  1. To NotAVeteran: ALL OF US SEE IN THE ME IS WASTE. Waste and destruction brought on by the kabalist, illuminati banksters and their clique who own everything worth owning and every politician to speak of. Write your Sens. I wrote Sen. Burr, he said I had to be “more careful” of what I write. So a patriot telling the truth has to be careful but neocons spinning lies are in the clear.

    • “All any of us see in the ME is waste……..” Saddam ( trusted ally ) and Khadafy ( didn’t do the German discoteque or Pan Am 103 ) should still be running stable countries. Syria should have been left alone…but the insufferable tribe can’t leave anyone alone..

  2. NAV2: Much more important Is-U.S. to know that Russians will target anything & everything that supports Is-U.S. Very demoralizing for Is-U.S. Pumping stations etc. easily rebuilt.

    Even before a peace deal, BRICS nations are signing contracts for rebuilding and infrastructure development (e.g., US$300 Million telecom infrastructure deal just signed by Syria with China).

    NATO nations, Saudis, Qataris, Turks & Israelis probably won’t get many large contracts when victors build & rebuild the Mideast. If peace deal not done soon, U.S. workers & others will lose bigtime.

  3. Those long range supersonic jets are amazing. They are getting on to this huge problem with devastating efficiency.

  4. BOYCOTT ALL NON MORAL CORPORATIONS – make that famous “invicible hand” of capitalism finally show it exists……

  5. Why not boycott them altogether? It is one way to express our resistance to those blatantly corrupt corporations…
