Play That Funky Fear Card

Opinion from the desk of the Editor:

 

There are two people with the Ebola virus and suddenly we have a global pandemic……and meanwhile there is a war being waged in the Middle East….the MSM is so damn transparent….this is to give the public something else to worry about…I mean how many worthless questions can be asked about 2 patients?  At least they, the MSM, is not fixated on the nude pics of celebs….for now.

The most effective way to gain the support of the public is the use of the fear card…..it worked in 1991….it work in 2003 and it is working now with the newest flexing of American international muscle….and to focus away from a war is by giving them another fear to obsess over…..enter Ebola.

Me?  I will stick with hitting people over the head about a war we did not need…….I am sure there are plenty of other blogs that will be obsessed over the virus if that is the direction you want to direct your fear….feel free to go there……For now I will be focused on an issue that will create more victims than the virus…..

Just when the need to strike into Syria the administration handed us, the people, a new more lethal bad guy….the Khorsan Group as it is called by our super dubber intel community…..they are poised to attack our country and rain down destruction……and as predicted….BAM!  The American people jumped at the need to eliminate these guys……

I among others started doubting the existence of this group…….if they are part of AQ then why give them another designation? My writings were joined by others that called into the intel community for more info…..since their word is virtually worthless we demand more concrete info than just their word………

But as usual, we doubters are not worth the worry……..and the FBI joined into the full court press…….

In comments on today’s “60 Minutes” program, FBI Director James Comey warned that the Khorasan group is “serious people, bent of destruction” who plan to attack the US “very, very soon.”

Comey insisted the US had to act as if the Khorasan strike was “coming tomorrow,” but conceded that they don’t know whether they plan to attack “tomorrow or three weeks or three months from now.”

There you have it a definitive answer to our calls for clarification……..

the Khorasan strike was “coming tomorrow,” but conceded that they don’t know whether they plan to attack “tomorrow or three weeks or three months from now.”  (Or ever….my words)

So basically, this group could hit is now or never……but it is imminent……after years of “success” against AQ we now have AQ that is threatening….again.  So which is it?  Did we do damage to AQ?  Or is it still as strong as it ever was?

A fear card is a tried and true form of propaganda……..give the people something to fear and they will follow.

The American people need to educate themselves and STOP fearing a maybe……

And then there is the Congress……..are they part of this massive propaganda effort?  Do we trust these people to make the right decision or are they just making a monetary decision?

 

 

Why Do Americans Hate Beheadings But Love Drone Killings? | Coleen Rowley

The beheadings committed by ISIS of Americans and Brits brought the US and UK into a full fledged full court press for revenge……how dare they kill innocents in the name of some religious ramblings……but yet we Americans show a lack of concern for other civilians…..

Are Americans the only people that count in this world?

The Fake Terror Threat Used To Justify Bombing Syria – The Intercept

Thanx to past deals the US has engaged in….I was suspicious when a “new” terror group popped up in the news conferences…..

I have been searching the internet for a confirmation….so far I got diddly…and I mean diddly squat!

It is disturbing to realize that few people bother to read such presses that I post for their information…….these are the first people to bitch and moan when they learn something they do not agree with…all the while the info was there and they were just too ‘busy’ to bother reading the information….it might take them away from Candy Crush for a couple of minutes…..

“This ISIS Coalition Is Impressive”

Opinion from the desk of the Editor:

 

I keep hearing pundits slap the prez on the back for putting together this “Coalition” of nations in the fight against ISIS…..some have even called it impressive.  To that I say……..WTF?

If true the coalition has about 40 or 50 nations that have signed on for this new fight…..signed on to do what?

A couple of days ago we started the long anticipated war in Syria….and with those strikes 5 nations joined in……Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE and Bahrain and since then NOTHING!

It appears that this was the token attack and their part is through……so what will the remaining 35-45 nations have to do to prove their worth?

Obama said in a speech to the UN that “this fight is not America’s alone”…..so far about 90% of it is on America’s hands.

I am still waiting for the impressive part.

Correction:  After I wrote this draft news came out that the latest attacks on ISIS the UAE and Saudis were involved in the action…….good news that someone else is helping with the heavy lifting….but I am still not very impressed……

How about you?

 

 

 

 

ISIS Coalition: Who Are Those Brave Souls?

We have heard all the rhetoric about the partners we now have as part of the coalition against ISIS…….and recently the fight has begun in Syria…….and the US was joined by 5 Arab countries in these attacks……which from the US point of view is a good thing….but what are their stories?

Jordan

Nervous about overt involvement in US-led effort but keen to put its vaunted intelligence capabilities and special forces at the disposal of coalition. Has allowed discreet CIA training for Syrian rebels. Worries about domestic backlash from Sunni extremists. Hosting millions of Syrian refugees and desperate for western financial help to cope with the burden.

Saudi Arabia

Frightened by Isis and stung by international criticism that it created it – a misreading of its enthusiastic backing for anti-Assad fighters. Now advertising a domestic crackdown on extremists and funding for jihadis in Syria and Iraq. Has been asked to use media and religious establishment for anti-radicalisation message. Has agreed to US request to train Syrian rebels and is reportedly prepared to use air power against Isis. Worries about strengthening Assad and Iran.

UAE

The most assertive power in the Gulf, obsessed by the threat from Islamists ranging from the Muslim Brotherhood to al-Qaida and Isis and happy to blur the huge differences between them. Believed to have offered to use its air force to attack Isis. Recently bombed Islamist targets in Libya from bases in Egypt without admitting to it. Wants wider action against jihadis in Yemen and north Africa.

Qatar

Fabulously wealthy emirate that has backed the Muslim Brotherhood across the Arab world, especially in Egypt, and used al-Jazeera TV as a cheerleader for the changes of the Arab spring. Like the Saudis, backed anti-Assad Islamist rebels in Syria to the point of recklessness and is now being attacked for supporting Isis. It insists that it does not, but it does have links to Jabhat al-Nusra, an extremist Syrian group. Signs that it is lowering its profile under Gulf and western pressure. Has carried out humanitarian relief work.

Bahrain

To host a conference on how to cut off funding to Isis.  Bahrain is the mystery partner…..why are they involved in this opening salvo?  They have basically no military…..what was their part?

These five ‘partners’ have done what was asked of them (possibly demanded to retain any aid) …..is their participation done now or will they be a constant participant?

According to Kerry there are many more ‘partners’….these just stepped up to the task, at least for now…….but what about tomorrow and the days and years ahead…….will they keep stepping?
