mizchief: Maybe you will regret crying racism every time someone criticizes Obama when your fighting in the midst of a major global conflict.


that is just too difficult a concept for him to grasp, leave him alone it will waste your time.

xanadian: Moscow vehemently opposes the US-led plans for military action against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in response to the chemical attack outside Damascus last month.

OK, then, wise guys, what do YOU suggest people do about it?  Just let Assad keep on gassing people, like a guy who's had one too many servings of baked beans at the local Golden Corral?

I haven't heard a single good solution to this problem.

/probably because there isn't one


I would think the Russians believe it's an internal mater and doesn't need to be solved. There where reports back in the Chechen war that Russia used chemical weapons but no one could get in to verify it. Also Iraq used chemical weapons in the 80's and no one did anything.

Does Putin remember reading about what the Kaiser did to Russian troops in the first great war?

Probably. He is probably okay with it too.

deanis: Tyee: out classed, out maneuvered, out thought, under supported, over exposed and all around not competent for the job.

lol wut


Pretty much.  Gonna bite though, I can't help it.  Low hanging troll fruit.

Tyee: Obama is in so far over his head.


Really?  He is?  So, what experience does he need beyond Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya?  Is there some class that the Heritage foundation offers that he missed on matters like this?  Some pamphlet, maybe?

He's so out classed,

Who, exactly, is he "out classed" by?  Honestly, I am perplexed by your use of the word.  Are you saying that he is deficient in class in a way that makes him not a classy guy?  I mean, he dresses well, seems affable and able to hold a conversation.  Or do you mean that the leader of the free world is not in the same class as, what, Putin?  In what respect?  Could you elaborate on the superiority of these vague others you are referring to?

out maneuvered,


Again, by who?  By Russia?  From what I see, the rest of the world knows what is going on, and is, frankly, too afraid of the possible repercussions of acting.  Or maybe they are just sick of war.  The actual supporters of the regime are not going to directly confront us in a military fashion, so... who cares?  Or do you mean at home, like a partisan thing?  Because it seems as though there is support and opposition on both sides?  Given he is a second term president, and can frankly do this without asking Congress, seems like he is pretty much where he wants to be.

out thought,

This is the pot calling the kettle black, but I am fairly certain you are used to pointing this out about Mr. Kettle, amirite?  Considering the legacy he inherited, and his general desire to avoid war if at all possible, we can gather he has ample intelligence regarding what has happened there, and feels it is our duty to do this.  So, it looks like his thought is profoundly deeper than yours on the subject.

under supported,

Exactly how much support does he need to lob some missiles over the fence?  There are supporters.  Much of the non-support doesn't ring of moral outrage, more like "dude, I really just don't want to get mixed up in that mess."

over exposed


Right, ladies?

I am sure you mean something, just not sure what.

and all around not competent for the job.  And Putin a backwoods hayseed hick from a near 3rd world country is beating him like a drum.

First of all, there is an incredible amount of learning and culture from Russia.  You sound like a typical, uneducated American, and this is coming from a fellow American.  There is a reason why the US lived in nigh perpetual fear of the country for decades.  Get yourself some education, man.  Backwoods?  He grew up in Leningrad.  Maybe not NYC, but not rural.

As for Putin, he graduated from Law School before becoming KGB, and has pretty much maintained power since 1999.  He took a country that was floundering after the fall of communism, and brought order.  Yes, also corrupt and ruthless.  So, lesson?  He's smarter and more capable than anybody you have probably personally ever met.  After he's done making you look like an intellectual lilliputian, he could actually kill you with ease, using his bare hands, maybe muttering something about the richness of Russian art, literature, film...

Barry just come home now so you don't step on your dick anymore, please.  You're embarrassing the USA.
Just go to your room have a good cry and earn the peace prize you never deserved by doing nothing.


Don't be jealous of the well-endowed Kettle.  Yeah, the Nobel Prize was silly.  Personally, I think he has earned it by not beating some sense into the halfwits you support in Government.  God, could you imagine Bachman, right now?  Or hell, even Romney?  The soul shudders.

So, yeah, in conclusion, think.

You may have noticed that the responses I've received so far today have been attacks on me rather than the subject of the thread or attempts at defending the president for his incompetence.   It isn't about me. Ain't nobody got time for that.  The president's image and credibility or incompetence won't be restored or even slightly improved by criticizing me.
But to be fair you have to defend the nearly indefensible.

And as usual, Canadians will have to get in line to be evacuated by the British or Americans when they can find room to fit our people in.

It's so embarassing.

Would it be too much to use our troops and former peace-keepers and maybe a few rented airplanes or ships to get Canadian citizens to safety, even if they have dual or new citizenship?

From the whinging and whinging and kevetching when a lot of Canadians in Lebanon visiting the old family homestead (as many do in the summer when the weather is good) needed to be evacuated because of Israeli invasion, you'd think this was costing us arms and legs. Not really. The troops were safer in Lebanon than in Canada. At least they didn't  have to deliver pizza in under 25 minutes or its free!

