21-7-b: I can read on this very page the contribution of someone calling himself "neversubmit" who posts conspiacy theories and who refuses to admit he is wrong when he is shown that the particular conspiracy theory that he has invested time and effort defending has been debunked, and who instead tries to distract from the fact that he has been shown to be wrong


Your mindreading has failed you, the neversubmit handle just means I don't submit headlines to Fark.com  How can I say I'm wrong when I never said I was right?

FTFY.

/Agrees we should stay out of Syria, actually.

right, trying to assassinate a POTUS is just saying something mean. revisionist history, this is how it works?

NATO didn't believe that crap, and neither do I.

U.S. Strikes Iraq for Plot to Kill BushBy David Von Drehle and R. Jeffrey Smith
Washington Post Staff Writers
Sunday, June 27, 1993; Page A01


U.S. Navy ships launched 23 Tomahawk missiles against the headquarters of the Iraqi Intelligence Service yesterday in what President Clinton said was a "firm and commensurate" response to Iraq's plan to assassinate former president George Bush in mid-April.


Damn that Clinton, i knew he was just another Bush lackey.

For some reason "false flag" sounds a lot less derpy when applied to muslim extremists intent on setting up an oppressive theocracy.  Gassing their own people?  Eh, I can buy that.

But regardless, how do we expect to find these chemical weapons and confirm their destruction without a hell of a lot of boots on the ground?  Even if we are sure of a site and bomb it to dust, they'll say we blew up a milk factory or a hospital or a factory-sized day care center.

And say we do manage to get a coalition together and oust Assad for his crimes, then what?  There's still a civil war.

Oh dear GOD.

Okay. Let me lay this out for you. You put forward an infamous hoax that was created to slander a PMC and implicate the United States as engineering the war in Syria.

It was pointed out to you this was such.

You took the route of you really didn't believe this, you're just asking questions.

Wolf_Blitzer: neversubmit: Outrageous Muff: neversubmit: Hackers Expose U.S. False Flag to Frame Syria

Phil, we've got a new offer. It's about Syria again. Qataris propose an attractive deal and swear that the idea is approved in Washington. We'll have to deliver a CW to Homs, a Soviet origin g-shell [sic] from Libya similar to those that Assad should have. They want us to deploy our Ukrainian personnel that should speak Russian and make a video record. Frankly, I don't think it is a good idea but the sums proposed are enormous.

Apik0r0s: Nemo's Brother: neversubmit: Nemo's Brother: Onkel Buck: Im just going to enjoy watching all of Barrys supportive doves turn into hawks

Some will just vanish for a while.  A large number of the usual Total Farkers have been very silent about Obama lately.

I still support those (Bush) and these (Obama) actions no matter who the figure head. These things must be done, I don't expect most people to understand.

What, pray tell, is the end game? How do we win here with intervention?

Chaos. Israel wants chaos in its neighbors, doesn't care how, just chaos. And what Israel wants, we do, that's what AIPAC pays all of our leaders for. Anyone wants to buck, and forget the money they picked up, well, they can deal with the media.

AIPAC are the bagmen, media are the legbreakers. Stranglehold. More war for Israel.

Who did trick us into invading Iraq after 9/11? Is Judith Miller not Jewish? How about the Sulzbergers who own the New York Times, who took the unprecedented step of allowing her carte blanche to print whatever she liked on the front page with no fact checking at all?

Since Kerry is Sec. of State I would imagine he will win this one, like he won in VN, by shooting someone in the back.
 
2013-08-26 02:26:22 PM  
I don't think most people understand how the Syria situation will almost certainly escalate very quickly.  Russia has long been Syria's ally and the US and NATO have been encroaching on Russia's oil and gas industry for many years.  Syria is their line in the sand.

The US will weigh its options heavily in order to more accurately gauge Russia's temperature.  A pointless resolution will first be introduced to the UN, with Russia and China voting a big NO.  But not to fear, NATO will most eagerly run with the 'humanitarian' torch.  The process should take a few weeks and buy Russia some time.

I'm not sure that Syria's air defenses were ever that comprehensive, but they are definitely not capable of shielding against what is to come.  Russia has to defend Syria from the outset as there is not much point in aiding a bombed-out ally.  Iran should wait on the sidelines to see what develops so as not to invite an attack on itself, but will probably be drawn in soon enough.  And is that the point at which China gets involved?

This Cold War confrontation has been 50+ years in the making.  It WILL NOT be a proxy war circa Korea or Vietnam because Russia cannot allow Syria to fall.  They will not toss Assad a few AK-47s and hope for the best, US air superiority and the effectiveness of their non-nuke arsenal guarantees that Syria would be a smoldering ruins within days.

Kerry to give statement on Syria at 2:30 ET. Must be lame or Obama would do it himself....

Sorry to post a Faux link.  http://video.foxnews.com/v/2553565088001/

Nothing on CNN and MSNBC says WATCH LIVE: PresidentObama to award Medal of Honor to Army Soldier.
