Translation: We should cede our own would-be influence in the Middle East to the Russians...

This seems typical of your belief that the West is no better than anti-Western forces.

Can't argue with that. I would not want this administration over seeing anything like a war. He has already been proven inept at such things.

What has he done wrong and how do you think he could have done better? Specifically what "proof" are you talking about?

He is having Putin do that for us. About time someone else did something, now specifics. What has Obama done wrong and what was right way to have done it?

Obama is still in office. You asked for specifics. The right way is for him to say "I quit!" And Russia did outstanding in Afghanistan, eh?

Oh, I see, he is working with Putin now! Well since Obama said he was going to stop ISIS, ( or something to that effect) and they have only grown and strengthened, Than I guess we are unable to beat them. I'm sure Obama has done everything he could do to beat back and destroy the powerful ISIS.

Is anyone else bothered that Russia is basically stiff-arming us into the wall as the walk down the middle of the hall?

Maybe Obama will draw Putin an imaginary red line.

I do not think Obama is doing this due to inexperience or indecisiveness. I think he wants ISIL to take out Syria's leader,pass the problem of ISIL to the next president and at the same time is trying to kiss his anti-war base's ass by not actually engaging in war. That is why he was doing these token bombings here and here while other presidents would have bombed the living **** out them and turned the enemy into a highway of death.

If Russia wants to waste the lives of their men and their tax dollars messing with the middle east I say let them.
