Funny, But Not

Just a few thoughts on the Syrian conflict…

To begin with, our Commander-in-Chief was willing to go it alone in Syria with the French covering our back. Really? That’s almost a joke. Comical in so many ways.

Then our esteemed leader did a 180 when he realized that he really didn’t want to go to war, didn’t mean to draw any red lines and went to ask Congress’ permission to shoot off a few rockets. Mind you, I am not at all for going anywhere near Syria. But it’s ‘funny’ to watch him draw lines and back off those lines as soon as he realizes that they are going to be crossed. Did he not think that Syria wouldn’t gas their own people? Was he thinking at all when he opened his mouth? You’ve got to wonder.

Let us not forget that the might of the United States must be feared… President Obama warned Iran that just because he backed off of Syria doesn’t mean that he isn’t serious about the Iranian nuke program. That’s right, he means it. And he might wag his finger at you – and “make it clear” that nuclear bombs are unacceptable… he means it… really.

And the icing on the cake. In response to Russia’s Vladimir Putin’s op-ed in the New York Times, Obama suggested that “I don’t think that Mr. Putin has the same values that we do…”

All I can say is: You think?!

No, maybe you don’t.
