15 Signs That Obama Has Already Made The Decision To Go To War With Syria

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Obama Nobel Peace PrizeThe Obama administration seems absolutely determined to help radical Islamic jihadists that have beheaded Christians, that have massacred entire Christian villages, and that have pledged loyalty to al-Qaeda topple the Assad regime and take over Syria.  Yes, the Assad regime is horrible, but if these jihadist lunatics take control it will destabilize the entire region, make the prospect of a major regional war much more probable, and plunge the entire nation of Syria into a complete and utter nightmare.  It has been estimated that somewhere around 100,000 people have already been killed in the civil war in Syria, and now it looks like the U.S. military and the rest of NATO plan to become directly involved in the conflict.  The Obama administration is actually considering an attack on Syria even though the American people are overwhelmingly against it, Obama does not have Congressional approval to start a war, and he will never get approval for military action from the UN because it will be blocked by Russia.  This is setting up to become a colossal foreign policy disaster for the United States.

A potential war with Syria has been brought to the forefront because of a chemical weapons attack near Damascus last week that killed as many as 1,400 people.  The Obama administration and several other western nations are blaming this attack on the Assad regime.

But others are pointing out that it would make absolutely no sense for the Assad regime to do such a thing.  They appear to be winning the civil war, and Assad knows that Obama has previously said that the use of chemical weapons in Syria would be a “red line” for the United States.

So why would the Assad regime launch a brutal chemical weapons attack against women and children just miles from where UN inspectors were staying?

Why would Assad risk war with the United States and the rest of NATO?

Assad would have to be extremely stupid or extremely suicidal to do such a thing.

The ones that benefit from this chemical weapons attack are the jihadist rebels.  The odds of foreign intervention in the conflict just went way, way up.

We will probably never learn the real truth about who was actually behind that attack.  And even if it had not happened, the U.S. and the rest of NATO would have probably come up with another justification to go to war anyway.  They appear absolutely obsessed with getting rid of Assad, but they have not really thought through the consequences.

The following are 15 signs that Obama has already made the decision to go to war with Syria…

#1 Syria has agreed to allow UN officials to inspect the site of the recent chemical weapons attack that killed up to 1,400 people, but a “senior U.S. official” says that such an inspection would be “too late to be credible“.

#2 According to ABC News, the White House is saying that there is “very little doubt” that the Assad regime was behind the deadly chemical weapons attack last week.

#3 Four U.S. warships with ballistic missiles are moving into position in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. If the command is given, they will be able to rain Tomahawk cruise missiles down on targets inside Syria within minutes…

U.S. defense officials told The Associated Press that the Navy had sent a fourth warship armed with ballistic missiles into the eastern Mediterranean Sea but without immediate orders for any missile launch into Syria.

U.S. Navy ships are capable of a variety of military actions, including launching Tomahawk cruise missiles, as they did against Libya in 2011 as part of an international action that led to the overthrow of the Libyan government.

#4 CBS News is reporting that “the Pentagon is making the initial preparations for a Cruise missile attack on Syrian government forces”.

#5 On Saturday, Barack Obama met with his national security team to discuss what actions should be taken in Syria.

#6 U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel says that Barack Obama has asked him to “prepare options for all contingencies” as far as a conflict with Syria is concerned.

#7 After a phone conversation with British Prime Minister David Cameron about the situation in Syria, the White House announced that both leaders expressed “grave concern” about the chemical weapons attack that took place last week.

#8 Military commanders from the United States, Britain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, France, Italy and Canada are meeting in Amman, Jordan on Sunday to coordinate plans for upcoming attacks on Syria.

#9 According to France’s second largest newspaper, rebel forces that have been trained by the CIA have been pouring toward Damascus “since mid-August“…

According to our information, the regime’s opponents, supervised by Jordanian, Israeli and American commandos moving towards Damascus since mid-August. This attack could explain the possible use of the Syrian president to chemical weapons.

According to information obtained by Le Figaro , the first trained in guerrilla warfare by the Americans in Jordan Syrian troops reportedly entered into action since mid-August in southern Syria, in the region of Deraa. A first group of 300 men, probably supported by Israeli and Jordanian commandos, as well as men of the CIA, had crossed the border on August 17. A second would have joined the 19. According to military sources, the Americans, who do not want to put troops on the Syrian soil or arming rebels in part controlled by radical Islamists form quietly for several months in a training camp set up at the border Jordanian- Syrian fighters ASL, the Free Syrian Army, handpicked.

#10 The U.S. military moved a significant number of F-16 fighter jets to Jordan earlier this year for military exercises, and kept them there afterward “at the request of the Jordanian government“.

#11 According to a government document that Wikileaks released back in March 2012, NATO personnel have been on the ground inside Syria preparing for regime change since 2011.

#12 The Times of Israel is reporting that an internal military assessment has concluded that “Washington is seriously considering a limited yet effective attack that will make it clear to the regime in Damascus that the international community will not tolerate the use of weapons of mass destruction against Syrian civilians or any other elements”.

