Breaking: Climbdown complete — Obama agrees to UN debate on Putin plan

posted at 11:06 am on September 10, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

Just a day ago, Barack Obama planned to lay out his case for taking military action against Syria in a prime-time address this evening.  Instead, he’ll have to explain why he’s suddenly interested in the United Nations track, which his administration disparaged just last week as “hocus pocus” and “paralyzed.”

Smart power!

Suddenly, it seems that the White House is more interested in diplomacy than shooting missiles at Damascus:

White House chief of staff Denis McDonough told Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday that diplomacy, rather than military action, is the priority on Syria now, U.S. Representative Gene Green said.

“We’re going to wait and see how this offering” for securing Syria’s chemical-weapons arsenal plays out, Green told Reuters as he left a briefing by McDonough for House Democrats.

What does that mean for tonight’s speech?  Inquiring minds want to know:

Jennifer Rubin has an idea:

Maybe, the president should start his remarks by saying, “You can forget just about everything I’ve said up until now . . . ” But then again no one really believes much of anything he has to say these days.

It’s the Emily Litella strategy:

Smart power.

Update: More from the AP via HuffPo:

A White House official says President Barack Obama has agreed to discussions at the United Nations Security Council on a proposal from Russia to secure Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles.

The official says Obama discussed the proposal Tuesday with French President Francois Hollande (frahn-SWAH’ oh-LAWND’) and British Prime Minister David Cameron. France’s foreign minister says France will float a resolution in the U.N. Security Council aimed at forcing Syria to make public its chemical weapons program, place it under international control and dismantle it.

Russia arranges it, France proposes it, and … we lead from behind.  Brilliant, I tell you, brilliant.

Update: A couple of thoughts I shared on Twitter:

So much for Munich moments.  And hey, peace in our time, or something.

Update: More from Will Cain:

Indeed.

Update: One or two commenters seem a little lost on my sarcasm over the Munich comments. I’ve argued all along that the Syria crisis is no Munich, and that the claims from Kerry and the Obama administration that it’s analogous to 1938 were historically ignorant and hyperbolic.  However, if they really believed it, then walking away with a rather dubious and practically unenforceable agreement as a resolution is almost a perfect repetition of it. (Don’t forget that Hitler ally Benito Mussolini was the guarantor of the Munich agreement, paralleling Putin’s role here.) It’s just missing Neville Chamberlain’s umbrella.

Ah, but… they do. There are those – some of them among us like a plague – that *will* and *do* believe *everything* he says, even if he says the exact opposite in the next sentence.

Whatever he wants them to believe – whatever they want to believe in order to continue to believe in *him* – is what they will believe, and try their damndest to help the rest of us believe as well.

You almost have to wonder, given the hard progressive left’s dislike for the US and core American values, the desire of this President to remake the US image abroad, if this isn’t just being naive and incompetent, but all part of the agenda of this President to weaken the US to facilitate ‘fundamental change’.

Almost exactly six years ago Israel destroyed Syria’s nuclear plant. There was no need for threats or discussions, and Syria didn’t retaliate or even acknowledge what happened.

America might not be able to pull the same operation due to practical problems, but this is what Israel did when it saw a threat to its national interests.

If Syria would have had a nuclear bomb right now, things would have been much different for Israel, but also for America and Europe. Obama certainly wouldn’t have drawn ‘red lines’ and nobody would talk about defending human rights or preventing Assad from gassing his own people.

This is far from a political ‘win’ for the President. They are so desperate that they are grabbing at anything that remotely resembles a life preserver.

Obama’s already significantly damaged by his mismanagement and mishandling of foreign policy in the region, and his fecklessness regarding Syria, doublespeak on red lines, and the dismal messaging around the ‘debate’ over a response to Syria’s 14th or 15th crossing of the red line that wasn’t Obama’s red line, has burned a massive amount Obama’s political capital.

Add these clusterfarks with continued anemic economic results and more Obamacare messaging disasters, and you have a President who is nearly done only 9 months into his second term.

He is, and always has been, a laughably unqualified Marxist buffoon. He has no core beliefs besides America is evil. The media has always covered for him and always will. He can do or say anything he pleases with no consequences at all from either the press or the GOP.

