Like Vladimir Putin, the Answer Coalition — a front group for a Trotskyist split known as the Workers World Party — has argued that the chemical warfare used in Syria came from rebel forces, not from Bashar al-Assad: “It seems clear that the Assad regime did not carry out this chemical attack,” said WWP spokesman Caleb Maupin.

Have no doubt about the morality of Ramsey Clark. Ian Williams nails it:

In Grenada he went to advise Bernard Coard, the murderer of Prime Minister Maurice Bishop. Other clients include Radovan Karadzic, the indicted Bosnian Serbian war criminal whom he defended in a New York civil suit brought by Bosnian rape victims, and the Rwandan pastor who is accused of telling Tutsis to hide in his church and then summoning Hutus to massacre them, and then leading killing squads.

All this is done in the name of anti-imperialism, and a desire to build the perfect utopian socialist society. Clark’s absurdity is more notable because of the monsters he chooses to support, but his actions define the very nature of the revolutionary socialist perspective: all is justifiable when done on behalf of the desire to create the perfect society, in which all conflict ends and people live in peace and harmony. As they say, “you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.”

Conservatives know that the human condition is flawed, that there can be no perfect society built by men according to schemes dreamed up from the likes of Karl Marx and the other “scientific socialists.” The only religion Clark likes — you guessed it — is Islam. As he puts it: “[Islam] is probably the most compelling spiritual and moral force on earth today.”

Outside, of course, of Marxism-Leninism, the philosophy of the Workers World Party.

Whenever atrocities and murders are waged by self-proclaimed warriors for “the people,” be they undertaken by communists or radical Islamists, you can be sure Ramsey Clark and his fellow defenders of the masses will come to their defense.

Hey Ron - on questions of facts only

You wrote about Diana West's book - although you would say you wrote about Diana West - that "...show that she even fails to understand the nature of unrefined uranium the Soviets actually received under Lend-Lease, which was not strategic in terms of making an atomic weapon."

Are you serious? I hope you are lying for if you mean it then you are either stupid or too impressionable - and you aren't stupid.

The Uranium sent to the Soviet Union was one step away from that refinement needed to be sufficiently refined to produce an atomic weapon where the actual yield would approach higher than 80% of its potential yield - the difference in percentage yields being the degree of refinement.

But the Uranium sent was useable to make lower yield detonations. IN fact the amounts sent were close to half of our reserves of uranium refined even to that degree.

And we know, don;t we, that Stalin wasn't fastidious or a perfectionist in any manner at all - don't we.

"To put it another way, they may think Clark is cuckoo ... ... As for McKinney, she supported Muamaar Gaddafi during the Obama administration’s actions to topple his regime, and appeared on Libyan state TV in defense of the ruler."

Clark and McKinney are a la carte cuckoo. Obama, Kerry/Hillary, McCain and Graham are the full meal deal cuckoo. Things are now even worse in Libya (On to Syria !!) and we got 4 dead Americans out of the Benghazi result of it. It would have been aroud thirty but for the self-sacrificing, courageous two former Navy Seals the graves and families of which the democrats in Congress just spit on.

And Obama, Kerry, McCain, Graham and others support the blood thirsty, Christian killing rapist shariah jihadi terrorists ... I'm sorry as I am suppose to say "freedom fighters" or at least "rebels" ... and want to further arm them. Which is worse?

Russian Patriarch to Obama: Syria’s Christians Nearing ‘Extermination’
The leader of Russia's 150 million Orthodox Christians begs the president not to give aid to Syrian jihadis.

"Syria: Atrocities against Christians by the U.S.-backed jihadis know no bounds — such as the recent gang rape and slaughter of a 15-year-old Christian girl by the U.S.-supported “freedom fighters.” And now in Ma‘loula, Christians are being forced to choose between converting to Islam or dying and other atrocities."

64 yrs old and have been a conservative for most of my life. Was in the military for 20yrs and did Vietnam x3. BUT I am surprised I am backing Assad. The very idea of arming Muslim Rebels against a dictator yes , but a Dictator that protects Christians and allows all forms of religion openly. Why give Guns and Missiles to the people that want to kill you , unless they give something in return. I now believe , more than ever that Obama is a Muslim and wants to help Islam spread throughout the world. The Dems helping him are traitors to their country. Sorry America , you voted them in.

Re: "a group of young people who climbed atop Mount Qasioun and dared U.S. bombs to target them."

By astonishing non-coincidence:
Mount Qasioun hosts a major Syrian military base.
It overlooks the presidential palace.
If you plot the "back azimuths" of the weapon trajectories the UN inspectors reported for the chemical rocket attacks, here is where they meet.

Funny how "human shields" don't show up when the dictator is the one doing the bombing.

Ah, Ramsey Clark! Is he still alive? He was moonbatty before moonbatty was cool.

Decades ago I described him as "a lot like William Kunstler, if Kunstler were a blithering idiot."

Flagra Solaris, Yes, it would be interesting to see us fight 7th Century ideologues but these ideologues are armed with 21st century weapons. That plus I think there is about a billion of them. I don't see how there could be a Crusade on that many.

That being said, this war in Syria is like a game with two teams you don't like. It doesn't matter which one wins. Now if there was a way for the Christians and the few moderate Muslims to back off, regroup, train and then when the Assad side and the Al Quada side finish killing each other then they could come in and mop up.

Ramsey is still around making an ass of himself? McKinny serendipitously ended up on the right side in the Libya fiasco, and at least tactically on the right side in this fiasco. That said, there seems to be blurred lines and confusion on all sides.
Some leftist support Assad, apparently because he is a client of the former USSR led by a former KGB strongman - an avowed enemy of the US. Other leftists support al Qaeda, a Muslim terrorist organization - also an enemy of the US and the world. Both of the factions championed by the respective leftist groups have similar tyrannical goals; Assad locally and al Qaeda globally.
Meanwhile, Neo-cons,the progressives of the “right”, support the “rebels” - which is tacit support for al-Qaeda. The bulk of conservatives say stay out of it. There are no good guys and no immediate or over-riding US interests at stake - and nothing we can do but make matters worse.
Unfortunately the Goober In Charge opened his mindless mouth and put his “credibility” on the line. Putin reeled in the line and has offered the US a Hobson’s choice. The Goober is out of horses - and so are we.

They positioned themselves in areas they thought likely to be targeted by bombs.

I really don't need any further evidence that leftists are insane, but they keep on providing it anyway. I wonder what the likes of Assad really think about such absurd fans. If they're not careful they might kill him with laughter even before the first bomb drops. Not that I'm in favor of replacing this butcher with the even worse murderers of the MoBros and AQ, but there's a long way between calculating that he is the least of two evils and actually defending this criminal with your very life just because your father doesn't like him.

I thought the leftist's patron saint, our resident in chief, wanted to lob a couple of cruise missiles in Assad's lap. Hmmmm.... a change in leftist strategy?
