Amidst Turkey getting NATO approval to line up Patriot anti-missile systems on its border and with US officials indicating that the consequence of President Bashar Al-Assad using chemical weapons will be military intervention, the USS Eisenhower has arrived off the coast of Syria to send a clear signal that direct confrontation could be near.
The aircraft carrier, which boasts 8 fighter bomber squadrons and 8,000 sailors, airmen and Marines, sailed up to the Syrian coast yesterday during bad weather. The Eisenhower is joined by the USS Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group which carries another 2,500 Marines.
“Facing Syria now are 10,000 US fighting men, 70 fighter-bombers and at least 17 warships, including the three Iwo Jima amphibious craft, a guided missile cruiser and 10 destroyers and frigates. Four of these vessels are armed with Aegis missile interceptors,” reports DebkaFile. http://www.infowars.com/us-aircraft-carrier-arrives-off-syrian-coast/
NBC Sports broadcaster Costas stoked widespread controversy on Sunday night when he attempted to turn the tragic murder-suicide involving Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher and his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins into an argument for gun control.
Costas told O’Donnell that he was in favor of “more comprehensive gun control legislation” and tried to argue the point by commenting that 65 out of 80 Colts players admitted to owning guns.
“Even if all those guns were obtained legally, you can’t have 65 guys in their 20′s and 30′s, aggressive young men subject to impulses, without something bad happening,” said Costas.
“Give me one example of a professional athlete who by virtue of his having a gun took a dangerous situation and turned it around for the better — I can’t think of a single one — but sadly I can think of dozens where by virtue of having a gun a professional athlete has wound up in a tragic situation,” he added.
Costas failed to name any of the “dozens” of such incidents he claimed proved his point, but we were able to dig up examples of athletes using a gun for self-defense or to stop a crime taking place.
Costas couldn’t name one, and yet we were able to come up with a couple just from a quick Google search, as well as other examples where athletes would have survived attacks and murders had they been able to defend themselves.
