Lee Smith is a tool

Assad did not launch that attack

This assumes the al qaeda led rebels didn’t launch their own chemical attack on their own people to blame Assad.

We don’t know.

They train their own people to blow themselves up. They put women and children in harm’s way to blame their deaths on Israel. There isn’t any tactic beneath them.

Maybe Obama meant ‘calculus’ in this sense: “A calculus (plural calculi) is a stone (a concretion of material, usually mineral salts) that forms in an organ or duct of the body.”

“What makes it unprecedented is less the violent furies raging across the region than the fact the commander in chief has to an unprecedented degree weakened America’s hand and sullied America’s reputation. With all his empty talk, the president who says he does not bluff has made America’s word cheap. “

It jumps over nuggets of truth... propaganda.

So far as I can tell, no motive has been put forward for the attack.

The dead lived in Damascus suburbs. What was their politics? Were the merely chosen to die and are innocent of strong stated allegiance to either side? Who would benefit from the deaths?

Don’t believe either side.

Does anyone outside of the Beltway and NY City believe anything written in the Standard?

A pox on all of the so called political experts on both sides who live in or around the Beltway or in NY City.

I am not convinced Assad fired any chemical weapons. The rebels themselves could have done it, or staged it in order to garner sympathy.

Look, Saddam Hussein DID kill the Kurds with chemical weapons. He did it, was proud of it, and the liberals WINKED and nodded...so I don’t buy the notion that the Clown is itching to stop some Islamofascist kook in Syria.

If there was such an attack, I don’t care who did it. The only message we should be sending those 6th century savages in the middle east is “screw with us again and we use our nukes”. Once a couple of their crap hole cities go up in balls of nuclear fire they’ll calm down for another few centuries.

We’re talking about a person (Obama) whose primary job was to do two things: bribe and intimidate.

That description is for a: COMMUNITY ORGANIZER

If you check out what community organizers do, you find that they don’t “govern” .. they organize marches on employers .. make demands (some demands so outrageous it puts the company [or country] out of business). Now, that’s really smart isn’t it .. while they’re busy intimidating the company, they don’t seem to realize they are destroying the livlihood for the majority of the people they’re organizing to march against the company. Hmmmm ..?? Isn’t that what we see in America today. The company [country] is in a sad state .. and all it’s citizens are out of work.

I worked for an electronics company in Silicon Valley. I was priviledged to know some of the people who started these companies. The unions tried and tried to get into the original companies, but they couldn’t. The people who owned Silicon Valley companies at that time were determined to keep the unions out. They succeeded for many years. And, Silicon Valley went wild.

Now, Silicon Valley is the mecca for the UNIONS. Funny thing, Silicon Valley has not thrived the way it could have mainly because it costs so much to keep the unions happy that you cannot expand your business .. and so they do nothing.

I’m glad I don’t live and work there anymore.

The unions have destroyed California; I hope they’re happy with their legacy .. over 4 million people have left the state.

Assad is not stupid enough to commit national suicide to kill a few hundred people. This is a false flag. It’s appearance is the same as the mushroom cloud over Iraq. Assad’s enemies want us to die for their cause. It’s just the sucking sound to bring us in. Obama’s red line was just an excuse to get involved. The country is in for another Bush war. God help us.