#13 U.S. Senator John McCain recently said that if the U.S. military does not hit Syria, it will be like “writing a blank check to other brutal dictators around the world if they want to use chemical weapons”.

#14 According to the New York Times, “the NATO air war in Kosovo” is being studied “as a possible blueprint for acting without a mandate from the United Nations”.

#15 The White House has released a statement that says that the Obama administration has no plans to put “boots on the ground“, but it did not rule out any other types of military action.

This is not a conflict that the U.S. military should be involved in.

And we should especially not be on the side of the rabidly anti-Christian, rabidly anti-Israel and rabidly anti-western forces that are attempting to take control of Syria.

The terrorists that the Obama administration is backing are absolutely psychotic.  Just check out the following example from a recent article posted on the Blaze

New video posted on YouTube purports to show the graphic murder – execution style – of three Syrian truck drivers who did nothing more than belong  to a minority faith the local Al Qaeda affiliate does not like.

In the video, a small band of Islamist radicals with the Al Qaeda-linked ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) group is seen waving the tractor trailers off the side of an Iraqi road and then proceeds to interrogate the unsuspecting drivers about their prayer habits, trying to discover if they are Sunnis or members of the Alawite minority in Syria.

When they “fail” the Sunni jihadis’ pop roadside quiz, the truck drivers are seated in a line in the median of the road and shot in the back of their heads firing squad style by the self-appointed law enforcers, jury, judge and executioner.

Why in the world would the United States want to arm such people?

Why in the world would the United States want to go to war to help such people take power?

It is utter insanity.

And as I mentioned earlier, most Americans are totally against getting involved.  According to a stunning new poll, 60 percent of all Americans are against U.S. military intervention in Syria, and only 9 percent are in favor of it.

So in light of all that you have just read, why is the Obama administration so determined to help the rebels in Syria?

    “Trade wars, currency wars, world wars”

    – Gerald Celente

    History is repeating itself. What better way to get the attention away from the depression like US economy than a war? Wars boost the economy in the short term but in the end this will as the article states, will DESTABILIZE the entire region.

    Expect higher gas prices at the pump and a showdown with Russia. And if I was Odumber, I would not test Putin. He ain’t playing with the US anymore.

    • Rodster

      According to Wikileaks, this military intervention was planned as far back as 2011.

      Link below:

      • K

        This battle plan, yes 2011. The overall plan far older.

        • Syrin


    • JustanOguy

      Russia will just sit back and watch the U.S. eventually go BK.

      They learned a lot from their little trip to Afghanistan… Playing world police costs too much.

      • indigenous

        russia will be around they are good people unlike you colonial mutts on my land illegally!get lost!

    • Cyber Revengeance

      gerald celente is an old and experienced man. he sees farther. he is correct.

      regarding war usa is ready and plans are made years ahead if any war. looks like despite any event Americans are not supporting war. planners must be stunned that everything is not going as planned. laughable are these Muslim countries that are always in conflict mode.

    • cannuck21

      Yep agree. And all the time the innocent civilians pay with their lives.
      Shame on the war mongering b…….’s

    • Gay Veteran

      Celente also says when all else fails they take you to war.
      Our “leaders” are nothing but war-mongering psychopaths.

        It’s Eric Holder, white man.

    • Syrin

      So what color is your metrosexual in chief who will sign the order to go to war? I bet you’re even dumber than your posts even suggest.

      • xander cross

        That would be your posts that makes you dumber by the moment. Face it, you and the majority of white men love war and even pray for it every Sunday before its kickoff time.

  • Tim

    The U.S. is so overextended that this might be the war that finally does us in. The final straw if you will. We couldn’t afford the (illegal) wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. And we certainly can’t afford to get involved in Syria. Our economy is on the brink of another major downturn, millions of Americans need work, our infrastructure needs repair, the statutory debt limit has been reached, etc. We have no business getting involved in another foreign entaglement. None. But TPTB obviously have an agenda. It grieves me to see what’s going on in the world. The only consolation I have is that a time is coming when there will be no more war.

    • Rodster

      I was reading an article today that the City of Richmond, CA is trying to stop Wells Fargo from hundreds or maybe thousands of home foreclosures. The city wants to exercise their right of eminent domain.

      If that’s you’re only consolation you’re truly doomed. We are part of fallen humanity, there is no hope at all without Jesus Christ.

      • indigenous

        what jesus christ? the social construct you white devils made his name isnt jesus stupid its Yeshua and the lord was never white either you people are sinners and going to hell for altering the lords image and identity which the bible states non e shall alter.

      • indigenous

        why believe in someone elses religion pagan? you white people killed the lord Yeshua which you so called devils call the lord jesus.

    • Gay Veteran

      totally agree

    • Mudpie

      I cannot imagine we are going full scale into Syria.

      What this President has done to this nation – with lots of help of course – will go down in infamy as, well, words fail.

        Let this be a lesson to Americans: Stay away from Indoneezians!

      • indigenous

        naw what you people have done is what will make an economic collapse i believe republicans are fully responsible for the shut down. as well america owes a 17 trillion dollar deficit because of you white illegals on my land who made a nasty debt like you already did in europe stupid!truth hurts!its not possible to raise that kind of debt in two terms retard!

