Why do YOU?

OBAMA is the one who drew that famous red line that he's now been forced to admit that Bashar al-Assad has crossed by using chemical weapons. That left him with two or three options:

1) Publicly support al-Assad's side with means including but not limited to American military men & women

2) Publicly support the rebels' side with means including but not limited to American military men & women

3) Do nothing at all, except maybe more lip service

4) Quietly support the rebels' side with means EXCLUDING American military men and women--at least for now.

Since Options 1 & 2 were clearly unacceptable, and Option 3 would have shown him as a wuss who talks big but does nothing else, he's chosen Option 4.

Don't kid yourself, Miner. He's only arming the rebels because it was the only way he could avoid losing face WITHOUT putting American military in harm's way.

Back in'10, there was serious talk of Alaska sececeding from the Union. Turned out to be only talk, but they were discussing 'Nationalizing' the oil, asnd natural resources, gold, timber, and seafoods. The only drawback was that russia was just a stone's throw from our shores. Last I heard, they deemed it too big a gamble.
Would have been interesting to see what kind of currency they might have come up with. Last time they did it, we ended up with Plastic coins, in different colors no less. No matter the color, they were all One dollar value. Heck, I was just glad they didn't use clam shells.(heh. Not true. That was my dad's line.)

OK, figuring out the connection is going to be quite the exercise in linear thinking.

Wait a minute, if Obama was the secret Muslim terrorist the teabaggers say he is wouldn't he already be giving weapons to the Muslim rebels in Syria?

Well said, Lis.
I think Hip's sour ramblings lately mean he's suffering a bit of the same disillusionment that's keeping Willie away.
I drop by to see how low the thread can go once in a while; seems to me the lowlight (and, sadly, highlight) of the last couple of weeks has been a birther telling a truther they're crazy.

The only thing I'm disillusioned with, Roberta, are the regular posters in this thread. This is no longer a discussion; opposition views are nothing more than cues.

You're a snob Willie and a jealous one too. you can't stand not being in the limelight. The truth is (if you have the courage to acknowledge it) is you are not always right, in fact often not close. It would be refreshing to hear some humility from you but hey it ain't going to happen. I can live with that, but don't try to elevate yourself by saying none of us have the ability to discuss. We are doing fine with or without you.

Show me where I said people here don't have the ability to discuss, or admit you're just a liar.

I mean, I've only been here for, what, going on six years? Jeez, even I could have figured it out long ago if I was going to make that claim.

That's not what I said. You're superimposing a couple of your worn out overused narratives on my post, which is pretty much all you seem to do anymore.

Like I said - a perfect example of what I was talking about.

Miner would rather think that barry is committing resources because he actually gives a damn about Syrians.

The truth is that obama's "red line" mega-mouth has forced him into a position where he has to do something, but since he doesn't really care about Syria, or Syrians, it's a minimal committment.

I agree with Sarah Palin... let Allah sort it out. Syria is not our business.

At least the Yankees stopped their losing streak at five games... the Rangers just lost their sixth in a row.

Yea, that's better than talking about somebody using play money.
