What was once considered anathema to a civilized society by the Left is now the new standard upon which we can start killing people.
Why is President Obama profiling Bashar Al-Assad? Where is the ACLU when you need them? If Bashar was trying to get on an airplane would the criteria be the same?
“It’s most likely… we’re pretty confident, Assad used chemical weapons.” – President Barack Obama in St. Petersburg Russia 090613
Well darn it… if we’re pretty confident that it’s most likely, then let’s start dropping bombs on them.
The current Administration’s approach to Syria continues to defy reason.
But when you’re a Liberal, who needs reason?
“…400 of them (casualties of the gas attack) were children!” – President Barack Obama again in St. Petersburg Russia 090613
Yes, no debate there. (Ignore the paradox of our actions in the Middle East and the loss of children’s lives.)
A quick review of hot spots around the world presents over 150 active areas of conflict where men, women and CHILDREN are being killed. Right now.
If this is now the threshold we are using to get involved in violent conflicts world over it is going to be a busy few years. It will also be expensive in terms of man and material… not to mention money, all of which we are short of. But that aside, it would be a genuinely historic launch of the very “American Imperialism” the Left has accused their opposition of for decades. This is the work of policeman… unless there is a national interest I am unaware of. Bueller? Bueller? Anyone?
Welcome to the party.
Progressives have gotten away with saying whatever you want to hear for 100 years. The problem they now face is our memories have been enhanced by the ability to store and retrieve information. (LexisNexis) Don’t think that this is a lesson lost on them, or only known to the NSA. They are feeling the pain of their previously successful manipulation of the American public. It’s tough for a John Kerry to state in his monotone drone that he didn’t say something he knows he indeed said when 30 seconds later some jackass like me finds it and posts it for all to see. If there were ever a revolution that could be pointed to in 100 years from now it is that. (The Media has lost editorial control over what information you see… and they HATE it.)
What you are watching is a direct result of Elitists in control.
The mindset is that you are too stupid to understand so those who deem themselves superior to you don’t owe you the truth. They honestly believe that even if you were told the truth you wouldn’t get it anyway. So sit down, shut up and vote the way they tell you to. Otherwise they’ll have their comedians on the late night shows make fun of you, and their friends in the media take every opportunity to make you look foolish. Get it! Good.
Well here we are.
Another military adventure in the Middle East… and this one isn’t even for Oil.
Has anyone asked the question “Why are we not targeting Bashar directly, or at a minimum his command and control staff?”
(And frankly, what better way to get some quick defections and degrade Syria’s war fighting capability.)
If “A lesson” needs to be taught, to Whom are you teaching it? The Chemical Weapons didn’t launch themselves. The WMDS didn’t decide of their own volition to kill 1200 people. There are plenty of these weapons being made as I tap this out. They’re not going away anytime soon… so what is really going on?
If the evidence is unequivocal… sorry… if we’re pretty confident… then why not just come out and present it to the public? What possible security concern could exist? Why the need to keep all of the briefings behind closed doors? I understand the protection of assets… but this was done right out in the open. I’m “pretty confident” that this is a straight forward use of banned weapons. Or it’s at least “likely”. Or is it as clear as that?
