… And Goodbye To All That

Thanks for introducing me to Khalifé’s music. Listening to this now: "Marcel, Rami & Bachar Khalifé.” I must have lived in this world in other lifetimes. This shit talks to me like a lifeline wrapped around my inner core.

Oh, jesus. Yeah, you need a break. But we’ll be waiting after you’ve had a chance to clear the airwaves. Meantime, enjoy yourself.

Taxi: From a Grant Smith November 25, 2015 email: "Yesterday the Israel Lobby Archive released files obtained from the FBI under the Freedom of Information Act in 2013." Smith's article on Smith's list of FBI docs confirming this: Spread far and wide. ;-)

The UNSC Resolution names amongst these terrorist groups the Al-Nusrah Front, which Israel and the treasonous US neocons back.

"UN Backs Russia's War on US-Backed Syria Terrorists" November 24, 2015 "UN Security Council resolution authorises 'all necessary means' to be used against groups associated with al Qaeda By Alexander Mercouris "November 24, 2015 "Information Clearing House" - "RI" - Russia’s diplomats have been as busy as Russia’s military. "They have now obtained UN Security Council as well as Syrian government approval for Russia’s military campaign. "They have also got the UN Security Council to scotch the myth of the “moderate jihadis” once and for all. "Back in September, when it became clear the Russians were intending to act in Syria, Russia Insider predicted the Russians would try to get a Resolution from the UN Security Council to give additional legal cover for their military action. "This is in contrast to the US, which avoids the Security Council whenever it can, and which usually prefers to act unilaterally without a UN Security Council mandate. "Thus US bombing of the Islamic State in Syria was doubly illegal under international law because it was carried out without permission from either the UN Security Council or from the Syrian government. "Russia's military action by contrast is completely legal. It has the permission of both the UN Security Council and the Syrian government for it. "It took weeks for the Russians to get their Security Council Resolution. This was because the US did everything it could to stand in the way. However, after weeks of hard work, Russia’s diplomats have finally got the Resolution Russia wanted. "What changed the position was the terrorist outrage in Paris. "After the Paris attack the French backed Russia’s proposal for a UN Security Council Resolution. At that point the US could no longer block it. The US cannot veto a Resolution backed by its own ally France, especially in the immediate aftermath of a terrorist attack. "Something that suggests some people in the US might be unhappy with this development is the absence from the Security Council table of one person who would normally be expected to be there for such an important vote. "This was Samantha Power - the US’s UN ambassador - a hardline liberal interventionist and one of the most aggressive voices within the US administration calling for regime change in Syria and confrontation with Russia. "Her relations with Vitaly Churkin, Russia’s exceptionally able UN ambassador, are said to be poisonous (see the photo at the top of this article). "It looks as if voting for the Resolution was more than Samantha Power could bear. That probably explains why she stayed away." And . . . more from the same article, which cites the UNSC Resoution: "The Resolution names amongst these terrorist groups the Al-Nusrah Front. "Russia is therefore fully authorised to bomb all the various jihadi groups in Syria that it is bombing. Even the US has been forced to admit - at least in the Security Council - that the talk of Russia bombing the wrong people - the “moderate jihadis” - is nonsense." COPY THIS for posterity. People forget that Putin's Master's Degree was a law degree in International Law. His doctorate was how to bring a totalitarian state into the 21st C with natural resources. He is light-years ahead of Obama in brains and training.

Name one good thing the meritocracy has done for the US since 1980. Just one.

No shit. I've been to Russia; spent three months there while it was still communist. What a marvelous country. Ditto the people. Crimea is paradise.

The ascendency of rabid pro-Israel Jews in US politics over the past two decades has produced this state of affairs.

"[...] photos of dead, mutilated, dismembered, charred, squashed, disemboweled children. No well-balanced, healthy person could collect and enthusiastically, uninhibitedly disseminate such images." Tell that to Holocaust museums, the UN court of justice, or to any officials charged with cataloguing genocides like the Armenian one. The sick puppy is this degenerate (Wictor) who can come up with these arguments and this tripe.
