I am incoserv, and I approve of this message.

Like, 100%! Been saying it since the day I realized W. was full of fermenting fecal material and that we had been duped on a massive scale, which was just a few months into the Iraq invasion.

The left, which were formerly peaceniks, will be shouting battle cries as the new warmongers.


The only complaint so far has been some Republicans over Syria. That the left?

So it is widely received in the (inter)Press as good news for peace, and a wise decision?

I thought many in the US wanted an exit from the mideast. Seems as though only the right has been critical of removing troops. Blame Obama for a while was big.

Personally I feel most of the leaders and country are full lies, bias and general BS. We are getting what we have set up. People seem to jump on whatever band wagon is currently passing their house.

It is just business (money). Look to those getting rich.

The only MSM news I listen to is the radio in the morning and they stated that Trump was getting flak from Republicans and Democrats on his decision to pull our troops out of Syria. This was both Fox and ABC radio.

We shouldn't have gone into the Middle East, but we did. Just because he doesn't want us there, doesn't mean the right solution is to just abandon past allies and bail when they need us. This was a coordinated move - and now people are going to die, because of Trump's decision. There could have been a much more elegant removal - not a trigger-pulling reaction on a phone call, and then we are out 24 hours later.

No thoughts on the results of pulling out, just blindly doing it because he is Trump, and can. Even if those are not "our" people, they are still people - and it's sad to me, that people can be so flippant and overjoyed that Trump's actions caused an immediate attack on what used to be our allies.

No doubt leaders on both sides are critical of an exit. Cleanly dividing all decisions down the middle by political party is unrealistic.

The whole middle east and parts of Africa are not and have not been real borders, with real countries, with real rulers.


Rulers are only as real as the weapons and foreign interests that back them - keeping their people under dictatorships.

The borders are real - set up by Britain and protected by US soldiers so the US/Petrodollar remains supreme, and the MIC makes money and Big Oil like Shell and BP.



wiki Iraq -


In April 1920 the British Mandate of Mesopotamia was created under the authority of the League of Nations. A British-backed monarchy joining these vilayets into one Kingdom was established in 1921 under Faisal I of Iraq. The Hashemite Kingdom of Iraq gained independence from the UK in 1932.


The Shah of Persia

en.wikipedia.org...état


The 1953 Iranian coup d'état, known in Iran as the 28 Mordad coup d'état (Persian: کودتای ۲۸ مرداد‎), was the overthrow of the democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh in favour of strengthening the monarchical rule of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi on 19 August 1953, orchestrated by the United States (under the name TPAJAX Project[5] or "Operation Ajax") and the United Kingdom (under the name "Operation Boot").[6][7][8][9] It was the first covert action of the United States to overthrow a foreign government during peacetime

Did you give a toss when no WMD's were found?

the US and Big Oil interests go back to 1906

Did you care about the breakup of Libya? Iraq? Afghanistan? or the millions killed and displaced?

Good that we agree - trying to keep people honest rather than "Trump this/Hillary that"

The point I'm making about borders that you claimed weren't real is that they exist in law and exist insofar as you can destabilize them ( put in your puppet ) or protect them.

I don't think I've come across countries being created by "voters" only by guns and brute force.

Fine is not fine

Anti-trust officials of the European Commission raided the offices of a number of oil companies, including Shell, last week. They're investigating allegations of price-fixing.
Anti-competitive agreements -- whether formal or informal, written or verbal -- are prohibited under the UK Competition Act and the EC Treaty. Companies can be fined up to 10% of their global turnover for each year they engage in the behaviour, up to a maximum of three years.

Shell's turnover for the past three years totals over a trillion dollars and the 10% figure is $130 billion. That represents around three times the company's latest annual profit and 18 years of dividends!
