15 Signs That Obama Has Already Made The Decision To Go To War With Syria

Public Policy

Following John Kerry’s press briefing, it appears the Obama administration seems absolutely determined to help radical Islamic jihadists that have beheaded Christians, that have massacred entire Christian villages, and that have pledged loyalty to al-Qaeda topple the Assad regime and take over Syria.  Yes, the Assad regime is horrible, but if these jihadist lunatics take control it will destabilize the entire region, make the prospect of a major regional war much more probable, and plunge the entire nation of Syria into a complete and utter nightmare.

It has been estimated that somewhere around 100,000 people have already been killed in the civil war in Syria, and now it looks like the U.S. military and the rest of NATO plan to become directly involved in the conflict.  The Obama administration is actually considering an attack on Syria even though the American people are overwhelmingly against it, Obama does not have Congressional approval to start a war, and he will never get approval for military action from the UN because it will be blocked by RussiaThis is setting up to become a colossal foreign policy disaster for the United States.

A potential war with Syria has been brought to the forefront because of a chemical weapons attack near Damascus last week that killed as many as 1,400 people.  The Obama administration and several other western nations are blaming this attack on the Assad regime.

But others are pointing out that it would make absolutely no sense for the Assad regime to do such a thing.  They appear to be winning the civil war, and Assad knows that Obama has previously said that the use of chemical weapons in Syria would be a “red line” for the United States.

So why would the Assad regime launch a brutal chemical weapons attack against women and children just miles from where UN inspectors were staying?

Why would Assad risk war with the United States and the rest of NATO?

Assad would have to be extremely stupid or extremely suicidal to do such a thing.

The ones that benefit from this chemical weapons attack are the jihadist rebels.  The odds of foreign intervention in the conflict just went way, way up.

We will probably never learn the real truth about who was actually behind that attack.  And even if it had not happened, the U.S. and the rest of NATO would have probably come up with another justification to go to war anyway.  They appear absolutely obsessed with getting rid of Assad, but they have not really thought through the consequences.

The following are 15 signs that Obama has already made the decision to go to war with Syria…

#1 Syria has agreed to allow UN officials to inspect the site of the recent chemical weapons attack that killed up to 1,400 people, but a “senior U.S. official” says that such an inspection would be “too late to be credible“.

#2 According to ABC News, the White House is saying that there is “very little doubt” that the Assad regime was behind the deadly chemical weapons attack last week.

#3 Four U.S. warships with ballistic missiles are moving into position in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. If the command is given, they will be able to rain Tomahawk cruise missiles down on targets inside Syria within minutes…

U.S. defense officials told The Associated Press that the Navy had sent a fourth warship armed with ballistic missiles into the eastern Mediterranean Sea but without immediate orders for any missile launch into Syria.


U.S. Navy ships are capable of a variety of military actions, including launching Tomahawk cruise missiles, as they did against Libya in 2011 as part of an international action that led to the overthrow of the Libyan government.

#4 CBS News is reporting that “the Pentagon is making the initial preparations for a Cruise missile attack on Syrian government forces”.

#5 On Saturday, Barack Obama met with his national security team to discuss what actions should be taken in Syria.

#6 U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel says that Barack Obama has asked him to “prepare options for all contingencies” as far as a conflict with Syria is concerned.

#7 After a phone conversation with British Prime Minister David Cameron about the situation in Syria, the White House announced that both leaders expressed “grave concern” about the chemical weapons attack that took place last week.

#8 Military commanders from the United States, Britain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, France, Italy and Canada are meeting in Amman, Jordan on Sunday to coordinate plans for upcoming attacks on Syria.

#9 According to France’s second largest newspaper, rebel forces that have been trained by the CIA have been pouring toward Damascus “since mid-August“…

According to our information, the regime’s opponents, supervised by Jordanian, Israeli and American commandos moving towards Damascus since mid-August. This attack could explain the possible use of the Syrian president to chemical weapons.


According to information obtained by Le Figaro , the first trained in guerrilla warfare by the Americans in Jordan Syrian troops reportedly entered into action since mid-August in southern Syria, in the region of Deraa. A first group of 300 men, probably supported by Israeli and Jordanian commandos, as well as men of the CIA, had crossed the border on August 17. A second would have joined the 19. According to military sources, the Americans, who do not want to put troops on the Syrian soil or arming rebels in part controlled by radical Islamists form quietly for several months in a training camp set up at the border Jordanian- Syrian fighters ASL, the Free Syrian Army, handpicked.

#10 The U.S. military moved a significant number of F-16 fighter jets to Jordan earlier this year for military exercises, and kept them there afterward “at the request of the Jordanian government“.

#11 According to a government document that Wikileaks released back in March 2012, NATO personnel have been on the ground inside Syria preparing for regime change since 2011.

