what is the next step in Syria?

Report as

IMHO That would depend on what Syria wants. All agreements are at their behest. We are also giving up sanctions on nuclear Iran.
So everybody wins, oh wait

There is no official "rule book" for diplomacy ... so the "next step" is whatever any nation decides to do. Whatever is guessed in the media, is just that ... a guess. Based on information they can gather from sources ... but still a guess, until some action is taken.

The next course of action has not been determined. However, there is a possibility of U.S army involvement because using chemical weapons to attack innocent civilians is a breach of international law.

My guess is that Obama will get fed-up with Assad & Putin making him & John Kerry look like a couple a nancy-boys and find an excuse to attack. After all - we ARE the 'World Police' . . . aren't we?

Obama is getting played. Don't think he has what it takes to handle this. The next course of action is...we don't know cause even Obama can't decide. Remember, just a few days ago the Russia president and Syria said that they didn't even have chemical weapons. Now all the sudden Russia is saying they will watch the chemical weapons for US. Wait, I thought he didn't have any? Who knows, but the lack of leadership is showing.

I agree, but even if he wasn't 'getting played' by Assad & Putin - I think he was genuinely surprised that he was unable to convince the American people that an attack (of any kind) was a good idea. The Syrian War is a 'No Win Situation' for us.

If he wanted to attack he had full power and capability when Assad first used the gas.
Report as
True, but he hesitated. As a Senator in Illinois - he had the opportunity to vote on over 100 State Senate Bills and voted 'Present' (neither 'Yes' or 'No') on almost all of them - so his decision-making track record is questionable.

Agreed

Thought we learned from the Bush administration. There was proof that Sadam had chemical weapons, we took so long that Sadam was able to get rid of them. Most going to Syria. Look, it's like I tell my kids. I only tell them once and then that causes an action. Whatever that might be. When our president drew this red line, the minute it was broken he should have done something. Instead he made a mistake, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6 and a half, 7, 8 and a half, 8 and three quarters... see my point. I agree that we should have no interest in the middle east. The way we do that is to start producing our own resources. "Frakking". Or, we can continue this and keep going to war. Can't have it both ways.

That was George H.W. Bush (the '1st Bush'), and his decision to let the U.N. handle the task. And you're right - the majority of Iraq's SCUD missiles were on mobile launchers that were sent to Jordan & Syria along with their chemical weapons.
Report as
It was the second Bush also. 2 and a half years of trying to go through the UN. I know someone that was over there. As we was coming from one side, Sadam was taking the weapons by the truck load to Syria. Anyways, potato, patato, it's done now. Either way, our lack of leadership now is embarrassing.

Embarrassing to say the least! Obama and Kerry are like Seinfeld and Kramer, good for a laugh but seriously they not only make themselves look like jokers who can't get their lines right but they make the whole country look bad and I'm not liking that!!
Report as
He has been making our country look bad. It's just getting worse! LOL Like you said good for a laugh, but pretty sad when we have a Russian President telling the US what it should and should not do. Not sure if you have seen that clip... Keep swallowing the pill America!! Not funny. Here in a few, our great grandkids maybe speaking Chinese or Russian. Also, not funny.

Russia not America now owns this conflict it is Putin who is on the hook now

Actually, as soon as Obama threatened to launch Cruise Missiles on Syrian weapon sites - it put us on 'the hook'. We can't just say "We were just kidding" without looking weak. Personally - I wish Obama had either attacked or shut-up, and I prefer the latter.
Report as
Putin doesn't want the Chechen to get a hold of those chemical weapons so he has some skin in the game. But if this is a ploy then Obama will have to strike their sites.

Why?

Because it's not the responsibility of the United States to become involved in the civil war of another country.

Back when the rebels were gaining strength, when there were defections from the Syrian Army and the moderates looked like they might win, we did nothing. We may have talked like we were going to arm them, but we didn't. Russia saw this, and doubled down in support of Assad. Al Qaida saw it, and decided to bring in foreign fighters to take advantage of any opportunities which might occur as Team Assad and Rebel Force beat each other into pieces. Now it's a hopeless muddle, and there is no good solution. So Obama is going to take away the sarin gas (or so he thinks) and Assad will get from him a promise not to arm or help the Rebels. The only winners are Assad and al Qaida. And Russia, because our allies have noticed we can't be relied on, and they will make back channel contact with Russia and China, and perhaps Iran.
It takes a genius with the Nobel Prize for Peace to get his foreign policy so wrong.

You're right, and he may yet win recognition for being smart and letting someone else take point. But the lack of leadership is noted by others, and even in New York Times has commented on it.

I don't know but I don't agree with the President's idea about striking Syria. Many innocent people have been killed already. Why terrorize them all the more? The Christians need our prayers for safety. Those innocent victims are giving their lives for their faith.

It's the rebels who are causing the uprising. They are the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qeada. Assad, although he is Muslim, was allowing religious freedom. The Brotherhood and aQ want to take away all freedom from Christians and rule the country by Sharia Law. The rebels are the ones who used the chemical weapons as well as the other things they are doing. It's not all in the news. The media doesn't report on everything. They only say what is "politically correct" according to the president's specifications. Never before has the president had control over the media. If that were so, they wouldn't have bashed Bush constantly.

The gas weapons are to be taken by the U.N. and destroyed. Pray for the survival of all Christians! Eph. 6:18, Heb. 13:3.

Whatever it may be, it appears to me that we will be on the sidelines as an observer while Russia and Assad make the decisions. The UN, as usual, will do nothing to help get the issue resolved . It seems as if Pres. Obama has at least in part, achieved his goal of getting the US relegated to second or third string instead of taking the role of leader of the free world. Whether this is good or not is yet to be determined. I expected Mr. Obama to take a stance as a leader rather than a follower of Putin's orchestrated sham! As pointed out earlier, he did win the Nobel peace prize as a result of his diplomatic skills!
