When Islamic terrorists speak, they lie.

That should make things simple, even for the Leftist slime atheist anarchists in America.

UN Inspectors were in-country.

Chemical weapons were used.

Who used those weapons?

Who would benefit from "framing" the Assad government?

Assad would never use chemical weapons on Israel...he has his hands full just fighting terrorist in his own country without pissing-off Israel.

For my money terrorist used those chemical weapons...and this places Israel at risk.

Take a few minutes to remember...before President Bush invaded Iraq__Russian Special Forces and Syrian troops convoyed WMD from Iraq to Syria.

Nancy Pelosi went to Syria to verify the transfer of those WMD.

Liberal/Socialist American politicians have all this blood on their hands. Now terrorist have those WMD and millions of American citizens are at risk.

Terrorist operatives know the "weather patterns" along interstate highway systems and releasing chemical weapons at the "right" time in the "right" place will be a major mess. Thank you Nancy Pelosi!

If just 1 of every 1,000 illegals crossing the Mexican border is a trained terrorist, that places at least 11,000 Muslim terrorist inside the United States. Millions of American lives are at risk.

Thank you Liberal/Socialist [basking-in-treason] politicians.

Back in the "Good Old Days" [before political correctness] we were trained in how to "kill" terrorist.

We were trained, "If you want to kill terrorist...think like a terrorist."

We were also trained in technique for taking-out terrorist in methods that saved tax-dollars.

This was before our Liberal/Socialist/Muslim president set "new" rules of engagement giving terrorist [Obama, "My Muslim brethern..."] all of the advantages.

Clinton had several of the 9-11 terrorist in prison...released them in time to attack NYC and the Pentagon.

Obama's Liberal/Socialist command structure at Fort Lewis, McChord, and the Pentagon are well aware of terrorist WMD potential along the I-5 corridor...and hope to be "safely" retired before doomsday strikes the Pacific Northwest.

FBI "ignored" my report of an Arab photographing rail system in Tacoma.

PS:__I live well within WMD kill zone.

Many people her in America pay lip service to how much they disdain tyrants and tyranny, and yet they also oppose military intervention in Syria. If Assad isn't a tyrant worthy of being toppled, then I don't know what is. How can they reconcile these two opposite positions?

"Nothing is what it seems"...[name that movie].

Top is Bottom...

Up is Down...

Right is Wrong...

Left is Right...

Night is day...

Truth is Lie...

Obama is Weak...Obama is Weak...

Obama and his Muslim Brotherhood brethern are everywhere...and proping-up corrupt/and/or military [non-Muslim Brotherhood] government is a "must".

Egypt falls to Muslim Brotherhood, Syria falls to Muslim Brotherhood, the entire region including Israel [Obama hates Israel] falls.

Radical Islam must be contained "within" their own sphere of influence...otherwise the entire plant falls to Radical Islam...Christianity is outlawed and non-radical Muslims and all non-Muslims perish in the "billions"...

Muslim Brotherhood and Radical Islam have the potential to make the combination of Hitler, Stalin, and Mao look like a troop of "rookie" Cub Scouts.

The United States has an "obligation" to the "entire" world to "save" Egypt and Syria.

Because they are now sick and tired of letting young American soldier's die to fight other people's wars for them!! Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan were (and still are) a huge cost in American lives and US taxpayer's money. They have had way more than enough of this idiocy.

What if the soldiers want to do it?
They are their lives and bodies.
That's the argument made for abortion and assisted suicide.

To win wars in the shortest period of time, and least casualties you have to have the "desire" to win.

WWII was our last serious attempt to win a war.

Korea, and Vietnam set the Liberal/Socialist "trend" of rules of engagement giving all the advantages to the enemy.

Liberal/Socialist "political correctness" is also a major problem contributing to wars lasting ten or more years.

War on terrorism has lasted more than 10 years and declared to be "two" wars [political correctness].

WWII was fought on a dozen fronts, so under "political correctness" that would be 12 wars.

Under "factual correctness" WWII was 1 war [12 fronts], fought and "won" in 4 years.

Under "political correctness" WWII would have been 12 wars, 10 years each, and @ 10 years per war would last 120 years, scheduled to end in the year 2061.

Something is very wrong with "minds" that "believe"...politica l correctness is something they cannot live without.

Vietnam lasted 10 years because America was "correctly" concerned China and Russia would become involved in large scale combat operations.

Where then is the rationale for our war in Arab-Land lasting more than 10 years? Is America "afraid" some big__bad Arab is going to kick a little grit in our faces?

China and Russia could care less if America fought a WWII style kick-ass war in Arab-Land.

This war has lasted so long because of the treason of American politicians. Putin finally got a belly-full of trying to "reason" with our Muslim [pro Muslim Brotherhood] president.

We will continue to lose American soldiers as long as Obama's hand-picked Liberal/Socialist operative military officers, including Joint Chief's continue to practice treason as a way of life rather than a capital crime.

They have the superpower bug. When it's mixed with good doses of self-righteousness and aversions to learning curves, sometimes good things but more often than not, scary things can happen.

A military is only as effective as the president behind it.FDR[D]led us to victory because he clearly defined what"infamy"and "genocide" meant to the American people.In 12 years,FDR led us out of the great depression and made us a respectable world partner.We cannot not retreat behind our borders and wait for the tyrants to knock on the door.We must knock on their's.
