    It was very stupid of Obama to give them that red line BS. He wanted to sound like a real man with a back bone but all it did was show he does not have a clue on the world scale.
    Now with that said here is the problem. The enemy would love nothing better than Obama to jump. They have already seen how well the Peace Prize Collar has been used to run him around on a leash. So who really did the gassing? Which side? Why would they gas them? What does the other side have to gain if they make you believe that the red line has been crossed? This is the hole Obama has dug and truthfully I see no real out or a clear answer.

    Are you in contact with any Syrians? Every Syrian I know who has called friends in Syria and asked, ‘What happened?’ agrees with you.


    Strangely, the Guardian was very sceptical about the gas claims several months ago (too long ago for me to find the link, which I posted before), while the New York Times said (back then when the first claims were made) that Obama had to act immediately, but now the Guardian is writing that poison gas is confirmed, while the New York Times is sceptical.

    No inside knowledge, I just know how to play chess. Right now Syria would have to much to lose to be doing this. Not that, that they would not hesitate to do so, but why now? But the other side? If they could make Obama jump? Both sides are good at faking and framing and neither side is our “friend”. So I guess it might be a good thing that Obama’s default for when things go wrong is to do nothing.

    McCain would have bombed Syria, Egypt, Iran, and a fourth country to be named later.

    I agree completely with your assessment. I could quibble with some minor points, but overall I think you are right: at this time, the best action is to take no action. Neither side is our friend, and the only thing intervention would do would be to exaggerate that fact.

    I am not sure about that, But Mc has become a little to stupid in the last few years. One would have hoped in his 1st term he would have learned to listen to his advisors. The people he would have around him would know better than what Obama has gotten us into. He would have been more aggressive in the beginning of course so he would have had some fall back room now. Obama has with his apology tour and Peace prize coler and snubbing of our allies and Israel, Well Obama’s only move was to make stupid remarks like the red line and such. It is not like he could sit back because that is all he has done on the world stage.

    I thought PAJ was Howie and Steven was Ima.

    That’s what many of us said at the beginning of Dubya’s first term. Look how well that worked out.

    He did and it worked so much better then Obama has! We at least had respect on the world stage. Now we have a joke.
    W would have never gone on a apology tour! Here is the problem with Obama and the 1st year. He showed nothing but weakness in the eyes of the Radicals. He in not so many words blamed the USA and W for “man made disasters” or what ever youthanism he came up with. 1st rule is to know your enemy. Show weakness and they will not respect you! 2nd rule know your allies. Obama snubbed our allies! W at least understood rule 1 and 2.
    But as i have said since day one, Obama only knows Sal Alansky and on the world scale that is like playing Checkers while the rest is playing chess! The world 1st put a collar on Obama with the Peace prize now they are leading him around.
    Oh Obama what are you going to do now? You backed into making a hollow threat. You have never once called it for what it is so are you this time? So the Enemy calls his bluff. Obama is now in a lose lose. He jumped the checker over a pawn because he had no pawn nor a bishop nor a rook. He had nothing because he started with NO RESPECT!
    So don’t tell me W would have been in this lose lose, I don’t think Mc would have been either. I know Mitt would not have been.

    I agree: Obama should have gone on a middle finger tour like Warshrub did and bomb the Syrians so that the middle east hates us more than they already do. What was Obama thinking?

    So many points. So little time.

    Regarding the “apology tour”: I know you will disagree, and you are welcome to do so, but he spoke the truth. We had a heinous crime committed against us, and instead of pursuing the perpetrator, we invaded two countries and pretty much destroyed the future of one of them (Afghanistan’s future will evidently always be just like its past). It was wrong then; it is still wrong.

    I’ll go you one better for rule #1: Know how to create an enemy (or inflame one) and then DON’T DO IT.

    Obama’s Peace Prize was given for one reason and one reason only: he didn’t exhibit the tendency of his predecessor of shooting first and asking questions later. Cowboy diplomacy made the rest of the world wondering when the next blunder would occur. Don’t believe me? Let’s take North Korea. At the end of the Clinton administration, when they had started to reduce their emphasis on nukes and hatred, we determined (through that arcane method called “diplomacy”) that North Korea was unhappy because we never created a peace treaty at the end of the “conflict” in the fifties. Mr. Carter was negotiating a peace treaty with them, but then came the 2000 elections. GWB scuttled that effort and accused them of being part of the Axis of Evil, and they redoubled their efforts in creating nukes and missiles.

    And the other effect: remember the other countries of the so-called Axis: Iran and Iraq? And then we invaded the only country in the three that didn’t have an active nuclear program. What did that say? “If America doesn’t like you and you have a nuke program, they won’t invade; if you don’t they will.”

    And let’s not forget some other winners of the Peace Prize: international war criminals Henry Kissinger and Yassir Arafat.

    You may maintain that Mr. Obama started with no respect. I will question how that came about. My opinion is we had so little respect thanks to GWB’s policies. Remember when the G20 had a group picture, and no one would let Dubya get next to them? He took all the good feelings and sympathy from around the world after 9/11 and ran it into the ground with unnecessary and costly wars and torture/renditions.

    As far as your contention that Mitt Romney would not have gotten us into a lose/lose… Speaking of knowing your allies: When Mr. Romney was the Republican candidate, he managed to piss off England (Olympic security), Israel (defense issues), and Spain (their economy) in one week. His foreign policy would have been disastrous, and we’d now be arguing about why our fighting forces would be dying in Syria and Iran right this minute.

    “Blowing up random brown people when something goes wrong: Ima’s foreign policy.”

    Sounds like justification for a ‘preemptive defense’ by the brown team.
