The Obama Gas War... Who are you going to believe...hopefully not Kerry or Biden

Something to think about...
When I asked the question, "Who are you going to believe?" you should consider the following:
Facts that we know are 100% accurate:
  1.  The Muslim Brotherhood are part of the Syrian equation;
  2.  The Mulsim Brotherhood hates Alawite Muslims.
  3.  Assad is an Alawite Muslim
  4.  The Muslim Brotherhood wants to destroy Israel and western ideology.
  5.  Obama supports the Muslim brotherhood.
  6.  Obama stated in August of 2011 that Assad must go (Actual quote: “For the sake of the Syrian
      people, the time has come for President Assad to step aside.”)
  8.  It has been reported that Saudi Prince Bandar supplied chemical weapons to Syrian rebels.
  9.  Obama is a friend and has met with Saudi Prince Bandar.
10.  Obama has been known to lie frequently

Without putting too much thought into the above facts look at item #5 and ask yourself the following:
Why would you support anyone who wants to destroy you and your belief system? ...see video

According to Al-Masry Al-Youm the Muslim Brothers are bragging about their victory in Egypt and the future attainment of Hasan Al-Banna's Jihadist vision (Islamofascism for all).The Muslim Brotherhood is close to achieving the “ultimate goal” set by the group's founder Hassan al-Banna in 1928, which is the establishment of a “just and reasonable regime.” source Fatwa on Islam
Actually, I believe her before I would believe Obama, Biden, Kerry, Hillary, Hagel, Brennan, Pelosi, etc., etc., ...combined!
And then there's this from the New York Times...of all people!

U.N. Rights Panel Cites Evidence of War Crimes by Both Sides in Syria

GENEVA — As the United States and Russia searched for a diplomatic solution to the crisis over Syria’s chemical weapons, a four-person United Nations rights panel presented detailed evidence on Wednesday of what it said were war crimes and crimes against humanity being committed by pro-government forces and, to a lesser extent, rebels in the 30-month-old conflict.
Bolstered by arms and money from regional and global powers waging a proxy war, Syria’s government and rebel forces have committed murder, torture, rape and indiscriminate attacks on civilians on a huge scale, believing they can win a military victory and without fear of future punishment, the panel, a Commission of Inquiry that was expanded last fall, said in its latest report, to be presented to the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva on Monday.  ...full story here
I 've never been a fan of Alan Grayson but look at this: (from NewsMax)
U.S Representative  Alan Grayson (D-Florida): Whit House Manipulated Data to Support Syria Strike
Rep. Alan Grayson charged on Thursday that the Obama administration had manipulated intelligence to push its case for limited military strikes against Syrian President Bashar Assad in the country's civil war.
"The administration wants to flood the zone by excluding other information or points of view," the Florida Democrat told U.S. News & World Report. "I think that it is interesting that the administration consistently refers to Assad doing this and Assad doing that and Assad doing the other thing without giving the public any evidence to support the proposition that Assad has done anything."
Grayson, who plans to vote against Obama's Syrian resolution next week, contended that Congress was being given intelligence briefings without any evidence to support administration claims that Assad had ordered the use of chemical weapons in last month's attacks in the suburbs of Damascus.
Released on Aug. 30, the White House report argued that Assad's government killed 1,429 people on Aug. 21 through chemical weapons.
Evidence cited in the document included "intercepted communications involving a senior official intimately familiar with the offensive who confirmed that chemical weapons were used."
Grayson, however, told U.S. News that "the claim has been made that that information was completely mischaracterized."
He described the four-page White House report as merely "a briefing paper with arguments in favor of attacking Syria" that "doesn't present both sides of the issue."
Congress is "not being given any of the underlying elements of the intelligence reports," Grayson told U.S. News.
He said he was not sure if the information would come before the votes on Obama's strike resolution next week.

Norm: Do you believe any of this? I find it difficult
 Then there was this email with a follow-up answer...

