Syria and Other Unlearned Lessons:COLONEL KENNETH ALLARD (US ARMY, RET.)

http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/detail/syria-and-other-unlearned-lessons It is autumn’s first festival of incompetence. Like the President-in-council surrounded by high-level blockheads vainly searching for their first clue. Like the Joint Chiefs Chairman insisting that more delays in the already belated US response to Syrian provocation will not present any intelligence or operational problems.  He would be joking except that the administration’s […]

THE CASE FOR OBAMA’S MISSING PANTS: DANIEL GREENFIELD

http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/ There isn’t much enthusiasm for Obama’s plan for Syria. A lot of the Senate would like Obama to go bigger. A lot of the House would like Obama to just go. Even the experts have trouble explaining how and why the attacks will do any good. The debate has congealed down to credibility. The […]

EUROPE’S WOULD BE MASTERS: BRUCE BAWER

http://frontpagemag.com/2013/bruce-bawer/europes-would-be-masters/print/ It’s getting pathetic. Or is farcical the proper word? What to call it when European Union politicians, functionaries, and assorted publicists, promoters, and hangers-on throw themselves into a full-scale campaign to transform the continent’s peasants into enthusiastic boosters of the whole elite EU project – only to fail ignominiously? And then, not having learned […]

NO TO WAR IN SYRIA: ROBERT SPENCER

http://frontpagemag.com/2013/robert-spencer/no-to-war-in-syria-2/print/ A Senate panel has voted to authorize Barack Obama to use military force in Syria. This is a disaster in the making. Just as in Afghanistan, Obama has no goal, no plan for victory. He said that the military strikes in Syria would not be directed toward removing Bashar Assad, but then he said […]

Al-Qaeda Vows to Slaughter Christians After U.S. ‘Liberates’ Syria: Raymond Ibrahim

http://frontpagemag.com/2013/raymond-ibrahim/al-qaeda-vows-to-slaughter-christians-after-u-s-liberates-syria/

Will this be a U.S. Assisted genocide?

While U.S. leaders continue pushing for war against the Syrian government, today “Al-Qaeda-linked rebels,”reports AP, “launched an assault on a regime-held Christian mountain village in the densely populated west of Syria and new clashes erupted near the capital, Damascus, on Wednesday… In the attack on the village of Maaloula, rebels commandeered a mountaintop hotel and nearby caves and shelled the community below, said a nun, speaking by phone from a convent in the village. She spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.”

Arabic news agency Al Hadath gives more information concerning this latest terror attack on Syria’s Christians, specifically how the al-Qaeda linked rebels “terrorized the Christians, threatening to be avenged on them after the triumph of the revolution.”

Thus al-Qaeda terrorists eagerly await U.S. assistance against the Syrian government, so they can subjugate if not slaughter Syria’s Christians, secularists, and non-Muslims — even as the Obama administration tries to justify war on Syria by absurdly evoking the “human rights” of Syrians on the one hand, and lying about al-Qaeda’s presence in Syria on the other.

JONAH GOLDBERG: O’S REDLINE PROBLEMS AND OURS

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/357563/obamas-redline-problem-and-ours-jonah-goldberg Obama’s statement just now about how it’s not his red line will get recycled a lot over the next few days. He said “I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line.” He also said, “My credibility is not on the line. International credibility is on the line.” If you actually watch Obama’s […]

ROBERT ELLIS: A HOT TURKISH AUTUMN

Egyptian Media Portray Obama as Satan: Raymond Ibrahim

Popular and widely read Egyptian newspaper Al Wafd published the above picture today portraying U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama as Satan himself. The unflattering picture has been making the rounds on Facebook in the Middle East and, according to Al Wafd, is representative of the hatred growing numbers of people in the region have for the American president, thanks to his staunch and unwavering support for Islamists and jihadiis — whether in Nigeria, Libya, Egypt, or Syria — even as they terrorize, murder, rape, and burn down Christian churches, that is, even as they engage in diabolical activities.
