Neo-Cons push for war with Iran and Russia

"The war is not meant to be won.
It is meant to be continuous."
George Orwell
Both the Left and Right keep pushing
for more foreign wars.

By Gary;

Well I found myself turning off the warmongers on Fox News yet again.  This has become a regular event for me.

The latest Fox Talking Head was SCREAMING that the damn Russians are involved in Syria and Iraq and that they must be confronted at once.

The Talking head forgot to mention that Syria and Iraq had been socialist allies of the Soviets for decades. For example, the Russian support for Syria dates back to the 1940s and the Russian naval base in Syria to 1971.

The Talking Head also forgot to mention that there were not Russian troops in Syria until the CIA decided to arm and fund Islamist "rebels".

If the Russians were involved in those nations for decades then nothing much has really changed. So what is the fuss all about?

Also let's not bring up that Syria has somehow managed to do without U.S. troops for the last 10,000 years and that maybe the middle east is none of our business.

Bipartisan Warmongering

War for fun and profit is not a party line issue. In fact both parties lock arms to run unconstitutional wars from the Ukraine to Yemen to Libya to Syria.

The sound of silence is all you hear from either party.

  • Sen. Rand Paul  -  Silence and no filibusters is all you get from this great "Libertarian" fighter for freedom.
  • Sen. Ted Cruz  -  Silence and no filibusters is all you get from this great "Constitutional Conservative".
  • Sen. Chuck Schumer  - Silence and no filibusters is all you get from this champion of Liberalism.
  • Sen. Dianne Feinstein  -  Silence and no filibusters is all you get from this champion of Liberalism.

We see the right-wing Washington Times join in beating the war drums against Iran:

"Iran’s brutal Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force 
has played an extensive role in the rape of Aleppo, building a network 
of bases around the Syrian city and directing militiamen from Lebanon, 
Iraq and Afghanistan to do the killing . . . "

To get the Sheeple voters worked up for a good war Iran is painted as an evil rapist. There is no mention of Syria being leveled by CIA delivered weapons and an endless resupply of ammo.

President Trump (I just love that title) will be under enormous pressure from both warmonger parties to expand wars all over the world or be condemned as "weak".

Will Trump be able to bring peace when the Elites want endless war?

No need to curse .
If so on Crimea , or East Ukrain , US that will go further on Russia . And in Syria what US did to stop Assad , the Iranians , or Russia .
They ( CIA ?) stop support the 15 so call members of the Syria Free Army as you know .
Most extreme factions , and Assad prevail in the conflito .
Puting US boots on the ground only leave to turn all they attention to ciber US GIs.
You wrong Gary on this .
Obama did nothing , and the CIA cut all help cause they must abide to the White House .
Formost of the Syria war , US was out .
Some USArmy counselors in the Iraqui army and the kurds , yes , but without fighting role .
