John Bolton spoke last night to Greta about the Syrian situation and was asked about the New York Times saying that we would be ‘advertising our impotence’ if we just lobbed a few missiles and didn’t go for regime change by taking out Assad. But Bolton disagrees with the premise…sorta:

Well we’re advertising the president’s impotence and I think this is important as well. People say the president has put the American credibility on the line, therefore he has to strike. He has damaged our credibility – I acknowledge that. But mostly he’s shredded his own. And it’s about time for the rest of the world to understand that Barack Obama and the United States are not the same thing. We’ve got 1200 days of this left and it’s going to be very costly. But the United States should not be put in a worse position just to help out Barack Obama’s credibility.”

When asked if we should do something militarily simply for humanitarian reasons, to end the conflict, Bolton says absolutely not:

My answer to that is ‘no’ and here’s the hard reality. It is entirely possible that there are humanitarian tragedies all around the world that tug at our hearts. But that doesn’t mean there’s an American interest, one way the other, in resolving the conflict. We’ve got huge interests at stake in the region as a whole, in Syria because of Iran in particular. But there are conflicts where there are no white hats and no American interests. People say we’re not the world’s policeman. That’s not the issue here. The issue here is that we should not use military force in pursuit of abstractions. We are not the world’s nanny.”

There’s more. Watch the full interview below:

    That is certainly a hopeful sentiment Mr. Bolton.
    But the world also knows that the voters of America elected this empty suit TWICE, so in a very real way,
    he is what America has become.

    Of course you’re absolutely correct in your assessment of this ‘phony’ crisis in Syria. If you ask me to choose between a Mubarak and the MB, I have a quick answer. But if you ask me to choose between Assad and al quaeda I have to say
    Who cares?

    Obama needs this crisis to defect the topics and deadlines looming on Oct. 1st. Obamacare implementation and the debt ceiling. Afterall in a  good crisis Congress can’t shut down the Government. And BTW, thanks Brits for the NO vote, I guess BHO’s returning of the Churchill bust had it’s price.

  • Chevypowered

    No_BlahBlah I agree but also the world need to bare their fair share of the responsibility as well. They helped push Obama on us. Remember the first election? When the world was saying how we needed Obama to undue the damage that Bush caused? How they eagerly fell for the hope and change BS like everyone over here did. Remember how the world celebrated like it was the ending to “Return of the Jedi” When Obama won the election? The world thought Obama was the end of US “cowboy” diplomacy and they ate up all his back talk like everyone over here n the US. Now he’s giving them an ulcer like he’s given us. 
    The ding-dongs in the US without a doubt voted for Obama but the world for the second time gave it’s blessing.

    Good point.  But he’s still not (at least I haven’t heard him saying so) fingering the MB in the White House.
    The real question is… when are these talking heads like Bolton finally going to call a spade a spade and demand a thorough congressional investigation into the the influence of the MB in Obama’s Whitehouse, in DHS and in Defence.

  • colliemum

    Two points were made in the Parliamentary debate last night which are well worth pushing internationally.
    The first was that the Arab League, who was clamouring for Western (that is USA/UK) military intervention a week ago yesterday suddenly retreated, saying we should wait for the UN SC resolution. IAW – they got cold feet, why?
    The second and more important point was that there is no reason whatsoever for the Arab League not to intervene themselves, militarily because they do have a huge arsenal of weapons, curtesy of our countries. 
    So why us? Why not let these tribes sort themselves, especially given that SA and Qatar were pushing for destroying Assad, and are arming the rebels, especially the jihadi terrorists? 
    We all know what the result of our intervention would be: more muslims of the flavour-du-jour being offended and taking the fight into our own streets, and more refugees trying to come and live in our countries.
    Some commentator made the point (tin foil hat on) that perhaps that is the aim: have more and more muslims flood our countries so that their dream of a world caliphate can come into being all the sooner …

  • badbadlibs

    The contrast between President Bush and the lousy comrade o is stark. I’ll take a “cowboy” (at least they are American and believe in the 2nd amendment). President Bush didn’t shoot from the hip or lead from behind or ask a mommy Jarrett permission to use the toilet. He may not have been the conservative of my dreams, but he wasn’t the un-American Marxist of my nightmares.
    Where’s the world uproar over comrade stink going this alone? The news this morning reported the stinking potus “rejects” any similarities between Syria and the war in Iraq. Well, yea, you moron, President Bush went to congress and actually got a working COALITION of WILLING partners.
    There’s a difference between America and the louse in the oval office, but the lines are blurred.

