The Hawks Are Circling the Capitol Looking for Another War to Start

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Andy Marquis, reporter for RACE22.com, is our guest blogger of the day. He used to consider himself a Republican but not any more.  He changed his voter registration to Independent in 2011 and says that’s how it will remain.

Here’s his latest guest post:

The Hawks Are Circling the Capitol Looking for Another War to Start

Reports from NBC News and CBS News that Syria is preparing to use chemical weapons against the rebellion in the civil war that has torn that country apart is being followed by the usual response from Senator John McCain (R: Arizona) among others.  McCain, appearing at a press conference, said President Barack Obama should prepare for military intervention in Syria.

"We urge the President of the United States to make whatever military preparations are necessary to show Assad that the United States is fully willing and able to impose the consequences that he has spoken of in the event these weapons are used," McCain said. "For deterrence to work it must be based on a credible threat."

McCain spoke along with Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina, Senator Chris Coons of Delaware and Senator Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut.

"Time for talking about what to do may now be coming to a close and we may instead be left with an awful and very difficult decision," McCain said.  "We have now reached a point where there are weapons of mass destruction that may be used and also there is a significant question about the security of these weapons should Bashar Assad fall."

"We are all saying to President Obama, who has stated that there will be drastic consequences for Assad and his government if they use chemical and biological weapons, we’re with you," Lieberman said. "There’s strong support across Congress if the president takes the strong action that’s necessary to prevent a very, very — historically horrific — humanitarian disaster in Syria.”

This is the rhetoric that we’ve heard from the right for years.  Following the unsuccessful war on terrorism and the invasion of Iraq, hawks have sought for US intervention in Israel during The 34 Day War, as well as in Libya (the hawks supported going to war before they opposed it when Obama did do so) and Iran.  Now, with a very real threat occurring in Syria, the hawks are beating the war drums once again.

However, this time, it may end up being a necessary evil.

"Third Party" Americans Elect Tanks, No Candidate

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Aw, it seems like just yesterday the media was fawning all over those "sensible centrists"... I mean, what can you expect from a group whose shining star is Joe Lieberman?

Americans Elect, the deep-pocketed nonprofit group that set out to nominate a centrist third-party presidential ticket, admitted early Tuesday that its ballyhooed online nominating process had failed.

(snip)

The group had qualified for the general election ballot in 27 states, and had generated concern among Democrats and Republicans alike that it could wreak havoc on a close election between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.

But just after a midnight deadline Monday, the group acknowledged that its complicated online nominating process had failed to generate sufficient interest to push any of the candidates who had declared an interest in its nomination over the threshold in its rules.

(snip)

The group failed to generate interest in possible campaigns from Sens. Joe Lieberman and Lamar Alexander, and its highest-profile candidate had been former Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer, who declared his candidacy after dropping his bid for the GOP presidential nomination.
