So, we have to bomb Syria to save the credibility of a President that never had any, and never seemed to care that he doesn’t?

WTH is BO thinking? All he is doing is getting between an ages old fight between Sunni and Shiite. The argument started 1400 years ago over the successor to Mohammed. Now, because he declared a “red line”, he wants to further aggravate the problem he’s created in the ME by further interference in Syria. Not one lesson from the Libyan and Egyptian fiascoes has BO learned. U.S. military officers have deep doubts about impact, wisdom of a U.S. strike on Syria

The recently retired head of the U.S. Central Command, Gen. James Mattis, said last month at a security conference that the United States has “no moral obligation to do the impossible” in Syria. “If Americans take ownership of this, this is going to be a full-throated, very, very serious war,” said Mattis, who as Centcom chief oversaw planning for a range of U.S. military responses in Syria.

The potential consequences of a U.S. strike include a retaliatory attack by the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah — which supports Assad — on Israel, as well as cyberattacks on U.S. targets and infrastructure, U.S. military officials said.

As a tactic, long used by Muslims, Assad is moving military prisoners, human shields, to sites BO has leaked to the media . Those “bright” and “brilliant” boyz in the White House are beyond stupid. Obviously their inexperience, possibly incompetence, is shining through again. All that bragging about BO and his understanding of the Muslim world was certainly overstated. If bombs fall the enemies of the US will be screaming to the heavens about “US Imperialism” and the “unarmed innocents” the US murdered. The calls to revenge the deaths of “martyrs” will put all of our embassies in danger as well as the security of the US. No good deed goes unpunished in the world of Muslims. As for arming the “rebels”, it was Al Qaeda that killed 3,000 innocent people on 911. When they finish in Syria those arms will be turned against the US and its allies. Bomb Syria and the Law of Unintended Consequences kicks in. http://weaselzippers.us/2013/08/30/report-assad-moving-prisoners-to-likely-targets-of-u-s-military-strikes-to-act-as-human-shields/

Obama was elected president in 2008 promising a new era of multilateralism and cooperation with the world. Just last year he said “unilateral” action in Syria would be “a mistake.”

“For us to take military action unilaterally, as some have suggested, or to think that somehow that there is some simple solution, I think is a mistake,” he said while taking questions from the press in March 2012.

What do you think about this mess BO plans on creating?

  2. This is so miserable and embarrassing, it truly is. In this internet age, we all have friends throughout the globe. So many times I’ve heard in the past week, “It’s not the American people, it’s the government.” Living so close to Hamilton, Ohio allows me the freedom to feel that the American People really didn’t vote for 0, but it’s difficult to explain to people outside of the circus that America has become that we genuinely DIDN’T vote for this guy.

  3. Civil Wars are messy, during the US Civil War 620,000 were lost on the battlefield, civilian deaths not included.
    There are no ‘good’ sides in Syria.

  4. Awwww…..BO’s miffed at the Pentagon….their ‘leaks’ are not as cool as his….

  7. “Let Allah sort it out”….yes, indeed

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is condemning potential American military action in Syria, charging it would be President Obama “saving political face” and saying, “Let Allah sort it out.”

    “So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?” Palin wrote in a Facebook message to her followers on Friday, before the president said Saturday that he would seek Congressional approval.

    “Bottom line is that this is about President Obama saving political face because of his ‘red line’ promise regarding chemical weapons,” she added.

    At the top of the Facebook post, Palin wrote: “LET ALLAH SORT IT OUT.”

  8. Worse Preezy evah!!! Destroy US credibility to massage his narcissistic ego…..
    Read it all….
    [“Policy-makers and commentators who have insisted that we can trust Obama to keep his pledge to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons have based their view on an argument that now lies in tatters. They insisted that by pledging to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power, Obama staked his reputation on acting competently to prevent Iran from getting the bomb. To avoid losing face, they said, Obama will keep his pledge.

    Obama’s behavior on Syria has rendered this position indefensible. Obama is perfectly content with shooting a couple of pot shots at empty government installations. As far as he is concerned, the conduct of air strikes in Syria is not about Syria, or Iran. They are not the target audience of the strikes. The target audience for US air strikes in Syria is the disengaged, uninformed American public.

    Obama believes he can prove his moral and strategic bonafides to the public by declaring his outrage at Syrian barbarism and then launching a few cruise missiles from an aircraft carrier. The computer graphics on the television news will complete the task for him.

    The New York Times claimed on Thursday that the administration’s case for striking Syria would not be the “political theater” that characterized the Bush administration’s case for waging war in Iraq. But at least the Bush administration’s political theater ended with the invasion. In Obama’s case, the case for war and the war itself are all political theater.

    While for a few days the bread and circuses of the planned strategically useless raid will increase newspaper circulation and raise viewer ratings of network news, it will cause grievous harm to US national interests. As far as US enemies are concerned, the US is an empty suit.

    And as far as America’s allies are concerned, the only way to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power is to operate without the knowledge of the United States.”]
