Rumsfeld calls Obama´s
Syria strategy ´mindless´

USA Today, by Aamer Madhani

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 8/29/2013 9:46:10 AM

Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld says he´s confounded by how the Obama administration has gone about explaining why a strike is in the USA´s national interest. "There really hasn´t been any indication from the administration as to what our national interest is with respect to this particular situation," Rumsfeld, secretary of defense when the U.S. attacked Iran in 2003, said Wednesday evening on the Fox Business Network. The most important issues in the region, Rumsfeld said, are "Iran´s nuclear program and the relationship between Iran and Syria — the [Bashar] Assad regime — with respect to funding terrorists that go around killing

Comments:
Mindless is as mindless does.

Just like Bill Clinton, 0bama views the military as an instrument for influencing his own political needs, rather than it´s intended purpose of national security.

Likely, Obama see a strike against Syria as somehow aiding the Muslims. It´s probably part of his Muslim faith.

Like #2 says, one wonders what Zero is up to, calling it ´ineptitude´.

IMO it is far more insidious. If the First Muslim knocks Assad out of power and muslim radicals take over, it will be the third time that Obumbles has deposed a leader who at least talks to the USA and replaced that guy with a cabal of USA-hating fanatics. That is not ´ineptitude´; nobody is that stupid. More likely it is a plan, a plan to leave as many America-hating governments in place as is possible in the days left to the worst administration ever.

Make no mistake; Obama hates the USA as much as any cave-dwelling fanatic in the Middle East (or any Ivy-league college professor). Zero is far from being the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he is not stupid. And he, or his handlers, have a plan.

"The idea of demystifying for the enemy what you´re going to do is mindless," Rumsfeld said. "I can´t imagine what they´re thinking."
Slowly but surely the people that the Dems and Obama demonized in the past are resurrecting, and they´re verbally demolishing Obama and his ilk.

A strike on Syria is so stupid for America that I cannot think but that it is a ruse by Obama and his muslim brotherhood friends to provide cover for the destruction of Israel. Rumsfield is correct the Iranian nuclear program is the compelling issue. And supporting the Egyptian Army against our enemies, the muslim brotherhood.

If the rebels did launch that gas attack, what´s going to happen if Obama strikes Assad? There will be more gas attacks after which the rebels will say Assad is doing it in spite, hit him again!

Yeah it´s a pretty stupid useful idiot kind of thing to jump in here and be used even if it is by your MusBros buddies.

Obama´s mind is a purely political organ. Like those who vote for him, all other actions are governed by his enteric nervous system, normally controlling peristalsis of the gut.

Iran has signed a deal to sell Iraq arms and ammunition worth £117 million in a move that would break a UN embargo on weapons sales by Tehran. The agreement was reached at the end of November, documents showed, just weeks after Iraq’s prime minister Nouri al-Maliki returned from Washington, where he lobbied the Obama administration for extra weapons to fight al-Qaeda-linked militants.

WASHINGTON — A new study reveals that nearly 33,000 jobs have been impacted due to the Affordable Care Act’s medical device excise tax. The report comes from the Advanced Medical Technology Association following an online survey of member companies last year. “According to the report, the tax has led to employment reductions of approximately 14,000 industry workers and foregone hiring of 19,000 workers,” the study stated. “The total job impact of the tax on industry employment was approximately 33,000.” Stephen J.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A former and possibly future first daughter came to Kansas City on Monday to launch an effort to honor women. Chelsea Clinton spoke to an enthusiastic crowd at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, sharing her passion for efforts that help boost women and girls. "How far have women come, and how far do we have to go?" she said. She told the audience that those questions are less philosophical than practical. She said she buries herself in the world of the Clinton Foundation to make sure she's doing her part. Another reason she was in Kansas City is to help establish the Starr Women's Hall of Fame,

