Posted on 05/19/2014 4:58:42 AM PDT by mgist
American, British and French Intelligence services are convinced that Assad continues to use chemical weapons against his people. As Ive previously noted, for the Obama Administration, this is a triple disaster: strategic (the Russian-brokered WMD deal has been rendered a tragic farce), political (domestic perceptions of Obamas leadership have suffered), and humanitarian (Syrians continue to choke to death). Still, for three reasons, I believe Obama might soon enforce his red line with US military force.
1) Obama doesnt need Congress to approve military action. Nor would America have to act alone.
Since September 2013, when Obama withdrew his Syria authorisation of force request from Congress, many have claimed that future American military action against Assad is inconceivable. The truth is quite different. While Obama would face significant criticism were he to order military action without Congressional approval, he has deliberately retained that very option. On August 31 2013, explaining his original decision to go to Congress, Obama stated . I believe I have the authority to carry out this military action without specific congressional authorisation Its not just Obamas opinion, the legal precedent for a President's authority to order limited military operations is largely uncontroversial.
Obama is also aware that the US wouldnt have to act alone. While Britain has effectively ruled out using military force, France is doing just the opposite. Last Tuesday, declaring that Assad has used chemical weapons at least 14 times in recent months, the French foreign minister openly lamented last September's policy choices.
Last Thursday, John Kerry emphasised that there would be consequences for Assads continued use of WMDs. Perhaps he was laying the diplomatic foundation for military action? We already know that the CIA is increasing weapons supplies to select Syrian rebels
2) The US Military has pre-positioned capabilities that would enable military action.......

They are both heroin cartels.
And fast and furious.
Christians are being slaughtered in Syria. Hussein Obama hasn’t said a damn thing about that. He’s a vile pig.
Obama needs to draw attention away from his domestic scandals.
The dam is starting to break on the Benghazi hearings, the IRS, the VA, the missing $6 billion at the State Department...
Even the Obama Media working full time hasn't been able to completely shut down reporting on this crooked bas**rd
1. Benghazi hearings
2. IRS targeting of conservative groups smoking guns being revealed
3. VA deaths scandal
In The US it is known that it is very likely the Syrian government did not have chemical weapons, and it was the rebels bombing the country that did. In other words, it was just a staged excuse, just like the video, in the Benghazi debacle. It was staged just like the Soros funded “Drug Legalization” campaign that pretends to be citizens activism.
Famed author, Samuel Hersh, has explained in “The Rat and the Red Line”, how Obama has done nothing in the Middle East but use the US Military and money to support Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda regimes and rebels. The Syrian rebels Obama has given $millions of USD and an arsenal of weapons to, have plledged allegiance to Al Qaeda.
The fact that the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda are essentially heroin cartels, and Afghanistan under Nato’s protection, has produced record level poppy production that is flooding world markets, points to very sinister motives of world leaders.
Obama and Iran posturing. Putin knows exactly whats going on. I’m sure he profits as well. Ukraine is a strategically located drug port to EU, the way Mexico is to the US. Soros positioned his corrupt politicians for the cartels, and Putin was protecting his market. As we say in the US, “it’s all about the Benjamins”.
The fact that the only country that seems to be intercepting cargo ships leaving Africa with tonnes of pure heroin, tells me Obama isn’t the only president owned by the $3 Trillion drug cartels.
The media mass deception is ominous. World policy has become Soros policy, along with the rest of sociopaths who launder for the cartels. They have massive amounts of cash, ease in laundering and less scrutiny is what “drug legalization” is all about. The cartels are running the show. They all have blood on their hands, along with the media enablers. Take care of your families.
*The only country intercepting drug cargo leaving Africa is Australia.
I think you have missed the fact that Obama has been brutal to allies not supportive drug trafficking in their countries.
Syria has probably used this Russian sponsored delay to beef up air defenses.
I don’t buy it...all his (white)”supporters” really believe the “non-confrontational” crap they were indoctrinated with. If he bombs Syria, most of his hippy support will end. Yeah, I know, they will glom onto Hillary, but that will also put her in a precarious situation.
obama will of course leave Iran alone which promises to kill millions of people with the nuclear weapons they are building.
As far as the eye can see....a sea of red.
Obama would do it so that HE would get the attention and not necessarily that the United States would be getting their attention.
We’re going to bomb some poppy fields?
