Breaking News: U.S. Airstrikes Against Syria to Begin Within the Hour
I watched the speech with the sound down and the despite this backdown by Obomber I was disgusted by his attempted guilt trip of the American people with the we must stand up for what is right, blah, blah, blah, invoking COUNTLESS DEATHS now, and the whole rigamarole that we have heard all before when we are the world's champion in use of chemical weapons (also supplied to Israel).
The reason I am not very hopeful is because AIPAC controls the U.S. Congress. Somehow I think Obama will be able to squeeze through the vote. So this action has only been delayed. If at first you don't succeed, lie, lie again. Nevertheless, I think I'll be making some calls to Congress this week. Looks like I'm not the only one who noticed such things.
Just a reminder: Syrians in Ghouta Claim Saudi-Supplied Rebels Behind Chemical Attack
UPDATE: I need to step out this morning to do a few things, maybe go check out a protest, so I may miss the start of this thing; however, I will be monitoring this story and this situation all day today and will be updating this post constantly in a running repost.
UN chemical weapons experts leave Syria
Any U.S. action carries the potential to trigger retaliation by the Syrian regime or its proxies against U.S. allies in the region, such as Jordan, Turkey and Israel. That would inject a dangerous new dynamic into a Syrian civil war that has already killed more than 100,000 people, forced nearly 2 million to flee the country and inflamed sectarian tensions across the Middle East."
Some people sure are hoping this thing spreads, others not so much (God Bless 'em!).

Obomber is going to go ahead anyway as his administration, in the form the repugnant liar John Kerry (no wonder Israel wanted him for State), even as I am told how antiwar these folks down there are supposed to be as the AmeriKan media jumps on the bandwagon of lies yet again. The Boston Globe finds the "evidence" to be "direct and impressive," even thought they haven't seen any (didn't they say the same thing about Colin Powell's lies?). All they have seen is Israeli-supplied, U.S. government bull shit. And it's the same old double standard when it comes to USraeli chemical weapons use. Only we are allowed to use the stuff with impunity.
Nothing like waking upon a Saturday morning and being served a steaming, swirling plate of shit for "news."
Oh, yeah, in case the chemical weapons story isn't flying with you, would you be okay with the strike if Syrians were to blame for spiking oil prices (despite the fracking savior offered by the Globe. Prices are linked to that printing press of the Fed now, not the old laws of supply and demand)?
Word coming out now (10:10 edt) is Syria is transporting opponent prisoners into areas likely to be hit to use as human shields, blah, blah, blah. This propaganda coming forth from the Jewish War Media and AmeriKan government is absolutely shameless -- and criminal.
It's almost 11:30 and I'm leaving Al-Jewzeera on for the day. I know it's $unni money's me$$age because it's almost identical to the corporate AmeriKan press (and why wouldn't they be? They are the funders of the insurgents). They have mentioned some of the things I have, particularly the Saudi source and insurgent attacks using chemical weapons; however, they are usually quickly dismissed and that's that.
