    At least that President was able to make decisions when they needed to be made.

    LOL....a fool who makes dumb decisions drags everybody else down with them. The "deciders" decisions led to hundreds of thousands of lost lives, Billions of dollars spent and drove our country to the brink of economic and moral bankruptcy. Sorry....but just because someone talks tough, dons a cowboy hat and labels themselves the "war President" and "The decider" doesn't make them intelligent.
    BTW...was that what he was doing for 12 minutes while our country was under attack...sitting on his ass in a grade school classroom reading "My pet goat"....oh yeah...."Decidin".

    I'm pretty sure the world has been laughing at the USofA since long before Obama took office.

    We've been on a downward spiral for decades.

    For someone who thinks that the capital of the third world (Los Angeles) is a world class city, do I have to say any more ?

He looks for support from NATO and gets the cold shoulder so he looks to the UK and they say , not interested. Obama then rattles his saber and says he can and will do it alone and Kerry comes along and gives the impression the missiles are just about on the way. Then Obama says never mind, I think I'll take this to congress when they get back from recess, no worry, no hurry. Now the pro gov forces in Syria are dancing in the streets and Iran is ramping up its nuke program and laughing at America, nice work Obama.
    I don't think any red line has been crossed. The USA proof that Assad used gas is zilch. There is lots of proof that it was the rebels that used the gas. The war hawks and military/industrial/corporate complex and big energy will push and push Congress and Obama to get their war, but perhaps Obama feels sumpin' slippin', like being misled by his trusted intelligence services. The rebels have big budgets from their Saudi sponsors.

China is the only country in the world right now that would have even a long shot of hanging with us in a war. The rest of them, despite the posturing and bloviation, know that we would smoke them in a hot minute if we wanted to. There's no doubt in anyone's mind that we have the most technologically advanced and well trained military in the world. On the other hand, most of you on this thread love to volunteer guys like me to go over show these lowly Middle East countries who's boss. If you are so worried about it, strap some boots on and pick up a rifle. If not, shut up and color. Let the grown ups worry about the wars. Go worry about staying employed, the next local election, etc. There are far more important things facing our country right now that what Syria or any other dirt poor Arab nation thinks of us.
    Very naive post. If America is perceived as weak, the world's predators begin to probe, jabs to see how far they can go, how much they can get away with, stuff that never makes the radar of a Liberal MSM, events that happen entirely in foreign countries. Notice how much more Russia is flexing it's muscles since Obama betrayed Poland with the withdrawal of the promised missile defense.

    Others, internally, begin to betray a disrespected Obama and their country by leaks.

    Obama is the wrong person in the wrong place and the consequences are enormous for the United States.

    In other arenas, Americans don't care what the world thinks, but when it comes to fear and disrespect, that is vital.

    He only said that he didn't NEED congress's approval. He didn't say, as far as I know, that he would attack without approval or that he wouldn't attempt to get approval.

    LOL....when people talk about world class cities, they generally talk about NYC, Los Angeles, Paris, London.....can't remember the last time Fullerton or Newport Beach were mentioned. You obviously don't get out much.

    Nothing makes a leader look weaker than when people on discussion forums have to parse words and seek hidden meanings and different interpretations on that leader's behalf. It gives the impression that he is so weak he can't even clearly state what he means.

    I'm not parsing words. There's a difference between "will" and "I could". It's not my fault some people can't understand english very well.
