I love the smell of yellow cake in the morning…

An allstar cast of hawkish favorites, you know all the same folks that said we should invade Iraq, sent the President a very important letter. Basically, they want some more war.

Well, they want it, of course, but, American citizens don’t want it. According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll 60 percent of Americans surveyed say the United States should not intervene in Syria and only 9 percent say that the United States should act.

Hello! OMG! Has the American public woken up to the fact that being in perpetual war might not be a good thing? Hooray.

It seems there is some question as to who is exactly responsible for chemical weapon attacks on civilians, Assad or Al Kaida… or what…

The Syrian government accused rebels of using chemical weapons Saturday and warned the United States not to launch any military action against Damascus over an alleged chemical attack last week, saying such a move would set the Middle East ablaze.

The accusations by the regime of President Bashar Assad against opposition forces came as an international aid group said it has tallied 355 deaths from a purported chemical weapons attack on Wednesday in a suburb of the Syrian capital known as Ghouta

A suburb of Damscus? Isn’t that in Assad’s control? This all isn’t adding up.

Confused? Well, yep, you should be. I am. Let’s look at the board in the “Risk” game. Here is the dumbed down version..


Here is the real versionThe Complete idiot's chart Middle East

No, we shouldn’t intervene. It will make things even more horrifying.

What the United States should look into, and I suspect our “intelligence” already knows, who has these chemical weapons?

This is a really ugly poker game. This isn’t about oil. It is a recipe for another World War.

  1. I read somewhere that it was Assad’s brother that gave the order. For what that’s worth. Apparently the Arab League opposes intervention, and Russia and China will never allow it to get through the Security Council, so I suspect that this all a dog and pony show since we won’t act unilaterally.

    But I agree it is a terrible idea.

  2. BH: “Yellow cake” is the picture perfect comparison. They claim to have an intercept between Assad’s Defense Chief and the Chemical weapons facility, but even as they identify the so-called players they can’t release it. “Fool me twice, well I can’t be fooled again.” Don’t count on that.

  3. Fortunately, we have the peace candidate of the 2008 election cycle in the White House. And a Nobel Peace Prize winner as an extra added bonus!

    So, I’m sure cooler heads will prevail and, uh,….

    Actually, as we all know, just because any overwhelming number of the U.S. public wants to stay out of a war doesn’t mean squat. We left “democracy” and the idea that a little person’s vote counts as much as a 1%r’s vote way behind long, long ago.

    When members of the Tea Party in Congress, who call for a Congressional vote on deployment of force rather than a unilateral Executive decision, start sounding like the “Peace Party”, we are well and truly fracked.

  4. Looking at this rush to military actions out of the WH I figured I was having a nightmare and it as 2003 all over again….

    Heh, if I call the WH and ask to leave a message George Bush and Dick Cheney, will they take it?
