Parliament says no to military intervention in Syria; US still leading from behind

As Twitchy reported earlier today, Sen. Ted Cruz and other members of Congress were wondering when President Obama might take a break from saber rattling to consult with them  regarding a possible military strike on Syria.

Across the Atlantic, the House of Commons Thursday evening voted not to authorize military force against the Assad regime.

Will Obama go it alone?

Well, that and the whole “leading from behind [closed doors]” policy he’s pursued until now.

    IMHO, the only reason Dinglebarry even leaked our own sensitive ‘war’ information to the press (and our enemies) was just so he could test the waters to try and see how military action in Syria might affect his pathetic legacy before he does anything. I guess first he needs to figure out all the crap he said about Bush when he naively grandstanded all those times. What a na├»ve and feckless, partisan-hack dope. A leader he is not.

      Agree 100%, thought it was a memory but it must’ve been a dream that this admin was outraged by leaks and that was their excuse for tapping the AP and other journalists. Obama’s image trumps all and the msm agrees.

    Poor obama – such as sad, pathetic little dictator – not a friend in the world.

    • Love of Country

      But that’s no reflection on him, my friend …. it’s those damn racists.

      Look for Eric Holder and MSNBC to dress-down racist Great Britain ad nauseum and all the rest of the countries who had formerly joined Bush’s racist “little” coalition of at least 30 countries during that time when he was “going at it alone”. This hideous and insidious form of racism against Barack Hussein Owebamao will not stand!

        I think you may be onto something.

    Right now, the Russian aides to Putin are having a tough time calming him down from his laughing fit…..He can’t believe the incompetence of Barry and the Brits….Wishes they were around back in the Brezhnev days…

    The Administration’s a joke. Can’t wait to see what Magic Johnson’s reaction to this is.

  • The Penguin #PublishThatSh*t

    And tweeted reactions on the UK’s decision to stand down from Ambassadors Rice and Power in 3-2-1…

  • CatHerder

    Is anyone really interested enough to get tied down in another third-world cesspool fighting yet another protracted non-war we aren’t allowed to win? I would have thought we’d learned our lesson in Vietnam, but nooo…we did it again in Iraq and Afghanistan. AFGHANISTAN, where every army since Alexander the Great has come to grief! Now Feckless Leader wants us to stick our reproductive organs into the meat grinder once again, for the sake of people who hate everything about us. Yeah, what could possibly go wrong with that.

    • The Penguin #PublishThatSh*t

      And plus with NOBODY ELSE’S SUPPORT. Not the American people. Not the UN. Not even the UK. Bypassing Congress yet again. I would think Israel should be much concerned. They’ll get hit first. And what about Russia and Iran? They kinda have a vested interest in Syria. We’re a joke to the rest of the world already. This is definitely a stupid move on his part if there’s a strike.

      • CatHerder

        Israel will take it right up the booty chute true, in the cause of Feckless Leader not looking like a wimp. I am dead set against this, and I hope Congress grows a pair and holds him to the letter of the Constitution.

        • Guest

          Yup. Anytime a Muslim gets sand kicked in their face they attack Israel in one way or another.

        I’m torn between which side of the country formerly known as the USA, I want to live on….
        Russian side…. Great Vodka & Caviar…….
        China Side…. MooGooGaiPan, Egg Rolls & Fried Rice……
        Decisions…… Decisions…….. O.o

          Also the Hispanic Southern areas. After the amnesty bill passes. Enchiladas, tequila… uh oh, I just made your decision even harder didn’t I?

          • WhoMeToo

            No worries. Russia & China will put an end to all of that… along with a few other “foreseen” consequences of leftist voting.

          Won’t they serve Soylent Green in all the “Reeducation Camps?”

          • WhoMeToo

            Thanks for pissing in my Wheaties TUG!!! Thanks a lot! >:^P

            No sh*t! Jeez!

    David, such a little man. Real leaders don’t obey the law and ask permission.

    Syria is in a civil war and the Middle East is in turmoil and we shouldn’t get involved in these wars. These are sectarian minorities including Shiites and Sunnis that have major disagreement with each other while Christian minorities in the region are being persecuted. Russia and Iran don’t want to lose their influence with Syria like they have with Libya. Now Russia is sending its warships to the Eastern Mediterranean Sea where American warships are. This is turning into Obama’s mess.

    Chris Matthews: “The British Parliament is racccisssstttt!”

    • ObamaFail

      Al Sharpton is probably preparing a protest against British racism as we speak.

  • ObamaFail

    Obama doesn’t want to go through Congress because he is afraid that they won’t let him have his way without more information.
