It’s over for President Obama’s plan to launch a ‘limited but decisive’ strike on Syria. (Snip) Now, with Britain out of the operation, Obama faces the prospect of going into Syria almost literally alone, without UN, NATO, Congress or even the UK to back him up. Two courses are now open to him. He can climbdown as best he can and pretend he’s changed his mind or he can go forward risking a wider war for nothing. (Snip) Yet a climbdown would represent a public and devastating humiliation of the man who once believed he bestrode the world.

Comments:
Whatever Obama does, it will be wrong, because he can do no right. He is cursed with a curse, and government policy will not improve until he is gone from office: reverse Midas in action. Or inaction, whichever might be worse. Diogenes wouldn´t believe this guy.

The language will be fun. He´ll have to talk about the need for (and lack of) confirmatory evidence. While threatening Syria with even bigger consequences.

He´s too cool for school...and you heard it here.

You know Obama desperately wants to murder a bunch of people in Syria to distract from the fact that he is piece of feces. The low-life race-baiter needs to take attention away from the woeful job he is doing in the White House.

Perhaps he can persuade McCain or Christie to come to his rescue?

O will stay in an evaluating mode about Syria. The WH and Kerry will announce there are promising signs that Assad will fold, yada, yada, yada.

Doing nothing will be hailed as a brilliant decision in the media. And Obama will be a genius for thinking of it.

In parallel O will announce a blizzard of new regulations about nearly everything. Those will distract and drive Syria out of the news.

I was not kidding in my other post. Soon it will be Labor Day and all will be forgotten. Obama will do nothing. He will say nothing. He has done nothing, so he will just ignore it, head to the golf course, and let it fade away as a summer memory. The destroyers will be redeployed elsewhere, and in a couple months everyone will wonder "whatever happened with that?" That´s what I´d do. Nothing.

I never thought that I´d enjoy an American President, Secretary of State and entire foreign policy "team" of incompetent, appeasing morons getting humiliated, disrespected, disregarded and laughed at by allies and enemies alike...and I´m trying like hell not to.

Democrats never should have abandoned the "politics stops at the water´s edge" unwritten rule, starting with Vietnam, to undermining Reagan with Gorbachev and in Central America, all the way through to Iraq and Afghanistan. Some of us remember.

If Obama actually had a foreign policy he could make a coherent case for a whole lotta´ things.

I´d start with a simple one ~ like Putin´s. First, there are national economic interests. Defend them. Secondly, we have ancient cultural and religious affiliations and we will defend them.

When it comes to Syria, we have few econimic interests there, but some allies do ~ there are pipelines crossing the country from the oil fields to ports on the Mediterranean. That´s usually of interest in that region.

Then, there are Christians ~ not a majority by any means, but several of the most ancient Christian communities. We also have cultural and family ties to a degree having hosted hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees over the last century.

The US is not required to be an enemy to the religious affiliations and interests of significant numbers of Americans.

All ´bama needs to say is We will not participate in any actions that will displace Syria´s Christian community any more than it already is.

End of story.

Compare Obama´s behavior with how Reagan conducted the raid on Libya. Reagan did not dither and squirm on the public stage. Most of the discussions and planning were done privately. And he pretty much shut-up Qadaffi for 15 years.

I am among those who think it would be a mistake to attack Syria. We have no real national interest there. As long as two bad guys are fighting and killing each other, let ´em. That said, and with Obama having backed himself into a corner, I´m surprised he doesn´t go to Congress and let them vote on it. My sense now is Congress would not support it, especially if Obama gave a quiet word not to. Once rejected by Congress, there he has his out. "I wanted to protect the innocents of Syria," he could then say, "but Congress wouldn´t let me."

