Slaughter in the Cities, Ineffectual
Mumbling in the White House

American Interest, by Walter Russell Mead

This is what a policy looks like when it dies and goes to hell. The FT reports that violence is ramping up in Syria, with Assad agents using devastating “barrel bombs” against rebel areas. More: According to the opposition Syrian National Council, 20,000 people have been killed in barrel-bomb campaigns since the start of the conflict in 2011. A Turkish official said about 2,000 had been killed since peace talks began in Geneva last month. The Damascus reg­ime has failed to offer an explanation for the bombing, but insists in its official media and during the Geneva talks that it is

I agree with Postor #2. I read the headline and thought this story was talking about Knockout games in American cities being perpetrated by the group that American Media dare not speak their name. Keep moving, folks. Nothing to see here. We have a lot more "success stories" to report that are occurring under our noble Dear Leader´s beneficent rule. We cannot afford to pause and cover every single one! LOL :-)

Obama is a failure. Everything he touches goes to Hades. Point to one policy, situation, decision that has been good for this country. Not content to stop there, he presses on to global incompetency. Those who support him are outright idiots who have sold their souls to a philosophy that brings nothing but destruction.

Do we really want Obama in charge of an operation in Syria? We have a weak anti-war activist in the WH and the world knows it. It is believed that he lacks resolve. Many enemies have seen this as a brief window of opportunity while America has its pants down.

This article is wa-a-ay to complimentary of Obama, the man child. Claiming he has two sides in his high brain: one Wilsonian and the other Jeffersonian. One part wants to set the world right and the other wants to keep the US neutral. Thus his problems in foreign policy. Nonsense! And what an insult to 2 presidents who knew how to lead. Our current POTUS is a self-centered, ego maniac suffering from either schizophrenia or multiple personality disorder. His delusions of grandeur have caused this entire mess. And not to sound mean but Syria is the libs problem. Where´s Code Pink? The Women in Black? Cindy Sheehan? They don´t care ... I don´t care.

Americans do not understand war as the WWII generation did. Whether you like Assad and his regime or not, the people under his rule face extermination by rebel forces. They cannot surrender and will do whatever they have to do to win, just as America used fire bombs and atomic bombs on civilians and wiped out entire cities in WWII. Assad’s forces will pound the rebels to dust along with whole cities if necessary to survive. We have done no less.

The article mentions barrel bombs which led to some internet searching. This stinks of a misinformation campaign to me. You have a distant shot of a helicopter, then Allahu Akbar, then a falling drum, then an overhead view of a city and finally an explosion. The next scene is of a little girl being passed to a loved one and being told she is dead. Or a pair of legs extending from the rubble (same legs by the way) and are told she died an hour later.

Is the Syrian force so far gone that they no longer fire weapons from helicopters and a forced to push out barrel bombs?

Should the US be supporting either side of this mess? Why?

Like other Ldotters above, I, too, thought the article was going to be about the out-of-control crime taking place in American cities such as Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, L.A, etc. While I wasn´t disappointed that the article didn´t touch on American cities and their crime waves, I was disgusted by Mead trying to equate Obama to Wilson (god forbid) and Thomas Jefferson. Wilson was a terrible President who refrained from acting against Germany in WWI until it was almost too late. If Wilson had acted against Germany in say 1915, perhaps there wouldn´t have been a WWII. Maybe Japan wouldn´t have concluded that America was a "paper tiger" and decided to attack Pearl Harbor.

Americans have made some really stupid decisions in electing Presidents. Washington, Jefferson, Adams (both), Madison, Monroe, Reagan, and George W. Bush were some of their better choices. Don´t condemn me for including Bush 43 - just consider what we could have gotten - Al Gore and John F. Kerry.

Assad killing off rebels is the best the US can expect from this--we have no good side to back. I am still not convinced that the rebels were not the ones using the gas. Obama making his red line statement is his biggest blunder in all of this, he is such an amateur.

Remember the 60´s when there was wide spread rioting in the streets over government policy?
This decade is MUCH worse and the government mush less responsive and yet all we do is write
on blogs, send tweets, and react one at a time.
Overall not too effective. There are SO many more of us than of them. I am waiting for the call to unite, organize on a country-wide scale,to make our changes to all of this. If now, when?

The important lesson from observing 0bama´s tenure, IMHO, is that he does NOT inspire nor motivate people to achieve positive results. His policies here and abroad divide peoples & thus result in failure to foster peace, productivity and prosperity. 0bama could have achieved positive steps toward securing respect for Life, Liberty and Justice for ALL but instead his ´selfie´ policies now reveal him to be a failed Pres.

Agreed with all Ldotters, the headline clearly suggested
death in Chicago, Detroit, democrat controlled cities.

But for informative, world wide, daily news of Islamic supremacism and almost uncountable violent deaths
in the backward, ancient rule, nations of the east, read ROBERT SPENCER´S "JIHAD WATCH", a daily aggregation of the reality of this ancient ideology that our own TV news actors are deathly afraid to touch.

The similarity between Marxist Leninist rules of Communism, and the strict guiding rules of the ideology of Islam, is too frightening for even a loudmouth like Bill O´Reilly to touch.

Sadly, the Dianes, Adams, Steves, and even the O´Reillys, are limited (or is it brainwashed? ) regarding
informing America of the absolute demands of the strictly obeyed Islamic ideology.