  • xander cross

    White men creating another war. That is all they know. I do not believe for one second that 60% of white Americans don’t want a war with Syria. That is a lie.

    • Barry

      Xander, I’m white. I’m completely against this. Based off your assumption, I’m for war – but you couldn’t be further from right. So what makes you think you’re not wrong on the rest of the 60%? And America is composed of a lot more than white people. 60% of Americans are against it. Face it.

      • xander cross

        Not true at all because the majority of people that support war in Syria are white men. They control the media and thus, the opinions of Americans. Your numbers are false.

    • itiswhatitis

      Isn’t there a war right now among the blacks in Africa? I personally don’t think middle east people look white. Isn’t there all kinds of wars in the middle east? There is warmongers in every race. Your statements are ignorant.

    • Syrin

      You do understand what color your metrosexual in chief is right? Your racism is making you color blind in that even black men look white to you. What color were those gang bangers that killed that Australian student?

      • xander cross

        Your president is bi racial, see, this is what I am talking about. You say he is black even though he has a white mother. Who is the racist here? That would be you.

      • xander cross

        What color was the guy that was trying to shoot up a black elementary school? What color is Amanda Knox that perform a satanic ritual on a guy in Paris? What color is Jodi arias? You white men like Amanda Knox even though you’re a Christian and she worships satan. You love wars, because you make money from it by plundering its resources.

        • Louise in MO

          You must have a lot of time to waste. No one here is buying what you are selling.

  • xander cross

    The hypocrisy from white men that do not believe anything the media says, but quotes polls saying that people don’t want war. Correction, white America lives war and destruction and continue to destroy other countries in the name of white supremacy and Christianity.

    • Huh?

      I’m a white Christian that despises war . Don’t be so quick to judge people as it only shows your ignorance.

      • Pauly

        The Christians are silent and there is no anti-war protests of any kind. They even pray for our barbarians, I mean troops.

        • xander cross

          Exactly. Remember John hagee prayed for the war in Syria and prayed for Israel and the u.s to destroy it. He has millions of followers that believe Israel should nuke Syria and Iran and yes, all of his followers are white men and white women.

    • rentslave

      White supremacy makes the world go round.It’s the one thing that world cannot do without.

    • Syrin

      Wow, you’re a racist and a bigot. So are you a peaceful muslim member of Al Qaida or the Muislim Brotherhood? Maybe one of the peaceful black North African slave traders?

      White Supremacy? Blacks can kill whites all day long and no one will blink. Whites can’t get jobs they are better qualified for than blacks. It’s so cute how you base your bigotry on something that was true over 50 years ago. So a black man and his black assistants such as Holder are pushing white supremacy? So cute how stupid the left is.

        • xander cross

          Not at all. I am just telling the truth about this economy and wars for profit that are created by white men. Not angry at all. It’s the truth finally coming out about white men who love war to profit from it.

          • chilller

            And the US president mongering for war THIS time is…..NOT WHITE!

          • xander cross

            His mother is white. Again, you prove my point how racist white men are.

          • Angel Peace

            Funny, Obama wrote about how he ABHORRED (HATED) his WHITE Mother. He NEVER, EVER mentions his White Mother, EVER in public. He EMBRACES his black heritage and NOT his white heritage. His white self-hatred is evident, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out.
            BTW, you are the racist, Xander Cross, just look at all your nasty posts. They prove the point…

          • xander cross

            Stop lying because he never hated his mother and yes, I read his book to know that. He never wrote it at all. Stop listening to Fox News.

          • K

            How sad. You seek a unifying reason behind all that is happening. But you miss the target. Evil is the universal reason. I assure you evil transcends all racial, ethnic, and gender boundaries. The love of money, is the root of all evil. When money is worshipped, as it is in todays world. Evil grows quite rapidly.

          • Rodster

            Now my brotha, you’s speaking like a white person. It’s not TRUTH, it’s TROOF. You know’s it’s like we talks in the hood hood,like our brothas with the 5 gold chain’s hanging off they necks, with the FOE gold teeth in their mouths and the sideways peace signs.

            Come on my brotha you wants to be black but you sho is talking white. You got’s to be speaking like a brotha which you ain’t.

            Man you ain’t no brotha you’s white talking like that, fool. We needs to be hearing moe down with whitey and cracker be foe we accepts you as as black.

    • BonusGift

      Ah, the hypocrite calling others hypocrites. I would suggest you look up the term psychological ‘projection’. In short, you have it backwards. A majority of white Americans are clearly against attacking Syria and a majority of blacks are likely for it, especially if Barry is for it. In addition, the most violent countries on the planet are those run by blacks not whites (merely a fact).

      • xander cross

        Not true and you’re lying. The majority of whites are for war and the majority of them pray for it. Most violent countries are controlled by whites and 85% of crimes are committed by other whites. Does the Huntington Beach riots ring a bell?

