Baghdad Bob’s brother...
I’ve lived a good life. WW III is okay.
They say, if enough people think something’s going to turn out a certain way then you can bet good money they will make it happen. Obama can be proud, if this situation spins out of control, America will be the one who gets the worst of it.
Grass Fire Email alert: left off the request for funding.
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 10-7 this afternoon to approve a resolution authorizing President Obama to use military force against Syria in response to President Bashar Assad’s suspected chemical-weapons attack on civilians last month.
But the rushed vote reportedly broke Senate rules for moving legislation through the committee process. According to The Daily Beast, a senior GOP Senate aide called it “a rush to war behind closed doors,” adding:
“We were told there was a need to have a thoughtful and public debate about how this nation goes to war, but this seems to be about simply getting a resolution done to cover the President.”
Today’s actions allow for a vote by the full Senate as soon as Wednesday and enable the Democrat-controlled “upper chamber” to pass a war resolution before the House can write and pass one of its own.
Moments after the vote, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East, told FOX News that when Representatives return to Capitol Hill next week, Obama’s plan will likely by-pass committee and move directly to the chamber floor for a vote.
+ + Should Congress Back Obama On Syria?
Congress’ month-long summer recess ends in just five days — with a full Syria vote expected almost immediately. That gives grassroots Americans less than a week to make their voices heard!
From the Rose Garden on Saturday, President Obama said, “While I believe I have the authority to carry out this military action without specific congressional authorization ... Im asking Congress to send a message to the world that we are ready to move forward together as one nation.”
But our “Radical-in-Chief” has it wrong ... again. According to Article 1, Section 8, Clause 11 of the U.S. Constitution, “Congress shall have the power ... to declare war.”
That’s why grassroots Americans must act now! It’s liberty-loving Americans who need to send a message to Congress about backing Obama’s plan. Tell your Senators and Representative what you think about authorizing the President to launch a military strike against Syria.
+ + Make Your Voice Heard On Capitol Hill!
Yesterday, Grassfire launched a Syria quick poll to empower our team members and their fellow patriots to make their voices heard. In just 24 hours, more than 28,000 of you have responded — with 97 percent voting “No!” on granting Obama authority to conduct military operations in Syria.
Grassfire will deliver the quick-poll results to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) next week, prior to any vote. You can use the time remaining to expand the impact of your “vote” by faxing your two Tennessee Senators, Representative and other key lawmakers.
BTW cry baby only uses a answering machine which is ALWAYS FULL! He does not want to hear from us SERFS.
They should have never given Assad’s family safe haven in the UK, you want to be a dictator than you live or you die with the same risk as your countrymen. I wouldn’t much worry about his wife anyway, she’s western and a former investment banker...she’d find herself a golden parachute -don’t doubt that. They should load his family on a boat and sail it right into Tartus under the Russian’s noses.
...even if there is World War III
Syria has had plenty of time to move their weapons into civilian population centers. If Obama bombs them, we will kill many more than this gas attack did.
I seriously doubt that South Africa will choose to oppose the US militarily.
And I also doubt that the various Arab states in the Middle East will choose to side with Syria and its sponsor, Iran...
