Tyler, Texas (KETK) — Accidental foreign policy.
This has all happened in the past 24 hours:
President Barack Obama was in the middle of a mess he made about the attacking Syria "red line" comment.
He was still threatening to bomb Syria, John Kerry was in London lobbying for them to be on our side.
Kerry made an exasperated comment saying, "We'd back off of Syria if they would just let the international community hold their chemical weapons."
- Vladimir Putin of Russia heard that and 15 seconds later said, "You're on!"
Obama didn't even know he had an accidental lifeline thrown to him until Hillary Clinton said, "The Kerry solution makes sense."
"Obama-ites" circled their wagons saying that is "their solution," claiming Syria was afraid of our firepower and somehow Obama and Putin started this conversation at the recent G 20 Summit.
While the president's acolytes are claiming victory, the victory goes to Putin. He just jerked the rug out from underneath Obama. He's the power broker in the Middle East and Russia is on the big stage.
Syria keeps their weapons and they're not going anywhere. This entire episode shows we have no foreign policy.
We've just made a deal with two of the most despicable men on the planet.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
