Do you remember the liberal mantra “there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?” They are suspiciously silent right now as Obama is about to launch military strikes against Syria’s Assad. But, let’s assume there are WMD in Syria. Having researched this, I believe that to be the case.
That brings up some very serious questions.
First…Where did Syria get them?
Remember how the left jeered at the idea that weapons of mass destruction were moved FROM Iraq TO Syria? Even though there were satellite images clearly showing caravans of heavy trucks moving SOMETHING out of Iraq and across the border into Syria.
Now, that there are chemical weapons being used in Syria, that brings up the second dire question.
Who is using them?
Yesterday, Obama trotted out the Vietnam war traitor, John Kerry, to tell us all “What is before us today is real, and it is compelling.” Kerry added, “Our sense of basic humanity is offended not only by this cowardly crime but also by the cynical attempt to cover it up.”
Well, John Kerry should never use the words ‘cover up’ when working for an administration that successfully covered up Fast and Furious and is actively covering up Benghazi. To John Kerry I say that I am offended by the cowardly crime of four dead Americans being covered up. Sorry, I digressed.
Back to Kerry stating that evidence was “clear” and “undeniable” that the Syrian regime had used chemical agents. What Kerry chose not to do was tell anybody what is that “clear and undeniable” evidence. That’s the problem with this administration. It is full of good speech makers that don’t saying anything of substance.
Assad says it wasn’t him. It wasn’t his military using gas to attack anyone and called it “absurd” that chemical weapons would be used by his regime when his military was active in the area of the attacks. He stated, “Would any state use chemical or any other weapons of mass destruction in a place where its own forces are concentrated? That would go against elementary logic.”
My final two questions are, “if Assad is using chemical weapons, why would he allow the U.N. inspectors to access the areas where the attacks took place?” and given the fact that Assad did allow those inspectors in yesterday, “who exactly fired upon those inspectors? The area is held by the rebels and there would be no reason for Assad to even attempt to deter inspectors that could clear him. Think about it.
And, think about this – Obama wanted Gaddafi out. Gaddafi was replaced in Libya by al-Qaeda. Obama wanted Mubarak out. Mubarak was replaced by the Muslim Brotherhood. Now, he wants Assad out. Who are the rebels? Al-Qaeda and Ansar al-Sharia.
This chemical WMD attack is the provocation Obama needs to launch military attacks against Assad to assist the Syrian “rebels” in their quest to oust Assad from power and replace him. Isn’t it strange that Obama dithered on Syria while 100,000 people have been killed with guns and mortars but now it’s a “moral obscenity” for 366 people to die at the hands of chemical weapons?
