In 'Clear Violation of Domestic and International Law,' Trump Bombs Syria


#201

No problem, it’s an alternate lie.
;-})


#202

Yes; but, was the U.S.'s hegemonic aspirations previously set out in writing?


#203

According to sott.net today, this attack is similar to our responsurported chemical attack. Dancing in the streets? Not at all what the West is reporting. But more in line with what callmeskeptical said above.

I think the problem was most of us (pacifists) were not buying significant amounts from DOW or anyone else. We were too young to have much economic power.


#205

we have plenty of money for the military industrial complex but no money for universal healthcare, free college or a federal jobs program.

Here’s an idea: Why don’t we reject the whole entire principle of politicians having authority to forcibly substitute their own plans for how our money is to be spent, in place of our own?
Just an idea, idk. Seems to me, once you accept the notion that it’s ok for politicians to arbitrarily steal our money & spend it however they wish, then you’ve already conceded the principle, along with any right you had to bitch about it when they spend it on shit you disagree with. Just sayin.


#206

Sorry for typo.
similar to our response to a previous purported chemical attack.


#207

Nobody will want us.


#208

Here is a conspiracy theory for the century. The Russians called the claim that it was: “a chemical strike on civilians” a hoax. Now I don’t believe the Russians one strike of the cuckoo clock, but I don’t believe their sycophant, Trump, either. What if it was a hoax? Why didn’t they wait for the independent investigation before blowing up people and squandering million on military assets? OK so the Brits and the French were in but I still worry that it is all kabuki and that this could end up with all of us with our heads shoved down the crapper.


#209

Stop and Listen! Big orchestrated SCAM :^(
Reason that UK USA France bombed Syria–get the news off Israel killing the Palestinians.


#210

My healthcare is free compared to other people . I get it that we all pay taxes, most anyway. I also pay for a private policy so we can afford my wifes chronic pain medication, which is being raided by the CDC in real time to cover for the a-holes and fools that don’t know shit about using their illicit drugs.

#211

If I really get caught up in it “all”, I don’t sleep much and I’m just a regular guy. Wrapping my brain around the image of empty shoes gets harder by the day.


#212

Neocons and Zionists call themselves “conservatives”. So does every mass murderer, serial killer, violent criminal, bankster, torturer, theocrat, swindler, racist, xenophobic, homophobic, psychopathic, sociopathic, ignorant, anti-science, dictatorial, Republican, Blue Dog, MSM led idiot that has swallowed the oligarchy’s “liberals bad, conservatives good” propaganda.

Don’t Christofascists realize Jesus was a liberal?


#213

Great post


#214

We should all have the right to decent health care as citizens. Clean water, clean air, decent health care at a minimum. The VA is a good example of how to do this.

Do you know anything about Syria?

Kurdish PKK and YPG’s Hidden Notorious Crimes: Kidnapping, Murder, and Narcotics Trafficking

Within the past few years Kurds have went from almost total obscurity to front page news. What doesn’t get reported however is how these terrorist groups under the guise of being a revolutionary movement for Independence have carried out numerous atrocities including kidnappings and murder – not to mention their involvement in trafficking narcotics.

PYD Leader Warns of War with Arab Settlers in Kurdish Areas

The leader of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), Salih Muslim, has warned that the Kurds' future war would be with Arabs who have settled in the Kurdish areas with the help of the Syrian regime.

“One day those Arabs who have been brought to the Kurdish areas will have to be expelled,” said Muslim in an interview with Serek TV.

YPG hopes to ‘change the demographic map’ in Al-Hasakah

Kurdish People’s Protection Units [YPG] reportedly burned at least five Arab-majority villages in the rural heart of Al-Hasakah province earlier this week after winning control of them from the Islamic State [IS] just weeks before.

Assyrians, Armenians in Syria Protest Kurdish Confiscation of Property

Qamishli, Syria (AINA) -- Sixteen Assyrian and Armenian organizations have issued a statement protesting Kurdish expropriation of private property in the Hasaka province of Syria. The statement accuses the Democratic Union Party (PYD), the Syrian wing of the Turkish Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), of human rights violations, expropriation of private property, illegal military conscription and interference in church school curricula.

US: YPG still recruits child soldiers in Syria

In its annual report on human trafficking, The United States said on Tuesday that the PKK's Syrian branch the armed People's Protection Units (YPG) continues to recruit children.

The report stated that children, boys and girls, younger than 15-years-old are used as militants and sometimes forced to fight against the wishes of their families.

The Myth of the Kurdish YPG’s Moral Excellence
Now that the so-called moderates have been exposed as the very opposite, many Leftists cling to the hope that amid the Islamist opponents of Syria’s secular, Arab socialist, government, can be found votaries of the enlightenment values Damascus already embraces. Surely somewhere there exist armed anti-government secular Leftists to rally behind; for it appears that the goal is to find a reason, any reason, no matter how tenuous, to create a nimbus of moral excellence around some group that opposes with arms the government in Damascus; some group that can be made to appear to be non-sectarian, anti-imperialist, socialist, committed to the rights of women and minorities, and pro-Palestinian; in other words, a group just like Syria’s Ba’ath Arab Socialists, except not them.

