It should be an interesting G20 for the Nobel Peace Laureate, O'bama, slapped down by his own people.
Obama would have been useless on any world stage. Nobody respects him in this world. That was made clear enough when he met Putin and failed to meet Mandela. The best thing is to send Biden to all future international events. I am tired of seeing this nation humulliated on the world stage.

An American official said that the initial target lists included fewer than 50 sites, including air bases where Syria’s Russian-made attack helicopters are. The list includes command and control centers as well as a variety of conventional military targets. Perhaps two to three missiles would be aimed at each site.
Got that? So, if you’re a Syrian air-base commander, you might want to think about moving those Russian helicopters, or at least yourself — perhaps to that black-eyed cutie’s apartment, above the restaurant where the kibbeh with the pomegranate sauce is to die for, just for the night, until the Great Satan has twerked his ordnance at you twice or thrice and gone away to threaten the Yemenis or Somalis or whoever’s next.
O'bomber plans to lose this war in record time.
I hope the Syrians are cool headed enough to ignore that maniac. But I doubt it. Arabs can be hot headed. They are just as likely to gas Tel Aviv when the first bomb lands. That would give an excuse and create a loud uproar for the USA to defend israel. This thing could escalate beyond anybody'd control within five minutes after the first attack. That is why we cannot follow Obama on this without cone clear cut assurance that his gang knows what they are talking about and they have some waterproof evidence to support their claims. That crap Kerry was spewing yesterday won't get it. He clearly did not convince anyone because it was so clear that he was not convinced himself.

Can you provide a few credible links to prove this?

just like everything else....

Republicans already split on how to address Syria vote

While President Barack Obama said on Saturday he would ask Congress to sign off on a strike against the Syrian government, Republican lawmakers had mixed reactions to the plan, with House Homeland Security Committee chair Rep. Peter King (R-NY) accusing Obama of sidestepping his duties as commander-in-chief.

“He should not be passing it on to Congress,” King told WCBS-TV on Saturday.“I should not be waiting until Congress comes back on September 9th.”

But Talking Points Memo reported that House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and other Republican leaders argued just the opposite in a joint statement announcing the House would take the matter up for a vote after coming back from recess.

“Under the Constitution, the responsibility to declare war lies with Congress,” the statement read.“We are glad the president is seeking authorization for any military action in Syria in response to serious, substantive questions being raised.”

Obama is a day late and a dollar short.

Ex-Bush Officials Love Obama’s Unilateralism on Syria

The president is signaling he’s willing to go it alone, and that’s won him some new admirers: the Bush officials who went to war with Iraq absent a second U.N. resolution.

Many former officials from the George W. Bush administration have discovered new respect for Obama’s recent embrace of American unilateralism after the suspected chemical-weapons attack last week in a suburb of Damascus.

“I absolutely congratulate President Obama for finally realizing that our U.N. allies are nothing more than a bunch of dithering, yellow-bellied, Chardonnay-sipping cowards,” said Mark Corallo, the former spokesman for the Justice Department in Bush’s first term.“I further congratulate him for finally growing up and understanding that there are bad people in the world and sometimes they earn, by their evil, the action of a great superpower. So yippee-kai-ay, cowboy.”

A big group of foreign policy experts, from across the ideological spectrum, is calling on President Obama to impose "meaningful consequences on the Assad regime" for their use of chemical weapons.

"At a minimum, the United States, along with willing allies and partners, should use standoff weapons and airpower to target the Syrian dictatorship’s military units that were involved in the recent large-scale use of chemical weapons. It should also provide vetted moderate elements of Syria’s armed opposition with the military support required to identify and strike regime units armed with chemical weapons," the experts write.

"Moreover, the United States and other willing nations should consider direct military strikes against the pillars of the Assad regime. The objectives should be not only to ensure that Assad’s chemical weapons no longer threaten America, our allies in the region or the Syrian people, but also to deter or destroy the Assad regime’s airpower and other conventional military means of committing atrocities against civilian non-combatants. At the same time, the United States should accelerate efforts to vet, train, and arm moderate elements of Syria’s armed opposition, with the goal of empowering them to prevail against both the Assad regime and the growing presence of Al Qaeda-affiliated and other extremist rebel factions in the country."

The signatories on the letter addressed to President Obama inlcude Senator Joe Lieberman, Bernard-Henri Levy, Karl Rove, Bill Kristol, Elliott Abrams, Leon Wieseltier, and many others. Right now, 66 experts have signed the letter.

so you wingnuts go ahead and take shots at those who helped start the Iraq war so we can all finally know how you really feel about Bush's war.

but at least you won't be able to use the excuse anymore that we needed to attack Iraq 'anyway' because he was killing his own people.
