wings clipped and singed by the progressive Left.
Not far behind the fallen general, comes John McCain who is thoroughly an embarrassment to those who voted for him (voting more for Palin than for him – collective noses were held to get a pearl with the swine). Playing his distinguished military service for all it is worth and more, this progressive Republican has played footsie with Obama from the beginning and will shill for him till the end, even if he winds up in a bunker and on fire.
Sashaying into the mix is Lindsey Graham, donning a burka and kissing the feet of his dear leader. He is now claiming if we don’t attack Syria, we may get nuked. News flash Lindsey… your policies and actions are what are going to get us nuked. Your craven weakness, allegiance to a Marxist tyrant and the cheapness of your soul will bring nukes on America. Judgement will await you — richly deserved, I might add. If you poke the Russian bear, shock the Syrian monkey and tease the Iranian lion, you just might get eaten. Graham is right on the threat of Iran, but his approach to war is screwy and deadly.
I believe in fighting our enemies, chief among them being Iran. But there is a huge difference in going to war, killing the enemy and coming home to victory, versus playing at war. That is suicide. With a gutted military, no defined adversary or goal, and no battle strategy, we are almost assured of losing and our powerful enemies in Russia and China are virtually salivating in anticipation of American fast food served up by Obama on skates. Iran is an existential threat to the US and Israel — but if we are to fight them, arm Americans to the teeth and unleash the greatest military on the planet and let us fight them — not Syria. Don’t take a sideways approach to the enemy. Fight those that are a true threat head on and let the Iranians feel the might and wrath of America. After all, they were one of the primary players behind the slaughter of those on 9-11. They should have been decimated years ago, but we have had a lack of spine and fortitude in our leadership. Now those yellow chickens are coming home to roost. Now we march for despots who would use us for their ends rather than protecting our land and families. As BlackFive says, we should just crater all of Syria’s runways, blow up their air and sea capabilities (which would deny the Russians a port) and hit their communications. If you have to attack Syria, do it logically and strategically, not hit and miss while warning them of all intentions.
War with Iran approaches and we cannot shrink from it. They want it and the powers behind them want it. Yes, the Mullahs want to annihilate Israel. But you can’t use Israel as an excuse. Iran is and always has been a threat to us as well. Instead Graham employs fear mongering on Syria, who is not a threat to us and the wrong target:
But Graham has heard the counterarguments. He knows many are skeptical that replacing Assad would install leadership that’s any more favorable to U.S. interests, even in the military friendly Palmetto State. In fact, a common refrain across the country is that the alternative could be far worse.
“Rebel opposition forces are our sworn enemies. We’ve spent billions of dollars in one country trying to wipe them off the face of the planet al-Qaida. And yet we employ the strategy of funding them and giving them weapons in Syria to get Assad?” asked Jesse Graston, who traveled nearly three hours from Rock Hill, S.C., and forked over the $12 in order to corner the senator.
Facing that strain of skepticism, Graham wound up his case on Syria intervention by raising the stakes considerably. He painted a frightening picture of cascading world events that would reverberate far beyond the borders of a civil war in one Middle Eastern country.
If the United States doesn’t deal with Syria, Graham promised Iran would acquire a nuclear weapon by 2014, the King of Jordan would be deposed and Israel would start preparing to protect itself.
“I believe that if we get Syria wrong, within six months — and you can quote me on this,” Graham said, pausing for dramatic effect. “There will be a war between Iran and Israel over their nuclear program.”
But it wouldn’t even end there, Graham surmised. Undoubtedly, he said ominously, the Iranians would share its nuclear technology with U.S. enemies.
“My fear is that it won’t come to America on top of a missile, it’ll come in the belly of a ship in the Charleston or New York harbor,” he said.
In fact, the Syrian Rebels and the Assad regime roundly agree that Obama attacking will have no effect at all. It will change nothing except to bring us further into the conflict, bankrupt us even more and set all of our footing onto WW III. A war that could have been and could still be avoided by removing the primary threat in Iran, saving hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of lives. But the global elite have other plans that involve a total reset of finances, power and geography. That is what is really going on here.
