The US has no credibility and needs to get out of the way.
    Reference:

    "The Chinese historically never supported external intervention and particularly the use of force against a regime," says Bonnie Glaser, senior adviser for Asia at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

    China might also have been burned by the intervention in Libya. Neither Beijing nor Moscow vetoed the U.N. resolution that eventually led to a NATO-led military intervention, which led to the ouster of Moammar Gadhafi. China believed that action went beyond the resolution's mandate.

    China will continue to support Assad "until it becomes clear that the wind was blowing the other way," Glasser says."

    Good, more than likely Congress will vote down his authorization for force in Syria.
    It's time sensitive says Kerry, no rush, said Obama, congresscritters have to finish their break...since it's a matter of national security.

    What the hell.

    But...it can wait a couple of weeks.

    Gee, I'm glad everyone's clear here on how serious this is. According to the CIC.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

His "hidden agendas" such as millions of dollars of support to green companies and also "Fast and Furious" have made me sick. That Eric Holder still has a job sums up, at least in part, the problem with this President.
    we disagree on the GOP's behavior, but probably agree, to some extent at least, on the president's performance, and we probably disagree on whether the alternative, Romney, would've been better ... on that score, there is no question in my mind that Obama was by the far the better choice ... the problem is that we have one party, the Capitalist Party, that has two wings, both, in the end, prostituting themselves to serve the interests of corporations and the ultra-rich first and foremost ... that trickle down is more of a tinkle down, if you know what I mean ...

    Greetings, TGND.

    Can you imagine the fingerpointing that is probably going on right now in the administration? It boggles the mind! :
