When We Read The Headlines, This Tune Should Be PLAYING -
MR OBAMA STOP THIS – NO MORE WAR
“We regret to inform you that some of our former co-workers are telling us, categorically, that contrary to the claims of your administration, the most reliable intelligence shows that Bashar al-Assad was NOT responsible for the chemical incident that killed and injured Syrian civilians on August 21, and that British intelligence officials also know this. In writing this brief report, we choose to assume that you have not been fully informed because your advisers decided to afford you the opportunity for what is commonly known as ‘plausible denial.’We have been down this road before – with President George W. Bush, to whom we addressed our first VIPS memorandum immediately after Colin Powell’s Feb. 5, 2003 U.N. speech, in which he peddled fraudulent ‘intelligence’ to support attacking Iraq. Then, also, we chose to give President Bush the benefit of the doubt, thinking he was being misled – or, at the least, very poorly advised.”
HELLOOOOOO Mr. Obama ARE YOU LISTENING ?
BREAKING: President Obama Will Be Giving 6 Interviews Monday To Attempt To Make The Case For America To Go To War With Syria
President Obama is attempting to garner public and Congressional support on an issue that is practically a non-starter. Most Americans and citizens of the world disagree with the United States military striking Syria.
President Barack Obama will give interviews Monday to ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, CNN and Fox, according to a White House pool report, as he seeks to persuade Congress to approve a U.S. military strike against Syria.
The interviews will be taped in the afternoon and appear in the evening on those channels, per the pool report.
Earlier Saturday, Obama made pressed his case in the White House weekly address, promising that the mission in Syria would not turn into another Iraq or Afghanistan. He vowed that the strikes would be limited and that Bashar al-Assad’s regime must be punished for using chemical weapons to murder his own people.
“We cannot turn a blind eye to images like the ones we’ve seen out of Syria,” he said. “Failing to respond to this outrageous attack would increase the risk that chemical weapons could be used again; that they would fall into the hands of terrorists who might use them against us, and it would send a horrible signal to other nations that there would be no consequences for their use of these weapons. All of which would pose a serious threat to our national security.”
Mr Obama it seems You’ve become a warmonger. They say the company you keep will rub off on you; so this must be the proof from that puddin sadly.
somehow we thought Mr Obama would be a cooler head, but we’ve watched him over the past term and now in this term; and he’s supported war when there was another choice. We can only stand by and scratch our heads wondering why. That is the sad state of affairs now. Tonight (09/09/13) Mr Obama will go on nationwide television to try to make his case for war, with the american people. Most of america has already spoken loudly and said NO.
Mr Obama Can’t You Hear Your Own Citizens?
“The geopolitics of Syria affect everything from oil to Iran to Israel to the defense budget—and those concerns might be what’s really driving the push to war. But the public sales pitch for war cannot dare admit that because such a truth is taboo. Thus, the warmongers are trying to appeal to our sense of self-worth. They assume that we are so narcissistic that it will be easy to build support for killing other people with long-distance bombs, as long as most Americans aren’t asked to sacrifice at all with higher taxes or casualties, and as long as all the ensuing carnage makes Americans feel like good, decent, moral people.”

And Mr.Obama for the record you are not the only one discussing the Syrian political emergency. Everyone Is. You just need to open your channels to those outside your War Room.
Check this out Mr.Obama in case you need another point of view -
“The United States says that it wants to bomb Syria to punish the Assad regime for its use of chemical weapons. But keep in mind that it will likely use Tomahawk missiles, whose warheads might or might not be tipped with depleted uranium (DU). In other words, the United States will punish the Assad regime’s alleged use of chemical weapons by bombing Syria with a weapon that the UN General Assembly has four times asked to be sanctioned (but cannot because of the votes against these resolutions from France, Israel, the United Kingdom, and the United States). One hundred and fifty-five countries worry that depleted uranium will contaminate groundwater and produce environmental and health hazards for generations. The United States used such weapons in Iraq, where a 2010 study (Cancer, Infant Mortality and Birth Sex-Ratio in Fallujah, Iraq 2005-2009) found that the rate of heart defects was thirteen times that in Europe, the nervous system abnormalities at birth were thirty-three times that in Europe, and the childhood cancer rate was twelve times greater than those before the use of DU in Fallujah in 2004. These are the consequences of an imperialist bombardment. It will violate law in order to pretend to uphold law. It will use dangerous chemicals to protest the use of dangerous chemicals. It will get self-righteous about chemical weapons, such as nerve gas, that it sold to the Assad government within the past three years.”

