Obama’s most recent approach to the Syrian situation is a demonstration of lacking any idea about the conduct of military conflicts. It could be that Obama’s Islamic exposure at his formative years makes him fear action againest Islam, or that he is simply unable to make hard decisions. His announcement of August 31, 2013 is tantamount to admitting moral defeat, and the lacking of leadership ability. This decision could cause carnage to a high level allies, and potentially members of the US military. The situation is alarming, let us all hope that does not develop to a major international conflict; since if it does, there is no question now that President Obama is not the man to lead this nation is either peace, or war.
Putting off action for weeks, just so he does not have to make harsh decision against a Muslim nation, is a cop-out. Syria already passed Obama’s redline, what is he waiting for?
Barak Hussein Obama proves again that he is not only America’s Commander in Chief (C.i.C.,) but that he is also America’s Capitulator in Chief (C.i.C.)
Telling Assad how far the United States will be willing to go, and giving the Syrian monster a few weeks to prepare, is tantamount to accepting [moral] defeat.
“PRESIDENT BARAK HUSSEIN OBAMA TOOK FOUR AND A HALF YEARS TO SURPASS GEORGE W. BUSH, AND JIMMY CARTER AS THE UNDISPUTED WORST PRESIDENT IN CONTEMPORARY US HISTORY!
His present dealing with an international emergency caused him to pass George W. Bush, and Jimmy Carter.
For a warier to broadcast to the enemy that there “will not be boots on the ground,” or “a long term commitment,” is the epitome of stupidity. Giving the Syrians two weeks to prepare, and perhaps decide to use its chemical arsenal on US troops in the region, is outright dumb!
Further, more time for Assad’s chemicals can fall in the hands of terrorists.
Finally, the regime, an enemy of the United States, and the rebels, with elements of al Qaeda, is a rogue heterogeneous group who, if gained control of the chemicals would represent a danger to the whole “infidels (non-Muslim)” world, especially to the United States and its allies, Israel on top of the list.
