Oh, Right..... More ______Weapons. How Convenient.

Just the other day, Obama was making a statement to the media about how he didn't want to rush into a military attack on Syria, and that there were other options. Aside from the glaring issue that most international experts don't believe the Syria-attacked-its-own-citizens-with-chemical-weapons storyline, what Syria hasn't done is attack the US in any way, so military intervention would be (another) violation of international law, just as it was in Iraq.

And speaking of Iraq, this story just reeks of the fabricated bullshit they trotted out to justify the unprovoked invasion there. Frankly, it makes no sense. There is no pay-off for the Syrian government to launch such an attack against its own people. As Journalist Michael Rivero writes:

"Assad had been requesting, for months, for a special United Nations Chemical Weapons investigation team to come to Syria to check out earlier allegations that his government had used chemical weapons. The United Nations finally agreed. So why would Assad be so stupid as to carry out a chemical weapons attack on women and children the very day the UN chemical weapons inspectors arrive, just miles from where they are staying? And the answer is, Assad would not be that stupid. This chemical attack was carried out by the hired mercenaries to frame on Assad, and women and children were targeted to maximize the shock value for propaganda purposes....The gain is all on the side of the US Government desperate to get the war agenda going again."

Veteran's Today writer Tony Cartalucci reminds us that "as far back as 2007, it was a documented fact that the West, including the United States and its allies Saudi Arabia and Israel, conspired to use terrorists drawn from the ranks of the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda in an attempt to overthrow the governments of Iran and Syria."

And Washington's Blog notes that  "given the well-documented fact that the U.S. has been planning regime change in Syria for 20 years straight – and planned to use false ploys for 50 years – it is worth being skeptical until all of the evidence is in.  Indeed, many are asking whether this is Iraq War 2.0..."

The war industries that Wall Street loves so dearly could really use another war. In fact, these industries and their elite stockholders depend on continual war-making to remain profitable. (Not to mention all the members of Congress who personally profit from war.) Attacking Syria has nothing to do with "defending the defenseless", or "defending America", or any of the other bullshit soundbites the elites like to toss out. This is about a long-planned regime change, just as it was in Iraq, for reasons having to do with resources and control of the region. Period.

And the psychopaths who pulled it off in Iraq not only got off scot-free, but they profited obscenely from it, to boot. So why wouldn't they do it again? There is no accountability, no justice from this government!  The only people who are "brought to justice" are the whistle-blowers who expose the crimes, the fraud, and the way Gov-Corp really operates. They, like us, are the expendable ones.

(UPDATE, 8/26/13: The U.S. is giving all signs of preparing for a unilateral military strike on Syria after an alleged chemical weapons attack last week. Any move to attack Syria could entangle American involvement in a brutal civil war...)

And then there's this coincidence...or is it a CT?

A couple years ago, the POS said we'd be out of Afghanistan by 2014.

Didn't say there would not be a war anywhere...just not one in Afghanistan.

SO now we have this POS uttering Bushisms like "Our plan is working" and we all thought it was the invasion of Iraq to free them. Instead the "plan" was to divy up oil among west, Europe and China.

Now we hear we'll be out of Afghanistan...but into Syria.

And the beat goes on...

Well Anna, to be fair, Deadeye and Georgie-boy had a chance to enrich their friends. Why not allow a poor, up and coming minority who suffered greatly as a youth (!?) get his come-uppance and take care of his friends at the same time?

It's sad that he forgets how things were for himself and his friends that he has to screw others to enjoy some sort of mal-directed vengeance on a class of people he blames for the past suffering caused by other, long dead Americans.

Isn't that what makes this country what it is today...a cesspool of greed, corruption and murder?

The American Dream has become a Sam Peckinpah/Ridley Scott etc. adaptation in real life.

Rather, I think, those in power have become a corporate/political "Human Centipede" feeding off the feces of each other with no way of extricating themselves from the previous "provider"...and no desire to stop.

Greed is good! I got mine, you get yours. But if you get in the way of me getting mine,look out ________ (fill in your own victims of the last 33 years).

The American/Global Corporate Empire is now!

Oh yeah. Let's see if BArrt can kill off and maim more American Soldiers than the Dick and George Show.

He who dies with the most fatalities wins the "hearts and minds" of a grateful Corporate America.

FUCK them All!
