    This to go along with Hillary Clinton's 'warning' on Syrian WMD, clearly spells War.


    Several senators are raising concerns that unrest in Syria could allow that nation's chemical and other weapons to be used against U.S. forces and allies in the region.

    "The growing breakdown of order and security in Syria could place its significant stockpiles of poison gases and operational chemical weapons at risk," Maine Republican Susan Collins, New York Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand, and New Hampshire Democrat Jeanne Shaheen wrote in a February 17 letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. DOTMIL obtained a copy of the letter.

    The senators want the Obama administration to spell out the planning it has done to prepare for and "address" the potential that the Assad regime's stockpiles of chemical weapons might go missing. "In the event of a regime collapse, it is difficult to overstate the danger these weapons could pose to allies and U.S. forces in the region if they fall into the wrong hands," the letter states.

    The senators pointed to the apparent seizure of Libyan shoulder-fired missiles during that nation's internal conflict. Those missing weapons show "that non-state terrorist groups will seek to secure these weapons in the midst of chaos and an apparent lack of security or custody of these weapons," the senators wrote.

    The trio also sounded alarms about the State Department's view that Iran and Russia are supplying weapons to Syrian forces.

    Should be calling Assad 'Worse than Hitler' any day now. 'Perpetual War for perpetual Peace.' What a foreign policy.

    No need to worry. Obama has already written his apology letter to Assad.

    I'm always confused as to why american voters care so much more about words than they do actions.



    Why would an Obama one-liner be more important than Obama blowing up sections of another country?
