It Does Not Add Up

(1) George Bush's Iraq war planning and mongering drew large opposition voices;
(2) The USA political left has been absolutely silent on the Nobel Peace Prize winning occupant in the White House and his drone campaign, and now effort to cause more death and destruction in yet another middle-eastern country;
(3) The USA political right, from the perspective of their talking heads on mainstream media, is fractured in their approach to the Syrian developments;
(4) Rush Limbaugh agrees with Dennis Kucinich, seriously, WTF?!;
(5) Crude is up, but gold and silver have not exploded upwards;
(6) The USA is about to have a three day weekend.
What is readily apparent from these data points is DISARRAY, chaos, uncertainty and the like. Traditional alliances are shattering, friends may be foes, foes may be allies, nothing is what it seems.
IF the USA harbored a true military objective to the Syrian conflict, would it not be universally known by now? So, since there is not a true military objective, then does this not explain the confusion? It does to me.
But with that said, since it does not add up, then what is the reason for the almost certain to happen, overt USA entry into the Syrian conflict?
I have said it before, and I will say it again. War is good for the elite for many reasons. I predicted war would break out in 2013, because that is the last possible solution that the current western bankster elite have at their disposal.
Obummer is befuddled. He is taking orders and doing as he is told. The left and right do not agree, yet the do agree, as parts of this Syrian mess are subject to overlapping, like a Venn diagram. Because it is so messy, there is ample opportunity to spin the necessary facts to support any position one would like to take.
Some commentators have correctly, in my humble opinion, suggested that this Syrian conflict is about resources, about redrawing sovereign boundaries, about surrounding Iran, and ushering in a new era in the middle east, one that concerns resources. The USA's role–and goal--is to grab a seat at the table, by using their last tool, the world's best fighting forces. From there, look for a new hegemon, and new international trade rules and exchange parameters.
This is playing out just like expected, if one has read Orlov's book, Five Stages of Collapse.
The subject of my next post, next week, will be his book.
For now, ponder the Syrian situation and prognosticate.
