Glenn: This week America lost superpower status

Amidst reports that Syria has agreed to a Russian proposal to turn over any chemical weapons in the country to international control, Glenn opened the radio show this morning with a bold declaration: “This is the week that America lost its superpower status.”

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“We may have averted catastrophe,” Glenn said. “Well, I mean, let’s put it this way: The Russians, who thought that Vladimir Putin was going to suddenly step in and be the savior, all of a sudden Vladimir Putin’s like, ‘I’m your man. I’m the superpower.’ Notice that Vladimir Putin now looks like the superpower? He looks like the guy to take on and fix the world?”

Considering all that has transpired over this last few weeks and months, it is hard to believe Vladimir Putin would be the one to emerge from this mess looking like the real leader. But what does that mean for the U.S.?

“When I saw the story that Putin came out and said, ‘I just was wrestling a bear here about ten minutes ago, after killing a polar bear… I called up Assad and I said, Hey! You’re gonna give me your chemical weapons.’ And he said, ‘Okay, dude.’ …I thought to myself: A, we’re done as a superpower,” Glenn explained. “He has just put the final nail in the coffin… Somehow or another Vladimir Putin and Russia are the lone superpower in the world. Because I don’t know if you noticed, but the chairs just switched at the table. Vladimir Putin and Russia is the leading superpower in the world.”

It remains to be seen if Syria is serious about relinquishing control of its weapons or if this whole thing is just a charade. But assuming the reports are correct, Russia certainly looks like the hero here.

“They dictate the terms. They create the peace. They do all the ones we’re supposed to be doing,” Stu said.

“We have lost our superpower status this week,” Glenn concluded. “Write it down in your calendars because this is the week that America lost its superpower status.”

    America has been losing super power status since the years this cat has been office. Started on his appologetic tour of 2008 I think.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    We lost our status as a super-power the day Obama entered office and declared that he would begin his first apology-brown nosing tour around the world.

    All that has been achieved this week is to make it official.

    So now because of Obama and his supporters we look like war mongering morons while Russia looks like a peace loving country. Thanks liberals!

    Obama and Kerry certainly look bad, really awful, actually, but fewer than 10 percent of the public supports intervention. The other 90 percent doubtless transcends political and ideological divisions. Thus it’s kind of silly to suggest “his supporters” are to blame for the potential blowback and to call them war mongers. 

    To me, Obama is no better than Bush on so many levels. But don’t forget which party started the last two wars, one of which has become the longest war in our nation’s history.

    Ok point taken about not calling all you guys war mongers but what was Bush to do when Bin laden drove three planes into buildings make him supreme leader of the world? You can make a case against the war in Iraq but not hunting down Bin laden.

    I agree, for the most part. And I think just about any president would have gone into Afghanistan in the wake of 9-11. But the “global war on terror,” and everything it entails, from the expansion of the national security apparatus, to the trillions of wasted taxpayer dollars awarded to multinational defense contractors to supply the material to blow up and “rebuild” the Afghan infrastructure, to torturing untold numbers of combatants, to the fear mongering and the jingoism imbedded in our foreign and domestic policies over the last 12 years– it all could have been different. Should have been different. Of course, it wasn’t and isn’t different, so I am not necessarily losing sleep about it all, but at the end of the day, for whatever it’s worth, I think a different administration, one without Dick Cheney (former Halliburton exec) calling the shots, one without such strong family and business connections to the saudi royal family and the oil industry, would have prosecuted the war differently. Who knows, maybe it would have been worse. Hard to imagine, but maybe…

    Interesting – while a Republican may have been in the White House, Congress was run by the Democrats. Bush couldn’t have started a war WITHOUT Congress being behind it.

    At least Obummer didn’t execute an executive order to bomb Syria.

    All of you are ridiculous… Yes we have a moron as president, but most americans showed who we really are by declaring that we, as a people, did not want to intervene in the syrian fiasco. It was the politicians, the arms corporations, and big oil that was pushing for this war to happen.

    HayMrkt if you are talking about one of those wars being Iraq….well, your guy was “bringing everyone home” years ago and ran part of his first campaign off of that platform AND shutting Gitmo down.  (yeah…..a man of his word.) Also, MOST people wanted to take out Iraq at that point.  (and still do) Bush had to go war. We didn’t start that war, we fought in a war that we got pushed into when they knocked down our buildings and killed over 3,000  Americans…..Pretty much someone announcing they are starting a war with you. At least Bush didn’t need to run with his tail  between his legs like a whipped dog…..

    Glenn talked about this scenario weeks ago, saying that his source said that war was not the issue, but the “peace”…and who would hold the reins when the dust settled.  The only difference is that he speculated that China, holding our debt, would be the one to say that the US dollar was no longer the world’s currency…but is this really any different?  The carousel is in motion…the puppet president has done his job…and Soros grins contentedly, thinking, “Everything that has transpired has done so according to my design.”

    Glen this is all going to Bible prophecy the king of the North Russia against the King of the South America This is why Obama thinks he is Better than God and when he was whispering and was heard on tape telling Russia that when he was re-elected he would be working with Russia this now proves what he truly is! When JFK told Russia to pull their Missiles  out of Cuba Russia did because the WORLD was afraid of the United States but Obama has turned this Great Nation now to a WHIMP!

    Maybe you should pay attention next time. Have you not heard of “New world order?” It is not about who is the big boy on the block anymore. It is all for one and one for all, if you don’t comply with the rules you will forfeit your you acting position in the grand scheme of things. Russia did not make anybody look like a lesser player they were just the friendlier nation to Syria to obtain a diplomatic resolve. Stop spreading propaganda.

  • http://www.speakthewordnow.com Karen Rose

    No I don’t think we lost our status seat in the world. Syria has agreed to a Russian proposal because Russia knows what we have and Syria is afraid to be bombed by the US. Also the middle east people in several nations, do not want any chemical weapons blown up into their faces, from a war happening. No one knows where those chemicals could fly. Who in the world would want that wickedness to happen. All I know is that I am out of here in the first load up!

    Another fact for those who are brainwashed by the “state ran sites and media”. Bush had thirty nations with him, the UN, the Security Counsel and the Arab league and all of congress!!

