    A very good and clear depiction of the actual situation and reasons for the current conflict. Congratulations and thank you. (And since I’m at it and the two of you are here, I always appreciate your comments, you and Respectful Troll.)

    As to the topic of the toon.

    The same people who were against any involvement in Iraq and now only to eager to support Obama’s plan of attack.

    Fortunately, cooler heads have prevailed (Russian…go figure) and Assad will release control of these weapons to an outside authority.

    And the hubbub the result of …… greed.

    Yesterday’s Libs: Why, OJ got a fair trial and the evidence clearly showed his pure as the white driven snow innocence of killing Nicole.

    I think you have misunderstood Michael’s post. He knows the meanings of “yesterday”, and he was using the one which means “some time in the past, not today”, in order to make the point that “yesterday” the US was an occupying force in Iraq, even if it isn’t today. At least that’s how I understood him.

    I disagree. Michael was replying to the previous comment: “Were not occupying Iraq.” Michael said, “A fact-free comment. The cartoon said, ‘Yesterday’ and the US occupied Iraq for 7 years.” The fact free comment (not cartoon) was the comment that we are not occupying Iraq. Michael pointed out that the cartoon said “Yesterday” (that is, some time in the past, not today) and then pointed out that the US did occupy Iraq in the past. His comment makes no sense unless he is commenting on the comment that the US is not currently occupying Iraq. Gosh, It’s annoying when we have to explain Michael’s ironic posts, do we also have to explain his posts when he’s being serious?

    Michael: I’m sure you’re aware it was some time ago as well that the U.S. was providing security for a pipeline from Caspian fields to the Med.. There’s a lot been going on in the “pipeline” stuff, including the REAL reason we invaded Afghanistan, and installed Karzai, but so far, they still don’t have the pipeline there..

    Given the international support for the new “Russian” plan to get everyone involved in Syria, not just the U.S., with a plan even Israel will endorse, and given Obama’s long reluctance to support war and military action, and Kerrry’s, is it possible they’ve just very wisely “punk’d” all the chickenhawks and morons?

    Let us hope the “community” will not only remove the offending weapons , but back it up with action in the ICC , that organization the US has refused to support in the past.

    You may have noticed I was talking about the double standard Libs have.
    BTW there was no gun.
    You sure like stepping in it, doncha?

    It might depend on what his news sources were, PG24. I saw two news stories and read one article where it was stated he had a gun on his person but did not draw it. Prior to submitting this comment I checked for recent updates and that element of the story is no longer being mentioned.
    However, the prosecutors are, according to the story I just read, deciding whether to charge him under mandatory arrest laws associated with domestic abuse statutes for his punching her father in the nose.
    If you have a correction for me, please feel free to educate me.

    While we are talking about other news stories, here is a good one from Monday’s Tampa Bay Times: Egypt
    They eat spies

    Remember that swan detained by cops after being accused of spying for Israel because it carried an electronic device that turned out to be a wildlife tracker? Well, turns out it was a stork (some news reports at the time also called it a duck or a bird), and despite being found innocent, it has met a grizzly end. The story was almost a happy one: The stork, named Menes, was released to a conservation area by Nature Conservation Egypt. But shortly after, flew off to an island in the Nile, where he was captured and eaten. ‘Storks have been part of the Nubian diet for thousands of years, so the actual act of eating storks is not in itself a unique practice,’ the group wrote on its Facebook page. ‘However, the shortlived success story of getting Menes released was not enough to keep him safe till he exited Egypt.’
