2016: Latest polls show Christie has recaptured the leading spot in the GOP contest because Ted Cruz’s rise is taking away some of Rand Paul’s support.

President Obama's New Pen Pal

After vacillating for weeks on what to do regarding his red line for the use of chemical weapons in Syria and ultimately retreating, President Obama laid down yet another of his meaningless red lines for Iran. "My suspicion is that the Iranians recognize they shouldn't draw a lesson that we haven't struck [Syria] to think we won't strike Iran," Obama warned in an interview with ABC that aired last Sunday. "I think what the Iranians understand is that the nuclear issue is a far larger issue for us than the chemical weapons issue." There is little doubt that the Iranians have learned precisely the opposite from Obama's back-and-forth flirtation with military action over the last several weeks. Since Secretary of State John Kerry had signaled that any attack against Syria would be "unbelievably small," it is not difficult to imagine Iran's leadership concluding that an attack against Iran, if any, would be small as well.

Russia Rising

Following up on its proposal to place Syria's chemical weapons stockpiles under international control for inspection and destruction, Russia submitted its plan to implement this proposal to the United States for review. One day after President Obama's primetime televised speech in which he called for a diplomatic pause before moving forward with any military action against the Assad regime, Secretary of State John Kerry sounded a hopeful note. He liked what he heard from his phone conversation on Wednesday with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, whom, Kerry said, "had some interesting observations about the ways in which he thinks we might be able to achieve this." This situation is not likely to be resolve so simply, however, and geopolitical complications appear to be mounting, as Russian President Putin senses his advantage and Obama's weakness. [more...]

Assad's Agreement to Int'l WMD Supervision Game Changer

The Syrian regime, at Russia's urging, has agreed to permit international supervision of its weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in order to avoid U.S. military action. Bashar Assad's announcement came after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry gave an unplanned answer to a reporter's question about how Assad could avoid American strikes. He dismissively said that Assad could entirely dismantle his chemical and biological weapons stockpiles. Shockingly, Russia publicly called on Assad to do just that and the Syrian dictator agreed. [more...]

Is it Moral or Smart to Attack Syria?

The world reacted with justified moral indignation to Syria's use of poison gas on humans.  The Obama administration apparently feels that the USA is therefore morally obligated to attack Syria.  It may at first seem counter-intuitive, but an ancient Jewish principle is that when one group of people is being massacred by another group, an unaligned third nation should NOT dispatch their own soldiers, some of whom will die, in order to save many more of the victims. Accordingly, America should NOT send even a few of its soldiers to their deaths in Syria in order to save many more Syrian lives. Doing so is not morally righteous.

Obama Addresses American Islamist Convention

President Obama addressed the 50th annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America via videotape, praising the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity for its partnership with his administration. A Clarion Project report showed that the convention's roster of speakers includes many extremists. "Over the last half-century, you’ve upheld the proud legacy of American-Muslims' contributions to our national fabric and this gathering is a testament to that tradition," Obama says to ISNA. [more...]

Brigitte Gabriel on the Syria Decision

Is America getting ready to unleash the dogs of war based on faulty intelligence?  The UN fact finding mission to Syria is still unconvinced that Assad was the one who used the chemical weapons.

In addition the original intelligence report provided by the Israeli intelligence "Unit 8200 electronic intelligence" group reveals that the August 21st attack was a staged attack by the rebels to force America to get involved in Syria.

Assad had been on a winning streak and it had become clear that America was losing interest in supporting what America perceived as increasingly radicalized rebels. Therefore, by using Sarin gas on their own people, the rebels knew they can force America to come and take out Assad or at least weaken him drastically, thus paving the way for a major game changer in Syria.

ACT for America, the nation's largest national security grassroots organization headed by leading terrorism expert Brigitte Gabriel, has launched a national petition urging the White House: "Don't drag us into another Middle Eastern war and don't arm the Syrian Rebels."

Brigitte Gabriel is available for interviews for an up-to-date analysis on Syria and the ramifications of an American attack in the Middle East.
