"Idiot"!!! There was no need for Obama "to go to the UN for approval of his military strike" as Britain had already proposed the resolution that would authorize the use of military force against Syria. It was on August 28th that the Security Council failed to authorize the authorization.
I did not say it was "Israel's fault". I basically said they were feeding the frenzy. That is a FACT that can not be argued.
"Wall Street Journal’s article,“U.S., Allies Prepare to Act as Syria Intelligence Mounts,”(which was written before Obama sought Congressional approval) states:
One crucial piece of the emerging case came from Israeli spy services, which provided the Central Intelligence Agency with intelligence from inside an elite special Syrian unit that oversees Mr. Assad’s chemical weapons, Arab diplomats said. The intelligence, which the CIA was able to verify, showed that certain types of chemical weapons were moved in advance to the same Damascus suburbs where the attack allegedly took place a week ago, Arab diplomats said.
Both Mossad and the CIA are clearly compromised in terms of objectivity and legitimacy. Neither exists nor is expected to provide impartial evidence, but rather to facilitate by all means necessary the self-serving agendas, interests, and objectives of their respective governments.
That both Israel and the United States, as far back as 2007 have openly conspired together to overthrow the government of Syria through a carefully engineered sectarian bloodbath, discredits entirely their respective intelligence agencies. This is precisely why an impartial, objective third-party investigation has been called for by the international community and agreed upon by the Syrian government...."
globalresearch is not a site I would quote on matters re: Israel or much else. That sites creator, a Canadian, is a right wing freakazoid as well as a holocaust denier.
Russia and Iran have just assumed ownership of Syria__no matter what Obama does.
Obama can walk away knowing that he did his best to intervene. Once in a while "oh well-fck it," is the best route__with Syria it's likely the only one.
