Barack Obama, our next President

It's common sense - something which progressive liberals are trying desperately to kill off once and for all.

In the eyes of progressives, it's necessary to use military force for humanitarian reasons when it involves WMDs killing a few hundred innocents in Syria but it's called war crimes when it involves WMDs killing 5000 innocents in Iraq.

That makes perfect sense to a progressive liberal like yourself, doesn't it?

You progressive liberals put your own selves between that same old rock and a hard place when you couldn't scream loud enough, "Bush lied!!" and "Bush is a war criminal!!" for saving Iraqis from Saddam's crimes against humanity but expect everyone and the rest of the world to pat Obama on the back when his only concern is saving face.

Seriously?

Even Democrats are divided over this decision. Rightly so.

Sadam depleted Iraq's oil? Really. At the time of the invasion, Iraq was a top 5 in oil reserves & still is.
Do you know anything real?
You do know that Sadam used the poison gas in 1988 not after he invaded Kuwait, right?
I have some further news, it was Desert Storm that dealt with Sadam's invasion. Not Bush Jr's Iraq war.
The US did not invade Libya.
You have so much incorrect in your post. Are you really this GD dumb?
Bush went to war on suspected WMDs & this supposed nuclear program. You defend that.
We know Assad has WMDs & he just used them. According to you in regards to Iraq war justification, we should be invading Syria.
I thought I told you sit down the dunce corner and sthu when you have no clue what you're whawahwahwhining about- yesterday "Dihmfk".

Now do it-and read this while you're there.

The Kuwait Business

Tensions between Iraq and Kuwait began to increase already in 1989, when the regime in Baghdad issued a number of statements towards Western powers, its Arab neighbours, and Israel. Most of Iraqi threats were targeting Kuwait.

Iraqis have had at least five reasons for their behaviour towards the smaller neighbour: Iraq could not repay about $80 billion that had been borrowed to finance the war with Iran. While, arguably, this war was in Kuwaiti and Saudi interests, Kuwait decided to not forgive Iraq’s $65 billion debt, thus providing economic and emotional justification for an Iraqi attack. Kuwaitis were incredibly rich and have had huge investments abroad: access to this wealth could resolve Iraq’s financial problems. The third reason was alleged Kuwaiti oil drilling in the Rumaylah oilfield, which lay in disputed border territory, and the fourth was Kuwaiti overproduction of oil. Gulf revenues were depressed as a result of an oil glut on the spot market in the late 1980s, forcing Iraq to threaten with the use of force as retribution for Kuwaiti overproduction and underpricing....

Now...

Do you better under stand the actual CONCEPT of rogue (saddam) FAILED STATE HOODS(and the result of HIS OWN DICtatorship)?

Once you get even a HINT of an idea of such-maybe we'll show you some "affects" of such. A perfect example of is now: LIBYA...with Syria looming on the horizen.

But now however, should we have to step foot where we really shouldn't be AGAIN (Libya-FAILED FOREIGN POLICY) at this point...I hope to the almighty blue skies, that some of OUR NSA types, have plenty of intel on just exactly where and what al qeada et al, in all their frothing, may have access too.
And that THEY may experience that of what THEY DUMPED on the U.S. some 12 years ago now.

Dirtbag, anarchial, stone age thug terrorists.

And, no, we didn't do anything after the massacre of 5000 Kurds using biological weapons. Neither did the UN or the rest of the world much to our humanitarianism disgrace.

But the world changed after 9/11, and we are still the #1 enemy of the enemy.

Bush made it perfectly clear that anyone who supported the enemy was our enemy.

Hillary Clinton made it perfectly clear Saddam supported our enemy.

In Syria, our enemies are killing each other off. How is it possible then any liberal can justify our intervention in Syria and not in Iraq?

That was in 2010. Anything more recent? Since the loophole was found in the ACA that allowed Obama to exempt them this past month?
Last Tuesday, legislation was introduced to reinstate the requirement that Congress go back on the ObamaCare exchanges, but I can't find any confirmation this has happened.
So if you can provide a recent source, it'd be helpful.
For one thing Carol, no legislation of any kind was introduced because Congress wasn't even in session.
Not only are you a damned liar but a spectacularly inept one as well. Congress always was in compliance with the affordable care act nitwit. The law requires large employers, and the federal government is a doubt a very large employer, to provide health insurance for their employees. Congress was doing exactly that through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Plan. As a matter of fact the insurance exchanges set up under the ACA were patterned after the FEHBP menu offered to all federal employees. Chuck Grassley decided to try to throw a wrench into the works by introducing legislation that would force members of Congress and their staff to purchase insurance from an exchange. The Democrats said "sure, why not?" So starting in 2014 members of Congress and their staff, including my son, will purchase coverage through an exchange. The Federal government will however continue to contribute to the cost of the insurance.
So Carol your statement that there was some kind of "loop hole" that exempted Congress from provisions of the ACA is just another one of your lies. Congress was never exempt, they were always in compliance.
Give up the lying Carol, you're just no good at it.