Absolutely !!!
I've studied Obama long enough and wouldn't put it past him!
It is well known that Obama has been supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and Sunni Muslims.  Assad is an Alawite Muslim...extremely hated by other Muslim sects (interesting side note: Alawites believe in a Trinity).
The Muslim Brotherhood's main mission is to do away with western ideology...says so in their founding documents. They have also supported the infiltration of Muslims into all factions of the American political system...these are well-known facts not reported by the main stream media which is mostly owned by left wing radicals determined to do away with the United States... one world government if you will...
The one world government crowd has crossed party lines thats why nothing seems to get done in Washington...Bush 41 was a very strong advocate of one world government as was Bill Clinton and so many more...
Getting back to the Muslims... What do you think Dir of the CIA John Brennan's ideology/religion is?  He converted to Islam while Station Chief at the CIA unit in Saudia Arabia...  'nough said !!!
Then there was this headline over at Pat Dollard...
Reports: Saudi Prince Bandar Using U.S. To Topple Assad
According to reports in Mint Press News made by veteran Associated Press reporter Dale Gavlak, the chemical attack came from Syrian rebel arms by Prince Bandar, not the Assad regime. Gavlak writes, “The U.S., Britain, and France as well as the Arab League have accused the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for carrying out the chemical weapons attack, which mainly targeted civilians.  ...continued here

Then there was this story over at Freedom Outpost...
Bold emphasis mine. ~ Storm'n Norm'n

The U.S. and others are not interested in examining any contrary evidence, with U.S Secretary of State John Kerry saying Monday that Assad's guilt was 'a judgment … already clear to the world.'"

Gavlak's report states that the U.S. is not interested in differing opinion, despite evidence that points to Saudi Arabian Prince Bandar.
The report continues,
"However, from numerous interviews with doctors, Ghouta residents, rebel fighters and their families, a different picture emerges. Many believe that certain rebels received chemical weapons via the Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, and were responsible for carrying out the dealing gas attack."
"They didn't tell us what these arms were or how to use them," complained a female fighter named 'K.' "We didn't know they were chemical weapons. We never imagined they were chemical weapons."
"When Saudi Prince Bandar gives such weapons to people, he must give them to those who know how to handle and use them," she warned.
She, like other Syrians, do not want to use their full names for fear of retribution.
Prince Bandar is said to have close ties to Washington, serving as Saudi Arabia's ambassador. According to a report in the UK's The Independent, Prince Bandar has re-emerged as a pivotal figure in the struggle by America and its allies to tilt the battlefield balance against the regime in Syria. full story here

Then there was this headline at the Tehran Times...

Saudi Prince Bandar behind chemical attack in Syria
Syrians in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta say Saudi Arabia provided chemical weapons for an Al-Qaeda linked terrorist group which they blame for the August 21 chemical attack in the region, a Mint Press News report says. full story here

Then there was this statement from The Times of Israel...
Moscow doesn’t believe chemical weapons findings, ...full story here

Then I made this comment over at the Washington Times...
The Times editorial was John Kerry praises French, snubs British on Syria

I've pegged the Kerry speech the 'We Know' speech...we know that Kerry lies and he definetly had a few in this one-side melodramatic plea for accepting Obama's side of this fiasco... Also, the UN's envolvement is a front that would make Saul Alinksy proud. They (the UN) go in with an 'we-don't-agree-with-Obama' attitude knowing they'll come out on the other side as soon as their 'made-up' evidence is verified. No one is talking about the REAL reason Obama wants to bomb Assad...Assad is an Alawite and Obama supports their enemy the Muslim Brotherhood who just happen to be Sunnis. If Obama bombs Assad look for retaliation from both Russia and Iran...don't think they'll sit by on the sidelines...what we're looking at here is the Obama foreign policy that envolves personal animosities toward other Muslims and western ideology. America is not even close to waking up...I don't think they'll wake up when blood starts flowing in American streets...they're all too busy texting, watching American Idol and/or playing with their X-Box games ...and that would include all you six-year olds playing Super Mario Brothers... 

And now they want to blame Israel...  Is this story getting crazy or what?
British MP: Syrian Rebel-Terrorists Used Nerve Gas, Uploaded Video Before Attacks 

