Has the illegal bombing started yet?
If so, it’s proof that so long as there’s a Democrat in the White House, the snooze media couldn’t care less if he’s also a dictator who doesn’t bother seeking advance approval for military adventurism from the UN or Congress.
Unlike W., the president who did seek advance approval and got called BusHitler for it anyway. But he was a Republican.
Not that the bombing or cruise missiling we’ve been told to expect to begin today is likely to have much effect, especially not after Barry leaked his plans in advance, apparently to make sure Iran didn’t hate on him and his other Jihadi pals had time to hunker down.
“There is no credible chance the U.S. can locate or destroy Syria’s entire holding [of chemical weapons] without a massive air campaign and [G-d forbid] some kind of presence on the ground. Even if the Assad regime has not done the obvious, and used the last few months to covertly disperse a large portion of its weapons, cruise missiles simply don’t have that kind of destructive power… the military impact will be marginal at best. Moreover, anyone who has actually seen wounds from conventional artillery — or badly treated body wounds from small arms — realizes that chemical weapons do not cause more horrible wounds.”
“Or as Nancy Pelosi might say, ‘We must bomb Syria to know what is in Syria.’ We are about to find out.”
Me, I’ll be happy if none of our pilots and assorted others, including Israelis, get hurt.
UPDATE: Barry Rubin says Obongo & Co. are bluffing, simple as that.
MORE: Indeed, five days later, we’re still waiting for Obozo to drop a shoe, let alone a bomb.
