SYRIAN WAR GAMES! Syria “10 Times Worse Than Hell”, But “Where Is MSM?”, You Ask! How Can Foreign Genocide & Potential Nuclear War Possibly Compare To Trump’s Penis & Hillary’s E-Mails! Michael Morell, Former CIA Chief, Details Why Syrian Civil War Must End – BUT No Military Solution Possible! Tabacco: “No Corporation Pursuing US Military Contracts Should Ever Be Allowed To Lobby DC Government Officials! Why Not? Because They Promote War For Profits Not National Security!”
Posted on August 24, 2016 by
MICHAEL MORELL: The Syrian Civil War has to end! And the reason it has to end is because it is feeding Extremism in Iraq and Syria.
Even if we get our arms around ISIS and squeeze ISIS down and down and down and down, the Civil War will continue to breed Extremism. ISIS will go away, and some other Group will replace it.
The Syrian Civil War needs to end! In my view there is Not a Military Solution to that! And the reason there is not a military solution to that is because a military solution would end up with the destruction of the Syrian Military, the Syrian Security Services, Syrian Intelligence Services, etc. etc. etc., Syrian Police. And if you destroy all of those in an attempt to end the Civil War, you are left with a complete vacuum: Security Vacuum, Stability Vacuum – you end up with LIBYA or IRAQ! Continue reading
FAREED ZAKARIA On USA’s ‘PERPETUAL WARS’, “You Know You Are In Trouble When Your Strategy’s Success Produces More Problems Than Its Failure”.
Posted on May 22, 2016 by
Fareed Zakaria: Certainly, as most administrations would, Obama and Rhodes sought to present their actions in a positive light so Obama congratulates himself for stepping back from the edge of military invention in Syria. He never grapples with the fact that it was his own careless rhetoric about Assad’s fate and red lines that produced the crisis in the first place.
But on the most important issue of substance, Obama is right and his critics are wrong.
The chief lesson for American foreign policy over the last 15 years is that it is much easier to defeat a military opponent in the greater Middle East than to establish political order in these troubled lands. In Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya, it took just weeks to defeat the old regime. But years later, despite varying approaches, all these countries remain in chaos.
Can anyone seriously argue that a few more troops here or a slightly different strategy there would have created stability and peace when you have instability in all three? Continue reading
“SAUDI ARABIA IS CENTER OF RADICAL ISLAMIC EXTREMISM Spreading Among SUNNI Muslims! Cut Off The Flow Of Arms & Stop Bombing To Stem Atrocities”, Noam Chomsky To Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton & Republican Party. Chomsky Explains What Mainstream American Media Dare Not Mention: Why ISIS Even Exists In The First Place. Also, How Obama Mimicked Bush By Concocting Terror Threat To Justify Syrian Strikes As Bush Did In Iraq (While The Media Meekly Goose-stepped That Old Rubber Stamp). And That’s Not The Only Political War Trickery Obama Learned From Bush Regime: ENDLESS WAR To Achieve ENDLESS PROFITS, Leading To National INSECURITY For The Rest Of Us! To Paraphrase/Recreate An Old Phrase, “Arms For The Poor” (And What Did Einstein Say About Insanity?)
Posted on May 18, 2016 by
Tabacco: The whole Truth is that President Obama and Hillary Clinton MUST COMPETE with the Republican Party – and in particular DONALD TRUMP for MSM Coverage and Street Cred! If it’s NOT DRAMATIC, Dems get no coverage nor does the Public think Obama and Dems are doing their jobs! That’s the double-edged sword wielded by the GOP & Donald Trump!
Noam Chomsky: Saudi Arabia itself has one of the most grotesque human rights records in the world. The ISIS beheadings, which shock everyone—I think Saudi Arabia is the only country where you have regular beheadings. That’s the least of it. Women have no—can’t drive, so on and so forth. And it is strongly backed by the United States and its allies, Britain and France. Reason? It’s got a lot of oil. It’s got a lot of money. You can sell them a lot of arms; I think tens of billions of dollars of arms. And the actions that it’s carrying out, for example, in Yemen, which you mentioned, are causing an immense humanitarian catastrophe in a pretty poor country, also stimulating jihadi terrorism, naturally, with U.S. and also British arms. French are trying to get into it, as well. This is a very ugly story!
But, Noam! The Saudis are our OPEC OIL BUDDIES of long standing! What are you attempting to do here – make Politicians respond honorably to Inconvenient Facts they already know and scrupulously ignore? (Remember how George W. Bush escorted Saudis out of America for their own Safety via Government Airplanes when nobody else in USA could fly immediately after 9/11/2001!) Continue reading

