As President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry work up a fervor to get congressional backing for an attack upon the Syrian government, Syrian rebels, members of recognized terrorist organizations [like Muslim Brotherhood that Obama supports] demonstrate how ineffective or incompetent our intelligence system has become. It is also a good example of how US foreign policy requires a drastic makeover and to stop interfering with foreign national governments and politics. It appears that the Syrian rebel forces have declared that it was they who unleashed the chemical weapons that killed people in Syria.
If someone would sit down and examine the history of Islamic fanaticism, they would find that the Muslim Brotherhood began as the Wahhabi in Saudi Arabia and helped shape what has become organized religious fanaticism and terrorism whose agenda is conquest. It has become a tradition that Saudi leadership support the Muslim Brotherhood.
If accurate, this story could completely derail the United States’ rush to attack Syria which has been founded on the “undeniable” justification that Assad was behind the chemical weapons attack. Dale Gavlak’s credibility is very impressive. He has been a Middle East correspondent for the Associated Press for two decades and has also worked for National Public Radio (NPR) and written articles for BBC News. … Saudi Arabia’s alleged role in providing rebels, whom they have vehemently backed at every turn, with chemical weapons, is no surprise given the revelations earlier this week that the Saudis threatened Russia with terror attacks at next year’s Winter Olympics in Sochi unless they abandoned support for the Syrian President. … The Obama administration is set to present its intelligence findings today in an effort prove that Assad’s forces were behind last week’s attack, despite American officials admitting to the New York Times that there is no “smoking gun” that directly links President Assad to the attack.
Obama degraded GW Bush policy concerning the decision to attack Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq claiming that intelligence been faulty and that the Bush administration was not honest with Congress when it asked for permission to begin the Iraq war. As usual, Democrats demonstrate their knack for hypocrisy by performing acts they accuse political opponents.
Which means that the consensus must be true: the Obama is supporting the wrong side of Islamic conflict.
Just as the corruption has been revealed throughout the over-sized and intrusive federal government, denied by Obama, this too will be overlooked. Some wonder if all of it is a means to sidetrack from the myriad of scandals that have surfaced since the beginning of his checkered history as President of the United States. Voters were warned in the 2008 election with proof of Obama’s association with corrupt individuals and organizations in his private and political life – but it was more important that he be the first “Black” president. Just as ethnicity was what put him in office, it is the same for those who seek to bring charges of impeachment against the Obama administration.
When it comes down to the hard wire, Syria’s problem is not a matter of US national security. If those we elected had planned and implemented the concept of US self-sufficiency when it comes to natural resources, specifically crude oil – except for protecting Israel, the entire region can kill each other off.
This time, unlike Libya, Obama is seeking approval from Congress to take action in Syria; however, knowing Obama this will be a move to blame Congress [like he blamed Republicans for national budget problems] for taking no action – after Obama had claimed a red line not to be crossed when it came to Syria. It is a ploy for Obama to opt out without taking responsibility.
During the course of this violence in the Middle East, Christians have been tortured and murdered and historic churches have been burned and pillaged. Yet, the Obama administration did not express any concern until chemical weapons were used against general populace in Syria.
The Arabic Islamic culture is a medieval culture that exists in the 21st century, using modern technology but with a mindset trapped in the Middle Ages. Indeed, just as the first Crusade began, Islamic thirst for conquest and implementing Sharia law by the sword; so a modern version of the Crusades may be on the horizon. Global conquest was their agenda then, and in that respect, it has not changed within the Islamic leadership. In the meantime, they fight against themselves because of the myriad of sects within the religion of Islam that has developed over the centuries since Mohammed founded the religion and his successors swept across the Arabian world conquering the oldest trade center and gateway between East and West, Istanbul [Constantinople] and as far west as Spain in Europe.
While there are Muslims who wish to live in peace; there are far too many who seek global conquest, and in free nations demand tolerance when they provide none in return. In that respect, it is about time to do away with political correctness and worrying about offending people that have no respect for others and their beliefs.
The Islamic jihad extremists have abused the tolerance of western nations in respect to freedom of religion, and it is about time that We the People of the United States and Europe demand that Muslims be tolerant and live in peace or go back to their war-torn nations of origin.
The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States does not provide the right to be intolerant while expecting others to be tolerant; nor does it advocate or tolerate any religion whose doctrine is hate and violence with no respect for other citizens’ rights.
Truthfully, the Islamic jihad and Sharia movement is subversive and thus provides the right of the authorities of the United States government and respective state governments to take action to stop this subversive, invisible invasion of a nation who was first to establish freedom of religion and speech.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. … A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
Ecclesiastes 3, King James Bible
Our leadership have lost the wisdom in to know when acts of war are required and acts of others require stern measures. Apparently it is easy to send another citizen’s child to war that has no warrant other than the ability of US leadership to implement US power and create policy that interferes with other nations’ internal affairs. We can encourage, make our nation a role model once again, and we can implement diplomatic policy and trade sanctions to punish despots and tyrants – but it is time to end sending our military forces to clean up another nation’s mess. Members of the US armed forces all swear an oath of allegiance to and protection of the Constitution of the United States and protect against enemies of the United States. If our embassies are attacked and Americans killed in foreign lands, this indeed are acts of war and require immediate and decisive action; if a foreign government does not take action when an embassy, US property and/or citizens are endangered or murdered.
When the leadership of the United States draws a line in the sand and someone crosses it – we must hold true to words of caution if they are not heeded. Otherwise, the United States should only be concerned with encouraging peaceful coexistence, and trade that benefits all parties concerned.
That is what the Founders believed and implemented, and only went to war when it was necessary and the last resort. A good example would be Thomas Jefferson and the Barbary Pirates. We need to implement the wisdom passed to us by the Founders, instead of falsely believing that wisdom can become outdated. Wisdom should never be considered outdated, as in the following example:
God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.
The Serenity Prayer
I try to remember those words as I fight to have the constitutional republic returned to its original status and ideology that the Framers of the Constitution of United States and the Founders of our nation intended; especially when I become wayward the American society has become, viewing values and ethics as ‘old school’.
