      this is my house.

      An elderly couple had dinner at another couple’s house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.

      The two gentlemen were talking in the living room, and the host said, “Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly.”

      The other man, their guest, asked, “What is the name of the restaurant?”

      The first man thought and thought and finally said, “What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know….. The one that’s red and has thorns.”

      “Do you mean a Rose?” replied his guest.

      “Yes, that’s the one,” replied the host.

      He then turned towards the kitchen and yells, “Hey, Rose, what’s the name of that restaurant we went to last night?”

      MSNBC’s O’Donnell: Maybe Putin Masterminded Chemical Attack So Trump Could Look Good by Striking Syria

      On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” anchor Lawrence O’Donnell stated that “if Vladimir Putin masterminded the last week in Syria, he has gotten everything he could have asked for.” O’Donnell then floated a theory that Putin told Syria’s Bashar al-Assad to launch a small chemical attack that was big enough to attract media attention and prompt President Trump into launching a missile strike, which would then change the subject from Russian influence.

      O’Donnell said, “[W]ouldn’t it be nice if it was just completely, totally, absolutely impossible to suspect that Vladimir Putin orchestrated what happened in Syria this week so that his friend in the White House could have a big night, with missiles, and all of the praise he’s picked up over the last 24 hours? Wouldn’t it be so nice if you couldn’t even in your wildest dreams imagine a scenario like that?”

      […]

      O’Donnell later added, “It’s perfect, just perfect. I wish it wasn’t. If Vladimir Putin, if, if, if Vladimir Putin masterminded the last week in Syria, he has gotten everything he could have asked for. Vladimir Putin was essentially the man in charge of making sure that Syria got rid of all of its chemical weapons under a deal with the Obama administration. And so it makes perfect sense to question whether President Bashar al-Assad would have checked with his most important patron, Vladimir Putin, before using chemical weapons that Vladimir Putin was supposed to have helped get rid of. It would be terribly embarrassing to Vladimir Putin if President Assad had exposed Vladimir Putin as having completely failed to get rid of those chemical weapons. You wouldn’t want to be Bashar al-Assad in a conversation with Vladimir Putin after that, unless you had a conversation with him before that. Unless Vladimir Putin said, ‘I have an idea. go ahead, do a small chemical attack, nothing like the big ones you’ve done in the past, just big enough to attract media attention. So that my friend in the White House will see it on TV. And then, Donald Trump can fire some missiles at Syria, that’ll do no real damage, and then the American news media will change the subject from Russian influence in the Trump campaign and the Trump transition and the Trump White House.’ It’s perfect.”

      no he has not. McMasters reorg’d the committee right after his own appointment. Bannon no longer sits on The Principle’s Committee but he can and does still attend meetings. McMasters added Niki Haley and Rick Perry. It’s a simple re-organization by the new chief that was jumped on by the MSM to paint it as some sort of Palace intrigue. Since that didn’t work, they’re trying to sell a story that he and Jared Kushner are at each other’s throats.

      The media wants the Trump WH to go down in flames, Bannon is probably the most hated man in Washington, even more so than Trump, anything to make him look bad even if they have to make it up.

      President Trump’s controversial chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, was removed from the National Security Council on Wednesday, Fox News confirmed.

      Bannon was put on the NSC’s “Principals Committee” as a check on former National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn to make sure Flynn carried through with a directive to depoliticize the NSC, a senior administration official told Fox News.

      “[Obama administration National Security Adviser] Susan Rice operationalized the NSC during the last administration,” Bannon said in a statement. “I was put on to ensure that it was de-operationalized. [National Security Adviser] General [H.R.] McMaster has returned the NSC to its proper function.”

      Bannon only attended one meeting of the Principals Committee and Flynn was fired from his role in mid February after misleading Vice President Mike Pence about conversations he had with a Russian official.

      With McMaster replacing Flynn, Trump saw no need for Bannon to stay on the committee as a check on Flynn, the official said.

