22 Reasons Why Starting World War 3 In The Middle East Is A Really Bad Idea

Tomahawk cruise missileWhile most of the country is obsessing over Miley Cyrus, the Obama administration is preparing a military attack against Syria which has the potential of starting World War 3.  In fact, it is being reported that cruise missile strikes could begin “as early as Thursday“.  The Obama administration is pledging that the strikes will be “limited”, but what happens when the Syrians fight back?  What happens if they sink a U.S. naval vessel or they have agents start hitting targets inside the United States?  Then we would have a full-blown war on our hands.  And what happens if the Syrians decide to retaliate by hitting Israel?  If Syrian missiles start raining down on Tel Aviv, Israel will be extremely tempted to absolutely flatten Damascus, and they are more than capable of doing precisely that.  And of course Hezbollah and Iran are not likely to just sit idly by as their close ally Syria is battered into oblivion.  We are looking at a scenario where the entire Middle East could be set aflame, and that might only be just the beginning.  Russia and China are sternly warning the U.S. government not to get involved in Syria, and by starting a war with Syria we will do an extraordinary amount of damage to our relationships with those two global superpowers.  Could this be the beginning of a chain of events that could eventually lead to a massive global conflict with Russia and China on one side and the United States on the other?  Of course it will not happen immediately, but I fear that what is happening now is setting the stage for some really bad things.  The following are 22 reasons why starting World War 3 in the Middle East is a really bad idea…

#1 The American people are overwhelmingly against going to war with Syria…

Americans strongly oppose U.S. intervention in Syria’s civil war and believe Washington should stay out of the conflict even if reports that Syria’s government used deadly chemicals to attack civilians are confirmed, a Reuters/Ipsos poll says.

About 60 percent of Americans surveyed said the United States should not intervene in Syria’s civil war, while just 9 percent thought President Barack Obama should act.

#2 At this point, a war in Syria is even more unpopular with the American people than Congress is.

#3 The Obama administration has not gotten approval to go to war with Syria from Congress as the U.S. Constitution requires.

#4 The United States does not have the approval of the United Nations to attack Syria and it is not going to be getting it.

#5 Syria has said that it will use all means available” to defend itself if the United States attacks.  Would that include terror attacks in the United States itself?

#6 Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem made the following statement on Tuesday

“We have two options: either to surrender, or to defend ourselves with the means at our disposal. The second choice is the best: we will defend ourselves”

#7 Russia has just sent their most advanced anti-ship missiles to Syria.  What do you think would happen if images of sinking U.S. naval vessels were to come flashing across our television screens?

#8 When the United States attacks Syria, there is a very good chance that Syria will attack Israel.  Just check out what one Syrian official said recently

A member of the Syrian Ba’ath national council Halef al-Muftah, until recently the Syrian propaganda minister’s aide, said on Monday that Damascus views Israel as “behind the aggression and therefore it will come under fire” should Syria be attacked by the United States.

In an interview for the American radio station Sawa in Arabic, President Bashar Assad’s fellow party member said: “We have strategic weapons and we can retaliate. Essentially, the strategic weapons are aimed at Israel.”

Al-Muftah stressed that the US’s threats will not influence the Syrain regime and added that “If the US or Israel err through aggression and exploit the chemical issue, the region will go up in endless flames, affecting not only the area’s security, but the world’s.”

#9 If Syria attacks Israel, the consequences could be absolutely catastrophic.  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is promising that any attack will be responded to “forcefully“…

“We are not a party to this civil war in Syria but if we identify any attempt to attack us we will respond and we will respond forcefully”

#10 Hezbollah will likely do whatever it can to fight for the survival of the Assad regime.  That could include striking targets inside both the United States and Israel.

#11 Iran’s closest ally is Syria.  Will Iran sit idly by as their closest ally is removed from the chessboard?

#12 Starting a war with Syria will cause significant damage to our relationship with Russia.  On Tuesday, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said that the West is acting like a “monkey with a hand grenade“.

#13 Starting a war with Syria will cause significant damage to our relationship with China.  And what will happen if the Chinese decide to start dumping the massive amount of U.S. debt that it is holding?  Interest rates would absolutely skyrocket and we would rapidly be facing a nightmare scenario.

#14 Dr. Jerome Corsi and Walid Shoebat have compiled some startling evidence that it was actually the Syrian rebels that the U.S. is supporting that were responsible for the chemical weapons attack that is being used as justification to go to war with Syria…

With the assistance of former PLO member and native Arabic-speaker Walid Shoebat, WND has assembled evidence from various Middle Eastern sources that cast doubt on Obama administration claims the Assad government is responsible for last week’s attack.

You can examine the evidence for yourself right here.

#15 As Pat Buchanan recently noted, it would have made absolutely no sense for the Assad regime to use chemical weapons on defenseless women and children.  The only people who would benefit from such an attack would be the rebels…

The basic question that needs to be asked about this horrific attack on civilians, which appears to be gas related, is: Cui bono?

To whose benefit would the use of nerve gas on Syrian women and children redound? Certainly not Assad’s, as we can see from the furor and threats against him that the use of gas has produced.

The sole beneficiary of this apparent use of poison gas against civilians in rebel-held territory appears to be the rebels, who have long sought to have us come in and fight their war.

#16 If the Saudis really want to topple the Assad regime, they should do it themselves.  They should not expect the United States to do their dirty work for them.

