In the past few weeks, Obama and his Secretary of State, John Kerry, have been determined to commit an act of war against the Syrian Government for the alleged use of Saran Nerve gas against its own people. Naturally, the pair ignored reports that it might have actually been the rebels who used the chemical agent. In a buffoonish attempt to act tough, Kerry told the British press that “President Bashar al-Assad has one week to hand over his entire stock of chemical weapons to avoid a military attack.” He didn’t think the Russians or the Syrians would take his verbal diarrhea seriously. He later went on to accuse the al-Assad regime of deploying chemical weapons without any proof.
Obama doesn’t have the guts to take a risk. He talks tough, but his actions say otherwise, playing golf or cards while missions are in progress. Leon Panetta gave the kill order on Osama bin Laden. And Barack was nowhere to be found during the Benghazi murders. Given the record of cowardice from this Kenyan Muslim, it’s no surprise that he punted on a decision to attack Syria by deferring the matter to Congress. Besides, the American public wasn’t buying his attempt to wave the flag. He saw his chance to aid the al-Qaeda lead rebels sinking faster than Alex Rodriguez’s reputation. Obama has lost the support of his base of low information voters regarding Syria.
Say what you will about Vladimir Putin, but he isn’t stupid. Taking advantage of Kerry’s daft pronouncement, Putin and Assad agreed to the idea of handing over chemical weapons to an international body on the condition the Obama regime will not attack Syria. Kerry and Obama were surprised by the offer and, like the buffoonish politicians they are, took credit for the offer to make themselves look like political geniuses. Of course, he’ll never admit it; but Obama was bailed out of a mess of his own making by the Russian President.
And now, thinking they have the upper hand, Obama and Kerry are making demands over their guffaw regarding Syria. Instead of making progress, the former sailor is doing his best to scuttle the talks. No wonder Charlie Rose is questioning the President’s credibility on Foreign Policy. Common sense should have told these fools to be a little more agreeable to the man who pulled their elitist butts form a political disaster. Like typical fools from the Hill, they are too full of themselves to understand that they are embarrassing the American people on the world stage.
The only adult in this kabuki theater is Vladimir Putin. Obama and Kerry are the bloviating fools who would make Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne look like Rhodes Scholars.
