John Kerry to Democrats: Munich moment By: John Bresnahan and Seung Min Kim and Jonathan Allen September 2, 2013 01:29 PM EDT
Secretary of State John Kerry told House Democrats that the United States faced a Munich moment in deciding whether to respond to the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government.
In a 70-minute conference call on Monday afternoon, Kerry derided Syrian President Bashar Assad as a two-bit dictator who will continue to act with impunity, and he urged lawmakers to back President Barack Obamas plan for limited, narrow strikes against the Assad regime, Democratic sources on the call said.
Kerrys derisive comments on Assad and his reference to the 1938 Munich agreement between Adolf Hitler and British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain - after which Chamberlain infamously declared it would lead to peace for our time - showed the hard line the White House is taking in its drive for congressional approval of the Syrian resolution. Top administration officials argue that a failure by the United States to respond to the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime would only lead to more violence and instability in the region.

It sounds more like a Munchkin Moment.
“Kerry derided Syrian President Bashar Assad as a two-bit dictator
“And I know what I am talking about - I hang out with him all the time!”
President Obama is still trying to figure out “who’s ass to kick”.
Hitlers “victory” at Munich led to Nuremberg. Maybe we can get lucky and have another version of those trials some day and try and convict those who waged war against the United States.....both foreign and domestic enemies.
This administration hopes for another Munich massacre, but they will take what they can get.
Or how he is going to “plug the damn hole..”
In European press they’re saying that the West hasn’t learned anything since the Algerian War. Well, the US hasn’t learned anything since Libya and Egypt, that’s for sure.
That is funny, because it’s true.
From the very beginning, this is “wag the dog” BS.
He’s referring to Neville Chamberlain’s deal with Hitler at Munich. But he’s not blaming it on Obama or himself, he’s blaming the Republicans in congress—of course.
Senator Kerry, why the long face?
In his latest Ramirez covers:
Syria Denies Using Chemical Weapons
Let me guess... someone stole his sweet-roll.
Meh, 0bama drew a line in the sand, years ago.
The sun still rises, the birds sing, life goes on.
Give Assad the room to eliminate the Al Queda fighters, and let Allah sort it out
It much more closely resembles the British ill-conceived decision to enter World War I. It got into the war for ill-defined reasons, not really compelled by any treaty, it became embroiled in a bloodbath that cost Britain a generation of its youth, nearly bankrupted the nation, began the fracturing of the Empire, uprooted its entire social structure, invested the country in pacifism leading to Munich, and ruined the nation with cynicism.
As I recall, the British Foreign Minister of the time, John Kerry's equivalent as Secretary of State, had much to do with committing Great Britain to that terrible war.
I am so glad it isn’t just me, who has no clue to what Kerry is talking about.
Man, you beat me to it. I picture him as just one of those silly little creatures.
Is it not enough that he has overseen the criminal coverup
of MANPADs and SAMs transfers to al Qaeda at Benghazi?
Now, he wants the Pentagon (bombed by al Qaeda)
to defend HIS Impostor-Calph’s MB and al Qaeda.
