    Because missiles and soldiers are exactly the same thing. Brilliant analysis from a military expert.

    If these Dems could stop making verbal gaffs there’d be no need for a face-saving war. Odd to be missing the Clinton-Bush years, and employment.

    Maybe no raid, President Obama will use Putin’s international inspector idea to get out of a raiding.

    It was all a bluff, folks. Time to move along and leave international politics to the professionals.
    Nothing to see here, sorry if you got upset.

    Yeah but President Obama is not professional nor is Kerry.

    Sounds like that is how you view the military. We who have served are a reflection of the United States for all its good and ills. The United States cannot be a reflection of the military because only about five percent these days ever serve. Could your comment mean you hate your country?

    Figuring it set out to stop Assad using poison gas on the Syrian citizenry, looks to me like the Obama/Kerry foreign policy is DOING okay. Of course it’s never gonna TALK up to the high Fox-Rush-Rand-Standards that Varvel enjoys.

    Great toon!
    Sad that our country is now viewed by others as incompetent.

    I’m not really sold on it being a bluff, but for the sake of argument say it was. You’re going to bluff A WAR? Especially after we just came out two others. How is that professional?

    The professional here was Russia. The one coming away looking good is Russia. I’m actually fine with that. We deserve to look bad and the situation will hopefully be resolved without us loosing any more of our kids.

    “Now”?
    Hate to shine the light in your eyes, but this country’s been viewed as incompetent for DECADES. International politics has basically become the rest of the world trying to direct this lumbering, enraged giant into breaking someone else’s stuff instead of theirs.

    “That alone should justify going to war in the deranged mental state of all the socialists.”

    And they say the problem is ‘Liberal Dems’ slander?

    Would Assad or Putin have come up with this plan, if Obama hadn’t been threatening military action?

    This is great. Kerry makes an off hand flippen response to a question and Putin jumps on it. Putin and Assad are now moving the pawns around so it will seem Assad will turn over the gas he claims was never used by him. USA will back down. Assad is on record telling us that there are many factions in his country that he has “no control of” yeh right if you ask me. More get gassed but Assad gets a pass via Russia. The World looks at the USA weak yet again and has to flip flop on who they are going to bomb.

    The only way for the “plan” to work is if Obama wanted all sides that are fighting be bombed. You either bomb all sides or no sides. We can not pick a winner or a loser because they are both loser or bigger losers. That was the problem with the red line, line. It gave one side a reason to bomb the other side with gas. It did not matter who did it only where you could place the blame in the eyes of the world. Obama lost that bet and Kerry lied about the facts and Putin came out with what could be the closest to the truth.
    Now Putin and Assad are playing Obama and the USA again. It is a part of the solution. But you can not just say I will only bomb one side. You can not be seen picking radical over more radical. Assad already has his scapegoats. He has stated there are many factions in his nation “he has no control over” So my guess that is half a lie in that sure there are those who are against him but there are also those who will be doing his bidding without him telling them what he wants. So my prediction, Assad will turn over the gas but the gas attacks will happen again.
