Wow! Does the Province of Quebec have more sense than the rest of Canada?

I am in awe of how clear-headed the Quebec govt. is getting to be.  Will the rest of Canada follow the good example being set by Quebec?

....A Muslim youth conference in Montreal,   which had drawn criticism from the Parti Quebecois government, has been cancelled by the convention centre where it was supposed to be held.
The Palais des congres, the city's largest convention centre, announced Saturday it won't hold next weekend's event for security reasons.  The decision was made after a "security review," the Palais des congres said in a brief statement. No specifics were offered about the finding of the review.
A spokesman for the convention centre said in an email that no one would be available for comment until Tuesday........

.......Maltais said the PQ government is against the sexism of speakers, one of which reportedly said that a woman not wearing the veil is worse than cancer......

.......This year's edition has four speakers, including Nader Abou Anas, the head of a Muslim youth association in France.
In online videos, Anas preaches the segregation of genders, warns women against wearing revealing clothing, and tells them to wear the hijab....

The Deal

2005 movie starring  Christian Slater

The Obama hypocrisy.... if you are his fan, you don't want to know how many kids his drones have killed

The speech Obama gave today, almost crying over the kids murdered in Ghouta by CWs ... what an Oscar winning performance that was, eh?

Obama's drones in Yemen, Pakistan and Afghanistan and God alone know where else,  have killed more kids and innocent civilians than the kids murdered in Ghouta he is pretending to cry over.  Although the drones supposedly "target with precision" only terrorists...  like as if we are gonna believe that  terrorists are lonesome fellows and never walk, eat, sleep, talk or stand near any other human being.... they almost every time, also  kill innocents who happen to be near the terrorist targeted.  

Over and above, we still  don't know for sure whether it was really the Assad regime who should be blamed for the CW attacks in Ghouta or the dumb allahu akbars who make up the jihadist army of the "opposition" we are supporting, or if a rogue soldier in Assad's army decided to turn against him and what better way than to do what happened.  Are we supposed to let loose WW3 on the world because of this? 

What a crazy world! 

Look at  links below to see how many kids have been killed by Obama's drone strikes which strikes were supposed to take out only "terrorists".

Analysis on Syria

Massive damage suffered by Canadian warships on routine exercise

We need to spend our money on the betterment of our own stuff here in Canada and not send taxpayers' money to hellholes.  The repairs to these two warships will run into several millions of dollars. 
Towing exercises is what caused the collision.  If  WW3 intensifies in the next few weeks or months and we have to join in with the merry band, whether we like it or not,  we will have to do so  minus 2 warships.  

From CTVNews:
....Two Canadian warships are returning   to port in Esquimalt, B.C. after colliding during an exercise while en route to Hawaii.
The Canadian Navy said an investigation into the collision between HMCS Algonquin and HMCS Protecteur will be launched, and a Board of Inquiry will make recommendations on how to prevent similar accidents in the future.
"The Royal Canadian Navy will be conducting an investigation into this unfortunate incident in order to determine exactly what happened," Commodore Bob Auchterlonie, Commander of Canadian Fleet Pacific, said in a statement released by the Department of National Defence on Saturday.
The accident occured Friday morning while the warships were conducting towing exercises, which require close-quarters manoeuvring.............

Guess where the headchoppers,cannibals and rapists rampaging in Syria get the money to make videos of those acts

$5.3 Million of our Canadian taxpayers'  money went  to the "opposition" to counter "propaganda by Assad." 
What a novel way for our esteemed Canadian government  to get us, as well as the world at large, watch with horror and revulsion some of the following, which were a direct result of Canadian benevolence ... wouldn't you say:


bodies torn up in tiny bits;

our allies eating human hearts and livers; 

dogs, cats, goats, rats, birds in the throes of death from poison gas testing;

lots of blood flowing in streets with a "naan" (bread)  in the blood to show that Assad killed people waiting in queues for bread,;

Christian girl tortured, raped, killed ... and for good measure a crucifix jammed down her throat;

hundreds of churches destroyed;

little Alawite children killed and hung up on hooks;

Alawite or Christian little boy hanged;  (remember. we saw the pic ...but never got the full horror story);

women and children held hostage until "Assad's regime" released prisoners;

Christian priests murdered in cold blood;

videos of jihadists telling us we are all gonna be next as they are coming to get us too; 

Armenians found wearing crucifix brutally murdered;

jihadists telling everybody all around how shariah will be introduced to all;

pics of Christian and Alawite women in rebel controlled areas made to wear burkhas  in accordance with fatwas issued;

etc. etc, etc, etc. etc, etc, etc. etc, etc, 

I wonder how much the airhead leader of the Liberals would have given if Libs were in power.  Probably 10 times that amount and might have also committed us to bombarding Syria alongside the other airhead down south. Although, Canada should not have contributed to this madness in any way at all,  I still think we should look at it as "Thank God for small mercies"  because if the Libs were in power  instead of the Conservatives, it would have been much, much, worse.

