Senate Panel Votes Yes to War; 10-7 w/1 present

And like that, the first step to all out war has been taken:

Vote breakdown: 10 Yes; 7 No; 1 Present. The measure includes new language saying U.S. policy is to "change the momentum on the battlefield in Syria" in way that brings about negotiated settlement of conflict, leading to a democratic govt in Syria. In other words: a pro-Qatari/Saudi coalition government that will permit the passage of natgas pipelines under Syria, through Turkey and into Europe, breaking Gazpromia's marginal energy monopoly over the broke continent.

Next up:

FULL U.S. SENATE TO CONSIDER SYRIA RESOLUTION NEXT WEEK

After that the House, and it's cruise missiles away.

And now, and as always, the ball is in Putin's court.

NOT ONE STATE, has shown that its even CLOSE. I am seeing

things like 96% against war and 91% against war.

There is no popular uprising. In fact quite the opposite.

ANYONE who reelects a totalitarian who clearly voted against the will of his constituents (and that includes EVERYONE supporting this thing) - should not only be defeated in the next election - but should be drawn and quartered. (Hanging is too good.)

Time for vigilance committees to arrest members of Congress...

who support this war. Which would you rather face, state and federal law enforcement or mushroom-shaped clouds?

so...

when will citizen's arrest vs. these traitorous govt terrorists commence?

According Section 1021 & 1022 of 2012 NDAA (which many in the above list, not to mention the rest of CONgress, voted FOR), anyone, as in those Senate motherfcuckers, who "substantially aids Al-CIA-duh and its associated forces" can be kidnapped in middle of the night by CIA, DIA, NSA, DEA, FBI, DHS or their mercenary contractors, without any charge, habeas corpus, due-process/lawyer, be indefinitely detained, blackbagged, tortured, and even be assassinated on POTUS's sole arbitrary whims.

Anyone NOT think directly funding Al-CIA-duh in Syria, CIA training, funding and arming them, is the very definition of "substantially aiding"?????

High time all current active Oath Keepers, in accordance with preventing 'misprison of treason,' commence citizens' arrest vs. every single one of these govt terrorist primates!

Arguendo, if we were to indeed have a Nuremberg 2.0 in the very near future and determine that 2012 NDAA is unconstitutional, so those citizens' arrests vs. those traitors are null and void, but funding, arming, and lying to the American Republic into an unconstitutional war that results in deaths? That, will still hold: no statutes of limitation on murder, or conspiracy TO murder, because that's all wars are, in its most succinct definition: one faction killing another & destroying their property to take over their taxbase/slave-plantation, to get their way, regardless of whether it's a "just war" of defense or not.

That, is what all wars are, in essence: murder & destruction. Nothing more.

And a non-defensive war? Where assholes take time to plan, false-flag & run psyop national propaganda media campaign TO murder innocents, that is perhaps the single most unforgivable cosmic crime, no??

Either way, the fact that USMC MARSOC is already en route, which already means that JSOC/SOCOM has already likely dispatched DEVGRU & 1st SFOD-D as early recon force in prep for ground invasion, and or target analysis & confirmation, not to mention CIA/DoD special access group stirring shiit up via proxy forces in Syria before any MARSOC element reached those shores, probably via Lebanon, with plausible allegations of nukes being moved around, without any paper trail, these fcukers truly are acting like they are going for broke.

Frankly, when nukes fly, all bets are off and EVERY SINGLE NWO scum should think twice, because by then, people will not take their shiit any more; many free humanity already know where they...

What happens when Syria tries to defend itself? They have a lot more high tech weapons than Saddam had.

Then Obama will feel justified in putting boots on the ground.

He'll supposedly then be forced to expand this soon-to-begin war even more. Such is the diabolical and twisted thinking by these warmongers.

Ed Markey (D-Mass.) is a Goober. He's the best Mass. can send? This is how Massachusetts went from being the "cradle of liberty" to being one of the worst, over taxed, bureaucratic, Marxists states in the Union.

Hope New Hampshirans give Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) a good tongue lashing.

Senate committee votes in favor of WWIII

that should be the headline. There will be a massive military reaction from the Syrians, Iranians, Chinese and Russians!

I thought this was about

I thought this was about CHEMICAL WEAPONS........aint it just like em

Read, seering anger, concentrated and tempered

If this succeeds there is going to be hell to pay for most

Democrats in the next election.

With the exception of the useless masses of biotissue known as McCain and Graham and a few hapless follower Republicans - this appears to be largely a Democrat favored war.

And the backlash is going to be fierce.

Lets just hope it sweeps in Liberty Republicans as it sweeps out stupid Democrats and NeoCons.

People MAY support the troops (too much) but nobody is going to support this war - ESPECIALLY if Syria and its allies don't roll over and die so easily as Iraqis did.

And a SHOUT OUT - to Ron Johnson (R), my Senator from Wisconsin, who (I am a little surprised, but PROUD) voted against this bill!

Since it's frequently

advised to follow the money, I am quite interested in knowing if any of the yes-voters own any stock, etc. in any military-related companies...

I bet there's a bunch that do!! SCUM!

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

I thought Jeff Flake had been a Ron Paul type in the past.

Maybe I heard wrong.

In any case, he's a war-monger now.

This is suggestive of a

This is suggestive of a popular decision of the American public to go to war! Nothing can be farther from the truth. It seems that more young American military deaths mean less to these “WMD fear-mongering senators” than their convoluted reasoning justifying a war practice destined to draw American military troops inexorably into the fray. That results in deaths in Syria. There are right minded Senators who follow the desires of their constituents by Voting NO:
Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.),
John Barrasso (R-Wyo.),
James Risch (R-Idaho),
Chris Murphy (D-Conn.),
Tom Udall (D-N.M.),
Marco Rubio (R-Fla, and
Ron Johnson (R-Wis.)
There are blind sided political connivers who could care less about what the overwhelming majority of their constituents demand, and have no blood (children) at risk in this conflict, by Voting Yes:
Committee Chairman Robert Menendez (D-N.J.),
ranking member Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and
Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.),
Dick Durbin (D-Ill.),
Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.),
Ben Cardin (D-Md.),
Chris Coons (D-Del.),
John McCain (R-Ariz.),
Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and
Tim Kaine (D-Va.)
and one lost wolf who does not know which way to turn Voting Present:
Ed Markey (D-Mass.)
Truly a sadder commentary could not have been portrayed than to endure the three hour mixed up logical jumble that tried to justify this war action. Kudos to you Rand Paul for articulating that which is the major feeling of the American public. We are better off staying out of SW Asian/Mideast affairs, and concentrate on the problems of the economy here.

"All the world's a stage"

...er, "theater". Who cares how any of them voted if the end result is to do evil? My Representative, Marlin Stutzman (former aid to the disgraced/disgraceful Mark Souder, and logical replacement as a beltway insider) is "skeptical" of war in Syria... So, he'll either vote in favor of it with some wild rationalization (like his NDAA yes vote), or just to keep the 'game' interesting, vote against it knowing full well it will happen anyway.
The people who really run this racket apparently want war, so war ye shall have. Got it?