#12 The Times of Israel is reporting that an internal military assessment has concluded that “Washington is seriously considering a limited yet effective attack that will make it clear to the regime in Damascus that the international community will not tolerate the use of weapons of mass destruction against Syrian civilians or any other elements”.

#13 U.S. Senator John McCain recently said that if the U.S. military does not hit Syria, it will be like “writing a blank check to other brutal dictators around the world if they want to use chemical weapons”.

#14 According to the New York Times, “the NATO air war in Kosovo” is being studied “as a possible blueprint for acting without a mandate from the United Nations”.

#15 The White House has released a statement that says that the Obama administration has no plans to put “boots on the ground“, but it did not rule out any other types of military action.

This is not a conflict that the U.S. military should be involved in.

And we should especially not be on the side of the rabidly anti-Christian, rabidly anti-Israel and rabidly anti-western forces that are attempting to take control of Syria.

The terrorists that the Obama administration is backing are absolutely psychotic.  Just check out the following example from a recent article posted on the Blaze

New video posted on YouTube purports to show the graphic murder – execution style – of three Syrian truck drivers who did nothing more than belong  to a minority faith the local Al Qaeda affiliate does not like.


In the video, a small band of Islamist radicals with the Al Qaeda-linked ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) group is seen waving the tractor trailers off the side of an Iraqi road and then proceeds to interrogate the unsuspecting drivers about their prayer habits, trying to discover if they are Sunnis or members of the Alawite minority in Syria.


When they “fail” the Sunni jihadis’ pop roadside quiz, the truck drivers are seated in a line in the median of the road and shot in the back of their heads firing squad style by the self-appointed law enforcers, jury, judge and executioner.

Why in the world would the United States want to arm such people?

Why in the world would the United States want to go to war to help such people take power?

It is utter insanity.

And as I mentioned earlier, most Americans are totally against getting involved.  According to a stunning new poll, 60 percent of all Americans are against U.S. military intervention in Syria, and only 9 percent are in favor of it.

So in light of all that you have just read, why is the Obama administration so determined to help the rebels in Syria?

    “Rebels”!? They are imported Salafi jihadis. Qatar alone has spent 3 billion dollars funding and supplying them. Billions more from Saudi Arabia, which we will never hear about and most likely billions from the west.

    Syria is an ally of Iran and Iran is the real prize.

    It isn’t our business. Let Allah sort it out

    So 100,00 people are killed by guns, beheadings, beaten to death, and no one bats an eye.

    Yet a handful of people are killed with “chemical weapons” and everyone looses their minds.

    Hey! Mr FailureNChief! How about helping stop the record number of murders in your own hometown of Chicago? How about helping people get back to work?


    Then there is John Kerry, the dumbest secretary of state in history. Another failure of the Odumbshit administration.


    It’s a distraction from the NSA and IRS, and a war crime. Obama is no different than Bush.

    When an empire is failing they ALWAYS go to war … and this will be a big one, not another Afghanistan or Iraq. A world war, possibly nuclear.

    War is inevitable, the empire needs control of the middle east and its bounty of oil to keeps it’s machines functioning. What’s more is that the world’s dependence on the US is shrinking as other countries become more developed, weakening the US’s grip and making it even more likely that a desperate show of force will need to be exhibited.

    >>>Hey! Mr FailureNChief! How about helping stop the record number of murders in your own hometown of Chicago? How about helping people get back to work?

    I’ll buy a bus ticket so you can go to Chicago so you can help the kids on the south side. And I’ll buy tickets for all your concerned goober buddies too.

    The US’s lust for war and its desire to inflict suffering on others knows no bounds. Yes, the puppet Obama is a war-criminal, but if he weren’t the current figurehead, then someone else that calls themselves ‘president’ would be doing the exact same thing.

    The US seeks to partition and balkanize Syria the same way they did to Yugoslavia. The US goal is to carve up the world into small, politically, economically and militarily insignificant enclaves(preferably fighting amongst each other) that are unable to resist US military and economic imperialism. Usually, afterwards, the US encourages further conflict between the enclaves, and then points to that as justification for its ceaseless meddling around the globe.

    What Syria needs, is to request an SCO peacekeeping force that can help maintain order and stop the murderous US proxies that terrorize the people there.

    “Syria is an ally of Iran and Iran is the real prize.”

    Iran is an ally of Russia and China and the world is the real prize.

    In previous posts I have predicted that the US would not intervene, because I believed that there is still some sense left in Washington and actually I am still not convinced that Washington wants to hand over the country to fundamentalists. Instead, they want to clean break the country apart. Expect pinpoint strikes, but no US boots on the ground (always a recipe for desaster). Maybe Washington believes that it has Egypt under control again and that the coast is clear again to carry out the original game plan: regime change in Damascus and turn the country into a US satellite. It failed in Vietnam, it failed in Somalia, it failed in Russia, it failed in Afghanistan, it failed in Iraq and it will fail in Syria. In Syria there will be no half secular army the US can control, like in Egypt. That army is going to be defeated and replaced by jihadists, who opine that the only good American is a dead American. Next will be Jordan and Saudi-Arabia and the main prize will be Israel. Well then, dear John Kohn, why don’t you drive your empire against the wall at full speed if you have to? Go for it!

