Syria: A Theraputic Strike?

In 2007 then Senator Obam said “The president does not have the power under the constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual imminent threat to the nation” in response to Bush’s decision to go into Iraq. Sen. Joe Biden echoed that sentiment that same year saying he would call for a president’s impeachment if that were to happen. Therefore if we are to go by their words what they are doing is unconstitutional.
The left criticized Bush to no end for going into Iraq and Afghanistan. Now it is the right who is criticizing the left and Obama for Syria. The fighting in Syria has been going on for 30 months with 100,000 dead. If they were so interested in helping out they should have gone in then and not now. Maybe more lives might have been saved. Obama wants UN approval to have strikes in Syria when lawmakers are saying he should be going to congress first as they have the power to declare war. Bush went to congress first for Iraq and got approval, but then again since when does Obama go by the constitution anyway.
The problem with Syria will be exactly like Egypt where we helped push out a pro-American leader with Mubarek who at least honored the peace with Isreal and replaced him with Morsi and the muslim brotherhood. If they overthrow Assad, a radical muslim leadership will no doubt take over and our alley in Isreal will be at greater risk of being annihilated. By supporting the rebels we are supporting Al Queda who make up seven out of ten factions of the rebels. Our air force would become their air force. Obama said any attack would only last hours and not days but by helping the rebels Obama will be helping Al Queda get in power there. By bombing Syria Obama can say he held up his end of the threat. Who’s side is he on anyway? He didn’t help our ambassador and embassy people in Benghazi when they called for help and the muslims took over and now he will be helping Al Queda. Never forget his famous words “I will support the muslims if the winds take a different direction” and that’s just what he is doing. He’s supporting radical muslims. Because of his weak leadership, our allies don’t trust us and enemies don’t fear us. China, Japan and Great Britain as well as others are looking on him as irrelevant.
John Kerry gave a public speech condemning the gassing of civilians and in great detail calling what is going on in Syria “a moral obscenity.” If you listen to it and listen to his anti-Vietnam speech before congress in 1968 they are eerily similar.
It is not sure who really used gas the rebels or Assad. Assad says the rebels are using it because why would he use gas where his troops are and we say it is Assad doing it.

“Failure awaits the United States as in all previous wars it has unleashed, starting with Vietnam and up to the present day,” the Syrian President told the pro-Kremlin Izvestia newspaper in an interview published on Monday, which the Russian daily said was conducted in Damascus.

Mr Assad said Syrian government forces had been close to the area, in suburbs of Damascus, where rebel forces accused his troops of firing poison gas projectiles last week, and there was no clear front line there.

“Would any state use chemical or any other weapons of mass destruction in a place where its own forces are concentrated? That would go against elementary logic,” Mr Assad told Izvestia. “So, accusations of this kind are entirely political and the reason for them is the government forces’ series of victories over the terrorists,” he said, referring to rebels fighting in the two-year-old civil war.

During the Iraq war I remember reading that Saddam shipped his WMD’s out to Syria during and before the war which included nerve gas. This is where Assad is getting it from. As a quote from a responder to an article I saw said, “From what I see, the events of the world are simply happening too fast for Mr. Obama to cope. Add to that his naive ideological outlook, and we are seeing a foreign policy train wreck in process.” We need strength in leadership where we have none now.
