Dodgeball

Mr. Blameless

After shooting his mouth off for weeks over the poison gas in Syria situation, after drawing umpteen red lines in the sand, after being Mr. Tough Guy who was going to Punish His Enemies and Do What Is Right even if he had to Ignore Congress, even if he had to Go It Alone ... Oblameless, now that he’s found out that the UK, France, Germany, and everyone and anyone else out there who can actually drop bombs or shoot off missiles wants no part in this ... now he’s going to let Congress make the decision. You see, that way, if THEY say NO, it ain’t his fault.

What a two-faced chicken shit we have for a pResident.



President Obama announced Saturday that he has concluded the United States should take military action against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his regime for using chemical weapons on civilians, but will first seek authorization from Congress.

“This menace must be confronted,” Obama said of the Assad regime’s alleged strike, speaking from the Rose Garden.

The announcement, though, sets up a timetable for debate that could drag on for weeks.

Obama said he would wait for Congress to return from recess; members are not scheduled to return until Sept. 9. Yet the president claimed any military response to Syria is “not time sensitive” and would be effective even one month from now.

The decision to seek congressional authorization is a departure from the administration’s decision to intervene in Libya in 2011. Though the president said he thinks he has the authority to order a military strike, he made clear he will ask Congress to vote on the issue.

“I have decided that the United States should take military action against Syrian regime targets,” the president said. He added: “I’m also mindful that I’m president of the world’s oldest constitutional democracy.”



imageSo you know what is going to happen: nothing. If it ever even comes to a vote, the civil war in Syria could be over by then. If it does come to a vote, it’s pretty much a guarantee that no authorization will be forthcoming.

So I guess I’ll have to put away Conservative mirror and my collection of old leftist memes I was so ready to reflect back at him ...

“Mr. pResident, why are you rushing us to war?”
“Unilateral! Unilateral!! Unilateral!!!”
“Wrong war for the wrong reason at the wrong time”
“No evidence!!!!”

And as much as I hate to say it, by shirking responsibility, Obama winds up doing the right thing: nothing. Because there is NO way for the USA to win here. No way. We bomb the country, we’re baby killers and the entire pisslamic world rises up in anger, again, as usual, Islamic Rage Boy with a pancake on his head, let’s go burn some nuns in Africa. We take out Asswad, and we’re international assassins run by the CIA and no nation or leader on earth is safe. We blow up the entire Syrian government, and the rebels and their terrorist group wins. We blow up the rebels, and the Syrain government and their terrorist group wins. We arm either side, we’re supporting terrorists. We arm BOTH sides, we’re supporting even more terrorists.

So just walk away.

But Obama, he’s the ultimate pro at this kind of game. He shoots his mouth off, dithers forever, walks away doing nothing (aka “votes present"), AND finds somebody else to blame it on.

Crivens.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
