You Cost America a Great Deal This Past Week, Mr.  President 

Charlie Daniels Sept. 4,  2013

In my soon to be 77 years as a citizen of the United States of  America, having lived through Japan’s sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, the dark  days of WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Watergate, 9/11 and all the other serious and  profound events our beloved nation has been involved in over the last three  quarters of a century, I have to say with all sincerity that I have never seen a  president as confused, befuddled, impotent, insincere and as out of his depth as  Barack Obama has become in dealing with the Syrian issue.

Senate Foreign Relations Panel Approves Military  Action in Syria

Julie Wilson September 4,  2013

US inches one step closer to war with Syria

Wednesday the Senate Foreign Relations Committee approved  authorization of US military action in Syria. While the vote still needs to be  approved by the full Senate next week, the action is a slap in the face for a  majority of Americans who oppose any sort of military intervention in the Middle  Eastern country.

Congress Prepares Resolution Allowing Obama to Attack  Syria

Kurt Nimmo September 4, 2013

Constitutional scholar: resolution eerily like previous Gulf of  Tonkin resolution

Gulf of  Tonkin false flag resulted in the Vietnam War that killed more  than 3 million Southeast Asians and nearly 60,000  Americans.

Despite Secretary of State John Kerry’s assurance that Arab countries will pay for an  attack on Syria, opposition to the ill-conceived  operation is growing.

The National Review Online quotes Rep. Matt Salmon of Arizona. Salmon said hundreds of constituents – with the  exception of two – have called his office urging him to resist the move in  Congress to vote in favor of attacking Syria.

“I don’t see any national-security imperative for our country at  all. Both sides in this equation are bad actors,” Salmon said. “Other than  saving face for the president, I don’t understand what we would be doing,” he  added.

Salmon also told the NRO few believe Obama’s strikes will be  surgical. “Nobody believes this is going  to be a couple surgical strikes” he said dismissively.

The Arizona congressman said that he believes Obama will flaunt the  will of Congress and attack Syria if Congress fails to issue an authorization.  It will be a full-blown constitutional  crisis if Obama overrides the will of Congress and would represent the “most  significant flouting of separation of powers in this nation,” the congressman  said.

Regardless of polls showing an overwhelming  number of Americans opposing any military action against Syria, on Wednesday the Senate worked overtime to draft a resolution  allowing Obama to strike the Arab nation under what the Washington Times described as “very tight circumstances.”

The resolution – drafted by Democrat Senator Robert Menendez and  Republican counterpart Bob Corker of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee –  provides Obama with the ability to “use the armed forces of the United States as  he determines to be necessary and appropriate in a limited and tailored manner  against legitimate military targets in Syria.”

“Our negotiations have led to a much narrower authorization that  provides for the appropriate use of force while limiting the scope and duration  of military action, prohibiting boots on the ground, and requiring the Obama  administration to submit their broader plan for Syria,” Corker said in a  statement late Tuesday, according to the Times

Louis Fisher, scholar in residence at the Constitution Project and  former long-time expert for the Congressional Research Service on separation of  powers issues, doubts the resolution will impose significant limitation on Obama  and the Pentagon.

“What could possibly be the meaning of ‘limited and tailored?’ I  doubt if I’ve ever seen the word ‘tailored’ in a bill,” Fisher said. “Even if  the ‘intent’ of Congress is a limited war, war has its own  momentum.”

The resolution is reminiscent of the 1964 Gulf of Tonkin resolution  used by President Johnson to draw the United States into  Vietnam.

The Gulf of Tonkin incident is a notorious false flag incident, a  fact underscored by an exhaustive history of American  signals intelligence (SIGINT) in the Vietnam War that was declassified and released by the National Security Agency in  2008.

John Kerry Steals Wolfowitz’s Iraq Lines for Syria  War

Daniel McAdams Lew Rockwell  Blog September  5, 2013

Secretary of State John Kerry at the House Foreign Affairs  Committee Hearing on Syria war authorization Today:

“With respect to Arab countries offering to bear costs…the answer  is profoundly yes. They have. That offer is on the table.”

Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, March 23, 2003 on the  eve of the Iraq war, before the House Appropriations  Committee:

”The oil revenues of that country could bring between $50 and $100  billion over the course of the next two or three years. Now, there are a lot of  claims on that money, but … We are dealing with a country that can really  finance its own reconstruction and relatively soon.”

Wolfowitz’s “free” war ended up costing the US taxpayer more than  one trillion dollars. How much will Obama and Kerry and Rice and Power’s “free”  war cost us?

There are many more similarities. Both wars are based on lies and  falsified evidence. In the run up to both wars, Congress completely ignored  whether the basic assertions of the administration were true or false. That  debate did not happen. The debate was only on when and how to go in. How to  finesse the authorization for the use of force so as to not appear to give the  president too much blanket authority while at the same time giving him the  maximum blanket authority.

The same is the case today. With very few exceptions, the  “opposition” to the war authorization came from those who were irritated that it  did not go further, demanding that the president establish no fly zones and  boots on the ground.

Americans by a large majority do not at present want a war on  Syria. Probably a week or so more of Kerry’s “Assad is Hitler” propaganda will  peel off several percentage points in favor of US action. With the propaganda  tuned, they may even get close to a majority.

But as long as Hitler is on the menu, perhaps it is worthwhile to  revisit a moment of profound honesty from one of his deputies, Hermann Göring,  interviewed in a jail  cell at his Nuremberg trial:

Göring: Naturally,  the common people don’t want war. …But, after all, it is the leaders of the  country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the  people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a  Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.

Gilbert: There is  one difference. In a democracy, the people have some say in the matter through  their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can  declare wars.

Göring: Oh, that is  all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to  the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they  are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and  exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any  country.

Breaking: Russia Says Syria Chemical Weapons Made By  Rebels

Anthony  Gucciardi September 4,  2013

A new report from Russia lends evidence that the March 19 chemical  attack in Syria was in fact carried out by the Obama-backed Syria rebels,  highlighting the reality of the latest attacks.

In a new breaking report released by the  Russian Foreign Ministry just moments ago, it has now been announced that the  March 19 chemical weapons responsible for the attacks in Syria and blamed on  Assad’s government army are linked up to rebel-made weaponry. Specifically, the  findings state that the chemical weapon shells are very much different from the  standard Syrian army weaponry and extremely similar to those made by the  US-funded rebels who have been caught time  and time again burning villages full of innocents.

The report from Russia’s RT reads:

“Probes from Khan al-Assal show chemicals used in the March 19  attack did not belong to standard Syrian army ammunition, and that the shell  carrying the substance was similar to those made by a rebel fighter group, the  Russian Foreign Ministry stated.”

And perhaps more importantly, the report goes on to mention that  “the way is being paved for military action” through the blame on Assad for  launching the attacks despite evidence showing the contrary. In fact, Syrian  officials have gone on record in the past saying that evidence was submitted to  the UN showing how there was information pointing towards the rebels carrying  out the attacks. The relationship to the latest attacks is  undeniable.

Prominent Analysts Label Attacks ‘False Flag’

The latest report coincides with what major analysts have been  saying about the entire event as well as what I have been saying in reports  regarding the latest attacks. Initially pushing the concept into the media, it  was Ron Paul who went on air and labeled the attacks a false flag in a report that has now gone  international in a major way. Paul was then followed by Pat  Buchanan, who went on air saying that the attacks ‘reeked of a false  flag’.

Now, it seems extremely clear to those who are following what’s  going on that we were indeed correct in this analysis when considering this  news. Yet, despite this reality, Obama and his handlers continue to push the  nation into a hot war with Syria that could involve boots on the ground and the  ignition of heavy military action against Assad.

German Intelligence Claims Evidence Assad Responsible  for Chemical Attack

Syrian Activists Form ‘Human Shields’ Around Military  Installations

Adan Salazar Sept. 4, 2013

Will Obama take the ultimate step to embodying ‘war criminal’  status?

