Weekend Edition: Obama’s Syrian Disaster

Next Tuesday evening, as things stand now, Obama will make what is likely to be regarded, by history, as the most desperate, pathetic plea for war ever made by a United States president.

On the eve of 9/11…A date of dual significance to Americans, Obama will take his sad, anemic case for striking Syria, in effect, declaring war ON Syria, to the American people in a last ditch and what is most likely to be a deeply flawed and failed attempt, to sway the votes of congress.

The case he is planning to present is that the United States has a “moral obligation” to strike and enter Syria’s civil war and he must, again, try to convince the American people and congress that it was Assad who launched a chemical attack on August 21st but, that will be a tall order as more and more evidence is belittling that argument.

 Carla  del Ponte, a member of the UN Independent Commission of Inquiry on Syria and someone who should know the truth, has let it be known, in the face of Obama’s claims, that, “Our investigators have been in neighbouring countries interviewing victims, doctors and field hospitals and, according to their report of last week which I have seen, there are strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof of the use of sarin gas, from the way the victims were treated.”

And then, the bombshell if one can employ that word under these circumstances.

“This was used on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities.”

Obama and John Kerry have told us that it was Assad’s government and Kerry has even referred to “THOUSANDS OF REPORTS” that have been declassified and made available.

It seems, those “THOUSANDS OF REPORTS” are likely in the form of social media and twitter posts from the region and are backed up by no hard evidence whatsoever while, Carla del Ponte, a member of the UN Independent Commission of Inquiry on Syria, tells us that, “This was used on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities.”

It makes one wonder, doesn’t it, just what the CLASSIFIED reports contain that he has shown to only a handful of house and senate members and where, exactly, his “CLASSIFIED” material came from.

Obama, from his setting of the “red line” a year ago to what will be his desperate plea to congress next Tuesday to what is looking more and more like a sound defeat when it comes to a vote in the house and senate, has made a mess of this whole thing.

It’s worse than a mess.

It is a disaster…The ramifications of which will be felt for a long, long time.

From Fast and Furious to Libya to Egypt and Benghazi to Syria…Obama has taken a once feared and respected voice on the world stage and reduced it to the status of a “community organizer” which is now, below what many had considered him to be when he first gained office…An amateur.

Obama’s ineffective first selection for Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton whose greatest achievement apparently was to log more than a million air miles as she missed entirely on everything from the Russian “reset button” to letting North Korea’s Kim Jong Un make a fool of the United States with a handshake and a promise to her treasonous acts in hiring our enemies in a time of war as security in Benghazi and her pathetic “WHAT DIFFERENCE, AT THIS POINT, DOES IT MAKE?” attempts at helping Obama cover it all up and her oblivious reaction to the fact that, under her “leadership” her own State Department Security Team was running drugs and hooker rings in far-away nations, Hillary, on the world stage, was a disgrace.

In the 1970’s, Hillary was fired from the Watergate investigation due to unethical behavior…In the 1990’s, as “First Lady,” Hillary allowed her husband to make a fool of her and, as Secretary of State, she let the world do the same thing.

Now, Obama’s 2nd Secretary of State, a tired old well-worn anti-war demonstrator who traitorously allowed himself to be the pawn of the communist North Vietnamese in the 1960’s has now, strode right off the plank for Obama on Syria by having his melodramatic and VERY public speech a week ago undermined the very next day by Obama followed by his terse responses and fabricated information presented to house and senate committees.

By presenting himself as a war hawk, trying to gin up support from congress and the international community for a military action we have no business in undertaking, John Kerry has made himself suspect on the diplomatic stage.

Should a situation arise, in the next 3 years, where legitimate coalition building become necessary, the rest of the world won’t trust him as far as they can throw him and where diplomacy rather than might is concerned, other nations will turn a deaf ear in his and our direction.

Our allies, already untrusting of Obama will not place trust in Kerry’s actions either as they see him as nothing more than Obama’s puppet and our enemies and the enemies of our allies will exploit the weakness to their advantage.

Iran, Hezbollah and al Qaeda are already doing so by puffing out their collective chests and threatening attacks on America and Obama’s family should Obama attack Syria as they are now, firmly convinced, that the United States is but a mere shadow of its former self.

Acting against Syria with any kind of strike now, will just further embolden them as our enemies realize it would be nothing more than a desperate last grasp at the final straw of world relevance by a dysfunctional and hollow Obama administration.

The next 3 years will be perilous.

Our allies don’t trust us and our enemies don’t fear us.

Because of Obama and his administration, the United States is but a stand-in on the world stage and what little standing we did have, has vanished due to Obama’s Syrian disaster.

