World War III YouTube Clip Mocks 'Obamabots' on Syria Strike (Video)

A new tongue-in-cheek YouTube video mocks those who support President Barack Obama's plan to launch a limited military strike on Syria, painting them as mindless "Obamabots" who are in favor of World War III.

Created by improvisational comedy group Second City, the YouTube clip has already generated more than 650,000 views since Monday. The video shows a series of "Americans" urging their fellow citizens to donate to a fictional Kickstarter campaign for World War III.

"Our president can't launch into another war without you. And remember: when we voted for him in 2008 and 2012, we promised to support him no matter what," those in the video say. "That's why we here at the 'Americans for Whatever Barack Obama Wants, Did You Know He’s Friends With Jay-Z?' have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund World War III.

"America is dead-ass broke, so our goal is to raise $1.6 trillion on behalf of the U.S. government. That’s where you come in," it continues. "Even a small donation will make all the difference. The $1.6 trillion that we raise will help create a war that truly puts the liberal in neo-liberal. There will be millions of troops, thousands of organic, grass-fed bombs, hybrid Prius tanks, rockets controlled by iPads, and drones that play the Lumineers while they attack."

Obama appealed to the American people Tuesday night, saying he will postpone a Congress vote on a military strike in Syria to give Russia and the U.S. time to iron out a proposal for Syria to turn over its chemical weapons arsenal to the international community.

"It's too early to tell whether this offer will succeed, and any agreement must verify that the [Bashar al-] Assad regime keeps its commitments. But this initiative has the potential to remove the threat of chemical weapons without the use of force," Obama said.