Hillary Clinton all but erased
from tragic story of Benghazi
Washington Times, by Rowan Scarborough    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/14/2014 5:55:34 AM     Post Reply
A huge wave of public testimony, reports and documents on what happened in Benghazi now floods Washington, and little of it focuses on the role of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton before, on, or after Sept. 11, 2012. Over the past 18 months, there have been at least seven public congressional hearings and three fact-finding reports on the terrorist attack. If not invisible, Mrs. Clinton is certainly portrayed as being only in the background during Benghazi, unaware of key events. In the early post-Benghazi days on Capitol Hill, Republicans tried to pry “what did she know and when did she know

LUDLOW, Mass. — Eric Lesser was shaking hands with diners in a Portuguese restaurant last week when he spotted the owner of Manny’s TV & Appliances. “Oh, I’ve got to get a picture,” Mr. Lesser eagerly said, draping his arm over Manny Rovithis, whose low-budget commercials have run for decades in Western Massachusetts. Mr. Lesser’s giddiness about meeting the local celebrity had not faded when he sat down for lunch. “Awesome,” he said. Although Mr. Lesser spent much of the last six years in the company of President Obama and Washington hotshots, now, as an earnest, hug-prone 29-year-old candidate for the Massachusetts

Scot Gillies has a good idea of the kind of horse people who will fit in at Gryffindor Farm, the small barn he helps manage in Lexington, Ky. So his advertisements for new boarders spell it out in detail: Owners must be "laid-back," "happy" and above all, "drama-free." Mr. Gillies, a marketing consultant by day and a horse owner himself, says that during his 14 years in the equestrian world, "I´ve seen the full range of drama that is associated with horse people."

WASHINGTON – The Westboro Baptist Church, an extremist organization known for its anti-gay activism, announced that it will picket the funerals of the three people killed in Sunday afternoon’s shooting attacks at two Kansas City Jewish sites. The church, which has famously picketed funerals of US military personnel and has protested against the American Jewish community, sent out a tweet shortly after the shooting saying, “Thank God for shootings at Overland Park KS jewish centers! Westboro to picket funerals. God did not passover.” The Topeka, Kansas-based group is not affiliated with any Baptist organization, and has a long history of anti-Semitic

A Secret Fight over Russia

The Obama administration has scheduled a deputies committee meeting this week—tentatively set for Tuesday—to resolve a bitter inter-agency dispute over a request from Russia with respect to the Open Skies program. Informed sources believe the White House is likely to side with the State Department, which wants to accommodate Russia, over the objections of the Obama administration´s Defense Department and intelligence agencies. The Open Skies treaty allows the United States and Russia to fly over each other´s territory with planes loaded with certain agreed-upon sensor packages, in order to ensure compliance with arms control agreements and to provide assurance against

It’s not spying, it’s policing. Good news for New Yorkers, who live, work and play in what remains the world’s top terror target: New profiling rules the Justice Department is drafting will reportedly let the Federal Bureau of Investigation continue the critical work of using nationality to map neighborhoods, recruit informants and look for foreign agents. In other words, they’ll let the often-cautious FBI engage in intelligent and legitimate policing to prevent attacks against innocent Americans. As reported by The New York Times, the feds’ decision, arrived at after years of exhaustive legal and other reviews, is a tacit endorsement of nearly identical

Judging by the horse he gave Defense Secretary Chuckie Hagel a couple of days ago, Mongolian Defense Minister Dashdemberel must be a very diligent student of the defense budget that Congress is now trying to craft. The horse, of course, is a gelding. When the president announced his proposed budget and Hagel went to Congress to state the party line, I wrote that several indispensable weapon systems — the U-2 reconnaissance aircraft, the A-10 Warthog attack aircraft, and half of the Navy’s 22 cruisers among them — would be retired. Under the president’s plan, military pay raises would be capped at

White House senior adviser John Podesta is running against the clock. Time is winding on Podesta’s objective, which is to make sure President Obama put points on the board in the final three years of his second term through either legislation or executive action. With Obama and the White House flailing in late 2013, Podesta returned to the West Wing in January as part of an Obama reboot. A little more than three months later, the former chief of staff for President Clinton gets good marks from Democrats and fellow West Wingers for helping to improve the White House’s strategy and communications.

Dartmouth College students recently staged an overnight sit-in the office of their president Philip Hanlon. They had over seventy demands. Apparently, they grew out of their alleged suffering at the hands of “racist, classist, sexist, heterosexist, trans-homophobic, xenophobic, and ablest structures.” Translating into English, the students elaborated, “Our bodies are already on the line, in danger, and under attack” — suggesting conditions similar to the teen-aged Marines who stormed Fallujah in November 2004, or perhaps the iron-workers who tip-toe on girders 1,000 feet above Manhattan, or an acquaintance of mine whose work clothes reveal that he pumps out quite messy rural

On Friday the president used the long-awaited resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to again claim victory for his namesake health law. “She got it fixed, got the job done,” Obama said. Right. Sorry, there is plenty of more bad news ahead. It’s not called SebeliusCare, and she wasn’t to blame for most of its problems. The horrors were mostly baked into the law, with some made worse by the president’s dishonest hard sell to get unsuspecting Americans to sign up. Obama claimed Friday that 7.5 million people have enrolled in exchange coverage. In fact, perhaps 20 percent haven’t

Last week Zbigniew Brzezinski, joined by five other foreign-policy experts from the past, issued an open letter entitled “Stand Firm, John Kerry,” calling for “clarity” on “the critical moral and political issues” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The letter castigated Israeli settlements and proposed “halting the diplomatic process” to “help stop this activity.” At “Pressure Points,” Elliott Abrams dismantled the letter, noting that, among other things, it ignored history. As it happens, tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of one of the more important items of history the Brzezinski group ignored: the April 14, 2004 letter from President George W. Bush to Prime

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice!

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right.

As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it.

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won his battle to graze cows on public land after a week-long stand off with federal agents. The Bureau of Land Management today said it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia members today continuing to gather in Nevada in a confrontation with federal agents. BLM Director Neil Kornze said: ´Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of
