    The Iranians, Hezbollah, AQ, The Russians...plenty of bad guys around the world who are willing to take advantage our lack of resolve.

    The appearance of a lack of resolve encouraged AQ to attack us on 9/11. Doing nothing has never worked.

    AQ is fighting against Assad! How does it look weak to not attack a country that hasn't attacked us? Even rummy (you know, your hero from the previous admin.) says Obama has no case for a war with Syria.

    It looks weak to not carry through with a threat. Do you have kids?

    You advocate people following through with stupid threats. Here's the thing. Maybe Americans don't want Obama to follow through with a stupid threat. That's what the polls say. That's what congressmen are saying as their phones are blowing up with Americans telling them no to military action in Syria. All but the warmongers that is.

    Which screams to the bad guys, that the American people don't have any resolve, further encouraging the enemy to test the boundries, even more.

    I agree with you. However by now the world is well aware of the type idiot we elected as President. His mouth has painted our country into a corner that even if we had a competent state department to explain our positions to the world, there is no good way out. He attacks now, he's saving face, not doing the right thing even if it might be the right thing. And that's just how the world will see it and play it. Because of him, we lose from all angles on this. Best, and it's lousy, to just walk away and wait around for a competent president in three years.

    No, it screams to the fact that Obama often promises things that he will not deliver. Did Obama not promise to close GITMO, end the "Bush" tax rates and to bring those responsible for Benghazi to justice? Obama will do what Obama can get others to do for him - you must have patience, Grasshopper - plenty of patience.

    There's going to be a huge price to pay because of Obama's indecision.
