57. OTOH, Obama and Kerry have been proven truth tellers now:

The Chemical Weapons Convention that 189 nations are signed onto is doing its job well. All nations signed on are working to destroy their stockpiles, stop the use and production of WMD. That includes chemical, nuclear, biological and radiological weaponry. It is this convention that created the framework for the intelligence to let all of the world see there is a better way to live.

Tax dollars spent for peace and justice. The progress is astounding:

Bolstering Obama and Kerry's case, this just came from of all places, IRAN:

Iran ex-president says Syria government launched gas attacks: news agency

(Reuters) - Former Iranian President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said the Syrian government, a strong ally of Tehran, had carried out chemical weapons attacks against its own people, the semi-official Iranian Labour News Agency reported on Sunday.

"The people have been the target of chemical attacks by their own government and now they must also wait for an attack by foreigners," Rafsanjani said, according to ILNA. "The people of Syria have seen much damage in these two years."

That thread should be Rec'd to the Moon by those who have repeatedly called Obama, Kerry, the USA government and its intelligence forces a bunch of warmongering liars.

Want world peace and Obama's agenda on equality and the social safety net to advance?

Rec the thread since they did not lie, did not try to cowboy us into a war.

There is an outbreak of sanity in Iran today that is happening only because we have a President who didn't run for office by singing 'Bomb Iran,' nor a Christian Dominionist like Palin or the Pauls, bent on destroying Muslims.

The Iranians suffered the worst number of casualties in modern history through Sarin by Saddam Hussein through his Neo-Con pals in the GOP. They have been arguing with Assad for a long time and giving him money.

Our votes for Obama and Kerry are justified by the 'enemy.'

I'm not seeing this a loss for Obama, as opposed to what geek tragedy may be saying. The truth is out - Obama and Kerry told the facts and did not want a war for profit or conquest..

I've seen Obama stake out unpopular positions so horrifying to our base, that their screams ignited similar protests from the right. Then the GOP had to back down from positions that Obama could not get them to give up otherwise.

Since the GOP wanted us to bomb both Syria and Iran as part of their PNAC list, with Obama playing the bad guy, no party will touch those ideas again. Obama has a limited time in office and has always stated he is laying the groundwork for what will happen when he's gone.

It's not about ego with Obama or those who seek to save lives. It's about saving lives. Obama has united us in this way the only way that 'sides' ever unite with common cause, and both sides took the bait.

JMHO.
