  1. It is either true and a godsend for Obama or manufactured to get him out his current fiasco.

    Obama’s coalition of the willing totaled France and Turkey, just 2. It was an embarrassment.

    This will allow Obama to not strike Syria and slink off under a rock until the complicit media rehabilitates their man or “The One” as Oprah says it.

    George Bush built a bigger coalition (24 allies) and had more cause to topple Sadam than Obama has to topple Assad. Yes Assad was an @sshole that supported Al Qaeda in the last 10 years in Iraq. Yes he supported Hezbollah and provided them support since 1979. but if it was not with sending troop since 1979 then it isn’t now. Especially now. I’ll have to remove the dagger between my shoulder blades where people like Cindy Sheehan, Code Stink and the anti-war put it.–_Iraq#Countries_that_deployed_troops_to_Iraq

    It would be worth it if we went into Syria, found the WMDS that Russia helped ship from Iraq to Syria prior to the Iraq war in 2003. It the left were to say we were wrong, I would say it is fine … water under the bridge. but as it is the left will not do that

    Besides this is how you make countries. Armenia was made in such a way. It has be posited that ancient Van (proto Armenia) was created out of various tribes when the Assyrians would strike north and pillage year after year. So the tribes got together and formed a kingdom.

    Likewise we could get involved in Syria when our enemies Sunni and Shia are doing a great job of killing one another. Why get in the middle? As vengeful and Islamic as Obama is, if we had troops on the ground he would promulgate ROE that would say if you see a Christian congregation attacked, Church burned or Kurds being massacred don’t engage the attackers. So far all of Obama’s sturm and drang has been how the Muslim Brotherhood should be in charge of Syria because Sunnis make up the bulk of Syria. He has not a word for any religious minority Muslim or non-Muslim in Syria.

    by entering Syria after showing weakness in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt and worldwide, it would just encourage all of them to band together to attack Israel, from a Caliphate and attack the U.S.

    Like Churchill said “don’t get in the middle.” (paraphrase)

  2. Russia’s Vladimir Putin challenges US on Syria claims (BBC/video, Aug 31, 2013)
    “Russian President Vladimir Putin has challenged the US to present to the UN evidence that Syria was responsible for chemical weapons attacks.

    Mr Putin said it would be “utter rubbish” for Syria’s government to provoke opponents with such attacks when it was in a position of strength.

    US President Barack Obama has said he is considering military action against Syria based on intelligence reports.”

  3. You know, when I see John Kerry on TV talking about the way things are in Syria, I am reminded of the previous Secretary of State and what a shameless little liar she turned out to be, and how easily she lied to the world. Why would anybody believe a single word that came out of a US Secretary of State’s mouth? The Obama administration obviously believes that lying to the American people is somehow OK…
