Four times the US has made the same mistake in the Middle East. Now Trump is making it yet again over Iran – “The US and its allies have fatally underestimated the religious motivation of their adversaries, and lost countless conflicts as a result” – Patrick Cockburn
The NYT Opposes Syria’s Liberation – “It pretends US naked aggression in Syria is all about humanitarian intervention and democracy building, notions it abhors. It falsely claims war in Syria is a civil conflict. There’s nothing remotely civil about it. It calls cold-blooded cutthroat killer jihadists opposition forces or moderate rebels. They’re all radicalized extremists, operating as US proxies.” – Stephen Lendman

Years of staying woke finally produced hallucinations and violent outbursts. It was time to medicate the patient. Enter, stage right, the Tranquilizer, smiling Uncle Joe Biden, the perfect agent to quell an acute case of adolescent rebellion. Mostly, the rank-and-file don’t seem to know what to make of Uncle Joe’s arrival on the scene. It’s as if they popped .5 milligrams of Xanax a half an hour ago and all the intersectional strife that seemed so urgent last month just up and flew out of the room, like so many leaf-nosed bats from a frightful cave of winds.” – James Howard Kunstler

What Do You Do When Your Supplies Run Out? – “The small percentage of the population that keeps extra supplies on hand in the event of a disaster have taken the necessary steps to insure their family will not suffer as most others will following an event. This is the act of intelligent people that realize we live in a dangerous world with many unknowns. It does not matter if you are prepared for two weeks, two months or two years of societal disruptions. At some point, if the event goes on long enough, you will eventually come to the end of your supplies.” – Tom Chatham
