“"In the next few days and completely against the will of the American people, hundreds of AIPAC activists will raid the American Congress to push for a war. Nothing new in that but still, one question bothers me: How many of these pro-war Jews have sent their own sons and daughters to serve in the American military?"

“It's time Israel took care of itself. If AIPAC wants a war to defend Israel, let them fight it.”
“"Officials say that some 250 Jewish leaders and AIPAC activists will storm the halls on Capitol Hill beginning next week to persuade lawmakers that Congress must adopt the resolution or risk emboldening Iran’s efforts to build a nuclear weapon. They are expected to lobby virtually every member of Congress, arguing that “barbarism” by the Assad regime cannot be tolerated, and that failing to act would “send a message” to Tehran that the U.S. won’t stand up to hostile countries’ efforts to develop weapons of mass destruction, according to a source with the group"
“Thank you for revealing God's plan for missile and bombing attacks on Syria. Why doesn't
the bearded one just send a plague of locusts or split the earth asunder or have a great flood? Does he have investments in Boeing and General Dynamics?”
“What could be wrong with "surgical strikes" against Syria?
They worked so well in Iraq:
The Amiriyah shelter bombing was an aerial attack that killed more than 408 civilians on 13 February 1991 during the Persian Gulf War, when an air-raid shelter ("Public Shelter No. 25"), also referred to as the Al Firdos C3 bunker by the U.S. military, in the Amiriyah neighborhood of Baghdad, Iraq, was destroyed by the U.S. Air Force with two laser-guided "smart bombs".”
“Where is the link to an official statement from the EU claiming that Assad is guilty of the attack? The last official statement I read was by the EU President urging that the issue be resolved by the UN.”
“The official statement on the European Union website:
"While respecting the recent calls for action, he [ EU President Van Rompuy] stressed that the Syrian crisis should be addressed through the UN process. "There is no military solution to the Syrian conflict. Only a political solution can end the terrible bloodshed, grave violations of human rights and far-reaching destruction of Syria".
........- UN inspectors in Iraq were reporting that they were unable to find WMDs. - UN inspectors in Syria can confirm WMD's have been used""
No one has denied that chemical weapons were used. That is not even a relevant question. The basic question is who used them? Where is the evidence that Kerry and Obama claim to possess? How much "evidence" was provided by Mossad and Saudi intelligence? And how much of the intelligence was fabricated?”
“"Evidence? We don't need no stinkin' evidence". It's undeniable, it's too late, it's irreversible,
Curveball told us, Colin Powell has a power point presentation on it, the IDF and Saudis told us,
Prince Bandar himself assured us, the one-man "Syrian Observatory on Human Rights assured us.
“One of the oldest tricks: the neocon media call on one of their anonymous neocon pals in government to keep the war drums beating.
The cable news networks to get their rent-a-generals out of mothballs. Just write 'Syria" instead of "Iraq" on the script on their teleprompters. Where are Clifford May and Frank Gaffney when they are needed?”

“Even when the most liberal President ever is in office you're still trying to blame the neocons? Get real.”

“from a liberal admin to a liberal newspaper. please, wake up and stop being such a water-carrying donk.”
“I don't defend her execution, however there are some problems with accepting
the story at face value.
1. The BBC has a history of propagandizing against Iran.
2. According to the Wikipedia article on the executed woman/girl:
a. documents about her age were not given to the court.
b. The Supreme Court of Iran ordered her release
c. After the execution of Atefeh, Iranian media reported that Judge Rezai
and several militia members, including Captain Zabihi and Captain Molai,
were arrested by the Intelligence Ministry.
d. The associate producer of the documentary is the same one who was involved in the Neda propaganda operation.
Blaming the government of Iran for the reactionary behaviour of a provincial judge
would be like blaming the US judicial system for the life sentence recently given a woman in Elko, Nevada for having a 13-year old boy touch her breast.”
