You forget that Obama is a stooge for the Muslim Brotherhood. If the Muslim Brotherhood orders Obama to start a war with Syria, that's what Obama will do.
Putin just saved us from ourselves. He didn't have to do that. Why do you think Putin saved us?
Hillary might fall on her head again and might make Biden the Candidate. Can you imagine Biden with a bottle of scotch in one hand and the launch codes in the other.

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Secretary of State John Kerry said today that he was “shocked and flabbergasted” that the Russians heeded his suggestion about Syria’s chemical weapons, telling reporters,“After four decades in public life, this is the first time someone has taken me seriously.”

“Whether as a senator, a Presidential candidate, or Secretary of State, I’ve devoted countless hours to thunderous and droning speeches that people have consistently tuned out,” he said.“So naturally, to be listened to all of a sudden came as something of a shock.”

But after the novelty of not being ignored wore off, Mr. Kerry said, the Russians’ assertion that he had said something worth paying attention to “seemed like a trick.”

“You mean to tell me that after decades of spewing mind-numbing rhetoric I all of a sudden blurted out an idea worth acting on?” he said.“It doesn’t pass the smell test.”

At the White House, spokesman Jay Carney welcomed the Russians’ engagement in the Syria crisis, but warned that “further actions based on John Kerry’s remarks will not be tolerated.”

“We ask the Russians to be constructive participants in this process,” he said.“And taking John Kerry seriously is a clear violation of international norms.”

Pretty sure that was Putin's plan. Could be wrong.

Don't think so though.

He may have avoided the worst case scenario, but at what price to America and our credibility in the world going forward?

Russia, Iran, China and Syria could very well be seen as the heroes saving the world from further use of chemical weapons and America the "unbelievably small" problem solvers who may have actually made the problem unimaginably worse.

Obama single-handedly got us here all by himself.

But, hey, maybe Putin just wants to secure his pal's, Assad's, chemical weapons just to be seen as Obama's savior with no ulterior motive.
This is so distorted that I have no comment.

Putin does not want a war.
I hope it works.

You reveal yourself a bit :-)
Some day you will support the U S A?
Some day you'll support the USA, maybe.
The USA is the constitutional republic of the United States.
Tell us about the unconstitutional activities of the Obama government. Maybe one day you'll support the USA.
The enemy of the USA is the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda. Tell us why you want a Muslim Brotherhood president and Muslim Brotherhood making policy in the White House, and to get Americans killed to help Al Qaeda's invasion and attempt to take over Syria and get the chemical weapons there. Maybe one day you'll support the USA.

The Constitution is diametrically opposed to Marxist communism. Maybe one day you'll support the constitutional republic of the USA.

Toby Keith probably said it better than anyone else:
American girls and American guys, will always stand up and salute.
We'll always recognize, when we see ol' glory flying,
There's a lot of men dead,
So we can sleep in peace at night when we lay down our heads.
My daddy served in the army where he lost his right eye,
But he flew a flag out in our yard 'til the day that he died.
He wanted my mother, my brother, my sister and me.
To grow up and live happy in the land of the free.

Now this nation that I love is fallin' under attack.
A mighty sucker-punch came flying in from somewhere in the back.
Soon as we could see clearly through our big black eye,
Man, we lit up your world like the fourth of July.

Hey, Uncle Sam put your name at the top of his list,
And the Statue of Liberty started shaking her fist.
And the eagle will fly and it's gonna be hell,
When you hear Mother Freedom start ringing her bell.
And it'll feel like the whole wide world is raining down on you.
Ah, brought to you, courtesy of the red, white and blue.

Oh, justice will be served and the battle will rage:
This big dog will fight when you rattle his cage.
An' you'll be sorry that you messed with the U.S. of A.
'Cos we'll put a boot in your ass, it's the American way.

