Do we have the dumbest foreign policy team in history?
First, SecState Kerry advertises that any strikes on Syria will be “unbelievably small.”
This is going to deter who from doing what, exactly? This is what I’ve been on about ever since the to-ing and fro-ing about how little we could get away with doing in Syria started. It will have no deterrent effect, and if it sends a signal, it will be one of utter fecklessness. They are rolling in the aisles in Damascus, Moscow, and Tehran.
Then Kerry suggests that Syria could avoid a US strike by putting its chemical weapons under international control.
That’s bad enough-how could we ever know he put them all under international control? But it’s worse. When Lavrov and Assad jumped at this, Kerry said that his proposal was merely “rhetorical.”
Again. Not from The Onion.
I am tired after a long day, and tired of watching this display of incompetence. I will just point out these things, and presume that the self-evident idiocy means that further comment is unnecessary.
