Sarah Palin mocks Obama for his Syria bumbling

"So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?” So, said Sarah Palin Friday evening.

Her sharply sarcastic statement (scroll down for full text), posted on her Facebook page as usual, followed President Obama's latest global update on his unusually long deliberations over what he describes as a minor reaction to Syria's use of chemical weapons against Syrians. Fifty-three weeks ago Obama drew a red line in the sand, saying:

"We have been very clear to the Assad regime but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is; we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus; that would change my equation.”

Last winter Bashar Assad used chemical weapons, killing a few hundred of his countrymen, country-women and country-children. No White House action then.

As one result, more than two weeks ago the Syrian dictator once more used these weapons, killing more than 1,400 men, women and children in the capital's suburbs. Again, no immediate U.S. reaction. >>>

Stuck in his own painted-corner, Obama hesitates further, adding to his perceived weakness abroad and puzzling even sympathetic supporters. So long after the crime, the Democrat's planned punishment, whatever it is, now looks more like a lash-out for his own humiliation by the skinny Syrian.

Today, Obama said he envisioned only a "limited, narrow act" with no "open-ended commitment" and no "boots on the ground approach." Then, despite the limited, simple steps he has in mind, Obama dithers more, repeating, "I have not made any decisions."

Reminds us of someone's angry mother telling a misbehaving son, "Boy, are you in trouble when your father gets home from his business trip next week." By which time, no one remembers the crime. Or it's been surpassed by new family felonies.

"President Obama," Palin notes, "wants America involved in Syria’s civil war pitting the antagonistic Assad regime against equally antagonistic Al Qaeda-affiliated rebels. But he’s not quite sure which side is doing what, what the ultimate end game is, or even whose side we should be on. Haven’t we learned?" >>>

Bottom line is that this is about President Obama saving political face because of his “red line” promise regarding chemical weapons.

As I said before, if we are dangerously uncertain of the outcome and are led into war by a Commander-in-chief who can’t recognize that this conflict is pitting Islamic extremists against an authoritarian regime with both sides shouting “Allah Akbar” at each other, then let Allah sort it out.

So we've already telegraphed just about the entire "strike plan" to Assad

and I'm sure his people have made the appropriate moves to counter/minimize

their effectiveness. No one with half a brain gives a shit what the UN says.

The Russians are laughing at us. Israel must be just shaking its head in disgust.

Good job oBAMA. :rolleyes:

She nailed him. What a perfect summary of Obama's incompetence and cowardice.

Sic hacer pace, para bellum.

He makes Jimmy Carter look like a strong and decisive leader.

I wonder if Obama's favorite Shakespearean play is Hamlet? To be or not to be, to bomb or not to bomb? It ended in tragedy for Hamlet and Juliet; Obama's dithering will end in tragedy for the US and Israel.
