For the sake of consciousness and civility I believe it would be an interesting endeavor to either look into the current situation in Syria and just hopefully we might be able to start some kind of dialogue based on what we know, what we don’t know, and what our allies and coalition partners around the world are telling the United States with their apparent isolationist behaviors.
Not being one to ever shield or otherwise look to protect a President who has absolutely conned his way through his entire existence to include relations with foreign countries whilst being devoid of any strategies or foreign policy.
Moreover it is apparent from the mainstream media that their analysts, pundits, and experts are clearly saying the same thing, “sorry Mr. President but this one is on tape…” (Neil Cavuto, Fox News, Sep. 5, 2013) in reference to the POTUS statement about how it was the world who commented on the red line and that he never stated it.
It certainly seems to us that not only the American people but also the world is not aligning themselves with implied threats and his overall arrogant attitude. So let us address what we do know with reasonable certainty.
On or about August 21, 2013 the leadership of Syria used some kind of nerve gas – a chemical weapon of mass destruction – on fellow citizens, members of al-Assad’s party, for the most part done so on a indiscriminate basis. We have all heard the shocking stories of chemical weapons used in other wars that are so profound that there exists United Nation’s laws, International courts, and of course the Geneva Convention who are on record as being totally against anyone violating and/or utilizing this act.
So why then aren’t the other nations willingly taking a number for their shot at this maniacal regime? We mean isn’t the entire world on display here? Interestingly when anyone remotely goes into the Human Rights Violations – Crimes aspect of this ugly situation demands are made.
Now we do understand retribution as well as punishment for despicable crimes against humankind – but where else is the support of a coalition.
As for the founding generation Thomas Jefferson’s first inaugural address (1801) he addressed “peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations – entangling alliances with none.”
Media reports are going right after Barack Obama and his overly loose lips. Even more important to ALL Americans is the notion that Obama has broken too many promises, scrambled to much bull squat, and quite openly has let to many situations go along without recourse whatsoever. This is the main reason why we believe so many, as the entire world does not support the USA with actions of serious conflict.
It was George Washington’s Farewell Address in 1796 where he warned of alliances: “Tis our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.”
It is no surprise at all when asking what the Founder’s would do insofar as it is reasonably well-known what their standards were. Consider the range of wars that the founding generation was involved in – before the USA was the USA. In fact, George Washington saw his first uniform in 1740, age eight, when his elder brother went off to fight in the War of Jenkins’ Ear.
General George Washington was a professional soldier as he was constantly requesting a commissioned officers status from the British Ministers’ of War, as well as fought with them in several Indian Wars and is believed to have fought for them in the battle at Fort Pitt.
Please understand that during the Revolutionary War it was not simply the British versus the Colonies of the U.S. It was during that war that General Washington had suspected the British of using germ warfare with the issuance of small pox blankets to wounded patriot warriors starting in Boston.
However what concerns us was the amount of hostilities that occurred between Loyalists versus Patriots. In addition the Louisiana Purchase became suspect as it pitted the now USA versus Napoleon or even the entire French nation. Yet prior to this indeed, the U.S.A. had already been engaged in another war – The Barbary Wars – that included the Muslim principalities of Morocco, Algiers, Tunis, and Tripoli, Libya starting in 1801.
