Military Times Survey: 75% of Troops Oppose Strikes On Syria

How does the totally out of touch main stream media spin this?

"It’s always a good sign for an empire’s fortunes when the commander in chief of the armed forces completely loses the confidence and trust of the troops. While we have all seen various polls demonstrating the general public’s complete opposition to unprovoked military aggression against Syria, I hadn’t seen a survey focused on military members until now. The results are not good for the establishment. From the Military Times:"

"The results suggest that opposition inside the military may be more intense than among the U.S. population at large. About 64 percent of Americans oppose air strikes, according to a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll published Monday"

“The moral and constitutional obligations of our representatives in Washington are to protect our liberty, not coddle the world, precipitating no-win wars, while bringing bankruptcy and economic turmoil to our people.” - Ron Paul

Yeah, thanks.

Yeah, thanks.

Great catch, thanks Michael

Ever wonder what stopped the View Nam War?


I've watched the full movie on the net but couldn't find it just now.

Also, the 'officers' commanding the platoons also started being shot by 'snipers' at an ever increasing rate. Some suggested it was 'fragging' but I never saw any follow up.

It's called, where the rubber meets the road.

EDIT: For the record, I was subject to the draft but it had been turned into a lottery system by then and wasn't picked. I never went to a protest and thought those that ran to Canada were cowards.

Today, I would be on the FRONT LINES of a protest and think those that wouldn't fight are heroes.

All I used my draft card for was to 'smudge' the number a bit on the year so I could 'legally' purchase things a little sooner than my real age allowed. ;)

Little did the US soldiers

Little did the US soldiers know at the time, it was the false flag Gulf of Tonkin event that got them to be cannon fodder in the first place.


Being in their age group I've known and still do, a lot of Viet Nam vets.


use I've become involved, I can break it down into two groups. The largest being the Vet's that stood for Ron Paul. Mostly silent types until he ran for president in 2008.

The other group, are the ones that have used the war to beat their chest and show how 'dominant' the US is because of our military might.

I've always wondered what motivated that type of behavior. The Karen Hudes thing explains everything I'd been looking into.

Essentially, the Vatican has been working on legalizing the next Inquisition. It's as simple as that.

When the troops you use to

When the troops you use to spread CONTROL start saying, "enough is enough", you know your in trouble

If they are good people, they will start listening, if they have something to gain, they will start scheming

This could be a big problem

This could be a big problem for TPTB.