    JERUSALEM, Israel — While stressing his skepticism, President Barack Obama said he will seriously consider Russia’ dramatic proposal to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons.
    “My intentions throughout this process has been to ensure that the blatant use of chemical weapons that we saw doesn’t happen again,” Obama told PBS’s Gwen Ifill in an interview Monday. “If, in fact, there is a way to accomplish that diplomatically that is overwhelmingly my preference.”
    Russia’s foreign minister made the proposal and Syria quickly welcomed the idea for the international community to collect and destroy Syria’s chemical weapons.
    “Syria welcomes the Russian proposal out of concern for the lives of the Syrian people, the security of our country and because it believes in the wisdom of the Russian leadership that seeks to avert American aggression against our people,” Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem said.
    While some see Russia’s diplomatic proposal as a ploy, others see it as a way for President Obama to save face and avoid taking an action that’s increasingly unpopular with Congress and the American people. CBN News Mideast Bureau Chief Chris Mitchell offers his analysis on CBN News Channel Morning News, Sept. 10.
    The Russian initiative could help Obama get out of his promised attack. But Washington is skeptical of the Russian-Syrian proposal. U.S. officials believe Congress should vote to keep the pressure on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
    “It’s clear that this proposal comes in the context of the threat of U.S. action and the pressure that the president is exerting, so it’s even more important that we don’t take the pressure off and that Congress give the president authority that he’s requested,” Deputy National Security Advisor Tony Blinken said.
    The Senate decided to delay its vote so it can consider Russia’s proposal.
    In the meantime, Israel has distanced itself from the Syrian civil war and the U.S. buildup. But Israel could face retaliatory attacks from Syria in case of a U.S. military strike, so the government is taking no chances. 
    The Israeli army moved an Iron Dome anti-missile battery to a hill on the outskirts of Jerusalem, marking the first time an active missile defense system has been deployed in the Jerusalem area.
    Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said earlier that Israel is ready to deal with the consequences of a U.S. military strike on Syria. Israelis are still lining up for gas masks.
    For now, the world is waiting to see who will make the next move.

    This situation highlights the difference between a reactionary and a leader.  The President is reacting not leading.  He allowed Putin into the mix.  Here’s an example of how it will go, using these lines from the movie “The Ten Commandments”:

    Nefritiri: Do you hear laughter Pharaoh? Not the laughter of kings, but the laughter of slaves on the desert island!

    Ramses: Laughter? Laughter? My son I shall build your tomb upon their crushed bodies. If any escape me, their seed shall be spattered and accursed forever. My armor! The war crown! Laughter? I will turn the laughter of these slaves into wails of torment! They shall remember the name of Moses! Only that he died under my chariot wheels!

    Ramses then goes on to be decimated.

    Does the President hear the laughter?

    Obama has planned and staged this since the day Valerie Jarrett took office. Remember when Obama whispered to Putin he “couldn’t do anything till after the election?” This has always been the plan. Subjugate America to the will of its enemies and collapse it from within under its own corrupt weight. We have a suicidal president at the wheel driving full speed over a cliff, and no ones doing anything to stop it.

    Glenn concluded. “Write it down in your calendars because this is the week that America lost its superpower status.”

    Right: the fact that the U.S. spends more on arms and the military than the next 16 countries COMBINED doesn’t exist any more.

    The fact that it was an American, Sec. of State Kerry, who came up with this idea, didn’t really happen.

    I believe that’s what Obama wanted as part of his plan to transform America. He perceives the US as inherently evil and flawed and now he’s getting his way. This is all by design. This is because he’s black and we all know it and he knows it – fear of being called a racist and white guilt. Look where it has gotten us.

  • Resonantg

    What we are witnessing from Obama is the weakest foreign policy performance since Prime Minister Chamberlain came back from Berlin promising “Peace in our time”.  The democrats have not produced a president strong in foreign policy since Truman, and even he pissed that clout away in Korea at the begging of the United Nations.  Of course, Putin looks grand and powerful.  What has he got to contrast with?  Possibly the weakest president since possibly James Buchanan.  He’s sure blowing the doors off of Carter for shear magnitude of uselessness.

    “The facts are irrelevant. It is just part of an ongoing onslaught against the Obama Administration and the Democrats in general. The kind of propaganda used by Glenn Beck requires that his target audience never listens to any narrative that is critical of or counters their own prejudices and worldview. He has to fill the space in which that kind of narrative arises in order to inoculate his target audience against it. I call this narrowcasting. His target audience must reject all other media sources as part of “the liberal media” conspiracy. It is a matter of rubber-stamping his target audience’s group-identity and political affiliation. The actual content is irrelevant and can change from day to day, contradicting and reversing itself, and even making no sense at all. All that matters is maintaining the “them v us” division.”

    Glen, I hope you read this please.  Not too long ago, BO, was talking to Putin, and said some things with the mic being on and not knowing it.  My thought of us losing super power, was in the statement BO said that day.  Wait till he’s officially elected and then he can bring his word on the promises.  What I see now, is BO is fulfilling those promises now, and purposely gave our Super power away that day. But this Syria thing is part of the promise. He’s pulled so much BS and is still in office.  WHY? Remember he was primed to be president.  I saw right thru him when he ran the 1st time around. I saw right thru his lies then, and I see it now. He brings much shame to the White House and our country.  He is the works of evil, and I’m not afraid to say so. No matter what we the people do, or say, he blatenly  (SP) does what ever he wants and they have been blowing us off all his yrs. in, under or around.  BS artist.  He is deliberately failing our country. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see it. People take the emotions out of the picture and look at the picture for what it has been.

    No reason to get upset. We knew this guy was the ultimate token from the get go. I mean, what country elects a ‘community organizer’ as president, someone who’s never had a real job? I just pray that he doesn’t get us blown up before he leaves, and that enough people who voted for him, see the error of their ways by the next election. Also, that the republicans stops trying to find nice compromise candidates that can’t get elected hall monitor at a family picnic. So I just keep praying, and look for a candidate that can get this country back on track, so we can support him early and not draw blood like last time.

    It isn’t just his fault though. We are so separated and can’t agree with each other on any topic anymore that it is barely any unity to the states. If we had joined together and had people in office that we placed there that really could speak for us, then maybe this wouldn’t have happened.

    I mean let us be honest here… The blind are listening to Putin though the facts you can see show that he had control over Assad. His ‘peace’ is really just him pushing Russian power into the Middle East with a bit more ease now that he looks like the white knight. He doesn’t have to secretly give weapons and help produce WMDs for them anymore. He can just place his own men there and bolster the forces there instead. This is just a mess…

    The only reasons for America losing is superpower status is because of it’s declining values, such as the divisive issue it’s takes against Russia and a damnable fate of homosexuality beyond our time.

    But other than that ‘Glenn’, don’t you think that it was “America’s action-to-strike” that gave Putin/Russia the-opportunity to be in such a ‘savior to-a-syrian strike’ status?  Duh.  If America hadn’t pushed (or still is) towards a strike, then no-Russian-hero solution exists/existed.  You’ll have to really ‘layout more of your points’ for Russia here Glenn.  But I would surely start with the Values-Agenda.  You’re Roman-Empire is and will collapse as every historic refefernce states from the collapse of marriage, family and necessary-relationship between that of men & women.  The entire existence of the ‘perfection to the continuation of human l-i-f-e’ and human h-e-a-l-t-h that can exist ‘within your own mind and mental delusion’, how-it-all-relates-to-nature, and America’s continuing ill-Value-Infecting of world influence is what will
    “collapse-America-upon-itself” as a-superpower.  Don’t you just love observing the-values of mental-power&destruction America creates with it’s newsmedia-brainwashing of homosexual-relationships upon American citizens….? and it’s only taken “just a few years” for Americans to accept this as a destructive fate of influence!  Homosexuality is-Worse-than Abortion&MauryPovich-parental-neglect combined!  Russians know the value of need 100% for the relationship to that of men & women… and Islam will never falter because of it’s backing towards this same value…. forever.  America is two hundred and thirty some years of “immaturity” and lack-of-development towards that of greater relationships of the cores of human life and perception.  America will cower and about-face to Assad’s rule and do nothing other than what the Syrian people can do to reign in a democratic homeland.

