Former Florida Rep. Allen West (R) took to Facebook once again on Wednesday to criticize President Barack Obama's approach to a possible military strike in Syria.

"As a leader, he did nothing for all these months and now wants to enjoin everyone in his abject failure and abdication of accountability," West wrote on his Facebook page. "I am not buying into Obama's weak attempt of guilt-tripping us."

West asked Obama to recall the outcome of unilateral action in Libya, and said that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D), former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and current Secretary of State John Kerry all "sat with and praised" Syrian President Bashar Assad within the last six years, but now "want to blow him up."

Less than a week ago, West took to Facebook to criticize Obama for his "strategic incompetence."

"A year ago President Obama fired off his mouth," he said, "and now he wants to fire off missiles."
