Nobelol Laureate Bombs Syria

war is cool1


More than 50 airstrikes launched against ISIS

The U.S. with the support of several Middle East partners began a heavy bombardment of more than 50 airstrikes in Syria at 8:30 p.m. Monday night aimed at the headquarters and bases of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The airstrikes came just as world leaders convened for the first day of the United Nations annual meeting.

President Obama is expected to make a statement from the White House before leaving for New York and the Pentagon will brief reporters later in the morning, giving additional details on the first large-scale military action of Obama’s presidency.

Airstrikes were fired at check points in Al-Raqqa and Tal Abyad, as well, NBC News reported. While most of these ISIS bases were evacuated before the airstrikes, some ISIS fighters were confirmed to be killed.

Monday’s attacks are a part of the president’s military strategy to “degrade and ultimately destroy” ISIS, a brutal terrorist group that aims to create a large Islamic state ruled by Sharia law.

Syrians officials were informed of the strikes before they occurred, the State Department said on Tuesday morning.

I am enjoying watching Leftist Obama followers who held him up as the anti-war candidate of 2008 cheering for him starting another war. And this is definitely a new war – new enemy, new country.

For the record, I support using military action against the Islamic State. I also believe this is an illegal war because it is being done without Congressional authorization. I’m a stickler for legal technicalities like that.

I doubt the airstrikes will have had much positive effect considering how much advance warning Obama gave them. They had plenty of time to evacuate likely targets and/or place women and children around and in them as human shields/sacrifices.

For those of you that don’t Twitter you should really start. At times like these it is an excellent source of up-to-the-minute news mixed with lots of witty and half-witty repartee. Best of all, it’s FREE.

If you are technologically challenged, votermom is one of several TCH regulars who can guide you – she is a Twitter legend.

    When do the anti-war protest marches start?

    LOL on the “twitter legend”

    • The Klown says:

      Maybe one day you could do a “how to” post for people interested in joining the twitterverse.

    • elliesmom says:

      I thought Elliesdad would like Twitter, but he always resisted. He didn’t think he’d like Breaking Bad, either, but he’s well into season 2. So over the weekend and after 45 years he decided maybe he does like things I think he’d like so he set up a Twitter account. It was painful. He wants to customize it so he only has to see things he’d like to see. Like some of CNN’s tweets, but not all of them. He wants to see things that are funny, but not stupid. Like Twitter can assess his mood for the day and only send him what will strike his funny bone at that moment. So I locked myself in the woman cave for the day and just tuned the rants out. Later he kept coming in laughing about something the Onion had tweeted, and finally asked me how to find Iowahawk. But I would appreciate a Twitter lesson I could share with him because I’m not smart enough to teach him. 😉

      • votermom says:

        There’s really no big secrets afaik.
        The only non-obvious twitter tip I learned is that if you start a tweet with someone’s twitter name, that tweet will only show up on timelines of people who follow both of you.

        Also, it can be considered harassing by twitter if that person complains. It’s a trick a lot of obots use to get a twitter account suspended – bait a tweeter into responding directly to them, and when the tweeter loses their temper they can file a complaint with twitter.

        Another tip is to beware of spam accounts – if you get followed by an account which follows a lot of people but has zero or very few followers, check their timeline to see what they tweet. If it seems like spam block that account.
        Oh, and never click on twitter links if you’re not sure where they go, even from people you know. Accounts get hacked all the time (although luckily I never have).
        Never click on links that someone DMs to you.

      • votermom says:

        Your Hubby can make lists of accounts – like maybe a “funny tweeters” list, a sports list, etc and just click on those lists depending on the mood he’s in.

      • The Klown says:

        I’m not smart enough to teach him.

        You are smart enough to NOT teach him. That’s why you’re still married.

        • elliesmom says:

          When my kids grew up and moved out of the house, they doubled my IQ almost overnight. My husband brags about his smart wife, but he often treats me like I don’t have half a brain. I’m waiting for that moment when he decides I do know what I’m talking about. Maybe on his deathbed. “Honey, you were right. That contractor was a crook.” lol

      Yes please do a tutorial on twitter….

