U.S. President Barack Obama resisted pressure on Friday to abandon plans for air strikes against Syria and enlisted the support of 10 fellow leaders for a "strong" response to a chemical weapons attack.
Obama refused to blink after Russian President Vladimir Putin led a campaign to talk him out of military intervention at a two-day summit of the Group of Twenty developed and developing economies in St. Petersburg.
He persuaded nine other G20 nations plus Spain to join the United States in signing a statement calling for a strong international response, although it fell short of supporting military strikes, underscoring the deep disagreements that dominated the summit.

Not to mention taking the media spotlight off all his other (domestic) problems. Wag the dog comes to mind.
The king does whatever he wants! Get the Mooch her lobster dinner!
The boy is an idiot.

Let the Muslims sort it out.
following Egypt's example, Americans should be demanding this.
He did find some time to do some community organizing/activism of the LGBT’s after all. There was a blurb on the world tab on ABC tonight; before that I couldn’t find a mainstream source, just bloggers.
Good God, what an absolute load of horseshit from Reuters. Sorry kids, the gig is up.

You’ll note how much more important the queer agenda is to ABC, than Obama bringing us to the brink of WW3.
Still looks bad—I fear the worst. Someone needs to shake some sence into Obama.
Obama refused to blink .... LOL! Nice Reuters .... nice!
You can tell he’s being told what to do by comparing his off the cuff remarks to his prepared teleprompter speeches.
None agreed to help Zero with military action.
They aren’t stupid. But bam-bam and Pravda USSA will hail this as a Grand Coalition.
obama didn’t blink.....Wow! What a man!
Amen! Good catch.
If hussein Obama gets us in a war when the people and congress are against it, the dems will not be holding many more seats in congress after the next election. I believe Obama would soon be removed from office too.
