SYRIA: President’s head is much above water

Most everyone hates war, and so far the polls reflect that. But let’s be perfectly clear: President Obama did what a previous president refused to do regarding Syria and that was to call himself “the decider” while making a unilateral decision based on false and misleading evidence to take us to war without the approval of Congress at a cost of $1 trillion.

Let’s also be clear that 189 nations signed on to the 1925 Geneva Accord banning the use of chemical weapons. The United States was one of those signatories.

The “red line in the sand” is now being used as a straw man argument because the truth to some is unbearable when it come to this president.

So those who would suggest that Obama is “in over his head” when it comes to foreign policy are either ill-informed or lack the intellect to mount an argument based on facts and the understanding of what “in over his head” means when compared to the Iraq war in 2003.
