"They" just couldn't "wait" any longer. Trigger fingers itchy. Bombs away: ISIS, Syria!

For “breaking” news on the U.S. and its current “Oh goodie, it’s about time!” bombing if “ISIS” in Syria, you might go to Jean Haines site, as she keeps on top of the madness. Meanwhile, according to peace activist David Swanson, who also keeps on top of the madness, while elucidating and promoting obvious alternatives to war:

This action is illegal under the UN Charter, Kellogg-Briand Pact, and U.S. Constitution. This action is immoral as it fuels violence that needs to be reduced. This action is knowingly, maddeningly counterproductive, guaranteed to build hostility to the United States, which is already so hated that ISIS openly advocates for a U.S. attack on it. This action by this White House is what ISIS wants and what weapons makers want. It is not what the people of Syria or Iraq or the world want. It further shreds the rule of law while dumping gasoline on a fire of U.S. creation.

This bombing, I imagine deliberately ignited on the Fall Equinox, 2014, to follow Obama’s announcement of it on the eve of the 13th anniversary of 9/11/2014, is the latest in Empire’s endless rollout of atrocities that make money for the 001%, create enemies, waste lives, ruin Earth, and “degrade and destroy” the moral fabric of America.

ISIS, Weapons Makers, Thugs Benefit from Bombing

President Obama is bombing the opposite side in Syria from the side he swore we needed to attack one year ago, and those pleased by this declare that he is “doing something.”

U.S. polls suggest that the same people recognize that this something will make the U.S. more likely to be attacked and nonetheless favor this action. This is unthinking fear produced by slick beheading videos for audiences too distracted to notice that the Iraqi government, Saudi government and numerous other U.S. friends and allies behead. And are we to imagine that when Obama kills a 16 year old American and the 6 kids near him his head remains intact? Should we pretend that the people being killed by U.S. missiles right now aren’t losing their heads?

This action is illegal under the UN Charter, Kellogg-Briand Pact, and U.S. Constitution. This action is immoral as it fuels violence that needs to be reduced. This action is knowingly, maddeningly counterproductive, guaranteed to build hostility to the United States, which is already so hated that ISIS openly advocates for a U.S. attack on it. This action by this White House is what ISIS wants and what weapons makers want. It is not what the people of Syria or Iraq or the world want. It further shreds the rule of law while dumping gasoline on a fire of U.S. creation.

What’s needed is, contrary to what your television suggests, not to “do nothing” or love beheadings. What’s needed is an arms embargo. The U.S. ships 79% of the weapons shipped to the Middle East, not counting the weapons of the U.S. military. An arms embargo could be 79% successful with just one country participating, and others could certainly be brought to do so.

What’s needed is actual aid on a massive scale, restitution to the people of the region for the crimes of the U.S. government. An aid program sufficient to make the United States beloved rather than hated would cost a lot less money than the missiles and bombs for which price seems to be no concern at all.

What’s needed is diplomacy. The U.S. government is happy to talk with Syria or Iran or Russia when the object is war. Why can it not talk to them when the object is peace?

Our Constitutional scholar Nobel peace laureate no-dumb-wars end-the-mindset president will be protested today at the White House and at his appearance in New York, and should be protested everywhere he goes.

Congress members should not know a moment’s peace, but should be taught that cowardice is not a campaign strategy. None who voted for weapons to Syria should be returned to Washington next year.

War as a first resort, as our biggest public program, as the be all and end all of U.S. foreign policy is a form of insanity that has no redeeming feature. War is our top destroyer of the natural environment, of the economy, of civil liberties, of self-governance, and of morality. This is a case of a doctor trying to cure the world while suffering from a deadly and highly infectious disease that in his own mind is the epitome of health.

You can’t cure war fever with more war. You can only get to peace through peace.

Stop the bombing.

