Denies US Policy failing? Ah right, to support Terrorists in Syria by send them weapons. So he is right about that, they support the Terrorists

The policy can't be "failing" because the failure has already been fully accomplished. The "red line" was crossed, Obama put his tail between his legs (lots of room there because he has nothing else between his legs) and walked away. So now Russia, Iran, and anyone else with a grudge and a gun can go out and kill to their heart's content.

This administration is all over the place, pathetic, looking more and more like Keystone cops.

So the US's goal is to remove Assad? What gives the US the right to implement regime change any where it wants? If it's about chemical weapons, lets deal with that.

Come to think of it, the US has chemical weapons too, several magnitude larger amount than that was Syria, and it too used it massively in the Vietnam war. Why has the US not set a deadline to destroy its own chemical weapons?

The people in the US government, who inherited their genes from the likes of Cheney and Rumsfeld, think that their hypocrisy can fool the world, or at least fool its own citizens. They are fooling themselves!

The only reason the world has been putting up with this nonsense is because their militaries are not yet strong enough. But you can bet they are trying to step up on that.

The United States is providing non-lethal support to the rebels...

...support Terrorists in Syria by send them weapons...

Uh, Defkosh, what part of "non-lethal" do you not understand?

The "red line" was crossed, Obama put his tail between his legs (lots of room there because he has nothing else between his legs) and walked away.

Ha ha, sangetsu03, did you come up with that yourself? Certainly you know that the "red line" referred to the use of chemical weapons. Turns out, see, that seven nations, including China and Russia, are cooperating to remove those from Syria and dispose of them after Obama playing bad cop ("I'll bomb ya, man!") to Putin's good cop ("He's just crazy enough to do it!") panicked Assad.

Bass, the US does not have a dog in this fight. Would you support supplying lethal arms to the rebels, or to Assad's regime? Would you support direct American military involvement? (I'm sure they would welcome us with open arms, the war would be a cakewalk, and it would pay for itself, of course.) Or do you support painful and time-consuming negotiation? The latter is the only long-term solution; in addition, it has the psychological effect of making clear to the people in that part of the world that Uncle Sam will no longer reflexively save them from themselves. The bloodbath is atrocious, but the lesson is necessary.

Strange that the last few threads about Syria have been ignored....until the US gets mentioned.

It was just ' an unpopular policy' but not the reasons as stated by Mr Kerry!
