Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The decepticon desperation here to reinvigorate the Cold War is just reprehensible. The Russkies do have a naval base in Syria. There is basically a Russian outpost in Syria. The Russians are allies with the Syrians. Let’s just say you plan all this out, all you Syria bombers out there. One of your precious little Tomahawk cruise missiles, your implements of death, just happens to land on something that belongs to the Russians. What do you propose to do about that? Has anyone even though about that? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Ron Paul: Plans, rumors and war propaganda for attacking Syria and disposing Assad has been around for many months.
This past week, however, it was reported that the Pentagon indeed was finalizing plans to do just that. In my opinion, all the evidence to justify this attack is bogus. It is no more credible than the pretext given for the 2003 invasion of Iraq or for the 2011 attack on Libya.
The total waste of those wars should cause us to pause before this all-out effort at occupation and regime change is initiated against Syria.
Mike Church Show Transcript – Syria’s Assad Denies Use Of Chemical Weapons, Urges The West To Stay Out Of His Sovereign Country’s Affairs
There are no national security concerns that require such a foolish escalation of violence in the Middle East. There should be no doubt that our security interests are best served by completely staying out of the internal strife now raging in Syria.
We are already too much involved in supporting the forces within Syria, anxious to overthrow their current government. Without outside interference, the strife – now characterized as a civil war – would likely be nonexistent.
Whether or not we attack yet another country occupying it and setting up a new regime that we hope we can control poses a serious constitutional question: Where does a president get such authority?
Since World War II, the proper authority to go to war has been ignored. It has been replaced by international entities like the United Nations and NATO or the president himself while ignoring the Congress. Sadly, the people don’t object.
Our recent presidents explicitly maintain that the authority to go to war is not the U.S. Congress. This has been the case since the 1950s when we were first taken into war in Korea under a UN resolution and without congressional approval.
Once again, we are about to engage in military action against Syria, and at the same time irresponsibly reactivating the Cold War with Russia.
