Article I, Section 8, of the American Constitution gives Congress the power to declare war.
The American Military oath: “I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic... So help me God.” Not to keep the oath, is treason.
As the U.S. National Debt Clock ticks its way to the seventeen (17) trillion dollars debt, the Obama Administration is also ticking their way to another war that will help an Al Qaeda terrorist offspring depose yet another former ally. So will the American government continue facilitating the ascent of radical Islam and their Muslim terrorists, further destabilizing the region and the world at large.
The American Administration penchant for theatrics is striking, while a demoralized and disoriented American people, neutralized by their ever shrinking personal finances, may not even have had the time to observe the premeditation with which the government has been gearing up for their next war for quite a time now.
Surely, since the 80s, Syria has been involved in developing, producing and weaponizing chemicals. But, regardless of that, a year ago Obama made a tactical threat on the Assad regime not to use chemicals, or a retaliation would ensue. As such, the ground was laid just in case the removal of Assad did not go the way the American Administration wanted it to go.
Indeed, as a result of the infamous Arab Spring, which followed the Obama Cairo Speech of 2009, the conflict this time began with the Syrian population unhappy with Assad. But, soon enough, the situation soured when their cause was also adopted by Al Qaeda’s local offshot, the US-designated terrorist group, Al Nusra Front, which claimed responsibility for spectacular and deadly bombings in Damascus and Aleppo, and whose terrorists joined other rebel groups in attacks on Assad's forces.
Last March 2013, a Harvard University study showed that the cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan could reach an overwhelming $6 trillion dollars – or $75,000 for every household. "More than half of the 1.56 million troops who have been discharged to date have received medical treatment at VA [Dept of Veteran Affairs] facilities and been granted benefits [as disability compensation] for the rest of their lives," the report said, adding that the real bills last for decades to come.
As Robert Hormats explains in his enlightening book, “The Price of Liberty:” “America's first Treasury Secretary, Alexander Hamilton, insisted that "the creation of debt should always be accompanied with the means of its extinguishment." In his view, this was not simply good fiscal policy, it was also vital because it affected the government's creditworthiness and thus its ability to borrow funds in the case of a future conflict. He was especially preoccupied with ensuring that potential lenders, especially foreigners, retain confidence in the soundness of American finances because they might be called to lend to the U.S. government -- as during the Revolution -- in the event of another war.
To Mr. Obama’s discharge, during George W. Bush war in Iraq, “... the government [did] not revise its fiscal strategy to increase taxes or cut civilian spending to cover the war's mounting military bills. Instead it ... relied on borrowing and emergency supplemental appropriations.
U.S. leaders have not wanted to call on Americans to make economic sacrifices, even at the outset of the war when it enjoyed considerable popularity. There were good reasons for not raising taxes at the time because the economy was weak; and a strong case was made that lowering taxes was needed to restore growth. But spending increases on non-military programs had no such justification.”
Bankrupting the country has no affiliation and it is done by the right and the left alike.
Informed, it befalls on people to put pressure on political leaders and remind them that their first and foremost priority must be American interests.
While the Syrian opposition uprise aimed at removing President Assad and replacing the regime for a pro-Democracy one, Al Qaeda aims to revive the Islamic Caliphate, the large empire in the time of the Prophet Mohammad, during the seventh century, which once stretched into Europe under Great Syria, which included Iraq.
No wonder this eventuality scares the Syrian conservative and tolerant Sunni Muslims, but also their minorities, such as the Christians and Alawites. They rightfully worry that al Qaeda could impose seventh-century, Taliban-style sharia law, with the help of the American president and his globalist liberal gang.
Here are a few examples of heavy naval carrier strike groups that could be available:
The USS Nimitz CSG with CVW 11 embarked is conducting missions supporting Operation Enduring Freedom, maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 5th Fleet AOR.
The USS Harry S Truman CSG with CVW 3 embarked is underway in the U.S. 5th Fleet AOR supporting maritime security operations and conducting theater security cooperation efforts.
The USS George Washington CSG with CVW 5 is underway in the Pacific Ocean during its summer patrol.
The USS George H. W. Bush is underway for a Tailored Ship's Training Availability (TSTA) and Final Evaluation Problem (FEP).
An amphibious ready group or ARG, is centered on three amphibious warfare ships, with a Marine Expeditionary Unit or MEU embarked. This unit is built around a heavily reinforced and mobile battalion of Marines, Americans sons and daughters.
