US Sponsored Genocide Against Iraq 1990-2012. Killed 3.3 Million, Including 750,000 Children
The slaughter fits the classic definition of Genocide Convention Article II of,“Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part,” says Francis Boyle, professor of international law at the University of Illinois, Champaign, and who in 1991 filed a class-action complaint with the UN against President George H.W. Bush.
The U.S. and U.K.“obstinately insisted” that their sanctions remain in place until after the “illegal” Gulf War II aggression perpetrated by President George W. Bush and UK’s Tony Blair in March, 2003,“not with a view to easing the over decade-long suffering of the Iraqi people and children” but “to better facilitate the U.S./U.K. unsupervised looting and plundering of the Iraqi economy and oil fields in violation of the international laws of war as well as to the grave detriment of the Iraqi people,” Boyle said.

When Kerry started rambling on about how it wasn't really a war,war;
back tracked on "no boots on the ground" by stating he wouldn't take it off the table; and refused to commit to any resolution it was the pinnacle of Kerry being rationale, consistent and fully committed.

Fox News Dementia: Media Is Not As Hard On Obama/Syria As They Were On Bush/Iraq

Recall that it was the New York Times that employed Judith Miller (now with Fox News) who was instrumental in providing cover for the Bush administration’s pro-war agenda. She was a trusty vessel for the dissemination of propaganda from Bush’s war hawks. She was the reporter most responsible for validating false intelligence on Saddam Hussein’s weapons capabilities and ambitions.

If you watched MSNBC at the time, you might recall that the top rated program was hosted by talk show legend Phil Donahue. He was a prominent skeptic of the looming U.S. invasion of Iraq. Consequently, the management of MSNBC viewed him as a “difficult public face for NBC in a time of war.” His show was canceled in February of 2003, shortly before the invasion.

The media presentation of dissent was nearly non-existent. Despite the fact that millions of Americans took to the streets to protest the war, the media declined to cover the demonstrations. Contrast that with the way they slobbered over a few malcontents in a tiny and unpopular political sect known as the Tea Party, and a handful of their hollering rubes at town hall meetings ranting about their opposition to health care.

The characterization of the media as going soft on Obama with regard to Syria is also delusional in the extreme. As expected, Fox News has been harshly critical of Obama no matter what he does. Last week they hammered him for taking a unilateral stance and failing to consult Congress on a possible reprisal for Syria’s chemical weapons deployment. This week they are bashing him for wasting time with congressional consultations and weakening the presidency by seeking them. What’s more, Obama has come in for criticism by pundits on the left like Rachel Maddow and Thom Hartmann and even Jon Stewart.

The right-wing directive to refrain from criticizing a president during international hostilities is apparently only in effect when a Republican is in the White House. Critics of Bush were often called traitors when they expressed their opposition to his policies. But outraged Tea-publicans are now encouraged to disparage the Commander-in-Chief in the most vile terms. Today it is the President who is called a traitor by right-wing protesters who fancy themselves as patriots.

In light of these facts, it is incomprehensible how Crowley can take to the Fox News channel and offer a twisted version of history wherein Obama is getting a pass and Bush suffered outrageous slings and arrows. And what is even more disturbing is that so many Fox News viewers are too dimwitted to separate the Fox fallacy from reality.

That's not as offensive as what that rodeo clown did.

And now: Rebels have attacked a Christian village in the war torn country of Syria, beheading priests and brutally killing others. Not surprisingly, the rebels have ties to al Qaeda.

The rebels launched the assault on the ancient Christian village of Maaloula _ which is on a UNESCO list of tentative world heritage sites _ on Wednesday after an al-Nusra fighter blew himself up at a regime checkpoint at the entrance to the mountain village. The village, about 40 miles (60 kilometers) northeast of Damascus, is home to about 2,000 residents, some of whom still speak a version of Aramaic, the ancient language of biblical times believed to have been spoken by Jesus.

Heavy clashes between President Bashar Assad's troops and Nusra Front fighters persisted in surrounding mountains Thursday, according to the Observatory, which collects information from a network of anti-regime activists.

Speaking by phone from a convent in the village, a nun told The Associated Press that the rebels left a mountaintop hotel Thursday after capturing it a day earlier. The nun said the frightened residents expect the Islamic militants to return to the Safir hotel and resume shelling of the community below.

