  • I haven't been a fan of Obama's handling of this, but perhaps erratic threats will actually work to get rid of chemical weapons without requiring a strike. Lets see if this is just a play by Assad/Russia for time.....

  • Obama played this like a Stradivarius. He and Kerry have peacefully settled a situation that could have dragged America into the maelstrom. Nice going Maestro!
