Why we’ve been at war,
11 years and counting

MSNBC, by Chris Hayes

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/3/2013 4:30:54 PM

Thursday’s Senate confirmation hearing for Secretary of Defense nominee Chuck Hagel was an omnidirectionally embarrassing debacle for everyone involved. First there were the Senate Republicans who seethed with such theatrical contempt for Hagel and his ideas you would have thought the president had nominated Noam Chomsky for the post (who, incidentally wouldn’t be my first choice to head the Pentagon but who I’d take over Donald Rumsfeld in a heartbeat). Republican senator after Republican senator threw questions at Hagel that even by the debased standards of a nominating hearing

Comments:
New knee pads may have been issued for the LSM for 0bama´s second term. Chris thinks he´s funny being disrespectful to Donald Rumsfeld, who kept US safe for eight years. [With Africa, the Middle East and Asia ready to blow with Al Qaeda in a bad way, I don´t now]. We are at war still, because unlike France in Mali recently, our Congress [dRATS] since Korea want to level the playing field of our God-given Military [technological] superiority by man-killing rules of engagement that the other side uses against US. [And horrific torture, if they capture US].

Noam Chomsky is a good parallel for Hagel, only this Obama tool Hayes is too stupid to see that.

This Chris Hayes guy hasn´t grasped that the Radical elements in Islam are waging war on the world, not just the United States. The goal of the Radical Islamists is world domination by any and all means possible. Chris Hayes´ insistance that the U.S. should make this a short war means he lacks fundamental knowledge of the real world.

Chris Hayes is the definition of girly-man. Try watching this elitist clown for more than five minutes. The classic Manhattan "intellectual" who either doesn´t own a car or is loaded, and wants to raise the price of gas to 7 bucks a gallon on poor people to stop global warming.

Hagel demonstrated that he is an incompetent fool [and now so has Hayes]. The Senate must now decide if they are willing for us to have that fool as SecDef.

At least Rumsfield wouldn´t have let those Americans in Benghazi be purposely murdered to fit some political agenda. He would have wiped out all those jihadists pronto.

Militants Kill Dozens of Mourners

Islamabad, Pakistan - The living were honoring the dead on both sides of the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan on Thursday when militant bombers struck, killing at least 44 people in two attacks that coincided with one of the holiest days on the Muslim calendar. (Snip) At the eastern end of the border, in the Afghan province of Nangarhar, a bomb exploded at a graveyard where people had gathered to pay their respects to a slain relative. Fourteen women and children from the same family were killed. Reporters in Quetta described scenes of chaos and devastation after the attack on the police funeral.

Vienna - A U.S. institute tracking North Korea’s nuclear weapons program says recent satellite photos show Pyongyang is doubling the size of its uranium enrichment plant, jibing with the country’s announced plans to expand technology that can be used both to create energy and the core of nuclear weapons. (Snip) In an accompanying note, ISIS said the photos of the Nyongbyon nuclear complex show construction under way to “effectively double” the size of the enrichment hall. That, said ISIS, would allow North Korea to also double the number of centrifuges now enriching uranium.

   

 



 
Barack Obama:
Trayvon Martin wasn´t perfect

President Barack Obama discussed Edward Snowden, the health care law, Hillary Clinton and Russia during a Tuesday visit to "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno." But Obama´s comments about the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin had special local interest. George Zimmerman was acquitted last month of murder in the teen´s death in Sanford. Some Americans have criticized Obama previously for commenting on the issue, but Leno said that the president had spoken eloquently and from the heart about Trayvon´s death. "I think all of us were troubled by what happened," Obama told Leno.

Anyone who regularly uses social networks like Twitter, YouTube or Reddit may have had the unfortunately common experience of having to deal with trolls, those wonderful human beings who take pleasure from harassing and upsetting others. (Snip) I wasn´t planning to write about the experience, but it concerns me that trolling has become such a prevalent aspect of social networking. When you are told over and over again by strangers that you are useless at your job, that you are worthless as a human being, that you´re ugly, it´s no surprise that both teenagers and adults alike have resorted to

Syria biggest threat to US security: CIA

The war in Syria poses the greatest threat to US security because of the risk of the government falling and the country becoming a weapons-rich haven for al-Qaeda, a CIA official says. (Snip) Morell said there were now more foreign fighters flowing into Syria each month to take up arms with al-Qaeda-affiliated groups than there were going to Iraq to fight with al-Qaeda at the height of the war there. The Syrian government´s weapons "are going to be up for grabs and up for sale" as they were in Libya when Moamer Kadhafi fell, he added. "It's probably the most important issue in the world today,"

Instant breast cancer test will

Currently, women diagnosed with with early stage invasive breast cancer undergo a biopsy of their lymph nodes during surgery to remove tumours in the breast. They have to wait up to three weeks for the result, and if further disease is found, they have go undergo a second operation. The new test means that surgeons can find out if cancer has spread during the initial surgery - and if they find it, they can remove it at the same time. (Snip) The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has recommended the test - the RD-100i OSNA system produced by Sysmex UK - for women with early

A Russian television channel accidentally interrupted its evening news show with a doom-laden report of evils committed by Russian President Vladimir Putin, apparently slipped on air by a disgruntled employee. (Snip) It would be unthinkable for Russian state television to air a report critical of Putin. The planted news item went on to link Putin to the 2006 murder of journalist and Kremlin critic Anna Politkovskaya and attack corruption that had reached "unimaginable heights". It launched into the terrorist attacks at the beginning of Putin´s presidency, saying they raised his approval rating,

