US Senate recommends studying Syria no-fly zone

http://www.firstpost.com/fwire/us-se...ne-547133.html

Where is the UN in all of this. They can pass resolutions to pick on Israel but when it comes to actual world issues, they are nutless. The UN is just another regime.

Washington, Dec 6 (IANS/RIA Novosti) The US Senate has recommended that President Barack Obama study the possibility of imposing a no-fly zone over Syria.

In an amendment approved Wednesday, the senators voted 92-6 to require the Pentagon to report on options for using US military assets to prevent Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from using air power against opposition forces.

“This amendment is simply a way of saying we in the Senate are concerned, care about the slaughter going on in Syria and agitated that those in the rest of the world are not doing more,” senator from Connecticut Joseph Lieberman said introducing the amendment.

The amendment gives Defense Secretary Leon Panetta 90 days after the enactment of the National Defense Authorization Act to report back to the House and Senate defence committees what options the US has to try to contain the Syrian conflict.

The US administration earlier said it opposed the move. The White House said, however, that it was ready to study all options for ending the Syrian conflict.

Translation: Obama put his finger in the wind to see which way it was blowing and determined public opinion was leaning this way. Obama is a fabulous politician and devoted Socialist, but the words Obama and leadership should not be used in the same sentence.

Here we go again. And the Muslim world will again place the blame on us. Where is the UN? You are correct. And where is Nato? Turkey is a Nato member.

(Reuters) - NATO agreed on Tuesday to send Patriot missiles to Turkey to defend against a possible Syrian missile attack and voiced grave concern about reports that Damascus may be preparing to use chemical weapons.

I think Damascus wants to use chemical weapons on its own people...reminds me of what Sadam Hussein did to the Kurds during the Iran-Iraq War. Oh yeah...Muslim brotherhood at its best.

The worst part is that when Assad falls, the sarin gas weapons are very likely to fall into the hands of Hezbollah and Al Qaeda. Very bad thing.

The good news on that, if you can call it that, is that once the chemical is mixed the bombs have a short shelf life.

I just love the fact that the wikipedia article outlines several ways to extend the life of the material. Nothing like keeping the terrorists up-to-date on how to be more lethal.

All the more reason that we should step back and let them use the stuff ASAP.
