Obama to seek support for Syria strike at G20 summit in Russia
CTV News ^ | 9-3-12 | CTV

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama this week plans to urge reluctant world leaders to support a U.S.-led military strike against Syria as he attends a global summit in Russia and makes a stop in Sweden. His three-day overseas trip comes as his administration seeks authorization from Congress.

Top lawmakers signalled support Tuesday after meeting with Obama, while France said it will wait for Congress' decision before any military action of its own.

Obama's presence at the Group of 20 gathering in Russia is bound to bring questions about Syria, recently leaked U.S. surveillance programs and especially his tense relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, an ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad.Mayo)

"It's been like watching a slow-moving train wreck for nearly two years," Andrew Kuchins, a Russia expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said of the Obama-Putin relationship. "Mr. Putin and Mr. Obama don't like each other at all."

Putin will diss and dismiss the Peace Prize President, and in his anger, Obama will something really stupid, like attack Russian Warships when they try to shoot down our incoming missles over Syria.

I’m sure the Army Recruiters are just swamped by all the radical gays rushing to join the Army, so they can fight in Obama’s Syrian War, right?

Sending the missiles in now will be as big a mistake as how this fraud handled the Benghazi mess.

From wikipedia:

On 8 June 1913, a year before the Great War began, The New York Times published a special supplement devoted to the 25th anniversary of the Kaiser's coronation. The banner headline read: "Kaiser, 25 Years a Ruler, Hailed as Chief Peacemaker". The accompanying story called him "the greatest factor for peace that our time can show"—and credited Wilhelm with frequently rescuing Europe from the brink of war.

And, meanwhile, behind the scenes, the Kaiser was disliked by almost all foreign leaders as a vain, arrogant, unstable man.

This will be an afterthought at best.

Wasn’t Obama’s main reason for going to the G20 meeting in the first place to pledge his allegiance to the gay agenda in Russia?

I can’t see him letting Syria get in the way of that more important goal.

Obama could have traded Top Secret Technology to Russia in exchange for their support. But Russia already has access to all that thanks to the multiple breaches in our national security.

I’m sure most of us have some experience in negotiating business deals. On occasion, during contract negotiations, I’ve found myself in the enviable position of A) having the upper hand and B) negotiating with complete (or inexperienced) nincompoops. It can get “unfair”.

I have to wonder, what do world leaders go through in their preparations for meetings with our own Ruler. I’m sure they get ready by giggling about how lopsided it will be. To them, it’s like clubbing baby seals.

Has anyone considered that this is all staged so as to embarrass the US even more?

Remember that the name of Obama’s and his administration’s game is to permanently damage the US as it was envisaged by its Founders.

Can’t wait to see his reaction when he realizes Bush got approximately 10184375 times more international support for his foreign policy actions than he ever will. Hope his reaction gets captured on video.
