Obama is Losing in Syria

 

 

When an Obama cheerleader like former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates says something like this… you know that things must be bad.

“If ‘winning’ means remaining as president of Syria, I think [Assad] is winning… I think last fall was a real low point where we went in the space of a week from saying ‘Assad must go’ to ‘Assad must stay’ in order to fulfill the agreement sponsored by Putin to get rid of the chemical weapons that Assad had used against his own people…”

Can we all just face facts, please? The Obama administration’s foreign policy has been a train wreck since the very beginning. We focus on his domestic failures (which are monumental to be sure), but Obama’s foreign policy has been at Obamacare destructive levels since day one.

At some point in the near future we are going to have come to grips with the fact that the worst President in American history was elected to a second term. Partly because of Democrat intransigence, but also partly because of Republican incompetence.

Syria is simply more evidence of what we already know – Barack Obama has been an unmitigated disaster as the President of the United States.

    Exactly what is such a disaster about dismantling Syria’s chemical weapons without firing a shot?! What? You wanted boots on the ground? Storm the nation and remove Assad? Brilliant. (Sarcasm). Just what we need…another war in the Middle East. You’re right about one thing…the worst president in history was elected to a second term..GW Bush.

    • Blessings

      You praise hillary and she voted to invaid Iraq, where’s her accountability… You give her a free pass, howerer, hold Bush accountable for the whole thing…As Bush used due process in the invasion, she raised her hand, many Democrats did…Infact, many pushed Bush hard into going, including hillary..I hold them ALL accountable! I don’t make excuses, or forget why my nephew came home in a coffin…

      As we move forward to Libya, snubbing it’s nose at the world, slaughtering thousands of people, obama uses his typical failed negotiation abilities/polices in this situation. He just throws money and arms into the hands of our enemy’s offering them what they need to shed blood.. So, when you do your absurd death tally, obama -vs- Bush, think about the globe as a whole, not just Iraq and Afghanistan…

      So, now it’s obamas opportunity to show us what’s he’s got.. How’s he doing? Do you hold him accountable for anything?

      • KingofBeers

        For the umpteenth time, Bush did not share all the intel concerning Iraq, so Hillary and congress did not vote for war based on the best intel. Bush hid intel stating Iraq no longer had an active WMD program.

        You’re quick to criticize, so what would you do concerning Libya and Syria? Put boots on the ground? Start another Iraq type war?

        • seeymour kleerly

          McCain would do that! Thank God we elected Obama!

          • gerrod

            Those who elected NObama were first and foremost either atheists or agnostics–God had nothing to do with it except to allow it as part of his plan to bring judgement on a nation that has turned its back on Him. As the Apostle John wrote in his letter, there will be anti-Christs in this world for the spirit of anti-Christs already exists–NObama represents that spirit.

          • KingofBeers

            Nonsense..The anti-Christ is supposed to be well loved. Do you honestly believe that applies to the love republicans have for a successful president, who try as they might, cannot make up a scandal to bring down our president?

            Notice how gerrod said” Christ(s)… Not the ONE, you are speaking of.. Maybe slow down and be not so quick to reply without reading the post..

            I’m asking this because I might learn something, so correct me if I’m wrong.

            In Revelations it talks of two beasts, the anti-Christ and the false prophet. Are you saying there is more than one anti-Christ? Thanks.

          • Blessings

            The Apostle John is the only one who spoke about the anti Christ in the new Testament. The one anti Christ, meaning one man. However, John did warn us that in the time, he called it” last time”, the anti Christ will come, even now there are many anti Christs.. John also said… These “antichrists ” are thoes people who do a work of deception. But the Antichrist is a person who is possessed by the Devil.

            Hope that helps..

            A first lesson for anyone wanting to understand the Bible is that the book of Revelation is not called Revelations. It’s title is Revelation. It’s prophecies may not be in reference to now at all since the purpose of the Revelation was to encourage Christians then living and being oppressed by someone like Obama only more so. We do not do well to try to assign any living person to any person described in the book of Revelation. Our guesses are not helpful.

          • KingofBeers

            Appreciate the correction. Exactly how is President Obama oppressing you?

