Skip to comments.Obama strike threat is butt of Syrian jokes
Posted on 09/10/2013 9:24:02 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
A Syrian caricature shows US President Barack Obama smile and pluck the petals of a daisy, as he wonders, "Should I bomb? Or shouldn't I bomb?"
As Obama delays a strike against President Bashar al-Assad's regime thought imminent just over a week ago, Syrians on both sides of their civil war are resorting to black humour, sharing jokes and cartoons via mobile phone and the Internet.
One Syrian posted a picture of Obama on Facebook with a biting caption that reads: "When Congress gives me the green light to strike, I will ask my wife Michelle and my in-laws. If they say it's alright, I'll go ahead!"
Cartoons mocking Obama's "indecision" made the rounds, with one depicting the US president as Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse.
Another joke makes fun of the US secretary of state, calling on Syrians to sign up for an imagined mobile phone service called John "Kerry, inform me at any cost" of when a strike would take place.
Some shared a joke about a man using unconventional means to propose to his fiancee: "Honey, let's wait till after the strike. We'll see what happens then."

“butt of Syrian jokes”
American ones too.....................and world wide no doubt.
Butt fits, don’t ya think?
The joke is fixin to be on us, somehow, I think. What concessions/deals will the O admin make with Russia so that their proxy avoids an essentially harmless strike now that he his so flexible (easy mark) post reelection?
What an insult!.........To Mickey Mouse............
Nice analogy ... timid as a mouse ... ears and all. 40 more months to endure of the country being shredded, domestically and abroad, by Obummer.
President You Didn’t Build That is an international jokea witless dirty joke only twelve-year-old boys would consider funny.
Comedy in the Muslim world? Someone should let Albert Brooks know.
Go Unbelievably Small or Go Home!
Maybe there should be a cartoon contest of Mohamed and say sent by Assad ...
0bama and kerry have unbelievably small brains.
I haven't seen any.
Are Obama Jokes verboten in FR?
Like "the strike was all scheduled, and the Bloods were available, but the Crips had a prior engagement?"
It's hard to laugh at Obama. There is nothing funny about the abortion that is this Presidency.
Guess that makes them all racists right?
Indeed. A more apt comparison might be a mix of The Three Stooges and The Keystone Cops.
I am sure all the aholes at disney voted for this bozo.
” Syrians on both sides of their civil war are resorting to black humour,...” - Dat be racist!
Laurel & Hardy meet Godzilla..............
