  •  The question is: What are they trying to do? (10+ / 0-)

    I'd start with the 100 BILLION invested in permanent bases in Iraq -- that seems to be their most exposed position.  I'd like to hear some other suggestions.

    They may not know what they are doing (effect) but I am sure they know what they WANT TO DO (both in intent and action).

      and the page looks scary.

      •  It is the SOS they began with (6+ / 0-)

        What we have here is a failure to communicate, the PNAC Neo-Cons are not listening to anyone or even reviewing their own sorry experience in Iraq. They intend to get their series of outlined wars no matter what anyone thinks or what damage it does to our troops, treasury, and international reputation. The IDF is striking more than terrorists in Lebanon they are targeting Lebanese army facilities, the Lebanese infrastructure and other nonmilitary targets. The Neo-Cons Likudnick brothers in Israel are trying their best to force the PNAC Agenda.

        The Fascist noise machine Limbaugh, Beck, Savage, Fox/s talking heads and the rest are banging away and started to do so with the onset hostilities in Lebanon. They all have a list of identical talking points that promote war with Syria and Iran and like Kristol’s are mostly the SOS that promoted the invasion on Iraq. Public opinion, polls reflecting it mean nothing to these war mongering snakes in the grass who in the case of most all of our Neo-cons never wore the uniform of an American serviceman. They intend to do what they set out to do regardless of any consequences and no matter what lies they tell or whose deaths they cause. Their actions are criminal.

        Integrity is the doing what is right in the absence of witnesses and with no other gain in mind.

      LondonYank said (correctly in my opinion) is that they want oil that does not have to go through the Straits of Hormuz, which means pipelines through Syria from Iran and Iraq to ports in Syria, protected by bases.

      In my opinion the Republicans can not voice this plan because it means a committment to Empire in the Victorian sense of the word; blood and money beyond comprehension. So we are fobbed off with stories about democracy in the mid east, non existant nukes in Iran, faux attacks on Israel and the rest of the Bush version of Grimm's Tales.