          • http://missionoutreach.org Ray_Downen

            Obama is successful only in bringing discredit upon the nation. His scandals have failed to bring him down only because the Democrat Party has controlled the Senate which would otherwise have impeached him four years ago.

          • KingofBeers

            Impeached him for what?! Is this standard operating procedure for republicans now? Lose the White House so make up scandals and try to impeach? You guys have nothing but your own selfish lust for power. Discredit upon the nation? Laughable, except in right wing bizarro world.

            Why do you bring McCain into the mix? It was Romney opposing Obama prior to the Syria situation. And who can say what John McCain would have done. He didn’t have the chance to do anything except vote against Obama repeatedly as all patriots have done.

          • KingofBeers

            Obama is not a Muslim, and even if he was, so what? I suspect you’ve been Hannitized, just another word for brain washed? “Nation into ruin?!” Gimmeabreak. Best job creation since 1999, record stock market, consumer confidence continuing to rise, out of Iraq, out of Afghanistan by end of year, lowest tax rate since the 1950’s, stem cell research reinstated, abortion levels down 13% from Bush administration, 50 straight months of private sector job growth, lowered the deficit by 1/3, and every democratic president has lowered the deficit since Einsenhower, while no republican president has, housing market improving…I could go on and on. Worst republican obstruction and record breaking number of fillibusters in our nations history, a party who places their own obscene lust for power above the needs of our nation, a party wishing to give another 310 million in tax breaks for the rich while cutting programs for the most vulnerable of society. Wrap your Bible around that!

          I’m not the one you should be asking, however, my opinion is NO BOOTS! You need to ask me that after knowing what my family has gone through..

          AGAIN,lets see what Obamas got! Also you never answered my question.. Do you hold Obama accountable for anything?

          • KingofBeers

            I was against Obama wanting to wage military strikes against Syria. I was against putting boots on the ground in Libya. Luckily, Obama did neither. I’m against his new trade deal. I hold him accountable for the regrettable line about keeping your insurance…he should have clarified, if your insurance meets standards. I hold Obama accountable for not striking back more firmly against the most obstructionist, do nothing congress in history.

          • http://missionoutreach.org Ray_Downen

            Obama lies about everything. He knew he was establishing new standards for insurance to cover unnecessary things so that the insurers couldn’t continue to offer the same sensible policies held by most people at that time. Obama lied when he repeatedly assured those who had doctors they liked and policies they liked could keep them under Obamacare. Not a word of truth in his assurances. And King supposes Obama should just have said the policies could be kept IF. But that is not in any way what Obama said. Obama always lies, even about unimportant things. If he says, “Good morning,” you can be sure it’s cloudy and threatening outside.

            In this nation, the President is charged with administering laws made by the Congress. The president is a servant. The Congress is his boss. The Congress makes the laws. The President enforces and defends laws made by the Congress.

            King imagines the President is the boss and the Congress must pass laws written by the President’s people. King doesn’t understand the system of government in this republic.

          • KingofBeers

            I’ll give you the statement about keeping your insurance, but these were sub standard policies. Policies that had a life time cap, or charged women more than men, or policies forcing one into bankruptcy, or dropping you by using the term “pre conditions.” If the term Obamacare is left out, the approval rating for the ACA is sky rocketing. In case you’ve been out of the loop, Obamacare is the law of the land. You speak of lies, but probably shrug your shoulders at the continuos lies of the right, and the lies by previous republican administrations.

        • http://missionoutreach.org Ray_Downen

          It’s amazing what King knows that no one else knew until now. He imagines that Bush was no better a man than Obama who lies all the time. But most of us know that Bush told the truth even when it didn’t fit what he wanted. Bush NEVER lied. Obama never tells the truth. Total opposites. Good for President George W. Bush! He served the nation well.

          • KingofBeers

            Ok, now I know you’re too wrapped up in your own hatred and bias to have an inkling of the truth. GW will go down as one of our worst presidents ever. Put two wars, and his giveaway to pharmaceuticals, all on the nations credit card, completely sending our economy into recession. A man who has the blood of almost 5,000 soldiers on his hands, along with 100’s of thousands of innocent civilians. Who lied about Iraq’s connection to Al Qeada, who lied about wmd’s, who outed one of our CIA agents in an act of political revenge, who botched Katrina, who took more vacation days than any president in history…a complete disaster for our nation, who ignored our constitution by wire tapping without a court order. Obama is a far better president than the snot nosed kid can ever dream of being.

