The Neocons really, badly need a demon for their comeback world-tour. Vladimir Putin will just have to do.
The US military has just honored the secret cease-fire in Syria, that the UN Security Council can't see, by killing 62 Syrian soldiers with airstrikes.
"Uh, bad coordinates. Uh, sorry, we made a mistake."
Naw, it's not really and "act of war", just like Israeli air force attacks on Syrian soldiers in Syria were not.
This update increases the death toll to 80 and wounded are over 100. This is at a point which is critical to the battles in the area, the highest point in the region.
"The actions of the coalition "clearly paved the way for Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists to attack the position and take control of it," the agency said citing the General Command of the Army and Armed Forces."
“I find it slightly unbelievable that the Americans could hit this target thinking this was ISIS when in fact ISIS is laying siege to the city. And the Syrian forces for years now have been known to be holed up in that city. So it seems just strange that the Americans are just saying it was a bit of a mistake,” Machon told RT. The former MI5 agent pointed out that Russian role in Syria is clear while the US policymakers are “divided” over their objectives in Syria.
"Secret cables and reports by the U.S., Saudi and Israeli intelligence agencies indicate that the moment Assad rejected the Qatari pipeline, military and intelligence planners quickly arrived at the consensus that fomenting a Sunni uprising in Syria to overthrow the uncooperative Bashar Assad was a feasible path to achieving the shared objective of completing the Qatar/Turkey gas link. In 2009, according to WikiLeaks, soon after Bashar Assad rejected the Qatar pipeline, the CIA began funding opposition groups in Syria." — Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
In the Leeds email dated March 3, 2015, Powell writes that "Iranians can’t use [a nuke] if they finally make one," in the context of the ongoing talks about Tehran’s nuclear program. "The boys in Tehran know Israel has 200, all targeted on Tehran, and we have thousands. As [Iranian President Mahmoudin Ahmedinejad said], ‘What would we do with one, polish it?’

"According to the Quinnipiac University poll, Clinton has the support of just 31 percent of voters aged 18-34, with 29 percent for Libertarian Gary Johnson, 25 percent for Republican Donald Trump and 15 percent for Green Party candidate Jill Stein."
9/11/16 Hillary Clinton Body-Double has distinctly different earlobes (and slimmer hips, fewer wrinkles, more energy, etc). I've been looking at these stories for several days. The earlobe differences are decisive. It's not just the earrings.
Here is what I have been seeing all week, and there is plenty of it.
I have been thinking too small, really. I've been thinking that Hillary Clinton has to withdraw from the race for a replacement to save-the-game for the team.
Democratic shouting-heads are announcing that there will be blood all over Donald Trump's hands if Hillary Clinton gets assassinated.
Is that clear enough foreshadowing of what's in store for this used-up political liability? (Actually, Hillary could just be moved to Dubai, or the Denver airport underground complex, or something. I wonder how Saddam Hussein's body-doubles are doing. You never hear about those guys these days.)
To rephrase that recent Rasmussen poll. more Democratic voters want Bernie Sanders than want all other options combined (Biden, Kaine, other), should Hillary Clinton have to leave for health reasons.
Rob Hopkins relates his first year experience growing hops (and gets me interested again).
NASA and MIT are working on a passenger jet, that would carry double the passengers for the amount of fuel used, by 2027.
