    It's incompetent and arrogant at the same time.  A very bad combination if you want to get something done in the international arena.

    We have always been at war with al Qaeda.

      this. Obama's comments in the Rose Garden, while seemingly emphatic, were strange and unlike his normal speech. I feel there's something else going on, which has me considerably more worried than whether he looks weak, incompetent or arrogant. Most confusing: Why doesn't it matter when the US actions take place? To me, that sounds more like a message to someone else than a desire to stop chemical warfare. Just wanted to throw that out there.
