Although the U.S. focus remains on exerting diplomatic and economic pressure on Syria, the Pentagon and the U.S. Central Command have begun a preliminary internal review of U.S. military capabilities, CNN has learned.
The options are being prepared in the event President Barack Obama were to call for them. Two senior administration officials who spoke about the review to CNN emphasized that U.S. policy for now remains the use of non-military options.
The focus on diplomatic options was underscored by the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations in an interview with CNN on Tuesday.
"Before we start talking about military options, we very much want to ensure that we have exhausted all the political, economic and diplomatic means at our disposal," Ambassador Susan Rice said on CNN's “Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.”
The president has also said that the U.S. is working on non-military options first.
"I think it is very important for us to try to resolve this without recourse to outside military intervention, and I think that's possible," Obama said in an interview with NBC News that aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday.
But the military is beginning to look at what can be done. One of the senior U.S. officials called the effort a “scoping exercise” to see what capabilities are available given other U.S. military commitments in the region.
Both officials pointed out that this type of planning exercise is typical for the Pentagon, which would not want to be in the position of not having options for the president, if and when they are asked for.
It would be Gen. James Mattis, head of U.S. Central Command, who would provide details on what U.S. military assets are available, what missions they could perform if asked, and what risks U.S. forces might face.
“The Pentagon is closely monitoring developments in Syria. It wouldn’t be doing its job if it didn’t put some ideas on the table,” one of the senior U.S. officials told CNN. “But absolutely no decisions have been made on military support for Syria.”
The two officials were not willing to be identified because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
Typically those types of options are held by the Pentagon as very preliminary plans and not even forwarded to the White House unless asked for. If asked, plans are then fleshed out with specific units to support them.
In this type of analysis being done, the military would typically look at all options ranging from humanitarian relief, to support for opposition groups, as well as outright military strikes, although that is an unlikely option, both officials said.
“This remains a campaign to apply economic and diplomatic pressure,” the first official said.
The military’s work to analyze potential military options for Syria has been quietly going on for several weeks, two administration officials confirm to CNN. The bulk of the analysis is being done by staff of General Mattis, who would be the senior commander if the President were to order any action.
Mattis’ analysis is being shared with General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who would then present options to the White House, if it came to that.
“We don’t want to be in the position of suddenly dusting off some five year old plan,” one official said. The official emphasized the work is extremely preliminary but said the military would look at a full range of contingencies.
Arizona Sen. John McCain, the top Republican on the Armed Services committee, told reporters Tuesday that the U.S. should consider "all options including arming the opposition."
But U.S. officials said that adding weapons into the volatile and violent situation is not a viable option.
"We never take anything off the table. The president does (or) doesn't. However, as the president himself made absolutely clear and as the secretary has continued to say, we don't think more arms into Syria is the answer," said State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.
look at that picture of the impeached slick's wife???/ BARRY HAS DESTROYED HER..............HE HAS USED HER TO push his wish to burn down the middle east – (and removed her from EVER RUNNING FOR OFFICE AGAIN – she made a pact with the devil)
ever wonder why he cares about all the slaughter in the streets IN EVERY OTHER COUNTRY EXCEPT EXCEPT EXCEPT FOR IMAHEADJOB IN IRAN................they can slaughter their people in the streets and Obama turns a deaf ear..............HE IS CARTERIZING US GUYS..............you liberals told us that Bush made the world hate us????
MR PEACE PRIZE IS DOING THINGS THAT WILL GET US BOMBED FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES BY THESE FANATICS, they are killing everyone in Iraq that helped us and now that Obama has let it slip that we will be dumping Afghans too – THE BEHEADING IS BEGINNING...................we will never get the Obama slime off of us in world politics...........where are those liberals who stood on my corner with their 'kill bush' signs??????? OBAMA IS KILLING SOLDIERS AT 5 TIMES THE RATE OF BUSH AND CHENEY and even though you ignore that and the media ignores that THE BODIES ARE PILING UP GUYS...............can't make em disappear forever...........remember when OBAMA stood and used those dead soldier's caskets AS A PHOTO OP TO BASH BUSH – this veteran WILL NEVER FORGET!!!!!
@Gerri – actually refuting her points would go a far cry further than – "YOU LIE!"
Vote Ron Paul! He is the only real answer to these problems. I worry that we won't see this in time though...
Jimmy Carter creaked the lid on Pandora's box open just a little bit. We got the USS Cole, The army Barracks in Lebanon Al Qaida and 9/11. How did he do it? By toppling the Shah of Iran's govt. Yes the Shah was a dictator but he held back a people who's world view was dangerous to our interests. The problem that people don't see is that Islam, the predominant world view of the Middle East, is not amenable to a benevolent form of Democracy. It requires dictatorships in order to contain the people's passions.
Now Mr. O has toppled Mubarak in Egypt, Ghadafi in Libya and a number of other dictators. That's the equivalent of the Shah of Iran going several times over. If the Shah's departure resulted in what we now call "the war on terror", what will these dictators departures going to result in? I'll tell you what. ALL HELL IS ABOUT TO BREAK LOOSE. Unless Iran stands down, we are on the brink of WWIII within just a matter of a few months.
it's good to finally see ron pauls message, of minding our own damn business in these comments
Stop the hate and nastiness that divides us all and let's support our president in the effort to bring about peace. I support my president and you should too!
DID you support Bush when he went to the only country that had lost a war with us and signed surrender documents THAT SAID WE COULD COME ANYTIME ANYPLACE/??????? NO!
you liberals wanted to kill my commander in chief for that – so now you ask for tolerance for THIS PIG –.what changed?? SMELLS LIKE YOU LIBERALS JUST PUT PARTY OVER AMERICA EVERYTIME – we warned the nation they would and people are outraged............. Obama is going home – we can't survive with another 4 years – sorry – you boys have to know that
You frighten me. Please seek medical attention for your paranoia.
gerri. this n-azi pig is not my president. the only thing i'll get behind with him involved is his trial for terrorism, treason, mass murder, and sedition as a Domestic Enemy of this Republic.
as soon as someone flings out the 'N-word', the conversation has bottomed out. You are disrespectful to your ancestors for comparing our teleprompter-reading pres to Hilter or Nazi. you f' n dim wit
If anybody is a, in your terms, a n-azi, it is any one of the GOP neo-conjob clowns running for the Repugantan president slot. All Americans are sick of the Nancy RomneyTanya Gingrich fight. Obama 2012!
Obama = luciferian nazi. same as the bush's, the clinton's, reid, pelosi, john mccain, cheney, rumsfeld, graham, napolitano, pistol, holdren, holder, bill gates, et al.
Warmonger Obama/Biden 2012
Sure Gerri, and I'll bet you were right upfront supporting President Bush too, right?
Like most Americans I supported the toops when Bush was abusing the White House. Now, you all should support the toops with Obama in office.
Get your head out of the sand...
2012 DNC to Feature Million-Dollar Tix, Luxury Suites, Concierge Services...
FLASHBACK: 2008 DNC Stage Resembles Ancient Greek Temple...
boy do the liberals have you snookered, you must be a union hag
Gerri, I'll try again with you as you avoided my question. I asked you if supported President Bush, in response to your comment of:
”Stop the hate and nastiness that divides us all and let's support our president in the effort to bring about peace. I support my president and you should too!"
