    Report: U.S. drones flying over Syria to monitor crackdown.


    The United States is flying unmanned reconnaissance planes over Syria to monitor the regime's escalating crackdown on dissent, U.S. defense officials told NBC television on Saturday.

    The drones are being used to gather evidence on the Syrian security forces' violence against pro-democracy protesters that can be used to "make a case for a widespread international response," the U.S.-based broadcaster quoted the unnamed officials as saying.

    The Pentagon officials stressed that the U.S. is not preparing the ground for a military intervention, but is simply collecting evidence of President Bashar Assad's crackdown on protesters.

    Quite a contrast to what Hussein Obama promissed people to win elections (like Bush)

    I know, it's horrifying. But most American Sheople just don't care. Authoritarian-Worship is all they know now. They had this same problem in Germany back in the 30's. And we know what that led to. This mass Authoritarian-Worship stuff really is very sad & frightening.

    That was back when it was all about 'GET DA BOOOOSH!' 'Hope & Change' is Bullshit. That's pretty obvious.

    NATO means never having to say you are sorry. Bill Clinton was first to recognize the value of plausible deniability when he had his Spanish socialist friend, who was commandant of NATO at the time, to order the carpet bombing of Yugoslavia to deflect attention from his peculiar sexual appetite. Barry authorized NATO to bomb Libya to pave the way for the muslem brotherhood takeover. What ever happens in Syria or Iran leftie radicals will be happy because it won't be Barry's doing if NATO done it.

    There is no 'Anti-War' Left. It's a myth. I've always said that. The Obama-Bots will do & say whatever their Dear Leader programs them to do & say. Period, end of story.

    Yes we know, and now they're even flying them here. But what if there were also foreign spy-drones flying over our Nation? I wonder what American Citizens would think about that? Or what would they think if our scientists were being routinely murdered?
