Lies and Betrayal
Thanks Chris for stepping in here and responding to Bob's post #17. On another thread, I mentioned McCain and Graham as examples of those who advocate greater military involvement in Syria. I recall Bob reacting to my mention of them in a subsequent post on that thread. So I felt pretty sure my post was one of those he was referring to. I never said I thought they were responsible for the sarin attack. So I noticed I had a reaction when I saw their names mentioned in his post as though I had. In the interest of clear, clean communication, I appreciate you bringing this up for us all to be aware of in our comments to one another. It's a good reminder to us all to take responsibility for our words.
Bob, I believe you are mistaken. You might want to go back and re-read my post. There are many here and around the world who felt misled by the lies that resulted in the war in Iraq and all the death and destruction that followed. My question is: do we really want a repeat of that? This has nothing to do with where you are on the political spectrum. It has to do with betrayal and disrespect for the American public by those in power. After Iraq and many other instances of duplicity, I no longer believe what I'm being told by our government. I've learned to my sorrow that we are capable of horrible things and then lying about it. So, it didn't seem like too much of a stretch to wonder if we were using a false flag event (again) to precipate war against Syria. Yes, I question the motives of those pulling the strings because of past behavior. The greatest predictor of future behavior is past behavior.
As for who the elites are – I think you know who that is. It is those who are in positions of power and influence (inside and outside government) who pursue their own agenda at the expense of everyone else and the planet. I'm sure I could come up with other definitions as well. They answer to no one but themselves.
You sure you weren't still feeling a contact buzz when you posted?
Glad you had a good summer.
