THE ABSURD TIMES — STILL

The Absurd Times Syria — As it Happens, Before it Happens

Posted in Uncategorized by @honestcharlie on August 28, 2013

​There will be no bombing until Obama and others have finished basking in the glow of MLK and his legend (carefully omitting the J. Edgar Hoover vendetta). He needs time to sound good, then it will come. Russia and China have walked out on closed door meetings at the UN, obviously because there will be no voting this time. Iran has talked about retaliating against Israel. Oil prices rise steeply and the oil companies make out like bandits.​

Yes, we are at the mercy of idiots. Here are some details you should know. I wanted to get this to you ASAP:
