We need really, really smart bombs. Bombs just muscular enough not to get mocked.

Barry seems to be having limited success moving the public:

NBC poll: Nearly 80 percent want congressional approval on Syria

http://firstread.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/08/30/20256971-nbc-poll-nearly-80-percent-want-congressional-approval-on-syria#comments

In this new NBC poll, 50 percent of respondents oppose the United States taking military action in response to Syria’s suspected use of chemical weapons, compared with 42 percent who support it.

That's a little bit better support for bombing than the beginning of the week, but not much better.

Not surprisingly, the public in not very impressed with Barry's handling of the situation:

He gets even lower marks on foreign policy: Just 41 percent approve of his handling of the issue – an all-time low.

And only 35 percent approve of his handling of the situation in Syria.

British press is all kerplumpf over losing that "special relationship" kind of feeling but not so much so since its a laugh a minute at the incompetence and naiveté of The One.

Kind on neat to be sitting in Europe long the butt-end of our own derision to see the mirror flipped toward the west. Even under Bush there was a certain respect for his leadership and determination even though he was a cowboy and dangerous in their estimation. Now the veneer has been stripped of the man-child and they are not impressed any longer.

Happy Birthday, Elliott!

Another day, another leak that makes Obama look bad. Yesterday it was the intel folk putting the kibosh on the "slam dunk". Today it is the pentagon voicing reservations:

U.S. military officers have deep doubts about impact, wisdom of a U.S. strike on Syria

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/us-military-officers-have-deep-doubts-about-impact-wisdom-of-a-us-strike-on-syria/2013/08/29/825dd5d4-10ee-11e3-b4cb-fd7ce041d814_story.html

Some questioned the use of military force as a punitive measure and suggested that the White House lacks a coherent strategy. If the administration is ambivalent about the wisdom of defeating or crippling the Syrian leader, possibly setting the stage for Damascus to fall to fundamentalist rebels, they said, the military objective of strikes on Assad’s military targets is at best ambiguous.

I think that pretty much sums it up.

"We need really, really smart bombs."

Hit,

That's rank discrimination. Who is going to determine which bombs are really smart? Are you going to use some sort of testing where only right answers count or will the Lawrence Tribe standard of "special intelligence" be acceptable? What about bombs that just don't test well but have otherwise remarkable attributes?

Isn't it more important that our bombs reflect a rainbow of diversity as they seek the targets best suited to their self concept of their own ability?

Threadkiller

If the bomb is guided by a teleprompter, it will appear smart.

Happy Birthday Elliot,

11 years ago in the US Junior Amateur, Elliot's heroics in match play caught the eye of Golfweek and he was featured in an article by Graham Elliot (of course:).

Since its public information, there is no intent to embarrass Elliot but only to showcase his immense talent scholastically as well as in golf. He was only 17 at the time, so I guess its Happy 28th Birthday, Elliot.

The President is alone. Even Republicans have deserted him. As he prepares to take on one of the worst sponsors of state terrorism in the world, an ally of Iran and a murderer of woman and children with chemical weapons let us note where the GOP was during this violent time;pissing it's pants in a closet with Rance priebus.

It's just not right I tellya.

Well Dublin as our gracious host as pointed out in six months the President will be opposing himself on standing alone against vicious killers, the situation will be worse and you will be - blaming the Republicans. But I'm game. The Prez says all he plans is a meaningless gesture couldn't he just get together with Jess Jackson and frown upon the use of chemical weapons?

"Former and current officers, many with the painful lessons of Iraq and Afghanistan on their minds, said the main reservations concern the potential unintended consequences of launching cruise missiles against Syria."

John Kerry is sad we can't bomb the shit out of them to save them.

I doubt the JC has really learned anything from Iraq. They just see an opportunity to pull the rug from under POTUS. But it does seem more difficult to pull the shell-game on a slumbering population.