Amman & Doha - Saudi Arabia has offered Russia economic incentives including a major arms deal and a pledge not to challenge Russian gas sales if Moscow scales back support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Middle East sources and Western diplomats said on Wednesday. (Snip) Syrian opposition sources close to Saudi Arabia said Prince Bandar offered to buy up to $15 billion of Russian weapons as well as ensuring that Gulf gas would not threaten Russia´s position as a main gas supplier to Europe. In return, Saudi Arabia wanted Moscow to ease its strong support of Assad and

Nidal Hasan delayed justice,

If justice were administered by popular vote, Army Maj. Nidal Hasan would have disappeared into a maximum-security hole a long time ago. He might already be dead. He might have been executed by now for his undisputed role in the murders of 13 people and the injuries of 32 more in the Fort Hood shooting rampage four years ago. If regular Joes like me and you got to decide what seems reasonable and fair, Hasan would have been forced a long time ago to shave off his holy-man beard, quit drawing a paycheck from the U.S. government and put a sock in that “soldier for Allah” business.

They´re back! The isolationist poltergeists that forever haunt the Republican Party. Or so we´re told. In July, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) had a set-to over American foreign policy. Christie clumsily denounced "this strain of libertarianism that´s going through parties right now and making big headlines I think is a very dangerous thought." It was clumsy in its garbled syntax but also in its ill-considered shot at "libertarianism." What he meant to say, I think, was "isolationist," and that is the term a host of commentators on the left and right are using to describe Paul and his

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie holds a narrow lead among Republicans for the party’s 2016 presidential nomination, but even more GOP voters say he’s the candidate they least want to see nominated. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that Christie earns 21% support when Republican voters are asked whom they would vote for if the party’s primary in their state were held today. Florida Senator Marco Rubio runs a close second with 18% of the GOP vote, followed by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush at 16% and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul with 15% of the vote.

Barack Obama delivered one gaffe after another in his August 6 interview with Jay Leno, but the networks that usually mock every mistake or slip of the tongue made by Republicans ignored the President´s verbal mishaps. ABC´s Good Morning America, CBS´s This Morning and NBC´s Today show, on Wednesday morning, all bypassed the chance to criticize Obama for: downplaying the threat of terrorism; falsely claiming Vladimir Putin once ran the KGB; placing the Atlantic coast cities of Savannah, Charleston and Jacksonville on the Gulf of Mexico; confusing the Winter Olympics with the Summer Olympics.

WASHINGTON — U.S. officials insisted Tuesday that extraordinary security measures for nearly two dozen diplomatic posts were to thwart an “immediate, specific threat,” a claim questioned by counterterrorism experts, who note that the alert covers an incongruous set of nations from the Middle East to an island off the southern coast of Africa. Analysts don’t dispute the Obama administration’s narrative that it’s gleaned intelligence on a plot involving al Qaida’s most active affiliate, the Yemen-based Arabian Peninsula branch. That would explain why most U.S. posts in the Persian Gulf are on lockdown, including the U.

Critics of the president are convinced that Barack Obama will do lasting damage to the U.S. I doubt it. Obama came to power in the third year of large Democratic congressional majorities. In his first referendum, he lost the House and he may soon lose the Senate; in other words, there followed a somewhat normal reaction against a majority party. Obama’s popularity rating is well below 50%, despite an obsequious media and a brilliantly negative billion-dollar campaign that long ago turned Mitt Romney into a veritable elevator-using, equestrian-marrying, canine-hating monster. In the second term, there is little

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney jumped into the debate over the GOP’s future Tuesday night, warning congressional Republicans against forcing a government shutdown in their quest to stop President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. Romney addressed more than 200 donors on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee at a fundraiser for the New Hampshire Republican Party, staged just four miles from the vacation home where he has spent much of the summer with his family. The event was closed to the media, but his office released his prepared remarks.

Ending a war is a good thing. Killing civilians a bad thing. Deliberately targeting civilians is murder, and is never morally licit, even in pursuit of a good thing such as ending a war. The tens of thousands of Japanese non-combatants we killed 68 years ago this week with two nuclear bombs were not “collateral damage” of military strikes. They were the intended targets. We hoped that mass murder would bring the Japanese emperor to surrender. It worked, and American and Japanese soldiers’ lives were probably saved by it —

The U.S. State Department issued a global alert about the terrorist threat allegedly posed by Al-Qaeda in Yemen. The USA announced the closure of its missions in the Middle East and Africa, and their example was followed by France, Britain, and Germany. However, this was only an attempt to justify the activities of the National Security Agency.Last Saturday, right after alerting of the terror threat civilians and BOLO complex ("be on the lookout") that includes law enforcement and federal officials, President Barack Obama went to play golf, and then celebrated his birthday at the presidential retreat at Camp David.

Over the last week, there has been a lot of buzz about a supposed CIA angle to the Benghazi story. Specifically, it has been alleged that a substantial number of CIA employees were on the ground in Benghazi, carrying out a mission that involved rounding up Libyan weapons and transferring them to rebels in Syria. Further, it has been reported that the CIA has leaned on its employees not to cooperate with Congressional investigations or the media, and it has been suggested that the CIA’s role in Benghazi may be related to the al Qaeda

In a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia´s harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow´s stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.

In a move some claim is tantamount to social engineering, the Department of Housing and Urban Development is imposing a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America’s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory. The policy is called, "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing." It will require HUD to gather data on segregation and discrimination in every single neighborhood and try to remedy it.
