Kerry: Arab countries offered to pay for invasion

Secretary of State John Kerry said at Wednesday’s hearing that Arab counties have offered to pay for the entirety of unseating President Bashar al-Assad if the United States took the lead militarily.

“With respect to Arab countries offering to bear costs and to assess, the answer is profoundly yes,” Kerry said. “They have. That offer is on the table.”

Asked by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) about how much those countries would contribute, Kerry said they have offered to pay for all of a full invasion.

Oh Goodie, that offer by the Arabs should be a warning in itself not to go to war with Syria, this is all crazy.  This whole thing is a smoke screen for Obama to continue to destroy this Country from within.

Invasion means "boots on the ground" if they are so willing to pay for the Invasion, including Boots on the Ground, are they also willing to have their own military complete the invasion so the U.S. does not have to risk our own solders to fight and die for a Foreign Nation.

After all, it is the Nations in the Mid-East that will actually be affected by another War in that region. not the U.S, ,so why should we risk our Troops lives for them. Let them risk their own military troops lives, not ours.  This is not our war, and not our business.

Mike, your right on the mark and if people believe that once the Congress does OK this war than that means he can put boots on the ground and it would take 2/3 of the Congress and Senate to stop him which would never happen.  We have to stop this War!!!

SO NOW AMERICA WILL BE AN EMPLOYEE OF THE ARAB WORLD , THEIR TEMPS SO TO SPEAK , THEY SAY JUMP AND WE ASK HOW HIGH ....INTERESTING .....

I can hear OB now..."My military is your military....how can we be of assistance?".

well...king o did bow to the Saudi King.....and all the rest of them have sold out America for their evil one world government.....we must stop this!

No more spilled American soldiers blood for the Muslims!!!  We know where Assad lives so just send a cruise missile up his a** and be done with it.

What a stupid unthinking statement from a Sec of State . . America is now reduced to w war whore / / / the man is suffering from lack of oxygen getting to his brain , , 

Kick them out do this . . http://articlevprojecttorestoreliberty.com/article-v---group-overvi...

BOOTS ARE ON THE GROUND - SPECIAL FORCES - CIA - NSA - they are just not in uniform . . 

Mangus your right, they just don't have on uniforms.  They have been in Syria for a lot longer than people no because this was in Obama planning stages for along time now. 

Don,

I am sure that boots [spies] have been on the -ground in Syria since Reagan . . no one want to admit how involved we are in nations internal politics . . Why do we keep following the E=GREEN oil policy of no US drilling or production, no nuclear power plants, no fracking on Government land or offshore?

Why do the Progressives want the US to be energy dependent on the Arabs? What is our advantage? The E=GREEN want to export all manufacturing jobs and to export all pollution to other nations - do they not understand that air is a global event dust goes clear around the earth in hours . . 

America is rich with natural resources but we are blocked from harvesting and using them in value added manufacturing. Just think the profits and the taxes that are being blocked by the E=GREENS and the Progressives??? Why

Revelations..tells us why...I ask every American that is for this evil admin...just who do you think will be in charge of a one world government..it won't be bozo.....or us...."HUNGER Games" anyone????

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
