The world is watching and waiting to see what President Obama, and Commander in Chief is going to do.. and tonight there are two news articles that should be mandatory reading--neither of course has been written in the American press, but instead the foreign media, as usual..
First off: The UK GUARDIAN reporting on the geopolitics guiding the policy on Syria behind the scenes..
The money quote:
The second article, and perhaps more poignant, comes from the UK INDEPENDENT, where Robert Fisk asks if Obama knows he is going to be fighting on the Al Qaida side in Syria.. The quote worth reading twice:
If Barack Obama decides to attack the Syrian regime, he has ensured – for the very first time in history – that the United States will be on the same side as al-Qa’ida. Quite an alliance! Was it not the Three Musketeers who shouted “All for one and one for all” each time they sought combat? This really should be the new battle cry if – or when – the statesmen of the Western world go to war against Bashar al-Assad. The men who destroyed so many thousands on 9/11 will then be fighting alongside the very nation whose innocents they so cruelly murdered almost exactly 12 years ago. Quite an achievement for Obama, Cameron, Hollande and the rest of the miniature warlords.
Tonight we are being told that 'intelligence' is mounting .. that Action is coming.. though Russia is warning and China is cautioning..
Remember back when Obama & Co wanted to impeach Bush for a war without Congressional approval? So much for that now.. Remember the anti-war protests.. those long ago days of people urging caution and lampooning Bush for outrageous claims about Iraq? It just feels like 2003 all over again.
So ... do you want this war?
Do you even know it's about to begin?