      • seeymour kleerly

        Do you give Obama CREDIT for “anything”!

        • http://yahoo.com/ DustyFae

          Yes, l give Obama credit for being a nut case and want-a-be Dictator… Do you really believe George Soros and all the rich elites, China and Russia will let a Muslim or Black man become a Ruler of the NWO…??? George Soros will be using Blacks and Muslims to wipe people out that oppose them, but after they are done using the Blacks and Muslims, they will be slaves to the NWO…. Remember George Soros even turn his back on his own Jewish people and turn them over to Hitler…

          Hitler even killed educated, Doctors, Scientists and Lawyers, even his own army was killed and changed constantly cause Hitler came to not trust no one.. Look at Obama, he can not even trust Our Military and has his own private Army, who he will be killing sooner or later…

          Honestly, do you really believe all these Bankers and other people are committing suicide ? Listen to the threats he made to all the Governors…

          • mcbee555

            Let’s not forget that Obama has had 100% support from Democrat elected politicians, he couldn’t undermine as much as has been done all by himself, though the precaution of augmenting his Democrat backers with Appointees called “Czars” has been effective for their Socialist program to nullify the U.S. Constitution incrementally. I cannot attribute such a coup solely to him, he’s not that forward seeing, he has to be a front for a committee of Stalinist-types who guide his moves.
            It seems like a model of the Communist Party that ran the Kremlin.

          • http://missionoutreach.org Ray_Downen

            Good for McBee. But Obama planned for this for some years, with backing from wealthy haters of the U.S.A. He was ready from day one to begin “changing” the nation. He’s almost succeeded in destroying us. Is there hope yet?

          • mcbee555

            Yep, he headed for Socialist kind of changes like he was a guided missile. That had to be his mission, because he’s a dead-duck as regards statesmanship. Most of his operation has been concentrated upon ruining the United States.

Many lives will be lost as when Hitler and All the other Dictator have done and are doing in other Nations now.. Do we really want to live like slaves ??

          • mcbee555

            Nixon lied to cover-up his Watergate embarrassment, Clinton lied to cover-up his excesses with a female employee. Neither of them broke America’s treasury, ruined America’s foreign policy, collapsed the exceptional American heath delivery system.
            Neither of them so blatantly lied about practically every presidential move made. Neither of them sought to nullify the U.S. Constitution in favor of the worse kind of Socialism, practically on par with Stalinism.
            Neither Nixon nor Clinton can be compared with the undermining of the republic such as Obama has done.

      • KingofBeers

        Bush lied about Iraqs WMD, his administration outed one of our own CIA agents in an act of political revenge because they didn’t like Joe Wilson telling the truth about no WMD.

        • mcbee555

          You must mean that Saddam’s poison gas bombings of the southern Iraq Shiites and the northern Iraq Kurds were all a figment of the imagination, that those people just laid themselves down in their village streets with their babies, their animals among them, all dead in contorted positions, and all from rogue CIA guys flying Russian-built attack helicopters with Iraqi markings, and all because CIA people “didn’t like Joe Wilson.” Now, that is really one helluva conspiracy! FYI poison gas is a WMD, Joe Wilson or no Joe Wilson. The very WMD’s (unused) ended up in the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon,throughout the week leading to the first American troops entering Baghdad, and those WMD’s are today in the hands of Syria’s dictator Assad who like Saddam Hussein was/is a Baathist Party Arab dictator.

          • http://missionoutreach.org Ray_Downen

            McBee speaks well and correctly except that the poison gas has now been (supposedly) destroyed. It seems more likely it’s now been moved to Russia “for safekeeping.” But King is wrong as can be about President Bush doing anything to hurt this nation. He acted in every way for our good and never for our evil. Just the opposite of Obama.