And you responded only that you support the "Toops?" (I'll assume “troops” was your intent or do you type with a lisp?) Nothing about supporting the president at the time. Now you demand we support the current president when you yourself, hypocritically did not support a past president under identical circumstances. You simply bear out what I have known for some time and that is that the first prerequisite for Liberalism is hypocrisy. You sit back and preach tolerance while name calling, you demand behavior in others you are incapable of yourself and you preach peace at all costs while supporting Mr. Obamas idiotic attempts to justify a potential incursion into Syria. Now one last time, please, did you or did you not support President Bush as you would have us support President Obama? A simple yes or no will do.
SHE WAS PROBABLY ONE OF THOSE CARRYING THE 'KILL BUSH' SIGNS..........they don't understand what they did when they threatened to kill our guy............and now ask us to be civil......remember when the impeached stain launched all our missiles to take the attention away from him sticking cigars in the jewish intern, people said it was wag the dog AND THE MEDIA BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF THEM – SAID WE HAD TO TALK NICE ABOUT THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF WHILE WE WERE AT WAR
THEN THEY CARRIED 'KILL BUSH' SIGNS FOR 3 YEARS, BOUGHT PROPERTY OUTSIDE BUSH'S VACATION HOUSE AND TORMENTED HIM....................OBAMA JUST CHARGES US 14 MILLION IN VACATION AND TAKES OUT 3 LEADERS IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND SILENCE........
THESE POOR DUMBOCRATS – THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT THE RULES CHANGED ON THEM..........THEIR OLD LITTLE CENSORSHIP TRICKS AREN'T GOING TO WORK ANYMORE
Just what we need, another crazy Asian war. A predictable result of the neoconservative/isolationist Bush-Obama-Romney foreign policy.
just like the impeached clinton – ARE WE GOING TO BELIEVE OUR 'LYING EYES' our Obama's teleprompter....
your freak has started a WAR IN EVERY COUNTRY IN THE MIDDLE EAST
ROFL ROFL ROFL ROFL and you think the blame bush WILL WORK AGAIN?????? this is why the Democrat party keeps you boys dumb, bet you got that from MSLSD................
Hi Cate(if I may), this fool is even blaming Romney! Let's just hope he is practicing! Anybody but Obama in Nov. 2012, anybody at all.
funny you said that – last march I purchase 300 dollars worth of bumper stickers I created
A.B.O. – 2012
Anybody BUT Obama
I have sold out, heheheheheheheheehehehe
Hey that's pretty good, we seem to be on the same page! Hopefully us and 80 million others to boot!
THE NUMBERS ARE 8-2 AGAINST THIS PIG, WE ARE JUST SEEING THOSE 2% ROTTERS BEATING THE REST, IT IS GETTING FUNNY EXCEPT FOR THE LIVES OBAMA HAS DESTROYED
THEY CAN'T HIDE THE UNEMPLOYED, FORECLOSURED AND FOOD STAMP PEOPLE ANYMORE, THE BODIES AND THE BODIES OF THE DEAD SOLDIERS ARE PILING UP WHETHER THE LIBERAL MEDIA ACKNOWLEDGES IT OR NOT
WE ARE LIVING IN OBAMANATION AND IT IS THE DEPRESSION
400,000 AMERICANS STOP PAYING TAXES AND MORTGAGES EVERY WEEK, 1.2 MILLION A MONTH FOR 3 YEARS, THE DESTRUCTION IS DONE..............THEY AIN'T PAYING TAXES
I'm glad they just noticed Syria and are getting around to thinking about it. .......Incompetence.....
you mean that they just noticed another sovereign nation with no ability to defend itself that they can march on and eradicate and turn into a pile of debris while robbing them of any and all natural resources and enslaving those that survive to a debt system at the hands of the IMF?
Well, if we would finally pay ourselves back with resources, that would be a step up. RE, most of your rant: No, that really wasn't anywhere in my statement or meaning, but thanks for playing.
America needs to stay the heck out of Syria completely!!
Obama has let the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda take over enough countries already.
AMEN AMEN, just like the Shah of Iran, I was serving with Navy Iranian pilots in 1976 (at NAS WHITING FIELD, FL, we trained them alongside US Navy pilots0
, the SHAH WAS WESTERNIZING THE AREA and the idiot Carter put a fork in him (AND TO THIS DAY EVERY LIBERAL WILL TELL YOU THE PIMPLES ON THE SHAH WHILE IGNORING THE DANGEROUS MULLAHS THAT TOOK OVER) (just like they thought Vietnam Afghanistan was the 'GOOD' WAR – ROFL ROFL THE 'RIGHT' WAR – REMEMBER????)
CAN YOU IMAGINE A WESTERNIZED FREE IRAN BY NOW – freedom always wins when they don't kill their citizens in the street..............IDIOT OBAMA WILL TURN THE MIDDLE EAST OVER TO THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD JUST LIKE CARTER TURNED IRAN OVER TO THE MULLAHS IN THE LATE 70s and they killed everyone that helped the Shah and Americans back then tooo................
the Muslim brotherhood just won the election in Egypt (HARD TO FIND THAT STORY BY MY LEFTWINGNUT LIBERAL MEDIA) REMEMBER THE GOOD OLE DAYS WHEN THEY REPORTED EVERY SINGLE DEATH 3 TIMES A DAY??????
– WHO KNEW GLENN BECK WAS RIGHT ON THE MONEY ABOUT THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD- AND GOT FIRED because it was politically incorrect to SAY THE TRUTH-THAT IS WHERE BARRY HUSSEIN HAS BROUGHT US
even China and Russia have had enough with the muslim brotherhood BLACKMAILING US BY KILLING CIVILIANS UNTIL OBAMA AND HILLARY BUCKLE..............it is easy to fool dumbocrats.............these muslim brotherhoood know that BARRY IS ON THEIR SIDE – why else would he be burning down the middle east and HANDING THE COUNTRIES TO THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.......AND LEAVING HANDS OFF IRAN?????.........and Obama is willing to FIGHT CHINA AND RUSSIA 'FOR' IRAN – enough – time he goes back to thugville Chicago...............only way America can survive
Exactly. Carter "screwed" the pooch in Iran and the Kenyan Marxist is trying to follow the precedent throughout the Middle East. Remember his campaign promise to "stand with my muslim brothers and sisters". Oh for the joys of the worldwide Caliphate... NOT.. The entire population of Syria is not worth one American life or dollar.
Yep, How's that "Arab Spring" working out, Er I mean uh, the "Pan Arab Caliphate". I almost let one slip there, better be careful, somebody might catch on before the election.
None of our friggin' business.
War with Syria?
I don't get it. I just don't get it...
Unless demoCraps are beating up on savages (Afghans Pakis Yemenis Samalis Libyans) with no real Army sure they'll bomb the crap out of them ffrom 50,000 feet. Otherwise Syria or Iran, we ain't going there.
None of this is really news. This is the sort of contingency planning that goes on continuously. Obama isn't directing it or participating in it because, as clearly indicated by the administration's current military policies, he wouldn't know what to do if his life depended on it. Unfortunately, it doesn't.
Being hard on Hillary Clinton is misplaced scorn. She's merely implementing the policy as dictated by her boss, Barack Hussein Obama. That's where the scorn should be directed.
She is just costing us a lot of $$$$ running around the world accomplishing nothing. She could the same over the telephone Duh!!! That of course wouldn't put her fat face in the newspaper. She's just a publicity hound and and a waste !!!!!!
nancy. they are accomplishing many things perfectly in line with plans. they are murdering millions of non-white skinned people, they are eradicating millions of babies and children and what they call "useless eaters". they are stirring up global hatred of the USA by design to bring about their vision for the destruction of the USA (see the back of the dollar bill) so that Apollo can assume the throne and usher in massive population reduction and the new age of the divine species.
