Dumbest. War. Ever.

AMERICA’S BONEHEADED SYRIAN INTERVENTION  Where to start with this whole Syria debacle … Well, let’s go back a couple years when fiscally liberally warmongers like U.S. Senator John McCain and Lindsey Graham were desperate to invade the country with American troops (because that strategy has been so successful). How desperate?…


Where to start with this whole Syria debacle …

Well, let’s go back a couple years when fiscally liberally warmongers like U.S. Senator John McCain and Lindsey Graham were desperate to invade the country with American troops (because that strategy has been so successful).

How desperate?  Um … yeah.  This desperate.

Thankfully, there was no invasion … but Graham and McCain were successful in supporting a bunch of radical Islamic terror organizations.  And pumping in tons of U.S. weapons.

And not surprisingly, it didn’t take long for things to escalate further …

America’s goal in Syria?  To take out president Bashar al-Assad, who is a major thorn in the side of our “partners in peace” down in Saudi Arabia.  In fact, it is widely believed (if not reported by the U.S. press) that Saudi Arabia was really responsible for at least some of the chemical weapons attacks in Syria that have been pinned on the Assad regime.

Anyway …

America has repeatedly stated that it has been attacking the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (its latest manufactured enemy) in this conflict.  But is that really what our planes and “advisors” have been up to?

Now that Russia has gotten involved in the Syrian War, it is becoming abundantly clear that the administration of Barack Obama – which loves to use ISIS for fear-mongering here at home – isn’t exactly going all-out against “the enemy.”

In fact the Russians are waging an aggressive air campaign against ISIS, targeting dozens of installations housing the terrorist network’s military infrastructure.

Wait … isn’t this the stuff American planes are supposed to be hitting?

“The Obama administration claims that it has been bombing ISIS positions in Syria for over a year.  So why in the world do these targets still exist?” commentator Michael Snyder wrote this week. “Was the U.S. military incapable of finding these installations? That doesn’t seem likely. So why weren’t they destroyed long ago? Did the Obama administration not want them destroyed for some reason?

Hmmmm …

Naturally, America doesn’t care if Russia takes out its “enemy” ISIS … right?

Um, wrong.

Earlier this week U.S. military cargo planes dropped a whopping fifty tons of ammunition to “moderate rebel” groups in Syria.

“All pallets (were) successfully recovered by friendly forces,” a U.S. official told CNN.


“This is essentially the equivalent of poking the Russians directly in the eyes,” Snyder wrote.  “Much of this ammunition will end up in the hands of those that the Russians are attempting to bomb into oblivion, and so to Russia it appears that we are attempting to make their job much harder.  And of course the truth is that there aren’t really any “moderate rebels” in Syria at all.  Nearly all of the groups that are fighting are made up primarily of radical jihadists and/or hired mercenaries.”

Indeed …

So … what exactly is our government doing?

Good question.  Because it sure looks to us as though our tax dollars are arming radical Islamic forces – likely including ISIS fighters – who will in turn wage a proxy war against the Russians.

The most warfare with the least results produces maximum profits whether you are a R or a D. Dwight David “Ike” Eisenhower was the last President with a shred of honesty about this topic. I won an essay debate with a piece titled “War is good for business” back in school. It takes very little effort in research to see why there is no peace on the horizon anytime soon.

TARevolution October 15, 2015 at 11:16 am

Liberals will Always vilify the soldiers. But EVIL, Backward and Hateful people, who murder the innocent, are the cause for war. It’s not the love of money. It’s usually a Godless ideology that forces good people to fight the immoral.

You won the essay contest because liberals were judging it. They are always too immature, too lazy and too coward to stand up to danger and injustice and barbarian dictators (or they are just like the evil.)

You – like FITS- are simply a cliche that is easy to sell to childlike minds, who have no idea of what a world with the courageous, and moral, would be like.

CorruptionInColumbia October 15, 2015 at 11:22 am

Nobody vilified the soldiers, dumbass. They are being used to fight pointless wars, perhaps to start WWIII, which might bring into question the sanity of anyone choosing to enlist under current conditions, where a seeing person should know it is not about fighting for your country so much as it is about doing the bidding of politicos and business people who are not fit for those soldiers to wipe their butts on.