#17 A former commander of U.S. Central Command has said that a U.S. attack on Syria would result in “a full-throated, very, very serious war“.

#18 A war in the Middle East will be bad for the financial markets.  The Dow was down about 170 points today and concern about war with Syria was the primary reason.

#19 A war in the Middle East will cause the price of oil to go up.  On Tuesday, the price of U.S. oil rose to about $109 a barrel.

#20 There is no way in the world that the U.S. government should be backing the Syrian rebels.  As I discussed a few days ago, the rebels have pledged loyalty to al-Qaeda, they have beheaded numerous Christians and they have massacred entire Christian villages.  If the U.S. government helps these lunatics take power in Syria it will be a complete and utter disaster.

#21 A lot of innocent civilians inside Syria will end up getting killed.  Already, a lot of Syrians are expressing concern about what “foreign intervention” will mean for them and their families…

“I’ve always been a supporter of foreign intervention, but now that it seems like a reality, I’ve been worrying that my family could be hurt or killed,” said one woman, Zaina, who opposes Assad. “I’m afraid of a military strike now.”

“The big fear is that they’ll make the same mistakes they made in Libya and Iraq,” said Ziyad, a man in his 50s. “They’ll hit civilian targets, and then they’ll cry that it was by mistake, but we’ll get killed in the thousands.”

#22 If the U.S. government insists on going to war with Syria without the approval of the American people, the U.S. Congress or the United Nations, we are going to lose a lot of friends and a lot of credibility around the globe.  It truly is a sad day when Russia looks like “the good guys” and we look like “the bad guys”.

What good could possibly come out of getting involved in Syria?  As I wrote about the other day, the “rebels” that Obama is backing are rabidly anti-Christian, rabidly anti-Israel and rabidly anti-western.  If they take control of Syria, that nation will be far more unstable and far more of a hotbed for terrorism than it is now.

And the downside of getting involved in Syria is absolutely enormous.  Syria, Iran and Hezbollah all have agents inside this country, and if they decide to start blowing stuff up that will wake up the American people to the horror of war really quick.  And by attacking Syria, the United States could cause a major regional war to erupt in the Middle East which could eventually lead to World War 3.

I don’t know about you, but I think that starting World War 3 in the Middle East is a really bad idea.

Let us hope that cooler heads prevail before things spin totally out of control.

  • Boo-urns

    There is no need for a *world* war. Just let them all kill each other; the sooner the world is free from the idiocy that abounds throughout the entire middle east — including Israel — the better off the rest of us will be.

  • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

    Does anyone out there see this ending well?


    • Rodster

      The US and it’s Allies don’t care what happens in the Middle East. In fact it’s my view that they would prefer absolute chaos and a full blown out war.

      As the mantra in 1992 Elections…”It’s all about the economy stupid”. And the same applies here as well. This is all desperation as the US knows what’s coming economically. If they can ramp up their Military Industrial Complex it could help boost the economy. That is the primary business the US is in. It’s all about war and spying.

      I do hate constantly repeating the man but it’s needed here as well. This all played out during the Great Depression except this time all the fiat based currency nations are in the same boat as the US and this time they have nukes

      “Trade wars, Currency wars, World wars”
      – Gerald Celente

      • Adrian

        On the contrary, a few may benefit…the CEOS and huge shareholders of Halliburton, Ratheon, etc…but the economy would be hurt by threats to oil, decreased stability in the ME, and so on. They don’t care about the economy, if they did they would have implemented stark programs to bring millions back to work. Instead, it’s been business as usual with downsizing, QE 2,3, 4, and shipping jobs overseas.

    • davidmpark

      No. It won’t.

    • Bad Kitty Cat

      Not at all… and I also wonder how many US allies are going to join in! I truely believe there is a strong desire for war!

      • old fart

        As usual they will join in for the first few months then slowly fade away leaving the US stuck with the whole mess. it has happened every time this time we are having a revisit to the crusades,, That mess lasted for 200 years and was never settled it just quieted down for a mutual draw.

    • Hambone

      Short of the second coming, I see no happy endings to this play.

    • cateye

      No good ending. Cataclysm perhaps. I got a bad feeling about this whole thing….like the US is being led like a lamb to slaughter.

      • Colby Williams

        We should just back off of the whole Syrian thing, its not worth it.

    I think we are on the verge of a economic collapse and a world war. With everything going on in just this country i will be surprise if we make in till the end of Oct. I have said this before. The train is just about to go over the cliff.

    • Yes. true…I believe its a distraction. September is Illuminati New year and they do some crap during the Month of September like 911…

      What is coming to Americans next month could be 100 times worse than what they would do to Syrians.

      Americans needs to be more prepared and ready than Syrians it seems …It could be a distraction to cause chaos in America.

      They know no one wants war in America and even lame stream is publishing that story and 99% of comments on main stream news sites like CNN is against war….

      I believe America is their next target not Syria even though they are making it look like its Syria and Iran….

      Even if this does not turn out this way…Americans need to be prepared for all scenarios….as they are center of all problems created by the cabal. good luck….Make friends and join forces….Unity is Strength….

          How much was she charging per lay?

      • Sueychop

        When the stuff hits the fan every American should make sure to shoot at least two Russians before they get shot themselves. That way we win.

    • seth datta

      How can this not be a part of/prelude to the End Times? And yet ignorance and apathy are the order of the day for most folk.

