Please keep telling me how brilliant Obama is after an "off-the-cuff" remark he never meant will make him bomb Syria to avoid being mocked.
Idea fer Obama and his U.N. nobel "peace" butt buddies-

Since Syria's a rather large country, maybe they should draw red lines half way through it and around it.

Hezobollah, Hamas, PLO, al qeader and all other thugs of anarchy to the north (closest to Russia). Continue on bombing and maiming each other. Rename it it Thugandpalsistani.

Syrian military and those who can abide by government codes, to the south--have an election and choose whether Assad stays or goes. Assad doesn't like it, he can go live in Thugsandpalsistani.

Red lines on each of and around the borders. All Thugs will trying to illegally migrate out of Thugandpalsistani back to civilized existance will be dealt with accordingly.

A permanent Red X target marker will be placed on the maps of the world, honoring the newest failed statehood of Thugsandpalsistani, as well as doubling as a "in case of terrorizing other violations precision bomb lobbing back" marker.

That oughta do it.

The Tunisian President Ben Ali and Mubarak of Egypt will be very surprised at the way in which they were shown the door by their American master but the main objective was Libya and Syria, not Tunisia and Egypt: regime change in the latter two States were to serve as a justification for those in Libya and Syria. They were, that is, the forerunners.

Again, as in the past, the facts followed the protocols of regime-change prepared by Gene Sharp and his associates: street demonstrations, provocation, days of rage, events on social networks, fierce stigma of government responses.

The news that Western newspapers and television reported about the atrocities attributed to Gaddafi in suppressing the revolt were for the benefit of Western audiences. The Libyans soon discovered the truth: Gaddafi didn't bomb Benghazi with the air force in retaliation for the riots, causing twenty thousand deaths in one day. The satellite photos provided to the UN by Russians proved it, showing the absence of craters, but in vain. Nor is it true that stimulant and aphrodisiac drugs were administered to the loyalist troops and that under the effect of those drugs mass rapes and other atrocities against the uprising people were then carried out.

The Libyan government was initially taken aback by the riots, insurrections and by a number of defections in the armed forces, especially in Cyrenaica. It was also forced to withdraw from some of its positions, but it never lost completely the control on the territory. Although some people detested Gaddafi, the majority of the Libyan people loved him and Libyans were still willing to support him. There is, indeed, a profound difference between hating a government to the point of an armed revolt against it, and belief that the time has come to turn the page, passing the baton to a new leadership.

A few insurgents do not make a revolution. Especially if they were hens scratching between jailbirds, disgruntled various types and foreigners. The militias who fought against the army were composed by Libyans but also and especially by foreigners, coming from the most disparate parts: Saudis, Qataris, Chechens, Jordanians and anyone else who was willing to fight for money or for love of war, holy or secular as it was.

This jumble of people and international pressure should have to be enough, according to plan, to force Gaddafi to escape and destroy his power system. Aerial bombardment? Maybe, but limited. Milosevic gave it up after two months and Libya is basically a desert.

The situation began, however, to change rapidly in favor of the government forces and among the Westerners began to spread the fear that their plan could fail, with all the consequences. It was proposed the creation of a no-fly zone that would have forced Gaddafi's air force to remain on the ground. For humanitarian purposes, of course. The resolution of the conflict would thus achieved only with clashes between opposing infantry forces.

Russia also agreed, in an excess of kindness and trust towards the Americans. And the March 19, 2011 resolution number 1973 was approved by the UN. A huge mistake for Russian diplomacy: NATO planes were not limited to fly in Libyan skies, forcing down those government aircraft, but took an active part in the fighting, taking the side of the rebels and taking them to victory.

My reasons might be,

Good service
Good food

Good location
Traffic free travel route
Good wine selection

You would run screaming thru the streets " OMG OMG OMG RealDave picks his restaurants based on how much wine he can drink. OMG OMG OMG"

The headline implied 40,000 quit the union because of Obamacare.

That is a lie. They are still in a union & Obamacare was not the primary reason.

Libya is destroyed, divided and corrupted. It is not the Country it was before the war. The rebellious militias have never been loose and fought against each other and against a partisan movement for liberation on which the Western media have drawn a veil of silence. The traitors, of which intentionally we do not report here the names because they offend those of loyalists, have proved themselves incapable of governing, as was widely expected. Who trusts in fact a traitor who does not represent anyone but himself? Who trusts a puppet when you see the ropes that hold him and who pulls them?

Gaddafi had no chance of escape. This Bedouin, who has held a family of quarrelsome people for forty years, loved his country, all of it. King Idris' Libya was underdeveloped, inhabited by starving people, mostly illiterate and under colonial rule. Gaddafi was able to instill a dream and make it real, despite its political mistakes.

He managed to give dignity to a family of people who unfortunately knew askance. But what Nation in the world does not live at times this situation? If the goal had been democracy and not oil and gold deposits in Libya, there would not be riots artfully prepared or there would not be a bombing campaign lasting eight months.

Gaddafi lived in remembrance and veneration of a great Libyan man, Omar al-Mukthar, which had opposed the fascist rule. As Omar al-Mukthar, even Gaddafi was killed by a traitor's hand. Ironically, even he who betrayed him was then eliminated, by his own principals.