          • mcbee555

            If the Russians have taken charge of the poison gas, Ray, I was thinking it may not have gone as far as Russia. It could be stashed at the Russian naval base at Tartous, Syria, or where Russia has had its gas proving ground in Kazakhstan. where it still has plenty of sway even though Kazakhstan was a republic in the USSR, but not now a member of the Russian Federation. Putin still has influence in those places.

          • http://missionoutreach.org Ray_Downen

            Yes, good thinking. Moving it is dangerous, so closer would be better!

          • mcbee555

            Just a possibility, the one actual fact is Putin enjoys the trust of those governments he’s befriended. Because Obama almost ruined Egypt with his recommendations of the Morsi-Muslim Brotherhood thing, Putin just made a deal to furnish brand new Russian heavy ordinance to Egypt.
            Maybe he’ll send a “Thank You” card to Obama!

The one good thing about his presidency is America will NEVER put another Bush in the White House!

          • KingofBeers

            I’m not defending Saddam. I’m sure he did gas the Kurds, but you’re talking about 30 years ago. Iran also gassed the Kurds, why I don’t know, but it was a different gas than Saddam was ever in possession of….this is established fact! There is no, zero, zilch, evidence of Saddam moving WMD before the invasion. Right wing myth, long since discredited. Syria has it’s own chemical weapons program! Why would Saddam give his WMD to his arch enemy?!

          • mcbee555

            You specify wholesale murder by poison gas “about 30 years ago” as if the statute of limitations of murdering entire villages, via poison gas, is insignificant by the time we caught up with Saddam. Yet, Saddam was tried and hung. Did you even begin to know the charges? Do you know the statute of limitations of genocidal murder, or are you so used to the idea that it, genocidal murder, no longer matters? The elder Assad and Saddam weren’t arch enemies, Saddam and Iran were arch-enemies. Assad and Saddam were both dictators in the Baathist Party ideology. That seems not to have struck a chord with you and your conspiracy theory.
            It would have mattered to the Russians quartered in Baghdad at the time, who were assisting in developing poison gas weapons, that the stuff not be discovered by U.S. troops. Russia would have been embarrassed because it insisted that it was not a party to Saddam’s WMD’s development, it only maintained one helluva very large embassy in Baghdad! The stuff was moved to Syria, with Russian help and insistence. You state it’s a “rightist myth” because it was never read by you via the news media you frequent in order to be “well-informed.”
            The “right-wing myth” is as extant to you as the “science of global warming.” It is probably futile to explain to you how Arab dictators function, but I’ll give you a clue….an old Arab axiom is “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” The Mid-East is an interesting subject and today, a necessary subject. Don’t be hog-tied by the erroneous information you probably think is truth. A well-written book or two could cure that if you care to spend some time in getting to know.
            You know nothing of Arab dictators, nor the Baathist ideology which was shared by Saddam and the elder Assad alike. An “established fact” for you is what you choose to believe.
            That establishes nothing.

          • KingofBeers

            Where in the world do you get this stuff? There were inspectors, on the ground in Iraq just before the invasion, who said “there’s nothing here.” Bush pulled them out. You have zero evidence or anything resembling facts to support a thing you say. Would you agree Iraq and Iran were enemies? Well, Syria and Iran were best friends. You can’t even provide the simple proof that Iraq and Syria were on good terms. I’ve read 5 books on the Iraq war, and unlike you, they weren’t written by some pathological liars, who know nothing of our satellite imagery and our troops in the area who would’ve stopped any WMD shipment. Again, I was a 26Y for the military working in the field of satellite communications, with a top secret security clearance. Don’t you think for one moment (I’ll wait) that Bush and company would’ve jumped at the chance to prove Saddam was moving his WMD before the war, in order to justify their invasion?!

