Obama's late to act on Syria

September 13, 2013 

In light of the foot shuffling of this administration and the offer by Russian President Vladimir Putin to help Syrian President Assad divest Syria of chemical/poison weapons.

Can we trust Putin? Assad? And even more President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry?

I think not.

We needed a president with a backbone 18 months ago to arm the rebels and declare a no-fly zone. Simple. But simple is too much for Obama to understand, he's just too smart. Smart?
