Just because a deal was reportedly reached in Geneva between the US and the Russians over Syrian Chem-WMD, doesn't mean it can be executed. Even if Assad gives the US the roadmap to all his stockpiles, (doubtful) doesn't mean they will be gone overnight.
Here's the pertinent question: How in the world can these weapons of mass destruction be taken out and destroyed during the country's civil war? Who will get in there and do that job?
We've been assured the US will have "no boots on the ground" doing that, says the Administration... So, riddle me this: who will? And in the meantime, Assad stalls---perhaps for years.
Check out the podcast of "The Terry Gilberg Show" 9-14-13 (to the left) to get my take. You can leave your comments below.
Given the new develoment by Putin and the Russians to work with Assad and the Syrians to dispose of all Syrian CHEM-WMD into an undisclosed place, what faith do you have in the Russians honestly doing this?
It appears that if Obama can use this development as an "out" (or rather the "White-Out" to his Red Line), then he can save face from the egg on his face over the red line ultimatum, especially if Congress gives him a "No" on strikes.
Why should/would we trust the Russians to do this, (remembering our ice cold relationship with them), and of late, their harboring NSA's Snowden, among other things....?? The Russians say they don't want war in the Middle East--I believe that, and frankly, who does?--but will they be honest brokers and get rid of these Chem-WMD, or is this a snow job, a ruse? If so, how will it happen, who will inspect for certainty (other than the Russians), and will Americans get the true scoop? Give me your comments below.
I recently attended the Americans for Prosperity Economic Summit in Orlando, Florida discussing solutions to the nation's problems and learning more about our vexing national issues like immigration, education, transportation, energy.
Heard Governor Bobby Jindal and Senator Marco Rubio speak to the value of free markets, and defending the American dream. American Enterprise Institute's Arthur Brooks just spoke to never giving up. In break-out sessions, we're discussing the Food Stamp Fraud story in Arizona that just broke and how best to combat this theft of the taxpayer.

On 8-17-13, I interviewed a Living Master Artist, Ed Copley, who is the great-great-great-grandson of the iconic American portrait artist John Singleton Copley. Copley Square in Boston is named after John Singleton. When Ed heard of the Boston Bombing, he decided to lend his hand and heart to help the victims who lost limbs. He decided to paint his version of John Singleton's famous painting "Watson and The Shark" (which hangs in the National Gallery in Washington D.C.).
In the 1778 painting, a shark bites off 14-year old Brook Watson's foot, as he is swimming in Havana Harbor, Cuba (a true story).
When Ed's painting is finished, it will be auctioned off in Copley Square to the highest bidder and all proceeds will go to help the victims. The relationship between the sharks in the water biting off Watson's limb and aiming to kill him is akin to homegrown terrorists who leave pressure cooker bombs that ripped off limbs and aimed to kill the Marathon runners.
I love this theme, this connection, and Ed's compassion!! Have a look at this wonderful painting in the making, and hear my interview with artist Ed Copley. Enjoy! Click here to listen.
What? The US should boycott the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi if Russia grants NSA leaker Edward Snowden asylum? Senator Lindsay Graham is misguided on this one. What do you think? Click here to read more.
Seems the GOP is getting some backbone (finally) not to put up with these networks' bias toward Hillary Clinton, who will, most likely be a presidential candidate and the heavyweight for the DEMs. Seems to me this is a smart move. Let's see if the networks poo-poo this threat, and if the GOP means what they say. Thoughts? Add in comments section. Click here to read more.
