Obama Puts Plans for His "Petite Military Strike" (PMS) On Hold...For Now.

We rejoin Alice just after she drank the potion that made her small enough to slip down the rabbit hole:

Since then, we marched to the brink of war with Syria only to be yanked back when Secretary of State Jean Carré downgraded it to le petit guerre. He advised us, and the world at the same time, that what we really had planned was not a war-war, butt an “unbelievably, small, limited” strike on Syria. More of a timeout than an armed conflict you see. And he promised we would only use very little planes,


and the tiniest of soldiers, if indeed, we were to put boots on the ground at all.


And even then, we’d try to confine it to the drum and bugle corps:


Big Guy wasn’t so keen on Jean Carré’s idea however, as he has a soft spot for drums, and little drummer boys.

That’s when things really started getting curious: Jean Carré gave Syria a week to hand over it’s chemical weapons, or suffer the onslaught of le petit guerre, or as Big Guy – who doesn’t speak French calls it: a petite military strike, PMS. 

Kerry said Assad might avoid an attack if he handed every bit of his chemical weapons stock, but added that the Syrian president was not going to do that.

Russia then jumped in to offer to broker the transfer of all chemical weapons into their stockpile hands. Then, even more curiously, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton jumped back into the fray to say that she’s taking Russia’s offer very seriously:

"This is about protecting the Syrian people... and our friends in the regions... If the regime immediately surrendered its stockpiles to international control... that would be an important step. But this cannot be another excuse for delay or obstruction,”

Although it’s unclear as to why anything Hillary has to say at this point is relevant, other than the fact she’s running for president in 2016. That, and the fact that Jean Carré gaffed us into another fine mess and the RBB’s (really big brains) hadn’t been able to come up with any other countermove to prevent the king from being cornered.

hillary drinking the potionI advised her against drinking the shrinking elixir, butt did she listen? Noooo.

So BO went on TV last night to say Russia’s offer could be a “breakthrough”  despite the fact the State Department has "serious and deep skepticism” of both Russia’s and Syria’s offers. and now this morning we hear that Syria has accepted Russia’s offer! Quelle surprise!

Nevertheless, Jean Carré, echoing his predecessor's words from yesterday, said today:

 "President Obama will take a hard look at it. But it has to be swift, it has to be real, it has to be verifiable. It can’t be a delaying tactic."

Well, at least we have our two Secretaries of State on the same page. And that’s where we stand for now, as far as I know.

So what have we learned from all this? As I’ve said before, “You go to war with the clowns you have, not the clowns you might want or wish to have at a later time.”

Where does that leave Le Petit Noir Prince? I’m not sure.

Butt I do know there’s a moral to this story: never, ever, try to play dimensional chess if all of your players are either checkers or pawns.


If I may mix my metaphors a bit, that kind of clown parade will no doubt result in your black king being trumped by somebody who’s playing with a full deck.

If you catch my drift.
