Contemptible how the incompetent idiots Obama and Kerry allowed themselves to be elbowed aside and humiliated by Putin. Obama and Kerry should both resign or be driven from office in disgrace.

On the other hand, had Obama lobbed in even one teeny weenie missile, he would have committed an impeachable offense. He and Kerry both swear by the UN (I don't) but I believe that by the UN's vaunted international standards, Obama could have been charged as a war criminal for starting a war of aggression. Lobbing even one missile into Syria would be an act of war.

Obama's arrogance and lust for dictatorial power got himself into this mess and now Putin is taking maximum advantage.

Russia has a lot at stake in this move. A naval base in Syria and complete access to the Med. Both Kerry and Obama blinked. They are taking this gift horse without vetting the gift. While Putin and Assad play chess, Obama is playing checkers. We can all see that Obama continues to lead from behind.

Putin isn't the only one taking advantage, looks like he has some comrades in the states.
