Obama’s “Coalition of the UNWILLING” in Syria

In the New York Times today 8/30/13:

“Mr. Obama has made clear that this initiative would come from the United States, and that while he welcomed international participation, he was not depending on foreign forces for what would essentially be an operation CONDUCTED LARGELY BY THE UNITED STATES, from naval vessels off the Syrian coast.”

Obama in 2012 in comments to the press:

“For us to take military action unilaterally (in Syria), as some have suggested…..I think is a mistake.”

So what is SRT’s “Word of the Day”?:

Duplicitous: n  , pl -ties — deception; double-dealing


Saddam’s weapons went to Syria?

Wonder if this will make the mainstream news….in an election year, no doubt?

From the Jerusalem Post:

An upcoming joint US-Israel report on the September 6 IAF strike on a Syrian facility will claim that former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein transferred weapons of mass destruction to the country, Channel 2 stated Monday.

Furthermore, according to a report leaked to the TV channel, Syria has arrested 10 intelligence officials following the assassination of Hizbullah terror chief Imad Mughniyeh.

This almost sounds too good to be true….and not much written in the article, but……

If this is true and gets traction, what does this do to the Bush-Deranged infested left whose mantra is “Bush Lied, People Died”?  

Where does this leave the two left-leaning anti-war, pro-Palestinan, anti-Israel Presidential candidates on the topic of the war in Iraq?

And what of Nancy Pelosi, the “clean the House” speaker who visited Syria’s Bashar Assad against the wishes of President George Bush and against US Foreign Policy?  What would she have to say for herself?

Hopefully, we will see more of this report in the news soon.   While I wouldn’t expect the left to absorb any of the report as fact, it will be another “stick in the eye” for those who didn’t think Saddam was a threat and who are adamently opposed to WINNING the war in Iraq.
