Kerry said the Arabs were going to pay for the war. Let them pay for the chemical weapons disposal. Kerry wouldn't lie right?

Kerry began perfecting the art of lying when he started wearing a wig.

Or ALL the bill. The taxpayers even pay for Kerry's wig. It's ridiculous.

After single-handedly finding and killing Osama bin Laden… and then taking out Kaddafi; all President Obama has to do is threaten the use of force, buy some time by using Putin and the tea-baggers in congress to vote on the use of force and we get Assad to cower and turn over his chemical weapons… and all without a single missile strike.

BRILLIANT!

Thank God ‘We the People’ won in 2008 and 2012…

I say, ship them all to the nexus of terrorist funding worldwide - Saudi Arabia and then detonate them. Two birds with one stone.

That is a gimmie no matter what we do...
Paying the tab for the destruction of weapons is far more digestible than paying the tab for the destruction of people

looking at the rates of the US's other wars, id say they are finally getting something for all that $$ they dish out. No war plus getting rid of chemical weapons. Far cheaper than if we had our military do some bombing then going in to get them.

Was that the fuzzy pink line demand or the one where the US will pay for cleanup?

One billion? No problem. America spends that much to fix flat tires on Afghan humvees every week. Tires are milspec, very expensive, like toilet seats.

LMMFAO ! Obummer was deep in a nuclear-proof bunker when that happened...if it even happened btw ! Why dispose of the body at sea on the same day without even letting the press see it or allowing an independent organization to take DNA samples ? I mean, We The People paid literally $ TRILLIONS for that corpse... can we at the very least pee on it, please ?

They have the port and the ships, so maybe they should be the ones to take the chemical weapons, Germany said they will put money and manpower in to destroy the chemical, so would be a good fit.

Nope, the US will pick up the tab, maybe even give Russia a small brokers fee.
