    No, he was the puss. And the world took notice. Specifically, Putin.

    It looks to me like Putin's response to Obama's threat of isolation is to unzip his fly and wave his dick at Obama. That should do a lot of good.

    Well, isn't that what happens when you walk around with your mouth open?

    Ok, so once again. Obama dispatched Hillary Clinton to the UN several times to secure a resolution for use of force, she failed. The UK backed out, he failed to secure congressional authorization, and 70% of Americans were against military action. How was he a puss on that one. Or do you mean he should have said, **** all that and started bombing Syria anyway.

    Obama just talks and talks and never seems to know what to say until the teleprompter tells him. Never make threats unless you intend to carry with them through.

    The same UN that has failed to act in the Ukraine....there is no reason to support the UN if they are not going to enforce international law, so yes, considering that Obama committed the US to a red line, and the UNs failure to enforce international law...we should have said f=that and went in.

    We don't disagree. But in my opinion, he had every intention of carrying his red line through. He was prevented as I've pointed out, unless you too are one that thinks he should have bull dozed through anyway, just to save face. He couldn't carry through! And I'm not making excuse for him, I'm delighted it worked out that way.

    Wow! Your probably serious, and a menace. The UK pulled their support, he couldn't get congressional authorization and 70% of his constituency said NO. "Going In" under those circumstances is insanity.