        • JustanOguy

          Somalia and the Darfur region in Sudan are run by whites?

      We have a saying: for a person with a hammer, everything look like nails. In your case, you look at everything as if it were a problem of race, and it’s not. Unfortunately all races are equal in every sense, including the human miseries of greed, hate, violence and so on.

      • xander cross

        White men don’t believe that at all. They think that they’re superior than every other race thus the wars all over the Middle East. White men get mad at black women getting food stamps when they created it for black women in the first place. The two most powerful people in this world is a white man and an asain woman thus why white men/asain women marriage increased and white men are leaving white women in mass numbers

    As I have said before, all part of the plan. Syria first, then Iran. Obama is just a puppet, as well as a majority of the rest of the Government. It would not matter if 100% of the American people disapprove. They no longer serve the people. The plan will go forward until it is finished, or until it is stopped. The build up by DHS of weapons and ammo, is to make sure no one objects too loudly. The Republic has fallen. Just amazing how few even notice.

    • MeMadMax

      I don’t know why they think they can install a new government in syria now… The FSA/rebels/terrorists/al-nusra/whatever have lost all credibility to the syrian people. If assad’s government is removed from power it will guarantee perpetual war in syria for a long time… The truth of all of this in syria has been out for a long time, but because they speak a different language, nobody knows whats really going on en-masse, this leaves english speaking people to be vulnerable to progpaganda efforts put up by our tyrannical governments… There is one russian news crew in syria named newsanna on youtube that gives NO BS daily reports of whats going on in syria. And they even have their videos translated. This small but powerful stream of information is so important, I cannot emphasize the need for people to translate these types of videos, and for people that speak english(or any other language for that matter) to SHARE these videos as much as possible. Language barriers have started wars before, we must prevent this kind of crap…

      • K

        Max perpetual war in Syria, might just be what they are after. If you want to make sure no one bothers their neighbors. You keep them busy within their own boarders. First Iraq, then Libya, then Syria, finally Iran. No more challenges to the petro dollar.

        • Makati1

          Sorry to burst your bubble, but both China and Russia are already challenging the petro dollar and so are an ever larger number of other countries that the US cannot stop. The days of the dollar are numbered.

          • K

            Very true. But if the major players in the middle east are no longer pushing it. They hope it will die on the vine. Not saying it will. Just reporting what the psychos in charge believe.

            Right, they will burn the world to the ground before they give up their free $ scheme.

          • energizedmortal

            The days of the dollar may be numbered but whoever is running the show will not give up their power. People in power rather there be no world than to relinquish control which is probably why most of the world will be at war soon and people are losing more and more freedom everyday.

    This is all about trying to preserve the US currency as the means of international exchange. The bankers are behind this in large part, but there’s more.

    Obamugabe, the Nobel Peace prize winner, and American Fuhrer, will enter this war to try to distract America from the shambles he’s left at home. Then, in the next few weeks he’ll sign the UN Small Arms Treaty. Russian troops have been training WITH US soldiers here in the US to take guns from individual homes. This means that all in one fell swoop the US will secede all sovereignty to an international ruling body, destroy the US Constitution and become the USSA with Obamugabe playing the role of Stalin. All endorsed by the no information liberals.

  • Be careful guys….only poor, middle class Americans, Russians and Syrians will die….while the elites in all these countries enjoy the show..

    Russia and America are the Best Friends For EVER. Whenever they want to destroy a country they come from opposite sides in the name of Communism/Democracy – Socialism/Capitalism aka any opposite ideologies with a common ground on Freedom. This is the same tactic they
    used for over 100 years now.

    List of countries they have divided and ruled and butchered millions of local population.

    1. Germany

    2. Korea

    3. Combodia

    4. Vietnam

    5. Yugoslavia

    6. Afghanistan

    7. Libya

    and Now

    8. Syria

    Is their any doubt looking at the past history of these two countries involved in so called peace and freedom of its local population and then murdering millions and quietly leaving the scene as Russia has done often in the past with America staying to butcher more.

    While a majority of Americans are against military intervention in Syria, I think also a majority of them do not seem to understand the repercussions or the issues at stake as a result of US and/or NATO intervention in Syria. This has the possibility of developing into a much larger regional war, if not a world war and the equation is simple. Syria and Iran have a mutual defense treaty. So if Syria is attacked, Iran as well as Hezbollah terrorists from Lebanon will likely come to Syria’s aid. Also, Russia and China need Syria as a geopolitical interest in the Middle East. Let’s say the US or NATO does attack Syria and Iran comes to Syria’s aid. Well, the US and NATO might want to wage war in Iran as well. Iran, like Syria is also heavily backed by Russia and China. Iran is also a member of China’s security alliance, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and is also a candidacy member of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, which is the military alliance Russia has with former Soviet/Warsaw Pact nations like Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Turkmenistan.

    So you can tell were all this is likely headed. US/NATO intervention in Syria = Iran, Russia, China, and the CSTO nations coming to Syria’s aid.