Nancy, you can replace Hillary with someone else, and the inept policy remains. That's because Obama is still calling the shots. Obama is the person that needs to be replaced.
the "scorn" should come in the form of a Declaration of Independence style revolution to throw these psychopaths our of our government immediately. But alas, the Phoenix shall rise from the ashes of the rubble of this nation to assume his role as the global dictator of the NWO – aka the temporary seat and throne of anti-christ. read hillary clinton's college thesis on Rules for Radicals and get a glimpse into the minds of these satanic freaks that are deriving great joy and pleasure in creating global chaos and murder of millions in the "name of peace". YahShua said, "in the last days they will say peace, peace when there is no peace" and they "will call evil good and good evil", and there will be wars and rumors of wars and nation will rise against nation and there will be wondrous signs in the heavens and the surging of the seas and earthquakes increasing in intensity. These are the throes of the pangs of birth. The entire purpose of the fedco of the USA is to bring about global chaos from which they will institute the final global dictatorial empire.
That photo of Hillery (killery)..? how would you like waking up each morning and seeing that face lying beside you in bed....
you honestly believe that obama is the perpetrator here? What!? Obama is a teleprompter reading puppet head.
ok greg. using that lame argument is akin to accepting the argument presented by so many nazi soldiers from the camps that said in their defense that they were simply "following orders."
Our government is a satanic mob of murderous fiends that need to be removed from DC post haste by We the People! It is our CIA along with MI6 are coordinating the murderers in Syria in order to make excuse for this illegal war, which is nothing more than ethnic cleansing and empire building for the NWO. The US government is an enemy of the world and our government needs to be eradicated in its present form and replaced with folks like Ron Paul. These people like Clinton, Obama, Cheney, Rumsfeld, our traitorous commanding officers, are all Domestic Enemies of our Republic and a Clear and Present danger to the world.
Wow you talk about overt insanity! Seek help.
dave. typical marxist response. no substance, just attack and name calling to marginalize me – kind of like all the msm brainwashed masses that parrot "conspiracy theory" to simply dismiss the fact that a third building (World Trade #7) was destroyed by our government on 9/1/1. as was said by an uncle jack character, "you can't handle the truth" so you seek to dismiss me as a self preservation move so you don't have to have your little false reality destroyed.
Your analysis is spot on. You will find no reasonable arguments because the truth cannot be argued without exposing the weakness of the lie.
OMG!!!!! I can't believe the hate and nastiness I am reading here!!! Look you neo-conjob, GOP bigots, Syria is a potential ally who needs our help getting rid of an evil dictator. We must help bring about peace and democracy. I'll bet that you political special olympians supported Bush when he carried out his stupid campaign in Iraq and Afghanistan. Well, don't forget who got Bin Landen... and IT WASN'T SOME BOZO NAMED BUSH! We must bring about world peace.
So you want us to do the same thing in Syria you were against us doing in Iraq under "Bozo Bush?"
@Gerri – did you support Bush when he overthrew Saddam?
"Syria is a potential ally who needs our help getting rid of an evil dictator."
Or are you just a hypocrite and only support military action when it is done by a Democrat?
Good read for you Geri – from Salon no less.
Thanks for the laugh, liberal. Your kind of hypocrisy is always funny. Now go clean the dishes and take out the trash like your mom said.
Obama didn't help Syria's partner in crime Iran when their people were uprising and we had the chance so what makes you think the muslim in the WH will now help the people of Syria!
Look Gerry how we now have "peace" in Lebanon and Egypt thanks to our beloved exalted one's involvement. They are torturing and murdering innocent people too. Maybe the United States should let this evil dictatorship exist until we figure out how the last three revolts in the Middle East are going to affect the 'peace' process. Maybe we should just invade Iran, eliminate all of the Imams, and make Obama president of Persia like he wanted in the first place. At least I understood a war for oil. A war to replace one dictator for another makes no sense to American foreign policy.
Well, don't forget who got Bin Landen
Is that the brother of Michael from 'Little House on the Prairie"
OBL died from liver failure in 2000. there is not one shred of evidence that OBL was killed by the SEALS that took part in a fabricated event. and interestingly enough, most of SEAL team 6 has been conveniently put in the "dead" category. obama is a nazi pig, as is george bush and his dad.
gerri – what proof do you have that Syria's elected leader is a evil dictator? oh, thats right, the NEWS tells you so. brilliant. also, who is more murderous, our federal government or the leader of Syria? has Assad signed a document such as the NDAA? has he murdered millions of civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa, Libya, Pakistan, etc.? Is he the one turning all of the non-white skinned world into a pile of debris? no, he is not. but our rogue government and traitorous military is.
Jeffrey Henry.....I'm with you on Bin Laden, however, he died in mid-December 2001 according to a FOX News article that sites the Pakistani Observer.
Everyone should go search for the article themselves:
FOX NEWS – Report: Bin Laden Already Dead – 12/26/2001
thanks sleeper. i know it was reported in various news agencies and testified by thatcher and a former cia head at the time, as well as by countless people in pakistan and elsewhere "over there". people have been programmed by the msm in the hegelian dialectic to respond by, "so you're saying bush knew this and did not use it to his advantage but they kept it secret to allow hussein obama to use it to his?" and the hysterically ironic truth is, the answer to that argument is a resounding "exactly".
the brainwashed masses are still under the delusion of us vs them in the two party political paradigm that has been expertly used to allow these nazi's to accomplish all they had; bush and obama are precisely the same, just different sides of the same coin and slightly different pigmentation.
death to tyrants and long live the Republic!
WOW THIS IS THE LIBERALS 'OTHER STALE ARGUEMENT'
THEY ARE ALL THE SAME -–DEMS AND REPUB ARE ALL THE SAME-THEY ALWAYS SAY THAT WHEN THEY KNOW THEIR GAME IS OVER..............

Ok Gerri, Miss Sweetness and nice, perhaps you can explain the difference, in detail, between what you would have us do in Syria and what was done in Afghanistan and Iraq. You speak of bringing peace and democracy, that was the intent in both of those countries and it is still an option there. It is not much of an option however in Egypt, Libya and a couple of other Arab Spring paradises. In Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood, that charming bunch of peaceniks, controls 75% of the parliament, in Libya no one even knows what the heII is going on, but you may bet it ain’t good as the peaceful and tolerant Iranians have their thumbprints on the throat of that entire region. Now you would have us enter the fray just in order that we may add Syria to the pot and see if it boils over in a froth of freedom and democracy. All this based on your assessment of Mr. Obamas Godlike ability to accomplish any task he tells you he can. If you believe that seditious serial liar you are a sorry excuse for an informed citizen. He roamed the halls of state government for two years, voting present and never even left a footprint on the carpet and all by design just so he would have no record to defend. How you people put any confidence in this administration is amazing in light of the fact that they could all be brought on RICO charges for starters. In any event your utter hypocrisy is your only consistency. One last thing, that killing of Bin Laden, well you know that was Bush’s fault, it really was, just like everything else. Rich in New Mexico.
