UNITED NATIONS — A meeting of the U.N. Security Council’s permanent members ended quickly Thursday with no sign of progress on an agreement over Syria’s crisis.

The meeting Thursday afternoon started breaking up after less than an hour, with the ambassadors of China, France, Britain, Russia and the United States steadily walking out.

Twitter sources saying BOTH China and Russia walked out.

I'm betting Putin and China just laid down a "Red Line".

This makes the Media Messiah look horrible, so CNN hasn't mentioned it at all, yet.

They won't.

Once again we'll be forced to go to Pravda for the truth.

Bilingual pun fully intended

After the Libya “no fly zone “ con job that Obama pulled, and the “anti-war” left stayed utterly silent about, Russia and
China are determined not to be hoodwinked by
the Most Holy Obama again.

Obama has a severe weakness that his supporters view as a strength. He has absolutely zero ability to negotiate or build a consensus. Zero. He came from community organizing, where the strategy is to bully and intimidate, not build agreement between different parties. This is why when he can’t get his demands from congress, he just goes around them. We now see how badly this is wearing thin internationally.

Ostensibly I should be concerned about how all this idiocy from Obama is making the country look weak and foolish, and degrading our stature in the world. But, I don’t know; this country has become such a grotesque sewer, diving into degeneracy from fag-marriage to dope to open-borders, all while a wildly corrupt government and its agencies run roughshod over everyone.

I really just don’t give a damn anymore. I hope Putin DOES bloody Obama’s nose. If America loses face, so be it. The die was cast when the voters opted for this scumbag in the White Hut.

David Cameron said it was clear the British Parliament does not want action and "I will act accordingly".

These two pro-sodomy clowns are the worst duo in modern history.

Compare them to two BRILLIANT leaders:

Back in the 1980s, American and Britain had two strong and moral leaders.

Today, it is the exact opposite.

Gee, I wonder WHY . < /sarc>




The Muslims are guilty of the chemical attack, not the Christians, and the ILLEGAL ALIEN IN CHIEF knows it.
But the ARAB-KENYANand MUSLIM defiling the Oval Office doesn't care.
Barack Hussein Obama II, (a.k.a. Barry Soetoro) just want to turn Syria into another Muslim Brotherhood run country, and kill Christians.
It's just that simple!

Read Obama Gets His War On by Daniel Greenfield.
Here's what I got out of it.

Things are not going well for Obozo Liar and his Muslim Brotherhood kitchen cabinet in Euro land and Nato:

Obama Liar’s mediots are having a hard time with the reality, that only France is willing to back Obozo Liar and his Muslim Brotherhood kitchen cabinet in a war with Syria.

US finds itself with only 1 War with Syria partner, France:

ELAINE GANLEY, AP
Fri Aug 30, 1:55 PM UTC
PARIS (AP) — The United States found itself Friday with France as its only major partner in a potential strike against Syria, after a stunning rejection of military force in Parliament forced Britain, America’s staunchest ally, to pull out of any operation.

The collapse of British support for a mission to punish Syria for allegedly using chemical weapons puts pressure on President Barack Obama as resistance grows at home — and comes with the irony that France was the most vocal critic of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
