Syria Getting Serious, Muktada al-Sadr and Barack Obama Join Illuminati, Barack Lacking Father Figure

Ezra Klein
John Avlon
George Friedman

"President Obama, if you look closely at his positions, is a moderate Republican of the early 1990s. And the Republican Party he’s facing has abandoned many of its best ideas in its effort to oppose him." - Ezra Klein
"Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson announced his candidacy for the GOP presidential nomination. Because when the other candidates aren't generating enough excitement, it's time to bring out Gary Johnson." – Conan O'Brien

"His real name is Gary Hussein Johnson. That's where it gets interesting." – Conan O'Brien

The situation in Syria is pretty drastic, unless you are one of the region's conservative autocratic generals that fled to Syria for safety, and now is giving the security service advice. As a result, people have vanished from their homes at night, 500 protesters were just arrested in daylight, doctors have been arrested at their hospitals for treating injured protesters, and this weekend tanks were dusted off and put in use against those unarmed citizens.

Certain forces in the region don't want Assad to leave Syria. They don't want a liberal government that might become more friendly towards Israel, so you have a hot-headed, self-declared rebel group like Hezbollah aligned with the arrogant military leaders, who have had a history of murdering whole towns in the past. Then, Iran doesn't want to give away its hard fought for influence in Syria. A Syrian government run on more democratic principles would affect Iranian society  more than the other way around, in effect leaving Iran and Saudi Arabia as the only remaining religious dictatorships. If the Yemeni president does indeed step down, or he just lied to try and stop the protesting. Ironic, because Saudi arabia has tried to stop the encroaching influence of Iran and the Shias, and soon it may become equated with it as an old, anachronistic hold-out towards modernizing themselves. Plus, members of the royal family would no longer receive part of the oil revenues, maybe forced to give most of their fortunes back...

Ezra Klein has an opinion piece that Barack Obama actually has political positions like an Republican moderate used to have, which I've been saying for about a year now, and the Republican Party has gone so far to the right that it measures off the charts into loonyville. Have some tea, said the Mad Hatter... John Avlon profiles Ron Paul, the once obscure Texas representative who has espoused both sane and insane ideas under the guise of libertarianism. And George Friedman is concerned over the influence that Iran has and will have over Iraq once the US troops leave: "The United States told the Iraqi government last week that if it wants U.S. troops to remain in Iraq beyond the deadline of Dec. 31, 2011, as stipulated by the current Status of Forces Agreement between Washington and Baghdad, it would have to inform the United States quickly. Unless a new agreement is reached soon, the United States will be unable to remain. The implication in the U.S. position is that a complex planning process must be initiated to leave troops there and delays will not allow that process to take place.

What is actually going on is that the United States is urging the Iraqi government to change its mind on U.S. withdrawal, and it would like Iraq to change its mind right now in order to influence some of the events taking place in the Persian Gulf. The Shiite uprising in Bahrain and the Saudi intervention, along with events in Yemen, have created an extremely unstable situation in the region, and the United States is afraid that completing the withdrawal would increase the instability."

Sign of the devil
The person who will benefit the most is the one who has the largest private militia in place, and that person is still Muktada al-Sadr, who is in Iran studying to become a top ayatollah like the Ayatollah Khamenei, so he can be all things to the Iraqi people once he takes power and becomes another dictator for life. Hopefully, they will also fix his teeth... The US doesn't want that to happen, and there is a good chance it won't if Assad leaves Syria, meaning the Iraqi people won't stand for another dictator and would protest against an al-Sadr or al-Maliki assuming the mantle. Oh yeah, I'm sure that the desires of Israel are mixed in there somewhere, but they are mostly bystanders to these movements, and any goodwill they build up with Egypt or Libya can be negated the first time that Netanyahu or Lieberman open their mouths...

Since Syria is more important than poor old Libya in the geography of the Middle East, I'll bet most European leaders , as well as US do-gooders, are kicking themselves in the pants right now; if only they had waited, they could be invading the country they really want regime change in, instead of dealing with that crazy old coot in Libya, and his deranged sons, proving once again that the date doesn't fall far from the palm tree...

Today Ron Paul has announced forming an exploratory committee on running for president. If he can generate enough interest and get enough donations through the website, then he might be convinced to run. If not, he can pocket a nice chunk of change that doesn't have to be given back to the donors. It's how Newt Gingrich makes a lot of his income every four years, and might explain why there is an increasing number of candidates you've never heard of before.

Also making hand sign of the devil
Much has been said about Barack Obama's famous inability to make quick decisions. He waffles, explores all sides to a problem, then makes a decision when it's almost too late. To even get this far, Obama needs the advice of strong women like Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi, because that's how he was raised, with the women as the authority figures. His waffling may come from how he deals with the male politicians, they are just his competion; he is best when he is debating someone and his competitive instincts have been aroused. But, since he grew up without a father figure, he has been looking for someone to have that mentoring bond. So far, he has gravitated towards the advice of some generals from the Pentagon, and he like Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA. Look to Leon becoming the next Secretary of Defense once robert Gates retires. Anyway, this explains Obama's fascination with war strategy and his jumping into the Libyan quagmire. sending more troops into Afghanistan, and his acceptance of hiring mercenaries and accelerated use of drones in Pakistan.
