Whenever the likes of Barack Obama, John Kerry, and Nancy Pelosi begin to toot the tocsin of war, you can be sure that it will never be in America’s national interest to unlimber the caissons. This unholy triumvirate of socialist peaceniks couldn’t coax flatulence from a plate of baked beans, let alone rally a reluctant public and a recalcitrant Congress to sanction armed force against a country that, despite its alleged domestic sins, has committed no hostile act against us. But since Obama considers the Constitution an impediment, the military “his,” and the citizens who unaccountably placed him in office his vassals, no action except impeachment is likely to stay the presidential fist. Even the alarming facts that our military is moneyless and the British aren’t coming is not likely to dissuade this clueless Caesar of Connecticut Avenue.
Especially since there’s a modicum of evidence and even more speculation that the whole sordid scenario was engineered in the first place by Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood:
Whispers growing in D.C. of the possibility Libyan chemical weapons were part of the gunrunning operation out of Benghazi. Small amount to be used by rebel forces to create favor among American public for a more “robust” military intervention …
Assad had no reason to use those weapons and in such a small amount. For what purpose? He is apparently winning the civil war by a wide margin. Rebel forces were disintegrating. Russia was providing continued support. Why do something that had no logistical benefit but would only give the United States reason to intervene?
Libya had stores of such weapons. From Benghazi to Turkey and then to the Syrian rebel forces which are for the most part being led by Al-Qaeda and factions of the Muslim Brotherhood…
Was also told another thing right after Kerry did his tears of terror talk today. He was so certain of who fired the missiles and where, and when. He had absolutely no doubt on the Intel. Funny how for days and weeks after Benghazi they didn’t have a clue and then excused all their so called mistakes to the “fog of war.” That doesn’t make sense to me. They want Americans to believe they are so right on Syria while accepting their reasons for being so wrong on Benghazi …
This seems too much, even for this administration, but some people are quietly making some very compelling cases that it might really have happened.
UPDATE: Surprise! Obama’s going to Congress for approval to strike Syria. Which means the fix is probably in. But, just in case, he says he nevertheless has the authority under his executive powers to arbitrarily launch such a military assault. The Constitution, of course, does not support such action, but Obama has never much bothered with Constitutional niceties. Stay tuned.
UPDATE#2: A senior State Department official tells Fox News the president’s decision to take military action in Syria still stands, and will indeed be carried out, regardless of whether Congress votes next week to approve the use of such force. (Gretawire)
