The world set a red line. So when I said that my calculus would be altered by chemical weapons, which the overall consensus of humanity says is wrong – that’s not something I just made up. I didn’t pluck it out of thin air. My credibility isn’t on the line. The international community’s credibility is on the line. — President Barack Obama 2012: Barack Obama ‘red line’ warning over chemical weapons in Syria As usual, we all heard it wrong and it’s OUR fault. http://ommag.blogspot.ca/ OMMAG That’s the thing about pathological liars ….. GoodMojo1 Does anyone know of another human being in the history of a free America, who can lie, who can fail, who can lie about failing without ever failing to lie, and can do so without scrutiny, challenge, or rebuke from people who suffer under the combined weight of them all? Daaamn!!! aelfheld Words. Just words. nosredna1 Calculus? jb 1. Civil war in Nigeria. thousands of Christians dead as churches and homes bombed. Crickets from Barky. 2. Civil unrest in Egypt: thousands of Christians raped, killed, beaten, and property damaged by Muz Bro’s (Barky’s guys). Crickets from Barky. 3. Hundreds dead in Iran during the Green Revolution. Not crickets this time: decision for no action. n.n We all thought Libya had moved on – it has, but into lawlessness and ruin Obama’s credibility was manufactured through a minority consensus. n.n It is principally his ego that is on the line. Let’s review why any pretense to humanitarian concerns is strictly a lie. 1. Arms sales to a drug cartel, which were subsequently used to murder thousands of Mexicans and at least one American. 2. Unprovoked, undeclared war against Libya to remove a benign despot, which resulted in the release of a large cache of weapons to the black market and terrorists. 3. Support of Arab extremists in Egypt in order to remove a contained despot, which resulted in thousands of people murdered and raped, and extensive property destruction. 4. Progressive incursions into Pakistan, repeatedly violating their sovereignty. 5. Support of Arab extremists and terrorists, including Al Qaeda, in Syria’s “civil” war. 6. Premature withdrawal of a stabilizing force in Iraq. 7. Incompetent ROE in Afghanistan, and other places where Americans “serve” and their allies naively follow. 8. Fomenting ethnic division in America (e.g. Martin/Zimmerman or Black/White/Hispanic). Yes, it’s not his credibility on the line, because he has no credibility whatsoever. Keep watching the video and practicing you chip shot, Obama. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. As for the use of chemical weapons in Syria, a preponderance of circumstantial evidence cannot be used to justify a war. Also, the Obama doctrine, which is the Clinton doctrine on steroids, of lobbing missiles and dropping bombs will not aid in humanitarian efforts. In fact, it is most likely to provoke a response by former “allies”, of the kind we witnessed on 9/11 or in Bengazi. Tallyman The false messiah, Barack, proclaims his power as the Highest Judge of all Humanity to exclusively decide the facts and the law and to execute his judgment with death upon many Syrians with indiscriminate bombs. The mad Barack excuses his prior lie by proclaiming his red line is humanity’s red line. The fools are those who still believe his lies. His narcissism has progressed to megalomania. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megalomania Richard White “Speechless” doesn’t get halfway there.
