Up to this point, I don’t believe our president has been particularly disappointed with the direction of the Arab Spring and the Middle East struggle. With the pretense of liberating Middle Eastern countries, we have given Al-Qaeda weapon stockpiles beyond belief, and in the process, have assisted them and the Muslim Brotherhood in acquiring Lebanon, Libya, Tunisia, and until only recently, Egypt (when the Egyptians suddenly woke up and took back their country). But this feisty Assad in Syria has been holding his own against al Qaeda and various other factions – he hasn’t given up or rolled over. This was not at all part of the plan, and something had to be done about it. Mind you, I’m not missing the point that Assad is a conscienceless dictator. It’s just that he’s not considered a radical, world-conquering Muslim, and let’s face it, this administration has shown us time and again that it has a soft spot for Islamics who want to take over the world.
In the last five years our president has spent more time visiting, begging, bowing to, and acquiescing to Muslims than any other official in the history of the free world. He has virtually altered history in his speeches, creating erroneous details about the glorious events of Islam and its contributions to America and the Western World. He has gone out of his way to place pro-Muslim politicians in high places. (Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense, renowned for his disdain for Israel, CIA director John Brennan, Islam’s most ardent supporter in American government next to our president, and Israel-bashing John Kerry as Secretary of State). Obama has imbedded so many genuine Muslim zealots in positions of influence and power in our government that even his most strident supporters are beginning to question his intentions. In addition, he and his minions, such as Attorney General Eric Holder, have done everything possible to mitigate penalties, delay or relocate trials, and intervene on sentencing for Islamic terrorists who have attacked America.
Nonetheless, with all our president’s efforts, and the efforts of the Muslim Brotherhood and their radical Islamic friends, Assad has held his country. If fact, it looked as if the war was turning in his favor.
Then, all of a sudden, it appears Assad decides to use chemical weapons on women and children (with no primary objective or critical junction in combat, or defense of anything strategic) and now, everyone wants his head. How convenient.
But all logical, clear-thinking persons out there have to ask themselves: Why would Assad do this? How does this possibly benefit him? Why would he use his ace in the hole on a skirmish that represented no direct threat against him? Why would he risk the hatred of the free world on an inconsequential incident?
Many clear-thinking people out there are reminded of a ploy called a “false flag operation” wherein a group of people or the leaders of a nation create a situation that provides enough justification or provocation to warrant major military action against a given target (or nation), creating an overthrow of that government. False flag operations have been used to alter history dozens of times.
So now Obama is thumping his chest and saying we need to teach Syria a lesson – saying he has unequivocal poof that Assad was behind this travesty. My first thought would be, “Okay, show me the proof – show us all the proof, before you embroil us in another major conflict – a conflict with a country that has one of the largest stockpiles of chemical weapons in the world. Make damned sure all of us see this unequivocal proof before you risk turning New York or Los Angeles into a biological wasteland.
To top it off, if he were half the commander in chief he claims, he wouldn’t be going around fluffing his feathers and telling everyone (especially Syria) what he was going to do. Assad is braced for it now, and lining up human shields in strategic areas.
Our president’s ideology, ego, and Muslim upbringings are finally rising to the surface and overwhelming his common sense. His hatred for Israel plays into this as well, and he sees that this could very well become a “two for one” – an attack on Syria by the U.S. may well provide Iran and surrounding allies with the excuse they’re looking for to launch a battery of deadly attacks on Israel. When Israel responds with whatever it takes to survive, the global community (fueled and influenced by Mid-Eastern oil) will find yet another reason to condemn Jews everywhere. It’s a win-win for him, regardless of what happens here and abroad.
There are those who would argue my opinions regarding Obama and his Muslim leanings. To them I would say: If it walks like a duck, and talks like a duck…
