Great Move Obama
President Obama outfoxed the chicken hawks and phony patriots Saturday with his announcement that he was going to let the US Congress vote on his proposal to attack Syria for gassing its own people. It was a great political move because the people urging him to attack were not honest brokers in the first place,. Let's face it, do you think John McCain and the other defense industry lackeys give a damn about dead Syrian Muslims (men, women or children)? Do you think the so-called libertarian fool, Senator Rand Paul, is anti-war and anti-interventionist. The idiot doesn't even know where Syria is located and surely his stupid, racist Tea Party supporters don't.
President Obama talked about the moral imperative to attack a monster like Assad for gassing his own. He explained about the useless United Nations which has as much moral fiber as a rock. Their inability to act on any crisis is exacerbated by the Russians and Chinese who certainly lack moral fiber and those two countries' direct financial and military support for Syria.
Yes, President Obama made the right decision. He was being urged to act by dishonest brokers claiming their outrage at Assad but really echoing their political donors wishes. But his decision will be even more revealing when the American people and the rest of the world will see just how hypocritical and cowardly the US Congress is on the issue. One of two results are possible of course. One, they will vote to approve Obama's plan to attack Syria with so many limitations that the plan itself is not feasible thereby increasing the chances of failure and further involvement. Which is what the GOP wants because fighting wars benefits their defense industry benefactors and they don't really want Obama to succeed anyway. Second, they will not approve a plan because it does not go far enough into getting us into another war in the Middle East. The main one complaining about an inadequate plan will be John McCain and his "bitch" Lindsey Graham who has always wanted a war against Iran, anyway.
