Obama to seek congressional OK for Syria action
WASHINGTON (AP) – Short on support at home and allies abroad, President Barack Obama unexpectedly stepped back from a missile attack against Syria on Saturday and instead asked Congress to support a strike punishing Bashar Assad’s regime for the alleged use of chemical weapons. SOURCE
Barack Hussein Obama was ready to start WWIII a few days ago, with NO PROOF what so ever that the regime of Bashir al-Assad had *supposedly* used chemical weapons on his own people.
Obama then has *Lurch*, aka John Kerry, go on all news stations to tell America that we DO have proof that Assad used these weapons on his own people. PROOF Kerry claimed but didn’t offer.
The United Nations says it’s going to take a while, 2 weeks possibly, to ascertain that chemical weapons were used in Syria but that they may not be able to say with any certainty exactly who used these terrible weapon on whom.
In the ultimate act of Democratic HYPOCRISY, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi actually endorses the idea of America striking the Syrian leadership over the supposed use of chemical weapons, even though she is not, apparently, in possession of ANY kind of hard core PROOF that such took place.
NO PROOF but in typical Dem/Lib fashion, PROOF is NOT needed, all that’s needed is a *feeling*, well, as long as Obama is the POTUS.
Now if George W. Bush was still the POTUS, or any other Republican for that matter, these very same Democrats would be screaming, crying, pulling their hair out and DEMANDING that the GOP POTUS be impeached and imprisoned.
That is the truth, not some political accusation, so, this bit of common sense from Congress is surely a breath of fresh air.
WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) today issued the following joint statement.
“Under the Constitution, the responsibility to declare war lies with Congress. We are glad the president is seeking authorization for any military action in Syria in response to serious, substantive questions being raised. In consultation with the president, we expect the House to consider a measure the week of September 9th. This provides the president time to make his case to Congress and the American people.”
It truly strikes me as *strange* how Democrats and Liberals can be so passionate about an issue when a clown like Barack Hussein Obama or Nancy Pelosi are the ones wanting the action to take place.
It amazes me how they can ignore the over 100,000 deaths that have already occurred in this Syrian conflict and get so terribly upset because someone used a *chemical weapon* that, while against all the laws of humanity killed LESS than 2,000 people.
Where was the moral outrage before the chemical attacks? Oh, wait, the Dems expressed their moral outrage by supplying the Syrian Rebels (Muslim Brotherhood) with weapons which were in turn used to fight the Assad regime and will be used, at some point in time, to fight American forces when the occasion presents the opportunity.
Think Afghanistan, the Taliban and al-Qaeda and the weapons our troops face there today.
I am a highly opinionated Conservative, that is a well-known fact, so, this should not come as a surprise to any of my readers, friends or family; let the Muslims kill each other, and I don’t care HOW they do it either..
There is NOTHING we should do, in ANY Muslim nation, I mean don’t lift so much as a finger to help either side.
I felt that when we went to Afghanistan after 9-11-01 that we were fully justified in every way. Twelve years in and we’re so wrong to still be there. Iraq was nothing more than the Bush idea of *get some for Daddy*.
Today Syria is nothing more than Obama trying to turn the tide of his scandals and incompetence.
