Obama Gives Syria a Pass on Chemical Weapons. Will He Stop Iran’s Nukes?

President Obama would have us believe he would be stalwart in applying “snap back” sanctions on Iran should it violate its nuclear commitments. That would be nice but hardly realistic given the administration’s non-response to growing evidence that Syria’s Bashar Assad has violated the agreement to give up his chemical weapons. Not only has Assad been using chlorine gas (which was not formally covered by the accord negotiated in 2013 between Washington and Moscow) but United Nations inspectors have also found evidence of sarin and VX during to the Scientific Studies and Research Center outside Damascus.

    The State Dept muttered something last week about possibly directly supporting Assad. Of course he’s giving them a pass on chemical weapons. Of course he’s running cover for Hezbollah. Of course he’ll pout and scream at the Jews in the first instance of their response to a chemical missile attack by Hezbollah. Of course he’s given a wave to Iran’s nukes. Iran already has a nuclear gadget – a non deployable nuclear device. Obama knows this and all of this ‘negotiation’ is just theater until Obama and Iran agree on the best time to announce Iran is finally a nuclear state. The Arab states are running for the doors so Obama’s job now is run cover for Iran but at the same time not incite the Arabs to attack Iran. The tactic Obama has chosen is to get the Arab Islamic psychos to kill each other in the Arab states that are predominately Sunni with assistance from the Shiites.

    Obama wants the easy way out to a dubious legacy.

  • Enough already. This guy should be serving time.

  • FactsWillOut

    Equating Assad’s secular state with Iran’s mad 12ers is the height of folly.

  • Nope.

    He was never serious about stopping ISIS. As Assad may be an SOB, he is not an Islamist SOB which creates a problem for Obama.
