    Unless doing so keeps some fine union folk in a factory someplace employed, or even better, in over time.

    I'm not sure. Perishable items would be a good thing. But any high tech items that could be fired at us later, I don't think so. Union folk can work on stockpiles. I don't like the idea of weaponizing our future enemies.

    Heh, you mean like sending 60 tons of VX to Iraq?

    My view on the CIA is this - reorganize it. Task it with intel and analysis and take away any action component - forbid them to action. If action needs to be taken on foreign soil, then dammit, it should be our military doing it, ordered by the chain of command.

    No more black box projects, no more phantom budgets.

    LOL. Good thread Howler.

    The CIA should be boarded up and turned into a Christian Science reading room. Useless intelligence-wise, they are simply a gang of thugs for the Oil Oligarchs (aka the CFR, the State Dept.)

    JFK wanted to shut their doors, viewing them as a secret govmnt within a government. He fired Allen Dulles (aka Mephistopheles), s**t canned the Bay of Pigs and wanted to stop Vietnam, the rest is history.

    The mainstream media would tell you these things on a regular basis, except they are run by the CIA, also.

    dude - everyone fighting in this mess is an enemy.

    Hint. Tanks make very poor spies. They tend to be.... noticeable.

    Apparently we are trying to make "friends" by providing small scale support to the rebels. If the rebels win out in the end, I have a feeling the same people won't be "friends" any longer, especially if militant Islamists control the government and they probably will. It's the same tired script played out once again.

    I would hope no one advising the President is that naive. Far more likely we are trying to ensure that both Hezbollah and Al Qaeda have the resources necessary to Keep Killing Each Other For A Very Long Time.

    This thing is sort of like the Iraq-Iran war. America's policy should be to try to figure out a way to get both sides to lose.