          • mcbee555

            It wouldn’t matter to you what the source of my information was. I’m 100% dead certain you know nothing about that.
            Iran-Iraq fought a war for twelve years, yet Saddam’s A.F. turned themselves over to Iran rather than to be destroyed by the coalition after we invaded.. For a guy who purports to be well-read re: Arab nations,(Iran is not Arab incidentally) you must not have absorbed much. The convoys of trucks running from Baghdad into Syria-Lebanon were then known to be Russian “Embassy support” personnel evacuating Iraq before the coalition arrived. Coalition a/c would not have fired on Russian convoy columns. The Russians lifted their equipment out of Iraq, plus the poison gas materials. I noted that this all was ongoing in the days prior to U.S. troops arriving at Baghdad.
            Of course, you’d state that the books you read weren’t written by “pathological liars,” because you were a “26Y designation.” It had to be everyone else who read books by “pathological liars,” but not you! WTH, with everything you purport to know, you didn’t need to read a thing, you could have written a book, but you know nothing about Arabs and that’s what Iraq was all about.Plus, what has you steamed is on this thread you’ve been found wanting. We found out about Iraq the hard way. Bush didn’t run that invasion, Bush took it before our government for consensus of agreement,(not being an imperial President), Colin Powell called it from the Pentagon and Norm Schwartzkopf directed it in the field. The issue was to neutralize the then world’s 4th largest military, a threat to Saudi Arabia in which America was(is) heavily committed, they probably felt they’d find WMD’s in the process, but the Russians and Saddam were one step ahead. The Russians have trumped us via their military intelligence before. They don’t have extended layers of command, we do.
            The impetus of invasion was not to find WMD’s, we knew Saddam had used them, it was to take Saddam and his military down, which was done and as a consequence bring Saddam and Co. to justice, which also was done.
            Incidentally, your attention to Presidents must have stopped with George W. Bush, who is a fine Christian man and was never a chronic liar like Obama is.. George W. Bush loves his country, he’s intensely loyal to our country. He never as much as replied to taunts and accusations from people like you. You couldn’t get any satisfaction at his expense. You still demonize him yet the worst liar ever,,Obama, of all the Presidents from the very first, escapes your “astute” criticism. That figures!

          • KingofBeers

            If the reason for war was to take Saddams military down, why weren’t they forthright about this? No, instead they used scare tactics…mushroom cloud, yellow cake, tubes for nuclear centrifuges. 12 years of inspections, everything dismantled, nothing left, as confirmed by the Iraq Survey Group, IAEA, our own CIA, and now, British intelligence M-16…nothing. 1991-2003. Bush uses statements by curveball, who admitted in 2012 he made everything up, false statements, subterfuge, false connections. I don’t blame you though, a good 63% of republicans still believe WMD were moved! even though you cannot produce one shred of evidence. For some reason you need to believe all this loss of life and expense was justified. Even Bush admitted they were wrong about WMD. Where does that leave your conspiracy theory?

          • mcbee555

            WTH, you’re beating the issue to death. It is what it is, you can ask “why” into infinity. I don’t have a conspiracy theory, you do…remember? Hey, here’s my suggestion, break out a case of your precious beer and deal with it the best you can. Don’t hand me that crap about 63% of Republicans. You are quick to categorize people into percentage segments. Get over it, man. I don’t care to be your pen pal, I’ve tried to allow you the courtesy of reply, but you can’t get through your noggin that someone called you out on your fantasy. No one’s impressed by the credentials you keep trying to sell here and that irks you too.. Your life was fulfilled when Obama was elected and as long as you have George W. Bush as your scapegoat your fabricated life is complete. A good idea would be for you to have an anti-Bush inscription on your headstone. Do it soon.

You never read views which differ from your bias, prejudice and hatred. You prefer views which justify and support your complete lack of understanding. Bush lied to us continuously, and I can prove multiple cases. I’m sure you’ll just say he was misinformed because the truth is too unbearable for you. Thank God you, and those like you, are an ever shrinking percentage of the electorate.

        I don’t agree that President George W. Bush had flaws. He was human and may have made mistakes. I know of NO mistakes he made, which doesn’t prove anything. But he led the nation well and chose advisers well and didn’t wast money on fancy fund-raising events all over the country and vacations at million-dollar locales. President Bush is a man the nation should be proud of. President Obama is a man the nation should be aware of as an enemy who seeks our destruction.

          Bush left America two failed disastrous wars and an economy in FREEFALL! Helloooooo!!

