Skip to comments.The Pelosi Doctrine: We Have to Enter Syria’s Civil War to Find Out What’s In It

Yknow, I wouldnt have a hard time believing that the U.S.A needs to blow into Syria and rain hellfire down upon Assad and his ilk except for the following:
1. Its their problem.
2. The rebels wed now be supporting look a bubble off level.
3. The folks whore selling us this quagmire make Pinocchio look like Moses and their foreign policies have been as successful as Crystal Pepsi.
4. Aren't we a wee bit late?
Lets break the aforementioned down, shall we?
Point number one: Aside from International law (which doesnt apply to the Syria scenario), and Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, and an acknowledgment of the War Powers Resolution, from a pragmatic perspective, shouldnt we let them sort their own business out? Geez, people, we cant even fix Detroit what the heck are we going to offer Damascus?
Earth to Washingtonian dipsticks: Our house first, please. Yes, lets take care of our business for, oh the next millennium and then look around the world for some fixer uppers, okay? Personally, Im sick of us rushing off to some Suckistan, at the expense of our troops' lives and billions of dollars from our broke-ass nation to fix folks who wish to remain stuck in the Stone Age.
Point number two: The creepy Rebels. These freedom fighters look certifiable to moi. They look like terrorists. They sure dont look or act like disgruntled gymnasts pining for democracy, especially that rebel from this summers video who killed one of Assads boys and then cut his heart out and ate it. Thats koo-koo where I come from. No air support for you.
Look, if BHO and Lurch want us to believe the good-rebel-freedom-fighter horse-hockey then they need to shut down YouTube for a while, because vids like the one the NYT ran this week of these lovelies executing Syrian soldiers while screaming Ollie, Ollie, In Come Free, or whatever it is they yell, make folks with a semi-decent BS Detector think wed be helping replace something with nothing, or worse. If I was president, I wouldnt provide them with air support or a pellet rifle, but rather dump bales of high THC ganja and Yanni CDs in an attempt to get them to all chill out.
Point number three. Obama, Kerry and McCain want us to trust them that injecting the US into Syrias civil war is the right thing to do? Hey, Kukla, Fran and Ollie: why dont you ask a cop how smart it is to insert oneself into a domestic dispute? This has got bad idea written all over it. This sounds similar to what my redneck cousin Slappy said when he tried to ride a blade on the wind turbine in West Texas, Hey, yall. Watch this!
Plus, when did Kerry become the hawkish war-monger? Didnt he caterwaul about US involvement in another civil war a few decades ago? Yes, I believe that he did.
In all fairness to Señor Kerry, maybe hes evolved. Maybe he was against involvement in anothers civil war before he was for it. Maybe his use of Teresas Botox has short-circuited his synapses? Maybe he didnt know war could be so cool until Obama started it? Who knows? Only John and God know.
Furthermore, a lot of folks arent too stoked on following your lead in Syria, Mr. President, because your recent brain farts in the Middle East have left Libya and Egypt as a hot bed for Islamic lunatics that really hate our guts. And thats not just this right-wing zealots thoughts, its also Colberts, Stewarts and Kucinichs. You know youre done as a Leftist when Dennis and HuffPo go sideways on you.
Indeed, the nation is not down with your plan to kill more Syrians to send them a message not to kill Syrians. And dont bother with the dead children diatribe because, as Colbert said, if you truly gave a crap about the plight of the kiddies youd invade Chicago, Planned Parenthood and your own White House.
And finally, aren't we a little late to their war? Its been cranking, in earnest, for the last twenty-four months. Arent the true freedom fighters pretty much dead already? Shouldnt we have stepped to the plate, say, before 100,000 people were killed and the Islamic lunatics showed up?
Just about sums it up. Great post.
In this insane world, she is a major national leader.
....and keep her cell phone switched on so Obama can "Cruse Missile" Assad.
If al Qaida overthrows Assad, then they will have their own state with their own capital. Good. Let them draw in every jihadi screwball from around the world, then...nuke them from orbit, it’s the only way to be sure.
Great link to send to your elected Elitist, ya think? LOL

LOL. Okay, just so y'all know, a redneck Texan named Slappy is conceivable, but i don't see a beer in Slappy's hand here, so the wind-turbine rodeo is hyperbole, especially since just one of those blades is bigger than the 18-wheeler it's delivered on.
“Yes, lets take care of our business for, oh

Well done, Mr. Giles.
In a sane world, this woman would be confined in a mental institution, in chemical restraints
Nancy Pelosi’s favorite song is “I’d rather have a bottle in front of me than have a frontal lobotomy”. Sadly she functions as she has both.