When You Lie To US, Tabacco Exposes The Truth! Go Ahead, Mr. Prez, Keep On Lying To US! At 73, What Else Have I Got To Do That’s As Important! To Grandparents & Parents: Those War Killer Video Games, That Your Offspring Love So Much, Desensitizes The Little Ones To Brutality & Murder So That They Grow Up And Do ‘The Real Thing’ Once The Pentagon Gets Its Claws On Them! (ATTENTION GOP: REFUGEES ARE NOT TERRORISTS!) When Drone Operator ‘Robots’ Return Stateside, They Suffer A Deep Seated Guilt Complex (PTSD/Posttraumatic Stress Disorder) And/Or They Do The Same To Their Loved Ones! Why? PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!

NICK TURSE: Well, just this morning—you know, it’s not something I reported on, just something I’ve been following on the news—we see that Kenyan forces that we’ve been backing have set up extensive smuggling networks in Somalia. They seem to have been putting down roots themselves in bases. I noticed that one of them is Kismayo, where the U.S. is supposedly flying drones out of and has a special operations base. That’s now apparently a smuggling hub for the Kenyan military, in league with the terrorist group al-Shabab. They seem to be working in concert to smuggle sugar. There’s also been charcoal smuggling in the region. So—and this is a force that the U.S. has been backing. And yeah, the U.S. has funded the Kenyans so that we wouldn’t have large numbers of troops on the ground. Continue reading
WHY USA POLITICIANS WANT WAR STALEMATE, NOT VICTORY! 2 Voices Of Reason In The Wilderness Of American Middle East ‘Foreign Policy’: AKA Destabilization, Militarism, War & ‘No Boots On The Ground’ & UNWINNABLE WAR Or Just Plain OPEC Capitalism! Is It A Failed Foreign Policy? No! Only The Naïve & The Mendacious Would Call It That! These Politicians Know What They Are Doing, And They Know The Likely Results. Genocide Is Fine So Long As It’s Not Us! Al Qaeda & The Taliban Were A Dream Come True For George W. Bush! ISIS Or ISIL Is A Dream Come True For Obama! On Top Of That, Now Putin Has Resuscitated That Old Bugaboo, The Russian Hammer & Sickle, To Facilitate American Abominations As ‘Necessary’ If Not Sufficient. Militarism As Solution To Greed Is As Old As Time Itself. Endless Mid East Wars Are Both Unwinnable & Profitable! Why Would America Want To Win Wars & End Wars When It’s Wars That Create Humongous Profits! Kill The ‘Golden Goose’? I Don’t Think So! When Will People Wake Up & Smell The Coffee? From Past History, The Answer To That One Is, ‘Never’!

PHYLLIS BENNIS: Well, I think, clearly, they have sent much of the world—not only the Islamic world, but that’s the part that we’re looking at right now—into far worse than turmoil, into absolute abject tragedy, when we see the results of these wars at the human level, when we see what it’s doing to the social fabric of these societies, that is going to take generations to repair.
I think that one of the things that’s so important, we hear from President Obama, over and over again, there is no military solution. And other times we hear the military side is not enough, it’s not sufficient. That’s where it’s just wrong. The first statement is right: There is no military solution. So when you look at what President Obama is doing militarily, I think it’s important to recognize it’s not just insufficient, it’s making impossible the kinds of diplomatic and negotiated and humanitarian and other kinds of efforts that could have a chance of ending these wars.
So, for example, if you’re in Iraq and the U.S., say, they get it right for one time—this almost never happens, but say they did—they identified a camp of ISIS fighters, there were 20 of them, and they’re really bad guys, they’ve done bad things, they’re going to do more bad things. They send a drone after them. There’s no civilians anywhere in the area. Only those 20 guys get killed. And the response in the U.S. is, “Yeah! We got the bad guys!” The response in Iraq is, “Yes, once again, the U.S. is bombing Sunnis in the interests of the Shia and the Kurds!” Continue reading