The fact that he has three more years to destroy this nation makes me weep for my children. When the history of the US demise is written it will be determined that a media coup occurred in 2008 while America slept allowing the Marxist to destroy the US economy and then the country itself.

No, I don’t think that’s what they’ll do. More likely they’ll turn over 5% of their chemical weapons, say, “That’s all of them! Nothing more to see here, folks!”, and keep the other 95% in hiding. Then, if Assad is smart, he’ll stick to killing civilians with conventional weapons. “Don’t worry, we’re not using anything nuclear, chemical, or biological. Everybody here was killed with guns and bombs!”

Many of the facts we might cite about Munich, 1938, Chamberlain (i.e., historical lessons) are lost on so many Americans. Many, but not all of them, are ardent supporters of the President.

Will Cain – and others – are missing the point about our President. He and his pals are experts at slipping away from an embarrassment like this one. They are Lefties and opportunists first and always. They don’t believe, and they won’t allow this event to be perceived as one in which their ‘Hack-iness’ was relied upon by the superior manipulator – that’s Mr. Putin. The only spin will be how wise and considerate they were. Expect Hillary Clinton to try to spoon off some of that same gravy. She’ll probably talk incessantly about ‘resetting a reformer.’

Always keep in mind their target audience: Americans whose interest in having fun and being free blinds them to the essential nature of the world they live in.

Key West Reader on September 10, 2013 at 12:27 PM

Of course, the UN will have to put together a team of international representatives for Assad to turn the chemical weapons over to. If the team consists of representatives from, say, Poland, Australia, and Israel, that’s one thing. If the team consists of representatives from Cuba, Iran, and North Korea, that’s another thing. The only thing we can be sure of is that the team will definitely not consist of representatives from Poland, Australia, and Israel.

They are all stupid – operation pinprick

John Kerry attempted to clarify one of his recent gaffes that military action in Syria would be “unbelievably small” by emphasizing the intervention’s strength. In accordance with President Obama’s comments from interviews last night, he explained that the engagement in Syria would be small, but only compared with previous military action in other countries.

“Compared to Iraq, Kosovo, Libya, it’s small — it is not any of those things,” the secretary said at the House Armed Services Committee hearing on Tuesday morning. “That doesn’t mean it would be anything less than what I’ve suggested previously, and the military has suggested, that Assad will know — we don’t do pin pricks.”

The president and his secretary of state have repeatedly said that Assad’s use of chemical weapons violates an “international norm.” They insist it is critical that we send a “message” to Assad that his behavior is unacceptable. But it is not the job of U.S. troops to police international norms or to send messages. Our men and women in uniform have signed up to defend America.

Another interesting OT that reflects poorly on the Obama Administration…..

…This is what happens when the Bureau of Labor Statistics is caught in a lie / cooking the books….

This means that either the JOLTS survey is substantially under-representing the net turnover of workers, or that once the part-time frenzy in the NFP data normalizes, the monthly job gains will plunge to just over 100K per month to “normalize” for what has been a very peculiar upward “drift” in the NFP “data.”

And just like last month we will conclude with the same advice to the BLS: when manipulating data series across dimensions, make sure the manipulations foot across, and not just in 1 dimension.

What’s worse? Being lied to or being lied to badly?

No explanation necessary.

Comrade O can use it to cover his butt and use it as an excuse to not do anything after he asserted Assad crossed his red line. Not that I want him to do anything. On the contrary I’m in the “stay out of it, they are all bad guys” camp on this one.

Considering he had no idea what to do and did not really want to do anything, but he needed a way to save face, this is a perfect fit for him.

Get the UN involved and he has a ready excuse for not doing anything for as long as a decade. See Saddam’s twelve years of shenanigans for examples on how to play hide’n seek with UN inspectors while playing the “self disarmament” delay game. I’m sure Assad will study up on that “process”.

Assad only needs a few years to either sink or swim. In that time he will either defeat the rebellion or find a retirement home in favorable climes.

Assad is never going to let his WMD’s ‘out of his hands’. The most he will agree to is to have blue helmets guarding his WMD stores in Syria, and that will only be the subset of stores that he lets us know about. He would be a fool to agree to anything more.
