House Speaker John A. Boehner said today that what “Assad” did was a “barbarous act”, and went above and beyond to get the saber-rattling going in Congress:
“We have enemies around the world that need to understand that we’re not going to tolerate this type of behavior. We also have allies around the world and allies in the region who also need to know that America will be there and stand up when it’s necessary,”
What about when it isn’t necessary? Anyhow, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) also jumped on board to attack Assad, giving another feather to Obama to put in his little “invade Syria” hat, and with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) also supporting these horrendous actions against a democratically-elected president of a foreign country, it looks like that may happen soon.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), however, said that many questions have still not been answered and called on the president “to make the case not only to Congress, but to the American people, in a national address.”
Meanwhile, Israel is sensing our own hesitancy in attacking the Syrian government, and taking matters into their own hands. According to Bloomberg:
Israel conducted what it called a joint test with the U.S. of its Arrow Ballistic Missile Defense system. The Israeli Defense Ministry called it a success.
With the Pentagon’s “technical assistance and support”, geopolitical analyst and former presidential advisor Aaron David Miller pointed out:
“Nobody tests a missile system in the middle of an environment like this without being aware of it being interpreted as a message or signal,”
Indeed, Israel has threatened to attack Iran if they fail to get what they want out of the situation, and even before the latest chemical weapons “attack”, Israel was threatening Syria. There were also other motives – besides scaring the daylights out of the Syrians, Iranians, and Russians – to the testing:
the Israeli test also could help assess the ability of Syrian defenses and Russian ships in the Mediterranean to detect sea-launched missiles, intelligence that could be useful to the U.S. if President Barack Obama orders a cruise-missile attack on targets in Syria
While in one article claiming that the test was long being planned, the BBC points out explicitly that the testing scared even the 2 million refugees that the U.S. and Israel claim to be saving:
Russia said on Tuesday that it had detected two ballistic missiles being launched towards the eastern Mediterranean coastline, sparking speculation of a connection to the Syria crisis.
But Israel later confirmed that it was a joint US-Israel missile test.
Even back in 2004, while now-Secretary of State John Kerry was still friends with Assad and his wife, Asma, and while the U.S. still favored the Syrian government, Israel was already threatening them:
Israeli Deputy Defense Minister Zeev Boim said the Jewish state’s northern neighbor was “a central junction in regional terrorism” and President Bashar al-Assad “works there as the traffic officer.”
“Syria is responsible for directing this terrorism against us and therefore it cannot be immune to our operations aimed at preventing terror,” Boim said on Israel Radio.
Syria’s state radio on Monday said Israel’s practices were keeping the region in a “state of tension and danger” and called on the international community to restrain the Jewish state.