A British lawmaker says he believes the Israeli regime was the main culprit behind killing hundreds of civilians in Syria, because it provided terrorist groups affiliated with al-Qaeda with chemical weapons they used against civilians.
“If there’s been any use of nerve gas, it’s the rebels that used it…If there has been use of chemical weapons, it was Al Qaeda who used the chemical weapons”, said Respect Party MP for Bradford West, George Galloway.
“Who gave Al Qaeda the chemical weapons? Here’s my theory: Israel gave them the chemical weapons”, Galloway MP added.
Meanwhile, media reports had it that Qatar’s Al Jazeera TV and Reuters news agency published the news of massacre in East Ghouta, Damascus “one day” before the massacre happened.
According to the reports tens of videos were uploaded before foreign-backed terrorists announced and accused the Syrian government of conducting chemical attacks on its own people. Those evidences show the terrorists massacred people, including women and children, then recorded and uploaded the scenes to deceive the world’s public opinion, but they did so hurriedly and gave themselves up.
The question here is why the Syrian government and its army should have committed such a heinous mass murder using chemical weapons when the United Nations inspectors are visiting the country to investigate the use of such weapons?
The foreign-backed terrorists and mercenaries hired by certain regional Arab countries are making up those allegations against the popular government of President Bashar al Assad to invoke a foreign armed intervention in Syria the same as what they did in Libya.
Qatar’s Al Jazeera TV published the news of the alleged chemical weapons attack by the Syrian army, citing unknown activists as its source.
A website funded by foreign-backed terrorists also uploaded videos of the alleged attacks and wrote that “Baath Regime used chemical weapons in East Ghouta, Damascus, Jobar, Ain Tarma, Zamalka, Western Ghouta, Muaddamiyah around 03: 30 am.”
At the same time, one of the well-known pro- terrorists’ Youtube account ‘SHAMSNN’ swiftly uploaded tens of videos between 03: 00 and 04: 00 am, 20 August. The same people behind all these scenarios accused the government of Syria and its army of carrying out chemical attacks on 21 August.
Now, even if the chemical attacks had happened at 03:30 on 20 August, it’s not possible to film the scenes and upload tens of videos of these heinous crimes with the best quality pictures.
Therefore, all the evidence shows is that foreign-backed terrorists perpetrated the crimes, filmed and uploaded the scenes and went to their mouthpieces such as al Jazeera, al-Arabiya, Sky News and Reuters to accuse the Syrian government of a massacre the terrorists did.
Another best evidence of such brutality by the terrorists, who are regularly coming close to their end of life, is that they had gathered innocent civilians including women and children into certain places, killed them by nerve gas and filmed the brutal murder scenes, then they did what they were ordered to accuse the Syrian government.
Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi highlighted certain countries’ hostile stance towards his country telling the world that a media and political campaign of lies is being circulated by certain Arab and foreign media outlets including al-Jazeera, al-Arabiya, Sky News and others which are involved in the shedding of Syrian blood and supporting terrorism, with the objective of distracting the UN committee of inspectors of its mission to investigate which party to the conflict has used chemical weapons.
“The cries of terrorists and their calls for aid accompany the fact that the Armed Forces are advancing on the ground, and also accompany the fabricated campaign waged by some channels in desperate bid to imbue false morale in the armed terrorist groups,” he said.
Omran al-Zoubi described the support by some Arabs and the so-called Arab League for these allegations as ridiculous, naïve and illogical.

Then there is more proof that Obama, Biden, and Kerry lied...

Syria and Obama's End Game

Update August 31 2013:
This Just In...from MEMRI (Emphasis mine Storm'n Norm'n)

Iran: If Syria Is Attacked, It Will Strike U.S., Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey, Israel, As Well As E.U. Interests; Israel Will Be Destroyed

In response to the possibility of a U.S. military strike against Syria following reports that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad used chemical weapons against his own citizens, Iran has voiced a series of threats against Arab countries in the region and also against Israel and the West, in an attempt to prevent attacks on its ally Syria and to ensure that Assad remains in power.[1]
While Assad's promise to retaliate for such an attack was not particularly emphatic, and Hizbullah barely responded at all,[2] most of the Iranian officials' statements on the matter threatened a Syrian response that would set the region ablaze. Only a few Iranian threats specifically referred to retaliation by Iran itself – and even those were issued prior to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei's August 28 statements (see below).[3]
It appears that, as on previous occasions, Iran's promises of regional conflagration are empty threats aimed solely at intimidation, and it is not clear that they will actually be carried out.
The following are excerpts from some of the Iranian threats.

Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei: An Attack On Syria Will Be A Disaster For The Region

On August 28, 2013, Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said that a U.S. attack on Syria would be a "disaster for the region," adding that with such an attack, the U.S. would not only set the entire region on fire but would itself be harmed: "Intervention and warmongering [in Syria] will no doubt harm those who fan the flames. If this intervention happens, the Americans will no doubt be harmed, as they were harmed in Iraq and Afghanistan. An intervention in [Syria] by powers from outside the region will only ignite the flames [of war] and increase the nations' hatred towards [these powers]. Such warmongering is like a spark in a gunpowder depot, and its dimensions and consequences cannot be estimated."[4]

IRGC Commander Jafari: Syria Will Be A Second Vietnam For The U.S.; Israel Will Be Destroyed

