It’s hard to keep up with events while traveling the Interstate and being NPR-dependent. We do get some BBC, and while Official Secrets prevents BBC from reporting on Britain, they do a better job reporting on the US than American news media.
That in mind, it appears that the Executive is diverting news attention to Syria and away from NSA spying. BBC says that US believes Syria has crossed the “Red Line,” a perception management device that will be used to justify full-scale attack on Syria. It’s only been a matter of creating a false-flag incident that doesn’t cause the rest of the world to gag laughing. But BBC says that Americans will only be sending “small arms.” Since Americans are already doing that and god only knows what else, it is safe, I think, to conclude that this is a mere attention-diversion tactic.
They still have to solve the Russian problem in Syria. Since Syria must be removed from Israel’s northern flank before an attack can be unleashed in Iran, it is safe to say that we are at peace for one more day. It’s a good thing. Americans are famous for bombing wedding parties in Afghanistan. Our daughter is getting married tomorrow. We don’t want no stinkin’ Obama drone attacks.
