The emperor has no clothes!
I must truly be living in some bizarro alternate universe where up is down and wrong is right. The President today in Stockholm Sweden said that even if congress does not approve an air strike he would unleash a can of whip ass on the Syrian government. He also said he was going to do this because of “national security” reasons. Now I admit I am not the smartest person around, but please “national security”. Maybe he thinks the Syrians are going to launch a ballistic missile filled with Sarin gas at Washington.
All this because he opened his mouth and dared Syria to cross the red line and Syria called his bluff, now he is scrambling for a way to back off his threat. It reminds me of being back in grade school and some boy would threaten the school bully only to realize when the bully turned and came for him he could not back up his threat. The English parliament, the UN and six out of ten Americans do not want the United States to take any military action against Syria, however obama said he speaks for everyone.
But the emperor like a child who was told no is having a tantrum. Can’t you just see him in private kicking the furniture and screaming at his aids saying ‘how can they not do what I say’, I am the President. If the outcome of his actions did not have such serious ramifications this would make for a great cartoon. Its’ bad enough he backed the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt now he wants to back al-Qaeda in Syria. The total of his actions on the world stage is making it harder and harder not to believe that he wants the middle East to be dominated by our enemies.
Maybe this is his way of promoting alternate energy
by cutting off our supply of oil from the Middle East?
