Time for Action in Syria has Passed

As Obama attempts to push the call for action forward I fear the window for a pertinent response has passed. There is a myriad of articles detailiing how Syria is moving key military assets into civilian populous areas (100% against the Geneva Convention and Laws of War BTW)and scattering troops and command and control elements to reduce the elements of an impending strike. To top it off the Syrian ambassodor was contrite enough to use Obama's campaign slogan of "Yes We Can" to allude to the need for peace in Syria. The cold harsh reality is anything we do from this point is an after thought. It is reminicent of "Wag the Dog" diplomacy in order to deflect attention from scandals and administration failures. As much as I wanted him to nut up and take a stand for what is right and decent; you do that when the deplorable actions occur. You do not wait until you have had more telegenic mouth pieces sell your stance and then say we have to do what is right. Leaders do what is right when it is needed. Now at the risk of talking out of both sides of my mouth...

I believe that chemical weapons were used however, the inspecters have been out of the country long enough to provide an initial "smoking gun" A couple of circumstances could apply; one being that they do not want to release until they are 100% sure because of what the response will be, the agent had disipated to the point that the results were not ironclad, or lastly, the were inconclusive...

With all of this said, the U.S. has stated that we know for sure that the weapons were used. If in fact that were the case, the classified proof should have been shared with the decision makers and action taken a year ago period. Anything that happens from here is once again an afterthought and a futile attempt to display his ability to serve as Commander and Chief.

yep...he talked himself into a corner months ago. He has to do something or, in street vernacular, risk looking like a punk. However, the time to do something has passed. Each day that something isn't done, whatever does happen is less effective. Too late.

I still think we will to be honest; just don't know how this is going to play out now...

Sideshow
July 25, 2016
It seems that most political contests end up evolving into some type of sideshow and the current one is on track to be the grandest of all… One of the real tragedies of this being that any semblance of substance or validity is completely absorbed by school yard name calling ...

Really???
July 12, 2016
I will not even voice my disgust with this reprehensible person. My unbiased opinion (believe it or not)makes me angry as this type of rhetoric is unacceptable and does zero to bring light to an already sensitive. Truly amazing http://www.msn.com/en-us/tv/news/former-miss-alabama-suspended-from-tv-gig-for-calling-dallas-sniper-a-%E2%80%98martyr%E2%80%99/ar-BBufD7w?li=BBnbfcL

Please take a little time to look at my profile photo and post your take on it. All I will say is this directly correlates to his refusal to refer to terrorists that are Muslim as an offshoot of radical Islam. I concede that every Muslim is not a terrorist ...

A Nation on the Brink
June 24, 2016
The winds of change seem to be upon us as Britain has made it clear the populous is tired of the “old guard”; our nation also seems to be on the brink as well. I find a great deal of irony here as we as a nation declared our independence ...

In the interest of taking a break from our usual political conversations I would like to share some of my own personal angst with the millennial generation. For those of that remember; the Who put it best during the spawning of change; My Generation… My issue is the social media ...
