Yeah, they're right on top of things.

GENEVA (AP) — The International Committee of the Red Cross said Sunday it now considers the conflict in Syria to be a full-blown civil war, meaning international humanitarian law applies throughout the country.
Also known as the rules of war, international humanitarian law grants parties to a conflict the right to use appropriate force to achieve their aims, and the Geneva-based group's assessment is an important reference for those parties to determine how much and what type of force they can use. The assessment also can form the basis for war crimes prosecutions, especially if civilians are attacked or detained enemies are abused or killed.

Obama is waiting for a bigger fish... Iran. He needs a war to boost his polling numbers and one that will be messy so to invoke some bullshit to halt our elections. Put nothing past this master of illusion.

I agree Anon,

I wouldn't put it past The Messiah to conjure up a Mid-East cluster-fuck and another 9/11 all mixed into one to declare Martial law and take over as the Commander-in-Chief for an "indefinite period".

Of cource Weepy Boehner and crew will, as usual, stand around shuffling their feet and let it happen.
