    4. Q: What would have happened to the US Marines charged with murder in Haditha, Iraq, if they had been tried in Iraqi courts instead of in the US?

      A: they would have been convicted and imprisoned in Iraq.

      That is what Robert "Draft Dodger" Peterson's policy prescription for Iraq would have entailed, for US soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines. Good thing that both GW Bush and BH Obama are smarter than Robert "Draft Dodger" Peterson. Both care more about US troops and their well being than does Robert "Draft Dodger" Peterson.

    1. Al-Marj, Libya—Libya is ready to cooperate with Egypt in striking the IS terrorists in Libya who beheaded 21 innocent Egyptians in Libya on Sunday, preferring the use of air strikes rather than ground troops.

      Major General Khalifa Haftar, Commander of the Operation Dignity, vowed to be ready to provide all support and cooperation to Egypt in the war against terrorism.

      Speaking by phone to the Egyptian TV channel Dream, Haftar said
      “Libyans are helping the Egyptian army to take revenge on these terrorist forces because Cairo is considered to be a Libyan city”.

      “We strongly support Egyptian military intervention to strike Daaesh and other terrorist groups,”

      he added.

      Haftar said the Egyptian military intervention should not be in the form of ground troops but air power intervention stressing that he would like to see such cooperation with the Libyan national army immediate, clear and not secretive.

      He also said he would be pleased to see the international coalition striking ISIS in Libya.

  6. Another vote for the Rat Doctrine


    Keep our troops out of the fighting in Syria

    February 16, 2015 12:00 AM

    We have been told there are about 800,000 Syrian refugees in Jordan alone.
    Of that number how many are able-bodied men? Are those men being recruited to take up arms and fight for their homeland?

    There are many Syrians fighting the Islamic State; however, how many of the fighting men are coming out of the refugee camps?

    I heard recently that Sen. Lindsey Graham wants to send 10,000 American troops into the area to fight the Islamic State.
    Why is it that we Americans are called on to engage in battle for other people’s homeland?

    Jordan is going to receive many millions of dollars from the United States to care for the refugees. Jordan alone cannot deal with all of the refugees. There are also refugee camps in Lebanon and Turkey.

    Perhaps training more of the refugees would be a more productive endeavor than constantly training the Iraqis.
    I don’t want to see more American men sent to fight when there are thousands of people in the area who could be fighting for their own land.

    NY Times discovers that Saddam did have WMDs after all
    By Thomas Lifson

    President Bush “lied” about Iraq’s WMDs – thus goes the article of faith among liberals, endlessly repeated by the likes of Ron Fournier and Jon Stewart as a kind of progressive catechism. Except that it is a libel, as even the New York Times indirectly acknowledges today.

    C.J. Chivers and Eric Schmitt write:

    The Central Intelligence Agency, working with American troops during the occupation of Iraq, repeatedly purchased nerve-agent rockets from a secretive Iraqi seller, part of a previously undisclosed effort to ensure that old chemical weapons remaining in Iraq did not fall into the hands of terrorists or militant groups, according to current and former American officials.

    The extraordinary arms purchase plan, known as Operation Avarice, began in 2005 and continued into 2006, and the American military deemed it a nonproliferation success. It led to the United States’ acquiring and destroying at least 400 Borak rockets, one of the internationally condemned chemical weapons that Saddam Hussein’s Baathist government manufactured in the 1980s but that were not accounted for by United Nations inspections mandated after the 1991 Persian Gulf war.

    Note that despite the firestorm of slander the Bush administration endured over its “lies” on WMD, the president never acted to declassify the information on the CIA buyback program, and as a result today it is an article of faith on the left that he lied us into war.

    At the time of the invasion of Iraq, there was no way to know that:

    These munitions were remnants of an Iraqi special weapons program that was abandoned long before the 2003 invasion,

    But:

    they turned up sporadically during the American occupation in buried caches, as part of improvised bombs or on black markets.

    American Thinker reported on the WMD evidence found in Iraq 11 years ago.

    The CIA’s program appears to have put at risk soldiers who were not warned of the risks they faced in handling these potent weapons:

    Not long after Operation Avarice had secured its 400th rocket, in 2006, American troops were exposed several times to other chemical weapons. Many of these veterans said that they had not been warned by their units about the risks posed by the chemical weapons and that their medical care and follow-up were substandard, in part because military doctors seemed unaware that chemical munitions remained in Iraq.