    The “World’s Smartest Man” clearly never studied game theory (deterrence theory) and couldn’t win at chess to save his life – yet, he is our commander-in-chief. Kinda scary, isn’t it?

    If Syria turns over its weapons to Russia or the UN, then Putin is the winner and Obama is a putz.

    If Syria drags out turning over its weapons and Obama threatens again to attack, he will be positioned as the guy who “didn’t give peace a chance”. And if he then fails to attack – it is a double loss.

    Putin is now saying that the deal is off unless the US agrees not launch our “unbelievably small” punishment attack or interfere in the civil war.

    If Obama does attack it will be with 70%  of the US opposed to him doing so.

    So, Obama went from painting himself into a corner to letting Putin open a door for him that led him onto a tightrope that Putin can shake, cut or extend. Idiot. The world is a lot tougher for the community organizer than he ever thought it would be.

I’m not looking to blame anyone in all this mess either.  It is what it is.  Now if one should read the for what it is, and determine how much has come true for themselves, and relate it to where we are in todays world.  It’s going down, and I’m not here to argue my point with anyone else either.  I believe, I watch, I listen, and I see for myself what is really going on.  Take out the emotions, I’m not bashing your loving BO that you may have voted for either.  Step back and see just where our country is heading.  But then God did say in the end of times there will be reprobate minds.  And I can see that too…how sad.  United we stand Divided we fall people.   God will be stepping in real soon, whether you want to believe it or not.  And then most will get their answers, I don’t plan on being here….:)

    The ex-KGBer really put the bag on Obama, and not the first time – or the last is my guess. Putin enjoys making the president of the United States look like an inept bumbler, and this President can’t seem to keep from helping him get the job done.

    I can’t stand this president, anything he says or does, and I am certainly not on board with any strike plans for Syria.  But I have to disagree on this one.  I feel that if we ultimately do not strike Syria, and Assad agrees to hand over his chemical weapons, it is because Russia has recognized that a U.S. strike would  be devastating to the Syrian government and thus, Russia’s major interests in the region.  In other words, as much as I oppose military action in Syria, it could be the case that the threat of military action was sufficient to prompt a diplomatic solution, even if it is Russia’s proposal.  What was the alternative? Syria certainly wasn’t going to hand over their weapons to the U.S., and we were merely days away from yet another military intervention.  Besides, it only makes sense that it would be Russia to offer the solution that least damaged its interests. Russia blinked because the U.S. touched a sore spot.  I fail to see how this could possibly be the week we relinquished our superpower status to Putin.

    Pretty sure we lost our status as super power the day Clinton took office. It was at that point that the role of our military changed. The US military no longer is here for our protection and defense. At Clinton’s office the military became a police force and a force to spread the US’s values to the rest of the world. Every President from Clinton has continued along those lines. The US has to remove its military from police actions within other countries and focus on things that affect it and its allies, use the saved military funding to shore up our economy, and leave the politics of attempting to convince other country’s that the US’s values and way of life are the best to the politicians not by military action.

    Ummm, Iraq did not knock down the Twin Towers.  If we are being accurate, many of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudis.  And as terrible as the Taliban (dictatorial third world sheep herders) are, it was not they who were responsible for 9/11 either.  Al Qaeda, who was responsible for the attacks but were not in Iraq pre-2003, was in Afghanistan, and we should have been able to root them out without being there for twelve years.

    Actually Vicky, your entire post is irrelevant. All of them that you made on this site are irrelevant.  You come in and sling mud at your obsession Glenn  Beck, and then insult his audience with pure left wing nonsense and hateful dishonest claptrap because you have nothing to contribute that requires more than a few brain cells to formulate.
    Narrowcasting? You are narrow minded. Your Karl Rogers is a left wing ahole with ideas that are no better than yours, but he has managed to suck you in. That is easy to do with people who lack the critical thinking skills needed to determine that they are being had by pseudo intellectual gobblety gook. No one is buying it.

    America lost its superpower status YEARS ago.
    When your president becomes an international laughing stock and has shoes thrown at him…that’s your first hint.Try to imagine Reagan having shoes thrown at him, or even Clinton. It would have never happened. But when we elected—and then RE-ELECTED— that chimp from Texas that was the final moment that sent our reputation went down the drain.
    After Bush’s re-election, a British newspaper famously ran the headline: “How can 59 million Americans be so DUMB?”
    You have to admit: it’s a legit question.

    We crashed the global economy. We’ve bundled wars. We have millions of homeless. We are best known for ignorance, obesity, and school/workplace shootings. In that order. 

    For decades we were able to skate by on the greatness of our grandparents and great grandparents, but that crap is over.

     Certainly no one believes the utter nonsense that spews from your pie hole, Victor.
    The US may spend more than other countries, but there are countries who spend a larger or similar percent of their GDP on military. North Korea ranks 1st with 4,711 soldiers per 100,000 people, while the US ranks 45th with 507 per 100,000. Russia has fare more Nuclear Arms than we do – and that’s before they talked Odumbo into decreasing what we have.

    Do you really believe that what Kerry passed as a brain fart was something he seriously thought about? He said it in jest and then discredited it as a viable plan. He doesn’t think it is doable, but Putin will talk Obama into it just to stall for time.

    What’s the matter, your wife kick you out of bed and now you have to take it out on the sane world? Your hero the Zero making a bigger fool of himself and a lesser hero of himself? You aren’t happy unless you can grind your teeth and sneer at Conservatives. Get lost, idiot.

    The phrase “Zeitgeist” has been hi-jacked, in my opinion.  The word itself comes from the German language.  It is now being used as a “trend” word by special interest groups and often attaching it to the global government movement.
    “Zeitgeist” is really much more than that.  It describes a force which can influence an event, it includes a special period of time which stands out from the rest of the time.  It might be a reflection of one thing, showing an image in a looking glass which can be influenced by different situations.  What we think we see, lies in the eyes of each beholder.
    There is a saying: ” No man can surpass his own time. ”
    Therefore, “Zeitgeist” is just a reflection of what happened
    during that time and has nothing to do with the utopian “Venus Project nor the “New World Order” movement.