      Bannon is still permitted to go to NSC meetings.

      Why do you say any of us has been fooled by Trump? First, don’t think just because Trump said his mind was changed by pictures of little babies is something any of us buy. I don’t know what happened, and I’m with CW on this, waiting to see how things play out.

      And I think we all remember Trump promising to take out ISIS. Just wait and watch.

      Egyptian police arrest five people for using children to stage fake ‘Aleppo’ footage

      Five people in Port Said allegedly making fake videos purporting to show the wreckage of air strikes in the Syrian city of Aleppo have been arrested, the Egyptian Interior Ministry has said.

      The videographer, his assistants and the parents of two children who appear in the footage were detained after police managed to trail the would-be camera crew to a building site awaiting demolition, a statement on Monday said.

      The team reportedly admitted they had planned to distribute their work on social media, pretending it showed scenes of the injured and destruction in Aleppo, the embattled northern Syrian city which has just fallen back under government control after four years of fighting between the regime and Sunni rebels.

      It was not immediately clear what charges had been brought against the five. The Independent has contacted the Egyptian authorities for clarification.

      In the distinctly amateur raw videos and stills released by the Interior Ministry, an eight-year-old girl wears a white dress and bandages covered in red stains, and holds a teddy bear. A 12-year-old boy is also interviewed about what life is like under intensive Russian-backed Syrian government air strikes.

      The girl’s dress, covered in red paint, was what caught the attention of a police officer driving by, the ministry said.

      In the distinctly amateur raw videos and stills released by the Interior Ministry, an eight-year-old girl wears a white dress and bandages covered in red stains, and holds a teddy bear. A 12-year-old boy is also interviewed about what life is like under intensive Russian-backed Syrian government air strikes.

      The girl’s dress, covered in red paint, was what caught the attention of a police officer driving by, the ministry said.

      Meanwhile terrorists bomb a Coptic Christian church in the Nile Delta killing 25 partitioners attending Palm Sunday Mass.

If that were the case then we could fire back and tell them all to go live in mud huts or teepees and get rid of their cell phones, lights and stoves since it was OUR culture that produced our standard of living that they all seem to enjoy so much!

      Where to begin with?

      You remember when Trump said during the campaign that the Iran Deal was the worst deal ever negotiated. You (I assume) and I would agree. So he either knew what he was speaking of or it were only populist words and he now faces reality.

      If he knew what was in the deal and which consequences came out oft he deal it makes one wonder how he could say „he will come to an agreement with Russia in Syria and there is no need to take out Assad anymore (he even said this one week before he bombed the Shayrat airbase“.

      Hardly to see how this should work. Why?

      Putin had to be pressed very hard to agree to the deal but the moment he agreed he changed his economical and geostrategical position immediately. He backed away from the West position in the ME, especially from Israel und turned his interests toward Iran together with China. Russia and China face both Sunni terrorism not Shia terrorism so it makes sense for them to cooperate with Iran and Syria. Russia is negotiating big arm deals with Iran to compensate their loss in oil/gas revenues. As we both know they can’t fix the deals until 2020 (which can easily be circumvented) and the signals from the West (EU, GB and the U.S.A.) are a clear „no“ for an exeption. Therefore the Russians will say „no“ to the re-negotiation of the Iran Deal.

      Another point: removing Assad from power and replacing him with whom? Al Qaeda in Syria/al Nusra/As Jabhat Fatah al-Sham or however they call themselves today? The so called FSA (Free Syrian Army) has mostly vanished and the remaining rest fights along with the islamists vom al Nusra/al Qaeda and beside ISIS there is no other group in sight. But handing over the sunni wahabis Syria would alienate the sunni governments in the ME and the influence of the U.S.A. in the ME would go South and a much larger “civil war” would break out. You would either have to send in large amounts of troops to the ground or the ME including Israel would go up in flames. This would be a hughe “victory” for the islamists.

