Obama wants to take military action against Syria, seeks congress vote

For attacking its citizens with chemical weapons on August 21, president Barack Obama wants the US to take military action against Syria and is now seeking congressional authorization to intervene.

The Syrian government carried out chemical weapons attack in Damascus in the early hours of August 21, killing at least 1,400 people as they slept in their homes. Although the government is denying being behind the attack, president Obama says the military action against Syria is necessary to deter future chemical attacks...not only in Syria but other governments thinking of doing same. 
"We cannot and will not turn a blind eye to what happened in Damascus. What message are we sending out if a dictator can gas hundreds of children to death in plain sight without paying a price" Obama said
Once the US congress reconvenes on September 9th, president Obama will have his answer. Do you think the US should take any military action against Syria? Meanwhile Britain has said they will not take part in any military action against Syria but UK Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted that "he understands and supports president Obama's position"

My humble stand is that the Arab league shud take the lead if they actually wanted Assad out of syria.

Chemical weapon or not, meddling by USA wud b a huge financial commitment which only the arab world can provide. Saudi,Turkey and qatar shud take charge

I admire thos man's wittiness and intelligence somuch.
So as not to share the same fate with Cameron he unequivocally stated that America must respond to this insult to human dignity,but will wait foe the consent of the congress which may coincide with the release of the UN investigatin team report.
This will help his in winning enough votes needed for his proposed action on Syrian government.

Were chemical weapons used in Syria - yes, by whom???? rebels or government ??? no-one knows.

Games are being played in Syria and the middle east and its unfortunate innocent lives are being lost cos at the end of the day its all about money and power.

Ask yourself, what does Assad stand to gain by using chemical weapons knowing it was a hardline that would bring in the US? they are not THAT stupid. who stands to benefit from the US striking Syria??? I can name 2 or 3people.

But the wider implications of a US attack on Syria are dire and will draw Iran, Hezbollah, Israel and some other key regional players into a mega conflict. The objective is clear, and may God help the innocent people that would loose their lives in that chaos.

the problem of syria is like the problem of nigeria, for decades the minority has been ignored and mistreated badly, fortunately they finally got a dictator that is from the minority group( Alawite), this finally gave them a say in the countries policies which has long been under the dictatorship by the shites Muslims, so the reason for the conflict is that the shites Muslims wants to bring back power to there own side which Al-Asshad family and there tribes men (Alawite) has strongly fought against and becos Al-Assad is not western friendly, they want him out of the office. let us pray that this does not lead to a world war, becos Russia and China is Strongly against any US military action.
So pls no one should put all the blame on Al-Asshad.

The right-libertarian faction is stronger in the House than the Senate. Plus there are more than a few of the teabagger caucus who will simply vote no to whatever Obama says. Add in Democratic defections and it may get dicey for the administration.

If Obama goes ahead with an attack in spite of Congress rejecting it, he will have announced more loudly and definitively than Bush ever did that Congress is a nullity, that they have no authority to constrain the president from making war. That would indeed be a Rubicon moment for America.

Unlike Cameron, Obama's government will not fall if he defies the will of Congress. So he can do what he likes.

Question is, will Congress impeach him if he ignores their decision? If Obama takes the responsibility for the war completely on himself, and it goes sour, it may boomerang on him.

All ye conspiracy theorists,I bet you think the world is flat too America makes it looks otherwise.
The earlier you lot get your heads out of ur arses the better it would be for you all.
America couldn't have attacked Syria,the Assad regime has always had chemical weapons which the US I'd aware of but couldn't really take any action.
This incident makes it easy for the US to intevene depending what Congress votes.
If at all any other party besides the Asad state army is to be blamed for this dastardly act then it should be the Free Syrian Army.
I mean those rebels have shown the manner of monsters they are,they eat human hearts,desecrate graves and what have you.
Its logical to conclude that they gassed their own people so as to bring international intevention,seeing that they don't seem to be winning the war.
Don't forget,the rebels are also allies with Hezbollah,a terrorist set that hates the US/Isreal and has no respect for human lives.
Should America go in?should there be "boots on ground" in Syria"?
YES! YES! YES!

I would want every politically thinking person to open their mind,President Assad is very much aware that the use of chemical weapons will cause international reactions and most definately U.S reaction,and that is the least thing he want.This is another propaganda Of the west,it is a well calculated attempt to get the sympathies of the average man on the street all around the world to justify the invasion of that sovereign country.Remember it was nuclear weapon that was the justification of invasion of iraq and as i write this there is still no evidence of such till day.the world should not sleep and allow this international bullying to continue. This is write up in support of Asssad and policies but the U.S should allow each country handle its crisis.The only reason Nigeria was invaded during the Niger delta crisis is bcos our govt sided with them and so they will turn the other eye to any form of masacre as far as ure on their side.it is unacceaptable to only bring out ur human Right sword only when it pays you

