Obama´s shocking case for
attacking Syria: Gruesome series
of videos taken in aftermath of
gas attacks that White House is
using in closed-door briefings
to persuade lawmakers to back US strikes

Daily Mail (UK), by Staff

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/8/2013 5:33:01 AM

President Barack Obama has been showing an officially-verified collection of 13 graphic videos to lawmakers that depict the horrors of the chemical gas attacks in Syria in behind-closed-door briefings - as he lobbies to win approval for his plan to use military force against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. So far, support for the president´s plan has been sparse, with even fellow Democrats opposing the use of military force in Syria. He is preparing a media blitz for Monday and promised Americans in his weekly address on Saturday that ´This would not be another Iraq or Afghanistan.´ CNN first

Nothing we read here shows that Assad launched this chemical attack. Where´s the proof? What if Zippy´s Bro´-hoodies did it?

It´s obvious what they are going to do.

Liberals look at everything emotionally. All of their decisions are based on feelings.

They think they can pull the heart strings of the American people by showing horrible pictures of people being killed, and that alone with change their minds. It may work, but then again it may no.

IF anyone has the guts to stand up and ask BO, where is the proof that Assad did this to these people, then he won´t have the support.

Pictures tell a story. However BO´s own words are rhetoric and the people know it.

Hmm, reminds me of the scene in 1984 where the sheeple are watching a movie in the theater about the war with Oceania, showing piles of their dead to get them all riled up and support Big Brother, who truly loves them.
Or the propaganda films of so called Polish atrocities used by Hitler to justify his invasion of Poland 74 years ago this month.

Sorry, color me skeptical. I watched the video at the linked govt site and I am not convinced. I am an RN who used to work the ER at a very busy trauma center. I have had my share of dead people. Some of the "dead" bodies didn´t ring true to me. Same with the "convulsing" people. And I thought sarin gas caused vomiting/defecation? All "victims" looked very clean. It would take way more than this to convince me that the US should get involved.

"Anecdotes are the great enemy of of logic". This is why the ´Rat pukes like to use anecdotes. Recall all the asinine anecdotes that were used to "convince" legislators that the government should take over health care? Especially by the pathetic Pelosi.

Why can´t that loser in the White get a rational argument assembled for his war? That is a rhetorical question. We all know he and his gang have no rationality. Everything for him is personal, and mostly driven by who he hates or what he feels. The mindless statists and the DNC media goofs have no real concern for people, they just want to advance their control.

We all know he loves the Brotherhood because they share his bigotry. But what possible outcome is he pursuing that would be a benefit to America? Again, a rhetorical question.

Who took the videos. What did our intelligence verify, that the videos are videos. In it´s last report on Syrian war crimes the UN said to forget the chemical weapons attacks that had occurred to that point. Their are regular atrocities committed by both sides as bad or worse. Syria has devolved into hell on earth. A few American bombs won´t change that.

Where are the videos of Muslims in Africa burning Christian Churches full of worshipers? Those trying to escape are hacked to death by machetes.
How often has that happened with not a word from the administration?
How about the persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt? The beheading of the priest and his assistants?

Interesting to note that this is not a presentation of facts but rather an appeal to emotion - "Look at the horror!" instead of "It was launched from here, by this weapons system, at this time."

Being lead around by the greatest "feeling" rather than any proof is not way to run a country, but then again, Obama has been running things in an unfit fashion for five years...why stop now?

The Russians pretty well proved the rebels have and had chemical weapons (sarin gas). We know Assad has them. Obama has not proved who did this. So who did it? Only the rebels benefit from it so they have to be most suspect. We should not enter this war on the side of the rebels until we know Assad did it.

If the evidence is so irrefutable, then why isn´t Assad and company on trial for war crimes? Try these war criminals in absentia at the Hague, rather than lobbing a few meaningless (but very expensive) Tomahawk missles. Perhaps we might even get more of our European allies on board with this alternative. A trial at the Hague would hold Assad just as accountable, be less prejudicial in the civil war, and would carry far less risk of escalation into a wider war.

