I believe less in coincidences every day. It has come to my attention, through reading an article by Pamela Geller, that the full Senate may be voting on Syria on September 11th. I am shaking right now. I have not been this angry in a long time.
The Daily Beast reports:
Senate Democratic leadership tossed aside the rules for moving legislation with regard to the resolution authorizing the use of military force against Syria, angering some Republicans and creating confusion on Capitol Hill in the run-up to the war vote.
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee narrowly approved a modified war resolution Wednesday afternoon by vote of 10–7 with one member, Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), voting present. The committee’s action allows Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) to bring the measure to the floor as early as Monday, following a break for the Jewish holidays. That would allow a vote by the full Senate as soon as Wednesday, giving the Senate a chance to pass a war resolution before the House has a chance to craft and pass a resolution of its own.
Emphasis added. Wednesday is the 12th anniversary of 9/11. There is no guarantee that they will vote on that date and truly the senate is expected to approve a war resolution no matter what date they pick, but can you even imagine the irony?
If the senate picks September 11th, 2013 to officially join Al Qaeda as allies I can imagine of nothing lower that they could do. Let’s not forget that it is not only the day of the 2001 attacks, but it also the day that Americans died in Benghazi, Libya at the hands of Al Qaeda linked terrorists.
September 11th is sacred to Patriotic Americans. It is a day we will never forget. To the senate it might just be another day at the office.
So what if we join the people responsible for thousands of American deaths on the anniversary of when they waged full scale war on us? What’s the big deal? That my friends is the attitude of many of our lawmakers at present.
This is politics and it is one of the many reasons I have contempt and disgust for most politicians. When I say most, I am not talking about 51%. Oh no, it’s more like 98%. These people are totally out of touch with morality and totally out of touch with the heartbeat of America.
I don’t give a crap if it’s a republican or democrat. Many republicans are supporting war in Syria and it’s not just McCain and Graham. This resolution will pass the senate with a an unacceptable number of republican votes. And surprisingly there are some democrats that are breaking ranks on this issue, but there are not enough it would seem.
I haven’t been this close to speechless in a long time. Normally I can let my anger flow in my writing but, as I write this I am somewhat in a state of shock.
A lot of people are up in arms over this Million Muslim March planned for 9/11. To me this is much worse. To me this is far beyond treason. If there were levels of treason this would be in the first degree. It’s mind blowing that they could even consider war in Syria, and if they vote for it on 9/11 they are flipping the bird at all of us.
It remains to be seen if that vote will actually go down on September 11th. If it does we are counting on Rand Paul or Ted Cruz to “blow a gasket” for us because someone has to speak for America.
Either way, the possibility is there and my bet is that Harry Reid will do everything in his power to make sure that the vote happens as quickly as possible.
Our hopes rest on the house because it seems a foregone conclusion that this will pass the senate. If it passes the senate on the anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in the history of America then I would definitely say that it’s OK to start thinking about overthrowing your government, because it may have to come to that.
The window for a peaceful solution is about to be nailed shut. I don’t know how else to say it. We can not accept this. Between 9/11 and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan about 10,000 Americans died. They died at the hands of the terrorists we are now being asked to support. This is treason by any legal definition. We are being asked to support the enemy.
America needs some Alpha Dogs who will rise up and return this nation to the path of greatness.
Feel free to leave a comment and tell me what you think. I am against this war in Syria for many reasons but if they hold that vote on 9/11 they might as well declare war on the citizens of this country at the same time. That is what they are doing, albeit unofficially.
If you support my enemy, you are my enemy.
