  2. Dear fellow progressive,

    On Wednesday I voted along with 155 my colleagues — Democrat and Republican alike — against authorizing training and arming Syrian rebels to fight against the Islamic State.

    I was disappointed that an action that expands our role in a 13-years-long conflict was merely tacked on to a spending bill. I was disappointed that debate on the bill failed to consider diplomatic and regionally-led solutions that could help us “degrade and destroy” the Islamic State. Mostly, I was disappointed that the U.S. has conducted nearly 3,000 missions and more than 150 air strikes and has deployed more than 1,000 troops already — and Congress has not voted on any of it.

    That’s why I voted no.
    Will you stand with me in calling for Congress to
    vote on expanding military action?

    Proponents of the current action painted it as a simple up-or-down vote on aiding members of the Free Syrian Army. But it is far from simple. If 13 years of intervention in the region have taught us anything, it’s that no military action is simple, and all military actions have far-reaching consequences.

    Will you join me in telling Congress to
    vote in full on the expansion of military action in Iraq and Syria?


    Ultimately, 273 of my colleagues — again, both Democrat and Republican — voted yes, and the Senate agreed last night. We must have a full debate and vote on the further use of military force. Congress must not shirk its Constitutional requirement and the war-weary American people should demand it.

    Standing strong,

    Barbara Lee
    Member of Congress

  3. I suggest it is not so much money for war but war for money, we can see how their are two tiers of society, one is the will of the people as a idea, some call this democracy, the second tier is the denial of the rights of the people that are denied any influence as to what the majority of people want, as the Australian general said in the ABC, TV, interview, I do not have morals that interfere with the orders given, this ability to avoid any moral decisions, being over ridden by it is only my job, this hierarchy is how the controlling elite deal with morality, as such the repercussions of the individual who is move to act as a moral entity, are serious punishment, as can be seen by people that have been motivated by conscience, such as Edward Snowden, here you can see the controlling elite having powers that are corrupt, can harm individuals who enlighten society, showing as example the subversive nature of this form of government that are not to be trusted by the people.
    It is debatable as to whether beheading of recent of two Western people, as this can be a subversive exercise of the controlling elite to control perception of the people, if examples such as the Twin Towers were a inside job as many suggest, we now have to look at our government as a subversive organization who can never be trusted.
    We see in Britain, the fear of the Scottish, now in a state of disgrace, to acquiesce to Whitehall, and having been cowered by the fear process that people such as Cameron, having instigated, leaving the choice to future generation Scots, who will have a greater sense of their destiny, the ancestors of the Scottish, would be appalled by the cowardly act of the present generation decision.
    We all have work to change the present authorities in power who are no more than paid lackeys of the financiers, it is to the credit those who lay down their life to change the present powers that are the exploitive military, that follow the orders of the power structure.
    Whether the Jews will eventually with allies of America, Britain, and France, all having orders from the Jewish hierarchy, to destroy the Arab culture, it is my hope the Arabs will fight the evil forces that at present are trespassing not only of land and resources, but the destruction of Arab men and women, and all that is in their culture.

    • I most strongly dissociate myself from the last paragraph.

      The world is not ruled by “the Jewish hierarchy”, but by CAPITALIST hierarchies. Most capitalists are not Jewish; most Jews are not capitalists.

      Ant-Semitism, Islamophobia, anti-African bigotry and other forms of racism are not welcome at this blog. They will be deleted.

      • I am sorry to have offended you, I always forget that on this blog I must keep away from certain issues I believe.
        I am not sure how this word came about as i have forgotten the origins, but do know in part the original word is not what it became known as this impugned meaning, can you say a word that is applied to any other culture or country that has this same meaning as you mean? can you say if you are of this culture or have associations with this group? its just that I have a inquiring mind that knows no bounds other that within the limits of what my brain is as its limits, prohibit barriers that I cannot comprehend, such as the history of the atomic structure that I am, and how the quantum physics created this formulation of my atomic structure, meaning my history is in the beginning of the Universe, and if this is the analysis of my physical self, means I have no choice, what I mean is my existence has already been created, and their fore what ever I think or what ever I dream has already been written, in one way I can say this letter is not my letter to you, other than if every thing is in a parallel state as in quantum mechanics, that I am responsible for this letter or not.
