"If Americans Could Read Classified Documents They'd Be Even More Against Syrian War"
Mish's Global Economic Trend Analysis ^ | 09/09/2013 | Mike Shedlock

Posted on 09/09/2013 7:05:56 AM PDT by Rusty0604

Here's a quartet of interesting tweets from House of Representative member Justin Amash Republican from Michigan.

Tweet #1: If Americans could read classified docs, they'd be even more against Syria action. Obama admn's public statements are misleading at best.

Tweet #2: Attended another classified briefing on Syria & reviewed add'l materials. Now more skeptical than ever. Can't believe Pres is pushing war.

Tweet #3: Asked Obama admn officials to correct admn's public statements that are inconsistent w/ info presented at briefings. Public must have facts.

Tweet #4: If you're voting yes on military action in Syria, might as well start cleaning out your office. Unprecedented level of public opposition.

I don't need classified documents, just the bottom line:

Cost of Afghan and Iraq wars to date: http://nationalpriorities.org/cost-of/

Total Cost of Wars Since 2001 Every hour, taxpayers in the United States are paying $11.26 million for Total Cost of Wars Since 2001.

= $1,471,006,425,281

Americans COULD read classified documents if a whistle blower stepped forward to expose the President's lies.

$1.4 trillion to chase Saddam Hussein into a hole and Bin Laden to move to Pakistan.

That’s EXACTLY right, thank you! Whatever the damn justification....we simply don’t have the money.

These idiots are going to spend spend spend on stupidities like this and weaken us militarily and economically for when we *really* need to defend ourselves.

But nah, we’ll be fine, right? It’s not like bad things happened to empires from Rome to Britain for overextending themselves, right?

What people don't get is that Obama is acting rationally. All you have to do is assume that he wants al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood to win the war in Syria. And he is just doing what he can to help.

Do that and everything we see and hear about Syria makes perfect sense.

Do not overlook the tendency--at least since the 1930s--for those who actively wish to impose a World Government over the nations of the earth, to seek employment in our State Department.

We have a President who openly disparages the very concept of "American Exceptionalism"; who calls for redistribution of Wealth; whose identification with role models, involved those with no actual ties to America or American values; who sat in the pews in a Church for 20 years, where America was openly "damned."

What you refer to as "stupidities" may be something even worse.

Is this what he meant when he confided to Putin at the summit meeting that he could be" very flexible " ? I don't think so .. !

Good point. We are dealing with Marxists here, and their goal was explicitly world government.
