President Obama has brilliantly placed Assad in a weak position just by declaring a red line was crossed and talking about attacking Syria.
Assad has moved his troops out of strategic positions and given the rebels a big advantage. The ignorant tea-baggers have been on here since Obama said he was going to the Congress talking stupidity as Obama has all but already created a big win for the rebels and our allies in the Middle East.

Never bet against Black you silly tea-bagging fools, LOL!

"Chris Matthews of MSNBC:-“I think the Democrats are going to be forced to sacrifice men and women who really, really don’t want to vote for this. They’re going to have to vote for it to save the president’s hide. That’s a bad position to put your party in 2014.”

STOCKHOLM — A defiant President Obama declared his credibility was not on the line when it came to Syria. Instead, he said, it was the credibility of Congress, and the international community, that was on the line.

“First of all, I didn’t set a ‘red line,’ the world set a red line,” Obama said at a joint press conference in Stockholm with Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt.“The world set a red line when governments representing 98 percent of the world’s population said the use of chemical weapons are abhorrent and passed a treaty forbidding their use even when countries are engaged in war. Congress set a red line when it ratified that treaty.”

Obama:“My credibility is not on the line. The international community’s credibility is on the line. And America’s and Congress’s credibility is on the line.”

As usual, this so-called world leader refuses to accept responsibility for anything that could have negative results.

He wants to train the rebels???? That be the muslim brotherhood? A known and current enemy of the United States.

Figures from a person who blames everybody else for drawing a red line to begin with. Everybody except himself for saying it. What a piece ofshyt.

Ya know, training rebels has worked out so well for the US. Looks like we have no memory skills.

The Mujahadeen worked out so well in the 80's didn't it?

The Obama administration is considering a plan to use U.S. military trainers to help increase the capabilities of the Syrian rebels, in a move that would greatly expand the current CIA training being done quietly in Jordan, U.S. officials told The Associated Press on Thursday

How odd:

On one hand, Obama wants to train a group of people to attack their government.

On the other hand, Obama wants to DISARM American citizens.

Makes NO SENSE, other than maybe he is AFRAID some of our citizens may want to do the SAME here!

Syria see's Obama as the WIMP he truely is. All they have to do is wait him out. Obama tried to talk tuff by drawing a red line but as usual he was out-smarted and America is being laughed at once again..
