(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Syria: Clear Danger

The truth about the Israeli air strike on a Syrian location September 6th has been confirmed. Israel, up to now, had been suspiciously silent about the affair. I wrote about the incident and its implications for Israel, Syria, Iran and North Korea here. Israel is still at its highest alert.

Benjamin Netanyahu told NewsMax:
Israeli opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu has broken a two-week official silence over the Israeli air strike on Syria, acknowledging for the first time that it was a government operation and hinting that it was a major success.

“I was privy to the matter from the outset and I gave my backing,” he told Israeli television on Wednesday. “But it's too early to be discussing this.”

Asked if he had congratulated Prime Minister Ehud Olmert once the mission was over, the conservative leader said: “In person? Yes.”

Netanyahu shed no new light on the targets the Israeli F-15-I jets took out, which remains a tightly-held secret.

Speculation in the Israeli and the U.S. media has focused on a suspect shipment from North Korea, possibly of nuclear-related material - that arrived in Syria just days before the Israeli Air Force struck in the early morning hours of Sept. 6.

Reports in both Israel and the United States speculated that North Korea sold Syria nuclear weapons material – and possibly a nuclear warhead – which prompted Israel to launch the strike.
North Korea could simply be seeking to earn money before its facilities are dismantled” under the disarmament agreement reached with the United States, one official speculated. “Or Syria could have agreed to stockpile equipment or material for them until some later date.”

Americans, the DEM (Defeatist, Elitist Media) and our government seem to be shocked that Syria would attempt to acquire a nuclear program. But considering the totality of the circumstances, the tentacles of Iran are everywhere, and extend clearly to Syria, Yemen, Iraq, and every other country adjacent -- including North Korea and Russia.

And yet we allow the Iranian President to come to the US, to make his propagandist statements, to take center stage, to invite him to an alleged institution of higher learning. And take the stage he shall, trot out his rants he will, take complete advantage because he is not stupid, but rather very plotting. We play into Ahmadinejad's hands at our expense.

Make no mistake, dear readers. It is the bulk of the world against the United States. And it is because the US appears to be weak once more, perceived as a Paper Tiger -- and because the rest of the named nations realize that a loosely-linked but organized coalition of nation-states work more effectively against the Great Satan. If you doubt it is because we appear weak, ask yourself: do you believe that this conglomertion would occur if Reagan were President? I would wager not. In truth, Reagan did not help with his minimal response to the bombing of the Marine barracks in Lebanon. But the Paper Tiger perception was enforced time and again during the Clinton Administration to the point where AQ realized "if at first you fail (1993), try, try again (2001)."

Every generation thinks it lives in the most dangerous of times. I truly believe that, in toto, these are the most dangerous of times for the United States -- the last, best chance for the survival of the entire planet.

Just think of how many of our poor we could clothe if we started killing Muslims and taken the Rags off their heads.

It's called, recyling.

Just a thought.

See, when you have time on your hands you can think of stuff like this, LOL

We can laugh at that stuff, and rightly so, but we collectively ignore the criticality of that problem to our national detriment. You and I have to keep shoving this issue into the forefront, no matter what it takes, no matter the cost. And I know that you won't fade from your duty. One has but to read your blog to know that you are a Patriot of the First Order.

BZ, you ARE aware that Ranando and I have BOTH been called traitors to this nation don't you?? Simply because we BOTH said we weren't Repubs and because we dared to blast George Fucking Bush??

I was called a fake vet, an imposter, a paid writer, being paid by the left to disrupt and stir shit, and I was ostracized, quite soundly and my blog was threatened because I befriended Ranando, you DO know about that I presume??

Ranando and I BOTH, and Bushwack at least to some degree, have been castigated by some for not kissing Bush's ass and for having the balls to criticize him and his ridiculous incursion into Iraq and yet totally support the troops that are there because they are following orders and have no other option??

Our patriotism and love of America was slandered and we were called terrible names, simply because we said that Bush was wrong...

Bushwack can substantiate all this, as can Ranando...

And in my opinion, Ranando IS a PATRIOT of the 1st Order, as is Bushwack...

Me, I'm just a paid shill for the left and a fake everything... LMAO...

TF: if there's ONE thing I do NOT dispute, it's your devotion to this country. Whilst I may not stridently conform to every pathway to which you and some others adhere, I do not deny that this country needs to WAKE UP and recognize the reality that confronts us HERE and NOW. I still cringe at calling an all-out war against our GOP government, against our president. Yes, I know what he represents. And I know what he's done and hasn't done. But I would still tick his name against ANY OTHER Demorat candidate. That's simply my nature.

BZ, if the Dem was Zell Miller or someone like him I'd have to vote Dem, but yeah, I hear a lot of folks say the same thing, they'd vote for him over ANY Dem but ya know, there might be some Dems that would close the border and stand up to the Persian ASSHOLE that's sleeping on U.S. soil right now, but Bush won't do it...

But Ranando and I were both called traitors to this nation for saying that Bush is WRONG, and the son of a bitch IS wrong, Prez or not, he has all but bled this nation to death with Iraq and accomplished little if anything...

Well BZ, I agree with your post.. We are indeed in trouble. Not because we stand alone against many, but because we have a leader that is so clueless.

As far as Fred's comment, I remember all of that, I also remember a lot of what Fred said was going to happen, actually did... Especially regarding the illegal invasion of OUR nation and what Bush would do about it... Bush did exactly what we prayed he wouldn't do, sell out our nation.
Right then and there I became a Bush Basher rather than a supporter...