    I turned on MSNBS this morning to hear Joey (Scarborough) rip the Republicans (and the House) a new one and blame them for allowing pResident bronco bama to bomb Syria and go to war without Congressional approval. He wanted to know why Congress men/women are out campaigning when they ought to be in DC challenging BO. He named McCain, Graham, Boehner and then said he had “trouble” with Boehner in the past.
    Yeah, it’s all on them. bronco is pure as the driven snow. because…….hopenchange

    • The Klown says:

      The GOP isn’t saying anything because they like their bread buttered on both sides.

      They support the bombings, but want to be free to criticize them.

      I didn’t used to want her in jail but just fined, shunned and humiliated for being such a #%^# but now I think she needs to serve hard time. Her self absorption, complete lack of empathy, and pathological lying must be punished.

      • cynic says:

        I felt that if she used the 5th, that she should just shut up! Now, I hate Politico even more for giving her the chance to speak. I hope she uses all her big time pension money on big time legal fees. I suppose in her little mind, she really does believe that she has done nothing wrong. You know, if the President says it’s ok, then it’s legal.

        • Lulu says:

          She was doing this stuff at the FEC. She is a bad egg and ideologue from way back. People this warped have no business being in government and certainly not making decisions. She was supposed to be neutral. She completely lacks empathy, a conscience, and judgement. She is a twisted sister and needs to be made an example. Being treated badly in the public by other civil servants is appropriate since she makes all of them look bad. She is too warped and stupid to understand this.

    Actually they look pretty tasty, I mean, all that frosting ! “Vagina” cookies for 2nd graders, mom upset teacher said no :facepalm:

    • Lulu says:

      Who has time to do shit like that. I remember getting cheered when I brought in punchbowl of homemade snack mix (Are those real cashews?!!!) for second graders so they could serve themselves as much as they wanted with a ladle. The teachers ate it too. Did this fool think kids give a shit about twat cookies? Making kids eat THOSE cookies is very weird. Maybe she is a child molester or grooming them! LOL.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I thought baked goods were banned in schools now, because nuts’n’allergies ? I guess these very “special” cookies were an exception. (Love your punch bowl idea with the mixed yummy stuff and ladle!)

        • Lulu says:

          That was before nuts were banned. Children like helping themselves. I don’t know how many times I took the old Quaker Oats squares snack mixes to school for elementary school test days over all those years. Teachers would call and ask “Can you bring the big bowl?”

      I guess she doesn’t know much about history. Empty is probably a good twitter name for her.

    • Lulu says:

      What happens when ISIS start shooting the planes down with our own military hardware? Is that when we learn they are US pilots after all? Remember they lie about every damn thing.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I’m still looking for a mission statement that goes beyond “Blow Sh*t Up”. This is a very confusing non-war 😉

        • Somebody says:

          I think it’s our first Xbox war.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Yeah, I imagine this on the big screen in the Situation Room with Obama working the joystick…… 😉

          • Lulu says:

            Basically that is it. Mental tweens (Bronco is picking the targets when he is sentient) in the WH demanding four star generals (after the WH announces where, what, and when) blow shit up until November 5th the day after the election. Then it will stop. It is just a diversion fake-out procrastination pivot! President Zelda.

  18. Kathy says:

    Yes–Obama to speak soon– like the sun rising in the East. A lot of targets missed because Isis moved assets in anticipation of bombing. What a surprise– can never keep his mouth shut.

    • DeniseVB says:

      It’s almost as though he’s doing it on purpose so they get out of the way. Like the time we kept threatening Saddam about his WMD’s and while GWB and Congress were dithering, he moved them. Hmmmm, who got them then? That’s who we’re fighting now.

    it looked like it–the sun was behind him and every time he moved his head, sunlight was filtered through his huge ears. Looked weird

  21. DeniseVB says:

    Stole this from a FB friend:

    So I was listening to Prezidunt Sub-Par’s statement this morning, and an interview with LTC Ralph Peters.
    1. I could actually feel the Prezidunt’s pain when he said “…the finest military the world has ever known…”
    2. Peters was brutal in his assessment of the Syrian Bombings so far:
    “…if we were serious about victory over ISIS, we wouldn’t be bombing their buildings in the middle of the night when they aren’t there…”
    “…victory over ISIS doesn’t look like a bunch of ruined buildings, it looks like acres and acres of dead ISIS fighters…”
    “Let’s assume, for the sake of argument, that George W. Bush crucified Christ, spread the Black Death all over the world, and gave everyone herpes. This is STILL Barack Obama’s war.”

