Obama should just say no

The broadcast also covered the destructive, disastrous takeover of Libya and the execution of Brother Leader Muammar Gaddafi and why they went all-out to murder him—all under Obama’s watch. Farrakhan also touched on Obama struggling with the next step in his presidency and the kind of legacy he will leave. It is obvious that because of the condition of the world, Obama cannot make too many missteps, and as the president, he has the right to re-evaluate his next step.
On President Bashar al-Assad and Syria, Obama drew a “red line” that if crossed, he threatened to take a course of action; however, such action will only recreate chaos in another Muslim country. In fact, he has the right to step back and not be pressured by lobbyists working for Zionist Israel, nor the war hawks within his own government who say not dropping bombs on Damascus will make his leadership look weak.
Mr. President, my humble advice is to listen to Farrakhan and what he laid out on the topic of you calling to strike Syria. Obama is the president of the United States and commander in chief of its military; he has the right and power to change his mind. This is why Obama should say no to a war against Syria.
