Ashton Carter, in an interview with CNN, rejected calls for sending U.S. ground troops into Iraq to fight Islamic State militants. He also said U.S.-led airstrikes have been effective.
ISIS kills 400, mostly women & children, in Palmyra – Syrian state TV while Iran holds military drills to counter regional ‘aggression’ as the fighting heats up further. NATO created this mess and NATO feeds this mess and then our politicians wring their hands and claim they had no idea this would happen after illegally invading Iraq and murdering the dictator there who gave significant human and civil and religious rights to the population of Iraq. Now, it is a funeral pyre for Modern Thought. Outright Medieval, in fact.
Arab Air Strikes Hit Military Bases in Yemen as the war expands into Saudi Arabia, itself as ISIS claims ownership of bombing a Shi’ite mosque inside Saudi Arabia. Netanyahu Thanks US for Blocking Push for Nuke Ban because the Jews will need this for Armageddon.
1000s form human chain outside Japan parliament over US military base which is news hidden from Americans who think that Abe and his gang love us. Abe’s wife went to the WWII war criminal shrine to thank them for invading Asia and attacking Pearl Harbor and the US didn’t protest this at all because our rulers are all children who don’t know much WWII history, it seems which is why they push for war with Russia, too.
Alexander Cockburn: Whatever happened to the Anti-War Movement?. New Left Review 46, July-August 2007. Back then, the old warhorses of the antiwar movement noticed that the movement was pretty much dead. It remains very dead today. Last February 2015, another leftist noticed this, too: The slow, painful death of America’s antiwar movement – Salon.com
* With last June’s collapse of the American-trained and -armed Iraqi army and recent revelations about its 50,000 “ghost soldiers” in mind, here’s Stone on the Laotian army in January 1961: “It is the highest paid army in Asia and variously estimated (the canny Laotians have never let us know the exact numbers, perhaps lest we check on how much the military payroll is diverted into the pockets of a few leaders) at from 23,000 to 30,000. Yet it has never been able to stand up against handfuls of guerrillas and even a few determined battalions like those mustered by Captain Kong Le.”
Just six months earlier we had one of the dumbest demonstrations on earth, the ‘Largest-ever’ climate-change march rolls through NYC howling for more cold weather which we got in spades. The global warming movement has killed the antiwar movement. This suicidal movement that will eventually kill liberalism totally especially if we are going into another Maunder Minimum.
I began attacking liberals for this stupid fixation on preventing warm weather just recently. Before, I simply pointed out the obvious, that the planet is cooling. Massing huge amounts of data to show this extraordinary information, I naively thought that sane people would see the future clearer and take measures to protect themselves.
Instead, due to huge pushing on the part of our government and the Bilderberg gang’s media, we have raging insanity when it comes to simple weather with NASA and NOAA now claiming no one can predict the weather which is criminal. Weather prediction is laughably easy: you look at sun spot activity! Duh! This has been known for many years now. Since my grandpa’s youth when he made his living counting sun spots and making weather predictions.
The utter defeat of NATO in Iraq still is ignored just like the US was utterly defeated in Southeast Asia 50 years ago. We learned nothing from that disaster and are learning nothing from the present disaster. But life is a harsh teacher and the War on Terror is far from over, it is consuming our culture internally as well as externally and all this is pathetic when we think about all those warriors who fought for America over the last 200 years, spinning in their graves, enraged at the stupidity going on today.
