That was answered in 6th grade science class.

Of course, some kids don't pay attention.

Default In the same speech.. Asad is incapable of striking back at the US and on the other he is an imminent threat.

Obama endorsed preemptive strikes..what ???????? Won't sit well with the anti-bush crowd and global 'allies'. What a reversal!!!

Obama claims syria military structure can't retaliate in a meaningful way...oops, except by proxy from Iran who has a mil;itary structure, or hundreds of other radical groups, by a couple of guys running a plane into skyscraper. Hey O, Syria doesn't need a military structure to strike back.

Then O says we will take our time to strike syria... that gives syria a green light to stike us in the face of a threatened US strike. O declared war on syria! Syria now has to defend itself.

O's spokesman is claiming O has been working on the diplomatic offer with Putin since before time.

The excuse the US in in imminent danger from Asad was pure fantasy slippery slope. On one hand Asad is incapable of striking back at the US and on the other he is an imminent threat.
Oops poor editing on that speech!

If that were the case we are in imminent danger from a dozen middle east countries, N Korea, African countries, Mexico, China and other friends. Obama was pathetic! He is now a cartoonish caricature of what the world envisions to be a US president.

Well, let us know when they build your library. We'll be sure to be there for the ribbon cutting.

I didn't get to hear the speech until later last night. But I heard Kerry yesterday telling the House that Reid had put off a vote in Senate but the administration did not want them to. Then later Obama saying he asked for both to put off the vote. More confusion it seems.

This is because Obama makes up stuff as he goes along. The TPOTUS can only handle so much as it starts to overheat. An unplugged Obama is not a good thing.

I has nothing to do with hate and everything to do with government taking away basic freedoms, taxing us to deàth and indiscriminately killing for the sake of personal agendas and ego and spending trillions of dollars we cant pay back for the sake of votes. Bush did a lot of things I didn't like but Obama make Bush look like the one who should have gotten the noble peace prize. When 320,000 people quit looking for work, the unemployment rate drops and the President declared his economic policy is working there's a HUGE problem.

Hate no, extremely pissed yes

Because Obama himself was all over the place and this Russian proposal caught them all by surprise.
They had no choice but to take their finger off the trigger and had to backtrack.
Now it was all our idea.