    • Tim

      @Richard, I couldn’t agree more. I think this October we will have our eyes opened. This train is in full speed. I have been stocking up for the last 2 years on food, ammo and sanitation. The biggest problem I have run into is income and cost of ammo. The ammo price has come down and some sites are catching up (midland and foxtrotgear seem to be the best prices). The ammo shortage hurt the last year, but my income seems like it has dwindled over the last 2 years.

      • Josh

        It has been a rough couple of months. I always check ammoseek and it seems like bulk ammo and foxtrotgear have the best bulk prices. Don’t forget sanitation, food and medical. Keep your powder dry.

      • MeMadMax

        If possible, keep a full tank of gas at all times. It seems like things are going faster than what we know.

    • Gay Veteran

      as Gerald Celente says about the economy: when all else fails they take you to war

  • Beanodle

    Oil at above $150.00 per barrel will decimate many economies. Especially it the suppliers demand Gold or a currency other than U.S. dollars for it.

    If Obama starts a foreign war without Congressional approval can he be impeached? Would his impeachment placate Russia and China?

    • Celery Muncher

      Impeachment didn’t faze Bill Clinton and it certainly won’t faze King Barry the rodeo clown. These people will simply laugh at the impeachment proceedings and there are not enough congressmen with guts to remove the putz from office even if he was impeached. Obama will go on his merry way doing what he pleases because everyone is so scared of being branded a racist that their balls are frozen in their pants….

    • Gay Veteran

      There is bipartisan agreement on empire abroad and the national security/surveillance state at home

        Bingo dood!

  • Arkaden

    “If the President takes us to war without Congressional approval, I will call for his impeachment. The Constitution is clear. And so am I.” -Joe Biden, 2007

    “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.” -Barack Obama, 2007

    THIS time must be different.

    • Hambone

      It’s sad, but those lying, two-faced hypocrites will never be held accountable for their words and actions by a great many of the lemmings in this country. We are truly getting the government we deserve.

    • Adrian


    • CorrectionSir

      Actually, the president can authorize military action, short of declaring war, if it is in support of allies, treaties or through the request of the UN. That’s the way things have been changed and rejiggered.

      • Gay Veteran

        and NONE of those apply in Syria

      • Ralfine

        Attacking a sovereign country is an act of war. And an attacked country has the right to defend itself, i.e. by sinking the attacking fleet.

    • squashpants

      He said that in 2007? Afghanistan started in 2001, and Iraq in 2003. What war was Biden referring to?

      • MeMadMax

        Prolly georgian conflict.

    • GodHelpUs

      Over amount of years U.S. prospered with the highest public debt. Without wars on it’s territory and so on.. Economy collapse is inevitable. To hold it over, U.S. needs to seed unstability and war in other countries. To keep ourselves stable country, to keep dollar high value (but without gold – dollar is just a paper). We intentonally made that “Arabic spring”, changed management of all those countries. Who didn’t agree – was murdered (like Kaddafi), who did like Egypt – was changed by our man. Now we expect another wave of economical collapse. We NEED to seed fear and distable east. And it’s not Obama! He’s just a puppet.. We made hugest and well trained army with the top weapons on other countries money 😀 But It won’t last forever…

    • churchill

      o aye pal for sure its diffrent obama changed his bacon for weetabix he goes for a 5 mile run now before thinking about war and fat soldiers not being able to run from their turbo tanks it takes an american soldier at least 2 hours to put his make up on first

    • Elelei Guhring

      Notice how neonics found in many pesticides most manufactured by Bayer/Monsanto and which have killed up to 70% of bee populations around the world are not an imminent threat to the nation, even though this action is considered Terrorism under US law: any action that endangers the food supply IS terrorism.

  • davidmpark

    We accepted our orders for NBC gas masks today. 2 adult sizes; 3 children sizes. Got them online for $6.99 ea/free shipping.

    Also got some extra med kits, potassium iodine, and more food.

    We will get hit. The US will get struck again and no country will cry for us. Could we take on the international community? Only if we use WMD’s on them, too. China, Russia, and Iran will retaliate.

    Congress needs to move to stop Obama as this is enough to prove he and his entourage are incapable of ensuring the welfare of the United States. Impeachment needs to be done, arrests need to be made, trials must commence… and sentences if judge and congressional jury find guilty anyone for crimes against this people.

    We must support such actions by Congress, or we will pay the price; not them.

    • ?huh

      Where did you get the masK? Were filters outdated? That is cheap!

      • davidmpark

        They’re IDF leftovers bought on Amazon. I also bought the new canisters – assuming the included cans are expired.

        • ?huh

          I looked and the Amazon review show the items are old and may not be useful and attack. Some are as old as 40 years.

      • davidmpark

        If you are worried about gas attacks, you can make a filter for an air conditioning unit.

        First, get all of the supplies you can: a lot of baking soda and wood charcoal (not briquettes), piece of wood, a scale (any kind), a large pot, 2 pillow cases, a plastic or metal box, and duct tape.

        Pour the baking soda into a pot and weigh it. After recording the weight, place on heat source and cook it for a few minutes. Remove and re-weigh, then repeat. When the scale no longer shows change in weight, pour the powder into a pillowcase and make more if necessary to fill to pillowcase about half way or more. This process converts the sodium bicarbonate into sodium carbonate (soda ash, or activated carbon).

