We need an American general with some big balls to throw a coup d'etat on Obama and the zionist puppets in Congress.

W e true American Patriots will be so happy to watch as ALL the zionist traitors and evil banksters/criminal animal believers of the devil get tracked down and ARRESTED. Plus, it will be so much fun to watch all these evil men and their wives and families spend the rest of their lives in prison and to watch some of them, like Obama, McCain, Hannity, Kissenger lined up against a wall and executed.

T hen we'll be free.

We Americans do not want war in Syria and those of us whom know what Obama has been doing despise him. If somehow Obama's smuggling of Libyan Weapons to Saudi, Qatar, and Turkey via the CIA could be exposed to the American people they would be furious of his actions and that he has supported the atrocities and mass murder of Alawites, Chritians, and Kurds. Somehow the American people need to be made aware of what Obama has done and what he is attempting to do. His Al Qaeda Rebels have been caught in Iraq and Turkey producing Sarin gas, it is almost a certainty they were the ones that launched the Chemical attack.

Americans have no say in the foreign policy of “their” government. After the 9/11 coup d’état and the accepting of the so called official version of the events the USA is an occupied asset of the global power elite.

It was the terrorist rebels that had used chemical weapons, and that the U.S. had colluded with them in it. It's a MYTH that we have voting power. Representative democracy is NOT a democracy! Our so-called "representative s" only represent the parasitic elite class, and the money interests. In their eyes, we are only serfs to be fleeced. It's time to show them that there is no such thing as royalty, and take back our world from the capitalists, or the authoritarians, if you prefer.

This Obama Admin. does not represent the American people-time to remove his support in the Mid-Term elections-this is what these gutless war-mongers understand!

Righ t is might and not
Might is right.

"Only the people who stand to benefit financially from this war want it. The people who have to pay for it, the people who have to fight it, and the people who have to live with its consequences don't want it."

& quot;How many of these war millionaires shouldered a rifle? How many of them dug a trench?
How many of them knew what it meant to go hungry in a rat-infested dug-out? How many of
them spent sleepless, frightened nights, ducking shells and shrapnel and machine gun
bullets? How many of them parried a bayonet thrust of an enemy? How many of them were
wounded or killed in battle? "
War is a Racket

""We have enemies around the world that need to understand that we're not going to tolerate this type of behavior."" ;
How many countries have CW and BW around the world?
How many countries have used chemical weapons?
Why the cruel and inhuman behaviour of Dictator Asisi of Egypt is acceptable, not only acceptable but "honored" with $12.8 Billion so quick aid by well known ally Saudi Arab?
When there is no clear and obvious evidence of using of CW by Assad Govt. why there is so hurry to make such decision of attack, while UN also warn?
Where is moral compass, what footsteps we left for coming generation to "follow"?

The struggle between people and the hatred amongst them is being nurtured by zionists parasite. It is zionists clique that is turning people against each other, zionists savage don't want them to have peace.


.. .you have no idea what you're talking about, do you? This article is about the American public's opposition to the Senate's approval of punitive strikes.

As suming you're accusing the U.S., allies of Israel, of warmongering, the point of this article is to declare the opposite. Congress and the Peace Prize Laureate are the ones crying for war, not us.
