As one who has ripped the President, rhetorically speaking, since his inception in office, it gives Silverwolf great pleasure to finally agree almost wholeheartedly with the President, and to stand against the majority of his erstwhile Libertarian and Ron Paul-Republican colleagues in their opinions.
For the first time in history, Silverwolf watched a complete Obama speech from beginning to end, for up to this point it had been a question, after three or four minutes of watching or listening, as to whether Silverwolf could reach the door in time to not regurgitate his vegan muck all over the new Axminster.
But tonight Silverwolf listened to Obama, because for once their views were almost congruent. Silverwolf had called for a blasting of the Syrian War Criminal Assad and his top entourage for a long time before the President finally came to the same proposal, and a meally-mouthed proposal at that — targeted strikes against the chemical weapons stashes only — but never a serious attempt to obliterate that gang of terrorists known as the Syrian Government of Child-Murderer Assad by hitting Assad himself.
However, the Ron Paul-Ted Cruz wing was absolutely right in saying that the President could not go to war without the approval of Congress, but only Ron Paul and Son have pointed out the valid point that the drone strikes against various terrorist group leaders in Pakistan and Yemen are equally an act of war. If Republicans and Democrats support those drone strikes, then it follows that they should also support attacks against military and government targets of the Assad Gang of Terrorists.
Silverwolf first took President Obama’s proposal for the complete removal of Assad’s chemical weaons as a namby-pamby backdown in the face of the initial understandably negative reaction of public opinion to the proposal. But after hearing his speech, he now thinks it may be a very clever way of eventually getting to a justification, in the eyes of the American public, for an attack on the Fascist Criminal Assad, for when Assad refuses to comply, as he undoubtedly will, and since it is virtually impossible to ascertain that all chemical weapons are removed from a country as large as Syrian, then the public will feel that Assad has been given a reasonable out by a President very reluctant to use force, and very non-vindictive in tone in his speech. Indeed, the President seemed to speak tonight in terms of the sorrow inflicted by these sadistic callous brutes, rather than in anger at War Crimes that cause Silverwolf to bare his fangs, salivate profusely, and growl. In other words, this proposal may be the President’s very cleverly crafted mode of finally getting public and congressional approval for this very necessary attack — necessary as a deterrent to any further chemical attacks from any of the Miscreant Dictators that are a curse on the people of the Earth. Every murdering one of them ought to be in chains for life, condemned to the most tediously dull labour for their daily plate of gruel and beans, or given the Freedom of Choice to starve themselves to death.
Obama may not have Constitutional authority for this attack, at least currently, but his speech put out to the People the Moral necessity of this deterrent strike very well. It is exactly the same situation, morally speaking, as Rwanda and Sarajevo, Clinton’s War Crimes of Inaction, and the Sharpville Massacre, as well as being, on a smaller scale, the exact same crime as the gassings of troops in World War I and the gassing of civilians in the Holocaust, or the napalming of Vietnamese Women and Children by the War Criminals in the U.S. military of that day, and the War Criminals in War Criminal Lyndon Johnson’s lying administration.
The War Criminal Assad’s War Crime of gassing women and children must not go unpunished; Obama is dead right on this one. For the first time, Silverwolf feels like calling him “Mr. President”.
Mr. President and Congress, please bomb the hell out of that Fascist Child-Murderer Assad! Child-murderers, tremble!
