Video: Credible, trustworthy public servant makes case for bombing Assad

posted at 6:43 pm on September 9, 2013 by Allahpundit

I admit, I get nervous when I read stories like this one questioning whether Assad is really directly responsible for Syria’s gas attacks. But then I watch Susan Rice and feel better, because I know: If she’s willing to stand behind an intelligence assessment, you can take it to the bank, baby.

Two highlights from today’s speech, one via the AP and the other via the Corner. Neither includes the part where she talked about how she feels as a mom looking at photos of Syrian children after they were gassed by the monster in Damascus. Is that feeling different from how she feels when she looks at photos of Syrian children shot and bombed? This is what I can’t understand about the White House’s sales pitch in all this: Normally it’s perfectly understandable to make a humanitarian case for intervention, but how do you make that case after sitting by for two and a half years while 100,000 people are killed? It’s ludicrous. If you want to try to sell the public on intervention at this late date, your best argument is that WMD use is, always and everywhere, a threat to U.S. national security. (Rice makes that claim here, naturally.) To add a johnny-come-lately humanitarian argument almost weakens the case, frankly, since it’s so glaringly hypocritical. They don’t care about Syrian kids or they would have bombed him in 2011. Simple as that. Why pretend otherwise now? Nobody’s fooled.

One other thing. In the second clip, she claims that letting Assad’s use of gas go unpunished would raise the risk “that deadly chemicals would spill across borders into neighboring Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, and Iraq.” How so? Logically, bombing Assad is more likely to make that happen than any alternative. If you hit him hard, he might retaliate by handing off nerve gas to Hezbollah or to his military units with instructions to go nuts on civilians. Or, if you take out the units that safeguard the gas, you might inadvertently clear the way for jihadi rebels to seize their arsenal before U.S. troops can reach it to secure it. The less Assad has to lose, the greater the risk that he’ll open the valves; the harder the U.S. hits him, potentially turning the tide of the war, the less he has to lose. Punishing this degenerate to send a message to would-be gassers in other countries is fine, and maybe would reduce the use of chemical weapons long-term, but understand that the price of that is probably more gas in the near term, not less.

It’s ludicrous.

From Andy McCarthy:

Now, I have a confession to make: I am unimpressed by the Western obsession over chemical weapons. They are ghastly, yes. But so, in the wrong hands, are bombs and jumbo jets and hollow-point bullets. To me, the shrieking over weapons of mass destruction is the international version of the Left’s domestic campaign against guns, and of a piece with its trendy revulsion against land- and sea-mines. This is the delusion that discord is caused by the song, not the singer. It is a cop-out: the pretense that there is a valid excuse for failing to grapple with the players and the ideologies that resort to violence — as if we live in a make-believe world where destructive weapons in the right hands are unnecessary to keep us safe; and where laws, conventions, and purported “norms” against various types of weapons are effective against rogues like Assad and al-Qaeda.

I’ll also confess to being even less persuaded than usual by the chemical-weapons arguments made specifically by those advocating American military intervention in Syria. They have been pushing for the administration to jump in on the side of the “rebels” all along — to arm them and abet them in the jihad against Assad. Their campaign has gotten precious little public support for a very simple reason: The American people are repulsed by the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda. For that reason, in addition to there being no national-security interest in supporting those forces, few American politicians dare make a full-throated case for doing so. Supporters either try to abet the “rebels” without talking about it (as Obama did before the 2012 election), or rationalize that they are abetting “the moderates” . . . and hope you’re too uninformed to know who the “moderates” are (as Obama has done since the 2012 election).

For pro-interventionists, then, Assad’s use of chemical weapons has been manna from heaven. It has enabled them to rivet the nation’s attention to Assad’s atrocious war-fighting methods, to the exclusion of such unsavory considerations as the guarantee that attacking Assad promotes al-Qaeda and the Brotherhood — to say nothing of the jihadists’ even more alarming pursuit of chemical-weapons capability.

Personally, I believe al-Qaeda is worse, by far, than the use of chemical weapons. And someone somewhere must agree with me since Congress, by something close to 535–0, voted to authorize the use of military force against al-Qaeda. No one, by the way, needed to twist arms or promise the American people we wouldn’t put “boots on the ground” to get that authorization. It was a slam-dunk because it was so patently in the national interest — even though it has meant a dozen years of war, with ground troops, missiles, drone strikes, indefinite detentions, thousands of casualties, the whole run of gore that war entails.

