Should President Obama decide to order a military strike against Syria, his main order of business must be to kill Bashar Assad. Also, Bashar´s brother and principal henchman, Maher. Also, everyone else in the Assad family with a claim on political power. Also, all of the political symbols of the Assad family´s power, including all of their official or unofficial residences. The use of chemical weapons against one´s own citizens plumbs depths of barbarity matched in recent history only by Saddam Hussein. A civilized world cannot tolerate it. It must demonstrate that the penalty for it will be acutely personal
if we attack this regime i hope we bring down every kgb-stasi-trained secret police boss in the whole crew. they are almost as disgusting if not more repulsive than saddam´s crew. all you have to is read their titles and their biographical summaries and look at their photographs.
Don´t agree. We lost the moral high ground when we would not call evil by its name. We have been fighting a theo-political philosophy that we can´t even name. By doing so, we have only emboldened them. We had to so limit our scope of reference to direct atrocities that were committed by a rag tag group of terrorists who hi-jacked a peaceful religion instead of acknowledging the fact that their philosophy permeates the entire Muslim world. It is their call to arms.
Muslims have created violence and chaos to weaken us and then pull us into a real war with Russia and China. Don´t be stupid, Obama. This is a set up. The United States has never been so vulnerable. It is the perfect storm for our enemies. We have lost our moral compass. Our economy is in the toilet. Our country is bitterly divided. Our militarily continues to be weakened. Principled leadership is non-existent.
Like another article states today, our government says that they intercepted Syrian Army messages about initiating the gas attack. Why is it that they didn´t lead off with this so called information, instead of spitting into the wind for weeks on time. One lie follows another.
I for one don´t believe any information coming from the muddiest and most incompetent Administration ever. They aren´t to be trusted, and going up against Russia, Syria and China because Obama wants to prop up the Muslim Brotherhood is insane.
It´s time for this inept person to be impeached and removed from office. He actually thinks he´s royalty and as far as I can see, he is a prime example of the Peter Principle. One more thing, Assad has a far better looking and smarter first lady than we do. Another thought... give up on trying to start a Race War.
George W. Bush had to go to the UN and Congress to get authority to invade Iraq. Obama insisted on that when he was a Senator. Now, he is calling individual Congressmen informing them that he intends to do something.
Incidentally, why do people still call for impeachment? I would have thought that by now they would have realized that Obama has the Senate.
NO... Obama´s USA cannot impose the Muslim Brotherhood on still another country ...The Middle East is in flames because of Obama, Morsi and Ergogan. They are the trio of evil. Benghazi leads directly to this evil alliance. While Assad is no saint --there is NO proof he used WMD...more likely the more violent arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda...as they are the rebel fighter..and the WMD used are probably those that came from Benghazi from Brennan and Obama. Shall we start WWIII based upon unproven accusations and no proof? No. Stop shedding the blood of Americans in frivolous wars. Let the Muslim Brotherhood and IslamoFascists kill themselves off...They are evil and a nuisance to every country they reside in...nary a word on the Christian holicaust in the Middle East and Africa they´ve perpetrated with Obama´s help...
If we adhere to the Constitution, that pesky little, nuisance that Obama dislikes, and he and all in Congress swore to uphold and defend,does not allow this. Obama does not decide this on his own. He does not have permission or authority to do this despotically. But, that won´t stop him. He said if times get tough he would stand with the Muslims.Just because he might be killing other Muslims who got in his prideful way, is secondary. Keep that in mind. The welfare of Americans is trumped by his first allegiance to his Muslim friends. Nice to know.
The most evil person in the world and the only one I classify as an enemy is currently residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The others are just annoyances. If you kill Assad the only thing it accomplishes is to give a promotion to everyone else in that regime. No policies will change. This is like the Iraq Iran war. The longer it lasts the better it is for the civilized world. The war I care about is occurring here is the Divided States of America.
Obama gets a two-fer in syria. First he helps the muslim brotherhood, and second, he drives the U.S. deeper in debt and closer to brink of collapse. and the bonus is if russia gets involved, and WWIII looms, obama can declare martial law and become our dictator.
He forgot to call for Assad´s firstborn son. Syria is a mess. As usual, we are kept in the dark as to what the proxy war there is really all about. There´s oil, pipelines, Iranian nukes, Hezbollah, Israel, Russian naval facilities, al-Qaeda and the age old Sunni vs Shiah rivalry. Next to getting into a land war in Asia, this is a mistake to get involved in. If it´s being done to help save face for Obama it´s even worse. If we´re relying on Israeli intelligence for the WMD report it´s doubly worse. What would it take to get Obama to take another vacation?
Valarie Jarrett has to make a decision. Obama and Holder will have to put their ´race war´ on the back burner while WWIII looms. Obama should have been reviewing foreign policy and the middle east instead of meet and greeting sports jocks and celebrities in the WH. It´s not so much fun listening to your own droning voice when others don´t care about it. That ´red line´ speech was taken seriously by our enemies and Obama´s propaganda media (NBC, ABC et al) can´t fix this when the enemy is listening. BSing the American public in one thing but the world is another. Good luck ValJar with this one. This isn´t a bunch of movie critics that are all wee weed up this time like your Benghazi plan. This is the real deal.
