US military has revised Syria strike plan 50 times, source says
Fox News ^ | September 05, 2013

Posted on 09/06/2013 11:15:02 AM PDT by george76

Even as Congress considers President Obama's push for military strikes on Syria, the details of that plan continue to change by the day -- with one source telling Fox News that military officials have been asked to revise their plans 50 times since the Pentagon first began considering a “limited” action.

Still to be resolved is what method of attack the U.S. would use. While missile-equipped ships are at the ready in the Mediterranean Sea, a senior defense official told Fox News that the possibility of launching military aircraft strikes was one of the range of options presented to Obama.

The official said the choice the president makes will depend on what he wants included in the target list – and that seems to shift daily.

This sounds fairly typical in this administration. I’ve done some consulting work for civilian agencies and they are forever struggling with “political adaptations” on a daily basis. They are in perpetual crisis mode. Plans and projected spending change constantly. Its really a huge waste of time and resources caused by polically driven people who have no idea what they’re doing.

The thought of Valerie Jarrett shaping the target list is truly frightening.

Wonder how many of the targets are Christian churches and children’s hospitals that Al Qaeda wants eliminated.

If this jerk attacks with manned planes, he is a bigger fool than even I believe him to be. Bagdad has a pretty sophisticated defense system and Russia will upgrade it to their most advanced shortly if not already which might include a ship borne system which would be immune to attack unless the jerk wishes to end the world.

Why, oh why, are there sources willing to say such things?

Shoot leakers. All they do is put enlisted men and women into harm’s way.

Come on, anyone who thinks every single contingency has not been run through the Hillary propaganda machine to evaluate any implications plus/minus on her 2016 campaign is living in a fantasy world.

You have the boy president who not only has dark skin but very thin skin, Captain Ketchup, Val Jarrett, and of course Hillary (nobody cares about Biden) all with their own agendas so 50 plans? Sure and there will be more!

Any plan which might lose votes for Hillary is DOA!

I do not think this has much to do with Dear Leader and his wishywashyness. I think this would be SOP for any mayor military operation. Keep changing and tweeking the plan(s) until you are locked in with a hard and fast target and a GO date.

She probably located some more Ba’ath party sites worth targeting with a million dollar Tomahawk:
Two old men (one asleep) an old Dell computer, a printer, a half-ream of paper and a hookah. And a cat.

Wouldn’t it be funny if the pilots few around the Med for a few hours, dropped their bombs in the water then land and say “Mission accomplished, Sir!”

What could be more important then the Pentagon
bowing to al Qaeda and getting the plan
for HELPING al Qaeda (against the American people)
"right"? [\s, is this necessary??]


Perhaps they will have it fixed
by the anniversary of the 911 Atrocities which
they have forgotten (along with their Oaths
to protect the US Constitution against all
Enemies both foreign and domestic).



Is there a single real American that does not AUTOMATICALLY pledge the flag??

The thread above this comment represents itself perfectly. Our U.S. military forces should bomb Syria, Lebanon and Iran, then invade, occupy and denazify every one of 'em.

Denazification, cumulative review. Report, 1 April 1947-30 April 1948.
