Where would Syria be if this did not happen:

Syria became an independent republic in 1946, although democratic rule was ended by a CIA-supported coup in March 1949, followed by two more coups that year

Where would Iran be today if this had not happened:

The 1953 Iranian coup d'état, known in Iran as the 28 Mordad coup, was the overthrow of the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran Mohammad Mosaddegh on 19 August 1953, orchestrated by the United Kingdom (under the name 'Operation Boot') and the United States (under the name TPAJAX Project).[3][4][5][6]

Mossadegh had sought to audit the books of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC), a British corporation (now BP) and to change the terms of the company's access to Iranian oil reserves. Upon alleged refusal of the AIOC to cooperate with the Iranian government, the parliament (Majlis) voted to nationalize the assets of the company and expel their representatives from the country.[7][8][9] Following the coup in 1953, a military government under General Fazlollah Zahedi was formed which allowed Mohammad-Rezā Shāh Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran (Persian for an Iranian king),[9] to effectively rule the country as an absolute monarch. He relied heavily on United States support to hold on to power until his own overthrow in February 1979.[7][8][9][10] In August 2013 the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) admitted that it was involved in both the planning and the execution of the coup, including the bribing of Iranian politicians, security and army high-ranking officials, as well as pro-coup propaganda.[11][12] The CIA is quoted acknowledging the coup was carried out "under CIA direction" and "as an act of U.S. foreign policy, conceived and approved at the highest levels of government." [13]

Where would Iraq be today if this had not happened:

Support to Iraq was given via technological aid, intelligence, the sale of chemical and biological warfare technology and military equipment, and satellite intelligence. While there was direct combat between Iran and the United States, it is not universally agreed that the fighting between the U.S. and Iran was specifically to benefit Iraq, or for separate issues between the U.S. and Iran. American official ambiguity towards which side to support was summed up by Henry Kissinger when he remarked, "It's a pity they both can't lose."[165]


Enough of the war already.

We have been at war, either cold or hot, all my life now, and before as well.

We've been monkeyf*cking around in the Middle East since FDR and King Ibn Saud.

Enough already.

And the Russians spent ten years in Afghanistan and got nowhere. What do we do? If we ignore them will they attack us? If we attack them will we keep them at bay? Half the problem is we don't fight a REAL war, we carefully attack certain places.

Golf Disrupts Military Wedding (Heterosexuals).

Post  News Hawk on Mon Dec 29, 2014 12:41 pm

"...The episode is the second time the president’s golf game has caused a commotion since he began his vacation last week.

Over the weekend, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak had to defend his recent golf outing with the president after being criticized back home.

The Army couple actually invited Obama to their wedding, knowing he would be on the island. However, the president declined the invitation, wishing them happiness.

“It was kind of ironic they got the letter from them and then, within hours, they were told they had to be moved due to him,” Jamie McCarthy, Mallue's sister, told Bloomberg. “It was emotional, especially for her — she’s the bride and in less than 24 hours they had to change everything they had planned.”

on January 10, 2013, President Obama signed a bill that provides armed guards to himself and his wife for the rest of their lives.

Easier to make a foursome?
