      Where is the evidence that Assad or Putin were behind the recent chemical or gas attacks in Syria? We should not think about getting involved ntil we have proof that ISIS, the Israelis, or even the CIA were not the guilty ones.

          A few days after we said we would leave Syria this happen, some body would like for us to stay. I do not think it would be Assad or Putin or ISIS it only leaves the Israel and the CIA or who else.

      I don’t want to argue with you at all. I have given you a great forum and because I

      that you are an interesting man who really knows how to use the system, I will not take this forum away from you

        Robert Moriarty says:


        Sometimes you say things that are simply incredible and I’m really tired of ignoring them.

        There are no two sides to rape.

        There are no two sides to aids.

        And there are no two sides to War.

        You cannot as a rational person listen to both sides because there are not two sides. Only one.

        If the 90% of the people who listened yesterday to JM opine on the military and war without ever having spent a day in combat and concluded he had no idea of what he was talking about are dead wrong about the issue, it’s no big deal. They are wrong, it’s ok.

        If however he and Kessler are wrong (and we know they are) then our world is about to turn into ashes.

        If Kessler is a Zionist, he has a dog in the fight and we know they brag about wanting to destroy the US, Why don’t we just take them at their word? They said they wanted to destroy the Middle East in 1982, again in 1996, again 2000 and in 2001 Mossad agents threatened to destroy the US in 20 years.

          John says:

          Yes, Kessler sounds like a Judaic name to me so yes, he’s probably another zionist who wants us to spend our blood treasure fighting yet another unjust war for Israhell.

          Meanwhile Israhell continues to shoot down unarmed Palestinians all the time and nobody seems to give a damn. Why not lob a few of our missiles into Tel Aviv to teach them to respect human rights???? It’s called hypocrisy!!!

            Now why would your comment piss me off? If I were a Jew it probably would.

            Your comment is a perfect example of giving a forum to both sides of a story

            Thanks John.

    Another cheerleader for war in Syria.

    I wonder if Kessler would like to volunteer for the fight?

    If not, how about volunteer to tend to the wounded and dying?

    If not, how about write send in an extra check with his tax return to the US feral gooberment to pay for it all.

    I bet you he does none of these things.

      I don’t know if you caught your question in yesterday’s editorial. McKinney did say that we do not know that.

      Thanks for hanging in and contributing thought provoking comments.

        I need to clarify. “We do not know that” refers to the perpetrator of the action.

        Jim own words made that very clear.

      You will notice Eddy, that I simply gave a man whose opinion is considered important by a lot of people a forum to express his thoughts.

      Did I ever say that I disagree with you? What about “free speech” Eddy?

      By the way your comments are certainly valuable to all of us.

    The more I watch what Trump’s actual actions are, the less I believe he acts irresponsibly.
    Sure, he may open his mouth and say things that appear to be lacking in thought, but when it comes to actions, he is different in behavior.
    For example. among the Russian oligarchs that he sanctioned on April 6th, is Oleg Deripaska. Deripaska has links to HRC and McCain, and Christopher Steele. (i.e. not just a random Russian oligarch)

    • On April 11, 2018 at 11:09 am,
      Big Al says:

      I kind of agree with you, CFS.

  5. On April 11, 2018 at 10:32 am,
    Robert Moriarty says:

    How wonderful! a guest who is going to tell us how cautious Trump is and how he carefully thinks about military action before taking it. Even more cautious than the generals. Trump is his own person. (and certainly not owned by Sheldon Adelson)

    We have to take action when we have a dictator using chemical weapons.

    That is the worst interview you have ever posted.

    Trump has invaded a sovereign nation, he is threatening military action after refusing to allow even a cursory investigation into what is so obviously a false flap operation that the Russians have been warning us for three weeks was coming.

    Of course he never answered your question about the legal basis for the US invasion of Syria because he can’t. This isn’t my opinion, it is a fact. If Trump is acting legally, how is he doing it? Congress didn’t authorize it. The UN didn’t authorize it, it’s illegal in every possible way. The “dictator” of Syria was elected in a fair and free election that even the US admitted.

    By the way, if you can present both sides of a nuclear war, you are far smarter than I am.

      JohnM says:

      It must be a spring thing. Last year at this time Al tied himself in knots trying to defend Trump’s missile attack.

      There are the “I want to believe” crowd that won’t face facts even after their champion is “discredited” (understatement). This also applied to Obama in spades. “Say it ain’t so, Joe” springs to mind.

      As Mark Twain said, “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled”.

      I’m just growly about the whole mess.

      • On April 11, 2018 at 11:14 am,
        Big Al says:

        I cannot disagree with you at all JohnM.

        Look for longer explanations from me in the future probably in the form of audio.

      CFS says:

      I will judge Trump by his actions, Mr. Moriarty.

