Kerry says “our troops were protected in Vietnam...”

I thought he said we used them on the Vietnamese back in the day..How bizzare...Here comes Jengis Khan!

Hey Kerry...where’s Jane???Will she go sit on a syrian missle? ha.

No American boots on the ground..he makes no sense. Once you go in-—deter and degrade Asshat’s ability to use chem WMD’s—UH, Duh. How do you do that without going to war?

This idiot makes no sense whatsoever. How are we going to keep the weapons out of the alQuida’s hands? Can you say”Boots on Ground”/

Of course not, this is just an "action" don't you know. Libs are masters at using words to change meaning, isn't Obamacare the affordable healthcare act - as prices skyrocket??

Now Hagel doesn’t want those chem weapons to get into Hezzbolah hands. How are you going to do that, except go in and get the WMD’s????

UH<why not just lob some missles over into the hornet’s nest and destabalize Syria some more and then what???

He said two tyrants had used them in the past. Didn’t name them but it was Hitler and Saddam.

Then said Assad has become the third one, now.

The other number he gave was his claim of how many TIMES Assad is believed to have used them including the most recent.

Really? We’ve let him get away with it 10 times before?

What does that say about blood on Obama’s hands that they now want to claim will be on Republican’s hands in the future if they don’t rubber stamp this stupidity?

Brad Sherman holding Kerry’s hand as he walks him through a hypothetical: if Assad uses chemical weapons again, the administration can come back to Congress and get another 60 days.

For each use of chemical weapons, they get extension of sixty days. This is absurd......he is telling us they can diminish their capacity with a strike BUT when they use CW again we get an extension. This is a red herring to get the green light to assist the Brotherhood.

Too many of the Republican interrogators use up half their 5 minutes for windy weasel words signifying nothing....but are aimed only at their brainless constituents sitting on the sofa at home.

Their wind-bag preludes are designed to assure the world they're not only on top of the issue, but on both sides as well.

I'm only impressed by the Trey Gowdy types who go right to the jugular in the first question....and continue doing so thereafter.
