"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
In fairness, Obama had his ducks in a row, had already locked and loaded and was ready to pull the trigger late last week, then one by one, some key partners and considerable opposition from us at home, e-mails, phone calls and a lot of bitching backed his skinny ass up!!!! There was NO deliberation or caution, he's doing what he should have done a long time ago. Before he ever asked the UN for permission to use military force in Syria, he should have checked with you and me to see how we felt about it, if he saw support from us, he should then have gone to congress and sought approval, had he secured that there, he should THEN have presented his case, his evidence at the UN, and then had it merit he would have secured authorisation there and he would be bombing his little ass off, to the content off all the war mongers we have both here and everywhere else. But see, he didn't do that. So STOP............... Giving him a pass. He looks like and quite is an idiot on this!
There's no evidence Obama was "locked and loaded." He's cautiously and deliberately moved forward, gathered intelligence and tried to garner support, both from other countries and more importantly Congress, which is appropriate. I call that statesmanship. I call what Bush did stupidity.
The rebels are not our friends and we should not help them..