      I understand, to some extent, his concerns and problems.
      I condemned JFK at the time of the Cuban missile crisis, even though this forum was not, alas, available at that time. I thought then there was a finite possibility of nuclear war, which I did not want (like most of mankind, OF COURSE) I was grateful when Khrushchev had the sense to back down. (None of us knew, at that time, that Russia had already placed missiles in Cuba and the risk was much greater than anyone of us knew.)
      Trump has to walk a fine line. He is under the cloud of charges of collusion with Russia to win an election. I believe those charges totally unfounded; made by corrupt scum in the Democratic party and by an insanely biased media. I wonder if Trump has made his bellicose tweets simply because he does not wish to hear the media say: “see, we knew he was colluding with the Russians, because he has now let the Russians get away with letting Assad gas innocent civilians.”
      Before he was elected. President Trump stated he wished to talk with Putin and improve US-Russian relations. It was those inane, unfounded collusion charges that took away from Trump that option. I hope, in this quiet-before-the-storm period Trump will reflect on the lack of proof that it was not the white helmets (Hezbollah) that caused the chlorine gassing, and not Assad. I hope Presidents Trump and Putin will talk and that cooler heads will prevail. In the interim I will pray that commonsense will aid all the powers in their future actions and that this will not escalate into nuclear war.

    JohnM says:

    This guy Kessler is on the inside????????????? He’s so far on the inside that his favorite jacket should be a straitjacket.

    There seems to be a preponderance of people in the American regime that believe that international law is for somebody else (because they are so pure and exceptional ). These idiots (I’ll refrain from profanity here) think that what we need is a “short victorious war” where they bloody somebody’s nose. Well some news for them, after they do the bloody nose the other side is going to drop kick them in the balls and then rip those balls off.

    I’m tired of this BS. Trump is nowhere as smart as he thinks. Putin is not going to be bluffed. Either Trump is being led around by his nose or he’s “mentally challenged” or delusional or some combination thereof.

    And after this all goes to Hell, we’ll have a whole bunch of the survivors lamenting that “We didn’t mean for this to happen” or some such drivel.

    I’d refer him to Antiwar Raimondo’s article. It said it all.

    • On April 11, 2018 at 11:20 am,
      Big Al says:

      Don’t you want to know what a large number of people think? I personally do. Mr. Kessler’s books are huge bestsellers and being someone who insists on be as informed as possible I want to know what he and his readers think.

      By the way, I did enjoy talking with him. I am perhaps a bit less critical because I enjoy all conversation as I find them to be educational for me.

      • On April 11, 2018 at 11:49 am,
        JohnM says:

        I’ve heard Hillary’s book is a best seller and she thinks she very well informed as well. So that type of argument doesn’t cut much ice with me.

        I enjoy talking to a wide range of people (preferably over a glass of single malt) as well. However, challenging their positions in conversation helps in my education too.

        • On April 11, 2018 at 1:02 pm,
          Big Al says:

          Of course JohnM, as it does mine.

          I love single malt, but because of my wife’s health condition, she can’t drink alcohol and to support her ia also don’t drink alcohol.

      • On April 11, 2018 at 12:49 pm,
        Virginnprincr says:

        Yes. To become a best sell you must read B.S. Otherwise you will not get published. The information is power. The truth never gets published. THE COMMUNIST N ZIONIST control the narrative

    Mr Kessler. Perhaps Obama did not act against Assad, because there was no proof he used gas against his own people. As there is no absulate proof that Putin or Assad were responsable for the last attact.
    If somebody was to present me with concrete proof that Assad used this evil weapon against his own people, then i would be the first to say, action MUST be taking against this man.
    IMO..they are just looking for any excuse to invade Syria, as their proxy ISIS, failed to topple Assad.

      Big Al says:

      Good Morning Mr. Irish,

      Have I or Jim endorsed “going into Syria” because we have proof (which, of course, we do not) that Russia or Assad committed the poison gas action?

      I believe that we have not.

        That may be true but it’s just as true that you have not endorsed avoiding a war based on little more than speculation and a probable false flag operation.

            The BBC reports both US and British submarines are moving within firing range of Syria.
            The BBC also reports large build up of bombers and re-fuelling takers in the ready. Turkey, Jordan and Syria have not been asked for fly-over permission, of course, so it would appear only access via the Mediterranean is possible. France has not spoken on the situation yet.
            That leaves UK, Germany and Cyprus as possible locations for air support, I believe.

    I think Trump and Putin are making everyone sit-up in their chair and pay attention. They both don’t want a war.
    I think they are about to reveal the false flag, and the people who create these false flags. When that happens, all will change.
    All of you that think Trump is controlled by the deep state, and he doesn’t know what he’s doing, are completely ..lost….

      John says:

      I’m not sure that Trump doesn’t want war as, like a playground bully, he tweets out all kinds of juvenile stupid unjustified warmongering threats against Syria and Russia. I just hope that if we do start a war with Syria and Russia, that Russia doesn’t do what they said they’d do in response to our attack and sink all of our ships in the Mediterranean. That would virtually put an end to the American empire, and where would that leave Israhell without us to do their fighting for them???? Oh yeah, they’d still have the French and British to die for them.

    I believe that the Russian spy and his daughter that were recently poisoned in Britain could have been a Mossad operation to make The Russians look bad. That would play into The Deep States hands in The US and Europe and isolate Assad in The Middle East. Then the chemical attack made it easy to point the finger at Assad and his bogeyman Putin. DT