Come to think of it, pizza delivery skills are transferable to modern battlefields. I just discovered a new found respect for the Canadian military and government, the farking bastards. They set out to be penny-pinching evil and accidentally did some good. Good on 'em. Now drop them into a war zone and let them find their way home.

Well, maybe I'm complaining to the wrong people. Maybe I should try this joke out on a home-grown audience. THE CANADIAN ATTITUDE TOWARDS CANADIANS OVERSEAS IS A JOKE, A BIG FARKING SICK JOKE! Yaaaaaaay! Wave more flags!

And don't try to tell me that many Canadians aren't xenophobic and racist. They way they whine when they have to help voluntary or New Canadians shows them up. We can't help everybody, of course, because even if Canada could and should have a population the size of, oh, let's say Japan or Nigeria, there's simply not enough money, time or room for everybody in Canada.

But I think it would be a good idea to bring our own citizens home when they need a lift.

So maybe I should write a couple of letters after this. Remind me, eh?

This is probably the best course of action, but we kind of made ourselves world police decades ago.
I am amused that the tables have turned so much in this country, the right is calling for restraint even though chemical weapons have been used.
Seems like just yesterday they were all good on a full out war on speculation...now they have a problem launching a few tomahawks, I wonder what changed?

Its just another strongman act.

The Russians know that Obama has no interest in a larger war. He's only asking for a week long "shock and awe" campaign, which itselfonly has mixed chances of passing in congress and little hope of achieving anything.  At best it might stall the civil war, assuming we take out Assads air force along the way.

When we bite and blow Putin wants to make it look like it was because Russia had Assad's back, not because US politicians were scared of bad poll numbers.
Despite all of the tough talk neither Russia nor any of Syria's neighbors want in on a large scale war.

netcentric: I was hoping this could lead to a super naval battle in the Med....


It wouldn't be that super of a battle. The Russian Navy is tiny and outdated compared to ours. Their entire navy barely matches just one of our fleets.

Some numbers:

Russia:
1 Aircraft carriers 
5 Cruisers
13 Destroyers
49 Submarines 
4 Frigates

USA:
10 aircraft carriers
22 cruisers
62 destroyers
71 submarines
23 frigates

Now this I'm not totally sure of, but I believe Russia's current fleet in the Med consists of somewhere around 16 ships, most of them small ships. They are also moving a missile cruiser there, but currently if I'm not mistaken their fleet there consists of one major ship, a single destroyer, and the other 15 are smaller ships (corvettes, landing ships, support ships, etc.). Aircraft stationed with the fleet amounts to three helicopter. Contrast this with our entire sixth fleet (around 40 ships and 175 aircraft) in the med and now another carrier group led by the USS Nimitz nearby in the Red Sea.

If there was a naval battle in the med the whole thing would be over in a single strike with the probable result being all Russian ships destroyed and likely not even a single hit on the US fleet.

If your numbers are accurate and Russia currently has two cruisers and four destroyers in the med, do you really think they would amount to anything more than a mild speedbump for our sixth fleet to roll over? He might as well have deployed a fleet of training targets, it would only be slightly less intimidating.

I don't think they plan on going to war with us. I think they plan on bombing American soil-just as we've gone and bombed as we've seen fit. Why can't OTHER countries take the move to attack us because they think WE'RE a threat as well-just like we're doing in Syria?

I know that the bible says that Damascus will lie in ruins-and subsequently after that, Babylon (the US) will fall as well. Read Revelation 18 like it's a Reddit post and that should scare you enough to start doing some research.

Farknuck: Vantango84: Farknuck: Vantango84: I do not understand why anyone thinks Russia would start a large scale war over Syria. Syria is not worth WWIII to them, but it seems like most of fark believes that's what's around the corner.

Russia has STATED REPEATEDLY THAT THEY WILL RESPOND to an attack without UN approval. It's not farking rocket science.

Okay. Do you honestly think they will? Outside of posturing, do you honestly think that a port and the money they make from selling Assad weapons is worth the astronomical costs and destruction that a war with the U.S. would result in?

I don't think they plan on going to war with us. I think they plan on bombing American soil-just as we've gone and bombed as we've seen fit. Why can't OTHER countries take the move to attack us because they think WE'RE a threat as well-just like we're doing in Syria?

I know that the bible says that Damascus will lie in ruins-and subsequently after that, Babylon (the US) will fall as well. Read Revelation 18 like it's a Reddit post and that should scare you enough to start doing some research.


Change your tinfoil!

Putin's sense of humor apparently similar to Stalin's. Next, a few tank divisions on the Georgian border? Funny guy.

mark12A: Meh. An intelligence ship to watch the show with, and two amphibious support ships to rescue their citizens with when shiat gets real, yo....


that makes a lot of sense... so if you couple this with Russia wants to look like the "good guy" in this area and we'll probably just bomb Syria's entire air force out of existence... Russia is looking to sell some planes when this is all over.

Tyee: Best case scenario right now is to have Obama come home and plead with the UN to enforce the red line he drew and stood by for a year until yesterday morning.


Hmm, who's a permanent member of the UN Security Council?