      Btw.: the Shayrat airbase is working again, Syrian jets are starting and landing there to fight al Nusra in Idlib. Your president has spent USD 100+ Millions to take out an airbase for one or two days. This is anything but not a powerful sign. Neither politically nor military. On the contrary: it has now become more dangerous for the USAF to operate in Syria since the answer from Putin had been to cut the communication and will now install more S-300 und S-400.

      I still don’t see how Trump fooled us. Everything you’ve said could just be a learning curve since he’s only been in office a couple of months. And I don’t see how treating Russia as a friend (they should be. Russia is more western than eastern regardless of its geographic placement in the world) and letting them deal with Assad is against our best interest.

      If had really wanted to hurt the ME all we needed to do was nuke a few cities and let the world bitch about it later. Nuke mecca and let them cry over lost lady-parts. The ME should be Europe and Russia’s problem – not ours.

      Really, we should be worried about our own hemisphere! It’s a total mess down South and that’s where our influence should be directed. The only country that seems to have its act together is MAYBE Chile!

      You’re assuming this is why we voted for him. It’s not. We want that damned wall on our southern border and the illegals GONE! We also want a halt to the influx of moslems in this country.

      Trump makes deals for a living. We really aren’t worried about some deal with Iran that they’ve already broken.

      Truly, we voted for him because he was an outsider and our interests are self-interests. We don’t particularly CARE what’s happening on the other side of the world. We care about what’s happening HERE.

      The only other caveat I’d throw out there is we also want our troops back home! Let the ME go to hell in its own special way! Maybe keep an aircraft carrier or 3 out to where we can level something if we needed to. Also, give Israel those refueling planes they’ve been asking for and then unleash them. They’d take care of a lot of this stuff for us if we let them!

      @ Guggi:

      excellent, ok.

      Speaking only for myself, I do not know what happened. It appears very unlikely that Assad did this. But I do not believe the Trump admin was duped into anything. It’s quite possible that they’re lying about what happened but they do indeed know what happened.

      Also, I have no idea if the missile strike was a good idea. The stated goal was to remove the chem weapons (not to disable the airbase, as your post seems to imply). Taken at face-value, that the use of chem weapons WILL provoke a response and this is a one-off and done, I can live with it. And if the media reports I’m hearing about the gov’ts in Europe are correct, they’ve been supportive also

      But then comes Nikki Haley at the U.N. saying Assad has to go and at that point the game seems to change and the question is exactly what you’ve posited. But she said something else that no one seems to remember: That everybody has to get back to the table and also start abiding by the terms of the ceasefire/truce. That has been an overlooked point.

      Something else that people are forgetting: Trump promised – and was supported by everybody that voted for him – that he’s going to wipe ISIS off the planet. If you look at a map of Syria and see the territory ISIS occupies, it’s terrifying.

      So, if I had to ascertain some kind of ‘message’ out of all this today it would be: no chem stuff and remember that ceasefire because the U.S. does.

      Putin can have his snit. Tillerson meets with Lavrov later this week.

      Long story short, I am a long way from drawing any conclusions about this. It hasn’t finished playing out, this isn’t even the end of Act 1.
      I can read the foreign blogs and I see how outraged everyone is (not to mention disappointed in Trump) but I think it’s a hair-trigger response to a hideously complex situation that I don’t feel I have enough info (yet) to develop a reasonable opinion about.

      They stayed mum because obama was president. That’s no longer the case. Like I said, Trump is a deal-maker by trade and I can’t see him abiding by a one-sided deal his predecessor made. So it doesn’t really matter if China and Russia support Iran as we can stay out of their way, but there’s no reason WE should “help” Iran. As long as they leave Israel alone – and Trump supports Israel 100% – let the place burn!

