None of our business and the public is dead set against it.

Gen. Dempsey: US Considering Use of Force in Syria


The nation's top military officer told a Senate panel Thursday the Obama administration is deliberating whether to use military power in Syria, where a civil war entering its third year has killed almost 93,000 people.

Amid an increasing clamor among President Bashir Assad's opposition for active U.S. involvement, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey said during congressional testimony that he has provided President Barack Obama with options for the use of force. But he declined to detail those choices, saying "it would be inappropriate for me to try to influence the decision with me rendering an opinion in public about what kind of force we should use."

The remarks by the Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman came after Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., asked him which approach in Syria would carry a greater risk: continued limited action on the part of Washington or more significant actions such as the establishment of a no-fly zone and arming the rebel forces with the weapons they need to stem the advance Assad's forces.

"Senator, I am in favor of building a moderate opposition and supporting it," Dempsey said. "The question whether to support it with direct kinetic strikes ... is a decision for our elected officials, not for the senior military leader of the nation."

  1. Obama continues his attempt to build a muslim stronghold in the middle east. when will someone say enough?

    1. The anti-war left is strangely silent now that one of theirs is in office. Nothing to see here, keep right on moving.........

  2. These days I find myself reading the Bible more. Perhaps I am just getting closer to that age and coming to grips with my mortality. However, I see more of the signs I read about beginning to happen. War has always been a part of mankind. Even during WWII arguably a war on the largest scale in history only a small number of nations were actively involved. The vast majority stood on the sidelines. Today we have wars involving many more countries abet on a smaller scale. It just seems the entire world is at war. I look at the world and remember Matthew 24:6-8,
    "6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
    7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
    8 All these are the beginning of sorrows."

    We have our own government flying surveillance and probably killer drones in our skies. We have our own congress repeal the laws that banned our government from spreading propaganda to the American citizen. If you think the sludge coming from Washington was deep before just wait now the floodgates are opened. We had little reason to believe anything they told us before, now there will be ZERO honesty.

    The DOJ sending a front group to protest Zimmerman was made legal. You can thank Republicans in the house. Our government can now "create" news and information then spoon feed it to the lap-dog-media for public dissemination. Welcome to Amerika.


    1. now there will be ZERO honesty.

      Agreed and I just mentioned yesterday that I do not believe one word from the government any more. An administration of fools.
