Obama’s big anti-war moment that won him the backing of the left.
Where are those WMD’s, the left clamored for 9 years. Well they might just be about to find out.
U.S. and allied intelligence have detected Syrian movement of chemical weapons components in recent days, a senior U.S. defence official said Monday, as the Obama administration again warned the Assad regime against using them.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, in Prague for meetings with Czech officials, reiterated President Barack Obama’s declaration that Syrian action on chemical weapons was a “red line” for the United States that would prompt action.
“We have made our views very clear: This is a red line for the United States,” Clinton told reporters. “I’m not going to telegraph in any specifics what we would do in the event of credible evidence that the Assad regime has resorted to using chemical weapons against their own people. But suffice it to say, we are certainly planning to take action if that eventuality were to occur.”
Can you spot what’s missing from the story that was and is present in every news story on Iraqi or Iranian WMDs?
1. No “experts” stepping forward to question the “intelligence” about the presence of WMD.
2. No news reports on anti-war protesters gathering to protest against a war on Syria, even though they exist.
3. No questions about whether we should route this through the United Nations
When Democrats want to go to war, it’s very simple. They announce that they’re going to war. Or they go to war, then say three days later that there is no war, just a No Fly Zone, as Obama did during his disastrous Libyan expedition.
President Barack Obama, in a speech at the National Defense University on Monday, pointedly warned Syrian President Bashar Assad not to use his arsenal.
“Today I want to make it absolutely clear to Assad and those under his command: The world is watching,” Obama said. “The use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. And if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons, there will be consequences and you will be held accountable.”
Meanwhile Obama’s Islamist buddies in Turkey have used chemical weapons against the Kurds without being held accountable for it. The Sudanese butcher Bashir has carried out genocide in Sudan and Obama has made it clear that he will not use force there.
But Obama only intervenes for regime change on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood’s territorial ambitions.
Exit question. How much of Bashar’s WMDs stocks come from the Iraqi WMDs that Obama and his left-wing buddies insisted don’t exist?By Daniel Greenfield
