Here is why the Tyrant likes this.

1. ‘Wag the Dog’ gets IRS, NSA, corruption, off the headlines.

2. Helps al Qaeda.

3. Blowback is against Israel.

4. Helps his PR mojo.

Iran is saying a US lead attack on Syria is a red line for them that will result in serious consequences.

I'm predicting a couple of empty warehouses getting hit by cruise missiles and Obama calling it a day.

But then,our Community Agitator-In-Chief *did* promise change.

Can you believe this:

kakistocracy= Government by the least qualified or most unprincipled citizens.

The ancient Greeks had a name for Obama thousands of years before he was born.

I’m sure intervention will be thoroughly debated in the senate before we actually deploy our forces into the theater.

And I’m pretty sure we’ll go get 17 or 18 UN resolutions first too, just to keep it all copacetic.

I don't think so. Obama is about to make a bigger ass of himself that he already is, if that is possible. This guy cannot do anything without screwing it up. This will be no different. He seems bent on embarrassing us as a nation.

I get the sense that we are living in biblical times.

Nothing good is ever going to come from the U.S. and Britain getting involved in this. In fact, this action could very well start WWIII and I think Barry and the dems would be just fine with that.

Pray for the repentance and salvation of America. It may be our only hope.

If Assad launched the attack first. China and Russia were not in agreement with the Obama. So, O was supposed to wait!

There’s a profit somewhere in this or the big boys wouldn’t be pushing it. Our servicemen will have to play the price for this and there will be mucho flag waving and rivers of humanitarian tears to keep us quiet.

What makes this even more nauseating is the fact that the Clown AND Cameron have been ignoring real problems and have instead focused on forcing the respective citizenry of their nations to celebrate sodomy.

Cameron recently spoke about spreading the idea of homosexuals marrying abroad, and the Clown got an earful about it when he went to Africa. Even in “third world” Africa, they know more about morality than these two jackballs.

There is not good side in this. Both sides are the wrong side.

This is one time when the Obamanation of Desolation should listen to his inner coward and do nothing. If he wants to prove he is a man help the Philippines and Vietnam confront China.

'Wag the dog' in action.. Chem strike horror staged by rebels (and U.S.) to justify bombing Assad.

Has 0bama approached Congress for consent to war in Syria??? Libya all over again.. Another war by 0bama, not authorized by Congress. ANOTHER impeachable offense.

What American citizen, direct American interest, or Constitutional duty is in imminent danger that would allow him to act without Congressional approval in advance? The executive isn't permitted to issue military strikes which are strictly punitive under our law.

With their intel they would know a strike is emmenent.
Are they preparing for what would surely follow?
