Obama Begins Attack Blitz, Says 24 Nations Back ‘Strong Response’

The White House announced Monday that more than dozen more countries have formally backed a “strong international response” to the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

The United States now has the support of 24 countries, not including Israel which has tried to lay low. The list includes an interesting collection of allies, such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Italy, Germany, France, Albania, Australia and Denmark.

“We condemn in the strongest terms the horrific chemical weapons attack in the suburbs of Damascus on August 21st that claimed the lives of so many men, women and children,” the statement says. “The evidence clearly points to the Syrian government being responsible for the attack, which is part of a pattern of chemical weapons use by the regime.”

    Psst, every time Obama or anyone from his administration speaks, we are watching before our very eyes Isaiah 60:5 happen. America’s credibility and influence is crumbling. Israel, time to take up the mantel. “For the affluence of the West will be turned over to Israel.”