Justin Ling writing at NationalPost:
Canada has given $5.3M to Syrian opposition    to support rebel efforts to counter Assad’s propaganda: source.
Canada has given more than $5.3-million to the Syrian opposition to set up pirate radio, train bloggers and document war crimes by the Syrian government, the National Post has learned.

The information, provided by a senior source at the Department of Foreign Affairs, shows Canada has been working with the U.S. and Britain to help rebels inside the war-torn country counter the propaganda put out by Bashar al-Assad’s state-controlled media.

The funding from Ottawa — which was disbursed through the Canadian Stabilization & Reconstruction Task Force — was paid in two tranches: $1-million in April, 2012; and the remainder in the fall of 2012.

The biggest chunk, $1.8-million, went to a P-CAT — for planning for a civil administration and transition, a U.S. initiative developed in Afghanistan that helps local leaders to prepare for post-war government........

BREAKING NEWS: Pope Francis converting to Islam

We are all muzzies now !!  Goodbye Jesus Christ.    Hello fucking Mohammad!

The Pope has broken yet another point of Vatican protocol by bowing when he met Queen Rania of Jordan.......

Will USA and France still bombard Syria after the bombshell news that Syrian rebels accidentally let off the CWs in Ghouta?

IF this  is not war propaganda and IF this is indeed the truth, then a lot of people should be dragged to The Hague and locked up until their death if they still carry out their evil intention of bombarding Syria.   The same article as below has been posted at and at the websites of many  bloggers... but the MSM are disregarding it  as the powers-that-be have already made up their minds on the next course of action.

EXCLUSIVE: Syrians In Ghouta Claim Saudi-Supplied Rebels Behind Chemical Attack.   
Ghouta, Syria — As the machinery for a U.S.-led military intervention in Syria gathers pace following last week’s chemical weapons attack, the U.S. and its allies may be targeting the wrong culprit.

Interviews with people in Damascus and Ghouta, a suburb of the Syrian capital, where the humanitarian agency Doctors Without Borders said at least 355 people had died last week from what it believed to be a neurotoxic agent, appear to indicate as much.

The U.S., Britain, and France as well as the Arab League have accused the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for carrying out the chemical weapons attack, which mainly targeted civilians. U.S. warships are stationed in the Mediterranean Sea to launch military strikes against Syria in punishment for carrying out a massive chemical weapons attack. The U.S. and others are not interested in examining any contrary evidence, with U.S Secretary of State John Kerry saying Monday that Assad’s guilt was “a judgment … already clear to the world.”

However, from numerous interviews with doctors, Ghouta residents, rebel fighters and their families, a different picture emerges. Many believe that certain rebels received chemical weapons via the Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, and were responsible for carrying out the dealing gas attack.

“My son came to me two weeks ago asking what I thought the weapons were that he had been asked to carry,” said Abu Abdel-Moneim, the father of a rebel fighting to unseat Assad, who lives in Ghouta.

Abdel-Moneim said his son and 12 other rebels were killed inside of a tunnel used to store weapons provided by a Saudi militant, known as Abu Ayesha, who was leading a fighting battalion. The father described the weapons as having a “tube-like structure” while others were like a “huge gas bottle.”

Ghouta townspeople said the rebels were using mosques and private houses to sleep while storing their weapons in tunnels.

Abdel-Moneim said his son and the others died during the chemical weapons attack. That same day, the militant group Jabhat al-Nusra, which is linked to al-Qaida, announced that it would similarly attack civilians in the Assad regime’s heartland of Latakia on Syria’s western coast, in purported retaliation.

“They didn’t tell us what these arms were or how to use them,” complained a female fighter named ‘K.’ “We didn’t know they were chemical weapons. We never imagined they were chemical weapons.”

“When Saudi Prince Bandar gives such weapons to people, he must give them to those who know how to handle and use them,” she warned. She, like other Syrians, do not want to use their full names for fear of retribution.

A well-known rebel leader in Ghouta named ‘J’ agreed. “Jabhat al-Nusra militants do not cooperate with other rebels, except with fighting on the ground. They do not share secret information. They merely used some ordinary rebels to carry and operate this material,” he said.

“We were very curious about these arms. And unfortunately, some of the fighters handled the weapons improperly and set off the explosions,” ‘J’ said.

Doctors who treated the chemical weapons attack victims cautioned interviewers to be careful about asking questions regarding who, exactly, was responsible for the deadly assault.

