Allow me to play the gadfly by asking what, exactly, is the “crisis” - in terms of my life - in Syria?

#Breaking: UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon says UN weapons inspectors “need 4 more days” to complete their investigations in #Syria

RT:

Wednesday, August 28

13:58 GMT: Israel’s armed forces are deploying all of their missile defenses as a precaution against possible Syrian retaliatory attacks in case Western powers carry out a strike on Syria, Israeli Army Radio reported Wednesday.

“In light of the recent occurrences in the region, the IDF is taking the necessary defense measures to safeguard the state of Israel,” Reuters reported a spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) as saying.

Neither did elaborate on which military deployments are taking place.

13:54 GMT: Iraq has put its security forces on high alert ahead of an expected strike on Syria, Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki said.

“All political and security powers in Baghdad, the provinces and all over Iraq, are being put on the highest level of alert,” Reuters reported al-Maliki as saying in a televised statement Wednesday.

13:45 GMT: Damascus has handed over proof to UN inspectors that Assad’s regime did not deploy chemical weapons, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Al-Mikdad told reporters Wednesday.

“Syrian government forces have never used chemical weapons – such claims are just a pretext. We have proof of this, which we passed to the inspectors of the UN commission,” Al-Mikdad said.

12:08 GMT: Missile strikes against Syria could lead to chemical weapons getting into the wrong hands, said Alexander Yakovenko, Russia’s ambassador to the UK.

11:49 GMT: Russia’s Foreign Ministry said it was too soon to discuss measures against Syria by the UN Security Council before the UN investigators report on the alleged chemical weapons attack.

11:17 GMT: Saudi Arabia’s armed forces have been placed on high alert amid widespread expectations that Western governments are planning to carry out a military strike against Syria in the coming days.

11:14 GMT: The French parliament is to hold an extraordinary session later Wednesday to discuss the situation in Syria, Reuters cited government spokeswoman Najat Vallaud-Belkacem as saying. “The president has taken the decision to summon parliament on Wednesday to assess the situation in Syria,” she said after a Cabinet meeting.

10:59 GMT: German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle urged members of the UN Security Council, including Russia, to back the UK resolution on Syria expected to be proposed later Wednesday. The resolution will condemn the chemical weapon attacks allegedly carried out by the Assad government and authorize “necessary measures” to protect civilians.

10:32 GMT: The UN’s Syria envoy, Lakhdar Brahimi, said that international law is clear that a Security Council resolution is required for military action.

10:16 GMT: American and British warships deployed in the eastern Mediterranean may carry out a strike on Syria using cruise missiles as soon as in the early hours of Friday, according to Fox News quoting unknown military sources.

Daily Mail ^ | August 28, 2013 | Amanda Williams and Jill Reilly

The U.S is confident that Syria was behind the deadly chemical weapons attack after intercepting a phone call from a Syrian defence chief demanding an explanation from its chemical weapon military unit for the action, according to new claims.

Just hours after the attack last Wednesday an official at the Syrian Ministry of Defense exchanged panicked phone calls with a leader of the unit, demanding answers, according to website Foreign Policy.

The phone call was intercepted by U.S spies according to the website, and is now the reason that America is confident that it was carried out by the regime.

The US and its allies are gearing up for a probable military strike against Syria that could come within days and would be the most aggressive action by Western powers in the Middle Eastern nation’s two-and-a-half-year civil war.

We shouldn't be too concerned.

Obama, Kerry, and Hagel (i.e. Larry, Moe, and Curly) with the oversight of Valerie Jarrett will make the final call based on what's best politically for them.

It doesn't get any better than that.

55 House members say Obama needs approval from Congress in Syria strikes
By Rebecca Shabad - 08/28/13 10:25 AM ET

Fifty-five lawmakers including eight Democrats have signed a letter that says President Obama would violate the Constitution by striking Syria without first getting authorization from Congress.

“Engaging our military in Syria when no direct threat to the United States exists and without prior congressional authorization would violate the separation of powers that is clearly delineated in the Constitution,” states the letter, spearheaded by Rep. Scott Rigell (R-Va.).

Rigell intends to deliver the letter to the White House this afternoon and will continue to seek signatures until noon, his communications director, Kim Mosser Knapp, tells The Hill.

The Democrats who have signed the letter so far are Reps. Zoe Lofgren (Calif.), Rush Holt (N.J.), Gene Green (Texas), Beto O’Rourke (Texas), Peter DeFazio (Ore.), Kurt Schrader (Ore.), William Enyart (Ill.) and Timothy Walz (Minn.).

Crisis? For who? I am sorry but I just don’t see Muslims killing Muslims as a reason for hand wringing in the US. I also don’t see any justification for borrowing $40 Billion from the Chinese so we can spend $100 Billion bombing more Muslims just to prove that Obama really does know what the term “Red Line” means.

latest info from around the net includes:

-Russia stepping up defenses at their Syrian base and some troops placed on “war alert”
-Jordan says “No thanks” and will sit this one out
-Isreal calls up reserves, requests for gas masks by public increases
-Former US Naval commander says “we’re not ready to fight there”
-There were some fringe reports of another use of chemical weapons in a Damascus suburb of Huhrer (spelling?) and a large explosion near the presidential palace. Also reports that several rebels more aligned with regional terrorists groups had been injured by chemical weapons contact and were now in a Lebanese hospital. Strangely, they had been evacuated from a tunnel in the suburbs of Damascus and not with all the other victims. Were they the ones that handled the rebel’s chemical weapons stash and unleashed it? Accidently exposed?

Here’s what I found this morning:

I posted this on the other thread.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3059631/posts?page=14#14

“Mornin’ all,

I didn’t have time to read the Syrian threads and I don’t know if you have this info I found in an Egyptian paper, el Mogaz under the title:

“The Free Army INJECTS corpses with chemicals to convict the regime”

Here’s the video, maybe our intelligence agencies “acknowledge” the facts instead of following 0b0z0’s agenda to create Syrian emirates under al Qaeda rule.

http://almogaz.com/news/2013/08/28/1068239

Egypt turned on the MB. The agenda for the Arab spring couldn’t wrestle Egypt down, thus, Syria HAS TO GO DOWN!

Ralph peters got it right but no one wants to listen!

“The UN’s Syria envoy, Lakhdar Brahimi,”

Remember this name! His UN title is equivalent to a head of state. His term is about to expire.

The rumor mill in Egypt is that el Bradei who’s considered a traitor in Egypt and is now at home in Vienna, Austria will be rewarded for his MB loving by election to this huge UN post!

You may think that this is OT, it is not. What best to help the MB than a big UN sympathizer?

HOME FRONT REACTION: (More of a spot report, really...)

Here in Florida, I was warned of retail panic about to erupt due to these events.

This morning, the price of retail gasoline in the Tampa area spiked 15 cents overnight, from $3.35 to $3.50.

Reports are reaching me of higher spikes in urban areas, where distribution is already a problem.

If Obozo Liar decides to attack the Syrian regime, he has ensured – for the very first time in history – that the United States will be on the same side as al-Qaeda or an enemy, who has killed thousands of innocent Americans on 9/11.

Quite an alliance! The Islamic thugs/serial killers, who slaughtered thousands of innocent Americans on 9/11, will then be fighting alongside the very nation whose innocents they so cruelly murdered almost exactly 12 years ago.

What would have happen to FDR if he had ordered our Flying Tigers to attack the army of China instead of Japan’s air force and troops in China?
