Kerry was always dumb as a stump, in fact he was so dumb, he revealed what a traitor he was long ago.

I have just started watching the hearings. Has anyone asked Kerry, Hagel, or Dempsey what they estimate will be the number of Syrian casualties from our action, especially civilians?

Kerry seemed to say that this was not war because no American would be put at risk. It is certainly war for the Syrians.

Don’t be a jerk. Was the question asked about an estimate of Syrian casualties? That is my question.

Jeff Duncan elicited the contemptuous money quote from Kerry. He wasn’t going to have “yet another discussion about Benghazi.”

I’m sure the families of the 4 Americans who were murdered during a terrorist attack last 9/11 appreciate that sentiment.

Duncan pushed some buttons and Kerry was pissed. Royally pissed with a new one the size of Texas.

Yes...you are exactly right.

Once people realize that none of the International and National decisions are made with it's citizens in mind...then they can remove that “fog” and see what's really going on.

People are their pawns on the game table they play on...way above our realities. They are in a fierce battle for who will sit where and with how much at the Global Table forming......The Saudi’s have the oil revenues...which gives them leverage.....the NWO cannot function with revenue producing nations....so the ME leaders are all fighting to see which Group brings the most to the Globalist table.....

Saudi wants Syria out of Irans hands....thus they will come in quickly and assume leadership with their own select people, which are standing by now.

It's remarkably clear....once one realizes people are only the “ revenue generating mechanisms” for nations to acquire wealth...and this to position themselves at the Global table where ALL the shots will be determined for each nation.... (the more you bring to the table in wealth and resources the more power you weld and hold)...and it's all going to be focused across the ocean...not here....we're being drained and weakened in order for the world power to rise across the ocean...

....which is why it's all happening over there....why all our manufacturing and our wealth has been outsourced there as well as our people who have exceptional skills...and why all the banking giants have moved there....

WE have nothing left, for the most part, except our military....and they are going to use it as we now see clearly.

All I heard in that area was a question about "collateral damage." Response was "low" but no specifics were offered or pressed for.

Hezbollah and all the Jihadists have been told by their leadership...(which are foreign leaders) “Do not interfer if the US strikes”......Now doesn’t that speak volumes????

They all know the SAuds are using our Military and as usual we are the last to know.

The idea is to netralize Assads Amry and when the time comes they’ll storm Assads strongholds.....

The question remains...who will get their first...and that’s when you’ll see further fighting..and fiercely so...among all the factions there.....

The citizens aren’t going to count...they see their live as nothing more than something ‘That happens”....and worth tthe ultimate gain.

So many will continue to die....Remember...Middle Easterners do not see life as we do...they belong to death cults so it’s honorable to die...better then life.

Remember, Duncan held up a photograph of Navy Seal Woods. Perhaps he died in Benghazi because he heard pleas for help and fulfilled his obligation.

But, at the same time, Navy Seal Woods was hired to be IN LIBYA looking for the missing MANPADS. It is known that a Libya ship docks in Turkey with MANPADS and weapons bound for Syria.

We are in this knee deep! It is obvious listening to hearings today, that our military force is only useful for the Saudis.

I’m more concerned with how many of our troops will die....not a single one is worth this dastardly attempt to strike Assad nor the country...not one!

The only time those people care about they dying is when they can parade them over the news.....their religion says to die for Islam is an honor..and erases the sins of family members when they do so...so death for these fighters ‘is’ life.

But the fighting will be fierce among those on the ground fighting for the Sauds..and those fighting for Iran.

If this country stands against what’s happening in our governance...it will be by those over 30 years old...the rest are basically useless as they have little interest and no ambition or understanding of what is at stake...nor do they care...and even those over 30 is pushing it.

The rest are in the Obama camp...dunderheads who have been so brainwashed by the liberals they are simply yes men.

The Dim-Bulb-Question of the Day Award has to go to Rep. Bera (D.,CA) who, after sitting through three hours of Q & A's, asked the troika panel "What can I tell my constituents back home when they're worried and they ask me about this contemplated move against Assad?"

If he even has to ask that question after hearing nothing but impassioned answers all day from Larry, Curley and General Moe, then we have the answer as to what the intelligence level is of the California Dems and other low IQ-types who voted this dork into office.

We're really in trouble when Mensas like Bera hold our fates in their hands. He's not only all screwed up when trying to think of any pertinent or meaningful question, but he probably has to sing "Happy Birthday" to himself when someone asks him what his name is.

Many on the left “dial a mob” groups are relatively quiet while their hero Bozo struts his stuff on the International and National stage.

When we recognize that these groups are simply called on..and lead... by political entities to stir, to incite, to hammer, etc. and have no useful purpose than that...then you can pretty much gage when they will or not come out.

Who sponsors all the posters reveals much.

I am more concerned about Syrian casualties due to our military action. I have no doubt that the civil war will continue until one side or the other wins militarily and there will be a bloodbath to conclude it.

I was in Iran when Khomeini replaced the Shah. Khomeimi killed off many of his opponents using Stalinist war trials. Assad is fighting for his life as are many of his supporters.

So many will continue to die....Remember...Middle Easterners do not see life as we do...they belong to death cults so it’s honorable to die...better then life.

I spent five years in Saudi Arabia including during Desert Shield/Storm and two years in Iran. Personally, I believe that this death cult and willing to die rather than capitulate is overblown. The Iraqis surrendered en masse including to newsmen. They didn't want to die for Saddam, And the mullahs in Iran do not want to commit suicide either by attacking Israel or us. The leaders of these countries want to survive and will do whatever is necessary to do so.

My son was in Desert Shield/Storm...

But my reference is that of the Jihadists and terrorists....but even as you say....right now there are those who have stated on both sides in Syria and among their military ready and willing for suicide missions against the US and any who come into their line of fire.

I disagree that the idea of dying isn’t formost among the people...they see death as a reward.....no matter how many troops in Iraq surrendered.....Syria is not to be compared...different war...different groups fighting...

We will just agree to disagree. I have lived a total of nine years in three Muslim countries. They value the lives of their children just as much as we do. Tribalism and a biblical sense of justice coarsens the way they treat their enemies and those who violate their laws and mores.

I don't expect a large number of suicide attacks against us. Militarily, they present no real threat to us. Terrorism is the most likely retaliation against a military strike in Syria. None of the countries in the region want any such attacks to be overtly tied to them.

We will ‘definately’ have to disagree kabar....perhaps you shouldn’t have lived among the Muslims so long...from the sound of your post I would have to determine so. The ‘facts’ of what Muslims believe, practice, and their behavior speak otherwise.
