Obama Delays Syria Strike

Breaking news ...

Obama has asked the Senate to DELAY voting on the Syria strike he asked for.

Waffle, waffle, waffle.

Seems the Russkies had some offer in front of the UN (all your WMDs is belong to us), but they have now withdrawn that. So Obobo now wants a delay.

Fox Snooze has Shiela Jackson-Lee on TV now, trying to spew some BS and make some spin.

Obama delays the vote ... that’s a loooong way from him having the moxie to act on his own when that Red Line gets crossed. Which it did. But it didn’t. Which he called for. But he didn’t. So he put things to Congress to vote on. But now he didn’t.  What a waffle wiener.

waffle wiener. Onna stick!

President Obama, hours before his address to the nation on Syria, found his foreign policy in danger Tuesday of being hijacked by Vladimir Putin and his own Congress.

The president, along with Secretary of State John Kerry, is still pushing for a possible vote in Congress to authorize military force in response to a chemical weapons attack last month. At the same time, his administration is pursuing a diplomatic proposal that would have the Assad regime turn over its chemical weapons to international control.

But one of his top congressional allies, as well as Putin himself, are now calling for Congress to back off the strike vote.

Putin reportedly said Tuesday that the only way the diplomatic option can work is if “we hear that the American side and all those who support the United States in this sense reject the use of force.”

The comment came as Syria’s foreign minister embraced the proposal to turn over chemical weapons. The official said Tuesday that Syria would declare its chemical weapons arsenal and sign the chemical weapons convention.

Earlier in the day, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi also claimed there was no need for a congressional vote.

“It is not necessary for Congress to give the president this authority,” Pelosi said. “We are grateful that he has asked for it but if he sees an opportunity we don’t want the Russians to think that his leverage is diminished because of a vote (that) may or may not succeed within the Congress.”

The push-back from Washington and Moscow poses a challenge for Obama, as he finds himself caught between two very different paths on Syria—a missile strike that potentially drags the U.S. into a bloody civil war, and a diplomatic solution that would likely do little to end that war.

yeah yeah yeah, yadda yadda ya

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

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.
