If some of the "regulars" recall I had posted a couple of blogs as to why did we get involved in Libya to begin with. The contrast between Libya and Syria when it comes down to innocent civilians being killed is close to the same level. The reality about Libya is that the real reason was the oil. The world did not hesitate to "help" when it came to stopping the bloodshed under the guise of what is right.. Syria can gas and kill over 100,000 civilians, displace over 2 million people but alas no oil, no help... The kicker is if you choose to read the article you can see what the help amounted to. The moral to the story is commitment and follow through. If you are going to start something you need to have an exit stratagy, an endstate, and a plan for sustainment. We never seem to get that one right...

Oil has always been the prime - albeit sometimes unspoken - driver of our "national interests" in the Middle East.

August 26, 2014
White/Hispanic unarmed white young male shot by black police officer. I don't recall the white house making any statements and I wonder if they will send any aides to this young mans funeral. As long as we continue to perpetuate "it's ok he's black" this double standard will continue to ...

Race Based Hate Crimes are Color Blind
August 20, 2014
As the Ferguson fiasco continues most of the claims have been that the white community is guilty of race based violence and purported inequities. The link below denotes more race based hate crimes primarily against whites. My question is; should the "white" community in DC be rioting and demanding change? ...

Abandon Ship...
August 13, 2014
So... Hillary begins the journey of distancing herself from the administration she has steadfastly supported after losing the DEM nomination 6 years ago. She apparently has been openly questioning Nobama's position regarding Syria and his lack of leadership dealing with "Hard Choices" concerning foreign diplomacy. I suspect it will not ...