"It's their home now," the nun said. She spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.
Al Qaeda led rebel force groups have also reportedly vowed to continue their attacks on Christians as soon as the United States "liberates" the country from it's President Bashir al-Assad.

Answer to your question: Because with each passing day it becomes clearer that those were the good old days.

How many more years of ineptness, blame and the buck never stops here can the United States handle? Or, in Obama's case: how many rounds of golf or campaign stops or vacations between now and the next President?

Once Again President Dithers Shows He's No Ronald Reagan

John Kerry made some impressive arguments in favor of military action.

He said the evidence is undeniable that Assad’s military forces used chemical weapons to kill nearly 1,500 men, women and children in Damascus.

He said that if the United States does not act to punish Assad it will send the wrong message to every rogue regime in the world.

And at one point, cranking up the rhetoric, Kerry said,“This is not the time for armchair isolationism. This is not the time to be spectators to slaughter.”

At about this point in the proceedings, I began to wonder if Kerry’s talking points had been written by George W. Bush.

When I closed my eyes, I swear I heard the voices of Colin Powell, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld explaining why the United States had a moral duty to invade Iraq and take out Saddam Hussein.

Kerry’s running argument with Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky about whether the Obama administration was going to go to war even if Congress didn’t give its permission brought me back to 2013 -- and reminded me how horribly President Obama’s indecisiveness has botched Syria.

Let’s say everything Kerry said the other day about Assad being responsible for the gas attack and the importance of the civilized world punishing him is true.

Let’s say President Obama is not playing some cynical political game with Congress, or trying to win points with the public, and that he knows every single claim Kerry made is absolutely true.

Then what is the president waiting for? Why in God’s holy name hasn’t Obama already kicked Assad’s butt?

Two weeks after Assad gassed his own people and crossed the president’s imaginary red line, we’re still debating in Congress and worrying if Vladimir Putin will get mad at us if we beat Russia’s favorite Middle Eastern pet.

Obama should have done the same thing in Syria that President Ronald Reagan did in Libya when he had to wise-up Gadhafi about the cost of waging his terrorism campaign against the West.

Reagan acted the way the president of the United States should act -- DECISIVELY.

Reagna made no calls to the United Nations asking for permission to bomb Libya.

Reagan orchestrated no debates in Congress.

Reagan acted with resolve and ordered bombs to be dropped, not coalitions to be formed or opinion polls to be taken.

Long before Assad had a chance to launch a poison gas attack, our cut-rate commander-in-chief should have ordered a few cruise missiles fired at Assad’s head to get his full attention -- or better yet, kill him.

It’s too late for such presidential decisiveness now.

President Obama needed to show Assad that he -- and the United States -- meant business a long time ago.

But his administration dithered for more than two years, and 100,000 Syrians died in a civil war that now has so many rebel factions no one can tell the good guys from the bad.

Sen. Lindsey Graham was right when he said this week that it’s already too late for the United States to come up with a Syria strategy. He said our best options already are in our rear-view mirror.

At this point, all we can do is drop some leaflets on Damascus telling the Syrians how sorry we are that we have a president who still can’t get his act together.

Even Jimmy Carter was better than this ditherer.

Good morning Sonic!

The civil war in Syria has been devastating, generating a death toll fast approaching 100,000, while uprooting millions of civilians from their homes.

But as the US and Russia signed an unprecedented accord on Wednesday in search of a political solution to an increasingly intractable conflict, its underlying causes in a fatal convergence of energy, climate and economic factors remain little understood.

But the US, Israel and other external powers are hardly honest brokers. Behind the facade of humanitarian concern, familiar interests are at stake. Three months ago, Iraq gave the greenlight for the signing of a framework agreement for construction of pipelines to transport natural gas from Iran's South Pars field - which it shares with Qatar - across Iraq, to Syria.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the pipelines was signed in July last year - just as Syria's civil war was spreading to Damascus and Aleppo - but the negotiations go back further to 2010. The pipeline, which could be extended to Lebanon and Europe, would potentially solidify Iran's position as a formidable global player.

The Iran-Iraq-Syria pipeline plan is a "direct slap in the face" to Qatar's plans for a countervailing pipeline running from Qatar's North field, contiguous with Iran's South Pars field, through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and on to Turkey, also with a view to supply European markets.

The difference is that the pipeline would bypass Russia.

Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey have received covert support from Washington in the funneling of arms to the most virulent Islamist elements of the rebel movement, while Russia and Iran have supplied arms to Assad.
