Lily and Realdave decides who DIES Western-Backed Rebels Bring Death and Destruction to Historic Syrian Town of Maaloula
Western-backed rebel forces have returned to the historic Syrian town of Maaloula, destroying parts of it and killing scores of its inhabitants, according to media reports.

Rami Abdul-Rahman, the head of the Observatory for Human Rights, a London-based pro-opposition NGO, said that 1,500 fighters of the al-Qaeda linked Al-Nusra Front and the Qalamon Liberation Front stormed the village after fierce fighting with the regular Syrian army on Sunday. Last Wednesday the Islamists had attacked Maaloula for the first time but were driven out by the Syrian army after it received reinforcements from the capital Damascus.

Now the Islamists seem to have taken over the historic town that has two of the oldest Christian monasteries in Syria and is one of the few places in the world where Aramaic, the biblical language of Jesus, is still spoken.

“The army pulled back to the outskirts of the village and both [rebel groups] are in total control of Maaloula now,” Abdel-Raman said. A resident, reached by phone, confirmed that rebel forces were now in control.“The rebels are inside Maaloula, all of Maaloula. The government troops have pulled out of Maalula,” the resident said, who requested anonymity out of fear of repercussions by the Islamists.

Maaloula

Other residents quoted in the Lebanese news outlet The Daily Starreported scenes of a massacre after the rebels moved into the village.“They shot and killed people. I heard gunshots and then I saw three bodies lying in the middle of a street in the old quarters of the village,” the resident said.“So many people fled the village for safety.” Maaloula “is now a ghost town,” he added.

Sources, anonymous for security reasons, told the Rome-based Catholic outletAsiaNews that “the Islamist insurgents are breaking into village homes. Yesterday they killed three people and took six young Greek-Catholic Christians prisoners. Bodies have been left in the streets as a warning to the population. Many families are locked in their homes and cannot even escape. Nobody knows their conditions

Yes! And let us not forget McCains famous line "Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran"
Iranian President Hassan Rohani has said his country is ready to strike a deal with world powers over its nuclear program, but that time is limited.
Rohani said Iran is "ready for the win-win game," and suggested fresh talks could take place when he travels to New York later this month to address the UN General Assembly.

here's what the #1 Muslim hater says....

Jennifer Rubin's Syria Strategy: Bomb Iran

Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin has come up with a novel and ingenious strategy for responding to the Syrian government's use of chemical weapons against its own citizens: attack Iran. Frustrated with what she sees as the slow march to U.S. military action in the Middle East, Rubin posted to her blog this morning the draft congressional resolution she'd like to see in response to the Syria situation:

THEREFORE be it resolved:

1. The president of the United States shall be authorized to use all necessary force against Iran in the event it does not halt all enrichment and allow complete access to all facilities to verify the discontinuation and destruction of its nuclear weapons facilities;

2. It shall be the policy of the United States to support free peoples in Iran seeking to change the regime and obtain essential human rights and a normalized relationship with the West;

3. It shall be the policy of the United States to aid and assist Syrians, including the Syrian Free Army, seeking to live in peace with their neighbors and respecting the individual rights of the Syrian people so as to prevent a victory by the Assad regime and/or al-Qaeda forces;

3.[sic] Russia is an inappropriate party to negotiate on behalf of or verify the compliance of WMD disarmament by its ally Syria or by the government of Iran; and

4.[sic] The president shall be authorized to use all means necessary to achieve the president's stated purposes, to wit, enforcing sufficient consequences for use of WMDs, preventing the risk of future use by the Assad regime or Hezbollah and degrading the Assad regime's ability to use, deliver and command the use of WMDs.

For those of you quick to point out that Iran and Syria are, in fact, not the same place, and that attacking Iranian nuclear facilities would serve to stifle any hope for political moderation within Iran, you're forgetting that Jennifer Rubin is a clear-eyed foreign policy thinker who is respected by her colleagues and never gets anything wrong.

The housing market here performed very well for the past year, but is now tapering off. The market is heavily oriented toward all-cash purchases by investors. First-time buyers with large mortgages are non-existent.
We have a lot of that going on here. We have a lot of older lower priced homes being sold and torn down and two story $250,000 homes being built. Property values going up every time they rebuild another one. This being a military area people come and go but the houses use to not be empty that long.

The President's threat of war; his commitment to striking back at Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has brought the Syrian and the Russian presidents to the negotiating table. Al-Assad has now admitted that he has chemical weapons and he has agreed to never use them again. Mind you, no missiles have been fired -- and yet this is the solution we sought.
We have won.
More, this was a bipartisan effort for peace.
Forget the Tea Party fanatics. They would burn their own house down if they could.
But the people who are serious about governing worked together to bring about this peaceful solution. Props should go to Speaker John Boehner and Senator John McCain -- both put their country ahead of their own short-term political lives. They took the heat; they joined the president in condemning chemical weapons -- and they all brought about a resolution to this crisis."

So, if American bi-partisanship and international cooperation can work to get a military dictator to surrender his chemical weapons to international United Nations control, then why is it so hard for Republicans to admit working with President Obama on immigration reform, making Obamacare better, jobs creation, and climate change at home is much easier then causing crises over the national debt, whining about U S Defense cuts that even the Pentagon approves of in a world where the U S is no longer at war in Iraq or Afghanistan,?

They screamed against a strike against Syria; now that it may not be necessary; they are screaming still. What are they screaming about? Do they want war or do they not? They don't know. Now the fat junkie Limbaugh is implying that the US used chemical weapons; and the resident dittoheads love that stuff. What stupid, stupid people, it's mind blowing.

Prices up 18%, homes selling fast here. There's a surplus and Gov Scott is asking what he should do with it. Hopefully he will reduce property taxes to encourage even more buying.

Fringe conservative radio host Alex Jones said this week that an effort to avert a U.S. attack on Syria with diplomacy was actually a United Nations plot for the extinction of the human race, which would be replaced by “globalists” like President Barack Obama who would become cyborgs by using “life-extension technologies.”

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/09/11/alex-jo...

i know i probably shouldn't put that out there because one of these nutjobs will grab hold of it and try to beat us to death with it just like they're doing with every other excuse they can think of for becoming peace loving hippies.

put down that bong you conservative hippies and act like you want every Muslim in the world to be dead just like you did last week!
