When asked about boots on the ground.
Kerry said,“I don’t want to take off the table an option that might or might not be available to the President of the United States to secure our country.”
Have we purchased Syria and they didn't tell us about THAT either?

Maybe that got lost in all the Libya, Benghazi (one little consulate and an annex) shuffle?

The War Powers Act doesn’t allow a president to use force absent authorization from Congress unless there is a “national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces”— a threshold Syria simply does not meet. If Assad’s forces shoot at our ships offshore, Obama can rain hell down upon him, but absent that “national emergency,” he has to go to Congress.
Except if he is Obama the Omnipotent.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon warned that the use of force is only legal when a country is acting in self-defense or with the approval of the U.N. Security Council. Russia and China both have veto power in the U.N. Security Council and would presumably block any American attempt to secure U.N. support for a Syria strike. Obama has said he is comfortable going forward without the Security Council.

Huh, so how does Obammers "punishment" fit into all this? Is there something that goes with a nobel "peace" prize, that grants subversive radical rights to declare war?

Hillary Clinton called Assad a "reformer" in 2011. Her successor now comparing him to Hitler.
Our foreign policy is totally confused and messy.
Why does Obama hate Israel?

He should be encouraging sanctions against Syria, along with the help of other middle east nations.

How do we know which side, if any, released the chemical weapons?
Kerry received his hair and blood samples from the Al Qaeda rebels.
I don't know and I would hope that this would be determined before anything happens; not that I think we should enter into a civil war.
I am absolutely against this.

In defense of Obama, the US should not and cannot surrender its security and sovreignty to the UN or any other agency.

More Kerry quotes
"Will you obey the law?"
Kerry "Well, we intend to win."
"In 2002, Kerry voted to authorize the President "to use force, if necessary, to disarm Saddam Hussein", but warned that the administration should exhaust its diplomatic avenues before launching war. "

et

"UN inspectors did in fact visit Parchin in 2005. But they did not see the place where the IAEA now believes the explosives chamber was built. "

Is that the last time the U.N. checked this stuff out?????? 2005?
SERIOUSLY?

Well I can't speak for Walmart since I do not shop there, but; at Costco, there are two self check outs. This is fine for people who know how to maneuver them, but, the elderly people can't do it. Same at Home Depot. What about the cash paying customers? they still need a cashier.

Listen carefully to the words used by both Obama and Kerry regarding their degree of certainty with respect to whether Assad used chemical weapons.

The American public is NOT believing the lies of mere "chemical weapons" though.
OR just a little "over the bow" thing.

The IAEA wants to visit Parchin as part of its probe into allegations that Iran is trying to militarize its civil nuclear program. But despite two rounds of high-level talks in January and February Iran has not agreed to the agency's access request, insisting its nuclear work is entirely peaceful.

Saddam was so irrelevant that a collation of 30 nations went in against him.
Also, I've been trying to tell Realtime that many nations in the civilized world once considered Saddam an ally and provided him with chemical and biological materials believing they would be used in medical research.

Saddam duped the entire world. Realtime seems to think it was only the U.S. and that we knew he would become an evil tyrannical murderer.

I think that puts the entire 'Obama is a dictator' issue to rest.
Because he is brilliant! He lets them make the decision!

Yeah, that guy is probably exaggerating. If the Walmart has 14 self-checkout stations, they might have two clerks monitoring them.
Remember, Walmart is banned from minority neighborhoods by the political left, so most of their customers are honest.
Galt agrees that self-checkout would not work in the hood, your neighborhood. In fact, the register clerks might need bulletproof booths.
Deltona is the most racist hick town in central florida... Only an idiot would move and live there...

Overcrowded and under developed, Deltona is home to crazy mean old people, wanna be "gangsta" teenagers... and most importantly, deranged old lunatics.

With a Walgreens on every corner, you'll never have to do without your pharmaceuticals.

The best part about (Deltona) Helltona is that you never know what will get you killed. Maybe over the way you looked at that guy at the gas pump? Or maybe just because someone felt like it.

It's the culture...
