      Thugs have been masquerading as Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) workers, knocking on doors in the dead of night. But locals say the real workers have been nowhere in sight, causing at least one elected official
      There were many people reporting and live blogging about the roving bands of thugs and the police nowhere to be found.

        They expected it to look like Syria, so it was a real letdown for them when they saw that most peoples' security needs could have been met with a .38 revolver.

            •  Yeah, I keep forgetting that funding terrorists (0+ / 0-)

              there to overthrow their government isn't invading per se but it's the first step in doing so.

              Just like Egypt, Mali, Libya and the covert war in Iran.

                Booting the Assad's out of power is not a bad idea, IMHO. They've been abusing their citizens for many years.

                  live there do it?  Are we on some "mission from G.O.D." to free the world of tyranny only to install our very own oppressive regimes?

                  Egypt.

                  Iran, after 1953.

                  South America.

                  Afghanistan and Iraq where the genocides are all but done now, wait "sectarian violence" that killed hundreds of thousands.

                  Besides didn't we learn anything in the Iran-Contra scandal?  President goes directly against Congress and arms the terrorists.

                  I'm seeing no difference today.  Hell, If I could afford Dish Network, I'd pay for Al-Jezeera News Channel but then I'd be "aiding and abetting known terrorists" to be locked away for decades.

                    and we should leave them alone to form their own government once it's done. If they ask for help fine, if not let 'em be.
