That should take our minds off those “phony scandals”.
Very possibly a false premise right out of the gate.
“...limited and tailored use of the United States Armed Forces...”
If our military has been training for limited and tailored warfare we are doomed.
A friend wrote as follows -
Interesting perspective What if the rebels and the White House caused
the chemical attack. Read the article.
Knowing the devious ways of the left and the WH, this is entirely possible.
The article writer is a middle east intelligence expert with many sources in the area.
The allegation set forth in this piece would surprise me not at all, given that we now know the Administration had exact details on what was on in Benghazi at least as it happened from many US personnel in the area, if not before it happened. They have also been extremely devious with matters like Obamacare and the Second Amendment, trying to skirt Congress in some cases. My bet is this whole war exercise is mainly trying to squeeze additional funds out of congress to pay for necessary military line items like benefits for military same-sex spouses and buying off friendly defense contractors etc. Follow the money. If they get a resolution out of congress it will be open season.
“limited and tailored”....you mean like the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor?
Wherefore we have no idea why this happened or where it originated but we despise the idea so we condemn it.
Therefore we do agree to bomb the hell out of those that we think are responsible and hope to hell that innocents are not involved but we have no blame if they are...
We, the US are hopeful that this will deter this crappy government from continuing to do this and if not, will bring it up with the UN...so don’t test us.
So, you creeps that keep using chemical weapons on those unfortunate folks, well think about good things, it will do you good.
Yes we, the worlds cops will help to protect you even though we have no money, no status, and no desire to continue this help (after all we are broke) - but our government says we must...
McCain was asked tonight on Orealy what happens if Russia defends Syria...he laughed and said they would be defeated.
Limited STrike my .....
I hate it when a tin pot dictator uses armored vehicles and chemical weapons against his own civilian population causing the deaths of innocent women and children.....like Bill Clinton and the Democrats did at Waco. Let’s show Syria how it’s done and bring Slick Willy, Hillary and Janet Reno to trial for Waco.
Wow. Just wow.
These crazy phks are going for all the marbles. Soon they’ll come after us.
I lean more towards an accident indeed.
No, they mean fashion. They’ll be wearing tailored pants from The Limited during the mission. Special tops group from Obama’s new gay military.
Sorry he is a real horses ass...
Whereas John McLame is a dumb ass, whereas Odumbo is a fool, whereas the American citizens get screwed, whereas....
Oh, ahead of that. The claim that he’s waging war on the population without mentioning the rebels waging war on the government, and the claim that he’s responsible for all the deaths without, again, mentioning that both sides are causing deaths. They’re pushing through a resolution full of justifications that don’t match the reality.
You forgot the clause citing the alarming increase of refugee flow in the last week and claiming our threats to bomb had nothing to do with it.
Oh yeah, really do like the idea of inviting all of those terrorists in without adaquite screening...nothing to it for the terrorists.
1) Can this administration rule out with 100% certainty that this was not a rebel attack, or a rebel accident?
2) Can this administration rule out with 100% certainty that this was not a conventional Syrian rocket striking a rebel chemical weapon stockpile?
If not, we have no right to impede on the sovereignty of another country where we have limited, if any, security interests.
Obama will be on the golf course getting his directives under the radar.
As of August 31st, 2013, the number of times the Golfer-In-Chief (#GOLFTUS) has golfed is...
I'd wager they can't. But we know these three things for a certainty.
1. This administration has a penchant for prevarication.
2. They are also predisposed toward the rebels and their MB backing.
3. The Islamists have shown a pronounced skill at staging propaganda events -- even if it has meant killing their own followers.
Yes, there is reason to doubt the veracity of the government's investigation...
We have scary, stupid, loons for leaders!
The Committee worked fast, didn’t they. It’ll fly through the Senate and the House in the wink of eye.
And while the noise on Syria gets so much attention, big spending will be quickly and quietly passed on more civilian-oriented measures (to give welfare and make-work programs a big fill-up, regulate against certain investments, take bites out of pensions, etc.).
Any screed from the government that uses children as justification should immediately cause the reader to put the BS shield on full power.
The Syrian rebels have murdered and brutalized children. Are we going to bomb them, too?
This whole scenario of the libs and RINOs following Obama as he beats the war drum is incredible. Where are the Code Pink protesters? Where are the bereaved mothers camping out at Obama’s home? Where are the Iraq and Afghanistan vets against the war?
Up is down, and we live in Bizzaro World.
