The President will deliver a statement on Syria at 1:15 pm today in the Rose Garden today.
Wonder what Valerie is going to say now?
Must be raining in DC today.
Oliver North on Fox just now said he stopped by Pentagon this morning to see old friends. Said all he spoke to are opposed to Obama’s planned attack on Syria. But none have guts, including four stars, to say that to Obama. Said SecDef Hagel should stand up to Obama. Sad state of affairs.
Obama: “After careful review, I have decided that military action in Syria will not be in the interest of the Syrian people at this time. I don’t think we should be dragged into another war because Republican senators think there are WMDs.”
Media: “Wow, he’s so assertive and tactical. What a great commander in chief. Damn war-mongering Republicans.”
American People: “President Obama kept us out of war. Yay!”
North also said his best guess is attack tomorrow night.
Chris Matthews: “He’s the perfect American! He has a wonderful family! He keeps us out of wars. The Republicans clearly think that he is not entitled to the presidency, and part of it is RACISM!”
The sad thing is...that will work!
Pensions and stars are very powerful weapons of cooperation.
Good work tho for starting the thread .. will check back later to see what flavor of CF the sissy traitor yammered on about.
Just in time for the Mid-term runups with unemployment on the rise and Obamacare a disaster. The president destroys our image abroad to his own political benefit. What a s9itstain.
Lucky for him he’s going up against one of the most lame college football lineups this season. So now I’ll end up watching some game I care little about.
Chief War Cloud speaks.
And— “mass destruction”!
Can’t believe a thing that comes out of his lying lips.
I’m watching football.
“I never promised you a Rose Garden. No. Not me. That’s not on me. That’s not mine.
“Along with all the good times we’ve been enjoying these past five, very long years, there’s gotta be a little rain some time, let me be clear about that.
“So make no mistake about it—smile for a while and let’s be jolly, life doesn’t need to be melancholy... what the.....
Lol did you hear how Putin addressed Obama today
He’s going to shoot some cruise missiles “across the bow” and hope that all his Syria troubles simply go away. I wonder how he’ll react if Assad launches another chemical attack. Then the U.S. will really be in a bind. This might escalate out of control, as most wars tend to do.
What interest does the USA have in this war? I just don’t understand our involvement in this internal civil war? Assad has murdered thousands of his people over the last several decades. Now, were concerned? This makes no sense.
It will take a large jar of Viagra to give that guy any spine.
the UN mouthpiece is doin whatever he can to stop this attack
going into a no moon phase this week. The usual time for strikes based on our past hegemony
Krauthammer Warns Strike on Syria May Result in Major Regional War
Aug. 31, 2013 10:12am Oliver Darcy
Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer on Friday warned President Obama that a strike on Syria may result in a major regional war.
Speaking on Fox News Special Report, Krauthammer said a miscalculation could be catastrophic for the region.
Well, if he [President Obama] miscalculates and the Iranians and Hezbollah react, we could have a regional war a major regional war, he said.
According to Krauthammer, a strike on Syria will put Iran in the drivers seat.
[T]he problem is if you make a miscalculation here and you let Iran imagine that it is in charge, it threatens to attack Israel Israel will respond fiercely it and it could get out of control, he said.

Lol did you hear about Putin addressing Obama as the Nobel Peace Prize Winner LOL!!!
It makes sense when a President and his cabal need some action(s) to get the peoples attention off other nefarious deeds; an old political ploy.
If Assad retaliates by hitting our ships positioned off the Syrian coast, what do we do then? (Do we know for certain that he doesn't have that capability?)
He’s going out to prove what a complete, egotistical, thin-skinned, @$$ he is.
Thanks for starting the thread. Would some of you with stronger stomachs than I please let us know what the snivelling bag of snot has to say?
I like y’all and don’t wish you ill. But there are some things I just can’t do. I get ear hives whenever I hear that voice. Some sort of bizarre allergic reaction best I can tell.
Can we covert this to a live thread or start one to keep us posted? I hate looking at the guy and can’t stand his voice. Plus, I have not hooked up a tv near my reloading bench and have over 1000 556 cases that need filling.
Thanks for the thread!
If (when) it all goes sideways and Israel is attacked, part of me hope.hope.hopes she creates herself several megatons worth of elbow room.
The ships should be well out if range of any Syrian missiles.
Helping Syrian Rebels Means Helping Cannibals and Murderers
Is the buildup of a United States military strike against Syria a diversion a wag the dog scenario in order to divert attention away from President Obamas many domestic troubles? The economy remains stagnant, youth unemployment is at a record high, and a majority of Americans are beginning to question whether the President has any real solutions to get the economic engine of American enterprise going again. A few well placed missiles in a foreign land where we cant see the destruction that might end being worse than the gas attacks, might bolster the Presidents poll numbers. Weve seen what our efforts to help the rebels in Egypt have done. Churches have been burned to the ground and Christians have been driven out of their homes. [A] video from Mideast Christian News shows a Muslim crowd attacking St. George Diocese of the Coptic Church in Sohag, Egypt setting fire to the church and then ripping out a cross from a wall around the building.
"WH official: Obama will not announce imminent military operation in Syria. The President will instead provide update on his deliberations"
The winds of Change have blown the stench from Benghazi all the way to Syria.. and beyond..
I’ve completely tuned Obama out. I don’t listen to his speeches, I don’t read news about him, and if he’s on TV I change the channel.
I wish, that if they are going to go off half cocked and do something, they at least go for the gusto and bomb the piss out of Mecca...That would be a GOOD start, and might get their attention!
If he said 1:15, tune in about 2 pm and he might be ready by then.
Thanks for starting this thread.
"Just think, the whole world is breathlessly awaiting the moment I SPEAK in the Rose Garden. ME, a humble boy from Hawaii, now holding the whole world in the palm of MY hand".
I'll bet he's near orgasmic.
ditto that...the UN panty waist is not wantin Syria hit at all....we must analyze...is his mantra
Yes, and mayhaps, Mr. Humble might again refer to “my military”.
By the way, has anyone heard from waldo boehner? Or is an amber alert pending?
Reggie says that would only make him less than a minute late.
Bohener, Mr. Bohener...? “crickets”
“If he said 1:15, tune in about 2 pm and he might be ready by then.”
The imposter might be in a bad mood if he had to be woken early so he could get his 18 in before bombing Syria.