    I’m disappointed, but hardly astonished, we didn’t deal with this proxy war sooner. Leaving everything on the fire this long, everything got burned.
    Dissident nails the real reason we let this stew. The US, Israel, France the UK need a ’causes belli’ to “retaliate”
    on Iran. Russia, more to the point, Iran are dead set on defending Assad’s Syria. There are BTW, at minimum ten thousand, some say the number is as high as 60,000 Russians living in Syria. These are business people, military advisors, oil workers etc. Not counting Hezbollah troops numbering over 7,000 I have no idea how many Iranians reside in Syria.

    How many Russians an Iranians are killed or injured by
    ‘surgical strikes’ may not be known for years.

    Here’s one scenario I took directly from my butt;

    The UK, France, Israel and the US launch preemptive strikes as early as Thursday. Command and control RADAR sites are early targets.

    Iran and Russia claim hundreds of casualties among their ex-pat community in Syria.

    Don’t forget we, (the US) have at least three nuclear powered carriers in the region. These 20th century marvels are prime targets for Sunburn* super sonic anti ship missiles. Each N. powered aircraft carrier has a compliment of about 5,000… BTW.


  10. Arthur on Tue, 27th Aug 2013 10:07 pm

    Indeed, strikes may begin on thursday and last 2-3 days. The idea is NOT to topple Assad, but weaken him, because he became too strong lately. The aim is the destruction of Syria. One is reminded of the zionist thug Michael Ledeen who once famously said that every now and then the US needs to throw a shitty little country against the wall just to show the world the US means business. The Community Worker from Chicago will probably address the UN before the event with the usual sanctimonious moral justifications before we can witness the slaughter via CNN.

    If we can do anything it is to awaken enough people to the idea of peace. Spread the word. Practice mindful loving kindness.

  12. PrestonSturges on Tue, 27th Aug 2013 11:29 pm 

    I was saying last night that if Iran sticks its nose into this, Israel would use that as an excuse to drop the hammer on Iran’s nuclear facilities. Hell they probably wouldn’t wait for an excuse.

  13. BillT on Wed, 28th Aug 2013 1:07 am 

    As I said, it will turn nuclear eventually. The US will not go down easily, but it will go down.

  14. peakyeast on Wed, 28th Aug 2013 10:06 am 

    I completely understand the disappointment that the US is going to war again and it is sad that the US needs to put up lies to justify the means instead of just telling it how it is.

    I see it as necessary part of planning for a global power down and population reduction. The US needs to be on top of things to provide the best future for the west at the expense of the rest of the world.

    The question people should ask themselves: Do you want to be the one that is submitting your share of the planet so someone else in X country can live have it? In case thats a yes – just go out and hang yourself – it will save resources and time.

    I do not suppose many will feel altruistic enought to do that.

  15. Arthur on Wed, 28th Aug 2013 12:39 pm 

    “I see it as necessary part of planning for a global power down and population reduction. The US needs to be on top of things to provide the best future for the west at the expense of the rest of the world.”

    Fascinating insight in your world view you give us here, peakyeast. So basically you are saying that the US is going to kill a few billion darkies, and it is sad that it has to be that way, not in the least because of the lying, but hey, it is all for the better, honoust. Something has got to give.


    While I agree that the days that the West (read: the white race) will function as the Red Cross of the rest of humanity should come to an end and that we should concentrate on our own survival within our own historic borders, the idea that the US army should help a little to get rid of ‘useless eaters’ is a little over the top.

    Oh, and if you think that Washington is here to defend the interests of the people of the West, you really have a lot to learn. The Rothschildt empire, aka the West is here to hand the world over to, well, Rothschildt and the rest of the zionist bunch. This maffia started to make itself felt in 1917 when the zionist Jacob Schiff funded the bolshevik revolution in Russia and the maffia experienced its zenith of power in 1945 when the maffia lead coalition of Anglos and Soviets managed to destroy Europe.

    Now it is Israel and their serfs US, UK, and France with one leg, against the rest of the world. And most Americans are not ready to be slaughtered either. I am rather confident that we are living in the last decade of zionist/Anglo domination and that Washington will fail to mobilize its own population to fight WW3. The US will fall apart, just like the USSR. Ask Orlov.

  16. GregT on Thu, 29th Aug 2013 2:04 am 


    I agree with most of what you have said, but I do not believe for one second, that the Zionist goal of world domination will be over.

    I believe that this is all part of their master plan, and they already have plans to move their sphere of influence to other places.

    And to everyone else, Obama is not in control, his decisions have nothing to do with anything. He either complies, or he will be removed from the limelight, politically, or permanently.
