      You are so correct, FFC, they might have believed most people would NOT look at the date so they could get authorization to do something against Russia. Thanks for pointing that out, usually I seek the date but didn't that time.

      Apparently, the US + UN are still trying to figure out how to react. It was just chlorine, (or was it?) I guess the US will do nothing.

      If we do, Russia will step in again.
      Can we risk bad relations with Russia?

        The thing for the U.S. to do is follow our Constitution. There has not been a foreign attack against the US in over a century [see https://www.brasscheck.com/video/the-or … 1-in-1898/ ] therefore our being in some foreign nation fighting is in violation of the constitution.

        Let the world go to hell in a basket is primarily what our constitution say the U.S. is supposed to do in these cases, it is not an attack against the U.S. so let the rest of the world solve their own problems.

            Maybe you should make that a half-hearted agreement Cred. Even as I agree with the premise that it isn't our responsibility to solve the problem, (nor in our best interests to even try - alone), I couldn't find any generally accepted Constitutional interpretations that declared, as The0natureboy did, that our foreign "war" efforts are/were a violation of our Constitution.

            To the contrary, there is one clause that specifically addresses an instance such as Syria. (just find the one that speaks to The Law of Nations) ,

              True, nothing explicit in the Constitution, but if there was ever a theme associated with its creation and consensus of the "Founders" it was the idea of the U.S. avoiding foreign entanglements. In the modern world this may be difficult but I see no reason not to "ride with the posse" (the UN), avoiding the unilateral American involvement of lives and treasure, which has often proven to be more trouble than it is worth.

              How do you interpret the Preamble and second amendment, GA? Defense means a threat has to be against our nation instead of the CIA's interpretation of "national security" but to what is actually the United States as a people and its land's  security.

                The0NatureBoy, since we both know our Constitutional interpretations disagree, I will offer a short answer.

                I believe threats against our nation are much more involved than just an "enemy at our doors," and I also believe that an interpretation of "national security threats" are completely within the realm of the CIA, and completely valid to the intent of the preamble's "... common defense..."

                Specifically to the Syrian component of the thread, and specifically to your penchant for quoting the Constitution - look to Article 1, Section 8, Clause 10, to see how the Syrian problem might be an example of our government's Constitutional authority - relative to authority regarding the Law of Nations.

                  1.8.10: To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offences against the Law of Nations;

                  Where do we find the law of nations? How does it read? What specific clause in the speculation that some nation has done something in another which hasn't been proven as yet? If We The People does't have access to that information thenWe The People have e the right, per Amendment 10, to demand to know the details b before any military action by the USA is taken.

                  The practice of doing stupid things like what happened after 9/11 results in unlawful slaughtering people in another nation who has done nothing. Therefore it behooves the US to get clear knowledge by taking the time to find real evidence as to what happened.

                  So, GA, until Congress ask We The People, who have access to all of the information and not media bought reporting of what the War Mongers want us to believe, what the nation should do (since they are our trustees in service to We The People's desires per Article 6) no actions are to be taken.

                Why "boots on the ground'? Is it because most people in the military are "minorities" who the NWO want to reduce the population of here in the US? That is the only reason I can see for "boots on the ground" but there is no reason for even missiles for nor any other interest in the above war.

            The0NatureBoyposted 22 months agoin reply to this

            9/11 could have only be achieved by internal means, the official report is external but for ...

            For about a week after 9/11 many national news services replayed video recordings of what appeared as an aluminum aircraft entering tower two of the World Trade Center that left its full imprint in the concrete and steel walls, pulverized the concrete and melted the steel with the nose exiting the building without denting itself to disappear in the air without leaving any trace of aircraft on the streets below. The following are reasons I, an ex-U.S. Air Force ADC aircraft mechanic who never repealed his oath to protect the United States and USC from enemies foreign and domestic, recognize were ignored in the “official ‘cover-up’ report.”

            1) Armed fighter aircrafts are always on alert to force or shoot down any airline deviating from its flight plan to the extent required to accomplish 9/11’s destruction governmental intelligence say its had reported would at an unknown time be performed against the USA by foreign entities or entity using aircrafts and president Bush neglected to place all ADC aircrafts to on continued alert until such time the nation was assured the report was false has earns him, as the Commander in Chief, dereliction of duty turned into Treason.

