    re: Syria 'welcomes' proposal to hand over control of chemical weapons [W:122]

    So not going to War is somehow bad now??? Obama looks weak now because he did not bomb a country. This county is getting sick and twisted. Did any of the neo-cons ever think that it was a good cop/ bad cop situation? Putin does not have the military power to strike, but the US does. Wow it not about looking like a hero it the best possible solution to a bad situation.

    Oh President Obama won, he accomplished the mission even as the Cons fought him tooth and nail. Did it without a regionally destabilizing war and the loss of thousands of American troops and billions of dollars.

    All the ranting and wailing the Cons did from WWIII to 'war mongering' are just empty partisan rhetoric.

    I have no use for knee pads but could use a few wraps- my sides are splitting- laughing at the Con crap getting flushed....
    What were the "cons" wanting? Seems King Lib wanted to go to war to boost poll numbers. Got slapped down not by the "cons" but by the KGB.

    No not quite.....Obama and the French looks weak as they pushed a military solution and not a Political one like Ban Ki Moon had stated all along. In Which all this time they have known the Rebel/ Terrorists had used Chems.

    Also when you can explain what changed about knowing of the Chems from two years ago up til now, Ya might actually have some ground to stand on while Defending Your Lord and Master.

    So truly it was a major lame excuse from the get go.

    The fact is...if this gets chemical weapons off the table and unable to be used...everybody wins.

    That's the Con spin that makes me smile. President Obama, because a King would have just launched the missiles- to hell with poll numbers (you do realize he is in his second term), PRESIDENT Obama didn't say regime change or INVADE, he said the international community should send a strong message and he has a few dozen missiles that can do just that.

    Putin, who had is attack dogs huffing and puffing over 'defending Syria' , has blinked and ducked away from a world power confrontation over Syria.

    Assad rather than send the region into war has quickly agreed to the removal of the Chemical weapons.

    Cons who wailed and rended their garments over 'war mongering' and steadfastly refused to support the President now have to replace those torn frocks as President Obama has accomplished the mission without a missile attack.

    And a few right wingnuts who wailed over Sunni terrorists killing Christians can now wail away over ****te terrorists killing Christians....

    All in all President Obama got what he wanted without having to use military force.... sort of a Teddy Roosevelt moment....

    I quit reading at "Putin blinked".
    Obama has lost all credibility in the region. No one is scared of him any more.

    Heya Crue. Well that's cuz the left was trying to ignore those Dems in the House that were against it. Plus like always they tend to forget those important things like facts.

    Look at the USA Front Page NEWS HEADLINE......check some of the others. Obama backs off. Obama backtracks. Strike delayed Obama backs down.

    So no matter how much the left wants to spin it.....their pals in the MS Media have given credit to where credit is due.

    Btw here is some on that which the medicated cannot fathom. Uh Oh its Reuters. Guess they wont be able to complain about new sources.

    U.S. Senate may not vote on Syria this week.....

    The U.S. Senate may not vote this week on the authorization for the use of military force in Syria, congressional aides said on Tuesday after Syria's recent acceptance of a Russian proposal to give up its chemical weapons

    Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid on Monday abruptly backed off plans to schedule a test vote on Wednesday on a White House-backed resolution to authorize military strikes on Syria, but aides said then a vote was still likely later in the week.

    But both Democratic and Republican lawmakers have expressed doubts and enthusiastically backed the idea of allowing at least a short window of time for the world to react to Russia's plan to put Syria's chemical weapons under international control.

    Mitch McConnell, the top Republican in the Senate, said on Tuesday he would vote against the current resolution authorizing U.S. military force in Syria, a blow to chances of passing the measure.

    The three other top congressional leaders - Reid, House Speaker John Boehner, and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi - declared their support for military action last week.

    We are all working on the assumption that there will be no vote in either chamber in the near future, if at all," one senior Democratic House of Representatives aide said.

    White House chief of staff Denis McDonough told Democratic members of the House on Tuesday that diplomacy, rather than military action, is the priority on Syria, U.S. Representative Gene Green told Reuters as he left the briefing.

    Green, like many lawmakers, said he had been getting emails from constituents saying they wanted a diplomatic solution, and added, "That's what happening now."

    Another Democratic lawmaker, Representative James Moran, noted the deep opposition among both Democrats and Republicans in the House to the resolution.

    "I can't imagine we will have a House vote on this issue," Moran told reporters.....snip~

    By going all Dirty Harry on them, Obama boxed them into a corner between defending the man that sparked tingles up their collective legs, to their ideological opposition against American Military use of force for any reason....

    Ideology trumps man crushes.
