Early Monday morning, reports came out about an ongoing shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. that has seen at least ten shot, with four reported killed.
Adding insult to injury, Buzzfeed said one Russian official appears to be gloating over the shooting, mocking American exceptionalism.
And so the Syrian ‘will we-or-won’t we’ disarmament game continues as al-Assad is now adding demands of his own…well actually demands in Russia’s best interest as Syria’s foreign policy is now what Russia says Syria’s foreign policy is.
While Vladimir Putin has proven to be one strong opponent as he eats up and spits out our wimp of a president, now Bashar al-Assad is flexing his muscle. On Russian television a few days ago, using Obama’s own ‘red lines’ against him, al-Assad stated that Syria giving up its chemical weapons is because of Putin’s plan NOT because of Obama’s threat of American military action. And he added for good measure that Obama must promise NOT to arm rebel forces or he will NOT turn anything over. And here’s the kicker thrown into the mix…al-Assad has now also demanded that Israel surrender its nuclear arsenal if any permanent deal is to go forward.
Yeah…like that will ever happen as Israel surrendering its weapons…while surrounded by enemies determined to wipe them off the map…is paramount to Israel giving them the go-ahead to do so.
John Kerry was on Capitol Hill today to demand a resolution to give Nobel Peace Prize winner, Barack Obama the right to invade a sovereign country. He was met with questions about Benghazi that made Kerry very angry.
On a day, when John Kerry was on Capitol Hill to address the Syrian Crises, he spent much of his time stonewalling on Benghazi. Testifying to the House, Kerry was hit with questions on Benghazi and why the House should trust this administration on Syria, after having withheld vital information and outward lying on Benghazi. Kerry stonewalled, insisting that the US was threatened by Syria and it’s chemical warfare.
The Syrian civil war might be ‘ground zero’ for World War III…and Barack HUSSEIN Obama NOT only owns it…he might very well start it.
Bombing a sovereign nation we are NOT at war with…how far our beloved America has fallen with this man as president.
Obama…the epitome of indecisiveness…making decisions about bombing that are ambiguous at best with wiggle-room allowing for vacillation without admitting or taking responsibility for anything . And when he doesn’t get his way there’s always subterfuge and lies…always subterfuge and lies. Wanting to bomb Syria but with NO battle plan…NO game strategy… just bloviations about limited targeted strikes that will do NOTHING but stir-up the Middle East soup with Russia jumping into the pot…Russia who will NOT look casually on but will most definitely act upon Obama’s actions.
“According to a statement posted to the Russian Foreign Ministry’s site late Wednesday, the March 19, incident in Khan al Asal, a town outside the city of Aleppo, was the reason U.N. investigators were in Syria when the Aug. 21 attack took place,” The Blaze said.
Syria…yet another muslim civil war with NO muslim country coming to the aid of their brethren. Even the Arab League has turned its back on them, and it’s time the American people wake up to the fact that we need to consider more carefully just why Obama is so determined to send America back to war again.
I’ll tell you why…it’s three-fold. One…Syria keeps our collective mind off the Obama scandals and especially keeps us from focusing on Benghazi. Two…this president wants to arm the al-Qaeda backed rebels…rebels who are the ones gassing the Syrian people and he knows it. The phony staged photos of ‘supposedly’ dead children (and using photos from when Saddam gassed the Kurds) might pull on the heartstrings and fool some but NOT all for we know Obama wants the rebels the victors…wants al-Assad to fall…for this is really a war between Russia and Iran vs. the United States, and if the rebels oust al-Assad, Obama gains a de-facto victory over them both, and his ego gets the same boost as after bin-Laden was taken down, and for a narcissist like Obama that is all important. And three…in a word…oil. More on that later.
As the Syrian crises heats up, Vladimir Putin is warning Obama against action with no proof. He makes the common sense argument that such an attack would hold no benefit for the Assad regime, but would be the best thing that could happen for Al Qaeda. He’s right. I wouldn’t rule out the Syrian government, but I have a nagging feeling about this.
Reports say that an unspecified number of Russian ships are making their way to the Mediterranean Sea, to counter US warships already in the area. Russia is a supporter of Assad and has spoken harshly against any strike against his government.
The Russian government claims that this a long planned rotation of ships, but the initial Interfax report said that Russia was increasing the number of ships in the area and not rotating ships as they assert. Their presence will add to the pressure Obama already feels as intelligence sources say that it not a slam dunk that Assad ordered the attack, and in fact, intelligence doesn’t even know which side controls which WMDs, and the UK has voted to delay action until after the UN report is completed Continue reading
Obama loves to “lead from behind” because it’s a great way to separate himself from the things he does. It gives him credible plausibility just like it did in Libya. There he claimed the US involvement was limited to air support. What he didn’t bother to tell us was that he was giving the air support to Al Qaeda fighters, just as he now wants to do in Syria.
President Obama’s favorite ploy of “leading from behind’ in order to separate himself from his policies, is in big trouble, in the action he has proposed against Syria. British Prime Minister David Cameron was set to lead the attack, but had his wings clipped by Parliament, who wants to see the final UN report before voting for the action. Many other factors are lining up against him and action could be delayed indefinitely.On Wednesday, Obama declared that there was not a shred of doubt that Assad was responsible for the gas attack of his own people
