    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

White House Hints At Use Of "Military Force" In Syria

Tyler Durden's picture




 

And it was shaping up like your typical boring, noonish "gold-smackdown-so-JPM-can-refill-its-vault" Friday. Trust the White House to come out, guns blazing, false flags waving, and make those selling hard assets into the weekend think twice:

  • US PURSUING "DEFINITIVE" EVIDENCE ON SYRIAN CHEMICAL WEAPONS
  • WHITE HOUSE SAYS OPTIONS FOR DEALING WITH SYRIA USE OF CHEMICAL WEAPONS INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT EXCLUSIVE TO, MILITARY FORCE

Well, you know what they say: seek and ye shall find. Just ask Bush.

As for what the White House failed to mention is that the other options are, well, military force.

The Russians have a naval facility in Tartus, Syria. Mostly for resupply and maintenance. It's the only Mediterranean facility they control. Wouldn't Putin have something to say here. This is geo-political chess and nothing more. Our administration hasn't the moral compass to be concerned about chemical weapons usage.

You're thinking too much. I bet Syria has a bunch of those "mobile chemical weapons labs" like Colin Powell told us about with Iraq. And there's probably top secret video evidence that we'll never see, like with the bombing in Boston. We'll just have to take the government's word for it.

Above all, this is not a time for asking questions. This is a time for Chinese-made flag pins, "U-S-A!" chants, and blind obedience to authority.

All un-willing, other-wise thinking, own-people-loving, somewhat sane, kind of rational world leaders will toe the line or be displaced.

The pattern is clear. If they had their way, they would have an Idi amin or papa doc running every nation-state.

 

No shame now even, neither fear of reprisals. Comatose public everywhere, bleats usa usa or whatever....

Take it easy. Zionists and their American lackeys can only fight cowards (Saddam, Qaddafi, etc.,).  In Syria it might become very serious. Remember neither Saddam, Qaddafi, nor Serbia fought back attacking American bases in the region or EU capitals. Do you expect Iran will behave the same? One thing more, a new NATO instigated civil war is just started in Iraq.

Remember N. Korea telling to Obama and the rest: fuck off or else? You know the rest of the story.

i agree with you.  collapse for the American people was in the plans all along.   just like building seven, when the parasites are done, they implode the building...  hide evidence, and the case of the American people, eliminate them as a future military threat against the new dark power rising in the ME.

It's not war, it's "kinetic military action." It's the same kind of Newspeak that makes it so Bernanke isn't monetizing the debt.

Another step to Iran.

The boston bombing was allowed to move forward by CIA , who got info from the Chechens previously.  The bombing was a warning to Obama to fall in line. If not there will be more small scale bombing and his presidency would be a disaster. Of course they can't let Obama go the way of JFK for fear of sparking riots.

sure enough just days after the bombing, there is evidence of chemical weapons use from Syria. Take down Syria, wait for Republican president to take down Iran in 2016.

 

How does this hypothesis sound?

They WANT the riots to happen so DHS can use up all that "target practice" JHP ammo.

I agree that they want riots, but the ammo would never be used on the people who would riot if Obama got whacked. The ammo is for "domestic enemies," not the sheep who worship the government.

Republican predident in 2016?
No matter how bad this guy is, may be, perceived, is or is not the Anti-Christ, a born again Muslim, non-citizen, false SS #, etc., etc., conspiracy theory shit real or not... none of that makes a true difference.

The simple fact is that no matter reality or perception, the Republican party in the form of the Republican party that had its chance with Ron Paul, fucking blew it, disintegrated the last residue of hope for a broader appeal, has absolutely no fucking chance other than from the Neo-Cons who are A-OK with anything as long as its white Anglo-Saxon, straight, married, Protestant, male, etc.

There is no Republican Party Base past the Neo-Cons except for those who cannot stand the O&Mooch Show.

Ironically, those blind, CNN watching, God fearing Republicans are unwittingly contributing to the downfall of the country they claim to love so dearly.  Democrats and Republicans is nothing more than a ploy to distract your attention away from the true enemy.

I'm in the same quandry.  The RNC is as criminal as the DNC.  The scales fell from my eyes when I watched their takedown of Ron Paul in the 2012 convention.  Changing the rules, stealing his delegates, and then just shutting down the opposition was disgusting.  Watching Maddow and Jon Stewart point out the MSM treating RP like the 13th floor of a building was the true revelation.  The fix was in.  There is no real choice.  It's all bullshit.  The Republic died long ago.