I may be stretching here, but I detect the slightest hint, just a whiff mind you, that you could possibly be, again I don't want to go too far out on a limb with the speculation, but I am considering that there is a chance you just might be mocking Obama here.

If so, his bombs have already proven insufficiently muscular even before being launched.

I take that last line to mean MarkO is worried about himself for being so prescient, but it also makes an excellent distillation of the Obama Doctrine.

Hot Air has a good post on how we got here:

The ad-libbed war?

http://hotair.com/archives/2013/08/30/the-ad-libbed-war/

And points out an important factor, this was all about Obama puffing his chest out to get himself re-elected.

Dwyer refers to Obama as a “tortured spirit,” who never wanted to find himself in this position. Even at the time, though, it was clear that Obama did want to put himself in this position — while hoping that Assad wouldn’t call his bluff. Obama was in the middle of a presidential campaign which had begun to position him as the experienced foreign-policy hand, and the administration had spent the last few months bragging about its intervention in Libya. Talking tough with Assad was designed to leverage his supposed success in Libya on the international stage as well as increase his standing at home, before the attack on our consulate in Benghazi exposed the disaster that Western intervention caused.

So just remind all the LIVs you know, that a vote for a democrat is a vote to bomb an Arab country.

Ask General Idris

You mean he really is old? Sorry. I thought he was just premature in his senility.

reliapundit

IF WE WERE REALLY SERIOUS ABOUT ENDING THIS WHOLE DAMN THING THEN THE WEST/NATO WOULD ATTACK IRAN AND NOT SYRIA :WE'D NEUTRALIZE THEIR AIR FORCE, NAVY, THE IRG AND TAKE OUT ALL THEIR NUCLEAR ASSETS.

AND WE'D GET THE KURDS TO DECLARE AN INDEPENDENT KURDISH STATE WITH THEIR IRAQ, IRAN, SYRIAN, AND TURKISH OCCUPIED TERRITORIES.

THEY COULD CONTINUE SHARING OIL REVENUE WITH IRAQ FOR A DECADE OR SO. UNLESS THEY ARE ATTACKED BY ANY PREVIOUS OCCUPIER.

WITH ISRAEL AND KURDISTAN, THE WEST WOULD HAVE TWO STABLE ALLIES IN THE REGION.

WE COULD THEN HELP THE ARMY STABILIZE EGYPT AND HELP KING HUSSEIN STABILIZE JORDAN.

THIS WOULD SEND THE RIGHT MESSAGE.

DOMESTICALLY: WE NEED TO PASS A LAW MAKING IT ILLEGAL FOR MOSQUES AND MADRASSAS AND ISLAMIC SCHOOL, AND OTHER ISLAMIC INSTITUTIONS TO ACCEPT MONEY FROM OVERSEAS AND ANY FOREIGN NATION. PUNISHABLE BY SEIZURE OF ALL ASSETS AND PROSECUTION AS AN ILLEGAL AGENT OF A FOREIGN NATION AND/OR SEDITION/TREASON.

IF WE WERE SERIOUS ABOUT DEFENDING THE FREE WORLD THEN WE'D TAKE THESE STEPS SOONER RATHER THAN LATER.

ONCE IRAN GETS ONE NUKE, IT'S OVER FOR US ALL.

Perhaps Obama can help the economy and solve the Syria crisis simultaneously-- bombard Syria with thousands of iPods loaded with recordings of his best speeches-- just like the one he gave the Queen a few years ago.

Ask General Idris

Yep. Neocons still at it. So if Syria didn't do the trick, aren't things still tenuous in Yemen, another back-door to Iran?

Apparently, Obama now has a clear goal:

Aim of U.S. Attack: Restore a ‘Red Line’ That Became Blurred

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/30/world/middleeast/aim-of-a-us-attack-on-syria-sharpening-a-blurred-red-line.html

WASHINGTON — The goal of the cruise missile strikes the United States is planning to carry out in Syria is to restore the smudged “red line” that President Obama drew a year ago against the use of poison gas.

