Interesting video on the RT

Interesting video from RT with a pundit i don't know talking about - why libya, and not other dictators doing similar things as gedhafi - check it out


Operation Odyssey Dawn...

The Odyssey is one of two major ancient Greek epic poems. It mainly centers around the Greek hero Odysseus.

Sounds like somebody has a thing for Greek poems...and "Operation Odyssey DAWN" implies this is only the beginning of what they have planned.

Expect more pages to be written in this Greek poem...

These people make me sick. War Pigs one and all.

Ironically or coincidentally enough

This is similar to the new mission in Iraq, titled Operation New Dawn.

Now we attack a country with nothing more than U.N. approval???

Where is the outrage that the president did not go to Congress at all?

Even the rotted Bush allowed Congress to vote on his resolution to attack Iraq.

Congress dropped the ball then but at least they were allowed to vote yes or no..

In this case we the people were bypassed altogether.

Congress' puppy plays without a leash... !

Few in congress are fresh or ripe, but the majority appear to be rotten oath breakers.

They have in essence 'not' consulted with themselves, in that they allow their puppy underling to run rag tag over the world, without his reins, just as unrestrained as they, in disavowing their oaths!

Bottom line, Congress is derelict in their duty at least twice over! Failing to keep their oaths, and failing to restrain and arrest the usurper in the white house, who likewise daily breaks loose of any reins that might have existed!

More egregious than this can only be the fact that Congress brought the usurper to the park to play in the first place!

Incremental Tryanny...

They are masters at their craft.

How long till this blowback hits the States?

Breaking: Gaddafi Calls 'Immediate Ceasefire' 3/20 - Now what?

Video also at link:

Libya: Gaddafi Calls 'Immediate Ceasefire'
7:18pm UK, Sunday March 20, 2011

Niall Paterson, defence correspondent, and Natalie Fahy
Colonel Gaddafi has recommended the armed forces call an immediate ceasefire, shortly after anti-aircraft fire was seen in the sky over Tripoli.

The declaration - effective from 7.00pm - was announced by a government spokesman at a press conference.

The United States earlier said it expects to conduct more air strikes on Libya, as the Arab League also criticised the military action.

The anonymous US official said the operation was "ongoing", adding: "I fully expect more strikes."



I know its off topic sorry...
but how could they put 6 nuclear reactors on the edge of a coastline in a known very active earth quake zone?

Got depression? Start WWIII.

I can't help but wonder if the "Allies" are looking at this and the other contemporary conflicts in the Middle East as an opportunity with which to start another great war and, thereby, pull the world out of economic ruin.

Prior to the US entering WWII, it became clear that the government could not draw down its welfare programs (created in response to the Great D) without spiraling the country back down into the throes of more depression. Historians now make sick Keynesian justifications for WWII as the only way for the US to have recovered from the depression.

As a few other posters have pointed out: most of our "leaders" own stock in the idea that war is the health of the state.

In My Humble Opinion, These Scum Bags Could End This In Hours.

By simply zeroing in on Col. Qaddifi's bunker with bombs and tomahawks until it's rubble, instead of drawing this out needlessly.


“The President does not have

“The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”

Quote from (Senator) Barack Obama, Dec. 20, 2007.

Columbus, Ohio

War # 3?

We have ongoing CIA and Naval destablization War Games in Iran.
We have ongoing CIA hostilities against Venezuela.
We're at War in Libya.

Dont forget the war in


I am outraged!

I am beyond angry about this.

*I* didn't ask for THIS war. I didn't ask for any of these wars. I didn't ask for Viet Nam and Bosnia and the Gulf War either--

how can this nonsense, this horror, be stopped?!

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

It is obscene

isn't it?

Especially with the fresh suffering of the Japanese people. And the damage to the planet that has been unleashed.

War No. 5 actually

Let's not forget about Pakistan and Yemen.

YES!!! on Friday...

... US drones killed 25 civilians in Pakistan, but only Al Jazeera reported on this...

Down the memory hole!

I didn't even know about that, and I'm usually pretty good about keeping up with things like that.

"No ground troops"

Yah right, how many hours until his statement (@2:14) becomes a non publicized lie?


Smart Weapons

Sure the US is going to stand off at a distance and use our technological advantage in weaponry to assist the international effort. What he doesn't explain is that many of these "smart weapons" require boots on the ground for targeting. Don't be fooled. The odds are there are already US troops on the ground in Libya.


Here's the perfect chance for true bipartisanship. I don't know how many of you have taken the time to watch Kucinich's speech on his bill to bring the troops home from the middle east. He is impassioned and correct. Here's the link. It is well worth the hour it takes to watch.


We should all contact him and call his bluff. Ask him if he feels so strongly about the issue, why doesn't he now call for Obama's impeachment? I'm sending him an email today.

My Email to Kucinich

This past week I watched your impassioned speech regarding bringing our troops home from the middle east. It was inspirational. I have emailed it to everyone I know.

This weekend the President has decided commit an act of war on the sovereign nation of Libya. In the past even the President himself has stated that the President does not have the authority to commit acts of war without congressional approval. His actions are an affront to his sworn oath to protect and defend the Constitution.

If you truly believe the things you said in your speech, this is the time to call for the President's impeachment. If such a call were to come from a Republican such as my representative, Dr. Paul, it would be dismissed as partisan at best or racist at worst. Every elected federal official takes the oath to protect and defend the Constitution. This is your chance.

I sincerely believe the Constitution is the supreme law of the nation. UN resolutions do not trump the Constitution.

Thank you for your consideration on this matter.

This is all I've been thinking about

Will Kucinich have the guts? Everything points to the man standing up against this tyrant that has occupied the peoples White House. Will a single Dem publically denounce this latest criminal action and subversion of our sovereignty?

God I wish Kucinich has the guts...

He at Least Tried

I saw this article on Politico. It indicates he brought the idea up but the establishment Democrats would have nothing to do with it. It appears that underneath his progressive shell there is at least a spark of a Constitutionalist. I'm going to contact his office again to commend him for at least broaching the subject. In the end neither party will have the cajones to act.


The answer is no.

He will not have the guts to bring forth letters of impeachment. Even if he did he has already shown us that a ride on air force one can change his mind about an issue. He has no intention of standing up to tyrannical behavior in general. He is only concerned with the constitution when it doesn't get in the way of his overall collectivist perspective. Using Ron Paul's voting record as an example for voting with the constitution you can easily see that Kucinich votes against the constitution around 75% of the time. The moral of the story is that while he is more principal driven than most democrats, he is also still loyal to the democrats to the extent that he will not attempt to impeach Obama.


am actually sick to my stomach! My government does NOT represent me! My government is NOT following its own laws--the Constitution! Nobel Peace Prize????
