US Risks Middle East War to Save Muslims, but Not Christians

By Albert Maslar · Aug. 29, 2013

News out of Syria seems to indicate that the Syrian government used chemical weapons on its own people. That has Obama outraged as he threatens military action against the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad. Russia has warned the US not to use military force against the Assad regime while Iran threatens all-out war.

America cannot be the world's police, so why is Obama ready to risk escalating war in the Middle East to protect Muslims from Muslims who want to destroy America, but will not acknowledge or help thousands of Christians under attack in the Libya, Egypt, Syria, and North Africa?

The consensus is that America should attack Syria WITH the UN's blessing? Since when is America the UN pawn? Been there, done that. Just check Bush II's Shock and Awe that is still Shock and Aweing the US, which failed despite preliminary bombing of Afghanistan airports, military installations, radar, etc, and now in its 11th year with over 6,000 dead in the military and up to 50,000 seriously injured. There is no end in sight despite about $6 trillion added to the national debt.

But the good-hearted UN is dictating America's military response and to top it off, Obama threatens to give Syria a 'spanking' for maybe gassing its own people. This charge is nebulous as there is word that rebels used false flags and set off chemical devices themselves.

Syrian use of chemical weapons on its own people incites outrage by Obama who announced his military response to the world that he will 'spank' Bashar al-Assad, but not attempt to kill him. Russia warned against any military force against the Assad regime, while Iran, as usual, threatens all-out war if the US strikes … or not.

It is not beyond the pale to believe that Syrian rebels used illegal nerve gas to incite and draw the US into a war designed to destroy America. War on the part of OPEC is designed to drive up the price of oil that now hovers around $110 per barrel. Islam is the enemy of the US that actually funds and fights to defend its own worst enemy.

Where is Ron Paul when he is needed? Ron Paul and Senator John McCain are diametrically opposed as war hawk McCain bullies for an all-out strike against Syria.

Can truth ever come out of the Arab Middle East OPEC World? For that matter, can truth ever come out of Washington, D.C., that has yet to utter the word “LIE” even when it is indisputably so? Satan is the father of lies and has legions of followers worldwide. The path to hell is paved with lies and politicians are the principles prodding the not quite suspecting public down the primrose path.

President Obama not only leads from behind, but telegraphs his war plans to Syria, that he will give Assad a symbolic spanking. An old boss used to say, “Right or wrong, make a decision.” Obama decided to go on another campaign tour though he has been reelected to the presidency, supposedly the Constitutional limit.

UN investigators are attempting to determine if chemical weapons were used or not, and whether rebel forces used chemical weapons in an attempt to lure the US into attacking Assad. Chemical deaths are estimated to be up to two thousand. At any rate, the US cannot police the world's 57 Muslim nations. The presumption must be that Muslims are allowed to lie to advance their perceived just cause, and in this case perhaps the Assad regime and the disparate rebels have ample cause to lie.

Why is Obama, like other presidents before him, ready to directly involve America in war of Muslims against Muslims who hate the US and want to destroy America? The conundrum is that Obama persecutes US Christians as he attempts to force them to act against their core-religious beliefs, while he totally ignores the plight of thousands of Christians under attack in the Egypt, Libya, Syria, and North Africa.

Hundreds of Christians in the Middle East have been beaten, murdered, burned, raped, while their homes, churches, and businesses were burned and destroyed. Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood supporters have attacked and burned at least 63 Christian churches since his removal from office by the Military. White House silence continues to be deafening as Obama is more concerned about his coulda been trouble-maker son Trayvon.

It is typical of Islamic martyrs who will kill themselves to win a point and maybe receive a go at the 72 non-existent virgins. Obama is concerned about Muslims being killed by their own Muslim leader, but shows no concern for the burning and destruction of Christian churches, and the rapes, killing, and torture of Christians. As the Bible states, you can tell a bad tree by its fruit and Obama's fruits are bad to the core. Question is why Obama should be trusted in any decision he makes as his track record means he should avoid even the $2 betting window in a one-horse race.

On the racism front of the day, President Obama is dead wrong when he boldly asserts that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr would be on his side. The same mistake is made when politicians and winning athletes loudly proclaim that God is on their side. NO. God is not on any side but all must be on God's side – big difference.

MLK PRECEDED Obama who was NEVER involved with the MLK Civil Rights movement. The question should be, “Is Obama on the side of MLK?” Me thinks not.

With all due respect, Juan, what is YOUR comment?

Headline Says:
"US Risks Middle East War to Save Muslims, but Not Christians."
What is your point, as Obama persecutes Christians in the US as well, and he is not defending Christians against extreme persecution in Syria and Egypt.
What part of the headline is misleading?

Another insightful article Mr. Maslar! We need to stay out of Syria!

I agree. The U.S. can't police the world. We don't have the money or the personnel any more. Plus, Washington types wouldn't know a 'National Interest' if it bit 'em on the hind quarters. As proof of the latter, Boehner is saying he 'sees the national security interest' but Obama needs to 'make his case'. Yeah, right. We're going to smack 'em on the hind end and make them guys behave.We've done a great job so far. Haven't we?

I must respectfully disagree with your headline premise. Obama is a Sunni Muslim and the only thing worse than a Jew to a Sunni Muslim is a Shiite Muslim. That said, I believe that Obama envisions himself, like Ahmadinejad, an agent to bring about The Caliphate. World chaos is what Muslims want so that their dream of the complete annihilation of Jews can be realized. And as long as we're on the topic of betting, I'm going to Vegas and am ALL IN on Israel. They're 5 - 0 baby!

Critique the man's actions; to do so is essential to a democracy. The president, however, is simply not a Muslin, not that makes any difference in the United States of America. christians, such as Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Rice, haven't done so much to make a better USA or world, have they. Religion in this country should not be an issue. I would be grateful if you can show me that President Obama is a Muslim. Otherwise, I'll just have to live in my own ignorant reality. Thank you.

Albert Maslar in Absecon replied:

With all due respect to the office of the presidency, the present occupier claims to be a Christian since baptized by Pastor Jeremiah Wright, a man who cursed America; not God Bless America; but God damn America, about 25 years ago. So what does that say about Obama’s 20 some year membership in that "church?" So if Obama then became Christian, he could only have been Muslim prior to that as he had a Muslim father and step-father, attended Muslim schools, praised the Islamic call to prayer as the most beautiful sound
Islam is another story as Obama in an address at the 67th session of the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 25, 2012 (AP), “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.” So is Obama Christian or Muslim? Does he always side with Islamist radicals? Does he apologize to Muslims when he visits their countries? Does he celebrate Ramadan in the White House with know Islamic terrorist leaders? Does he demean and insult Christianity? Let the facts speak for themselves, and America should be on guard from the occupier in the Trojan Horse White House. The enemy within are the worst.

Syria is no threat to me and mine. I see no reason to get involved in their civil war. Clown man needs to stop getting so riled up every time someone thumbs their nose at him.

John T. Brown in Chicago, IL said:

Well said, Albert. Our incompetent leader(?) has painted himself into a small corner and now is compelled to deliver on his ill-advised "red line" declarations. If these Islamist idiots want to gas and bomb each other into oblivion in the Syrian civil war, it really isn't our concern. The US gains nothing by getting involved in their problems. Should Barack go it on his own, he should OWN the results, which I predict will be near disastrous. I'll bet dollars to doughnuts that Bibi Netanyahu agrees with me and is praying that Barack, the village idiot, backs down. Trust Bibi to unleash hell if Barack undertakes a strike just serious enough to avoid mocking. This is our fearless leader?????

Git R Dunn is right on the bullseye with Israel's military record. Moshe Dayan and Ariel Sharon were brilliant military leaders. They had integrity, courage, and wisdom from Hashem! Netanyahu is likewise brilliant, and ten steps ahead of brain-damaged O'Zilla. John T. Brown has O'Zilla pegged too! We the People know that O'Zilla has a malevalent spirit toward US(A), and he'll start another war that unleashes more marxist moldy bread! Saul Alinsky deja vu.

Why are we sticking our nose into the business of these worthless Muslim bastards in the first place, we should be helping them kill each other. I'm thinking a couple of MOABs dropped in every major goat humper city would probably do the job.

Why does our so called president do nothing about Christians and American soldiers being slaughtered, but gets his panties in a wad if it's Muslims or black thugs?

Could it be that comrade Obonzo is a Communist, a Muslim, a half black militant and probably the biggest fraud to ever inhabit da peoples crib?

He has. We are out of Iraq and coming out of Afganistan. Bushisms take a while to fix (actually, make that Rumsfeldisms, Cheneyisms, and Riceisms).

Albert Maslar in Absecon replied:

We are not out of Iraq and Afghanistan, some five years and counting after Obama promised to get out. Now Obama says we cannot get out of Afghanistan until 2015 (conveniently AFTER the 2014 mid-term elections) according to "UN Mandate." Since when does the UN dictate when the US will exit a war. But Obama added insult to injury by enabling the Muslim Brotherhood to take over Egypt, and now Egypt, Libya, and Syria, have been added to the boiling cauldron that just keeps expanding and overflowing into more areas of the impossible to solve Middle East. Bush was in error attacking Iraq, but now the rest is owned by Obama. Ron Paul was right and the only candidate for president that would have unilaterally withdrawn all our troops along with monies and war supplies the US keeps sending for use against the US donors,
