Obama threatens war; Russia and Syria shrink back and offer to stop the gas; the threat of war recedes and all the concerned parties move to the negotiating table. How exactly is this a loss for Obama? How is he left tied in red knots? How does the United States not gain from the outcome? Am I missing something? Should I watch Fox News listening to Limbaugh until I ‘understand’ how red is black and neither one is white? Pathetic.
