Anyone that wants to act before proof of any crime having been committed. Is obviously a misguided psycho/Sociopath who believes all the hype created by western warmongering media/political creative deceit.

... Actions speak louder than words.


The best thing for you to do is act on changing your name to Kerry Obama McCain! I wish you could see the action I am giving you with my middle finger.

War always fixes things doesn't it Veritas, not like talking. WAR!! Killing people always helps the situation that is why there is no legal recourse for people who commit murder/s. You really are a Richard.

Peachy - the only thing McCain can agree with Obama about is bombing another country - who poses no threat to the USA - and Obama, our "peace monger" who would rather negotiate all the time than go to war, the one who won the Nobel Peace Prize, is leading the pack on this attack. Meanwhile, the American people and most of the world are screaming, "No, No, No, do not do it."

Many Jews here in the US don't want this to happen... They have contempt for Netanyahu & Jews are hardly one big happy family. .. Bibi doesn't represent them. They're a part of the 75% of Americans opposed to this madness.


Then why don't the "Temple congregations" of NYC march in unison down Fifth Avenue ( led by Jon Stewart)with their banners , signs and megaphones deploring Bibi, the Levinses,Schumer, King and the other "learned elders of Zion" on the war-making committees and boards of the US House and Senate?

)WW2(Cyclon-B),[Zykl on-b)]was synthezied by German organic chemist as a pesticide to control the epidemics of Typhus. It is of crystaline form and was used at the work camps and prison camps in Germany and Poland for use as a fumigant of personal articles. It was never used as an extermination weapon. Hitler specifically forbade the use of Sarin and Tauban as a weapon of war. Thirty-thousand tons of these deadly chemicals was dumped by the Allies into the Baltic in 1945. Germany is now attempting to recover these deadly chemicals, according to David Irving.

McCain is still living in the darkest corners of America's ugliest past when he should have much better views on life just for the fact that his enemies gave him a second chance to be alive,they could have easily disposed of him like a piece of trash that he realy is.


The reason that he was spared is because his father was Adm. John McCain,Jr.--the US Admiral that ordered the Naval Board of Inquiry coverup of Israel's attack and attempted sinking of the intelligence ship, the USS Liberty. The Liberty crew had detected Israel's massacre of Egyptian POWs.

When crimes against humanity are reported, no sane nation can sit idle. The questions asked are: 1) What did you do to punish those who committed the hienous nerve gas massacre? 2) What did you do to to prevent it recurring again? So far nobody has answers. When nobody takes initiative, USA is the only nation that has the capability to take initiative. Actions speak louder than words.

We the SHEEPle of ther U.S. will follow the BLIND Shepherd Obama no matter where he takes us. The whole Syria issue is like a melee, in which no ones knows what is really happening and is willing to take a chance on the peace of the world, by putting it in the into hands of outright amateurs like Kerry and Obama. Both are highly incompetant fools.

time to write HR and Senate.

People of the world - wake up! The US is not the enemy. Israel is not the enemy. Al Qaeda is not the enemy. The true enemy of all mankind is the globalist elite; the world bank/corporate entities, military industrialists, and Illuminati operatives that strive for the New World Order in which they own everything and the rest of us are only pawns. They grow stronger every time we point our fingers at each other, and laugh all the way to the bank everytime we attack each other.

Does Obama really want to protect American citizens ? Medical incompetence/malprac tice in America kills 800,000 people per year, so why doesn't Obama shower American hospitals and pharmaceutical companies with cruise missiles ? Why this incessant obsession with killing Syrians when so many American lives could be saved right now ?

youtube John Kerry speech in 1971 to senate committee regarding Vietnam. His country are warmongering terrorists - HIS WORDS!!! Hypocrites

All this is a tug of war between team US - Israel (hence UK saying hellz naw to being involved) & Iran - Hezbollah.

US funds the rebels, and the other side is funded by Iran & you know who.

This was a very carefully planned tactical move by the US, they did not want an outright attack on Iran but now they will have a much better foot in the region in case they decide to go to war. Israel has a massive grin on its face right now by the way and the US just might end up finding a convenient reason to jump into Iran soon.

I just feel for the Syrian people stuck in the middle of all of this.


Richard Wooden 05.09.2013 12:52

I am in awe that our U.S . lawmakers have considered a request from President Obama to violate International Law by attacking and murdering innocent Syrians with a purported measured cruise missile response. Have these geniuses considered if Syria responds in kind by defending itself the consequences.
