Madonna Finally Weighs in on the Syria Crisis

Madonna Finally Weighs in on the Syria Crisis

The pop phenom makes her thoughts known with a Facebook photo

Finally, we have some clarity in the debate over whether the United States should intervene in the Syria crisis.

Pop singer and apparent foreign-affairs expert Madonna has put her two cents in regarding America's potential military action in Syria, where a chemical weapons attack in August reportedly killed more than 1,400 people, according to U.S. intelligence agencies.

As it turns out, she's against it.

madonna mainThe “Papa Don't Preach” singer took to Facebook on Thursday to register her displeasure over the possibility of intervention, posting a photo of a hand-scrawled message that read, “U.S. stay out of Syria! For humanity's sake.”

President Obama has been attempting to drum up allies for a potential strike on Syria, meeting with leaders at a summit. During a press conference on Friday, Obama acknowledged that he had his work cut out for him.

“I knew this was going to be a heavy lift,” Obama said, according to the New York Times. “I was under no illusions when I embarked on this path. But I think it's the right thing to do. I think it's good for our democracy. We will be more effective if we are unified going forward.”

The president is expected to address the nation on the topic from the White House on Tuesday. But really, one has to wonder if, without the backing of Madonna, he should even bother.

    That's it then. Madonna cinched it. The war is on.

      You're right, no politician can be seen to do what Madonna wants and survive.

  • Empty Nest

    Thank God she's finally spoken! Maybe our president and Secretary of State can get some sleep now. I didn't know what to think about all of this until Hollywood weighed in.

    Is that sarin damage in her chin?

    So you closet zionist fascists have the right to rant-and-rave but
    Madonna cannot enjoy her God-given freedom of speech? Now, go figure!
    When would she deserve more attention? If she spinelessly joins the
    bandwagon promoting zionist dictatorship of the Middle East? Madonna is a
    U.S. Citizen-Voter and has the God-given freedom to enjoy her
    inalienable Bill of Rights! This is the United States of America, not
    the West Bank and Gaza where zionist goonsquads relish a bloody rampage
    with uzzis and white phosporous against innocent Palestinian civilians!
    God bless you with the sane wisdom to know the diffference! And God
    bless the USA, the land of the free and the home of the brave with liberty and justice for all!

      You are exposeing yourself as the true facist. Cary on writing, it's quite self destructive actually.

      • Leo Emmanuel Lochard

        Please stick to issues not ad hominem accusations! Back your assertions with verified proof! Human liberty is a gift from God; Zionists don't own it to then grant it to Palestinians. How arrogant! “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,….” So you see, our inalienable constitutional Bill of Rights comes from our Creator, Almighty God; not from mortal men; hence, why they are inalienable and indestructible. Destroying other nations’ advances in infrastructure, technology, science, and education in the name of “fighting anti-terrorism” because those nations are weaker militarily, is not our American purpose for being the leader of the free world. We destroy their cultural advances in economic development and then accuse them of being “uncivilized-and-backward!” There are less destructive ways of bringing about constructive political change on the side of democratic liberty. God bless you with openness and receptivity to Christ Jesus, “the way, the truth and the life.” We can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth.” We can only “do the truth in love.” God bless the United States of America.

    Everything has to be an “F” word from her.

    I love wiseass hacks who use #Madonna's name to grab attention. (After 30 years, you'd think I'd be use to it, but it's still irritating. Maybe it's because these newbies don't get how tired & cliched it is.) So everyone else in the world is allowed to speak (the media certainly is pretty focused on public opinion regarding Syria, are they not?), but it somehow becomes an amusing target if Madonna voices an opinion? Does fame make her less of a citizen/human? Is it the money? Is it her vagina? What is it? …Hey wannabe-writer, how about you write something original, like how bad Miley's MTV performance was?! Frankly, this puff BS, which panders to folks of a lesser IQ, just tells me that you simply don't grasp the seriousness of the issue. How about you not further disrespect the people effected & just stick to writing fantasy fiction on some obscure forum, k?

    I think you Madonna groupies are missing the point. The silliness of this story is the fact that a knuckleheaded writer saw fit to write the article. Yes, Madonna has the right to her opinion whether she has any real credentials to make it credible is another issue. Does anyone really care what Madonna has to saw about such a world event? I would venture to say probably not.
