the Obama administration prepared for a possible military response by moving naval forces closer to Syria.
Obama discussed the situation in Syria by telephone with British Prime Minister David Cameron, the White House said. It was Obama's first known conversation with a foreign leader about Syria since the reports this week that hundreds of Syrians had been killed by the alleged chemical attack in a suburb of Damascus, the capital.

This message came to me concerning Damascus: Look, Damascus will disappear! It will become a heap of ruins. The cities of Aroer will be deserted. Sheep will graze in the streets and lie down unafraid. There will be no one to chase them away. The fortified cities of Israel will also be destroyed, and the power of Damascus will end. The few left in Aram will share the fate of Israels departed glory, says the Lord Almighty. Isaiah 17:1-3 (NLT)
Hell Yeah, now we can show them heathens how tough are gay and women fighters are.
Well, this source ain’t Debka but it might be accurate
Have to disagree with you. We could have taken out Iran in 2009 without firing a shot. Obama sided with the Imans over the people.
Interesting. if that’s the case this may end the Iran proxy wars.
sure wish Bush was here.
Oh, Obama said “I don’t need no Steenkin Congress!” don”t you know.
I’m starting to like ron Paul...yikes!
This war was not planned 12 years ago. It might have been war gamed..but not planned. How do I know? Because any plan to remove Syria would not have consisted on setting the whole region on fire first...like Obama has done. We would not have put the Muslim Brotherhood and AQ in power in Egypt and Libya first. We would not have armed a bunch of Islamist terrorists and sent them in to Syria first where they could lay in wait for our own troops. It is insanity to think that Obama is following some predetermined goal made 12 years ago under the Bush administration.
It makes no sense, unless our goal is to lose the war.
P-800 Yakhont launch, 20 seconds:
“This war was preplanned 12 years ago.
Please post a source for this important information.”
Whether or not this was preplanned 12 years ago, I have no idea.
However, at the time I thought to myself that after Iraq, Syria would be next and then Iran would all fall like dominoes although it would be a very slow process. It is much slower than I had anticipated.
I am not agreeing with Deathtomarxists nor disagreeing with you. I’m simply stating what went through my mind in 2003.
There. Fixed it.
In 1959, Pat Frank’s novel, “Alas Babylon” started WWIII in Syria..
One Russian Soldier dies or one Chinese Soldier dies we could have a real problem.
Obama is emperor Palpatine. With that commie in charge of the US War Machine I fear he cannot be stopped.
I’m certainly 100% against getting involved in Syria, but I’m not about to share any of my ‘protest’ space with any grubby, dopehead hippie scum. They’re the Obama-voting idiots that helped turn this country into such a tyrannical cesspool. I’d just as soon ship them off to Syria to meet up with those “rebel” al-Qaeda jihadists that Obama so lovingly supports. And then see how many of them manage to get back with their heads still attached.
There's a lot more “maneuvering” left to do....even Cameron said they'll be putting together a document with the UN to give Assad one more chance....so this has far to go yet.
