Obama threatens Assad
but misses the point

Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/4/2012 6:03:59 AM

The faltering regime of Bashar Assad reportedly is preparing to use chemical weapons against insurgents. President Obama responded by saying that such action would be “totally unacceptable” and that Assad would be held accountable for it. Secretary of State Clinton added that any use of chemical weapons by Assad would constitute “a red line for the United States” and that the U.S. would “take action” in response. It’s not clear to me what Obama means when he calls an action contemplated by a foreign government “unacceptable.” He has often used this word

They´re talking about sending 75,000 troops in there to find the chemical weapons and bring them out. That´s pure craziness.You can´t very well take them out with airstrikes either.

The media keeps saying Bashar wants to use these weapons on his own people but I have a hard time believing that. Nobody knows who these rebels are and he may be justified attacking them.It´s looks more to me like radical Islamists want to take over this whole reigon,not some foolish attempt at democracy.

Tyrants are not impressed with vague threats from little pipsqueaks. Obama might as well have screamed "I´m telling!"
We have not followed through and won a war since 1945. All we do is smack them and run away. They know this, and they know they can survive the smack because most do. Our words carry no truth and instill no fear.

And if Assad does use chemical weapons, Obama will stamp his feet a say he will be really, really mad if he uses them again....

Obama has to hurry, he only has four more years to complete the Islamification of the Mediterranean. Then they can restore the caliphate and work on the rest of the world.

Actually wasn´t it Hillary herself who called Assad a reformer? Is this stock of chemical weapons by chance the same that was carried out of Iraq by truck caravan that we saw in satellite images before the Iraq War? You know the one that all the leftist say never existed?

Wait, I thought barry didn´t approve of war? Or has he named it something else and, thus, it is just hunkey dorey? Or, instead of having to fire our military ´cause we can´t afford it, he sends it into a chemical attack and gets rid of it? After all, the american voters don´t seem to care if, due to his incompetence of malfeasance, our people are slaughtered.

In diplomatese, the warning that something is "unacceptable" is well known to mean it´s acceptable. It´s the debating society equivalent of the schoolyard taunt, "I dare you." And "totally unacceptable" ramps it up to "I double dare you." All with the same lack of fists flying.

In Obama´s case, the key determinant of whether he´ll follow through on the threat isn´t dependent on whether Assad will use the chemical weapons, but on whether there is a credible Islamist group ready to assume power from Assad. Take a look at almost every instance of action that Obama has taken in that region, such as Libya and Egypt, or not taken, as in Iran, and the common determinant is the presence of an Islamic power group. Conclusion: Obama is facilitating the overthrow of regimes by Islamic groups and protecting those already controlled by Islamic regimes. He´s building the caliphate.

You know, I read the comments here and am convinced that any one of you has more ability to run this country than the joker sitting in the White House. It is evident that his agenda is not in the best interests of this country. He is absolutely aiding the reformation of the caliphate. It is hard to wrap my brain around the fact that the American people voted in this Muslim appeaser so quickly after the tragedy of September 11th. Everything he has done has been to weaken this nation. Is half this country willfully ignorant? Nothing good will come of this. Obama is determined to break the United States of America.

Poster #8 has asked a good question. Last night on the Kudlow Report guest John Bachelor said the WMD were Sadam´s and transported there just prior to the Iraq war with the direction and assistance of the Russians. It has always been rumored that the weapons are in caves in the Bekaa Valley.

Why "W" never defended himself about the WMD is a mystery to me. The government had all the evidence necessary to make a strong argument that Iraq had move the WMD to Syria. But instead rolled over and said they were wrong because of bad intelligence.

To answer one of #19´s points, I believe that to be willfull, you have to know the truth and ignore it anyway. In the case of the Obama base, I believe it is just ignorance brought about by the deliberate intentions of the public school system and the media for the past 50 years. We are seeing the results of all that brainwashing now.

If Assad is willing to use Chem Weapons on his own people, I´m sure he´d be happy to use them on US troops. Nothing to lose at that point...

I´m still foggy on why Libya deserved US intervention and support of it´s insurgency and regime change, but not Syria and not Iran in 09. It would have been easier, considering GWB had managed to park the World´s Most Powerful Military literally between the two in Iraq. Seems we failed to execute on an obvious strategy.

