The War The Pentagon Doesn´t Want
Washington Post, by Robert Scales

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 9/6/2013 6:59:43 AM

The tapes tell the tale. Go back and look at images of our nation’s most senior soldier, Gen. Martin Dempsey, and his body language during Tuesday’s Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearings on Syria. It’s pretty obvious that Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, doesn’t want this war. As Secretary of State John Kerry’s thundering voice and arm-waving redounded in rage against Bashar al-Assad’s atrocities, Dempsey was largely (and respectfully) silent. Dempsey’s unspoken words reflect the opinions of most serving military leaders. By no means do I profess to speak on behalf of all of our men and women in

Maybe Dempsey is afraid all those 110 lb females he wants in combat may get hurt.

Look at the photo of the gathering in the war room. GEN Dempsey is sitting as far away as possible from Hagel & Obama.

Wars have a way of taking on a life of their own. Especially in the Middle East.

If the US attacks Syria and Iran responds with attacks on US embassies in the region -war with Iran is a real possiblity.

And, with the large numbers of ´Persians´ living in the USA - a few are bound to go postal and launch attacks here in this country.

The typical liberal drivel posted as comments on this article are laugh out loud ridiculous. They are becoming human pretzels trying to explain how attacking Iraq was an impeachable offense on humanity but attacking Syria to provide political cover for Obama is A-Ok. It is almost (but not quite) painful to witness the complete humiliation of the Obama Koolaid squad.

Obama´s devotees support him personally, more than his policies or decisions. They have blind allegiance to him. Reason or logic will not penetrate their thick skulls because it is filled with Obama love. They don´t care if it starts WWIII, they will support him. That I can understand. I don´t like it and believe it is extremely dangerous, but I understand it. What I can´t wrap my brain around is the fact that Republicans support this insane idea. Obama is making a grave error that could spark a world war. Republicans should stand up and and make the case against this action because the vast majority of Americans don´t want it. However, that has not been a compelling enough reason for Republicans to act in the past. One thing is certain. Obama is playing with fire and we will all get burned.

I laughed out loud the other day while watching the hearing. Kerry was railing against something he was being questioned about, and was having a hard time making him point. He turned and said "Maybe Gen Dempsey would like to speak to the matter". The General turned on his Mike and said "no, I don´t believe I would". and shut off his Mike! He left Kerry stunned! Very Funny!

Democrats spend most of their time pretending to be peaceful, loving doves, until it is politically expedient to go to war. Then they are the most self-righteous, war drum-beating hawks. They caused the Civil War. Wilson ("he kept us out of war") involved us in WWI. FDR got us in WWII by doing nothing about Hitler or the Japanese. Truman sent our soldiers to Korea, then fired McArthur for actually wanting to win. JFK and LBJ involved us in Vietnam and the Dims then gave it to the Communists. BJ sent US soldiers to aid Muslims against Christians in Bosnia and Kosovo. Now Hussein seems to be doing his best to aid muslim radicals. The best thing we could do is let them kill as many of each other as possible, and let their "god" sort them out.

Dempsey has the look of a man who is slowly realizing the price a (once good) soldier pays when he trades integrity, character, honesty, and values for political fame and fortune.

Its a bitter taste for sure.

And isn’t it curious that the vociferous opponents of gassing children, also, under the euphemism of “pro-choice,” favor aborting them? Just wondering as well.
Oh and by the way, could it just be an optical illusion or could John Kerry have had “some work done?” Meow!

So where does Fauxbama go from here? Both Judge Napolitano and Noam Chomsky believe that attacking Syria would be a war crime.

If you read the UK newspapers you will find that the leading British military officers feel the same way about Syria as the leading US military officers do. They are all against participating in an Obama lead military operation in Syria. That´s one reason why the UK Parliament voted to keep the UK from going along with Obama and attacking Syria.

I have to disagree about a military coup. What we do need is voter ID with a valid Birth Certificate when you register. Twenty million illegal criminals can and do vote. In the inner cities they vote multiple times when not shooting each other.

I´m going to do something I have never done before.
I´m going to an anti war rally.
I am confident that many of us have had had the same experience that
Major General Scales has had
with active and retired members of the military.
FTA-" They are embarrassed to be associated
with the amateurism of the Obama administration’s
attempts to craft a plan
that makes strategic sense.
None of the White House staff has any experience
in war or understands it.
So far, at least, this path to war violates every principle of war, including the element of surprise,
achieving mass
and having a clearly defined and obtainable objective."
Obama has obviously not been affected
by the 1,901 flag draped coffins that have returned
to Dover AFB since he became Commander in Chief.
Make that 1,906-we´ve lost 5 more soldiers in combat in Afghanistan
the past 10 days.

Given that posters here are mentioning a "military coup" and discussing its merits
or perhaps lack thereof regarding regime change within the U.S., allow me to offer
some comments about a recall vote...

First, though, regarding Fraud Kerry...

May he never do Lurch in this town again.
His grade is... Epic FAIL.

Regarding Congress and O-Bomber´s Badministration...
We need a Constitutional Amendment...
For a citizen-sponsored RECALL Election for all national offices...

We know now the 2012 election results were a fraud!
Time for a complete RECALL Election for all House and Senate offices simultaneously.
And for the Presiduncy and Vice Presiduncy, of course... a national refer-end-dumb.

We can´t wait longer for Eastern-based Elitists in Gummint to do our work for us,
because they never will!
They´re too timid to impeach and convict.
They are too often part of the problem of incompetency themselves.

We need legal measures now...
to dump them all as we see fit by voting.
One of the Liberty Amendments or whatever you call them...
Must be a citizen-generated immediate vote of NO Confidence in the Gummint...
And a complete RECALL Election to rid ourselves of this pile of worthlessness...

Many are being exposed for the frauds they are.
We need the means to rid ourselves of this incompetent travesty of Gummint right now.
A National Refer-End-Dumb!
Buh-Bye, Dumb-O... and Company...

Given the speed of events and travel and communications in today´s world...
Perhaps a revised schedule of elections should be permanently instituted...
House up for re-election every November (yep, that´s every year... they campaign and fundraise nonstop anyway... let´s vote on them every year)...
Senate up for a vote every two or three or four years... maybe all seats simultaneously.

For Prez and Veep...
Perhaps one term, lasting five or six years at most...

We need to rid ourselves of these perpetual elites who rake our nation with impunity.

Regarding the terms for Prez and Veep...

If allowing two terms, maybe just two or three years each term, so we can get rid of them
far more quickly than we can now.

Eight years of overexposure through today´s Presstitutes is way too long for anyone.

You see how wise George Washington was to leave office while they were still begging
him for more... he set a valuable precedent as first president...
one of many precedents he rightly set.

We definitely need to support more veterans for public office. These lawyers, social science majors, and other left-leaning types, who have no experience or understanding of the military or national defense, are killing us.

Who else would call the Fort Hood killings ´´workplace violence,´´ or advocate trying terrorists and war criminals in civilian courts- at taxpayer expense!

The political left just doesn´t understand that some people are not going to like us. They may even hate us. They should, however, always respect us. How can any foreign people respect our government as it exists today?

I don´t advocate a coup just yet. Better to try Mark Levin´s path and a new party to advocate and advance it. However, should push come to shove, our men and women in uniform - military troops and civilian police - must remember that their first oath is to the Constitution.

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

The author of the Twilight of Abundance, David Archibald, sent an email a few days ago, saying “there is a whole new world coming.” Archibald, who’s an Australian, warns in his book that the world is running out of food, energy and security. Where he differs from Malthus, however, is in arguing that the shortages are the consequence of policy, rather than the inherent limitations of the universe. The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
