Like you, I've been watching all of the news coverage about Syria. Everyone agrees that their President Assad is poisoning his own people with Saran gas. He has killed hundreds of thousands of them with this weapon of Mass Destruction. For all Republicans that sided with President Bush with his war against Iraq, there WERE NO WEAPONS of Mass Destruction in Iraq.
However, there ARE Weapons of Mass Destruction in Syria. Even Syria's President Assad ADMITS IT and Laughs at the U.S. at being unable to stop him. Assad has poisoned hundreds of thousands of his own people. Poisoned/Murdered them. Little children -- 2 years old -- killed them.
Last year, President Obama told him to stop it. Assad continued to poison more of his own people, innocent children. No one since Hitler has used Poison Gas in such a horrific fashion and Assad is laughing about it. He says the U.S. and our President are weak and are unable to stop him. Assad thinks his friends in Russia and China validate his demonic regime.
Now, our President and his representative, John Kerry - the Secretary of State, are asking Congress for permission to respond. They are NOT asking to go to War. They are asking them to allow specific steps to be taken, with no boots on the ground, in order to stop Assad from continuing to weigh his war against Humanity.
What do we do?
Congress has a decision to make. We have two choices.
1. Do Nothing and allow Assad to continue his Terror. If we do this, we are condoning his actions and thereby allowing him and his supporters to spread this destruction not only within his own borders, but OUTSIDE of his own borders and into the borders of our allies, friends and our own borders.
2. Give the President and his Administration the Authority to take specific action to stop Assad from continuing using this poison gas to murder people.
Will Congress finally give up their personal and political in-fighting and finally allow WE THE PEOPLE to Join Together as ONE NATION to stop Assad from using Saran?
That is the Question.
My Prayers are for Congress to UNITE, stop their Petty Grievances, and Support Our President in Moving Forward.
I've been reading about Syria, Assad and how we've reached this Tipping Point.
Back in 1970, Assad's father, a former General, was put in power. He was a member of the Alawite party. His group was NOT THE Majority, however, their regime was ruthless and brutal in terrorizing the opposition and overpowering them. Assad Sr. wanted his oldest son Basil to succeed him. However, his son died in a car accident. Therefore, his least favorite son, Bashar Assad was next in line and took his place. Bashar was a pompous, spoiled brat. Married to a rich, spoiled English-born brat who loved to spend millions on clothes, cars and toys. Bashar was over zealous and relished his power over the people. He was relentless and demonic when he came into power in 2000. Bashar Assad and his army has been terrorizing his people for years. However, it wasn't until 2011 that he began using Saran Gas.
Saran Gas -- a weapon of Mass Destruction -- so easily used in terror.
If we allow Assad and his supporters to utilize this WMD without any penalty, his supporters will read this as permission to utilize SARAN - WMD outside their borders, in our very own towns, in our very own drinking water, in our very own homes. IF WE DO NOT STOP THE TERROR NOW, THE TERROR WILL ENTER OUR VERY HOMES.
Those using this WMD are not Afraid YET. WE THE PEOPLE have NOT given them reason to fear. Instead, we have been caught up with so much In Fighting that we have NOT allowed ourselves to think about the ramifications of allowing these zealots the Freedom to Terrorize us with Saran.
WE CANNOT ALLOW THEM TO BELIEVE THERE ARE NOT CONSEQUENCES FOR USING SARAN GAS. WE CANNOT. FOR ANYONE WHO BELIEVES OTHERWISE -- I ASK YOU TO THINK AGAIN -- THINK ABOUT YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN. WE CANNOT ALLOW ANYONE -- ANY COUNTRY -- TO BELIEVE THAT THE USE OF SARAN GAS CAN OCCUR WITHOUT CONSEQUENCES.
WE MUST HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE.
WE MUST STAND TOGETHER IN THIS.
I ASK YOU.
I PLEAD WITH YOU.
WE CANNOT ALLOW THE USE OF SARAN GAS -- ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD -- WITHOUT CONSEQUENCES.
