We have no abiding national interest in Syria …
Other than Obama’s ego and political legacy, the United States appears to have absolutely no national interest at stake in Syria. It is not our Constitutional responsibility to police the world and promote democracy if it disadvantages America and American citizens. I am not saying that we should not extend the hand of friendship and democracy to willing people … but that we are unlikely to bring democracy to religious zealots who demand that their state be a religious one and that everything be governed under Sharia law – a medieval code that is intolerant of divergent viewpoints and other religions.
I have yet to see conclusive proof that Syria used chemical weapons ...
All I hear is talk and more talk. There does not appear to be concrete evidence regarding what chemicals were used, their origin, their delivery mechanism, and why Assad would tempt the world to attack him. There is a great possibility that the weapons were holdovers from Saddam Hussein and that were exploded with conventional explosives rather than being fired from artillery. This could be a rebel false flag operation or a Syrian Army operation -- but we do not know. Using chemical weapons of mass destruction is likely to make the perpetrator an international criminal and thus someone who could be scooped up and delivered to the Hague to be tried for war crimes against humanity.
I do not trust John Kerry any more than I trust John McCain. And, I certainly do not trust an incompetent Barack Obama who leaves the heavy lifting to expendable subordinates.
Acting against Congress should be an impeachable offense …
Here we have a President, without Congressional approval, without United Nations approval, and with no national interest committing an act of war against a foreign sovereign nation for no other reason than to back up President Obama’s rhetoric. This is not an emergency and the United States is not under attack.
Don’t trust Saudi Arabia …
There is little doubt in my mind that Saudi Arabia was an unindicted co-conspirator with regard to the scurrilous 9/11 terrorist attack. Not only does Saudi Arabia promote a hard-line strict interpretation of Islam, but is spending billions building Mosques throughout the world to promote Whabism. There is also little doubt in my mind that Saudi Arabia has made a Faustian deal that secretly supports terrorists and terrorism in exchange for not attempting the overthrow of the The Kingdom and deposing the Saudi Royal family. The Saudis have a record of duplicitous behavior, saving one thing in public, and quite another in private. Seeking American assistance to protect Saudi assets and political power while condemning the United States. As for their arming of the rebels, there has been significant concern that the rebels have been deeply infiltrated by al Qaeda – an organization designed by Osama bin Ladin, a Saudi, allegedly funded by wealthy Saudis, and who sent forth Saudi terrorists to attack America on 9/11.
Allies Withhold Public Support for U.S. Strike on Syria
The U.S. is moving toward possible military strikes against Syria without the public support of any major Arab ally, reflecting broad unease in the region about another Western military intervention.
The lack of public endorsement from Arab governments, even from Saudi Arabia and other countries that have helped arm, train and fund rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad leaves the West with little political cover regionally should any Western-led attack go badly. <Source>
The Saudis greatly fear Iran, so could this be cover for a strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities?
|Iranian Official: Israel to Be ‘First Victim’ of U.S. Attack on Syria
A senior Iranian lawmaker said Israel would be the first casualty of any U.S.-led strike on Syria, according to regional media reports.
Hossein Sheikholeslam, the director general of the Iranian parliament’s International Affairs bureau, claimed the United States would not dare attack Syria but said that if it does, “the Zionist regime will be the first victim.” “No military attack will be waged against Syria,” Sheikholeslam was quoted as saying on Monday by Iran’s state run Fars News Agency.
“Yet, if such an incident takes place, which is impossible, the Zionist regime will be the first victim of a military attack on Syria,” Sheikholeslam said in an apparent response to the Obama administration’s increasingly stern rhetoric against Syria.
Iran has been one of embattled Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s chief allies. It has sent Hezbollah reinforcements to battle rebel forces and acted as Assad’s chief defender in the Middle East. <Source>
Bottom line …
Attacking Syria is bat-shit crazy. Unless Obama can convince Congress of the necessity to attack Syria, he should be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors.
