Look at the picture: Putin's chair is bigger/taller but exactly the same. Poor little guy. But I agree with him more than I do our president on the Syria mess. None of our business, and we should stay the heck out of is before we "accidentally" arm Al Q... again.

Rest assuredly, Assad is a dictator, however the US has supported far worse and with the alternative of having the Islamist take over, it would be far worse not only for us but for the people of Syria. Ain't no easy solution to this mess. Either way its going to end badly and bloody. Let it play out and stay out.
