Remember the explosion of pitchforks and torches, brandished by an infuriated, leftist mob over George W. Bush’s handling of Iraq? The screeching from the lap-dog media and politicians that spun in the wind of public sentiment, as to whether they were for or against U.S. military action, was incessant. Now, The Lyin’ King has waggled his flaccid fist at Syria. He is in the process of committing the United States to unilateral military action. No consent from Congress. No U.N. authorization. Ah, how quickly libs forget. Or, rather, how quickly they expect the rest of us to.
The Lyin’ King’s Secretary of State declared that there is “undeniable evidence” that Bashar al-Assad used weapons of mass destruction on his own people. No evidence for this assertion has been offered by the regime. Weapons of mass destruction? Haven’t we been to this rodeo before? The left still flagellates Bush for alleging “non-existent” weapons of mass destruction as the basis for an “illegal” war. Except that it wasn’t illegal. Both houses of Congress and the U.N. passed resolutions in favor of the act. Aerial photographs of Soviet trucks shifting cargo from Iraq into Syria were widely circulated at that time. Could those deliveries to Syria have been the same weapons of mass destruction that John Kerry denied existence of back then? Yet insists on now?
The U.K. Independent points out that by taking up the cudgel against Bashar al-Assad, The Lyin’ King is joining forces with al-Qaeda against a common enemy: “The men who destroyed so many thousands on 9/11 will then be fighting alongside the very nation whose innocents they so cruelly murdered almost exactly 12 years ago. Quite an achievement for Obama…This, of course, will not be trumpeted by the Pentagon or the White House – nor, I suppose, by al-Qa’ida – though they are both trying to destroy Bashar. So are the Nusra front, one of al-Qa’ida’s affiliates.” It won’t be trumpeted by the MSM either. The MSM won’t ask “if attacking Iraq was so wrong, why is attacking Syria right? What is it The Liar-In-Chief stands to gain?”
Instead of furious denouncements and insistence upon years more fact finding heaped upon George Bush by the U.N. they are now pleading with The Lyin’ King to hold off on taking any action… for four more days. According to The Weekly Standard, the U.N. doesn’t know who-did-what-to-whom-with-what and they are begging for a few more days to find out. Then, presumably, the Nobel Peace Prize recipient–In-Chief will be free to inflict whatever damage he can with our truncated military might. If one has never considered the question before, now might be a really good time to ask “why is America is still funding the United Nations?” They haven’t had a democratic majority in decades yet America is still the United Nations’ largest contributor. What the U.N. clearly expects from America is our real estate, money, acceptance of their abuse and for us to take over military activity anywhere they can’t keep the peace…which is everywhere.
The Lyin’ King’s Arab Spring has become the winter of the world’s discontent. As liberals always do, The Lyin’ King waves a loaded gun around trying to look tough. Now he’s stuck with his “red-line” threat against the al-Assad regime in Syria. Despite a slavish media, frantically trying to extricate his feet from his mouth, The Lyin’ King is on stage, front and center. And it isn’t just a PC-whipped America that is monitoring the action.
The Lyin’ King is being carefully observed on the world stage, by enemies and friends alike. And he is openly joining our enemy. The world’s onlookers don’t care about his historic presidency, his easily-bruised ego or what color he is. They just want to see how far The Great Satan can now be pushed.
Right off the edge of the cliff, apparently.