      I am in agreement with Eagle in that we don’t REALLY know all the details of what’s going on. I’d point out that Trump gave Russia and therefore Assad a 2 hour warning before he dropped a single bomb. And those bombs “missed” most of their targets, meaning it was was some sort of message. To whom? I have no idea.

      And I wouldn’t pay any attention to what the media is saying – here or where you are. They are going to be in hysterics no matter WHAT Trump does. So take it with a grain of salt. Like Reagan and George W the next 4 years every ill in the world will be laid at Trumps feet regardless of the actual facts.

      It’s been a couple other places, but I can’t say what their source was. Could be the same Russian TV news. Regardless, we know not a lot of damage was done to the place either by Assad’s bombers (why else would Egyptians try and film faux chemical death scenes using little kids in red paint splattered clothing complete with the obligatory stuffed animal clutched by one of the children) or by ours.

      The reason for the missile strike on Shayrat airbase was a symbolic warning to …. The Russians (to keep their pet Assad under control, The North Koreans, to not screw with this new US Administration, The Chinese to not screw with the new Administration and to get their arses in gear to sort out Kin Jong Un or the US will, The Iranians, don’t mess with this new Administration or we are capable of causing you serious pain and massive loss of income, The MSM to start taking the new Administration seriously and to ‘get over the Russian meme’.

      McFarlane’s now-former colleague, deputy national security adviser Dina Powell – a former Goldman Sachs executive – will remain in the position, the source said.

      I’m hearing ‘stuff’ about Powell – she’s good buddies w/ValJar, etc. I think I heard something about her husband’s connections to Soros but I have to go back and check that.

      To lose one NSC member is an accident, to lose two is an error and to lose more is a tragedy. Expect Dina Powell to find alternative employment once the dust has settled with the departure of her fellow ‘swampie’ Mc Farland.

      Welcome to the world of PsyOps folks. The deeper down the rabbit hole the more complex and confusing it gets. It’s designed for just that reason folks. Occam’s Razor rarely fails to highlight the truth when it’s applied objectively.

      Ask the questions:-

      Who gains from the action?
      Who loses from the action?
      Who increases power from the response to the initial action?
      Who are the critics of the action?
      Who profits from the action?

      Come to a resolution based on this and add a caveat for the current unknown factors that may change the assumptions flowing from this analysis.

      Then go with that and try to find negation factors for your own assumptions and skip looking for justification for your assumptions. Fight against self justification relentlessly as that destroys objectivity. Never ‘situate your own appreciation’ as that leads to the ‘dark side’ and plays to your own prejudices.

      @ Guggi:
      Beware of emotions as they destroy rational objectivity. Beware even more of people who attempt to stoke emotions as they are almost always on the side of lies.

      Emotion has its place in society. It’s there in spades when it comes to lour loved ones but emotions should never mix with war unless it’s you who are using emotions as a weapon against your enemy.

      Here is the Pentagon’s explanation of why they believe only Assad could have conducted the attack against Idlib. I am not qualified to have an opinion of the merits of the explanation so have at it……..

      They said they believe the Syrian regime conducted the April 4 chemical weapons attack in Khan Sheikhoun, a small city in Idlib province, because they were at risk of losing an important airfield to the Syrian opposition in neighboring Hama province.

      “We think that this attack is linked to a battlefield desperation decision to stop the opposition from seizing those key regime elements,” one official said.

      The US and German air forces are about to quit the Turkish Incirlik airbase because of restrictions that the Erdogan government is placing on them. They are about to move to the recently liberated base at Tabqa now names as Qayyarah-2 Operations Base and will house 2,500 US troops and host double the aircraft that the Russians now field in Syria. Interestingly it was a combined force of Kurds and Americans who took Tabqa from ISIS.

