Posted on 08/27/2013 4:57:26 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Russia and China have stepped up their warnings against military intervention in Syria, with Moscow saying any such action would have "catastrophic consequences" for the region.

The fact is that the executive branch is weak.....but insistent on backing the worst party in any option......
But the media worshipers NEVER point this out.
I remember the media and Nancy Pelosi DAILY attacking George W Bush for foreign and domestic problems.....
Today, the GOP is silent..........and of course so is the press.
Without foreign news sources, we would have no idea what is going on. Probably like the USSR in the 50’s.
al Qaeda murdered 3000 Americans per hour on 911,
and has continued to murder Americans.
So why is the undocumented Tyrant and the US Congress
expanding their support of al Qaeda???
(as if MANPADS, SAMS, and open borders for al Qaeda
were not enough)
And what will Zero do if US ships are targeted and we start losing American lives?
As soon as obama enters syria the chicoms will attack Taiwan or start something with Japan... I can just feel it.
Surrender like rats always have done.
David Cameron: Speaker agrees request to recall Parliament on Thursday. There will be a clear Government motion and vote on response to chemical weapons attacks. #Syria
I think we all know where this is heading..........
Praying Vladimir Putin gets it through zer0’s nappy-headed skull how the consequences will be too great for America to endure should it attack Syria and to stand down.
Syrian Sunni Rebels used the Chemical Weapons (not Assad)
Because CONgress, Bathhouse Barry, and Al-CIA-duh all work for the same bosses - the Globalist Banksters. In Syria they are implementing the "Arc of Crisis" policy masterminded by Zbigniew Brzezinski. He was the one that created Al-CIA-duh.
As for 9/11, well, Uncle Scam now openly arms and finances Al-CIA-duh to slaughter Christians and the American people got suckered into fighting more Globalist wars and begging for the DHS/TSA/Patriot Act/NDAA boot on our neck. You put two and two together.
Any lives lost? Obama will be blame: Bush, Republicans, the Tea Party, ATMs, sequestration, and racism.
The GOP (with rare exception) are cowardly eunuchs.
We are going to be attacking the last refuge of Chrisitans in the Middle East.
I think we all know where this is heading..........
The stronger Putin’s message to ‘leave well enough alone’, the more the petulant boy-king will push an attack. Typical narcissism from the WH under the boy-king.
As I just said on another thread, we do NOT need Peter King, John McQueeg, Bill Kristol, etc, etc., constantly needling zero with "Hey, what about that red line??? Huh??? Huh?? What about it???"
This is a rare case in which the country would be better served if we let zero save face and back away from his ill-advised comment.
So I would ask that the GOP stay silent, unless to insist upon a declaration of war by Congress before a single launch button is pushed.
More likely, this is all about O's muslim background and the Petrodollar issue.
Saudi money goes a long way.
Forward to WWIII.
Zero lost face when Putin decided to shelter Snowden.
Zero is such a child that we may go to WW3 because he can’t stand to be denied.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Isn’t that the objective?
I don’t like being the world’s Bad Guys. I haven’t liked it since Bosnia.
This is what he wants. He’ll use nukes and hope there’s something left for him to rule.
The white hut won’t have a defense against Putin’s missiles because liberals don’t want a missile defense. There’s always a silver lining.
91% of the American people oppose action in Syria. But I’d bet at least half of those still love Obama.
It’s sickening. So put me in the Rootin’ Putin group.
Remember this. Obama can’t do a damned thing without the entire military command and congress being with him.
“As for 9/11, well, Uncle Scam now openly arms and finances Al-CIA-duh to slaughter Christians and the American people got suckered into fighting more Globalist wars and begging for the DHS/TSA/Patriot Act/NDAA boot on our neck. You put two and two together.”
Why are Christians the only ethnic religious group that the globalist elites and their media love to trash? It is accepted bigotry.
Looks like he’s got us in a pickle now.
“Remember this. Obama cant do a damned thing without the entire military command and congress being with him. “
I don’t hear any Republican saying fix the USA and no more wars for our non-interests! They are hedging because they are puppets too, just as they are puppets to amnesty for illegals. They are establishment. The establishment wants war and amnesty and next they want to disarm Americans.
Very concerned about this. One, because I know the community agitator is in charge, and two.........well, the community agitator is in charge.
I believe they want to disarm....out town just notified us that they can’t process permits anymore because they don’t have the administration resources to do it.
I say we should stablished a deterrence against the use of gas warfare.....no deterrence means encouragement of terrorist gas attacks here and elsewhere......if some bombs happen to fall on Russian and Chinese embassy......send our deepest condolences
Not a “proxy “ war against Russia this time. This is lose los and damned stupid, re: evil
However, the winds are turning in a direction not favoring the muslims.....
If Syria's modern anti-ship weapons are operational then we are going to lose a warship or two. If they are not operational then expect Russian force to hit anti-Assad forces in retaliation for our strike(s).
(Of course ground to air just might take out our missiles in which case the administration is just embarrassed and not much more happens)
Next step would be for Iran and Syria to launch an attack on Israel. Both claim they intend to do exactly that so maybe they will. What then? Will Israel simply "take it" or will Israel respond? Should Israel respond then Russian will be forced to respond to that and us to defend Israel and there you have it folks WW3 is on once Russia hits US forces in the med or Turkey.
So the questions are, can Syria hit our ships? Can Iran hit Israel? What assets does Russia have in the region? Does Russia think Obama will back down if he is starring nuclear war in the face? China may want in on the action too, but I think it more likely they will play it smart and sit this one out.
China, for one, is interested in Asia and in Africa. Is trhe US a paper tiger? Does the US panic when a single ship is sunk? The Chinese will definitely take note of how we behave. And the Iranian nuclear program, and North Korea, and others.
Global Power is in flux. The WWI analogy has been done to death, but there is good reason to think that great nations will make some bad choices and then it will all go smash.
True but that does not make it wrong. Russia has been looking for an opportunity to embarrass/bloody the USA. Seems Syria is that opportunity. We have no business in Syria and it is insane to get involved as allies of the Christian killing Al Quada. I think everyone in DC has lost their minds.
Concur. Putin sees this as a opportunity and he is not wrong. And I can see a lot of countries coming into the play as this unravels. I think the WWI analogy is quite apt, but I think some folks dismiss it as an empty cliche. For me, it is not empty.
Main Steam Media’s new nick name.... Brown Nosed Clowns...
Won't matter...Contingency plans are in place for those who place the blame...
I don't believe it has to do with being cowardly...It takes millions of dollars to get these people into office...That money didn't come from John Q. Public...They will appease the money people to stay where they are at, with very few exceptions...

Youtube with Biden warning GW not to start military action against Iran without approval from Congress. If GW did, Biden promised to start impeachment proceedings.
One might ask Joe, Why not now Joe if your Obozoliar bombs Syria?
Biden’s “warning” was all about politics and hot air - Democrats looking down on Republicans.
