So what's next, do you think? Looks like our Warmonger-in-Chief and his puppet masters might be going ahead with strikes, against all evidence, world opinion, and the wishes of American citizens.

That Christmas ornament I posted a picture of really, really infuriates me. "peace on earth".... What hypocrisy ! War criminals.  :ranting3:

I sure hope the rest of world appreciates that most of us Americans have about as much say in our government as Ukrainian farmers did under the Bolsheviks.  :sadangel2:

WWIII, collapse of the dollar, suspension of the Constitution, the Black President with the Muslim-like name who aspires after Lincoln, assumes official dictatorial martial-state powers in an effort "save" the union, all hell breaks loose, Fukushima rains nuclear fallout on the only nation that ever dropped nuclear weapons on (Japanese) people, "dissident" Americans like WWII Japanese-Americans are rounded up and interred, people starve, turn to cannibalism?

Or maybe everybody in America embraces cannabis and chills the fuck out? Decommissions nukes, plants gardens? Disavows global empire? Disbands the standing military, consigns all gov/bank/corp elite to humanure maintenance or seppuku?  :icon_mrgreen:

I'm sort of like, maybe there are Illuminati, and maybe they are Luciferic in the worst possible way?

Now try not to get carried away with all this illuminati speculation.   :laugh:

eXTRA! eXTRA! rEAD ALL ABOUT IT!

From Rooters:

US Tomahawk missiles aimed at Damascus missed their target and landed on Washington, Wall Street and the Federal Reserve instead. Luckily, there were few casualties, as Wall Street and Federal Reserve usual suspects were all in the Hamptons fucking $5000 whores and swilling $60,000 bottles of Dom. Military spokesmen were at a loss to explain the derivation, but one expert said, off the record, that perhaps a recent solar flare had messed with the tomahawk tracking systems. Maybe. Obama is safe and being watched over by angels. Congress was luckily out of session, though no members have as yet been accounted for, as per usual. The MSM media is reporting that the missile strikes were a complete success, and Assad can no longer get an erection.

Stay tuned for further developments...

eXTRA! eXTRA! rEAD ALL ABOUT IT!

From Rooters:

In the aftermath of the obliteration of Wall Street, Washington Institutions of Governance, and the Federal Reserve, there has been much confusion as to who, or what, would fill the power vacuum.

(cue giant sucking sound) Billary Clintons were heard on NPR moments ago, soothing the nation. "It is a terrible day," the conjoined twins said, "for democracy and the light of the world that is America. Luckily, we're here to make everything better. We are announcing a new foundation, in conjunction with the Bushes, for the betterment of Obama (and then Jeb and then Chelsea[Conjoined with a Mannings]) as President of the World!!! We are calling it the ClintonsBushes Foundation for Global Governance Over Everything and Then Some. Bread and circuses for everybody. We are hereby, um, recommending everyone in America take ClintonsBushes as their surname, and dispense with the Constitutional pleasantries." A less then traumatized nation was heard to utter a collective yawn. Miley Cyrus immediately thereafter showed her cootie to Jimmy Fallon on network TeeVee, and all of America was otherwise google-eyed.

Stay tuned for further developments...

eXTRA! eXTRA! rEAD ALL ABOUT IT!

From Rooters:

Earlier today, in the confusion in the aftermath of the dust-ification of Wall Street, Washington Institutions of Governance and the Federal Reserve, an all-points bulletin was issued, calling all DHS, TSA, NSA, FBI, CIA and Local and State Law Enforcement, in the search for Larrys Summer, Roberts Rubins, Lances Blankfeins and Jamies Dimons.

"A quadruplet of leggy, exceptionally flamboyant transvestites reported them missing," said a Hamptons Police Department Spokesperson. "They apparently didn't show up for their appointment. Everybody else did, apparently."

Speculation abounded. Social media was alight, most of the afternoon, the devastation of the errant tomahawks forgotten, Syria seemingly not any longer newz.

"Lances is such a big boy," said one of the man-whores, dressed like a peach peacock dominatrix, to Caty Kurik moments ago. "He likes it so much, he's ever so very punctual."

"Jamies ummm, just so...I hope he's ok," said another, otherwise identifying "herself" as "Jamies's play toy."

The nation is mourning this evening. All four were found in the rubble of the New York Federal Reserve. "Hands on each other's cock," said a clearly angry police representative. "Funny thing was, we didn't find any gold."

Timothys Geitners could not be reached for comment.

An Epic Disaster In The Making: A Round-Up of Articles About Obama's Upcoming War On Syria
http://disquietreservations.blogspot.com/2013/08/an-epic-disaster-in-making-round-up-of.html

An Epic Disaster In The Making: A Round-Up of Articles About Obama's Upcoming War On Syria.

"Release of the long-awaited US government intelligence dossier on the alleged chemical attack in Syria on Aug. 21, had been moved and postponed until the media black-hole of a Friday afternoon before a big US holiday weekend.

Now we see why.

