Remember the explosion of pitchforks and torches, brandished by an infuriated, leftist mob over George W. Bush’s handling of Iraq? The screeching from the lap-dog media and politicians that spun in the wind of public sentiment, as to whether they were for or against U.S. military action, was incessant. Now, Obama is in the process of committing the United States to unilateral military action. No consent from Congress. No U.N. authorization. Ah, how quickly libs forget. Or, rather, how quickly they expect the rest of us to.
The U.K. Independent points out that by taking up the cudgel against Bashar al-Assad, Obama is joining forces with al-Qaeda against a common enemy:
“The men who destroyed so many thousands on 9/11 will then be fighting alongside the very nation whose innocents they so cruelly murdered almost exactly 12 years ago. Quite an achievement for Obama… This, of course, will not be trumpeted by the Pentagon or the White House — nor, I suppose, by al-Qa’ida — though they are both trying to destroy Bashar. So are the Nusra front, one of al-Qa’ida’s affiliates.”
It won’t be trumpeted by the MSM either. The MSM won’t ask “if attacking Iraq was so wrong, why is attacking Syria right? What is it Obama stands to gain?”
Instead of furious denouncements and insistence upon years more fact finding heaped upon George Bush by the U.N. they are now pleading with Obama to hold off on taking any action … for four more days.
According to The Weekly Standard, the U.N. doesn’t know who-did-what-to-whom-with-what, and they are begging for a few more days to find out. Then, presumably, the Nobel Peace Prize Recipient-In-Chief will be free to inflict whatever damage he can with our truncated military might.
If one has never considered the question before, now might be a really good time to ask “Why is America is still funding the United Nations?” They haven’t had a democratic majority in decades yet America is still the United Nations’ largest contributor. What the U.N. clearly expects from America is our real estate, money, acceptance of their abuse and for us to take over military activity anywhere they can’t keep the peace … which is everywhere.
Obama’s Arab Spring has become the winter of the world’s discontent. As liberals always do, Obama waves a loaded gun around trying to look tough. Now he’s stuck with his “red-line” threat against the al-Assad regime in Syria. Despite a slavish media, frantically trying to extricate his feet from his mouth, Obama is on stage, front and center. And it isn’t just a PC-whipped America that is monitoring the action.
Obama is being carefully observed on the world stage, by enemies and friends alike. And he is openly joining our enemy. The world’s onlookers don’t care about his historic presidency, his easily-bruised ego or what color he is. They just want to see how far The Great Satan can now be pushed.
Right off the edge of the cliff, apparently.
