Russian MP Says Obama ‘Clones’ Bush in Drive For War

MOSCOW, August 25 (RIA Novosti) – The United States is moving towards war with Syria, a senior Russian lawmaker said Sunday lashing President Barack Obama as “clone” of George W. Bush in his drive for war.

“Obama is restlessly heading towards war in Syria like Bush was heading towards war in Iraq. Like in Iraq, this war would be illegitimate and Obama will become Bush’s clone,” Alexei Pushkov, the head of the Russian lower house’s international committee, said on Twitter.

His remarks came after US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said on Sunday the White House is studying different military options against Syria.

"President Obama has asked the Defense Department to prepare options for all contingencies. We have done that and we are prepared to exercise whatever option - if he decides to employ one of those options," Reuters quoted Hagel as saying.

3. Yeah - I hear they have a Syria War Group manufacturing intel just like Bush did.

Nope. There is a serious difference. If we go in now it will be as a last resort. If they WANTED to be in they would have been in early on when Sec of State Clinton wanted to go in.

6. Nope...no public support.

 

I am highly suspicious of the allegations that Assad used chemical weapons, just like I was suspicious Iraq was building nukes.

I am tired of US officials tricking us into wars and using pretense after pretense.

7. Get real - if they WANTED to go to war there was already plenty of reason

to do so over the last 3 years. They don't WANT to. My expectation, at this point, is that if they go in it will be strategic and minimal.

In other words NOTHING like the deceits of Bush-Cheney.

8. No because they need to drum up public support or have a reason to do so.

 

It strains credulity that Assad would do this. How stupid do you think Assad and we are?

9. Assad has proven himself to be REALLY stupid since Arab Spring.

His paranoia took over two years ago.
