Spare us the dramatics, Mr. President.
In a propaganda campaign Barack Obama is justifying his imminent attack against Syria by "showing the world newly declassified intelligence files that revealed how [the government] slaughtered at least 1,429 of its own people -- including 426 children -- with poison gas" as reported by the New York Post.
Of course the images of innocent civilians including children getting gassed is horrific, and there is no defense of that monster Bashar Assad who calls himself the Syrian President. However, the American people should not be emotionally manipulated into supporting another U.S.-led war in the Middle East by cheaply invoking the children.
Indeed, if the Obama Administration is as disturbed by murdered or otherwise victimized children as it purports then maybe it should ramp up police forces against the street gangs which violently rove throughout United States exploiting kids.
For example, in the Morrisania section of the Bronx street gangs are recruiting "boys as young as 9 or 10" to join their ranks as reported by WNYW. Similarly, a street gang in Suffolk County, NY is recruiting boys as young as nine years old as reported by Kevin Deutsch for Newsday: "police investigators believe that the gang's older members have sought out young neighborhood kids who 'show potential' for membership." Of course, a number of these gang juvies wind up dead, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention admits that "gang homicides account for a substantial proportion of homicides among youths in some U.S. cities" according to a recent report.
So if it's really all about the kids, President Obama, then why not flex some muscle to take out the killer gangs on America's streets? Charity begins at home.
If you ask me, the person responsible for the gas attack in Syria is not Assad but Obama.
In volleyball, when the ball comes to your side, rather than return it directly, you lob it up to your own team mate who then jumps up and SPIKES it down on the opposition. This is what Obama did with his "red line" remark. What American would ever even use such an expression? We say "line in the sand" but let's lay that aside for the moment. When he said that he was simply telegraphing to Al Qaeda what they needed to do to secure the interjection of American forces into the fight.
America’s murdered kids? Are we talking about the boys that women’s lib said did not need fathers’ influence? Are we talking about the boys who acted like boys in school and were given Ritalin, which made their brains shrink? Are we talking about boys who attended public schools that did not require discipline or academic achievement? Are these the children we are talking about?
500 murders in Chicago in 2012, 435 by gun
where is John Kerry’s outrage?
maybe Syria should send in a strike on Chicago to send a strong message (sarc)
when was the last time zerO and the missus went “home” and took the kids out for a walk on his city streets after dark?
Because that doesn't fit in with the lefty agenda.
barry doesn’t mind the incredibly high abortion rate of black babies, so why should an insignificant # of shootings, as compared to the abortion rate, be of any consequence to him? move on along.....there’s nothing here.
Muslims killing Muslims is a good thing. Thugs killing thugs is a good thing. Muslims killing Infidels and apostates and thugs killing non-thugs, not so much.