    Russia and China I can probably guarantee you are not going to tolerate the US or NATO destroying its most important allies in the Middle East. Take a look at what the US and NATO have done as a result of militarily waging wars in the Former Yugoslavia to overthrow Milosevic, or Iraq to get Hussein and alleged WMD’s and in Libya to overthrow Gaddafi. All that has brought us is nothing more than more Islamic extremism, terrorism, destabilization and more humanitarian problems:

    In the Former Yugoslavia (specifically Kosovo) you have Christian Serbs and Kosovo Albanian Muslims still at battle with one another and there is a continuation of growing Islamic terrorism and organ harvesting. In Iraq, you’ve now got a larger al-Qaeda presence and car bombs going off on a daily basis; and in Libya, what used to be a beautiful country that restored diplomatic relations after decades of isolation is now turned into another Middle East hellhole, also a breeding ground for terrorism; we have four dead Americans and a silent genocide taking place against minority groups such as Coptic Christians and African tribes.

    Now they’re wanting to repeat the same tactics in Syria.

    I’d also like to remind people that the US/NATO wars in the Former Yugoslavia, Iraq and Libya were all done in violation of international law, as well as NATO’s own charter under Article 5 since none of those countries ever posed a threat to the national security of the United States or to any NATO member country, and furthermore the wars were not approved by the US Congress. Syria is also no threat to the United States and this “chemical weapons” propaganda like they spread about in Iraq in 2003, has no capability of attacking the United States or our interests.

    This government is run by psychopaths like Obama, Kerry, McCain, Graham and Hagel. They’re putting the American people last on their priority list (as usual) and spreading war mongering for a country that is no threat this country. And I don’t buy their notion of ‘protecting’ Syrian civilians. If this was true, then the US or NATO should have intervened in… let’s see… the Ivory Coast, Congo, Rwanda, Myanmar, Darfur… we’ve got a major drug cartel war right in our back yard in Mexico that’s left over 60,000 people dead and its spilled over into the United States and no intervention by the US or NATO. Kinda makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

    • Marianne Terrell Morton

      Well said John…I’d also like to add that Assad knows what happened to Qaddafi and Hussein–the images were not pretty. This is a man who is going to go down with bullets blazing before he allows some disgraceful hanging or his mutilated body paraded by insurgents.
      Syria has over 100,000 rockets ready to be fired—let that sink in for a moment—100,000 !! Budapest, Anbkara, Tel Aviv and most of Israel and possibly Beirut will get shelled by everything he’s got. Remeber Sadam Hussein and his scorched earth policy as he left Kuwait?–wait until Assad makes his closing move.
      If Israel gets hit with a chemical weapon or two?–all bets are off–Damascus may end up as a smoldering rubble…
      Hagel preparing “for all contingencies” is alluding to the fact that the US has also included at least 2 nuclear subs with those 4 destroyers ( and air bases essentially surrounding Syria)–this is a message to Russia to stay out of it–
      I pray that a surgical strike will cause all involved to desire a more peacable solution–but this not escalating appears to be the more far-fetched probability…
      PS: I still wonder why we are against Assad instead of supporting him? The “rebels” are Al Quada, mercenaries and a ragtag group of Islamic extremists—Assad’s family has peacefully governed a nation consisting of secularists, sunnis, shiites, alawites, christians and even jews with little internal conflict–the minority Baath party has allowed for a simple balance and freedom of belief in Syria–now we will be supporting a chaotic overthrow, a prolonged internal war and probable extremism with sharia in the end…..makes you go hhhmmmmmm

      • John Blythe

        I’ve noticed that U.S. foreign policy has been reckless ever since the end of the Cold War (although in my opinion, the Cold War has just been dormant, not over and Syria living proof), but you are correct in your assertion as to why Assad is already deemed the enemy and why we are not supporting him. While Assad is a dictator, I think I’d feel more comfortable with him in power, just as Mubarak and Gaddafi were in power. You take a look at what has happened to these Middle East government as a result of them being removed: Egypt is in turmoil, and thankfully the military came in to push Morsi out and to stop the radical Muslim Brotherhood; and Libya is in ruins, becoming a breeding ground for al-Qaeda just like what happened to Iraq. In Syria, these are the same al-Qaeda linked terrorists or affiliations with the same organizations.

        The United States doesn’t seem to learn from history or its mistakes. We armed the Afghan Mujahideen against the Soviet Union, which became al-Qaeda. In the 1990’s when Yugoslavia fell apart, the US and NATO armed Muslim extremists in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which later moved over into Kosovo which the US and NATO bombed Serbia/Yugoslavia, even though it was verified later on that several of these Muslim fighters in the Yugoslav Wars participated in the 9/11 attacks. In Iraq, there were no WMD’s and no al-Qaeda and now that entire country is ruins and shambles and there are car bombings on a daily basis. And of course Libya, again another country destroyed for no reason, we armed al-Qaeda terrorists even the top Libyan rebel commander Abdel Haskin al-Hasidi told the London Telegraph he was a member of al-Qaeda and his rebel fighters fought against Americans in Afghanistan before coming to Libya. One country after another destabilized and becoming a haven for terrorism.