    Do you not get the feeling that actual demons are let loose?
    There seems to be overwhelming evidence to me at this point.
    Lately in my sleep at night, I feel that I am with spirits of a much higher order. I wake up comforted and inspired. I was grateful that so many joined in community this past weekend, in concerns over the health of our mother.
    However, I have grown increasingly suspicious over the “human induced” climate change theory.
    Especially since human induced climate change theory was initially espoused by corporate media.
    Fukushima is very real, and yet our government refuses to officially test the Pacific. What does that tell us? This Saturday, September 27th, the 3rd Global March on Chemtrails is to be held. I wonder how many people who attended last weekend’s march, are even aware that we are being sprayed?

    http://www.storyleak.com/unprecedented-global-march-against-chemtrails-and-geoengineering-september-27-2014/

    The following is the best video I have watched on chemtrails. 43 minutes.

    Interesting that our government was spurned via invasion of Syria just a little over a year ago, and now they have ramped up the ante, in order to complete their mission. The fact that all of our elected officials seem to be in lock-step into taking us into yet another fiasco, tells us much. Still many if not most US citizens remain asleep. How much evidence does one need? At a certain point, it becomes a conscious choice. to remain indifferent.
    I am looking forward to connection of heart and mind with others through global consciousness focused on healing the virus of hate, which now seems to have affected the entire middle east. And flowing a healing balm of love, strength and peace, over all sentients who are open to receive, on this Autumn Equinox, 8 PM.

    • I will join you at 8 p.m. this evening. I also wonder about actual demons loosed. Rich Buckley also brought up the question of whether or not so-called conscious folks are aware of chem-trails.

        In addition to chemtrails, there’s also the fact that other planets in our solar system are also experiencing extreme weather events. Either the “elite” are chemtrailing and CO2-ing them, or there’s something else going on. I think people are much more comfortable getting outraged about “manmade” climate change than they would be in recognizing that there are much bigger forces in our little spot of the universe than solar panels and hybrid cars can “fix.”

        One might even argue that the chemtrails are designed –at least in part — to hide more obvious things going on in the skies. Couple that with the budget shutdown charade last fall that just happened to close off the telescopes/observatories and send most of NASA (and by extension much of the international scientific crew) packing home from all their Antarctic research last year, and we might possibly be getting a tiny little bit closer. Manmade Earth poisoning is not a joke, but manmade climate change is a very unfunny joke, a way to fleece good hearted sheep, and a convenient cover for all manner of ill-intentioned plans. The looming fear of what else could REALLY be causing all this extreme weather, earthquake and volcanic uptick keeps people locked into “manmade” climate change outrage, because if it’s manmade, then at least “we” can do something about it.

        Oh, but that all sounds like a conspiracy theory, doesn’t it? 😉

        • No it does not sound crazy to me. I remember David Wilcock talking about the entire solar system “heating up” at the UFO Congress maybe five years ago. The perspective you give here makes way too much sense! I hadn’t thought it through the way you have. Thanks.

    Ann – at least your US Rep voted “Nay”! (back to original thread) and chem-trails – you’d be surprised who does know. Not people who watch television, but some other unlikelies (i.e. someone who never reads David Swanson or Zen Gardner or any alike). Thank you for offering alternative (8 pm)! always matters – I more often now sense intention matters so much, even someone like me who used to think she never influenced events …

    I think this is all part of Agenda 21. The prime directive is to remove 2/3 of the population whether by wars, vaccines, chemtrails, radiation and while killing us , make a few bucks at the same time. Of course they are doing this because we’re silent, we’re too drugged with fluoride and artifcial sweeteners (neurotoxins) to even realize what madness we are living in or just too exhausted from struggling and couldn’t be bothered. They will continue on with their agenda of killing us off until we get off our fat asses and do something about it. Remember when Gaza was being bombed to oblivion? Just about every country in the world was protesting against it. Why can’t we do the same each time a bomb is dropped anywhere in the world? Whos’ life is more important? Hell, almost every country is in trouble being killed one way or another. If not with bombs then with vaccines and pharmaceutical drugs. We have to stand up and say enough. There is no point getting mad at “THEM” they are doing it because they know they can get away with it. Until we’re all dead they are not going to stop. So, when do we finally say “enough”???
