Lieberman: 'Attack Assad AND ISIS!'
Joe Lieberman finds no reason to keep up the facade of the backdoor-to-war with Syria. He flat out said on Face The Nation Sunday: “We should attack Assad and fight ISIS.”

Max Boots On The Ground
The neocons have a jackboot in the door and they are commencing to kick it in. After they relentlessly hectored President Obama for last week admitting he does not have a strategy to deal with ISIS, the president this week decided to triangulate. Not a single US boot on the ground, he solemnly promised (though we already have 1,000), but he would bomb ISIS to smithereens wherever they might hide. Everywhere!

'We Are With You...Here Are The Missiles'
Though in the limited time left before Congress adjourns for August break it seemed doubtful an emergency aid package to re-arm Israel could pass, it appears the Senate is not as moribund on some issues as others.

Rubin & Rubio Try To Keep Conservatives In Line
Panic time for neocons! Another poll has been released showing American disdain for the sprawling US military empire. This time Politico hands a piece of kryptonite to the warmongers. An incredible two out of three Americans want the US to stay out of foreign conflicts that are not a direct threat to US national security.

Jennifer Rubin: 'We Must Fix Burma Now!'
Maintaining a military empire is an impossible task. Austrian economic theory explains the reasons why, and human history has more than proved the fact in an empirical sense. Yet, despite the countless failures at world domination, a new batch of power-lusters are always ready to roll the dice that are permanently loaded against them.

Neocons appear to actually be emboldened by their failures, using disasters they have wrought as excuses to double-down on faulty analysis, bad advice, a twisted worldview.

Krauthammer: Arm The Kurds!


Charles Krauthammer

While Senator John McCain is busy calling President Obama a sissy, with his “pinprick” airstrikes in Iraq, his neocon comrade Charles Krauthammer offers up the following idea:
The only thing that will make a difference is boots on the ground. Kurdish boots! Nobody’s asking for Americans. Just fly in the weapons!
Sure, just fly in the weapons! That has become the go-to move for neocons who have to deal with a war weary, and increasingly non-interventionist American public.

Didn’t the U.S. government “just fly in the weapons” to the Syrian insurgents? What pray tell happened to those weapons?

This may shock believers in the Empire, but the weapons helped to create the very ISIS menace that is steamrolling Iraq. As RPI Executive Director, Daniel McAdams pointed out: “Without US support for the rebels in Syria, ISIS would not be overrunning Iraq right now.”

Krauthammer wants yet another round of “Let’s arm X”.

Unless you’re a crony member of the military-industrial complex, the answer should be a resounding: “No!!”