  • deTocqueville1

    He makes a good point about the distinction between the Country and its President. Othewise a lot of vagueness about foreign policy and America’s role in the world. I suspect he is in fact an interventionist and a ‘democracy project’ guy at heart which is why he avoids specifics. We need a Reagan type of foreign policy like the one Palin laid out a couple of years ago in Colorado.

  • colliemum

    badbadlibs Thanks – but actually, the leadership – Cameron, the deputy PM and the leader of the opposition – wouldn’t have minded to have a tiny little war. 
    It was the people, we, who’ve not just filled the MSM comments pages, but who’ve e-mailed our representatives, who said that from 100 e-mails only one was for military intervention. and they listened, for once.
    So you can do exactly the same, as Sen Ted Cruz keeps telling you.

    n the comments on the DT, those hacks who bewail this vote are getting short shrift (one favourite is: if you are so keen on fighting Assad, why don’t you go and join the rebels yourself? People did in the Spanish Civil War …), and a certain MP is getting kicked for being ever so anti-government, but then voting for them last night.

    colliemum  I don’t think it’s such a tin foil hat idea. I made that very prediction to a politically astute friend a few days ago. His response was only, “Nothing surprises me anymore.” It would certainly fit with the pattern of re-settlement of other nationalities of muslims in the “less diverse” sections of this country. Many of us are convinced that, too is part of the plan: break up homogenous communities with enclaves of muslims. Looking ahead to the day the signal is given for a full-throttle American jihad.

    We the people have sadly let the power of the executive branch choke off our representative form of governemnt.
    We the people have sadly failed to remove a Congress complicit with that usurpation.
    Now,  like abused slaves, we look toward the next dictator who will ascend to that throne, hoping he or she will be more benevolent or one that will give us back our freedoms.
    We have to take them back. No one is coming to save us. We the People must vote out the subversion and take back our House. Our States must take back thier Senate. Then we must relegate the office of President to that fo chief administrator, as intended by our Founders.

    Only then will there be some small chance that president and the United States represent the same thing.

    Nothing.

  • DeborahClemence

    The answer is to circumvent the federal leviathan and call for a state convention to amend the Constitution.  Mark Levin’s new book lays out the historical and Constitutional premise and suggests eleven possible amendments that would restore the balance of power between the states and the federal government and restore republic so that this would become a truly representative government again.  Washington will never fix itself – it is too corrupt and broken,  and just electing conservatives would be a good thing, but they won’t be able to undo all the damage that has been done.

    “For the sake of our country, the legitimacy of our cause and our ultimate success in Iraq, the administration must seek advice and APPROVAL from Congress, laying out the evidence and making the case. Then, in concert with our allies, it must seek full enforcement of the existing cease-fire agreement from the United Nations Security Council. We should at the same time offer a clear ultimatum to Iraq before the world: Accept rigorous inspections without negotiation or compromise.”

    Video: Biden Threatening to Impeach President (Bush) If He Launches an Attack Without Congressional Authority
    27 Aug 2013
    Biden (2007): I was chairman of the judiciary committee for 17 years or its ranking member. I teach separation of powers and constitutional law. This is something I know. So I got together and brought a group of constitutional scholars together to write a piece that I’m going to deliver to the whole United State Senate pointing out the President (Bush) has no constitutional authority…to take this nation to war against a county of 70 million people unless we’re attacked or unless there is proof we are about to be attacked. And if he does, if he does, I would move to impeach him. The House obviously has to do that but I would lead an effort to impeach him.”

