We cannot oppose everything America does because their history is bad. One Day, America will revolt against the Oligarchs, their seems to be a wish to overthrow the totalitarian state by members of Obama team, but on the whole the their also seems to be a cow towing due to fear and self interest. I see Obama inching towards war on Syria because if he flat out refused, he would probably be ridiculed. Obama hates Netanyahu, but he fears confronting Israel directly due to fear of AIPAC. If he had the balls to act, he would again the support and protection of the America people, but the Assassins bullet is hard to avoid.

The US government is complex, we know they had a main role in creating AlQaeda but Dempsey seems to be opposing war in Syria. It may be part of a Secret plot to stop CIA control of AlQaeda to give US a break, but maybe im being too optimistic. On the otherhand, how can providing weapons and training to Lebanon and Iraqs sovereign armies be a threat? I think this is most likely a good thing for the two nations who need help to oppose AlQaeda/Nusra/Assir etc. In the end, Defeating AlQaeda (and defeating the CIA controls it) is in the interest of the American people, and the Democrats if they have the vision to realise.

Statements like this have hidden values that a civilian would realize.
Have you ever played the video game Call of Duty Black ops?
This video game demonstrates acts of war that are undeclaired where forces of a Soverign nation enter another soverign nation and wage a Campaign/Mission.

These military acts are well documents from these Special forces/Services that operate these Operations.
Know ing our history and the most recent history enables a person i believe to realize whats happening in the world.

Medi a is lies to us. Media is Propaganda.
Asce rtaining the truth in 2013ad isn't going to happen being Plugged in.

US training means teaching soldiers to call for airstrikes and hide or run as US does now in battle.
