So Much for That Red Line… Medics Say Poisonous Gas Sprayed in Homs, Syria (Video)

On December 3, 2012, President Barack Obama warned Syria that the use of chemical weapons would be “totally unacceptable.” It was a red line not to be crossed.

But that was two weeks ago.
Today, medics reported that poisonous gas sprayed in a rebel-held neighbourhood in Homs.
Aljazeera reported:

As usual… The silence from the White House is deafening. So much for his “red line” talk… huh?

    I won’t repost all the links I’ve posted previously on GP about Syria, but suffice to say: Beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing. Shocker: Obama isn’t telling you the truth.

    Anyone taking Obama at his word does so at his own risk.
    The saddest and most tragic feature of Obama is how he singlehandedly diminishes the office of the presidency. Traditionally, the president represented all americans, promoted policies in the best interest of the country, and respected limits of power in the constitution. Obama spends all his time scheming against select constituency groups, calculating deceiptful public relations campaigns, and developing rewards for donors. These are his skills and all he knows. In everything else he is out of his league, unqualified, and inexperienced. For this, it is not just us who will suffer, but the world. No other country can trust us. They can seek to exploit us, fool us, and mock us. But they cannot trust our word. People in those countries cannot expect help or even empathy from the U.S. government, as it is too consumed with shaping a public image at odds with reality.
    ( I don’t believe chemical weapons have been used by Assad’s forces. If they do use them, it is none of our business.)

    So much for his “red line” talk…

    Regardless of how this development pans out, the only thing to remember about Obie is that the only enemies that he’s readily willing to engage are those he considers the domestic political kind. Real enemies that pose an actual danger are to be ignored or appeased.

    This is likely the rebels themselves as Fearless Leader said that all it would take for the US / NATO (same thing) to intervene on behalf of the rebels would be Assad using chemical weapons. False flag operation if there ever was one.

    Still, to me, it’s all good as Muslims killing Islamists killing Koran Thumpers killing Muslims is always the best strategy for the Christian west to defend itself from the cancer that is Islam.

  • Multitude

    No no no. Obama will get really mad now. And he’ll announce the “Brilliant Magenta Line.” This is much more serious than the red line because, if it is crossed, he will… be even madder. Just like all those serious sanctions on Iran that worked because if you crossed the line, well, there were strict consequences. Like talking. And more lines.

    Somewhere, Neville Chamberlain is smiling knowing that there’s an even greater weakling who’s enabling evil through appeasement.

  • BurmaShave

    President Barack Obama warned Syria that the use of chemical weapons would be “totally unacceptable.”

    Oooo wow, and Obama also said that Iran acquiring a nuclear bomb would be “totally unacceptable.”

    “Totally unacceptable” in ObamaSpeak means “naughty”, and “gosh darn I wish you would not do that”, and “I might pout before I go and play another round of golf,” and “maybe I will see if I can the French to stick their tongues out at you.”

    Egypt says 64% voted for the Islamist Constitution..

    yeah right, like Obama really won the election.. *sigh*


  • gastorgrab

    And the Russians are busy trying to hide all Saddam’s WMD’s before the Syrian rebel forces overrun the area.

    The last thing Obama wants to do is interfere with that cleanup. The entire premise of Obama’s first term is somewhat based on the ‘Non-existant’ Iraqi WMD’s.

  • jpmn

    Stay out. Neither side is worth supporting, in fact the longer they kill each other the less likely they will be out killing in other countries.

  • atticcellar

    #1 Ditto!

  • Oliver

    #23 JPMN – the problem with your theory is that the plan calls for the destruction of the SECULAR Assad government so it can be replaced with a Muslim Brotherhood (Shariah) dictatorship. If you think Syria is bad now under Assad, just wait until the MB get the Caliphate they were promised by the NWO.

  • rolling thunder

    Lots of things to consider here. Desperation on Assad’s part, a false flag from the FSA, Iranian agents possibly acting out of either sphere without the others knowledge. Something has definitely happened, but who is to blame at this point in time remains a mystery. We’ll know more in twenty-four hours. Whoever is responsible it’s a major escalation with unforeseen consequences.

  • Sasja

    Our putz of a prez wants to see the MB succeed in Syria. Assad is a devil to be sure but is nothing compared to the MB.

    So far I have been unable to find any corroboration of this story anywhere else.

    We must remember there are Christians in Syria as well. We must remember to pray for them when we pray for Israel and all who have suffered, or will suffer under the jackboot of Satan’s followers.

    People think that Assad just turned into this mass murderer out of no where.
    He is a dictator, this is the truth, but the Muslims in the ME need a strong hand.

    IF we do not help Assad get his country under control, America will be DIRECTLY responsible for the persecution AND slaughter of Christians in Syria.

    The ‘rebels’ are JIHADISTS-and most Americans are siding with the Jihadists.

    So most here would commit to another unwinnable war in the Middle East at a time of economic crisis. And at a time when it is unclear who will be replacing the despot when the dust settles. That strategy has worked out so well in Viet Nam, Iraq, and Afghanistan-Brilliant!

  • The rebels put out a video stating that they had gas too. It was demonstrated on live animals in the video. Who is to say that they didn’t accidentally didn’t gas themselves.

    I am confused. Are they trying to clean him out, or kill him?

  • Oliver

    #30 Mundus: I don’t think that’s what most are saying.
    In fact, I think the reason Obama has been so quiet on Syria is because he knows if he sends in troops, he’ll be putting US soldiers there to fight WITH the Al Qaeda thugs he’s hired (armed) to oust Assad under the guise of freedom fighters. Silence gives him plausible deniability if the plan goes south (like Benghazi).

    But hey — sending US troops to help Al Qaeda operatives armed with guns & rockets supplied by Obama in defiance of Russia, China and Iran — what could possibly go wrong?

  • Dr Dude

    Obama will announce that we need to have a “Conversation” about this. Meaning, When I’m done $hitting my pants I’ll ignore it”.

  • shadow

    Even Al Jazeera call the claims unconfirmed. But it seems being able to use it to crap on Obama is all the confirmation GP needs.
