    He shouldn't have let his mouth overload his ass. He shouldn't have believed so much of his own press. When Putin called his bluff in Syria, he should have manned up, vice running for cover.

    Iran cannot have a nuke, period. If Iran gets a nuke the Israelis may need to use one of their 200 own nukes to defend themselves, and how will that be in the interest of the United States? If Iran gets a nuke they can threaten to block the Suez canal, and how will that be the interest of anyone?
    you think we should have destabilized iran? Even though the entire Middle east is already destabilized because of Iraq an syria, you want to add more chaos to the region.

    I think he should have reminded the world that Russia signed a treaty in support of non-interference by anyone in Ukraine. And that the United States, Great Britain and many in the rest of the world are disappointed to see this so-obvious violation of that treaty by one of the very countries who signed it. He could have said that the United States and other signers will be weighing their options and hope to keep in constant and close contact with Russia as this moves forward toward the goal of understanding why they have chosen to take military action and what ramifications that action will have in the rest of the world.

    He ran and hid behind Congress when he looked like a punk during the Syria incident.

    Exposing himself as being a weakling and a coward was NOT the right approach.

    the situation in the ukraine and crimea is fluid, so it would be stupid to rush to any conclusions.

    You keep saying that he showed weakness, but you are not saying what action was thing that showed weakness.
