Heaven help us.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the United States is considering only an “unbelievably, small, limited” strike on Syria as punishment for allegedly using chemical weapons and he insisted military action will not end that country’s civil war.

“We’re not going to war,” Mr. Kerry told reporters Monday after meeting with British Foreign Secretary William Hague in London. “We will be able to hold [Syrian President] Bashar al-Assad accountable without engaging troops on the ground or any other prolonged kind of effort, in a very limited, very targeted, very short-term effort that degrades his capacity to deliver chemical weapons without assuming responsibility for Syria’s civil war. That is exactly what we are talking about doing; an unbelievably small, limited kind of effort.”

The Obama-Kerry foreign policy: Yell loudly, carrying an unbelievably small stick.

i'm not too sure this type bombing couldn't catch on in bizarre-land where we live lately. say we had a problem w/ England not wanting to follow barry into war. bomb somewhere like big ben to teach a lesson. one bomb. who they gonna call?
Russia is not cooperating w/ our attempts at - whatever. bomb, say somewhere in Siberia as punishment. probably have to tell them it was us and not a meteor.
big countries get big bombs and small countries, well, you see where this is going. drones all 'round. absurdity is the soup of the day every day in the w.h. café.

Kerry is an absurdity, uttering absurdities.

What he is proposing used to be called a "surgical strike", but that only works when you know beyond any doubt EXACTLY where the devices you want to destroy, are located. Currently, we have no such knowledge, and it would require troops on the ground to find the chemical weapons in Syria.

"it would require troops on the ground to find the chemical weapons in Syria. "


Yes, and even then, the chances of finding them are very small. There are a million rat-holes where they could vanish, and some of those rat-holes are across borders. We could send troops in, take over, and then run them around for months, and wind up and bringing them home with nothing to show for it except body bags and embarrassment.

Oh, and a further destabilized mid-East. Yeah, that would work.


Troops on the ground! troops on the ground!
Lookin' like a FOOL with your troops on the ground!

Absolutely agree.

Look what happened in Iraq when our troops were looking for WMD's, that we KNEW without a shadow of a doubt that Saddam had, because he had used them against the Kurds.
