As of this writing, President Barack Hussein Obama had not delivered his much-touted address to America regarding his and Secretary of State’s John Kerry’s itch to launch an “unbelievably small”Â bombing assault on Syria, an unbelievablyÂ insignificant, secular Muslim nation which has never attacked our country and which never even had the audacity to threaten us prior to Obama’s threats.
Â Our waffling leader,Â who has managed over the course of four and a halfÂ short years to undermine his and America’s credibility andÂ reputation among both our allies and enemies with his indecisiveness and hesitation over critical issues, will most probably blame everyone from George W. Bush to the GOP in general to Syria’s Bashar al-Assad to evil gremlins for his murderous Syrian itch since they obviously caused this non-crisis and he was regrettably saddled with the responsibility of resolving the mess.
The key to understanding Obama’s ultimate decision on Syria and hisÂ impending explanationÂ to his fellow Americans can beÂ detected in his recent speech at the G20 Summit in Russia.Â ThereÂ heÂ stated that our congressmen and womenÂ should listen to theirÂ constituents, 97% of whom opposeÂ any Syrian intervention,Â butÂ then they shouldÂ vote independently and ignore the people who elected themÂ so that they make a decision that’s â€œright for America,â€Â in the opinion ofÂ our failed president.
Obama also elaborated in Russia that, â€œI do consider it part of my job to help make the case and to explain to the American people exactly why I think this is the right thing to do.Â Itâ€™s conceivable that at the end of the day, I donâ€™t persuade a majority of the American people that itâ€™s the right thing to do and then each member of Congress is gonna have to decide, if I think itâ€™s the right thing to do for Americaâ€™s national security and the worldâ€™s national security, then how do I vote?â€ (http://tinyurl.com/n8vc2cx)
The most significant feature of Obama’s speech at the G20 summit was his apparently deliberate omission of any reference as to just how Bashar al-Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria imperils “Americaâ€™s national security and the worldâ€™s national security,” an omission caused by the reality that neither contention is defensible.
Perhaps Bashar al-Assad will now employ poison gas against Israel?Â Perhaps he will attack Poland with mustard gas?Â Perhaps he will try to competeÂ with Syrian “rebels” by murdering more Christians than they do?
Â Or, perhaps Obama is more interested in stirring upÂ a war hysteria in order to distract Americans from Benghazi and NSA snooping, from his foreign policy debacles, from his gross mishandling of our economy,Â and from his black racist administration of justice?
