’We’re not talking about war’:
Kerry outlines ’unbelievably
small’ strike on Syria

Globe and Mail [Canada], by Paul Waldie

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 9/9/2013 8:42:54 AM

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the United States is considering only an “unbelievably, small, limited” strike on Syria as punishment for allegedly using chemical weapons and he insisted military action will not end that country’s civil war. “We’re not going to war,” Mr. Kerry told reporters Monday after meeting with British Foreign Secretary William Hague in London. “We will be able to hold [Syrian President] Bashar al-Assad accountable without engaging troops on the ground or any other prolonged kind of effort, in a very limited, very targeted, very short-term effort that degrades his capacity to deliver chemical weapons

Comments:
Famous last words: We´re not talking about war. Only punishment. The administration believes it is judge, jury and executioner.

If it´s going to so limited, targeted, unbelievably small, why not just tell Assad he´s been bombed. Tell us he was bombed. And everyone can move on.

If the plznned zttack is so ´unbelievably small´, then why are you going to do it?

They conveniently forget that Assad, Iran and Russia are going to have a say in how big this gets and how long it lasts. Do they really think there will be no response? They are this stupid, but surely someone up there is telling them the truth, no?

The problem with this is the same problem the libs have with the whole islamic war thing - you do not get to decide how the other side responds. "We´re not angry with islam, so they´re not angry with us" is sort of how it goes. They define all actions, and seem utterly boggled when someone doesn´t fall in line with the script.

Even if our attack is so small all we do is knock over a light pole, how Syria (and her sponsor, Iran, and her backers, Russia and China) respond is out of our hands.
Obama´s crew doesn´t seem to get that.

Are we going to use firecrackers instead of bombs? What a moron. We´re talking thugs and bullies. If you slap them on the wrist they´ll punch you in the mouth and kick you where it hurts. If Hezbollah blows something up in this country as retaliation do we escalate or sulk in the corner.

Modern "Liberalism" is only possible for those who accept the notion that words do not have fixed meanings but mean whatever one wishes them to mean at the moment. Like the Constitution, the language itself is just a starting place, a few suggestions, a launching point from which to toss one´s explosive narcissism into the night sky.

The smallest act of war is still an act of war, be it a division or a squad, be it a month long bombing campaign or a single cruise missile.

The adversary will respond as they see fit, not as you see fit.

Anyone else think that Assad already has pictures of all the dead women and children that will be killed by our missle strikes?

You know, blown up orphanages and hospitals that we "intentionally bombed to kill innocnet muslim women and children".

It doesn´t matter what our missles actually strike, the pictures mentioned above are what the muslim world will see. Truth means nothing to muslims.

The more the Administration speaks out, the more ignorant they sound. What in G_d´s name is an ´unbelievably small strike´ . Are they sending a very small box of firecrackers via the USPS, with insurance, of course. If ONE rocket kills ONE civilian, THAT person is still dead, and that person deserves better.

We are told that the world hates us so why are the Democrat leaders afraid we will be further hated, that our reputation will be affected.


The lack of wisdom by this president is overwhelming.

IF the concern and motivation is about the chemical weapons, bombing can´t change that.
We certainly cannot bomb areas where chemical weapons are present or we kill many people when the gas is released. IF the purpose is to keep these weapons out of the hands of the bad guys (whoever they are), it would require "boots on the ground".

This will be the second shot heard around the world. We can´t afford it. Period. It will eventually cost us millions and American lives. Someone tell Hillary that this is why Benghazi still matters. This is not a movie where the actors get paid millions to act dead. This is reality. Someone needs to start impeachment now. PS: Has anyone noticed how wrinkles are appearing in Kerry´s Botoxed face? He is beginning to look more and more like Bruce Jenner who looks like a freak.

Something isn´t what it appears in all this Obamahawk talk. Are Obama and his lackeys talking about war simply to erase the 1 year anniversary of the Benghazi disaster? The Benghazi coverup is still on going, with not a single CIA operative publically testifying on what he was doing in the annex that night. Once we are past 9/11, Syria will surely disappear into the same blackout as Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Iraq and Iran.

Perhaps the tiny strike that Kerry wants will be on Mohammed´s Smoke Shoppe at the corners of Assad Avenue and Assad Street in Damascus. "He was selling cigarettes to children, and we put an end to that."

Most sane people understand that attacking a country militarily is an act of war. This candidate for most-idiotic-statement of the week is just a repeat of 9/12, when brainless Lefties including Kerry angrily insisted that the military attacks on NYC and DC should be handled by police, rather than the armed forces.

I´d love to see Kerry try this philosophy at a raucous bar by slamming the big, beligerent drunk in the head with a board a few times, and when the drunk comes at him with fists clenched, whines, "I wasn´t picking a fight!"

Kerry is more than just an idiot, he´s a gravely dangerous idiot.

Heck, from the attackers viewpoint 9/11 was an unbelievably small event. “Only” 3000 or so dead. Out of millions of Americans. And look at all that’s happened since using 9/11 as justification. And some of us believe that hasn’t been enough.

An act of war is just that. The liberals think they can slap you in the face with no response…because you should know “you deserve it.”

Something akin to being small and limited is what the Obama crew told the UN to get a UN resolution on Libya. But after the resolution was passed, it did not turn out that way. Know it is clear that the Obama crew mislead the UN as to their intentions regarding Libya. Russia knows that, and notice that this time the Obama crew is staying as far away from the UN as they possibly can.

The people at Mozilla may yet live to regret their decision in cooperating with the forcing out of Brendan Eich. Apparently the internet giant has been getting a lot of negative reaction to its jettisoning of Eich for his contribution in support of California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008. Whether or not this will actually end up hurting Mozilla, one wonders whether Mozilla even anticipated the possibility.

In Silicon Valley, where personal quirks and even antisocial personalities are tolerated as long as you are building new products and making money, a socially conservative viewpoint may be one trait you have to keep to yourself. On Thursday, Brendan Eich, who has helped develop some of the web’s most important technologies, resigned under pressure as chief executive of Mozilla, the maker of the popular Firefox web browser, just two weeks after taking the job. (snip) While he was being portrayed as an opponent of gay people, Mr. Eich said he believed in inclusiveness within Mozilla and had never discriminated.

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

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

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'

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

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

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