In an August 28, 2013 interview with the Tasnim website, Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Commander Mohammad Ali Jafari threatened: "The Americans have had much bitter experience in Afghanistan and Iraq. If they carry out a military attack on Syria, the chain of their defeat will be complete, and they will experience their most shameful historic defeat of all; in addition, Syria will become a slaughterhouse and a war arena much more dangerous than Vietnam [ever was]. In fact, Syria will become a second Vietnam for the U.S.
"The Zionists must know that a U.S. military attack on Syria will not rescue [their] regime from the talons of the resistance, but will bring about the imminent destruction of Israel... Certain governments in the region and reactionary Arab regimes that support the military attack on Syria must know as well that the flames [sparked by] this warmongering will not be confined to Syria, but will spread to all those who ignited and supported the war [that will result from the attack]."[5]

Iranian Army Deputy Chief Of Staff Masoud Jazayeri: Crossing Syria's Red Line Will Have Dire Consequences For The White House

Iranian Army deputy chief of staff Masoud Jazayeri said: "Anyone collaborating with the U.S. and the Zionist regime in the terrorist war against Syria will encounter problems, and those who fan these flames will not be spared the revenge of the nations... The U.S. knows where the red lines are on the Syrian front, and any crossing of this red line will have dire consequences for the White House."[6]
On another occasion, Jazayeri said: "In the event of a military operation on the part of an anti-Syrian front, the Syrian people will resist, and the outcome of their resistance will be victory... and, with God's help, the flames of this war will [end up] setting the Zionists on fire."[7]

Qods Brigades Commander Qassem Suleimani To U.S. Troops: When You Go To Syria, Don't Forget To Take Coffins

On August 29, 2013, a message for the U.S. forces from Qods Brigades commander Qassem Suleimani was made public; it stated: "Every paratrooper who is supposed to jump from an airplane, every rifleman who is supposed to disembark from a warship, and every commando fighter who is supposed to climb into an armored personnel carrier must remember to first take his own coffin. Syria is the red line of the Islamic Revolution; it is the place [from which] we ascend to heaven, and your graveyard."[8]

Chief-Of-Staff Hassan Firouzabadi: An Operation Against Syria Will Burn The Zionists

Iranian Army chief of staff Hassan Firouzabadi said on August 28, 2013: "Any military operation against Syria will burn the Zionists... The U.S., U.K., and the rest of their allies will be harmed in a show of military power in the region and in Syria... The outcome of the resistance of the Syrian nation in any further war will be victory..."[9]

Majlis Speaker Larijani: The War In Syria Will Spread To The Other Countries In The Region

Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani said: "The outcome of the uncalculated and unwise move will be a conflagration that will grab the innocent countries of the region by the throat... You can begin the operation against Syria, but you will not be the ones to finish it. You must fear for your illegitimate Zionist offspring in the region."[10]

Kayhan Editorial: "Syria Will Have The Upper Hand In A Potential War... As One Of The Dominant Members Of The Resistance Axis, Syria Must Not Miss This Historic Opportunity"

In its August 29, 2013 editorial, the daily Kayhan, which is close to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, listed the targets of a possible Syrian counterstrike – oil installations and strategic interests of countries like Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar, Turkey, and Israel, as well as American and European facilities and interests – that will be struck by Syria's massive missile arsenal, which includes Russian Yakhont missiles.
The editorial stated: "A potential war will involve the U.S. and several European and regional countries, who will therefore... be perceived as belligerent countries, or as countries that are intervening in the war. Therefore, in accordance with Article 51 of Chapter VII of the U.N. Charter, there will be a Syrian military attack on the military, economic, and other centers and facilities of these countries that make their military capabilities available for the attack on Syria and play a role [in this attack]...
"Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Jordan, and Qatar have officially announced their participation in the military coalition against Syria. Therefore, their strategic and military centers can be included in the list of targets of a Syrian military strike, if the attack is carried out.
"Obviously, the regime that is occupying Jerusalem, which is the American military base in the region, will have a special place on this array [of targets]. The Syrian government has already announced that it is aiming its long-range and mid-range missiles [at Israel], and that they will cause great damage when they explode. The Dimona nuclear plant, and Tel Aviv, as well as several airports and other strategic centers of the regime that is occupying Jerusalem, are among the predetermined targets of Syrian missile strikes.
"According to Article 51 [of Chapter VII] of the U.N. Charter, military headquarters and installations, army camps, airports, and other strategic [facilities] of certain countries that are regional partners of the U.S. in a potential war can and should be attacked. As part of this, an attack on Saudi oil installations, ports, and oil tankers in the Persian Gulf will be of ever-increasing importance and have a paralyzing effect... Considering Syria's military capabilities, and especially its missile capabilities, and the proximity of the targets, which are within Syria's range, [the attack] is highly feasible.
"Syria can also target U.S. and British warships in the Mediterranean with its long-range supersonic Yakhont missiles. Hizbullah in Lebanon has similar missiles, with which it destroyed the Israeli Sa'ar warship in the Mediterranean in the 2006 Lebanon war. These and other ballistic missiles, of which Syria has a large [arsenal], can also be launched at strategic [targets] in countries that act on behalf of the U.S. in the region and that have joined the coalition [formed for the purpose of] an attack on Syria. Syria needs no permission to use the airspace of the country that lies between it and Saudi Arabia [i.e. Jordan] in order to attack Saudi army centers and oil installations – because Jordan is itself part of the possible military coalition against Syria, and its strategic centers may be attacked by Syria as well...
"If war breaks out, the U.S. will insist on using the tactic of firing long-range [missiles]. Hence, Syria will be obliged to attack the American warships and other American and British interests in the region, as well as the military, economic, and strategic facilities and centers of the regional countries that are participating in the coalition. This could mean that Syria will have the upper hand in a potential war... As one of the dominant members of the resistance axis, Syria must not miss this historic opportunity."[11]

