Doubling down

Would somebody please explain to me what I'm doing?

Faced with rejection in Congress, Obama widens scope of attack, offers Syrians a map of all targets, number of missiles to be fired and arrival time of jet fighters. 

In the history of the United States, have we ever had so stupid a leader? That’s a rhetorical question.

Despite statements from both US President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry that a US-led strike on Syria would be a “limited and tailored” military attack, ABC News reported on Thursday that the strike planned by Obama’s national security team is “significantly larger” than most have anticipated.

According to ABC News, in addition to a salvo of 200 Tomahawk cruise missiles fired from four Navy destroyers stationed in the eastern Mediterranean, the US is also planning an aerial campaign that is expected to last two days.

This campaign potentially includes an aerial bombardment of missiles and long range bombs from US-based B-2 stealth bombers that carry satellite-guided bombs, B-52 bombers, that can carry air-launched cruise missiles and Qatar-based B-1s that carry long-range, air-to-surface missiles, both ABC News and The New York Times reported.

    Just what is this little strike going to cost? What are the numbers the Pentagon is suggesting? Do Americans even get to know? i bet it’s more than a buck fifty. So the WH is still closed to visitors but millions upon millions can be spent to bomb Syria? What a waste.

    I read that one of your CT senators said no. That’s a good thing.

    At least Clinton was an exceptionally good liar. Obama can’t even lie convincingly.

    Barry must be secretly hoping Congress says no so he has some pretext to back out of the whole fiasco.
