“Obama administration is aiding jihadist in Egypt, Lybia, Ft Hood and now Syria”
May I add, he is aiding and abetting jihadist in every mosque in the USA ( In 2011 Dear Leader made it forbidden to use surveillance in mosques)

Military advisors are in Jordan and Israel now. No doubt they already slipped across, especially when they escorted John McCain into Syria, remember? Hell, we’re already there fighting.

Sickening, isn’t it?

“And where are the Russians and Iranians on this?
I don’t expect them to sit still while Obama
rams it up their butt.”

You have such a way with words. I’m laughing! You need your own cable show. Talk about being straightforward, wow!

Well, Saddam Hussein’s WMDs are finally being used.

As a result, we’re going to help Al Qaeda, Saddam’s allies.

Of course he has to get involved in a war to get attention away from all of the scandals. We will be fighting Russian troops this time, not second rate middle eastern troops. How can any good American soldier serve under this evil illegitimate dictator?

I concur.

This is spinning out of control, in every way possible.

When they say that innocents suffer under fools, I fully understand it now. How many more will die at the hands of the ‘rebels’ they want to arm/give aid to ALL in the interest of changing the topic.

he’s going to find out it’s hard to fight with only

Oh.... I see.... Obama has now completely morphed into George W. Bush...

Key difference: Bush at least tried to support those who were against islamic violence, whereas Zero loves to support those for islamic violence!

The only stake in this game that we have is to a) verify that Assad actually DID use chemical weapons, and then b) determine just where Assad came up with these chemical weapons. Could this be where Iraq's stash of weapons went?

Middle East and terrorism, occasional political and Jewish issues Ping List. High Volume

If you’d like to be on or off, please FR mail me.

Well, so be it, chemical weapons not being new news. As Samantha Power would tell the President, 90,000 dead, who cares, unless they used chemical weapons. Iran and Hizbollah having a substantial presence in this hemisphere for a long time, I'm sure we're ready for any reprecussions. After all, we have their phone calls. Assad is winning, which I suspect is the real issue. At least McCain admits it. In view of our forthcoming escalation, wonder what the USSR, sorry Russia, new people now, does. Wouldn't take much to pay us back for Afghanistan. Give the good terrorists weapons (money) to fight the bad terrorists (not that long ago folk like Nancy Pelosi thought Assad was the good terrorit), OK. Military force, not my choice but we better be prepared to win on behalf of our Sunni allies. Wonder if the Saudis and Egypt will ever use the arms we sell them for something other than attacking Israel. Call up the Turks too, they've got overwhelming force to put Assad to bed, and a base of operations in Turkey. Don't need us, don't even need the Euros.

It is obvious they will not question Emperor Zero because not one of them have asked Obama and his National Insecurity Agency what actual proof they have ? At least Bush sent Powell to the UN to present his case. The Obama drones now need no proof.

MSNBC will say the 100,000 Syrian’s murdered mean more than the 400,000 under Saddam in Iraq and that this is humanitarian. Although...both are essentially the same war.

And what is their excuse gonna be when WW III begins ? There will be millions dead. For what ? To try paint some clothes on Emperor Zero ? Come on. We deserve better then this. The world deserves better then this (hat tip Clint).

1. Gitmo - open

2. Drone strikes - 900% more

3. Leak prosecutions - 200% more than ALL others in all of US history

4. Wars - 3, now 4. Probably more we don’t know about.

5. MANPADS - 21,000 unaccounted for

6. Debt - up dramatically

7. OTHERS?

And where are the Russians and Iranians on this?

I fear we may soon find out two things:

1 - How well the Russian 4th generation aircraft and S-300 perform.

2 - How many Hezbollah sleeper cells there are within our borders.

Can we just say it now, since it’s obvious ?

Al-Qada is a CIA operation.

The US government keeps supporting Al-Qada in every revolution in the middle east.

Scary thought, that Al-Qada has been a CIA operation from the beginning, wayyyy back in the 1990’s.

National security, though, so no comment from any US government agencies, can’t confirm or deny.

Hey Foxnews, why not run with that story ?

Can they confirm or deny that Al-Qada is a CIA operation ?

Whistleblowers, do your thing !

And the president has been warning that “the window is closing ” on Assad—one way or another—since at least March 2012.

Obama himself redrew his “red line” for action in a White House press conference on Tuesday.
‘April 30,2012’”
He had previously said proof that Assad’s forces had used chemical weapons against the rebels would be a “game changer” that might lead him to consider the use of force. On Tuesday, he changed that standard, saying: “If I can establish in a way that not only the United States but also the international community feel confident is the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime, then that is a game changer.”

Very good points. And the reason this has been the very last pillar of stability that Obama has shattered, is because the risks as you pointed out can be catastrophic. And at this point in time, with these idiots leading the US, we have to assume that those risks will be catastrophic.

The thing is, Obama is so gung-ho about Syria, yet he did NOTHING when Khamenei/Ahmadinejad pulled a Tiananmen Square after the rigged election back in 2009 and slaughtered tons of people.

This is a Wag the Scandal situation. All he wants is death and destruction on the newspapers and web pages. Probably could care less which side wins (Sunni or Shiite).

If you are correct -- that al-Qaida from the beginning has been a CIA front -- then it would follow logically that the Truthers were right these past 12 years: 9/11 was an inside job in which one faction in the government attacked another faction.

That's a disturbing thought.