        Now pour the charcoal onto the pot and use a piece of wood to crush the charcoal into smaller pieces, about the size of wheat grains. Pour into pillow case and make more if necessary to fill to pillowcase about half way or more. Some dust will fall out – let it.

        Now, drill or cut two holes big enough to snuggly fit the air intake hose of your A/C unit into the plastic or metal box on the shorter sides. Place the bag of soda ash on one side, the bag of charcoal on the other side. Seal with duct tape generously. Now attach the air intake hoses of your A/C unit on the unit with the air entering the charcoal first, and the soda ash second. Duct tape generously on both ends.

        We built this last year when the ash and smoke from local wildfires were choking the air around us. We were supremely comfortable with filtered air. Will it work for chemical weapons? The soda ash is the same ingredient used in gas
        masks, but I really don’t know. Works great for smoke and ash, and chili cook-off’s, but I have no real data that it will work for WMD’s. Can some experts chime in?

    • Truther

      Two easy reasons to understand: Racial Guilt and Desire for Something for Nothing. There you go.

    • saintmatty

      A very good chance that we will get hit. Major city and who knows where else. Get some food and water together. Might be inside for a few days as chaos occurs in the streets.

      • davidmpark

        One of those times a carbine would be handy…

    • Keywee

      “Why did such a good nation decide to #$%& itself over this bad? We’re so much better than this!” I think that as a nation you became complacent, distracted with trivial “entertainment”. The world banking system got it’s claws back into you after all that hard work by the founding fathers to escape it. Hopefully once enough of your own people are affected by the actions of your government you will rediscover your revolutionary roots.

    • Gay Veteran

      “…Congress needs to move to stop Obama….”
      you assume they disagree with him

          we will all be disappointed, because there is NO difference between the 2 parties

    • Ralfine

      All people have the government they deserve.

  • Syrin

    Here’s how this could play out. We invade Syria. It’s a leaping point to go to war with Iran who has already threatened war with Israel if we invade. Obama will sign the UN Small Arms Treaty, and Russian troops have already been training on US soil for over a year to disarm Americans. I believe they will stage some false flag event in FEMA region 3 which has been urgently stockpiling by “no later than October 1” according to all their requests for supplies. (do a search, they are stockpiling a A ton in FEMA region 3) Martial law will be declared enforced by our militarized polive, some Iranian patsy will be blamed, and they will jump from Syria to Iran. Obama had a behind the scenes meeting with the highest level financial people in the US last week. The last time this happened, they took out gold. I think they will use the war and false flag events to perform a simultaneous engineered collapse of the economy because they know we cannot recover from our debt burden hoping the no information GARY voters will blame the evil Syrians for our economic problems. Just like Nazzzi Germany, we become a dictatorship overnight.

    • davidmpark

      Okay, I looked it up about the stockpiling for region 3. That makes good sense to concentrate around there for the sake of the powers in DC. They’d want to make sure they don’t have any disruptions in their cocktail parties and lasciviousness.

      They stockpiled around the furherbunker during the battle for Berlin. Makes sense to do that sort of thing when they make unpopular and more blatant illegal actions against their own people.

    • K

      Excellent comment. The idea behind Russian troops was, it would be easier to get them to fire on civilians. I wonder if the puppet masters every gave any thought to the fact, that would cut both ways.

      • K

      Over the top but I understand the concern. It is not like the fools in DC have earned any trust.

    • old fart

      How can that be after all Zero won the Nobel Peace Prize.

      1st Oct came and went, ya rumour-monger..

  • K

    Ever since they passed that war on terror resolution in 2001. It seems no President feels they need clearance from anyone. Can this end well? Only if a backdoor agreement has been made with Russia and China. A certain number of missiles fired at certain agreed on targets. In exchange they stick to just stern words. If such an agreement does not exist. Then the first salvo, could easily cause everyone in the area, to bring out their new toys. And that will not end well.

  • A D

    OIL is naturally occurring – GOD created the earth & everything in it. There is enough OIL in the USA, but the eco-nazi’s and other idiots will not allow them to drill. Just like AIR now carbon is a threat, so many idiots believe all of the LIES trumped up by elites.

    • davidmpark

      “OIL is naturally occurring…” Yeah, the Abiotic Oil process. We won’t ever run out of oil.

      • Ralfine

        Any idea why it’s called organic chemistry?

    • Trainwreck Coming Fast

      That will change. It is ALL going to change once the fur begins to fly domestically and abroad. Things that will be different:

      –Even the liberal fools will be begging to drill. But they will not understand that decades of no new refineries means terrifying shortages caused by them.

      –No more discretionary spending on music, entertainment, parties, etc. Sure, it will occur, but a tenth of what is evident now. The boards, extra houses, luxuries, will no longer be part of life. Maybe not so bad.

      –Roving bands of gangs and criminals will be put down by law abiding citizens with guns. People will no longer accept crime. Bring back the death penalty and frontier justice. It is coming. The “I was disadvantages” growing up will only get a bullet in the head. The nation will no longer be able to afford and tolerate the rape of society.

      –Healthcare will be a disaster. Obama and the Left will blame it on the GOP but that will only work for the hardcore remnant of his supporters. The rest of the nation will marvel at its stupidity for not pushing back sooner. But they will realize the system has been so destroyed that it will take years to bring back what we had.

      –WHERE TO STOP? It is so obvious.

