Like many Americans and others across the globe, I have been paying very close attention to the news of the day and particularly the situation in Syria. I have been very torn on this issue because I do care about innocent men, women and children being murdered. Though I do care about that and it is heart breaking, I have this overwhelming bad feeling about this whole matter, call it a gut feeling, whatever, but while I do care, I am opposed to what President Obama and his administration have proposed. I am not even very happy about Russia taking the lead in fixing the situation. It just doesn’t pass the smell test, none of it does.
It was all I could do to wait this out and not post on it, but I wanted to wait until I fully understood why I feel the way I do. I asked myself some very important questions, which made me look up the things that came to mind that led me to this opinion, making sure that my memory served me correctly. I listened to the Senate hearings and I listened to the President. I did all that I could to make sure I fully understood what I could that led to this point and what made me feel ill at ease on this situation.
Now it is time to make my case on this issue and others that are rather intertwined with this one. I will start with the WMD’s (Weapons Of Mass Destruction). The media and the government would have us believe that Syria has just been collecting them over time and maybe they have, but, we do have to consider the source of these weapons that they possess. Back in 2006, an explanation was given as to what happened to Sadam Hussein’s WMD’s, because we all knew he did have them. He did the same thing Syria is doing. He practiced on his own people. No one believed the following explanation back then, but today, I believe it makes a lot of sense.
Just in case you are a bit apprehensive in believing General Sada……..Take a look at the following article, which quotes James Clapper, Director Of National Intelligence in the Obama Administration and others, that maintain the exact same thing. The WMD’s or chemical weapons were, in fact, moved to Syria before the US invaded Iraq in 2003.
Iraq Chemical Weapons Moved To Syria
I found yet another article siting many sources on the very same subject, saying exactly the same thing. This article even states that it is a myth that Sadam’s WMD’s did not exist. In my opinion that means that all of the people who have repeatedly called George W. Bush a liar on the subject and called that faulty intelligence, that Sadam possessed the weapons, know the truth and they are the ones lying about it, or they have kept their heads in the sand on this issue.
Syrian Chemical Weapons
Most in the media and the government will not admit to that. To me it is very plain to see that is exactly what happened. We have to also remember that Sadam knew we were coming for some time, so the element of surprise was gone and he had plenty of time to clean things up. Do you remember the following “hot mic” moment?
Are we being played here? Somehow, I think we are. I know that the explanation for the “hot mic” incident was that it was about the arms treaty, or missile defense, something to that effect, but I wonder if that was what it was really about. What was President Obama going to be able to have more “flexibility” on after his re-election and how did he know he would be re-elected?
I never warmed up to the President’s idea of just casually dropping a few bombs, whenever, to scare someone into submission. Even more hair-raising was the idea that he and his administration were giving so much warning that we were coming. Not that it hasn’t been done before, which, I believe explains Sadam’s stash going to Damascus in the first place. It is just not a smart way to do things in regards to war. I will say that on this particular instance, I think the American people did need to know about it.
I am not surprised that Russia, Iran and China are against us, nor am I surprised that the United Nations is against us on this issue. These are the biggest four enablers of rogue countries, terrorism and bad behavior on the planet. They don’t even stop at just enabling. Some of them even supply the weapons and they know who they are and so do we. None of them really have our best interests at heart. They never did!
On the other hand, President Obama and his administration have gone around the world to be weak and confusing about his intentions. Which makes us question the facts of the matter, because he has even been quoted as saying they did not have definitive proof that Assad was actually the one who used those weapons. Why would you trust people who are known to be untrustworthy? (on either side of this issue)
So now we have come to the issue of trust. I don’t trust the UN, Russia, Iran or China, but I don’t trust the Obama Administration either. We have to remember that this is the same administration that has armed rebels against other governments, that wound up empowering our staunchest enemies and we shouldn’t have been involved in the first place. This is also the same administration that is responsible for Fast & Furious, Benghazi, the IRS Scandal, the NSA Scandal, Seal Team Six, The Affordable Health Care Act (aka, Obamacare), investing our money into worthless companies, giving us no choice, attacking our energy sources (coal, oil and natural gas industries) and refusing to lead us to energy independence, driving prices through the roof and making it harder for families to make ends meet. I could go on and on, but the truth is that this administration is destroying this country and is responsible for more bumbling, murder and mayhem than any other in history. President Obama is the worst president in US history, just as those in Congress that share his agenda are also some of the worst leaders in our history.
At this point I am sure someone is saying, but he got bin Laden! He didn’t do that. He just gave the okay and watched it in real-time on video. Seal Team 6 did that, based on intelligence that was years in the making and then his administration betrayed them. We also have to remember that the person and his family that gave us the latest intel on bin Laden’s whereabouts, was left in Pakistan, by this administration and the man’s identity was exposed to the world. In case you are unfamiliar with the story of Seal Team 6, take a look at the following link.
Who Betrayed Seal Team 6?
That is not how you treat heroes. Just like every other scandal or debacle, this administration has done its best to cover this up. How can we trust leadership that claims to care about the innocent in another country, when they do not even care about their own people? They don’t even have a record of caring about those who were the most loyal to them, from the Seal Team 6 members to those killed in Benghazi, even our soldiers that have been killed by the Taliban that President Obama released from Guantanamo Bay (the ones he felt we needed to make as partners in peace in Afghanistan)? How can you trust leadership that calls the Fort Hood Massacre “work place violence”, when it was clearly an act of terrorism? How can you trust leadership that ignores repeated warnings from Russia about a family that was clearly trouble, resulting in the Boston Marathon bombing?
Investigating the Boston Bombing
Nothing this administration touches is working out in the best interests of our country. How can we trust them on anything they say, when everything they tell us is a lie? How can we trust them when they are living the high life and everything they touch is disastrous? Do you trust them? I don’t even trust those that side with them, no matter which side of the aisle they are on.
