Obama is down to a 35% approval rating in the polls. The world no longer hates us, they are now laughing at us so what’s a weak president to do? Come up with a war strategy only this time it’s not working. People from both sides liberals and conservatives are opposed to us getting involved. Over 70% of all liberals, Conservatives and Indepedents COMBINED are against this idiot’s stance on bombing Syria. He blames Syria for gassing 1,400 civilians as an excuse for us to go in. But he says we are not putting boots on the ground, this will only the a limited war lasting a few days and this is not about regime change. So why bother going in at all?
It’s interesting to note that all the people who opposed Bush in Iraq are now for Obama in Syria. By all the people I mean the main outspoken protestors like Obama, Pelosi and Kerry. We went into Iraq after 9/11. Saddam had weapons of mass destruction he cleverly kept shifting around so the inspectors couldn’t find them and eventually shipped them all to Syria. Saddam gassed 5000 people in one day and killed over a million of his own people and they spoke out against us being there, but Assad supposedly gassing ,and there is no real proof he did, 1,400 people is enough to warrant us getting involved. What hypocrisy!!!!
“I just don’t agree that a majority are al-Qaeda and the bad guys” Kerry’s own words. Lord help us, this is what we now have leading our country. Obama and this complete idiot. Maybe he should watch Glen Becks video of a Muslim tearing out the heart of a man and then eating it. These are the people in Syria that these two complete idiots want to give arms to. Folks we are in trouble!
It appears that the Obama Administration has been arming Al Qaeda and other radical Islamist terrorist since the beginning of the Arab Spring. In fact, each day brings us closer to identifying the White House as the primary source for much of what is being fronted as the Arab Spring.
Recent revelations from Egyptian and other credible sources are painting a not so pleasant picture of a conspiracy between the White House and prominent members of the Muslim Brotherhood to destabilize several moderate secular Arab States in the name of Democracy. Obama supported overthrowing Mubarek who at least kept the peace with Isreal and stability in the region in favor of Morsi who was with the muslim brotherhood and favored sharia law for Egypt and annihilating Isreal until the military overthrew him much to Obama’s chagrin. The same was with Quadaffi. He was a brutal dictator but was supplying us with useful information until he was overthrown. Now Obama is going after Assad. Obama has even placed radical muslim brotherhood members in his administration.
It appears that the Obama regime has been arming radical elements of Islam and his Muslim Brotherhood friends, since the inception of the Arab Spring in Egypt and Libya. Stock piles of sophisticated weapons are arriving in Syria from what clearly were Libyan sources and there is now evidence of a Bengahzi connection and arms to Syrian rebels. All of which are illegal acts of war and violations to both US and International law.
As Sara Palin so eloquently put it: “President Obama wants America involved in Syria’s civil war pitting the antagonistic Assad regime against equally antagonistic Al Qaeda affiliated rebels. But he’s not quite sure which side is doing what, what the ultimate end game is, or even whose side we should be on. Haven’t we learned? WAGs (wild assed guesses) don’t work in war. “
“As I said before, if we are dangerously uncertain of the outcome and are led into war by a Commander-in-chief who can’t recognize that this conflict is pitting Islamic extremists against an authoritarian regime with both sides shouting “Allah Akbar” at each other, then let Allah sort it out.”
Doug Patton on GOPUSA site had this to say “Of course, in Obama’s case, it is not a matter of personal scandal like it was for Clinton. By telling the world a year ago that he was drawing a red line in the hot desert sands of Syria — that red line being the use of chemical weapons — he created the debacle that currently threatens to engulf the Middle East. He blustered at the time that if the regime of Bashar al-Assad crosses that red line, there will be a price to pay. No one yet knows what that price will be, but from the current discussion, it appears that it will involve the destruction of at least three camels, four sheep, a half-dozen goats and an abandoned aspirin factory. That oughta show ‘em!
What it will do, in all likelihood, is unify the Islamic crazies in the Middle East and turn Assad into a regional hero, emboldening him to attack Israel secure in the knowledge that the United States has no stomach for a wider war.
Yet there was the ever-arrogant Barack Obama, standing at the podium in Stockholm on Wednesday, embarrassing himself yet again (and, by extension, the fools who elected him) by announcing in response to a reporter’s question about his crumbling credibility, “I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line.”
Obama is a symbol of much of today’s generation, which accepts no responsibility for anything. Therefore, when something goes wrong among his cockamamie plans, it must be someone else’s fault. Usually, of course, it would be George Bush’s fault, but even Obama couldn’t bring himself to tell that one again, not in this case. No, this time it’s the whole world’s fault. And Congress. And America. It’s American credibility that will suffer, he told the world, not his. Unbelievable. “
Meanwhile John (I voted for the 87 billion before I voted against it) Kerry says that the rebels are moderate muslims. Moderate muslims? Hasn’t he seen the video of one of the rebels eating the heart and liver of a Syrian soldier he just killed or the video of rebels shooting seven captured soldiers in the back of the head? It’s really outlandish that John (I served in Vietnam) Kerry would support us going into Syria since he is the one who compared American troops to Ghengis Khan in his Vietnam hearings and said American troops were terrorizing women and children in the dead of night in Iraq. Now when it’s convenient for his side he supports us going into Syria. First it was to be a limited war, then no boots on the ground, now he’s saying 73,000 troops will be needed to remove all the gas weapons there. Kerry was also supporting Assad recently and had dinner with him. Nancy Pelosi also stuck up for Assad. Now all of a sudden he’s our enemy just to satisfy their agenda mainly to make Obama look strong while he supports radical muslim regimes.
Rush Limbaugh recently theorized that the Syrian rebels gassed their own people and blamed it on Assad so we’d step in, overthrow Assad since they can’t do it themselves and the they’d be in charge. Being the way things are going over there and considering who Obama is supporting it sounds plausible to me.
