On The Road To War! – In Saner Thought

British Maj. Gen. Chris Ghika, however, has raised serious doubts about that. Maj. Gen. Ghika said that there has been “no increased threat from Iranian-backed forces,” despite the claims from US officials, mostly Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and John Bolton. Perhaps more damningly, Ghika says he does not believe there is any daylight between Britain’s assessment of “no increased threat” and the assessment from US intelligence. In other words, the US officials are lying about the intelligence, presumably to justify the growing US buildup and to keep hyping the possibility of a war with Iran. US Central Command, however, angrily shot back contradicting Ghika, insisting his statement runs counter to established US position on the matter.

From Sanctioning Iran to War?

To be clear-eyed about this danger, from all available evidence, the Iranian strategists are preparing to not fall into a US laid trap by acting first and provoking a US military response that will start a war. However, once they think that US is about to start bombing Iran, they will surely take what they consider to be appropriate asymmetric actions. And therein lies the dangers of a conflagaration that can easily get out of any great power’s control.

It’s Lies Once Again! – In Saner Thought

This is just the sort of LIES that gets our asses in trouble over and over again. We trusted the Israeli intel in Lebanon in the 1980s and we kill about 100 innocent people trying to kill one person and again in the 80s when we trusted their intel and we missed Qaddafi and finally the intel from Israel has been wrong about Iranian nukes for 25 years….and now we are trusting their inept intel once again….. What do we pay the CIA to do? Maybe confirm the intel before we do something stupid like Iraq. Just a thought.

Man Arrested For Threatening to Kill Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Other Democrats

A Florida man was arrested today after allegedly leaving threatening voice messages for Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, Congressman Eric Swalwell, and Senator Cory Booker. In a message to Tlaib, 49-year-old John Kless reportedly called the congresswoman a “Taliban bitch” and threatened to throw Omar off the Empire State Building. In his messsage to Booker, Kless repeatedly called him the n-word; to Swalwell, he promised he would be on his “death bed” along with other Democrats. Kless also took the time to voice support for President Trump. Shocker. [Miami New Times]

Internal NRA Memos Reveal Hidden Payments to Enrich Top Executives

According to interviews and to documents that I obtained — federal tax forms, charity records, contracts, corporate filings, and internal communications — a small group of NRA executives, contractors, and vendors has extracted hundreds of millions of dollars from the nonprofit’s budget, through gratuitous payments, sweetheart deals, and opaque financial arrangements. Memos created by a senior NRA employee describe a workplace distinguished by secrecy, self-dealing, and greed, whose leaders have encouraged disastrous business ventures and questionable partnerships, and have marginalized those who object. “Management has subordinated its judgment to the vendors,” the documents allege. “Trust in the top has eroded.”
