[W]e quietly softened sanctions five months ago, with Tehran not relenting on a single thing. There’s Obama’s “tough diplomacy” in action. – IBD
The U.S. now supports Al-Qeada fighters in Syria, Muslim Brotherhood radicals in Egypt and abandons our closest ME ally. Obama has truly “fundamentally transformed” America from the protector of freedom, democracy and decency to a Chicago style thugocracy.
Frank Gaffney discusses Russian proposal for Syria’s chemical weapons, and the implications it has for U.S. relationships with other rogue states.
It could also partially explain the administration’s eagerness to falsely blame the attack on a YouTube video that Muslims found offensive, rather than acknowledge poor security conditions and a growing al-Qaeda movement in the region. After all, the President believes that core al Qaeda is on the run.
They’ve already understood this president has no stomach for enforcing a red line against them. They already know. They’re good to go.
Both Obama and Biden have vehemently stated that the president does not have the authority to take military action in a case like Syria. Biden even said it was an impeachable offense. Now that Obama has numerous scandals exposing his tyranny, what’s one more flagrant violation of the constitution when there is no accountability?
In 2007 then-Senator Obama loudly declared that “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”
A century ago in 1913, neither Europeans, nor Americans could have imagined that World War I would begin the following year. The situation in Syria reeks of the same uncertainties and outcome.
So the Nobel peace prize winner wants to start another war with possible global implications? The U.S. is broke. How does this get paid for? Or is Obama just trying to get gas to $7 a gallon like Europe as his energy secretary Chu said we needed? Or is this a way to get all the Obama scandals off the front pages and out of the short memory of the American people?
