chemical weapon

The Hill [Washington DC], by Jonathan Easley

The chairs of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees said Tuesday briefings lead them to believe Syrian President Bashar al Assad has crossed President Obama’s “red line” and used a chemical weapons on his citizens, and that U.S. military action should be taken once this is confirmed. “This is highly classified and we have been advised to be careful with what we say,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on CNN. “I’m told that the White House has been briefed…and the White House has to make some decisions in this.

Ohhhh Nooooo. The RED LINE !. But there is still the blue line, the yellow line and green line. After that the purple and pink and white lines.

I don´t believe a thing our government tells us. I heard somewhere else it was the rebels (ie the ones Obama is backing) that deployed the chemicals. So that would be the Obama using chemical weapons, indirectly.

Besides, there are no chemical weapons in the middle east... Bush lied about that so we know their cannot be chemical weapons there.

Obama is looking for an excuse to oust Assad. He will do anything to get the Islamic rebels installed to power.

Is it coincidence that this story breaks the evening that Dear Behind Leader departs for Israel, Palestine & Jordan? Obama can plead ignorance or use diplomatic courtesy to avoid the issue. Obama can postpone a response for 6 days, and by then the WMD story is old news.

Or, Obama can blame the Republicans and their defense cuts for not being able to respond."Our aircraft carriers have maxed out their fuel budgets, and must remain in port until GOP comes to it senses."

Or, he can tell us that the FBI will investigate, just like Benghazi. But no matter what, the Repubs should not urge military air strikes. Let Obama ask for authorization and explain why it is in our Interest to hasten a radical Islamist takeover of Syria,

This is a total pantload. Where are they getting their intelligence? From the rebel leaders and a Reuters photographer who was in the hospital where the victims were treated. A medic on the ground in Aleppo reported these people were overcome by pesticides, not chemical weapons. They smelled pungent odors, chemical weapons are most often odorless. This is an attempt by the new leaders of the opposition to force the West to arm them. It´s no coincidence the opposition just named a prime minister wholly owned by the Brothers. The UK and France are looking for any pretense to send arms to the rebels.

I want to know where these chemical weapons came from and which side deployed them. If Obama wants to go to war, let him make the case to the People. Bush was attacked in the press for claiming that Iraq had purchased yellow cake. When American troops arrived in Iraq, they found something like 2000 tons of yellow cake or the equivalent of 10 tractor trailer trucks.

Oliver North was on Hannity tonite and insisted that the videos coming from those hospitals showed no signs of people recovering from chemical weapons attack...and he´s had first-hand experience.
I wish Hannity had let him talk more extensively, but Sean kept trying to make a point about Obama´s cowardly foreign policy. Yes. We all know how he operates by now, but I wanted to know more about what North believed was really going on over there.

Who is Assad fighting? Where are the pictures of the 70,000 alleged deaths? Where is the UN on this?...they usually don´t pass up an opportunity to make money on civil conflict.
This whole things stinks like rotten eggs.

He claims he used to make white lines disappear up his nose in college. He´ll have no trouble getting rid of a couple red lines in Syria and Iran.
Whatta complete joke!? But he must provide the bad guys with a few chuckles with his empty blustering... You know the Chinese and the Iranians read him like a book. And Syria ignores him.

Nobody really knows what to do to solve this situation so they have to make a super villain out of Assad to justify a NATO attack on him.People should know by now that anything Obama is for,you should instinctively be against it.

Obama probably figured Assad would quietly give up power after seeing Mubarak and Gadaffi taken down and it didn´t happen.Assad decided to stay and fight and now Obama´s stuck and is working NATO to do his dirty work.


Sen.Rubio is all on baord for these so called rebels just like he was on board for getting rid of Gadaffi.

I´m sorry but I´m leery of Rubio and Paul as presidential candidates if it comes down to it.

You´d think after the ass-whippin Senator Frankenstein took on the weapons ban that she´d be embarrassed to open her mouth for awhile.