Now can you imagine that ? your support of the decision to stand aside and watch instead of act means supporting more death ? how much deeper can this situation get ? We really don’t want to see it get any deeper so a more humanitarian solution needs to be found and quickly.
Let those who want to spend the money in congress and rhe house go along with any other legislators who support the decision to bomb syria GO TO SYRIA PERSONALLY AND DO THE JOB THEMSELVES.
YES, We Mean Exactly That…
We suggest that if said lawmakers feel the need to fortify their defensive prowess; might we suggest this group of women – The Gulabi Gang from India. They whoop ass and don’t take any backtalk.
This is basically what the US Posturing is about, so why not get some folks who understand how to do the job; to show them how to do it properly. These women are the most effective control unit in their part of India where women have been victimized for decades; until these freedom fighters formed up.
The Gulabi Gang was founded in 2006 by Sampat Pal Devi, a mother of five and former government health worker (as well as a former child bride), as a response to widespread domestic abuse and other violence against women.Gulabis visit abusive husbands and beat them up with laathis (bamboo sticks) unless they stop abusing their wives. In 2008, they stormed an electricity office in Banda district and forced officials to turn back the power they had cut in order to extract bribes. They have also stopped child marriages and protested dowry and female illiteracy.
Clearly these are some serious soldiers. they are not about that bs. I believe that if there were chapters in the major cities in India – quite possibly the gang rapes would stop. These are the soldiers that the world needs now – Mothers willing to do the child raising.
If These women trained the women of Syria to Whoop Ass and then went to the Syrian People willing to support their self rule; theres’ no way the US or any other governmental military agency would have to do anything.
These Mr President Are Women – and They ALWAYS Mean Business
Senators voting Wednesday to authorize a Syria strike received, on average, 83 percent more campaign financing from defense contractors than lawmakers voting against war, according to an analysis of campaign finance data.
Senators voting Wednesday to authorize a Syria strike received, on average, 83 percent more campaign financing from defense contractors than lawmakers voting against war.
Overall, political action committees and employees from defense and intelligence firms such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing, United Technologies, Honeywell International, and others ponied up $1,006,887 to the 17 members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee who voted yes or no on the authorization Wednesday, according to an analysis by Maplight, the Berkeley-based nonprofit that performed the inquiry at WIRED’s request.
Committee members who voted to authorize what the resolution called a “limited” strike averaged $72,850 in defense campaign financing from the pot. Committee members who voted against the resolution averaged $39,770, according to the data.
The authorization must be approved by the full Senate and House.
Among other things, the deal sets a 60-day engagement limit, and bars U.S. ground troops from combat missions. The plan essentially is the legal basis to authorize President Barack Obama to punish Syria for allegedly using chemical weapons, killing some 1,400 people as part of its ongoing civil war.
The top three defense-campaign earners who voted “yes” were Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) at $176,000; Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) at $127,350; and Sen. Timothy Kaine (D-Virginia) at $101,025.

The top three defense-campaign earners who voted “no” were Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyoming) at $86,500; Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) at $62,790; and Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Connecticut) at $59,250.
Americans widely oppose launching missile strikes against the Syrian government for its alleged use of chemical weapons, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll that finds little appetite for military action across the country despite a growing drumbeat in Washington.
Nearly six in 10 oppose missile strikes in light of the U.S. government’s determination that Syria used chemical weapons against its own people. Democrats and Republicans alike oppose strikes by double digit margins, and there is deep opposition among every political and demographic group in the survey. Political independents are among the most clearly opposed, with 66 percent saying they are against military action.
The public expresses even wider opposition to arming Syrian rebels, which President Obama authorized in June. Fully seven in 10 oppose arming rebels, including large majorities of Democrats, Republicans and independents.
There is not a single sector of the population—broken down by age, gender, political affiliation, education, income or region of the country—that supports war. It is significant, however, that opposition to war is higher among poorer Americans than among the wealthy (63 percent opposition among those earning under $50,000, compared to 51 percent among those earning more than $100,000). Young people are more opposed than older Americans (65 percent among 18-39 year olds, compared to 55 percent among those 65 or older).
I’m tryna have a chill ass deployment next year. Don’t do this, Mr. Obama.
We are getting increasingly more sick of your shit, Barry. Enough is enough.
We Think that the President is thinking like a stockholder, instead of like a person. This is why we can now all invest in munitions stocks and get rich than a fuk on his play-hawk move.
No WE don’t agree with any of it. If they want to just spend money that America doesn’t have, why not just it simple and send Big Dick Cheney and let him water board Dr. Assad.
Then HBO can get all partner-ish with Don King and put it on Pay Per View. We guarantee a healthy profit for all investors. That’s what a smart entrepreneur would do. At the end of the water boarding segment, we could let Dick Cheney decide; who could then pull the trigger on a gigantic shark cage to eat the remains. oooooooooooo„, sounds like a full season of action with a global subscription base.
We as the people are asking you to think before you take any action Mr. Obama
Knowing that this is a difficult decision for you to make President Obama, we think you need to sit down at the kitchen table with your women folk; and talk this plan out.
We believe from what we’ve seen of them – they’d vote Buckram instead of Bomb. Then YOU Take that Buckram and Go To Syria and Meet Dr Assad and Whoop His Ass if You are willing to do it by long range bomb.
Do what any Real Man Would Do and Beat The Living Devil Out of that Bloody Dentist. Tighten the links in his teeth and show him how to floss; if you are a true leader. Because honestly all this talk about dropping bombs is just making us wonder about you.
Mr President Isn’t It Time to Listen To The Mothers? After All – We Are The Lifegivers Now Run Tell Dat to Congress,
