"Understanding Obama's Syrian Speech" by EarlG..

Assad had to be threatened



Before you start throwing "bullshit" around you need to know the history.. Of course, Kerry knew there was a possibility Assad's friend Putin would be the broker.. they were working on it behind the scenes.



And, who else is supporting President Obama's airstrikes..

Jimmy Carter, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren, all well respected leaders, have access and know a hellava lot more about this than those on the internet who can't grasp this isn't being run by the bush-cheney neocon crowd.

"I think we need to attack ISIS. I'm really concerned about them."

"Is the bombing of ISIS justified? I say yes. And I hope President Obama has every possible success in getting allies to join with us, some with ground troops effected inside Syria."

Bernie stands with the President on this "Enormously complicated issue".. as he calls it. He disagrees with staying out of ISIS like some around are clamoring on about.



As he stated it's an "International effort" and guess what.. "they have to put money in it too."

Senator Sanders also said Assad Gassed his own people.. whether the conspiracy theorists around here believe it or not..

Hartman and he talked about one republiCon saying.. they'll "blast him if it doesn't work and ask why he didn't do it sooner if it does." Sounds like a familiar whine.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren says she supports President Obama's decision to authorize airstrikes in Iraq

BOSTON — Warning against a new U.S. war in Iraq, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Friday stood by President Barack Obama’s decision to authorize targeted airstrikes to help defend Americans in Erbil, Iraq, and provide aid to a religious minority taking refuge in the Sinjar mountains.

It’s a complicated situation right now in Iraq and the president has taken very targeted actions to provide humanitarian relief that the Iraqi government requested, and to protect American citizens,” Warren told reporters. “But like the president I believe that any solution in Iraq is going to be a negotiated solution, not a military solution. We do not want to be pulled into another war in Iraq.”


Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., said she supports president Barack Obama's decision to authorize new airstrikes in Iraq but cautioned against U.S. involvement in a new war in the Middle East.

"Colbert Bets An 'Undocumented Gay Muslim Barista' Made Obama's Latte".. this might be on DU but

I saw it on another site today..



snip//

"He added: "I am sick and tired of the race hustlers out there playing the Starbucks gift card because Obama wasn't even drinking coffee."

Colbert revealed Obama was more likely drinking chai tea.

"I bet that tea had a sprig of arugula in there and was certified halal by an undocumented gay Muslim barista," he said."

Perfect, napkinz.. Mahalo!

Mahalo President Obama... "Obama Admin to pay Navajo Nation $554 million in largest settlement

with single Indian tribe."!

And AG Holder.. from your link..

“This landmark resolution ends protracted and burdensome litigation,” Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in a statement provided to The Washington Post on Wednesday. “This demonstrates the Justice Department’s firm commitment to strengthening our partnerships with tribal nations.”

Thank you, kpete~

Mahalo, President Obama!

"By broadening the existing Pacific Remote Islands National Marine Monument from almost 87,000 square miles to more than 490,00 square miles. Obama has now protected more acres of federal land and sea by executive power than any other president in at least 50 years; this action makes the area in question off-limits to commercial fishing."



From your link..

"Even as it uses its authority to expand a monument first established by George W. Bush in 2009, the White House is preparing to act under the same law to designate national monuments in Chicago’s historic Pullman district and the San Gabriel mountain range northeast of Los Angeles"

Thank you, kpete~

Of course it's not.. thank you, Michael Tomasky, for having the intelligence

to discern that.

"This coalition is smaller, but the important point is that it’s not built around a goal that is in the interest only of the United States. Defeating the Islamic State is a genuine priority for the region, and the idea that these gulf states that have been winking at or backing violent extremism for years might actually work with the United States of America (!) to fight it is little short of amazing. I’m not saying Obama deserves the credit here, although it seems clear he and others in the administration have worked hard on this point. Rather, the fact is that the Saudis and the Emiratis and others are now doing, however reluctantly, what it’s in their self-interest to do."

Mahalo babylonsistah~

Sorry, kansasobama.. you can't tell some to be "realistic".. they can't handle it. And, the ones

who are.. are standing with the President already.. like ..

Jimmy Carter, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren, all well respected leaders, have access and know a hellava lot more about this than those on the internet who can't grasp this isn't being run by the bush-cheney neocon crowd.

"I think we need to attack ISIS. I'm really concerned about them."

"Is the bombing of ISIS justified? I say yes. And I hope President Obama has every possible success in getting allies to join with us, some with ground troops effected inside Syria."
