The Obama administration is NOT going to bomb Syria !Submitted by rhino on Thu, 09/05/2013 - 20:07
I have been trying to put myself in President Obama's shoes for the past week, trying to figure out the upside to this whole thing for him, his legacy, and his party which is the order of priority for any politician.
A president can't be bribed with campaign dollars like a congressman so there is no wealth factor. It really comes down to the power side of things, but that is only important for the party not for Obama personally. So it really comes down to legacy and party. Obama, personally does not have anything to gain by bombing Syria.
Like Jimmy Carter, Obama's legacy resume will be greatly enhanced by his Nobel Peace Prize and that would be negated by bombing Syria.
He basically came out of Lybia unscathed mainly due to the public not really knowing what the hell was going on and there was no time to build a massive public opposition to his actions.
I think he was using this as a blueprint and he thought that he would float the idea, there would be no visible opposition and then he would go ahead.
Obviously this has not happened.
Now let's look at what would happen if Obama backs off.
Obama will be humbled. He will be more popular than any other former president when he hits the speaking circuit. Even more popular than Clinton.
His legacey as a Nobel Peace Prize recipient will give him gravitas for decades to come.
The party will remain the party of peace.
Even Rand Paul and Ron Paul would reluctantly praise him for his actions.
He might even win a few votes for his party from us. Those that prioritize foreign policy as a top priority.
We will know in about a week, but I bet he backs down.
Having said that ...
I also think he will go covert and simply place a few well placed drones in the area. That way he can do what he wants without all the publicity.
Obama is not going to bomb Syria. An agreement has been reached.
So much for everyone's zionist conspiracy theory.
I hope this is a wake up call to all those that think Jews run our government.