      So much for NATO allies cooperation. Turkey is now on the outer when it comes to NATO. They have proven to be unreliable allies on many occasions back as early as 2003. The winners are the Kurds who will use their control over Tabqa as another base from which to strengthen their control of Northern Syria and soothers Turkey. It looks as if Trump has chosen his ally in the Syrian civil war. Turkey will no doubt have a hissy fit but who cares. Expect Erdogan to use Syrian refugees as a weapon to extort EU cooperation that suits Turkish aims. The Germans may have a problem but Trump doesn’t care.

      Expect a summer of more massive refugee influxes into Europe as Erdogan vents his spleen.

      Several US military engineering teams are working round the clock to build a big new air base in northern Syria near Tabqa after completing the expansion of another four which are Hajar airport in the Rmelan region, two small air fields serving farm transport in Qamishli, which have been converted to military us; and a fifth in the Kurdish Kobani enclave north of Aleppo near the Syrian-Turkish border.

      Trump appears to be aiming to wipe out ISIS just as he said he would by stabilising the approaches to the base and wiping out all ISIS from the immediate area. Blocking Iran’s land and air access to Syria with the plug right in Iran’s face regardless of what Iraq’s Shi’a want. Iran is going to have to get past the US base in the future if it wants to directly supply Hezbollah in Western Syria. From now on Iran will have to ship all aide by sea, vastly complication its supply lines as Iranian ships have to pass through multiple choke points that can be turned off at will by the US and Egypt. The new base also provides the Syrian Kurdish-PYD-YPG with a military shield against the Turkish army.

      Again so much for NATO with a Turkish presence. Erdogan is finding out that two can play his game of threat and coercion.

      Hey don’t diss the PKK as communists are better than having to deal with theocratic Islamist crazies. Communists know when to back away in the face of overwhelming force. They value living, whereas the religion of death revels in dying for allah. The West dealt wit the communists for 70 years in Europe and even allied with them to knock out a bunch of National Socialists as well. Communists are rational and understand the principles of MAD. The Islamists not so much.

      The Kurds are also Sunnis at their core so don’t get too lala with them either.

      Right now it suits Western interests to ally with the Kurds. Sometime in the future perhaps not so much. That is how international relations work.

      PKK are purely political and therefore can be reasoned with. They will survive or die on their feet in a Kurdistan that has multiple parties all seeking to climb the slippery pole of power. Hell we deal with communist China that has killed tens of millions after all. When enough Kurds are killed by or through PKK then PKK will cease to exist. That is up to the Kurds to sort out. In the meantime communists are a good fit right now as long as they are killing Jihadists as far as I am concerned. I deal with Chinese communist murderers on a daily basis as does the rest of the West and their money spends just as well as that from democracies. The invading Turkey part is just fine by me at present if it claws back the Turks stole from the Kurds back in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The Kurds have a land problem with the Iraqis, the Iranians, the Syrians as well as the Turks. More power to their arm I say!

Tell me how a Turkish jour no of dubious pedigree would get access to operational aircrew assignments and then confirm that that crewman was murdered.

      True however it’s the control of Refugee jumping off points that actually counts rather than blanket classifications of refugees per se. Turkey is in complete control of the flow of refugees into Europe regardless of where they originate. Erdogan is using soft invasion as a weapon of Jihad against the West.

      We’ve been the midst of WWIII for a while now – only it’s not being treated as a war and most of the western leaders are choosing to lose it.

      Allegations of undisclosed sites[edit]

      The Economist reported in early October that Syria had disclosed 19 chemical weapons-related sites, whilst unnamed Western intelligence sources believed 45 sites to exist in total.[65] One U.S. official said it was not clear if the discrepancy is “a deception” or merely a “difference of definition” regarding what constitutes a chemical weapons site.

      @ Deplorable Barbarian:

      the concerned whites went after florida state to remove the seminole nick, well, boyhowdy did THAT backfire!

      the actual seminoles were quite po’d by the concerned whiteys concern about the name. see, the seminoles LOVE that mascot and the pre-game war horse / spear.

