As events unfold in the Middle East and our dear leader Barack Hussein Obama through Mr. Purple Heart himself John Kerry, tells us that there is “undeniable” evidence that Bashar al-Assad’s regime used weapons of mass destruction on innocent civilians. The “undeniable” evidence is conveniently “classified”. The UN has not said there is “undeniable” evidence and the news media here or internationally have not confirmed our government’s “undeniable” findings. We, on the other hand, have provided significant evidence to the contrary or if you are skeptical of our findings certainly many questions that need to be further investigated.
If I remember correctly, back in 2003, after the Iraq war was over, the Democrats accused Bush of lying about weapons of mass destruction. We were told that all the intelligence – both from the CIA and our international allies – showed that Saddam Hussein had these weapons; he had used them in the past to kill his own people. Yet, the Democrats used the fact that no weapons were found as a political weapon to undermine the war, provide encouragement for the enemy, and demoralize our own troops. When the surge was announced to turn Iraq around, the Democrats fiercely opposed such a move, including then Senator Barack Hussein Obama. Al Gore castigated Bush publicly that the war in Iraq was “playing on our fears.”
Now for the real kicker. It was said back in 2003 that the weapons of mass destruction Saddam Hussein had were secretly shipped to Syria, an allegation also ridiculed by the Democrats. Yet, how did Assad acquire the chemical weapons he’s allegedly using? Maybe the Saddam shipments were true. If so, it means the Democrats must accept as true, that which they originally scoffed at – if their theory that Assad used Chemical weapons is true.
Today, we have come full circle with these Democrat fools who act just like the George Bush they criticized for engaging in the same behavior; now they take the American public for fools too. The Republicans went to the UN, presented evidence and received the blessing of the UN to take down Saddam Hussein but Obama, who used to swear by the UN, has no interest in making any case there. Obviously, Russia and China are having none of it and rightly so. Britain and France, who also seem to be Muslim Brotherhood-friendly, wish to appease their domestic Sunni terrorists and play along with Obama. The hypocrisy of Democrats and the liberal media continues to show no shame.
Obama, being an arrogant fool, always speaks before he thinks and painted himself into a corner with his “red line” and has no room to diplomatically maneuver. If he does not strike, he looks weak and if he does strike, the entire Middle East will blow up. Even a nominal cruise missile strike will accomplish nothing militarily; it will only create a bigger mess.
Deposing Assad will bring a new Muslim Brotherhood victory. Maybe Obama wants this to compensate for the Muslim Brotherhood loss in Egypt, which obviously disappoints him greatly.
America has botched up the Middle East from the policies of Eisenhower right through to Obama. We need to drill and frack for our own oil and gas, use as much Canadian oil as we can get and stop buying energy from the Middle East. Energy independence has been ignored by both Republicans and Democrats and will cost us dearly with many more lives and treasure lost in the future.
