    Dick Tracy says:

    The US needs to stop telling other countries how to live, bring their troops home and end this endless situation where they continually bully other countries to try and force there viewpoint through military action. You refuse to understand that Al even though you pride yourself on being a good Christian. Trying to force your beliefs on another whether it is a country or an individual is a huge hypocrisy that has no place in Christianity.

      Big Al says:

      I am not sure just how you can say that I am trying to force my beliefs on anyone else.
      Are you just angry at me for some reason. Do you understand that I personally did not send the troops anywhere. Do you understand that I agree completely with Ron Paul? Why are you blaming me personally for this.

        I didn’t say you sent the troops, you can’t get things accurate once and for all if you don’t confront the real truth.

        Al:

        You keep stepping on your own tongue. Did you say the US has not attacked Assad? How about the missile strike a year ago based on a false flag? How about the constant financial and military supplies going to the terrorists? How about training the terrorists in Jordan by the SF? (where my nephew was murdered by a member of the tribe that the King of Jordan heads. While waiting for court-martial for the murder of 3 SF troops the guy was promoted) How about the recent drone attack on a Russian airfield.

        To suggest the US is not in conflict with Assad is absurd. We invaded the country with 2000 troops and none of your guests even want to suggest a legal basis for that action because there is none. The US has pretended for years to be Anti-Isis but in fact we created Isis to overthrow Assad. The US attacks on Assad go all the way back to when HC was SOS.

        You have life totally reversed when you say that if Russia or Syria hits the US troops, we will strike back. Do you not have any concept of any international law? We are not there legally. Syria is a sovereign nation, we have been told we are not welcome. The UN has not approved an attack by the US on Syria or invasion. Congress has not approved an attack by the US on Syria or an invasion. If JM wants to wrap himself in the Constitution, why doesn’t he address the question about how the Constitution supports what Trump is doing.

        There are two different groups in the service. Those who do the combat and those who are in support. In Vietnam 90% of people never saw combat. That’s true in every war. When you asked JM if he had been in combat, he hesitated. That means he was trying to figure out a way to answer the question without a direct lie.

        Being in the Middle East is not being in combat. Being in the infantry does not mean being in combat. Being in the Balkins doe not mean being in combat. Being in Africa is not being in combat. Combat is when people shoot at you, not being in a combat zone. He knows that and evaded the question which means I am right. He has never been shot at. I don’t give a hoot if he was near a war, he wasn’t in combat and won’t admit it.

        JM, if you ever got shot at personally, where was it and how did it happen? Alternatively, tell us a single medal you were awarded such as the CIB that would verify your claim to having been in combat. I don’t believe you. You act like a staff officer, you talk like a staff officer and you think like a staff officer and take my word, that is not a compliment.

        The non-thinking robots of O-4 and above who have spent the last 40 years sucking up to their reporting officers to gain promotion have destroyed our military. US forces are the weakest and poorest led in history. In WW II and Korea, field grade officers often had combat experience. I flew with a lot of people in Vietnam, who had experience going back to Midway and Guadalcanal and Okinawa. Combat experience was common. Now, not so much and it’s very rare for field grade and above to have ever actually been in combat. The snuffies know what it means to get shot at but when you get to O-5 and above, few know anything more than theories.

        And if JM thinks Putin can’t kick the US butt in a day, he knows not of what he speaks. We build crap pieces of Shiit such as the F-35 which is the biggest fiasco the CMIC ever came up with, the Brits build ships that can’t fight in the Middle East because they weren’t designed to sail in warm water. It will be a short, violent war and we will lose.

          Bob Moriarty, Vietnam and WWII were different wars and different times than the last 17 years. You certainly don’t know me, what I have done, or where I served. FYI, and to help you keep from embarrassing yourself further: I started as a private, not as a Field Grade officer – It took a lot of years and experiences to get there. Ft Knox for basic/armor school, Chinook crew chief, Russian linguist as enlisted – as a junior officer, 502nd Infantry, Commander Berlin Intelligence Det., 1-160th SOAR, Special programs and special missions in Counter Terror, Hostage Rescue, Counter WMD. As a field grade, Russian Foreign Area Officer, Security Assistance Officer in Georgia and Albania, Deputy Chief of Combating Terror for US PACOM JIOC, The J-2 for a combat Special Operations Task Force, Senior Defense Official/Defense Attaché, and the International Military Affairs chief in Army Central – and many other assignments, schools and training. 5 combat tours on my ORB, about 3.5 years on the ground in hostile fire zones. Long list of medals and awards, from the US and other countries, over 32 years. Al has seen my official file, doing due diligence for his broadcast.