So by all means, let’s assume Assad has used chemical weapons on a small scale against other Syrians during a bloody civil war that, though undeniably awful, poses no threat to American national security.

By contrast, Assad’s “rebel” opposition, spearheaded by the anti-American Muslim Brotherhood, systematically uses al-Qaeda in its military operations — not one or two times, but every single day, and in virtually every attack that causes real damage to the regime.

Why is Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons worse than the rebels’ use of al-Qaeda?

Barky and his idiot junta have never fooled anyone.

Barky has never told the truth in his whole life … and he still hasn’t learned how to tell a believable lie. That’s how friggin inept and incompetent the retard is.

But, Barky and his junta don’t care since they can always fall back on their “RAAAAACIST!!!” scream and the Ed Asner skin-obsessed morons and the cowardly GOP fools will immediately act as if they believe the silliness and treat Barky as if he had more than two brain cells to rub together.

I suspect that might be the case whatever we do, if only to mock our incoherent response. Go big (which isn’t likely), and the rebels are emboldened to use it and blame it on the regime. Go “unbelievably small”, and the regime might use more knowing we’ve shot our wad, as it were.

That is the question.

Putin has boots on the ground: advisors, weapons techs for equipment the Syrians bought, trainers, etc.

So if you trust Putin on the deal with boots on the ground, not trusting him on ‘monitoring’ is a moot point. He has people there to start doing his dirty work and clean the fingerprints.

Bad news, that.

The United States has delivered a letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon providing its latest assessment of chemical weapons use in Syria.

Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations, has warned that a strike against Syria without a mandate from the UN Security Council would be illegal. His Special Envoy on Syria stated:

‘Syria is in very, very serious trouble, and we have been asked from time to time, ‘What about use of force by members of the international community? We say what international law says. And international law says that no country is allowed to take the law into their hands; they have to go to the Security Council.’

Only he’s already taken the deal, rube. Apparently Obama really is just that dumb in your estimation:

A State Department spokesman said the administration was giving the Russian proposal “a hard look” and Tony Blinken, one of Obama’s top advisers on national security issues, also noted the development in his remarks from the podium at the White House press briefing. A short time later, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton noted that she’d “just come from a meeting with President Obama where we discussed the latest developments” on Syria. Clinton then sounded an optimistic note about the Russian proposal and even allowed herself to imagine Assad’s compliance, saying it would be “an important step.”

Even as top administration officials offered caveats about these developments, their coordinated responses suggest the administration is laying the groundwork for declaring victory

Is it OK to postulate a Federal appointee’s coprophagia at a Syrian level of proof, is it necessary to have current incontrovertible evidence before that charge can be laid, or should we await further evidence?

What a faux pas. You need to wait at least a year after lying your ass off and destroying your professional credibility before doing it again.

The policy is to work with Turkey to hand Syria to the Muslim Brotherhood. It hasn’t worked yet in Egypt so we are trying again in Syria.

What a side show we have going on in front of our faces. The clowns have all been spilling out of the little car and jumping in front of the cameras. She’s just the latest member of the regime of the incompetent to appear and we’re supposed to believe the words coming out of her mouth because she’s got a title behind her name. The main event in this this circus to hell will be tonight. That our guy got played so easily on an international stage should be a glaring lesson to anyone on the right who wants to defeat our enemy and I’m not talkin’ ’bout the Rooskies.

Apparently the administration is willing to insult every American. Some may support the President but most don’t. This woman is the most exposed liar in history. Either this is the most evil or incompetent administration in history (probably both) I can not listen, will not listen any more. I encourage others to get your information from a non sycophantic source(s) and completely ignore the liar in chief.

So Assad may or may not have ordered the gassing of an Al-Queada strong point, and seeing how al-queada loves to use women and children as human shields. some women and children also died

meanwhile Obama still wants to give the 9/11 terrorists close air support in their attempts to overthrow a middle eastern govt by war.

say anyone notice Obama always sides with RADICAL ISLAM in these fights.
