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.”