          How long did you serve? How many missions and total hours of flight time? What platform? I respect just one, and anyone willing to take the risk, thank you for what you did back then, but you don’t have the right or knowledge to degrade me or anyone else who fought this war.

          I don’t know you other than this forum. Out of respect, and common sense, I would not make a judgment about your service. But I have had bad guys hold weapons on me that bruised my rib cage – pretty up close and personal, eh? I have lost buddies who’s bodies lay feet from me, bleeding, bloating, burned and disfigured. How many feet ASL were you when shot at as a pilot? I don’t think the fear is a lot different, but the smell is, and maybe the personal pain that doesn’t go away, ass hole (character judgment, not service judgment.) IF you had real experience with death that close, not from an oxygen mask, you would have a little more respect. But my guess is you wouldn’t have to guts to fight on the ground for anything but your wallet now. Tell me I am wrong, I’ll accept that.

          I respect your experience regardless of how far or near the threat – as I respect the truck drivers, cooks and many, many “support people” you degrade who lost their lives by IEDs or insider attacks serving in Iraq and Afghanistan – the highest casualties in this war. We fight differently now, much more professionally, efficiently and more effectively than in your age, regardless if our political masters let us win or not. The low causality numbers prove it.

          The battlefield does not exist as it did in your time, and foolish for you (or me) to compare unless you have experiences in both. But make no mistake, we can win a fight when allowed, asked the Obama “generational fight” ISIS leadership. Do you really know anything about the latest capabilities, weapons or technology?

          By the grace of God, and good buddies, I am still with my family, and am thankful to have served a Nation I love, a Constitution I revere, and the good people who make this Nation great. I am proud my son is a 2-12 infantry soldier fighting in Afghanistan right now for those same reasons, defending me and you from extremism that would destroy western society if allowed to flourish. I am proud that I kept my integrity and honor.

          But I am not proud of taking the lives I am responsible for – are you? The only people I know who brag of killing are either emotionally unstable, liars or pilots who killed from a distance. False flags, and false service – lots of it out there. Maybe you need some help? The pain lingers, and you may not even realize it. OR are you just a pilot?

          I am sorry America let you down – that is apparent in your writing – but from what I understand from Al you have made the best of a free market and free world. Isn’t that worth protecting? Who will protect it, the Bohemian government? Maybe the EU, or China? Good luck with that.

          I hate the deep state inside the beltway and global urban elite that have lost touch with America. I hate the politics that crush independence and free thought, but I cannot and will not quit fighting for a better day and for our Constitution – it has made the world a better place.

          Maybe you have given up, I get it, there is lots to be angry at – seems like many have given up on America. I have not. Al’s program is one way to keep a dialogue and exchange of free thought – and for me to keep fighting out of uniform. Demeaning each other with negative opinion or unsupported accusations is destructive to those concepts, and petty. I would hope a gentleman of your experience and stature would be above this.

            Robert Moriarty says:

            JM:

            I’m not going to agree that there is some giant difference between wars. Some things you say are absurd such as “we can win a fight when allowed.” but what about if it isn’t our war? What about the US having no possible interest? What about a war the Constitution of the US does not provide for? All of which we have not seen in 60 years.

            It is not up to the Constitution to make the world a better place, that is fake thinking. The US is not policeman to the world. The Treaty of Westphalia signed in 1648 not only provided for the end of the 30 year war but more importantly provided for the concept of Nation States having borders and certain interests within that state. And if you didn’t like the religious laws, say, in England, you could move to Scotland or to America. It was the basis for 300 years of more or less peace in the world with occasional flareups.

            After WW II the CIA and Israel began this concept that certain nation states could do anything they wanted. And while we tend to think of Israel as a nation, a country, it is not. Countries have borders. Countries have laws. Citizens have some rights. Israel doesn’t have borders. They change daily. You couldn’t put an accurate map of Israel into a book because it would change by the time the ink was dry.

            Instead the CIA has dragged the US into one stupid war after another. I met some of those bastards after my nephew was murdered. All they care about is their paychecks. They will start a war with Canada if they knew they would lose their benefits by not doing so. They owe no allegiance to anyone.

