Going the Extra Yard

compelling-evidence-of-syrian-chemical-attack-says-us-lawmaker_280813052447Using chemical weapons is probably the worst war crime a government can commit against its peoples.  Those governments that commit this heinous crime need to be removed from power as quickly as possible and punished as an example to others.  The pictures and reports out of Syria seem to indicate chemical weapons were used against a small village outside Damascus by the Assad regime.  Of course the Assad government rejected these accusations and at first refused to allow UN investigators into the area.  Five days later after most of the evidence had been bombed away or just went inert they allowed them in.   The UN, which always moves with the speed of a turtle, is still examining all the samples and information they have gathered.  Staunch allies of the Assad regime, Russia and Iran, call all this American propaganda and say we have made this all up so we can trample on the rights of another sovereign state.  Well both of them should know they have done the same thing for decades. us destryerEarlier last week the United States move four missile destroyers within striking range of Syria.  Great Briton has moved one of its cruise missile submarines there also.  There they will sit till the United States has enough proof to go public.  The UN, in its infinite wisdom, is calling for a diplomatic solution to the problem.  The will never learn, they still go to a gunfight with a knife and wonders why everyone has no respect for them.  While the UN sits on the own backsides and chatter about diplomatic solutions more woman and children die. The United States does not need the UN’s approval before they can take action.  NATO has already condemned Syria for its use of WMD’s.  The really sad thing is International Law does not prohibit it.  So it is up to those countries that have the ability to act to carry all the responsibility.  I have no doubt that we will use military force but I hope we have irrefutable proof before we act.  We need to show the world that what we have said is the truth and that the Russians and Iranians are defending a criminal regime out to kill their own people. scruise missilesWhen we strike we need to hit hard and make it a surgical strike on Command and Control facilities, military airfields, troop locations and communication centers.  We need to let the world know exactly where we stand and that we will not tolerate this kind of butchery no matter where it is located in the world. “You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.” Ronald Reagan