A Washington Post report that the US has decided to deploy ground forces to Poland, ostensibly to act as a tripwire to deter further Russian threats, raises some interesting issues. (Snip) The net effect will be to force Obama to do either do what Poland hopes — pivot to Europe — or clearly abandon it. Pivoting to Europe must leave the Pacific exposed. To cover all bases Obama will have to postpone his plan to fundamentally transform America into a welfare-type state and use that money to rebuild the military. Poland may be trying to hustle Obama into being decisive,

The BBC reports that pro-Russian separatists are already violating the Four Party Geneva agreement before the ink is dry on the paper. (Snip) An administration which came to office promising to use diplomacy to solve every international crisis has come very close to destroying its chosen instrument. They are within an ace of wrecking the credibility in agreements themselves. His deal with Putin, like his forgotten “deal” with Assad and his hoped for “deal” with Iran are worth less than Mickey Mouse money. Ironically the demolition of diplomacy began when Obama declared his intention to rely upon it to the

An avalanche has left 12 dead and four missing in the worst-ever recorded disaster on Mount Everest. With peak season just days away on the deadly mountain, Sherpas and guides are busy preparing for the trek up the highest peak in the world. "The Sherpa guides were carrying up equipment and other necessities for climbers when the disaster happened," a spokesman for Nepal´s Tourism Ministry, Mohan Krishna Sapkota, told the AFP news agency. Before a climber begins the ascent, hired Sherpas set up camps at higher altitudes and fix routes and ropes on the slopes above. The Sherpa guides had

A surprise deal has been reached at the Four Party talks in Geneva, which the president touted as his diplomatic option. (Snip) This doesn’t sound very victorious. But the president’s style is to bluff his way to victory. Recently he claimed that the Obamacare debate was over even though he’s ordered the census bureau to revise its metrics so nothing can be measured. He’s even reserved the right to make changes to the program, claiming the Republicans have no right to input until they change their attitude. Too bad that doesn’t work with Putin.

The band writes in an announcement on their Facebook that "after forty years of life dedicated to AC/DC," Young will be "taking a break from the band due to ill health." "Malcom would like to thank the group´s diehard legions of fans worldwide for their never-ending love and support," the statement continues. "In light of this news, AC/DC asks that Malcom and his family´s privacy be respected during this time. The band will continue to make music."

Files detail allegations that Dallas judge

Judge Carlos Cortez flirted with disaster for years. Until recently, politics and good lawyers helped save him. Democratic Party power brokers knew of his abusive language, a drunken driving charge and sexual harassment rumors. Still, they helped Cortez raise $1 million in a decade — more campaign cash than any other district judge in Texas. He spent much of it, a Dallas Morning News investigation shows, on a legal fight to suppress far more damning allegations: that he used cocaine, paid for sex, choked a woman who accused him of fathering her son, and sexually assaulted a little girl.

The 45-year-old’s manager Sabine Kehm confirmed earlier this month that Schumacher was showing signs of consciousness and being awake, and she has now elaborated on her latest revelation that gives hope of the F1 great making a recovery. “There are short moments of consciousness and he is showing small signs of progress,” Kehm told German broadcaster ARD.

The danger in the Ukraine crisis was always that the Ukrainians — or some faction therein — would fight the Russians, escalating the crisis. Resistance from Obama was not in the cards. CNN quoted David Frum as saying that Obama had in effect gave Putin the “green light” to carve up Ukraine. Obama’s admirers think so too, though they put it differently. Ronan Farrow has advised the president to do nothing as Russia advances. “So, President Obama waiting and exercising caution isn’t necessarily sitting on his hands. It may be the caution that we need right now.” Farrow’s right. Obama’s

Just as the legal profession has its Latinisms and the sports world its slang, the art world has its own language and jargon that can often leave outsiders scratching their heads. This insider vocabulary includes terms that may seem a bit comical ("houseable," meaning the artwork fits in a normal-size living room) or contradictory (objects in a museum may be on "permanent loan," which is a loan no one has any intention of paying back, or donated as a "fractional gift," meaning the owner may keep possession of the piece while donating it in installments over time).

Last week’s Supreme Court decision in McCutcheon v.

Predictably, it unleashed a wrath of criticism from labor unions. But a comparison of their rhetoric to reality shows a little introspection is warranted before they call the kettle black. In the hours after McCutcheon was announced, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka stated, “The Supreme Court made one of the most undemocratic and corrosive decisions in history with the Citizen’s United (sic) ruling.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