    • Gay Veteran

      at what cost? yeah you can have all the oil you want here at $500 a barrel

      As I have said elsewhere on Michael’s site, whatever goes up is also likely to go down. I can understand completely getting excited as the interest rate on 10s starts marching towards 3.0, but I have been following the rate for weeks now, and it goes up and then it goes down, and then it goes up, but not quite as much as it did before, and then it goes back down again. I don’t have much faith in the catastrophic view of events; usually things change slowly, and slowly enough that the powers that be can adjust to them and pull their gonads out of the fire. I could certainly be wrong, but I think interest rates fall into the same category. We shall see, eh?

  • tacoma

    As the history of 200+ years shows, you can always count on the U.S. government starting or get involved in war the moment the last war quiet down a bit.

    There is truly something exceptional about the United States. The love for the glory of war, of battle, gun and bombs, blood and flash, simply cannot stop. It’s a drug addiction. The $750 billion annual funding the military is a monster on auto-pilot, with bombs and missiles overflowing the warehouses, and officers itching for war promotion and glory.

    The Syrian civil war was started by Syrians for their own reasons. The country is on the other side of Earth from America, with absolutely no threat to any and all US interests no matter how minor.

    No matter. The president of the USA must police the world, teach ‘moral’ lessons, demonstrate American military power, at his own choosing. Dozens, thousands will be killed to satisfy Obama ego. The war machine will make money. Leaving Syria in a bigger mess.

    Then what?

    Then impeachment. Then The Hague war criminal indictment. Then cancellation of his Nobel Peace Prize.

    Why not left Obama’s leftwing supporters be the boots on the ground? Seriously? I mean, they are always telling the troops that they cannot pray anymore in certain spots, cannot smoke cigarettes, are serial sexual harassers, etc.

    This is a PERFECT chance for them to put their money where their mouths are. If Obama is so flawless, why not just follow him into the jaws of hell.

        Seriously guys the partisan stuff is old, can’t you both see its all the pols, the left is the right and the right is the left it all a matter of perspective the 2 party system if full o crap. Case and point face the nearest person then both of you put out your right hand your both pointing right but they are opposite directions. Now try the left same thing. Perspective is different. Now one hold out the left and the other the right now you see that its an illusion, just as the republican/democrat thing. Both party’s grow federal government period. They figured out how to keep everyone going in the direction as long as its not a straight line, no one notices they stand behind one another and direct the public either left or right but always forward toward their ultimate position. welcome to the new American political system and the end of the USA. Time is running short for whome the bell tolls…

    Though the decrease in Dow Jones can be attributied to aciton against Syria, it can be also said that the Dow Jones is acting in response to Republicans openly speaking about shutting down the government in an effort at defunding Obamacare.

    It looks like the American eagle is headed for a crash landing. It seems that American leaders are incredibly blind, stupid, or being controlled from behind, maybe all of the above. There is no reason to attack Syria. This is their civil war. They didn’t attack the U.S. or NATO! Why intervene now? The damage in Syria is already done. Their civil war has weakened their country so much that it will take decades to recover. Syria poses no threat to the U.S. in such a condition. They weren’t much of a threat in the past. Russia can not stand idly by and see their friends in the region fall like dominoes. Russia’s position is stronger than America’s. Their military is not worn out like America’s. Their economy is stronger than America’s. They may decide to swat the American eagle out of the sky once and for all.

    • MelArk

      I just meant that the money they’re taking from us now anyway should be better applied in our own country, as opposed to using it to fund a war. It shouldn’t be removed from our paychecks in the fist place….and what is levied on our wages should be going back into investments into infrastructure, education and our defense budget to protect what we have here, on our continent…it shouldn’t be used to fund foreign wars where other people profit at the expense of the American populace….it shouldn’t be taken from us in the first place….but it is, in the form of income taxes….and what is used should be used toward helping the problems that we have here….within our nation….not to fund a distant, foreign war

      • Keywee

        I know exactly what you meant and I agree. I was having a laugh.

  • MelArk

    Excellent article….the last thing we need right now is a costly war overseas when we have so many problems here at home….money should be given back to the people who live here (i.e., not taken in the form of income taxes in the first place), or at least reinvested in maybe our country’s infrastructure, which is quickly failing across much of the country….into our education systems, which are very sub-what-should-be-standard and lacking in so many ways…back to people through the excessive income taxes levied on the working class….there are so many other things to use the capital of this nation (not that we have any because we’re operating in the red, but I digress) than to jump into an unnecessary war that is going to further put us at odds with China and Russia, who, if we annoy too much, will very likely put us in our place.

    With Iran supporting Syria and able to supply weapons to anyone who asks and with so many Muslim cells in this country now, I think when this war starts we are going to see the first invasion of war come to our continental shores in the form of the kind of terrorism we’ve had the privilege to watch from the comfort of our armchairs throughout the rest of the world these many years. I wonder aloud what affect this will have on the libs who have been so loud in their condemnation of “Islamaphobes.” Let’s see what they have to say when their families are blown up by suicide bombers.

    I am opposed to our government getting involved in this war. This war in Syria is not only a political war, it is also a religious war and a proxy war. This is Sunni vs Shia. This is Russian-backed allies vs American-backed allies. This war is a complicated mess. And, our country has a sorry and pathetic history of resolving civil wars. Each time we get involve, we seem to make matters worse for ourselves and for the people we are supposedly helping.

