Skip to comments.How the Prime Minister [UK] and John Kerry ambushed nervous Obama to force him to arm Syrian rebels
Posted on 06/15/2013 11:31:09 PM PDT by expat1000
David Cameron and US Secretary of State John Kerry secretly ganged up to persuade a nervous Barack Obama to back Britains bid to arm Syrian rebels, it was revealed last night.
The Prime Minister and Mr Kerrys diplomatic ambush of President Obama succeeded when they won his support for a showdown with Russias Vladimir Putin a key ally of Syrias President Assad when Mr Cameron hosts a G8 summit in Northern Ireland tomorrow.
Obamas surprise U-turn came 24 hours after Foreign Secretary William Hague slipped into Washington almost completely unnoticed to meet Mr Kerry. In recent weeks, while supporting Mr Obama publicly, Mr Kerry has told Mr Hague privately that he strongly backs Britains calls to get tough with Assad. But he could not win over the US President, who feared getting dragged into a repeat of the Iraq War.

Obama can’t WAIT to get us into that mess.
John kerry “forced” Obama to give arms to Al-Queda?!
Benghazi Barry can’t decide on a damned thing without asking Val first.
Obama does what he’s told to do.. nothing more nothing less..
He hasnt got the equipment to make decisions...
Chauncey Obama has never had leadership characteristics. He is a rabble organizer, a fomenter of dissonance used to exploit ‘the folks’. He is precisely what the puppet masters wanted in the White Hut to end the Republic. He is a drug-addled puppet. And will never be anything else.
There is not a speck of leadership between those 3 stooges.
britain is wholly owned by the saudis. obama does not like the saudis. It’s iran he has been protecting all along...in Afghanistan, Iraq. It’s why one of the very first things morsi did was reconcile with iran after decades.
Yeah right. The extra Jordan air cap that will now remain in place after the current Jordanian war games end, was sent well over a week ago.
And we will be fighting the Iraqis in Syria. Great job Obama/Hillary/Kerry !
Ping the old list.
I would guess VJ was in the meeting, or O met with her after.
Though the (countryless) fin. olig. has been working on the Syrian assimilation for years (so it is known by all players), at this particular juncture apparently the diplomatic trip had to be made to the US to create a record of an official diplomatic request being made, UK to US.
Thus, the US pResident’s handler can word some rationale to be included in the orders that will be written up by her staff for el pResidente to make his mark on.
Yes, Virginia, the US and UK gov’ts share a common puppetmaster guild.
Oh PUHLEEZE!! Obama was chomping at the bit to ARM AL QUEDA!!
What an absolute Crock this article is.
Obama wanted to arm Al Qaeda in Syria more than a year ago.
That was what half of the reason Stevens was in Benghazi.
0bama dithered, not wanting to lose more in the polls: Then two things happened:
1: Enough traitor rEpublicans (Like McCain) pushed for it so that he (0bama) can blame Congress for it when it comes back to bite the civilized world in the ass as it absolutely is certain to do.
2: The Domestic scandals erupted, making a nice distraction for him to go ahead and do what he always wanted.
All to little....to late!!! Yep....we got us an absentee, anti-American POTUS!!! The Ruskies (Putin) & Iranians have bested Obama!!! White House now says there will be no “free fly Zone” at all. Why??? The Ruskies have armed Assad with deadly, accurate anti-aircraft missles which would have the capability of destroying our airborne aircraft with a high success rate as they did in North Vietnam.
This is rally a civil war between Arab/Muslim factions. Obama is arming our enemies. They will use these arms against us and kill more innocent Americans. Obama is one of them, an absolute adoree of his beleoved “Muslim Brotherhood” hate America brethren. Americans are just plain fools!!!
Discourage your kids and grand grandchildren from serving under the Liar in Chief and his RAT cohorts who have no idea of what they’re doing. He’s messed up Iraq and Afghanistan is a disaster. He’s made the military into a mockery.
Lies and More Lies.
Obozo has been arming the rebels in Syria since before Gaddafi was killed.
Nobody except his masters “forced Obozo” to arm them. He dances to the tune of the house of Saud.
But now he has another "It's not my fault" excuse - he was ambushed and ganged up on...
Absolutely correct analysis. This will most certainly not end well, and as much as the Obama criminal syndicate bears responsibility, this likely could never have occurred with guys like John McCain. McCain has willingly given more political cover to protect Democrats, and caused more real damage than almost any other living politician.
Obamas surprise U-turn came 24 hours after Foreign Secretary William Hague slipped into Washington almost completely unnoticed to meet Mr Kerry.
Could you explain this:
Quite simply this is political insurance in case things go badly in Syria after American escalation —a virtual certainty.
MANPADS 4 AQ —how the heck could THAT go wrong, right...?
