    Obama team thought Iran would not tolerate Bashar Assad's use of WMDs [W:19]

    Iran is enduring economic sanctions designed to slow the country's nuclear weapons program, but President Obama's team thought the regime might abandon dictator Bashar Assad over his use of chemical weapons in Syria's civil war.

    Samantha Power, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, hoped that a team of UN investigators — many of whom, presumably, have a longstanding relationship with Iranian leaders -- could write a report that would convince Iran to abandon its ally at the behest of the United States
    .

    That's an amazingly new level of collectively naive stupidity. Stunningly so.

    I really hope the administration isn't this naive, because this is embarrassing

    And you wonder why Obama cant get any national or international support when you have this much ignorance in the administration.

    It makes sense that the Iranian regime would oppose the use of WMDs, as they claim to have a religious edict against such and they would want to show their resolve/commitment in not allowing such things. Now we know, that religious edict is not worth crap.

    NO, we don't, not so fast Eco. Again and still it is FAR from confirmed that president Assad used chemical weapons against his own people. And as pointed out on this board and elsewhere every single day, you are in a very tiny minority if you believe he did. So it makes complete sense that Iran has the position that it does. Why would they condemn something that did not happen. Thankfully your not a diplomatic negotiator.

    Taking a head-in-sand position is hardly respectable. The US president has presented an outline of the evidence in his possession, which includes recordings of Assad officers and video of preparation, deployment and after action investigation by the Assad regime.

    Miss Power is in a 180* position from her historical stance. Clearly she is appeasing her boss.

    Nothing that is happening with regard to Syria is respectable, funny you use that word. Almost nobody believes president Obama. Btw, did you hear/see the Syrian/American woman's passionate appeal to senator John McCain at his town hall meeting?

    I would care about the passionate ramblings of a random X/American only slightly more than that of the average hysterical fundie posting on this website.

    Comparisons cannot be avoided between dumb and dumber.

    No, I'm an individual whose foreign policy positions are not determined by random individual people. Anyone whose position is determined by such is a moron.