    • Lulu says:

      This is the pivot from immigration and Obamacare fake war. It is the “Can’t wait for October so let’s make it our polls are crashing! September surprise”. You can’t wag the dog any harder. Well a war with Putin would but I hope they aren’t that desperate yet.

      • DeniseVB says:

        A war with Putin would certainly shore up Obama’s third term, because War President. I’ve seen many tinfoily comments alluding to what may be going on in BO’s brain.

  22. DandyTIger says:

    If this is Obama’s idea of a Dem Fall/October surprise, I think the joke’s on the Dems. Surprise.

  23. The Klown says:

    They Said If I Voted For Romney We Would Go to War In Syria:

  24. Kathy says:

    Yeah–personally I wont be happy till they are carpet bombed and had Agent Orange dropped on them. And you can bet the AF would love to do that– but we can’t use our air base in Turkey, our NATO ally.

    • Somebody says:

      Ah yes our NATO ally Turkey. My hubby and I were just talking about that this morning. ISIS has threatened the US, UK and France that I know of and beheaded innocents from two of those countries. I thought NATO was an alliance, an alliance through thick and thin, where the countries have each other’s backs. Turkey seems to only want an alliance of covenience.

      Obama nor the other NATO members have the balls to call Erdogan on it. Supposedly Obama and Erdogan are friends……wow great buddy you have there Barry.

    • DeniseVB says:

      So AP is hiring JournOlisters ? Got it. Though when I first started dipping my toes in conservative blogs, AP was a banned source on most of them. It’s one thing to be biased, but no excuse for stupid.

  26. The Klown says:


    It’s important in times like these to step back and get clarity. The truest thing to say is this: We are living in an amazingly fortunate time. But we also happen to be living during a leadership crisis, and a time when few people have faith in elites to govern from the top. We live in a vibrant society that is not being led.

    We don’t suffer from an abuse of power as much as a nonuse of power. It’s been years since a major piece of legislation was passed, and there’s little prospect that one will get passed in the next two.

    This leadership crisis is eminently solvable. First, we need to get over the childish notion that we don’t need a responsible leadership class, that power can be wielded directly by the people. America was governed best when it was governed by a porous, self-conscious and responsible elite — during the American revolution, for example, or during and after World War II. Karl Marx and Ted Cruz may believe that power can be wielded directly by the masses, but this has almost never happened historically.

    • Lulu says:

      The “elites” and their paid shills always say this. Always. What we need are leaders from the meritocracy not leaders from frigging inherited or rigged elites. No one is saying that any human endeavor doesn’t need leaders including the “childish” common people. But we are sick of ignorant, entitled, assholes who know less than we do claiming to be “elite” leaders and their spokespeople including the asinine ass licking Brooks who judges “leaders” on their pants crease. Elites are freaked out and this drivel proves it.

    • 1539days says:

      David Brooks is pretty unique for being openly pro-fascism.

      Actually, the Founders only wanted landowners to vote because they had some physical stake in this country. Not exactly elite, but it would reduce the number of useless lazy idiots voting.

      • Somebody says:

        We were talking the other day about Obama’s micro-targeting. Apparently they used a database system called Catalist
        One of the things they did was to motivate more far left wing voters AND more welfare recipients to grow their base. It’s a very interesting read, as I said the other day I was already familiar with their mico-targeting which I found quite impressive. The part about the woman not being allowed to be a D precinct worker because she wasn’t pure enough is downright creepy.
        Your comment just reminded me about the above article and people with no skin in the game.

    Filed under YGTBFKM

    Some dingbat volunteered to bake cookies for an entire second grade class. She decided to use the opportunity as a way to empower women.

    And what better way to empower women than by baking cookies that look like vaginas?

    The intention of the baker was to represent all the various types of vaginas that exist including “small, puffy, white, brown, shaved, bald, and even a fire crotch.” We do not know if the pin stripe/landing strip or Hitler mustache configurations were represented.

    Upon delivery, the teacher made the mistake of telling the mom that the cookies were inappropriate for second graders. The mom yelled at her for that, and left the cookies as she stormed out of the school.
    Shockingly, the teacher didn’t want her SECOND GRADE STUDENTS eating vagina cookies. What does this crazy lady do after she is denied the opportunity to share her “empowering message”? She freaks out and sends the teacher this email, of course.
