It's a tough task made harder because he cannot share specifics with skeptical voters.

Right, left and middle knows he is a puppet of the money/military power. What a completely disappointing presidency and both terms he began with so much political capital.

If it wasn't for Obama's vailed support of the Brotherhood, tying himself with Syria, he has turned this around to be Congresses' issue. Did he ask permission when he sent drone missles into Pakistan?
Instead of Congress, he should be talking to Israel, and just end this nightmare.

He bought time and played this like a genius.

LOLOL "the Brotherhood"!!! Ooo! The boogy man! Gimme a break, Alan. You guys don't even know who they are, where they are or what they do. Are you afraid? No one has said they are in Syria except the ones that pull it out of their....

I remember when the Liberals were the wusses and like every label they put on us, they were correctly labeling themselves.

We KNOW who the nazi 4th reich are. They just came out of the woodwork.

Yeah, I think we best look into our own backyard. No War,,, and stay out of Washington friends. I fear this is going to end badly. Think the politicians will notice them?

AND STILL THEY COME!! ** UPDATE ON BIKERS V ISLAM!! Authorities confirm that over 800,000 Bikers are now on the road! From LA they pour out, from New York they fill the roads, the Mid West, like a moving sea of humanity witnesses the Patriot Tsunami as they roll on towards Washington DC! And still they come, on Harleys on every brand known, the Biker Patriot Army rolls on towards DC in an unstoppable tidal wave of metal, fumes and leather to pay homage and defend the honour of all the people of EVERY nationality who were butchered by Islamists on 9/11. Not since the Revolutionary War have so many fighting men took to the road in America! Never have we seen the likes of such a vast citizen army mobilize and deploy in defence of all the free world holds dear and our Governments despise…FREEDOM AND LIBERTY! Britain First salutes our fellow Patriots in the USA and we ask all our followers to SHARE this post and let the free world see that WE the people can rise…so politicians…BEWARE!!

This is a major turning point in our history! Russia AGREED with the U.S. More war has been averted for the first time in many decades of MIC rule. The Pentagon must be scrambling to figure out plan B.
This was going to be a ten year war! We were supposed to stage damning evidence to invade Iran through a Syrian conflict. imho

When do we start moving Pentagon money towards the people? Retooling the CYA? The south tried to rise but they got sat back down. We still need to secede from the racist supremacists.

i find that CIVIL WAR is defined as war between factions or regions of THE SAME COUNTRY, a state of hostility or opposing groups of THE SAME COUNTRY.

Having said that, we (THE UNITED STATES) would become the aggressor in this region if we strike Syria. Therefore, clearly, war is not the answer for us.

putin played obama like a fish and obama is still flopping around trying to get off the hook. putin saved him from looking like the total fool he is when both houses would have told him no. the american people have spoken and we don't want anything to do with syria and the terrorists on both sides.

Silly twit, Obama played Putin, not the other way around. I suspect he's been negotiating with ol' pooty poot (to use Dumbya's term) the whole time.

And for those who say it's a "civil war" and we have no business getting involved, there's much truth to that in the general sense, but almost every country on Earth has agreed to ban chemical weapons in every instance and if that ban is not upheld in every case it becomes meaningless.

Robert K, the ban only applies to countries that have signed the treaty. It's not complicated, really.

I wish he had not used the FDR quote as it was FDR who had the intelligence and turned his back on the Nazi atrocities! We can not let Assad get away with this contemporary pogrom.

The big elephant in the room is that Obama didn't have the votes......because he didn't have a plan ....did you know that military men and women at Fort Hood had already received their deployment papers foe Syria? Obama tells you no boots on the ground blah blah blah....meanwhile thousands were receiving their orders to go to Syria.
