Putin Makes Obama Pay a High Price for Syria Escape
FOX News ^ | Sept 12, 2013 | By Chris Stirewalt

Posted on 09/14/2013 12:35:56 AM PDT by Jim Robinson

John Kerry can finally say he knows how Richard Nixon felt.

Kerry rose to power because of his leading role in the American antiwar movement of the 1970s. His testimony accusing, sometimes wrongly, American soldiers of atrocities in Vietnam launched a political career that took him to the Senate, the Democratic nomination for the presidency and, now, to the top post in President Obama’s cabinet.

Vladimir Putin rose to power because of his service in the KGB, which in the 1970s was trying to exploit and manipulate the American antiwar movement. We know that while Kerry and others on the left were comparing American troops to Genghis Kahn and throwing their medals away, the KGB was working overtime to infiltrate antiwar groups and overtly propagandizing with the same messages embraced by American liberals.

Kerry has certainly changed his tune. It would appear that Putin has not.

Kerry, more than any other American, can take credit for bringing the country to the cusp of entering the Syrian civil war on the side of Islamist rebels. His relentless sales pitch in speeches, in internal administration debates and to members of Congress very nearly precipitated U.S. airstrikes against Syria in reprisal for the use of chemical weapons last month in that country’s years-long civil war.

When President Obama opted to duck the decision on launching the strikes, Kerry chased the war plan down Pennsylvania Avenue to Congress. There, relying on what we have since learned is some intelligence from at least one questionable source, Kerry vainly sought congressional approval for going to war.

But the same dovish tendencies inside the Democratic Party that made Kerry famous and powerful...

While Obama is regretting his Syria quandary, Kerry is reveling in the fantasy of being an international hero.

Jim, if you noticed, they aren’t using the term “tailored strike” anymore...

Why?

Because I said it sounded like a sewing circle or a Martha Stewart episode helping fags pick out fabrics for their drapes.

In Hindsight, Kerry Says He'd Still Vote for War
even if he had known then that U.S. and allied forces would not find weapons of mass destruction.

"I believe if you do the statesmanship properly, I believe if you do the kind of alliance-building that is available to us, that it is appropriate to have a goal of reducing our troops" by August 2005, Kerry told reporters

Obama says that Syria’s WMDs are a direct threat to the United States.

Then Obama gave Putin the control of helping to remove the WMDs and secure the US!

WOW.

At what point does Obama get arrested for treason, taken to GITMO for aggressive interrogation to learn who the others in his cell are?

They’re talking on Fox right now about how the Sissy- Boy is afraid of Little ol’ Vladimir Putin, a Real Bad-Ass, who could twist Bambi into a Pretzle in 2 seconds, at the least provocation.

Though many don’t seem to agree on this I’m hoping he gets Zimmermanized. Definitely well deserved and rightfully so or all the chaos, fear, and tremendousstrain he’s put this country through. The list of damages he’s inflicted on thisn ation will fill volumes of hard drives and books in the future.

Putin, a man who worked for the secret police and kept the Gulag working, a man who aspires to be Russia’s President for Life, and the man whom Obama has turned to to get him out of the mess he, Obama, created with idle threats. You don’t get to be President for Life in Russia by being honest and sincere. Obama would know that if he hadn’t had so much Marxist claptrap shoved into his wee brain during his “education.”

We must remember the message from Obama to Putin...”I will be more flexible after the election”.

Now we must ask ourselves, is this the flexibility being shown now?

Behind the smoke and mirrors what is Obama and VC Lover Kerry signing away to Putin for this sham war over Syria that Obama was going to start?

God help Putin if Obama and Kerry signed over Texas to Putin...... Some commie is going to get an ass kickin....bwhahahahahahha

Aaaah, the puppet master and his puppet are reunited. This should be interesting theater now that we know the exact role of each.......

I posted this response on another post this morning, but believe it has relevance on this one as well.

What a sad day for Americans when they realize that the first negro president will be judged in history as the most inept, corrupt, wasteful, subversive, destructive and divisive president ever.

Here is a shadow of a man twice elected because of the color of his skin rather than the content of his character.

This phony mystery figure was a stoner Marxist thug in his youth, but he now commands the U. S. military and sends our young men to the cemetery through his silly-assed insane liberal views of engagement.

Just think about it!

Obama will never leave office—he is president for life—he or a hand picked clone will hold power forever. And they must! If they are voted out (how can they when they can cheat the vote?) they will face prison and/or exicution as traitors! So will the money men behind them and the media folk. No, they must stay in power—its life or death with them. They will figure a way, do what ever it takes to keep power—they must. So we have King and Queen Obama from now or until they are toppled. He will die in the bunker before he leaves the White House—he has no choice. can you really see him as an elder statesman like Carter or even Nixon? He can not. What ever happens—I fear, it will not end well.

Everyone in congress is suddenly acting upset on Putin, as if the reset button only applied because of Bush, as if it were a surprise secret that Putin is a thug.

They might as well include China trade in the lot.

Hypocrites and cowards comes to mind.

Indeed, it was not long ago liberals chanted that it was a job for a police agency like Interpol.

I do not see expected lay any of e coward alphabet agencies jumping behind Obama in volunteering for this war on poverty. No it must be tax payers and children of tarty in the military to pay.

Where are the obamaphoners when their leader needs volunteers for Ben ghazi or Syria.

People lined up behind Bush on 911 across the world, with Russians even showing up with US flags at the embassy in Moscow.

FU liberals, losers, weak cowardly losers, all words and no meaning behind their blabla for equality

American antiwar movement, (2) accusing US soldiers of
atrocities in Vietnam...... And, (3) Kerry's helpful demo WRT

I agree with you on the damage he’s done and undoubtedly will do in the next (agggghhh) 3.5 years....

But by the time he is done, I fear the populace of the US will be so worn down, enervated, and financially devastated, most will be reduced to bare survival. Talking about the 50% (now) that don’t support him. That number may be way down by the time 0bama leaves office, with a population driven by necessity to total government dependency.

It’s the plan, you know.

Seriously, I am already seeing this very thing in so many people’s lives I don’t know why more people aren’t angry. What he has done to the economy has devastated many people’s livelihoods and I expect it to get worse. Ideally I’d like to see one of his own people whose eyes have been opened and grown a conscious to do a tell all, enough to create a riot consisting if his own people that would drag him out of the WH onto the lawn so fast the military would have no time to react but when they did they would stand own and let him take the beating. Okay fantasy over...but it was good while it lasted. If I were a cigarette smoker I’d need one after that...lol

I said about the same thing after the Clintoon double term. It seemed to me that the Clintons had to be protected by the next administration. Never crossed my mind that Bush 43 would do that but he did. Not only did GW not prosecute the rest of the Clintonoids he couldn’t even get off hisass and retire all of Clintoon’s appointments. And that is how we got here. At some point we must elect a “house cleaner” to the presidency. Term limitz could help clean out congress but first we have to clean out congress at least to the point of a working majority. 2014 is going to be a heavy lift.
