Is Barack Obama Threatening to Support Terrorists with More Weapons and Money?

obama putin 2 Didn’t we support terrorists in Afghanistan (or people who became terrorists) in order to create a “quagmire” for Russian troops? Here is CNN’s headline: “Obama: Russia heading for 'quagmire' in Syria.” When I read that headline I don’t see how any Russian could hear these words and not think about U.S. policy in Afghanistan. In other words, they sound like Barack Obama is warning Putin that he will support terrorists in Syria (or support more of them, or give them more support) Read more [...] Continue reading →

Russia Strikes in Syria, Tells U.S. to Get Out of Way

U.S. Democratic Senator John Kerry peeks from behind the curtain as he is introduced to address a town hall meeting at the University of South Carolina in Columbia January 30, 2004. Kerry, on a roll after winning the first two Democratic presidential contests, has opened big leads in Missouri and Arizona and is challenging for the top spot in South Carolina and Oklahoma, according to a Reuters/MSNBC/Zogby poll released on Friday. Pictures of the month January 2004 US ELECTION REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque PP04020009 Pictures of the Year 2004  KL/JDP - RTRBJQD Nothing says professionalism like having no clue what just happened on your own watch, especially when you're the American secretary of state. John Kerry was actually in the process of speaking with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov about coordinating Russian military movements in Syria with the U.S. airstrikes against ISIS, when the Russians sent a lackey to the U.S. embassy in Baghdad. The lackey's message? We've started bombing; one side, please. I would have liked to have seen Kerry's Read more [...] Continue reading →

Remember Back When the New York Times Favored Afghan Man-Boy Rape?

New York Times_Front Page While it is great that the Liberal paper is exposing it now, don’t forget that they excused man-boy rape less than a decade ago. It was great that a paper with wide readership reported on the man-boy rape that soldiers are punished for opposing—even if the wide readership is undeserved, and a sign of national intellectual bankruptcy that the paper still has such a wide readership. I refer, of course, to the New York Times and their story, “U.S. Soldiers Told to Ignore Sexual Abuse of Boys Read more [...] Continue reading →

Trained Moderates Turn over U.S. Arms, Vehicles to Al Qaeda in Syria

mccain Syrian terrorists We trained moderates to fight in Syria and they gave terrorists our weapons and trucks as soon as they entered the country. Here is another chapter in the story we have been reading for years, as reported this time in The Telegraph, “US-trained Division 30 rebels 'betrayed US and hand weapons over to al-Qaeda's affiliate in Syria'” Pentagon-trained rebels in Syria are reported to have betrayed their American backers and handed their weapons over to al-Qaeda in Syria immediately after re-entering Read more [...] Continue reading →

One Year Ago Today We Started Bombing Syria; ISIS Still Alive and Well

bomb syria What have we accomplished by bombing Syria to defeat ISIS? Mostly just stimulus for the munitions industry. A few days ago I posted about our attempts to train and arm soldiers to fight against ISIS. The results were expensive and useless. But we have also been pursuing another means of dealing with ISIS. A year ago today we began bombing Syria thinking that, if we blew up enough ISIS locations, we would hurt the group. The Charles Koch Institute website explains, The strikes were launched Read more [...] Continue reading →

Military is Culling Honorable Soldiers from Military and Empowering Child Rapists

just following orders Honorable soldiers who don’t want to arm and train child rapists in Afghanistan are harassed and persecuted in the United States military. I wrote recently about a Green Beret who was being shoved out of the military, seemingly because he shoved an Afghan police officer who had raped a boy, beaten the mother for telling on him, and laughed in the face of the soldier when confronted. I asked if this represented a trend among Green Berets. It seems it is a trend in the entire U.S. military Read more [...] Continue reading →

Do Republican Voters Want More War?

Ben Carson The Media’s favorite candidates who want more war are not doing well in the polls, but outsiders who are far less militaristic are leading. Justin Raimondo has written in defense of the American Right, but the editor of is not really a conservative politically or ethically. Still, his analysis of the Republican debate on CNN presents interesting evidence of what the voters care about. He writes, Both Trump and Carson – the two frontrunners, mind you – are straying from neoconservative Read more [...] Continue reading →

Report: Drones Have Killed More Yemen Civilians than Al Qaeda

Drones_02 Barack Obama’s drones are arguably an instrument of terrorism. Since the report is from the United Nations I have to admit I would like confirmation. Still, it is important news that needs to be investigated. Samuel Oakford writes for Vice News, “The UN Says US Drone Strikes in Yemen Have Killed More Civilians Than al Qaeda.” At first I thought the headline meant deaths worldwide, but that isn’t possible. It is referring to deaths in Yemen. American drone strikes may have killed as Read more [...] Continue reading →

America, These Are Your Allies? Saudi Arabia Crucifixion for a Man Arrested as a Teen

Obama Saudi bow While we hear of Saudi Arabia crucifixion, Saudi involvement in 9-11 is censored because our government propagandizes for them. I don’t necessarily object to capital punishment for armed treason on principle. But crucifixion is barbaric and we support and aid the Saudi ruling dynasty all the time! So, yes, I firmly believe this headline at the Middle East Monitor is our business: “Saudi to crucify man arrested when he was 17.” Saudi Arabia has dismissed the final appeal of a juvenile Read more [...] Continue reading →

Dick Cheney Tries to Revise History regarding Iraq

iraq iran Contrary to Dick Cheney, invading Iraq took a stable country under a toothless dictator, and transformed it to a haven for terrorists. According to Bonnie Kristian at Rare.US, Dick Cheney is going on the news shows claiming that it was good we invaded Iraq: “No, Dick Cheney, you weren’t right about Iraq.” Naturally, this is coming up because Cheney is beating the war drums for Iran. So the question arises, why should we trust him about Iran when he was so wrong on Iraq? Cheney says Read more [...] Continue reading →

Army Lets Go Green Beret Who Confronts Child Abuser

green beret A Green Beret is being involuntarily discharged because he shoved an Afghan police he was training when he found he was a child-rapist and woman-beater. How would you react if you found that a man you were training for an important job in government used his authority to rape a boy and then beat up the mother when she reported him? How would you respond if you confronted him and he laughed that you would even care about such a small thing? Let me change focus slightly and ask the question a Read more [...] Continue reading →

Making the War on ISIS Look Good

pentagon The military’s Central Command has been writing reports on the war on ISIS that include positive conclusions that aren’t justified by the information. Jason Ditz reports for, “Centcom Skewed ISIS War Intel To Be More Upbeat.” The perennial positivity of all public Pentagon assessments on the war against ISIS, despite major, glaring losses on the ground, has been a matter of no small controversy for awhile, and has also successfully kept the elected officials who are on the Read more [...] Continue reading →
