Obama on Syria: 'I have not made a decision'
Politico ^ | 8/28/13 6:07 PM EDT | JENNIFER EPSTEIN |

Posted on 08/28/2013 5:40:54 PM PDT by BenLurkin

Administration officials have made clear that Obama isn't angling for "regime change" with any intervention, a point he touched upon as he stressed that the goals of the United States and its allies are less dramatic. He's considering "limited, tailored approaches, not getting drawn into a long conflict, not a repetition of, you know, Iraq, which I know a lot of people are worried about," he said.

It is not your decision to make Hussein.

There is no immediate threat to American interests and there is more than adequate time to consult Congress -- whose decision it is.

Correct, the rebel terrorist groups are more a threat to us than Assad...And it should be a decision from Congress.

I guess his battalion of White House fellators are afraid to tell him how ridiculous he’s making himself look. How much of a pussy do you have to be to make the French look like badasses?

This is a decision between Stalin and Hitler. As evil as Stalin is, Hitler is more murderous so, I choose to fight for Stalin. I’ll deal with Stalin after the Hitler threat has been eliminated.

The Nobel Peace Prize Committee is chosen by the Norwegian Parliament which was in full blown BDS at the time. That factored in as much as the Hopey Dopey they were smoking.

I searched on that and the only hits on the latin expression were from you! I guess that’s “An image has the strength of a thousand voices” i.e. “A picture is worth a thousand words.” ... It’s a little different, though!

At last night’s WH #mlkdream50 reception, the Obama’s met with Trayvon Martin’s family. It is believed to be their first meeting.

I'm not feeling so well today so may not stay around to
respond to folks. But perhaps this news from Gen Paul Vallely
(RET), who claims he has been in Syria for some time, should
at least be considered. You good folks decide how you want to
interpret what he had to say in a ten minute News Max interview.

Do please feel anyone to make a separate post on this one if
you deem it worth while
.
The video can be viewed at Gen. Paul Vallely to Newsmax: Assad Has Fled Syria
I'm not making light of it to be counter to how many of us feel
about the Kenyan goon. Perhaps what the General indicates may have some worth.
Do all have a pleasant evening and upcoming day.

VJ is only his handler. The decisions come from persons outside of the public façade which is Hussein’s administration.

While I do NOT want Obozo to lead us into another war, I have to remark after reading that he hasn't made a decision...

NO SH*T, SHERLOCK, you probably haven't made a single bloody decision in your entire life without being first TOLD what to think and do by some other radical JERK!

How can he just stand there and say he hasn’t made a decision? That is just so wimpy.

Embarrassing.

He's waiting for another country to make the first move, then jump on the bandwagon yelling "Me too, Me too" !

He's backed himself into a corner with his ignorant bluster of the 'red line'.

“Obama.... ‘I have not made a decision’.

The dimwit has never made a decision in his life, he just continues to vote “present” when not on another vacation.

If “regime change” isn’t the goal, what is? Oh? Emperor Obama wants to judge Assad guilty of breaking international norms? With evidence even flimsier than that used to go to war in Iraq?

How doe we know when we’ve accomplished that mission? I guess when the emperor leaves office, and that can’t happen soon enough.
