Obama Wants Turkey/Israel to Help Bomb Shit Outta Syria

Some people still don’t get that Obama is a pragmatist with a heart of stone. Both domestically and internationally speaking.

Internationally speaking, according to Melkulangara Bhadrakumar, Obama got what he wanted from the trip to Israel when at the very end of it he played catalyst to Turkey's and Israel's “making up” after the killing of nine Turkish nationals by Israeli commandos in the 2010 Turkish flotilla on a humanitarian mission to help the Palestinians of Gaza.

Biden Hotel Tab for 2 London/Paris Nights? $1 Million!

Oliver Knox on January 18, 2013 published this in his article in yahoo news “Bidens head to crisis-hit Europe”:

Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, will travel to Germany, France and Britain, the White House announced.
.
This will be no pleasure cruise, and it could even be (to paraphrase the vice president) a big frikkin' deal. Those allies have been wrestling with Europe’s profound economic woes, which threaten America's recovery ...

Iraq War Criminality Sustained These 10 Bloody Years

So tell me, as the years have gone by and more and more has become known about the colossal mendacity used to justify and trigger the Iraq War, which some of us knew from the get-go, how come the shock, awe and gratuitous killings, overt and covert, have steamrolled onward within and without Iraq these ten bloody years?

100 Gitmo Hunger Strikers Appeal to Zero Dark Americans

Word has it 100 of the 166 inmates of Guantanamo are participating in a hunger strike.

The innocent detainees (“officially” 86 but God only knows how many more) of Guantanamo apparently still think there is a snowball’s chance in hell that if Zero Dark Americans -- especially the deluded “personality over principle” progressives -- really knew the truth of what had and has been happening to them before and during their unending detainments, the colossal abuses they have had to endure (and especially lately that they are enduring) not to mention their colossal and ever escalating despair after 11 LONG YEARS of incarceration without due process -- waiting, waiting, waiting for a not slow-go but really NO-go Obama-Godot, then those Zero Dark Americans would actually give a serious shit.

Hedges: Tomas Young’s Iraq War Survival, Dissent & Life End

Departments: 

Chris Hedges’ eloquent, heart-breaking account entitled “The Crucifixion of Tomas Young” is worth a full reading.

Hedges recently traveled to Kansas City to visit the disabled 33-year old Army veteran, Tomas Young, who had been the subject of a movie documentary entitled “Body of War” and whose paraplegic body since then has deteriorated to such a degree Young has decided to put an end to its horrifying regression.

Fascist Obama & Personality Over Principle Progressives

The CIA Director will be John Brennan.

Norman Pollack in “Architect of Terror” points out some of the dimensions of Brennan’s oversight (familiar territory already to him): armed drones, targeted assassinations, rendition, black holes, subsidies to domestic fascist groups for breaking up "radical" rallies, and other “cloak and dagger” sadism.

Pollack also writes: “In Obama, the Agency, along with JSOC, has its impressario, cheerleader, and now tactical adviser, rolled in one.” Read below the fold...

Libby’s Political Stew: Drones, Rand Paul, Brennan, Jane Fonda

Rand Paul’s Message to Obama: Don’t Drone Me Bro
by Medea Benjamin

[Benjamin comments on how Rand Paul brought up the question that if drones had existed back in the tumultuous anti-Vietnam War 60’s and 70’s, would Jane Fonda and students at Kent State college have been droned or threatened with droning for treason with their protests? He warns that the threshold of defining the enemy may become so lowered that “free speech and assembly” could become regarded as dangerous insurgency.] Read below the fold...

John Kerry Lipsticks the Syrian War Pig

The humanitarian crisis in Syria is an indictment of the United States, Britain and the other major powers that have deliberately stoked the sectarian civil war, and given support to a rag-tag opposition, dominated by reactionary Islamist tendencies, in a bid to oust the Assad regime and install a pliant puppet government. The US and its allies cynically exploit the social disaster they have helped create, in order to intensify the push to remove Assad. Oliver Campbell