    It seems Prof. Rogers imagines us all to be approximately 19 yrs of age with brains still in the developmental process-this isn’t a homework assignment, and most ADULTS have there opinions formed by life experience, not by cajoling or commandeering guidance of a professor. With all due respect, just because someone disagrees with your ideology does NOT mean they haven’t considered all sides. Or do you really think that the human brain is so lacklustre in its assimilation of information, that the mere consideration of ‘your’ opinion will magically change the beliefs, thought processes, and ideology of non-believers?- come on now – that’s so simplistic its comical.

    IN the last hour that has changed, Putin has tied to the deal, that all countries must renounce using force against the Assad Regime. This will be a no go for many countries, such as Israel.
    The real condition that should be made is that Syria must sign on to the CWC, or suffer the violent loss of their chemical weapons.

And there was NOOOOO reasons why we went to war where we did????? Really??????? And let’s be clear here….Al Qaeda was hiding EVERYWHERE…. let’s put an emphasis on HIDING too….so according to you, we should have gone to war with the Saudis????? And I agree with the 12 year thing. Obama ran most of his first campaign (and his second campaign too) on getting everyone home. Remember? I sure do.(and closing Gitmo. Which is still open and running.) and lets start a war with syria and it’s bush’s fault and I’m a racist right?

    How has that changed how Obama looks? He got ‘scooped’. Putin’s objective is to save Syria from attack. I don’t think he cares about the chemical weapons. His suggestion was just a means to an end. The process of planning, entering Syria, especially during the internal warring, will be extremely difficult. Who will be sent in from the UN? Will the chemicals be taken to Iran for disposal? Russia? Somewhere else we trust? It will take months? years? Is Assad or his military going to identify where all the stashes are? I doubt it, and bet that Putin doubts it too, but he will get what he wants without having to get his hands dirty. I don’t think anything is settled with what Obama is going to do. He still wants to strike Syria.

    I am so sick and tired of everything that has transpired under Obama’s watch. He is the worst of the worst.

    I see my state of Texas being changed before my eyes. today I read about the homosexual agenda in San Antonio becoming a reality. This has to stop. Our state is better than this and we are beginning to smell like those states east of the Mississippi.

    If Mr.Smitherman is serious about secession from the Union, I’m all for it. We don’t need the rest of the country if the country is hell-bent on going down the tubes. I’m sick of my hard-earned tax monies going to the Fed and to RINO politicians.

    We don’t need the rest of the country.
    We have everything, including petroleum.
    We could build HUGE, ARMED borders to keep the illegals out.
    We could expel the Muslims….good, bad or othewise; they do NOT belong here.
    We could be very selective about just who we let live here.
    We could have open-carry.
    There would be much more breathing space for small businesses without the bureaucratic red tape.
    We could have our own currency based on both silver and gold.
    We could have an economy based on Petroleum and
    Agriculture…what else would we need?
    We have firearms factories moving here from the East.
    We have the largest military bases in the country.

    Yes, it would be tough in the beginning but it would not be impossible. Texas is full of good, God-revering people with a strong sense of ethics, morals, discipline and intelligence.

    I want to believe that the US will survive the foibles of the Left but after tonight’s Presidential address on Syria, I’m about to give up hope.

    A country for Americans who want God’s blessing back might just be called The Republic of Texas and this time, for keeps.

    Where the hell have you been heidi?  I thought the whole Iraq debate was decided about long ago.  I’ll even give you a Fox News article as proof that there was no legitimate reason to go into Iraq: http://www.foxnews.com/story/2004/10/07/report-no-iraq-wmds-made-after-1/

    The stated reason to go into Iraq was not because of Al Qaeda or 9/11, that was NEVER the reason.  The reason given by the Bush administration was threats of use of nuclear weapons, and we all know that there never were any WMDs.  And what jb meant, heidi, was that if you thought we were going into Iraq to attack the guys who caused 9/11 then we should’ve also invaded. I mean, seriously, use critical thinking and reading comprehension.  There is a reason they teach us these things in MIDDLE SCHOOL.

    Nope. That’s not what I’m saying at all.  And before I go any further, please don’t think you have me pegged as some Bush-hating, race-baiting liberal.  For one, race has nothing to do with anything on this thread, and second, I’m actually pretty conservative/libertarian, and can’t stand the “it’s Bush’s fault” mantra Obama and his followers have been chanting for 5 years now.  It’s just that your facts are wrong, and facts don’t change according to whether a (D) or (R) is in front of your name. 

    Bush didn’t go to war with the “wrong” people.  He knew what he was doing in going to war in Iraq.  WMDs were a pretext for war, and it turned out there were none, and I believe he and his decision makers knew that.  The fact is that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.  That is something that almost no one disputes, and I can’t believe you are implying that it might as well have been a missile with an Iraqi flag painted on it that flew into those towers 12 years ago today. 

    And if you believe that Al Qaeda was hiding everywhere, which they may be, or at least in a lot of places, hen you wouldn’t so much as question a military invasion of, well, everywhere, would you?  Bad guys are all over the globe.  Does that mean we send 100,000 troops everywhere, or that we should if we had the ability? And no, there was no evidence of Al Qaeda there prior to our destabilizing that country.  We created an opportunity for extremists to come in and create chaos and a breeding ground for terrorists. 

    As far as war with the Saudis, I’m not saying I would have supported that, but there is a laundry list of strategic interests that would keep us from attacking them.  Also, I don’t believe a few individuals’ terrorist acts can justify the invasion of an entire nation unless the acts were state sponsored.  So no, I am not saying we should have gone to war with the Saudis.  In case you haven’t noticed, the Saudis are far more important globally than the wasteland of Afghanistan.  And incidentally, Afghanistan and Iraq just happen to sandwich Iran, which is one of the major threats to the U.S., so maby it suited the U.S. to have a major military presence on both sides of Iran as a deterrent.  The problem is, a lot of blood and treasure have been lost as a result. 

    I just wish you’d educate yourself instead of repeating the most flawed, simplitic, and baseless arguments espoused by hawkish neocons over 10 years ago.

    The sad fact is that we don’t have enough troop to go out and fight all the “bad” that is in this world. I can’t say I am for any war though because honestly, I can’t send my sons to fight and die on foreign lands for a cause I don’t believe in. And as I educate myself on the facts of the war that we have had, is all that I find is opinions and false facts. I don’t even think we (the people) even know exactly why and all the circumstances that went along with it. And by all I mean I don’t think the government shared even 1/4 of what they knew so that we (as a nation) could make an informed decision to go to war in Iraq/Afghanistan. I am not saying that I would jump off a cliff if the bush administration said to. I am not so naive as to think that bush did everything correct. I think, in a lot of ways, the government does a lot of smoke and mirrors to mislead the people and even to stir them up. But I do believe there is an argument there that is not baseless. Your “sandwich” theory seems to be pretty good. so why could we not just go straight for Iran? (and yes. I am sorry I was so rude earlier and I am asking for information.)

