Obama’s War Is A Farce

September 29, 2015 by

0

By Andrew Bolt ~ Barack Obama’s war against the Islamic State and other jihadists is a sick joke. U.S. defense officials have confirmed that military equipment issued by the United States to Syrian rebel fighters has been funneled to an al Qaeda offshoot, raising new questions about the ways in which the Obama administration is […]

September 23, 2015 by

1

By Amir Taheri ~ After weeks of dancing around the issue, the Obama administration has expressed concern about “heightened military activity” by Russia in Syria. But what if we are facing something more than “heightened military activity?” What if Moscow is preparing to give Syria the full Putin treatment? For years, Russia has been helping […]

By Andrew Bolt ~ Vladimir Putin has completely outplayed Barack Obama in Syria. Charles Krauthammer: Once again, President Obama and his foreign policy team are stumped.

The Syrian Rubics Cube

September 30, 2014 by

0

By Alan Caruba ~ One has to have some sympathy for those in the CIA or the White House folks charged with telling the President what has been going on in Syria since 2011 when the opposition to Bashar al-Assad’s dictatorship turned into a fighting war. It must have looked and felt like playing with […]

Syrian Islamists Spread Terror Network Into Iraq

June 14, 2014 by

By Peter Brookes ~ Earlier this week on these very pages I warned about the rise of violent Islamist extremism, not exclusively but especially in Syria. Unfortunately, in just a few short days, the situation has gotten worse. I’m thinking about Iraq. On Tuesday, Iraq’s second-largest city, Mosul, was overrun by an al-Qaeda “offshoot,” the […]

Iran Is Now Obama’s BFF

December 9, 2013 by

By Alan Caruba ~ News about events in Syria took a nosedive the moment the Russians stepped in to take on the job of destroying Bashar Assad’s arsenal of poison gas. It’s not as if Syrians aren’t still dying. One of the few reliable journalistic enterprises, The Wall Street Journal, put Syria on its front […]

The Middle East’s Peace Of The Grave

By Alan Caruba ~ After both great wars of the last century nations got together to create organizations that would ensure that large conflicts would not occur again. After World War I, it was the League of Nations. When Woodrow Wilson (who was reelected in 1916 after promising to keep the U.S. out of the […]

Taranto: Reporters Look Like ‘Obama’s Pet Hamsters’ In Avoiding His Strange Denial Of A ‘Red Line’

September 6, 2013 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ NewsBusters wasn’t the only site collecting strange media treatment of Obama’s strange denial that he’d ever set a “red line” against Syria’s use of chemical weapons. James Taranto at The Wall Street Journal wrote on Thursday that “The fierce watchdogs of the press, confronted with this brazen falsehood, show themselves once […]

The United Kingdom Stands Taller In The World Today

September 6, 2013 by

By Daniel Hannan ~ You won’t be reading this in many places, but here goes. Parliament’s rejection of military action in Syria has been good for David Cameron and bad for Ed Miliband. More to the point, it has been good for our standing in the world. Good for David Cameron? How can I possibly […]

Why Syria?

September 5, 2013 by

3

By Alan Caruba ~ Conservatives are asking themselves why liberals, so opposed to Bush’s war against Iraq and its dictator, Saddam Hussein, are so hell bent to get into a war in Syria and its dictator, Bashar al-Assad? The President’s assertion of a short attack has been called “the Goldilocks” approach to war, offered as […]

What The Hell Is Going On?

September 5, 2013 by

1

By Dr. Michael Ledeen ~ So far as we know, most everyone in the government was expecting the bombing would start on Saturday afternoon, Washington, D.C., time.  Government officials, above all those with expertise in military operations, were told to cancel their Labor Day vacations and show up for overtime work.  No golf for them!  […]

Obama’s Goals In Syria Remain Unclear

September 5, 2013 by

0

By Brian Slattery ~ Red lines work only when they are red. This is one of the foreign policy lessons President Obama has not learned. The President has had to redefine what his “red line” on chemical weapons use constituted in Syria and has not explained a clear plan for America’s involvement in the conflict. […]

Obama Vetoed Israeli Strike On Iran’s Nukes Last Year But He Pushes Syria Strike With Same Argument He Ignores On Iran

September 4, 2013 by

1

By Pamela Geller ~ More revelations of Obama’s mindless meandering and lethal irrationality. The fact is Iran is the real problem. Syria is a sideshow. And yet: “President Obama stopped Israel from launching an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities a year ago, according to the then head of Israel’s National Security Council, Gen. Giora Eiland. […]

The Arabs Are The New Jews

September 4, 2013 by

1

By Alan Caruba ~ The debate about whether or when to inflict some “punishment” on Syria’s Bashar al-Assad put me in mind of the run-up to World War II when the U.S. State Department was reluctant to admit German Jews seeking sanctuary and, after the D-Day invasion, the discovery of the Nazi death camps where […]

Obama Gets ‘Syrias’ On Syria

By Edward Cline ~ You really wish you had the credentials and clearance to attend a White House press conference, indoors or in the Rose Garden, and have the chance to pose this question to President Barack Obama: “Sir: Why don’t you just go on an extended golfing tour for the rest of your term, […]

Obama Punts To Congress On Syria

September 1, 2013 by

0

By James Phillips ~ Having carelessly established a “red line” for intervening in the Syrian civil war without a clear strategy or appropriate course to protect U.S. interests, the President has now dumped the whole mess in the lap of Congress. It is appropriate for the President to consult Congress, but he has a tall […]

The Syrian Scenario

August 31, 2013 by

By Alan Caruba ~ Arabs are particularly fond of dates with historical or religious significance. Recall the Yom Kippur War in 1973, the fourth Arab-Israeli war led by a coalition of Egypt and Syria. Like earlier wars, it ended in defeat for the Arabs. It happens that sundown on Wednesday, September 4, marks the beginning […]

What To Do In Syria

August 30, 2013 by

By Amy Payne ~ Reports are rampant that the Obama Administration will call for U.S. missile strikes against the regime in Syria at any time now. That country is embroiled in a civil war, with opposition forces fighting dictator Bashar al-Assad. The U.S. has interests to protect in the region, but becoming directly involved in […]

An Unconstitutional Military Strike

August 29, 2013 by

3

By Alan Caruba ~ I don’t know why the White House doesn’t just send Syria’s Bashar al-Assad a map of where it intends to attack with Tomahawk and other missiles. The bottom line, however, is that this much heralded military adventure is unconstitutional. The President has no authority to initiate the use of the military […]

By Alan Caruba ~ After the state of Israel declared its independence and sovereignty in 1948 it was attacked by its Arab “neighbors” repeatedly until they concluded that was a bad idea.