Of course, I thought the same thing when Hillary Clinton was utterly humiliated by the philandering that "Horn Dog" engaged in with a young female intern in the oval office.

I guess not. Shame is not in the dictionary used by democrat women.

Deja vu all over again. Building a justification for war. One sometimes wonders whether the Iraqi people might now be overthrowing Saddam Hussein as well, if we had just resisted our urges to nation build. Hindsight, a wonderful thing. Also known as learning from history.

But Syria? As near as I can tell, it is one group of savages fighting against another group of savages. How to pick a side? Why do we care?

And then there is Obama. Assad had better watch out for that Red Line. Barack might give a very stern speech. He might even scowl. Oh no!

Rogers, you are being played as a SAP. First get evidence that a weapon of mass destruction was used (keep in mind you can kill one person easily with the chemicals in your bathroom). Then make sure who used the weapon. Until you know all that, keep your mouth shut.

right #3, #6, #21. Bamboozler´s Arab Spring was cake in Libya and Egypt but now has hit an impasse/stalemate as Assad is no pushover. The admin hinted at the red line of Assad use of chemical weapons a long time ago, probably hoping they would, as justification to ramp up U.S. involvement. NO dice-just a fantasy. So now DC commies are pulling the slot machine handle again trying to get triple fruit for keys to the Syrian kingdom. In the meantime, they use Feinstein in a repeat of the Rice/Benghazi role modus to submit an idea w/out the White House committing to it. Sooo predictable.

It´s obvious bamboozler Inc feel they need Syria(to turn Muslim Brotherhood) in a kind of coming axis against Israel and their objectives are not being met. That´s just great! They know they need a big stick to use against Israel and are using the outcome of the 1960´s Six Day War as a model for what it will take.

It´s amazing what time does to the democrat mind, ´change´. We were told by democrats Bush lied and there were no weapons of mass destruction and Bush wanted a revenge war and oil for his cronies. Now 5 years later there are WMDs and the left wants a war. Liars!
I say let them duke it out it´s on muslims killing muslims in their country.
Obama left town and can´t be reached unless Morgan Freeman calls. Jay Carney will tell us the president will be home soon to move the red line a little further for some breathing room. Maybe a WH party with celebrities or a golf outing to sooth his brilliant mind.

Another Gulf of Tonkin incident? In 1964 LBJ ordered attacks on North Vietnam because he said they had attacked our destroyers in the Gulf of Tonkin. Only they hadn´t, it was just an excuse to attack North Vietnam. That led to our invasion of South Korea at Danang and the Vietnamese war.

We´ve been chomping at the bit to attack Syria and Assad. Assad knows that. He knew the use of WMD would trigger that attack. Why would he use insignificant amounts of WMD . . . just enough to trigger a US attack? Does Assad have a death wish? Would the Musbro rebels fighting Assad stoop to such levels to get the US involved? Which makes more sense?

Sure smells like Tonkin to me.

If you’ve ever wondered how the United States got in to its current mess of a stagnant economy and out-of-control government, I have a suggestion. Take a good look at what a handful of voters in one of America’s finer suburbs did to themselves and the rest of their community, and realize that it is a microcosm for what’s happening all across the country. The city in question is Seatac, a small suburb in the state of Washington (it’s name is derived from the larger neighboring cities of Seattle and Tacoma).

Nearly a generation ago, MSNBC´s Chris Matthews coined a description of our two political parties that may turn out to be his most enduring contribution to American punditry. Republicans, Matthews wrote, were the "Daddy Party," all about military security and self-reliance; Democrats were the "Mommy Party," all about health, education and nurturing. At the time, in 1991, Democrats weren´t sure they considered that much of a compliment. Since then, a long line of Democratic presidential candidates — including one who is an actual mommy, Hillary Rodham Clinton — have taken pains to prove they could be as tough and decisive

Lerner, who was the Director of the IRS Exempt Organizations division during the supposed targeting, has thus far invoked the Fifth Amendment in front of Issa’s committee. “We believe the evidence we’ve gathered causes her, in her best interest, to be someone who should testify,” Issa said.

