Concur. Putin sees this as a opportunity and he is not wrong. And I can see a lot of countries coming into the play as this unravels. I think the WWI analogy is quite apt, but I think some folks dismiss it as an empty cliche. For me, it is not empty.

The GOP (with rare exception) are cowardly eunuchs.

I don't believe it has to do with being cowardly...It takes millions of dollars to get these people into office...That money didn't come from John Q. Public...They will appease the money people to stay where they are at, with very few exceptions...

Quite interesting indeed. I'm tending to think the contents of the TeleGraph article is NOT fabricated.

Youtube with Biden warning GW not to start military action against Iran without approval from Congress. If GW did, Biden promised to start impeachment proceedings.

One might ask Joe, “Why not now Joe if your Obozoliar bombs Syria?”

Biden’s “warning” was all about politics and hot air - Democrats looking down on Republicans.

And what will Zero do if US ships are targeted and we start losing American lives?

And if the Russians retaliate and it cost American lives, what is that REALLY to Obama? Even if he gets impeached, so what? He'll still have his millions, his black sycophants, his secret service protection for life, his pension, his medical, his speaking fees, etc. etc. etc. What does he care?

Obama will not let his Muslim brothers fail. If he had to sacrifice all US troops for Allah he would do it in a heartbeat.

"The fact is that the executive branch is weak."

Hardly, it has recently become the most tyrannical branch of the three branches of government our Founding Fathers fought against and debated about after the revolution. The other two branches are just as worthless. Congress does nothing to curtail the Obama Executive Branch abuses of power. The Judicial Branch says Obamacare fines are a tax. Really? Pfft.

Many, many others, including a small dedicated group called VetsCoR, tried to warn against the diminishing balance of powers. Apparently, it didn't matter since all 3 are now about politically correctness.

As VetsCoR and now others are starting to realize, the last best hope for our Republic lies within...


Let the Fedgov know that your State still has certain rights within the US Constitution - study it. It's not only a federal Constitutional matter, it's also built into so many State constitutions, which most people don't even know about. You'd be surprised how many State Constitutions mirror the US Constitution. Of course, states like California and New York just ignore their own Constitutional contracts.

Something else that most don't know: Your local county Sheriff has the authority to enforce State Law over many Fedgov laws, and have authority to RESIST many Federal laws.


Think Sheriff Joe in Arizona. He will not give up his authority to the Fedgov to prohibit illegal aliens coming into his county. The legislation is still on the books. It angers Homeland Security because he keeps busting and incarcerating illegal aliens. Napolitano, Holder, and Obama can change policy, but until Congress passes law that says no more busts (which they've tried), Sheriff Joe will continue.

Last thought: Countless local Sheriffs are now taking oaths and saying they WILL NOT confiscate guns if Fedgov law ever says so. These guys are our last defense.

Screw Syria. It's a civil war. The more they and other Islamist factions are killing each other, the less damage they can do to civilization. I don't give one shit who dies. My compassion only goes so far.

Think Dresdan and Hiroshima during WWII and all the collateral damage there. War sucks, but if war happens than kill them all even if innocents die. Better their innocents than ours.
