It is important for the American people to at least partially understand how corrupt politics and the federal government are. The Machiavellian machinations taking place away from voice recorders and prying eyes go unaddressed, but they nonetheless exist.
What if his pretense of going to war without congressional input and/or approval was just that — a pretense? If you’re now asking, “Why pretend?” the answer would be so Boehner, McCain, and the other feckless, so-called leadership on both sides of the aisle can get what they want. Both Democrats and Republicans (more so the Republicans) can boast to their constituents that they prevented Obama from skirting congressional authority which makes them look good especially with the 2014 elections just around the corner. It also allows the media to continue to overlook that Obama has ignored Constitutional boundaries since he first took office by his subversion and abuse of Executive Orders. He didn’t seek congressional input to invade and depose Libya’s Muammar Qaddafi. He went to them after the fact and essentially told them what they were to think about it.
I do not expect everyone to agree with me, but when you understand how corrupt the government system is, nothing is too corrupt to put beyond them.
The bottom line is, no matter how Obama, congress, and the media try to spin it there is no summum bonum associated with Obama’s obsession to depose Assad. Unless, of course, one believes that allowing the rise of a state governed by sharia law is same. Or unless one believes that placing Syria in the hands of vicious and condemnable Muslim terrorists meets the criteria for summum bonum.
Syria is not our enemy as such. I have Syrian friends and colleagues both here and in Syria who are telling me exactly what I’m saying pursuant to what the fall of Assad to radical terrorist Muslims will result in.
It is important to not be swayed by a retired military officer posing as a talking head on some news program. We must keep in mind that in all likelihood that officer was nothing more than a uniform with decoration on its chest earned because they were Carter, Clinton, and/or Obama sycophants.
We do not send our men and women to die just so Obama can fulfill some maniacal scheme to allow for the spread of Islamic terrorism.
I say if congress wants to depose a lurid dictator who fancies himself a demigod let them begin at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