The humanitarian group Doctors Without Borders added that health workers aiding 3,600 patients also reported experiencing similar symptoms, including frothing at the mouth, respiratory distress, convulsions and blurry vision. The group has not been able to independently verify the information.

More than a dozen rebels interviewed reported that their salaries came from the Saudi government.

In a recent article for Business Insider, reporter Geoffrey Ingersoll highlighted Saudi Prince Bandar’s role in the two-and-a-half year Syrian civil war. Many observers believe Bandar, with his close ties to Washington, has been at the very heart of the push for war by the U.S. against Assad.

Ingersoll referred to an article in the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph about secret Russian-Saudi talks alleging that Bandar offered Russian President Vladimir Putin cheap oil in exchange for dumping Assad.

“Prince Bandar pledged to safeguard Russia’s naval base in Syria if the Assad regime is toppled, but he also hinted at Chechen terrorist attacks on Russia’s Winter Olympics in Sochi if ................

Middle Eastern Christians sold by American and French Christians for oil

UPDATE:  November 13, 2013.  Please note that the picture of the girl is a fake.  I just came across something that confirmed it for me.  I had my doubts from the time I had seen it but was not sure. It had nothing to do with the war in Syria and the girl is either an actress or a model.  War and propaganda.

Warning: One image below  is extremely graphic.  I prefer to think that that pic is photoshopped.  Want to remind people that America's allies in Syria are the ones responsible for what you see in the pics.  There are thousand of such atrocities committed by those who are in the pay of the USA, UK, France and others  ... and there must be a thousands more which have not been chronicled as yet.

Interview with the Syrian Christians Patriarch.
From OronteSyria SyrianChristiansInTimeOfConflict:
..."We Syrian Christians, sold by the West for oil”   
The Syrian Christians "have been betrayed and sold by the West' attacks the Syrian Catholic Patriarch Youssef III Younan. In the days when discussing military intervention, the patriarch once again criticizes "the cynical and machiavellian politics" of powers in these two and a half years they have armed the rebels, only to realize that there can be no military solution to the crisis.

Patriarch Younan, a few days ago another one of your priests was wounded in Damascus. What is known about his condition? 
Father Qassar Amer is 34 years old and was ordained a priest of the Diocese of Damascus in 2003. He is the pastor of our church in Qatanah in the south of the capital. This past Wednesday, August 21 at around 6 p.m. he was going to the church of Our Lady of Fatima, in the centre of Damascus, when a bomb exploded just a few feet from him, seriously injuring him in the face, stomach and legs. He was in surgery for hours and, from what his brother told me, thank God, he is a bit 'better, but cannot speak. We pray for his recovery.
The United States and France are planning to intervene militarily. What do you think? 
Instead of helping the various parties to the conflict to find ways of reconciliation, start the dialogue for reforms based on a pluralist system of government, these powers until now have armed the rebels, incited violence and poisoned yet more relations between Sunnis and Shiites. The West thinks that with the Sunnis in government democracy will replace the dictatorship, but this is a great illusion: regime change by force, without giving security to the secular parties of inspiration, will trigger a conflict worse than in Iraq.
You often pointed out the ambiguity of the West to the Gulf monarchies. Do you still consider these countries share responsibility for the war in Syria? 
Certainly, because we are disappointed by the machiavellian cynical politics in these countries and the West: France, Great Britain, United States ... they see oil and forget their principles. For more than two years, along with Turkey, they are saying that the regime will fall: this is the biggest lie told to the respective public opinions or the worst mistake of calculation that has been made over the past decade. The regime is still there, the country is destroyed and more than 100,000 people dead. We Christians have been betrayed and sold for oil. The West supports democracy in the name of the regimes that have nothing democratic about them: Qatar and Saudi Arabia are among the most backward countries of the world. Their leaders are received in palaces like western heroes of democracy, of political pluralism and tolerance!.........

Open Doors published    its report on persecution once a year, concluding that “an estimated 100 million Christians” faced persecution around the world in 2012.
Syria went from 36th in 2011 to 11th position in the Open Doors index, with the report pointing to a perceived connection between Syrian President al-Assad and the Christian minority making them targets for attack.
“Foreign extremists now terrorize Christians in Anti-Christian Violence,” warned Ron Boyd-MacMillan, Open Doors Chief Strategy Officer.
According to its statement, “For many years, Christians were able to worship freely in Syria under President Assad’s regime. Now…anti-Christian extremists entering Syria make life impossible for Christians, causing tens of thousands of Christians to flee the country in the last few months.”
Open Doors further warned that “many Syrian Christians are facing violence against them, many have been kidnapped or murdered, while churches have been severely damaged or demolished.”
“As the regime is losing control over the country, tens of thousands of Christians are forced to flee Syria,” it added, and noted that “could lead to further isolation of Christians and their mass exodus like the one we witnessed in Iraq.”

