    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.

    @Larry

    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?

    @warjoski

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

    Countries America owns agree with our “evidence” and France even says they will help.
    All the rest of the countries in the world have another view, that things are indeed exactly how they appear.
    Saudi agents exploded a Saudi weapon killing Syrian citizens so American missiles will destroy Syrian government.
    .
    No mystery, not even cleverly done. But it did not have to be clever, it only has to convince Americans.
    Americans are getting a full on media blitz complete with innuendo, demonizing, and outright lies.
    I have to wonder why those in charge are so adamant about the attack, what is the gain for them personally?

    You’re making no sense. Obama declared his only goal was destroying chemical weapons in Syria, not regime change, not driving out Al-Qaeda. Short of invasion, there is no way to bring peace to Syria. That would be temporary, at best. As we see in Iraq & Afghanistan, occupation only postpones the fight. There is no public support for another futile occupation.

    It looks like Obama gets what he wanted without firing a shot. Seems to be making the conservatives go nuts.