Madam political analyst can you prove that it was the government that used it the same day the UN chemical inspectors they invited to investigate other alleged case entered the country, and used it on their own soldiers too, why has the US failed to show the world even one of the proof it claims to have, why is nobody talking about the barrels of deadly chemicals that has been reported by western media that the rebels have in their possession and continue to develop, including the extremist terrorist cells, who else has an interest in Syria that will benefit from such action. Why should the Americans brake UN regulations of going through the security council to uphold the same UN resolution, are the British MPs all daft, is this not actually a grand plot to invade like they did in Iraq and Libya to overthrow a government in the name of going to collect weapons of mass destruction that didn't exist, in case you don't follow the news closely the sectarian strife they planted in Iraq kills over 700 people monthly now and will not end any time visible, Libya has been totally destroyed and today terrorism as a result of that is why Nigeria is suffering the scourge of bokoharam that are killing us with Libya weapons, let me tell you why congress like the British parliament will vote it down, because the now have new source of energy so are hopefully not totally dependent on eastern oil which has always been the driving force and the desire by the US to continue playing a role they lost its credibility long ago and using Israeli intelligence to judge Syria is just a big joke because Israel is a US partner and core Syrian antagonist that cannot be said to be unbiased @patattah

Jide Talabi said...

Here is how I think it would play. Come September 9th the UN report on the Syrian Massacre would be out and the White House will present it to Congress. He would also have returned from the G-20 summit in Russia and had time to tell President Putin that the US will take no radical unilateral action against Syria.

Congress by split-vote will veto US military involvement in Syria citing various reasons from funding to 'we don't want another Iraq/Afghanistan'. However the White House would have backed this no-vote behind the scenes.

Obama will get on the phone with his principal NATO allies (Britain and France), and they will plan a covert "target elimination" of Assad and key Syrian regime members. The operation will be carried out by Israel and backed by Turkey (Syria's neighbours).

We will all wake up one morning to hear how Assad fell ill and died suddenly. Key regime members will be taken out and it would be made to look like the work of the FSA (Free Syrian Army).

The West will have their man out of the way, no boot would have been on the ground, and cynics will say it was an act of GOD. Make no mistake, Assad is only alive because the US have not found a cogent reason to eliminate him, NOT because the US cannot eliminate him. There will be action against Syria, but the US will try to ensure it is not directly fingered.

All the lunatics of the Middle East have either been eliminated or forced into exile. Even the strong man in Iran (Ex-President Ahmadinejad) has chosen retirement over having a perennial position of being in US cross hairs. The US has enough assets to eliminate any living breathing target on the surface of this planet within a few hours if they so decide. The rest of us are just fortunate that such power has never been granted to a raving lunatic.

Anonymous said...

I agree with you but sometimes when we fold our hands and allow evil to prevail when we can actually speak up we are more evil. POTUS is recommending a 'no boots on the ground' action. Target a few SAM sites where the chemical warheads are launched from and cripple their capabilities, but it is not really about Syria and Syrians its more about the next mad man who will rise up in North Korea, Afghanista, or anyone from the axis of evil to do same because we all keep quiet.

Was watching the uk debate on whether or nt they should join Obama in d Syrian invasion n all I could pick up as a reason for refusal to join was the fact that they don't fink there's a trust worthy replacement for ASAAd. They consider not just the reasons for the Attack but by also considering the lives of almost over 2million Christians at stake should the Islamic aspirant succeed ASAAd. This and more are the reasons why dey decline to join the u.s. pls consider their reasons rationally. For precautionary reasons, they've launched a typhoon to protect their sovereign regioNs in anticipation of an ambush.

Let's break it down..
1.The assad regime might av used this chemical weapons,with confidence in their allies(russia,china n tehran) to dare the US.if u think the russians n americans will find common grounds over syria...then u shud ask who edward snowden is.

2.The FSA might av carried out dis chemical attack ,so as to draw western world into the conflict,yet again there is a report that syrian soldiers used gas masks days before dat chemical attack..which again points to the fact they were aware of a said chemical attack.

3.If US along with its allies ,turkey,france,saudi strikes syria...it automatically draws the syrian army,tehran,russia china n israel into the conflict..den again these countries have their own military mights.

4.If assad is ignored..n the west says its an arab affair...will same be said if dear leader uses same chemical weapons against seoul?...evil persists wen good people do nothing.

5.If US strikes...wat den follows?a regime change or an intensified campaign against FSA by the assad regime.

6.Syria has oil..sudan doesn't.iraq has oil somalia doesn't ...libya has oil.

7.We all agree assad is bad...so if a bunch of protesters decide to stage an uprising against their legitimate government..does it then follow that we should expect the western world to come topple dat regime??

8. Russia is not weak...china is not weak...iran is not weak ... The EU is not even behind Uk n france yet...US Turkey saudi israel ...etc..too many countries involved in a conflict is definitely a blueprint for another worldwar.

In summary...me sef typing this analysis...its a delicate scenario n I can't categorically advise obama to strike assad....it will be made known by my oga @ the top. So so dats all.