      I’m part Seminole (and Choctaw) and lived in Oklahoma for 5 years. LOTS of Indians there – and yes, they call themselves Indians. They HATE the touchy-feely PC native crap (their words). They know they lost to us in the battle for this land – BUT, they lost to a people who became the only super-power left on the planet. They take PRIDE in that! So watching us become a weak people insults them – and their ancestors memory – mightily! Again, their words!

      I do tribal law here at the firm. And I was surprised that yes indeed they DO refer to themselves as “Indians” and use the phrase “Indian Country.” Meanwhile it’s a lot of silly White liberals who posture using the phrase “Native Americans” or “Indigenous Peoples.”

      ok, I have to ask. How did Apache get to your/my part of the country? I’m Shawnee and Shawnee and Delaware were very common but I’ve never heard of any Apache around there, I thought they were all out west.

      I can’t figure out who is bringing more crazy to Twitter – Louise Mensch or Lawrence O’Donnell.

      O’Donnell may soon find himself going the way of Keith Olberdork and reduced to posting YouTube videos and ranting in 140 characters or less. I mean really, his whole theory is the Syrian air strike version of the 9/11 Truthers.

      And frankly, I don’t understand why everyone on the left are going bat guano cuckoo over an airfield strike. He didn’t ask for an increase in troop deployment, he didn’t bomb a population center.

      A lot’s being made of the fact that the air field wasn’t destroyed, and that proves that Trump’s not very competent if he missed that much. Uh, you idiot libs DO realize that (1) he wasn’t controlling the bomb drop a la Playstation 4 in the Oval Office and that (2) our guys in the air know precisely what they’re doing and precisely where to drop.

      If I had to guess, it’s an effective way of saying “these attacks of yours STOP now. If you do it again, I will take out your airfield, your landing strips AND your planes.”

      In my family you can see the Shawnee all the way thru my dad’s generation. There’s a picture of his father and all 3 sons and it looks like a pow wow. Then, in my generation is stopped. Out of the 10 grandchildren, only 2 of us got it, me and my cousin, the only male. And I’m not all that dark, but the cheekbones and the nose give it away.

      I could really do w/o the nose part

      It’s on the right, too. I’ve got some Brit internet friends/acquaintances and I’m not sure they’re even talking to me anymore. They are lit up because they think he was either duped into it by a false flag op that Assad obviously could not be guilty of, making Trump an idiot in thrall to the globalist cabal, OR he’s a fucking liar who fooled all the people who supported him and is going to get us into another Iraq.

      I get serious whiplash dodging everything. Just read upthread for the discussion among Guggi and others here. People in Europe who supported Trump are just livid.

      The sticking point really is that it looks to a lot of people that Assad didn’t do this. I’m doubtful myself. I’m just not ready to jump to conclusions about what did and what is happening.

      Both sides of my family have been here since before it was a country. One of my ancestors signed the Declaration of Independence. I’m English, Scot, Choctaw and Seminole. Blonde hair, blue eyes, have the high cheekbones and tan GREAT in the Summer!

      We have pictures like that! Out of a group of people only 2 where white – the rest Indians in white mans clothes. The 2 white people were my great grandfather and his brother. Everybody else was the in-laws. Great grandmother isn’t in the picture – only the fellas.

      curious

      WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States has concluded Russia knew in advance of Syria’s chemical weapons attack last week, a senior U.S. official said Monday.

      The official said a drone operated by Russians was flying over a hospital as victims of the attack were rushing to get treatment. Hours after the drone left, a Russian-made fighter jet bombed the hospital in what American officials believe was an attempt to cover up the usage of chemical weapons.

      I’m pretty sure CW had a link about that not too long ago. It’s like bath-salts on steroids, although I think they are both equally bad. You eat someones face off and I’m calling that a bad trip, although it was the norm for bath-salts.

      All of those prizes (Pulitzer, Nobel, etc.) have just become means for liberals to congratulate themselves for propaganda and other PC stuff. They no longer have any real meaning.