FOOL US ONCE IN LIBYA, THEN TWICE IN EGYPT AND YOU STUPID LIBERALS – SYRIA AIN'T OUR PROBLEM – THEY ARE FOOLING YOU IDIOTS.............THEY KNOW THEY CAN DO ANYTHING UNDER DUMBOCRATS LIKE YOU GERI.............YOU BOYS DIDN'T WANT US TO TAKE A FIGHT TO THE MIDDLE EAST AFTER 3000 PEOPLE WERE SLAUGHTERED IN TWO HOURS IN NY BUT YOU WANT US TO WASTE SOME BLOOD PROTECTING THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD????? SEE WHY YOU BOYS ARE DONE........IT IS FUN TO WATCH IF YOU HADN'T DESTROYED SO MUCH OF OUR COUNTRY................I HAVE WAITED 40 YEARS FOR THE WORLD TO SEE THE IDIOTS IN THE DEMOCXRAT PARTY AND YOU BOYS HAVE SHOWED THEM ALL ROFL ROFL ROFL
So when they overthrow Assad, will the give Syria to al Qeada like they gave Libya to al Qaeda? This is a technique that will guarantee a long-term blood sacrifice by bot the victims and the agents of the perpetrators (western soldiers) for decades to come. Why are people so gullible. "Glass parking lots" is a phrase used by a duped fool who plays directly into his devil-worshipping masters' hands. In every case, you are less safe and who benefits?
we are way past alqaida – the muslim brotherhood will make them look like kindergarteners
catherine. i think you are probably a basically well meaning person trying to do the right things, however, as a professional member of the national media, i have to say that observing your posts clearly signals that you have bought into the msm propaganda hook, line and sinker. you probably have not traveled much internationally, much less lived anywhere other than the USA, and you watch and believe too entirely much of the MSM news and their propagandists. do you know for example that it is a fact that anderson cooper is CIA? most all of these folks are members of the CFR (and there is no difference between Fox and CNN with complicity to cover-ups). in egypt and among egyptians and throughout the middle east and those muslim nations of Africa, there has never been, until the CIA created it, an organization known as "the muslim brotherhood". go walk their streets and talk with them and ask them!!! the muslim brotherhood is a 100% commonly known fabrication of the US CIA.
i LOVE WHEN YOU BOYS START WITH THAT ARROGANT NASTY TALK
I WRITE FOR THE NATIONAL MEDIA TOO.................I have spent plenty of time behind the Iron Curtain in East Berlin before the wall came down – AS A VETERAN I TAKE REAL OFFENSE AT THE CRAP YOU LEFTNUTS SELL WITH YOUR CONDESCENING ATTITUDE
I have been in every Hitler death camp..................and how did they do it – kill millions of Jews – the MEDIA MADE THE NATION HATE THEM AND THEN MAKE THEN DISAPPEAR
just like the unemployed, Obama says they are lazy and too dumb in this intelligent work place to get jobs – and you MEDIA SELL THAT GARBAGE, IN 3 YEARS WE ALL GOT TOO DUMB TO WORK????? well like with the Jews – it works, peple think all the foreclosed people were scams and too dumb to read (TENS OF MILLIONS OF THEM) and only the really lazy can't find work (400,000 a week???)

Here we go again.
Leftists are no strangers to using violence to get their way. Consider the thinly veiled threats they've made against the peaceful Catholic church for daring to disobey an illegal dictate. Is there no end to this gangster mentality? Do we need to go to war every time someone fails to comply with our demands? Do we really need threats of violence as our only mechanism of persuasion?
I fear leftists far more than the Syrians.
I Fear the cat-holics who worship mary. It is there kind that killed all the "PEACEFUL" Baptists in the Dark Ages. You devil possessed liar don't you start with the "that was pagan rome." Any sinner who has been saved by the grace of God knows that the church of rome has never changed, she is still the old whore of Revelation 17. The ONLY WAY a sinner can have his spiritual eyes opened is by trusting the death, burial, and resurrection alone to save his soul from hell (Romans 10:9-13, Acts 20:21; 1Corinthians 15:1-5). There is no such place as purgatory, when you Christ rejecting sinners in the catholic church die you will see to it. Repent and Receive the LORD JESUS CHRIST by faith (Ephesians 2:8,9)
n my second book I have a whole page of liberals standing in the street with their various KILL BUSH SIGNS........they were oh so proud and they carried them and joked about it and wrote books and movies about it for YEARS – AND NOT ONE DEMOCRAT TOLD THEM TO SHUT UP -THEY WANTED TO KILL MY COMMANDER IN CHIEF – THAT IS REAL LEFTIES..........REAL MANIAC HATRED
– remember when Kerry and Dean and Pelosi and Reid and Biden and Obama were CALLING THE TEA PARTIERS – TERRORISTS??????????? and praising the freak Occupiers who destroyed every place they went, THOUSANDS OF ARRESTS WE HAD TO PAY FOR AND WE ARE BROKE, NOT A PEEP FROM THE LIBERALS AND MEDIA – NOT ONE DEMOCRAT CALLED THEM TERRORISTS EVEN WHEN THEY WERE RAPING.....................
I knew the media would ignore those signs so I plastered them in my book so people wouldn't forget – America put those creeps in charge of their futures.............and NOW WANT TO CHANGE BACK......................those boys are going to get really nasty this time, BUT THEY ARE OUTNUMBERED, 8 to 2...............AIN'T IT GRAND..............we are ready for their hate this time AND WE ARE GOING HATE BACK – ONLY WAY TO TAKE BACK THE NATION
REMEMBER THE WAR AGAINST HITLER, that is what 2012 will be like against every liberal media outlet in the land............WHEN CARTER WON ONLY 6 STATES TO REAGAN'S 44----THE MEDIA SWORE UP UNTIL MIDNIGHT OF THE ELECTION THAT CARTER WAS GOING TO WIN----–LIE LIE LIE LIE
COUNT ON IT HAPPENING AGAIN – but we elected 700 republicans to take over the states and we are cleaning up the elections DEMOCRATS ONLY WIN WHEN ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINAL INVADERS VOTE AND FRAUD...............WE ARE MAKING SURE IN MOST STATES (except the vicious most liberal) THAT THE ELECTION IS FAIR – THAT MEANS OBAMA LOSES
and pay attention , looking at the numbers, THE REAL NUMBERS, I don't see a democrat senator being re-elected either, there are 24 of them.....................heheheheheheeheheheeh
If you understand the elite's blood occultic sacrifices to their master Lucifer, you will understand the motives of these heinous murderers. It has nothing to do with the silly reasons they publicly espouse. They need to wash the earth with blood. Just like those before them and just like those coming after.
100% correct Enlightened. now check out the headline on drudge right now reminding us about Obama's Temple of Apollo stage design in 2008, then compare his speech in berlin with that of adolf hitler on the exact same day in history, and pay attention to the fact that b hussein was standing in view of the temple of apollo in berlin. now, connect that with the all seeing eye on the back of the dollar and notice the roman numeral date at the base of the pyramid, and use a magnifying glass to see the demon at the bottom left corner of the pyramid. the 13 levels of stones represent periods of time counting up to set the timeframe for their future events. the capstone is supposed to be set in place this year, and the "completion of the things this nation was established for" (george bush) is supposed to be in 2019 – a seven yr period of time.
Hillary Clinton IS the
Ugly American abroad.
She's pretty ugly wherever you look at her.
While obama guts our armed forces to pay for his neomarxist domestic policies he drags us into extralegal conflicts in which there is no u.s. strategic interest. so far, who has benefited? the u.s., our allies or the muslim brotherhood? all the while obama goes after the catholic church, our 2nd amendment right to bear arms and any state that tries to aid in the enforcement of our border controls. again, who benefits? Please enlighten me.
