Two days ago.
First, way back on August 31, President Barack Obama seemed imminently close to a strike on President Bashar al-Assad's regime. After Labor Day, came a detour toward seeking congressional approval. That effort was overwhelmingly met by the public with a "No thanks. We'll pass." Then this week, thanks to a remark by Secretary of State John Kerry that may or may not have been off the cuff, Obama made a sharp turn -- toward diplomacy.
Seems FAUX would have covered that.
Oh' that's right they did.
They were the first ones whining.

Ummmm....
Obama pleaded for war and was told NO! by the UN and also by the people of the USA (according to all polls). It was in all the papers. Can't you read?

He did indeed.

And rightfully so.

So when Kerry was asked "Is there anything Assad could do to avoid being attacked", Obama was willing to back up Kerry's suggestion.

Teabaggers seem awfully depressed, we avoided (for now) war.

Meanwhile chastising him for starting 3,4, and 5 new wars, according to all the teabagger talking heads "opinion" media.

But they are happy with their new couch.(LEATHER)

Poor teabagger.

Not a good idea. The rebels may used the weapons against us later. Conflicting! http://t.co/XCiKDZ8tJQ

Obama couldn't stay out of It even after Putin said he would broker a deal. The president has to give weapons to our enemy even lifting the ban on arming terrorists to do so. If we have laws on treason it is time to dig them up, and dust them off.

Those rats cannot win no matter how many weapons Obama and israel sends them. But Obama has to do it to appease idiots like John Mc-Moron-Cain. Mc-Moron simply wants to prolong the conflict to appease Israel. He has to know that the rats cannot win. The ONLY way they can even last much longer is for the USA to intervene with a "no fly zone" and "mission creep". Everybody knows that. That has been clear since the first day of the conflict.

I guess Mc-Moron has a blind hope that he can miracously get a "no fly zone" later. Idiots like him are completely irrational. They do not understand that the American people have made their position clear that we do not went that war to last any longer and we want no part of it at all, not even sending weapons or money.

BTW, most folks care about killing children - whether it be in Syria or in Sandy Hook.
I don't give a f*ck about the Syrian children nor their adults! What I care about are the AMERICAN children that will die or be left parentless when one of Assad's chemical weapons lands in the hands of AQ and ends up in a subway tunnel HERE IN THE US!!
Let them b*tt f*ckers kill each other, I DON'T CARE!! Syria was one of the two largest producers of foreign fighters in Iraq. I didn't see their citizens crying over die American GI's!! What we need to worry about is those WMD's. Sadly, Obama has put us in a Saddam/Iraq scenario. If it was so d*mn important he should had bombed them first then talk about disarming!! YEARS of stalling and hid and go seek are on the table now! Give it a few years we will be invading there too! Obama NEVER had a plan and NEVER thought this through. Words do have meaning! "REDLINE" IS A WORD THAT HAS MEANING!! ASSAD MUST GO HAS MEANING!! HE IS IN OVER HIS HEAD!!



– President Obama, news conference in Stockholm, Sept. 4, 2013

“We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus. That would change my equation.”

Obama is a silly gambler and a pervert. he shoots from the hip. Now he is trapped because the evidence seems to be proving that the ratbels shot that poison gas rocket, not the government. And their bet was righty on target. They knew Obama was fool enough to take the bait. Thanks GOD the British Parliament made everybody stop and think. I wish we could impeach Obama for stupidity.

Since he was elected. Obama has tried to be all things to all men, it never works!

Looking back at his rhetoric before his first election. A new start? Get rid of lobbyists? Govern in the interests of Americans?

The man is a fraud!
