    President Obama is bombing the opposite side in Syria from the side he swore we needed to attack one year ago, and those pleased by this declare that he is “doing something.”

    U.S. polls suggest that the same people recognize that this something will make the U.S. more likely to be attacked and nonetheless favor this action. This is unthinking fear produced by slick beheading videos for audiences too distracted to notice that the Iraqi government, Saudi government and numerous other U.S. friends and allies behead. And are we to imagine that when Obama kills a 16 year old American and the 6 kids near him his head remains intact? Should we pretend that the people being killed by U.S. missiles right now aren’t losing their heads?

    This action is illegal under the UN Charter, Kellogg-Briand Pact, and U.S. Constitution. This action is immoral as it fuels violence that needs to be reduced. This action is knowingly, maddeningly counterproductive, guaranteed to build hostility to the United States, which is already so hated that ISIS openly advocates for a U.S. attack on it. This action by this White House is what ISIS wants and what weapons makers want. It is not what the people of Syria or Iraq or the world want. It further shreds the rule of law while dumping gasoline on a fire of U.S. creation.

    What’s needed is, contrary to what your television suggests, not to “do nothing” or love beheadings. What’s needed is an arms embargo. The U.S. ships 79% of the weapons shipped to the Middle East, not counting the weapons of the U.S. military. An arms embargo could be 79% successful with just one country participating, and others could certainly be brought to do so.

    Hmmm...interesting. In many, many posts here on BB, Poncho has advocated that the solution to the drug problem in the U.S. is to make drugs legal, thus curtailing the gangs and thugs from profiting from the black market trade and allow the U.S. government to collect taxes on the sales.

    But the solution to the problem of terrorism is to make weapons sales illegal, thus empowering gangs and thugs to profit from the black market trade and deny the U.S. government from collecting taxes on the sales.

    Clicked on it accidentally, saw the low hanging fruit, couldn't help myself. I'll go back to refraining from reading your crap.

    I didn't offer any solution, just an observation. But then, you are about as sharp as a bag of lint.

    Personal attacks noted.

    Don't worry folks this to shall pass.

    ITL figures if he can't win by evidence and reason (and he can't) he'll just make a few personal attacks and go back into hiding. Samo ITL. Some things never change. Poor tortured soul seems he's been living in the Orwellian state to long.

    Pentagon reassures the military-industrial complex

    Dick Cheney and the neocons will soon realize their dreams of forever war against unseen Islamic enemies.

    From DoD’s twitter feed Tuesday:

    Cheryl Pellerin @PellerinDoDNews

    Follow.@DeptofDefense official: Successful #syriaairstrikes only the beginning @DoDNews http://go.usa.gov/d4uQ @CENTCOM
    2:45 PM - 23 Sep 2014

    On Wednesday USA Today quoted Army Lt. Gen. William Mayville, director of operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who said forever war is a certainty.

    “I would think of it in terms of years,” Mayville said.

    Obama said as much on Tuesday. “This is not going to be something that is quick, and it is not something that is going to be easy,” he said.

    One might be reminded of George Orwell’s 1984 where the Inner Party conducted an unwinnable forever war.

    “We’ve always been at war with Eastasia,” the party claimed as it effortlessly changed enemies from “Eurasia” to “Eastasia” during Hate Week.

    We have our own rotating and ever mutating roster of enemies – al-Qaeda, ISIS, al-Nusra, and now the fearsome Khorasan – and they will serve the military industrial complex well.