This Iran thing is part and parcel of Bush's legacy... IRONY Time:

Bush invoked Regans name several times before he was elected, and since he was elected, yet the same man that was involved in the hostage taking that Reagan handled, is coming to America to rub Bush's nose in it.

BUSH, You are no Ronald Reagan!

I seriously hope Hilary has more balls because it looks like her and bill will be sleeping in Bush's bed soon.

And you know what, as Rob said, I have proven out about 90% on everything I said about Bush but MY accuser has YET to come up with the decency to say 'I'm sorry, you were right', all they did was try to wreck my blog and my only blog roll I had at the time, and all that happened was they brought me MORE readers, more agreement and 8 blog rolls that give a shit load of good Conservatives a lot of blog world exposure...

I bet that throws some knickers in a pissy little twist... LMAO...

I like Ranando's idea of clothing the poor with the rags from the Islamofascists heads. Works for me! :)

Speaking of heads, things are definitely coming to a head, BZ. I believe these are the most dangerous times for the United States too.

The bad news is that Syria has been looking for a decent reactor since the late 1980's and no one has bothered to pay any attention to them. At least since 1989, although those first meetings with Menem could push that as far back as '86. While the US did pressure Menem to stop that, Syria went and got a Chinese reactor for their research needs. That's right: Reagan, Bush, Clinton and now this President have *all* ignored Syrian nuclear intentions. They ignored the phosphate processing plant that the Syrians got from the Swedes... and it was only *after* delivery that the Swedes realized they had just delivered a uranium concentration facility to Syria. It does, indeed, 'purify' phosphate ore... it also takes the impurities and concentrates them.

After that Syria ramped up its phosphate mining facilities by a factor of five or so... actually, more than that, so as to get enough radioactive uranium to produce 6 AQ Khan sized bombs/yr... if only they had separators... oh, wait... IRAN has separators...

Now NoKo, after exchanging long range missile technology with Syria, wants to trade a *plutonium* cycle reactor system to them? Might that just be a threat to someone?

Mind you, Syria has never signed the Chemical Weapons Convention or even the full Bio Weapons Convention, just a few pieces of it. Guess who started a wonderful pharma industry, and then *stopped* once equipment was being delivered? Yes, those lovely Ba'athists in Syria, such sweet snugglies that every Congresscritter just wants to visit!

The lovely thing about it being this long is that it has been a BIPARTISAN FAILURE. By making everything about politics no one bothers to look after the safety of the Nation by regimes that would love to see the US go under. Isn't that lovely? Cast a stone and you have to go through the walls of your glass house too... so no stones... dare not talk about pure and utter incompetence because of those wishing to score political points.

You want my vote? Stand up for the Nation first... we are at war. No lovely 'health care programs' and you can take your 'abortion debate' which is frozen solidly in a glacier and put it where the sun don't shine. Those are not going to help if a couple of US cities disappear off the map.

We are at war against predators, killers, barbarians... they have many names, they do, and have been killing us for decades, but we dare not call them predators, killers, barbarians... just not nice! As if *they* care. The 'root cause' of their making war on us? We are America, and embrace freedom and liberty... they DO NOT. Apparently we are now to embrace a pillow to our face and call it 'freedom'.

Time for the Republicans to get over Ronald Wilson Reagan: he did not deliver the goods. He stopped Communism! Great! He also had twits dealing with Monzer al-Kassar and putting Iran, Syria, FARC, and a whole slew of others on a nastier, deadlier course for this planet that would corrode Nations until they are now so weakened that we have some places just about ready to disintegrate. In Europe. Asia. South America. Africa has had this disease, but it has metastasized. And we now corrode our own Nation so that standing up to a tyrant and despot who would not hold to war time agreements is questioned? What? Apparently one can stand up to an 'Evil Empire' but when seeing sharks in the water may it be suggested that diving in and *then* throwing out chum is not a good idea?

If this batch of candidates reflects the times and our People, then we had best get into some sort of 'survival mode' as individuals. Our Nation doesn't have one right now. The 20th century is *over*, can we stop marching to its tune now? Bloodiest century in history? Multiple genocides? The century where predators returned to the world stage to take on Nations...

It's not a shark! Just a guppy!

Mind the big teeth, that 30' guppy wants an arm and a leg.

TF, Bush & Ranando: if there WERE a Dem similar to Zell, yes, I'd go for them. But I don't see ANY Demorat candidates who would do anything other that SINK this country further into a quagmire of socialism, defeatism, that would essentially turn this nation over to our enemies.

Well Bush is out in 2009, so it's time to start thinking about who or what we'll have come January 2009. No doubt 71% of the country agree's the guy has not lived up to his own hype.

While I myself have vocally called Bush out for his failure to actually be a Republican (See my post titled "Fuck You Bush"). I still think that calling him names does nothing but feed the left's hatred of him and this country.

I am sure a lot of it, as my post illustrates, comes out of frustration at watching the Iraq part of this war being botched and our borders being left wide open. Not to mention spending like a drunken sailor.

Oh and OnTopic: Don't forget Syria's party with the sarin gas a few months ago. Saddams WMD? I think yes.

So, what is the connection between Hillary Clinton and a partially complete Soviet aircraft carrier?

Ahhh... now there's a story for you!

yep, we may have pissed away too much time and money in Iraq, but we do have a nice view of both Syria and Iran from there. it's time to ACT against the Islamists, the petty arguments amongst ourselves does nothing to improve our security today, or tomorrow.
