Kerry says Obama has asked for new policy options on Syria Photo 6:41am EST

BEIJING (Reuters) - Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday that President Barack Obama has asked for possible new policy options on Syria given the worsening humanitarian situation there.

How about stop funding and arming the Al-CIA-duh mercenaries that are killing Christians and tearing the country apart?

No one is going to tolerate another war of intervention. Despite the caterwauling about atrocities and refugees, the image of our troops being sent around the world in feckless adventurism is bound to send any thoughts of using the military to a screeching halt.

the problem is Obama, not Kerry.

in light of the possible alternatives
with Obama in office,
Kerry seems reasonably competent and dignified-looking.

The policy for these incompetent, degenerate, clueless clowns (including Clown Prince nobama) should be to all resign their positions immediately so as to let adults take over.

I suppose “Kill anyone carrying a rifle and let God sort them out” isn’t an option...

The only acceptable option, for dumBO, is blame Bush. I am at a loss for a concept worse than incompetence.

Is “Stay Out” going to be one of the options?

options that may or may not exist

The last option may exist, but not until 2017.

Have they thought of “Freedom Flights” for the rebels? Bring’em all to America and...give them unrestricted US citizenship.

Unfortunately, you know they have.

“No one is going to tolerate another war of intervention.

I hope you’re right. But, the way I see it now is that Obama has declared a war of intervention on America & our liberty, and much of the US citizenry has chosen to occupy the sidelines.

If folks aren’t willing to defend themselves, how can we expect them to come to the defense of some unruly dictatorship halfway around the world that Obama has set his sights on.

The only entities out there that would object in any meaningful way would be other big players of the planet earth...Russia, China, Japan maybe.

Biden has some stiff competition for stupidest member of the administration.

I think we are seeing defense being played but it is kept out of the news media.

Every day people are making small moves of defiance.

That’s why the security apparatus is becoming unconscionable in this country. The PTB are feeling rather uneasy.