I support Israel with every fiber of my being and I understand why they want Obama to back up his red-line rhetoric. Yes, we should help our ally, but this is the absolute wrong approach and brings on exactly what is being avoided — all out conflict. You might as well dance, you are lighting the nuclear fuse. Obama will now bring in Iran and use Israel as his pretext. Then, when all of this goes off the rails, he will blame the Jews. Anyone can see this coming:
In his round-robin television appearances on Sunday, Secretary of State John Kerry—now the administration’s über-hawk—repeatedly said that bombing Syria would send a message to Iran. As he told Fox News on Sunday:
“The fact is that if we act and if we act in concert, then Iran will know that this nation is capable of speaking with one voice on something like this, and that has serious, profound implications, I think, with respect to the potential of a confrontation over their nuclear program. That is one of the things that is at stake here.”
But — hey — political distractions are important: never let a war go to waste.

Obama’s Syria War Is Really About Iran and Israel
In reality the target has always been Iran. Remember George W’s “Axis of Evil” in 2001? Make no mistake about it, these plans were made far before even that moment in time. The goal is a complete one world government system. Syria and Iran stand in the way of that. They will be taken down and it is very Biblical. Syria will be first, then it will then escalate and bring in Iran.
(The Nation) – The dirty little not-so-secret behind President Obama’s much-lobbied-for, illegal and strategically incompetent war against Syria is that it’s not about Syria at all. It’s about Iran—and Israel. And it has been from the start.
…. poke the Russian bear, shock the Syrian monkey and tease the Iranian lion (and) you just might get eaten ….
Not to in any way, shape or form, support the execrable muslim brother hood, Sayyid Barry Frank Marshall Buraq Hussayn bin Buraq Hussayn bin Hussayn Oogooboogoobama Charles Taylor Samuel Doe Robert Mugabe Davis-Soetoro — but Russia and its wannabe-perilously-pernicious “president,” Putin the Puny, are about as dangerous as is any other systemically-corrupt fifth-rate far-from-free fascist state with some oil and gas — and some old nukes.
Had America a president Putin wouldn’t dare confront us and militarily, wouldn’t last a month if he did. And neither Syria nor Tehrān’s mad mullahs would last a week in a stoush with an enraged and/or engaged America.
(Which we haven’t been since, during his entire, traitorous, “presidency” but particularly toward the end of his life, the traitor Roosevelt sold us out to his beloved “Uncle Joe” Stalin)
I’m afraid the ‘military balance’ between Russia and the West has become far more complex meanwhile because Moscow has got quasi-allies like Hezbollah on its side. I’m sure you know that new-generation strike force operates satellites and other high-techs – all that on global scale. Keeping the suicide motivation in mind, the traditional containment hardly would work. As things develop like that, the judgement is gaining ground the West probably should have completed the Cold war agenda to its logical end first…
The other day Konstantin Artunin, an artist from Arkhangelsk in far northern Russia painted Dimitri Medvedev, Putin’s stooge prime minister, in a bra and panties posing with Puny Pooty, clad in a nightie
Mr Artunin’s painting is the latest in a series entitled “Sacred Monsters,” which includes portraits of Czar Nicolas II, Stalin, Khrushchev, Brezhnev, Gorbachev — and Putin portrayed as a woman in a bra and panties.
All of these are for sale by Saatchi.
But it’s Konstantin Artunin’s masterpiece that caused the fiercest furor when Russian police seized it on August 28 at an exhibition in Saint Petersburg for being “in clear violation of laws against pornography.”
Making fun of Putin constitutes pornography in Russia and Mr Artunin has fled to France.
What is really making fun of Putin these days, however, is reality.
Eighteen months ago, Russia was booming. Its GDP over 5%. But for the last six straight quarters, it’s been all downhill. Growth is barely 1% and the (thread)-bear is headed straight to Hell in a handbasket. Recession looms.
This hard fact despite high oil prices and that Russia is for the moment the world’s largest oil producer/ (10.7 million barrels per day. Saudi Arabia 9.5 million barrels)
The reason? “Putinomics,” the totalitarian/fascist corruption that has Russian wealth fleeing and foreign investment staying away. Foreign Direct Investment) has ceased. Transparency International ranks Russia on a corruption level with Iran and Nigeria.
Russia’s economy depends 100% on oil and gas. There’s nothing else. Who ever bought anything marked “Made in Russia?” Not even Stolichnaya Vodka. That’s made in Latvia.
