Russia Has Equipped Syria With Their Most Advanced Anti-Ship Missiles

Russia has sold Syria highly advanced rocket launchers, anti-aircraft missiles and anti-ship missiles.  In fact, the P-800 Yakhont anti-ship missiles that Russia has equipped Syria with are the most advanced anti-ship missiles that Russia has.  When the United States strikes Syria, they might be quite surprised at how hard Syria can hit back.  The Syrian … Read more »

Who Benefits From A War Between The United States And Syria?

Someone wants to get the United States into a war with Syria very, very badly.  Cui bono is an old Latin phrase that is still commonly used, and it roughly means “to whose benefit?”  The key to figuring out who is really behind the push for war is to look at who will benefit from … Read more »

Is The United States Going To Go To War With Syria Over A Natural Gas Pipeline?

Why has the little nation of Qatar spent 3 billion dollars to support the rebels in Syria?  Could it be because Qatar is the largest exporter of liquid natural gas in the world and Assad won’t let them build a natural gas pipeline through Syria?  Of course.  Qatar wants to install a puppet regime in … Read more »

The American War Brief Is Extremely Weak The White House released a 4-page document setting forth its case for use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government. But as shown below, the case is extremely weak (government’s claim in quotes, followed by rebuttal evidence). “A preliminary U.S. government assessment determined that 1,429 people were killed in … Read more »

Congress Is Now Irrelevant

http://www.moviespad.com/photos/leon-panetta-images-d6613.jpg

Ok, so I’ll admit, the title is a bit misleading. Technically, Congress has been irrelevant for quite some time. 535 little busy bodies out to line their own pockets and those of their corporate buddies. Ok, so not all of them are evil.

On the 7th of March, testifying before a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Martin Dempsey and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta both stated that President Obama needed only an international legal basis to go to war, and Congress would be an afterthought.

Wait, what?

Yea, that’s right. In complete defiance of Article I, section 8 of the Constitution which provides that only Congress may declare war, this administration says it doesn’t need congress.

After 9/11, Congress by and large ceded power to the Executive branch to execute a loosely defined “war on terror.” Essentially, they marginalized themselves. And Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) had the nerve to act surprised when the Administration asserts its emperor-like powers.

Iran: Nuke or no Nuke?

http://media.philly.com/images/600*450/20120220_inq_lede20.a.JPG

http://media.philly.com/images/600*450/20120220_inq_lede20.a.JPGIran. It seems to be on the lips of every journo lately. So, are they building a nuke or aren’t they?

The media is doing an all-out propaganda blitz it seems. Every chance they get, they have some “expert” talking about how Iran is supposedly in a fervent rush to build a nuclear weapon.

Never mind that Iran is a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Never mind that Iran has stated they are not pursuing a nuclear weapon. Never mind that US intelligence agencies state that there is no evidence to support that Iran is building a nuclear weapon. Forget all of that, facts are too inconvenient. Iran is building nuclear weapons because they want to “wipe Israel off the map” (I’ll leave it as an exercise for the reader to determine how accurate that quote is – Google is your friend). Forget that Israel has somewhere between 75 and 400 nuclear weapons themselves (they will not let inspectors in… yet somehow we’re not discussing attacking them). Israel is NOT a signer of the NPT.
