Obama is about to become “O Bomber”in Syria. I have to admit that I am against that right now, even though I am a hawk. Actually, I do believe Syria should be bombed. Some serious stuff needs to be done there. But let’s put that aside, and let me say why I am against this right now.
The main reason I oppose this is because President Obama’s heart is just not in it. If Obama could be honest I think he would say that he would like to take back that comment about the “red line” in Syria. They crossed it with their first chemical attack and then they did it again recently when it killed over a thousand people, including over four hundred kids. He feel like he’s in a corner and has to do something militarily.
There are other kinds of wishy washy thinking. A year ago Obama said that Assad had to go. Now they say that the purpose of the bombing will not be regime change. What? If I were in charge I would try to drop the first bomb right on Assad’s head. Of course he will be hiding out, so I would take out his homes or castles, his cars and planes, his offices, his favorite restaurant, and even his mistresses houses. Then, if he survives, say “do you want to end up like Saddam?” Show him a picture of the wild look of Saddam when our soldiers captured him in that hole. So do you want to die or surrender?
A second reason I am not for this bombing is because of the current military strategy. This has nothing to do with Barack. This has been going on since the Vietnam War. Since then the military has taken the approach that the goal is not to win. They find other purposes and I just don’t understand. Now days our military, like what we are seeing in Afghanistan, is to build bridges, schools, and other buildings. They have to be able to teach and administrate all kinds of stuff.
For me, as horrible as it sounds, I believe our military should be the best equipped people in the world to kill. That is their job. If we are forced to go to war let it be to win by killing the enemy or killing them until they surrender. So, since Obama’s heart is not in this and the military is not in it to win it, I say let’s not go right now.
