Are we headed towards WWIII? Part 2

August 27, 2013

 All of this talk about Bashar al-Assad using chemical weapons against his own people last week sounded eerily familiar to me–it seemed like we have heard this before. And the reason why it sounded familiar to me is because it was just over a month ago when we heard a similar report about Bashar Assad.

  Back in July it was reported that he used chemical weapons on his own people and it was also reported that as part of Barack Obama’s response the United States would support the rebels (al-Qaeda) by supplying them with weapons. (In reality, Barack Obama was already covertly supplying the rebels in Syria by running guns captured in Libya though the consulate in Benghazi which led to the deaths of Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith, and Tyrone Woods.)

  When this story broke on July 16th of this year I wrote a post entitled ‘Are we headed towards WWIII‘, and now I think it is time to revisit this possibility.

  Russia and China have now aligned themselves with Syria, condemning any intervention on the part of the United States, Great Britain, and France as being too hasty for there is the possibility that the Syrian rebels used the chemical weapons to draw the United States into the conflict on their side, and now Iran and Syria are threatening to attack Israel if the United States intervenes in the Syrian civil war.

  Barack Obama is promising that the United States’s response will be limited, it is being reported we will fire missiles into Syria and possibly conduct air attacks for a three day period, but if Russia, China, and Iran do enter the conflict I do not see how this can be anything but yet another protracted war with no possible outcome beneficial to the United States. And what if the Egyptian and Libyan rebels are able to mount a counter attack in Syria?

  Barack Obama has a history of supporting al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood–both terrorist organizations–in their various struggles against the leadership in Libya, Syria, and Egypt and because of this the situation in the Middle East has hit its boiling point.

  On one side we have the United States, Great Britain, France, Israel (if they are attacked) and possibly Australia while on the other side we have Syria, Russia, China, Iran, and possibly the terrorist rebels in Egypt and Libya which Barack Obama helped to gain a foothold in their respective countries. 

  Meanwhile, we have Republican war mongers, such as John McCain and others, criticizing Barack Obama because they want him to go even further. Have they learned nothing from more than a decade of war in the Middle East? I certainly have!

  I do not see this ending well, and I certainly do not see this being a short and limited conflict and we have Barack Obama’s Middle East policy to thank for it. The war drums are beating and it seems as if we may be on the verge of WWIII. I am very worried about this situation to say the least and I hope that all Americans are paying attention to what is happening in the Middle East.

  And on a side note, didn’t Barack Obama win the Nobel Peace Prize, and didn’t he promise to earn it in his acceptance speech?

    there certainly are elements among the powers that be (TPTB) who would like to ssee us in another protracted war. I just don’t think Obama has the stomach for it. He drew his red line for political reasons and thought that surely Assad would not be so stupid to do something that would ensure that the US and NATO would react. Was the use of chemical weapons real? Was it staged? If so by whom? My guess, and I hope I am right, the US and NATO will do some strategic bombing for a few days or weeks and then Obama will announce “mission accomplished”. How could anyone prove otherwise. Then the rebels and the Assad regime will be on more equal footing interms of armaments and the fighting can continue for years and years.

    I hope my crystal ball isn’t lying to me. It’s happened many times before. 🙂

      I hope you are right about this, but I do not have a great feeling about this whole situation, as you can tell.

    Of course our opinions are based on anecdotal evidence since we can only offer that the past bumbling and fumbling by Obama and his handlers are a result of perceived political expediency. His motives are suspect in this affair as in anything he has his hands in. It is not beyond him to “lob a few” in order to save face after making his stupid declaration last year. At this point in time believing their is irrefutable evidence that Assad is the party responsible for chemical weapons is no saner than believing in Santa Claus. At the worst we could get involved in a mother protracted middle east conflict, at best the price at the pump reaches that coveted $5,00+ per gallon that these socialist pigs have been day dreaming about since the newly elected Clinton’s declared we don’t pay enough for gasoline back in 1993.

      I couldn’t agree more! We do not know, no matter what Kerry says, that it was actually Assad who used these weapons. I do not trust Obama at all and I think he has ulterior motives here. I hope I am making more out of this than needs be, but I have a very bad feeling about this.

    If we are lucky he will bomb an aspirin factory similar to what Clinton did. Otherwise it’s about Obama and his redline.

      A slight show of force to fool everybody because he foolishly drew that red line in the sand? I suppose it is possible but I think there is something more to this.

        Agree. Every dictator who needs a distraction from the perils of his regime finds war appealing. This should fit the bill.

    The blow back from an attack on Syrian could be catastrophic for us. Assad will retaliate.
    What do we do when one of the ships is blown up by Assad? Are we prepared to witness the execution of downed pilot? What do we do when Americans are targeted in foreign countries by Assad? We need to write to our worthless members of Congress and demand they vote not to authorize the use of force against Syria.

      I agree, this man is stronger than Obama might want to admit and if we do this he is sure to retaliate. Obama is going to do this without the Congress under the War Powers Act, just like he did in Libya. The Congress is useless at this point.

    Obama will do what the UN tells him to do. He’s made that pretty clear.

    Even the squiggly British PM is meeting with Parliament to discuss options. If we had a real congress they would call Obama’s one man rule grounds for impeachment but since there is no red line or line in the sand for doing so both houses are MIA since while preoccupied with more pressing matters like giving in on raising the debt ceiling. The only thing our senate is missing is the horse. P.S. as far as missing in action where is the once anointed Saint Rubio, the Miami ice cream vendor turned senator who was going to bring balls and sanity to the republicans? Saviors ain’t what they used to be….

    Well at least some are on record as opposing BO. Where are the rest?

    Just perhaps Obama wants Israel to get the brunt of retaliation; I believe he would be happy to see the Muslims reclaim Jerusalem! I think Obama will do whatever his Saudi king pays him to do!
