Insists Obama Can Attack No Matter What Congress Says
Pushing the war in Syria has become the Obama Administration’s singular drive, brushing aside myriad other issues to focus on cowing the American public into accepting their desire to attack Syria at all costs.
On Sunday, Kerry very explicitly likened Assad to Adolf Hitler, insisting the two, along with Saddam Hussein, are the only ones accused of using chemical weapons, assuming one sets an arbitrary cut-off date that avoids literally everyone involved in World War 1 and several others in that era.
Today, Kerry did it again, likening next week’s war vote to the 1938 Munich agreement, in which British Prime Minister Nevile Chamberlain sought to avoid war with Germany.
The implication is clear, that somehow the Obama Administration’s desire to launch what they continue to insist will be a very “limited” strike on Syria that they don’t intend to have any impact on the ground is the equivalent of World War 2.
Incredibly, as Kerry continues to resort to histrionics in hopes of getting his way, he keeps insisting President Obama has the “power” and “right” to attack no matter what Congress thinks of the matter. This too seems to be part of the rhetoric, warning Congress that if it wants to maintain the pretense of oversight it better do as it’s told.