    I am looking at the map of Syria and noting where the different factions are located. The rebels are losing, with them being largely relegated to the eastern hinterlands of Syria. The largest cities of this country are under government control. I don’t think the rebels are capable of winning this war, and I think by “helping” them with cruise missiles hitting government targets, I feel that we would be prolonging this war. Let the Syrian government win this war. We know the caliber of al-Assad’s character and administration.

    I don’t think this war will bring forth World War III. Early proxy wars, such as Vietnam, didn’t bring the world to a global maelstrom.

    • WhammerJammer

      Colin – You used grammar, punctuation, and logical thought in your post…it’s very refreshing to see for a change in these comments! Congrats.

      A bit of research would show Russia’s historical interest in Syria, and as you pointed out, this is a proxy war between Shia and Sunni factions, and it won’t end well.

      Obama isn’t the Anti-Christ, the world is probably not going to end in October, I’m not going out and buying 55 gallon drums of beans, rice, and ammunition, but this could spiral into a full-fledged regional dust-up before it’s all over.

    Unfortunately this type of scenario was always in

    Mankind is deceitfully wicked at heart and that
    wicked rebellious spirit which is at work in the

    world has been waiting for the time and circumstance
    to plunge us all into chaos. This is not a fatalistic
    point of view just an inevitability. This is needed to
    prove to mankind that the Utopia that we sought
    was always an illusion, and that we, left to our own
    devices would eventually destroy ourselves.
    Remember when you told your child not to touch
    that because it’s very hot and it will burn you!
    We’re just big children with the same limited
    understanding of the bigger plan to expose the
    foolishness of mankind.God needs only to speak
    once at the end, after the deeds are done, and all
    they who maintain their rebelliousness, will have the opportunity to be eternally separated from
    their Creator. The last moment when the child
    slams his hand on the red hot burner with a
    wide grin of willful defiance UNTIL!

  • Lida Yanneth Ariza Fontecha

    Mi respuesta: Admito que mi lectura es a veces demasiado objetiva, es decir choca con posiciones extremas!!!

    1. “Ciudadanos EEUU en contra”: Afortunadamente las guerras siempre serán impopulares. Sin embargo es un dato vacío para los generales (afortunadamente).

    2. “más impopular ciudadanos que congresistas”: Triste sería al revés: ver un gobierno débil que no es capaz de defender un pueblo que lo exige.

    3. “aprobación del Congreso por Constitución”: Ese es el imperativo de la Democracia: el estamento militar no opina y el ejecutivo no manda, sólo gobierna. Cuando eso no se respeta se cae en autoritarismos mandados a recoger.

    4. “sin aprobación ONU”: Qué peligro!!! Pero no el hecho de actuar sin autoridad de la ONU, sino todo lo contrario: Un gobierno mundial, que audite, vigile, controle y decida por todos, es lo que menos necesitamos.

    5. “Defensa Siria con todo lo disponible”: La pregunta es: ¿quien ataca, también? Sobre todo si lo planeado no es de rápida y limpia ejecución, si se complica mucho… repetirían con una grande?

    6. “ministro: dos opciones: rendirnos o defendernos”: Están en su derecho, por lo menos de intentar una salida digna.

    7. “misiles antibuques”: EEUU posee los cañones anti-misiles anti-buque más avanzados. Siria puede tener hasta nukes… si hay-que atacar (es la orden que llegó hace rato) eso no los detendrá.

    8. “Siria ataca Israel…”: Aunque algunos escenarios son plausibles, gastar las energías restantes en otros es acabar de debilitarse internamente.

    9. “Si Siria ataca a Israel…”: Pero esta sería una causa para atacar… es decir, provocar que esto suceda le beneficia a USA, no veo lógico este punto como contra para no atacar.

    10. “Hezbolá ayudar a Assad”: Otro ilógico, pues si Hez los ataca (a usrael) tienen la excusa para destruirlos más rápido.

    11. “Siria es un aliado de Irán”: Por eso mismo hay que atacar!!! Diría USA (no yo).

    12. “relaciones USA + Rusia”: Hoy día no, antes quizás, pero la subsistencia de Rusia es más importante que las malas relaciones por terceros.

    13. “relaciones USA + China”: Similar al anterior y hasta menos complicado. Son riesgos que vale la pena correr (diría USA)

    14. “pruebas fueron los rebeldes”: Afortunadamente las acciones de guerra no se pueden determinar por lo que los civiles piensen, hagan, digan ó “demuestren”. Para eso existen los organismos que recopilan información.

    15. “sin sentido régimen empleara armas químicas”: La pregunta, entre varias posibles, es: Assad qué tanto controla su ejército?.

    16. “EEUU no ser intermediarios de sauditas para derrocar a Assad”: Está insinuando que la US-Army es un ejército mercenario que libra guerras por petróleo? Grave acusación!!!

    17. “una guerra muy, muy seria”: Que un ex-comandante lo diga es cuando menos grave: ¿Acaso no toda guerra es algo de extrema seriedad, que se sopesan con total cordura y responsabilidad todas las causas, consecuencias y variantes antes de iniciarla?

    18. “mercados financieros impacto negativo”: Depende de quién lo mire, para otros es bueno: más armas se venden, más ganancias por el petróleo no afectado, más caras las colecciones robadas… todo depende.

    19. “precios del petróleo”: Bonanza para algunos de LatAmérica, entre otros… y claro sus principales petroleras que son gringas!!!Triste, pero cierto.

