Posted on 08/28/2013 9:49:43 AM PDT by Zakeet
Until now, the loudest and most material opponent to a Syrian invasion by the "liberating" powers was Russia. Moments ago, China joined the anti-western axis. BBC reports: "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."
Earlier, UK Foreign Secretary William Hague told the BBC an international military response to the suspected use of chemical weapons would be possible without the backing of the UN.
The UN Security Council is divided, with Russia and China opposing military intervention and the UK and France warning that the UN could be bypassed if there was "great humanitarian need".
In a column in The Times newspaper, former UK PM Tony Blair has written that if the West does not intervene to support freedom and democracy in Egypt and Syria, the Middle East will face catastrophe
The UN says more than 100,000 people have been killed since the uprising against President Assad began more than two years ago. The conflict has produced more than 1.7 million registered refugees.
Adding to the picture, Interfax reported moments ago that representatives of Russia and China have left a UN Security Council session on Syria. And since both countries have UN veto power, just like back in 2012 when this whole scenario was being replayed, there can be not joint UN resolution.
Which means if the US wants an invasion, it will have to do it away from the UN, further cementing the UN's role as the world's most irrelant organization. Of course, it also means that the PR selling of such an invasion to a gullible public will be just that much more difficult, and the TV spin machine will be working on overtime.
Finally, just to make sure that should the Nobel Peace Prize winner begin a war (without Congress or the UN of course), earlier today Japan promptly aligned itself with the insolvent "developed" world:
The axes are thus set once again: US, UK, Europe and Japan vs Russia and China.
Let the games begin.
You Freepers don't need to worry ... cause the fearless Community Organizer is in charge!
... a stern warning to all you Freepers from one of the head RINOs ...
LOL! (Except for the fact that Rambozo is going to get a lot of people killed.)
Odd, how I agree with them..............
... we've got some outstanding leaders ...
... who know how to beat the Ruskies at their own game!
Al Qaeda linked groups behind Benghazi, train jihadists for Syrian rebel groups! http://freebeacon.com/u-s-al-qaeda-linked-group-behind-benghazi-attack-trains-jihadists-for-syrian-rebel-groups/
When 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 any enemy, who has killed thousands of innocent Americans on 9/11 or in the past.
Quite an alliance! The al Qaeda 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. The same killing thugs, who killed our ambassador and 3 others in Benghazi last September. He refused to send our military to help those Americans and allowed them to be slaughtered in Benghazi. Yet, he will use our military to fight against Syria’s enemies, al Qaeda.
What would have happen to FDR if he had ordered our Flying Tigers to attack the army of China instead of Japans air force and troops in China? The same evil Japanese military that killed our sailors and others on December 7, 1941. The same evil Japanese military which slaughtered millions of innocent Chinese with their cruel aerial bombings and on the ground military slaughter and rape of innocent Chinese.
Whoever thought China and Russia would make more sense on an issue like this? Maybe they think it’s nuts for Americans to stand with Al Qaeda. I know that’s how I feel.
Besides NONE of the people over there are ‘yearning to be free’ they’re just ‘yearning’ to be the ones in power so they can be the thugs. This mess is NOT our problem.
That graphic is painful.
True, but painful...
As Kucinich said, the US is now al qaeda’s air force.
There’s an old saying: When two of your enemies are fighting, off to hold their coats..............
I'm glad we have China & Russia in our corner, to offset the SOB RAT bastard muzlim commie pig, 0dumb0 and the idiot moron Camerron.
I think that 0dumb0shit will find out very quickly the the Russkies & Chicoms are dead serious and play to win. Having Camerron & 0dumb0 as our faggot commanders-in-chief going up against Russia & China is like sending in dumber & dumbest and hoping to win.
China: Syria Strike Would Have “Catastrophic Consequences”
Obama: Cool! Let’s do it!
People still believe 0bama's foreign policy is simply bumbling and incompetence.
0bama has set Israel up the bomb...
Sept. 11, 2012
Netanyahu gets the cold shoulder.
The embassy in Cairo puts out an apology for a movie most of the rioters know nothing about.
0bama sent a letter to Tehran assuring them that the U.S. will do nothing to help Israel. That takes that off of the table removing a big worry for them that might have made them think twice. Iran is good to go now with 0bama's blessing.
The "movie" turns out to be a red herring excuse to cover for the rioters.
Quite a day of unfortunate coincidences. Israel was rebuffed and there were signals being sent to the MB and Iran. 0bama is giving the "go ahead" to the Muslim world to take out Israel.
Obama Admin Transferred 3,000 Detainees to Afghan Gov't Control Day Before 9/11
U.S. denies premeditation report
"The Obama administration is flatly denying a blaring British newspaper report that the U.S. diplomats in Libya were killed as a result of a continuing security breach, and that credible information about possible attacks had been ignored. A U.S. official told POLITICO: There's no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated."
Is that all incompetence? Or did it take planning to make all that happen?
Cloward & Pliven strategy and community organizing on a global scale?
This isn't just about getting re-elected, that's certainly a side benefit, this is about the big enchilada. No more Israel. The United States of the Muslim Brotherhood in the ME. ie the new Caliphate.
0bama has been trying to start WWIII for some time now. His plans haven't changed.
WW3 satisfies Bill Ayres’ desire for population reduction. Quickly. And the UN’s. See Agenda 21/Turtle Island population demands for details.
“WW3 satisfies Bill Ayres desire for population reduction. Quickly. And the UNs. See Agenda 21/Turtle Island population demands for details.”
Well, the 300 years after the Great Death/Black Plague was a period of great wealth in Europe, due to the reduction in population.
Today, we call it “The Renaissance Period”.
But isn’t funny how none of these population control proponents volunteer THEMSELVES for reduction?
Well there is the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement, but they are dying out ;)
The answer of course is they are enlightened and must survive to create a Brave New World, freed from the stupidity of Faith and freedom.

Sen. Rand Paul is hammering his fellow senators for keeping billions in financial aid flowing to Egypt’s military — even as Cairo’s security forces massacre anti-government activists.

Iran expands nuclear capacity, delays sensitive reactor: IAEA
But in making this statement, Russia is drawing its own red line—promising retaliation against us if we hit Syria.
I can’t help but wonder what they would actually DO?
Load some old umbrellas with ricin and try to inject a few Hollywood celebs visiting Moscow?
Make public the archival stuff showing that Kerry was part of Andropov’s red horizons op in the early 1970s?
I mean, there ain’t enough Rustoleum in the world to get their missiles out of the silos so what are they gonna do?
Unfortunately, with the Royal Idiot in charge, we may get a chance to find out.
