Assad is a brutal man and a liar.
However, attacking a country in the middle of a civil war where the opposing side is mostly terrorist groups requires a multinational action to ensure the chemical weapons were secured. It was estimated this would take 75,000 boots on ground.
So really who is more brutal?

This administration knew about the chemical weapons in Syria long before it got to this point.
Why did this president wait until the last minute to rally support?
Putin's main interest in Syria is commerce. The warm water ports.

Of course Putin is interested in weakening the US

But, to poo poo his interest in manipulating and controlling terrorist groups would be single minded.

Obama two years ago should have been building his collation. Why?
Ask him and Hilary. It was a diplomatic failure on their part.

I was reading between the lines and comparing Kerry's "unbelievably small strike" to Assad saying the U.S. should "expect every action" in response to a Syrian strike reminding the U.S. that his government is "not the only player in this region".

Enter Iran, Russia and China. And a possible retaliation by Israel. And the possibility of WWIII.

One point that needs to be made, but rarely if ever mentioned, is that in the supposed rationale for US attack on Syria to avenge/prevent claimed civilian deaths by government gas attacks, the US government itself has used similar weapons openly as recently as the FBI/ATF attack on the Branch Davidian compound near Waco Texas in the spring of 1993.

76 men, women and children died in this senseless military style assault which used highly lethal military CS gas as a primary weapon. CS is not a nerve agent and it doesn’t in normal concentrations cause immediate death. But it is highly flammable, persistent and designed to incapacitate targets by causing massive biological reactions including inability to breathe, massive tearing in the eyes, nose bleeds, etc.

O'Donnell went cray-cray on Weiner. Not fan of either one of them. But, acting like a jerk for ratings places O'Donnell as the loser.

Weiner was blind sided much like Paula Deen was by Matt Lauer.

See if you can listen to the entire interview. Assad did not say that, but, he did offer an explanation of what has been happening in Syria for 2 and 1/2 years that was enlightening. I maintain we should stay out, let him kill the Al Quaeda rebels. I think there is a brhnd the scenes negotiation going on.
I think Iran and Russia are sharpening their arrows just waiting for the first tomahawk to drop in Syria.

They aren't threatening retaliation for sport.

I personally think they're salivating for Obama to initiate that "unbelievably small" and "limited" strike.

And he's playing right into their hands.

When's he talking to Assad?
The big question is if this is going to be "unbelievably small", why go in at all?

That's what I'd like to know.

Someone wondered if Putin intervening to prevent a war would the Peace Prize POTUS would make him a candidate for one too.

Before you scoff, remember they gave one to Yasser Arafat.

Sen. John McCain was not a fan of Secretary of State John Kerry’s remarks Monday in London that intervention in Syria would be “unbelievably small,” calling it unhelpful.

“Kerry says #Syria strike would be “unbelievably small”- that is unbelievably unhelpful,” McCain (R-Ariz.) tweeted Monday.

Assad will still be in power and the chemical weapons will still be in Syria.

It's only going to trigger retaliations by those who have more power than Assad.

Of course, chemical weapons can't be tolerated in a civilized world. But a limited strike isn't going to scare anyone or change anything. And the world seems more than happy to sit back and see what happens.

So what's the point?
