Was U.S. Outfoxed On Syria?

WASHINGTON (AP) — Lawmakers assessing the agreement on Syria’s chemical weapons argued Sunday about whether President Barack Obama was outfoxed by the Russians and had lost leverage in trying to end......

Obama said "This is our red line."

Later, he said "I never said there was a red line."

Meanwhile, the American people found themselves reading a New York Times Op-Ed from former KGB agent and current Russian President, Vladimir Putin and wishing he was our President, instead of Obozo.

Putin handled the situation like a boss.

Barry the Bumbler came off like he really is-a fourth rate amateur who is out of his depth and in over his head in anything not dealing with inner city welfare programs.

Why is our President such a moronic, lazy, disinterested, weak, pathetic, ineffectual wimp?

"Was US outfoxed on Syria"?

Of course not! This was yet another brilliant ploy by our masterful Chief Executive to show his command of our glorious leadership in international affairs, by forcing the reluctant Putin and Assad to the bargaining table without firing a shot!

And if you buy that, I own a bridge in Brooklyn I can let you have for a song.

I saw it this way: Obama said what was going to happen. Nothing happened. Putin said what was going to happen. It happened.

NY POST:

"WASHINGTON — Here we go again.

President Obama drew another “red line” Sunday, now on Iranian nukes — and insisted that this time, he really means it, despite infamously wavering on his red-line pledge about Syria using chemical weapons. “My suspicion is that the Iranians recognize they shouldn’t draw a lesson that we haven’t struck [Syria] to think we won’t strike Iran,” Obama said in an interview aired on ABC’s “This Week.”

Obama stressed that he wouldn't just talk tough but act tough when it comes to nuclear weapons."

See what happens when elect a PU**sy for President. Now he has to prove his manhood by threatening military action all the time.

NOW everybody knows this is BS.

Our country has been humiliated internationally and the loss of our prestige caused by Obama, Kerry, and Clinton will haunt us until we get a President and Congress who will stand up to Russian and Muslim conspiracies designed to weaken our country.

Don’t be silly, daWraith. Refugees, terrorists, sarin, ... Syria has a LOT to export. Obama’s effort to topple Assad would have put the Muslim Brotherhood in power and Syria would have been another new Middle Eastern government in the export business, too. I just can’t understand why those right-wing extremist Rethuglicans would deny the Muslim Brotherhood their right to free trade. Rethuglicans are just haters, I guess.

At least Iran and Iraq made some sense in that they are big oil producers.

Iraq is now the number 5 oil exporter to the USA.

Syria has nothing but poverty to export.

Our sheeple blindly follow the pied piper special interest group bozos leading us as they position us for yet another meaningless war in the craphole that is the Middle East, all the while making sure middle class grandchildren will be paying for it.

Why are we involved there? We don't even need their oil any longer. We need to pull out, and stop sending the billions of dollars of foreign aid to every country in that region.

If somebody from there attacks us, bomb them to oblivion and let them build their own country back up. End of story.

Obama has been builing up to invading Syria for over a year. Little Kingdoms like Bahrain where the Navy Fleet flag is now sitting have been bustling with US military buildup for a long time. The Chem weapon thing was just to be the kickoff incident. We can thank the Brits for listening to their people, who are not mesmerized by Obama's charm for demanding no involvement in Obama's latest war. If not for the Brits, and so publicly, opting out, Obama was going to send in the troops. His top General said as much just six weeks before the "incident". There is no diplomacy to it, Obama was going to war, without Congress, and then the Brits, with Parliament opted out. That the US people don't want more war never stops Obama, he is living out his Islamic dream and you are paying for it. Do you understand sequester now? Even with it in effect, Obama has spent $20 billion on Libya, Egypt and the build up of an invasion force. You can eat dirt, infidel.

Russians Moving ‘Carrier Killer’ Cruiser to Pac Fleet AO

by CHRISTIAN on MARCH 28, 2011 Defensetech . com

" Not sure why, but for those of you who track foreign military moves, it seems that the Russian navy is planning to move one of its most modern and powerful guided missile cruisers out of the Northern fleet operations area and into the more dynamic — and contested — Pacific fleet AO.

