US Plans Missile Attack on Syria, but Obama Waits for ‘Hard Facts’

The US is preparing for an attack on Syria but Obama won’t give the order to “fire” until he is sure he has enough proof that Assad is using chemical weapons.

Ships from Chile, Colombia, Peru and the U.S. participated in the exercise. Unitas, Latin for "unity," is an annual USSOUTHCOM-sponsored, multinational naval exercise designed to enhance security cooperation and improve coalition operations between South American and U.S. maritime forces.

The U.S. Armed Forces is preparing for sea-to-land missiles on Syria, with no ground invasion in the cards, according to CNN. President Barack Obama admitted at a press conference Tuesday morning that chemical weapons are being used in Syria, but he added that there still is no evidence showing exactly who used them.

Syrian rebel sources claimed that chemical weapons were used again Tuesday morning, this time in northern Syria, but there have been no details concerning casualties.

“We have evidence that chemical weapons have been used in Syria, but we don’t know when, where, how and who used them,” President Obama said at the press conference.

“We don’t; want this genie [of chemical weapons] out of the box,” the president stated. When I make a decision for additional action [emphasis by the president], I have to have the facts…. If we rush into judgment without hard, effective evidence,” the United States will not have international support.”

The last think President Obama wants is another case of getting involved in foreign wars without international support, which was expected on the basis of America’s trying to save a foreign country from oppression and then achieving results that were exactly the opposite.

Once it is proven that Assad is guilty of using chemical weapons, the United States not only would be freer to act but also would have the opportunity to regain its image of leading to fight against evil.

If and when the United States attacks, thousands of soldiers will participate in the attack that is on the drawing boards, a senior government official told CNN.

The international community, which has done its best to snub the United States, would be forced to do an about-face and back the Obama administration if it produces evidence that Assad has used weapons of mass destruction, which could cause horrible injuries and deaths and also give the green light to terrorist organizations to do the same.

A Lebanese newspaper reported that an Egyptian diplomat has said that that the United States is prepared to deliver a “severe blow” to Syrian President Bashar Assad, with the possibility of participation of an international force, Voice of Israel public radio’s Arabic station reported Tuesday.

It said the decision to get ready for a direct military intervention was taken after a meeting two days ago between the Russian Foreign Minister and Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, who is to deliver a speech Tuesday night.

Nasrallah has said that Hezbollah is prepared for an “Israeli attack.”

    Obama is a coward and protects his co-religionists being a Moslem.
    HOwever little value who they kiil.

  2. Rick Berman says:

    Why shouldn't Israel take the lead in committing ground troops and missiles to help the Syrian opposition? Don't they have more of a vital interest than the US in the outcome of the Syrian civil war?

  3. This has the look of something that is coming to a head. A critical point of decision, a crossroads. Will the west get involved militarily? I noticed how familiar the situation in the middle east looks compared to what the Bible states will happen in Isaiah 17. Did you know that Damascus Syria has historically remained inhabited from the time of it’s founding until today? Despite military losses it has always been populated. Yet Isaiah 17 states that God will take it away from being a city. That has not happened as of yet. If God chooses to use mans weapons of mass destruction as one of the tools to bring that about then today’s news concerning Assad should get you interested enough to take a longer look at that short chapter. In addition Iran continues determined in it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Yet here we are with the clock ticking. In July of 2012 I wrote a small book that lists some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

  4. Obama is actually Jewish, Yechiel. Two weeks before the 2008 election, former Clinton adminstration lawyer, Abner Mikvah was quoted in the Chicago Jewish Daily News as predicting that Obama would be "the first Jewish president." To prove it, I guess, he has provided more military assistance to Israel than any of his predecessors.

  5. Charlie Hall says:

    I'm sure the Obamahaters will complain no matter what he does here.

  6. Obama is preparing to attack Syria on humanitarian grounds with no strategic objectives? And he's unwilling to attack Iran's nuclear facilities which are a far greater threat to regional stability, world peace, loss of life and American interests? It's amateur hour at the White House.

  10. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    obama has already started his 45th NEW WAR since 2009, more then all other US Presidents in US history COMBINED!

    Searching YouTube videos brings up scores of videos of "advisers" on the ground with the rebels in Syria – along with their interpreters – who just happen to be speaking with MidWest and Southern US accents. obama will do all he can to protect his allies in al qaeda, just as he is doing in Libya by obstructing any attempts to bring the perps of the Benghazi Massacre that he and hillary had al qaeda carry out to justice.

  11. Funny to read what crazies from another country write on these boards lol. As an American I can only agree with 2 things.

    1. Obama is an absolute moron who's foreign policy or lack thereof is shameful.

    2. The nuts in some of the islamic states need a good smackdown. It seems they are the only ones that profit from war. The make no money thru peace.

    Marc D. Goldberg Alex Jones? Really. Sorry but unlike Jew haters I don't subscribe to Ron Paul Media.

    That said…perhaps you should do some research before you spew forth in your defense of the holy one! Obama now has put US boots on the ground in just about every African state, mostly to protect al Qaeda as in Libya. Posted YouTube videos show US "advisers" on the ground with the al qaeda "rebels in Syria. There are US troops manning the missile batteries against assad in Turkey. Of course, what he refers to as the "good war" in afghanistan where he has now murdered over 3000 CIVILIANS in drone strikes. Then there's Yemen, his arming the drug cartels in Mexico, troops on the ground in Guatemala and US troops running armed drones over the Caribbean. Add in troops now stationed in Jordan and arming the Muslim Brotherhood. My count may be off by one or two. But your beloved holy one has started more NEW wars then all other US presidents COMBINED! And his routine attacks on Israel, coupled with his obfuscation of the massacre in Benghazi and we have a clear picture of your hero. And I notice you're a hillary fan.But we won't bring up her repeated lies and obfuscation over the benghazi genocide. No surprise. But then "what the f* difference does it make."

    Next time you wish to stage a personal attack (which is ALL your ilk knows to do when you can't fight the TRUTH), I suggest you either search the facts, or perhaps STFU until you grow up and learn to exchange intelligently. Now go slurp some kool aid