Obama’s Department of State rings with lies, corruption and hollow leadership that can employ diplomacy effectively enough to make it’s own way out of a paper sack.

Why, after all, would other nations want to follow those who…Lead from behind?

Why would other nations get out of the way of those with brooms and shovels at the back of the parade?

Has the United States always made perfect decisions on the world stage?


But we have always been able to make course corrections and steer things back to center.

It’s a different story now.

You can’t make course corrections when the ship of state…Is sinking.

Tomorrow, in The National Patriot’s Weekend Edition, I will explore Obama’s options.

  1. Check out John Podhortz article in “must” reads on Lucianne.com. He is doing it on purpose as he promised 5 days before 1st election, that they wwere about to fundamentally change America,

    Never forget as we rebuild and never say both partys are the same.

    Never forget!

  2. As Mitt Romney would have said “Not only ‘No’ but heck “no”.

    The nation did it to itself, a clear choice was to be had but Pride and his father ruled.

    Those who had/have eyes to see…

  3. “But we have always been able to make course corrections and steer things back to center.” The Supreme Court declared most New Deal programs unconstitutional in 1937. And of course they left the centerpiece, social security, intact. The next time a social (socialist) program was pared back was in ’96 with welfare reform. That is the only time that we became slightly less socialist in seventy-six years. No, we have not been able to steer things back to the center. You are lying to yourself.

    • Edgar,

      YOU just read an article dealing 100% with FOREIGN POLICY and chose to make YOUR COMMENT about DOMESTIC POLICY in order to accuse me of LYING to myself?
      That’s just pathetically sad.


  4. There is one thing, one secret the Obama administration and the media can’t tell us. Saudi Arabia is behind the Sarin attack and the attack as is, was probably an accident.
    You see; we are the Saudi’s bitch. They own us. We and our fouled up economy are on petro dollars. The Saudis could yank the economic rug out from under us if we don’t play ball.
    The Saudis want a pipeline to the Bosporus straits and Europe. Syria is in the way. Assad won’t play ball, so Assad has to go.
    We have to do this for the Saudis because under the command of the Saudis, Obama nixed the Keystone-XL Pipeline. The Saudis could make us a third world country over night. Which would bring revolution and civil war here to the US. Which when yo think about it; isn’t such a bad idea.
    But wait; there’s more! A Pipeline from the Saudis to Europe would destabilize Russia’s economy. Putin won’t allow this, so war with Syria means war with Russia.
    It also means war with Iran and Iran could sink oil tankers in the Straits of Hormuz and so, block the oil coming from the Persian gulf. China is not about to stand for that crap.
    So you see, being on petro dollars has seriously fouled this country up. This all started by the way; with that son of a bitch FDR and his new deal. Democrats are just plain scum.

  5. Frank,

    Correct on all counts! I know I read an assessment by Charles Krauthammer (Fox News) from back in 2009 I believe. If you do a search, there have been several other analyses by psychiatric professionals – all of them very troubling to those of us who are paying attention.

  6. I believe Obama has a serious psychological problems. He’s a pathological liar, A Narcist, a Sociopath and an Egomaniac. Just to name a few of his symptoms.
    I would like to see psychologist or psychiatrist weigh in on this.

  7. A great summary of the issue. However, I was and am under the impression that this administration had lost all hope of effective leadership in Benghazi, Libya, both as a major player on the world stage and as one of the world’s most feared military forces. This administration clearly has no idea when to hold em or when to fold em, and real leaders all over the world can see that. They have been patient, they have tried teaching him how it’s done, but he is not entreatable and will kill us all if we don’t replace him, and soon.

    “What were people thinking when they elected him?”

    They weren’t thinking at all; they were electing a rock star, and failed to do even 10 minutes of easy fact checking on this Marxist moron. Elections have consequences and we have yet to see the worst from this clown. We now live in a police state but they have yet to tighten the screws.

    Let’s hope Churchill was right: “Americans always do the right thing, after exhausting all other available alternatives”. The right thing means dumping the Muslim imposter and dumping every traitorous Democrat and every Republican RINO in the Senate and the House. It’s the only way we can save our Republic.

    May God help us; he is the only one can.

  9. You are dead on when you say we don’t have anything to depend on. It’s obvious this clown and all his wanna-be’s (clones) are disgusting and self serving to say the least. He’s a Chicago thug.
    Impeach him, throw the other trash in prison and whitewash the White House, Congress, DOJ, IRS, NSA, CIA, FBI, etc. inside and out. In more simple terms, bring back the Constitution and stop the lunacy in “We The People’s” government.

  10. Great article. We are in so much trouble with such a weak puppet in charge. What were people thinking when they elected him?
