The Obama administration and its sycophants in the media–which is to say, nearly all of the members of the mainstream press–claim it was the president’s “credible military threat” that brought the Russians and the Syrians “to the table.” Wow, they must really think we have short memories! This week Mr. Obama had neither the votes in Congress nor the will of the people for his threatened strike, which John Kerry promised would be “unbelievably small” anyway. No,the only reason Vladimir Putin came to the table was because it was to his advantage.