It's not even about really that. That's just ANOTHER excuse to dragggggggggg the U.S. in where it doesn't belong.

Only THIS time, maybe the PTB will see it all for what it is, and if the insistances keep up that we intervene- then I hope we lob the heck out of whatever we can into oblivion-and LEAVE....as in..

Absolutely NO NATION rebuilding.

Maybe THEN Hezbollah, Hamas, al qeada etc will learn how to act like CIVILIZED people, rather than lob and bomb barbaric THUGS.

The 3500 to 5000 (best estimate) Kurds died in 1989 during the Reagan era by weapons or at the least the chemical ingredients provided by the USA.

The world did not learn of the Halabja attacks in real time__most American's had no clue about Halabja until Bush began pushing for war against Iraq.

Well, I did find this, RealDave.
Aug. 7, 2013: The Office of Personnel Management issued a proposed rule on Aug. 7 explaining that members of Congress and applicable congressional staff will be required to purchase health insurance coverage through the exchanges created by the law.
However, according to the proposed rule, the federal government, as the employer, will still be able to make a contribution to health insurance premiums as it currently does. The contribution will be no greater than that now offered to members and their staffs under the FEHB program, and members and their staffs will not be eligible for premium tax credits made available to other persons purchasing health insurance through the exchanges.
http://www.factcheck.org/2013/05/congress-and...
So what does that mean? "The federal government will still be able to make a contribution to health insurance premiums as it currently does" but it "will not be greater than what they now offer"?
It means Carol that you just proved yourself to be a liar.

We hear nothing but absolute silence.
The same silence we heard about Benghazi, the IRS, and the DOJ confiscating citizens' private information.
WASHINGTON, Sept 1 (Reuters)- The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Nimitz and other ships in its strike group are heading west toward the Red Sea to help support a limited U.S. strike on Syria, if needed, defense officials said on Sunday.

The Nimitz carrier strike group, which includes four destroyers and a cruiser, has no specific orders to move to the eastern Mediterranean at this point, but is moving west in the Arabian Sea so it can do so if asked. It was not immediately clear when the ships would enter the Red Sea, but they had not arrived by Sunday evening, said one official.

he Nimitz carrier group had been in the Indian Ocean, supporting U.S. operations in Afghanistan, but was due to sail east around Asia to return to its home port in Everett, Washington, after being relieved in recent days by another aircraft carrier, the USS Harry S. Truman....

Unholy Alliance: The Federal Reserve and the Treasury

The (Banksters) Federal Reserve and the Treasury are running a scam that funnels freshly-printed money from the Fed into the Treasury, using Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae as the pipeline. Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae were taken over by the government and put into conservatorship in the 2008 bailout. Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae are companies that bundle mortgages and then sell them to investors. At the end of 2012, the Federal Reserve committed to spending $40 billion per month on Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae mortgage backed securities, creating an artificial market.

This system is troubling for the following reasons:

•Unchecked money-printing (quantitative easing) causes massive inflation

•As the Federal Reserve buys more mortgages on people's homes, it could eventually own the majority of the real estate market through mortgage purchases, and become America's landlord

•Real wealth (land ownership/mortgages) is being transferred into bankers' hands in exchange for paper fiat money created from nothing

•A new housing boom has been created that will end in a bust


The Treasury is using the $40 billion/month paychecks to bridge the federal debt and make Obama look good.

Shareholders in Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae are suing the US government for bailing out and taking possession of the companies in 2008. The shareholders are angry that the Treasury is pocketing all of the "profits" that Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae are generating. But the profits are an illusion as the Federal Reserve is propping up the companies.

The Treasury received a $95 billion payment, record "profits" from Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae in April, however, none of the money was applied to the principal of the bailout debt estimated at $317 billion.

This scam was planned years ago when the Federal Reserve lowered interest rates to an irresistible level and subprime loans were made to people who did not qualify for them, creating the real estate bubble and burst. Then, the US government stepped in an took possession of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae after using taxpayer money to bail them out. Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae guaranteed half of the nation's mortgages worth $5 trillion and Wall Street pressured Congress to step in and save them.

The bottom line is that the Fed merely is using this method (among others) to create money out of nothing and hand it over to the government, its trustworthy partner-in-crime. That's why Congress will never do anything to offend the Fed. They could not continue their plunder without them.
