Skip to comments.White House Admits It Has NO Allies For Syria Attack—A Coalition Of One
Posted on 09/08/2013 5:02:43 PM PDT by markomalley
Recently WSJ reported on John Kerrys claim that the number of countries supporting a U.S. attack on Syria reached double digits but Kerry failed to name any.
JihadWatch noted the following:
Liechtenstein? Luxembourg? Andorra? San Marino? Monaco? Seychelles? Tuvalu? Tannu Tuva? No, not even them. Kerry didnt name them because he doesnt have them. He is bluffing.
Apparently, McDonough has a similar problem. In a CNN interview with White House Chief of Staff, Dennis McDonough was repeatedly pressed by Candy Crowley to provide examples of countries that will endorse or provide personnel or equipment for a military intervention in Syria. McDonough emphasized other nations condemnations of Syria but no specifics on support for intervention. The key WH strategy seems to be the repeated memo phrase: Holding him [Syria] to account, and vague references of support.
At the end of interview, Crowley clarifies the word support is referring to moral support more than anything else.

JihadWatch reports the following:
Confirmation from the White House itself that John Kerry was lying when he said that the number of countries supporting the U.S. had reached double digits. White House Admits Its a Coalition of One, by Patrick Brennan at National Review, September 8:
When asked this morning if the U.S. has any pledges of military support for strikes in Syria, White House chief of staff Denis McDonough emphasized that the G20 and other nations have made supportive condemnations of the Syrian governments actions, but repeatedly pressed by CNNs Candy Crowley, provided no examples of countries that have endorsed or will provide personnel or equipment for a military intervention.
He wouldnt explicitly admit that the U.S. actually has no allies willing to provide support, saying, youre trying to get me to say that, but Im not going to say it. There is specific support from the EU and others, he said, for holding Syria accountable.
McDonough argued it was encouraging that a number of other countries and even a former president of Iran have come around and agreed that the U.S. has made a convincing case that the Syrian regime used chemical weapons in August.
And yet Washermouth still gets elected
If they say “we” it’s the royal we.
She brings home the bacon, apparently.
Coalition of the Missing
al Qaeda ALONE supports the White House.
“Fortunately” for terrorism, the US Congress is CLUELESS
and the US Pentagon is LAME, as on 911 the pRes_ _ent
makes a case for .... protecting, defending, and further
arming al Qaeda (before it promises to deliver
death to America and its allies).
BOzo is what BOzo does.
A coalition of the nuttin’?
There may be other countries who offered to “hold our coat” while we go in and do the fighting, but that’s about it.
-— And yet Washermouth still gets elected -—
One. 24. What difference does it make?
That would be a ‘disassociation.’
So other countries were for it, before they were against it?
Her constituents are idiots.
What if John Kerry gave a war and nobody came?
Not “hold muh beer”?
Must be Bush’s fault somehow.
Hmmm. I guess Candy didn’t get the transcript in time.
Test Global Jean Fraud Kerry?
He ,Axelrod , Kerry, and Wasserman stand alone .. and lie to the public
They have silenced the anti-war movement and the racial grievence folks until they can spoonfeed them their propoganda
The Amercian voter and the Armed Forces are bieng hoodwinked by lies and deception.
OBombers buddies are burning ,raping , killing, and beheading innocent civilians
Tweleve years ago , his buddies who OBomber has armed flew planes into the Twin Towers ,
and now he wants us to launch missles to protect them and advance their cause .
Syria is in a civil religious war, with no side being our friend, that has been going on for over two years .
Stay out of it !
May as well go home
As I did on my own
Alone again, naturally
So he went to a gay bar and asked for a bottle.
He would take a swig, then poor a libation on his hand.
“I’m getting my date drunk.” he said to the puzzled bartender.
you mean pour
I’ll take three fingers, thanks.
Wow, the entire world is racist!!
Of all the talk radio guys, only Hugh Hewett supports military intervention in Syria. Does anybody actually listen to that guy? On the rare occasions when I get to listen to talk radio on the radio instead of the internet, his show bleeds in because they have a powerful signal right here in town. And he’s extremely boring. He’s got this droning, monotone voice, and all the wit and personality of a mummified bog man.
I thought the Frogs were on board. Have they already run up the white flag?
It may be that Kerry is telling the truth with the “double digits” figure for countries supporting a U.S. strike (diplomatically, not materially with military commitment), but is not mentioning the names because a list of Sunni majority Muslim states plus France would make obvious the fact that the Obama administration is actually taking sides in the 1400-year old Sunni/Shia bloodfeud.
There's no one
Just me onry
Sitting on my rittle throne
I work rearry hard and make up great prans
But nobody ristens, no one understands
Seems like no one takes me serirousry
And so I'm ronery
A rittle ronery
Poor rittle me
I can rerate to
Feel rike a bird in a cage
It's kinda sihry
But not rearry
Because it's fihring my body with rage
I'm the smartest most crever most physicarry fit
But nobody else seems to rearize it
When I change the world maybe they'll notice me
But until then I'rr just be ronery
Rittle ronery, poor rittle me
I'm so ronery
NBC has pledged to support Obama with six aircraft carriers and a guy with a broom.
last week prager was for it. very disappointing as i think he is the most thoughtful host on talk back radio.
Obamas interest in invading non-enemy Syria has nothing to do with Syria, poison gas, or children.
Obamas interest in bombing non-enemy Syria has everything to do with creating a long-lasting, controversial, DISTRACTION for Congress in order to keep Congress from defunding Obamacare/Boehnerkare.
Obamas Red Herring for the 9-11 Benghazi Massacre Coverup was Susan Rices fake Video story.
Obamas Red Herring for distracting Congress until Obamacare/ Boehnerkare kicks in October 1 is Obamas Crossing HIS personal Red Line distraction speech.
Obama speaks only for Obama, not the US Federal Government or America.
