He just keeps saying it. “You know, Senator Chuck Hagel, when he was senator, Senator Chuck Hagel, now secretary of defense, and when I was a senator, we opposed the president’s decision to go into Iraq, but we know full well how that evidence was used to persuade all of us that…

Everybody wants an Insurrection. But you can’t all have it. At least not peaceinsurrection.com, as of earlier this morning.  Need to protect the “brand” from Code Pink.  It’s mine now.

It’s a really catchy toon, I hear. The Boycott Divestment and Sanctions crew sure knows how to fire up a crowd. Oh wait, they were the crowd. BDS head draws fire after defending ‘Shoot the Jew’ chant: An anti-Israel rally at a South African University that saw protesters chanting “Shoot the Jew,” which was…

Well, there is joy in Mudville, because George Zimmerman has another legal problem. The details are murky and unclear, but that’s not stopping the “I told you so” reaction, as if a new problem proves guilt on a past problem. It really is a horror show to watch (Twitter feed embedded…

How convenient. How abusive of the memory of those who fell, a clear ploy to gain political advantage from the significance of that date. The vote will be on Cloture for the resolution, not the resolution itself. It’s an even higher hurdle. https://twitter.com/susanferrechio/status/377131547725295616 Update 8 p.m. — Facing mounting opposition and Obama signaling in television…

Posted by
9/9/2013 at 11:52am
The threat of possible military action, as attenuated as Congressional authorization now seems, has led to what may be the endgame. John Kerry floated the idea of Syria turning over its chemical weapons or else, the Russians seized on the idea, and Syria in principle has accepted it: https://twitter.com/BreakingNews/status/377094774282801152 It may very well be…

Forgotten History: Assad has the blood of American soldiers on his hands

Posted by  ▪  September 9, 2013

The notion that Assad is only Syria’s problem ignores the history of the Iraq insurgency, Lebanese assassinations, and the global Iranian-Hezbollah war against Israel and the United States.

One of the reasons most often cited why the United States should not get involved in any way despite the use of chemical weapons by Syrian government forces is that Assad may be a brutal thug inside Syria, but he poses no threat outside Syria. Indeed, Assad’s brutality inside Syria long pre-dates…