            But Israel has captured the CIA and Congress, Congress by way of recycling the incredible sums of money the US pours into the country. And Congress gives the CIA and the rest of the CMIC everything they want. They are out of control.

            All empires fail when they get involved in needless wars of military adventurism. We have gained nothing out of your 32 years of service that you claim. You never defended the US, it was never threatened. The new standard of control since the end of WW II is lies, fraud and false flag operations. I can’t say for certain who was behind 911, I have my own opinion. But I do know that Bush and Cheney didn’t want it investigated.

            All debts get paid. Iraq and Afghanistan have bankrupted the US. You can believe that America is somehow going to survive the financial fiasco in progress but every guy I respect who understand economics know that the US is finished. Thanks to the CMIC, Israel and especially the CIA, the US committed suicide all in the name of “freedom.”

            You ain’t Superman and no one elected you to protect the world. I’ve spent time in Commie China and Commie Vietnam that 58,000 American kids died to prevent, and I live in the EU. I see a cop every six months. The food is real and cheap. A year ago I drove from Phoenix to Tucson. I think it’s about 120 miles. I saw 15 cop cars who had stopped drivers. You live in a police state as bad as any in the world with 25% of the world’s prisoners on 5% of the world’s population.

            The US I fought for died. The US you fought for is run by corrupt and lying mad men who theaten nuclear war over an obvious false flag operation.

            As an F-4 pilot in Vietnam, I think I never got closer than maybe 50 clicks of a Sam radar. But my war is close enough to what war is like to know that the S-400 and S-500 can probably swat aircraft from the sky to the border of Egypt. Anyone who believes that we can walk over Russia and China also believes we really would have won Vietnam if they had just let us. Hogwash. We keep losing every war because we underestimate our “enemies.” We aren’t fighting units bigger than a good size girl scout troop in Afghanistan yet we still lost in spite of spending $1 million a year per soldier equipped with the latest and greatest toys. They have everything they need except for leaders who give a damn about them.

            Any war worth fighting is worth winning. Any war not worth fighting is not worth fighting. You didn’t spend a day in uniform fighting a war worth as much as a quart of lukewarm elephant snot.

            Mr McKinney:
            Speaking as an honorably discharged Veteran myself,coming from a family who served in WW1, WW11, The Korean War, The Viet Nam War and Peace time as well, I feel the urge to respond to your post even though it was not directed at me.

            Your response sounds wonderful if I was a 18 year old contemplating service in the Military talking to a recruiter.
            The fact of the matter is I’m a grown man with Children and Grandchildren.I did my time,I saw first hand what the Military is about.

            Your line,”Defending me and you from extremism that would destroy Western Society if allowed to flourish.Along with “ I am proud of my son fighting in Afghanistan for the same reasons defending me and you from foreign extremism.

            America has been in Afghanistan for over 15 years,and for 15 years the production of Heroin has increased every year. Last year alone,Heroin production increased 30% in Afghanistan.
            Every twenty three minutes someone dies in the U.S from a Heroin overdose. Need I enlighten you to the fact that the U.S doesn’t produce any Heroin?

            The original narrative for going into Afghanistan was to get Osama Bin Ladden.Remember?
            Where are the arrests for those aiding and abetting the Hijackers while in the U.S?
            What next? Are you going to tell me that 9/11 was done without any help?

            You are starting to infringe on my intelligence as a human and I’m not having any of it.
            I may not be the smartest person,and for sure I know I’m not the dumbest.
            I do know that peace doesn’t come loaded into the belly of a B-52. The sooner people like yourself figure out that killing more people isn’t the answer,the better off we will all be.
            By The Grace of God.

            Bob, The US thinks they won The Second World War, that is dangerous thinking because since then they have the belief that their thinking is right, they are wrong on both counts. That sort of elitism can only destroy a nation which was founded on much different principles. When a country is trapped by that logic they can never prepare for the next conflict, because they believe they have already won.

    I wish to express my sincere gratitude, Big Al, for you providing this forum.
    I appreciate the fact that you listen to both sides.
    I am amazed at the extreme bias of many posters on your site, that they are not prepared to listen, but are blinded by prejudice and pre-determined bias.
    I believe and hope that the U.S. has assets which can give a true and complete picture of what actually is happening in Syria.

