Obama: I ‘Welcome’ Putin’s Involvement in Syria — ‘This is Not the Cold War’
The Blaze ^ | 9/15/13 | Oliver Darcy

Posted on 09/15/2013 9:03:02 AM PDT by Nachum

President Barack Obama said he welcomes Russian President Vladimir Putin’s involvement with Syria, in an interview that aired Sunday.

“I welcome him being involved,” Obama said on ABC’s “This Week.”

“I welcome him saying, ‘I will take responsibility for pushing my client, the Assad regime, to deal with these chemical weapons,’” he continued. “This is not the Cold War. This is not a contest between the United States and Russia.”

The president, responding to Putin’s op-ed in the New York Times, said he doesn’t “think that Mr. Putin has the same values that we do.”

Obama added that Russian influence in Syria “doesn’t hurt our interests.”

Right this is not “The Cold War.” That was the war we won. There needs to be a new name for the new war that we are trying to lose.

That’s obvious. On issues like gay marriage, taxes and the enforcement of immigration laws Obama and Putin are polar opposites.

Highway robbery going good for Putin and Assad.

Like at the gas station, policy is give the money, so no need to bring a gun Putin. We got Bernanke.

No, of course not. Just as Russian involvement in Iran doesn’t hurt our interests....until the next IRI financed terror attack on us.

The ever receding red line... Now zero is bending over.. “Ok ok... Don’t hurt it too much now. America will think we are geniuses.”

Funny how when it is a little white boy’s values Obama tells him to shove it.

The Saudis are the ones financing terror attacks.

AlQaeda is 100% Sunni.

Heh...Putin didn't take responsibility for anything except making Obama look like the jackass he is.

I'm thinking that neither of them have American values.

The 1960s campus radical, psycho spoiled brats didn't like the U.S.S.R. -- but only because it was too much like the U.S. The campus radical, psycho spoiled brats preferred revolutionary Marxism like Castro and Mao.

Sorry, but the IRI has been behind a number of attacks on the U.S., not to mention the IED’s that have killed and crippled thousands of our soldiers in Iraq & Afghanistan

Sounds like a desperate attempt to cover his own ineptitude in foreign affairs. The old pros Putin and Assad played him like a cheap violin.

On the other hand, if he honestly believes this, he's a world-class ninny.

Nobody on GMA this morning or in anything I've read mentions that this leaves McCain, Graham, and Boehner out there looking foolish supporting a plan than even Obama didn't support.

Every cloud has a silver lining....

At least during the Cold War, we had one party that was trying to advance the interests of the US.

So I guess now Russia can do whatever it wants... The non aggression pact etc...

If venture is peaceful, usually it does not require the label of peace, like McDonalds for example.

So why insist there is no Cold War?

Fact is, Russia is still fighting WWII... And against us. Heck, there are still Germans with gripes against the UK.

We are inundated by a bunch of scheming Neville Chamberlains without a love for their country, as misplaced and as naïve as it was for him. Our ‘champions’ are only seeking to cut our historical traditional adults down to size and to deliver this country’s control and wealth to people who are barely able to wipe their own asses, if that.

We are in a Kafka world. Obama supports the role of Putin in the Syria civil war; Russia will keep Assad in power and maintain supplying him with unlimited conventional weapons while U.S. agreed that they will no attack Syria under any circumstances, even though the accord for the disposal of the chemical weapons is a complete embarrassment for the prestige of the United States’ role as first world power .

Many of those who support Obama’s involvement on the Syrian civil war are the same people who were opposed to the Iraq war, even though Syria is not a menace to the U.S. and it is a civil war among Muslims in which one band is as evil as the other.
To further their agenda those who want to involve U.S. in another Middle Eastern war are using as an emotional argument that Assad killed with chemical weapons over 1,400 civilians, most of them children according to the pictures. (According to the French intelligence, the dead were about 300 and the French leftist organization working in Syria, “Physicians without Frontiers”, put the dead count over 400.)
The problem is that the picture they are using was posted by the BBC and they had to retire it when the photographer who took the photo saw it on the BBC web site, it was taken on Iraq in 2003 when Saddam Hussein murdered with chemicals weapons more than 5,000 Kurds in a single day!
Even though BBC retired the picture, the fake photo was edited and all TV news programs keep posting it as proof of the horrendous crimes against humanity committed by the butcher of Bagdad. Obama, and those supporting the involvement of U.S. on Syria’s civil war on humanitarian grounds, prefer to ignore that they kept silent when Assad last year used chemicals weapons in Syria and when he murdered with conventional weapons more than 100,000 of his own people.
It is unconscionably that Obama had not shown the same humanitarian concern for the lives of the Christians, since Obama took power, more than one million Christians have been massacred all around Africa and their churches set on fire by Muslims while Obama, the United Nations, and the rest of the world, kept a thundered silence.

You or Vlad don't have the same values that we do, Barry. You're both POS totalitarians. He badmouths the exceptionalism of America (founding documents). You plunder the exceptional Americans.

I’ll bet that the Bamster truly feels uncomfortable being characterized as in a cold war with Putin. Bamster has always assured himself and his Marxist buddies that he loves Russia and the former Soviet Union. Its the USA that he has always disliked.
