Skip to comments.WH: "No," Syria WMD warnings were not a bluff
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.

Yoda: Convinced I am not
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Ask a poker player if he's bluffing, and chances are, he'll say NO.
Not that CarneyCo would understand poker.
0bamugabe is on TV right now weaseling out of it.
I don’t really care if they used chemical weapons are not. Both sides are scum. We should leave it alone.
Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha, right, and I'm the Easter Bunny.
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
We should leave it alone.
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.
Strongly worded letter to the UN coming soon
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.
Syria got (Husein’s) Iraq’s WMD.
If soetoro can figure out how the murders of more Americans can be facilitated, he’ll persue that policy with breathless gusto.
Neither does Barry "Don't call my bluff" Obamy.
McCain hasn’t heard of a place he doesn’t want to nation build in.
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.
Can we use the word quagmire, or is that only when POTUS is a Republican?
~~ B. H. O'Bluffer
Obama adopted the “Bush Doctrine”?
Wasn’t this what Obama claimed wasn’t enough o go into Iraq?
Will CIndy Sheman be camped out in a ditch somewhere?
Cindy Sheehan dared to criticize BJ Clinton’s wife and hasn’t been heard from much since.
Oh no! Not that! Next thing you know obummer will stamp their ID cards “no desert.”
Just one more time and Obama will definitely unfriend Assad on Facebook.
Looks like you, Yoda and me are on the same page here. I’m kinda interested in how he responds when he draws a line in the sand and someone crosses it. Maybe another line with an “I really, REALLY mean it this time.” threat. Meh. Talk is all he has.
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.
What’s the obomination administration going to do, write a stern letter. Threaten to send naked pictures of Hillary in a propaganda bomb?
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.
Code Pink? WMDs! Please pick up the white courtesy phone.
They musta traveled back to that time warp that NOW got lost in during the Clinton years.
So, let’s do the time warp again ....
Carney may well understand “poker”, but you probably wouldn’t want to know the context...
I totally agree. Zer0, however, is now weakening us even further by trying to play Billy Badass and not following through.
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.
I’m baffled as to why any American would want us involved there. I would have thought that 12 straight years of war would eliminate interventionist stupidity.
Code Pink isn’t available for comment.
Plenty of hate on both sides.
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?
Agreed. I especially don’t want us there with chicken shit ROE’s. There is no good side in a country full of Muslims.
“Looks like you, Yoda and me are on the same page here. Im kinda interested in how he responds when he draws a line in the sand and someone crosses it. Maybe another line with an I really, REALLY mean it this time. threat. Meh. Talk is all he has.”
The Iranians are on their third or fourth final warning. This time, they are taking it seriously. No, really.
So is the US going to try to assassinate him agaian ? What is that now, about three times he has been killed. That man has more lives then fritz the cat.
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.
The UNMOVIC report called them precursors, accelerants and dual use materials.
The term “Chemical Weapons” is no longer allowed.
Is there anyone here who will step up and defend what this country has become under the Obama Administration?
