Update: As the United States moves in intervene militarily in Syria yet again, we can take another look at the past case for intervention; the evidence concerning the 2013 gas attacks which is now pointed to as a confirmed fact that Mr. Assad had ordered the use of chemical weapons.
It is not just a lie, it is an OBVIOUS lie.
Does anybody really know if Basher Assad used Sarin gas on what is described as “his own” people whatever that means? I take it to mean his Enemies.
But any excuse will serve a Tyrant. I read that in an Aesop fable somewhere and it seems to fit very well in this instance.
Should we take French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabious’ super- ambiguous statement saying “Sarin gas was used in Syria” as a reason to enter the fray against Assad? What if it turns out that the rebel faction actually used the gas? Now wouldn’t THAT be awkward? I don’t even want to go into where the gas came from if, indeed, it was there in the first place.
And where is the UN at? Aren't they going to "condemn" this alleged behavior for us?
But at any rate, here we are once again poised for yet another intervention in yet another civil war in yet another Middle East nation but all of a sudden the Obama Regime is worried about how it’s going to look THIS time?
So here is the old “Weapons of Mass Destruction” construct re-worked this time with a Red Line to be crossed and rolled out for another Big-Lie-Go-Round. This is the part of the current syndicate that’s been running this country that can be said to be truly transparent.
But our shadowy president and his shadowy henchmen that pass for advisors and cabinet secretaries are once again blindly feeling down the short sighted trail of foreign relations. What on earth do they hope to accomplish other than more instability, fear of the future and pain?
Libya worked out real well for Obama already didn’t it? Well here comes Syria!
So what can an out of control government leading the biggest economy in the world do? Should we go back to the “Death From Above” campaign we’re so good at or should we get serious this time and put boots on the ground?
What could possibly go wrong with that?
We should most likely see both Russia and Iran going all-in on Syria and really start sending in the BIG STUFF along with trainers, support staff and mercenary troops. Maybe then France and England get in on the act and Whoopee, we'll really be warring our way to prosperity won't we?
Short supply lines, access to willing combatants and dwindling war chests back home should make the going difficult for the U.S. Imperialist Machine in Syria. There is no economic engine driving this or any of the other military expenditures the Obama presidency has been involved in. It's all just IOUs at this point since none of the money spent has been earned yet.
If we as a nation actually had a functioning Congress, Obama wouldn’t have gotten his Libyan Adventure off the ground never mind starting this one. The Obama Regime was in clear violation of the War Powers Act in regards to Libya but nobody can do anything to stop a president from going to war anymore.
All we can do is now is watch.