Advocating for the extrajudicial murder of a sovereign leader who has majority support of his people is a new low for you.


#216

That wouldn’t be wise on anyone’s part –

as it sets a precedent for Trump’s bombing and getting away with it –

and opens the opportunity for him to do it again, likely at heavier cost of heavier damage –

and again getting away with it.

BY THE WAY, WE HAVE MOTHER’S DAY COMING WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY INTENDED
TO BE AN ANTI-WAR DAY … AND FATHER’S DAY SHOULD BE DEVOTED ALSO TO ANTI-
WAR DAY.

Both of these days should be set aside as days against violence – gun violence and US/CIA
violence all over the world.

THIS should be happening!!!

AND, imo, it should be based as our STUDENTS have very wisely set it in motion in our communities
where the actions begin to set in motion the practice of coming out into the streets – without having to go to Washington, DC. This should be nationwide.

Remember, at least 50% of the victims of these wars/bombings are civilians.

And, again, IMO … our government will have no qualms about encouraging general chaos of war here in the US. Civil War split the nation into two camps of hatred which continue to echo today – and profited Elites-fascists greatly giving them new power/wealth to control the nation.


#217

As fascism rises in a nation – it enlarges its own control over the population by creating wars.

And it becomes easier to stamp out all opposition to the government.

This is the road the US/CIA has long been on – and they will continue to follow that pattern –

i.e., CREATING MORE AND MORE WAR.


#218

a2 –

What actually happened at the end of WWII is a myth/lies.
By 1943 WWII was over for Hitler/Nazis and they were making deals with our Pentagon which allowed Hitler/Nazis to go free – with an abundance of money amassed from Elites here and all over the world.
Vatican assisted in moving Nazis and funding as it went in and as it came out again.
This has long been suspected and is being confirmed now. See: Grey Wolf/non-fiction.
See: “Hunting Hitler” See: “Hitler: Suicide or Survival” etc.

Churchill – representing the “colonial minded” – intervened to delay D-Day by a year – and seems involved in the death of FDR. At least as reported by Stalin to one of FDR’s sons. Many mixed reports about the death of FDR – very odd ones – but not likely it was as simple as the myth adopted by our press.

AND, US certainly did NOT “hold the leaders of Nazi Germany to justice.” See: John McCloy

Also, the terms for allowing Jews into Palestine (demanded by Nelson Rockefeller) were that there would be NO chasing down or hunting of Nazis all over the world if this permission was given.

Also note that despite many positive advances in human rights and trying to stop future wars of aggression, the United Nations was taken over by the US/CIA eventually and that control still exists preventing any justice in the world. One of the very first means of doing that was the very damaging and suspicious death of Dad Hammarskjold in a plane crash. UN is still asking that his death be reinvestigated. So the warning was given once again by corrupting influences who control our government that VIOLENCE will continue to be used in order to keep control in hands of fascists.

After the Vietnam War Congress passed the War Powers Act.
Actually, I think it was the George HW Bush administration which announced that the “Vietnam-Syndrome” was ended in their attack on Iraq - the FIRST Gulf War.

It is our own government which is the terrorist – and bringer of wars.
CIA immediately began creating coups and covert actions to undermine democracies as the intent of the US/CIA – See: OPERATION GLADIO – was to keep right wing governments in power all over the world …
beginning at the end of WWII with the nations over which US had influence and control at that time: Japan, Germany, France, Italy.

NOTICE also that the original Elite/fascist influence which recruited and funded Hitler/Nazis in Germany and began global war for benefit of Elites/fascists, saw to it that Japan and Germany became financial superpowers. France and Italy … not so much. Quite odd that the two nations which threatened the peace of the world were the most rewarded after the war.

From what I’ve read, there wasn’t much choice. Trump and Bolton wanted to do more damage; but, Mattis prevailed with getting everyone to agree to the lesser scenario. Otherwise, they’d risk Russia retaliating; and, possibly taking out a ship or two; and, then, we’d be on the cusp of WW3. For now, the U.S. has used this likely false flag incident as the excuse to remain in Syria indefinitely.

The problem now is that the insurgents/white helmets will be embolden to stage another false flag to get the U.S. to accelerate. So, I guess I’m skeptical the U.S. will not continue to try for regime change.

With regard to Russian sanction retaliations, I jumped the gun. The Duma will consider those possibilities this week.


#220

The choice was to STOP Trump/Bolton and the fascists they represents.

Mattis guaranteed that Trump was able to respond and get away with it –

and as I said … will guarantee that Trump can attack again … and get away with it.

UN is controlled by the US, as well.

This is fascism.
