Putin has been among the loudest critics on the international stage of Obama's push for a military strike in Syria. He reportedly blasted the push on Wednesday as an "act of aggression." He has said in recent interviews that a strike would be illegal if the United Nations does not support it.

Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, underscored during a Senate hearing on Tuesday how Russia stands to undermine any U.S. action. He said the Russians might just replace anything the United States destroys.

"The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) was established in July 1981 by U.S-based members of the Muslim Brotherhood with a background as leaders of the Muslim Students Association (MSA). As author and terrorism expert Steven Emerson puts it, ISNA “grew out of the Muslim Students Association, which also was founded by Brotherhood members.” Indeed, Muslim Brothers would dominate ISNA’s leadership throughout the Society’s early years. Striving “to advance the cause of Islam and serve Muslims in North America so as to enable them to adopt Islam as a complete way of life,” ISNA was highly dependent upon Saudi funding during its early years."

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Aides to President Obama said today that he was “visibly shaken” after receiving support from House Speaker John Boehner for his Syria campaign, adding that the Speaker’s vote of confidence was “making him rethink the whole thing.”
An aide to Mr. Obama, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said that he was in the Oval Office with the President when he got the call from Mr. Boehner:“As it became clear that Boehner was going to support him on this, he looked more and more stunned. He was trying to stay calm and all but you could see that he was really taken aback.”
After putting down the phone with Mr. Boehner, the President reportedly told aides,“Boehner’s supporting it. That’s so weird. This is still a good idea, right?”
Moments after the President had “seemed to settle down,” the aide said, he received a phone call from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who also offered his support for the Syria plan.
“That one really rattled him,” the aide said.“He was like,‘I think I need to take a long walk.’”
The calls from Mr. Boehner and Mr. Cantor have created what the aide called “the biggest crisis of confidence this President has ever experienced.”
“I checked in on him later in the day, just to see if he was O.K.,” the aide said.“He was cradling his head in his hands saying,‘I just don’t know. I just don’t know anymore.’”
While the President’s plan to attack Syria remains on the table, the aide indicated that the situation is very fluid:“If Rand Paul calls today and says he’s in, the whole thing goes away.”

Recasting his role in setting a “red line” on Syria, President Barack Obama insisted on Wednesday that Congress and the world will lose credibility if Bashar Assad’s alleged chemical weapons massacre goes unpunished.

“My credibility’s not on the line. The international community’s credibility is on the line, and America and Congress’ credibility is on the line,” Obama said during a visit to Stockholm, Sweden.

“I do have to ask people, well, if, in fact, you’re outraged by the slaughter of innocent people, what are you doing about it?” Obama asked.“The moral thing to do is not to stand by and do nothing.”

The president rejected any notion that he needs to use military force against Syria in order to preserve his personal standing in the world after calling a chemical weapons attack a “red line” in an Aug. 20, 2012, press conference.

“I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line,” he insisted.“The world set a red line when governments representing 98 percent of the world’s population said the use of chemical weapons are abhorrent and passed a treaty forbidding their use even when countries are engaged in war.”

And “Congress set a red line when it ratified that treaty. Congress set a red line when it indicated, in a piece of legislation titled the Syria Accountability Act, that some of the horrendous things that are happening on the ground there need to be answered for,” he added.World's Worst Dictators

Why should the Republicans or Democrats approve it when the U.N. and our allies gave Obama the thumbs down already?

Syria is not an immanent threat to our national security and most Americans are tired of having to be the world police.

Obama blew it. Done deal. He might somehow get support in Congress, but I bet a majority of Americans, just like with Obamacare disagree with Obama.

US Bio-Chem Terror Factories and Syria
What the WMD attack in Syria did do… is expose the presence of a series of facilities whose “output” makes Sarin gas look like child’s play.
The labs are real, just as real as NSA spying. Recently, they manufactured what may well lead to a world war over Syria.
They can do worse Recent chemical warfare attack in Syria has led investigators to a decade-old network of secret labs spread from the Caspian Basin to the Baltic.
The story of these facilities may well overshadow years of unimaginable horrors, torture, secret prisons, massive spying and the orchestrated destruction of world economies.

With widely respected political leaders in the US, Senator Ron Paul, Congressman Alan Grayson, Pat Buchanan and even Zbigniew Brzezinski either declaring recent chemical attacks a false flag or voicing total skepticism over US involvement, wider issues of nightmarish American secret labs are being suppressed

According to Obama my (and your) credibility is more on the line than his.Funny,I don't recalled drawing a red line. My bad, sorry world.
