It is being reported that in the last few weeks Syrian security forces have shot and killed over 200people in the last 4 weeks.  Since the uprisings have occurred in North Africa the Syrian people have taken to the streets demanding that Syrian President Assad step down and allow democratic reform.  His response is to shoot people in the streets so sounds like to me NATO needs to start drawing up plans to conduct missile and air strikes to save the Syrian people from being massacred like the excuse we were all given for the Libyan operation.  However, even though protestors are being shot and killed there will be no intervention to save the Syrian protestors because they are on their own.

But think about this, what better opportunity to get rid of another antagonist in the middle east?  I say this only for the fact of the lame excuse for attacking Libya.  We could get rid of a lot of problems by toppling the Syrian regime.  For one Iran would lose a key ally on the northern front of Israel and a conduit for weapons to their patron in Lebanon which is Hezbollah.  A big obstacle to middle east peace could be removed and serious discussions on settling this matter once and for all.  But this will not happen!! The status quo will remain because to me no money or profit can be made by taking out Syria.  North Africa is sitting on huge oil reserves and this needs to be tapped and Qadhafi must go because he is holding up the progress of getting to these reserves.

I just get tired of being given excuses for attacking countries like Libya so we can “save their people”.  Really… so we can “save them”!! Who is going to save the people of this country (US) when gas is $5.00 a gallon, food prices keep rising and no jobs that pay enough for people to survive.  It is all smoke and mirrors when these things go on and I don’t believe a word of it!!

I have watched the war in Libya for the last few weeks with amazement and wonder why the west has decided to launch air and missile strikes in Libya and the reason is to protect the Libyan people and stop a humanitarian crisis.  Using other African nations as an example, why isn’t the west using air and missile strikes in the Ivory Coast where an election was held and the opposition won and the current President does not want to step down.  The possibility exists of a humanitarian crises so we must intervene and stop this?? What about Darfur??  There was a confirmed slaughter of the population but yet no air and missile strikes to help these people!!   I could go on and on, but these are just a few examples I site to show why for the air and missile strike on Libya is a shame!!

In no way am I defending Qadhafi but lets look at what has transpired.  We know he sponsored terrorism and played a part in the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie Scotland.  This case was pursued for years and I believe the Libyan government paid compensation for this act which they should.  The west was worried that Libya was trying to produce nuclear weapons so a few years after the war in Iraq and Saddam Hussein captured the Bush Administration cut a deal with Qadhafi that he would be welcomed into the family of nations if he gave up his nuclear weapons and he did so.  In the last few years it looked like the West and Libya were getting along and then all of a sudden these revolutions start in North Africa and these governments begin to fall one right after another, but in Libya the government fought back.  The rebels were on the verge of defeat until the west intervened and I bet Qadhafi is regretting giving up his nuclear program because the west does not attack countries with nuclear capabilities!

All the while the liberals in this country attacked the Bush Administration for attacking Iraq and not finding weapons of mass destruction.  I ask this question of the liberals; Is there any evidence that civilians are or were being slaughtered? Libya does not have that many people, was there really going to be a humanitarian crisis?  My point is this, I believe there are powers behind the scenes that set in motion a chain of events that are controlled and manipulated and the revolutions in North Africa were set in motion by outside forces to change the entire structure of North African governments.  When Qadhafi did not go quietly and the rebels were on the verge of defeat then the west intervened because Libya must change and Qadhafi removed from power to help bring the muslim world in line with the New World Order as I believe these are the last group of people who have not bought into this scenario.

Obviously, this is just my opinion and have no concrete facts other than watching events unfold and by following them it is pretty easy to get a general idea of what is going instead of just paying attention to what the media is feeding us everyday.  Think for yourself and it is not to hard to figure out.

This situation with North Korea continues to be alarming with recent intelligence reports indicating the North Koreans are developing underwater nuclear mines and torpedoes to neutralize any threat from Japanese and South Korean naval bases and American aircraft carriers.  This development should not surprise anyone as all of this is being done with the blessing of the Chinese government.  What other country in this region can China rely on to “stick it in the eye” of the United States and its allies, none because there are no other countries in this region what want to side with China because of possible Chinese hegemony in the region.

North Korea is a dirt poor country but has all this money to develop nuclear weapons? They get help from China so we have a situation here that shows what happens when you don’t finish the job such as the Korean war.  I know hindsight is 20/20 but if North Korea was defeated when they were on the ropes and China was a third-rate power at the time there would not be this problem today.  Now that China has the 2nd largest economy and developing it military that matter is that much more complicated in putting North Korea in its place.  With that being said I have several options that I will list that should be considered for putting North Korea in its place.

1)Tell North Korea and China that the gloves will come off and Japan, South Korea , Taiwan and even Vietnam will be allowed to develop their own nuclear weapons and there can be and old-fashioned arms race in the region to restore the balance of power.

2)Once the arms race has started no further “gifts” will be given to North Korea if they behave.  The only gift they will given is American military buildup in the region to go along with a nuclear armed Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.

3)While I am not an expert at economics what if the U.S. tells China if the don’t reign in the North Koreans then this country will default on the money they have loaned us.  Then the U.S. can be like these other third world countries and go to the IMF and World Bank for loans.  This country buys all that crap made in China that is either junk or making everyone sick so they need us more than we need them.

This is nothing more than the age-old situation of the “bully” thinking he is tougher than anyone else on the block and until someone stands up and knocks him down the bully will continue and this is what needs to happen with North Korea, the bully needs to be knocked down!

There has been considerable debate over the last few weeks as to the origin of the “con trail” that was witnessed over the west coast of the United States.  We have been lead to believe by officials this was from an airplane but was not a missile from our military or any other military.  I for one am not an aviation expert, but I have seen con-trail ‘s  in the sky and this does not look like an airplane con trail.  It reminds of a con trail of a solid fuel rocket similar to what we see when the Space Shuttle is launched.

There has been speculation this was a missile fired from a Chinese submarine and my gut tells me this is probably correct and here is why I believe this.  China just had the run in with Japan about fishing rights and Japan holding a Chinese boat captain because of this incident.  The issue was finally resolved but it was seen as a Chinese victory in the matter.  China wants to exert its influence in the South China Sea which is worrisome to Japan, South Korea and Vietnam.  Also, the incident with North Korea shelling a South Korean Island was not done without prior approval from the Chinese Government as North Korea does not do anything without the approval of China.  Finally, I believe China will try to make a move on Taiwan as they believe this is a runaway province and want it back.

Therefore, this missile shot was a warning to the United States of Chinese power and to not interfere in the region.  In another era this country may have taken a quid pro quo response and retaliated with similar action.   In order to return stability to the region let Japan and South Korea get their own nuclear weapons and return a balance of power to the region. It may come to this because of the U.S. out of control spending over the last 30 years and China holds our debt  and appear to be in a position to dictate terms to the United States. I mean this is a simple concept; China holds all the money so they get to make all the rules just like in the game of Monopoly as the goal is to acquire the most money and win the game not accumulate the most debt because that means you go broke and lose and that is where the United States is headed.
