When observing the political life of Barack Hussein Obama – one can only conclude that he was castrated at birth. The former community organizer’s uncanny penchant to seek political cover (in order avoid any and all responsibility for his own actions) is a clear indication that his cojones were removed even before the cord was cut.
And Obama’s latest attempt at political cover further underscores his state of abject castration.
In August of 2012 President Obama sent a caveat to the regime in Syria that the use of chemical weapons would cross a “red line.” Then — in December of that same year — Obama reiterated his caveat to Bashar al-Assad: “The use of chemical weapons is … totally unacceptable. And if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons, there will be consequences and you will be held accountable.”
By April of 2013 Britain and Israel reported that chemical weapons (in fact) had been used in Syria. Just two months later the Obama Administration concluded that chemical weapons had been deployed against the civilian population of Syria.
Then on August 20, 20013 came news of a chemical attacked on the outskirts of Damascus that killed 1, 429 civilians.
In all, Bashir al-Assad has used chemical weapons fourteen times since Obama issued his first caveat to the Syrian despot.
So, what has been Obama’s response to all of this mayhem, death and the “egregious” violations of “international norms?”
Yep — that’s right — total retreat. Obama has quickly withdrawn from the hyper-bravado that he would act “unilaterally” if Assad dared cross the “red line”, to donning his mom-jeans and running to congress for political cover.
And the reason for this cowardly and pitiful display is obvious: The man without testicles realized that Syria has some very nasty and extremely violent friends (Iran and Russia) which have vowed to enter the fight (to defend their ally) if America strikes.
Such brutal reality (as in so many other circumstances and occasions) has caused Obama to shift his responsibilities to those around him. (In this case, sadly — he has found a willing dupe that goes by the name of John Boehner.)
Although I am adamantly opposed to any US involvement in Syria, Obama’s unwillingness to keep his word has made America look weak, feeble and highly vulnerable on the world stage. His spineless reversal has disturbed our allies while emboldening our foes: Yes, Iran (now, more than ever) marches boldly toward nuclear proliferation.
Obama’s empty threats and craven retreat concerning Syria and its use of chemical weapons are symptomatic of a man whose not only (clearly) incapable of leading the free world — but also of a man who was gelded beyond repair.
