    Yup. And there you see the face of evil. And...he thinks he's doing right.

    General Keith Alexander served under both George W. Bush and Barack H. Obama, almost as if both of them had the same mind and agenda... or we getting their agenda from the same people (hint, not the voting public).

    ^I think it's more like this.

    I need to find some links on it, but just recently heard about a former 30+ year CIA veteran who retired and blew the whistle on quite a few things in gubment, one of which was the 'elite higher power' that pulls the strings behind the scenes. Kinda like the whole Bilderbergers thing, yada yada.

    He ended up dead, supposedly of natural causes, but an autopsy reveals traces of arsenic poisoning.

    I saw this chase live on the morning news today...

    http://www.nbcnews.com/news/crime-c...tch-car-chase-suspect-tied-amber-alert-n50801

    It was in progress as I had the morning news on. But I saw the helicopter video of him hijacking the second car. No weapon. Tough call, but I can't help but think that the guy in that car, if he new any self defense at all, could have dropped him.

    But...never can tell. Armchair quarterbacking. And there was a woman in the car to, who knows.

    Didn't notice that until you mentioned it. You may be right. Hope the guy isn't just helplessly caught in the cogs of society. That happens. Too often.

    I'd rather take bluffing than a war. I think it's been made pretty clear that Ukraine DOES NOT want a war over this, they'd rather give up Crimea than have a war. So if we can do all our bluffing and political fluff to maybe make Russia back down a bit it's worth it.

    I agree. But not my point. The point is all the bluster from our administration, which EVERYONE ON THE PLANET knows is a hollow bluff. Just makes Obama (which I don't mind) and by extension, the USA (which I do mind) look like dithering, clueless idiots.

    As for Kerry, after Syria, he's an international punchline. He's our version of the Iraqi Information Minister.