....Syria is believed to be the land    from which Christianity spread to the four corners of the world, and it is home to a church dating back to the time of Christ’s disciples. It was here that Paul the Apostle began his journey, and the country still hosts some of the world’s oldest churches. Some Syrians still speak the ancient Aramaic language that Christ spoke, and for centuries Syrian Christians were fully integrated into the larger society and co-existed with other faiths and cultures.
However, today Syria’s Christians, along with other segments of society, are facing new challenges triggered by the uprising of the Syrian people against the regime led by Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad. They also bear the burden of the distinct challenges that face the continuing presence of Christianity in the Middle East as a whole.
The exodus of Christians from Syria has been increasing over the past four decades since president Hafez Al-Assad, father of Bashar Al-Assad, took power in 1971. When the country became independent in 1945, Christians represented some 20 per cent of the population, but by 1980 this figure had dropped to 16.5 per cent, or around 2.5 million people, and it dipped to 11 per cent in 1990. Today, it is estimated at six per cent of the population, or 1.5 million people.
According to Syrian scholars, the exodus of the country’s Christian community compromises the region’s culture and diverse heritage, and it has taken place despite the fact that the country’s constitution and laws grant Christians full rights. Christians have been appointed to senior government positions, such as the present parliamentary speaker Faris Khouri, and they have served as cabinet ministers, army chiefs of staff, and held senior positions in political, diplomatic and administrative institutions............

From LesFemmesBlogspot:
...."The Haddad family had no doubts   about why they had to escape from Homs. 'We left because they were trying to kill us,' said 18-year-old Noura Haddad. She is now staying with relations in the town of Zahle in the Bekaa Valley. 'They wanted to kill us because we were Christians. They were calling us Kaffirs, even little children saying these things. Those who were our neighbours turned against us.'"...

From ChristianPost:
.....Some other examples of Syrian Christians,  

27-year-old Father Michael Kayal of the Armenian Catholic Church in Aleppo was abducted in February while riding a bus after Islamists spotted his clerical garb. He has not been seen since.
Greek Orthodox priest Maher Mahfouz was kidnapped around the same time and has not reappeared.
Syrian Orthodox parish priest Father Fadi Haddad was kidnapped last December after he left his church in the town of Qatana to negotiate the release of one of his kidnapped parishioners. A week later, Fr. Haddad's mutilated corpse was found by the roadside, with his eyes gouged out.
Yohannes A. (whose last name has been redacted by Fides protect his family) was summarily executed. An Islamist gunman stopped the bus to Aleppo and checked the background of each passenger. When the gunman noticed Yohannes' last name was Armenian, they singled him out for a search. After finding a cross around his neck, one of the terrorists shot point blank at the cross, tearing open the man's chest.
A woman from Hassake recounted in December to Swedish journalist Nuri Kino how her husband and son were shot in the head by Islamists. "Our only crime is being Christians," she answers, when asked if there had been a dispute.
18-year-old Gabriel fled with his family from Hassake after his father was shot for having a crucifix hanging from his car's rear-view mirror. The son told Kino: "After the funeral, the threats against our family and other Christians increased. The terrorists called us and said that it was time to disappear; we had that choice, or we would be killed."..........

Where in the world is Damascus ?

Take the test   here.  

Zoom into the map before you click your answer otherwise it's tough to pinpoint.  Although, IMO,  I know my geography,  I took the test without zooming in and found myself more than 200 miles away from Damascus and into Israel.  

Felicity Morse writing at TheIndependent:
.....Given the widespread news coverage  of Syria over the past week and frequent reporting of the conflict for the past twenty months, it seems surprising that anyone wouldn’t know where Damascus was......

........He said "I can tell you that, as of writing this sentence, there have been 19 answers sent through the Houses of Parliament's proxy servers: 18 were very close, but one guess was in the middle of western Mongolia. I hope that respondent isn't in charge of anything military. "

Other results showed that many people knew that it was to the east of a sea, but picked the Black or Caspian rather than the Mediterranean, while 65% were within 500 miles, or “vaguely in the Middle East”. Turkey, Iraq, and Iran were popular choices. 18% were further than 1,000 miles away. Many of these guessed somewhere in the Sahara Desert, or in the Balkan states.

Two people picked Siberia and one person picked Texas.............

Are we the ones we are looking for?

The first vid is from a few hours ago.  The second is from several months ago and to my ears at least, it sounds rather kooky  ... but   I am always open to listening to different people on the origins of man.   All beliefs, guesses, facts, non-facts, lies, non-lies, true history, made-up history .... everything is fascinating.... as long as nobody advocates the  killing of other human beings.

