Obama to Attack Syria Without Asking Congress; We're on the Brink of WWIII; Russia and China Walk Out of U.N. Security Council Meeting
August 28, 2013
Damascus, Syria (CNN) -- The United States has concluded Syria carried out chemical weapons attacks against its people, President Barack Obama said Wednesday, a claim that comes amid a looming diplomatic showdown over whether to strike against Bashar al-Assad's military.
Obama's declaration to "PBS NewsHour" came at the end of a day that saw Russia and China walk out of a U.N. Security Council meeting as word surfaced Britain planned to pursue a resolution to authorize the use of force against Syria, even as United Nations weapons inspectors were in Syria assessing whether chemical weapons have been used.
"We do not believe that, given the delivery systems, using rockets, that the opposition could have carried out these attacks. We have concluded that the Syrian government in fact carried these out," Obama told "NewsHour."
"And if that's so, then there need to be international consequences," the president added.

Obama and his partners in crime set stage of another murderous attack
August 26, 2013
During his remarks today at the State Department, Secretary Kerry exploited the shock value of the chemical attack last week in Syria but did not provide a shred of verifiable evidence that the attack was the work of Bashar al-Assad and his military. Kerry said Syria destroyed any evidence by shelling the Jobar neighborhood outside of Damascus where the attack allegedly occurred. He failed to mention, however, that the government of Syria is involved in ongoing hostilities with so-called “rebels” who are CIA mercenaries consisting primarily of al-Nusra and al-Qaeda terrorists and shelling enemy positions is normal activity during war.
Kerry’s remarks on Monday are a precursor to a WMD rationale. It will be reminiscent of the Bush administration’s WMD pretext prior to the invasion of Iraq. Despite then Secretary of State Colin Powell’s ludicrous theatrics at the United Nations when he famously wagged a model vial of anthrax and presented other fabricated evidence like mobile biological weapon labs, it was clearly determined before and after the invasion that Iraq did not possess nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.
A House committee in 2004 identified “237 misleading statements about the threat posed by Iraq that were made by President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Secretary Rumsfeld, Secretary Powell, and National Security Advisor Rice. These statements were made in 125 separate appearances, consisting of 40 speeches, 26 press conferences and briefings, 53 interviews, 4 written statements, and 2 congressional testimonies.” According to the committee, at least 61 separate statements “misrepresented Iraq’s ties to al-Qaeda.” A Senate investigation in 2006 also found the Bush administration and its coterie of neocons had lied to the American people.
