Wow, Putin sure ate our lunch on this one. I'm sure Obama is just moping around the White House, stewing in the fact that he lost. All that he gets out of this is....  Syria disarming its chemical weapons, without the US having to fire a shot.

Obama sure is the loser here, right?

I'm sure it's a coincidence that Putin did this following his talk with Obama.

Love this quote:

Assad's government "is cooperating blamelessly with international inspectors,"

Assad should be commended; he only gassed his own people a few times. It's not like he made a habit of it.

Hey, Poot. How's that Chechen rebel thing working out for you?
 
2013-10-07 10:49:32 AM
You guys didn't get it, right? As soon as they destroy all the chemical weapons - we BANG! Bomb them just in case. And then transfer peacemaking role to al-caida. And Obama would get another Nobel Peace Prize for masterfully executing exit strategy, while passing buck to yet next another peacemaker.

Look, just because the entire thing played out like "Good Cop, Bad Cop", with the US playing the role of the renegade... You're missing the point.

Obama lost. That's what's important here.

So as a consolation prize he gets to continue slaughtering them with conventional weapons and explosives?  I'm sure the Syrian public is chalking this one up as a huge win for Obama and Putin.
 
2013-10-07 11:18:29 AM
I guess he'll have to go back to conventional genocide, rounding people up in vehicles, shooting them en masse and putting their bodies in mass graves.
 
2013-10-07 11:39:25 AM
Great that it worked out, bad that our President looks like a weak idiot to the global leaders. Personally I think its rediculous to have rules in war but, what do I know.

Asinine? Iis subby suggesting that Syria having it's chemical weapons dismantled is a bad thing?

Of course, Assad consulted with Miss Manners on the proper way to handle this situation,  "Dear Miss Manners:  I'm prone to having gas problems and a group of foreigners have invited themselves to stay at my home for a few days.  It can be pretty bad, sometimes people in the area, fall over and stop breathing. Every time I have one of these out burst, the neighbors are up in arms and giving me dirty looks.  It seems I can't hide them, and someone is always complaining to the authorities.  How do I explain the occasional, smelly "explosion"?

Dear Smelly in Syria,

Blame it on the dogs.

Props to Russia for saving us millions in hardware and hundreds of lives.

Hey... we didn't get to bomb brown(ish) people.  Among a certain, but sizable portion of the US population, a missed opportunity to bomb brown people is always a loss.

Profound. Anyway, I've heard reports that Syria has been shipping out most of its chemical weapons to Lebanon and Iraq, which means that Obama lost,  and the Bush Administration posthumously wins. There may actually be WMDs in Iraq now.

He is. Putin is firmly in control, we are seen as weak, the Red Line that was crossed doesn't mean a thing, and tens of thousands of people and counting are dead and will die. Dude stays in charge to do as he will. Putin is a man. Obama is a spoiled rich kid.

Sounds like you've got a teensy weensy man-crush on Putin. That's hot.

In all fairness, Obama really did not represent us well on this occasion.   He really screwed up this false flag.

good thing we have john kerry.

Yeah he came off looking like a tool.

Assad is the nice guy now, congratulations Obama.

They also have biological weapons.

But yeah, I see your irony. What everyone is secretly hoping, is that Assad just wins this war as soon as possible, killing as many as those AQ tools as possible.

To bad about the Free Syrian Army, that were apparently good guys.
 
2013-10-07 03:58:12 PM
Strike that, one party that really hopes Assad looses and AQ gets to run the place is Israel. But they have to be the only ones.

Well, according to conservatives, this just highlights his willingness to embrace a socialist agenda. Obama can't win. If he wins, conservatives lose - what, other than their minds, I have no idea, but they cannot allow it to happen.
