Clinton And Her “Safe Zones”

Today you will see many things that Clinton said during her day at the hearings……so I will not bore you with a rehash of her words from today…..But I wan to talk about something she has said in the past….

I admit it….I was not paying particular attention to the Dem debate of last week…..for me I was more interested in what Bernie was going to say than any other candidate…..that was wrong on my part….I should have paid better attention.

I recently printed out a transcript of the debate and read the comments and responses by all the candidates…..and I found something that needed me to write about….if only I had paid better attention……

Robert Naiman wrote about a response that Clinton and then Bernie gave about the situation in Syria and the flow of refugees……

CLINTON: … And, to — provide safe zones so that people are not going to have to be flooding out of Syria at the rate they are. And, I think it’s important too that the United States make it very clear to Putin that it’s not acceptable for him to be in Syria creating more chaos, bombing people on behalf of Assad, and we can’t do that if we don’t take more of a leadership position, which is what I’m advocating.

SANDERS: Well, let’s understand that when we talk about Syria, you’re talking about a quagmire in a quagmire. You’re talking about groups of people trying to overthrow Assad, other groups of people fighting ISIS. You’re talking about people who are fighting ISIS using their guns to overthrow Assad, and vice versa. I’m the former chairman of the Senate Veterans Committee, and in that capacity I learned a very powerful lesson about the cost of war, and I will do everything that I can to make sure that the United States does not get involved in another quagmire like we did in Iraq, the worst foreign policy blunder in the history of this country. We should be putting together a coalition of Arab countries who should be leading the effort. We should be supportive, but I do not support American ground troops in Syria.

CLINTON: …Well, nobody does. Nobody does, Senator Sanders.

I hate to be the one to point this out to Clinton…..but to provide “safe zones” will take American troops to keep the zones “safe”…..sorry but there is NO way to provide such areas without the use of troops…..

This is an exchange between McCain and a general at a hearing…….

The video of the exchange is here. The full video of the hearing is here.

MCCAIN: Would you recommend a no-fly zone in Syria?

AUSTIN: I would not recommend it at this point, sir.

MCCAIN: … Would you recommend telling — setting up a buffer zone in Syria where these refugees might…

AUSTIN: It will take a ground force to be able to protect the refugees if we do that, sir.

MCCAIN: Would you support a buffer zone which would then protect some of these refugees …?

AUSTIN: I don’t see the force available to be able to protect them currently, sir. So I would not recommend it at this point in time.

Naiman made a great observation……(Have you noticed how Republicans who demand that we “listen to our generals” when they ask for more troops don’t seem to be interested in listening to our generals when they say “that’s not going to work unless we send troops”?)

Clinton can say “No One Wants To Send In Troops”…..but her plan is only workable with the use of troops…..

Sadly We Have Our First Death

In the war against ISIS….first blood has been spilled……

An American soldier was killed and 70 hostages held by ISIS were freed in an overnight raid on an Iraq prison by US and Kurdish commandos, a Defense Department spokesman tells CBS News. Iraqi officials—who noted that the raid near the northern town of Hawija included a combination of airstrikes, US and Kurdish special-ops forces, and US choppers—say that some militants were captured as well, the New York Times reports. “They cut off roads and raided the place successfully,” the governor of the surrounding Kirkuk province tells the paper. “They were able to take people with them.” Two senior US military officials would only offer confirmation of the mission in general to the Times.

The Times notes the overnight mission is likely the first major US raid against ISIS since the home of Syrian Abu Sayyaf (rumored to be the ISIS leader given American hostage Kayla Mueller as a bride) was ambushed in May, turning up “a treasure trove” of intelligence. Hawija has been in the US’ sights as troops try to make headway in recouping ground from militants in both Syria and Iraq, especially in Ramadi and Baiji, per the paper. This is said to be the first confirmed raid by US commandos in Iraq, although some have been conducted in Syria.

I pray this will not become a commonplace occurrence…..

Give The People Something To Fear

I hate to quote a toad like this Nazi….but in this case he is so right it is scary……

To me it illustrates the power that propaganda can wield over the people and their attitudes…..

The idiots on the Right are masterfully using this technique……..Of course….NO one will admit it….but this is what is being done today by our media….pick a subject…..any subject……

BiBi, A Lying Racist Douche

By now most of my readers know that I think that Israel’s PM, Netanyahu, is a prick and will lie his ass off to get his way…….you will also notice that I do enjoy popping the balloon of morons that try to use history to make a point….especially when they are LYING!

Good old BiBi has lied about so many things but his best has been his prediction of the nuke possibility of Iran…..his predictions have been from 6 months to 5 years…..and he has been saying this in various forms for about 20 years…….so far he has been WRONG!

I thought I had heard all his bullshit after years of following his rantings…..but I was mistaken….you see recently he uttered one of the dumbest things a Jew has ever uttered……of course he had to bring up the Holocaust and a past leader of the Palestinian homeland……Here’s what Netanyahu said:

My grandfather came to this land in 1920 and he landed in Jaffa, and very shortly after he landed he went to the immigration office in Jaffa. And a few months later it was burned down by marauders. These attackers, Arab attackers, murdered several Jews, including our celebrated writer Brenner.