Note the use of the passive voice. I wonder how that line got so smudged?

"How long would Volodya keep resupplying, and the consequences of if he does"

Narciso,

The Russian mob appears to be playing a deeper game than the silliness of Slap BOzo Day (after day after day). I'd bet on a very strong resupply effort and I wouldn't be surprised to find out they had furnished Syria with armaments sufficient to give the US a real black eye. DoT mentioned a missile hit but the Russians also have mine/torpedoes that can "sleep" on the sea floor until needed. They are not easy to find at all. It would just be bad luck if one of our destroyers came within range but we are talking about a BOzo operation.

The short answer is that Russia has strategic objectives and I don't believe dumping Assad is in their plans.

King Obongo gets called out by Assad's 11 year old kid on facebook. America, thanks to Obongo, is the laughing stock of the world. Obongo does like to team up with the terrorists MB in Egypt and Al Queda in Syria. Obongo is trying to figure out how to give the kids post a thumbs down.

Good to know my concerns were illegitimate. :)

And the press is starting to notice the little issue of international law:

Obama Striking Assad Risks International Law Conflict

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-08-29/obama-striking-assad-risks-international-law-conflict.html

It is also interesting to note, that Obama claimed he didn't need congressional approval for the Libya fandango, because there was a UNSC resolution authorizing it. Now he wants to claim he doesn't need the UN either.

This little bit is an interesting note:

Benjamin Wittes, a senior fellow focusing on national security legal issues at the Brookings Institution in Washington, said that the Obama administration is operating without a Senate-confirmed top legal adviser at the Departments of State or Defense, or permanent leadership in the Justice Department’s national-security division.

That just re-enforces how little respect ObamaCo has for the law in general I guess.

fdcol63

In his conceit and arrogance, Obama believed that his power and prestige was based on himself.

He never considered that those qualities were dependent on his office as President of the United States, the leader of the last remaining superpower and the defender of the Free World.

He sought to "take America down a peg" and make us just another country like the UK, France, Germany, Spain, et al.

He undermined America's credibility with his apology tour and constant assertions that America was the major source of what was wrong with the world.

He undermined America's and the world's faith in America's intelligence gathering capabilities with his constant accusations of "Bush Lied!" due to Bush's reliance on faulty intelligence in Iraq.

He conducted a war in Libya without Congressional authorization, despite his and Biden's accusation that Bush was guilty of impeachable offenses because of the Iraq War, even though it WAS authorized by a Congressional AUMF.

And now he wonders why no one trusts him or the US regarding Syria?

I could enjoy the Schadenfreude if only it didn't also further destroy America's credibility and standing in the world.

Franklin at Vandy was an assistant to fat Ralph and should have been his replacement if not for the situation being botched by Chairman Yow who has subsequently relocated to iNCeST.

John Yoo has the curse of intellectual consistency and honesty. Thus when AQ wantonly violates the requirements of Geneva's Conventions, he correctly concludes that AQ are not lawful combatants entitled to Geneva protections given to SOLDIERS. And when US treaty obligations have specific definitions of torture, which don't include 'well doing that is kinda icky' Yoo refuses to make up a new definition never ratified by the Senate. He is and intellectually gifted and honest man-- I wish we had men like him in government now.

Danube on iPad

It appears that the Peanut Farmer will never die:

"A punitive military response without a U.N. Security Council mandate or broad support from NATO and the Arab League would be illegal under international law and unlikely to alter the course of the war," he wrote in a statement. "It will only harden existing positions and postpone a sorely needed political process to put an end to the catastrophic violence."

lyle

Thanks all for the congrats. Madeleine was Mrs. lyle's piano instructor at our humble alma mater, Boise State, for all of her undergrad and part of her graduate work. They are very close friends. It is not a solo recital for the missus and in fact she will be a relatively small contributor with a four hand Beethoven march. The other pianists are former students of Madeleine's and a few are top flight international soloists/stars.
