Obama Weighing Military Options On Syria Over Chemical Weapons

From Associated Press:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House and its allies are weighing military options to secure Syria's chemical and biological weapons, after U.S. intelligence reports show the Syrian regime may be readying those weapons and may be desperate enough to use them, U.S. officials said Monday. 
President Barack Obama, in a speech at the National Defense University on Monday, pointedly warned Syrian President Bashar Assad not to use his arsenal. 
"Today I want to make it absolutely clear to Assad and those under his command: The world is watching," Obama said. "The use ofchemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. And if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons, there will be consequences and you will be held accountable." 
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, in Prague for meetings with Czech officials, said she wouldn't outline any specifics. 
"But suffice it to say, we are certainly planning to take action if that eventuality were to occur," Clinton said. 
Options now being considered range from aerial strikes to limited raids by regional forces to secure the stockpiles, according to one current U.S. official, and one former U.S. official, briefed on the matter. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the issue publicly. 
The administration remains reluctant to dispatch U.S. forces into Syria, but a U.S. special operations training team is in neighboring Jordan, teaching troops there how to safely secure such sites together with other troops from the region, the officials said.

I can just see the textbooks changing in the Muslim Middle East:

"The miracle from Allah for the armies of Mohammed when even the Great Satan came for the aid for the armies of Allah and prophet Mohammed!"

I just realized that the sentence is poorly written because I was trying to write it while doing something else (multitasking, yeah, can't do it). BUT I think it turned out to be proper for the idiots in the Middle East.

Why did these fools ever get involved in Syria? There's only one answer: to help the Brotherhood. Fools!

Fools? No I think they're executing it well. No one in the US cares. Use the US military to aid the terrorists (Muslim Brotherhood) in the name of a humanitarian cause. Again fools? Far from it.

"The people" are the real fools here. Gotta commend Branco Bama and his cronies. They way they presented everything they wanted to achieve only people with intelligence would have said anything against it.

People compare Obama to Carter. I don't think Carter ever came close to achieving what Branco Bama has achieved. Carter has one half-assed effort at legitimizing the mullahs under his belt. Branco Bama has put into motion the revival of the Caliphate.

I will say this though, a Caliphate in the Middle East should get these chimps off our backs for a little while. I also, at one point, made the mistake of thinking that the chaos of Islam in the newly created Caliphate might wake some of the idiots on the left up. But I think it is more likely that these idiots will grow evermore complacent. Evermore part of the Caliphate. Evermore hateful of the (far superior) Western culture.

We can all sit here and predict the individual events that may come to pass; and frankly, with the Middle East, it ain't all that hard to predict what may happen. Muslims will be Muslims, no matter how moderate they may appear, and so they always act in a way that's easily predictable. However, we really have no idea, and can't really have any idea how things may play out in the big scheme of things.

Caliphate composed of Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen, Syria, Gaza, West Bank, and soon, Jordan, and Lebanon (to some extent). What happens to Israel? What does the world do when Saudis (increasingly in favor of the Brotherhood) stand up against their royal family? And eventually, how far does the rest of the world bend forward to be f***** by Muslims just because they have oil and the West refuses to drill its own? And for how long?

There are a lot of questions and a lot of uncertainties...
