Maybe twerking would get people to care about Syria
NEW YORK, NY (WPIX) – We interrupt the continuous Miley Cyrus coverage for an important announcement. Man, she not only sucked all the air out of the room, but out of the world. By the way, how many of you knew what twerking was until the Miley Cyrus coverage, me neither. But ,for a moment lets stop talking about Cyrus and start talking about Syria.
While some of you were lost in your twerk obsession, the United States was gearing up to bomb Syria. This deserves your attention because the ramifications will last well past our attack, and rest assured we will attack.
The United States claims the evidence is indisputable that the government of Bashar Al-Assad used chemical weapons on it own people. So far, over 100,000 have been killed in the Syrian civil war; only 1,300 by chemical weapons.
But, President Obama famously drew an oratory red line saying if Assad used chemical weapons the United States would respond. The credibility of America is at stake now and so a fleet is being moved off Syria for an impending attack.
Assad, Russia and china have all warned against an attack all saying the results would be catastrophic. That is why the United States should not do this alone, we need world support.
I am not alone, the United Nations is also asking for restraint, weapons inspectors will be back next week with their report. The UN is asking that any action wait until the report.
That`s where we are right now, waiting to attack, hoping for support, bracing for retaliation. The world could change dramatically in the next week.
I just thought you should know, now back to Miley Cyrus coverage; maybe if Assad had twerked we could get more people to care.
