Obama may be impeached if wages Syria war: Analyst

Press TV

An American analyst foresees the impeachment of US President Barack Obama if he goes ahead with a plan to launch military action on Syria despite likely opposition by Congress.

“The big danger is that Congress will say ‘no’ [to an Obama war authorization on Syria] and then Obama will proceed to bomb. If he does, he will be impeached for sure,” said Washington-based author and historian Webster Griffin Tarpley in a Sunday interview with Press TV.   

Tarpley further insisted that if Obama decides to ignore a likely congressional opposition to his administration’s war plan against the Syrian nation, “he will be impeached by those same Republicans who hate him.”

“They are waiting for an opportunity to bring him down,” he added.

During the interview, Tarpley explained that despite a major effort by the powerful pro-Israeli lobby in Washington to mobilize its forces in Congress to pressure lawmakers into approving a draft bill to authorize Obama to wage war on Syria, the usually pro-war Republican legislators will vote against the measure due to their long-standing “hatred of Obama.”

Additionally, he added, a large number of anti-war Democratic Party members in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives will make it very difficult for the war effort to win passage in the lower house of the US Congress.

“Obama’s position in the House of Representatives, which is controlled by these hostile Republicans but it also has a large group of leftist anti-war type democrats, … is actually desperate,” said the American author.

Tarpley further pointed to the declining influence of the main Zionist lobby group in the US, known as American Israel Political Action Committee (AIPAC), and expressed confidence that their lobbying campaign to win congressional approval of Obama’s war plan on Syria will fail.

“I think we’re going to find that their influence has fallen fast and that they’ve chosen a battle that they’re destined to lose,” he said. “They are trading on the basis of victories that are now several decades in the past.”

“No matter what their power might be, they are running into a buzz saw,” Tarpley emphasized. “That buzz saw is the fact that the American people are not just sick of war but disgusted by war.”

“The other thing is if AIPAC brings lobbyists, they will not be alone – believe me – in the halls of Congress. There will be dozens, scores, hundreds of peace activists in the halls of Congress,” according to the American historian.

“The calls into those Congressional offices are running 100-to-1, minimum, against Obama’s war. In some cases, there is no single phone call coming into some of these offices in favor of war.”

  1. I can’t wait! although, its highly unlikely.
    Most likely the vote to war will fail.
    Obummer will do nothing but bring the whole thing home and
    claim that he is the cleverest guy around.
    If this House and Senate of ours were not in on the Obama
    fraud identity and use of stolen SS# and much else, they would impeach him NOW….
    so Here we sit, waiting for the next bell to ring, announcing, the next round of drudgery….
    granted………Biden is no better……I read where he was part of those who wrote the patriot act, some many years before it was pulled out of the drawer and pushed at 3am through….congress, most of who never even read the legislation….
    So here we sit.
    if all of us keep pushing all this talking to one another over the internet as far as possible, we may just make a difference in our own land, at the end of things.
    Thank You Henry……….for this site.
    And to all who take the time to read and write…..here and elsewhere

  2. Personally I’m not in favor of impeachment for the imposter—that is, without the whole 535 members of Congress right along with him, as they have all got to know how often he has committed treasonous acts, and have been silent, allowing it to go on,yes, even Ron Paul sat by.

    1. Amen to that! I second the motion! Just like all items must go, all current politicians and White House staff and officials must go! We’re clearing the house and cleaning it fully from top to bottom! No speck of dirt or dust shall be left untouched!

  3. If O’Bama bombs Syria look for not only impeachment but being charged with international war crimes at the Hague. Then a full investigation into who really dropped the sarin gas from those helicopters that I personally watched on you tube the day it occurred. Identify the helicopters, you identify who dropped the gas. The video’s were removed and censored 2 hours after I viewed them. If those helicopters were Assad’s governments then FOR SURE our CIA and NSA would have let Kerry have them to show the world, but that’s not what they did. They got rid of them, they censored them, and do you know why? Because they were probably from Qatar or Saudi Arabia, with the full backing of Israel. That’s the real truth here. And if right is right then countries like Russia and China should do a truthful investigation and get to the bottom of it all and then guess what? The UN would have the right to attack the United States and Israel because they are the ones who are ultimately responsible for the gas attacks.

  4. I think Obama could line kids up against a wall and beat them senseless with a baseball bat, yet still not be impeached.

    Ridiculous I know, but I don’t think it’s that far from the truth.

    1. I agree. something is yet to come to light, even with all the web info thats indicative of members of both houses of congress knowing full well what the truth is, what ever it is has not come to any of us who go all over the web looking each day and investigative reporters do the same in search of discovering this yet hidden beginning truth of all this.And this search has gone on for years….yet what ever this is…still remains…in the background….the Clintons know….I am no fan of theres…it was reported that their daughter was threatened in the first obama election and then the parents joined the other side….the Us Military has shussed up….just what can this be?
      You don’t just walk in, an unknown Illinois senator, fake your way from there as has been proven and end up sitting in the WH…….the guy is not even a US citizen….this site colony14.net has much…i have not given the time….someone should and get back to this site with a report……..we may all be surprised….

  5. Remember, Clinton was also impeached but he still works with, or does the bidding, for the White House behind the scenes on some level. They remain in the game even though we don’t see their face as much.
