Obama on Syria: Low-Quality ‘Jaw-Jaw’

I’m skeptical that we have any intention of taking action against Syria – even punitive action, with no view to an outcome or end-state.

2.  You might well have been unaware, given the lack of coverage in the mainstream media, that a Russian naval task force arrived in Cuba on 5 August, marking the first such visit in four years.  The lead warship is the Slava-class cruiser Moskva, accompanied by the Udaloy-class destroyer Vice Admiral Kulakov and an oiler, Ivan Bubnov.  The Moskva task force went to Nicaragua next, where it arrived 12 August for the first-ever visit of a Russian (or Soviet) naval ship to the Central American country.

Moskva is scheduled to visit Venezuela on this deployment as well, and will conduct joint operations with the Venezuelan navy.

3.  China’s navy continues to bolster an active profile in the Pacific, having completed a provocative circumnavigation of Japan in early August.  Circumnavigating Japan is something you do only for its own sake; it doesn’t take you anywhere.  A foreign research ship might have maritime science interests, but when a foreign navy does it, it’s just a provocation.

China also wasn’t getting enough attention in Washington for her naval intelligence collection against Hawaii and Guam, so one of her naval officers announced it baldly at a maritime conference in early June 2013.  The Washington Times spoke with a U.S. analyst who confirmed that Chinese naval ships have entered the U.S. exclusive economic zones off Hawaii and Guam.

Chinese aggression in the South China Sea has the Philippines arming up – and Japan, under geopol-activist Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, stepping in to offer help.  All worms turn eventually.

The launch of Japan’s biggest new warship, a helicopter-carrying big-deck, in early August, did get plenty of attention from the MSM.

Carrier qualifications for J-15 fighter jets on China’s aircraft carrier in June got less of an MSM focus, as did revelations from independent media, in early August, that China indeed has her own indigenous aircraft carrier in construction.

  1. Ch Hoffman says:

    the writer is using a very serious situation with international consequences to gin up his vile hatred of the President of the United States.
    Between the innuendo and the misrepresentations, there is not a single objective statement in the entire piece.

    But then, the Jewish Press is primarily a missive to the Jews from Rush Limbaugh, and the writer is just one of its water-carriers.

  2. If US forces strike the strategic Syrian military compound, what will happen Assad he will continue continuing the civil war?, he will again rearmed from Russia, China and Iran, and kill more civilians, really it is better that US should not get involved in the Syrian civil war, let the kill each other, untill there will be sufficient men, and much more women, that is why the mulims have many wives and produce more males for the next wars.

Obama obtained NO verifiable commitments from Cuba it would desist from acts prejudicial to the US

No one would deny that the program subjected detainees to less than pleasant treatment, but the salient point is, for what purpose?

For the past six years President Obama has consistently deplored all Palestinian efforts to end-run negotiations in search of a UN-imposed agreement on Israel.

It’s not an admiration. It is simply a kind of journalist fascination. It stands out, it’s different from more traditional Orthodoxy.

For Am Yisrael, the sun’s movements are subservient to the purpose of our existence.

Another nation – probably Iran, possibly Russia and/or Syria – is entering the fight in Iraq in a new and fully committed way.

There is now NO possible explanation for not evacuating at least non-essential personnel from the U.S. embassy and consulates in Iraq.

ISIS is executing, slowly but surely, a pincer move on Baghdad.
