Obama Might Memorialize 9/11 with Attack on Syria

It’s a theory, but darned possible given Obama’s ego and powers of persuasion. What American would oppose a US attack to rid Syria of chemical weapons on Sept. 11 and regain the image of the almighty US?

The timing of President Barack Obama’s blitz to convince Congress to back a military strike on the Assad regime points to next Wednesday, September 11 and the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States, as a possible date to strike.

Exploiting the 9/11 date would arouse emotions, patriotism and the ever-present  dream of returning America as the feared and fearless leader of the Free World.

Testimony by the Secretaries of Defense and State before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday left no doubt that the President has crossed the point of no return.

Whether one is for or against an American military strike, and whether or not President Obama has appeared to be an uncertain and weak leader , his brilliant oratory and management by control, like him or not, could turn popular opinion in his favor.

All polls show that America does not want to get involved in another war, especially one that is being fought by a madman against an assortment of equally deranged murderers who have made the world forget what the Arab Spring rebellion in Syria was all about more than two years ago.

The Al Qaeda attacks on Sept, 11, 2001, turned it into the blackest day in American history, a day when a group of terrorists used simple pen knives to bring might America to its knees.

Ever since, the United States has appeared to be a weakling, its shining armor forever pierced and rusted, its economy mired with grossly high underemployment, and its position as a world power mocked by the radiclal Islam movement, on which Russia has hitched a ride to lord it over America and bring back the Cold War of the 1950s.

Obama, right or wrong, has the opportunity to regain the stage for America to show the world that the sun has not yet sets on its role as the leader of the Free World and the supposed guardian of mankind.

One can imagine Obama speaking on Sept. 10: “My fellow countrymen, I know we are tired of wars. We don’t want war. We will not get into a war with Syria but instead will prevent war. If we don’t reduce Assad’s regime to ashes, the world – and God – will never forgive us for not having saved humanity from the unchallenged use of horrible chemical weapons as Assad’s forces have done in the past several weeks.

“Twelve years ago tomorrow, terrorists tried to destroy out great country. We did not surrender. We mourned our dead and pulled ourselves up by the bootstraps.

“I later ordered the elimination of  Al Qaeda leader Bin Laden and proved that we are defeating terrorism.”

For his clincher, Obama can declare, ”There is no better way to memorialize the nearly 3,000 loyal Americans who were killed in the 9/11 attacks than to strike back at the heart of terror. That is why I have asked Congress to support a military strike on the Assad terrorist regime.

“I know that that there are other equally animal-like terrorists who might take Assad’s place, but an American military strike will show them that they will meet the same fate if they carry out war crimes.

“9/11 is next Wednesday, the day we can turn into one that will be remembered – not for terror’s attack on America but rather for America’s victory over terrorism.”

And may God protect all of us, especially Israel.

  7. Obama is the only president with balls in the last 20 years. He’s killed through his orders more terrorists than any other president. Compare to Bush who accomplished nothing except running his hillbilly mouth and attracting the same. Whatever he has or has not done, count the bodies of terrorists. Assad has a good chance of being killed while conservatives whine. He;s done nothing stupid except make stupid people mad.

    Why?

  12. Lisa Zweigle says:

    As an American over 80% here in the US are not in favor of him in our government. He is a Muslim and we see behind his lies and tactics. The problem is, he has appointed Muslim members in the Government and in many positions of power. He is destroying out country every day with all his agendas and executive orders. Because he is a Muslim, he will use 9-11 not as a tool to get people on his side, but to show the Muslim community how much power he has and that he will do to try and stop not only the Jews, but all those who worship Yehowah as Lord and Savior. His plan is to go in the Syria and create a war, so that Syria will attack Israel…and cause the US to have the hand of God turn against them. He is in our country to destroy us and Israel and those who are followers of Yehowah know it. We are not about going into countries like this and stirring up war, we want peace and we want this evil man out of office.

  13. And there I thought POTUS Obama was just going to Stockholm, Sweden, to pray at the 'Grand Mosk' and show off his golf skills…pretty good speculation in the article, not bad at all, very close to what most of US expect out of him.

  14. Betty Sines says:

    IF Obama strikes in Syria, especially on 911 it is only more proof of his sympathies to al quada. Many people here in USA do not trust him.

  15. Cody Flecker says:

    The 72% of America's Jews who voted for this Mulatto would feel really proud of themselves when they see Israel destroyed by the Muslim hordes poised to stream across the Israeli border. These J Streeters, and BDS lovers could sleep easy at night knowing that only democracy in the Middle East has been vanquished. American Jews are like the German Jews of another era who thought that Hitler would leave them alone, after all they thought that they were a part of the Master Race themselves.

  16. Mark Ingram says:

    …I don't think it will be on 9/11…….this is in congress' hands so it probably won't be until December or maybe next year…..this IS congress we are talking about………

  17. Joanne Burnell Schrump says:

    I feel everything you said, Lisa Z., and have been telling my friends this and they as much as laugh at me. What is wrong with our people who have been blinded by Obama? Must they, Those who are blinded by Obama wait until Obama and his Muslim Family completely take over America and start chopping off Christians and women's heads right here in America? America is the one Syria will hurt the most because God will always be protecting Israel. The Bible says so…………..