Two "colorless" females get raped by a gang of 10 - 12 black males

You just gotta shake your head and wonder anew  at the politically correct fucks working at  the news media who tell us that the rapists were black (as if we needed to know that ... rapists are usually black or are from the  Muslim community... we all know that, so thanks but no thanks for divulging that earth-shaking bit of information)  but refrain from telling us whether the women were black, green, brown or white.   

Every news outlet shouted their loudest about Zimmerman the "white Latino" and Trayvon Martin the "black teenager" .... so you can understand my curiosity about this horrific incident in the Wilmington Park, right?

Ileana Diaz writing at CBSPhiladelphia:  
Police in Wilmington are investigating   the reported gang rape of two women at a park in Delaware.

Police say two women, ages 32 and 24, were reportedly attacked and sexually assaulted by a group of 10 to 12 black male juveniles in Kosciuszko Park at about 6:54 p.m. Thursday. According to police, the suspects, who range in age from 12 to 17-years-old, remain on the loose.

The victims were transported to Christiana Hospital for treatment........

Prisoners to be used as human shields in Syria ?

This is just one of the many, many, many reasons why every reasonable human being should do their best to stop warmongers in their tracks.  Each additional strike at the enemy will provoke even more mayhem ... if not on the USA, then on others within reach of the enemy.    War brings out the worst in men.  We know it and yet we don't do much to stop wars.

Carlo Munoz writing at TheHill:
 ....Embattled Syrian President Bashar Assad is moving prisoners taken by the regime to military sites across the country that could be targeted by U.S. forces 
Buses reportedly filled with Syrian prisoners streamed from facilities in Damascus toward the Mezzeh airbase to the south of the city, according to recent reports. 
Mezzeh airbase is likely one of the key military targets U.S. military and intelligence officials have tagged for missile strikes in the country. 
The move is a possible sign that Assad is planning to use human shields as a way to deter American warships from launching missile strikes against vital military installations in the country. .............

Amnesty International lays out blueprint on how to fight wars in a "humanitarian" way ....

you know "humanitarian" don't you?  Yup,  like the methods we use to kill cattle and other livestock for  our meat and sustenance.   I wonder if America has invented a stun missile like the stun guns used on livestock before killing them.  Yup ... now that would be a good idea, eh?  Bombard away at Syria with  stun missiles before sending in the ones for the kill.   

Does Amnesty Intl. also have a blueprint on how to freeze all the  "prime cuts" we will get from Syrians after the "humanitarian" killing of them?   

Instead of a full scale cry against strikes on Syria,  an entity that's supposed to be anti-war,  shows its true colors.  And the colors, each and every last one of them, are biased.

From AmnestyOrg:   
In recent days, several governments,  including the UK, USA and France have signalled their intention to take military action against the Syrian government, which they hold responsible for the alleged chemical weapons attacks of 21 August. The horrific scenes in the dozens of videos I have watched from those incidents are some of the most haunting I have witnessed during this long and brutal conflict.

So now the spectre of an international armed conflict looms between the Syrian government and foreign military forces.The protection of civilians is a key priority for Amnesty International and that is why we call on all parties who could be involved to comply with international humanitarian law. In particular, those concerned absolutely must:

Refrain from targeting civilians or civilian objects;
Refrain from carrying out indiscriminate and disproportionate attacks;
Refrain from using weapons which are inherently indiscriminate or otherwise prohibited under international humanitarian law, including cluster munitions;
Take all necessary precautions in attacks to spare civilians, including by issuing warnings to civilians wherever feasible, and paying particular heed to the fact that detainees are being held in military bases and facilities;
Take precautions to protect civilians under their control against the effect of attacks, including avoiding, to the extent feasible, locating military objectives within or near densely populated areas, and removing, where feasible, civilians from the vicinity of military objectives;
Refrain from using civilians to render military objectives immune from attack (that is, as human shields).....

Dear Mr. Joao Samuel Caholo ... the West does not give a fig about black Africa, unless you have lotta oil to give us ....

don't you know we are far too busy and deeply involved in saving brown Muslims from killing other brown Muslims and replacing one set of dictators with a brand new set,  the kind we can control who will okay our  plans to lay oil and gas pipelines in the countries where the  dictators we got rid of, pooh-poohed  our plans?   So ... please stop your pleas for helping black Africa uplift itself.  Okay?  Message received?  Do you capiche?

....The Southern African Development Community  has had to revisit its plans to raise funding for its ambitious regional development plan in the wake of a cold-shoulder from western nations and multilateral finance institutions.

“Nobody has come forward to fund any of the projects we have outlined. I have been to Japan, the United States and the United Kingdom, among other countries,” SADC deputy executive secretary for regional integration Joao Samuel Caholo told IPS.

“What is holding us back as SADC is our inability to fund our own priorities and programmes. Therefore, a sustainable funding mechanism has to be established if we are to show that we are committed and progressing.”

