Obama Stands to Win in Syria and Iran without Firing a Single Shot

President Assad may have miscalculated the effect of the term "chemical warfare" on the collective consciousness of his Iranian allies.
Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem says 'terrorists' in Syria have carried out the country's equivalent of 9/11

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem says 'terrorists' in Syria have carried out the country's equivalent of 9/11

That’s practically an enthusiastic endorsement for Khamenei.

The art of speaking softly while carrying a big Tomahawk is not easy to master—I don’t believe GW Bush knew the first thing about it, and neither did President Clinton. But Bush 1 understood it and played it with skill and precision. I’d like to think that President Obama has acquired a similar understanding of what it means to be the world’s last remaining superpower: it means letting your super powers be tested as little as possible—until you bring down the hammer of God big time.

Living down in the coastal city of Netanya, I’m ecstatic that America is not raining hellfire on its enemy a couple hours’ car ride away from my back yard. If it turns out it was also the smart thing to do – I’ll be the first one to stand and applaud President Obama.

    Finally. A little credit.

    How in the world is syria going to hand over ALL their chemical weapons if
    there is a civil war going on. Who is going into the combat zones to inspect?
    Russia and Iran as guarantors? Hey there's a bridge in brooklyn I can sell to you.
    What is happening here is the the incompetent Obama is being allowed
    to take his foot out of his red line mouth. A surrender of some weapons
    will occur but it's doubtful that all weapons could be eliminated.
    In fact how do we know that Assad even has control over all the weapons?
    There is fragmentation on both sides. A local general could still horde some weapons.
    But Obama will given his escape and an opportunity to wreck more havoc in
    the Middle east.

    CHANGING HISTORY DEPARTMENT – This writer talks about Saddam Hussein playing games with Bush and Clinton concerning hiding his "WMD stash." As I recall history, Hussein never had a WMD stash. But who cares about the truth.

  4. Robin Rosenblatt says:
