Apparently the job of the arab league is to figure out how to best convince someone else to deal with their internal problems.
I smell a “false flag” operation staged by the rebel New Syrian Army. It makes no sense for Assad to use chemical weapons.
Also from debka:
Israels Defense Minister Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Wednesday: “The use of chemical weapons by the regime is not a first. Even ousting Bashar Assad will not lead to the end of the Syrian conflict, since there are now battles between different factions in the country.”
Why does the security council even bother? We don’t really want to get involved and the Russians will veto anything substantive in any case. It seems rather pointless.
There appears to be an inching towards some sort of foreign intervention in Syria.
Something emotional like a large scale use of chemical weapons with many casualties would help that process along giving a rationale-excuse for Obama and others to get involved.
thanks to obama’s “reset” with russia i am certain we will have no trouble persuading putin to dump his long time ally.
is obama actually admitting that his “red line” has been crossed? haven’t seen that yet. he usually finds any excuse to prop up these animals as long as possible.
people can say what they will about the Iraq war, but it did have the nice result of bringing about the execution of Saddam Hussein.
This is the second time that someone in Syria has crossed the red line drawn by Obama. They better watch out over there. Obama means business. They better not cross the purple line, or the blue line. And then there’s the black line and the white line. And we could take Bo the Wonder Dog and have him pee while running, and hey, that would be a line.
There’s lots of lines. Not that I would want Obama to get involved in the Syrian mess. I just wish he would stay the heck out of it and stop supplying arms to either side. Anything he does will be botched. But he ought not to be drawing lines or threatening action.
No one anywhere takes the U.S. seriously any more after five years of Obama.