PEREVALNE, Ukraine— Just inside the main gate to the military base, four young Ukrainian soldiers stood in the middle of the road, as if somehow they alone could stop what was on the other side. They were hardly an intimidating group. They were young and unarmed and didn´t look like they had ever been anywhere near combat. One, the soldier whose eyes kept blinking nervously, didn´t look old enough to shave. Outside the gate, though, things were different. There were a half-dozen soldiers in unmarked green uniforms, all wearing helmets and body armor, and all carrying automatic weapons. Every 50

WASHINGTON — President Obama has warned Russia that “there will be costs” for a military intervention in Ukraine. But the United States has few palatable options for imposing such costs, and recent history has shown that when it considers its interests at stake, Russia has been willing to pay the price. Even before President Vladimir V. Putin on Saturday publicly declared his intent to send Russian troops into the Ukrainian territory of Crimea, Mr. Obama and his team were already discussing how to respond. They talked about canceling the president’s trip to a summit meeting in Russia in June, shelving

Senior Airman Ret. Brian Kolfage vented his feelings to President Obama in a strongly worded letter that doesn’t mince words: Dear President Obama, My name is Brian Kolfage, I’m a triple amputee and retired Air Force veteran who was severely wounded on September 11, 2004 in Iraq. I nearly died in a war that most of your colleagues supported overwhelmingly, including the two presidents who came before you. Many citizens may not agree with waging war in Iraq to free the oppressed Iraqi citizens, but it’s something that warriors like myself have no control over. I joined to serve my country and to

As John noted below, President Obama spent an hour and a half on the telephone with Vladimir Putin discussing the Russian invasion of Ukraine. What was the conversation like? We can probably get a good sense of it by considering the account of President Bush’s conversations with Putin set forth by Peter Baker in his excellent book about the Bush presidency, Days of Fire. It’s well known that Bush and Putin got on well at first. But when the relationship soured, Bush became exasperated by his talks with the Russian bully. Putin seemed to delight in debating Bush. But according

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West. "Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing," Obama declared Friday

President Barack Obama fired a few verbs across the front armor of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s tanks, in a rushed statement just after 5 p.m. on Friday. The statement was made as Russian forces — including attack helicopters — appeared in peripheral parts of the Ukraine that are largely populated by ethnic Russians. There’s no evidence that Obama wants to get involved in what may become a war between the Ukraine and Russia. He did not threaten any significant retaliation if Russian force attack nor did he offer military aid to the Ukraine. He announced that Vice President Joe Biden — but not

President Obama´s proclaimed strategy to "bypass Congress" — most conspicuously his broad rewriting of the Affordable Care Act — has given unusual prominence to a fairly arcane legal doctrine: standing. Standing is what is preventing a potential blizzard of litigation against the president´s unilateral decrees, and ironically, it´s a doctrine liberal jurists have long decried. To challenge the government in federal court, it isn´t enough to simply believe that the government´s conduct is illegal or even unconstitutional. Federal courts can hear only specific disputes about the law as applied to particular people. To be heard in court, a person must have

Secretary of State John F. Kerry went on the Sunday shows to talk about Ukraine, and he called the Russian troop intervention in Crimea "an incredible act of aggression." “He´s going to lose on the international stage," Kerry told David Gregory on NBC´s "Meet the Press."

SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine — Heightened Russian military activity in Crimea on Friday prompted a stern warning from President Obama and a deepening sense of crisis among the leaders of the new Ukrainian government in Kiev. U.S. officials said Russian troops had entered Crimea, and Obama told reporters Friday evening that he was “deeply concerned by reports of military movements” and that there “will be costs for any military intervention.” Earlier in the day, the new Ukrainian government said that hundreds of soldiers in green camouflage, without insignia but carrying military-style automatic rifles, had taken over two airports in Crimea.