    In some cases, victims of exposure said, officers forbade them to discuss what had occurred. The Pentagon now says hundreds of other veterans reported on health-screening forms that they believed they too had been exposed during the war.

    Aaron Stein, an associate fellow at the Royal United Services Institute, said the belated acknowledgment of a chemical-rocket purchases, as well as the potentially worrisome laboratory analysis of the related sarin samples, raised questions about the military’s commitment to the well-being of those it sent to war.

    We have been fed a line of bull over Saddam and WMDs.

  11. UN: Proven Ties Between ISIS And Israel

    A new report from the UN reveals that the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) maintained regular contact with members of ISIS since May 2013. The UN identified contact with IDF forces and ISIS soldiers.


    In a new report from the UN, it is revealed that the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) were maintaining regular contact with members of the so-called Islamic State since May of 2013. Initial reports from the IDF stated that this was only for medical care for civilians, but that story fell apart when the UN observers identified direct contact between IDF forces and ISIS soldiers, including giving medical care to ISIS fighters.

    Observations even included the transfer of two crates from the IDF to ISIS forces, the contents of which have not been confirmed at this time. Further the UN report identified what the Syrians label a crossing point of forces between Israel and ISIS, a point of concern brought before the UN Security Council.

    This report from the UN strengthens the claims by the Syrian regime that Israel is heavily involved in operations within the nation.

    Fearing leaks, U.S. 'limiting' information it shares with Israel on Iran nuke talks

    The Americans fear Netanyahu will make use of the information given to Israel for his own political needs, and will try to undermine the talks between Iran and the big powers.

    As a result of the recent tension between the United States and Israel, the White House has begun to limit the scope, quality and depth of the information it shares with Jerusalem about the progress of the talks with Iran about its nuclear program, senior Israeli officials involved in the issue have told Haaretz...

  23. Evidently, they have a reason for their concerns:

    The decision to reduce the exchange of sensitive information about the Iran talks was prompted by concerns that Netanyahu’s office had given Israeli journalists sensitive details of the U.S. position, including a U.S. offer to allow Iran to enrich uranium with 6,500 or more centrifuges as part of a final deal.

    Obama administration officials believed . . . . . . .

  24. Fearing leaks, U.S. 'limiting' information it shares with Israel on Iran nuke talks

    The Americans fear Netanyahu will make use of the information given to Israel for his own political needs, and will try to undermine the talks between Iran and the big powers.


    You only have to watch a four minute video of Netanyahu in his own words and you know enough to keep him out of the loop.

    2. Interesting point of view Deuce, by cutting out Israel from the talks?

      Israel is NOT BOUND BY ANY AGREEMENT.

      Israel should be included as Iran's threats are directed at her.

      But if Israel is excluded, then Israel will determine what is right for her, regardless of any pussy appeasing deal the Iranian loving president in the Whitehouse signs.

      Israel should, at it's liking, start taking out Revolutionary Guard targets in Syria as well as bombing the Iranian plutonium plant it's building in Syria as well

      It's sad to watch.

      The lesson of that great book is life's a bitch, a mixture of good and bad, and not to get hung up, and think you can 'fix' it, and that something somewhere is all the fault, and that one should chill out a bit, and do the best with it one can with it, perhaps just at home with a warm family circle, otherwise one is liable to add to the woes.

  25. Good to see Egypt bombing ISIS.

    A coalition is forming.

    ISIS is making too many enemies.

    1. According to The Egyptian Government ISIS and Hamas are twin feathers from the same wing of terror, the Moslem Brotherhood.

      That's why Egypt 2 weeks ago declared hamas a terrorist group.

      Hamas, the 1/2 of the Unity government of the Palestinians that America supports and funds.

      America who legally say Hamas is a terrorist organization pays it....

      In violation of US law.

  26. Try to talk about the policies we need in a depressed world economy, and someone is sure to counter with the specter of Weimar Germany, supposedly an object lesson in the dangers of budget deficits and monetary expansion. But the history of Germany after World War I is almost always cited in a curiously selective way. We hear endlessly about the hyperinflation of 1923, when people carted around wheelbarrows full of cash, but we never hear about the much more relevant deflation of the early 1930s, as the government of Chancellor Brüning — having learned the wrong lessons — tried to defend Germany’s peg to gold with tight money and harsh austerity.

    And what about what happened before the hyperinflation, when the victorious Allies tried to force Germany to pay huge reparations? That’s also a tale with a lot of modern relevance, because it has a direct bearing on the crisis now brewing over Greece.