    • http://missionoutreach.org Ray_Downen

      President George W. Bush served the nation honestly, honorably, and well. He was blindsided by Democrats and for the last two years of his presidency had to watch the Congress set up the fiasco which met Obama when he became president. President George W. Bush is one of the best presidents this nation has had.

      President Obama is easily the worst ever. A Muslim masquerading as a Christian. And he fooled enough voters and owned enough voting machines to get back into office for another shot at our destruction.

      Assad didn’t use the poison gas, by the way. It was his Muslim enemies who did it and blamed him. He proved his innocence by his willingness to have the poison gas destroyed. He didn’t use any. He wouldn’t have used any. He had no use for it.

      And Obama gets no credit for anything in foreign affairs. He’s bungled every step of the way. Our friends no longer can trust us. Our enemies have no fear of us with Obama in charge. There’s a great deal we give credit to Obama for. He’s almost succeeded in destroying our economy. He’s made us a laughing stock in the world. He’s done exactly what he intended to do to us, but not at all what he SAID his intentions were.

        GW is worse than something I scrap off the bottom of my shoe. A despicable man, who again has the blood of all those innocents on his hands. A man who had intel stating Iraq no longer had WMD, hid this intel from congress to justify his war. What president takes our nation to war when he has conflicting intelligence? Wouldn’t a sane man want to find out the truth before making such a serious decision? A man who tortured in violation of our signed Geneva convention, a man who called our constitution “that damned piece of paper.” This is who you idolize?! Obama has done a much better job with foreign policy…it’s ludicrous to even place Bush in the same ball park. If we had a republican president, we’d be at war with Iran, Syria, Libya, and still be in Iraq with no end in sight, but corporations like Halliburton would sure be making a ton of blood money!

      Nor any commission from any secular authority as well.

      If we had a smart leader we’d surely help our allies and seek to defeat known enemies. Obama has it wrong. He helps our enemies and seeks to defeat our allies. His aim is to destroy the U.S.A. and he’s near to succeeding.

        Please, your victim mentality is sure getting on my nerves.

        You fake conservatives are more dangerous to our country than the liberals.

        • Jane

          Sorry to burst your bubble, Pissed off but you’re wrong and Ray is right.

  • Dave P.

    Well he’s only continued what Bush started and the neocons have been cheering for this whole time.

    Wrong is wrong, regardless of who is in office.

    • mcbee555

      Your last line. “Wrong is wrong….” may mean more than you intended. Since Bush, in your opinion was so wrong, why would a man who allegedly knew Bush was so wrong, continue with Bush’s wrong policy as if he, Obama, had no mind of his own? Since he appears to have been the answer as far as you’re concerned, why would original-thinking Obama “only continue what Bush started?” In his 6th year as President, he still has done nothing but damage to the nation.
      Obviously, you cannot perceive that Obama, with both houses of Congress for at least two+ years, could have been the deliverer he represented himself to be, and stopped his “continuing what Bush started.” He does talk incessantly of his “pen and phone.” Anyone so omnipotent ought to have reversed a prior policy if he did more than talking about how bad it was and had rectified the situation.
      Instead, as you volunteered, “he’s only continued what Bush started.” As an Obama partisan, you must be in favor of multiplying whatever errors you cite of a previous President for use by the next one, Obama, to duplicate. How about citing how Obama’s “leadership” has produced world-wide disrespect for America, not paid-down the national debt, not secured our borders,and how this fake “Constitutional Law Professor” has not abided by the oath he took to support the U.S. Constitution?
      Forget the trolling if you can, I’ve heard all the Socialist alibi lines.

        Can anyone imagine how embarrassing this must be for the Nobel Prize Committee must be for handing Obama the Nobel Prize for Peace when he didn’t do anything? Boy do they have egg on their self-righteous faces!

        • mcbee555

          Those five Norwegian scholars devalued the Nobel Prize in one motion. How long did they wait for Obama to prove himself worthy….was it 5 or 10 minutes?:);)
          Maybe they knew Obama would be a miserable flop if they waited even one day.

