Lieberman, Rove, Kristol Urge Obama to Attack Syria

In an open letter to President Obama a group warmongers have urged  President Obama to impose "meaningful consequences on the Assad regime."

"At a minimum, the United States, along with willing allies and partners, should use standoff weapons and airpower to target the Syrian dictatorship’s military units that were involved in the recent large-scale use of chemical weapons.  It should also provide vetted moderate elements of Syria’s armed opposition with the military support required to identify and strike regime units armed with chemical weapons," says the letter.

Below is the full letter and list of signatories.

Dear Mr. President,

Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad has once again violated your red line, using chemical weapons to kill as many as 1,400 people in the suburbs of Damascus.  You have said that large-scale use of chemical weapons in Syria would implicate “core national interests,” including “making sure that weapons of mass destruction are not proliferating, as well as needing to protect our allies [and] our bases in the region.”  The world—including Iran, North Korea, and other potential aggressors who seek or possess weapons of mass of destruction—is now watching to see how you respond.

We urge you to respond decisively by imposing meaningful consequences on the Assad regime.  At a minimum, the United States, along with willing allies and partners, should use standoff weapons and airpower to target the Syrian dictatorship’s military units that were involved in the recent large-scale use of chemical weapons.  It should also provide vetted moderate elements of Syria’s armed opposition with the military support required to identify and strike regime units armed with chemical weapons.

Moreover, the United States and other willing nations should consider direct military strikes against the pillars of the Assad regime.  The objectives should be not only to ensure that Assad’s chemical weapons no longer threaten America, our allies in the region or the Syrian people, but also to deter or destroy the Assad regime’s airpower and other conventional military means of committing atrocities against civilian non-combatants.  At the same time, the United States should accelerate efforts to vet, train, and arm moderate elements of Syria’s armed opposition, with the goal of empowering them to prevail against both the Assad regime and the growing presence of Al Qaeda-affiliated and other extremist rebel factions in the country.

Left unanswered, the Assad regime’s mounting attacks with chemical weapons will show the world that America’s red lines are only empty threats.  It is a dangerous and destabilizing message that will surely come to haunt us—one that will certainly embolden Iran’s efforts to develop nuclear weapons capability despite your repeated warnings that doing so is unacceptable.  It is therefore time for the United States to take meaningful and decisive actions to stem the Assad regime’s relentless aggression, and help shape and influence the foundations for the post-Assad Syria that you have said is inevitable.

Sincerely,


Ammar Abdulhamid

  1. Someone needs to go each of these sociopathic neocons (or their military age children, or grandchildren) and offer them each an enlistment contract to sign.

    DoD does offer waivers for age for those who really want to enlist and who can pass a physical fitness test; especially for those with important skill sets (like propaganda creation perhaps). Enlistees can also specify military occupational specialty preference for infantry, artillery or other combat arms.

    I would love to see a video of each of these chicken hawks pushing away the enlistment contract and signature pen as they scurry away, red-faced.

  2. "...Syrian dictatorship’s military units that were involved in the recent large-scale use of chemical weapons."

    By "involved", do they mean, "victim of", or "target of"?

  4. I think any liberal neocon or conservative neocon who wants to go into Syria should buy a plane ticket.

    1. Raimondo exposed this neocon just merely by repeating the "out" magazine main theme of kirchick's to have segregated gay units of soldiers. How well would this go over with the evangelical war mongers and foxnews chicken hawks? Which is why it is never mentioned to their audience.

  8. Jamie kirchick is the chickenhawk queen obsessed with Ron Paul. He literally once called for a gay brigade of marines to go around killing people to prove gays can be tough, too! For some reason this is never highlighted on rush or Fox News when they are repeating his lies and stalker like obsession over Ron Paul. When you see what he looks like it is even more hilarious that he is always for attacking some nation bc he is as effeminate as can be - he sort of reminds me of an even gayer version of Lindsey graham.

  9. Dear Mr. President,
    The people that signed their names to this "request" DO NOT represent the United States of America or the People there in. Please disregard this letter as it is affront to the very Constitution the YOU swore to protect and defend when you took the office. Furthermore, please don't listen to ANYONE of the listed people on this ridiculous demand because they are all "WARMONGERS". They care not for the Constitution or the people that is on it.
    Respectful, a true citizen, not some paid HACK.

  10. Lol Tom woods really owned Jamie chickenhawkchick by asking how it is that someone with every possible advantage of writing for all the major establishment sources still only has 4600 followers on twitter.
