Why is obama continuing Bush's Iraq war debacle? I voted for him to end that war. He lied.

I'm just completely disgusted.

This war is un-winnable and immoral, in my view.

FYI - the c-word does not have a negative connotation for all people:

Can we all agree? Hillary or Bernie, we'll vote Democratic in the general election!

Senator Sanders On Jobs:

Are war Hawks insane? I mean

They been tryin the same damn thing over there in the Mid East for 14 years... Continuing a war over there that's been goin on for 1400 years... All the while expectin' a different result....

That's just plain crazy, right?

Democrats, in fact, are as likely to have a favorable view of capitalism (43%) as socialism.

Go, Bernie, go!

China’s wind farms can now produce more energy than all of America’s nuclear plants

Nukes are a dirty, dangerous fuel from a bygone era. The fact is, without taxpayers subsidies, nukes would never be built in this country. NO NUKES.

So, US Plans 20,000 Troop Offensive (How do we pay for this?)

http://www.nationalpost.com/m/wp/blog.html?b=news.nationalpost.com/2015/02/19/u-s-iraq-planning-20000-soldier-spring-offensive-to-retake-mosul-from-isis

The U.S. is considering offering a range of backing for the offensive, such as air support, intelligence and logistics, the official said. The military also has not ruled out deploying a small number of U.S. troops on the ground to find targets and call in airstrikes.

While U.S. President Barack Obama has pledged U.S. forces will not become embroiled in ground combat in Iraq, he asked Congress this month to approve an authorization for use of military force he said would permit ground missions. These include serving as spotters for strikes, using special operations forces to target ISIS leaders, collecting intelligence and conducting rescue operations.

The U.S. and allies have established five sites in the region to train Iraqi forces. About 3,200 forces are now in training and almost 2,000 have been graduated

CNN: New Allegations of Saudi Involvement in 9-11

http://edition.cnn.com/2015/02/03/politics/9-11-attacks-saudi-arabia-involvement/

Washington (CNN)New allegations have emerged from the man described as the 20th 9/11 hijacker, alleging members of the Saudi royal family supported al Qaeda.

Zacarias Moussaoui, who pleaded guilty in 2005 to six terror-related charges, makes the allegations in a sworn statement contained in a brief submitted Tuesday as part of an ongoing civil case by the families of 9/11 victims.

In the late 1990s, Moussaoui says, he was tasked by Osama bin Laden to create a digital database cataloging al Qaeda's donors. Every day for two or three months, he says, he entered names of the group's donors into a Toshiba computer, along with how much they gave.



Moussaoui, who has been in U.S. custody for more than 13 years, said the list featured high-profile people, including several members of the Saudi Royal family, whom he named in his testimony.
