I was expecting to see a photo of Kerry windsurfing. It would make a good split screen with Mr. Yellow Cake.

My respect for General Dempsey increases daily.

At the risk of repeating myself; and exhibiting the symptoms of the dreaded unwarranted optimism disease I have always held hope that,-- and expected the Realist in the BHO administration would overmatch the neocons . I would imagine Sec of Defense Hagels reaction to Kerry et al would have been much the same as General Dempsey . Ever the romantic I still maintain we will not be going to Syria.( Jonst do you have any reaction to Genral Dempsey's push back on the no fly zone ?)


The silver lining in these reports is that apparently, BHO is still mostly clinging to the reality-based side.

For now.

Guess the real question is whether the requisite forces to do a proper campaign & maintain it if actually ordered up?

Amazing how simple honesty is refreshing at highest levels of USA policy making and so short in supply.


It was a one-two punch to the war party. At the G-8 summit, Putin refused to go along with any regime change formulation and made the point that, among the Syrian rebels, are a bunch of cannibals, who not only kill their enemies, but cut them open and eat their intestines in front of cameras. He later equated the rebels with the two jihadists who butchered the young British soldier in broad daylight on the streets of London. People who have a sense of the consequences of real war are opposed, adamently, to letting this Syria situation get out of control. Psychos like John McCain, Robert Menendez and Carl Levin, who are demanding direct US air strikes on Syria and a full blown US intervention to oust Assad clearly have no idea what warfare is all about. They are a menace to civilization.

Isn't it ironic that Putin is the voice of reason on Syria .


Well, Chechnya is in his backyard, so...

America has raghead majority whereabouts?


Its also worthwhile to note that McCain, Levin, and Menendez are all in favor of the same insane amnesty act as well.

Globalists through and through, no matter what party they subscribe to.

YT, just who are you referring to with the racist comment? If you are referring to America's Muslims there are 3,000,000 or so of them. That is far more than in Chechnya.
