SYRIAN PROVOCATION, LET THE BOMBARDMENT BEGIN NOW.
Icheoku says America MUST now put its money where its mouth is in order to continue providing the much needed deterrence to world's dictators and would-be despots alike. The blatant dare of the Assad Bashir's led Syrian government, which defied a clearly marked line in the sand of American President Barack Obama, who had categorically stated that using chemical weapon in the conflict in Syria will be considered by America as crossing the proverbial red line, requires a punitive response. President Bashir Assad, not once but now twice since the red-line was drawn, has called America's bluff by gassing his people and daring America to show that its words is still its bond and also still bankable. Icheoku says any further inaction or delayed response to this flagrant violation by the Commander-in-Chief of the strongest military in the world will be seen as bluster, hence the skies over Damascus and the entire Syrian geography MUST and SHOULD rain down some pulverising and punitive hellfire in response; and to send a clear message that America does not bluff.
Such a 'shock and awe' aerial assault is what the killer-government in Damascus needs to see and feel, in order to be reminded that certain actions are considered a taboo and greatly frowned at, in such civil conflict or war as going on now in Syria. It is called rules of engagement and humans are not animals to be gassed or chemically burnt and scorched. Iraq's Saddam Hussein once gassed his people and it eventually snowballed into an invasion of his country and his forcible overthrow from power; and which culminated into his neck being yanked off his shoulders in the gallows. Icheoku says President Bashir Assad has already killed enough of his people - people he is meant to protect; and by now using chemical weapons on them and spraying them with poisonous killer gas, Icheoku has no other explanation of his action than an open invitation for the world led by America to show that it can still check the excesses of such midget and petty dictators.
An American adage says 'you do not tell a man to go to hell except you are ready, willing and able to send him to hell'; so since Bashir Assad has willingly refused to go to hell, it is about time he is hog-tied and dragged through the gates of hell into hellfire. This is the only meaningful desired and deserved response; which put in another way, is the crux of the matter with the present defiance of Syria's President Bashir Assad of a clearly laid down DO NOT CROSS LINE. Icheoku says only such a solid, devastating response is needed and called for and NOW in response to the Assad's government thumbing of nose at both America and the world. Icheoku agrees with America's Secretary of State John Kerry that what we saw last week in Damascus shocked our conscience; it also defies every code of morality. The action of Damascus despotic government led by President Bashir Assad in using chemical weapons against its own people is clearly a moral obscenity defined and cannot be tolerated or condoned. Now is time to send in the tomahawks and let the boys go do their thing with boots on the ground if that is what it will take to send a defining MESSAGE that gassing or chemically scorching civilians in a civil conflict is despotism too far. Icheoku says if Russia or China or even Iran has a problem with that, then let the third world war begin and with it, a healing of the world economy which shall inhere from massive rebuilding following massive destruction.