However, development experts have questioned whether SADC is sufficiently mature to handle ambitious projects such as the Regional Infrastructure Development Master Plan (RIDMP), which is estimated to cost 500 billion dollars.

The RIDMP aims to rebuild the region’s deficit road, rail and ports infrastructure, increase its power-generation capacity, and establish communication and weather systems. Access to water, and providing the infrastructure for its distribution is also a priority.

“SADC has the potential and we are asking for the goodwill of all member states. Let them put in the seed money,” said the outgoing executive secretary.

The long-awaited SADC Development Fund will be modelled on the European Investment Bank and other regional funding ventures. SADC countries will initially contribute 1.2 billion dollars or 51 percent. The private sector and international partners will contribute the remaining 37 and 12 percent respectively.

Contributions will be over a five-year period starting in 2013 based on a country’s affordability, institutional capacity and other criteria, which Caholo was reluctant to divulge.

“If after five years a country fails to pay its contribution, its shares will be recalled and distributed among the complying states so that the 51 percent shareholding by African states is maintained,” Caholo said.

However, a member state will still be able to access funds for its development projects as outlined in the RIDMP.......

Can Obama be impeached if he strikes Syria without approval from Congress?

Pat Buchanan makes the case for impeachment in case he does.  

Canada won't participate in any military intervention in Syria

PM Stephen Harper  made it clear today.   Canada won't be joining you-know-who in the madness planned for Syria.

From SunNews:
Canada won't be participating in any military intervention in Syria   but supports the countries who are now considering launching an attack against the troubled country, the prime minister said Thursday.

"At present the Canadian government has no plans for a Canadian military mission [to Syria]," Stephen Harper said. "Notwithstanding [Canada's] reluctance [to getting involved], the risks of not acting in the face of what appears to be [an escalating situation] appears extremely dangerous."

Harper's comments come a day after Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird told reporters Canada's role would likely be limited to a supporting one, and that the government would also lend political support to any military strikes.

A meeting of the United Nations Security Council earlier this week ended without consensus. Of the five member countries, Russia and China have maintained their support for Syria's Bashar Al Assad, despite pressure from the U.S., France and the U.K. to potentially launch some kind of strike.

Baird said Wednesday that while an attack using drones and cruise missiles was being considered, Canada has neither.

NDP Leader Tom Mulcair said Wednesday that MPs should be recalled to the House of Commons to debate the specifics of what Canada's role would be.

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has also stated he believes MPs should return to the House to, among other things, discuss Syria.

Harper's statement that Canada will not become militarily involved in Syria precludes previous calls from opposition parties that Parliament would have to be reconvened so that Canadian engagement could be debated.

Sarin gas found with Syrian islamists in Turkey several weeks back

The vid is from June, 2013.  So much evidence of jihadists in possession of CWs and yet Obama and gang choose to point fingers at the Assad regime and only at the Assad regime.

Iraq's civil war progress report

Shiites getting massacred every which way they turn.  Sunnis have that extra adrenaline supply coming  from their Western masters that keep them going from one bombing to the next without a bead of sweat on their brows.  Paid  hitmen of the Sunni sheikdoms and their buddies.

From CNN:
.....Tensions festered    in Iraq Wednesday after nearly 50 people died and dozens of others were wounded in a string of bombings mostly in and around Baghdad, police said
The bloodshed occurred during an intense time in Iraq. The country has endured months of escalating violence stemming from decades-old discord between the nation's Sunnis and Shiites, the two largest branches of Islam. And the government says it is gearing up if the Syrian conflict next door escalates.
Seventeen attacks unfolded in and around Iraq's capital, primarily in Shiite areas, police said. Police believe the strikes -- which killed 46 people -- occurred over a two-hour period and appeared to be coordinated.......

From DailyStar:
....A bomb hidden inside a pickup truck   loaded with vegetables exploded in a market north of Baghdad, the deadlier of two vehicle bombings that killed 24 people in Iraq on Thursday.

The blasts in the city of Samarra and the Baghdad suburb of Abu Ghraib are the latest in a seemingly unrelenting wave of violence pounding Iraq a decade after the U.S.-led invasion. They follow a spate of car bombings and other attacks a day earlier that killed at least 82.

The pickup truck bomb responsible for most of Thursday's deaths tore through a market in Samarra, killing 18 and wounding 32, according to police.........

From Yahoo:
....More than a dozen bomb blasts    ripped through Shiite districts in and around Baghdad on Wednesday, the bloodiest in a wave of attacks that killed 68 people across Iraq.

The worst of the bloodshed struck the capital and surrounding areas in a spate of apparently coordinated car bombings and suicide attacks during morning rush-hour.

