President Obama made his pitch for military action against Syria to the U.S. Congress, leaving many members, most of whom are Republican, skeptical about this plan-of-action once the bombing starts-if it starts.
Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D), one of Obama’s staunchest allies, supports a military strike, and has been making the rounds on various television news networks pushing the President’s call for action in Syria.
According to the Miami Herald, during a CNN appearance with Wolf Blitzer, Wasserman Schultz said the following:
“As a Jew,” she said, “the concept of ‘never again’ has to mean something.” She also noted the “searing images” of children killed in what appears to have been a chemical-weapons strike-Miami Herald
Is Wasserman Schultz equating al-Assad to Hitler? If so, is she right?
Wasserman Schultz has always been quick to bash former President George Bush for going after Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction stockpiles that were never found. President Clinton and the CIA, as well as other international intelligence agencies and their respective governments, all proved that Hussein had these stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and also called for military action.
Hussein actually admitted and boasted about killing thousands of Kurds with chemical weapons living in Northern Iraq.
Assad, who has chemical weapons, and is suspected of housing Iraq’s missing WMD’s, is being accused of using the weapons on his people.Obama and Wasserman Schultz are pushing for military action without having concrete proof Assad actually used them, whereas in Hussein’s case, the undeniable evidence was beyond question.