MICHAEL MCFAUL, FORMER U.S. AMBASSADOR TO RUSSIA, “We did have conversations, just so you know, when I was still in the
government, about the likelihood, probability, concerns of him going into Crimea, into Ukraine. We had those discussions. But to predict that, to say, oh, I know with certainty he`s going to go into Crimea on this date,
we`re not good at that. You`re right.”
TABACCO, “That is an EXCUSE, NOT a REASON! Exact dates are not necessary! But predicting Putin would do it is both necessary and essential so you can prepare your own response before the fact, not after the fact!”
MCFAUL, “We`re not good at that because we don`t have, you know, a lot of connectivity with president Putin personally. He`s a very isolated individual. He meets with only a very small handful of American leaders and the circle around him also, or not, people hanging out with the ambassador drinking vodka talks about what Putin thinks.” – TABACCO, “You’ve got Putin’s historical precedents, not to mention that illusive ‘psychohistorical’ assessment that should be in the CIA files! If we knew how to do it in the 1970s when Nixon was President, why have we forgotten how to do it in the 2010s! Is Tabacco the only one in America, who remembers anything prior to 9/11/2001!”

George W. Bush “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!” Speech Aboard Aircraft Carrier USS Abraham Lincoln On May 1, 2003. So If Iraq Was A Done Deal On May 1, 2003, Why Is It In 2014 Iraq Government Is Trying To Retake Fallujah From Al-Qaeda? Bush Not Only Lied Us Into War, He Lied Us Into Mythical Victory That Has Never Materialized. And Bush Knew In 2003 It Wasn’t Over! GOPers Always Call Out Dems Re Mistakes; Since Dems Won’t Do It, Tabacco Is Saddled With Job Of Calling Out Republicans On GOP Lies!

By Khalid Al-Ansary and Dana El Baltaji January 06, 2014:
Iraqi security forces, militias or tribesmen may soon start an attack to retake Fallujah from al-Qaeda-linked militants after about 9,000 families fled the city, a government official said.
“I believe that a final combat will take place soon,” Faleh al-Issawi, deputy head of the provincial council of Anbar, said by phone from Ramadi. “Fallujah city is totally controlled by militias and this extends to Garma,” a town about 15 kilometers (9 miles) away.
TABACCO: Can you count the years from 2003 to 2014? Continue reading
ANATOMY OF A LIE! History Of How George W. Bush Administration Lied To America To Seduce US Through Fear Into Iraq Invasion. The Excuse Was 9/11/2001 – The Reason Was War Profits From Iraqi Oil, Military Contractor Kickbacks To GOPers & To Prevent Saddam Hussein From Selling Iraqi Oil Exclusively To French, Germans & Russians While Excluding USA – That’s Why Bush Had To Invade And When: 2003! President Bush Is GUILTY OF WAR CRIMES! – Tabacco Inducts President George W. Bush Into The HALL OF SHAME!
Posted on August 11, 2013 by
The Washington Post reported the same year:
“Despite what you’ve seen on TV, torture is really only good at one thing: eliciting false confessions. Indeed, Bush-era torture techniques, we now know, were cold-bloodedly modeled after methods used by Chinese Communists to extract confessions from captured U.S. servicemen that they could then use for propaganda during the Korean War.
So as shocking as the latest revelation in a new Senate Armed Services Committee report may be, it actually makes sense — in a nauseating way. The White House started pushing the use of torture not when faced with a “ticking time bomb” scenario from terrorists, but when officials in 2002 were desperately casting about for ways to tie Iraq to the 9/11 attacks — in order to strengthen their public case for invading a country that had nothing to do with 9/11 at all.” – TABACCO: 2002 was at front end of George W. Bush Administration! Continue reading
IRAQ TODAY: BUSH’S PROMISES VS. THE TRUTH! Former President, George W. Bush, Told Us, “The War Will Pay For Itself”, And, “Saddam Was Complicit With Osama bin Laden, But We Will Bring Democracy To Iraq!” Ten Years Later, We Know The War Didn’t Pay For Itself, Saddam Had Nothing To Do With 9/11 And What We Brought To Iraq Is Mass Displacement, Genocide, An Epidemic Of Cancers And Birth Defects & EMPTY PROMISES. Iraq Has About As Much Democracy As We Do – But America Got The Iraqi Oil, And Military Contractors Made Out Like Bandits! The Truth Is Iraq Would Be A Helluvalot Better Off Today WITH Saddam Hussein & Without American “Benevolence”!

DAHR JAMAIL: Overall, the country has seen a massive increase in cancer rates from the 1991 Gulf War up to present, even according to official Iraqi government statistics. In 1991, for example, there were 40 registered cases of cancer out of 100,000 Iraqis. By 1995, four years after that war, that number had jumped to 800 out of 100,000 Iraqis. And then—by 2005, that number had doubled— TABACCO: Do you even care? Obviously, America’s Politicians and our Mainstream Media don’t! Continue reading
