How did this happen? Iraq, Syria,
Gaza and Libya all in flames

CNN, by Holly Yan

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 7/16/2014 9:57:32 AM

Each day, they live in fear. Sometimes it´s the fear of rockets dropping from the sky. Sometimes it´s violent fundamentalists taking over their cities. Sometimes it´s the barrel bombs stuffed with TNT and nails. Exactly what horror they face depends on which border they live within. Syria, Iraq, Gaza, Israel and Libya. Each with its unique crisis, but all now unified in a heightened sense of anxiety as years of conflict come to a head. "I would argue," U.S. Sen. John McCain said this week, "that given conditions in the Middle East, this might be more dangerous than any time

Comments:
This is a nice little overview of what´s going on, but for some reason the the question in the headline is not addressed at all......but we already know the answer.

The globalists are taking the next step in the war on carbon dioxide. Scientists have linked this gas to the feeding of healthy plants and the blossoming of flowers, so the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the United Nations‘ global warming alarmist arm, last week let slip a plan for getting rid of it when the U.N. summit on the climate convenes on Sept. 23.

George Mason III, 42, faces murder charges after his Friday night rampage in Brooksville, Fla. A Florida man killed three relatives Friday and tried to gun down a fourth when a passing truck ran over the murderer, halting his rampage, police said. George Mason III, 42, is clinging to life after being struck in the middle of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in the town of Brooksville as he chased after his half-brother, Gabriel Taylor, 33. Taylor was shot several times, including once in the head, and is in critical condition, police said.

The maniac charged with shooting a woman and a man with a pellet gun in Central Park blamed his friends for those attacks and two others over a 10-day span. Edward Fall, 20, accused a friend named Hollywood of shooting the two joggers in Central Park earlier this month, according to his confession. He fingered another friend, Antwan Ross, 21, as the man who shot two people — and a dog — in Midtown West with pellets on Thursday, cops said. Fall said Hollywood fired the pistol at a 34-year-old man on Aug. 17 and at a 36-year-old woman on

WASHINGTON — The legalization of recreational marijuana in two states — Colorado and Washington — and medical marijuana in more than 20 others has raised concern that there will be more drivers stoned behind the wheel. What´s not clear is whether that will translate into an increase in fatal crashes. ___ WHAT WE KNOW While marijuana users can perform simple tasks well while they are high, brain imaging has shown that they have to use more of their brain to do so. Their reaction times are slower, peripheral vision is decreased and multitasking impeded. As a result, when sudden or surprising things occur

FERGUSON, Mo. — Police officers in Ferguson, Mo., have begun wearing body cameras after weeks of unrest about the shooting death of an unarmed black man by a white officer and sharply differing accounts of the incident, officials said yesterday. Michael Brown, 18, was shot multiple times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, sparking nearly three weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and drawing attention to race relations in the United States. Law enforcement and witnesses gave differing accounts of what transpired before Brown was shot, with police saying the man had struggled with the officer.

After several mercifully Benghazi-free months, the 2012 attack on the diplomatic compound in Libya is about to be thrust back into the spotlight around its September 11 anniversary. The special House committee investigating Benghazi is finally expected to begin its work, in earnest, with its first hearing the week Congress returns from August recess. Meanwhile, two books promising explosive new allegations about the terror attack will hit shelves in September, and Fox News plans to air a new, one-hour documentary on the attack this week, featuring exclusive interviews with Americans who fought in the onslaught.

Richard Clarke Calls Obama

Washington - President Obama is "wrong" to downplay the dangers facing the United States, longtime counterterrorism official and ABC News contributor Richard Clarke said in response to the president´s attempts to calm concern over the escalating threat from ISIS and turmoil in the Middle East. Obama told an audience at a Democratic fundraiser in New York Friday that the "world has always been messy" but added, "I promise you things are much less dangerous now than they were 20 years ago, 25 years ago or 30 years ago." Clarke, appearing Sunday on This Week, said simply, "I think he´s wrong." "We're much more capable of defending

Sheriff’s deputies in Georgia say they foiled a bizarre smuggling scheme in which two jailed inmates used their dead grandmother’s casket to help them smuggle drugs and other contraband back into the jail. Jailers escorted Henry Ison Rouse, 27, and Nekoase Antwan Vinson, 30, in handcuffs and leg restraints to the Bentley Brothers funeral home Thursday evening to bid farewell to their grandmother. Emma Mae Faulk of Macon died last Sunday at age 74 and the prisoners were allowed a private viewing. “One of them stayed in there (with the casket) a good amount of time,” the Rev. Roland Stroud told the Macon Telegraph.

Deep Racial Divide Remains Under Obama

America’s racial divide not only remains but has deepened in some ways over the last six years, despite hopes President Obama’s election would usher in a “post-racial” America. The shooting of an unarmed black man and resulting rioting in Ferguson, Missouri, is only the latest racial flashpoint in Obama’s tenure, which has featured tense, racially-charged debates over issues like the arrest of a black Harvard professor and Obama friend in front of his house and the resulting “beer summit,” the expansion of voter ID laws, and the killing of Trayvon Martin. “We’re nowhere near a post-racial society,” says Michael Eric Dyson,

Muslim leaders have issued a fatwa condemning Islamic extremist group ISIS, and have said that British jihadis are "betraying their own societies" by getting involved in the conflicts in Iraq and Syria. The fatwa represents the British Muslim community´s strongest denunciation of ISIS yet, calling the extremist group "heretical" and "an oppressive and tyrannical group." According to The Sunday Times, the fatwa, authored by Sheik Usama Hasan, a former imam from east London, and supported by six senior Islamic scholars across the country, says it is "religiously prohibited (haram) to support or join" ISIS.

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious. Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out. There’s just no way to explain the president’s decision to

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August. U.S. warplanes struck in Iraq for the first time in years, as U.S. diplomats struggled to establish a new government in Baghdad. Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended
