Russian Strikes Again Expose US Disarray

So embarrassing does anyone in our government have a clue??? Looks like Obama is completely clueless.

New York (AFP) – Russia’s dramatic entry Wednesday into the Syrian war put the United States on the back foot once again and left Washington struggling to regain the military and diplomatic initiative.

As US Secretary of State John Kerry was in New York trying to coordinate with his Kremlin opposite number Sergei Lavrov, a Russian officer contacted the US embassy in Baghdad.

His message was simple: Russian jets are about to launch air strikes in Syria, please stay out of their way.

Kerry quickly protested to Lavrov that this was not in the spirit of Moscow’s promise to agree a “de-confliction” mechanism to ensure Russian flights do not interfere with US-led operations.

But the strikes were already underway, potentially altering the balance of power in Syria back in favor of Bashar al-Assad‘s regime, and Washington was looking at a fait accompli.

A Year

A year

Well, I have been on Word Press a year. So much has happened. I started it just as a lark and a dare. Had a stalker troll that decided it was a good idea to attack myself and my friends on Word Press so I decided to check it out. Here we are a year later.two trolls

The troll and her friend have wandered off thankfully leaving me to enjoy all of you. I rediscovered my love of poetry and shared it with a few friends that became 535 followers. That is amazing. Along the way, there were wonderful fellow bloggers I found and now enjoy immensely.

The moral of this story is that if you keep true to yourself and just enjoy what you are doing you come out ahead at the end.

Thank you all my followers and yes you too my stalker troll without you I may never have discovered this side of me. Here’s to another year!!

The Fool

fool

She found out she was a fool

After being evil and cruel.

She found the truth about her master

Dragged out and pushed into disaster.

Then abandoned left just like that.

Left her there flat.

Does she know about her man?

About the other ones plan?

Ah probably not

She forgot

What evil is done comes back to haunt

The past to mock and taunt

Til there is nothing left

But her bereft

And alone.

The Empty Bed

empty-bed

Empty and alone she cries

Reaching out in the dark

Alone and lonely she lies.

Sheets and room so stark.

He is gone never coming back

Disappeared from her life

The pain and it’s attack

From no longer being wife.

The past comes to visit late

Pokes its boney finger

To whisper and berate

Haunt and linger.

In the daylight, she is fine

Can push away the dark

But at night even with her wine

It is bitter, empty and stark.

Was it her hateful words that did it?

Or her cold heart

Doesn’t matter now can’t rid it

Can’t make it go or start.

Leaves her there in the cold

Where warmth was instead

She spins and is rolled

into her empty bed.

Free Speech

free Speech

One of the most precious gifts of a Democracy is free speech. It is also one of the most often misused. Spreading lies and hate isn’t free speech it is hatred. It also lessens the value of free speech. In this political season on both sides, I see the worst drivel and defamatory statements. Be very careful about what you repost or post yourself. If you share defamatory lies then whatever else you say will be tainted with those lies.

Truth has a way of surfacing even when it has been pushed down by the filth and sewage of hideous, defamatory and evil lies. Time is the angel of truth and when it surfaces it explodes and takes down those that spread that kind of hate.

So be true to the truth don’t belittle and lessen such a precious commodity as free speaking. You will be found out eventually. Just a fact of life.
