Because we're broke maybe?
Our own problems at home?
Not our problem?
Over a 100,000 have already died and we never stepped in?
Because it can escalate beyond what is intended?
Because we are not bombing to resolve anything?

That's just a brilliant amount of delusion you have there. Fantastic, that line belongs on Arrested Development or something.

They were lost. Kerry made a rhetorical, wishful comment, Russia swooped in and proposed a novel solution to the Obama cruise missile plan, one the rest of the world and probably the American Public can get behind. Obama saved a *little* face but still appears quite ineffectual, misguided, and indecisive.

This is all very far from an Obama success.

I'm just glad it now seems extremely unlikely we'll pursue a military strike. Such an action would be HUGELY unpopular internationally and in this country as well.

I agree, he should have ended all wars on Jan 20, 2009. Okay maybe Jan 21, 2009, let's give him at least a day.

Up until now they've been able to screw up state after state like locusts, now they have nowhere to fly to.

Suck it up *******s, this is what you wanted.
