    that if your corporate gun-running masters want another dirty war, the so-called "intelligence" is easily fixed around the policy. Have we all forgotten the many military misadventures of our lifetimes?

      Also, keep an eye out for another favorite strategy of government warmongers:  Set Them Up To Fail.

      Wow, that didn't take long! Just now on MSNBC, Bill Richardson (speaking on behalf of God) said Syria deserves sterner punishment that giving up its chemical weapons. He wants an additional pound of flesh.  He suggested requiring Syria to agree to political resolution of its civil war. I'm trying to imagine how the outcome if European countries had imposed such a demand on President Lincoln in the first year of our own civil war (while they simultaneously supplied the Confederacy with weapons). Not a chance.  Richardson's requirement would be doomed to fail, giving the US the war it wanted all along and is desperately trying to justify.