Angry residents of one neighbourhood chased down a suspected attacker and killed him before setting his corpse ablaze..........

Sun News' Brian Lilley gets owned by an ideal Canadian-Muslim

Live and learn!
Get with the program, Sun News network !   Just because the idea to ban religious symbols in public-funded entities has stemmed from the Left does not mean you guys have to keep harping on how bad the idea happens to be.  I hope the initiative from the Quebec govt. gets passed into law.  

Canada's Foreign Affair Minister Baird blathers on clueless

If the present ruling party, the Conservative govt. of  PM Stephen Harper so much as by even a tenth of an inch sides with Obama's madness to carry out strikes on Syria ... then believe you me ... come the next election,  it's "goodbye Harper"  and "hello Trudeau"  .... that's a foregone conclusion.  One of  Canada's largest voting block (might be even the largest) is the segment that is now bursting at the seams with Chinese, Indian and Middle Eastern immigrants and you will have a hard time to find even 1% of that segment in favor of interfering in  countries we have no business interfering with.

So .... go ahead dear Hon. John Baird, keep shooting at the mouth with your ineffectual nothings ... just so long as Canada stays put in Canada. 

From SunNews:
Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird promises  Canada will do more as the "brutal struggle" drags on in Syria - but he says it's not yet clear whether we have the firepower in the region to contribute to a possible military strike.

Canada will have to wait for U.S. President Barack Obama's definitive decision on a strike against Syria and until then, "we don't know whether we have the capacity to be part of any military engagement, which by all accounts will be limited in focus," Baird said.

Baird was speaking in Montreal on Wednesday after meeting with George Sabra, head of the Syrian National Council. The Syrian opposition leader is currently in Canada on a speaking tour.

Canada agrees with the U.S., the U.K. and France that the reported chemical weapons attack in Damascus on Aug. 21 warrants a "firm response" from the international community.

"The Syrian regime has charted a dangerous path - and the appropriate consequences will follow," Baird said.

Still, he conceded a United Nations Security Council resolution authorizing military action is unlikely. Both Russia and China have repeatedly used their security council veto power to block international action in the Syrian conflict.

Canada has sent almost $160 million in humanitarian aid to the region since January 2012.............

Wanna know how buddies of Obama, Cameron, Hollande, McCain and Hague torture Americans caught in their traps?

Tell me, who in their right minds would arm and fund the kind of swine roaming free in Syria?   Who in their right minds would want to bomb the side that's trying to eliminate this plague of jihadists?  We are living in one big crazy  world when we hear and see our leaders do just the opposite of what we want them to say and do. 

From NYTimes:
American Tells of Odyssey as Prisoner of Syrian Rebels  Matthew Schrier was helpless. An American photographer held in a rebel-controlled prison in the Syrian city of Aleppo, he and a fellow prisoner had been caught trying to gouge a hole in their cell’s wooden door. The captors took his cellmate, he said, beat him, and brought him back with blood-streaked ankles and feet.

Now was Mr. Schrier’s turn.

Wearing masks, his jailers led him out, sat him down and forced a car tire over his knees. They slid a wooden rod behind his legs, locking the tire in place. Then they rolled him over. Mr. Schrier was face down on a basement floor, he said, legs immobilized, bare feet facing up.

“Give him 115,” one of his captors said in English, as they began whipping his feet with a metal cable.

When the torture ended Mr. Schrier could not walk. His captors, he said, dragged him to his cell. He remembers their parting phrase: “Have you heard of Guantánamo Bay?”

For seven months, Mr. Schrier, 35, was a prisoner in Syria of jihadi fighters opposed to President Bashar al-Assad. Held in bases and prisons run by two Islamist rebel groups, he said, he was robbed, beaten and accused of being an American spy by men who then assumed his identity online.

His captors drained one of his bank accounts. They shopped in his name on eBay. They sent messages from his e-mail account to his mother and his best friend assuring them he was fine, but had extended his trip to do more work.

“I’m doing good man,” read an e-mail to the friend on Feb. 2. “I have access to Internet for like 5 minutes or so, and I will not be able to log in my e-mail for at least the next few weeks.”

Mr. Schrier escaped on July 29, he said, by squeezing out of a basement window and wandering, in shoes too small and with the long beard he had grown in captivity, through Aleppo until he found other rebels.

These men protected him and drove him the next day to Turkish authorities at the border. American diplomats soon whisked Mr. Schrier away.

Now in the United States, Mr. Schrier has returned with a firsthand account of the descent by elements of the anti-Assad forces into sanctimonious hatred and crime. His experience reflects the sharply deteriorated climate for foreigners and moderate Syrians in areas subject to the whims of armed religious groups whose members roam roads, staff checkpoints and occupy a constellation of guerrilla bases.......

