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

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 […]

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

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 […]

Trump on Other Republicans: ‘They want to start World War III over Syria. Give me a break!’

Donald Trump blasts Republican foreign policy and suggests our Syria position will cause World War III. While this speech does display some of the flaws of Donald Trump (which he thinks of as his strengths) it also shows some insight into American policy and into what the voters want to hear. This video was posted at The Hill. Interestingly, the accompanying story gives the reader no idea that crowds were cheering him in Oklahoma City: “Trump: GOP rivals want to ‘start World War III over Read more […]

Petraeus Blames Russia for U.S.-Caused Instability in Syria

Everyone knows the United States is actively causing unrest in Syria, but Petraeus blames Russia and the media treats his claims as credible. David Petraeus was allegedly criticizing the U.S. “implicitly” but only for not following his own insane agenda. According to CNN, One of America’s top former generals compared the situation in Syria Tuesday to a historic nuclear disaster, implicitly criticizing the U.S. for allowing it to worsen, and accused Russia’s President of trying to re-establish Read more […]

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

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 […]

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

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 […]

Eighty Percent of Migrants Flooding Europe are not from Syria

Some are from Iraq but many migrants are coming for economic reasons rather than fleeing war. The Daily Mail reports, “Four out of five migrants are NOT from Syria: EU figures expose the ‘lie’ that the majority of refugees are fleeing war zone.” Only one in every five migrants claiming asylum in Europe is from Syria. The EU logged 213,000 arrivals in April, May and June but only 44,000 of them were fleeing the Syrian civil war. Campaigners and left-wing MPs have suggested the vast majority Read more […]

Fighting ISIS Is a Bridge to Nowhere: Over Fifty Trained Volunteers Reduced to Five

The U.S. method of training soldiers for fighting ISIS leaves us with only five men so far In addition to our other failures in fighting ISIS (while we pretended we were weakening them), here is a story of a boondoggle that sounds just like any other government spending program. Douglas Ernst writes at World Net Daily, President Obama just found out how many good anti-ISIS fighters $500 million buys: five, at most. Gen. Lloyd Austin, who leads the U.S. military’s Central Command, told the Read more […]

Mega-Arrogance: Barack Obama Warns Vladimir Putin against Arming Syria’s Government

When Barack Obama warns Vladimir Putin against arming Bashar al-Assad, does he realize how hypocritical he is being? When I read this story the shameless hypocrisy and arrogance left me breathless. I can’t decide if Barack Obama is being openly cynical, saying garbage that he knows everyone recognizes as garbage, or if he has convinced himself that he has any standing to warn anyone about arming anyone. How can anyone read this Associated Press headline and not laugh?—“ Obama warns Russia Read more […]

New Book Provides Further Evidence US made ISIS

The US made ISIS in order to destroy Syria’s secular dictatorship, without caring about the Christians or others they knew would be raped, tortured, and murdered. I’ve already posted about how the US made ISIS by funding terrorists. We have seen how officials try to evade obvious questions when they are posed by reporters (which they do all too seldom). But now there is a new book out which documents more of the actions involved in taking a declining group, Al Qaeda in Iraq, and nourishing Read more […]

Jeb Bush: “Let’s Help Free Syrian Army” What Could Go Wrong?

Isn’t the Free Syrian Army simply the U.S. supplies and weapons acquisition unit for ISIS? It blew my mind when I watched the foreign policy debate between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama in 2012 that Romney pretended we had natural allies in Syria that we could support to overthrow Bashar al-Assad who “had to go.” It was completely delusional thinking and it wasn’t any different from what Barack Obama was already doing. Back then, Mark Horne pointed out that people who beat their enemies Read more […]

Judge Napolitano: Hillary Armed Terrorists

Hillary Armed Terrorists and Enemies of the United States along with Barack Obama. We have covered this over and over again, but it needs to be said until it sticks. Ideally, we need to say it until people go to prison for life. Our government has been arming terrorists for years. And as part of that regime, Hillary armed terrorists. Judge Napolitano provides the latest confirmation in the Washington Times: “Hillary’s Secret War.” In the course of my work, I am often asked by colleagues Read more […]
