Why America Is Saying ´No´
Wall Street Journal, by Peggy Noonan

Original Article

Posted By:Maryland_Patriot, 9/6/2013 11:38:57 AM

It is hard, if you´ve got a head and a heart, to come down against a strong U.S. response to Syria´s use of chemical weapons against its civilian population. This is especially so if you believe that humanity stands at a door that leads only to darkness. Those who say, "But Saddam Hussein used chemical weapons—the taboo was broken long ago," are missing the point. When Saddam used gas against the Kurds it was not immediately known to all the world. It was not common knowledge. The world rued it in retrospect. Syria is different: It is the first obvious,

I´m saying no because the opposition, who we would be helping by attacking Assad, is as bad or worse than Assad. Do we REALLY want to act as al qaeda´s proxy air force? I certainly don´t.

America is saying no because no one in their right mind would follow this man into battle. This is fundamental to how people think. People will only follow someone that they trust, and this is why the Brits voted this insane military action.

I didn´t see it like #1. But no matter. It is very sloppy writing.

However her main point is right: America is fed up with Washington; all of the parts of Washington.

Some blame the WH, some the Congress, some on regulation. But each of those is regarded with contempt by record numbers of citizens.

The reluctance about Syria largely comes from the disgust with Washington.

The MSM pundits can´t bring themselves to admit they are part of that Washington that few believe anymore. They will figure it out.

The sanctimony of this president, who sells his proposed actions as necessary to "preserve universal prohibition of chemical weapons use," belies the fact he made his bones ignoring the more murderous gassing of Kurds by Sadam Hussein, when he opposed armed conflict with that regime. He has already demonstrably shown his tolerance for such actions, so his new revulsion must be based on other motivations. I suggest he is not above carrying us to war as a diversion from his other unresolved scandals, which this unquestionably has done.

Of course his motivations may stem more from his and his advisors´ incompetence than from their political malevelance, but I doubt we can differentiate until we know what Valerie thinks about it...and she is not talking.

History has shown that whenever an Arab strong-man fall, the Islamist Terrorists take over almost before the door´s closed. Happened in Iran, Egypt, Libya and, probably, to our Afgan buddies as soon as we leave. Iraq´s the only exception - so far, but they´ve got violence.

So what is the reason for this new move to not have the house vote on War with Syria? It is war after all, and the American people know it means war. Is it really about protecting Demonrats from the wrath of the public and the push back in 2014? After all, the One will do anything, use any means to control both houses of congress after 2014 for the completion of his Marxist/communist agenda and his vaunted "Legacy".

I am saying no because:
1. The rebels will begin slaughtering Christians the moment they get the chance.
2. The rebels will gladly slaughter Americans the moment they get the chance.
3. President Obomba has shown he has no problem abanoning our personnel to die at the hands of jihadists.
4. I think we have done enough damage already in Libya and Egypt and,
5. I really don´t want to see World War 3 with nuclear weapons start anytime soon.

Russia has published a 100 page report proving with every bit as much certainty, in fact considerably more technical explanation than Obama´s and Kerry´s supposed proof, that the rebels used sarin gas in at least one incident prior to August 21. I think, no matter the support O/K get from the MSM, most people realize the fact of who launched the gas attack on 8/21 is still not proved beyond a doubt. A normal person is not going to support a strike that could result in the very perpetrators of the atrocity being put into power in place of the unjustly accused. I think that has a lot to do with Obama´s lack of support.

America is not the world´s nanny or policeman.

For America to be justified in attacking any other nation, there have to be clear US interests involved.

Øvomit has not even tried to show where there are ANY US interests involved in the Syrian civil war. It is simply bad guys fighting bad guys for who will rule the common Syrian people with an iron fist. There are no winners, just lots of losers.

But they are not OUR problems. And to waste a single dime of American tax money, or risk a single American life, for Øvomit´s Folly is not something I will ever support!!!

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

The man, described as being between the ages of 25 and 30, went behind the stage and entered the “Thunder from Down Under” locker room about 9 p.m. According to police, he stole belongings from the group. Several performers from the show later confronted the suspect when they saw him with their property, police said. The suspect then pulled out a handgun and a struggle ensued.

Frustration with the search for missing flight MH370 boiled over into chaotic scenes as Chinese relatives were dragged away from journalists. They were attempting to speak to Chinese journalists outside the daily press conference in Kuala Lumpur. A BBC reporter was pushed away from the relatives, who were carrying banners criticising the handling of the case. Teams from 26 countries are trying to find flight MH370, which went missing on 8 March with 239 people on board. One of the relatives, a middle-aged woman, cried: "They give different messages every day! Where´s the flight now? Find our relatives! Find the aircraft!" The Malaysian government said

The anguish of relatives of the 239 people on Flight 370 boiled over at a briefing near Kuala Lumpur´s airport. Two Chinese women who shouted at Malaysian authorities and unfurled a banner accusing officials of "hiding the truth" were removed from the room.

The Associated Press has stepped up its attack on White House efforts to block coverage of events involving President Obama, warning that once access is cut, “we´ll never get it back.” In the latest media charge that the White House has reneged on promises to be “transparent,” two of AP´s White House staff told a convention in Denver this week that the president´s team often bars coverage of Obama events because they are “hypersensitive” about his Image. At the Newspaper Association of America´s mediaXchange convention in Denver, AP White House photographer Charles Dharapak said that instead of letting reporters and photographers in

"Women are still the ones that are carrying the greatest burden when it comes to trying to balance family and work," President Obama said last week to a group of women who serve in the U.S. Congress. With this in mind, he is now planning a "White House Summit on Working Families" to take place this summer. Obama is no doubt preparing to cast stones at the private sector. He really ought to look at his own administration.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
