When Obama rushed to open US Embassy in Syria in early 2009, the Iranian regime were involved in the preparation of the Chemical WMDs warheads against Israel in Syrian bases as part of all-out war of the Mozlem Brother terrorists under the Iranian regime against Israel. It is clear that the pro-Iranian Obama will do nothing to stop the Iranian-Syrian WMD attack on Israel and will continue defending the Iranian regime from Israeli attack on its nukes. The bluffer Obama is playing double game behind our backs aiming at isolating Israel and surround Israel with the Mozlem Brother enemies that seek converting Jerusalem to the center of the Caliphate under the Iranian nuke superpower agenda of Obama. However, the self loathing liberal Jews of America will continue to support the Mozlem Brother Messiah Obama who undermines Israel security behind our backs and organizing the Mozlem Brother for Jihad war.

I wonder if Syria can put the chemical weapons 'on target'. Having a weapon can instill fear, but to do real damage it must be useable.

We know the terrorists would like to use any wmd they can get. If the west attacks Syria or Iran will they provide the terrorists what they have? Of course the cost to them would is that their country would be a transformation of sand to green glass.
Who is willing to pay the price?

What the hell do you think Saddam used against the Kurds and Iranians?? Smelling Salt?? LIAR! This is how you stupid idiots manipulate the truth to cover your own ignorance. Iraq produced tons of biological agents all by its lonesome dummy. Iraq managed to produce anthrax, aflatoxin, botulinum toxin, gas gangrene, ricin, and wheat smut, and was also known to be working on cholera, mycotoxins, shigellosis, and viruses (including camelpox, infectious hemorrhaghic conjunctivitis and rotavirus) as well as genetic engineering. There are suspicions that Iraq was also working on smallpox.
Iraq denied that it ever had an offensive BW program until the defection of Hussein Kamal, Saddam Hussein's son-in-law and head of the WMD program in Iraq, in 1995. Even then, Iraq continued to hide as much information, equipment and material from UN inspectors as it could. Thus, many aspects of Iraq's biological weapon program remain unknown. These unknowns include the total amount of germ agent Iraq produced and the status of Iraq's unaccounted for stocks of biological growth media, agents, production equipment and handbooks, as well as munitions and warheads. Furthermore, inspectors say that Iraq became self-sufficient, meaning it no longer needed imports to fuel its BW program. The uncertainties that surround this program made it all the more threatening in the absence of inspections and monitoring.
Iraq's germ weapon program began at a single site "the Al-Hazen Institute" in the 1970s. By the end of the 1980s, Iraq had several more dedicated sites (Al Salman, Al Muthanna, the Technical Research Center at Al Salman, and Al Hakam among them) and had broadened the scope of its research to include just about every major weaponized germ and many viruses. In the late 1980s, Iraq began field tests, although new germs and new sites were still being added. Iraq had also weaponized germ agents before the first Gulf war, and some weapons had even been deployed. Little of this activity was discovered by the UN inspectors until 1995.
By 1989-1990, both Al Hakam and Daura (Al Manal) were producing botulinum toxin on an industrial scale. By September 1990, Iraq had also achieved industrial-scale production of anthrax at Al Hakam and possibly at Al Manal. The activities undertaken in 1989 and 1990, which included field testing of aerial bombs, rockets and other munitions, the expansion of research and agent production, and the acquisition of additional facilities (Al Manal), have never been fully understood, and the inspectors were unable to draw conclusions about the full extent and scope of Iraq's program.

I don't think that President Obama has done a very good job either, but the reasons for Jewish liberalism are a bit more complicated than you make it seem. If Governor Romney wants to make significant inroads in the Jewish vote (as Reagan did in '80), he could do a few things:
1. Pledge to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.(As Gingrich did.)
2. Pledge to pardon Jonathan Pollard (or at least commute his sentence).
3. Pledge to Include Israel in the Global Counter Terrorism Forum.
4. Clearly distinguish his economic platform from that of Bush.
5. Choose a running mate with a proven track record in support of Jewish causes.
6. Tie US aid to Egypt and the PA to their opposition to Hamas and building upon JNF land.
7. Avoid including people like James Baker in his foreign policy advisory team.
I'm not saying that such steps would cause Romney to win the Jewish vote, but he could make significant inroads. A lot of Jewish voters may not be happy with Obama but may have bad memories about GOP presidents like Bush-41 (Israeli loan guarantees) and Reagan (AWACS).

yeah we get it you are a card carrying bigot that does not like black people, especially black democrats, so save your energy and get lost, he is going to win the next election and will continue to help the country, decrease the DOD expenses, increase taxes to the rich, decrease the subsidy to the oil companies, and better health care, so stop whining.