Kayhan: "Thousands Of Missiles Will Land Every Day In The Occupied Lands And On [Israel's] Strategic Facilities"

On August 28, the day before the publication of the editorial, Kayhan promised that Israel and the other U.S. allies in the region, namely Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey, and Qatar, would be targeted in a counterstrike: "It is highly likely that the recent uproar is [nothing but] psychological warfare aimed at wringing concessions from Syria in the upcoming Geneva conference... The U.S. can start the war [against Syria], but its end will not be determined by [the U.S.] or by its allies...
"Israel is the Achilles heel of the U.S. and its European allies. There is no doubt that from the minute an attack on Syria begins, thousands of missiles will land every day in the occupied lands and on [Israel's] strategic facilities...
"The Islamic world is fed up with the warmongering of the U.S., Israel, and certain Arab states, and it is counting the minutes to a direct confrontation with the Zionists... An attack on Syria will give the Muslim nations surrounding Israel a golden opportunity.
"Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey, and other countries have officially announced their participation in a military operation against Syria, so if a war breaks out, they will obviously be targets of a Syrian counterstrike, since they will be hostile states. Because these countries have for the past few years been facing a popular uprising rooted in an Islamic awakening, their possible involvement in the war will no doubt provide their people with fertile ground for ousting their governments, which are working on behalf of [the U.S.]. In Qatar, which is more like a shopping mall [than a state], the situation is doubtless even more volatile... Every sign indicates that zero hour is nigh..."[12]

[1] The Lebanese daily Al-Safir, which is close to the Syrian regime, claims that Iran considers Damascus the "twin" of Tehran, and it sees a war against Syria as a war against Iran. According to a source close to senior Iranian officials, Tehran has informed Russia and China that it intends to stand by Syria "to its very last breath" and will not relinquish it even if they will. Al-Safir claims that the moment it became known that there could be an attack on Syria, Iranian plans prepared in advance for just such a scenario were placed on Khamenei's desk. Iran's intention is to convey the clear message to the U.S. and the West that any such escapade, regardless of its scope, will end in a quagmire for all those participating in the attack, and that after the attack the world will never be the same. Al-Safir (Lebanon), August 28, 2013.
[2] Hizbullah MP Walid Sakariya assessed that if the Western attack was limited in scope and not aimed at toppling the Assad regime, Hizbullah would not be interested in intervening and widening it into a regional conflict. However, he said, if the U.S. did seek to bring down Assad and to besiege the resistance and deliver a serious blow to Iran and Syria, the Israeli front would be activated. Al-Mustaqbal (Lebanon), August 29, 2013. The Lebanese daily Al-Nahar, which is close to the March 14 Forces, reported, citing sources close to decision-makers in Hizbullah, that Hizbullah was continuing its policy of keeping its cards hidden and not revealing how it might respond to an attack on Syria. Al-Nahar (Lebanon), August 29, 2013.
[3] On August 24, 2013, Majlis National Security Committee Chairman Ala Al-Din Boroujerdi said: "Syria's regional allies will not sit idly by in the face of a potential attack [on Syria]." Press TV (Iran), August 24, 2013. The next day, August 25, during a visit to the Strait of Hormuz, IRGC Commander Ali Jafari said: "Our moves depend on the positions and measures of the enemy. So far, we have not been attacked by any state, but if the enemy's measures, either direct or indirect, take the form of threats, we shall regard it our undeniable right to defend ourselves... The role of the Zionist regime in the bloody events in the region is becoming clearer by the day, but the final outcome [of these developments] will surely not benefit this [Zionist] regime..."