IMO polite republicans and democrat "demogogues" have heard all the rumors connected with Obama, Ezekial 38, Isaiah 17:1, Matt. 24, etc, dismissed them as vague warnings or offensive Jewish calculation, are still OK with a NWO by any means possible, and are merely disappointed that the "amateurish" Obama styled plan is devolving into some feared international rebellion that is not going to end well. As nominal Christians -- meaning nothing like the Founders -- they will never risk calling America´s attention to this adavancing Biblical truth: in some prophetic age of trouble, after the rebirth of Israel, a man will distinguish himself as more than an enemy of what´s left of Christendom, more than a traitor deserving trial and punishment, and probably in a time when internationalist, politically corrected words have no useful meaning. This unstoppable man, or number of a man, or "abomination of desolation" who will make everything desolate, is "unveiled". And it is not explained how exactly such a number of a man can be officially "revealed." Is it by a proclamation, discussed by the Fox News All Stars? Is it with a Russian ukase, confirming all evil is now walking among us? Maybe the revealing is not meant for everyone. The Rapture, if there is one, is spectacularly revealed. We are told that some will not miss it, and it spans from the East to the West. Others, working at the mill, working in the fields will miss it. How exactly do you miss something like a Rapture? Suicide of the Soul. Counterfeit thinking, searing the conscience, empty of truth, chosen through free will, just as the "mark" will be chosen through free will, because some will have ceased to be a protected, separated, soul. Has Benghazi ceased to outrage you?

But who sits behind Assad guarding his rear... the Russians of course. Doesn´t sound like a fair fight to me, because the Russians aren´t afraid of Spanky and our military is wasting away in places like Afghanistan.

It´s not just the Russians who are all in behind Assad. It´s also the Iranians and Khamanei. The Revolutionary Guard are fighting in Syria. Hezbollah is fighting in Syria and very likely guarding the chemical weapons. al qaeda is utilizing suicide bombers in Homs. Turkey is itching to invade and if they do it will mean war with the Kurds. Syria´s the biggest hornet´s nest on the planet. By all means intervene Hillary, you go first.

Jimmy Carter must totally be smiling now as he no longer holds the mantle as the worst president in our history.

What absolutely baffles me is how so many people do not see how totally incompetent he is. If his utter cluelessness with Fast and Furious and his massive failure with Benghazi does not convince 50% of the coun
try that he is a bumbling fool, nothing can.

Ask any one of the morons who voted for this bafoon name one, just one accomplishment(and Bin Lades does not count because others forced his hand on that). No one can identify one accomplishement. Not one.

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Over 80 members of the Brandeis University faculty sent a letter to the school’s president earlier this month, demanding the school withdraw its honorary degree invitation to women’s rights activist and critic of Islam Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Brandeis rescinded the invitation to Hirsi Ali last week, prompting a public backlash from Hirsi Ali’s supporters. In the April 6 letter, faculty members called on Brandeis President Fred Lawrence to drop Hirsi Ali from the ceremony because of comments she has made about her opposition to Islam. “We are writing to urge you to rescind immediately the invitation to Ms. Ayaan Hirsi

Bad as Obama’s poll numbers are, they bode worse for Congressional Democrats. Obama is being buoyed by continued strong support from Democrat voters. The problem for Congressional Democrats is that November’s election outcome will not be determined in Democrat strongholds. Recent Quinnipiac polling data (released April 2, of 1,578 registered voters nationwide, with a MOE of +/-2.5%) showed the president with a deeply negative rating on his handling of the economy: 40% approval and 55% disapproval. In his sixth year in office, and the fifth year after the recession, 74% of respondents still rated the economy as “not so good” to

Ms. Burwell spent a little more than a year running Wal-Mart’s foundation before President Obama tapped her to be his budget chief last year — and then last week asked her to take over as health and human services secretary.

The Supreme Court has made pretty clear that putting your money where your mouth is deserves broad protection as a form of free political speech. The justices are about to consider whether outright lying in a campaign deserves a similar First Amendment shield. The court’s recent decisions easing the flow of generous campaign contributions already shifted the electoral landscape. If the court finds that even the most patently outrageous statements about candidates may not be barred by law, those two decisions combined could expand the rhetorical battlefield of the midterm elections and raise the attack ad volume as never before.

As soon as the photograph of Soviet propaganda posters in Jay Carney’s kitchen hit the Internet, right-wing pundits began to draw conclusions about White House Press Secretary’s ideology, morals, and political leanings. It was as if things that a man merely places on his walls and looks at day after day can be any indication of his life choices. If that were so, the meals in Carney’s kitchen would also probably match the menu of the place and time of the posters. His family would be living on a diet of beets, gruel, occasional rat, and thinly sliced boiled jackboots, which

McALLEN — Five words sealed the fate of the man who used to be the highest law enforcement official in Hidalgo County. “I plead guilty, your honor,” former Sheriff Lupe Treviño said Monday morning when asked for his plea on the charge of money laundering. Wearing a black suit with a white shirt and red tie, Treviño spoke loudly and clearly when responding to the questions made by U.S. District Court Judge Micaela Alvarez.

BUNKERVILLE, NEVADA—The Bundy Ranch roundup has understandably stirred thin-stretched emotions as the federal government seizes cattle belonging to the Bundy family. The family settled in the late 1800’s and has ranched in the area since. The federal government allowed Nevada ranchers to graze their cattle on federal tracts of land adjacent to their private properties for generations. The federal government later created the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to administer and “protect” the vast swaths of federal land—including the land the Bundy family’s livelihood was—and still is—dependent upon. The BLM began restricting ranchers’ usage of federal lands to protect various

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
