Smart Power!

Oh good god. I know I just promised myself that I would not write about Syria today but this is, well, simply so typical of the frankly stupid incompetent morons we have in DC to ignore

It all happened in an exchange with Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., during which Hagel said it’s no secret that the Assad regime has significant stockpiles of chemical weapons.

When Wilson asked where they’d come from, Hagel said, “Well, the Russians supply them. Others are supplying them with those chemical weapons. They make some themselves.”

Our Secretary of Defense, testifying to Congress, accuses the Russians of supplying Syria with chemical weapons.

As Ed at HotAir writes:

This is one of the two Cabinet members sent to Congress to reassure Capitol Hill that the Obama administration knows what it’s doing on Syria, the other being John “Bombing Another Country Isn’t Really War-War” Kerry.

How can any, ANY, Member of Congress vote for this Sicilian Expedition is beyond me.

    Thanks for that history, it was interesting. I’ve never gone that far back, read only about
    Carthage vs Rome in Sicily.
    The question is – which no one has ever brought up anywhere on TV or radio.- where is the UN? If the world has drawn a line against chemical weapons, why is the US the enforcer. What about the UN?
    Stalin was given much of Eastern Europe in exchange for joining the UN -with only three votes- instead of 16, which he at first demanded.
    Was it all in vain?
