Obama: You Can´t Fathom
´Complexities´ of Syria
Policy ´If You Haven´t Been
in Situation Room´

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 6/18/2013 5:30:04 PM

Charlie Rose last night asked President Obama his new Syria policy. The president first objected to it being called a new policy. "I´m not sure you can characterize this as a new policy. This is consistent with the policy that I´ve had throughout," he said. Obama then explained the goal is regional stability, and especially in Syria. "Really, what we´re trying to do is take sides against extremists of all sorts and in favor of people who are in favor of moderation, tolerance, representative government, and over the long-term, stability and prosperity for the people of Syria," said Obama.

We fathom just fine Obama. So does this mean you actually stayed in the room this time? I mean, you didn´t leave when it actually came time to make a decision about something?

Heaven forbid you should actually be forced to do your job. It might put a cramp in your golf game or something.

Can´t you just picture Obama in the situation room with a deer-in-theheadlights look as adults try to explain to his choomed up mind what´s going on in Syria?

They must have been asking him to make a decision, but he´s never made an actual decision with consequences before.

He says "you can´t fathom the consequences of Syria policy" because there´s no way HE can comprehend anything more complicated than reading a teleprompter.

On the other hand, sometimes it requires distance to achieve proper perspective. Maybe the situation room is the wrong end of the telescope from which to view this matter. A policy of benign neglect seems the most sensible course to many Americans looking at this mess from far away. What national security interests does America have in the Syrian civil war? It is far from clear that the rebels are or are likely to become our friends. Why do we need to involve ourselves in this mess at this point? If there is an argument to be made for this, those in favor of involvement need to make it.

We should give a tip of the hat to Charlie Rose in this interview for challenging one of favorite dishonest rhetorical devices, the Straw Man argument. Obama claims he hears "people" saying "Let´s go in and knock out Syria" and Rose immediately challenged this. Who, pray tell, is demanding that we "knock out Syria?" What does "knocking out Syria" even mean? Obama pontificates that "knocking out" Syria would not be as simple and easy as whoever is urging such a course thinks. But he does not say, and I do not know, who advocates "knocking out Syria."

Obama uses this Straw Man ploy a lot. It is one of his chief rhetorical ploys. He is almost never challenged on it by anyone in the media.

Even if they don´t actually exist. We´ve pretended barbaric terrorists are really Jeffersonian democrats before. We know how to do that. What? "How did that work out?" you ask? Well -- oh, sorry. That´s my phone. Gotta take the call. See ya.

That was an airheaded, arrogant thing to say.
This administration is a collection of inept individuals, especially in the area of foreign policy.
Remember how Barack told us he had acquired special diplomatic skills because he had lived abroad? (age 6-10 in Indonesia)
Hillary the Hag was horrible as Secretary of State, and was replaced by an equally horrible John Kerry.

One of the reasons it´s so complex is the U.S. can´t seem to keep its mits out of other people´s business. Interference and manipulation breeds political complexity.

Solution: take a hands-off approach to Syria and everywhere else (but be ready to come to the aid of our allies if necessary).

He´s so full of bs. His policy, via Hillary, was always regime change. These bozo´s thought if they isolated Iran in the region they´d play nice with us. Stability, good guys, happy days in Syria were never a part of it. The only problem was we had a policy, but no plan. Obama and Hillary are the underpants gnomes of foreign policy.

In the meantime, they collected 30 free Obamaphones, and bought heroin and guns and party supplies, happy to save thousands on their EBT cards for summer block parties.

"See, Joe? I AM the smartest one in the room," he said full of attitude.

A hotel executive and Democratic fundraiser has pleaded guilty in New York to witness tampering and conspiracy to evade campaign finance laws. Sant Singh Chatwal appeared Thursday in federal court in Brooklyn. The candidates were not identified. Chatwal had raised at least $100,000 for Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton´s 2008 presidential campaign against Barack Obama. "Mr Chatwal deeply regrets his actions and accepts full responsibility for the consequences. He looks forward to resolving this personal matter," a spokesperson for Chatwal told CNBC on Thursday. According to the Justice Department, Chatwal made more than $180,000 in donations to three candidates via straw donors, who

Climate change is damaging fish brains and

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

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

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

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

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.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