Global Warming ‘Hiatus’ Caused By
Volcanoes’ ‘Cooling Effect,’ Study Says
Eruptions Slow Global Temperature Rise
International Business Times, by Philip Ross    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 2/24/2014 6:49:23 PM     Post Reply
Since 1998, the average rate of Earth’s rising global surface temperature has relaxed, much to the chagrin of climate scientists whose climate-model predictions told a different story. Now, researchers say they’ve found the cause of Earth’s global warming “hiatus.” According to a new study, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, volcanoes are the reason the average rate of warming dropped from .31 degrees Fahrenheit per decade between 1970 and 1998 to .072 degrees Fahrenheit per decade between 1998 and 2012. This “muted surface warming” was the result of a series of 17 small volcanic eruptions, beginning in 2000, that spewed

We´ve paid plenty of attention here at KCET to the problems caused for desert tortoises when their habitat is replaced with renewable energy facilities. But now one scientist is saying that big solar facilities in the Mojave could seal the desert tortoise´s fate in a way you might not expect. According to Barry Sinervo, an evolutionary biologist at the University of California Santa Cruz, current solar projects in the California desert intended to slow global warming, including two approved just last week by the Interior Department, could actually make the desert too hot for tortoises to survive past the end of

DETROIT -- In a fiery speech Sunday delivered to 18,000 at Joe Louis Arena, Minister Louis Farrakhan blasted the judicial systems in the U.S. as being biased against African Americans, calling upon the community to set up their own courts.

Jeb Bush concedes his last name could be a problem if he decides to run for president. The former Florida governor, who is weighing whether to seek the White House in 2016, told the Long Island Association that he understands being a Bush is “an issue for sure,” according to CNN. The last-name issue is also one that Hillary Rodham Clinton will have to face if she runs for president again, Bush says. Bush’s comments came as he recounted to the business group on Monday the story of how he sat next to a man on an airplane who talked

CAMBRIDGE – Cambridge police say the man wanted for sucker punching at least three people over the weekend is not part of a disturbing national trend known as the ‘knockout game.’ The series of unprovoked attacks happened in broad daylight Saturday afternoon between Massachusetts Avenue and Trowbridge Street. In this first incident, according to a Cambridge police report, a man told officers he was walking towards Central Square when the suspect walked “directly towards him.” “He stepped to his left and the suspect mirrored that move. He stepped to his right and the suspect moved into his path once again.

The Blair Papers which the media initially covered up and then diverted attention from, were quite revealing when it came to Hillary’s attitude toward not only her husband’s sexual misconduct, but even those of Republicans like Bob Packwood. (snip)Hillary Clinton is pathetic, makes constant excuses for Bill Clinton, blames herself and blames the women that her husband goes after.

Despite Obama administration claims that this year’s harsh winter is due to global warming, winters have have been getting colder in the past two decades, according to government climate data.

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race. But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids. The National Enquirer wrote in 2012 that Clinton had brain cancer, something a spokesman dismissed then as “absolute

The “greatest buried treasure ever unearthed in the United States” is about to be hit by the tax collector. According to Kathleen Pender, a columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle, the couple who found in cans buried on their property more than 1,400 rare gold coins worth more than $10 million will probably owe close to half of that sum in federal and state income tax, whether or not they sell the coins.

Kennedy — who had faced up to a year in jail if convicted — hugged both her lawyers as the verdict was read, and then began clapping after the jurors left the courtroom.

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West. "Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing," Obama declared Friday

Benghazi: Former CIA acting Director Mike Morell might be recalled for testimony to determine if he misled Congress and doctored the White House response to a terrorist attack to ensure President Obama´s re-election. The administration´s tangled web of Benghazi lies might be unraveling some more. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., has told Fox News that Morell, a former deputy director and twice acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, will likely be recalled to testify. The recall comes after new charges surfaced that Morell misled Congress about what he knew regarding the 2012 Benghazi attack and when he knew it.

SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine — Heightened Russian military activity in Crimea on Friday prompted a stern warning from President Obama and a deepening sense of crisis among the leaders of the new Ukrainian government in Kiev. U.S. officials said Russian troops had entered Crimea, and Obama told reporters Friday evening that he was “deeply concerned by reports of military movements” and that there “will be costs for any military intervention.” Earlier in the day, the new Ukrainian government said that hundreds of soldiers in green camouflage, without insignia but carrying military-style automatic rifles, had taken over two airports in Crimea.
