So this is how we decide military action under Obama’s leadership.

White House officials cautioned that Obama was still considering the options, but the administration appeared positioned to act quickly once he chooses a course. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said during a visit to Brunei that the Pentagon was prepared to strike targets in Syria and hinted that such a move could come within days.

Some experts said U.S. warships and submarines in the eastern Mediterranean could fire cruise missiles at Syrian targets as early as Thursday night, beginning a campaign that could last two or three nights. Obama leaves next Tuesday for a four day trip to Sweden and Russia, which strongly supports Assad’s government, for the G-20 economic summit.

One U.S. official who has been briefed on the options on Syria said he believed the White House would seek a level of intensity “just muscular enough not to get mocked” but not so devastating that it would prompt a response from Syrian allies Iran and Russia.


Uh, how in the world does “not being mocked” support the national security of the United States? I mean that is the reason for our military, the main job of our Commander in Chief.

When it comes down to it Obama has stupidly backed himself into a corner with all his “red line” crap months ago. Now that the French believe Assad has crossed that line everyone is waiting for Obama to follow through.

And now he doesn’t want to, excuse my french, look like a pussy in front of the world.

Smart diplomacy in the Obama age I suppose.

And the thing is I doubt Assad was behind this chemical attack at all. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the rebels. They are the only ones who have anything to gain from this attack.

But I’m guessing with a cabinet composed of National Security Adviser Rice and CIA Director Brennan it’s a bit difficult to put all the pieces to the puzzle together. Not exactly a brain trust there.

Right now al-Qaeda in Syria are being killed….that IS in the interest of our national security so just stay out of it.
