Blessed Are the Peacemakers

[ Ed. note – The video above is of a townhall meeting conducted last week by Rep. Tulsi Gabbard in her home state of Hawaii. If you want to hear the congresswoman discuss the situation in Syria, fast forward the video to about 10 minutes in. Gabbard, who introduced the Stop Arming Terrorists act in Congress and who has drawn fire for challenging the media lies about Syria (most recently for questioning the narrative that the Assad government was behind the April 4 chemical weapons attack), is one of a number of a small number of prominent Americans who have been a voice of sanity in a world seemingly gone mad and moving closer and closer to war.

Israeli Air Force Trains to Take on Russian-Made Missile Systems

[ Ed. note – Looks like the neocons are making steady progress toward sparking that “splendid little war” they’ve been trying to get started for a while now. The following is a collection of news stories that have appeared over the past few days. ]

The Israeli Air Force is participating in an extensive international exercise in Greece alongside pilots from America, Greece, Italy and the UAE, according to reports.

Is World War 3 on the Way?

Is World War 3 on the way? Maybe yes, maybe no. But it’s a question I have pondered a number of times in a number of posts dating back over the past three years. I will ponder it again here.

As before when I have put up posts of this nature, a number of disturbing signs point to increased cause for concern, but before I get to these, let me show you a video. It’s one featuring David Icke, which I posted nearly three years ago, in July of 2014, in a post which I entitled “The Vortex.” It was one of the first posts I ever put up basically speculating on the possibility of a coming war.

Eve of Destruction? A Sobering Look at How Dangerous the US-Russia Conflict Now Is

[ Ed. note – Recently a small group of House members sent a letter to Obama asking him to adopt a clearly-stated policy of no first-use of nuclear weapons. It is perhaps a sign of the times, and of how oblivious to rational thinking our leaders have become, that out of 435 members of the House, only  22 signed onto the letter. (H/T Ariadna).

Russia Embarks on Nationwide Civil Defense Drills; US Considers Military Strikes on Syrian Troops

[ Ed. note – Some pretty appalling developments in the last 24-48 hours. The Russian embassy in Damascus has been shelled, apparently by Al-Nusra, which, for all practical purposes, is a US-proxy. No one was injured, but it kind of echoes John Kirby’s comment about sending Russian troops home in “body bags.”

Guest Post: ‘What If?’

[ Ed. note – I listened to the BBC’s interview with Sergei Lavrov today. I don’t know the name of the gentleman who conducted the interview, but it was very much as if the man had “no ears to hear,” as Jesus would have put it. Lavrov patiently attempted to explain the situation in Syria– that foreign powers, including the US, have provided support to armed terrorist groups–but it was as if the interviewer had not heard a single word he said. The Russian foreign minister may as well have been talking to himself. To say that the BBC host was obtuse would perhaps be an understatement. It is outrageous that British taxpayers are forced to pay taxes to pay this man’s salary.
