UK US UN No Support for Obama Strike on Syria

"We're going after the Syrians — whether the Russians like it or not".  

These are the words of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama.  Obama had been in office just two weeks before the February 1 nomination deadline for the Nobel prize.  He had no concrete achievements in peacemaking in his short, partial term as a United States Senator from Illinois and had never accomplished anything. Nada. 

Obama, who is now in his second term as President of the United States has killed more civilians in unmanned aerial air strikes than his predecessor, George W. Bush.  The Nobel Peace Prize winner has also escalated the war in Afghanistan and prosecuted more whistleblowers than all previous presidents combined.

In an interview with PBS NewsHour on Wednesday, President Obama said the U.S. had "concluded" that the regime of Bashar Assad used chemical weapons during an attack last week near Damascus that reportedly left hundreds dead and potentially thousands more injured.

"We have looked at all the evidence, and we do not believe the opposition possessed nuclear weapons on – or chemical weapons of that sort," Obama said. "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. And if that's so, then there need to be international consequences."

Congressman Alan Grayson, on an interview on “The Lead” on CNN August 29, 2013 said “Obama’s case for striking Syria is flatly false”.  Grayson’s comments come on the heels of Obama’s interview on PBS where Obama claimed the U.S. had “concluded” that Assad had used chemical weapons.

U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson criticized the case for war being made by his fellow Democrats in the Obama Administration by saying it’s not telling the truth that Syria’s use of chemical weapons is "undeniable."

“To say that it’s 'undeniable' is flatly false,” Grayson said Thursday on CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper. “The administration is only giving one side of the story." 

 Of Secretary of State Kerry’s comments, Grayson had this to say,

“The secretary certainly overstated the evidence that this was a deliberate decision made by the high command in Syria,” Grayson said. “There’s all sorts of ambiguity regarding that particular point. The secretary said it was undeniable. It’s been denied. And in fact the Syrian government has said: A) they didn’t do it, B) they would never do it, C) they never will do it, and D) they’ve invited in U.N. inspectors to prove that.”

It is time to end the Masters of War reign in the United States.  It is time to take care of the American people and provide for the security well-being of our country and our people.  Time for our nation to heal and to rebuild our once great nation.  In the words of Bob Dylan:

 Master of War Obama same as Master of War Bush.