        And the US keeps repeating this over and over again.

        I thought under the NDAA people that associate with terrorists would be detained indefinitely without due process… hmm… I guess this law does not apply to Obama, Kerry, McCain, Graham or Hagel.

        As for Russia, I think right now they’re just waiting to see what happens and not acting too quickly. There was a report recently that stated President Putin was planning on deploying more naval forces to the Mediterranean Sea and Russia has an important naval base in Syria. For all we know, Russia might already have its own nuclear submarines near Syria as well.

Why, who knows, who cares ? Our Navy is on WW I level, who cares ? We are feminizing/reducing the military and the U.S. Marine Corps, who cares ? Mubarak down, Gadhafi down, Assad to follow. Question-> What if Putin backs Assad BIG and fires on the U.S. warships ? Does this ignite WW III, who cares ? How does this effect the Russian troops hired to keep the U.S. citizens in alignment, who cares ? Congress ? Who needs Congress, who cares ? Who needs or cares about the Constitution ? We got OB/Soros, marginalized Christianity, an impotent enabling Catholic Church, gay marriage, mega abortions, open borders, multiculturalism, enviro-pagans, the Federal Reserve/Wall Street.

            So long as you don’t use the power of the state to eliminate freedom of religion. Freedom of Religion is a First Amendment Right. Separation of church and state is not even in the Constitution and has been bastardized by the left to effectively eliminate Christianity and our Judaio-Christian ethic. JFK, a coward catholic, started the falsehood of separation of church and state. A true religion is based and starts with free will, unlike many forms of Islam which are based on violence, domination and the suppressing of women. Christi Fidelis !

Pastors/Priests tip toe through the daisies routinely in fear of BIG G. 9/10 Catholic Mass sermons are soft ball grade B performances for the 54% of sell outs voting for abortion supporting politicians and gay marriage. These are deep offenses against God’s laws and Commandments. Christi Fidelis !

  • im4truth4all

    In my opinion this is simply just a distraction from the problems here in the USA.

  • davidmpark

    Okay… so who are the players here, what are possible scenarios, and possible out comes.

    Syria is in with the Sunni Muslims, siding with Iran (ruled by the Twelver’s). Allied also with the Asian Leftists; Russia, China, and their allies. The rebels are Shi’ite Muslims that side with Muslim Brotherhood, Al-Qaeda, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Yemen, Iraq, and Afghanistan. They are also allied with Britain, France, and the Rest of NATO… and us.

    Here’s what’s interesting… why is Israel’s interests not considered in these allied confederations? Both Sunni and Shi’ite Muslims, along with a lot of Europe and Russians, are calling for Israel’s demise followed closely by ours also. And with that in mind, why are we siding with the same people that we’ve been fighting for the last 12 years that have killed about 10,000 Americans?

    Here’s something interesting also… why is there a red line established by Obama if they also claimed there were no chemical weapons in Syria earlier? And the rest of the buildup since 2011?

    I want answers to these questions. This is not right.

    If Barry orders a missile attack targeting the Syrian government, what retaliation could we expect? They, or the rebels have chemical weapons – what are the odds those same weapons are here on American soil? Our government’s negligence of our borders has allowed a lot to enter already. They go off in one US major city and all panic would break loose. Also, their allies in Iran, Russia, and China may make some economic moves. Cut off the Straight of Hormuz, or terror attacks on the Suez Canal, or cut exports to the US even just a little and we would be in a would of pain!

    Barry decides not to act, and our NATO and European allies would make issue of that and could lead to financial market problems for us (not very likely, but possible). The worst would probably be a British comedy spoof of how we’re trying to outshine the French for how fast we can run from conflict. The biggest problem would come from Shi’ite’s that would demand punishment for our lack of action against the Sunni’s. Worst thing would be financial terrorism in the form of causing problems with the Suez Canal and forcing our markets into free fall in high oil prices, or sell off a lot of our treasury’s and bonds too fast – panicking the system.

    Best thing to do right now, and I know this will not happen but I have to say it. Is to call back our troops from the region except for Israel (they’re our best friends there), and immediately reopen all of the oil wells here in the US; overturn Obamacare and a lot of other restrictions; close the border. It won’t be immediate relief and in short term our financial markets will take a major hit, but in the long run it leads to more stability and we can transition our dollar to hard assets and slowly off of debt.

    Again, that’s the best idea I’ve got! Wish I knew more about it all, but that’s my best.

    The Military-Industrial Complex? The world banks? Some secretive doomsday cult trying to bring in World War III?

    Before all this started I hardly knew anything about Syria, other than that they didn’t get along too well with Israel.

    Why was Libya destroyed? Why was Colonel Gaddafi killed off? Why was Saddam Hussein killed off? Why did we spent a decade tromping through Afghanistan only to hand it back to the Taliban?

    Sorry people, there’s something that we’re not seeing, there has to be a REASON that the West is pouring the entirety of our wealth and military power into this part of the world, and with Shale Gas, the oil no longer looks to be the reason.

