GENERAL WESLEY CLARK, Former NATO Supreme Allied Commander, Breaks Down Terrorist & Mideast Countries Generalizations Into Specifics We Can All Understand. And Why Would Turkey, A Country With No Nukes of Its Own, Dare To Shoot Down Aircraft In Turkey’s Airspace Belonging To Russia, A Country With Oodles Of Nukes? If Mike Tyson Steps On Your Foot, Isn’t It Incumbent Upon You To Issue Apologies, Generally Speaking? That Is – Unless You Are Accompanied By A Brother, Who Is A Cop! Finally, Are You Too Young, Too Naïve, Too Stupid To Be Told By The MSM The Ramifications Of International Events? Is It NEWS, Or Is It PABLUM!

A search-and-rescue mission has been launched, but the fate of two ejected pilots is still unclear. Russia is claiming one of them is dead, and there are reports the other has been captured. Russia’s also saying one of its marines was killed in the rescue operation.

Moscow is furious! Russian President Putin called this “a stab in the back that will have serious consequences”.

Want to get right to CNN’s Barbara Starr at the Pentagon!

Barbara, what are U.S. officials telling you?

BARBARA STARR, CNN PENTAGON CORRESPONDENT: Well, John, they are monitoring those Russian reports that at least one of the Russian pilots is dead, but, clearly, Washington wanting this situation not to escalate out of control, trying to keep it calm, and one reason may be that right now, at this hour, the Pentagon cannot say for sure that the Russian plane was shot down inside Turkish airspace.

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
