Madonna opposes American military action against Syria: ‘U.S. stay out of Syria’

September 6, 2013

Madonna might be one of the first entertainers who have spoken out about the possibilities of attacking Syria. There has been plenty of talk about the issue in Washington as Congress holds hearings and the White House has spoken too. Now it appears that celebrities are starting to make their position known. On Thursday night Madonna made it very clear she thinks striking Syria is a bad idea. “U.S. stay out of Syria for humanity’s sake,” wroteMadonna on a very political Instagram picture. Instead of just voicing her opinion, she wrote it down and photographed the oversize note. Looking at all the people who agree, it appears she isn't alone in her opinion of not striking Syria While celebrities are the first to get involved in less volatile issue surrounding society, posting opinions on pending acts of military strikes is a bit of a risk. Waiting to see what the government does before making an opinion known prevents any PR nightmares.

Oops, that almost makes me think we should attack. Madonna vs. Obama ... weighing for the preponderance of craziness ...

If we do get involved in Syria I propose that we pursue my plan which I call Operation Shoot the Winner.

She was calling anyone racist if they didn’t vote for 0bama. So of course she can’t come out directly and say 0bama stay out of Syria, otherwise she might call herself a racist.

Don’t rush to judgment yet.... we haven’t heard from our roving free-lance ambassador Dennis Rodman.

Now I can sleep tonight knowing what Miley Cyrus’ mentor thinks about foreign affairs. I hope Rodman chimes in soon.

Maybe this is why he canceled his Hollywood fund raiser in a few weeks. He’d get embarrassed by A) the kack of attendance and B) getting an earful from Madonna.

Maybe she now realizes that King Obama destroyed our economy and now he has just about destroyed our security from war. We could really get hurt.

OK come Tuesday we need mikes stuck in the faces of every Hollyweird/Manhattan lib who spouts off at the of of a hat about politics. People like Alec Baldwin, Susan Sarandon, George Clooney, etc. need to go on record supporting or opposing Obama’s waging of war on Syria.

She is an amazing person on so many levels besides being a philanthropist and an advocate for civil and human rights for all. Although the Instagram photo of Madonna in military gear needs to have a Stay of out of Syria sign instead of Stay out of Iran.

Now all we have to do is get the Kardashians, Spielberg, Streisand, Sarandon and Sein Penn on our side and Obama will surely cave on his Syria Bombing Punishment Campaign. After all Hollywood Libs seem to be his most ardent supporters? Without them the “O” is nothing but a Has Been Washed Up Chitown Community Organizer?

He was also supposed to address the AFL-CIO while in Cali. That is the other reason I think he canceled.

This worn-out old mattress probably has no idea of what is going on in Syria or what the issues are. But “US stay out” is something she knows celebs usually say about US interventions so she’ll say that in her desperate attempt to stay relevant.

Political analyst and military expert Madonna gives her valuable advice.

Cobain would say that we are “forever in debt to your priceless advice”

Right message, wrong doctrine.

Madonna has swerved into something she only dimly understands, that this situation in Syria is just none of the business of the US, poison gas or not. But her perspective is that war, in and of itself, is BAD, regardless of whether the combatants would have any empathy for her view of the world. It would have nothing to do with national interests of the US, only the seemingly endless bloodshed and violence that appears to be pointless. Adding the weight of the US military to one side or other does not essentially change the dynamics, except to INCREASE the number of non-combatants who are maimed or killed as “collateral damage”.

Although Madonna did support Wes Clarke for president back in the day because of his military command experience so it is doubtful that she carries a personal commitment to non-participation in all wars. I’m positive that she would validate the right of Israel to defend itself, at the least.

Well, then, that settles it for me.

Maybe not for you but she is reaching a LOT of people that wouldn’t necessarily be tuned in otherwise. I fail to see how that can possibly be a negative.

I need to go buy a lottery ticket. First, Obammy and me agree that the UN is FOS. Now, Madonny and me agree that any to do in Syria is BS.
