He was against it, before he was for it? This is funnier than any rodeo clown...if you're not a Syrian, being told to hurry up...and wait for American politicians to get back from their vacations before we launch a few cruise missiles at their camels and tents. Obama looks forward to the debate, but does anyone else?
Even in Massachusetts people are beginning to ask questions about this Administration's Foreign Policy IQ;
Syria, as bad as it is, isn’t even close to the greatest foreign policy failure of the Obama administration. It’s a symptom of Obama’s abandonment of the region. And the high (low?) point of that policy was Obama’s decision to abandon the moderate, pro-Western citizens of Iraq to the extremists.
Obama’s withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq will be viewed by history as one of the greatest foreign policy blunders of all time.
Please don’t start the tired “Bush Lied, People Died” nonsense. Forget the faulty intelligence on Iraq’s WMD program. Even if you lie in bed at night sticking pins in your “W” voodoo doll, it’s irrational to ignore the pragmatic value of a U.S. military force in a U.S.-leaning Iraq in the heart of the mess that is Obama’s “Arab Spring” Middle East.
Having 10,000 trained, intelligence-gathering troops bolstering the flagging courage of timid (small “d”) democrats and rattling the nerves of despots and terrorists is a good thing — no matter how we got there.Too bad the American electorate didn't think about that before electing this dilettante.
