The quick retaliation that Obama promised against Syria isn't going to be so quick after all. There are several reasons that come into play. The first: Russia, China and Iran; attempts to bribe, blackmail and threaten these nations hasn't worked. Because of this resolve, US allies aren't as keen to involve themselves in another US-led war. Such a conflict will not be like past ventures in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya (isolated nations with greatly inferior military capability).
A war in Syria risks a direct confrontation with Russia and China. That could lead to WW III.
Another reason Obama is wavering is because the media propaganda machine has failed to convince enough Americans that a strike on Syria is necessary. Even more significant, the US military itself is pushing back against the idea of attacking Syria. This backbone is long overdue.
I watched Obama and his minions in both parties go on television to amp up their lies, seeking to justify the unjustifiable to the world. Particularly striking was Obama, on Friday, saying that he had the Executive "authority" to attack another nation without the consent of Congress.
The Constitution specifically states that only Congress has the power to declare war, not the president. Yet we've had every war since WW II, bypass this requirement. Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Libya, Bosnia, Somalia, Sudan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and now the threat to Syria. Call it what you will, a police action, intervention or whatever word game you use. When you attack a nation, whether it's a "limited" action or full-scale invasion, it is an act of war.
Obama claimed that he was seeking to act in their national security interests. What would those be? Syria is and was no threat to attack the US. In fact, there would be no civil war in Syria, no so-called Arab Spring without the US and Saudi Arabia planning and executing the entire thing. As such, Obama has positioned the US as one of the leading sponsors of worldwide terrorism.
Obama never acts in US national security interests. He acts at the bidding of his international, globalist masters, to the detriment of that nation.
Obama also claimed that he was the "president of the world's oldest constitutional democracy." (This coming from a self-lauded constitutional law professor.) Obama avoids the word "Republic" like a vampire avoids sunlight. A democracy is mob rule without limits. America's founders loathed the very word, "democracy." A Constitutional Republic, which is what they have, or at least had, provides for a specifically limited government. Under the supreme law of the land, federal governmental authority is both defined and constrained.
What we have now is the most corrupt president and Congress is that nation's history. They are bought and paid for by banker, "New World Order" interests.
After failing miserably to stir up the world, Obama is now changing tracks very fast. He now wants to play a very dirty game of saying that the world drew the “Red Line”. As far as I am aware his words were that if Syria should use chemical weapons, it would trigger an automatic Americas military response. This statement was not issued through the UN but by Obama himself. He never said there will be a world response; no he said there will be an American response. This is so typically Obama. This is called “Projection”.
Now he is changing his tune and trying to place the burden he created on the world. Unfortunately for him, this is not working.
The narcissist, Obama, has put himself in a no-win situation. If he attacks Syria, with or without congressional approval, he risks the consequences of a war we're all unprepared for. If he backs down he loses face and is exposed yet again as a clueless leader.
Here is another concern that I have. Desperate people do stupid things. Obama is desperate.
Why a chemical attack in Syria?
Who would gain from such a thing? Not the Syrian government. Bashar Assad's forces, with aid from Hezbollah, Iran and Russia are routing the "Free Syrian Army" made up mostly of foreign Muslim jihadists. These are actually Muslim Brothehood and al-Quada terrorists. There's no need to use chemical weapons against an enemy who's losing and in retreat. Unless of course, it was a strategic move to draw the US into a trap. That is, get the US to attack Syria and in turn be annihilated by waiting and prepared Russian and Chinese forces. (More about their military capabilities in a moment.)
Unless the Syrians and their allies want the US to attack them, the only other beneficiaries of a chemical attack are the rebels, who have nothing to lose by staging a false flag attack and blaming it on the Syrian government.
Obama had hoped that the rebels could do the dirty work themselves. They can't, not without direct US involvement.
I'll clarify that this is a Saudi and US-backed proxy war, pitting Sunni Islam (Saudi Arabia) against Shiite Islam (Iran). The warmongers have the gall to use the 1400 chemical attack death toll as justification to go to war. What about the 110,000 killed in the Syrian civil war that Obama and his gang, started?
