Obama: 'My Military' Looking at Syria Options
Breitbart's Big Peace ^ | August 31, 2013 | Tony Lee

Posted on 08/31/2013 5:17:00 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

President Barack Obama referred to the country's troops as "my military" in Friday remarks about how the United States may respond to the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime in Syria that Obama asserted violated international norms.

"Now, I have not made a final decision about various actions that might be taken to help enforce that norm," Obama said. "But as I've already said, I have had my military and our team look at a wide range of options. We have consulted with allies. We've consulted with Congress. We have been in conversations with all the interested parties."

Obama also said he was not "considering any kind of military action that would involve boots on the ground, that would involve a long-term campaign," but he acknowledged, "we are looking at the possibility of a limited, narrow act that would help make sure that not only Syria but others around the world understands that the international community cares about maintaining this chemical weapons ban and norm."(continued)

Like Bill Clinton he never served a day in uniform. Hell, he probably didn't even register for Selective Service, as required.

They Tyrant is NOT an American.

and do NOT have 10 social security numbers.

Most of it is “his” military. He now owns the flag officers, his faggots are in uniform or out of uniform openly, women are now doing their combat fighting for them. Yes the military he has created is his military.

There are still a few left of our military, I hope when the SHTF they rise up with the rest of us.

Spoken like a true king, or one who thinks he is.

Zero is so delusional. I wonder how the "news" media would react if a Repub Prez referred to our armed forces as "his military".....

Even more, he’s NOT an American. Not being born in Hawaii but pretending to be, he’s never taken the steps to become legalized.

He’s a boot-licking butt licker. He refers to it as “MY” Military in the descriptive sense of it being made in ‘my image’, going from all voluntary to all LGBT, a military force once, the admiration of the world has now been degraded to the equivalent of Chelsea’s three ring freak show. If you’re not male when enlisted, you don’t have to be when you’re discharged. (Now, that’s a pun I’m not going near)

We could all relax since Obama and his national security adviser Susan Rice are in charge. Putin must be laughing his ass off at the joke he has as his opposition.

Forcing pride in anal obsession to kindergarteners and Boy Scouts too—to corrupt and collapse culture. Sexualization of children with perversion was Lukacs idea which he used to collapse Hungary.

Machiavelli stated that it is necessary to promote Virtue in militaries to keep power......and zero promotes Vice. I know the people who control that puppet in the WH, read everything that genius, Machiavelli, wrote. Promoting Vice will collapse the military like a rotten apple in a barrel.

For Freedom, all the Founders and geniuses since Socrates stated that for Free Republics, government has to promote Virtue....and Justice is the Queen of Virtues and sodomy promotes Vice—and the dehumanization of people—and reduces them to objects to be used.

Zero’s military is rococo.
By that, I don’t mean to say that they’re fabulous.
I mean to say—they’re baroque!
The warriors are demoralized and his
perfumed dandies can’t afford to pay attention.
Just golf and vacay. Stop pretending 0.

He also said in the same presser, or whatever that was that “I am the leader of the oldest constitutional democracy in the world.

We are NOT a Constitutional Democracy!!!!! We are a Constitutional Republic, NOT a democracy of any kind. For the very reason that is going on in our country right now. It is deliberately being turned into a Democracy, devoid a constitution!

Every time I hear one of our Congress people refer to us as a Democracy I want to scream! I have grown to expect it from the media, but Congress needs to get it act together and FAST!

Congress comes back September 9. I suspect that BO is going to ask Boner and The Dim Bulb From Searchlight to vote on authorization for military action against Syria first, then, win or lose, he’ll attack on September 11 so nobody will bother to note that it’s the anniversary of Benghazi.

Assad killing Syrian children is an atrocity, so Hussein is going to punish him by killing Syrian children.

Obama can’t wait to kill some kids to show the world he’s tough.

Sure he did — he registered for Secret Service as Harrison J. Bounel.

He’s continually speaking in terms of “The International Community” rather than representing Americans ....as if he’s the speaker for the world......But it’s “OUR” men and woman he puts in arms way...not the worlds!

“His” military has been telling him that they have the ability to strike, but have serious misgivings about why they should strike.

That does sound like a king, or an African dictator.
Considering his upbringing he probably believes that this country’s assets are his personal property to play with as he sees fit.
