Today the news media reported Obama said "We have concluded that the Syrian government in fact carried these out, And if that's so, then there need to be international consequences."
That statement comes off starting as stating clearly the USA government has decided without question that chemical attacks were carried out by the Syrian government. Of course Obama presented no evidence of why this conclusion was reached but since it is from the government it should be believed, but remember when we heard similar statements by what is now the minority party of the government and what the current majority party said then.
The second part of his statement then tears apart the first statement. Having stated conclusively the attacks occurred and who did them, he then says if what he just said is true there must be consequences. Is the first statement so? What evidence supports it? If Obama knows it is true why would he build a fudge factor in the second other than to give him self an out if the first statement turns out not to be true or we become bogged down in Obama's war in Syria.

It may be religious at times, political at times, and at other times just my reactions on something happening out there. It will often be like an op-ed article. If I do what I intend, you will at times want to shout I agree, other times you will want to say Dwight has really lost it now, but most importantly I want to challenge you to think.