So Gaddafi inevitably had to die in Libya, his native country: it was a matter of dignity. Escape would have meant denying his past and what he tried to accomplish. It would have meant betraying his people, his Libya.

TOKYO — The Japanese government announced Tuesday that it will spend $470 million on a subterranean ice wall and other steps in a desperate bid to stop leaks of radioactive water from the crippled Fukushima nuclear station after repeated failures by the plant's operator.
The decision is widely seen as an attempt to show that the nuclear accident won't be a safety concern just days before the International Olympic Committee chooses between Tokyo, Istanbul and Madrid as the host of the 2020 Olympics.
The Fukushima Dai-ichi plant has been leaking hundreds of tons of contaminated underground water into the sea since shortly after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami damaged the complex. Several leaks from tanks storing tainted water in recent weeks have heightened the sense of crisis that the plant's owner, Tokyo Electric Power Co., isn't able to contain the problem.

Short site of vision is obscuring what lays ahead, if this chemical attack goes without reprimand.
Allowing Syria to ignore their obligations to humanity by using,“out of prohibition.” lethal chemical weaponry, without reprimand, will send a negative message. Perforation of chemical aggression would be entertained by less than scrupulous organizations will arise and increase. A limited demonstration to suppress the use of chemical weapons is required.
Obama has demonstrated his ethical responsibilities in answering to conflicting issues of violence by corrupted organizations. Some accuse Obama of some tyrannical conspiracy and yet the facts do not support their accusations.
Yes I see a pattern; Is it conspiracy?
Capture of Osama without archaic torture tactics.{Mathematical algorithms} No invasion of Pakistan with hundreds of $Billions for the military industrialist.
Libya’s war, without one American solider dying in its entire operation and objective. Completed within months.
Obtains a water downed Health Care system for our nation in spite of the most dysfunctional congress in our nations history.
Returned economic stability in record time, from the brink of the abysses of a Great Depression. Faster economic recovery, than Clinton, Reagan and F.D.R.

Conservative republican senators have been, for the past 2 years, structuring their infrastructure to guard against a repeat of the embarrassing defeat of 2012 due to Tea ideologies. Unable to gain the seats to hold the Senate.
Senator Lindsey Graham of S.C. will need to win two votes by the voters to hold his seat. 1} against the {R} Tea candidates 2} against the democratic candidate.
A growing number of {R} candidates will be facing the same gauntlet as Lindsey. Moderate and traditionalist {R’s} will seek to persuade the voters not to vote for the extremist fanatics of their right wing. Tea Senators are under attack with conservative and traditionalist {R’s} seeking to dispel them from their party.
Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky {R-TEA} is presently sinking from his perch. Veteran senator Lamar Alexander of Tenn.{R-conservative} Is assailed by Ben Cunningham, president of the Nashville Tea Party.
Fissures and rifts will be illuminated within the republican party with their primaries results.
Have they learned their lesson and will they now cast out the Tea? Will they continue to lose more seats due to the taint of Tea? 2014 will expose their future outcomes and their ability to exhibit leadership. Dysfunctional Tea fanatics to over take the conservative only to lose in the general elections of 2016. Republicans future is at a cross road. Failure of the conservative {R} will result in the demise of their party for Decades to come.
Continued infighting within the {R’s} over core issues {Immigration and Financials} would continue to widen a chasm, splitting the party.
One example of the Tea was recently demonstrated in South Dakota and West Virginia where their candidates failed to expand their powers.
Senator McConnell realizes the dangers of his purity ideologies is failing and begins to back pedal. He once opposed Rand Paul’s austere budget measures he now proudly endorses his austerity measures and goes on to support Rand’s domestic Hemp production endeavors! Yet he voted against the violence against women bill and joined the 13 senators to vote against aid to Egypt.
State senator Lee Bright {R-Tea} S.C. Emphasizes that the traditional conservative republican, Mr. Graham, was too concerned with international affaires and too soft on gun rights, personal liberties and immigration. He declares he is doesn’t care if N.S.A. has his phone number, he will continue to fight for South Carolina to have its own currency and opposes Shariah law!
Mr. Bright could pose a problem for Lindsey Graham in his bid for reelection. After all it is South Carolina. Remember when; Lindsey was booed at the “Silver Elephant dinner” in 2006 and then gets a standing ovation in 2013? Such are the ways of South Carolina..
All in all this should be an interesting mid term election in 2014. Preliminary to the 2016 general elections.
Will the republicans have the leadership to govern their own party? They fail that, what chance do they have on the national governing levels? Slim to none..

ANTONY:
Blood and destruction shall be so in use
And dreadful objects so familiar
That mothers shall but smile when they behold
Their infants quarter'd with the hands of war;
All pity choked with custom of fell deeds:
And Caesar's spirit, ranging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
Cry 'Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war;
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.

Actually that is incorrect. The Tea Party was effectively sidelined in 2012 by a scandal that leads right up to the White House. The Tea party victories in 2010 so frightened Obumbler and his Chicago Mafia that he had his IRS thugs try to thwart the movement.

It appears all Tea Party's have no only survived but have received increased donations thanks to the IRS and Obumbler. 2014 will be just like 2010 with Dumbocrats running for the hills on the coattails of a failed Presidency.
