In Response to Re: Why does Obama always lead from behind?:
It serves no purpose to call the President or the Secretary of State a moron.
He is opposed to the Syrian President gassing his own people. That is not the opinion of a moron. If the US has the power to disable Assad's ability to use poison gas, and I deem there is a high probability that this is so, then this could save innocent lives.
It is hardly moronic to prevent civilians from being gassed. One can argue that Syrians should be allowed to gas one another, but really, preventing people from being gassed is a positive thing. It is pretty clear that Assad has no ability to retaliate in any effective way/ Iran can rattle sabers, but if Iran could do a tenth of what it has claimed over the years, there would be no US by now.
Fangoh thinks that insulting Pelosi is somehow an adequate response, but logically, it is rather like the "I am rubber and you are glue: bounce off me, stick to you." sort of comment. Third grade at best.
Obama is NOT leading from behind: he is giving Congress and the GOP a chance to debate and participate. Fangoh should be grateful, and if he has an opinion, should share it with his congressmen. Attacking Pelosi is just silly and childish.

Although the original post is biased and from a siloed individual it does bring up an important question what are the rules for engagement in a “war where military objectives are placed near or in civilian locations?