In Syria, Christians are being systematically targeted for: rape, torture and murder by the barbarians that America arm and support. Same thing happened in Egypt. Where's the outrage against the slaughter of Christians in their own countries where they formally lived in peace?
If humanitarian reasons were enough to intervene in a sovereign nation's affairs, why aren't they attacking North Korea or China? You know the answer. The Russians and Chinese possess formidable weapons technology and the willingness to use them. The Chinese have an overwhelming cyber-attack capability. So too, they possess cutting edge satellite-killing orbital weapons and space-based weapons platforms. Of interest, some Chinese satellites have altered orbits recently amazing and concerning US defense experts.
The Chinese have also perfected super-sonic, ship-killing missiles that even US aircraft carriers can't evade or defend against. The Russians have similar anti-ship missile capability, top-notch anti-aircraft and anti-missile systems combined with the most advanced military aircraft in the world. (See Jane's) They've also developed a super-caveating torpedo that creates a gas bubble in front of the fired torpedo, which allows for much greater speed than a conventional torpedo. Notice a pattern here? Speed kills in the combat environment.
The US currently has no known defense against these weapons. Their current anti-missile systems can't lock onto and destroy these Russian and Chinese missiles. They're too fast. The US have had some success with prototype laser missile interceptors but nothing's ready to be deployed. Thus, the US Navy is extraordinarily vulnerable to such attacks.
I don't have to remind you of the respective Chinese and Russian nuclear capabilities. Let me make a bold statement here. I don't think Obama would authorize a nuclear counter-strike in the event of a nuclear attack on the US. (Just my opinion.) I have no information to suggest this, it's just a gut feeling I have.
Yet one way or the other, the US is determined to attack Syria. By the way, any attack on Syria will precipitate an attack on Israel by Syria, Iran and Hezbollah. Israel will respond, possibly bringing the destruction of Damascus as described in Isaiah 17. Don't worry about Israel. They will be okay. Once Israel realizes that God is their true security, and beseech Him, He will answer.
Russia too, is reported to be ready to attack Saudi Arabia in retaliation. The US and world economy will be destroyed, no matter what else happens.
Does this madness make any sense? It does to Satan and those who further his agenda. The ultimate goal is subjugation of the entire world under one man: the Antichrist. Syria is the linchpin. It's where the escalating conflict starts. The rest of this year will be very interesting.
An individual that I know of, a person (in the know), is particularly concerned about an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack.
An EMP would destroy such things as computers, utilities, communications and transportation. We would effectively be pushed on a technological level back to the 1890s. A blue ribbon panel appointed by American Congress came to the conclusion that such an attack would see 90% casualty rate in the US within 18 months after the event.
If this person is concerned, it's something to consider. Read up on EMP effects.
Some would like to believe these sold-out deceivers, as they come on television and plead with Americans to believe their lies just one more time. The same people that lie about Benghazi, the IRS targeting Obama's enemies, the NSA spying on every American, and the Justice Department tapping reporters phones and computers. How about operation Fast and Furious selling guns to Mexican drug cartels so that the Obama Administration could point to gun violence in Mexico to justify gun control in the US? Would YOU believe them just one more time?
The Obama administration has amply proven that they'll lie, cover-up and shed blood to further their plans. To them, dead bodies are only useful props.
Beware another false flag event. If they don't get the desired public opinion turnaround to go ahead with attacking Syria, they might just pull off another, more spectacular provocation. Of course those who perpetrate such things are also in charge of the ensuing investigation. How convenient.
As example, this past week Secretary of State John Kerry was caught using a photo from 2003 Iraq, claiming it pictured the victims of the chemical attack last month. That photo was identified for what it was and promptly removed from Kerry's "evidence."
Bungling incompetence or another willful lie? As Hillary would say, what does it matter? We know the character of these people. I believe nothing they say. Absolutely nothing.
Unfolding events are things to be aware of, not things to fear for those who love the Jesus Christ. Such days were predicted in the Bible and are happening now. So be it.
