Diplomacy did not exist in the Bush/Cheney era.
When they explained that wasn't TRUE, he just screamed louder.
Just think if McCain would have been our president. How many wars and conflicts would we have been involved in by now?......How many THOUSANDS MORE would be dead and maimed?
Just of the record, I'm NOT for being involved in ANY of these Middle Eastern civil wars. But the HYPOCRISY of the GOP is maddening.
How on earth do you conclude that saying Assad could avoid our strikes by giving up the chemical weapons is a "gaffe"? That was no gaffe in any way shape or form. If you or anyones thinks this option wasn't talked over at the highest levels, then you are badly mistaken.

Very easily, because Kerry then followed it up by saying Syria would never give them up, that is the gaffe and the proof they never planned or talked about it. That gaffe then forced them to agree to any proposal Putin wanted as long as it had the "agreement" he would get Syria to remove them.

No it isn't...some have no clue how to negotiate. There was no "gaffe"; just a well timed bluff. Kov's comments are a direct result of listening to the moron on EIB radio...and of course, to our low-information posters, if Limblah said it, it must be true. Bawahahaha....