    The point is that now, more than ever, it is crucial that Europe’s leaders remember the right history. If they don’t, the European project of peace and democracy through prosperity will not survive.

    About those reparations: The basic story here is that Britain and France, instead of viewing the newly established German democracy as a potential partner, treated it as a conquered enemy, demanding that it make up their own wartime losses. This was deeply unwise — and the demands placed on Germany were impossible to meet, for two reasons. First, Germany’s economy had already been devastated by the war. Second, the true burden on that shrunken economy would — as John Maynard Keynes explained in his angry, powerful book “The Economic Consequences of the Peace” — be far greater than the direct payments to the vengeful Allies.

    In the end, and inevitably, the actual sums collected from Germany fell far short of Allied demands. But the attempt to levy tribute on a ruined nation — incredibly, France actually invaded and occupied the Ruhr, Germany’s industrial heartland, in an effort to extract payment — crippled German democracy and poisoned relations with its neighbors.

    Which brings us to the confrontation between Greece and its creditors.

    You can argue that Greece brought its problems on itself, although it had a lot of help from irresponsible lenders. At this point, however, the simple fact is that Greece cannot pay its debts in full. Austerity has devastated its economy as thoroughly as military defeat devastated Germany — real Greek G.D.P. per capita fell 26 percent from 2007 to 2013, compared with a German decline of 29 percent from 1913 to 1919.

    Despite this catastrophe, Greece is making payments to its creditors, running a primary surplus — an excess of revenue over spending other than interest — of around 1.5 percent of G.D.P. And the new Greek government is willing to keep running that surplus. What it is not willing to do is meet creditor demands that it triple the surplus, and keep . . . . . .

      "government whose leaders are, from everything I’ve heard, sincerely committed to democratic ideals."

      so, because a democratically elected government doesn't want to honor its contracts, why that's just fine?

  28. Israeli-US public sparring over the Iranian issue continued Monday, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asking, if the emerging agreement with Tehran is a good one, why hide the details? Netanyahu’s comments at the annual meeting in Jerusalem of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations came the same day that The Washington Post’s David Ignatius reported that the US had decided to “reduce the exchange of sensitive information about the Iran talks,” because of a concern that Netanyahu’s office had leaked “sensitive details” of the US position.

    Just as Iran knows what agreement it is being offered, it is only natural that Israel should know as well, since it is the most threatened by a nuclear Iran, Netanyahu said; adding that Israel’s consistent position is that the proposed accords are a danger to Israel’s security.

    “But if there is someone who thinks it is a good deal, why is there a need to hide it?” he asked.

  31. Libya is where the Islamic State group has built up its strongest presence outside Syria and Iraq. Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi is lobbying Europe and the United States for a coordinated international response similar to the coalition air campaign in those countries.

    "What is happening in Libya is a threat to international peace and security," said El-Sissi.

  32. Notice the Lobby does not post a single comment on the content of the video. None to this point.

    It is all about the poor Jews being singled out by everyone that doesn’t love them. They are being thrown under the bus, setting up to be libeled, killed, destroyed, thrown down wells, hit with rockets, subjected to genocide,

    Israel has become my Moby Dick but not a peep about Netanyahu’s lies to the Conga Line and them lapping it up and the net results are US military casualties in the tens of thousands and Iraq ruined with casualties in the hundreds of thousands, but it is all about the poor misunderstood Jews. We just don’t get it.

    All of this diversion and nonsense from the two that stand tall with America and Israel of course.

  33. Every Zionist operative, Netanyahu being at the head of the claque, wants the US to fight the wars that will advance the myth and the dream. That was the Neocon plan presented to General Clark and it is obvious to all who have followed the developments since the revelation and exposition of it.

    Netanyahu wants the US to attack Iran because according to Netanyahu, “The greatest threat facing the world today is the marriage between religious fanaticism and the weapons of mass destruction.” Well said. It describes Israel, the only aggressive power in the ME armed to the teeth and with the ultimate trove of WMDs, nuclear weapons.

    1. Israel knows that the appeasement of Iran and a deal that allows Iran to enrich uranium and covertly enrich plutonium, coupled with both Iran's takeover of Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon, Syria and several other arab nations will allow Iran to continue to fund and supply Hezbollah and Hamas with more and more lethal weapons.

      Israel has not expanded it's borders, it has given back more land than it now holds today.

      Iran is seeking the genocide of Israel and the jews, but you don't care, you want Israel to become the "non-zionist" entity you dream of...
