Obama Syria attack diverts attention from economy Obamacare Obama problems, Rush Limbaugh quotes Yossef Bodansky, What If Bashar Didn’t Do It?
“I do not believe John Kerry is fit to be commander in chief of the armed forces of the United States. This is not a political issue. It is a matter of his judgement, truthfulness, reliability, loyalty, and trust–all absolute tenets of command.”…REAR ADMIRAL ROY F. HOFFMAN, USN (RETIRED)
“Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior U.N. diplomat said Monday.
Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.
But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons, according to the BBC, but she added that more investigation was needed.”…Washington Times, May 6, 2013
“You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.”…Abraham Lincoln
I do not trust Obama.
Why should I?
Obama has plenty of reasons to divert attention away from his issues and administration.
Not the least of which is the economy and impact of Obamacare.
You can only fudge the numbers so long.
This alone is reason enough for Obama to push for a Syria attack.
But remember, Obama stated that he would stand with the Muslims.
“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
I listened to Rush Limbaugh yesterday.
From the Rush Limbaugh transcripts September 3, 2013.
“Bodansky: What If Bashar Didn’t Do It?”
“RUSH: All right. So here’s the deal. Last week, Obama reverses himself and says that he’s not gonna go into Syria. Remember, they’re using nerve gas. John Kerry goes out there, 1,500 people, 2,400 people, a lot of kids, nerve gas, sarin gas, got the proof. Look, I’m gonna get into all the hypocrisy. Yes, Kerry dining with Bashar back in 2009 and talking about what a great guy Bashar was. The bottom line is this administration is as incompetent as Jimmy Carter. There’s only one difference. If there were anybody else running this administration right now, this would be reported as incompetent and as buffoonish and as frightening at Jimmy Carter’s.
This is Jimmy Carter’s second term here. This is absolutely frightening what’s happening here. Obama with this inadvertent, trying to make himself look like a tough guy, red line comment this past summer. Well, the Syrians crossed the red line, so Obama’s obligated. And late in the week last week, he said, “You know what? I’m gonna go get congressional authority,” after maintaining he didn’t need it, maintaining he didn’t want it, maintaining he’s gonna be a tough guy, gonna act alone. He’s gonna save the people of Syria. He’s gonna make sure this Bashar guy gets what’s coming to him.
Then all of a sudden he switches gears we’re told after a walk Friday night on the White House grounds. Yes. He decided he’s gonna use congressional authority. He’s gonna go to Congress. Now, when this announcement was made — ’cause this had been discussed. I mean, the idea of congressional authority for use-of-force authorization had been discussed. There had been test votes taken by virtue of interview. At the time, there was no way Congress was gonna authorize it. Didn’t stand a prayer, which Obama knew, which the point was to blame Republicans. It was the Limbaugh Theorem in play. Obama forget about it essentially. The plan was change direction, reverse field, announce that he’s gonna go to Congress to get a use-of-force authorization, and then when the Republicans don’t give it to him, blame them for dead Syrians. ”
“You have here, ostensibly, Bashar al-Assad nerve gassing his own people. Sarin gas. Lurch told us. John Kerry. He told us this Friday. Obama’s got the red line drawn out there. They crossed the red line. Obama’s manhood is on the line. Oh, my God, he’s a gotta huff and puff! He’s been huffing and puffing. All of a sudden, “You know what? To hell with it! I’m gonna wait awhile. I’m gonna wait on Congress.”
Wait a minute. People are dying, I thought. He’s nerve gassing people! He’s nerve gassing his own people, chemical weapons, weapons of mass destruction, and we’re gonna wait for Congress to get back? We gotta wait a few days, rather than strike now? ‘Cause all we’re gonna do is we’re gonna have a, what, three-minute to five-hour strike, whatever it takes to show that…”
“What if Bashar didn’t do it?
Sit tight, ’cause I’ve got a story by a man whose credibility is intact and beyond repute. His name is Yossef Bodansky. He “is an Israeli-American political scientist who served as Director of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare of the US House of Representatives from 1988 to 2004. He is also Director of Research of the International Strategic Studies Association and has been a visiting scholar at Johns Hopkins University’s Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS).”
“”There is a growing volume of new evidence from numerous sources in the Middle East — mostly affiliated with the Syrian opposition and its sponsors and supporters — which makes a very strong case, based on solid circumstantial evidence, that the August 21, 2013, chemical strike in the Damascus suburbs was indeed a pre-meditated provocation by the Syrian opposition. The extent of US foreknowledge of this provocation needs further investigation because available data puts the ‘horror’ of the Barack Obama White House in a different and disturbing light.”
This guy is not a kook, folks. He’s not a nut. He’s not an Internet Looney Toon, the guy writing this, Yossef Bodansky. In fact, in reading further about this guy, Yossef Bodansky argued that the deception playing out right now in Syria is a deception similar to one used in Sarajevo in 1995 to provoke air strikes against the Serbs for the benefit of the Bosnian Muslims. ”

We didn’t attack Saddam Hussein when the following occurred.
“As early as April 1987, the Iraqis used chemical weapons to remove Kurds from their villages in northern Iraq during the Anfal campaign. It is estimated that chemical weapons were used on approximately 40 Kurdish villages, with the largest of these attacks occurring on March 16, 1988 against the Kurdish town of Halabja.
Beginning in the morning on March 16, 1988 and continuing all night, the Iraqis rained down volley after volley of bombs filled with a deadly mixture of mustard gas and nerve agents on Halabja. Immediate effects of the chemicals included blindness, vomiting, blisters, convulsions, and asphyxiation. Approximately 5,000 women, men, and children died within days of the attacks. Long-term effects included permanent blindness, cancer, and birth defects. An estimated 10,000 lived, but live daily with the disfigurement and sicknesses from the chemical weapons.
Saddam Hussein’s cousin, Ali Hassan al-Majid was directly in charge of the chemical attacks against the Kurds, earning him the epithet, “Chemical Ali.””
You have been informed at Citizen Wells about the real unemployment situation and economy.
Here is another example.
From Zero Hedge September 3, 2013.
“Unemployment At One Year High, Gallup Finds”
“Since lately it seems that the BLS’ sole mandate is to smooth and otherwise seasonally adjust noisy, incomplete employment data, even as the one part of employment that should not be rising – part-time jobs – continues to creep ever higher both seasonally adjusted and otherwise, it has become virtually impossible to get an accurate, unadjusted perspective of how the US labor force is truly doing. And with this Friday’s non-farm payroll report “the most important ever”, as every other month of course, this time because it will seal the fate of the taper (or won’t) depending if the data is bad enough, everyone is eager to get a sense of what is going on behind the scenes and how to position for Friday.”
“Which means that while the Gallup data is largely useless from a policy, or trading perspective, it is very useful in one key fashion: it shows that the US economy continues to deteriorate, and that increasingly more people have no jobs when stripping out the BLS’ favorite labor force participation adjustment gimmick.”
If you still don’t believe that Obama has motivation to divert attention away from the economy, Obamacare and his other issues, you had better wake up and start making plans to survive the real crisis that could develop.
