Is Obama planning a missile strike on Damascus?

If so this would be the stupidest thing he’s ever done!

Russia will defend Syria and Assad. We will end up in a full scale war.. with RUSSIA.

One wonders what the Germans were thinking in the months and years leading up to Hitlers reign.

Many were probably thinking the same thing.

Nah, just probably planning on finishing off the Christians for the Muslim Brotherhood. Couldn't he use drones for that?

He wants those rebels in control of Syria.. so they can strike Israel.

“Russia will defend Syria and Assad. We will end up in a full scale war.. with RUSSIA.”

Yep. And Russia is on the sides of the lesser of the two evils.

Yet another example of why I respect Putin more then this POS, err, POTUS.

I suspect one of the rebel factions did the gassing using Saddam's missing "Weapons of Mass" destruction, you know, the ones that were never found because they were spirited away to Syria and now are in the hands of either the government or rebels or both.

Without proof of who actually used them, an attack on Damascus is insanity.

I bet he doesn’t have the balls to do it.

His only response to the use of weapons of mass destruction will be to leak this phony story.

I agree. One of the rebel groups used Saddam’s WMD’s and then blamed Assad.

Now Obama plans on striking Syria. It is sheer insanity.

This guy doesn’t have a clue about what he’s doing. He’s in way over his head. Maybe Putin needs to show him how a man conducts a war. Obama had better know what he’s getting in to. I don’t think he does and all of America will pay for this intellectual lightweight who should never have been elected but was by 95% of the low information voters who have less of a clue than HE does. Thanks, black America. You voted for a man because he’s half black. What has that gotten you because it sure has been painful for us.

A phony president will bomb Syria over a phony chemical weapons attack. They must be desperate to change the news cycle. If berry bombs Syria it means he was in on the chemical attack propaganda.

US Intel leans toward concluding poison gas was fired

DEBKAfile August 23, 2013, 9:04 PM (GMT+02:00)
Administration officials said Friday that US intelligence detected activity at known Syrian chemical weapons sites before Wednesday’s possible chemical weapons attack that killed at least 1,000 people, according to CBS News. It is now seen as possible preparation for the attack. US intelligence agencies now lean to the conclusion that Syria did use chemical weapons. DEBKAfile’s military sources add: The gas shells were fired by the Syrian army’s elite 155th Brigade. They came from stores near Damascus controlled by the Syrian Air Force intelligence service which answers directly to President Bashar Assad.

This would be an act of war as all force is still unsanctioned by the UN. Syria and her allies could legally respond against any US or NATO target.

Clinton got away with this against Serbia with UN sanctions, and for this, Russia engineered a punishment for NATO by whacking Georgia with impunity, backing down NATO and the West in the process.

Russia is much better prepared now than when they executed Georgia, and they have international law on their side this time.

A senator mentions the word impeachment for all of the obozo hussein’s scandals and what does the obozo do,??? He needs a big distraction so coincidentally a bunch of Syrian women and children get gassed to death. The funny thing about that, the report of the deadly gassing came out the day before it occurred. None the less, now the obozo hussein can pursue getting us in another war with another muslim country and the dude is a muslim. He must believe strongly in martyrdom, just not his own.

I don't think the correlation of naval assets in the East Med favor us vis a vis with Russia.

If Putin starts a tit for tat escalation we are going to be short soon without moving strategic assets from the Persian Gulf etc.
