There is certainly some outrageous outrage coming from the leaders of the free world about the possibility that 1,400 people were killed in CWA (chemical weapons attack) in Syria. Peace Prize Winner wants to send a strongly worded missile, “across the bow” because Assad has finally managed to cross that twelve month wide, extremely vague red line.
After delivering his message to the world and Assad that we’re going to shoot something, sometime, the President hit the links. After public opinion didn’t sway his way, he decided to take the matter to Congress for approval. Just as he should have in the first place. Oddly enough, taking the matter to Congress makes him look an awful lot like the fellow he’s spent the last five years demonizing for his own failures.
From the man who has signed thousands of Executive Orders for the end-around on Congress, one must ask what the calculated, last minute move is really for. He does nothing out of respect for the Law. If this matter is so important that it demands military action from the United States, why is Congress not being called back from vacation early for an emergency vote? Instead, they opt for another week’s delay until Congress is back, to plead their case on this self-proclaimed critical matter.
Our undeniably unqualified U.N. Ambassador Samantha Powers has taken to the Twitterverse to express her outrage. She says: “Not a scratch, shrapnel wound, cut, nor gunshot wound, yet at least 1,429 Syrians dead, including 426 children.” and “Reports devastating: 100s dead in streets, including kids killed by chem weapons. UN must get there fast & if true, perps must face justice.”
“426 children”, “…100’s dead .. including kids by chem weapons” and the “perps must face justice.” I don’t know how these liberals can bear the pain they have for all these innocent children being ruthlessly massacred. 426 children seems like a slow month for the Butcher of West Philly. No outrage there, we barely heard a peep. For the children, really, lets bomb Syria.
“We know the regime ordered this attack. We know the damage that was done afterward,” Secretary of State, John Kerry said. Yet a journalist for the Associated Press, Dale Gaylak, said the rebels have claimed responsibility for the CWA. An accident, it would appear, as a result of mishandling the weapons.
They are covering all the bases here and will run with what suits their political agenda in the future.
Obama wants the strongly worded missile, has missed his own red-line several times, and now wants the Congress to blame when military action is not authorized. President It’s-Somebody-Else’s-Fault.
Powers wants justice for the children, all 400 of them, because 56 million aborted since 1973 just isn’t enough to care about. So, if your not for bombing Syria, you hate kids.
Kerry is certain the CWA was carried out by the Assad regime and action must be taken against this heinous act. Never mind the AP report where the rebels claim responsibility and please forget his turncoat testimony a few decades ago. Kerry was against the war, before he was for it.
In the time of G.W. Bush, of whom I am not a big fan, he went to Congress, got approval, gathered a coalition of Nations for support against Saddam, and he’s the devil incarnate.
Saddam killed thousands, attacking entire villages and communities with chemical weapons, but our liberal friends didn’t care about those children.
As certain as the intelligence was, from several sources and Nations, concerning Saddam and chemical weapons, “Bush Lied, People Died”.
Liberalism certainly is the special-needs cousin of Logic.
