Nothing about the overwhelming evidence that the chemical attacks were indeed caused by the rebels? Why is Reuters interested in promoting widespread death by the American war machine led by Obama?

Obama does not lead the American war machine–Valerie Jarrett and her band of merry nimrods does. Obama simply does what Valerie says.

The Obama administration doesn’t seem to understand that after 5 plus years of lying and obstructing justice they have zero credibility. They just can’t be trusted.

Ghost…because they are the mouthpiece for his terroristic regime…this is only supported but by a mere 9% of the American public but Obama is a dictator and doesn’t care for the republic. However, he is supported by the Godless liberal media like Reuters who lets him get away with it.

“Activists said rockets loaded with poison-gas killed hundreds of people in rebel-held areas outside Damascus, many of them children, on August21. The Syrian government blames rebels fighting to topple Assad for the attack, but Washington says its intelligence shows Assad’s forces were responsible.”

What intelligence, the whole U.S administration has none, other than a burning desire to ‘BJ’ a Saudi Prince or two.

Our ambassador called and no one answered. When your house is on fire you call the fire department, if the fire is out when they get there that good. When the battle started no one knew how long it would last but no help was started so no help came and four died. Now we are told that gas used is more important then lives of Americans. We do not know what he will do if we strike. We can expect him to react as a madman and that means we cannot predict what or when the end will come. Obama and his statements of a red line really means he is willing to make a blood line of American blood to keep from losing face. Impeachment is in order if he strikes and does not get approval. His own statements made before he became president can be used to impeach him. Let them settle the civil war and we can deal with the winner later.

The Administration claims to know exactly when the chemical laden missiles were fired but can’t explain the Benghazi fiasco other than to blame some poor slob with a sub par IQ as the culprit. So, what are we supposed to believe?

Lets just spell out what is starting to be ‘alleged’ and is going to be levelled at some of the elite… (American missiles killing further Syrians or not!)

The potential framing of a sovereign govt, by manipulation of transnational terrorist groups and fighters, to carry out a heinous act on your own political part.

Can things get any greater (or graver) in overall seriousness?

If Obama goes ahead with this without Congressional approval he should be impeached and arrested and brought up on war crimes charges. Put him in Gitmo with his brother terrorists because that is what he would be/is. If congress approves this, vote every single one of the out of office….enough is enough.

Attack On Syria Is About Saving Face, Not U.S.

“Back in 2007, when candidate Obama was courting the Democratic Party’s peacenik base, he told the Boston Globe that “The president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat.”

“President Obama has apparently experienced an “attack route to Damascus” conversion to George W. Bush-style cowboy diplomacy, wagging not the dog but a skunk that reeks of political face-saving.”
