272. Many National Leaders Do Not Know God At All
Obama's spokesman, Jay Carney, said that the President Obama would still seek congressional authorization for military action. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said the Russia deal could be a real solution to this crisis and added 'we must be clear-eyed and ensure it is not a stalling tactic by Syria and its Russian patrons. Senior Senators John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that they were working on a new plan that would authorize the president to use force only if Syria did not comply with a U.N. resolution to remove chemical weapons by a pre-determined deal.
However, Obama's case for limited air strikes targeting Assad's regime was boosted today when a Human Rights Watch report blamed Syrian government forces for the Aug. 21 poison gas attack that killed hundreds of people.(click)
I conclude that most national leaders do not view President Assad and his war machine as criminals. But Assad and the Syrian war machine violated an international law of human rights. Accordingly, I conclude that President Obama and some U.S. Congressional persons are understanding and are godly. But most other national leaders are ungodly because they do not know God at all.
