Let's be clear, Obama's 'Syria Strike' is 'nothing more than political cover for being accused of doing nothing'Topics: Political News and commentaries
That bears repeating; all the BS and posturing aside,Obama's of 'Syria Strike' is nothing more than political cover for being accused of doing nothing. And should you doubt for a nanosecond that this is the case, look no further than what a U.S. official briefed on the military options being considered by President Obama told the Los Angeles Times:
"... the White House is seeking a strike on Syria 'just muscular enough not to get mocked.'"From The Hill (below emphasis - mine):
[...] "They are looking at what is just enough to mean something, just enough to be more than symbolic," the official told the paper, giving credence to similar reports describing a limited military strike in the aftermath of last week's alleged chemical weapons attack.More here.
NBC News reported earlier this week that the administration would launch three days of missile strikes, while CNN cited a senior administration official saying that the White House wanted to conclude any action before the president departs for the G-20 summit next week.
The New York Times also reported that the initial target list drafted by the Pentagon had fewer than 50 sites. The Pentagon has moved four U.S. Navy destroyers off the Syrian coast, which can launch low-altitude cruise missiles at selected sites. ...
What the L.A. Times is reporting is backed up by yesterday's Fox News report that any U.S. strike against Syria is "likely to last hours not days"and probably would not come before the British Parliament votes on military action.
In other words, we're likely to see indisputably nothing more than a token response to Syria's having crossed Obama's "red line."
Going by what we've seen during his entire time in office, it appears that every decision Barack Obama makes is centered on and based upon politics ... he seems incapable of making a substantive judgement or decision about any issue. With him, everything is all about covering his a**, pushing forward his ideological agenda (which includes helping and protecting the Muslim Brotherhood and Muslim causes) and how it benefits him politically.
