by Bill Holter, Miles Franklin:
This past week had many events which in days (long) gone by would have been shocking. By today’s standards almost nothing is shocking anymore. It is as if in the words of Pink Floyd, we are now “comfortably numb.”
On the international scene, “we” (the U.S. and several Arab states) finally got their wish and bombed Syria. In fact, the first night of bombings consisted of “tonnage” equal to ALL of the bombings in Iraq for the last 30 days …I guess there was an urge to make up for lost time? The French have been in and out of the coalition and now the British parliament has voted to let bombs fly. The bombing of Syria has been an agenda item since at least last November, we are effectively again at war while Congress does not even want to vote on it for fear of the upcoming elections.
