Skip to comments.Obama Threatens Force Against Syria ("Red Line" Statement 8-20-2012)
Posted on 09/04/2013 9:02:41 AM PDT by mojito
WASHINGTON President Obama warned Syria on Monday that it would face American military intervention if there were signs that its arsenal of unconventional weapons was being moved or prepared for use. It was Mr. Obamas first direct threat of force against Syria, as he has resisted being drawn into the bloody 18-month rebellion.
We cannot have a situation in which chemical or biological weapons are falling into the hands of the wrong people, Mr. Obama said in response to questions at an impromptu news conference at the White House. We have been very clear to the Assad regime but also to other players on the ground that a red line for us is, we start seeing a whole bunch of weapons moving around or being utilized.
That would change my calculus, he added. That would change my equation.

Facts don’t matter to this bunch.
A good metric is always measurable, but I guess "a whole bunch" will do.
Who are the wrong people.
“My” military. “My” attorney general. But NOT “My” redline. One of the first rules a leader must learn is when to STFU. Since we don’t have a leader, obie is just doing what he does best. Disengage brain(?) open yap! Look like the blithering bufoon that you are
We can’t expect the nation’s press to do such in-depth research. I mean this happened days ago...
As in a whole bunch of blame shifting...
Time to hand back that peace prize.
“I am not responsible for any statements made in a previous administration.”
“But it was you who said that last August.”
“That was in a previous adminstration.”
I mean, the nerve of people, using the internet to search for his previous statements. Obviously a bunch of racists out there.
...and then there’s that too. This guy is so mistreated. It’s because he’s (half) Black you know...
Liar, liar. Pants on fire.
This has to be the NYT’s push to force King Zero to act. I cannot believe they would publish anything that could even slightly be perceived as embarrassing to their selected boy-king wannabe.
Thanks for posting this article and the link.
I excerpted it earlier this morning and posted the excerpt as a reply. I had an early appt. and had to leave.
Keep up the great work, documenting the BS coming from this traitor and his team of traitors.
“Thanks Grampa Dave. I didn’t see your post, or I would have given you credit!”
No apologies are needed. I was in a hurry and posted my reply without a link and reference.
Thanks for doing it correctly.
