I’m not 100% certain Assad’s people used chems but rather the opposition forces [islamists] and it wouldn’t be the first time.
lurch want to do his master’s bidding so the blame goes to Assad, missiles will be launched - and we will rue the day

i hold a deep loathing of Kerry, Hillary and obama and do not trust anything they say.

Destroy the economy and then when folks are old and poor demand they stand on their own economically, destroy their savings and then chastise them for not saving more and retiring with millions to carry them later on.

I get the point.

Two days? That’s good.

Cause it sounds like Iran and Russia might declare an unlimited day strike on us....

Yes, and the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand was a one day limited exercise to take out one obscure and minor leader.

Where’s the constitutional authority to use force?

Even a limited sucker punch on an enemy requires congressional approval.

Stalling just long enough time to move anything important underground and place all of the Syrian leadsership on Russian ships in the port.

Talk about loose lips, sinking our ships:

“President Obama is considering a strike on Syrian military targets involving sea-launched cruise missiles or possibly long-range bombers that would last no more than two days, according to senior administration officials and reported by Karen DeYoung and Anne Gearan of The Washington Post. Reuters reports that the West has told the opposition to expect a strike “within days.”

The design of the potential attack implies sending a message to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad without becoming entrenched in the 29-month conflict.

The Post notes that the targets would not be directly related to Syria’s chemical weapons arsenal and would probably include key government buildings in the capital and perhaps airfields.

Apparently, Assad and members of his family and inner office will not be targets.

So the Syrian military should begin moving their assets into mosques, churches, orphanages, historical sites and hospitals right now!

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.

Obama’s “limited strike” reminds me of Boehner’s “limited” approach to Obamacare.

Talk against it to get votes, but take no real actions.....

Business as usual politics in both.

I in the “let Allah take care of it” camp anyway, but that’s the analysis.

Just like Clinton. Obama doesn’t want to talk about his failed presidency so he decides to send some bombs to Syria. Jew hating Carter would rather Israel be bombed. Wouldn’t be surprised if Obama agrees.

Just send the Syrian Air Ministry the target list and time on target.

The truth is stranger than fiction...

Ted Striker: My orders came through. My squadron ships out tomorrow. We're bombing the storage depots at Daiquiri at 1800 hours. We're coming in from the north, below their radar.

Elaine Dickinson: When will you be back?

Ted Striker: I can't tell you that. It's classified.

So I guess he is going to publicize the speed, altitude, heading and TOT for our aircraft as well?

That would make as much sense as the rest of this crap.

I disagree. If any such action happens it will be a non-event -— by design. Obama knows he can’t do much. He is hemmed in. This is a ploy to make it appear he is doing something. so he lobs a few cruise missiles. Nothing happens except more talk blah blah blah.

obamas plan is to destabilize the entire middle east and cause more militant, jihadi muslim control of these countries.

egypt, libyaand syria weren’t unhappy enough with their current leaders so event shad to be made to happen to get these people outof the way for more extremist islamonuts to takeover, and for obama to start arming and funding.

which is exactly what he’s doing.

if obama isn’t the antichrist, he’s his right hand man.

I once tried a limited strike on a skinny little guy in a bar. I broke a chair over his head, and then sat down and finished my drink. He, of course, appreciated the limited nature of my strike, and didn’t whip out a shiv and go nuts on my face with it./Fake story.

O’Reilly was contradicted by both Ralph Peters and David Hunt when he tried to argue Obama’a POV. They were on together although in different locations and they made him look ridiculous.

BOTH of them refused to assume the notion that it has been proven that the Syrian government deployed the chemical weapons, which is what BOR tried to assume.

He began to get kind of frantic and was reduced to accusing them over and over that “neither of you trust your own government”, then, because your own government says it was the Syrian Regime.

Which only made him look more clueless - say WHAT?? We don’t trust the government?? DUH! That’s supposed to be a BAD thing on our part??

I didn’t watch ‘til the end but apparently he had Krauthammer on later to back up his position against Peters and Hunt.