The USS Kearsarge ARG with the 26th MEU embarked is underway in the U.S. 5th Fleet AOR supporting maritime security operations and conducting theater security cooperation efforts.
The USS Bonhomme Richard ARG with the 31st MEU embarked is conducting a certification exercise (CERTEX) in the U.S. 7th Fleet AOR.
Besides that, the Americans count on military bases in Turkey, Greece, Jordan and Cyprus. The steadfast leadership of Qatar is also a definite factor in the region, just as are the Emirates and Saudi, whose agenda is to help Islamist terrorists fight for the establishment of sharia in the region. Their next target: Syria.
As the American regime sides once again with terrorists to push radical Islam in Syria, and although no incontournable proof has been shown, Obama’s Secretary of State, John Kerry has not hesitated to accuse the Syrian government of “moral obscenity” for the alleged use of “chemical weapons.”
War in general, means abuse and its subsequent horrors. War in the Muslim world, brings along horrors of particular brutality, since cruelty is part of their everyday life, beheading, mutilations, amputations, honor killings, violence against women and child pedophilia, as is commanded to them by sharia.
One gruesome case brought by the news, has been the horrific footage showing Syrian terrorists in the opposition, forcing a boy to behead a captive from the Assad camp, with a sword. But the Obama Administration does not even mention the horrors committed by their terrorist friends.
Who can forget also the gruesome fate of former President Gaddafi, brutally butchered at the hands Islamic terrorists? Has the Obama Administration ever accused the terrorists of “moral obscenity,” of human rights violations?
Who can forget the horrible way Ambassador Stevens was also butchered by Islamic terrorists in Libya barely a year ago? The savages dragged Ambassador Stevens body through the streets while the Obama Administration was cold-bloodedly watching from their posh White House offices. That crime has yet to be paid for, by Obama, Hillary Clinton and the rest who was in attendance. Moral obscenity? No doubt.
There are countless Obama experts who are expecting the Obama Administration to join the terrorist “opposition”, regardless of the fiasco in Egypt.
Almost everyone seems willing to forget that most wars waged in the region, may have mitigated the problem but, in reality, they have not succeeded because the Muslim population at large are not ready to be sucked into the medieval claws of sharia.
To be sure, the Syrian population, just as the Egyptians, will soon enough turn against Obama for waging war against their country supporting the radical islamist terrorists who want to oppress them. As in Egypt, anti-Americanism will have been well earned, by the traitor American President and equally by the American people if they do not stop him.
They are being betrayed by the President, by Congress and by the people, when they are sent to fight side by side with the terrorists who are sworn enemies of America, for whom they are giving their lives to protect.
There is nothing to be proud of, when so called "civilized" countries lower themselves and send their own military to fight along side with barbaric terrorists.
This is their oath, to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. Not to keep that oath is also called treason.
In the Armed Forces EXCEPT the National Guard (Army or Air)
I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.
In the National Guard (Army or Air)
I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the State of (STATE NAME) against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the Governor of (STATE NAME) and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to law and regulations. So help me God.
It is no secret that the Obama Administration is against Israel and that Obama is being advised on this respect by his rabid anti-Semitic and anti-Israel Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, who has a nasty penchant to promote “humanitarian” intervention and feels the “responsibility to protect.”
In this context, Obama’s war on Syria will once again destabilize the fragile sand around Israel, turning it an easy target for Muslim terrorists. Indeed, Iran is already threatening an attack on Israel if America attacks Syria.
Despite the fact that Obama is relying on Israeli intelligence on the alleged Syria chemical attack, the Israeli leadership would do well to keep a distance and not let themselves be sucked in anyway into the insanity of this war, unless they are attacked, of course. They should rather reinforce their borders and protect their population. All else will not and cannot be good.
Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution gives Congress the power to declare war.
“The whole thing is insane. And the executive doesn’t care because all the time that conflict ensues, that just means more executive power. That’s exactly what the Founding Fathers feared...”
“President Obama just totally flouted the whole thing and basically said through his various memos, ‘I don’t need congressional authority to go to war.’ That was clearly an impeachable offense. It’s clearly gross usurpation of the war power. Both the Republicans and Democrats have acquiesced in that.”