And this attack and other attacks on the Jewish community in 1920, 1921, 1929, were instigated by a call of the Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini, who was later sought for war crimes in the Nuremberg trials because he had a central role in fomenting the final solution. He flew to Berlin. Hitler didn’t want to exterminate the Jews at the time, he wanted to expel the Jews. And Haj Amin al-Husseini went to Hitler and said, “If you expel them, they’ll all come here.” “So what should I do with them?” he asked. He said, “Burn them.”

I mean this toad has lied for years but this goes a bit beyond the pail……does this have anything to do with the problems that BiBi and his lackeys are having with the Palestinians?

Let’s hear it again!

Adding fuel to the ever-present Israeli-Palestinian flame, Benjamin Netanyahu is now accusing a Palestinian of “inspiring the Holocaust.” While speaking to the World Zionist Congress about Palestinians’ alleged use of holy sites to commit violent acts against Jews, the Israeli PM said Hitler wanted to expel rather than exterminate the Jews in 1941. But the Palestinian grand mufti, Haj Amin al-Husseini, “went to Hitler and said, ‘If you expel them, they’ll all come (to Palestine),'” Netanyahu said, per the Guardian. He added when Hitler asked what he should do with them instead, the mufti said, “Burn them.” Netanyahu has since been hit with a barrage from the West Bank and beyond. Historians slam his comments as inaccurate—one goes as far as to call him a Holocaust denier, per the New York Times—and Israel’s opposition leader says they minimize the horrific event.

“It is a sad day in history when the leader of the Israeli government hates his neighbor so much so that he is willing to absolve the most notorious war criminal in history,” a Palestinian peace negotiator adds. “I didn’t mean to absolve Hitler of responsibility, but to show that the father of the Palestinian nation wanted to destroy Jews,” Netanyahu later clarified. He “was a war criminal and encouraged Hitler to exterminate European Jewry.” Though a few historians support his stance, most reject it, per the Guardian. Husseini was a supporter of Hitler and did meet with him, but only after the Final Solution began, says one. “You cannot say that it was the mufti who gave Hitler the idea to kill or burn Jews. It’s not true,” she says. Ten Israelis have been killed in Palestinian attacks over the last month, along with 46 Palestinians killed by Israeli fire.

After WW1 during the Balfour Declaration, the Arab population initially was pleased with the outcome….they thought that Jews returning to Palestine would give an economic boost to the region….

Onto the Mufti and his allegiance with Hitler……

The Mufti did meet Hitler, once, but their 95-minute conversation took place on 28 November 1941. Husseini used it to try to secure the Führer’s support for Arab independence, as historian Philip Mattar explains in his book The Mufti of Jerusalem.

Check out the date…..1941…..if my memory does not fail me….Hitler’s book, Mein Kampf, had been published for more than 10 years by this time…..

But do not take my word for it…..

I appreciate it when history is used to explain a present day situation….but I detest when mental midgets try to re-write history to suit their narrative…..some thing BiBi has been doing for decades.

I just wish that people would cease taking these people at their word…..he is lying to manipulate…….and at least one world leader stepped up to call BiBi on his racist BS……

Germany has been forced to clarify its role in the Holocaust after Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed a Palestinian convinced Hitler to kill Jews, Reuters reports. “All Germans know the history of the murderous race mania of the Nazis that led to the break with civilization that was the Holocaust,” a government spokesperson said Wednesday. “This is taught in German schools for good reason, it must never be forgotten. And I see no reason to change our view of history in any way. We know that responsibility for this crime against humanity is German and very much our own.” Netanyahu made his comments as he was preparing for a visit to Berlin.

Where is the rest of the world?

 

A historical act of war: The illegal overthrow of the Hawaiian Nation

Time for the history lesson you all dread…..but buck up and read on…….

We Americans all know that Hawaii is our 50th state…..but if you do not live within its borders….what do you actually know about our newest state?

We are taught about such evens as the Alamo or Valley Forge or the Gold Rush…..but what are we taught about Hawaii?  Basically, it is our 50th state…..period.

My guess is not much more than…… they have great beaches, an active volcano and grow pineapples……did I come close?

As usual with our history there is always so much more…… did you know……..

The truth is that each and every step along Hawaii’s path from sovereign and independent nation, to annexed territory, to state, was done in violation of laws and treaties then in effect, without regard to the wishes of the Hawaiian people. Many people, including President Grover Cleveland, opposed the annexation of Hawaii.

But in the end, simple greed and military interest overrode any concerns or moral right and legality. Hawaii’s legitimate government was toppled using threat of American military force. Hawaii was stolen from her people for the benefit of wealthy American plantation owners and military interests, and the justifications for the crime were invented after-the-fact………

I am always looking for something interesting in history to pass along to my readers….especially pertaining to the make-up of the US and the history that is involved in the making of this country.

I present a short history of the great state of Hawaii……

Faking the Terrorist Threat – The Unz Review

In the past 15 years there has been a wealth of terror threats against the US……and in all that time we have had nothing but Lone Wolf attacks…..in the past there have been hints that many of these threats were bogus…..given at a time when it was most advantageous…..it appears as using fear to justify.

Now we have Russia flexing its muscle in the Middle East…..and it is being billed as a threat to our national security…..but is it really that big of a threat?

This article covers these points and should be read……especially in an upcoming election year when foreign policy will most likely be at the forefront of the campaigns……information is how we make informed decisions when we vote…….of course that is assuming that one uses information and knowledge to vote…….sadly I have my doubts.