Here is the crux of the White House argument for war on Syria:

A chemical attack took place. Trust us. Someone (the Israelis) told us they tapped a call where two Syrian government officials talked about the attack in an incriminating way. Trust us. The Syrian government was moving troops around in a way that suggested they were about to launch a chemical attack. Trust us. More than 1,400 people were killed even though at most a couple of dozen were seen in the videos that purported to be of the attack. Never mind, trust us. We watched a lot of YouTube videos of people who seemed to be suffering from a chemical weapons attack. Trust us." - Daniel McAdams, "Obama's Syria Dossier: 'Trust Us'," Ron Paul Institute, August 30, 2013.

"Barack W. Bush. Joe Cheney. Here they come. Girded for a war that the British took one look at and bailed out on before it even began. Announcing that they are prepared to go it alone. Who said that unilateralism went away with George W. Bush?

Obama said acting unilaterally was a bad thing when he campaigned for office in 2008. That was then. Obama, who has followed in Bush's footsteps on national security surveillance measures, as the Washington Post's extensive revelations about the reach of government spy agencies show today, is about to go to war again." - Jacob Heilbrunn, "Barack W. Bush: Unilateral War In Syria," The National Interest, August 30, 2013.

"Two years ago, Obama declared that Assad “must go,” eviscerating prospects for a political settlement.  Obama further damaged diplomatic prospects with three UN Security Council resolutions effectively authorizing coercive regime change in Damascus, which Russia and China vetoed.  His Syria strategy rested on the surreal proposition that a staggeringly fractious “opposition,” much of which publicly aligns with al-Qa’ida and is not supported by anything close to a majority of Syrians, would unseat Assad, who (according to polls and other evidence) enjoys support from at least half of Syrian society.

Obama compounded all this with an equally foolish declaration that chemical weapons use was a U.S. “red line”—giving those looking for U.S. intervention motive to gas innocent civilians.  Now that such weapons have been used, Obama cannot entertain that oppositionists may be responsible, for this would undercut his Syria strategy.  His administration has presented no evidence that Assad’s forces used chemical weapons in Ghouta; when it alleged chemical weapons use at Khan al-Assal in March, it also offered no evidence of government responsibility.  By contrast, Russia publicly presented a detailed forensic analysis showing that neither the munitions used at Khan al-Assal nor the chemical agent in them had been industrially manufactured and that, “therefore, there is every reason to believe that it was the armed opposition fighters who used the chemical weapons.”  Washington rejected this—and, after trying to derail a UN investigation of more recent allegations about Ghouta, has preemptively dismissed whatever UN inspectors there now may conclude." - Flynt Leverett and Hillary Mann Leverett, "Syria and the Waning of American Hegemony," GoingToTehran, August 30, 2013.

"Essentially then, the United States is using social media, a system over which they have control, to justify their pre-fabricated war narrative.  Additionally, the idea that videos constitute a shred of evidence is laughable.  As any investigator can tell you, videos are easily manipulated and, even if they are untouched, they cannot be used to assess the culprit of a crime.  Videos merely show what is visible, not the underlying motives, means, and opportunity – all part of genuine investigation.
Finally, one must feel serious apprehension at the idea of journalist reports as being part of this pastiche called a “high confidence assessment,” for the simple reason that Western coverage of the conflict in Syria is mostly coming from journalists outside the country or those already sympathetic to the rebel cause.  Whether they are paid propagandists or simply convenient tools used as mouthpieces of the corporate media, their reports are highly suspect, and certainly should have no role in shaping war-making policy." - Eric Draitser, Debunking the "U.S. Government Assessment of the Syrian Government's Use of Chemical Weapons on August 21, 2013," Land Destroyer Report, August 30, 2013.

"No matter how “limited” the strike, bombing a foreign nation is a major act of war. In fact, after WWII the Nuremberg trial concluded that the Nazis’ “supreme international crime” was not genocide or holocaust, but waging aggressive war, since all other war crimes were spawned from this original sin. Of course, Obama’s aggressive war plans involve more than tossing a couple of missiles at some Syrian tanks. That is why he’s moved five Navy destroyers into the region.

It is also presumably why — as reported by the French daily Le Figaro — hundreds U.S. Special Forces and “trained militant fighters” entered Syria on August 17.   

It has widely been speculated that the real intention of attacking Syria is to prop up Obama’s ailing rebels, who have received massive U.S. support in the form of guns, training, and money, for —according to The New York Times — almost two years now, and possibly longer. It’s an undisputed fact that Islamic extremists militias are the most powerful fighting forces in the opposition to Assad; if he falls then they will be in power." - Shamus Cooke, "The Lie of “Limited” War Against Syria," Global Research, August 31, 2013.

I heard "Senator" Al (MF) Franken on Minnesota Public Radio today arguing that Obama has the unilateral right to bomb Syria, without Congress. He's also been on there lately arguing about the necessity of NSA total surveillance. Who needs "big fat idiot" fascist conservatives when you have liberal comics like that? - WHD

Utterly appalling. If I didn't know better I would think the Mossad had their hand up his ass.
