Al Qaeda backs Libyan rebels! Therefore Obama fights on behalf of al Qaeda! Hurray! NATO coalition falls apart! Any wonder why? (Must be a record for the shortest coalition in history!)
ITEM: Turkish media reports plane forced to land in southeast Turkey carried rocket launchers, mortars, rifles and explosive materials
Weapons were found on an Iranian cargo plane forced to land in southeast Turkey on Saturday, Turkish media reported Tuesday.
According to reports, the arms plane left Tehran with military ammunition for Syria. Several crates containing weapons and ammunition were removed from the aircraft.
First question: how much military material gets to Syria from Iran every month? How much is shipped from Iran to Hezbollah in Lebanon, and to Hamas in Gaza? Answer: tons.
Second question: why do they need all those weapons? Answer: to wipe Israel off the map.
Recall: In 2009 Obama began lifting sanctions on Syria?
Yes. The President was making nice with the tyrant/terrorist Bashar Assad, president of Syria. Obama thought he could encourage Assad to stop dancing with Iran and rather lend an ear to music floating across the waters from D.C.
Obama allowed Syria to start servicing commercial aircraft. Never mind that Syrian commercial planes had been used to transport weapons to terrorists.
Did you know: Our government designated Syria a state sponsor of terrorism in 1979, the first foreign power so designated by the U.S. That designation has never been lifted, for good reason, yet an American President lifted sanctions independently and arbitrarily? Did he think doing so would encourage Iran to make peace?
Obama’s effort to make nice with Assad apparently backfired. Syria and Iran have only escalated, predictably.
WASHINGTON (Agence France-Presse, 5.3.10) — President Obama on Monday renewed sanctions against Syria for a year, accusing Damascus of supporting terrorist groups and pursuing missile programs and weapons of mass destruction. (Will Obama, like Bush, ask Congress to authorize the use of force to protect the world from madmen?)
The Pattern: Obama ventures into the world with his ethereal visions of how to make things work, visions instilled by Harvard and Columbia and Occidental and Ayers and Davis and Alinksy and Wright and Farrakhan and al Mansour and Khalidi. Those errant and unrealistic visions run head long into reality, and fail miserably, as all hallucinations must when reality descends. He is then forced to circle back to the beginning, having accomplished nothing, other than wasting time and causing damage.
- Gitmo: close/don’t close
- Iraq: surge/don’t surge – stay/pull out
- Government finances: spend/cut/spend/tax/forget cuts, absent in budget debate
- ObamaCare: force unethically against will of the people, worst legislation in history
- Global warming/cap ‘n trade/the entire green agenda: total fraud
- Lift/impose sanctions Syria
- Talk/don’t talk Iran
- Fight/Don’t fight Afghanistan
- Fight/Don’t fight al Qaeda
- The Marxist Utopia fails again
- Moral relativism is killing us and Obama promotes it
- Public employee unions are bankrupting the states: Obama promotes them
- Schools are failing: Obama prevents vouchers for us, then sends his kids to private school
- Terrorists escalate: Obama capitulates
- Libya? WTH?
Meanwhile, Japan could use a hand right now. Where is our President? On another junket squandering taxpayer resources entertaining his friends and indulging himself.
Israel is under attack, again. Where is our President?
The American people are under a great deal of pressure thanks to a crumbling economy brought by Obamanomics. Where is our President?
The only logical conclusion is the free world no longer has a leader, and therefore, the free world is extraordinarily vulnerable.
