4. A political realist in an irrational world........??????????
Has there ever been an individual in the guise of the President of the USA that has so used and abused his twisted sense of self righteousness the consequence of which has caused such tragedy...his incompetence deserves to be held up as how not to to use power and in fact his inaction are grounds for being taken to the ICC. Putin at least understands the consequences of his brutal support of the tyrant Assad whereas Obama has head in the clouds of inconsequence except for that which impacts upon the Syrian people who were relying on him for some justice...some hope!!