For two years now, Obama has been intent in ousting President Assad, the better known of two evils and nevertheless a former ally. And, for that, he has armed the terrorists.
As a matter of fact, the liberal American leadership and accomplices, the UK, France, Germany and others, for once are avoiding submitting themselves to the UN power. They have a good reason to do so: China and Russia would veto the motion.
As Americans know, in the aftermath of the capture and killing of Osama Bin Laden, Obama betrayed the secrecy of the until then unknown Seal Team Six, America’s super-elite counter-terrorism group who authored the deed.
Two months later, 23 members of the same Seal Team Six, were sent to their murder most certainly by the Obama Administration, as every secret move of that fatidic night seem to have been shared with the Taliban terrorists who ambushed and murdered the group of valiant American heroes... In retaliation for the Bin Laden capture and execution?
Adding insult to injury, the Administration proceeded to cremate all the bodies without even consulting with the families. Thus all traces of the crime vanished.
There is no need for any congressional hearing, the American people can figure it out by themselves. There could only be one source for the treason committed against our team of most super-elite, heavily trained counter-terrorism group: The Obama Administration.
The Site Intelligence group states that Nusra claimed responsibility in one single day of November 2011, for 45 attacks in the Damascus, Deraa, Hama and Homs provinces killing, reportedly, dozens, including 60 in a single suicide bombing. Talk about weapons of mass destruction!
"In 18 communiqués issued on jihadist forums ... most of which contain pictures of the attacks, the al-Nusra Front claimed ambushes, assassinations, bombings and raids against Syrian security forces and 'shabbiha', the pro-Bashar al-Assad [undercover]," Site wrote.
The Obama Administration is used to lie, to make up ‘truths’ with impunity in order to advance the cause for which the Muslim President of America stands for and that has nothing to do with American interests.
After gearing up for this war with years and months of anticipation, they are announcing the “timely” news that the Assad regime has used chemical weapons against... the terrorists.
Were it true that the Syrian population has been gassed with chemicals then, one can wonder if chemicals were included with the armament America gave to the terrorists?
They can say whatever they want, but they have not provided any proof. However, the bottom line is that they are dragging America to war once again.
This anti-American President is a pro-Muslim globalist above anything else. Americans know that Obama is out to “change” their country radically. In other words, the cause of the good of America is never on his agenda. Precisely the contrary is true. He has and will continue to harm America.
The lame Congress, are still wondering if Obama will deign at least mention to them about his intentions to make war on Syria, when they should have summoned him or ordered the military to arrest him for unilaterally conspiring on making war, thus endangering the safety of the country and the people.
On the one hand, it is undeniable and regrettable the magnitude of the unraveling human tragedy in the Syrian conflict. At the same time, it is questionable also that the Syrian regime would risk using chemical weapons, especially with Obama’s warning that it could ensue the intervention of a Western coalition.
That said, even if the Syrian regime had used chemicals, it is not America or anyone else’s business to solve. Instead, it should be Muslim countries in the region to stop their comrades from gassing Muslim populations. They speak the language, it is the same culture and no one could defend best their interests other than themselves.
Although pundits keep insisting in waging war in far away lands, it is time for America and the West at large to stop meddling and rather close and reinforce their borders altogether to any kind of immigration.
America is bankrupt, with 102 million unemployed and 12 million jobless, Obamacare is a disaster in the making for the American people. The American military has been sabotaged in many ways, they are being killed and massacred as in Fort Hood, with impunity, they have been emasculated. Religion is being under attack and is on the way to be neutralized. The American family is on the way to be destroyed.
Now, Obama is striking again with a war that will financially ruin the nation and destroy the morale of Americans. He has total contempt for Congress who is now in summer recess, of course. But, that is not all. Once the war will have begun, Obama will finalize the strike signing the immigration bill to allow his mercenary legions of uneducated masses take over America.
The American jobless, unemployed, then will have lost all hope to ever have a job and the life standard in America will take a dive.
Just as Morsi, Obama cannot wait any longer to turn America sharia-abiding. But, unlike Morsi, Obama has been preparing this from the very beginning. So now, realistically speaking, Muslims can pick up the pieces.
If only the American people would stand and rise, and put pressure on Congress and the Military, and take the last chance to make right by our country, before it is too late.
The day Obama will launch the war on Syria, everyone who did not stop him, will be putting the last nail to the coffin of the American Dream.
God bless America.
