White House: Syria crosses
´red line´ with use of chemical
weapons on its people

CNN, by Barbara Starr, Jessica Yellin*

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/13/2013 9:48:27 PM

Washington- Syria has crossed a "red line" with its use of chemical weapons, including the nerve agent sarin gas, against rebels, a move that is prompting the United States to increase the "scale and scope" of its support for the opposition, the White House said Thursday. The acknowledgment is the first time President Barack Obama´s administration has definitively said what it has long suspected -- that President Bashar al-Assad´s forces have used chemical weapons in the ongoing civil war. "The intelligence community estimates that 100 to 150 people have died from detected chemical weapons attacks in Syria

The so-called rebels swear allegiance to Al-Queda [sp] and we are both going to arm them and import their refugees to the U.S.? I always hoped I and my loved ones would be safely gone by the time our government went totally mad but it looks like we will not make it that far.

Funny, the Liberals did not seem to mind when Saddam Hussein did something similar - he ordered his planes to spray Sarin gas on his fellow countrymen in the city of Halabja. Colin Powell showed videotape of this attack to the UN. But Bush and Cheney were still Satanic liars, and we should never have gone into Iraq. Right.

Only 150 killed with gas while over 72,000 killed by "conventional" means in Syria?

When you´re dead, you´re dead. Why the hair splitting except to create the usual obama drama? His Nobel Peace Prize becomes more of a joke all the time.

We´re backing the rebels who just killed a 14 year old boy for not being respectful of Mohammad in a very teenage way. What is wrong with obama so he thinks this is ok?! Obama is truly not a leader. I was talking with someone the other night who regrets voting for him but its too late for that.

Our foreign policy is a mess and has been for some time. It is time the policy was once again predicated on our best interests and not the best interests of 7th century barbarians. We have lost our credibility around the world and especially here at home. When you desert the moral high ground to appeasement, it is very dangerous. It is time Western civilization abandons political correctness and deals with the actual threat facing the entire globe, radical Islam. The world has turned a blind eye to the atrocities that are committed in the name of this "religion" and to what end, more atrocities. Obama has created chaos in the Middle East and done nothing but appease Muslims here and abroad. Syria is not our problem, it is a world crisis. Obama, like the rest of Western civilization, does not have any intention of confronting Islam and until they do stand together against this evil, nothing will change. The only solution is our victory and their defeat. Anything less is wasting American lives to make our politicians feel better. It appears we have lost the moral courage that is required to defeat evil. We can´t even name it. Muslims know it and will continue to use it as a weapon to destroy us.

We are all probably pretty tired of this artificial reasoning/propaganda that use of chemical weapons are a trigger point for any US intervention. Besides look at the parties involved. This assisting the Sunni cause in the Middle East by the US needs to stop but the Islamo Commies in DC, who have hijacked our foreign policy, apparently see it differently. The premise yet another Middle East leader is treating his people wrong(now in Turkey) is getting seriously old/dated. The US needs to stay/get out of Syria. Call the Sunnis in Saudi Arabia and tell them to put some real skin in the game if it´s so important to overthrow Assad. We know Obama is afraid to get too in involved in Syria and if he does he risks US war with Russia.

How many little false Obie outrages of Syria use of chemical weapons are we going to have to go through? Oh the drama. Shut up John McCain we are not giving heavy weapons to pro Al Qaeda forces.

Remember what Doug Hagmann’s DHS Insider forecast exactly one week ago? Hagmann relayed DHS Insider’s ominous forecasts in a report Hagmann titled “DHS insider: It’s about to get very ugly,” and those forecasts included:

. . . This administration considers anyone telling the truth about Benghazi, the IRS . . . ‘betrayal,’” . . . .

. . .

. . . It’s about the upcoming censorship of the internet in the name of national security. . . .

. . .

“First, they intend to use the Justice Department to silence journalists . . . . They will use a host of national security policies, laws, letters, whatever to take out the bigger threats,” . . . .

Next, they will use some sort of excuse, an external threat, and I believe it will be a combination of the economic collapse and a Mid-East war that will begin in Syria to throttle the information that is accessible on the Internet. . . .”

This is a civil war and backing the rebels who will eventually want to kill us, the infidels, is not an option.

This is nauseating

How many years has the al-Assad clan ruled Syria with thuggery and murderous acts, waging actual war in Israel and supporting worldwide terrorism?

Since 1971, through the mechanism of the Ba´athist party.

But now America has to get involved? And nakedly support Al-Qaeda? Who our government fighting Syria in a proxy war tells us they´re fighting in Afghan and Iraq.

This is dumber than dumb.

This is nation-ending level of criminality in Washington.

By the way, Barky is going to accept Syrian Brotherhood´s immigration. That just what we need, more Mid Eastern bombers. Weren´t the Boston bombings enough of a hint even for a lazy Chicago crook. Just go to Africa on your 100 million dollar trip and stay.

So, we hear nothing from Obama since his playground boast about crossing a red line, then Bubba steps up and makes a few remarks, now all of a sudden Obama is engaged and menacing?

