In response to Hansoribrother's comment:
The lefties are certainly bending over backwards to somehow recover Obama from the total embarassment he has made of himself.
Putin - former head of the KGB
Obama - former community activist
We have a President that is armed with a knife showing up at a gunfight, talking tough, then backing down. Try to put yourselves in the place of others around the world looking at this monumental clusterfork.
The tough community activist pronounces a "red line" in Syria if they use chemical weapons. Was that before or after the disaster in Benghazi where he lied about the attack being incited by a video? So the war in Syria at first looks bad for Assad, then the tide changes against the Syrian rebels. Of course the Syrian rebels, if they were in Iraq or Afghanistan would be our enemy, but for some stupid reason we are supporting them in Syria??
RIght there that should be enough to give a rational person some concern, bbut somehow the leftwingers see it as a plus, a victory for Obama??
Then Obama threatens Syria with an attack after a gas attack kills 1000 people. Somehow he wants to save the Syrian people - after standing by and watching 90,000 of them get slaughtered?
Then we get no support from anyone and Obama and Kerry go nuts trying to explain it as "unbelievably small" but more then a "pinprick"??
THen Kerry blunders into some "diplomatic solution" where the leftwing crazies somehow see this as Obama, the community activist, and Kerry, former Senator and traitor to his country, pulling a fast one on Putin and Assad.
Syria, still has the chemical weapons. I would bet the rebels do too. Syria is still getting supplied through the air from Iran and Russia. The UN is not going to come up with anything because China will veto it if even Russia doesn't. Syria is still going after the rebels via the air and ground. The tough guy Obama has done nothing that he said he would. After he backs off, Syria will still have the chemical weapons and their ability to be supplied from the air all intact.
Yeah Obama and Kerry sure pulled a fast one.
This is so bad that we are going to face more confrontations to test Obama. Our adversaries know he is a weak sister. Now he has no credibility and no support from even the American people.
The danger now is that Obama will push the issue to prove he is really a tough guy. If you know how World War I started, you know how this type of confrontation can all of the sudden escalate to fullscale war.
You lefties must be into the medicinal marijuana.
It is a shame that we are not with Putin and Russia in combatting islamic extremists. Instead Obama's plan seems to be to create more of them by turning one country after another in the Middle East into a failed state for the extreme elements to control.
BINGO! Well said although it is not intentional by Obama he is just in way over his head in my opinion and he has a history of saying things before he thinks of what they will be taken as!
