“What we’re planning is a targeted, limited attack. And I can announce today that the Iranians have agreed to stage only a targeted, limited response.”

  1. Spot on, Keith. This affair starts to look like a really weird theatre , a wargame.
    About that Obama speech yesterday, you have all said it so well here. I didn´t hear any new red lines though. Surely there must be a new timeline for Assad or can he hold on to the chemical weapons a couple of years or so ? Now, I belong to those who believe that it really was the rebels or maybe some rogue soldiers who used the gas, anyone but the Army on Assads order. But this new Obama position , that really is part of a Putin plan, helps him to stay on and fight those evil Islamists without interruption. And I certainly hopes that he succeds.The Islamists are the real enemies of the free world while Assad is not.
    By the way, saw your interview in that video. Pity you can´t comment in our TV, we are stuck with those CNN analyses of the world events.

    • “The Islamists are the real enemies of the free world while Assad is not.”

      Assad, Hizb’Allah and Iran certainly are enemies of the free world.

      • I think the Islamists, who come from many nations, fight in many nations, terrorize many nations ( also here in the West ) are the most dangerous, aggressive phenomenom in the world right now. They are the footsoldiers of evil. Russia, China, even Syria are nations with leaders that are possible to negotiate with , make treaties with if you are a skilled, intelligent politician. Nixon was such a politician, Thacher/Reagan too.
        Russia and China are quite modern nations, eagerly but cautiously approaching the West. Do you really still regard them as enemies ? Oh, and young Snowden, who protects him ? Well, he might be a hostage, we will see about that, but right now Putin does not look so bad in my book.

        • Syria’s “boss” is Iran. Hizb’Allah has spread throughout the world, even so far as South American and Central America.

          Yes, I consider Russia and China to be our enemies. Putin is a former officer in the KGB, and his anti-freedom credentials have been further solidified since he took over.

          Two things pop into my mind right now: How many journalists have been assassinated in his nation? Remember the jailing of the members of Pussy Riot?

          A third thing: he is aligned with Syria and Iran.

        • Putin has an agenda, and one of them is showing the world he is not the big bad person everyone paints him as. He is still a very dangerous person, you just don’t change your spots overnight.

          Putin has gained a few one-ups on BO, Snowden and now Syria. G-20 was all his too.

          If you also note, China has stayed quiet, except backing Russia and sending a ship or 2. That is a sleeper that also needs to be watched.

  2. A powerful car bomb exploded Wednesday near Libya’s Foreign Ministry building in the heart of the eastern coastal city of Benghazi, security officials said, one year to the date after an attack there killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.

    The early morning blast targeted a building that once housed the U.S. Consulate under the rule of King Idris, who former Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi overthrew in a 1969 bloodless coup. The explosion caused no serious causalities, though several passers-by were slightly wounded, officials said.

    The bomb blew out a side wall of the building, leaving desks, filing cabinets and computers strewn among the concrete rubble. It also damaged the Benghazi branch of the Libyan Central Bank along a major thoroughfare in the city.


    • “What happened in Benghazi is a tragedy. We’re investigating exactly what happened. I take full responsibility for that fact. I send these folks in harm’s way, I want to make sure they’re always safe and when that doesn’t happen, that we figure out what happened and make sure that doesn’t happen again. But my biggest priority now is bringing those folks to justice and I think the American people have seen that’s a commitment I’ll always keep.”

  3. Keith, I read on Ulsterman yesterday that there were 2 Syrian Rebel prisoners/captives (one from Italy, the other from Belgium) that said they overheard a conversation from their captors saying that the rebels had indeed used chemical attacks, not Assad’s army. What do you know about this? One prisoner was a journalist, the other a teacher. I think the report was in an Italian newspaper. I hope you can check into this.
