In a statement released on Sunday, the Syrian Foreign Ministry said that Damascus does not possess chemical weapons as it implemented its obligations to turn in its entire chemical weapons stockpile to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). The statement further noted that certain regional and Western countries might supply chemical munitions to the militants fighting against the Damascus government in an attempt to make up an excuse for “premeditated aggression” on Syria. http://news360.com/article/258460210
Last week, the House and Senate voted to rubber stamp President Obama’s war plans for the Middle East. Both bodies, on a bipartisan basis, authorized the US to begin openly training and arming the rebels who have been fighting for three years to overthrow the Assad government in Syria.
Although the Syrian government has also been fighting ISIS and related extremist groups for three years, the US refuses to speak to the Syrians and has warned Assad not to interfere with the coming US attack on sovereign Syrian territory
President Obama promised that airstrikes alone would “degrade and destroy” ISIS, telling the US military in a speech last week that:
“The American forces that have been deployed to Iraq do not and will not have a combat mission… I will not commit you and the rest of our armed forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq.”
But of course any US troops sent into a war zone are “combat” troops. And more are on their way.
While the president was swearing that there would be no boots on the ground, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, was in open disagreement. General Dempsey told the Senate Armed Services Committee last week that US forces would need to embed with Iraqi or Kurdish troops in combat situations under certain circumstances.
The limited mission the president promised just weeks ago has already greatly escalated, and now threatens to become another major regional war. In reality, however, this is just a continuation of the 24 year US war on Iraq that President George Bush began in 1990 and candidate Obama promised to end as President.
Under last week’s authorization bill, the president would have authority to train 5,000 fighters in Saudi Arabia for insertion into the civil war in Syria. This is in effect a re-arrangement of the deck chairs. To this point the training was carried out by the CIA in Jordan and Turkey. Now, the program will be moved to the Pentagon and to Saudi Arabia.
The CIA training of the rebels thus far has resulted in a direct pipeline of weapons from “vetted moderates” to the al-Qaeda affiliated al-Nusra Front and to the very ISIS that the administration claims to be fighting. In July, a full brigade of 1,000 fighters from a US-backed rebel group joined ISIS! Of course they took their US-provided weapons and training with them, some of which will certainly be used against the rapidly increasing US military personnel in the region.
That Saudi Arabia is considered a suitable place to train Syria’s future leaders must be some kind of sick joke. While ISIS was beheading two American journalists – as horrific as that is – the repressive Saudi theocracy was beheading dozens of its own citizens, often for relatively minor or religious crimes.
If we want to stop radical terrorists from operating in Syria and Iraq, how about telling our ally Saudi Arabia to stop funding and training them? For that matter, how about the US government stops arming and training the various rebel groups in Syria and finally ends its 24 year US war on Iraq.
There are 200 million people bordering the countries where ISIS is currently operating. They are the ones facing the threat of ISIS activity and expansion. Let them fight their own war, rather than turning the US military into the mercenary army of wealthy Gulf states. Remember, they come over here because we are over there. So let’s not be over there any longer.

