    He could have used FoggyBottomSpeak and said “If you use gas again there may be grave consequences” which is a non-threat threat. The red line thing does demonstrate a certain bush league approach to international relations.

    How many people will have to die because of DumBO’s red line?

    I was in denial, only the republicans are this stupid I thought.
    I guess politicians are politicians, if you do not have a mental problem you cannot be a politician.
    Frustrating, no matter what we vote we get stupid killing asshats in charge, damn.

    It’s time for the U.S. as a nation, not any administration, to stop drawing lines on foreign policy, when it’s none of our business. BUT, the business of the Military Industrial Complex, whether using OUR equipment, or selling to the likes of Egypt et al, is the “Business of foreign policy” in the U.S., for Republicans, Democrats, LIbertarians, and “Independents” with only a few exceptions. Those who ARE the exceptions, find it very difficult to get campaign funding, or “support”.

    The map is OBE. The British Parliament ordered Cameron NOT to join the US in a joint US/UK strike on Syria, so that British ship is long gone.

    Stratfor did the best analysis/history of Obama’s painting himself into a corner, but one that probably won’t hurt him.

    Plan A was that al-Assad would never use chemical weapons, so Obama could sound tough without getting himself forced to act. And Obama is good at making speeches.

    The first chemical attack killing three came days after the first ‘red line’ speech. The now defunct had experts analyse the YouTube that showed Syrian jets shooting a weapon followed by three corpses that, upon analysis, were killed with a nerve gas. The experts said the weapon had the wrong colour smoke, and was NOT a nerve gas weapon. The UK and French governments both said Obama had sworn an oath, and was obliged to decapitate Syria so they could pick up the pieces.

    At this point, Obama could have gone with the and said it was not clear if the Syrian regime had used the chemical weapons. Instead, he said it would take a massive chemical attack.

    Last week, that massive chemical attack came. Again, Obama could have said it MIGHT have been the Syrian regime or possibly a false flag, and the certainty level was too low to act. Instead, he said that the Syrian regime had committed an atrocity and MUST be punished.

    Obama will not risk a single American life, but will kill Syrians (probably civilians, since they’re in softer targets) to show his red lines cannot be crossed. The Chinese call it ‘killing a rooster to scare the monkeys’, the monkeys in this case being Iran and North Korea.

    The analysts say NOT killing a bunch of innocent Syrians will be an unacceptable temptation to Iran and North Korea, so it MUST be done.

    Sorry, Syrians.

    “Sorry, Syrians.”

    Well put. But, you know, we’re much more humane when we kill, so the Syrians—since they have to die anyway—would prefer that we be the ones to take them out.

    “The British Parliament ordered Cameron NOT to join the US in a joint US/UK strike on Syria,…”

    They didn’t order that of Cameron. It was a non-binding vote that Cameron agreed to abide by.

    Parliament learned a lesson from Bush/Cheney and Blair: they’re just demanding better “proofs”, and I don’t blame them. A friend in Britain spoke during the war of the flag draped coffins he saw coming back, and the resentment the Brits held for “the lie”. BTW, they also did a better job of getting along with the folks down in the south, than we did! Restoring the wetlands in the south, and aiding the Shia down there was one of the few smart post-war moves the west made!

    ^^ Now that “skipthebrains”, is no only pathetic, but evidence of a bitterness flushed from pure ignorance, but fertilized with pure “GOPergoo”.

    Where are all the Bush bashers on this topic? Like Clark Kent and Radish along with their ilk.! You know “Bush lied, babies died” crowd. So the new mantra should be “Kerry contrived, Syrians died” Yeah! Thats the ticket.