    Flip Flop? Double Standard?
    Once staunch opponent of Bush Iraq policy, Obama faces similar path on Syria
    August 30, 2013
    During an April 2007 speech to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Obama said the U.S. cannot try to “bully [the world] into submission.”
    In a 2007 essay in Foreign Affairs, he specifically warned about breaking off from European allies: “In the case of Europe, we dismissed European reservations about the wisdom and necessity of the Iraq war.”
    During his July 2008 campaign speech in Berlin, Obama told Europeans that “no one nation, no matter how large or powerful, can defeat such challenges alone.” He warned that “on both sides of the Atlantic, we have drifted apart, and forgotten our shared destiny” and that neither America nor Europe can “turn inward.”

    LOUDER TED!!
    Sen. Ted Cruz: Congress must have say on Syria before Obama acts
    Thursday, August 29, 201
    “When and if President Obama makes a decision on Syria, he must immediately call a special session of Congress and persuade the American people that what he proposes is critical to the defense of our nation,” Mr. Cruz said. “I am confident all members of Congress would willingly return to Washington to work with him on this issue.”
    MR. CRUZ SAID THAT MR. OBAMA’S COMMENTS SUGGEST THE NATION DOES NOT FACE AN IMMINENT THREAT, SO “ONLY” CONGRESS HAS THE AUTHORITY TO DECLARE WAR.
    He said the U.S. should take the lead of the the British House of Commons and the Israeli Knesset, which have called emergency meetings to take up the subject.

    The glorification of the Presidency has reached Cult status. Mao would be content with the adoration.
    The people of the United States have to understand that a person who becomes President is still an ordinary person. Not even the Vatican raises a Pope to God on earth. 
    And one more thing about the United States. Our nation exists because we have a Constitution. Not because we have a national government. In fact, the national socialist government of the Cult is making mincemeat of the Constitution. Each day we are closer to a Maoist Cult regime than a land of Liberty, free of tyranny from the national socialist government.

    Wolf: Congress should return for Syria vote
    8/30/2013
    WASHINGTON – Congress should break off its five-week vacation and return to Capitol Hill for a vote on whether to use military force in Syria, says Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va.
    “The British Parliament came back and they voted. So if the British Parliament can come back, then Congress ought to come back,” Wolf said in an interview with WTOP on Friday.
    British lawmakers voted Thursday against supporting U.S. military action in Syria.
    Wolf says there’s no reason members of Congress can’t come back to Washington if the president presses ahead with a possible military response to Syria’s suspected use of chemical weapons.
    The Republican lawmaker says he doesn’t think it’s enough for a small group of lawmakers to consult with the White House.
    “I think the Congress has to come back into session and that Congress has to vote,” Wolf says.
    “Just consultation is not enough, and particularly just consultation with a couple members of the leadership too.”

    ++++++
    US government’s assessment of Syria’s use of chemical weapons
    Published August 30, 2013
    White House Unclassified Intel Report
    Preparations:
    We have intelligence that leads us to assess that Syrian chemical weapons personnel – including personnel assessed to be associated with the SSRC – were preparing chemical munitions prior to the attack. In the three days prior to the attack, we collected streams of human, signals and geospatial intelligence that reveal regime activities that we assess were associated with preparations for a chemical weapons attack.
    Syrian chemical weapons personnel were operating in the Damascus suburb of ‘Adra from Sunday, August 18 until early in the morning on Wednesday, August 21 near an area that the regime uses to mix chemical weapons, including sarin.
    On August 21, a Syrian regime element prepared for a chemical weapons attack in the Damascus area, including through the utilization of gas masks.
    Our intelligence sources in the Damascus area did not detect any indications in the days prior to the attack that opposition affiliates were planning to use chemical weapons.

The problem is Obama not only has no experience with foreign affairs he has no advisers who aren’t ideologues like himself. He’s surrounded himself with people who don’t care about American interests only their own policies and forwarding them. I doubt any of them disagree with Obama about much of anything including making this about Obama instead of the United states.