O.bomber had no problem supplying arms, bombs and big bucks to Libya. Egypt routed their dictator before we had to supply arms, bombs, but not before we gave big bucks. Hitlery announced big bucks heading to Egypt even while they are holding Americans against our will to support the 75% takeover by Islamic radicals vowing the destruction of Israel.. Hitlery is Imam Barrys delivery system. Yemen is moving along to Islamization with out our help also, but I'm sure there has been a pot full of money (borrowed & printed) going their way. The common denominator in the countries the Kenyan in Kontrol will support is the ones that aren't Sharia compliant yet. That's why he's leaving Syria and Iran alone. Those two countries are already where the Muslim Bro in the DC Hood wants ALL of the Middle East and N.Africa to be, Islamic Muslim controlled countries that will annihilate Israel.
Its too bad that Americans still think that there's a difference between Democrats and Republicans. Corporate agenda's start wars, not simpleton politicians. Do I really need to list which companies profit every time there is a conflict?! Someone warned you about this many, many years ago.
Don't mention the companies. But please do mention how I can sign up for that gravy train. I want to profit from war too!
If Dragon Lady Clinton is promoting war in Syria, she should send her daughter FIRST. That should put a stop to her war mongering !!!!!!!
Syria is not an important oil producing nation, Lybia was. Syria is not producing Nuclear weapons with threats to use them, Iran is. All three countries have populations that are/were protesting their government and yet, we've only supported Libya because of its vast Oil production capacity. We have yet to even suggest backing Iran's uprisings even though we have other interests which would make the fall of their government favorable. What would we gain from any action whatsoever in Syria over Iran at this time?
The point is, support of the uprisings in Syria is not very vital to US interests right now especially in light of the Obama Pentagon's (stupid) admission that we can only handle one war at a time right now. If Obama commits US military resources to Syria at this time, he should be impeached for negligence.
Obama is killing men, women and CHILDREN with drone strikes in Pakistan and Afganistan. Why don't we start by ending his atrocities! Where's the outrage?
Obama is the front puppet for the Machine of World Dominance , and they are changing governments, in the Middle East, one at a time. It's all about power, enslaving the citizenship of the world. The biggest fear is when they accomplish taking down the last threat , the USA . Gun Control, NDAA which eliminates warrant rights, drone authorization over USA territory with expectations of 30,000 drones in the USA air ways by 2020. With FEMA camps in place, and the Administration wanting their own private civilian army, it is all obvious.
We need to know who belongs to this Machine of World Dominance before we are no longer Free Men!!
It's okay though. Obama is a liberal and liberals would rather turn a blind eye to their own doing the exact same thing Bush did than say a word.
Obama extended the Patriot act and the Liberals remained quiet.
Obama signed the NDAA making it legal for you to go to jail for the rest of your life without trial and the liberal remained quiet.
Why they didn't attack us!
No Blood for Oil!
Not in my name!
Give Peace a Chance!
No more Illegal Wars!
Afghanistan is the
"What’s missing in our debate about Iraq - what has been missing since before the war began – is a discussion of the strategic consequences of Iraq and its dominance of our foreign policy," "This war distracts us from every threat that we face and so many opportunities we could seize. This war diminishes our security, our standing in the world, our military, our economy, and the resources that we need to confront the challenges of the 21st century. By any measure, our single-minded and open-ended focus on Iraq is not a sound strategy for keeping America safe."
and so on and so forth....
Amen brother! Amen!
Do you folks not know that the military has plans for everything. When something pops up that they don't have a plan for, they start planning, just in case. It's got nothing to do with what the civilian leaders will, or will not, decide to do. It's just planning. CNN is just doing their standard terrorist loving rabble rousing again. Can't you see through it yet? Geez
How about the UN sends in their band of blue helmeted hostages instead?
"Security Clearance"....lol. If CNN had any idea of what was really going on, they wouldn't ask such dumb questions or take the stances they do.
CNN covers up anything that would make a Democrat look "bad." Watch how they report on what a great commander in chief BO is.
IN all my years I've never seen an administration that lacks such basic common sense as this one. The MUSLIM SPRING, has finally bloomed into the Dawn of the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD taking over the middles east, as a means to an end for the MUSLIM AGENDA of world domination, and it's first goal is to destroy Israel, and then the USA. Meanwhile, our President and his Administration are doing all they can to help the MB, and some say they actually think the MUSLIMS will love us for it in the end. HOW BRAIN DEAD CAN ANY ONE BE?
Sometimes when you think that you have made something idiot prof, God makes a better idiot.
Who is this "some" you refer to as thinking the Muslim Brotherhood will love us? It always bothers me when blanket statements are made, without sources cited or names assigned to references. If in fact what you say is true, I would like to read this for myself, in an attributed article, not a thread comment, as you have no more credibility than do I. It appears to me that the US must always be prepared for military action, if such is required, but so far, this is not our fight.
When did this idiot blog of comments become a scholarly work requiring citations and a bibliography? Get a life. Demand those things from your global warming friends.
What?????? You mean the Nobel Peace Prize winning president is going to start another war?????
I guess the liberals are OK with wars and killing people as long as there's a democrat ordering it. Hypocrites.
I bet ole Billy C is scared to death of Hillary, Boy this picture on Drudge scares me, I bet when she gets mad, she can be another serial killer.
Waiting to retaliate is a losing hand in this nuclear age.
Nice. A Democrat President can go to war without justification whenever he feels like it - Yugoslavia, Libya, Syria - no questions asked, no problem. A Republican President has to get Congressional approval, UN approval, then gets crucified anyways. Liberal hypocrites.
That is so very true. Let's hope the Republican nominee uses this fact when voting time is here.
Nope....this election will be all about ambiguous ideas/platitudes like "fair share" and 1% garbage. Hopefully the independent feelers will have a little more of a clue this round and get a grip on reality.
There is a reason that the Demonrats are KNOWN for starting wars, and Republicnas ending them! the demonrats love to help out, but cannot fight to win, just meddle. The REpuclicans fight to win them! But, this administration, and Hillary especially is full of herself. She got lucky once! now she thinks she is a viking Queen, she will step in it big time and watchout when that happens, she will cut and run. But not before our kids pay the price.
Hillary needs to be our leader, she has what no one in the GOP or Obama has in experience and tenure. Hill should become the VP as soon as practical and Obama needs to resign due to illness or a Nixon type thing. This will finally give the GOP the get even thing they need to allow congress to work together under a leader now Hillary to get us out of debt and back to being hte America we knew. Think that strange? Look back into Clinton history and how people moved on and they moved in....
Where is Code pink, where is Cindy Sheehan? Where is the Liberal outrage that our nobel peace Prize guy is setting up for another war?? If there was a Republican or Libertarian in the WH there would be howls from the left about war and blood spilling in the streets. What hypocrisy!! Morning Joe and Mica Bobblehead would be leaking in their pants. What kind of future does this country have....leave the Arabs alone and let them handle their own affairs
Cindy Sheehan has been silenced, marginlized, and put on the back shelf because now her message is not wanted by the Demoncrats.She is against the war and the Dems have move over to a fascist war rule. She is not needed anymore. Its here too in the USA, the patriots act, NDAA, look at all the street corners with the cameras. they are not setup for our protection but are there to send tickets to us through the mail and then there are smart meters, to charge us and control our power usage. Ben Franklin said – When you sacrifice Liberty for security you get neither. Wake Up folks -Google "Agenda 21"
I listen to the GOP guys ranting about nuking Iran and I'm sure they would be just as inclined as the Dems to go into Syria. After all, munition companies are big campaign donors are they not?
Aw man, we're out of Iraq, winding down in Afghanistan, Libya is over, and Obama wants another war to get us into. Must be so he can be viewed as the Great Military Leader when in fact he's an idiot, has failed in his job and deserved to be kicked out of office right now!
