Gen. Martin Dempsey, the top Pentagon officer repeatedly warned against the costs and potential entanglements of military involvement in Syria. Now he's testifying on behalf of the White House.
The nation's top military officer warned repeatedly in recent months that getting US military involved with Syria is a dangerous proposition...
Did he change his mind or is he just doing the White House's bidding?
In the past, he has made it clear that US military intervention could tip the balance of power in favor of Islamist rebels who don't necessarily have the interests of the United States at heart...

Yes, I saw that. And Kerry looked like a drugged Zombie. They’re Demonic, and that’s the truth.
I worked for a conservative Think Tank in the early ‘80’s and we spent two weeks with Yuri Bezmenov who had defected from the KGB. He had some horror stories about communism, how our media is in the tank for the commies, Useful Idiots, etc.
Is The US Going To War With Syria Over A Natural Gas Pipeline?
If we could just avoid a downturn in this economy we could avoid this new war. There must be an economic index somewhere that is linked to political calls for starting a war.
“Hes following his orders.”
You could tell by some of his answers today he doesn’t want to be there, and thinks this is a horrible idea.
But, he’s a good trooper, and will follow the orders of the dumbasses.... err... I mean leadership above him.
After all, it’s what the people he serves voted for.
Bravo!!! Absolutely awesome video. Thanks so much!
>>Just like the Red Army 1938, all thats missing is the one-way trip to The Lubyanka.<<
“Forget about Spain (Iraq), comrade. Nazy (Al-Qaeda) is a friend now. You have to team up with the Nazy (Al-Qaeda) to kill Poles (Syrians) for them.”
I guess it is how Soviet officers felt back when. The rest is history.
You have to understand the military.
The chain of command is designed so that anyone under any other level of government (including the military) is expected to accept and praise any suggestion, rule, order, and any other directive or thought of any other higher level.
If you don’t follow this rule you are accused of being: A boat rocker, not playing with the rest of us, a bomb thrower, not rowing with the rest of us and on and on and on.
Basically it’s a “go along to get along” system and if now adhered to.....will impact your chance of any future promotions.
I know from experience for I worked in the government for 12 years and in the military for 4.
This general simply was “nudged” by his “betters” that he was not playing the agreement game with his dear leader....Obama.
Michael Rubin of the American Enterprise Institute just said that the ALQueda REBELA have used Chemical Weapons also....4 times for both sides.
EVERYONE needs to read that article about the Gas Line that Qatar wants to go thru Syria.....no WONDER Qatar wants us to get rid of Assad. LOTS of MONEY to be given to ALL the DEMOCRATS who support this bombing!
“Did he change his mind or is he just doing the White House’s bidding?”........
That one pretty much answers itself. He does not want to loose his current job nor his eventual cushy retirement. There are numerous ways he could be “punished” if he failed to do odumbo’s bidding and since he does NOT have a dog in this Syria fight, he has nothing to loose by supporting odumbo. After all, its just spoken words.
Is there a quote from the senate hearing that indicates he has changed his mind?
I heard him say we are always ready but I never heard him say I’m anxious to go.
He in fact lateraled the ball back to Kerry when he handed the General a hot potato.
I think it’s just a case of “Shut-up and cover”.
These “top brass” have spent so much of their careers kissing a** that subjecting troops, men and women, to possible annihilation is purely political...
As long as Obozo’s butt is covered, life is good....
Nothing to lose but the blood of our children.....
“Like Betrayus, Dempsey probably has a squeeze on the side.
And Zero has the file.”
Female/Male/ squeeze or both?
He wants to keep his cozy, cushy Pennttagon job.
