Smart Power… Hillary Clinton Says No Syrian Intervention Because Killer Assad Is a “Reformer”

Hillary Clinton today told CBS “Face the Nation” viewers that the US would not interfere in Syria because Assad is a “reformer.”

Here is Assad’s style of reform…
If you don’t agree with his regime you either will be bombed…

The Syrian Assad Regime was blamed for bomb attacks that killed at least 6 prominent anti-Syrian political leaders in Lebanon, including the giant blast that killed Rafik Hariri on Valentines Day 2005.

Or, if you are not the target of a bombing the regime “reformers” will just slaughter you in the street.

And, don’t forget that for years this “reformer” Assad allowed terrorists on his soil who had been moving, arming, and funding foreign jihadists traveling through Syria into Iraq in cooperation with al-Qaeda leader Abu Musab al Zarqawi.

Syria has been threatening Israel for years and has allowed the Iranian regime to move weapons freely to its Hezbollah affiliates in Lebanon.

But for some reason, not clear to the rest of us, Hillary Clinton believes Assad is a reformer?
It must be that smart power we were promised.
Bloomberg reported:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the U.S. won’t enter into the internal conflict in Syria the way it has in Libya.

“No,” Clinton said, when asked on the CBS “Face the Nation” program if the U.S. would intervene in Syria’s unrest. Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s security forces clashed with protesters in several cities yesterday after his promises of freedoms and pay increases failed to prevent dissent from spreading across the country.

Clinton said the elements that led to intervention in Libya — international condemnation, an Arab League call for action, a United Nations Security Council resolution — are “not going to happen” with Syria, in part because members of the U.S. Congress from both parties say they believe Assad is “a reformer.”

    Dear Mrs.Clinton: Provide the names of Congress who believe your assertion that Assad is a reformer.Moreover,you and President44 have proved to the American People that you are not ready for calls.

    Hillary, from your very own list of “State Sponsors of Terrorism”

    Cuba, pround member since 1982
    Iran, proud member since 1984
    Sudan, charter member since 1993
    Syria, founding member 1979

    Nope, no Libya. They were a founding member, but got off the list for playing ball with W in 2006.

    Real good message Zero is sending there.

  • MrGoodWench

    Remember Pelosi and that MN moosie who went on pilgrimage to Syria in 2007 ?
    Now we see the result of that taxpayer funded jaunt

  • DaMav

    Syria is an ally of Iran, Obama’s best bet to destroy Israel. Don’t expect otherwise. This is not driven by stupidity.

  • Redwine

    Shrillary lies, of course. The Hussein regime supports Assad because he is in league with Iran, its favorite Islamofascists. (The US is busy reaching out to Iran-operated Hizballah, and still sends arms to the Lebanese army as the government is being subsumed under Hizballah control.) They have allowed arms to be transported from Iran, through Syria to Lebanon, post-2006 Israel-Hizbo war and against UNSC resolution1701 (of course). Obviously, the Assad terror regime is using the same murderous tactics on its people that were used by Bashar’s father, Hafez, to monstrous effect in 1982 in Homs (Hama) by slaughtering around 25,000. The murdered ones then were Muslim Brotherhood Islamists. The murdered ones now are Muslim Brotherhood Islamists. The only difference between the response to Libya and Syria is that Gaddafi was bribed with oil deals for the Pan Am terrorist for which he backed off from committing outright terror acts in the West and Bashar Assad remains a pawn in the Iranian game. It should be obvious by now that the Hussein regime favors Iran and its satellites.

    BTW – In one sentence in the main post, “Hillary Clinton today told CBS “Face the Nation” viewers that the US would not interfere in Libya because Assad is a “reformer.”, “Libya” should read “Syria”.

  • if your anti-american or pro-communist that qualifies as a “reformer” to hillary.

  • Redwine

    Oh – and “Smart Power” has not prevented some very nasty Russian arms from reaching Syria.

  • i think bill clinton, hillary clinton and barack obama should have a lying bee to see which one of the is the biggest liar in history.

  • Callipygian1

    Yeah, Assad is a re-former terrorist… Hillary forgot to mention the hyphen.

  • moriah

    Here some Syrian “reform” for you:

  • elhrac

    It is frightening to see the United States align its policies with Iran and al-Qaeda.

  • KevinS

    Few years back, America’s pastor, Rick Warren, was praising the Syrian Government.

  • The left loves murderous tyrants. I have no idea why they turned on Libya, did they help us too much in the WOT?

  • american patriot

    We are being lead by the smartest people in the world. In the world, I tell ya, in the world.

  • wanumba

    Well, that helpfully clarifies which fascist radicals Obama and Hillary support.

  • grizzlybare

    Lighten up on old Hilly. Obama’s screwing her over…….and her hubby is shacking up some-where with a chick one third her age. In the summer of 08 she was a “rock star”. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Her face is a puddle….but thank God she’s keeping her figure, and her pant suits for the 2012 run. I like the tangerine one the best.

  • No Man

    No man is so freaking stupid he can’t understand that helping al Qaeda conquer in Bahrain, Egypt, Libya and Yemen is vital to US interests and will end terrorist attacks on America.

    Thank goodness we have the smartest woman on earth and the smartest black man on the planet covering our arses.

    BOHICA – Bend over here it comes again!

    The USA went from fighting the axis of evil to fighting for al queda in Libya and cozing up with the Syrian butchers.
    Shame, Shame, Shame.

    Is there a way to impeach the entire political apparatus?

    And if not, is there a way to somehow teleport DC into Syria?