What about Mexico? Let the Middle-east take care of it
self and send our troops into Mexico to take over the drugtrade.
Eric Holder has that all taken care of, under the table of course, because that's the "Chicago Way".
This is not our problem, as I feel for the perople of Syria, the U.S. has got to stop being the Police of the world. Let other countries deal with it. We are too broke.
Hillary hates the military but loves to use the military.
Pres. Obama and his wife are no different. Did you hear Michelle says she wouldn't mind seeing her daughters enter the military. LIke that is going to actually happen! The Dems continued their assault on the military when a few soldiers were caught torturing prisoners in that Iraq prison. Nothing has changed. As you said the Dems like to use the military, but not participate.
It really is heartwrenching to watch the atrocities, but it's the same old thing. We go in and save their sorry butts, our boys (and girls) get killed and maimed doing it. And In six months they're burning the U.S. flags and telling us to get the h_ll out of their country. Send them arms and let them hash it out themselves.
No doubt any military action will be handled by Obama in the most incompetent way imaginable. Think of a policy mix of the indecision and weak leadership of Libya, with the Islamic Brotherhood disaster of Egypt, with the cut and run of Iraq when it gets tough and the lefties start whining.

I am so tired of the war and fear and terrorism control tactics. Bring the troops home, they deserve to live with their families , protect our borders, and rebuild our nation. Lead by example in the world, not by a military presence. Allow countries and people to go through their trials and evolution to be greater countries or to dissolve. I personally am sick of looking at the world like its our duty to police and spread democracy. Look at the big picture, we are but a second in the context of history and we as a nation have still to prove our worth over time and success. ( We are not doing a good job of that right now ) I say let them all hash it out and in the end if Israel has to defend itself from the Arabs they have been squeezing off their land .....Good luck to ya . That's all this positioning is about anyway.
Best. Comment. All. Year.
I'm going to have to agree with this sentiment as well. These folks have been at war or invovled in some form of unrest for thousands of years. We need to get out of their business and let them hash this out for themselves. I totally agree.
Excellent commentary. I agree
No doubt!! That should be the way it should be. If they all want to argue and fight over there let them. Unfortunate for the children of course as they are the ones who will suffer their ignorant elders over there in the end to the children in sorrow.
I for one agree. Get our people The Hell out Of There!!!
Problem is, instead of learning by our example, all we wind up with is a bunch of lefties, full of envy who only want to tear us down instead of build their own country up in imitation. The left always thinks in terms of tearing DOWN the successful instead of working themselves to build up themselves in imitation.
Our only choice then is Ron Paul. Romney, Newt and Rick will keep this Police State going, well, at least till we go broke, which is already here. We are in trouble financially and how we can continue this Police state scam all over world any longer amazes me. Bring the troops home and send some of them to the Border. Obama will allow us to go to war w Iran so we can go to war w Russia and China and bring an end to the USA and the dollar. That will bring in Marshall Law and he will suspend the elections until the crisis is over. Or another option – His 'birther" issue which now has 16 lawsuits in different states and he is in Contempt of court for not showing up in Georgia. If this gets out he wont be allowed to run for another term – what then "A mess", but i can hear Hillary high heels marching in the background
I am very much in support for Ron Paul. I have weighed and supported aspects of other candidates and once or twice even the Presidents views. I hold myself to a standard of non partisan, open minded inquisition into topics and ideals to find what resonates as truth, strength and admirable qualities in each one. Ron Paul has filled those shoes. I find that it is usually, above all else, his foreign policy that is laughed at and discounted. My previous post is the essence of his foreign policy. So moving on from there there is little if anything that I can find or hear that is discrediting or "crazy" about this mans vision for our country or the decades of unwavering dedication to our principles and foundations. I wish him the best of luck and if not this year perhaps his son will restore us our dignity in the future.
I think Hillary needs to get laid. I'm sure it's been a while, all this aggression on her face tells me she's menopausal and ignored at home...Any wonder why?
I'll bet two bags aren't enough for Bill to service her. Yecchhh!
How about we leave things alone for a change and let the Syrians do each other in as they see fit. It's an internal matter that requires no interference, just like Ruwanda.
Were not these the people that partied and danced in the street during 911? Were not these the people who supported the Pan Am air disaster tragedy? Not so fun now when the tables are turned; hmm? Leave them alone; to eat their own; it’s Karma at work.
This article is nothing but pure speculation and is a waste of bandwidth. The Pentagon gets paid to formulate military solutions and Syria is surely only one of many such projects. Maybe Hillary should sent the 16,000 embassy personnel in Baghdad to Syria to work on the problem. They certainly aren't getting anything done in Iraq.
So what, we're going to help overthrow Assad so that the Muslim Brotherhood can take over here too?
Smart, real smart.
Obama's plan is working. The Muslim Brotherhood is taking hold little by little. Just like we said in 2008, he is a muslim.
GOD DECIDES and it will be very soon
You believe or not does not matter because it will happen
The Northern Army (Russia, China, Iran, Turkey, All the Arab Countries)
And its Allies Will Punish The English Speaking World & Israel
Eat with your left hand Dom....
Take a page from the cunning Asians and let's put OUR interests first. Unless we're going to get first bid on some killer oil deposits, let's leave this one alone.
I agree! Too bad Obama's party screwed up American Oil companies from getting first bid in Iraq! Those contracts went to Asia who didn't even spill blood there!
Our interests should come first. If it sets people free to govern themselves in the process, that's just a bonus.
You know, I was just saying this the other day, too... What America -really- needs right now is another foreign war in the middle east with either vague, or preferably, no objectives at all.
You took the words right out of my mouth.......
What the He!! are these fools thinking... granted, the situation in Syria is getting (has gotten) completely crazy, but it is THEIR business, NOT OURS. When will the United States learn to stay out of other nations affairs.
If we were to choose to intervene in a place where there are atrocities going on every day of the year (and has been for the last few years) why don't we try to do something about the Boko-Harem group that is operating in North Africa, or do something about the open piracy going on in North Africa that is a total menace to shipping...?
Oh yeah..... it's of no strategic/monetary value. Having Iran getting involved in the Syria mess leaves Iraq in a VERY bad spot....
I truly hope that someone with some sanity in the White House or some other high-level position decides to speak up and knock some sense into the people thinking about getting into yet another war... I, for one am disgusted with my governments actions, it HAS to stop.... immediately if not sooner... A bad scene that we don't need to get involved with on ANY level at all. The guy in Syria needs to 'cut the crap' and we need to 'butt out'...... 'nuff said...!!!!!
I'm just being an armchair QB here and should keep my mouth shut about the whole situation.
Please remove the photo of the Hillabeast. It's not what you want to see first thing in the morning.
Aren't the Syrians ..ARAB? As bad as this guy is, Isn't it best left to the ARAB LEAGUE...to fix their OWN ARAB situation. Where are the Turks and the Europeans? Why should AMERICANS be the ones to have to stop this brutal dictator? Since Russia and China have their OWN $$$ interests at heart, give their rebels weapons and let them fight for their OWN independence...HEY OBIEWANOBAMA!!! HELL NO...NO Americans at risk for this cause.
The military serves a function. That function is to protect our freedom and help those throughout the world that seek freedom. Fighting wars. (Although I admit that Congress has a real bad habit for starting something they can't finish at the expense of a lot of good people.) That is your job description when you join the military. It's NOT sacking groceries or some other job that doesn't involve risk. That's what you sign up for, that is what you should expect. If the "doves" of this country don't want your kids to be involved in this most commendable cause, then you need to figure out one of two things: either agree to nuclear weapons being used in every confrontation or how to keep your kid from wanting to join the military! Remember, the military is an ALL VOLUNTEER military. No one sticks a gun to your head, there is no draft. It's volunteer.
