OMG these people really are bad. I mean, what a three-ring circus. Are they just so full of themselves that they think they can say whatever they want and dont have to discipline their speech to hew to an actual policy?
Obama, you remember, drew a red line off the top of his head committing us to military action against Syria. And now Secretary of State John Kerry has offered Syria a splendid opportunity to delay, confuse the issue, and confound the United States.
Asked at a news conference today in Britain if there was anything Syrian President Assad could do to avoid an attack, Kerry mused, Sure, he could turn over every single bit of his chemical weapons to the international community in the next week turn it over, all of it, without delay and allow the full and total accounting.
Kerrys own spokeswoman described this as a rhetorical exercise rather than a proposal, according to the New York Times.
But the Russians, who practice diplomacy like an art form and love to confuse issues, could barely contain their delight. They decided, with rational thought that somehow eludes U.S. leaders, that what the Secretary of State says is in fact U.S. policy. And so Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who was meeting in Moscow with Syrias foreign minister, Walid al-Moallem, offered Russias kind assistance in corralling Syrias chemical weapons. Moallem said Syria welcomes Russias proposal.
So now, completely by accident, a very serious alternative to bombing Syria has emerged. The opportunity here for mischief and delay is unlimited Oh, were rounding up the weapons, but this takes time, and of course UN inspectors must confirm, and wait arent there a few more? . . .

ping. This guy nails it. We are back to where we were dealing with Saddam post-9/11.
Rose is an imbecile. Assad, on the other hand, actually made sense.
They have near total control of the US media and they know they will get cover.
John F Kerry, employee of the month
It’s okay, obviously God had a hand in it, and caused the pompous moron to utter that statement. Millions of prayers were answered and WWIII postponed for a little longer. Make the most of it...
Clown Prince president. Clown Car administration members. Clown interviewers. I feel it insulting that they don’t wear clown suits and clown shoes.
They may get cover. But America will not. Somewhere down the line, we will have to deal with this just like we did with Saddam, because with this ‘international inspector’ BS, we are now locked in for years to come.
I actually had similar thoughts.
That's the point, to distract from the Hussein / Morsi Egyptian Terrorist Trials!
Putting the “rebels” into power was never the answer.
>> John F Kerry, employee of the month
I didn’t realize Hell acknowledged “employee of the month”.
With them, everything is impromptu, off-the-cuff, make it up as you go along.
These are not serious people. And that's gong to make for a long -- and dangerous -- 44 months to go.
“Its okay, obviously God had a hand in it, and caused the pompous moron to utter that statement. Millions of prayers were answered and WWIII postponed for a little longer. Make the most of it...”
Eyes likes your thinkin’, Errant. And my bet is you’re right on the money.
Who the hell is that? OMG
Putin is playing poker.
Obama plays pokee...