TARevolution October 15, 2015 at 11:25 am

STFU. Most Soldiers would rip your fucking head off, and shit down your windpipe. You speak like Obama and FITS. They HATE you. And you are dangerous.

Ignorance like your is what leads to all types of rules that get soldiers killed or jailed, while the animals we fight play by no rules.

Our guys, the True Americans, want to fight and win…because there are tyrants, dictators and Idiots like you, supporting murder and Dominance of free people.

You have no idea what you’re talking about.

I never said our guys didn’t “want” to win. Their “wants” and the reality of the situation they are in however, are two entirely different things. I bitched back when Bush was running things that our troops in a war zone, frequently had stricter ROE’s thsn a street cop at home does. It has only gotten worse with Obama, but that doesn’t change the fact that Bush had the deck stacked against them from Day 1.

That is your problem. You and flip don’t understand the difference between the ‘soldiers’ and the largely civilian ‘powers that be’ that control their mission. The former are the the dedicated defenders of our nation that are fully worth of our respect. The latter are most often self-aggrandizing chicken hawks that use the soldiers as pawns to enrich themselves.

More commentary from the lunatic fringe by Michael Snyder. “So why in the world do these targets still exist?” Because new ones spring up and old ones are relocated. We’re unwilling to kill everybody, leave that to Assad. Michael Snyder has zero credibility on military matters. Not that he has any on economic issues either.

“Earlier this week U.S. military cargo planes dropped a whopping fifty tons of ammunition to “moderate rebel” groups in Syria.”

Not only that, but many of those “moderate rebel” groups are actually Al Qaeda or affiliated….lol….pure stupidity.

The US is the laughing stock of of the middle east, rightfully so. Let’s hear more whining about “isolationism” from both sides of the aisle as the charade continues so that we can laugh at our government instead of cry that they are now supporting the network behind 9/11.

We seem hell bent and determined to start WWIII with Russia over a bunch of savages who have been murdering and slaughtering each other for centuries.

Russia is actually taking the bull by the horns and stomping the roaches that we have been purporting to not like, while simultaneously feeding and growing more of them. Good men and women in our military are being used as pawns by scumbag politicians like McCain and Graham, to enrich the MIC. One could only hope these jerks one day stand trial for treason, for the mess they are getting our country in to.

Rocky Verdad October 15, 2015 at 2:28 pm

Russia’s accomplished nothing. They’ve already lost one fighter jet and three helicopters. We had nearly the entire US Army in Vietnam when it was coming unglued and guess what happened. I say we go in over a couple of weeks, take out about 400 of Assad’s tanks, drop another 100 tons of ammo, and walk away. When making a stew – you leave the oven door closed.

The U.S. won the war in Iraq, and it was a win worth EVERY penny. If we could have maintained an ally there, it would have saved MILLIONS of lives, and kept trade honest and fair.

The fact that Obama Stupidly gave back all we achieved to his ISIS Friends proves the success Bush obtained. Obama showed WHAT-NOT to do.

Bullshit, all we “won” was the privilege of sending more troops there to die, be maimed, and psychologically damaged, plus sending more good money to be poured down a dry hole. It wouldn’t have mattered if we pulled out now or seventy-five years from now, chaos and the current situation would have been the result.

flip October 15, 2015 at 11:42 am

Obama gave the middle east to ISIS and Al Queda and tried giving Afghanistan away to the terrorists-until things became so obvious to the military leadership in this country,in my opinion (military was not going to let us lose those bases).Things unraveled more quickly than Obama anticipated( he was hoping to be out of office when the Taliban took back over) and to cover his treasonous ass he has to keep some troops in Afghanistan.

We’ve spent the last 12 years trying to get OUT of a quagmire. The best way to keep Putin from “rearing his head” against us is for Russia to get bogged down in Afganistan II. I feel like Obama is thrilled Russia is doing what it’s doing and we’re just going to feed the flames to keep them involved there for as long as possible. It’s a win/win. They kill some ISIS, they piss off the muslim extremists, they have the embarrassing headlines… What’s not to like?
