The title of a recently released CBS News article is “Obama orders release of report justifying Syria strike” (Web-site/URL: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18563_162-57600171/obama-orders-release-of-report-justifying-syria-strike/).
“Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday (August 26 2013) the evidence “is screaming at us” that chemical weapons were used in Syria, and he said President Obama believes “there must be ACCOUNTABILITY” — the latest sign that the administration is getting ready for a possible military strike against the Assad regime”. When were POLITICIANS EVER “accountable?” Again, this seems to be ONLY RHETORIC.
“Kerry said he had looked again at the pictures we all saw last week of the victims of the attack — many of them CHILDREN — and can’t get them out of his head”. Again “children” are vulnerable, NOT WOMEN. “What we saw in Syria last week should SHOULD SHOCK THE CONSCIENCE OF THE WORLD” obviously. “It defies any code of MORALITY. Let me be clear: The indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of WOMEN and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity. By ANY standard, it is INEXCUSABLE and — despite the EXCUSES and equivocations that some have manufactured — IT IS UNDENIABLE” that Syria USED chemical weapons. Also “excuses” are DEFENSIVE (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“The words Kerry used and the force with which he delivered them left little doubt the U.S. WILL SOON strike Syria. “President Obama believes there must be ACCOUNTABILITY for those who used the world’s most heinous weapons against the world’s most vulnerable people“. Notice “accountability”. This is most likely another example of POLITICIANS BLOWING SMOKE.
So, IS WAR WITH BASHAR AL-ASSAD IMMINENT?
