Congressional Veto to Syria Intervention Would Be a Victory for Obama, Not a Fiasco

If politicians would tell the truth…Clinton would have said: “I had sex with that woman”, Berlusconi would have been convicted to lifelong in prison a dozen times by now, and Obama would have admitted he actually does not want to intervene in Syria.

Of course he claims he does, as the world was shocked by the horrendous images of the chemical attack on 21 August – a ‘moral obscenity’ as Kerry put it. Obama’s previous declarations about ‘the Red Line’ that Assad cannot pass – namely the use or movement of chemical weapons. If Assad does cross this line, ‘grave consequences’ would follow.

A Fairy Tale For Syria

“It is regrettable, Ladies and Gentlemen, that seated amongst us today in this room, are representatives of countries that have the blood of Syrians on their hands, countries that have exported terrorism along with clemency for the perpetrators, as if it was their God given right to determine who will go to heaven and who will go to hell.” – Walid Al-Moallem, Syrian Foreign Minister.

Geneva II is off to a rocky start. The absence of Iran looms over the conference and the Syrian regime sounds far from conciliatory.The words of the Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Al-Moallem, blaming several countries for having blood on their hands, sound unbelievably hypocritical considering the hands of the Assad regime are bloody as hell. Human Right groups have documented the various forms of extreme violence and forced disappearances that even increased since the international outrage over the chemical attack in August, and they are pointing fingers?
