Skip to comments.John Kerry: US 'Paid a Price' for Not Enforcing Obama's 'Red Line' in Syria

Former Secretary of State John Kerry said former President Barack Obama should have followed through on his infamous "red line" warning to Syria, and the United States "paid a price" as a result of Obama's inaction.
Obama vowed in 2012 that if Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime used chemical weapons on civilians, it would be a "game changer" for U.S. military involvement in Syria.
But Obama failed to enforce the promise a year later when hundreds of Syrians were killed in a sarin gas attack, and he instead brokered a multi-nation deal in which Assad pledged to remove his chemical weapons stockpile.

Obama, not Americans, failed to enforce the red line in Syria. Kerry too
Fine by me. The U.S. shouldn’t get involved in their civil war.
Hope TV gets this guy’s funeral soon. The only thing that will be deader than him will be the ratings.
Obama’s legacy is full of failures.
Remember that with regards to the hacking and interfering with our elections, he told Putin - “Knock it off.”
That was as effective as his “Red Line”.
Could you imagine an obama funeral? The media would make it a nine year event. They would make the month a federal holiday.

I always thought that the best way to kill jihadists and end terrorism was to pick off their leader then MOAB the funeral.
It was as phony as Obama!
Kerry means the “pink” line, doesn’t he?
Hard to understand why anything this unamerican fool utters is news or bears repeating?
Id prefer the Jerk die of natural causes. Violence is never good. But I wont be wishing that he live long and prosper. I consider him an enemy to the nation.
When Obama dies, Trump can announce he will be appointing a new Obama. Schumer will demand a filibuster.
The baited him into intervening in a civil war. A dead Syrian is still a dead Syrian. But failed to notice Obozo was a lady boy and could not locate testicles on his person. A good thing.
Ambassador Stevens paid a price for not enforcing another red line and standing down.
Barry was gutless and indecisive, and as he fades further into the rear view mirror look for more of his cabinet to come forward and admit that.
This is a joke right? Is this the Onion? If not why would that fool Kerry even say something like this? It makes even less sense than most of his inane drivelings.
McCain should have hanged for aiding and abetting terrorism and attempted genocide in that region. So should Kerry.
Mr Buttface2 (thankfully dead Mr McButtface is buttface prime) pretended that he was in the military once.
Hence, he is an expert.
All senators are. (sarc)
Even obama knew that sarin attack was a false flag timed to pull the US deeper toward a war with Russia
