Syria Hails ‘Historic American Retreat’ As Obama Hesitates


(Newsmax)

BEIRUT — Syria hailed an "historic American retreat" on Sunday after President Barack Obama delayed an imminent military strike by deciding to consult Congress.

As Obama stepped back from the brink, France said it could not act alone in punishing President Bashar al-Assad over a chemical weapons attack, making it the last remaining top Western ally to hesitate about bombing Syria.

Assad said on Sunday his country was capable of responding to any attack from other nations.
"Syria . . . is capable of confronting any external aggression," state television quoted Assad as saying at a meeting with Iranian officials.

Obama...............weak horse.

He emboldens our enemies.


And my guess is that he does it deliberately.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

I suspect the Syrians feel like they've already won.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

In a way they have.
