The fact that you didn't even mention that his Bulls are still in the NBA Playoffs, shows just how out-of-touch you really are...
Kind of scary actually — America doesn't know who it is that gives Hussein his instructions.
Red line, shmed line, what difference, at this point, does it make?
He was only doing a poor imitation of Netanyahu anyway...actually TRYING to sound like a leader.
President Obama is right on this. Why should we be involved in Syria?
Why would diplomacy try to avoid public ‘red lines’? Especially on something like chemical weapons? Because terrorists are generally lazy. They would much rather toss a bomb into a pressure cooker, or strap it to a person, than go through the effort to create some extensive remote timed detonation system.
And you can use common household chemicals to create a similar result to militarized chemical weapons. If the terrorists who are attempting to topple Assad can get the US military to topple him for them by killing a few hundred innocents, it is an event that they’re more than willing to fulfill. Not only will the military do their work, but they can sit back and point at the great Satin who is once again bombing innocents, and forcing their way into Islam’s sphere without invitation.
I have no love of Assad, but creating yet another terrorist Mecca after making so many is hardly in our interests.
Actually his anonymous adviser is right on this in your opinion. He would appear to originally have been wrong as you see it but is now coming around to your way of thinking.
Now you’ve done it. The neocons are staging a frontal attack on you right is very second.
“President Obama is right on this. Why should we be involved in Syria?”
Now there are two things Obozo and I agree on:
1. Let the Syrians kill each other.
2. We both like arugula,

Excellent what if, and a very probable one.
I don't find anything inappropriate about that comment.
The statement amounts to administrational dithering. Action is not required while dithering is in process.
History will determine that Obama lacked the ability to make decisions and dithered as a matter of policy
Agreed, a plague on both their houses. No matter who wins in Syria, we lose and Syrian Christians, what few are left, lose even bigger.
Doesn’t the _resident know he has more options than “boots on the ground?” Maybe he should ask Bill Clinton about the air war gambit.
Ah, taking lessons from Hillary. “What difference does it make?”
So, if Israel kills a few Muslims that attacking Israel, I don’t think the mooselimb in the whitehut will say those same words.
What’s it got to do with us?
For once I agree with Obama!
1. If Muzzies want to kill other Muzzies, I don’t see why we should interfere. Just doing the job Americans refuse to do. I see no upside in getting involved, and certainly no upside that would warrant wasting military resources (paid for by taxes confiscated from people like me at - ultimately - the point of a gun), nor any upside that would warrant wasting the lives of our best young men like my neighbor’s son.
2. Since WWII we’ve never really made any lasting positive difference with such military escapades anyway.
3. The Syrians are depleting their stockpiles of WMD (which could be used against us) - another plus.
4. All the newspaper ink, airtime and bandwidth now being devoted to this conflict and the indecisiveness on Obama’s part, can now become better focused on things that really matter, like his possible upcoming impeachment trial.
