Obama et al are nothing but global bullies. The Big Superpower hitting a small country like Syria. Obama should be ashamed!!! Is it possible that the US can be lead by such a bunch of flip-flopping emptyheaded war mongrels? Is this possible in this day and age? They must surely be suffering from fluoride poisoning. Test the water in the WH! Or maybe Monsanto is to blame ... all the GMO infested food they consume, or maybe big pharma sent them the wrong flu shots??? Disastrous ... maybe the reason for all this lameduck behavior?? One thing is sure, something has turned your leaders into complete nut cases...

Iraq had inspectors crawling all over the place for 10 years - when they couldn't find anything Iraq was accused of "hiding things", was embargoed, and bombed.

If Syria signs this deal with the UN it will be an excuse for a prolonged siege, embargoes, and airstrikes whenever they want. Let them bomb for 3-4 days and be done with it. Don't let the UN in - it will be an excuse for 10-15 years of bombings, long after the revolt has been put down.

Not sure having involving more "INTERNATIONAL& quot; things in Syria's internal affairs is such a good idea.

This whole (latest, current) mess started because they let the UN in - UN inspectors go into countries to find excuses for the Globalists to impose embargoes and drop bombs - no other reason. Remember Iraq (1992-2002) before the invasion?

It crazy they are trying to spin this as a victory for Obama when the deal was brokered by Russia.

The US is not the voice of the world period.

Im not too happy with obomers speech, whoever wrote his speech?

When millions of Syrians are displaced and are refugees in neighboring countries, when rebels loot people and fight against the government, when hundreds of Syrians including children are gassed to death, and millions of kids lose the opportunity to go to school... It is time to fix Syria, even by using force.

Im not sure if reptilian US can be trusted at this point .
The reptilian US just lobby germany to sign up for this war .
So, what is the intention of US now ?


Joe Lloyd 11.09.2013 01:48

Isn't it about time Israel was sorted out? Producing nukes illegally, still creating chemical weapons and using the west to take out anyone it disagrees with? Supposed to be a westernised country ( although I'm not sure that's a compliment anymore)

Now that Obama is getting Syria to sign on to the Chemical Weapons convention, maybe he can get the US to do something about the "hollow point bullets" convention. Since Obama has been president, police officers in the US have killed over 2000 people using hollow point bullets. That is more than were allegedly killed in Syria by chemical weapons. It would be better for Obama to do something about people being killed by police officers or FBI by hollow point bullets (as Todashev was in Florida when he wouldn't sign a confession fast enough) in the US than to bomb Syria with depleted uranium.

Well done all, but this job is not over, Israel needs to be evaluated, it's creating a uneven position in the region. Lets face it, Obama may be hard with his enemies, but it's pointless if you can't be hard with your friends. His presidency in tatters...absolutely , useless he can deal with Israel (probably not).