Syrian activists have taken to forming “human shields” around  military installations in the capital of Damascus in efforts to discourage the  Obama administration from authorizing “limited” military strikes on the Syrian  regime.

According to RT, a coalition of  activists have placed themselves around the predicted target of Mount Qasioun,  an installation northeast of the Syrian capital of Damascus home to “security  and military buildings” as well as Syrian regime armed forces.

‘Nobody Wants This Except the Military-Industrial  Complex’

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, is similarly “in,”  while Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, in  mum.

Syria: Conservative Icons Put “Anti-War” Left to  Shame

Paul Joseph  Watson September 4, 2013 

Drudge, Buchanan, Rand Paul & Justin Amash highlight hypocrisy  of Obama supporters

While ideologues of the so-called “anti-war” left have offered  milquetoast dissent or even supported Barack Obama’s planned attack on Syria,  conservative icons in both politics and media are leading the backlash against  another potentially disastrous foreign intervention.

It’s a phenomenon that many are attempting to understand – what  happened to the substantial and vehement army of anti-war leftists who opposed  George W. Bush in the run up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq? The vast majority of  them undoubtedly voted for Obama once if not twice, and are apparently placing  their slavish devotion to the President above the interests of the country by  refusing to speak out against an aggressive intervention that could spark a far  wider regional conflict.

It’s a sentiment encapsulated by Democratic Congresswoman Eleanor  Holmes Norton, who admitted that the only reason  she and other Democrats would vote for Obama’s resolution on Syria was out of  “loyalty” to the President.

While leftists have largely remained silent , media conservatives  like Matt Drudge and Pat Buchanan, along with political heavyweights like  Senator Rand Paul and Congressman Justin Amash have comprised the tip of the  spear in opposing the White House’s rush to war.

McCain Blames Boredom For Playing Poker At Senate War  Meeting

Alyssa Milano ‘Sex Tape’ Promotes Attack on  Syria

Paul Joseph  Watson September 5,  2013

PR stunt regurgitates Obama’s “red line”  propaganda

The PR stunt, designed to “inform” people about the situation in  Syria, merely regurgitates the official narrative about Assad being behind last  month’s chemical weapons attack which violated Barack Obama’s “red  line”.

It makes no mention of the other side of the debate, including the  UN’s acknowledgment that the FSA rebels used chemical weapons back in March or last week’s report by  Associated Press correspondent Dale Gavlak which contained interviews with  rebels who admitted being responsible for the chemical weapons incident in  Ghouta.

While the video, which originally featured on, will  by no means achieve the same viral success as Kony 2012, it is certainly  directed at a similar audience judging by its total lack of nuance or  intellectual sophistication.

Well hit me with a feather and I shall swoon.


Kerry says that Arab countries will pay the military bill (so now  America has a mercenary army) and take a look at Chuck Hagel when questioned  about the nature of the ‘opposition’ to Assad

There’s nothing to be concerned about – this man is only the US  Defense Secretary.

These mendacious idiots are taking you to war again America and the  ‘allies’ that he refuses to talk about are led by the very ‘Al-Qaeda’ terrorists  that the whole fake ‘war on terror’ was supposed to be  targeting.

Pelosi Uses Conversation With 5-Year-Old Grandson To  Push For Attack On  Syria

Talking of ludicrous politicians … Pelosi Uses Her 5-Year-Old  Grandson To Propagandize War With Syria

Can anyone work out what on earth she is going on about here? But  don’t worry, she’s only Minority Leader of the United States House of  Representatives and speaker from 2007 to 2011.

What Pelosi said about Bush doing in 2003 what her hero Obama is  proposing today – with her support:

‘The president led us into the Iraq war on the basis of unproven  assertions without evidence; he embraced a radical doctrine of pre-emptive war  unprecedented in our history; and he failed to build a true international  coalition.’

(A genuine quote.)

Obama, Hagel, Kerry, McCain, Pelosi, Graham, Boehner, etc., etc.  … can anyone tell me why America is in such a mess? I can’t work it  out.
