White House Hints At Use Of "Military Force" In Syria

Tyler Durden's picture




 

And it was shaping up like your typical boring, noonish "gold-smackdown-so-JPM-can-refill-its-vault" Friday. Trust the White House to come out, guns blazing, false flags waving, and make those selling hard assets into the weekend think twice:

  • US PURSUING "DEFINITIVE" EVIDENCE ON SYRIAN CHEMICAL WEAPONS
  • WHITE HOUSE SAYS OPTIONS FOR DEALING WITH SYRIA USE OF CHEMICAL WEAPONS INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT EXCLUSIVE TO, MILITARY FORCE

Well, you know what they say: seek and ye shall find. Just ask Bush.

As for what the White House failed to mention is that the other options are, well, military force.

The Russians have a naval facility in Tartus, Syria. Mostly for resupply and maintenance. It's the only Mediterranean facility they control. Wouldn't Putin have something to say here. This is geo-political chess and nothing more. Our administration hasn't the moral compass to be concerned about chemical weapons usage.

You're thinking too much. I bet Syria has a bunch of those "mobile chemical weapons labs" like Colin Powell told us about with Iraq. And there's probably top secret video evidence that we'll never see, like with the bombing in Boston. We'll just have to take the government's word for it.

Above all, this is not a time for asking questions. This is a time for Chinese-made flag pins, "U-S-A!" chants, and blind obedience to authority.

Take it easy. Zionists and their American lackeys can only fight cowards (Saddam, Qaddafi, etc.,).  In Syria it might become very serious. Remember neither Saddam, Qaddafi, nor Serbia fought back attacking American bases in the region or EU capitals. Do you expect Iran will behave the same? One thing more, a new NATO instigated civil war is just started in Iraq.

Remember N. Korea telling to Obama and the rest: fuck off or else? You know the rest of the story.

Another step to Iran.

The boston bombing was allowed to move forward by CIA , who got info from the Chechens previously.  The bombing was a warning to Obama to fall in line. If not there will be more small scale bombing and his presidency would be a disaster. Of course they can't let Obama go the way of JFK for fear of sparking riots.

sure enough just days after the bombing, there is evidence of chemical weapons use from Syria. Take down Syria, wait for Republican president to take down Iran in 2016.

 

How does this hypothesis sound?

No matter how bad this guy is, may be, perceived, is or is not the Anti-Christ, a born again Muslim, non-citizen, false SS #, etc., etc., conspiracy theory shit real or not... none of that makes a true difference.

The simple fact is that no matter reality or perception, the Republican party in the form of the Republican party that had its chance with Ron Paul, fucking blew it, disintegrated the last residue of hope for a broader appeal, has absolutely no fucking chance other than from the Neo-Cons who are A-OK with anything as long as its white Anglo-Saxon, straight, married, Protestant, male, etc.

I'm in the same quandry.  The RNC is as criminal as the DNC.  The scales fell from my eyes when I watched their takedown of Ron Paul in the 2012 convention.  Changing the rules, stealing his delegates, and then just shutting down the opposition was disgusting.  Watching Maddow and Jon Stewart point out the MSM treating RP like the 13th floor of a building was the true revelation.  The fix was in.  There is no real choice.  It's all bullshit.  The Republic died long ago.

Gosh, we really need a war to turn things around. The problem with Obama is he blows things up, but does not fix them, like in Libya. So he's working on only half the equation.

Bush knew better, you blow things up and then get Bechtel and all to fix things up. Note how much higher our economic performance was during the Iraq War when that was running hot. It certainly is not a coincidence that our present economic difficulties coincide with the draw down. The problem with Afghanistan is that there is nothing to blow up, so there isn't much to fix in the aftermath, so it's a poor economic return.

But Syria has a decent infrastructure - on par with Iraq, so it will have a higher economic yield to blow it up and rebuild it. If we can make this into a global war, well, that would be a bonaza for us all, but we have to remember the fix it part after the blow it up phase.

I hope we don't muck this up.

Whatever those islands are the the Chinese and Japanese both want doesn't really play with in the US since no one can even find Kansas on a map. We thought maybe some people have heard of Syria, especially since it's so close to Cyprus which was all over the news about a month ago. Of course most people are too stupid to remember what color shirt they wore 2 days ago so we're really just about out of ideas. You got anything?

I don't know what you guys are bitching about.

Since the oil shock during Nixon times, this has been the business model of USA concluding with Carter Doctrine:

 

DO ANYTHING TO MAKE SURE ENERGY IS COMING TO US AND WORLD TRADE IS GUARANTEED.

 

The problem with Obama is that he has NOT started a new war.

Lybia was not Obama's war, it was a European and Canadian under NATO war, but not Obama's.

 

All president have started new wars. This one will be no exception.

The use of oil as a justification for war is a red herring. Otherwise the US would have left Saddam alone. He kept the oil cheap. Gold always has been, and always will be the real reason behind wars.

Repost:

Syrian government's capture of town a 'big blow to the opposition,' group says. cutting an arms route for rebels trying to topple President Bashar Assad's regime, state media and activists said Thursday.

&

Two Syrian officials denied Friday that government forces had used chemical weapons against rebels, Damascus' first response to U.S. assertions that it had. Sharif Shehadeh, a Syrian lawmaker, said the Syrian army "can win the war with traditional weapons" and has no need for chemical weapons. Shehadeh called the U.S. claims "lies" and likened them to false accusations that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction - a claim U.S. policymakers had used to justify the invasion of that country in 2003.

 

&

 

Assertions of chemical weapon use in Syria by Western and Israeli officials citing photos, sporadic shelling and traces of toxins do not meet the standard of proof needed for a U.N. team of experts waiting to gather their own field evidence. Weapons inspectors will only determine whether banned chemical agents were used in the two-year-old conflict if they are able to access sites and take soil, blood, urine or tissue samples and examine them in certified laboratories.