The August 30 edition of the foreign policy journal, ‘The Diplomat,’ has a piece entitled “Putin’s Russia: The Pretend Great Power.” (http://tinyurl.com/ow3256g) It makes the case that Putin’s pretending to Russia being “a power” is a facade. Russia has neither the military power nor the wealth to be other than a fifth-rate failed state.
Wealth and military power can’t be faked.
Thank God a prestigious journal finally points out that Puny Putin is all bluff and bullsh*t.
And thank God, also, that a brave Russian artist painted him that way. (http://tinyurl.com/ovc9wq)

Forgot to mention: Thanks to http://www.tothepointnews.com ‘s Doctor Jack Wheeler, from who I lifted much of this post. (And who once beat both Putin and his bodyguard in an arm-wrestling contest) B R A:.
That’s fine. May I on my part offer a link to illustrate how a grand strategic retreat could originate to proceed till… eh, someone you still invite to the G8 events would utter: “OK so far, leave them for the time being…”:
With respect, I’d not so impugn Russia — and Russians — as to compare either to Iran under the mad mullahs.
A very large part of the reason, with a bit of a hand from Lech Walesa and the Pope, my old boss, Mr Reagan – without firing a shot – was able to defeat the Soviet Union and put an end to the ridiculous charade that was the “cold war,” was that the Soviets were not psychopaths. Were, it could be argued — and demonstrated — evil — but were neither stupid nor suicidal. Rational men simply do not go to war with a nation that spends half the WORLD’s “defense” budget. (Just in case We The People get involved. As, since VJ day, 1945, we have not)
No such claim – of “rationality” – may be made for, of and/or on behalf of the mad mullahs, who are seeking to issue an invitation to the “twelfth imam” and a short cut to the virgins.
Russia and America are more likely to be on the same side in any actual war with Iran, than we are to be on opposite sides.
/the Soviets were not psychopaths/
I’d actually agree in terms that the political generation with WWII experience was able to show more restraint/rational. On the other hand, the Soviet strategy implied pressuring on the US and its European allies (the most vulnerable point in Nato defense) with nuclear threat while advancing military in other places: South Africa, Central America, South-East Asia, Afghanistan…
The situation in the late USSR itself was more tricky however: from the mid-70th on the military gradually accumulated more and more power at the Party’s elite expense. That had been one of the basic conflicts in the Soviet empire from the very beginning (with the KGB’s MAIN function being to control the armed forces). Stalin, as we know, was keen to ‘resolve’ that conflict in his own way.
Mikhail Gorbachev’s primary mission became pushing his fellow-Soviet generals back – by overwhelming them with the series of ‘disarmament’ initiatives. The resistance he got was really fierce but he succeeded largely due to an interplay with the US administration. However odd, they joined their forces for a while against the common adversary.
After the USSR collapse the generals needed the Caucasus war to re-install their position within the country. Mr Putin was chosen by them to provide both political and legal cover for the blood shedding…
The US is the systemic – say, a deadly one – challenge to the Russian regime itself. There’re no political forces within Russia so far to bring it on the US side strategically. “Common enemy Iran” is more of wishful thinking, really.
That’s roughly the situation we’re in now. If interested you may seek for more details in the texts by Jeff Nyquist…

Syrian Parliament Letter To The US House Of Representatives
/The main factor of 9/11 attacks was the hatred was Wahhabi Jihadists Ideology adopted and financed by Saudis/.
Sorry guys, one must get serious from time to time.
“Hatred” is rather a feature to be exploited, not the actual driving force with operations as large and meticulously elaborated like that.
9/11 happened at the very height of the Washington-Moscow dispute about the US’ intention to leave the ABM treaty. Moscow’s argument was withdrawal would not help against the ‘new security risks’…
I came to the Nato HQ in Brussels (as former Nato research program fellow) three days thereafter to inquire about the backgrounds. An important official – just out of yet another conference session – referred to Ben Laden’s role: “That clearly was beyond his intellectual range…”.
/I believe in fighting our enemies, chief among them being Iran/.
Dear, there’s only one power on earth capable to eliminate the US and the rest of the West in less than one hour – and that is not the poor archaic Persia – that is the gangsters-run Russia. I understand that’s being difficult to pronounce in the political-correctness-plagued West, still that’s an indisputable fact – better to be faced sooner than later.
I’ve always believed that Russia is behind Iran and you have a great point Victor.
