You've got read this...

summary of Obama's tv interviews so far today...he has completely confused everyone and contradicted his own spokespeople and he even said his extended family is opposed. This is almost humorous.


Does anyone know

if there is somewhere to watch PBS live online?

Where we are...


Earlier in the week, John Kerry made an off-the-cuff remark, saying that Assad could avoid a strike by turning over all of his chemical weapons to be destroyed "within the next week, without delay. But he isn't about to."

Now Russia has pounced on this, throwing their full support behind Kerry's idea that Syria put its weapons under international control to be destroyed, giving a proposal to Syria.


Syria's own foreign minister has welcomed the proposal, saying, "The Syrian Arab Republic welcomed the Russian initiative, based on the concerns of the Russian leadership for the lives of our citizens and the security of our country."

Even the UN Secretary General is all over it, drawing up plans for moving Syria's weapons to a secure location, to be destroyed under the eyes of the UN

But the US State Department has now frantically backpedaled, saying that it was never a proposal, only a "rhetorical argument," and that any effort is meaningless because Assad "cannot be trusted."

If they go ahead with this, it only proves to the entire world what a worthless POS Obama and his cronies really are, as if any doubts still remained.

Ecclesiastes 1:9 What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.

It seems...

That Assad is actually the better of the mediocre men of Kerry and Obama.

Cant watch Rose



C Rose did his best...

To make Assad look like a mad man who uses chemical weapons on his own people. Big fail! It is Chalie Rose who looked like a madman. He never acknowleged that Colin Powell presented false evidence to take us into war and now Kerry wants to go to war with NO evidence. Come on!

Deep down everyone is Libertarian.
Live and Let Live, form of government.

You Are Not Alone. I Imagine most of us feel the same way

about Rose as we do about other media personalities we have had to listen to if we want to educate ourselves. It helped reading the comments first, all positive remarks regarding Assad, all negative regarding Rose. Now I will force myself to watch this interview.


AGAIN, when the question of

AGAIN, when the question of evidence is STILL not resolved, the MSM behave as if it is an issue resolved....by stating as FACT that assad did it, based on evidence the people are not cleared to view

I dont think they realise how bad this is getting, their like a dog with a stick, if they say it enough times, people may start believing them, whereas, the reality is, the more they try to sweep the concern of actual CREDIBLE evidence under the rug, the more it becomes obvious......they are their own worst enemy.......i wonder if this is one of the reasons why empires of past fell.....its their nature, not a willing one, but the nature of power none the less


Since when should the leader of a sovereign nation have to get on foreign TV and make his and his countries case for not being attacked?

It is completely shameful and a dangerous precedent.

I personally would like that

I personally would like that kind of open communication, except i do wish they would ask liberty minded media, instead of the very same mainstream media folks who are trying to discredit them, because, you know, theres no extreme bias there

would be something to see Assad on the Ron Paul Channel

if only it could happen.

Hyper-elite bona fides for Triple Crown Charlie


With his CFR and Trilateral Commission membership and Bilderberg attendee hyper-elite bona fides, Charlie Rose came right out and said we’re in the New World Order in an interview with Nancy Pelosi.

Charlie Rose Nancy Pelosi 10 25 12 Search Videos online. DARK Tube

43:00 minutes “And if we don’t have it, can we be competitive in a changing world with the New World Order in which there are powerful new economic forces. not just in China and India, but in Turkey but in Latin America?”

There is no attempt to hide the NWO any more by the elitists.

I think anyone relying on the MSM watching this interview,

and this one http://www.dailypaul.com/298606/dr-jeffrey-sachs-blasts-morn...

can pretty much figure out the big picture.

Obama showed the evidence

To the other crooks sucking off the teet of the military industrial complex!
Well then....it must be legit.

Charlie Rose

is a worn out hack. There he is in another man's country looking like he took the red eye flight 5 times. Assad is articulate in another man's language and Rose acts as though he does not understand.

The world is waking up and is there any question why we Americans are despised so much?



"gee if we attack you, please tell us exactly how you will retaliate"


Geez! Why is Rose arguing

Geez! Why is Rose arguing with him? Asaad sounds more rational, and articulate than the bloody interviewer. What is it with American interviewers? They are incapable of a courteous discourse. and his questions are stupid...ie "What will you do if we strike?" What do you think he's going to do dumbass? I can't watch this crap anymore... When Asaad appears more reasonable than American leadership...it's time to call it quits. I don't like being on the wrong side of what is right.Assad has more courage agreeing to an interview than bloody Obama who can't even come to the House????? There is NO CASE to present.

I felt the same way...

while watching this. Assad is attempting to describe the real situation in the Middle East, but American media is so simple minded and so used to thinking in black and white and vast generalizations they can't understand what the guy is saying.

Interesting, that Rose keeps saying how the evidence was shown to congress; yeah, that's why many of them are against this...no evidence at all.

Where's the UNEDITED version

Where's the UNEDITED version


get the whole interview until it is shown tonight; then hopefully the whole thing will be on YouTube.

All those who expected to see

All those who expected to see a ranting, raging raghead, will be seriously disappointed with Assad. A soft-spoken, intelligent, English speaking, reasonable-sounding man should surprise all of them. Of course, since our country is following the doctrine of the Mongols, it probably makes no difference to their war-blindered eyes.

May me laugh :D

I expect Assad to be more like Hannibal Lecture http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTK3bXMDNKQ

Offtopic, sort of
When is a "terrorist" a DOMESTIC terrorist?

When its not backed by government!

Very rational arguments from

Very rational arguments from Assad. Expect everything because there are many factions involved. If the administration had the evidence they would present it to the American people. High confidence from word-of-mouth from the same political leaders that falsified evidence regarding Iraq. All sound arguments from Assad.


"you're a reporter, get this evidence and show it to the public in your country..."

Assad is not having any of it and Charlie can't back up his accusations.