You are obviously ignorant of the fact that Russia, Germany and France were the same countries being paid by Saddam Hussien from the money he stole from the UN's oil-for-food scam to rebuild his infrastructure for war. And, those were the exact same countries giving the US intelligence about Saddam Hussien's WMD programs that kept the UN santions active so the UN's oil-for-food scam could continue and they could continue to get paid billions to rebuild Saddam Hussien's infrastructure for war.
Bush stopped that bullshit, didn't he?
Mission accomplished.
If you really want to contribute to the discussion, tell us why we didn't have any intelligence capabilities at that time and had to rely on intelligence from other countries.(I've given you that answer already, as well as the search to study it competely. Tell us what you learned, boy.)
lol! Ok, son. Let's play your game. Let's play by the rules you've created....

So where are the wmd's that bushie boy said were there?

And it would appear your OPINION is trumped by the facts... as usual!

"... SPIEGEL: The German government was convinced that "Curveball" would not be used in the now famous presentation that then US Secretary of State Colin Powell gave in 2003 before the United Nations Security Council.

Drumheller: I had assured my German friends that it wouldn't be in the speech. I really thought that I had put it to bed. I had warned the CIA deputy John McLaughlin that this case could be fabricated. The night before the speech, then CIA director George Tenet called me at home. I said: "Hey Boss, be careful with that German report. It's supposed to be taken out. There are a lot of problems with that." He said: "Yeah, yeah. Right. Dont worry about that."

SPIEGEL: But it turned out to be the centerpiece in Powell’s presentation -- and nobody had told him about the doubts.

Drumheller: I turned on the TV in my office, and there it was. So the first thing I thought, having worked in the government all my life, was that we probably gave Powell the wrong speech. We checked our files and found out that they had just ignored it.

SPIEGEL: So the White House just ignored the fact that the whole story might have been untrue?

Drumheller: The policy was set. The war in Iraq was coming and they were looking for intelligence to fit into the policy. Right before the war, I said to a very senior CIA officer: "You guys must have something else," because you always think it's the CIA. "There is some secret thing I don`t know." He said: "No. But when we get to Baghdad, we are going to find warehouses full of stuff. Nobody is going to remember all of this."..."

You're such an easy shill son!

You do realize that less than 5% of oil usage is in products like you are describing.

If oil is that important for the products we use everyday, why do you insist on burning it?

Its a simple question, Flack.

Why should we take this valuable resource & burn it for heat & for transportation?

We can not just quit oil use at this time but we can all work towards reducing its usage. Higher MPG vehicles, alternation home heat, electric cars, CNG cars.

But hey, you f*cking right whiners keep mocking those who are smart enough to know the oil supply is limited & keep on burning the raw material you just said was so important for manufacturing products,.

This is why you people are dumber than sh*t.

uh huh--that's why after the Kerry joking comment-the state department came out three times to say Kerry gaffe'd. OMG OMG--Kerry is telling everyone that he was only going to shoot one bullet in the air but that showed force that scared Asad. It certainly didn't appear that Asad nor Putin were scared by the commie O'bama. Putin didn't want a war EVER--it was the O'ne aka done O'bama that wanted a war.

BTW Snowden has been nominated for a Nobel Peace prize, shouldn't Putin be also?

Plenty of links and sources have been provided by numerous posters.

You have to first have an open mind and then be willing to check them out. Most importantly, you have to be willing to think for yourself in the face of so many unanswered and controversial issues that have been put forth - some of which defy a logical defense and leaves room for intelligent speculation.

We wouldn't have to borrow 1.3 trillion if Bush had not crashed the economy& we didn't have to pay for two quagmire wars.
<spam>

The Democrats' Marxist CRA program collapses the economy, dupe.
The Democrats doubled the debt, idiot.
The Democrats increased the deficit a thousand percent, dumbass.

The 1.3 trillion is just the increase in government spending by Democrats, moron. The Democrats took over the purse strings with a declining 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit during a war.

See...this is my dilemma with your solution. If you agree Assad has killed thousands of his own people and perhaps even hundreds using chemical weapons (although no one seems to have direct proof of that yet) and agree Putin is a devotee of Stalin and supplies and supports Assad and, therefore, responsible for the killing of thousands of people, why in the world should Putin be entrusted to do the right thing with those chemical weapons?
Which side of the issue are you supporting now?
