    Letting others handle the problem was probably the plan from the beginning, which it should have been if it wasn’t. All the saber rattling worked to keep the Republicans, his own party, and the European community.

    Any war we’re not involved in, is not a good war, but it’s sure better than the ones we keep getting into.

    …Leaving a huge mess for others to clean up.

    Lately though ypoons Obama’s expression has mostly been a frown that most reminds one of a pouting six year old.

    It was a stimulus project…. It used union labor paid twice the normal rate, $600 hammers and cost over one hundred times what it should have.

    The sight of a frustrated cartoon elephant always sets them off.

    “…Leaving a huge mess for others to clean up…”
    What, you think civil war and WMDs are comparable to a mess on the living room floor? Thankfully for some mature people in charge.

    Obama’s detractors seem to be very annoyed that he is always one step ahead of their shallow foreign policy outlook.

    And on the freshly painted floor!

    NO Gypsy8, I think Obama did exactly nothing, zero, nada, zip point $4!+ about Syria. The whole chemical weapons issue is really grossly overblown compared to the death and destruction that is occuring from just conventional weapons.
    And, Obama is anything but “mature.” He is a narcissist in the extreme. His now near perpetual pouting over everything because he can’t get his way is one indication of it. Another is his complete inability to face and deal with criticism or a crowd / group that is not completely composed of slathering psychophants. It is as if he thought he was some over paid Hollywood super star whose own mediocrity was not apparent to him because he insulated himself from the “real world.”
    That is why he has been unable to get anything done on almost everything and why his few accomplishments have almost uniformly ended up failures.

    I recommend a book called, “The Brothers: John Foster Dulles, Allen Dulles, and their Secret World War.”
    It is an eloquent story of what happens when Ends Justify Means in American foreign policy.

    Use, production, and stockpiling of chemical weapons is banned by International agreement. And for good reason – just ask the victims. The use of conventional weapons is also destructive and lethal, but not a violatlion of International law. Civil war is horrible, but the overwhelming opinion of the American people and supporters is to let them sort it out themselves – not our problem and complex as to who are the good guys.
    Hard to deny it is difficult to get anything done when the House has taken a pact to prevent Obama achievements.
    But yet health care reforms have been achieved, albeit with growing pains, where before him Wilson, Roosevelt, Trumen, Nixon, and Clinton tried and failed.
    Does it really matter how he holds his mouth or if he expresses some sort of emotion? I’m more results oriented and results have been comparatively good, particularly in foreign policy but also domestic despite an extremely partisan opposition.
    I’d focus on the results not some perceived model of form.

    “Cowards like Obama will always find a way out!”
    When one doesn’t have a leg to stand on, he invariably resorts to insults.
    That said, it is crude to insult the President of the United States of America (who was elected into office by a majority of the people.)
    Please be a bit more civilized and at least respect the office.

    I’m starting to believe that most of the people who read Mile Luckovich do so only for an excuse to make their demeaning, insulting, hateful comments.

    I have a sign at my front door. It says,
    “Peace and Tranquility, Welcome.
    Negativity, get the hell out.”

    Gosh, and we could have had such a nice war in Syria. And not just your usual war, this one could have had chemical weapons, too. Just to make it more interesting for those watching at home.

    I agree, both parties voted for the Iraqi War. However, neither Congress nor the American people were allowed to have enough actual facts to form a reasonable opinion by the GW Bush administration. Heck, if you even raised any kind of objections (such as the French did) you were called unpatriotic or cowardly (or even both). Unfortunately the patriotic “Hero” types were wrong. Dead wrong, to over 4,000 of our young people, and their families.

    On top of that it has since become very apparent that the administration at that time had absolutely no idea of just what we were getting into. When it comes to the religious fanaticism of the Middle East, perhaps the best policy is to “do nothing”, and stay out of such quagmires!!
