Sounds to Cheap Seats like the most dangerous place in the world is any place in which Barack Obama and John Kerry and (Up)Chuck Hagel pledge a serious bromance.
As Capitol Hill’s chief appeasers during George W. Bush’s time in the White House, the aforementioned three stooges bitterly complained that Dubya was mistreating their favorite little dictator.
Now the Obama-Kerry-Hagel triumvirate is talking tough about Bashar al-Assad, who rose to power in Syria on the death of bloody-handed daddy, Hafez al-Assad.
Bad-boy Bashar served as a physician in daddy’s army and then attended a school of ophthalmology in London, which must have endeared him to the French-speaking Kerry, ever in search of a global test.
Kerry now is the head of the let’s-punish-Bashar crowd — and after he and missus curled up for a cozy dinner with the Assads.
It’s almost like an episode of “Pretty Little Liars,” only without the prettiness or charm but all the malevolence.
While we’re remembering the super senators, let’s not forget Nancy Pelosi, who defied Bush to suck up to Bashar back in 2007.
Now this triple threat wants Bashar to get a taste of the bomb. Not exactly constant as the North Star, our wannabe world-beaters working with and for the Obama administration.
And now they want Congress to sanction their Syrian adventures.
There’s no sign, though, that there’s any reason to think that there will any conversions in this crowd on the road to Damascus.
