  1. Hi, Charles & Dilip

    So in the end game the US got played by third rate player. Let’s not forget half of war chest on the table to boot. Irag/Iran war crap all for what? Congress should be shame of themselves for funding this fiasco but no!! they want more collateral damage to go with blood that’s already on there hands. When war crimes committee gets itself together don’t stop with Mr Bushwack himself BushJR/Blair/Cheney/Rice etc. but remember all the reps from congress who let it get to this state of disarray. What really sad case of foreign policy that’s in operation at this stage. Only decline is in our future if this state of affairs continue to stay in motion.

  2. Google Albert Pike and how a certain “spiritual guide ” told him three world wars were being planned-told to him in the 1870′s…the first two and the coming were described to a “t”..Believe or don’t believe..but read and decide.

  3. Google ” Albert Pike predicted 3 world wars “.