  18. Benjamin Fox says:

    He the illegal president should read Isaiah 9:10 that is what he is bringing to America.

  19. Muslim Obama with his show media, I beg the congress to decide for a "no", the US should not get involved in any case in the syrian barbarian war, the syrian goverment, syrian army, rebels, sunnies, shiites, hezbollah, al qaeda, others, they all don't care the live of womens, childrens, men, fathers, mothers, sons, doughters, brothers, sisters, etc:, they kill each other, that is the way of live of them.

  20. Yechiel Baum says:

    Muslim Obama would not do it on 9/11 which is a day of victory for the muslims.

    If he wants to do any retributions for 9/11, then the army should be poised to Yemen, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt from where these murderers originated.

  21. Pres Obama, ooo, ooo, I know!, I know! Don't bomb Syria… they're ALREADY laughing- what are you going to do, kill some Syrians? Ha-ha.
    MOVE THE EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM! T H A T would tweak their noses!

  22. Lisa Zweigle says:

    People of Israel, you must see that our Media spills out lies about our country to the world so that they will get an incorrect painting of the people. There are thousands of us who Love Israel and the people…No body here likes this president and we see him as a wolf in sheep clothes. Our military troops do not want to fight not because they are weak, but because they are finding out the lies of this Government…They will defend their country when attacked, but no one wants to go into other countries and get involved in civil wars. Obama is a Hitler in disguise creating the same divisions as Hitler did, in effort to take over and kill the Jews and Christians.

  23. Time may be running out. I think that what were seeing right in front of our eyes today is likely going to become the war spoken of in Isaiah 17 where Damascus is taken away from being a city and becomes a ruinous heap. Isaiah spoke of it as a burden and of course it was and is. Anytime you believe that millions could soon die it is no fun to warn people about it. I wrote a book that contains information about salvation and prophecy in the word of God, and it also contains information about Isaiah 17 and several other things I believe are important for everyone to know. It really is free, I don’t even accept donations, it’s just the word of God that I hope you will read. It’s short, only about 7 pages so it won’t take up much time at all. I urge you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

  24. Obama's attack on Syria is only to "save face" for him personally since he overstated, over did with his rhetoric… "the red line". As far as atrocious acts such as 9-11 which involves Muslim individuals – he tells us "don't jump to conclusions" – for example that was how he handled the "Ft. Hood terrorist" which acts we still cannot refer to as "terrorism".

  25. Obama let us hope will be dealt with at the G20. The worst decision he could make is to attack Syria – clearly declaring, world wide who he is backing. Evidence has come forward, a third faction affiliated to Al Quad, namely FSA is responsible for the Chemical attack 21/8/13. 'Free Syrian Army' released chemical attack, goods supplied by Saudi. Also UK has supplied Syria during the last two years. BBC New & including Euro News have/are not delivering full facts, indeed both stations, appear to be saving US face. Israel could suffer or more precisely be the 'Scapegoat'? Israel must be aware of this, Israel is prepared, my faith lies with Israel who will put down this business swiftly. Kissinger posted his view this week, suggesting Israel leave Syria alone, encourage her to retain a firm hand in power, allowing Syria to split herself into various factions. Israel is quite able to handle wild card factions in Syria, particularly when Assad is returned.

    Times of Israel.

    Leading rabbis covering the religious and political spectrum urged lawmakers in Congress to support President Obama’s plans to strike Syria to stop its use of chemical weapons.

    “We write you as descendants of Holocaust survivors and refugees, whose ancestors were gassed to death in concentration camps,” said the letter sent Wednesday, on the eve of Rosh Hashanah. “We write you as a people who have faced persecution for many centuries, and are glad to have found a safe refuge where we can thrive in the United States.”.

    The 17 signers included Rabbi Eric Yoffie, a past president of the Union for Reform Judaism; Rabbi Yosef Blau, the rosh yeshiva at Yeshiva University; leaders of the Conservative movement; and essayists such as Leon Wieseltier and Rabbi Joseph Telushkin.

    They called on Congress “with great urgency to authorize the President to use force in Syria ‘in connection with the use of chemical weapons or other weapons of mass destruction,’ as outlined in his August 31st draft legislation.

    “Through this act, Congress has the capacity to save thousands of lives,” the letter said.

    The authors noted that the letter was timed for before the Days of Awe between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

    “May this coming year be one of life and creation the world over, in which we cease to witness the deaths of so many innocent human beings,” it said.

    Erm doesn't bombing innocent Syrians create death? If they don't want death then they should say NO to Obama.. and using the holocaust as an excuse is the most disgusting thing I have read.. Maybe all Communists should be rounded up and massacred to prevent them bolshevizing themselves and the World they only murdered 100.000.000..

  28. he called america the world's 911

  29. Obama should use chemical weapon on arabs and muslims terrorists go obama eliminate and wipe them

  30. Sue Diotte says:

    If so, just another fruitless excuse for a war.

  31. Linda Mills Whatley says:

    think about it..that is why he would..what better day to start ww3?

  32. Linda Mills Whatley says:

    what better day for a muslim to start ww3.. hummmm