The Russian missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov may reinforce Russia’s Pacific Fleet in 2013 after repairs, a high-placed official of the Russian Navy said on Sunday.

The Ustinov is the second of four Slava class guided missile cruisersand is now stationed in Severomorsk in Murmansk. It’s unclear why the Russians want to move the Ustinov to warmer Pacific climes, but if the armaments on this ship are any indication, it’s going to be a major influence on the sea lanes — that is if the Russian government has enough cash to fill ‘er up and let her leave Vladivostok."

DAILY CALLER:

Russian President Vladimir Putin has accepted Iran’s invitation to visit Tehran to work out a strategy for the Islamic regime’s nuclear program, Fars News Agency reported Saturday. The West believes the Iranian program is a front for developing nuclear weapons.

Putin, seen by Iran’s clerical establishment as a strong opponent to America and the West — especially after HIS SUCCESSFUL POLITICAL PLAY ON AVERTING A U.S. MISSILE STRIKE ON SYRIA — was approached by Iran TO PROTECT THE ISLAMIC REGIME in the face of continued pressure by the West over its illicit nuclear program. Russia and the U.S. reached agreement Saturday to take control of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s chemical weapons arsenal by mid-2014.

Who's your Daddy NOW, Barry? IRAN got themselves a big, badass body guard.

Maybe everybody in the Mideast is TIRED of the over 4,350 people KILLED by Barry's little DRONE WAR and the collateral damage it has caused.

I’m just sad we didn't get to see the “unbelievably small” effort Secrebarely of State Heinz-Kerry originally suggested. Because I can believe in some extraordinarily small efforts from this failed administration. Take Benghazi, for instance. Could there have been a smaller effort there? Apparently so.

And if Putin hadn’t stepped in to save the Redliner in Chief’s red face, we’d have seen how small America’s response can be. Maybe next time. Wonder how we’ll know? I’m sure there will be a press conference or two. With more America-embarrassing words... sigh...

Yeah, really sounds like the US got owned by Russia. "The deal announced Saturday in Geneva by U.S. and Russian diplomats sets an ambitious timetable for elimination of Syria's chemical weapons by mid-2014, with rapid deadlines including complete inventory of its chemical arsenal within a week and immediate access by international inspectors to chemical weapons sites.

If Russia had their way, we would still be status quo. I love the way the far right extremists and their media are spinning Syria. Bottom line, no troops on the ground and Syria weapons will be gone. Under a far right extremist Admin, this would be seen as a historic breakthrough by the NR and its hair on fire readers.

Another pathetic example of Little Squat-O surrendering to Big Cheif Commie Putin. Meanwhile the appointed president Kerry making a fool of himself with "President" Putin teeling us the communists are "committed" to a peaceful resolution.... he actually believes the communists? What a joke.

I should say Barry is try to act like the Macho Man threatening military action in IRAN as well.

"Threaten" as we now know means jack Shiite coming from the Community Organizer turned Commander in Chief of the world's most powerful military. Scary thought if you think about it.

A guy that never managed a lemonade stand or started a company is threatening WWIII on the world stage??

Outfoxed is putting it mildly. Barry Benghazi got OWNED by Putin, he is now Putin's manservant, his little biache!

Kerry looks like a friggen dork still threatening military action in Syria. And Barry da Brainless was trying to act like the Macho Man again threatening SYRIA.

They all KNOW Barry drew a line in sand and then BLINKED. You only get one chance to pull that trick on the world stage and he BLEW IT.

When everybody knows you are coming, there is NO such thing as a "surprise" attack. Now this:

Syria has moved 20 trucks worth of equipment and material used for the manufacturing of chemical weapons into neighboring Iraq, the Lebanese daily Al-Mustaqbal reported on Sunday.

The government in Baghdad has denied allegations that it is helping the Syrian government conceal chemical stockpiles."

So wanna bet, just like Iraq 12 years ago, the INSPECTORS are NOT GOING TO FIND MUCH EVIDENCE of WMD's!!! Sound Familiar???
