The Lyrics

The Syrian Crisis... WILL Obama honor his word of a unilateral strike against Assad's regime with solid proof of the gassing of men, women, children, and even infants? He said a year ago WMDs in any form would be a redline for an attack by the US armed forces. And yet each day passes with more excuse-making and no resolve. Obama has let down the US, the Western Powers for lack of leadership, and the Rebels fighting to oust Assad from power after nearly 3 years of fighting with over 100,000 dead and millions displaced. A damn disgrace.
He gave advice
When the rumors first started
Gave dire warnings
About “Redlines”
Gassed bodies of children now charted

Assad’s denial and his weapons of choice
And the Rebels reporting
We’ve got the feeling Barack’s got no choice
Despite the Reds distorting

So we wanna know

Why is Barack playing games?
Air strikes are long overdue
Backing down will cause shame
When will the ships launch cruise (missiles)?

Tell us please
‘Cause we have to know
War crimes gassing children
W-M-D blow

[Unlike Iraq we know]

And yet he still talks
It proves he lacks zeal
And he won’t make that call
To our warships armed to kill
We trusted him
Would he let the U.S. down?
Would deny victory,
To the Rebels that stand so proud?

So far…

No small arms shipments even found

[Just stale MREs shipped around]

We wanna know
Oh yes, we wanna know

… is he the Commander-In-Chief?

[With the power to wage war for 90 days w/o Congress]

Or a coward???
