David Cameron sounds pretty excited about it too. Did Waffles bumble his way into a solution to the crisis? Heres the presumptive Democratic nominee creating a little rhetorical space for her party to declare victory and walk away:
If the regime immediately surrendered its stockpiles to international control, as was suggested by Secretary [John] Kerry and the Russians, that would be an important step, Clinton said. But this cannot be another excuse for delay or obstruction. Russia has to support the international communitys efforts sincerely, or be held to account.
Clinton also defended Obamas push for strikes as instrumental in making such a political settlement possible.
It is very important to note that this discussion that has taken hold today, about potential international control over Syrias stockpiles, only could take place in the context of a credible military threat by the United States to keep pressure on the Syrian government as well as those supporting Syria, like Russia, she said.
GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, chair of the House Intel Committee and devout hawk, made the same point earlier. Apparently, if not for Obamas heroic half-hearted saber-rattling, Assad would be free to flaunt his chemical weapons openly instead of pretending to turn them over while continuing to slaughter Sunnis en masse. Theres your Hillary 2016 foreign-policy bumper sticker.
This isnt the only help shes given to the White House on the big Syria push either; she called Schumer and Mark Pryor this past weekend to try to sell them on voting yes. Pryor, as far as I know, is still a firm no today on attacking. Meanwhile, in Syria:

The Way Out?
Obama: 'Absolutely' on Hold if Syria Abandons Chemical Weapons...
Opens door to 'diplomatic track'...
Hasn't decided on strike without Congress...
'I understand' American people aren't with me...
Michelle Says 'No'...
Syria 'welcomes' Russia proposal...
PUTIN TO THE RESCUE!
Moo.cow don’t bother me...moo cow don’tbother me... I’m gonna got for no war please!
This is BS. Obama’s objective from day one was not to have the regime turn over chemical weapons. He said it was to punish Syria for crossing the red line and using them. He never mentioned diplomacy.
Hillary holds no office. WTF is she doing adding her two cents to this debacle.
She is goona run for President ....!!!!!
Down the road a few weeks or months, the rebels let some sarin gas loose in Damascus again...
Was it the rebels? Or did Assad hold back a little so he could use it and blame the rebels?
Meanwhile, obama’s not fooling anybody. He looks as he is, bumbling, sophomoric, a sorcerer’s apprentice.
Samantha Power and Susan Rice, both, I think , did claim that the admin has exhausted all diplomatic efforts. which was BS on its face. but especially today when JFKerry stumbled into a diplomatic solution which Assad agreed to right off.
Wouldn’t asking Assad to turn over his chemical weapons be one of the first diplomatic solutions that Kerry, Powers and or Rice would’ve tried if they really tried to diplomatically address Assads alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria?
The people in DC, Obama and others, think we are all a bunch of idiots! he things they say have zero credibility. I wouldn’t believe them if they said the sun was gonna rise tomorrow morning.
I posted it. Looks like Hillary cleaned herself up a bit, got rid of that straggly hair, lol.
And if a Repub were Prez, Hitlery, and other libs, would be calling the threat a potential "disruption of the peace process". Anyone remember those words from the Left and the media when Nixon, Reagan and the Bush's were Presidents?
They could move the stockpiles back to Iraq.
This is exactly what I was thinking today, looking at the headlines. The Bamster and Lurch are going to declare a diplomatic victory and masterpiece. Nothing like getting out in front of a parade going by, smiling and waving, and saying you are the leader of the parade.
She stepped on a duck.
Could be a Classic.
They keep saying Assad has killed 100,000 people. Isn’t the truth that 100,000 have died in the civil war? Some of those were Assad’s troops and some of them were Christians killed by the rebels.
And she will probably win.
Yeah, she's needed a shower for quite some time. Just looking at her, you could almost smell the BO and yeast.
Says the former Secretary of State that gave her russian counterpart a “reset” button that actually said “flush”(or whatever)
Half the people in this country ARE idiots. He only needs a little less than half. The media will provide the rest through phony polls.
[Could be a Classic.]
Thanks Ernest! Need to ping GrampaDave, he likes the graphics.
Remember the days of the ‘crusty black pantsuit’?? hehehe
“only the threat of credible military force” could get this done she says...
She means that “unbelievably small strike” Kerry threatened that would leave Assad still eating his Cheerios.
That is an earth-shaking threat that is.
How sad for them because as we know this was all to be a show for Iran. lol.
We dislike Iran so much, we were going to whack Syria. Just for show, though, a tiny, little bitty whack. like putting the ‘kick me’ sign on Syria’s back and pointing and laughing at their best friend across the hall as he is powerless to help. Just to show we could.
You are correct!
So now what are we going to do about Rebel Chemical Weapons? Are we going to bomb them now instead?
It seems like just yesterday but it’s been twenty years since Hillary was loosed on the country, like a weasel gaining entry into a chickenhouse.
Destroying people in the travel office, terrorizing WH staff, patronizing military attaches and SS ... stealing FBI files and studying them upstairs in bed. The little minx!
But I’m pretty sure we won’t survive the next three years, so let’s not worry too much about her.
I remember those little actions.
What difference ....
Oh yeah. "PIAPS"..."old crusty".
“...or be held to account.”
Love the way liberals toss around that phrase. Then, when it’s actually time to hold one to account, we get. “homina, homina, homina...”
I was worried Putin would “rescue” the Syrians by “taking” the known chemical weapons and putting Russian Marines and soldiers ON the known Syrian locations and bases. And, of course, no one knows where the rebel/AQ chemical weapons are hidden, and where the Syrian Army chemical weapons are hidden now.
Once the Russians were in place, THEN any attack against the chemical bases WOULD BE an attack on the Russians and Putin would have “won” the round, and protected Syrian, AND shown who the other Arabs and Muslims could “trust” to protect them ....
He would also have protected HIS interests in preventing the gas and oil pipelines form going through Syria, and would have set Russian up as the newer trusted power in the region.
But it also shows Europe who is actually in charge of THEIR gas lines going into Germany, Poland, France, Spain, Netherlands, Greece, Italy ....
Funny, isn’t it - that the US media is now busy claiming this idea of Russian “protective custody” is Obama/Kerry/Hillary’s idea, isn’t it?
That sissy picture of Obama is my FAV!!
Obma has solidified his hold ....on the WEAK Horse.
Thanks Ernest and Robert.
Thanks so much Dave. Don’t feel like changing it though, lol.
Pig In A Pantsuit, lol, wonder if new people here are even familiar with that...
