Is it true??? that Pelosi said we have to bomb Syria in order to find out whose chemical weapons are in it. 😉
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.
