Obama’s Shot Across Syria’s Bow, Limited Military Operation … But What is the Point of Military Action … Does He Realize he is Siding with Al-Qaeda and Now Great Britain, France, German and Arab League Say Not So Fast
President Barack Obama calls for a shot across the bow and a limited military operation in a strike again Syria for their use of chemical weapons. Obama has called for a “Decisive but limited” military action. WHAT? Does this chicken hawk have any idea what he is talking about? So he wants to strike Syria, but does not want regime change. Does Obama realize that helping the rebels actually means that the United States is aiding Al-Qaeda? Yes, the very folks that killed nearly 3000 individuals on 9-11 in NYC, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania. President says Syria’s use of chemical weapons affects US interests. How, exactly? One might say that an attack on Syria by the US, especially standing alone, would have a greater consequence on US interests.
Obama claimed he had support from foreign countries in the strike against Syria, not so fast. Great Britain calls for restraint and a political solution through the UN. And upon further evaluation, France changes its tone and seeks a political solution the ultimate goal for Syria. Germany not on board either.
Barack Obama, the community agitator has backed himself into a corner. This is why you do not draw a line in the sand that you are not willing to back up. Don’t play a game of chicken with people who do not care and do not respect you. Speaking of playing a game of chicken, Russia sending warships to the Mediterranean.
President Barack Obama promised Wednesday that any U.S. military strike at Syria would be a “shot across the bow” that avoids seeing America pulled into “any kind of open-ended conflict.”
Speaking in a wide-ranging interview with PBS Newshour, Obama insisted he has not made a decision on how best to respond to the alleged massacre of civilians by forces loyal to Syrian strongman Bashar Assad using chemical weapons.
But “if, in fact, we can take limited, tailored approaches, not getting drawn into a long conflict — not a repetition of, you know, Iraq, which I know a lot of people are worried about — but if we are saying in a clear and decisive but very limited way, we send a shot across the bow saying, stop doing this, that can have a positive impact on our national security over the long term,” the president said.
That would send the Assad regime “a pretty strong signal, that in fact, it better not do it again.”
Obama, making his first public remarks on the crisis since a CNN interview that aired Friday, rejected claims that rebels fighting to topple Assad were behind the Aug. 21 attack.
“We have concluded that the Syrian government in fact carried these out. And if that’s so, then there need to be international consequences,” he said.
“I have no interest in any kind of open-ended conflict in Syria, but we do have to make sure that when countries break international norms on weapons like chemical weapons that could threaten us, that they are held accountable,” he said.
The US and UK on Thursday appeared to have backed down from an immediate punitive military strike against Syria, even as embattled President Bashar al-Assad vowed that his country would emerge “victorious” in any confrontation with America and its allies.
A strike by western forces had appeared imminent but US allies were increasingly reluctant to act before hearing the results of a UN probe into the alleged poisonous gas attacks in the war-torn country on August 21.
President Barack Obama has said he had not yet decided whether to attack Syria in response to alleged use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime, but a strike still appeared likely as the US stopped seeking a UN mandate.
This is why the United States was out of their collective minds for reelecting a community agitator, a Campaigner in Chief, a misleader as President.