My talk with Alicia Meyerink about finding peace and happiness in a world of work, loans and debt. We discuss the student loan trap, how it strangles young people, and how our system can keep people in an agitated state of worry and fear. Alicia, a nurse and student, who works with people with mental problems, talks about finding a deeper sense of self and happiness within the system which can rob us of our well being if we are not really conscious and careful. www.jasonliosatos.com
Host: George Knapp
Guests: Doug Swanson, Stapleton Grey, Bill Friedman
George Knapp presided over an evening of true crime stories, beginning in the first hour with investigative journalist Doug Swanson, who shared the astonishing tale of Benny Binion—a rip-roaring saga of murder, money, and the making of Las Vegas. Swanson traced the evolution of Binion's criminal career from his early years traveling throughout Texas with "roving tribes of gamblers," to his days in Dallas where he amassed enormous wealth and power, and ultimately to Las Vegas at a time when organized crime was just beginning to take hold in the city. Over the course of his appearance, Swanson detailed how the charismatic Binion ruthlessly eliminated his rivals yet also became a beloved figure in Sin City, creating the World Series of Power and mentoring casino magnate Steve Wynn.
In the second hour, Stapleton Grey, the son of a Mafia hit man and a Bible-thumping, scripture-quoting Southern Baptist mother, recalled growing up in a family of crime and Jesus, while shadowed by the FBI and mercenaries. He explained that his father "took a wrong path in life" after his professional football career was curtailed following an injury and he took a job as a "knee breaker" for the mafia as a way of feeding his pain pill addiction. As his father's criminal career escalated, Grey said, he eventually got arrested for trafficking stolen art which led to him working with the CIA running guns to Latin America. Following that, the horrific murder of a family in Texas saw Grey's father become a wanted fugitive for nine months until he died in a shootout with the police who sought to bring him to justice.
In the latter half of the program, Bill Friedman, author and researcher of mafia casino crimes, detailed the true history of organized crime, illegal gambling, and the politics of law enforcement. He observed that the mass production of cars caused a massive change in both crime and law enforcement throughout America. Friedman explained that it allowed criminals to quickly flee the scene of their crime and establish safe havens in cities which were accessible via the newly created highway system. Additionally, he said, it forced authorities to adapt to new challenges such as high speed chases and jurisdiction issues. The automobile proved to be such a powerful tool for criminals, Friedman revealed, that infamous bank robber John Dillinger once wrote to the Ford Motor Company and thanked them for producing such a fast car that it allowed him to escape capture.
Regarding the politics of law enforcement, Friedman was specifically critical of former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover who he described as vastly unqualified for the job and focused more on consolidating his own power. "He believed that his job was not to catch criminals," Friedman said, "but to make people feel safe in their beds at night." As such, the FBI under Hoover did not attempt to take down organized crime and, instead, became "an enormous publicity agency" which released falsified statistics and celebrated Hoover as a quasi-celebrity. Additionally, Friedman declared, the FBI focused on collecting dirt on politicians and celebrities as a way of protecting Hoover's status as director of the agency and influencing national politics.
Kevin Kostelnik and Benny Wills are the creators of Joycamp, a group of satirists specializing in raw satire that tears down the social norms. They term what they do "comedy awareness."

Rapidly mutating Ebola virus would kill 1.2 million people if it goes airborne, expert predicts (NaturalNews) There's a chance that the currently circulating Ebola virus could go rogue and become airborne, and a scientist from Michigan State University warns that more than one million people could die as a result. If Francis Smart's econometric simulation model is accurate, as many as 1.2 million people could lose their lives from an airborne mutation of the disease, the latest in the ongoing outbreak saga sweeping west Africa.
On the recent strength of the U.S. dollar, David Morgan of Silver-Investor.com, says, “John Exter’s upside down pyramid explains it very well. The derivative markets blow up and you go down the pyramid of liquidity. The step above the run to gold is the U.S. dollar. Most people who are under educated about money think if you have physical dollars under your mattress, you are in the safest position you could possibly be in. If you have all of your savings in physical greenback, you don’t have to worry about a bank failure. That is the most important step until that doesn’t work. When that doesn’t work, faith in the dollar is lost or being lost, then where do you go? The answer is you go to money that has lasted for 5,000 years. So, to see the dollar have all this strength and look good, that’s just the step before you go to the last step, which is a run to gold. So, it (the strength of the dollar) doesn’t surprise me. It’s part of the process . . . and the run to the dollar is a precursor that is absolutely necessary before the next step down the pyramid. . . . This is the big picture, and I see how things narrow down and why precious metals are so important in today’s financial system.”

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is, perhaps, the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and un-mint the modern ledger-entry currency.” Major L L B Angus
The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or so dependent on its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system will bear its burdens without complaint and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.

"Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government, applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers.
This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world.
By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished."
