Obama threatens Assad
but misses the point

Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/4/2012 6:03:59 AM

The faltering regime of Bashar Assad reportedly is preparing to use chemical weapons against insurgents. President Obama responded by saying that such action would be “totally unacceptable” and that Assad would be held accountable for it. Secretary of State Clinton added that any use of chemical weapons by Assad would constitute “a red line for the United States” and that the U.S. would “take action” in response. It’s not clear to me what Obama means when he calls an action contemplated by a foreign government “unacceptable.” He has often used this word

They´re talking about sending 75,000 troops in there to find the chemical weapons and bring them out. That´s pure craziness.You can´t very well take them out with airstrikes either.

The media keeps saying Bashar wants to use these weapons on his own people but I have a hard time believing that. Nobody knows who these rebels are and he may be justified attacking them.It´s looks more to me like radical Islamists want to take over this whole reigon,not some foolish attempt at democracy.

Tyrants are not impressed with vague threats from little pipsqueaks. Obama might as well have screamed "I´m telling!"
We have not followed through and won a war since 1945. All we do is smack them and run away. They know this, and they know they can survive the smack because most do. Our words carry no truth and instill no fear.

Obama has to hurry, he only has four more years to complete the Islamification of the Mediterranean. Then they can restore the caliphate and work on the rest of the world.

Actually wasn´t it Hillary herself who called Assad a reformer? Is this stock of chemical weapons by chance the same that was carried out of Iraq by truck caravan that we saw in satellite images before the Iraq War? You know the one that all the leftist say never existed?

Wait, I thought barry didn´t approve of war? Or has he named it something else and, thus, it is just hunkey dorey? Or, instead of having to fire our military ´cause we can´t afford it, he sends it into a chemical attack and gets rid of it? After all, the american voters don´t seem to care if, due to his incompetence of malfeasance, our people are slaughtered.

In diplomatese, the warning that something is "unacceptable" is well known to mean it´s acceptable. It´s the debating society equivalent of the schoolyard taunt, "I dare you." And "totally unacceptable" ramps it up to "I double dare you." All with the same lack of fists flying.

In Obama´s case, the key determinant of whether he´ll follow through on the threat isn´t dependent on whether Assad will use the chemical weapons, but on whether there is a credible Islamist group ready to assume power from Assad. Take a look at almost every instance of action that Obama has taken in that region, such as Libya and Egypt, or not taken, as in Iran, and the common determinant is the presence of an Islamic power group. Conclusion: Obama is facilitating the overthrow of regimes by Islamic groups and protecting those already controlled by Islamic regimes. He´s building the caliphate.

You know, I read the comments here and am convinced that any one of you has more ability to run this country than the joker sitting in the White House. It is evident that his agenda is not in the best interests of this country. He is absolutely aiding the reformation of the caliphate. It is hard to wrap my brain around the fact that the American people voted in this Muslim appeaser so quickly after the tragedy of September 11th. Everything he has done has been to weaken this nation. Is half this country willfully ignorant? Nothing good will come of this. Obama is determined to break the United States of America.

Poster #8 has asked a good question. Last night on the Kudlow Report guest John Bachelor said the WMD were Sadam´s and transported there just prior to the Iraq war with the direction and assistance of the Russians. It has always been rumored that the weapons are in caves in the Bekaa Valley.

Why "W" never defended himself about the WMD is a mystery to me. The government had all the evidence necessary to make a strong argument that Iraq had move the WMD to Syria. But instead rolled over and said they were wrong because of bad intelligence.

To answer one of #19´s points, I believe that to be willfull, you have to know the truth and ignore it anyway. In the case of the Obama base, I believe it is just ignorance brought about by the deliberate intentions of the public school system and the media for the past 50 years. We are seeing the results of all that brainwashing now.

If Assad is willing to use Chem Weapons on his own people, I´m sure he´d be happy to use them on US troops. Nothing to lose at that point...

I´m still foggy on why Libya deserved US intervention and support of it´s insurgency and regime change, but not Syria and not Iran in 09. It would have been easier, considering GWB had managed to park the World´s Most Powerful Military literally between the two in Iraq. Seems we failed to execute on an obvious strategy.

IMO polite republicans and democrat "demogogues" have heard all the rumors connected with Obama, Ezekial 38, Isaiah 17:1, Matt. 24, etc, dismissed them as vague warnings or offensive Jewish calculation, are still OK with a NWO by any means possible, and are merely disappointed that the "amateurish" Obama styled plan is devolving into some feared international rebellion that is not going to end well. As nominal Christians -- meaning nothing like the Founders -- they will never risk calling America´s attention to this adavancing Biblical truth: in some prophetic age of trouble, after the rebirth of Israel, a man will distinguish himself as more than an enemy of what´s left of Christendom, more than a traitor deserving trial and punishment, and probably in a time when internationalist, politically corrected words have no useful meaning. This unstoppable man, or number of a man, or "abomination of desolation" who will make everything desolate, is "unveiled". And it is not explained how exactly such a number of a man can be officially "revealed." Is it by a proclamation, discussed by the Fox News All Stars? Is it with a Russian ukase, confirming all evil is now walking among us? Maybe the revealing is not meant for everyone. The Rapture, if there is one, is spectacularly revealed. We are told that some will not miss it, and it spans from the East to the West. Others, working at the mill, working in the fields will miss it. How exactly do you miss something like a Rapture? Suicide of the Soul. Counterfeit thinking, searing the conscience, empty of truth, chosen through free will, just as the "mark" will be chosen through free will, because some will have ceased to be a protected, separated, soul. Has Benghazi ceased to outrage you?

It´s not just the Russians who are all in behind Assad. It´s also the Iranians and Khamanei. The Revolutionary Guard are fighting in Syria. Hezbollah is fighting in Syria and very likely guarding the chemical weapons. al qaeda is utilizing suicide bombers in Homs. Turkey is itching to invade and if they do it will mean war with the Kurds. Syria´s the biggest hornet´s nest on the planet. By all means intervene Hillary, you go first.

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers.

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste.

The Obama administration is just fraud all the way down. U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming. Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures. Global temperatures haven’t risen in 15 years, but never mind that. Pay no attention to the Sun’s role in our climate. The UN report is set for release next week. Plenty of time to

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

The Pulitzer Prize board has just managed to do the impossible. It has awarded a prize that deserves to be spoken of in the same conversation with its risible 1932 award to the New York Times correspondent Walter Duranty for articles whitewashing the evils of Stalinist Russia. The award of the Public Service prize to the Washington Post and the Guardian for serving as a mouthpiece for Edward Snowden is an attempt by the journalistic establishment to put its stamp of approval on the actions of one of the most destructive traitors in U.S. history—a former NSA contractor who has done

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
