Am I supposed to care about this?
The UN observed that the WMDs were used by Obama’s
allies, al Qaeda.
Wag the dog
Am I supposed to care about this?
Wag the dog in progress...
Did they get that from Verizon?
And just in a nick of time too!!!
The NeoCons will have their war no matter who must die. We are about to jump off the cliff with the no-fly in Syria. The Syrians are likely to have a relatively robust Russian surface to air defense system operational and ready to try against the NATO aircraft.....we are at the cusp of a WW.
No kidding I’m so freaking tired of this stupidity that I can’t see straight. Just like Egypt, we give them billions and they are caught on open mic talking about their war against us.
Did Saddam have enough chemical weapons to justify moving them to Syria?
I'm still in the dark as to how many chemical weapons Saddam had. The left would have us believe that there were virtually none. Where does the truth lie, and is this what Syria is using?
Yeah, Obama is under the microscope, so that means we need to get more Americans dead for Islam.
You is supposed to cry for syrian Muzzies.
That red line will keep moving.
Am I supposed to care about this?
He wants to arm the rebels and bring 1.6 million Syrians to the US and probably more he ‘s not saying
Well... as for the jihadis fighting them.. must suck to be them, eh?
Yes, and Assad is winning and will slaughter that many 0b0z0 allies if they don’t leave Syria!
0c0ward will never, ever challenge Russia, China and Iran, period!
The Caliphate project will be stopped dead. Just wait for an “Arab summer” that will melt the 0h0m0llah’s installed Ikhwan allies.
Arm both sides and let them fight to the last man!
So I'm not inclined to take their word about chemical weapons because whatever the truth is, the people informing us have no particular allegiance to truth. They will say whatever serves their agenda of the moment.
On the one hand, you have Syria who is Iran's catspaw. Toppling Assad means denying Iran its window to the Mediterranean. That's a worthy goal.
Then you have the rebels, who include AlQaeda, and who have been slaughtering Christians.
The President has been clear that the use of chemical weapons or the transfer of chemical weapons to terrorist groups is a red line for the United States
You would think slaughtering Christians would be some kind of red line.
0bama has conducted chemical warfare on the US by flying AF1 all over spewing deadly CO2 by the ton.
The ones that didn't stop the 911 attacks?
Who says they are correct?
Considering our national debt and other reasons, we should just say out of it.
In a war between an Evil and violent dictator vs. the Muslim Brotherhood - I find it hard to “pick a side” - they are both equally bad.
The ones that didn’t stop the Boston Marathon bombings too.
The only solution is to wipe both of them out. But given the consistent removal of war footing by this country over the past few decades, who has the intestinal fortitude to do that, especially in DC?
So Obama is going to Congress to get approval for military action?
No shit Sherlock moment..just forget all those pesky little scandals here.
Did any Americans get killed?
Actually I know what was in 'Private Ryan' but we actually used more SNAFU. [essentially the same meaning].
Then sell raffle tickets to see who gets to shoot the last jihadi standing.
All proceeds from the ticket sales are to go to the health and maintenance of Nebraska hog farms.
How convenient for zero,zippy,bozo,obammie,head tool...
Seething mad right now at this BS. Who is gonna stop this madness and when?
Guess it’s time for BO to move that line.
On the basis of what fact did you draft “Neocons” into the conversation?
I like it!
Only question was when would it be of greatest use.
What will overshadow the myriad scandals swirling around?
Obama, importing jihad, killing and bankrupting America and saving money on Obamacare.
Lets put it this way, he will import the death panels.
Sounds like the Obama cult has dreamed up a weapons of mass distraction plan.
Does anyone question the Obama Intelligence Services?
Obama tells them the answer he wants and they get it for him.
We have honest people working in those agencies.
They are being spied on by the NSA, too. The most important function of the NSA is to root out dissension in the ranks!
From dear leader?
McCain, Graham, Krauthammer, all the tools that advised GWB and others qualify, http://www.freedomvrights.com/classicalvneo.html:
“Neo-conservatives and classical conservatives may very well share positions on some issues. Perhaps this is why neo-conservatives frequently regard themselves as simply conservative. But the formal assumptions from which they begin are logically incompatible with one another. That neo-conservatism and classical conservatism are as distinct from each other as the utilitarian and natural law traditions can be seen from their respective answers to questions concerning the basic character of reason/knowledge, morality, and the State.
Reason/knowledge. Neo-conservatives, whether they explicitly admit as much, endorse a trans-cultural, trans-historical conception of Reason. Reason, on this score, while influenced by tradition, is ultimately capable of rising over and against it. When neo-conservatives (and others, for that matter) approvingly cite Jeffersons affirmation of self-evident truths, this is the model of Reason on which they rely.
Classical conservatives, in contrast, from at least the time of Burke in the eighteenth century, have repeatedly rejected this notion of Reason as a rationalists dream. The individual has reason, it is true, but his reason is the product of centuries of tradition. Knowledge consists not in the abstract intellectual apprehension of self-evident truths, but in unarticulated feelings, habits, and customs that have become second nature.
Morality. Inseparable from the neo-conservatives abstract, universalistic, tradition-neutral notion of Reason is an equally abstract, universalistic, tradition-neutral conception of morality. Morality is comprised essentially of principles, specifically, principles of natural or human right. Neo-conservatives are as given to the language of human rights as are their ideological opponents on the Left. These principles are uniquely accessible to all rational beings.
Classical conservatives, on the other hand, have tended to eschew all talk of natural rights and/or human rights. Morality is local, tradition-constituted. Whatever principles there may be, they are the offspring of a historically specific, shared way of life, and not its parent: principle stands in relation to practice the way cliff notes relate to the text that they summarize, not the other way around.
The State. Neo-conservatives, like ideologues of various left and right wing persuasions, conceive the State as an enterprise association. This is the term that the twentieth century conservative British philosopher Michael Oakeshott used to describe a model of the State on which it is said to exist for the sake of bringing to fruition some premeditated ideal or end, like Freedom, Equality, Virtue, Security, Prosperity, or Democracy. The ideal is held to transcend society, but it is the goal toward the accomplishment of which the resources of citizens must be deployed. At no time is a State more like an enterprise association than during times of war, for it is when a state is at war that government must have every available quantum of power at its disposal in order to insure victory. Also, it is in war that citizens are expected to make a concerted effort to bring about the telos, the purpose, for the sake of which the association exists. This explains why even when a nation is not literally at war, ideologues on both the Right and Left avail themselves of the language of war in order to unify support behind their favored causes (The War on Poverty, The War on Drugs, The Cultural Wars, etc.).....”
In conclusion, neo-conservatism really isnt an expression of conservatism at all. It is a form of Enlightenment liberal rationalism, the sort of liberal rationalism in reaction against which conservatism originally emerged and developed as a distinctive tradition of thought.
Thanks for the detailed response. Wanted to make sure you weren’t one of those “It’s The Jews’ Fault!” kinda guys....
