    I guess the Syrian body count has reached a sufficient score? Way not to lead in any coherent, proactive way, #OccupyResoluteDesk!

    So he left the peaceful protestors in Tehran to die without lifting a finger to support them, but plans to give arms to Al Qaida fighters. The same fighters that have been killing Americans in Iraq for years. What a guy!

    Two days ago, the Syrian rebels executed a 14 year old boy for “insulting islam” – the kid told a customer at an outdoor cafe he wouldn’t bring him more coffee “even if the Prophet Mohammed came back to life.” The rebels heard it, took the boy away and whipped him, brought him back and made his parent watch them shoot him in the head.

    Apparently this made Obama feel a kinship with them, and he offered our money to help them locate more infidels to kill.