Impeachment is something the House accomplishes. That allows for a discussion of the reasons for the proceedings. The Senate decides on removal. Clinton was Impeached, and that stands on his record forever.
"What´s at stake now is the future of civilization, and whether the word still has any meaning."
This piece is so over the top I can´t figure out if he is serious or not.
So, if he is serious, he is advocating destroying the murderous Shi´ite jihadi crescent that encircles Israel and is dedicated to her destruction, and replacing it with a murderous Sunni jihadi crescent that encircles Israel and is dedicated to her destruction. If the argument is that the US may, just may, have more influence over the Sunni jihadists than we do over the Shia jihadists, I wish someone would come right out and say it so we can all have a good laugh.
So, if we do manage to take out Assad and all of his minions, we will have created a political vacuum in Syria. And just who do you think will rush in to fill that vacuum? I really don´t think it would be someone with democratic elections and freedom in mind. That seems to be in very short supply through out the middle east. So, as many have already posted here, the best path to follow is to do nothing. Let the muslims fight each other. Of course this would mean that Obozo will lose face around the world, but, he doesn´t have any anyway.
Send in the drones. Isn´t there a drone somewhere with Assad´s name on it?
Or... gift him with some Fruit of Kaboom underwear, as Rush would call an underwear bomb... After all, his name is... Ass-odd...
Next, let´s have the GOP aim a Cruz missile at the O-Bomber himself... in 2014 & 2016...
But, seriously, folks... Syria is now spelled... Q-u-a-g-m-i-r-e... It´s a no-win for the U.S. Another Hill-err-ee-ass Herself mistake... Coming to dynamic fruition, as undergrads like to phrase it in their term papers...
What fresh Hell... What new Chaos... Will replace Assad Or is that locale (Syria) Bambi´s next choice for his post-impeachment exile now that being the Emperor of North Africa with the Muslim Brudda´s in da Hoodies in Egypt isn´t looking so good anymore?
Doesn´t Oreo still wannabe the King of De Nile defending DimcRat pyramid schemes with his Wookiee Cookie Empress wife? "Don´t Let Them Eat Cake!!" Exile over there not looking so good anymore, is it... ?
Is this a brilliant scheme someone has cooked up to come to the rescue of Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood? Purpotedly to deal with this use of chemical weapons . . . but somehow offload some help for the MB crew waiting in the wings?
We give the governments of the Arab League billions in military aid to protect their various regimes. but whenever someone in the ME gets out of line, they are quick to say they´ll stand behind us, but make no real committment.
This (like the Palestinian Refugees), is an Arab problem, Let them deal with it.
I confess that I haven´t read the article, only the headline. Nor have I read any of the comments which I try not to do since mine which is the latest will be located at the bottom of the queue and unread soooooo, how is assassinating Assad not Regime Change? How stupid can our government be to get involved in a conflict where our enemies are killing each other. I´m more interested in the next episode of Breaking Bad. Heisenberg for President!
with a muslim favoring traitor acting as imposter president, with his communist cabal in the back room pulling the strings, with an entire Congress paid off, bribed into guilt ridden silence, with a dying press and fools like O´Reilly, Sawyer, Brokaw, Stphanopoulis selling all of America SHORT, we have no chance of survival. Not even Mark Levin, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Sarah Palin and the growing numbers of heroes for truth, not even this valiant militia can save us from political Washington DC diseased ruin. Obama´s commie machine has carried on a non stop attack of attention getting violent distractions, race baiting, communist organizing, one less freedom after another, covering up the cover ups with more cover ups, burying the public in lies, after lies after lies. And the Diane Sawyers, just sitting there, letting it all happen without a whimper. This fabulous world of super communication that is deceptively controlled.

That´s funny that all of these Word Processor Warriors, who are so eager to enlist U.S. Forces to rescue the "poor Syrians", weren´t around when we were "helping the Iraqis rebuild". I guess I must have missed Mr. Stephens on my combat patrols. No doubt he was way at the front of the formation.