    Orangeone DeborahClemence   You are confusing a Constitutional Convention with a State Convention to Amend the Constitution.  This second type of convention is provided for in Article V of the Constitution and is controlled by the states and any amendment must be ratified by 3/5 of the states, so it is a difficult process and the progressives would have little chance of getting anything through since the convention is called for a specific purpose.  Fears of a runaway convention are unwarranted because it is NOT a Constitutional Convention and we are faced with a runaway president, Congress, and SCOTUS… so it has become a moot point. George Mason added this to the Constitution because he feared that the federal government might become too powerful and he wanted to make a provision for the citizens and the states to circumvent the federal government altogether and that is exactly where we are!  Lets’ face it, the power of the progressives is centered in the federal government.  The GOP has made massive inroads in state legislatures and it is the state legislatures who will control this entire process.  It will not be easy – but it is a constitutional solution as an alternative to an armed revolution. Listen to Mark on the radio – check out the program he did with Sean Hannity and an audience filled with conservatives with the Q&A about this… read Levin’s book  – before you make judgments based on misinformation!

    DeborahClemence Orangeone I hear what you are saying but the Progressives can also call for a State Convention  and have a MUCH better shot of getting I the percentage needed to destroy the Constitution. State funding comes from the federal government which means Obama controls every state gov’t because he has their funding.
    If you believe that this current administration would not seize the opportunity to finish destroying this country you are fooling yourself. It is not misinformation it is fact.  Obama has gutted welfare reform which is unconstitutional.  Obama and Congress passed ObamaCare which is unconstitutional.  How many “conservative” governors signed on tot he ObamaCare Medicaid expansion?  How many “conservative” governors are spewing illegal alien amnesty?  How many “conservative” governors pulled the state share of welfare funding when the work requirement was illegally removed?  ZERO.  How many “conservative” states now have homosexual marriage?  Too many.
    Feel free to give the states your freedom, I won’t. They are more dangerous than the federal gov’t.

    Orangeone DeborahClemence   Then you resign yourself to the destruction of our Republic because the federal government will never reform itself and if you are unwilling to try the recourse that is prescribed in the Constitution there is no way to stop this.  And this is not about the governors of the states who have surrendered to the federal government, it is about the state LEGISLATURES who answer more closely to their constituents if they want to be re-elected – it is the best chance we have got!

    Barack Hussein Obama,
    the Community Agitator in Chief, now says he will seek Congressional approval
    before taking action against Syria. Obama claims actions should be taken
    because there are pictures of dead men, women and children from being gassed by
    the Assad government. The Obama Regime is NOT trustworthy, so how do we know it
    was the Assad Government? It
    could have been AlQaeda. And if
    there were no pictures of the dead would he be so adamant about attacking
    Syria? Or is it more likely that Obama wants to attack Syria to save face from
    when he acted and spoke “stupidly” by drawing the red line?
     Obama claims he could have taken action
    without Congressional approval, but it will send a stronger message to the
    World to seek and have approval. Obama states, “I don’t expect every nation to
    agree with the decision we have made.” What decision is that? Congress has not even met yet. What if
    Congress does not support striking Syria? Article one, Section eight of the US
    Constitution reads, “The
    Congress shall have Power To… declare War, grant  and , and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;”… 
    Obama said, “I’m ready
    to act in the face of this outrage.” What does that mean? Sounds like Obama
    does not care what Congress thinks or does he will strike Syria, anyway. We do
    not have a “King or Dictator.” Congress
    has the authority to declare war, not Obama.
    US should not intervene in Syria, because of Obama’s lack of leadership
    and his loose lips. It is a little too late to get involved in Syria. Today it
    is like two rival gangs fighting each other and one is just as bad as the
    other. Therefore, it is not to the United States benefit to get involved and
    potentially start WWIII.

    mzaz86442 Don’t forget the civilian national guard, which means the union workers attached like an appendage to the government. I always said the unions would be on the front lines of the Communist take over. Unions in every way resemble the elites of Communist rule. You can see it in how they get special treatment using government. Bad economy, they get a raise at tax payer dime. Better health care at the expense of the tax payer. Tenure; they can screw a dog in the middle of the work place and still not get fired.. Pensions; after 20 years they are eligible for a full pension. That means at 40 they can get another job (with full pay) and receive what someone in the private sector are not eligible until 65.
