Kalima as I was shutting down for the night I saw this on twitter:

Thousands of US troops arrive near Syrian shore on USS Eisenhower

It’s from Russia Today and I haven’t seen it elsewhere. This could be big and I was just giving you a heads up on your MB.

US Senate vote pushes for Pentagon military action in Syria

The US Senate has voted nearly unanimously to assess military options to cripple the air force of Syrian President Assad. Lawmakers said the action aims to stop the killing of civilians, but critics claim it may herald a Libya-style no-fly zone.

Ninety-two Senators voted to move forward with a Pentagon report on possible military options in Syria, with six opposing the legislation.

The bill in question gives US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta 90 days in which to carry out the study and report back to the Senate with the findings, aimed at “advancing the goals of President Obama of stopping the killing of civilians in Syria and creating conditions for a transition to a democratic, pluralistic, political system in Syria.”

Cant we go without war for 6 bloody months?
