Hearing Demonstrates USA Willingness to Risk War With Russia

There really can't be any doubt that war with Russia is on the horizon. As the article below makes clear, the Congressional testimony of Ash(es to ashes) Carter and Joint Chiefs Chair Dunford suggests they're willing to risk it all to initiate regime change in Syria - even though the reason Assad must go have never been disclosed by Obomba or his administration hacks. (To me, the reason for the "Assad Must Go" meme is clear: to hurt Russia's ability to defend itself and hurt it's economy).

I mean - get this from the link:

"The latest proposal by Secretary of State John Kerry involves grounding only Syrian and Russian airplanes, Carter told Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-New Hampshire).

'There can be no question of grounding US aircraft' over Syria, he said, adding that US jets conduct their strikes 'with exceptional precision" that no other country can match.'

Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Mississippi) asked about what it would take for the US to impose a no-fly zone over Syria, using the phrase 'control the airspace.'

'Right now" for us to control all of the airspace in Syria would require us to go to war against Syria and Russia,' Dunford replied, drawing a rebuke from committee chairman John McCain (R-Arizona), who argued a no-fly zone was possible without war."

McCain must be taking some strange meds to argue that a no-fly zone over Syria can be enforced against the Syrians and Russians "without war." But the most interesting statement is that our armed forces conduct "strikes with exceptional precision." So does that fly in the face of the claim by the USA that its air force MISTAKENLY launched the attacks against the Syrian army that killed and maimed 200 of their soldiers and scuttled a hard won negotiated ceasefire between Russia and the USA? And of course no one in Congress asked this obvious question.

I fear for the world should Hillary accede to the throne. The warlords appear ready to press the button and launch another war to end all wars.