      You using the terms “extreme bias” and “prejudice” is nothing short of remarkable. Isn’t that what you show on a constant basis?

      The last thing the US wants is a true and complete picture of what is actually happening in Syria.

      Trump is Sheldon Adelson’s sock puppet and wants the US to fight Israel’s wars for them to the last American dollar and drop of blood. Israel has been calling for destruction of their Middle East neighbors for 36 years. But you knew that.

    I was thinking about what Krishnamurti once said and I am paraphrasing, “Violence just creates more violence, only when there is there no violence in your own heart will there be peace”. I kind of think a lot of religious leaders including JC had the same view.

    CFS says:

    I judge the behavior of my Presifent by his actions and also, importantly, by his results.
    So far,I believe his results, with regard to PRK and Iran have been excellent; with respect to China, good. His results with respect to Syria are as yet indeterminate.
    My single complaint, so far, is only his signing of a budget bill that was ludicrously excessive in spending, but that was possibly a fight he could not win. (Certainly the scum, self-serving politicians of both parties in Congress were of little help.)
    I trust that wisdom will prevail in Trump’s handling of Syria.
    It is a pity that the Democrat attack dogs are so aggressive, with searching Cohen’s homes, that they require much of the President’s attention at a time when he deserves not to be distracted from world affairs.

    For the record Mr Moriarty was telling us here at the KE Report that Israel had Nuclear Bombs long before Collin Powell got caught admitting this fact.
    Anybody with half a brain can figure out where they came from.
    The question was posed why would people accuse us of this? I’ll tell you why. Last year you did a commentary with Mr Temple when Rocket Man Kim was acting up.
    At that time both you and Mr Temple both said that you thought a pre-emptive strike was
    was a good idea.
    At that time I posed the question as to what would be acceptable casualty numbers.
    Of course there were no replies.
    At that time I said it was one thing to say we should kill more people and it was another to have one of your loved ones come home in a casket or die a slow prolonged death in a V.A Hospital.

      JohnK, It was hardly a secret that Israel had nuclear bombs.
      Heck, it was well known by anyone paying attention that they had create and tested Nuclear bombs in South Africa (which is where the uranium was obtained).
      Indeed Israel had aided S. Africa in getting bombs as part of the deal. If I remember correctly, S. Africa itself had about half a dozen Israeli constructed Nukes, before agreeing to dismantle the bombs in about 1990. It was hardly a secret.
      The only thing which is not completely known, is exactly how many nukes, of what size, Israel currently has.

          I believe it was in a comment from Mr. Moriarty questioning about Israeli nukes that the topic first arose in this forum. (Actually with regard to Iran being peaceful and not developing nuclear technology.
          In my opinion, Iran is dangerous because if it had nuclear technology, it takes little to eradicate Israel from the Middle east. Mr. Moriarty totally disagrees with me about Iran, and he is entitled to his opinion. However, Israel has never, so far ever used a nuclear device in offense, despite having had nukes for about 50 years. (Thus I feel less concerned about Israel, even though I am pretty sure they would use them in final revenge if their country was in death throws.)

            I don’t believe Israel has used any nuclear devices in offense, with about the same level of confidence that the U.S. has not post-1960.

            Since all 17 US intelligence agencies all agree that Iran has not only no nuclear weapons capability, they have no nuclear weapons program, why is it that the US and Israel want to attack them? Is it to prevent a program that we know doesn’t exist or simply an extension of the Yinon Plan and “Clean Break from the Peace Process?”

            Israel remains the greatest threat to peace in the Middle East as it has for 70 years.

            By the way, you never commented on Israel shooting 1100 protesters in eight days. Would that be because you view them as subhumans? Is it too few, do you subscribe to the theory of the Defense Minister of Israel that all 30,000 should be legal targets? Would you think that it would make a lot more sense just to line up machine guns and mow down the entire group?

            How are you doing searching for your lost moral compass?

            You continue to come up with true but really stupid comments. When you say, “Iran is dangerous because if it had nuclear technology, it takes little to eradicate Israel from the Middle East” is similar to saying that if Hell was full of ice water, it wouldn’t be so uncomfortable.