    I’m saying if we should have gone to war at all in 2003 (and we shouldn’t have) it was with the wrong people.  I’m also saying the war in Iraq was exactly what the Bush administration wanted, so from the admin’s standpoint, it was not with the “wrong” people.  There was a goal in mind.  It depends on whose perspective we are using in defining “wrong people.”

    We had to go to war after 3,000 plus died. Al Qaeda picked a fight and than ran and hid…..in caves for the most part. So are you saying we shouldn’t have gone to war really?

And where do you go to fight Al Qaeda when they are all over that region? Where do you take the fight?

    heidi7, re-read the other comments on this thread.  Again, distinguish between what was proper (rooting out Al Qaeda in Afghanistan and hunting bin Laden) in 2001 vs. the entirely different conflict in Iraq in 2003, where Iraq and Sadaam had nothing to do with 9/11.  Yes, our people died on 9/11, that’s what Afghanistan was for.  It did not justify Iraq two years later. And you can’t just lump them all into the category of “The War on Terror,” which is just a catchphrase to use in stirring up support for ANY military strike, particularly in the Middle East.

    There is no way Russia took the US superpower, Putin is a showman.  Russia is a country that is eating itself and it population.  There is no solidarity with the Russia’s they all live in fear of either the Government or the Mafia.

    Obama was wrong to declare a possible airstrike to soon, it was indeed an amateur move, however I think choosing a peaceful route, even if its a Russian plan, was the smart thing to do and saved the US’s ass of making themselves a mocking internationally.

    So I think to declare ” America lost its superpower status” is propaganda and spin, Glenn you really are becoming quite the entertainer.

    In response to your comment below asking for information, all I can say is that it takes a lot of reading, and you have to scrutinize the sources.  I don’t consider Alex Jones or most other fringe individuals to be, in and of themselves, credible sources.  I believe the overall picture of the last ten years, my perspective on the direction of the U.S., all the reading and listening I’ve done, leads to the conclsion that the Iraq war was the result of lies.  I was skeptical even then as an 18-year-old, and I believe I was right to be.  I wish I had time to write a lengthy report and cite sources, but I just don’t. 

    As far as why we couldn’t just invade Iran, my opinion is that there is a broader strategy in avoiding a direct conflict.  Iran has strong allies in China and Russia, which means it’s difficult to do anything directly without riling them up, as we’ve seen in the Middle East chess game over the last decade.  Iran has a relatively strong conventional military, which means a war with them would become very unpopular at home as more and more U.S. soldiers lost their lives.  They would be overmatched obviously, but we would still suffer more casualties than in Iraq or Afghanistan.  Those are just the two that stand out to me, but if I had more time and a more suitable forum, I think there would be many more reasons.  In short, the easier and more practical route was to “sandwich” them militarily and keep applying diplomatic pressure via U.N. weapons inspections and sanctions. 

    Anyway, it’s been a great discussion, but I’m afraid I’m gonna have to hang it up now!

     Hopefully the successor knows what he is doing.  Anyone with a brain would learn what the Tea Party stands for before criticizing them.  They want the government to abide by the Constitution and do what the Constitution says that the government is empowered to do!  If you want other stuff like 1) President doing whatever the hell he wants; 2) mandates to make states do things; 3) All this other crap like healthcare!  You don’t care about the Constitution which is the document which defines what out FEDERAL government is allowed to do. I could go on for pages why you are an idiot but it isn’t worth my time.

     I agree with you that we are not Saints!  But I truly believe that we want to be saints.  I really don’t know if Pres. Obama wants to destroy this country like a lot of people claim, but his actions seem to indicate that it is the ultimate result.

    I have never in my 58 years on this earth seen so many Americans express hate or animosity towards each other.  There is only one catalyst that I can point to and that is the President.  If anyone thinks that race relations are better now (after a lot of people voted for a black man for president) they are blind as a bat.  Things are atrocious.

    New work? They have had these chemical weapons for a while, so it’s not like a sudden scurry to hide something underground. They could be hidden anywhere, including underground in the desert, in a cellar, in a garage, which structure can be seen from space that will say “here it is”? Do we know yet where Iran has their deep ground secret enrichment site yet? We have been looking carefully for a while for it. Do we know where any of Syria’s chem weapons are?

    Yes but moving them from storage to burying them will require more work to bury them in the earth.

    Why move them? If some are buried, and some stored in some other cover – what are the UN inspectors going to do – search every building in the country? So they find some and not others.

  • Todd A Scheller

    Do you have any idea what being buried will do to the barrels? They can’t stay buried long with out being in something to keep them dry, even Syria gets rain. NOt only that the storage barrels or vessels must be maintained, or they leak.

    Although they are probably not as sealed and preserved as those used for burying spent nuclear rods, I would bet they are protected with something to keep them dry, even if the dry desert sands aren’t very corrosive (they have preserved dinosaur bones from millions of years ago). Don’t forget that there are sure to be containers stashed away in other places that do not have to be moved, and will never be found by weapons inspectors.

  • Richard Barnes

    So Russia with the one hand tries to make a deal so the west won’t bomb Assad and while people try to get on board with them, they stab the west in the back by making a deal with Iran to supply S-300‘s. The issue is that they are forgetting that if Russia starts to send S-300‘s to Iran; Israel at the very least will likely attack the shipments. It’s not just the US that won’t like that sale. That could be the trigger that sets this whole thing off and in a big way. Russia simply should not take this action, BUT they are and I really doubt that they will pull back from it. The clock is ticking down in the Middle East. It just seems that we have no shortage of bad decisions built upon the dried bones of former bad decisions. As Iran looks to avoid getting their nuclear program bombed, they buy weapons that will almost certainly result in military conflict, and Russia who people just stated were brilliant political chess players just turned over the chess board. Perhaps the players don’t understand that this is NOT a game of chess!

    Where did I indicate that they could not be buried? I indicated that doing such would leave a mark that would be extremely visible.
    If desert sands are not corrosive, how were the 500 rounds of chemical weapons that were found in Iraq degraded so much as to be unusable?

  • Todd A Scheller

    I did, and you have been comparing Apples and Oranges. Do you remember the 500 rounds of Chemical weapons that were found buried in Iraq? What condition were they in?

  • Watch it

    They could be anywhere.

  • Watch it

    Todd, your comments indicate it with your questions about heat, pressure, rain, etc., as if that would make it such that they wouldn’t or couldn’t be buried. Your questions indicate that you are assuming they would be buried right in the sand, but I tried to tell you that they could/would be buried in some sort of protective structure. Of course if they were exposed they would be damaged. I didn’t think I would have to spell it out to you. What is with you these days?

  • Watch it

    I have not been comparing apples to oranges. I am not comparing anything! It doesn’t matter what condition some of Iraq’s chemicals were in (I am assuming that you are referring to the 500 rounds of chemical-weapons shells containing “degraded” mustard or sarin nerve gas that were produced before the 1991 Gulf War). To equate that with those in Syria assumes that they were stored in the same manner when you don’t know that.

