MSNBC beating drum for war.
Initially, MSNBC kept asking guests how Obama could get Congress to vote for bombing--as though that were a desirable goal.

Now that people are talking about voluntary action by Syria to end this insane crisis, Alex Wagner is trying to say that a non bombing resolution is unsatisfactory.

Modest Proposal: Let's arm Alex Wagner and parachute her into Syria, if she is so anxious to see America start a Middle Eastern conflagration.

1. Tamryn Hall now picking up the drum:
"How can this (new proposal) be good news?"

Are you fucking kidding me, Tamryn?

"Isn't this just a stalling tactic to buy more time for Syria?"

And she is very obviously reading off a pad of paper to her right.

I guess they did not have time to get the war drums onto the teleprompter.

3. I told you before.
If there was a critical piece of propaganda they wanted out there, they would push it through MSNBC because MSNBC has retained "some" credibility while the others have none.

I also said, expect the Administration to relax their attacks on medical marijuana if there was a critical issue (like the proposed war) and they needed a bone to throw to the left.

I also suggested that the Administration would take actions that would result in a depressed Democratic voter turnout in 2014 just as they did leading up to the 2010 election.

If I can see this millions of others can too.

5. A whole panel now, including Hayes, Maddow, Matthews, Sharpton, etc.

Matthews: "The President made a strong moral argument for taking action."

Well, maybe, if you don't count the absence of evidence that Assad was responsible or explain why it is moral for us to bomb innocent Syrian civilians, no matter who used the chemicals.

Still, there is lots of international law that says you don't cowboy up and war wherever on the planet you wish on your own, when you have not been attacked That's what the UN is for. That's okay for us to violate, but not a treaty on chemical weapons to which Syria never became a party?

If so, let's stop being hypocrites at huge expense to the US and shut down the UN, as Republicans wish. Make a stunning high rise office building or condo.

What, besides an enormous expense, is the difference between shutting it down and ignoring it?

Geez, as lousy as the intel was for the Iraq War, at least Bushco went in to the UN with their bare faces hanging out and presented whatever crap they were using to justify that war.

6. I'm watching MSNBC right now.
They are on the pro war band wagon now. It's disgusting.
