-——the president can’t decide on the real objective in Syria——
You speak of threats and attacks in the abstract and don’t list the actual extended list of threats and attacks. Your focus is too tight and fails to include the wider scope of reality.
America and allies, Israel and the GCC have received numerous threats and attacks beginning many years ago. The source is Iran, delivered by both Iran and it’s surrogates.
Syria is the present primary surrogate.
We have a security interest in the extermination of Assad and removal of surrogate status. When Syria goes, Hezbollah goes and Lebanon is once again free. Iran is weakened.
The problem is Obama is a chickenshit wimp unable to speak out against Iran and pull the triggers necessary to destroy Assad.
If the limited war destroys Assad, I’m all for it. If it merely hits a chemical weapons site that manufactures ibuprofen, then it is a profound waste of everything.
I’m told Senator Corker, McCain and others want war for this reason. I have my doubts, but he may know the extent of the unrevealed war plan.
I am not going to write a treatise with all contentions covered as no one will ever implement anything that I write. I am just an American who knows the truth and knows much of what drives the corruption in DC. I will say that there is NO reason for us to attack syria at this time. I say it and Israel says it. The time to attack syria was long ago. IF we have a fight in the ME it is with iran... we have been at war with them since 1979... even though America ignores that war. If we ever go to war with iran, we had better fight like we did against Japan and Germany. We must fight all out and if they use nukes... we erase them from mankind. No more half measures and no more rules of engagement that favor the enemy and political correctness. That is what I am talking about.
