Secretary of State John Kerry has an ultimatum for Syria's Assad: Hand over your chemical weapons or face attack. The Senate will be voting this week on a resolution, Kerry is expressing some ambiguity concerning the issue of whether Obama and the Cabinet would go ahead with strikes anyway.

UK foreign secretary William Hague, who is abiding by the decision of The House of Commons, has stressed humanitarian aid and submission to the Geneva II Peace process. Pointing out that David Cameron had called a meeting of the G-20 summit in st. Petersburg to ramp up the humanitarian effort, he avoided questions concerning military aid to the rebels.

If we REALLY wanted to destabilize the Assad regime-

we would have the NSA hack all the TV and radio broadcasts channels in Syria and have it play 24 hour re-runs of fox news. thatd drive the people against him real quick.

After meeting w Obama, Putin gave the US an option to save face

http://www.dailypaul.com/298602/russia-urges-syria-hand-over...

Their false flag bullshit didn't work, Obama and Putin knew it and the Russians gave Obama an option to save face.

Syria seems to agree to what the Russians propose so, if there's other chemical attacks in the future, we will know with certainty that it was the terrorist rebels.

Furthermore, since Assad doesn't seem to have a problem to comply, there will be no excuse by the US to intervene and Assad will finish up those terrorist rebels without direct meddling by west.

Putin is wiping the floor with Obama, it's embarrassing...

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom — go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, an

REALITY CHECK: in 2009 Assad

REALITY CHECK: in 2009 Assad rejected a deal with the US and Saudi Arabia to build a oil pipeline through Syria. Assad instead made the deal with Iran and Russia.

The US then sent the CIA to train and FUND rebels in Turkey and Jordan to go start a "civil war" in Syria.

Didn't go well, so now Obama wants to escalade it to start bombing them to get rid of Assad. Just google CIA and Syria.

If you noticed, Gibbs didn't any anything, he just kept diverting the questions back to something Sachs didn't say. And YES the US did take part in killing of the 1000s of people by arming the insurgents..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

When WE think PRECISION

When WE think PRECISION strikes, we think minimal death

When THEY say "precision" strikes, they dont necasarily mean minimal death, they also, or only, MEAN, cost effective targets to a GOAL regardless of "enemy" deaths

There's the problem...

Who is the enemy? No regime change, so Assad isn't the enemy. The Saudis and Americans are supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and Al-Qaeda, so they aren't the enemy. There's only one group of people left who are the enemy...innocent civilians.

not really what was said

He didn't actually say "give me your weapons in a week or we'll attack." He was responding to a question about what Syria could do to avoid an attack. A small difference but a difference nonetheless. It does illustrate however the absurdity of campaigning for weeks on end to launch missiles into this other country, and it makes it clear that no matter what other solutions are offered, Kerry just wants to have those missiles launched. Why? Ego? Who knows.

Sometimes I wonder if Obama and Kerry have been drinking ...

too much Diet Coke. Their brain cells seem to be atrophying by the millions.

Isn't this the same drama the kicked off Iraq?

I seem to remember dubya giving the Iraqis an ultimatum and then announcing the war right on the deadline of their non-compliance, his face on TV as if he were addressing them.

And then we got to see the 'video game' footage of the bombs dropping at night.

Yes,

and the same drama kicked off Libya (remember "for humanitarian reasons)...that worked out really well, only 4 Americans killed in a riot sparked by a video.

Thus Kerry is Violating the 5th Amendment

The government is not allowed to violate the inalienable right not to incriminate oneself. Forced confessions are unconstitutional.

Stupider and stupider.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Hand them over ... or face an unbelievably small attack

Buried in that article we learn that Kerry said: the United States aims to carry out an “unbelievably small” strike at Assad’s forces.

What a bizarre thing to say.

Next week he's going to say, "This morning we attacked Assad. The attack was unbelievably small. Apparently nobody even noticed it, that's how small it was. But it did happen. And if any other tyrant dares use chemical weapons, let it be known that the United States stands prepared to retaliate with unbelievably small attacks again."

Kerry: And thanks to our friends,

the Saudis, they paid the full cost of the unbelievably small attack.

Firecrackers?

Firecrackers?

I wish.

But I doubt it.

ultimatums is still involving

ultimatums is still involving yourself

But we all know your still hoping this will lead to "precision" strikes, aint that right kerry

I'd be more afraid of having

I'd be more afraid of having these alleged chemical weapns (if they exist) in the hands of Kerry etal under any guise. Syria is NOT a signatory of declaration of non-use of chemical weapons. Who is using them? They would be more dangerous in the hands of the United States or UN controlled by the United States if anything was turned over to them. Who do they think they are anyway? ...giving ultimatums to another sovereign nation?

And the State Dept quickly dismissed it..

The schizophrenic nature of these statements really bothers me. It shows that they're both desperate and CRAZY.

Desperate & Crazy.....

...... And you're being rather generous!

That was intentional ;)

Believe you me, I've let out my fair share of profanities over this nonsense. I'm trying to show a little restraint today, if only to bottle up my rage in anticipation of Obama's softball interviews later tonight.

He might as well have said "Give me a Unicorn or I will kill you"
Think about it, what is Assad supposed to do if he has none? by some from China?

Nice one! It's as if US

Nice one! It's as if US already has war effort in play and all this rhetoric and theater is after the fact to engage Americans emotionally into their war effort...except it's not working! Watching them unravel before the eyes of the world is gratifying to say the least.

This almost makes me wish Russia would *give* them some

or China would, for that matter, just to keep Kerry guessing. Then Assad could give them to the US to shut Kerry and This Current Occupant of the White House up.

Impeachment time!

Apparently they think this is their country and everyone else just lives here.
It's impeachment time!!!!!

Would you settle for Declaring the Current Occupant Ineligible

For Office?

I think a new law is in order

Any politician taking campaign contributions, getting jobs with, getting bribes, getting speaking engagements, etc from a military contractor shall be tried for treason and war profiteering and hung. Enough of this crap already!!

I think Kerry/Obama made the situation easy for us:

If Obama/Kerry attack, we impeach or do "something else."

Innocent people are going to die unless we do something.

It really is that simple.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Agree!
