Iran crossed Obama’s ‘Red Line’ a while back.
Syria just did the same thing.
Congressional Republicans said Sunday Obama must stick with his vow to take action should Syria cross a “red line” by using chemical weapons on citizens, amid such mounting evidence, but cautioned against sending in troops.
……Arizona Sen. John McCain has been among congressional Republicans most critical of the president’s stance on Syria.
He argued on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the red line strategy has given Assad a “green light” to do almost everything up to that point — including the use of missiles, helicopter attacks and other civilian strikes that have resulted in “atrocities on a scale that we have not seen in a long, long time.”
However, he joined a bipartisan call this weekend against sending U.S. troops into Syria.
“The worst thing we could do is put boots on the ground,” McCain said.
Aside from that, what do you plan on doing, McCain? Assad is smack in the middle of an Islamofascist cesspool teaming with Al Qaeda, Taliban, the Muslim Brotherhood, and gawd knows how many other muslim terrorist groups. Neither he nor the terrorists could give a rats ass about how you feel.
He and fellow Hill lawmakers fear the chemical weapons could be more dangerous in the hands of U.S. enemies or those who might overthrow Assad. And he joined in calls for the United States to be part of an international force to safeguard the weapons.
……Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina, also said the U.S. could safeguard the weapons without a ground force. But he said the weapons must be protected from getting into the hands of enemies.
Too late. Chemical, nuclear, and biological weapons are already in the hands of America’s enemies.
“The president has laid down the line, and it can’t be a dotted line,” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., told ABC’s “This Week.” “It can’t be anything other than a red line.”
U.S. officials said last week that the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad probably used chemical weapons twice in March, amid a two-year civil war in which more than 70,000 people have been killed and hundreds of thousands more displaced.
“For America to sit on the sidelines and do nothing is a huge mistake,” Georgia Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss told CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
“Laid down the line”…that’s hilarious. Watch Obama send a strongly worded letter in bold caps. That’ll scare ’em.
When Egypt went full blown Islamofascist, Obama congratulated his Muslim Brotherhood pals for the coup. And of course, we see how well he handled the massacre of Americans in Benghazi. He’s a Dhimmi and a fuckin’ pussy. Don’t expect much.
