We are all screaming at the Senators not to go to war but when you see them on TV they just keep beating the war drums. They have all gone crazy, it really doesn't make any sense.


Reasons are simple: The US is run by foreign corporate zionist banksters & BO is simply a yellow livered puppet. This cabal covertly (no so much anymore!), controls almost the whole Planet. They are known as the Illuminati & are free masons. Google it & it & as your eyes open to their evil agendas, it will make your blood boil. They speak with forked tongues...

I remember there was a leader of a country who took his country to war against the wishes of the people, and brought utter disaster to his nation.

He and his wife were hanged.
He was Benito Mussolini of Italy.
That was his legacy.

My only question: Was he a recipient of a Nobel Peace Prize too?


Really love your comments Connie!.... So tongue in cheek! Go America Go - RALLY!!! World is behind you!! Get rid of Obombo-Warmongo!

Here we go again against the wishes of a vast majority of people in this planet trying to punish Assad after so many killings have taken place. The Obama administration needs to consider other options with regards to Syria. But for Usa the cold war was never really over.

... 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.


That is why the ordinary Joes' & Jane's need to rally & rebel against these foreigners until America is back in the hands of those who love her & will see she's returned to a pure Constitutional Democracy. Russia & Iceland & now Hungary, threw out the evil bankster Rothschildzionists! So lead on & get rid of these pests & it'll happen globally!

Actually there polls are way wrong about 90% of Americans oppose the war the ration of people who oppose after phone calls to leaders yesterday was 499 to 1 tell RT to check their facts a little better.

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.


I understand that you meant the zionists are trying to divide Amercicans as they're now trying to do in the ME, but Americans feel this is the last straw & it is great to see how strongly they are opposing strikes against Syria! Viva Americans!

Obama is still pushing for the war even the majority of the Americans are opposing it.
What does that tell you about US policies ......?
The thing is Bush has been wanting to attack Syria during his administration. Now Obama fulfill it .....
What does that tell you about the US president?
The decision to invade Middle East has been made eons ago......... Now US is just making it happen

""W e 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?
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?
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"?


Well said Malik!

What is intellectually dishonest.... Refusing to meet with Russian representatives from the Duma is one example. What's clear is that Obama is not dumb but is rather following orders. This can only explain his intellectual dishonesty.


Steven no matter which way one looks at BHO, he is a miserable coward. As the POTUS, if he is being blackmailed or Obama's were threatened, he could've made a plan, no rocket science to that. He sold out Americans for status & the good life. Gutless & yellow as they come & while shaming the US, Obama has shamed Africa too!
