    2. Putin, however, is not only a politician, he's a former KGB operative. The man can not only lie, he can lie so well that you would sell your mother to defend the lie, and then he would force you to actually sell your mother, only because it would entertain him in between staring kodiak bears to death.


    Honestly, I'm saying this as a guy who thinks the man is an amateurish boob who found his way into office by a horrible confluence of factors, Obama is more credible here than Putin is.
    I don't know, ....something about a guy who lets his own NSA run around like the KGB spying on all us little folk, using the IRS to crush political dissent... Sounds even odds to me...

    Not even close. Obama probably isn't terribly upset that people who work for him used their powers to make life marginally difficult for supporters of his opponent. Putin kills his opponents.

People still refuse to believe, people enjoy the illusion...
    Putin is no different. Syria is a Russian ally, and Putin is grandstanding to protect his assets.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I don't think chemical weapons has anything to do with whether or not the USA goes to war against Syria. Historically, the USA government uses some incident as reason to give Congress and the public why we have to go to war. Usually those reasons proved ultimately to be lies or false.
    No, North Vietnam did not attack one of our ships.
    No, the Spanish did not sink the Maine.
    Yes, the Lusitania was a transporting massive amounts of munitions
    No, Iraq did not have WMDs...

    I do not believe anything coming out from the Obama Administration nor military/intelligence spokespersons about Syria. They want to attack. They will say anything to justify it.

    You would think MOST people will recognize we do NOT receive truthful information about WMDs in terms of why are told we are going to war against another country that has done nothing to us nor threatened us in any way.

    Do you think he might try to lie to us? Distort our opinion a la GW Bush, the first torturer, or not.

    TRUTHINESS! “CNN Caught Staging News Segments on Syria With Actors” | protein wisdom

    "The primary “witness” that the mainstream media is using as a source in Syria has been caught staging fake news segments. Recent video evidence proves that “Syria Danny”, the supposed activist who has been begging for military intervention on CNN, is really just a paid actor and a liar.

    [...]

    By pointing out that the mainstream media is orchestrating their entire coverage of this incident, we are not denying that there is a tremendous amount of death and violence in Syria right now. However, we are showing that the mainstream media version of events is scripted and staged propaganda.

    [...]

    “Syria Danny” has also appeared on many other news programs, and every single time his story on specific events has changed

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Unless you know how to fix it, once I vote for some reason, I can no longer see the names, only the count. Essentially that is what I am asking.
