ANOTHER WAR?! It looks like the threat of endless war is coming to fruition.

It came to fruition many years ago.

Obama is simply an employee of the Pentagon psyop office. He's a psyop president for a psyop democracy. He couldn't even close Guantanamo. We, the people, don't want war -- they couldn't care less what we want.

To recognize the true power centers ask yourself which groups, entities, organizations have unlimited budgets no matter what and which of the same are never called on their criminal behavior.

Of course Obama will invade Syria
Just like he invaded Tunisia
Just like he invaded Egypt
Just like he invaded Libya

Glad to see you are fine with air raids instead of troops on the ground. I hope you hold yourself to higher standards than you do the people who work for you.

They bombed the fuck out of Libya. Or did you forget about that?

"They bombed civilians in the name of saving civilians." - Dennis Kucinich

Go look at pictures of Sirte. The destruction is sad.

NATO killed more civilians and caused more destruction in Libya in 2011 than Gaddafi did.

Gaddafi was no saint, but that war was not justified and was solely continuing the Neocon war agenda.

People like you say Obama and NATO liberated Libya.... yeah and Republicans think they liberated Iraq.

Oh did they have an election? Is that really what makes it all better? So did Iraq.

Destabilize and conquer.

Marines are now in Libya due to the Bengazi thing....looks like another occupation is well under way.

"They". No, the president ordered it and "they" did their jobs in Libya. "They" were directed.

In this case, the pentagon is just stating what it will need to do the job. The job itself is directed by Obama, the "neocon" according to you.

Figure out who is who if you want to assign blame. The pentagon does what it's told.

the Pentagon/CIA etc comes up with the strategies and options. Then the prez makes the decision. Prez also makes important appointments to those roles at the CIA and the Pentagon.

Also you shouldn't operate on assumptions.

Watching Lebanon slide into another civil war. Unforgivable.

Through covert ops, funding opposition, drone strikes, all the way to invasions

Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, Somalia, Syria, Iran.

destabilize and conquer is their strategy in the middle east.

It was like this in South and Latin American countries, Middle East, and Africa.

I don't get how people are not seeing the obvious repeat in history.

Does no one remember the failed policies of the Reagan era of funding opposition groups like the Muhajideen? Because it's happening all over again.

Our foreign policies have not changed in some 80 years. The game doesn't change. Nobody else's game changed either.

Neocon war agenda still underway.

4 Star General Wesley Clark broke the story. Listed all the countries.

Oliver Stone made a movie about it. "Iran is the prize in the center"

It wasn't even that long ago when Syria first hit the National News circuit here in the states and people got on the forum for a few days with why it's humanitarian to invade the country. Many people are so easily talked into war being "good." Look at Libya.

These wars are wrong!

thanks for sharing the info.
