Time to Panic

For your consideration.
At the rate the hot spots around the world are heating up, we may not make it to December 21st.
Who needs global warming.
And another article posted on the same blog reports that Assad is getting ready to flee – which will leave the stuff in the hands of jihadists. The last line of the blogger’s comments: “having chemical weapons in the hands of an Al Qaeda affiliate in Syria is a sufficient reason for all of us to panic.”
And from http://www.foxnews.com/world/2012/12/05/syria-mixes-chemical-weapons-into-bombs“Syrian forces have mixed chemical weapons and loaded them into bombs in preparation for possible use on President Bashar Assad's own people, Fox News confirms.”
Now our valiant leaders are starting to talk about military intervention – with what, I wonder: http://nation.time.com/2012/12/05/is-the-fleet-steaming-forwardor-backward/ and http://www.commentarymagazine.com/2012/12/05/sequestrations-defense-cuts-loom/#more-812969. The warnewsupdate blogger in linking to Max Boot’s short article wrote:
”My Comment: In all of my years of following US politics and news .... I have never seen anything like this. The whole world is watching the Commander in Chief of a superpower play politics with his defense budget .... an astoundingly wrong impression to give to a world filled with many bad actors on the scene. But such is the state of politics in the U.S. today .... and as I always tell my friends around the world who want to know what is my take on what is happening .... elections have consequences, and the American public have decided that their entitlement programs and uncontrollable spending is far more important than defense budgets and having rich entrepreneurs .... and we better get use to it. On a side note .... and this is what makes me realize how destructive Washington has been .... even if sequestration does kick in .... the U.S. deficit will still continue to climb by about $1 trillion a year. And if interest rates climb .... as they will .... this debt load will accelerate even quicker.”
