  •  Evening Joe. Good lineup. (8+ / 0-)

    Sparks everywhere eh.  Could end up being the summer of rage many predicted a couple years ago.   And Obama and our government want to add to the fire by providing more arms to the Syrian rebels.  A lot of pressure on Obama now to keep things going for the oligarchy and not look like a wuss on Syria and with Iran, Russia and China. Shit is getting pretty deep.

      this could indeed be a turning point summer.  it looks like obama is in deep poop with the world community over his spying program.  to some extent, for the other governments involve the challenge will be to hide the extent to which they cooperated with this program while expressing the very real anger and outrage of their people.  this looks to be the sort of scandal that could make a lot of heads of state very uncomfortable or perhaps even finding another line of work.

      hopefully obama will be kept too busy putting out fires to get us too deeply involved in another war, though i wouldn't bet on it.  surely the plans have been on the drawing board for years and obama's neocon/neoliberal cheering section is looking at their calendars and screaming that the next war is overdue.
