'Bout that Syria thing...

In light of my post below, why does this headline give me a mental image of France, sitting in the front row, braces on their teeth, with their greasy hair and pimply complexion, hand waving wildly in the air saying "Ooo! Ooo! Me! Me! Pick me!" and the President is looking out over the UN class, saying "Anyone? Anyone?"

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Thursday prepared for the possibility of launching unilateral American military action against Syria within days as Britain opted out in a stunning vote by Parliament. Facing skepticism at home, too, the administration shared intelligence with lawmakers aimed at convincing them the Syrian government used chemical weapons against its people and must be punished.

Despite roadblocks in forming an international coalition, Obama appeared undeterred and advisers said he would be willing to retaliate against Syria on his own.



Nobody seems very interested in my theory that President Obama’s forthcoming attack is mostly about President Assad making Obama look like a jerk. The Chicago-style narcissist in Obama now must do something vindictive to restore his piece of mind before the world realizes even more so what he really is as both a leader and a human being. Of course, having hoisted so many on their own petards, especially his predecessor, that’s turning out to be a little bit trickier than his cabal pre-imagined.

I’ve pretty much come to the conclusion that his biological parents did the right thing in separating themselves from young Barack. I don’t even think that a Jesuit education could have saved him. Or, that Austrian-speaking doctor back in old Vienna of a century or so ago, Freud something or other.

As to the "solo" part, it still looks like Les Francais want in and every operation needs a bit of catering, non?

And, lastly, has anyone heard from the accounting department? The last word I got was that all that was left in our treasuries was a bunch of "We Owe Whos".
Plaigarizing/recycling the comment I posted at SKK,

"The possibility occurs to me that this could be just the latest iteration of a Cloward-Piven-Alinsky variant of wag the dog. So what if the scandals/outrages are about you? Maybe even better if they are. Keep them queued up and coming so that each new one serves as a distraction to keep congress and any other interested parties from having time to finish investigating and prosecuting any of the priors. Let’s see, we have Black Panther voter intimidation, Fast and Furious, Bradley Manning, IRS targeting conservatives, Benghazi, Solyndra, scrutiny of AP reporters, NSA/Snowden, gratuitously insert yourself into a few real tragedies like Aurora, Sandy Hook, throw in a few media circuses provided by a helpful media like Jody Arias, the Zimmerman trial (insert yourself ad lib), blade runner, it gets to where few can even remember what order they happened in and meantime you make your tries on the big pieces like Obamacare, gun control, amnesty, maybe you won’t get them all through on the first try, but maybe you’ll get some of them . . . and . . . oh, SQUIRREL!!"

In this case, the immediate purpose of the distraction may be to pass amnesty, which would change voter demographics massively in favor of the Democratic party.

I would add that Obama's Syrian adventure would also be another bite of the transnational, sovereignty-reducing, Responsibility to Protect (R2P) apple.  Inching American thought along the proverbial "Road to Serfdom" so that today's internationalists can select for us who is to be saved and who is to suffer the weeping and the gnashing of teeth, at our taxpaying expense.
