What in the world is going on out there? How is it possible that a man the entire world hated and wanted to see gone is now dictating terms to us? We are the leader of the free world. We are the planet’s only superpower. We are the embodiment of liberty, justice and possibility in a dark and dangerous world. We are the United States of America and Bashar al Assad is a monster from a backwater desert nation where death and destruction are the order of the day… yet somehow he gets to tell us what to do? How does this even remotely make sense?
President Barack Obama.
Oh. Now I see.
