    “they”? meaning that the elephants in the room are not part of America, at least they don’t accept that our president won 2 elections.
    Come on guys we are all Americans and all of us should be in it together.

    Wow! Spot on. Anyone who doesn’t hope the deal with Putin & Assad (as odious as they are) doesn’t result in dismantling Syria’s chemical weapons program needs a reality check.

    Last time I checked, no one wants another ground war involving the US.

    According to the Observer, the anti-government forces and the government forces are very closely matched, as in Libya, the barrage of cruise missile will tip the balance and the anti-government forces will be able to destroy the government with no US boots needed.

    Once the Syrian government and their Hezbollah allies are destroyed, Sunni Islamists will take over Syria.

    This is what all the US allies want.

    Israel hopes the Sunni Islamists will spend all their time fighting the Shia Islamists, so neither will have time to bother Israel.

    Saudi Arabia figures the Sunni Islamists will follow Riyadh, giving a tasty chunk of the fertile crescent to Saudi Arabia.

    Europe has been promised cheaper and more reliable oil and gas by Saudi Arabia and Qatar if Syria it handed over to Sunni Islamists (who include many groups: al-Qaeda, the Brotherhood, al-Nusrah, etc., etc.).

    Obama is following standard US procedure: first, get the target to hand over all its WMD with promises that this will allow it to avoid a massive US strike, as Bush, jr promised Saddam and as Bush, jr and Obama promised Qadhafi. Then, when the WMD are all gone, strike and strike hard until the government is destroyed and the nation is in total chaos, so the Friends of the US can pick up the pieces.

    Obama does it more efficiently than Bush, jr (compare the cost of destroying Libya—just a few months, a few bombs, a few dollars and an ambassador—with the cost of destroying Iraq—years and thousands of US troops dead and more than a trillion dollars).

    and now it the Republicans fault for “Barry” inability to lead or deliver… or is it the fault of the people who elected him… Drop “Free Obama” phones on them…

    Assad has agreed to give up chemical weapons, has signed on to the international chemical weapons treaty, an agreement has been reached between the US and Russia, and not one young American has been put in harm’s way. That hardly sounds like a failed policy to me.

    They appear to have lost all sanity.

    “Nobama.” There seem to be limitless wordplay on the name “Obama.” Has anyone made a complete list of them? Is there a technical literary term for intentional wordplay of this type? Aside from the rude intent, they are often very clever.

    I think we should drop David and Radish on Assad , or would that be a crime against humanity?

    Hmm, when the deserter Bush drew a “red line, in blood”, and didn’t back down what he and his “people” had planned BEFORE THEY WERE EVENELECTED”, hundreds of thousands died, an nation’s were destroyed, physically, politically, and socially! Hmm, Obama draws a PROMISE, and finally, someone else steps up to prevent death, and war. When there IS no “good answer”, and push has come to shove, and RUSSIA is moved to action, what ARE the actual “facts”, and why should idiot trolls be told all that went into the process, they couldn’t begin to understand? (BTW, I reference the “trolls” IN CONGRESS, not here!)

    The toon is in my opinion saying that O has put himself in a situation where he has no good options. (subjective) The Pubs are laughing at the POTUS and Dems , thinking that they have degraded themselves . Uncle Sam is questioning the Pubs thinking , All the while knowing the biggest losers are the people.

    If it refers to Bushes war, I am against war no matter who gets into it. I have been saying that to start a war will be Obama’s biggest mistake.
    There have been several things I think he has been wrong on a number of occasions.
    I wasn’t for war then, and not for war now!

    And Tiger said I didn’t accept that Bush won 2 terms, that is just dumb, Of course he won 2 elections.
    Like I said war, BUshes war, Nixon’s war, and even the smaller Little wars, I don’t like.
