Thank you. I would love if that story were true. The Bulletin article you offer seems seems to doubt it.For others interested, the story is here: http://www.stripes.com/news/special-reports/features/cold-war-missileers-refute-okinawa-near-launch-1.385439

Finally a clear article that Senators can read. But he buries his point: When America achieves energy independence, then we'll be able to stop wars for the sake of the Middle East. Strategically critical.

hmmm. Wonder were the commander in chief fits in this theoretical authority?

" One proposed way to get around the White House’s long-standing objection to striking the Assad regime without a U.N. Security Council resolution would be to carry out the strikes covertly and without public acknowledgment, the official said."

that attack took place without a strong uproar domestically . . . seems puzzling to say the least.

The antiwar movement is weaker than it was. Part of the reason for that is that the media have turned entirely towards war.

I wrote my senators and Congresswoman at the time via the handy tiny boxes on their web sites. No reply yet.

Imagine,

Don't forget the Israeli angle, that we the U.S. are their b*eatch and our White House, Congress, State and the CIA bowing and scraping and doing their Israeli bidding at their Israeli beckon hegemonic call, like a bunch of Harlequin court jesters with their face-paint and floppy printed caps before their master.

I'm tired of seeing U.S. kids dying for some other nation's idiocy, all because of a bunch of spineless U.S. politicians who IMO belong in U.S. prison cells for their betrayal of trust.

gosh it is hard to read that typeface...

Generalfeldmarschall von Hindenburg

I'm not sure how popular some of these governments are. See Ukraine, Libya, Iraq, &c.

Generalfeldmarschall von Hindenburg

I still can't get my head around this: The US is supporting the most fanatical elements of an Arab society - pretty much openly - and yet people are all worked up about Russia. I mean...who the heck believes that Trump is a Russian mole? It's right out of Idiocracy.
I blame the media gleischaltung of the 90s (Oh- I'm sorry- that was 'deregulation' wasn't it? Good for competition, that's right) that was pushed by the first Clinton administration. The reign of George II only exacerbated it.
It's really crazy that we have a plethora of well informed alternate sources online, but people are still getting their 'guidance' from CNN, Fox and the rest and the phony 'liberal/conservative' Punch and Judy show. If someone cited this blog on MSNBC, Racheal Maddow would screech about 'conspiracy theory'.

different clue

Generalfeldmarschall von Hindenburg,

Many Clintonite Leaders and their MSM spokesfolk sell it. And their Clintonite followers believe it.

Or worse, the qualifications for elected congressional office have eroded such that basic competencies in history, miltary history, geography, global economics etc let alone the law, are of no interest to the ALEC purses whose sole requirement is one who will pass pre-written legislative bills after the required wine, dine, and PAC donation, and similar expectations of the meek and eunich public in tow. In election campaigns we rarely see disclosure or even argument on the basis of fundamental qualifications and lack thereof for the office. In other words, who is vetting the people sitting on the committees supposedly vetting the executive and administrative appointments?
