"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception."

Coalition of the willing on Syria includes such
superpowers as Albania, Estonia, Honduras
Bullshit Alert - The political Bullshit is flowing deep and heavy. Here is my latest theory. Obama does not care if there is a war or not. This has all been a cynical ploy to keep the Police State NSA and IRS scandals off TV and the media.
If war "breaks" out, fine for Obama. War crushes scandal stories. But a threat of possible war could be dragged out for months accomplishing the same thing.
In any case, Obama goes on playing the game of war for TV. He is telling the weak of mind about all the "allies" we have in attacking Syria. None of these countries are sending their military to help, but don't worry, we are in their thoughts.
The White House announced Monday that Albania is on board with the Obama administration’s plans to punish Syria.
Tiny Estonia, too, has agreed that Syria must be held accountable for using chemical weapons. And Croatia, Denmark, Germany, Honduras, Hungary, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania and Morocco.
And let’s not leave out Qatar, Romania and the United Arab Emirates.
They are the latest countries to sign on to a statement condemning the Syrian regime and calling for a “strong international response,” although not necessarily the missile strikes proposed by Obama. A total of 25 nations support the statement, including the U.S. and Great Britain.
Bullshit Alert - Politicians are talking.
How many divisions will Albania send to Syria when Obama goes in to "protect" the chemical weapons sites he just bombed? If your number is near zero you win our grand prize - a one week vacation in beautiful Lebanon. (Kevlar vest not included.)
Saudi Arabia is all hot to trot to get Syria. I say let the Saudis send in their own air force. Keep the U.S. out of the Middle Eastern insanity. The Royal Saudi Air Force maintains the third largest fleet of F-15s after the USAF and the JASDF.
