Well, Secretary of State John Kerry’s masterstroke, his “deal” to have Russia “help” Syria remove its chemical weapons, seems to be headed toward its inevitable failure.
I just can’t believe Putin and Assad turned out to be untrustworthy. I mean, who would have guessed they were playing power politics while we were playing, I don’t know, Stratego. Anyway, this is an outrage. I think we should protest this at the UN and get a restraining order from Judge Judy.
Or maybe we should have known since YOU DON’T AGREE TO LET THE LION PRIDE HELP THE WILDEBEAST HERD FIND A WATERING HOLE.
Responding to reports of renewed gas use on civilians, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki indicated that yes, Syria may have gotten back into illegal warfare business.

Uh oh. Crossed the Obama red line again.Actually, THEY’RE PLAYING HOPSCOTCH ON TOP OF IT.

What’s he going to do? Nothing. What can he do? Bomb and weaken Assad, and then once the rebels get their hands on those weapons they’ll use them on Assad’s Alawites or somebody else. Or us.
Maybe Obama can just keep quiet this time, and at least avoid making us look like idiots.