            2) There are no scenarios allowing soft aluminum aircrafts to leave its full imprint in steal and concrete, leave no trace of aircraft wings and engines scattered on the ground near the impact area nor exit the building to vanish in the air without being dented as one video indicated.

            3) A load of aviation fuel in tanker aircrafts does not burn hot enough to cause concrete to pulverize or steal to melt at the impact point, not to mention the floors above that supposedly caused the implosion preventing the leaning top of building two from falling and damaging other buildings, nor below that caused both towers and building seven to fall extremely rapid when wooden buildings usually take a much longer time to fall and do not fall so completely.

            4) Nothing was observed or reported to cause building seven of the Trade Center Complex to explode into flames and implode.

            5) The Trade Center’s rubble was never inspected to determine the cause of the implosions but was hurriedly removed by a contractor.

            6) The content of the ‘Black Boxes’ was never released, no pieces of aircraft wreckage from any damaged causing crafts were ever revealed and no bodies or luggage from passenger crafts was found.

            7) There was a video on YouTube’s public domain available to the general public showing the craft going into the Pentagon I viewed, indicated the craft was a Scud Missile.

            8) Observers of the craft hitting the Pentagon said what they saw was not a commercial aircraft and the video confirmed it to me.

            9) The craft type supposedly responsible for the Pentagon’s damage have engines hanging from their wings that, even with a Scud’s Terrain Following Technology, would have scraped the ground and sucked objects into their engines exploding them flying at impact level of approximately six feet above ground.

            10) There were no wing parts, engines, people, luggage or Black Boxes left at the Pentagon to substantiate it as an aircraft.

            11) The hole in the Pentagon was far to small to hide wings and engines allowing only the piece of aluminum found which was not of a type known to be on any commercial airliner.

            12) The Pentagon’s walls are six feet of steel reinforced concrete and would have prohibited the engines, fuselage and wings from penetrating it and disappearing completely.

            13) There was no evidence of people, luggage or anything else from the damage causing crafts found in any area to suggest they carried people making the evidence to suggest the training exercise was governmentally implemented to eliminate the passenger crafts – except the one which left debris over a ten square mile area in Pennsylvania – so no traces could be found and, more than likely, they were destroyed over the Atlantic Ocean for that reason.

            ... to happen it would have to have been internally done.

              The0, I know that conspiracy theorists say that Bush instigated the affair so he could start a war in the Middle East to punish, oh heck, I've forgotten already, some alleged attack or insult on his Daddy. And the fact that he was visiting a kindergarten class in another state, which he'd never done before, was suspicious. Also the lack of surprise on his face when told of the attack was very damning. I agree that the visit and lack of emotional expression was suspicious. However, I don't think the event or events were arranged by our own people. If this was an inside job, I think the "inside" involvement was knowledge of, and failure to prevent, the attack.

                MizBejabber, The repost said Bush had been informed of the possibility of that air craft action happening and as an Ex Air Defense Command aircraft mechanic I served on alert where hot loaded aircrafts sat to shoot down any airliner off their flight plan by only a few degrees would have been shot down if they didn't return to flight plan I launched many a craft for that purpose. Bush's responsibility was to put all Air Defense Command's crafts on HOT alert until such time the evidence proved to either be true or false. By not doing that it became Dereliction of Duty and after it happened it became TREASON on his part.

                What fire of any kind that happens in this nation you know isn't first allowed to be investigated as to what happened? [The latest California fires are 2 others that were not investigated as to the causes.] The steal beams were left were immediately carried to China and never inspected to know what happened.

                You must really have an unwarranted trust in the government not to see 9/11 was an United States planned and executed event.

    As I've stated publicly before, I am not a Trump supporter. One of the reasons is because Trump is a Putin puppet. However, I don't believe the fate of Syria is in the hands of the United States, Donald Trump, or any American. These people have been at war since Biblical times and they are not going to stop until there is complete genocide and one side is completely wiped out. The only thing different today is that the combatants have bigger and more dangerous toys to use on each other, and vestiges of those weapons like gas can seep into the territories of non-combatants.

    I just hope that this gas attack doesn't get the United States in a war escalation in the Middle East. I think that we need to hold our actions and let them duke it out unless we have the FULL support of the United Nations. We do not need to stay there and hold the hands of any of these parties trying to wipe out each other.

