Can’t John McCain see his own quest for revenge? 2

John McCain shocked this blogger when he went on Fox and candidly told the nation the real reason why Republicans are unfairly withholding confirmation of Chuck Hagel as Secretary of  Defense:  Revenge! Pure and naked!  Yesterday, McCain appeared on NBC’sMeet the Press.”  Moderator, David Gregory, played video of McCain’s revenge admission…and the senator refused to own up to his statement and reverted to a sane politically correct response.  Did McCain lose his balls or does he not realize that the public follows every word of his frequent appearances on TV?  John, we know what you said.  You cannot now disavow your quest for revenge against your alleged friend, Chuck Hagel, and, against the entire Democratic Party for the way past Republicans were treated in confirmation hearings, e.g., John Bolton.  In some instances like this a doctor is called in to adjust the patient’s medication.  Simply looking into his mirror does not work for Senator John McCain. Once again our war hero is acting badly.  —GoodOleWoody

“Kerry and Obama on same page on Syria?”



By Elise Labott


Secretary of State John Kerry said Wednesday he had some ideas on how to change Syrian President Bashar al-Assad‘s thinking about remaining in power, which he hopes will persuade the embattled leader to negotiate with the opposition on an end to the violence.


“We need to address the question of President Assad’s calculation currently. I believe there are additional things that can be done to change his current perception,” Kerry told reporters after meeting with Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh, adding: “I’ve got a good sense of what I think we might propose.”


Kerry didn’t elaborate, but said he planned to discuss the ideas during his first official overseas trip. He is expected to visit European and Mideast capitals later this month, although the trip has not yet been announced


But his stated desire to find a new approach toward Syria belies a reluctance from the White House to become more actively involved. The United States has limited its support to humanitarian aid and nonlethal aid to the opposition, ruling out military intervention and arguing that supplying weapons to the rebels would only further militarize the conflict and risk arms ending up in the hands of extremists.

“Q&A: North Korea finally conducts nuclear test, what now?”

Hong Kong (CNN) — North Korea has conducted an underground nuclear test using more sophisticated technology than its previous two attempts, drawing widespread international condemnation.

It’s the first test carried out under the secretive nation’s young leader Kim Jong Un and threatens to undermine an already fragile security situation in the region.

How worried should we be about North Korea’s nuclear test?

It’s worrying but does this mean they can drop a nuclear weapon on Los Angeles? Absolutely not. The notion that they are going to target the U.S. is way off the mark.

Any time the North Koreans stage a test, it significantly improves their nuclear capabilities. This comes after they staged a rocket launch that was successful, a long range rocket which appears to have put a satellite into orbit. What they need to achieve to have the weapon they want is the capability to miniaturize a warhead and put it on a rocket. This test isn’t going to do that in and of itself, but it is a significant step forward.  FULL  ARTICLE
