THREE YEARS AGO:
ALEPPO Three days before the Neocons worked their magic:
Does anyone in the Neocon Establishment have a clue on what they have done?
It's a mixed bag. You have true ideologues like Graham, McCain, and King who will never be convinced anything we've done is wrong, this even as in McCain's case where he has been publicly humiliated many times for his views and actions. These are mirrored on the Dems side by people like Rice and Powers who ardently push their R2P agenda. And you have Obama who, as with the majority of other issues, supports it reluctantly but still does support it.
You have others in D.C. who support the actions because their states and constituents, and more importantly their jobs, depend on the money generated by the MIC. Also, you have guys like Chuck Schumer, Steve Israel, Ted Cruz, and Mario Cuomo who are willing to sacrifice US interest for others nation's interests.
You also have the media that supports these corrupt policies.
And finally you have the US public, conditioned by years of this stuff, apparently unaffected (personally) by the insanity, who view all of this stuff as spectators rooting for a mediocre sports team. Rooting for their team to win but not getting all that upset when they lose which they do often.
What all these people fail to realize is the opportunity costs they suffer from the madness, the trillions of dollars lost for no productive good that could have been used to advance science and medicine, save lives here and around the world, build, repair, and replace antique and disintegrating water systems, roads, energy grid, and transportation systems that currently make the US look like a third world country when compared with other states that have constantly been repairing and upgrading theirs.
So the neocons and the liberal hawks will continue along fat dumb and happy despite the death counts that grow daily as an effect of our actions in places like Yemen, Iraq/Syria, and Libya, and despite the rising costs generously donated by the American people. They will be supported by the majority of the sheeple who don't realize the extent of what they are losing, who, given there is no draft, feel they really don't have any shit in the game, and by those silly fools who argue for R2P or 'save the women' or any number of other mindless memes not realizing that whenever the US decides to intervene it always results in the displacement and/or deaths of the most vulnerable sectors of the population. The sheeple will continue supporting their team hoping that sometime in the not too distant future their team will finally get a win.

Netanyahu says 'Israel will not be used as a punching bag' in accusing the Obama administration of organizing the anti-settlement legislation at the UN.
Israeli sources indicate they have 'iron clad' proof provided by Arab sources proving Obama's culpability. However, in interviews on MSNBC they state that their sources are privileged and can't be revealed at this time.
They indicated they will only be revealed to the new Trump administration.
One assumes this decision is predicated on the belief that Trump will be more predisposed to support the Israeli position.
Or, on the belief that Trump is just stupid enough to believe them.

In a nation of laws and with courts with rights to appeal, why should anyone be able to gain favor and pardon from a politician on his way out of office? To me this is total bullshit. A president is not a king or anointed by god. Will we ever grow up?ReplyDelete
R2P = Responsibility to Protect
It's a concept thought up by European elites and the UN and is endorsed on a selective basis by the Idaho faux farming community.
As with all well meaning initiatives it often suffers from misuse. The R2P initiatives wording is usually general and based on 'facts' that are often controversial or denied by one side or the other. These initiatives can easily turn into self-serving power moves by the Big Boys to advance agendas that are at times more political and economic than humanitarian.
Libya is a good example.
R2P is short hand for the ordinance passed by the City of San Francisco allowing transients to pee on the public sidewalks, like Quirk's dogs do.....Right to Piss Ordinance.Delete
R2F Ordinance is up for discussion by the City Supervisors next month....quirk's dogs also do this in public as well....
San Francisco SucksDelete

Awesome post! I've been trying to come up with a good internet business idea for a while. Instead, I have come up with a great non-internet business idea, which kind of sucks in a way because this idea requires a lot of money, as opposed to a full internet-based business that might not require that much to get it started. I'm not giving up though. I recently started a blog where I plan to document my steps for starting my company. I figured it would keep me motivated and force me to keep at it. I also hope it will motivate the readers to keep trying to accomplish their goals. By the way, I love your site. I'll be adding it to my list of interesting blogs.ReplyDelete
Cianix Male Enhancement
You need to get in touch with our Quirk immediately !Delete
He's rolling in money, is a sucker for a good lookin' skirt, and was a successful advertising executive for years before turning to blogging. And, he loves dogs too.
Treat him right and you'll have clay in your hands to mold to your desires. You'll be able to get him to fund your operation and do the advertising campaign as well.
I'll be your reference to Quirk and Quirk often uses me as his reference to someone like you in the most exciting and mutually profitable circumstances.
Male Enhancement is something I'm certain Quirk will be interested in, though he's quite enhanced right now. Just take a look at his ring finger sometime.
Get in contact with Quirk !
Best of luck and good fortune !
But before you get involved with Quirk, Rosiee, I must tell you Q isn't all he sometimes seems. He doesn't give a damn about women.Delete
And glad to see you, Schmee, are now on record as saying what you've always hinted at:
that 'saving the women....is a mindless meme'....that 'saving the women' is an argument of silly fools....
I knew Don Quixote, and let me tell you Quirky, you ain't no Don Quixote....nor are you of the stuff that made William Wallace, ancestor of my wife....his genes still flowing in her blood....she KNOWS a man when she sees one and has been with me 35 years....because I adore, protect, and serve her....
Your betters, in a better time, thought much differently than you, whose only allegiance is to the gossip in Ye Olde Mafia Barber Shoppe:
The code of chivalry
As the pope's warriors, knights were bound by a code of honor, the code of chivalry. Each knight had to swear that he would defend the weak, the poor, widows, orphans, and the oppressed. He was to be courteous, especially to women; brave; loyal to his leaders; and concerned about the welfare of his subordinates, or those of lesser rank and position. Quoted by Grant Uden, in A Dictionary of Chivalry, the knight's code of conduct was fixed in a knightly prayer carved in stone at the cathedral of Chartres in France, one that expresses the chivalric ideal:
Most Holy Lord, Almighty Father … thou who hast permitted on earth the use of the sword to repress the malice [evil] of the wicked and defend justice … cause thy servant here before thee, by disposing [turning] his heart to goodness, never to use this sword or another to injure anyone unjustly; but let him use it always to defend the just and right.
Similarly, in the late nineteenth century, French scholar Léon Gautier listed, in his book Chivalry, what he called the Decalogue (or Ten Commandments) that governed the conduct of a knight under the code of chivalry:
Unswerving belief in the church and obedience to her teachings
Willingness to defend the church
Respect and pity for the weak and steadfastness in defending them
Love of country
Refusal to retreat before the enemy
Unceasing and merciless war against the infidel
Strict obedience to the feudal overlord, so long as those duties did not conflict with duty to God
Loyalty to truth and to the pledged word
Generosity in giving
Championship of the right and the good, in every place and at all times, against the forces of evil
To generations of readers, knighthood and chivalry became almost synonymous with, or identical to, respect for and devotion to women, through epic poems and novels such as Sir Walter Scott's The Talisman (1825). The following passage from Scott's novel, in which a Scottish Crusader named Kenneth is addressing a Saracen (Muslim), is typical of the chivalric attitude toward women:
Saracen, replied the Crusader, thou speakest like one who never saw a woman worthy the affection of a soldier. Believe me, couldst thou look upon those of Europe, to whom, after Heaven, we of the order of knighthood vow fealty [faithfulness] and devotion, thou wouldst loathe for ever the poor sensual slaves who form thy harem [the women of a Muslim household]. The beauty of our fair ones gives point to our spears, and edge to our swords; their words are our law; and as soon will a lamp shed luster [a glow of light] when unkindled [the fire is put out], as a knight distinguish himself by feats of arms, having no mistress of his affection.
