Winners & Losers in the this whole Syria debacle, and why:

Winners:
Putin- Looks like a statesman, who helped divert a war
Assad- loses chemical weapons, but ends any chance of intervention, probably holds onto power
House of Reps- was able to take high ground without having to vote, my guess is that there is very little turnover.

Losers:
Kerry- I have never seen someone look so much like a buffoon.
Obama- looks like he has no control of the situation, cant control his advisors.
McCain and Graham- Stood by the and up for the Presidents position, takes massive hits on their credibility.
The Syrian people- gonna keep getting killed, with no end in sight to their civil war.
The Senate- took a stand, those who are for election, who stood with the President .are going to face an up-hill battle come re-election
Hillary Clinton- same as Senate.

2. I tend to agree with that list

 

Except for Hillary, she had a low profile in this thing. She doesn't lose anything.

3. Assad will not lose his chemical weapons. Obama saves face and does not look like a loser.

4. Well, that's what the RW Moonie News has been pushing, too.

Coincidence?

There doesn't need to be a right wing memo, everyone with half a brain and tell you, who looked like clowns in this episode.

10. Clowns to those who are easy marks for corpmedia's instant analysis

Interesting that you see it played out exactly like RW moonie News saw it.

Those more informed about Syria matters of the last decade knew exactly what Obama and Kerry were doing with Russia and what US and Russia were doing with Syria.

Sorry you got stuck in your trust of the RW media.