Isn't it time we let foreign nations clean up their own messes as long as it doesn't threaten our own security? As to the military 'bagging groceries', I think we have more than enough work for them on our own home ground. Protecting our 3,000 miles of southern borders would be a solid start. I don't worry that our military won't have things to do; I worry that Obama will have so weakened our capabilities that we are unable to control the all out effort to infiltrate this country.
This is a no brainer. Stay the hell out of the Middle East. If the situation is not bothering the neighboring Arab countries then we need to stay out. We have our own problems. If they block the Straight then blow all of their ships out of the water. But that should be it.
"U.S. Central Command have begun a preliminary internal review of U.S. military capabilities..." Really? And we're supposed to believe that that's just now starting to happen! Give us a break out here. This is eye wash for public consumption. The Obama administration will have to do something to turn the circus goers attention away from the failing economy.
Most likely this has been planned long before just like the Iraq war.
I love Republican men best. In syria there are only arabs they don't like people like me. So let's hope the army can come in and fix the situation.
I am not a big supporter of Israel but.. a nuclear Iran is not an option. When a nation calls for the total destruction of another and is controlled by religion, that is not a country that has the stability or sanity to possess nuclear materials. The problem is, there are far worse things than nukes such as biological weapons that could be used by many nations.
I wish as a planet we could all chill out, sit down and solve the problems like adults and leaders rather than like war pigs. Those that don't want a peaceful negotiated solutions don't deserve a place on this planet. There is plenty of blame to go around on all sides and the place to start is at the negotiating table.
Everybody has to give a little to get a little. We all want the same thing – life, liberty and a new Harley Davidson.
I agree with you. The problem is history. Its terribly difficult to come to the negotiation table with men who raped your wife and daughters before cutting their throats.
As idealistic as a global kumbaya would be, total annihilation seems more likely that reconciliation. I'm also rather confident that all governments involved find it more to their benefit to remain in a constant state of unrest and that a decisive victory is of little value to them.
For Once I saw a very interesting comment. Carrying lots of logic good well and strong initiative to make the world better place to be. We have been living in hill with dictators who have no mercy and no control. We need would love to have world peace as Ray said built on trust foundation and equality. Enough of wars the world resources is enough for every one if we can be satisfied with what we have. We just need a free spirit to lead the world.
Iran DOES NOT HAVE nuclear weapons – with ONLY FEAR being used as a pretext to involve us in another war, we can now view the spectacle of how Hillary Clinton follows Madonna: Both would allow the nation's demise for their own profit, and the New World Order's rise for consumption of the elite. In a total welfare state, all second amendment rights will have become STOLEN, unless otherwise given to them by the POLICE STATE. Continue to prepare for the assault from the syncopated DEAF AMERICAN MAINSTREAM'S DEAFENING N.W.O. MANTRA: WAR FOR PROFIT !!! WAR FOR BUSINESS !!!
I got a used, but not much, Honda Shadow. Will that due? 🙂
You aren't really a supporter of Israel, but you are. You think the world is safe with these Israeli idiots with several hundred atomic weapons? These people are behind the world's wars, have been for generations. The world is not a safer place with an atomic Israel. Get your head straight and stop playing games.
Everyone is waiting for Obama to make a decision. Gee, that's going to take awhile. It's sure fortunate that Assad isn't killing anyone. Or rather that he's "only" killed more than 6,000 people already.
OK Rock. You've said your piece. Of shit I might add. Anyways,this could be the best time for me to say that I like guys. Hope that doesn't freak y'all out too much. But I do. Guys rock and girls suck. Toodleoo now!
I've got a great military option for the US against syeeria. Bomb the fuck out of it. BOOM! The cruise missiles roll in by the dozen then if that doesn't take care of president Asshead we can think about nukies. Fucking Ayrabs. We never should have gone near their stinking cameldung infested landscapes in the first place.
Cruise missles? All the military has left after our "leader" decided to gut the military are pea shooters and squirt guns. Ali Bama certainly knows how to do things the right way and since he hates the military, like most liberals, he has found a way to gut it even more – put in to combat with fewer arms, planes, and ships. Brilliant, just brilliant.
OK, Drudge...we're still trying to figure out why you have a pic of Hillary Clinton linked to this article????
There wasn't even a mention of here in the piece...
Give Obozo another marshmallow gun & Hillary a Michael Dukakis tank helmet & they're ready for about as much combat as either one has ever seen...
"here" = "her"
I was just wondering the same thing, why blast Hillary on top og Drudge when she isn't in the article!!!!!??????!!!
Maybe she's at the top of the article to remind us of just how BAD she looks. Quick, someone get that bitch a makeover!
Hillary Clinton, the leftist shrike who used to “loath the US military” and the free world hating leftist chanzir who would like to see America destroyed, now, all of a sudden, are portraying themselves as avenging angels who just love to “help” an oppressed people with the use of the US armed forces for whom now they have the greatest respect and admiration. Imagine, bingo, just like that.
Wait, it’s an election year!! Gee, stupid me- nearly forgot!
Nearly forgot: why would we help oppressed people who hate us? And also: don't forget the historical foundation for all of the shit in the Middle East clearly was created by the politico-religious lies of the still not quite defunct fascist Roman Empire of Rome (which still lives on in the Roman invention of Christianity and its various successors), the Turkish Emirate and most of all the various European nations with the English and French as major actors. Also, we should not forget the strong ties the Nazis had with the erstwhile Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. However, in more recent times and right up to the present: we have seen and still see the devious policies of our Russian "friends" at work, who will do anything to stir up the pot as long as it creates shit and chaos in the free world.
So I guess that Syria is at a crossroads?
send thunder thighs over,, that will scare the 8 immam out of their arses..
It will be Bush's fault anyway!!!!!!
Hah! And you libtards thought bush was a war monger!
Believable.... very believable.
So...who cares what the F**k happens in this 3rd world rat hole?
Does anybody really give a tinkers damn about what goescon in that 3rd world rat hole? Geeeeezzzzz. Send in a Seal team to knock off what his face...come home and let them sort it out.
seals are the biggest joke of any world military outfit. they can't find their heads in their own asses.
And how many years of combat do you have under your belt, missy?
That's what we thought...another Liberal Chicken Hawk..."All hat...no cattle"...ask your mommy what that means...
Why send in the SEALS or anyone else if it is none of our business-and I agree it is none of our business? There will be civil wars and they are just that-civil wars -none of our business. Secretary Clinton and the US Government ran their mouths and inflamed the Arab street thus making North Africa safe for the Arab Brotherhood and jihadist everywhere. Now our former anti-war activist is chomping at the bit to send other people's sons to die on foreign fields.
When will this nonsense end?
There is no way the Obama Administration is going to war with Syria. Obama doesn't have the guts and he doesn't want to piss of the Arabs. He had to be dragged kicking and screaming by the Brits and French into the expedition to liberate Libya. Once again he will vote "Present." He hasn't said a damn thing about the Americans being held for trial in Egypt. And what has he done to the Iranians for their pusuit of nuclear weapons? He has stood on the sidelines and left it up to the United Nations.
Who do I root for in this war? Who wears the white hat? err the white tablecloth?
