RUSH: If I were Bashar Assad and I were watching all this, I’d start thinking that maybe all of this is for show and that there never will be an attack. I think he would be making an error thinking that, but I could see where he might think it. I mean, he’s the object. He’s the guy we’re aiming at, right? I’m just telling you to illustrate. I think Bashar’s over there looking at this and thinking, “You know, this guy’s huffing and puffing. It’s all for show.”
Everything this guy does is for domestic political consumption. I wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t do diddly squat — and if he does, it will be akin to what Clinton did: Launch a cruise missiles into the 33rd floor of an office tower (if they have one in Syria) on a Saturday night. You know, get in, get it, and get out inside of 25 minutes or so and say, “We’ve had an attack and we’ve taken care of it. We hit the targets and we’re gone.” We accept the accolades and all that.