    What the hell is buried out there in those desert sands that millions have to die for those in power to get their hands on it!? Sound a little weird, just go and look at the ANCIENT history of this region, the long forgotten buried cities, the legends.

    First Obama, the UN, and NATO look stupid. Reagan did not stop but helped the Iraqis use chemical weapons against Iran. Now we protest??

    Second even this blog with the rest of the world is ignoring that Syria is a puppet State of Russia and equipped by Russia and has Russian Troops on the ground. With the latest put down of Obama by Putin you really think Russia is going just sit there?

    Third if the Russians get involved we could very well have the making of WW III. I wonder if all these “experts” are considering this? Putin knows Obama is just all talk and zero action.

    Fourth Syria has been a conduit for arms from Iran to Hezbollah, Hamas , et. al. Does anyone believe that Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas won’t expand the war to a wider arena?

    Fifth do we really want more wars not only draining our finances but killing, maiming, and wounding American Troops?

If Obama can oust Assad just using cruise missiles and stealth bombers, his popularity will skyrocket. It really depends on what Russia and Iran has in mind.

  • RarefiedSnotress

    As I’ve stated on another post, the military is the most bloated of the US Govt divisions.. it seeks any seemingly noble cause and has been only too happy to overextend itself.
    Of course I feel sorry for the people of Syria.. war is always ugly.
    I think it’s one of those psychological oddities that we deem chemical warfare so much worse than bombs. I guess it seems more noble to leave maimed wounded people than quietly destroyed people because in some sense it gives a “fighting chance”.. a twisted sort of “fair sportsmanship”.

  • FounderChurch

    OUR MILITARY…Search “FounderChurch” for more information…. ALL militaries in the history of the world represent the beating heart of their nations. They are the only citizens who lay down their lives for the nation. Everyone else are freeloaders. This is true even when the government is dictatorial tyrants. So we should never have destroyed the rank and file of the Iraqi military to only force for law and order in the country. We paid dearly for that with 5 years of bloody insurgency and are still paying.

    That said, we should not destroy the Syrian Army unless we want to unleash chaos for a hundred years.

    We do need to decapitate the regime, and use the CIA, which we are going to do, with our allies including the Saudi Kingdom.


  • FounderChurch

    The world will be well served by America adroitly handling this matter. Russia needs a continued presence, the Sunnis need to control Syria, the Isrelis need peace on their border, and Syria needs a country run by their military with regime elements removed. Everyone wants a stable Syria including the Syrian people. No one needs a war there, or continued instability like we have in Libya.

    All of the recent actions we’ve seen over the past five years are but the prefix of WWIII.

  • Dennis

    I find it disturbing how our leader is so quickly set on unleashing unwarranted chaos upon an already war torn country of people fighting amongst themselves and has done nothing to disarm Iran from building not just one but many WMD’s that present a much greater threat to all the world.

    • Gay Veteran

      Iran poses NO threat. We are the ones bringing death and destruction around the globe.

      • TtT Engine

        Yes, of course. Iran working 24/7 to complete their nuclear program is for health/medical reasons only. Iran repeatedly threatening to wipe Israel off the map is just rhetoric. Those rockets streaming into Israel are just pretend. Ok, head back into the sand. Thank you.

        • Gay Veteran

          yeah, Israel has a lot to fear. After all it’s not like Israel has over 100 nuclear weapons and REFUSES to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
          But that won’t stop psychopathic warmongers like Obama, etc.

    Syria is in the way to get to Iran. It is just a stepping stone to the prize – Iran. Iran is selling oil for gold and this will not be tolerated by TPTB.

    I wish I could say I am surprised. I am not. The big problem is that once again we bypass the Congress and go to war without their approval.
    There is a draft law on the books still. It is terribly prejudiced against males with a healthy body and mind. It draws in an entire generation of people. Those people are the common people and it includes people of all racial origins.
    The Elite do not get drafted very often. They are the ones that hide in Canada. They hide behind college as well. Often influence of powerful VIPs keep some from getting drafted.
    Mr. George Bush, former President of the United States, is one example of how it really works. If it had been anyone else, they would be in prison for desertion. Going AWOL for months at a time because he had orders for Vietnam . . .

    What has happened to equality of sexes when we produce such a draft law?
    Females should also be eligible if it is an equal opportunity draft. So should all the illegal immigrants that want to be pardoned. They are not part of the draft. I guess none of them have ever legally registered for the draft, and that makes them criminals even though they are foreigners.

    Syria is the opening shot of World War III. That is the only way I see this ending. It is important to ask the right questions before this occurs.
    My first question is will it require a draft if we step in and take Syria?
    Second: How much will it cost?
    Last: How equal is the draft law and is it legal by today’s equal opportunity laws?
    I do agree the entire thing is a distraction to keep a President from being impeached. If you were President, what would your choices be?

    Three: Where does this money come from when we have a bankrupt economy.