  • Todd A Scheller

    Since when is a Dinosaur bone like a barrel of Chemical weapons? Kind of like Apples and oranges. The rounds themselves were degraded, not just the gas. The rounds were buried in the sand in the middle of a DESERT. Was that not how your were suggesting Syria might have already hidden theirs? Do you know that they did?
    Where do you think Syria got a goodly amount of their chemical weapons from?

  • Todd A Scheller

    No, my questions are for you to take those factors into consideration as well, as will Syria if it decides to bury its chemical weapons stockpiles.
    How does Syria have time to build such a structure? It takes 21 days for concrete to dry enough to support traffic on a US highway. Yet you want a structure, underground, that must support what ever earthworks you are going to place over it, hold the chemical weapons, protect it from aerial attack, and then be accessible later on. That kind of facility takes YEARS, not months to build. Do you not think a Satellite would see this work going on in the Desert, where there is no flora or fauna to hide the work? Would it not be easier for us just to send them Cheyenne Mountain? The time frames that Syria has does not fit what you are suggesting.

  • Watch it

    Todd, the aside about the dinosaur bones was speaking to how dry the desert sands are. I was not comparing dinosaur bones to barrels of chemical weapons. It doesn’t matter if Iraq buried theirs directly, unprotected, in the sand – it does not mean that Syria did, and no, I was not suggesting that Syria did do that, I said they would probably be in some sort of protection if they were buried, while some may be hidden in other structures and not necessitate being moved. Go back and read what I wrote.

    It doesn’t matter if Syria got some of their weapons from Iraq. They got more from elsewhere, and made a lot of their own from Fluoride that they bought from Britain.

  • Watch it

    It isn’t about what they will use for missiles, my contention, like that of Dempsey, is that they will not target the chemicals, as I explained already..

  • Watch it

    As for your first paragraph, that is what I was trying to make you understand. You seem to assume that these factors wouldn’t have been taken into consideration.

    Syria has had as much time to build structures as they have had to procure or manufacture the chemicals. They don’t have to create some huge fancy complex if they have the stuff scattered around the country. They may not have been concerned with very long term storage since the stuff degrades in a short time, and were only concerned with hiding it.

  • Watch it

    Ciao

  • Todd A Scheller

    Granted they have had the time to build them, Just like they had time to build the reactor in Deir ez-Zor, how did that work out for them? Having the structures, and keeping them safe from aerial attack is two different things. To do the later, you need to limit access to the site, which is bad juju when dealing with Chemical weapons.

  • Todd A Scheller

    If the storage facilities are not in populated areas, why not target the chemicals? They are a purely military target. Kind of hard to use Chemicals that went BOOM.

  • Todd A Scheller

    Deserts are funny environments, at night there are streams where none exist during the day. So Desert sands are not as dry as you think. Deserts actually have shallower ground water, that other areas.
    Putting them in protection will not protect them from Tomahawks, or GBU-28, they are designed to penetrate those types of structures. When 5000 lbs hits from Several thousand feet, there is not much that will stop it. Ask the Iraqis in the Bunker at al-Taji Airbase on 28 February 1991, well you could had any survived the attack.

    “A secretive Syrian military unit at the center of the Assad regime’s chemical weapons program has been moving stocks of poison gases and munitions to as many as 50 sites to make them harder for the U.S. to track, according to American and Middle Eastern officials.”

    “U.S. and Israeli intelligence agencies still believe they know where most of the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons are located, but with less confidence than six months ago, U.S. officials said.”

    “Unit 450—a branch of the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center that manages the regime’s overall chemicals weapons program—has been moving the stocks around for months, officials and lawmakers briefed on the intelligence said.
    Movements occurred as recently as last week, the officials said, after Mr. Obama said he was preparing to launch strikes. ”

    “The U.S. is using satellites to track vehicles employed by Unit 450 to disperse the chemical-weapons stocks. But the imagery doesn’t always show what is being put on the trucks. “We know a lot less than we did six months ago about where the chemical weapons are,” one official said.

    “Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the U.S. military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, has said that President Barack Obama directed him to plan for “a militarily significant strike” that would deter the Assad regime’s further use of chemical weapons and degrade the regime’s military capability to employ chemical weapons in the future.

    But officials said the U.S. doesn’t plan to bomb chemical weapons sites directly because of concerns any attack would disperse poison agents and put civilians at risk.”

I will never understand how liberals can be so ungrateful to this nation and its people, to the point of trying to destroy it. Modern liberals have been in power three times in the last 50 years – Carter, Clinton, and now Obama, and all three times we have been in perilous straits regarding foreign affairs. This country can’t stand another liberal administration, so enjoy this one – it will be the last time liberals hold power – they can’t maintain this country’s status on the world stage, and they can’t fix the economy. Carter was a disaster, and Clinton only had a marginal economy because of the two previous conservative Presidents.

    So far Obama has not fixed one damned thing. Not a stellar record by most people’s measure. 

  • TheMaskedMarauder

    Let’s remember that the UN sanctioned those wars, and while you are at it don’t forget that Congress put their seal of approval on both of them. Are you saying that when your country is attacked and 3,000 plus people perish in the attack that we should have done nothing in response??? 

    You can’t really be serious.

  • TheMaskedMarauder

    Liberal spin that has been repeated hundreds of times, yet remains completely irrelevant. You should refresh your memory and you can start with the UN Resolution 1441. The war in Iraq was also agreed upon by Congress. There was also financial support for Al Qaeda by Saddam Hussein prior to 9/11 not to mention his open celebration of the attack. 

    Saddam was a bad guy, and he deserved to go. The Taliban are bad people and they should also be gone – AND they helped many Al Qaeda fighters train and maintain bases in Afghanistan, or do you not remember that either. 

    Perhaps it is time you studied the facts.

  • TheMaskedMarauder

    So you assume that what you know is true? Suppose for a moment that when Bush warned Saddam to allow UN Weapons Inspection teams to inspect his WMD stockpile – (we knew he had gas, he used it on the Iranians and the Kurds) – are you saying that the Syrian supply of gas munitions didn’t come across the border from Iraq? Are you so in the know that you can prove that they didn’t get stuff from Saddam? 

    I don’t think you can prove it. Furthermore, I don’t think you know what you are talking about and you have let liberals tell you how to think instead of investigating this stuff on your own. 

    You should read the UN resolution 1441 – you might find it educational. 

    The main reason we did not crush the enemy in Afghanistan was to avoid killing the civilians, and Obama let Karzai set the rules of engagement so our troops have their hands tied. We can’t win under those circumstances and it has nothing to do with how tough the enemy is – we are our own worst enemy. 

