Posted on 12/03/2012 2:58:02 PM PST by Olog-hai
President Barack Obama gave Syrian President Bashar Assad a stern warning Monday after U.S. officials told CBS News the Syrian regime has shown signs that it may be making chemical weapons material. Both officials spoke on the condition of anonymity, although President Obama spoke publicly about the possibility of chemical weapons in a speech at National Defense University Monday.
President Obama said he wanted to be absolutely clear to Assad that the world is watching, CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller reports.
The use of chemical weapons is totally unacceptable and if you make mistake of usingthere will be consequences and you will be held accountable, the president said.

Ooooooooo....what a tough guy. /s
Not likely Obama will do anything about it.
If he dares to use those chemical weapons, Obama is gonna send him a really, really, really stern letter.
Just setting up the false flag. We have our “friendly” terrorists ready to set off a chem event and then we use it to flatten what’s left of Assad. Then we install another Moosie Brohood dictatorship. They have to paint the picture first, which is where we are now.
The “law and diplomacy” here is striking. Assad, while a tyrant, is the non-MB tyrant. Øbama is itching to have a rationale to align US forces with MB forces, and against non-MB forces. These steps are inching towards a US fighting, even if by proxy, against Israel.
Hey, we were told ad nauseam that Saddam had no WMD’s. What’s this?
If Syria uses chemical weapons, Assad risks getting a sternly-worded letter from Obama!
Dang! You beat me to it.
While it is true that the USA is actively supporting people who want to kill you we’d like to ask you not to use any chemical weapons or else we’ll get REALLY cross with you.
ooo, I’m scared. Really scared. /sarc
Gonna be consequences and repercussions (Language warning)
So what’s O going to do- put O on his Naughty List?
Obama could care less if someone gets gassed (or shot or blown up or stabbed). All he wants is an excuse to pull a Libya and get the terrorists in charge or if not in charge, then running amok and killing our ambassador.
He wouldn’t write the stern letter, he’d ask the UN to do it.
Go get em’ Barry! I sure hope this doesn’t interfere with your 4 million dollar Hawaii escapade.
Exactly what I was thinking... I just used these quote today...ah, great movies are a bygone now-a-days...
yep.... I can hear him now in the Oval Office speech:
“The future does not belong to those who use chemical weapons”
There I saved his cracker jack speech writers some time.
He’s SO full of shite...unless this IS the ploy for a third term...
How’s that Arab Spring workin’ for ya, Barry?
Yeah I bet Assad is crapping his pants right now as we speak
I wonder will Obama be “Flexible” with Assad like he wants to be with Putin..Obama wanted this, he wanted the Muslim Brotherhood to be in total control, for there to be Sharia Law, well now he has it and he has to pretend that he doesn’t want this
Maybe he can use NBC Sunday night football commentary as a deterrent.
The damn thing has sprung a leak. What a shocker!
More toothless baloney from Obama.
There isn’t a foreign leader on Planet Earth who doesn’t know by now that America’s feckless, gormless, but big-talking president is an utter wimp.
Obama has “fundamentally changed” our policy in the Middle East. Over the past, I don’t know, 100 years or so we have tacitly supported many bad folks, dictators, in the Middle East. Because they ran secular goverments. Right or wrong, I don’t know. But to have the terrorists in charge is just....either stupid, ignorant or worse part of a plan to establish a Caliphate.
In 4 short years he has undone the foreign policy of the past 100 years. I hope it all blows up before he leaves office. I hope a lot of things blow up before he serves out his term. But, probably not. He’ll be gone, living the high life and someone else will have to pick up the pieces.
So long as Assad does not convert to being a Republican - he has nothing to worry about.
Just impossible to guess what people like Obama might actually do
Kind of a “Spring” is “Sprung” kinda thingy.
That ain’t happening, Fascists love the American Democrat.
Sonofagun! That’s what I was going to write! Great minds...
No there won’t. 0coward won’t do anything.
Oh, oh....I get it! Lol
Just finished “Happy Hour” here...3 oz.s of medicinal brandy..
Valerie already has her letter written. She will tell Obama when to send it.
“If Syria uses chemical weapons, Assad risks getting a sternly-worded letter from Obama!”
Scribbled on the back of his scorecard.
How dare you say he won't do anything! Chrissie Matthews is reporting that Obobo is prepared to place an embargo on all PEPSI products and all HOSTESS products, SO THER ! Take that Syria !
Oohh, stamping his widdle feet and waving his widdle arms demanding compliance does not change the fool that Obama is.
An embargo on Hostess products, which don’t exist anymore, sounds about right for 0bobo.
