There are moreApple stores in Tehran than in the entire state of Indiana. This might be some kind of favoritism, or perhaps a death wish. Does Cook fantasize about being snuffed by a big, strong, radical Islamist who thinks homosexual people should not be allowed to live? That is just too weird, so what else could fuel his oddly inconsistent behavior?
Most likely, Cook will do anything to secure power for the leftists, but he really is playing with fire. Anything could happen to him once the Islamists or the leftists no longer find him useful.
Very briefly, John Kerry, the formerly anti-war Secretary of State made an off the cuff comment about Bashir Assad giving up his chemical weapons, in order to stop an attack from the U.S.
This gaffe, which he tried to take back, because it did not agree with U.S. policy (He even explained the gaffe to the Russians), has now BECOME U.S. Policy. Putin jumped on the opportunity to give his side of the world a laugh at Obama’s expense, making an offer that could not be refused. Assad will give up his chemical weapons (i.e. let Russia store them for awhile) and Putin will continue to arm Assad and Iran, the latter of which is promising to destroy the U.S. The only ones not pretending to be happy are the Syrian rebels.
Assad has resumed bombing Damascus with conventional weapons…….. and everything is all good with Obama now. The media has resumed singing praise of his brilliance, calling this a great success, and crediting the machismo of Obama for causing Assad sending his weapons of mass destruction to the Russian storage facility for awhile.
Yes, it is the third term of Jimmy Carter. The U.S. is the laughingstock of the world.
To lead off, here’s another report, this time from the Germans,that casts doubt on whether Assad is responsible for the use of chemical weapons on Syrian forces. According to this source, intercepted communications showed Assad denying permission for the use of chemical weapons.
Every few hours brings a new shift in the Middle East policy and plans. It’s making Putin look almost reasonable, and Obama appear indecisive and incompetent. Who would want to rely on U.S. foreign policy now?
Obama’s agenda to diminish the stature of the U.S. in the world is proceeding as well as any leftist could hope.
****Meanwhile, don’t forget to tell your congress critters to DEFUND obamacare and to kiss off the latest immigration amnesty package, while you voice your opinion on the Syrian mess.
