I really do not understand some things. Obama is criticized for “not displaying strong leadership” and appearing wishy washy and confused. Somehow, he put stuff together and we are not using expensive and deadly force and the Syrian government agrees to stop using chemical weapons. I think that is called success. Do we have a guarentee that the success is permanent? Of course not, but would the use of deadly force have such a guarantee? Of course not. I cannot help but wonder if the pundits woud have been happier to see the US President stand tall and proud, while talking tough to give the appearence of strength and decisiveness, and then start the bombing?