Not only going to arm the rebels who have pledged loyalty to Al Quaida, but also wants to bring thousands of Syrian refugees here to live.

Another example of leading from behind and not letting a crisis go to waste to further The Cause.

Working, thinking, citizens have no say in the killings our warring "leaders" create.
The only people who control or influence our government are those silent huge masses on welfare, food stamps, unemployment, drug dealers, gun wielding drug gangs, all illegal aliens, all non essential, useless government bureaucrats, filthy lobbyists, of course, all those that live off the State. The government takes from the "working" families and gives to all of the above "taking" individuals and groups who are silent and who do not complain about our government´s illegal warring ways. The point of this story is that our government has successfully SILENCED all of those named above. There are no outspoken citizens or whistleblowers in these "paid-off" money sucking groups. Our government and Congress droids have created a "Silent Society" to go along with any criminal breach of law our warring Congress wants to commit. And protecting the whole Washington mess is Diane traitor-to-the-truth Sawyer and her chorus of other over paid news actors who all recite only The Party Line (to those not familiar, that refers to the old American Communist Party Line), that is, only rigid, controlled beliefs. Yeah, it´s sickening to see ruination taking place in this great country. Along with honest truth tellers, like Drudge, Andrew Napolitano, Mark Steyn and others, we need more Civil Disobedience from the likes of Breitbart and Snowden.

Two things I have learned by watching our involvement in the Middle East over the past 40 years:
1) We feel compelled to get in the middle of fights we don´t understand...which is followed by people using the weapons we supplied to kill our soldiers.
2) Many times the countries ends up more radical and hating us more. I think Afghanistan was better off with Russia in control than the Taliban, and Libya and Egypt were less volatile before the muslim brotherhood took over.

Bottom line is there will NEVER be peace in the middle east.
So we just need to ask Israel what action we can take that would help their security and forget McCain and Obama´s opinions on the matter.

fta: The U.N. estimates that more than 92,000 people have been killed since the conflict began in March 2011

So killing another 100 to 150 with chemical weapons is the trigger point (aka red line)?

As far as ´WMD´s are concerned, modern high explosives are far deadlier than the typical chem weapon.

In fact you have crossed so many of my redlines despite the fact that I kept moving the goalposts to make things easier for you. Look, personally I like you. I wish I could do what you do to those that disagree with you.

Here´s what I am going to do. You know those guns we ran through Benghazi? Some I will give to the Muslim Brotherhood. They still like you, right? Next I will run everything through the UN. Next I will form a bipartisan blue ribbon panel to decide the best approach for me to take.

So many decisions, I need a vacation, hopefully without Moochelle.

Listen, this whole thing will blow over if you just lay low for a little while.

PS I´ll be in Africa in the next couple of weeks, so you know how to get hold of me, right?

Sen. John Cornyn (R., Texas) is demanding answers from Attorney General Eric Holder on the Justice Department’s pursuit of “smart gun” technology, warning that the government could require all gun owners to wear biometric bracelets to operate their firearms. Cornyn sent a letter to the attorney general on Wednesday in response to remarks he made in testimony before a House subcommittee earlier this month, which were first reported by the Washington Free Beacon. Holder said his agency is “exploring” technology to make guns “more safe.” “By making them either through finger print identification, the gun talks to a bracelet or

An army of NYPD cops on Thursday evicted a homeless man from his Manhattan Bridge “home” — which was complete with a gas heater, hot sauce and beer. A dozen officers from both the 5th and 84th Precincts plus four Emergency Service Unit cops launched the raid about 9:50 a.m. A DOT worker on a ladder first used bolt cutters to remove a red bicycle lock on the wooden structure — which turned out to be fully insulated with Styrofoam and a large tarp. “Police department!

NATO announced Wednesday that it is enhancing its military footprint on its eastern flank, and the alliance’s top military commander in Europe hinted that in light of Russia’s recent aggression, it is “important that we take a pause and determine what is appropriate for [the size of] U.S. forces in Europe.” The number of U.S. troops in Europe has dropped dramatically since the Soviet Union collapsed. More recently, the Obama administration has touted its “pivot” to Asia. Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen.

With total student loans exceeding $1 trillion, one must ask “is the tassel worth the financial hassle” when it comes to spending for prestigious colleges. Here’s my rough rule of thumb for taking on student loan debt: “Think long and hard about taking on more in total student loans than you expect to earn, on average, in your first 10 years after graduating.” That’s a mouthful so let me put some numbers on it. If you expect your average annual income over the first 10 years you are out of school to be $50,000, be really, really careful about taking

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Book: White House scrambled

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

Earlier today, Judicial Watch made public a batch of documents that it received from the IRS in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. The documents consists of a series of emails relating to the IRS’s treatment of applications for 501(c)(4) status from “Tea Party” or otherwise conservative organizations. I am still working my way through the emails, but have a few preliminary observations. First, the most significant ones I have seen so far have already been widely discussed. The email below documents a call from the Department of Justice about whether non-profits that “lied” about doing political activity

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

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

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

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

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

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

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

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

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
