“The War Gods Are Strong In America”

We don’t often read the far left website Mother Jones, but every so often they post something which reminds us of the occasional ideological symmetry between individuals residing at opposite ends of the American political spectrum.

Kevin Drum, one of the website’s political bloggers, posted an item this week highlighting a new Pew Center poll which shows the total lack of support for American military involvement in Syria. According to the poll only 20 percent of Americans support U.S. President Barack Obama’s decision to send arms to Syrian rebels – while a whopping 70 percent oppose it.

This opposition knows no party lines, either, as 71 percent of “Republicans,” 66 percent of Democrats and 74 percent of independents oppose arming the rebels.

“Broad majorities continue to oppose the U.S. and its allies sending arms and military supplies to anti-government groups in Syria,” the Pew pollsters noted. “Last Thursday’s announcement that the U.S. would aid the rebels has not increased public support for action, and majorities of all partisan groups are opposed.”

Why, then, is Obama – backed by warmongering U.S. Senators like John McCain (RINO-Arizona) and Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.) – choosing to arm the rebels anyway? And why is he contemplating even more aggressive measures (like a U.S.-enforced no-fly zone)? And why is Graham calling on Obama to go one step further by putting “boots on the ground” in this troubled land?

“It’s a sign of the strength of the Beltway consensus in favor of intervention,” Drum writes, adding “the war gods are strong in America.”

Yes they are …

When it comes to costly and totally unnecessary foreign interventions with no compelling national interest, no clear strategic objectives and no exit strategy, Graham and McCain are always going to be on board. They can’t help it – they are whores for the nation’s military industrial complex. Obama? At this point we think he’s trying to do anything he can to deflect attention from the rash of scandals facing his administration on the homefront.

War is a very safe bet for politicians. Not war is a loser, particularly in SC.

We need someone to run against Graham in next year’s Republican primary, someone who actually cares about this state, and the country as a whole. Although I’m incorruptible, I’m too poor to mount a campaign.
Better yet, maybe the Constitution Party (or some other non-Liberal-Scum third party) can nominate someone acceptable.

Betty lost me long before that. McCain has never been the sharpest knife in the drawer. Graham is actually pretty smart….he just plays for the wrong team. Political philosophy, people!!

Obama was raised a Muslim* and now identifies as whatever Christian denomination the Right Reverend Wright preaches for. (Yeah…I’m too lazy to Google it.)

Nikki Haley is a Methodist.

Beldar Conehead is from France.

* For the record, I don’t think Obama is a “closet Muslim”, anymore than Haley is a “closet Sikh”. Both probably fall somewhere in the Deist/Humanist/agnostic/atheist spectrum. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Everything in the mid east (and beyond) has to be considered first according to the 1400 year old Sunni-Shia schism. The U.S. is now firmly choosing the Sunni side (because the governments of Jordan and Saudi and a few oil supplying shiekdoms are our reliable lapdog friends at the moment, even though most of their people hate us). You may remember the Sunni’s effective work on 9/11, al qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, etc. But we like Iran, Hizballah and Assad less this year. I say let them fight amongst themselves as long as they want and try to re-establish the caliphate on their own terms. It is for the people there to maybe some day look to secularism when they get fed up. Meddling and applying a western style framework before that point is incredibly naive. Have we learned nothing the past 20 years?

Amazing photo by the way.

Remember when (potus) was caught telling Putin that after his reelection he would “have more flexibility” – about what? Right now he is being hammered to distraction, which is keeping him away from the secret agenda his handlers are pushing him (as the front) to get done.

Would they tell everyone before the new plant’s property was purchased…?? …before the new plant opened up..?? ..after the new plant produced the first auto……?? ….or after the company spun off a splinter IPO for a new model..??

We wonder what advertisers would PAY to steer Wil or Nancy or Amy to not tell the UAW workers one stinkin’ thing that would benefit their PENSIONS at all..??

Well…..at least Drudge tells its readers and advertisers just how many site visits they have per day, month and year…
