Chuck Norris’ Advice to Obama on Syria

What if Syria WANTS us to invade their country and get trapped in another Middle Eastern quagmire?   Chuck Norris has a theory:

“Syrian President Basher al-Assad launched sarin gas on its citizens in the hope of moving the U.S. like a chess piece into his civil war and deeper onto the Middle East war map.”

Whether it’s an accurate guess or not, it’s yet another reason NOT to attack Syria.  Chuck Norris continues:

“Proof of the president’s shortsightedness is his naive strategy of a ‘limited’ military campaign in Syria.  What a joke and mockery to any opponent or rational mind! What professional fighter says, ‘I’m going to go into the ring and throw a series of blows and then get out,’ as if the opponent has no bearing on counter measures? One can’t limit an attack when you’re kicking hornets’ nests or throwing matches on gasoline!  It is no exaggeration to say that a single, unilateral U.S. strike on Syria could spark fires that lead to the inferno of World War III.”

Gotta agree with him.  Now, where was Chuck Norris eleven years ago when Dumbya was whipping the country into a foaming mass hysteria over Saddam Hussein?  Oh well, better late than never.

He makes a good point about the absurdity of a “limited” war.  As several other people have already pointed out, Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor was just a “surgical strike.”  It’s never a “limited attack” or “surgical strike” when YOUR country is being attacked.

Most Americans — most of the world, for that matter — do NOT want us to attack Syria.  I have no idea who’s pulling Obama’s puppet strings, unless it’s the pro-Israel Lobby.  Tell these AIPAC chickenhawks to shut the fuck up.

America has been Israel’s Bitch long enough.  President Obama (and Congress):  Just Say No.

When I read the headlines this morning the first thing that came to mind was, brilliant strategy. Beat the war drums while working out a deal with Russia that offers a way out that allows the UN in to keep a lid on the pot and let the damned thing simmer until those ragheads drag themselves into the 20th Century, then we can worry about the 21st Century.

Can somebody answer a question for me? I've heard Israel wants us to attack Syria but that hardly makes sense if Assad got booted out and jihadists took control. Anybody have an insight on this?

Mr. C: I certainly hope this plan works out, with Russia and the UN offering a way out.

Jim: I don't have any logic or insight on it either. But that's my understanding, that AIPAC and the Israeli government are hoping to get the U.S. to do Israel's dirty work against Iran and Syria.

SRSLY< Chuck Norris is now dispensing advice. When did he become president. Was I sleeping and missed the memo?

@Jim, I saw somewhere yesterday that Benjamin Netenyahu(SP) has been calling on congresscritters to try talking them into us getting involved with this militarily. I'm gueesing over at the MIC, since the other two desert escapades are winding down, they need to keep the money flowing into their wallets.

Jess: How sad is that when a rightwing martial arts/Hollywood has-been has a clearer perspective than the POTUS. I'm no fan of Chuck Norris, but Obama is totally off the deep end on this one.

Anonymous: I think you're right. "Defense" contractors want this war, and they usually have a lot more clout than governments, public opinion and common sense.

Heck, I guess if Jesse Ventura can get elected governor, Chuck Norris can get elected president?


Well, maybe... Ronald Reagan was elected president, after all.

I don't want the U.S. to get involved in the Middle East any further militarily unless it's absolutely necessary and our national security is actually at stake. I'm tired of the "World Police" stuff. And I wouldn't mind if we cut off foreign aid to all the Middle East countries including Israel. I believe no amount of diplomacy is ever going to solve the conflict in that region, so let them all duke it out between themselves, and let's spend the money and human treasure on efforts to make things better here at home.

Thank you, I'm down from my soap box now. 8-)

Snave: I agree, no more foreign aid or military adventures in the Middle East. We have enough pressing problems here at home.
