The Wages Of A Failed Syria Policy
Chemical Weapons Deal Helped Assad

    Since Kerry has now announced to selected senators that Obama’s (actually, Kerry’s) Syria policy, and since it was Kerry shooting off his ignorant mouth that got Obama the signal feature of the Syria policy, why is this man not resigning in disgrace? Why is Obama not firing him for shooting off his mouth (again!) and undermining whatever that is that passes for “policy” in Syria? Why isn’t the MSM running in depth analyses of this admission of failure day after day above the fold?

      Because he is The One!

        And Kerry is Number Two.

        Hey, Scott! I thought you were dead! Good to see you back here.

          I have been buried in the (semi-) real world, but hopefully life will be a bit more stable…

    How on Earth am I supposed to counter those who ascribe malicious motives to Obama and his entourage? “No, he really is that incompetent; an idiot-savant at getting elected, but absolutely hopeless at governing”?

      I think that works. After all, he was elected by the same people who lionize the Kardashians et al. Stupidity is definitely the best explanation. Maliciousness would require that Obama actually be the smartest man who ever lived, and the evidence for that proposition is scant indeed.

    It is awful hard to argue against the proposition that Assad’s was the most strategically effective use of chemical weapons in history.

    He took something the world thought a liability and turned it into a perpetual assurance of his regime’s continued existence.