Made by the Masters of Deceit, Marxists. Glenn Beck fell for the rebel eating the heart of a Syrian soldier to whip up his masses and the truth is elusive in the Muzzie and Russian propaganda war.

PC has lost folks and the only way to stop the madness if for the GOP to win Congress through the people.

Tea party Patriots a real force for helping save the nation if they leave their social issues and Jesus First pins on the back burner. Dog whistle it to the base not as Bachman and Akin did and knock themselves out of the race. The Masters of deceit know exactly how the nation feels about anything. And they will use it "the children of darkness being wiser in the ways of the world than the children of light".

Marx invented the discipline of sociology which led to Alinsky and mind manipulation, people-movers and -controllers and the awful state we are in--they used our goodness to do it-they used our sense of fair play to do it. They know us, we do not know them but we can. We can turn off the TV, toss out the print media and opinion magazines and take a crash course in how to sort out the truth. prayer is a big one, fasting and praying as the Pope ordered/suggested.

The Art of War super/warrior won by knowing his enemies and never doing the predictable. We could do the same. Read Aldous Huxley´s "Brave New World, revisited"...probably on-line free. Going back to the source provides opportunity for insights that opinion pieces of it sliced and diced and served up with the opinion of others.

Huxley predicted the Brave New World (Order) and thought it would take 500 years. It has taken less than one hundred. Time speeding up?

1. Didn´t Stinky do the same after the sicko Muslim brothers bombed the Boston Marathon? Showing raw video of the ragged bloody limb-stumps, the surgeries and their aftermaths, the follow-on surgeries, the half-healed limb-stumps when he was gathering support for giving the Muslim world that good, long, well-past-due harsh trip behind civilization´s woodshed he administered? /s [do I really have to say that?]

2. Let´s not forget Step 1 and Step 2 in the huff-and-puff over Who-Shot-John: 1. Find out what it´s really about [Obama in trouble? Russia´s gas line?]; and 2. what really is in our power to do and control [especially follow-on events]? Assuming what others will do "after" presumes perfect knowledge of their values and their [rational] thinking. "Who did it" presumes we must do "something."

#7: Stinky doesn´t "condone" abortion. He celebrates it, and passed a law to extend it to born-alive babies.

#12: Stinky couldn´t get a rational argument for any of his policies or positions even if there was a place to rent them.

#17: Indeed! And Stinky´s "selective"" outrage is also phony.

#21: Not to mention that his manipulate-the-emotions approach: a. disparages the intelligence of the Senators and Representatives [well, as if they really have any]; and b. certainly does not lead to sober consideration of consequences or even whether we can accomplish anything Stinky says we will.

First: I think Sarin was used and it is likely that the Assad regime did it.

Second: I do believe it is clearly a war crime of the sort that used to get people hanged. I would be delighted if the person who gave the order and those who carried it out ended up like Saddam.

Third: I think the civilized world would be unwise to merely wink at letting this genie out of the bottle. I nerve agent use comes without consequences, then what about biological agents? Radiation-based weapons like a dirty bomb? Or, a full nuclear blast?

That said, I am not sure what the goal is here or why tearing up some airport runways somehow balances the great scale of justice for such an atrocity.

Is the goal to downfall of the Assad regime? If so, do we care who replaces them and gains access to the chemical weapon stocks? Or, is it to somehow teach the Assad regime a lesson while they stay in power?

What is our plan if things escalate, for example via an attack on Israel or a terrorist retaliation on our embassies? Are we ready for a civil war on one country (with both factions reprehensible) to spread into a wider regional shooting war where we have an ally to defend?

If this is critical to protect this region, then where are the other Arab nations? Why doesn´t them jump in to punish Assad? This is creating a massive refugee problem in their back yards, yet they seem curiously disinterested in doing anything about it directly.

This look like improv at the club on open mike night, not a sober foreign policy discussion.

Syria, a sovereign nation, did not sign the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1996.  The present conflict affects only Syrians.  This conflict is not an international dispute; it´s a civil war initiated by insurgents and fought entirely in Syria.

And according to our law it cannot exist.” Critics alleged that Snowden appeared in a scripted manner,

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff.

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

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

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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

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,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million