Dragon shoots out fierce fire to burn West's eagerness to start World War III

Bears and Dragons stand by Syria.  Good show!   These two nations are acting like the adults in a room full of unruly children who need to have their ears boxed mightily and made to sit in a corner.

From SouthChinaNews:
Chinese state media warned     the West against strikes on Syria on Thursday as momentum mounted for President Bashar al-Assad’s regime to be punished over an alleged chemical weapons attack.

In an editorial headed “No excuse for strikes”, the state-run China Daily said the US and its Western allies were “acting as judge, jury and executioner”.

“Any military intervention into Syria would have dire consequences for regional security and violate the norms governing international relations,” it said, adding such a move “will only exacerbate the crisis and could have unforeseen and unwelcome consequences”.

Making a comparison with the war in Iraq, it said the international community should not allow “itself to be led by the nose by US intelligence, which after all was responsible for claiming Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction”.

The foreign ministry has advised any Chinese citizens in Syria to leave as soon as possible, and recent media reports from China's First Financial Daily have revealed that Chinese entrepreneurs and businessmen working in Syria have begun pulling out of the country.

A spokesperson for the Chinese embassy in Syria surnamed Feng told First Financial Daily reporters that major Chinese-funded enterprises remaining in Syria were few, and most would "soon withdaw or reduce staff".

In New York, Britain pushed the other four veto-holding members of the UN Security Council to authorise military action against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to protect Syrian civilians - a move certain to be blocked by Russia and, probably, China. The meeting ended without a decision.........

Time for some HAHAHAHAHAH

the Onion relies on satire to convey complex situations.  Their latest is really good.

Syria conflict intensifies as Bears Enter War   .....“I don’t know what side the bears are on, but at this point it might not even matter,” he continued. “They’re everywhere and they’re extremely angry.”..........

.....According to Syrians on both sides of the conflict, entire swaths of the country are now off-limits for fear that bombed-out buildings and blast craters could be harboring bands of angry scorpions, komodo dragons, mace-wielding cavaliers in full chain mail, or, as children recently swimming off the country’s coast discovered, giant piranhas.

“We’ve tried laying traps, blanketing the streets with land mines—we’ve even imported several dozen cargo planes full of Africanized bees to combat the bears, but the bees just ended up attacking us, too. Nothing has worked and we’re running out of options,” said Ahmed Rahmoud, a spokesman for the embattled regime. “While President Assad is, at present, willing to sit down and negotiate, these creatures are not only leaderless, they seem completely unwilling to compromise.”

At press time, thousands of lions, hawks, anacondas, fire ants, flesh-eating bacteria, shrieking black-caped horsemen, and leather-clad motorcycle gangs were seen amassing just a few miles away from the Syrian border........

The military might of the USA is poised and ready

Most of us thought we would never again see the USA use the  kind of bombardment that devastated Iraq and blew up mountains of sand in Afghanistan, didn't we?  I know I didn't.  At that time didn't we say to each other "after this display of military power, nobody, not even Russia will ever antagonize the USA"   and didn't we go in awe for days after that at how great and mighty America's military power was and all that?  Did we ever think that the same kind of display would be seen again and this soon?  However, IMO, this time it's coming  for a reason that's not a reason at all but a devious, evil  plan more devious and more evil than the strategy of going after Iraq instead of Saudi Arabia.

I truly feel sorry for the  pro-Assad side.   Even if  they use every single item in their depleted stock of munitions and even if Iran tries to help them to hit back at the USA and even if  Hezbollah does their very worst .... I   doubt there will be even an inch of a dent made in the force coming their way.  BUT ... if Russia or China jumps in .... then all bets are off.  AND .. if both jump in then it's goodbye Earth the way we know it.

From AP:
How possible US strike against Syria could unfold  ...Four U.S. Navy destroyers — the USS Gravely, USS Mahan, USS Barry and USS Ramage — are in the eastern Mediterranean Sea waiting for the order to launch.

They are armed with dozens of Tomahawk cruise missiles, which have a range of about 1,000 nautical miles, and are used for deep, precise targeting. Each one is about 20 feet long and less than two feet in diameter, and carries a 1,000 pound warhead.

The missiles fly at low altitudes and their range allows the ships to sit far off the coast, out of range of any potential response by the Syrian government. Some ships have cameras that can provide battle damage assessments.

Britain's Royal Navy has deployed at least one Trafalgar-class attack submarine to the Mediterranean, though it declines to specify where. Each of the subs typically carries around a dozen Tomahawk missiles. That supply, if exhausted, could be quickly restocked by a Royal Navy nine-ship task force that deployed this month to the eastern Mediterranean.

The British Royal Air Force base Akrotiri, 175 miles west of the Syrian coast, could be used by cruise missile-capable U.S., British and French aircraft...........
