    Obama Proclaims U.S. Will Bomb Syria for Three Days Thus Sayeth the King

    Obama Proclaims U.S. Will Bomb Syria for Three Days Thus Sayeth the King

    Posted by: Kevin Lake Posted date: September 08, 2013 In: News

    The Pentagon is planning on laying the smack down on Syria quite a bit more than originally planned, the Los Angeles Times reported on Sunday. Three days of shock and awe type bombardment is in order for this sovereign Middle Eastern nation that seems to bear no direct threat toward the U.S.
    War planners now aim to unleash a heavy barrage of missile strikes to be followed swiftly by additional attacks on targets that may have been missed or remain standing after the initial launch, the Times cited officials as saying.
    Two US officers told the newspaper that the White House has asked for an expanded target list to include “many more” than the initial list of around 50 targets.
    The move is part of an effort to obtain additional firepower to damage Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s dispersed forces, claims our source.
    Pentagon planners are now considering using Air Force bombers, as well as five US missile destroyers currently patrolling the eastern Mediterranean Sea, to launch cruise missiles and air-to-surface missiles from far out of range of Syrian air defenses, according to the report.
    The USS Nimitz aircraft carrier strike group with one cruiser and three destroyers positioned in the Read Sea can also fire cruise missiles at Syria.
    “There will be several volleys and an assessment after each volley, but all within 72 hours and a clear indication when we are done,” an officer familiar with the planning told the Times.
    The intensified military planning comes as President Barack Obama prepares to personally make his case to the American people and further press reluctant lawmakers on the need for action after Assad allegedly used chemical weapons on his own people last month. The charting of the targets to be destroyed, however, shows that Barack Obama will do what he wants, whether the American people approve of it or not.
    Obama is scheduled to tape interviews on Monday with anchors of the three major broadcast networks, as well as with PBS, CNN and Fox News.
    The interviews, to air that night, will precede Obama’s address to the nation on Tuesday ahead of an expected full Senate vote.
    The president favors a limited attack with only a reduced number of warplanes to drop bombs over Syria, according to the Times.
    Amid doubts that a limited US offensive would sufficiently hamper Assad’s military capabilities, one officer told the newspaper that the planned operation would amount to a “show of force” over several days that would not fundamentally change the situation on the ground.
    The planned US strike “will not strategically impact the current situation in the war, which the Syrians have well in hand, though fighting could go on for another two years,” another US officer said.
    If you are against the war in Syria, please contact the elected representatives in your region and voice your concerns.