  • The left wailed for YEARS about US involvement in Iraq/Afghanistan: “Bush’s War”, “War for Oil”, etc. Now, it’s those same leftists that demand we “get involved” in Syria because “they’re killing people”. Really? Hussein killed people in Iraq for years, the Taliban killed Afghans by the hundreds monthly – not a peep from the left then. We have no national interest in Syria, we are hated no matter what we do/don’t do. Arm Israel and let them take care of themselves. As for the rest, it’s NOT OUR PROBLEM.

    • Gay Veteran

  • joinot

    The way of Qatar’s desire (and Saudi Arabia’s support) to run a Natural Gas line through Syria and up through Turkey so they can become Europe’s main supplier and not Russia. Currently Russia controls this resource and pipeline.

    Others were not at all reticent about aiding and abbetting the murder of countless more by Qatari mercenaries.

    The irony is that as has been known for a long time, and as the FT itself reported ten days ago, the Syrian “rebels” who actually have been Qatari mercenaries, have been receiving weapons shipments for years from the wealthy Persian Gulf country, with the implicit knowledge of both Europe and the US.

    So why the rush by France and Britain to allow weapons armaments to resume by official channels, even if it means even more weaponization of the Assad regime by Russia and China, more bloodshed, and more death? Simple: natural gas.

  • joinot

    A battle is raging over whether pipelines will go toward Europe from east to west, from Iran and Iraq to the Mediterranean coast of Syria, or take a more northbound route from Qatar and Saudi Arabia via Syria and Turkey. Having realized that the stalled Nabucco pipeline, and indeed the entire Southern Corridor, are backed up only by Azerbaijan’s reserves and can never equal Russian supplies to Europe or thwart the construction of the South Stream, the West is in a hurry to replace them with resources from the Persian Gulf. Syria ends up being a key link in this chain, and it leans in favor of Iran and Russia; thus it was decided in the Western capitals that its regime needs to change. The fight for «democracy» is a false flag thrown out to cover up totally different aims.

    A gas pipeline from Iran would be highly profitable for Syria. Europe would gain from it as well, but clearly someone in the West didn’t like it. The West’s gas-supplying allies in the Persian Gulf weren’t happy with it either, nor was would-be no. 1 gas transporter Turkey, as it would then be out of the game. The new «unholy alliance» which formed between them shamelessly declared its goal to be «protecting democratic values» in the Middle East, although logically speaking the U.S. and its allies ought to begin this with their own partners in the coalition against Syria from among the monarchies of the Persian Gulf, which are questionable in this regard.

  • Piglet

    Q: [So in light of all that you have just read, why is the Obama administration so determined to help the rebels in Syria?]
    A: Because a Syria that descends into chaos poses no threat to Israel’s domination of the region, and the US government’s Mideast foreign policy is decided in Tel Aviv, not Washington. See who gains by what the Obama administration plans to do and it’s easy to determine who is pushing for a US and NATO attack.

  • The End is Near

    Fed will end QE4 and Obama will begin the Syrian War the week AFTER Merkel gets reelected.

    First of all, I disagree with the assertion that Assad regime is terrible. There is no evidence that Assad is doing or has ever done anything bad to the Syrian people or to anybody else.

    I also disagree that Syria in a civil war. The so called rebels are not Syrians at all. This is actually an invasion by foreign, NATO backed terrorists for the purpose of overthrowing the good Assad regime and installing a US friendly puppet..

    As far as the chemical attack. It was clearly a false flag operation carried out by the foreign, NATO backed terrorists.and is being used as a justification
    to get NATO involved.

  • ArigatouGozaimas

    Not something the U.S. has any business getting involved in.

    Though it will most likely play out something like this:

    Drop a few missiles, spend a few billion, kill Assad, and the regime can declare a major foreign policy victory while leaving the mess to sorted out for posterity. Libya Ad Nauseam.

    Since Russian-U.S. relations are already at a low and the Arab world hates the U.S. regardless, such a scenario won’t have much of a deleterious effect for perception of the U.S. It would further confirm Arab resentment of the U.S. as meddlesome.

    One radical regime would likely be replacing another, or instability will replace instability in another form. So whatever treasure is spent on the adventure would be wasted. Bombs won’t solve Syria’s problems.

    The less likely possibility would be something like this:

    U.S. troops on the ground engaged in nation building for Syria. Right next door to Israel, in the middle of a hot bed of intractable conflict.

    Iraq Ad Nauseam on cocaine. No good can come of this.

    • Colin

      Or Syria could turn into a proxy war, with the United States supporting one side and Russia supporting the other side.

        That is already case. Iran and Russia are supporting the Assad regime while the west supports the FSA.

    Why do you say “the Assad regime is horrible”? Assad was working as an ophthalmologist in London when his brother died and the military asked him to take charge to avoid a civil war. He realized there was a great deal of resentment against his family’s rule, and put together a commission to rewrite the Constitution which was approved by over 60% of Syrians by an over 80% majority. The army of Syria is made up mostly of Sunni conscripts and enjoys the support of the vast majority of the people fighting against terrorist mercenaries paid by Saudi Arabia and Qatar. If left alone, Assad’s government would be the model of a secular democratically elected constitutional state. What else could Assad do to convince you that he’s OK?
