The Morning After… If Obama Bombs Syria

If the opposition gets into power and has nerve gas, they'd use it, too.

obama bombing

The proposed threat of an American attack on Syria brings up more questions than solutions.

Since I’m in the year of mourning for my mother, I content myself with watching just the news on television, mostly BBC, Europe and Bloomberg. So, I’ve been hearing a lot about the United States President Barack Hussein Obama and his attempts to get the support of Congress and foreign countries for his proposed attack.

There are some very serious problems with his plan.

– One, he wants to replace Bashar al-Assad with the opposition, which isn’t in favor of American plans. And they certainly aren’t western and freedom-loving. You can best describe the opposing sides as “the devil and the deep blue sea.”

– Obama is trying to convince the Americans that this attack won’t require any American soldier to land in dangerous Syrian territory. If that’s the case, how does he expect to destroy all of the nerve gas?

– And if he doesn’t totally destroy the nerve gas, what’s the point?

It’s pretty obvious that if the opposition gets into power and has nerve gas, they’d use it, too. I consider it terribly naïve to think that there are such differences between the Syrian sides. Remember what has been going on in Egypt. The world, especially Barack Hussein Obama, enthusiastically celebrated and praised the change of regime and “democratic elections” in which Mohammed Morsi was elected president. He didn’t last very long, because the Egyptian public is volatile. They aren’t the same culture and nature as Americans or even Europeans.

The more I listen to the news, the less I want an attack on Syria. It will only destroy the fragile peace that now exists in the Middle East, and if this area becomes a true war zone, no place, not Europe, America, Africa or Asia will be safe. Is that the legacy Barack Obama wants to leave on this earth, be known as the man who started World War Three?

  1. The show media, Obama Kerry, Hagel, Dempsey, the five horsemen of the apocalypse.

  2. Lisa Zweigle says:

    Exactly, He wishes to destroy the Peace in the Middle East and this is the reason why He is "LOOKING" for an excuse to attack Syria. If Muslim led Obooma can get our Nation to turn it's back on Israel then He knows God will come against us…Then we will cease to exist.

  3. Innocent people will suffer.

  4. Larry Newman says:

    common sense, seems like, to me.

  5. I see we're reading from the same source, some good articles.

  6. If this is considered peace in the middle east, I would hate to see what war looks like. For a President that likes to promote himself as a peace loving moderate, the evidence shows otherwise. Obama's proposed actions in Syria reminds me of what he did in Egypt. Obama took it upon himself to promote Morsi and ousted Mubarak. As the Egyptian people soon found out, they were in worse condition with the Muslim Brotherhood. One of the most fundamental questions to ask when deciding to take military action is, does the conflict pose a security threat to your country. Despite the assertions to the contrary by the administration, the answer would be no. Kerry claims that by not striking Syria it will destabilize the region. But, there has already been warnings that if there is a strike against Syria, Israel will be attacked. How is that more stable. Another thing I don't understand is this conflict has been going on for two and a half years, chemical weapons have been used before, and even with conventional weapons the death toll tops 100,000 people. Yet, nobody did anything about it. What is the sudden urgency. Kerry claims that the opposition in Syria are moderates. But, I have heard that some of these people are involved with terrorist groups. According to some, if action was taken earlier, it would have been easier to identify who these people are and there was a more moderate group that we could have identified and provided weapons thereby eliminating the need for the U.S. to conduct a missile strike. Overall, the American people are against the proposed action in Syria. I understand the humanitarian side of things. But, let the U.N. deal with it. The Democrats like to complain about the operation taken in Iraq when Bush was President. But, at least we were able to get rid of a tyrannical regime. I hope the politicians in Washington will be smart enough to vote against this proposal.