            It’s Israel threatening the world and behind the attacks on all of their neighbors. If you would use your head for even a moment you would realize Iraq was no threat and didn’t attack the US, we have no interests there. Libya was no threat and didn’t attack the US, we have no interests there. Iran was no threat and didn’t attack the US but we have attacked all of them and with even a cursory glance at the web using Google you will realize Israel has planned attack on Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya for over 30 years. This idiot corrupt mob boss running Israel was saying in 1992 that Iran was five years from a bomb.

            They made it all up and either you are dumber than a brick or you simply follow the Mossad party line, take your pick.

            Iran didn’t attack anyone Israel attacks everyone. There is a difference.

    I also might add for the record, as I let it slide earlier, some person in this forum implied that Israel had been given its nuclear capability from the U.S., because the U.S. is its lapdog. While that is debatable, It is also true that its nuclear technology was stolen from the U.S.

    People in this forum reported that the Syrian gas attack ONE YEAR AGO was probably a false flag attack. I, myself have commented on the possibility of bombs inadvertently hitting a chemical weapons storage or similar.
    I thought it worthwhile to investigate further the attack last year.

    The Organisation for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons said on 19 April, 2017 that bio-medical samples collected from three victims during their post-mortems had been analysed by two OPCW-designated laboratories.

    The results of the analysis indicated that the victims were exposed to Sarin or a Sarin-like substance. Samples taken from seven survivors showed similar results.

    “The analytical results obtained are incontrovertible,” said OPCW head Ahmet Uzumcu.

    It, therefore, appears last year”s attack was real, a nerve agent, and not chlorine.

    I stand by my (CFS) observation, this time, that it appears chlorine and not a nerve agent.
    This also seems supported by the lack of effects on medical personnel who treated victims.
    Thus this year’s attack seems to be different from last year’s.
    I am not making any statement as to which faction inflicted the damage; I don’t know.
    I hope Trump has intel, which is not in the public domain; it would surprise me if he does not.

    CFS:

    There were impressions on the ground of gas containers that had been hit by bombs. In short, the sarin or chlorine was on the ground, not dropped from the air. Doesn’t matter who did it, it was not an aerial bomb.

    And just as a matter of interesting fact that has escaped Al, JM and the CIA whiz, the Russians have been warning of a false flag chemical attack for over three weeks. They knew it was coming and it remains totally irrational to believe it was in the interests of the legal government of Syria to attack their own people when they were on the verge of total success. A false flag only makes sense if Israel, the US, the UK and or Turkey were behind it.

    I continue to hear the banter of the demise of the crypto currencies by several posters, whom were also the ones that missed the “GOLDEN” trading opportunity presented with Bitcoin.
    There seems to be some agreement that the Crypto’s are much like the Dot Com bubble of the past.
    There also seems to be some agreement that there are going to be Crypto’s that will emerge as lifetime investments such as Amazon.
    With that being said I always try share what I observe and share it with the posters.
    As with investing in Jr Miners, management is always a key componet.This is the same with the Crypto’s.
    The reason I am posting is because of the Crypto EOS.
    EOS is being developed by Dan Larimer. Dan started Bit Shares which was the 1st DAP (Decentralized Application) and the most successful DAP, Steemit.Dan also created Graphene.
    Generation #3 of Dan’s work is a new platform called EOS.
    Generation 3 blockchain will be machines and the removal of friction between blockchains.
    Dan is one of the people I would keep an eye on.
    April 6thEOS was priced at $5.89, today EOS is $9.02.
    Anyway you spin it, this is a nice gain.
    Full disclosure. I don’t own any EOS. Once I figure out how to send a QR code on my phone I will be a buyer on the next pullback.

    Speaking with EuroNews, Russia’s ambassador to the EU, Vladimir Chizov, said “Russian military specialists have visited this region, walked on those streets, entered those houses, talked to local doctors and visited the only functioning hospital in Douma, including its basement where reportedly the mountains of corpses pile up. There was not a single corpse and even not a single person who came in for treatment after the attack.”

    “But we’ve seen them on the video!” responds EuroNews correspondent Andrei Beketov.

    “There was no chemical attack in Douma, pure and simple,” responds Chizov. “We’ve seen another staged event. There are personnel, specifically trained – and you can guess by whom – amongst the so-called White Helmets, who were already caught in the act with staged videos.”

    -Referring to the Skripal incident as if it were credible

    -Expressing bewilderment at the notion that Israel could be behind the event in Syria, when the record of false flag attacks is abundant.
