I thank U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly for adding her name to Rep. Barbara Lee’s letter calling for President Barack Obama to seek a vote in Congress before attacking Syria.
That said, the idea of attacking Syria is absurd. To see Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have no good case for attacking Syria, notice how quickly Kerry made analogies about Nazi Germany.
To liken Syria to Nazi Germany shows Kerry is a liar with no personal honor.
There’s another tell that Obama’s “concern” about chemical weapons, war crimes and international law is phony.
Obama could ask the UN Security Council to refer chemical weapons use allegations to the International Criminal Court. He hasn’t done this. Why not?
Israel and military contractors ultimately want there to be a military conflict between the United States and Iran. The push for bombing Syria is a step toward this goal.
