Obama's Syrian 'Moderates' Sign Non-Aggression Pact with ISIS

In his address to the nation outlining his strategy to defeat ISIS last week, President Obama made three important points regarding Syria:

1) He would not hesitate to bomb ISIS on Syrian territory even without permission from Syria, a UN resolution, or Conressional authorization.

2) He would not coordinate his attacks on Syrian territory with the Syrian government because, as the State Department claimed, that government has no legitimacy.

One Party Interventionist State — Ron Paul With Charles Goyette

The two US political parties are united in their dedication to foreign interventionism, Ron Paul told Charles Goyette in their weekly podcast. 

Where did all the weapons come from that ISIS is using to wreak havoc in parts of Iraq and Syria? From the US! That is why the first order of bombing business was for US weapons to destroy other US weapons that were in the hands of ISIS.

Ron Paul and Charles Goyette: Syria and Iraq the Fruits of Interventionism

It was only weeks ago that President Obama requested an extra $500 million dollars for Syrian rebels. Now we are told that the US must start bombing some of those rebels in Syria. The elective Bush war in Iraq for WMDs that never were is a good case history in the folly of U.S. interventionism. But the rise of ISIS is an even more compact representation of interventionism’s contradictions and failures.

Did 'Non-Interventionists' Drink the 'Bomb Iraq' Kool-Aid? -- Daniel McAdams on Tom Woods Show

Why are so many of those who call themselves "non-interventionist" suddenly jumping on the "bomb Iraq" bandwagon with the latest dose of US government propaganda about the critical need to "save the Kurds"? Do people really believe the US government is telling the truth this time and, more importantly, that bombs will solve the problem? 

How strange that humanitarian catastrophes of a much larger scale are taking place currently in Syria, Ukraine, Gaza, and elsewhere and the US government is totally silent or even hostile to those who seek to help! Not to mention the half-million Christians already cleansed from Iraq under US occupation. Might it have something to do with oilIsraelNeocons striking back? Yes, yes, and yes!

Foiled in Crimea, Is Obama Eyeing Syria Strike?

There is danger in making dramatic but idle threats. President Obama and his administration have been given to extremely muscular rhetoric to warn adversaries away from certain actions only to back down when their warnings are not heeded.

The neocons pounce on such unwise habits, attempting to trap the administration by its own rhetoric into fulfilling its wildest threats. It is a lose-lose with the administration but for some reason they keep it up.

Why Does Ukraine Seem So Much Like Syria?

In Ukraine, US-backed rebels seize weapons from a military depot and begin firing on police -- killing at least ten. The rebel groups occupy and torch government buildings, trade union headquarters, the central post office, and political party headquarters. They occupy local government facilities in other cities and physically attack local authorities. Their goal is to overthrow the elected government.

Reports of rebel reinforcements arriving, with "bulky backpacks near the scene of the latest protests," are suspiciously reminiscent of the "Internet in a Suitcase" project funded by the US government to provide tools for "activists" in regime-change candidate countries. The US has similarly trained and equipped the Syrian rebels.

US-backed rebels are photographed all over Ukraine with weapons, sometimes photographed shooting at police. In Syria, the US covertly provided the weapons and approved Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and other "friends of Syria" to provide even more. A Russian official has accused the US of arming the Ukrainian opposition.

US/UN Fears Assad Win in Free Syrian Election?

Every now and then we have a chance to peek through a tiny window to see how "diplomacy" is done behind closed doors. Last week the leaked conversation between US diplomats plotting the overthrow of Ukraine's government was one such dramatic moment.

Another came yesterday, in an interview with Iran's Ambassador to Lebanon, Ghazanfar Roknabadi, which appeared in the respected Lebanese Daily Star newspaper. In a sweeping interview, the Ambassador discussed the recent bombing of the Iranian embassy in Beirut and the regional threat of the growing number of jihadist groups in Syria.

US Aid Arrives in Syria?

As Brown Noses points out on Twitter, it appears as if US aid has arrived to Syria, courtesy of USAID. Isn't it nice to see that the money extorted from Americans and sent to "moderates" in Syria is being put to use building shelters for al-Qaeda and their US-supplied anti-tank rockets