    • http://missionoutreach.org Ray_Downen

      Dave speaks nonsense. President Bush had a coherent and wise foreign policy. Obama has none that gives any advantage to the U.S.A. All he knows how to do is give away money and prestige to those who clamor for it. Islam is an enemy of every free nation, making no secret of their intention to conquer in the name of Allah EVERY nation. Instead of arming against Islam, Obama is arming his agencies against us citizens and preparing to put down the revolution he invites by his foolish policies. President Bush went to war for good purposes and won the war in Iraq which now has been lost by Obama’s foolishness. Wrong is surely wrong. Obama is wrong. President Bush was right all the way every day.

  • KingofBeers

    Initially, Obama wanted military strikes against Syria, something the American people didn’t support. So, now a diplomatic solution is in place, which the American people do support. We have Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles being destroyed. (And no, they did not get chemical weapons from Iraq)

    We already have stiff sanctions against Syria and their chems are being destroyed, again, all without firing a shot. Shouldn’t this be considered a success?!

    But republicans have another solution to Syria. Defund Obamacare, and scream Benghazi. Brilliant!

    • http://missionoutreach.org Ray_Downen

      But Hussein’s poison gas WAS shipped to Assad “for safekeeping” and retained there. We have no reason to believe Assad used poison gas against anyone in Syria. There’s every reason to suppose his attackers used poison gas and sought to blame it on Assad. King wants to bring other things into the discussion. I suppose it’s because he knows he’s holding a losing hand siding with Obama against Assad. And how urgent is the need to defund and stop Obamacare.

      Which has nothing to do with the support we SHOULD be giving Assad against his and our enemies. Obama has been aiding and arming our enemies to fight against Assad and all who are not yet victims of Islam. And Obama has hidden the truth about his birth well and the truth about Benghazi less well and the truth about the I.R.S. scandal even less well.

      All are topics we should be considering. But meanwhile, back to Assad. He deserves thanks for protecting Christians who have since been victimized by his attackers. I believe we should remove sanctions and offer aid instead! If we were led by a Christian, our foreign policy would be to prevent the rise of Islam everywhere.

      Obama gives OUR money to Muslims in many nations to try to buy their friendship. We need our money here to pay our debts. Obama knows how to spend money and give away money but has no idea how to conserve money except for his own future. He obviously cares nothing for the future of the U.S.A.

      • KingofBeers

        You, sir, are an uneducated old fool. There is zero proof Saddam shipped WMD to Syria. In the military I worked in SatCom at Ft. Detrick…the same fort which has our military biological and chemical research center. This gas has a shelf life of 5 years, less if the two active ingredients are mixed. We have reports from intelligence agencies stating Saddams WMD program was dismantled after the first Gulf war. And why would Saddam ship all his WMD to Syria, an arch enemy of his? Huh? We know Syria had its own chemical weapons program for decades.

        Since you pretend to know so much about our system of government, you should know, at the very least, that congress authorizes all money given to other nations…our president can’t give a dime without congressional approval…they hold the purse strings.

        And now you’re defending Assad?! Unbelievable.

  • $25014546

    Obama should lose in Syria. He is using U.S. taxpayer money to arm and support Al Qaeda terrorist jihadists, who are enemies if the U.S.

  • http://missionoutreach.org Ray_Downen

    The enemies of Assad are enemies of the U.S.A. Assad protected Christians in his land. His enemies kill Christians in Assad’s land and we want to OPPOSE Assad? Strange thinking, it seems to me! But to be expected by the Muslim in the White House.

    • seeymour kleerly

      After Bush removed the Secular Sadam, Christians in Iraq were forced to flee the newly empowered Islamists!!

  • Jimbo Jones

    Homs, the rebel base city has been lost. The war is over. Ukraine is going to be split apart.Now on to Africa for Obama. Is Boko Haram going to be the new Al Qaeda? It sure looks like it.

    • Jane

      So does anyone believe the BS that Islam is a religion of peace any more — if anyone ever did?

      • Jimbo Jones

        Okay so how did the Mussies bring down building seven? And how did the mussies steal all the gold from the vault at WTC 6 the night before the attack without anyone seeing? Religion of the family is more accurate.

    Obama doesn’t like to limit himself, he’s failing at everything. He’s even passed Carter in screwing up. And that took talent.