    You ask if we can risk bad relations with Russia? I ask if this is a Russian setup, and we're damned if we do and damned if we don't.  I believe that may be why the US+UN are still trying to figure out how to react.

      Ahorseback,
      The United States of America already have concentration camps and Hitler's governing manual in the form of The Patriot Act in place, the thing preventing this nation from implementing it is the adult weapons We The People have would cause the entire world to see the U.S. is attempting another "Holocaust" right here. That is the reasons for all of the School shootings, they want to get the children involved [like Hitler had children telling on their parents] in aiding them get rid of the adult rifles but that will not happen until the "Son of Man" in in control of the government and proves he intend for World Peace to happen. Therefore, it is neither left or right but both together.

      I also disagree with "They are both atrocities against humanity apparently stoppable by ONLY America." It isn't the US per se, it is the CIA types of all the major nations who are working together to make the entire world like 1930s Germany and reduce the about 10 Billion population to only 500 million.

    "The U.S. officials said Friday’s airstrikes were twice the size of the U.S. assault last year, which targeted a single airbase."Clearly the Assad regime did not get the message last year," Mattis said. "This time our allies and we have struck harder." Mattis said the U.S. intelligence has determined that the Syrian government used chlorine gas in last Saturday's poison attack.


    The attacks stirred up angry responses from Syria’s allies and ignited a debate over whether the attacks were justified. Russian President Vladimir Putin called the strikes an “act of aggression” that had the “destructive influence on the entire system of international relations and will exacerbate humanitarian catastrophe in Syria.” “Russia condemns in the strongest possible terms the attack against Syria, where Russian military personnel are assisting the legitimate government in its counterterrorism efforts,” he said in a statement."

    "The United States, Britain and France launched precision military strikes in Syria to punish the Assad regime for an apparent chemical weapons attack against civilians. President Donald Trump called the assault a “combined operation” with two European allies; as Defense Secretary James Mattis said, they targeted three locations in what he described as a heavy but carefully limited assault.
    Fox News confirmed that warships and U.S. Air Force B-1 bombers, which flew out of Qatar, were used in Friday’s campaign.

    Mattis said no follow-up attacks are planned and that the Pentagon was careful to ensure the safety of Russian troops and Syrian civilians in the area.
    Pentagon officials said the attacks targeted the heart of Assad's programs to develop and produce chemical weapons. The strikes did not cause any casualties and the facilities targeted only had minor damages."

          Russia , China , Iranians ........leaders all posturing just as much for their own people's impressions of them as leaders ,as they do against us . In other words Putin has to condemn the US act to show his own people how tough he really {isn't ] is .

    I met a man in the grocery store originally from Mesopotamia. He said the US has caused war in the Middle East destroying the historically most fertile and prosperous area in the world. He was commenting on my scrawny head of Romain lettuce. He said he remembers the huge Romain lettuce heads and beautiful crops grown there before the US came along and ruined everything.

      Let me guess  global warming from America ?   Too bad so many in the world blame us for their failures and their success' as well ,yet don't mind cashing those foreign aid checks .  I'm tired of getting our U.S. fingers bitten feeding the dogs of all the  neighbors in the world.

        Why did we involve ourselves with the regime of Hussein? Why are we involved in the Middle east?
        There is a Global agenda. It has to do with Oil, Money, Power.

          Perhap's Reagan should have bombed one of his father's  castles just as a message when he sent the jets in to correct the errant Syrian leader in the eighties ? We're too weak on warning them with Russia posturing over their shoulders .

            but why? bomb one of the castles? What was his father doing?

              Syria's always been a Russian puppet for strategic importance , sea ports for Russian ships , bases for jets etc.....AND not very nice to the rest of the middle eastern nations at all , check out their violence to others . 

              But the infighting tribal leaders within Syria are now gassing women and children - That cannot happen , by world treaty for one.

                well, Trump took good action which was backed by our allies. People should be thankful. If he determined that he had to do something, he had to do something. Some are thinking he had to get approval, but he needed to act swiftly or not at all.

                  Exactly , and  to the nay- sayers of any chemical attack ;  You cannot bury that evidence , it's impossible to get rid of gas particle evidence  . it must have happened or we wouldn't have bombed them .
