Funny how those who claim that US intervention in the ME always ends badly conveniently forget about Kuwait. It can be done successfully, if done correctly.


Gulf I was done correctly? Why the reprise?

"If the The point of bombing is to prevent the use of weapons, why didn't Obama propose what Putin has right off the bat? Instead it's we have to bomb you now."

It was the threat of military intervention that gave the chem weapon surrender option viability. You don't surrender weapons because someone asks nicely.

Someone made a bet that Obama would start a new war
I will take that bet, there will be No war and no bombing

Assad is on the run, and will give up his chemical weapons to survive.

And we can credit Obama for playing the long game (and playing the right wingers as fools) that put Assad on the defense without a single shot fired.

Yup. Although they play themselves for fools far more effectively than anyone else does.

Delicious that the wingnuts on this thread admitted that Iraq was a mistake as part of their agenda to discredit Obama. Now they're realizing they shouldn't have - because if they hadn't, they still could have saved face if Assad double-crosses us.

Now they have nothing but the double embarrassment and double humiliation of being proven wrong, and admitting it, when they didn't have to.


They look like idiots.



Priceless!!!

Hahahahaha. Nope.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323595004579064600840673322.html


The statements on Monday came in a fast-developing diplomatic twist in the Syrian crisis, after Secretary of State John Kerry, asked in a London news conference whether there was anything Mr. Assad could do to stop U.S. strikes, said: "Sure, he could turn over every single bit of his chemical weapons to the international community in the next week...without delay and allow the full and total accounting for that, but he isn't about to do it and it can't be done, obviously."

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov of Russia, a country that is one of the strongest supporters of the Assad regime, quickly urged Syria to comply with Mr. Kerry's call, while United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon offered U.N. help in overseeing the destruction of chemical weapons within Syria.

"We are calling on the Syrian leadership not just to agree to put chemical-weapons stores under international control, but also to their subsequent destruction, as well as fully fledged accession to the Chemical Weapons Convention," Mr. Lavrov said.


Got it, dipsh#t? The Russians "quickly urged Syria to comply with Mr. Kerry's call".


YOU LOSE.

hedge will never get the obummr c*ck out of his mouth Werner.

So pathetic he thinks this to be a competition. He will never realize that obummer was falling right into the hands of the brotherhood AGAIN.
So pathetic was obummer that he went right for the BOMBS , just like good ol gwb...

If WE THE PEOPLE had not spoken out quickly on this, they would have NO DOUBT went right ahead and bombed the crap out of them. Of course,, NONE of this was thanks to guys like hedge who just swallow what ever spunk is shot their way by the "party".. Just walking talking spunk receptacles really.

Hahahahaha, King Ball Cupper knows aaaaalllll about having dicks in his mouth, obviously, from aaaaallllll the climber dick he's sucked.

Go to the Keep Tahoe Bold thread - he fondled enough scrotum in that one to qualify for gender reassignment.

His own bro's had to post up, and beg him to stop.

Probably the most humiliating episode in the history of ST.

Kuwait is now the 5th richest country in the world, directly because of US military intervention
By GDP? Per capita GDP? Not seeing it...


C'mon Hedge, both you and the good doctor are coming across as way too eager; you've got to look at the longer picture. Now, if Obama is able to turn this into a workable solution, more power to him!

Unfortunately, this looks to me like at least the second major incident in this saga of Kerry talking before thinking. I think Lavrov took his advantage of that to quickly throw in a monkey wrench. You see, Syria has about a 1000 tons of CW scattered around the country, and not all of it under regime control. Logistically the task is completely infeasible.

Russia knows this, and so does the U.S., but the man on the street doesn't. The Russians just gave Europe (and some Congresscritters) the excuse they need to bail on an attack. Now it's true that this also gives Obama an alternate exit, but it ends up making the U.S. look weak and indecisive.

Obummer should have NEVER made the RED LINE speech. He certainly shouldnt have then said the WORLD said that because that was blatantly SH#TE.

He should have never involved US at all, any way shape or form.. Its been his little ball game for some time now. And the coaching SUCKS.

Werner - Why are you encouraging such disgusting behavior on a climber's discussion forum? These type of threads generate nothing but hate, they bump the climbing threads down. The hate infects the climbing threads as well.

Joe - Why are you playing down to Ron's level? If you would like to present your side of the debate more effectively, ignore him.

C'mon, guys. You must have a ton of climbing stories. I couldn't hold a candle to them, I know you are having a chuckle, but it's coming at the expense of dragging the whole place down.

"Now it's true that this also gives Obama an alternate exit, but it ends up making the U.S. look weak and indecisive."


By getting the Russians and Syrians to do what Obama wants without firing a shot?

Actually it ends up making both the Russians and Syrians look cowed by the threat of US military force.

Like I said, if Obama and Kerry can actually pull this off, there's no way they could have played it better.

Hahahaha, try educating yourself, little boy. Kerry proposed the idea and the Russians went along with it.

And you had to eat sh#t in public once again - as always.

But then , that's really what you're here for, isn't it?