    20. “La Casa Blanca y Al Qaeda”: Una de las mejores formas de ganar guerras ha sido consolidar mercenarios en otros países. Ojalá no se les vuelva a voltear el tiesto y de nuevo todo empiece (Gran negocio el de las armas).

    21. “civiles inocentes”: Daños colaterales que se deben asumir ante el peligro de la apropiación de armas químicas por los rebeldes y que luego lleguen a ser usadas contra occidente en nuestro propio suelo (diría USA).

    22. “EEUU perder amigos y credibilidad”: Amigos? si solo tiene los que están en estas mismas: .uk y .fr, de resto aliados que jamás se opondrán realmente a nada (.de .cn .it .ru .es .co .ar .br …) Credibilidad? A qué Imperio le inquieta ser creíble? Necesita es control, de todos y en todo nivel (para ser imperio, no para gobernar su país, claro).

    translate: Google… sorry!!!
    My answer : I admit that my reading is sometimes too strict, that is extreme positions strikes!

    1. ” U.S. citizens against ” Fortunately always be unpopular wars . However it is a vacuum for general data ( thankfully) .

    2. ” Citizens unpopular Congress ” Sad would be reversed : see a weak government that is unable to defend a people required .

    3. ” Congressional approval by Constitution ” : That is the imperative of democracy : the military and the executive does not think sends not only governs . When that did not fall into authoritarianism respects errands to collect.

    4. ” without UN approval ” : What danger ! But the fact of acting without UN authority , but the opposite : a world government , to audit , monitor , control and decide for all , is the least need.

    5. ” Defense Syria with all available ” : The question is : who attacks, too? Especially if it is not planned to run fast and clean , if complicated much … repeat with a big?

    6. ” Minister : two options : surrender or defend ” is their right , at least attempting a dignified exit .

    7. ” anti-ship missiles ” USA has the anti – gun anti – ship missiles more advanced . Syria may have up nukes … if there is, to attack ( is the order that came in a while ) that will not stop .

    8. “Syria attacked Israel … ” : Although some scenarios are plausible , spending in other remaining energies is internally weak finish .

    9. ” If Syria attacks Israel … ” But this would be a cause to attack … ie cause this to happen will benefit USA , I see this as logical not to attack against .

    10. ” Hezbollah help Assad ” : Another illogical , because if Hez the attacks (a USrael ) have the excuse to destroy them faster.

    11. “Syria is an ally of Iran ” That is why we must attack ! I’d USA (not me) .

    12. ” USA + Russia relations ” Today not before perhaps, but the survival of Russia is more important than bad relationships by third parties .

    13. ” USA + China Relations ” : Similar to the above and even less complicated. Risks are worth taking ( say USA)

    14. ” rebels tests were ” acts of war Fortunately not be determined by what civilians think , do, say , or ” show ” . For that there are agencies that collect information.

    15. “nonsense employ chemical weapons regime ” : The question , among several possible , is: Assad how much control your army? .

    16. “America not Saudi intermediaries to topple Assad ‘ : Are you suggesting that the U.S. Army is a mercenary army waged war for oil ? Serious accusation !

    17. ” a war very, very serious ” : That an ex – commander says it is at least serious : Is not every war is something of extreme seriousness, they are weighed with full sanity and responsibility all causes , consequences and alternatives before starting ?

    18. ” Financial markets negative impact ” depends on who you look at , for others is good : more guns are sold , the more oil revenues unaffected stolen most expensive collections … it all depends.

    19. ” oil prices ” : Bonanza for some of LatAmérica , among others … and clear its major oil companies are gringo ! Sad, but true .

    20 . ” The White House and Al Qaeda ” : One of the best ways to win wars has been to consolidate mercenaries in other countries. I hope they are not turning the pot again and again all begins ( Big Business the arms ) .

    21. ” innocent civilians ” collateral damage to be assumed before the danger of appropriation of chemical weapons by the rebels and then come to be used against the West on our own soil ( say USA) .

    22. “America Lose Friends and credibility ” : Friends ? if you only have those who are in the same : . uk and . fr, of other allies who never really oppose anything ( . than . cn. it . ru . ‘s . co. ar . br … ) Credibility ? Which Empire is concerned to be credible ? Need is control of all and at all levels ( for empire , not to rule his country , of course) .

    Syria is the bad fighting the bad. Even the women & children are involved in the fighting. They carry ammunition & messages as well as on the front line. It’s the West that can’t bear to imagine women & children being involved.
    If the West supplies the rebels with weapons they will be using them against us later. The Regels want to gain control of Syria so they can start a War with Israel, backed by Iran, then the rest will join in. Egypt was supposed to as well led by the Muslim Brotherhood, but that’s been put on hold.

  • Jeff

    This is a extremly bad idea! If the US attacks Syria the whole United States will be in jeporty of being attacked. We don’t want another 911 on our hands.
    Listen to the people of the United States,and say out. It is sure to be the beginning of the end fro the US!!!! Please let’s not get involved!!!!!!!! NOT A GOOD IDEA!!!!!!!!!

    • illuminati

      You really still think that 911 was ”terrorists” fault?

  • peace angel

    America is famous for starting wars based on lies, propaganda and misinformation. Obama does NOT decide anything. As a 30 year CIA and community organizing puppet he has been tasked to start WWIII and the Bilderberg group who bought him a 48 million dollar retirement home (compound) last year in Hawaii expects him to do exactly that and try as he may, he has failed and refuses to make a decision either way.


