Reports from the Pentagon to the media indicate that the United States could launch missile attacks as early as this Thursday.
The information from the Pentagon today, said the missile attacks will last for at least three days, and they will be launched from four U.S. Destroyers and submarines.
U.S. defense officials told NBC that the Navy has four warship armed with ballistic missiles in the eastern Mediterranean Sea just waiting for orders to launch their missiles into Syria.
President Obama said that he is not ready to commit any ground forces or set up a no-fly zone at the moment.
Our nation is tired of wars, we have spent trillions and will spend trillions more to take care of our wounded from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Americans are war weary, our military is war weary, and our economy is war weary, but obviously most of our politicians are not.
A few months ago President Obama said that if Syria uses chemical or biological weapons in their civil war, it will cross a red line. In recent weeks we have seen video, horrific video of dead or dying Syrians from the use of chemical weapons. But the U.S. has a non-intervention policy with regards to civil wars.
State Department Secretary John Kerry said yesterday that there is no doubt that the WMD’s were used by Al-Assad and the Syrian government.
A war with Syria has greater ramifications in the region than the wars with Iraq and Afghanistan had. A war with Syria, will lead Iran, Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas on the Gaza strip, into an all-out war, and they are supported by Russia’s Putin.
Israel will take the biggest hit with a War with Syria, but Israel’s Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu sees this as an opportunity to take out Iran’s nuclear program at the same time.
If we have an all-out war with Syria, and if our involvement escalates along with Syria’s allies, this will indeed turn into World War III.
A poll released by Reuters/Ipsos two days ago, shows that 60 percent of Americans are against an intervention with Syria.
Earlier this year there was another poll showing that 90 percent of Americans were in favor of “Gun Background Checks”, but the NRA said “No”, and the politicians voted “No”.
60 percent of Americans today are against a war with Syria, do we really have to wonder what the U.S. Military Industrial Complex is telling our Politicians.
American needs to know what’s at stake with a war with Syria and the global ramifications that it would bring, but with the right wing media and the main stream media merely spewing opinions that divide the public, they will not hear the facts and the realities, until it’s too late.