THE ARAB SPRING CHICKEN A POEM BY HENRY GIBSON
the tyrants heart is weak and about to fail
One man's riot is another man's bake sale
Guns into Syria ,apples to the cafeteria
go to war,ban sugar in school
are moral equivalents and election year tools.
what the spokesperson says ain't close to the truth
we will fluoridate Assad and exterminate the rotten tooth.
fat little kids and hard Navy Seals
make good photo ops ,with lots of appeal
poll numbers down ,what will raise them more
banning all ice cream or starting a war
we'll poll test our options,but while we all wait
let's go after the Catholics or a red border state
Way cool poem...and, ain't it so? It sure is.
Could someone please explain why the great Obama, winner of the Peace Prize, would put our men in harms way for the sake of Syrian issues? Look folks, I don't remember signing up to expending our blood and treasure playing police force to the world.
Let them work it out on their own, and let's get on with solving our own problems – which, in case you haven't noticed, are that we are in a depression with no sound fundamentals for a real recovery. Our Rulers are spending 1.6 TRILLION a YEAR more than taking in, and raising taxes ain't the solution. Stopping spending on frivilous wars is the solution, and Oboinga needs to get a clue. Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn what happens in Syria.
your 100 years behind and that's why you don't understand what they are doing. the train has left the station for you my friend.
to cut off Iran's cat's paw, you dumbass
So the Arab Spring began in December 2010 and then the Occupy Wall Street Movemant started in September 2011. then why not let the snotty nose OWS folks go and fight Obama and Hillary's war in Syria? Just a thought!
you are an American? and you are on the wrong side? your comment should say to put all the congressman in the war. why would you want to put anyone else. your congress is sending them there; nobody else. no not obama... its congress. they wont stop him. its all congress.
Lord Haw Haw is abusing his freedom of speech and is bi-polar. He need to see a doctor and take medicine.
The war is already in prcess econ sanctions on IRAN + Israel WILL unilateraaly strike the nuke sites for a week or two. US has already pulled 2 heavy armored brigades out of west germany with more to follow under guise of base closing. Where do u think they are headed? Hezbollah will be unleashed with asytmetric warfare in Lebanon kuwait bahrain, Iraq, + assorted other gulf states when Israel strikes.The upheaval in SYRIA is not only internal but external as well,Hezbollah is not the only org capable of asymetric warfare. Israel will at the same time as they strike IRAN must neutralize hezbollah in Lebanon. SYRIA supplis + support to hezbollah must be crushed + that game has already started. The US will knock out SYRIA inthe next few months to cut off that snakehead letting ISRAEL crush Hezbollah below the golan hts + Beirut so that flank is protected while they bomb iranian nuke sites + other targets. US will double down on IRAN with supporting airstrikes from land + sea. Likely US ground forces in syria + lebanon to quicly secure that sector with Israel thus isolating IRAN + eaving them with their revolutionary guards + proxies to slug it out with special ops throughout the region. Once crushed then IRAN faced with internal uprising to oust the regime + negotiate end to nuclear ambitions so that crippling sanctions are lifted. EGYPT is isolated + sits still for the time being as SYRIA + IRAN are dealt with. ISRAEL will hit IRAN O definely would not do it without dealing with hezbollah Lebanon first or at the same time. WE the US know this + the game is in the first Quarter
You leave out North Korea, China, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela et al, who are all waiting for us to open fire so they can descend upon us.
That is all well thought out, and probably somebody like you presented it to the Peace Prize recipient. I know US special forces were already moved from Iraq to the border of Jordan with Syria, that happened a month ago.
But...no battle plan survives contact with the enemy. For all that to work, Iran has to cooperate by being 100% predictable and by being 100% stupid. I think they have an ace up their sleeve and plan to sink one of our carriers as a punishing blow.
And yet, what do we get for this? What, our Saudi masters snap their fingers and we come running taking fire to be their private bodyguards? Please. How about this: drill baby drill, and run that damned pipeline. I am sick of fighting wars over oil in the desert where they wipe their butts with their left hand.
Does anyone believe that this new engagement is for the sake of the Syrian People? Could it be that our Hoaxer in Chief aka the Mysery Man is doing his diversion to thwart investigation and stop his credentials from being exposed? You can bet your sweet bippy it could be.
Wag The Dog, baby! Just keep them watching the illusion, while the other hand moves unfettered. All a standard ploy. Ya think Obama wants to face up the Fast and Furious, where he put 1200 guns directly into drug gangs hands in order to trump up a false pretense for more gun control? No, he is dirty, as dirty as anyone ever. Even NIxon only shut down an AC causing people to sweat. Obama's little machinations have caused people to die, our own people at that.
We are ready to go to war with Syria, but are compliant with Iran and its nuclear ambitions. The latter poses a threat to Americans on our native soil. The former is a civil war agitated by the "Arab Spring." After betraying our long term allies in the Middle East, we now see the entire region moving toward Sharia Law and power being centralized by jihadists. Well done.
I agree completely!
Let her daughter lead the way accompanied by the children and grand-children of every politician and supporter oin DC both parties so that they can be grunts in another territorial, tribal and religious disagreement in the armpit of the world
I concue Let Joe Plugs biden's kids lead the way
that's funny.. those places are no longer the armpit of the world dude... America is the armpit of the world.. lol
Only after Hillery send her daughter , Obama send his Daughters and every politician in DC sends their children and grand0children as grunts not officres over there to participate in another series of tribal, religious and territorial squabbles.
What's up with Hillary's hair? She's looking unusually sever these days.
Hey Hillery. They are letting women into combat. How about your lazy daughter taking point on my patrol....Bhahahahahah
how bout she take point on my dick
WOW That scan of Mrs ":H" just sent me to the basement! All hell will fall with that scan talking for us. Poor Bill. I guess he will be looking for another young intern.
Bill and Hillary Clinton should be in prison for crimes against humanity for what they did to their fellow citizens at Waco, TX, on April 19, 1993. The Waco Massacre and church burning (it was a church, not a “compound”), was the most brutal, heinous violation of civil, human and Constitutional rights in this nation's history. Innocent men, women and children were attacked with tanks, poison gas (CS gas turns to cyanide when heated) and burned alive. Those who ran from the church were machine-gunned as documented in the movie "Waco, The Rules of Engagement." If you doubt how bad this was consider that you never hear the left stream media talk about it. They want it erased from history but this memorial site will remain forever: http://www.wizardsofaz.com/waco/waco2.html
And if that weren't bad enough, Clinton's thugs then stuck a machine gun in the face of a 5 year old boy and sent him to the communist gulag known as Cuba: http://www.therealcuba.com/elian_gonzalez.htm
Let's hope Clinton isn't teaching President Prompter too many of his old tricks!
Move forward my friend. god will take care of the Clinton's for the plast. Remember Mario Puzo's forward to "The Godfather?". " Behind every succesful man iss an illegal act.".
They should have had plans on the table for all of this lst year.
Read that. This is a farce and a lie. This government is out of control.
Let's just all sit back ad watch. Holocaust all over again.
Why do we need to do a whole military review? Just find out if Seal Team 6 is out of bed. . . . . . .
This will be no cakewalk. A lot of SEALS will probably die. Needless and pathetic. This is not good for anyone. Especially us. We're broke and more stupid than ever to pull this game.
Actually – this action is right on target. The U.S., along with the global banking cartel is working to crash the world economy. This plays into the plan. It's simple.
seals are pussies
My God! That photo of Hillary on Drudge is the most frightening thing I've seen in a while.
LOL, that's how I got here, too. Wonder what she's "jammin" to???
If anyone should be considered a "terrorist" it should be that demoniac in a dress.