    A lot of the stuff we have seen lately about conflict in the middle east has brought up Russia and China’s ties to Iran – they have only held influence with the Iranians since the ouster of the Shah. Iran used to by a US ally. Syria is a puppet of the Russians, and this scheme for removing their WMD stockpile will tell us whether we got manipulated by the Russians and Syrians. They have a week to turn over the list of all weapons to the UN. After that, there is a timetable to destroy those weapons. Personally, I don’t think the report will be accurate, and I will be surprised if they get rid of anything. 

    Obama got played, and so too have the American people.

    I am beginning to think that the brutal dictator of Syria is the lesser of two evils 1.)  Sat Sept 14 On radio I caught some of the coasttocoastam  program last night with John B. Wells as host ,they had a terrorist expert on supposedly verified  that obama brother,uncle ,grandmother were extreme radicals of Islam religion and obama want help the Syria radicals to turn Syria  radical Muslim nation to join the radical Muslim caliphate !!???? This explain why obama always want to step in with perfect timing in helping and aid to only when the extreme radicals in a revolt like Libya,Egypt ,and pull our troop out  early in Iraq radical  are in the driver seat !!!??? Now Russia don’t like too much for the radical Muslims in taking over that why  they prop up some dictators as a blocking movements !!! Don’t forget Russia had a lot of problems with radicals Muslim in southern Russia where they kill over 200 Russia school children !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Question now obama change his mind he don’t want to replace Syria dictator regime now and only want Syria not to use Chemical weapons and turn them over to U.N to be destroy ????  another whopper by obama ?? Then why obama  are you aiding and sending arms to the Syria rebels if ,we reach a agreement for Syria dictator to get rid of his chemical weapons ????  Our President pull the same back stabbing trick with the Libya President , he got rid of he chemical weapons,stop seeking nuclear weapons, he even spill the beans on Pakistan scientist aiding countries  to become nuclear ,aiding us in capturing of radicals terrorists and heads up on their plans of attacks and what this backstabbing obama do was promote  a revolt in Libya and the dictator was kill in back of a pick up truck !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Now obama is still hell bent on helping the radicals rebels in Syria  to take over ,looking for any reason to aid our enemies who declare war on U.S with our military help using our air force !!!! Russian Putin is blocking this with his Chemical weapons proposal !!! But obama trying any means now he sending arms to rebels so Syria will become part of radical extreme Muslim caliphate !!!!  I hope someone can verified the facts of the coasttocoastam programs !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I hope you all notice in any of these revolts when the true freedom fighters,for rights and freedom,constitution are in the driver seat obama does not lift his little finger in helping them !!! But if extreme radicals Muslims who declare war on U.S and want to kill all infidel obama is biting at the bit for any reason to send our air force to  help the extreme radical Muslim regime to takeover !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Anonymous

    History is almost repeating itself unlikely allies of World War Two  are coming together again this time to defeat radicals extreme Muslim which are a off shoot of the Nazi of World War Two, The Russian President and people are for this and U.S citizens for this !!! But obama seem to be in with the radicals extreme Muslims the only difference !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

     Never mind answering the phone in the middle of the night ,we have a naughty lying little boy who cannot answer a simple phone call without lying !!!!!!!!  Our President made a mess with his statement about the red line !! Then say it was U.N  ,the world,Bush fault when he made the mess trying to copy the big boys and he wouldn’t not admit he say red line !!   Then like a lower life form in committing a crime with gun not knowing he kill someone ,wounded ,or miss he wipe off his finger prints off the gun  and give it to congress !! To let congress be the sap or fall guy with the gun which he started & cause  the whole mess with gun (red line) matter what the outcome !!

    Or obama could be very  devious he remind me of JR of the TV series Dallas only difference he is black and for real !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Putin when he call Kerry and obama liars he might be right  on the money ??? We have not forgotten obama Benghazi whopper to U.S citizens and congress !!!!!  Question why would the Syria dictator use chemical weapons win he was winning the war without them ?? When the,U.N. inspectors was just station about 5 miles from the attack site ??  Many people believe the March chemical attack was by the rebels ??  Putin could be right about a false flag operation by the rebels and we all must question anything info obama administration give to congress & citizens about chemical attack when come from obama when he have earn  the name the one and only whopper President !!!!  Now the reasons for false flag by radicals Muslims  1.) to get U.S military assistance to overthrow Syria install radical extreme government to join the Muslim caliphate a enemy of U.S and free world  2.) To give obama cover the spot light would be on chemical attack and not radicals Muslim genocide of Jews and Christians  in Libya ,Egypt,Syria  and obama won’t have to answer for his silence on genocide by the Muslims and helping arming  these revolt movements that declare war on U.S ,and performing genocide and obama might be doing his part playing up chemical attack so he can arm our enemies to help  then in forming radical Muslims caliphate and get the spot light off his scandals !!  To Democrats U.S congressmen & senators you must be real proud of yourself of supporting and backing obama when he sending guns and ammo to groups who declare war on U.S ,that have kill U.S troops & civilians ,to help them perform genocide of Jews and Christians etc. I call  this treason and traitorous to our country ,citizens and to our brave troops !!! I say impeach obama and dismiss any congressmen or senators that back him or vote to fund him in arming our enemies !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Question why obama sending arms to Syria rebels when Syria dictator say he hand over chemical weapons from the side of his mouth he say he not for regime change ????  Does obama really want radicals to take over Syria ,or to continue carrying out  their genocide of the Jews and Christians ?????????????????????????????

  • Anonymous

     Maybe Putin is right about obama jumping the gun or of snap judgement without thinking all having all the facts !!! Remember the stupid and racists Cambridge policeman !!!!  All facts obama gives on the chemical attacks most likely be Syria dictator not beyond a shadow of doubt !!  How can we blindly believe in  President obama when told us the whopper of Benghazi video ,play of words, half truths, fudge info or slant it these could be also in play with obama BS facts on chemical attack  so he have a ruse of excuse to aid the rebels ???? In installing a radical extremists 

  • Watch it

    So they have to keep making it to replace the outdated weakened stuff, so they put it in whatever storage they have made already. No need to apologize. ;-)

  • Watch it

    Of course they have, just like Iran when they built that underground uranium enhancement complex and we never picked up on it and still don’t know where it is.

    I would think that when Syria builds a department store or a some other structure they don’t advertize that it has chemical storage area below it.

  • Todd A Scheller

    The one at Anarak, Arak, Ardekan, Bonab, Bushehr, Chalus, Darkovin, Fordow (underground enrichment facility), Isfahan, Karaj, Lashkar Abad (Isotope Separation using lasers), Lavizan, Natanz (Actual Fuel enrichment plant at 33°43′24.43″N 51°43′37.55″E), Parchin, Saghand, Tehran, or Yazd. Those nuclear facilities that no one knows about, all those in Iran? Funny even Wikipedia has them listed.
    We already know of FIFTY Syrian storage facilities, and some of the fixed production facilities.

