A feminist milestone: Our male President has been pulled into war by 3 women.

It's the opposite of the Code Pink idea that women bring the peace. How long have I heard this feminist plaint: If only women had the power, we would have peace, not phallocratic war.

But no:
In a Paris hotel room on Monday night, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton... changed course, forming an unlikely alliance with a handful of top administration aides who had been arguing for intervention.

Within hours, Mrs. Clinton and the aides had convinced Mr. Obama that the United States had to act...

... Mrs. Clinton joined Samantha Power, a senior aide at the National Security Council, and Susan Rice, Mr. Obama’s ambassador to the United Nations, who had been pressing the case for military action, according to senior administration officials speaking only on condition of anonymity. Ms. Power is a former journalist and human rights advocate; Ms. Rice was an Africa adviser to President Clinton when the United States failed to intervene to stop the Rwanda genocide, which Mr. Clinton has called his biggest regret.

Now, the three women were pushing for American intervention....

To ally with Power and Rice, Clinton had to make "an unusual break with Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates, who, along with the national security adviser, Thomas E. Donilon, and the counterterrorism chief, John O. Brennan, had urged caution." Oh, timid men. Step aside! Yield to the boldness of women.

So... man, the power.

Should you acquire a firearm, that is your business. There is absolutely no need to share such information with any than those in law enforcement when a permit is required, and whomever you shares living quarters with you. Obviously, those you buy the weapon from, and ammunition, as well as those you train with and where you practice, they will know. But discretion is the better part of valor.

Gary, you're right, but in CF's case, silence is tantamount to acquiescense. It's not always that dramatic, but because anti-semitism is my particular bugbear, I make an exception and engage.

I think this is B.S. These Middle East coups are all annex by George Soros. According to Lame Cherry, Soros donated 100 million to "Human Rights Watch" which negotiated the release of 200 Libyan anarchists I'n March. These are the "rebel forces." As usual , Soros us simply bag man for the European Rothshild cartel that wants to control Mideast oil.
