Speaking of "boom", there was a 7.0 eq in Alaska as he was speaking. Hmmm


Edit: ok, it happened before his speech...

Glad that's finally over.

I was watching on CNN and the second after the speech was over, Wolf Blitzer flat out said....well, its pretty clear now the US isn't backing down no matter what, even though they're going at it by themselves.

ETA - CNN is also saying Obama thinks this is a direct threat to the security of the US....

I'm confused.
Or did it mean like, "now the blood is in your hands for holding us back."?

How long did it just take him to say nothing?.

Sounded like an experienced salesman trying to sell something to someone he knew wouldn't buy it, but then he never tried to close the deal.

Maybe those breathers of rarified air do hear us way up there where they are....

Just caught the tail end of it, and.... is it just me or has Kerry always reminded anyone else of the guy on the right:



???

even more with age.


From what I gathered he's basically just saying, "Hold onto your seats. Keep your hands inside the vehicle at all times. Stuff's about to get Real , but only 'limited' real. (?)

However, the future contains unknowns, and 'limited' isn't guaranteed, in the end this could all blow up into a region-wide conflagration .... and, given the nature of the countries involved, most likely will, IMHO. (?)

[ETA]

Guy just comes across to me as the epitome [perfect image] of "an undertaker".

I guess all we can hope for now is that Syria Russia and Iran don't have the same foolish pride and don't follow thru with their threats.

You don't need to know, they know.

This whole thing could turn into a giant mess.

The Soviet Union lost track of some nukes when it collapsed, didn't it?.

I did notice the emphasis on children in the speech, we ain't all gonna fall for the old "emotional response" again, are we?, I certainly hope we don't.

Yep .. didn't see any evidence of that.
All we got was subjected to heart wrenching videos of dead children.
Still dont' see why the USA needs to deal with this ....

He said were going to strike Syria no matter what the US people and congress says most importantly, no matter what our Allies are going to do, and no matter what the UN says....

Obama still has Snowden on the mind and wants to show the big bear and the rest of the world how big a man he is, he wants his war jacket... What I got is that they somehow *KNOW* beyond a reasonable doubt that Assad gassed the people, we KNOW that children were killed, and we know that WE HAVE TO ATTACK..

In a nutshell..

So Kerry says;

We know Assad did it.

UN can't say who did it.

Russians are obstructionists.

Iran Hezbollah and N Korea are evil.

We have more info but can't tell you it's classified.

Save the children.

Weapons of mass destruction.

Talking to congressional leaders but Obama decides if we go to war. WTF.

FOX NEWS talking head ref: Kerry speech - 'melodrama is not a substitute for strategy'. Talking had said Kerry's speech was full of hypocrisy. Kerry was against going up against Saddam who killed millions of people and used chemical weapons against the Kurds ... but now says the USA needs to go to war against Syria because 1,500 people died in a civil war there.

If it has to do with a direct threat of some sort, it must be some of that information they can't share with us for whatever reason or other.

What Ever!!!!.