  • Watch it

    Ooops – you didn’t list the one they don’t know the location of. We also can’t be sure there is more than one whose whereabouts we don’t know.

    We know about 50 storage facilities in Syria, do we know where they all are? Do we know where they have been moving everything for the past month or so? Do we know for sure where every single site is? No, we don’t. There is word that some of the chemicals have been moved to Iraq and Jordan – not yet confirmed. It is dangerous for us to assume that just because we don’t know of the existence of something, that it doesn’t exist.

  • Watch it

    I am not talking about these that everybody knows about. I really didn’t want to get sidetracked into details that are not germane, but since you brought them up …..

    According to Wiki, those are not all nuclear weapons uranium enrichment plants. I noticed at least one is listed as an ore mine (Saghand), Parchin is a military complex, all buildings at the former Lavizan-Shian Technical Research Center site were demolished between August 2003 and March 2004 did they start rebuilding?), Karaj is the Center for Agricultural Research and Nuclear Medicine, Chalus has been determined not to be a nuclear site, Bonab is supposedly an Atomic Energy Research Center investigating the applications of nuclear technology in agriculture, Anarak is or has a storage site for nuclear waste … http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_facilities_in_Iran

    What do you think of this? (not that I want to veer off in another direction, just curious what you think):

  • Todd A Scheller

    Nor did you. Nor have you proven there is one we do not know about, yet I was able to prove many that we do know about. These are not small facilities that it is easy to hide. They are also very unstable as evidenced by the explosion at the Fodrow facility.
    If we know about the FIFTY facilitates we know where they are. I am willing to bet that the movement of the chemical agents is known. Still waiting for proof of all these claims to what we don’t know.

  • Watch it

    Of course not (I don’t have to prove it) – because we don’t know where it is. That is the whole point of this discussion that we side tracked away from – the Syrian chemical issue. If it were provable they would know for sure where it is. Of course it is easy to prove what is known and documented, but not knowing where something is doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Remember…. if a tree falls in the woods, and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?

    What we have been discussing is all part of speculation – where the chems are how they might hide them.

    Have we beaten this issue to death yet?

  • Todd A Scheller

    Thus why I marked the ones that were enrichment facilities, some of them are reactors, which send Uranium for enrichment, some are mines, where the Uranium comes from.
    As to the links you provided, the first says that the IAEA keeps a close reign on Iran and their enrichment processes, meaning they know where their facilities are. The US is a member state of the IAEA. So this kind of disproves your theory.
    The second one is exiles talking about the building of a facility, that prior to that was supposed to be secret. How is that helping your theory? If people are talking about it, then it is no longer a secret.

  • Todd A Scheller

    If you are making a claim that there are unknown facilities, yes you must prove that there are. If the Syrians dig a hole in the desert, can it be seen by a Satellite that can read the headlines of a newspaper from space?
    FYI: The UN just confirmed the use of Rockets for the chemical agents, not mortars.

  • Watch it

    Reuters:”In 2010, when the group said it had evidence of another new nuclear facility, west of the capital Tehran, U.S. officials said they had known about the site for years and had no reason to believe it was nuclear.” HAD NO REASON TO BELIEVE – does not mean it’s a fact. Speculation. They now are given more evidence by the NCRI which the IAEA is going to be investigating. So you see – they never know everything.

    You said “..the first says that the IAEA keeps a close reign on Iran and their enrichment processes, meaning they know where their facilities are. ” That is an assumption. Just because the IAEA keeps a close eye on them (or thinks they do) does not mean they know everything. Quote from that source: “It is always possible that Iran is secretly enriching uranium somewhere not known to the IAEA.”

    Both articles indicate that the IAEA doesn’t always know everything. Remember … if a tree falls in the woods …?

  • Watch it

    No Todd, I don’t have to prove they exist. The fact that it is POSSIBLE that they exist is the argument, and that doesn’t have to be proven. Prove that they don’t exist then … oh, you can’t.

  • Todd A Scheller

    So if they knew there was a facility is 201 that existed west of Tehran how do we not know where it is? the US knew about it years prior to Reuters, or did you miss that when you copied and pasted that?
    No, that is not an assumption: “However, Iran’s ability to break out or sneak out of its non-proliferation obligations is hampered by an inspection regime that keeps extremely close track of Iranian uranium enrichment facilities.
    Herman Nackaerts, the deputy director of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and head of its Department of Safeguards, told Al-Monitor during a visit to Washington that “we would know within a week” whether Iran was diverting uranium from declared sites and seeking to enrich it to weapons’ grade level.” Facilities Iran has to reveal to the IAEA. What is the next sentence after that which you quote?
    If Iran or Syria dig a hole in the desert, can it not be seen from space, by a Satellite that can read the head lines of a newspaper?

  • Watch it

    Yes, they knew where it was, but they did not necessarily know what has been going on there – the info that the NCRI brought to them they did not know.

    If Syria digs a hole – it could be anything. The IAEA already has shown that it doesn’t always know everything.

  • Todd A Scheller

    So when they dig the hole, it draws attention, and then it gets watched to see what gets taken to the hole, that is how they learn where they are.
    The NCRI brought to them the existence of a facility they already knew about, nothing new there.

  • TheMaskedMarauder

    How about this you guys – we nuke the known facilities thus denying them access to their facilities, and stockpiles of weapons grade material for the next thousand years while the radiation makes it impossible for them to approach the remote areas they have hidden their sites in? We might not get it all, or get the facilities directly, but making it impossible for them to get at them is just as good isn’t it? Then Obama can cook up a cover story about our sympathies toward their nuclear accident… “The people of the United States wish to express their sympathy at the losses incurred because of the catastrophic nuclear accident that has occurred at Iran’s nuclear weapons development sites”.

    Things are seldom what they look like. Now I think we all need to get a grip.  What difference does it make that Putin made some shifty, deceptive deal with Satan. That is what it is. Many of us know that he is nothing but the father of lies which is what this Syrian deal is.  That’s why I know the US is still the Super Power because many of its people are a moral people. It’s America’s people that keeps the nation in super status. Russia would not recognize immorality even it wore a red hat and that’s the definition of “Exceptionalism”

  • Watch it

    The NCRI brought them info about what was happening there that they DIDN’T know about – so much for watching everything and knowing everything all the time.

    As I said, and this supports, “They can’t and don’t watch everything all the time. Yes, they knew where it was, but they did not necessarily know what has been going on there – the info that the NCRI brought to them they did not know.”

    If Syria digs a hole – it could be anything. The IAEA already has shown that it doesn’t always know everything.

    show me the vote for war … no vote was ever given …. Now young man go study history and look at where this leads . Police Actions , Use of Force what ever you want to call it .. What congress did was pass of the responsibly to the president and the UN , Instead of actually declaring war or not … Saddam did far worse things than stock pile weapons .. We had a great case of declaring all out war .
