I am read post 4
J (I served in Vietnam)Kerry “ The US position on the Syrian regimes use of chemical weapons couldn’t be more perfectly vague”.
yes he did and nothing
+ Obama is great at escapism...
Interesting....UN inspectors will not say who is responsible for the chemical attacks. Will not assign blame. (Per Jonathon Hunt/Fox)
Obama was on the golf course Sunday so all those “conversations” that Lurch says have been taking place must have been in the hot tub after.... NOT. VJ is running the show over at the WHut.
“We have additional INFO ABOUT the attack and that is being compiled and reviewed...and we will provide in days ahead.”
Not WHO used them.
“The UN investigation will not determine WHO used the weapons...only that they were used.”
Assad guilty by NO evidence -— only that they denied permission for Un inspectors. Now that Assad has, Kerry says “it’s too late.”
Move the sliding scale——NO EVIDENCE!
WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE WHO USED THE CHEM WEAPONS!
Yes..Benghazi figures in this somehow. I always said from beginning I thought it was about WMDS in Benghazi.. Not just missile/arms running. Obama could have withstood criticism of shipping arms to ‘rebels’ in Syria..but he would never be able to withstand shipping chemical weapons or allowing chemical weapons to fall into the hands of terrorists.
cause they were told not to and they know we wire tap em anyway
if you read the link in post 4...written well before today you will see what you just heard....that’s sayin sumpthin
That desecrated flag makes me retch. 0bama’s mug is more suited for toilet paper.
see post 108 for some direct quotes.
Kerry said “info about” -— not evidence.
This is high stakes lying by this WH and if they are in on it....it will spell the end of Obama and the entire democrat party.
Kerry didn’t really present the evidence, but he made it sound like the evidence in “days to come” would be a slam dunk.
And when THAT evidence is presented you can be sure the use a chemical weapons will be “frowned upon”
A total waste of time, but I only watched the last minute or two.
SKeery is a pathetic joke, right along with his CIC and dirt bag pal McCain.
Jay Carney is due in a few....his smartass soundbites and media questions will fill in the gaps for what we already know
I realize now that I love Big Brother!
From what I can read here since I couldn’t watch, this clown lived down to our exact expectations. These idiots never cease to amaze me.
WH Zombie Hour to begin at 3 pm. Late, as usual.
On StratFor's twiiter, I read it was the Rebels.. Gee, knock me over with a feather NOT
It is called the Taranto Principle, named after he who coined the principle, the inimitable James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal.
According to the Taranto Principle, the left-wing media, in their fawning suck-ups of left-wing politicians, only encourage the pols' worst instincts: encouraging Jean-Francois Kerry's sophomoric wind-surfing during his presidential race or Howard Dean's blood-curdling scream upon losing the Iowa caucuses.
And then there is President Barack Obama (gag).
Obama might say "the earth is flat," and the left-wing press will generously indulge him, thus encouraging him to ever-greater pratfalls.
Or this '60s cartoon figure, Clutch Cargo.
Nothing. Even the normal Obama pabulum would have more substance. How many zeroes can we afford in the Cabinet?
And further, a “strongly-worded statement” will be issued...
Right on cue ...
Syria strategy cant rely solely on military might
But the fact that Syria offers no perfect outcomes or options does not mean that all possible outcomes are equally undesirable. It remains in the United States interest now as two years ago to see more moderate forces prevail. This cant be achieved with one or two volleys of cruise missiles. It will require patience and commitment.
The United States cant dictate the outcome in Syria, and it would be foolish to send ground troops in an effort to do so. But by combining military measures with training, weapons supplies and diplomacy, it could exercise considerable influence. The military measures could include destroying forces involved in chemical weapons use and elements of the Syrian air force that have been used to target civilians, as well as helping to carve out a safe zone for rebels and the civilian populations they are seeking to protect.
Such military action should be seen as one component of a policy that finally recognizes a U.S. interest in helping to shape Syrias future.
That is a little too ‘out there’ for me, but there may be some nuggets in there regardless.
I buy extra so I never run out.
UN inspectors visit site of alleged Syria chemical attack despite sniper fire
.... Officially Washington, London and Paris say they have incontrovertible evidence that the Syrian government is behind the chemical attack in Damascus, but they have not yet presented this evidence. Yet, they keep saying that the red line has been crossed, Lavrov said during an emergency press conference in Moscow
Thank you so much, dearest maggief!!!
“This is high stakes lying by this WH and if they are in on it....it will spell the end of Obama and the entire democrat party.”
I don’t see how that will ever be proved.
McCain has on his full-dress warpaint. Kerry is positively glowing with his own “importance.”
The ground is pulsing with the war drumbeat.
The die is cast. It doesn’t matter WHO used the chems or where they came from, the “int’l community” realizes this is the opportunity to go get them and bury all of those pesky questions.
Meanwhile, what does Iran have to do to get attention?
So, the 30 minute delay was productive after all.
"I'm getting a new brain transplant tomorrow."
c span will replay it
If he's planning on speaking at all, I'd say the chances are approximately 100%.
It wasn’t a delay. They lied about the timing of Obama and Kerry. For once, Obama was on time. It was planned that way.
Iraqi Chemical WMDs sent by Saddam to Libya before our Iraqi invasion, sold through “our guys” in Libya after Ghaddafi fell, to the most radical elements of the Syrian “opposition”, and used by them, undercover, now, while pointing fingers at Assad, to justify our greater involvement on their behalf.
From day one the Syrian “opposition” - internally much weaker than everyone outside Syria believes - has known that creating more martyrs is the only way to boost their own legitimacy and woo support from the west.
More allah crackbar footage.
Do you know where I can find them?
“.....as well as helping to carve out a safe zone for rebels and the civilian populations they are seeking to protect.”
Who are they kidding here? These ‘rebels’ are AQ terrorist and are killing civilians, some even going so far as to dine on their hearts for crying out loud!! This is ridiculous, but I am sure the bleeding hearts will swallow it hook line and sinker. Our country is doomed
then commit it to memory...trust this ole fart....hell is comin
let me ax you this.....Einstein said E=MC2 is not the greatest energy, compound interest is
what is the compound interest now ?
Iran ? Valeries people ?
I hear you, but we have to pray that the truth will come out if our own government was in on this...it is too evil if true. Someone, somewhere will leak it.
