What you’ll see on the video below is John Kerry, who is saying that the atrocities being committed in Syria by the rebels will actually get worse if we don’t help them.
Yes, that’s right. Our help will improve the behavior of the rebels, and the lack of our help will lead to their behavior worsening.
It’s not quite “what difference does it make?” but that’s only because Kerry can’t say anything meaningful in five words.
He can’t say anything meaningful in 500 words, or 5,000, either.
Does anybody else get the impression that the Obama regime is just phoning this in? It seems quite obvious that Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, isn’t in favor of getting involved.
And meanwhile, Obama is meeting with Putin on Syria without any particular acrimony as the latter is all but clowning on the former.
A survey of Drudge headlines on Syria seems instructive…
Does that look like American leadership to you, or utter and complete diplomatic and geopolitical incompetence?
Obama and his pals in the Democrat Party – to include Kerry – spent an enormous amount of energy in castigating his predecessor for a lack of attention in rallying the world behind the Iraq war.
How does this compare to that?
Not all that well.
Meanwhile, Kerry’s credibility is still reeling from his disastrous performance in the House hearing on Syria, in which Rep. Jeff Duncan made him look almost as awful as Rand Paul did…
And Obama is currently on TV from St. Petersburg giving the justification for this decision, and it sounds something like this…
It doesn’t matter all much that somebody used gas in a civil war when both sides are violently anti-American and no interest of ours is at stake. It’s just as irrelevant as seeing something nasty in the woodshed, another false justification for the spreading of misery and expense without reason.
