The Kerry video will be streamed above during his remarks.

WASHINGTON—Secretary of State John Kerry will make a statement at 12:30 p.m. ET on the situation in Syria, the State Department said, as the U.S. prepares for unilateral military action to punish the regime of Bashar al-Assad for its alleged use of chemical weapons against civilians.

Mr. Kerry will make the statement from the State Department. His remarks follow an abrupt decision by the U.K. not to participate in any military action in Syria and amid calls from members of the U.S. Congress for more information about how the U.S. plans to respond.

If owebama orders an attack on Syria without the approval of Congress it will be an illegal order.

Will our military commanders (the perfumed princes of the Pentagon) who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States honor their oaths and refuse to carry out this illegal order? Do they care more about their commissions and their pensions than they do about the Constitution?

owebama is a domestic enemy of the United States Constitution. In a sane world he would be arrested and tried for treason.

Yeah, NSA, I wrote that.

Some things we know we can’t talk about.....used multiple times this year.....the regime....made preperations and precautions....we know because all hell broke loose in the SOCIAL MEDIA....the question is what are we going to do about it? It matters to our allies were the weapons are....they are watching what we will do ....our CREDIBILITY

I say bomb both sides and send the bill to the Sauuuuuudeees and then let them continue the killing....more dead Iranians and Hezzbolah everyday is a good thing. Better yet...get the Israelis to nuke the place.

We have that statement from his spokesweasel that it was likely a rogue commander and the sigint was the high command trying to find out what was going on. To me it is highly likely a commander went all general ripper and implemented wing attack plan R.

He’s so certain, yet wouldn’t take one question.

It sounds like the “shot across the bow” will be fired in a few hours.

I have a bad feeling that the Russians, the Syrians and the Iranians are going to call Bathhouse Barry’s bluff.

So, our illustrious POS president cannot even face the people and make his case...he sends out John F’in Kerry to do it. Kerry is the sec of state, not defense.

I did not hear Kerry make a case for invading Iraq because they gassed the Kurds. Interesting omission in going back to WW1.

One more interesting comment, so the lands of Jordan and others in the mid east are just a breeze away from Syria, indicating that some gas could make its way there, I wonder what they think will happen when the try to blow those stockpiles away?

I wonder if the UN guys will be able to trace the gas back to Iraq...maybe that is why they want no confirmation from the ground.

When the EAM comes in, I hope they return to sender on those ships at sea.

Why isn’t Congress called back?

I guess the same holds true for NATO, our closest allies, up till 2009 anyway, of Britain, Germany and Canada, and the electorate who want Congress to approve this folly.

Many of us were worried what would happen if this SOB was reelected, now he feels he has nothing holding him back. Failure by a narcissist cannot happen and as he gets mocked all the more he piles on the failures. We should send him back to Kenya FOB, Failure on Board.

“I’ve NEVER seen DrO shut off the TV more quickly and do it swearing.”

Probably no faster than me. I went into our family room, where our 25 year old tv is. I turned on Fox, and there was Kerry blabbering. I turned it of as fast as I could with a mild curse.

My wife said, “That was fast. Was that Obozo?”

I told her no, it was Kerry.

She laughed and asked if Jane Fonda was with him and if he was in Cambodia. I said no to both ?’s.

As Kirk Douglas said in the movie, In Harms Way, get ready for a gut wrenching, mother-lovin’ war starting tonight!
We’ll shoot off all our Tomahawks and then declare we can’t afford to make new missiles because of Republican budget cuts!
We won’t have enough troops left to provide ‘backup’ to all the chaos in the Middle Eastern End-Times-Volcano!
We’ll solve the unemployment problem at home by starting up the draft for both men AND women to fight in the front lines.
We’ll end the gun-control controversy by forcing them to bring their own weapons.
Unfortunately, DHS has all the bullets.
The Constitution will be declared null and void as marshall law is declared.
All “PHONY Scandals” will dissolve and we will seek protection from The One and his minions . . .
Stand By for September 11 around the world! ! !
TWA 800, World Trade Centers, and all other ‘terrorist’ acts will pale before the upcoming chaos around the world.
ALL the bad guys will also take advantage of the fog of war and true enemies will be blurred.
Be Prepared as Hope and Change is leading directly to THE END!

Thanks for the information and you’re right to point out that Kerry is the sec of state, not defense.

This ego-saving proposed attack on Syria can’t be justified using our “national security interests,” no matter how the regime tries to spin it.

God bless and keep you and God please spare our military from the Marxist’s personal use.