    AND the whole world knows it except the ostrich nation of the banana republic of America, but as Micheal says everyone knows about the bad behavior of our entertainers and Hollywood morons.

    There are many active duty military and DHS whistleblowers who are risking their lives and imprisonment to alert the brain dead nation that the economy will be collapsed in September or October of this year and clearly THIS is the excuse they will use to do it. They are saying that they will blame a banking VIRUS on terrorists or Syria or who the hell ever and that will be the last time Americans will see their money being housed in banks.

    America is Over no matter how it happens, IT IS THE PLAN. Obama is just a distraction to the plans of the machine running the world.


    The world has been on the verge of global conflict for a long time now.
    If this isn’t the trigger something will be and soon I imagine.

    Over amount of years U.S. prospered with the highest public debt. Without wars on it’s territory and so on.. Economy collapse is inevitable. To hold it over, U.S. needs to seed unstability and war in other countries. To keep ourselves stable country, to keep dollar high value (but without gold – dollar is just a paper). We intentonally made that “Arabic spring”, changed management of all those countries. Who didn’t agree – was murdered (like Kaddafi), who did like Egypt – was changed by our man. Now we expect another wave of economical collapse. We NEED to seed fear and distable east. And it’s not Obama! He’s just a puppet.. We made hugest and well trained army with the top weapons on other countries money 😀 But It won’t last forever…

    why cant they send in navy seals/sas take out assad and force a change in the governing body that way.

  • Sarah the Syrian

    You are probably the most ill informed person to write an article on the war going on in Syria. It is very clearly you have absolutely zero understanding of Middle Eastern, let alone Syrian politics. Firstly, the current regime in Syria has been the main protector of Israel and Israeli borders, they will never attack Israel. Secondly, Syria attack America? Is that a laugh, and how do you propose Syria will ever achieve that incredible feat, and why would they? Syria protects Israel and the US knows that, this is why Obama’s speeches always reiterate limited and targeted strikes in Syria, but not to over throw the regime. Bottom line is it is not in America’s and Israel’s interest to overthrow the regime, and Syria’s threats to attack Israel or other American allies are just that threats, empty threats to add fuel to this propaganda war the West so loves to participate in.

    My second point is your ridiculously ignorant statement about the rebels being “rabidly anti-Christian, rabidly anti-Israel and rabidly anti-western”. Mate- I suggest you find another career path in writing fairy-tales stories. Have you ever heard of the term propoganda? The Free Syria Army is a non-sectarian opposition. They are not rabid anything, they are fighting for the true cause of freedom from fear, freedom from corruption, freedom for religion, justice, equality, all those beautiful slogans Americans sing about at every basketball game. This is a war, and a propaganda war at that. Which means that those rabid factions committing human rights atrocities are operating independently yet under the opposition’s banner. And why would they do that you ask? Because they, such as the Al Qaeda linked Jabhat Al Nusra, were created by the Assad regime during the Iraq insurgency to create instability. So to clarify, these are Assad-loyalist factions created and operating to infiltrate the Free Syria Army, independently and discredit the the revolutionary cause.

    World War 3 is a bad idea
    American government should really think about it
    It would be literally the end of the world

  • Reasonable posts

    Why would we start a war? It’s no use and all it is going to do is kill people. Like, what good did it do in World War I and World War II? People are just stupid enough to start a war.

    If a war started off through the americans,i wonder who would ally with them… Would the british wage war war with or against them.

  • Ed Hartwell

    The U.S. Shadow Govt insists America be at war. It makes a bunch of money as long as we keep making weapons and sending our young people to go lose their limbs and lives. It is actually, the poor young people who do the shooting and the dying. We fight because it makes us money. Why else would we do this? Think about it. Look around. Absolutely no Americans want to fight a war. Especially for another country. That does not matter. Our troops are pretty good at following orders. I insist we leave now. We’ll get the planes lined up and one will take off every hour on the on the hour until all Americans until all Americans come home. No more troops, military dependents, or contractors. Americans could, of course, be there, but it would be at other than the American Taxpayer’s expense.

    I think it is time we spent $1.12 Billion on American Domestic programs, NOT Afghanistan security. I don’t mind anyone taking up a collection for that, or doing a car wash for other countries. I just want to keep our money in America with us. — Ed Hartwell, U.S. Navy (Retired), American Taxpayer, Voter, Veteran, and an American for America.

    Wars and rumors of Wars. God is Supreme and he said it will happen. I fear not as God is with me always. To live is Christ to die is gain. Greed of mankind causes Wars. Peace will not come until Christ returns. Until then, are you one with faith in Jesus. Do you believe in what he did for you? We are all sinners saved by grace. God loves you so much. You are precious in his sight.

    The Muslims already started WWIII, but they call it Jihad. They’ve been working toward this for a long long time now. When their Caliphate collapsed early in the 20th century the Muslim Brotherhood sought to re-establish it and then to conqueror Europe, something which Islam had failed to do previously. They are now well on their way, with millions of settlers now in Europe. Once a conflict with Russia emerges we can expect mass muslim violence within Europe in an effort to destroy it from within. Once they have conquerored Europe, America is next. They think that with Europe they can then conqueror the rest of the world, having achieved significant arms including nuclear weapons. The rules for their Jihad are contained within the Koran, something everyone should read today to gain an understanding of just how savage a political group can be. Yes, it’s just as bad as the Capitalist’s agenda for a global police state.
