“An illusion is a distortion of the senses, revealing how the brain normally organizes and interprets sensory stimulation. Though illusions distort reality, they are generally shared by most people. Illusions may occur with any of the human senses. Some illusions are based on general assumptions the brain makes during perception. These assumptions are made using organizational principles, an individual’s capacity for perceptual constancy”
Obama is creating another “Illusion” with the civil war in Syria to achieve four objectives:
1. Ease the pressure from the looming fights over Obamacare and the debt ceiling with Congress.
2. Drag Congress into another war and have them share the blame for the many mistakes he has made.
3. Hope for Syria to drag others into the civil war by attacking Israel or Jordan or both.
4. Complete the Progressive-Liberal objective to create a Socialist Democracy to replace our Republic form of Democracy.
Watching the Sunday morning news it was interesting to watch the majority American people and surprisingly the national media, agree that the government has gone mad. It is the first sign of common sense that has surfaced in many years. One thing that is disappointing to me is why the media ignores the parallel of the total failure that Obama and Clinton had in Libya. Now Obama and Kerry are trying to get Congress involved in approving an air attack on Syria that will not only fail but will likely create a war in that region that could kill millions including Israel and Jordan who are allies.
Bush, also a Progressive, proved with his personal war with Saddam Hussein and trying to make ignorant people in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan accept civilized behavior is a waste of time. Obama backed the Muslim Brotherhood control of Libya and Egypt and nothing good has happened so far. Libya is now another Afghanistan and if we stay on course in screwing up everything in Egypt, the radical Muslim Brotherhood will regain control again. Then we will have enemies in control of the Suez Canal and the Straits of Hormuz and really cause shock waves with the price of oil. Amazingly this appears to be Obama’s eventual objective and he knows true Muslims hate all Americans, Christians and Jews.
Trying to understand why Obama and Kerry want Syria, Iran, Lebanon, obviously the Palestinians and possibly Iraq to retaliate against Israel and Jordan is impossible. I personally feel that the long range objective is to continue to drain our weapons arsenal while simultaneously downsizing the military which is scary if true.
It is obvious to me that the Progressive-Liberal Clinton and Obama administrations hated Israel and believe the land Israel occupies belongs to the Palestinians and Syrians. The identical draining and downsizing of the military during the Clinton administration and Hillary’s actions in the Libyan failure and the Egyptian uprising have convinced me that Obama is hell-bent finishing what the Clinton’s started.
If anyone who reads this and desires to challenge my position I will be happy to post your rebuttal unedited on this blog. I have been challenged as becoming more radical in my beliefs when the radical activity is in Washington DC and the majority of Americans really do not even care.
It is apparent that some 90% of Americans do not desire any more war for any reason. That percentage has and will change if we are attacked again but if we keep draining and downsizing the military will we be safe?
A specific concern arises when you recall that one of the reported reasons we were in Libya was to prevent arms that were captured by the rebels from getting to Syria. We were thanked for our help by sacrificing our Ambassador and other brave Americans to being ruthlessly killed by the same people we helped win the civil war. If we fail to support the military in Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood will gain control of weapons far beyond what they obtained in Libya. If we help the same enemy get control of Syria they will have enough weapons to even include control of Turkey, another ally and member of NATO.
This morning the news reports that the enemy we helped in Libya likely has control of over 1100 ground to air missiles we know existed. Can you imagine what the simultaneous destruction and loss of life if this could cause if these were used to shoot down airliners with thousands of people killed. They could target Americans from worldwide locations and make 911 look puny in the number of Americans killed in New York. Hopefully I am wrong but I would be hard pressed to board a flight anywhere in the world next Wednesday or any September the eleventh in the future.
The pressure on Congress to support the attack on Syria might make more sense if these 1100 missiles are known to be in Syria and we know where they are located. If we do know where they are, what is the real reason Obama and Kerry have not already destroyed them?
Some day we will know the exact reason why Obama has purposely divided the American people and caused us to hate each other. Making the United States look like a country of greedy capitalists taking advantage of the poor to the entire world is a shame.
Gaining control of the weak, the poor, misguided youth, Blacks, Hispanics and the naive women was a masterful and peaceful victory for the Progressive-Liberal cause. They have been trying to gain absolute control to destroy the Republic and the free enterprise system for over 100 years. Using Obama like a puppet they have watched him destroy the future of the very people who stood behind his “illusions” of helping them live without working and live happily ever after. Folks, there is no free ride, happiness and freedom if you can’t defend yourself.
Does anyone besides me wonder how many more Americans will be sacrificed before the people who have been brainwashed by the Master of Illusions and laughingstock of the world, wake up and unite?
If Syria has violated international law let the world take action through the United Nations. If the United Nations is not recognized by the United States as the worlds body to control international law why do we waste so much money having them based in America? If Congress allows this action we have violated international law, haven’t we?
