Fun with Inane Quotes…

“If he drops sarin on his own people, what’s that got to do with us?”

This was a comment attributed to “an anonymous Obama aide” by the Weekly Standard. Full Article here.

OK… first off we don’t know exactly who said it.  But for my point I don’t care, because it’s an interesting question.  However I would LOVE to know…

Secondly, we need a few definitions here so all of us understand what is being said.

I will handle this with a couple of links:

Sarin (Gas)

Weapons of Mass Destruction

“He”

“his own people”

Now let’s explore this…

“If he drops sarin  gases on his own people in showers, what’s that got to do with us?”  (Hmmm…. seems like we don’t like that sort of thing.)

“If he Obama drops sarin on his own people, what’s that got to do with us up here in Canada?”  (Do you think we might want some help?)

“If he Yugoslavians drop sarin kill their on his own people, what’s that got to do with us?”  (Apparently a lot.)

“If he the Prime Minister of Britain drops sarin on his own people, what’s that got to do with us?”  (Would we have anything to say about it?)

“If he drops sarin  a nuke on his own people, what’s that got to do with us?”  (I wonder if this policy position has more to do with bunker buster bombs than anything else… we want to use them, they are nukes, we would need to “loosen” the definition of “weapons of mass destruction” in the minds of the people.  Just a very small thought.)

Aside from the embarrassingly stupid meaning of such a sentence, no matter the context, as using such weapons always “means something to us” it is illustrative of the current administrations foreign policy.  In other words, there really isn’t one.  We are all lucky our Presidents have terms limits of two terms.  If they didn’t, who knows how much damage one could do?
