WH: "No," Syria WMD warnings were not a bluff
cbs ^ | 4/26/13 | staff

Posted on 04/26/2013 11:33:58 AM PDT by Nachum

"No," said White House press secretary Jay Carney, Syrian President Bashar Assad should not doubt how serious the United States is about responding to evidence that the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons against its own people - but Carney added that we need to "build on" that evidence to be certain and would not provide a timetable for that investigation.

Well, of course.

Ask a poker player if he's bluffing, and chances are, he'll say NO.

Not that CarneyCo would understand poker.

In order to prove how 'serious' Obama is, he had John Kerry send the Syrian government this picture.

Will someone please explain to me how simply smuggling chemical weapons across the border from Iraq into Syria automatically turned those chemical weapons into WMD’s? That’s a neat trick. /s

Amen brother. We need to stay out of these hell holes. McCain is proving his senility and stupidity for trying to goad the Obama administration into openly intervening on one side—and, in the long term, the unintended consequences could be catastrophic and ruinous.

I disagree. We should send some very well-known and respected public figure who knows what he is talking about to the UN and set the international stage for an invasion, like Colin Powell or Bill Clinton. That's what our Nobel Peace Prize winning pretend president should do.

McCain is proving his senility and stupidity for trying to goad the Obama administration into openly intervening on one side—

It is often remarked that the military and its veterans are the most reluctant to enter another war.

McCain is the exception that proves the rule. There has not been a local conflict -- from the Balkans to the Levant to the Pacific -- that McCain has not tried to get our military involved in.

So, retire already, you senile old coot.

It wasn’t that they moved from Iraq to Syria that transformed them into WMDs,

it was the transfer of power from a Republican president to a democRat president that changed them into WMDs.

Right on. Both sides are anti-American haters. Neither side is friendly to us, so why should we care that two of our enemies are killing each other?

There is ZERO national interest in going into Syria. None. Let them kill each other off, the world will be better off for it.

Let me be the first then to stand up and say the following:

I encourage ALL U.S. Military Personnel to refuse any direct or indirect order eminating from the President of the United States, or Military Command to step one foot inside Syria or any country bordering it.

Under NO circumstances should any U.S. Military Member follow the orders of this corrupt Muslim White House. Period.

That is all.

This Syria thing is dragging on. I guess it takes time to get Iraq’s WMD out of Syria and into Iran. Either that or Assad is running low on Krylon and “Made in Syria” stencils.

Yep, Muzzie Bros vs. Iran.

No one for the US to support.

Democrats cannot win a war it’s proven.
IF Halaburton benefited from Iraq Who is the receipient now
of the wealth we are spending on Afghanastan!
We know this cannot be won and troops should have been pulled two years ago but we still roam that quagmire for no reason. No need to wait till 2014 pull those kids out now and leave that desolate place of hell.
Allow syria to use there weapons from Iraq that do not exist!
Maybe the winds will blow Irans way?

The Iranians are on their third or fourth final warning. This time, they are taking it seriously. No, really.

Why is Obama dragging his feet? Well its because he does not want to question asked “where do these WMDs come from?( Answer: Iraq, you know the weapons that the Dems criticized Bush for , saying they did not exist!). Syria does not have the ability to manufacture WMDs, it can only store them.

So Obama is now going to start Vietnam II in Syria? Or he will fold like the wet noodle he is and watch Israel be attacked with these same WMDs, which originally were made in Iraq, spirited out of Iraq by the Russians and French just before the US invasion of Iraq and the subsequent liberation of 53 Iraqis by George W Bush.. Obama is a hateful president who now will do hateful things to America.

Obama is a fascist; he passes every known historical test for fascism from history, including history written by Winston Churchill, who had to fight the bastards.Now we must fight them once again.

Excellent read:

The UNMOVIC report called them precursors, accelerants and dual use materials.
The term “Chemical Weapons” is no longer allowed.