Earlier Tuesday, NBC News reported that President Barack Obama had shaken hands with Zimbabwean leader Robert Mugabe. However, the UK Telegraph´s Josie Ensor reported that Obama "was asked to take his seat just before reaching Mugabe." Complicating matters, another article in the UK Telegraph also claimed that Obama had shaken hands with Mugabe--in very similar terms to those used in the NBC article. Breitbart News caught the discrepancy--and suddenly the NBC News article was corrected, with no notice. Before: On his way to the rostrum, Obama also shook the hand of Robert Mugabe, the strongman ruler of Zimbabwe, and hugged Dilma Rousseff, the
The budget deal announced Tuesday by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) would boost federal spending by around $65 billion over the next two years. This new spending is offset by increasing user fees, boosting pension contributions by federal employees and the military, and other minor changes. Ryan and Murray also say that the deal will reduce the deficit by $23 billion over the next 10 years. This reduction, however, doesn´t start until 2022. According to a 4-page summary document of the deal obtained by Breitbart News, "[t]he budget proposal saves $28 billion over ten years by requiring
President Obama will extend his mini-amnesty for young illegals, said Cecilia Muñoz, White House director of domestic policy. “As long as this president” is in power, “you will be able to renew your deferred action,” Muñoz told one questioner during an online question-and-answer session on immigration conducted via Skype. So far, Obama’s deputies have granted the two-year “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” amnesty to at least 567,563 illegals, giving them the right to get jobs in every state, get drivers’ licenses in some states, to enroll in school and to receive government aid. Only 21,162 illegals have been rejected. Roughly 11 million
The White House insisted Wednesday that President Obama’s credibility had not been damaged by the botched rollout of Obamacare, despite a series of recent polls showing his diminished standing with the American public. "I don´t think I agree with that conclusion,” White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said of the assertion that fewer Americans trust the president because of broken promises over his signature domestic achievement. However, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found that 54 percent of respondents disapproved of the president’s job performance, driven mainly by the problem-plagued rollout of Obamacare. Fifty-eight percent of those surveyed said Obamacare was
The death of iconic South African leader Nelson Mandela prompted torrents of gushing praise from world leaders and media this week. Mandela was widely depicted as a near-flawless human being. BBC presenter Evan Davis said Mandela ranked near Jesus in the "pantheon of virtue"; Bono said Mandela was "stubborn ´til the end for all the right reasons, it felt like he very nearly outstared his maker." But the truth about Mandela is somewhat more shaded. He will be remembered for his magnificent legacy of racial unification in the aftermath of his release from prison in 1990. Mandela´s critics worried, not unreasonably,
Imagine if a provision in ObamaCare allowed Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to dictate directly to doctors which services they could and could not provide their patients—what individual tests they could conduct, which treatments they could offer, and medicines they could prescribe. Americans would be outraged. Yet some Republicans on Capitol Hill are about to help Democrats pass such a provision for Medicare patients. The Senate Finance Committee is set to vote on permanent "doc-fix" legislation Thursday that grants the federal government broad new authority to determine "applicable appropriate use criteria" for the full range of outpatient medical
Most of Washington seems to have bought the White House claim that the 36 federal exchanges are finally working, and glory, glory, hallelujah. But if that´s really true, then what explains the ongoing secrecy and evasion? On Wednesday the Health and Human Services Department continued its Victorian-era strip tease and allowed a glimpse into the Affordable Care Act´s "enrollment" for November. Out of respect for a free press, reporters ought to boycott these releases because they´re so selective that they reveal little about real enrollment. But we´ll try to parse the data as best we can without the White House high
Federal Spending: The hue and cry over the two-year budget deal masks the real threat facing the country — the vast and potentially permanent expansion of government by President Obama during his first five years in office. Michael Needham, who heads Heritage Action for America, called the budget deal put together by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., a "step backward." He´s right. The plan relies on some of the worst budget gimmicks around. It boosts spending in the next two years by $63 billion, for example, while spreading the promised $85 billion in cuts over 10 years. But it is,
Revelation: Colin Powell, George W. Bush´s secretary of state, has confirmed the suspicion that derailed his plan to run for president: He´s not just a liberal, but a socialist. It´s been a long time ago now, but Powell was once the dream Republican presidential candidate for a lot of pundits, campaign experts and ordinary Americans who appreciated his outstanding military service and pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps success story. Now we find that Powell is with the extreme left of the Democratic Party on health care, supporting European-style single-payer socialized medicine. "I don´t see why we can´t do what Europe is doing, what Canada is doing, what
Diplomacy: President Obama extended a hearty handshake to Cuba´s iron-fisted dictator Raul Castro just as the latter was beating up dissidents back home on the eve of Human Rights Day. No good will come of this. After six months of secret talks through Cuban emissaries — secrets kept from the American people, not Cuba´s dictatorship — the time seemed right for a flailing U.S. president and a dictator on the skids to shake hands and make nice at Nelson Mandela´s funeral in South Africa. For some shallow observers, it was all about Mandela´s legacy of everyone getting along. But it´s bad for the
So here’s the photo, my photo, which quickly lit up the world’s social networks and news websites. The “selfie” of three world leaders who, during South Africa’s farewell to Nelson Mandela, were messing about like kids instead of behaving with the mournful gravitas one might expect. In general on this blog, photojournalists tell the story behind a picture they’ve taken. I’ve done this for images from Pakistan, and India, where I am based. And here I am again, but this time the picture comes from a stadium in Soweto, and shows people taking a photo of themselves. I guess it’s a
Roberto Schmidt, a German-Colombian photojournalist based in India, saw a moment worth capturing at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service in Soweto, South Africa on Tuesday, and capture it he did: the ‘selfie’ taken by President Barack Obama along with two other world leaders and next to a p1$$3d-off seeming Michelle Obama, immediately went viral. Mediaite sure covered it, as did most internet publications, and by early afternoon it was gristle for cable news commentators on both the left and the right—much to Schmidt’s dismay. “It’s a sign of our times that somehow this image seemed to get more attention than the event
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there.

Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
