    Who knows if Gates is being truthful or not. You have no criticism of him for coming out with this book and disclosing his feelings while Obama is still in the White House? What about the potential risk to troops there. And why wasn't Gates singing while this was going on, when something might have been done about it?

    Oh, you think he's a puss for not attacking another sovereign nation that hadn't attacked us first? I think Bush was a puss for attacking a sovereign nation that hadn't attacked us. More like something a punk would do.

    Of course any criticism of Obama must be a lie...LOL!!!

    The book was ready to hit the streets before the election and Gates held it.

    What about the potential risk to troops there.
    We're pulling out. Remember? Besides, I doubt Gates' book will make the enemy hate us more.

    And why wasn't Gates singing while this was going on, when something might have been done about it?
    Because of those little things called, loyalty, duty and honor.

    No. He LOOKS like a puss, because he made a threat, then backed off; made another threat, then back off of that one; then made another threat, and backed off that one, too.

    He knew he wasn't going to hold Syria to any deadline and because of that he should have never made the threat.

    A punk talks a buncha bull**** and is afraid to back it up.

    About 30 months ago the opportunity existed for a safe, cheap strategic victory in Syria with important and positive consequences. All we had to do was help people who begged to be our friends. BHO flinched and that opportunity is now gone.

    He wasn't ALLOWED to do anything in Syria. He was first stopped by Russia and China at the UN, then he lost the support of the British and 70% of Americans were steadfastly against it. So, I ask you again, what should/could he have done, been a belligerent?

    He could have kept his stupid ass mouth shut, because he KNEW he wasn't going to do anything, to begin with.

    Helped them how? It is not our duty or responsibility to be engaging in the overthrow of other countries governments, much as we have so often in the past including as recent as Libya and the abuse of the UN resolution there. You must understand, Russia and China are both quite fed up with US wars of aggression, and they are pushing back, BIG TIME. Also, see post 36

    can't disagree, it wasn't the US shining moment in the region.
    Then again we have had a lot of sullied moments/times there.

    Obama stumbled into the correct course of non-action (what could we do, we did try to arm the FSA, but - diversion problems at minimum)
    As the saying goes, even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and then.
