Obama’s third war
New York Post, by Ralph Peters

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/27/2013 5:29:09 AM

You might as well try to teach a snake to juggle as hope the Obama administration will think strategically. The “peace president” is about to embark on his third military adventure, this time in Syria, without having learned the lessons of his botched efforts in Afghanistan and Libya. He hasn’t even learned from the Bush administration’s mistakes — which he mocked with such delight. Before launching a single cruise missile toward Syria, Team Obama needs to be sure it has a good answer to the question, “What comes next?” If Obama does a Clinton and churns up some sand with do-nothing cruise-missile

The chemical attacks were intended by someone to draw the United States (and possibly the UN/NATO forces) into combat against Assad.

Why on Earth would we let them manipulate us thus? Under no circumstance should we engage in this civil war. There ain´t no good guys.

However, Obama only acts for political benefit. Can you cite a single act by this President that wasn´t motivated solely for political gain? A single speech, a single act? I cannot.

Col. Peters is right on the mark. I loved his remark about McCain and Ms Lindsey. Also last two sentences are true for the present, and for future battles most likely.

FTA: "And the one thing every member of that bomb-Syria-now coalition has in common? Not one will have to fight"

Maybe I am becoming a dove in my golden years, but that sentence really spoke to me. I just have no confidence in our government to do the right thing anymore. We are embroiled in these never ending wars to what end? The Muslims are as committed as ever and until we decide to defeat them, (WWII defeat them), it´s wack-a-mole on steroids.

Muslims killing Muslims - I say we get out of the way and let them have at it. The world would be a safer place. Not one drop of American blood should be shed for the 7th century barbarians.

With expenditure cut backs in the military we just can´t afford to go to war. VA workers are getting bonuses while wounded veterans sit in waiting rooms for months or maybe years just to visit a doctor about a lost limb. We really need this at this time.
Hell they might even get to use up the rest of the C-rations left over from the Korean War because ammo and food are scarce.
Muslims killing muslims is good that´s less that will attack Israel in the end.

"And we have elements in the defense industry who long for a return to our free-spending years in Iraq and Afghanistan and view a war in Syria as a great way to beat the sequester."
As I´ve said here many times, beware the military industrial complex. Iraq and Afghanistan were noble endeavors but they weren´t fought with overwhelming force so we could get in and out. They were protracted for years and years. Why?

This is so complicated, but Im starting to get a clearer picture, thanks to people like Peters. We made mistakes in the previous intervention, and doing nothing does not mean weakness for our military prowness. Let´s not get sucked into this and choose sides when we don´t have a clear choice of the good guys. There aren´t any!

After the Muslim Brotherhood tipped their bloody, islamofascist hand in Egypt and were removed from power, their support all over the middle east began to evaporate. For the Brotherhood, taking Syria changed overnight from “strategic” to “existential.” Syria is now a “must have” for the Brotherhood. So, of course, time to let the Tomahawks fly.

Now that we all know how extensively we were lied to about Benghazi, why are we so willing to accept the Syria set-up at face value? With the Obama administration’s shockingly cozy relationship with the Brotherhood and by extension their direct action wing, al Qaeda, I don’t believe anything any of them say. Oh, and by the way, with Huma gone, who is now the Brotherhood’s insider at State?

Reading this article made me think. The US and not fought a war since WWII with the end result is to secure complete victory over the enemy. Korea? It´s still a state of war. Vietnam? Not there either. Iraq? Nope. Afghanistan? Still there. Libya? Who knows. Now does Obozo think that he can rush in and settle a civil war that has both sides that hate America and all will be peace and love?

Do you trust a word out of Obama´s mouth?? NO. No one in this country that reads cursive does...

Obama purposely destabilised the Middle East. He purposely turned Egypt over to Morsi and the murderous Muslim Brotherhood. Christraians were crucified and murdered by wanton Muslims in Egypt..they still are.

Obama purposely turned Libya and Quaddaffi,s weapons stash over to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Benghazi is where WMB and stinger missiles were being transferred into the hands of AlQuaeda, of the Muslim Brotherhood..purposely.

AlQaeda in Syria is exactly who the rebels are. Assad is not murdering the Christians in Syria...AlQaeda and the IslamoFacists of the Muslim Brotherhood ARE..

The rebel forces, AlQaeda, in Syria were firing upon the UN inspectors...They do not want them to understand it was not Assad but rather AlQaeda...using chemical weapons...they want the USA to enter WWIII on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood.

No more American blood and trader shed on behalf of Obama´s Muslim Brotherhood. NONE. Hear that Huma..

Obama is a Sunni Marxist...if we are to gage his affections and weapons transfers. Marxists want to destroy the USA and her military. Stop this madness....only a mad, insane people would follow Obama into battle...much less a bathroom.
He is a two bit shill for America´s enemies. Will you offer Americas blood up on his behalf. Not only NO...but HELL NO.

Stand up America...Speak out....WE THE PEOPLE is in capital letters for a reason...Be heard...Write and call the traitor clas...Tell them to stand down..and slow down. NOW.

The Islamists are in a perpetual battle with someone - it´s what hey do. Currently, it´s the Sunni´s and Shiite´s at one another´s throats, rather than at our throats. That´s a humanitarian mess, as war always is, but if it´s going to be war, let it be someone else´s, not ours. If that´s callous, so be it.

The biggest laugh I´ve had this week is when I read that France was going to punish Syria for the gas attack.

´Pierre who will help us against the dirty Syrians. I hear they have gassed somebody´. ´Yes Baptiste, you are right.. Obama said he was going give them a good wacking, from the hidden White House, underneath the 6th green in Augusta´

´He is going to club them to death with a nine iron´

´No he is waiting there to see how the Russians and Chinese react to his big bluff. He has sent two drones, two tug boats, a WW2 submarine and two cops from Chicago´

´What have the Russians and Chinese sent to oppose that mighty force´

Sixty divisions, Eight aircraft carriers, ´Six nuke submarines, Five hundred jets and Pig firing canons´

´You know Pierre, I just remembered I have to go to a soccer game for the next couple of days´

´Me too Batiste, I also have to do the laundry. They don´t really know who gassed who do they´

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the departure

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision.

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010.

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it.

Timing is everything in politics and the latest Fox News poll suggests the timing of the 2014 midterm election could not be worse for President Obama and his fellow Democrats. With public approval of Congress in the single digits, senators and representatives in both parties may face the most challenging political environment of their careers. But the Fox survey makes clear that things aren´t breaking well for Obama, either, and his popularity rating may be the most important factor in determining how Democrats fare in November. Presidents have been unpopular before. Harry Truman´s approval rating sank to 23 percent at

Hillary Clinton and her friends in the media have been testing messages for her expected presidential campaign. The case for her will be built on four pillars: that allegations of her corruption are unfair; that she is highly accomplished; that she is above partisanship; and that she is a woman. The first three are dubious and the fourth will matter less than you may think. Do you remember Webb Hubbell, the McDougals, the missing Rose Law firm billing records, Travelgate, or Hillary’s surprise acumen at high-risk commodities trading? Super PACs and other groups will remind voters of all of these case

WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked.

Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran.

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'

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons.
