Update 9/24/2013 10:50 AM: As predicted the toothless rhetoric is flowing freely out of the mouth of Barack Obama, leader of the free world, at the UN General Assembly!
President Barack Obama called Tuesday on the United Nations Security Council to pass a resolution threatening "consequences" if Bashar Assad's regime in Syria does not give up its chemical weapons.
"There must be a strong Security Council resolution to verify that the Assad regime is keeping its commitments," Obama told the United Nations General Assembly. "There must be consequences if they fail to do so."

And the obvious question is how Obama, Kerry and the rest of the incompetents on his team will screw it up?
Unfortunately for the citizens of the United States and our allies whenever an issue involves the Obama administration, foreign policy or national security the outcome is obvious and sadly predictable!
One need only look to examples such as the Arab Spring and ascendence of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Benghazi massacre of four Americans and our faltering relationship with Israel to understand that fact only too well.
My guess is that today Obama will use the diplomacy and negotiation card with Iran as the carrot to get the rouge nation to stop developing its nuclear weapons. This much is obvious!
The stick in this 'game', military action, has unfortunately been rendered irrelevant due to the Obama-Syria fiasco and the rest of the toothless rhetoric the President has uttered in his five-plus years in office!
But that will not stop the President from issuing tough words that no one, most critically Iran, will believe has any basis in fact (economic sanctions will be on the table somewhere as well).
Iran, under the guise of a new moderate government will of course accept this overture as a means to continue unfettered nuclear weapons development which is exactly what has been happening in that country for too many years.
You see, what Obama and the rest of the liberals have always failed to grasp is that terrorists and rogue nations will never stop trying to build or buy WMDs, hate the west with a passion the Left cannot seem to grasp and want us wiped off of the face of the earth.
And, perhaps most importantly, these enemies only understand and respond to strength.
Or maybe Obama and his team actually do understand and either don't give a crap or it's all part of some greater master plan which in the case of Obama is actually plausible.
