The end justifies the means with these twerps. In other words, they don't care how, as long as they get what they want at the end of the day.
In August 2012, Obama declared that Syria would cross a red line if Assad resorted to moving or using chemical weapons.
Yesterday in Sweden - on his way to Russia for the G20 - he declared that he hadn't drawn the red line, the WORLD had drawn the line.
Here he is drawing the line, before he's un-drawn the line:
However, someone forgot to tell Secretary of State John Kerry, because 8 hours after Obama said what he did, he says this:
See what a coward Obama is? He's a lying POS. All so that he can re-write history and distance himself from the corner he's painted himself into. HE was the one who set the rules for military action in Syria, now he wants us to believe that the world had set the rules instead.
Bustard. Weak-kneed coward.
Unfortunately for him, however, the little thing called the internet these days happens to save exactly what was said, by whom, and on what day.
So, just who does Obama think he's kidding here?
In the meantime, a few other "conspiracy" theories have been unveiled. Qatar has already spent $3 BILLION funding Al-Qaeda in Syria. Saudi is also backing the rebels. Why?
Well, Qatar has gas and wants to pump it to Europe, but needs a pipeline through Syria. Russia has gas and doesn't want Qatar to supply Europe.
Saudi Arabia wants oil to remain dominant so wants to protect and control the entire region - and also wants to build a pipeline through Syria.
So both Qatar and Saudi Arabia want their own puppets running Syria.
In contrast, Obama seems to want to start some drive-by-shooting in Syria to hide what's going on in the USA. His economy....or rather, his non-economy; the job stagnation; higher unemployment; tanking housing market; de-valued dollar; record debt; debt ceiling approaching (even though the debt has remained frozen for weeks now to avoid voting on the debt ceiling), etc. Then of course there's his unpopular Obamacare, which is going to be costing families thousands MORE for healthcare than what they were paying before....even though Obama promised costs would reduce.
Obamacare is nothing but more government control over people's lives and redistributing wealth from the middle class to the non-workers, thereby destroying the middle class. It was never about providing healthcare for all as over 30 million people will still be left without health insurance.
There was nothing wrong with the previous legislation which a strong economy and stopping illegal immigration couldn't fix.
Add to the mix the NSA spying on America people; the IRS scandal (government targeting conservatives through the tax office); and Benghazi, which is coming up for the first anniversary on the 11th Sep.
See why Obama is desperate to turn the focus away from his rubbish presidency and muddy the waters with military action in Syria? Bonus is that he gets to help his Muslim Brotherhood pals at the same time.
And so Obama is off to the G20 in Russia, where Putin is waiting for him with closed arms. Putin today said that John Kerry was lying about Syria using chemical weapons. Putin also gave NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden asylum so he's been rubbing Obama's face in his power. Seeing Putin greet Obama is going to be pretty funny.
And Obama's snub to Putin?? He's going to be meeting with Gay activists in Russia instead of meeting with Putin privately. Yeah Barack, you show Putin who's boss! Go fraternise with the homosexual lobby instead of trying to resolve your differences with Putin! What a man, what a sad, pathetic joke.
President Obama blamed the entire world Wednesday for his decision to engage in military action in Syria. “I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line,” he said.
Obama went on to list the Syria Accountability Act and the Chemical Weapons Convention, and others have listed the Geneva Protocol as a way to remove blame from Obama.
But the “red line” phrase, that’s all Obama.
Thanks to a little thing called the Internet, we can look back at comments Obama made on August 20, 2012. On that date, speaking at a press conference, Obama said “A red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus. That would change my equation.”
But Obama wasn’t done trying to reassign blame. “My credibility is not on the line,” he said also. “International credibility is on the line.”
Obama made the claims during a press conference in Stockholm, Sweden, where he’s meeting with Swedish Prime Minister Frederik Reinfeldt.
