White House Chief of Staff calls “victory” what I would call vanilla

Once again, the Administration revealed that it is just not serious about Syria (Corner):

White House chief of staff Denis McDonough defined success for American intervention in Syria as deterring the Syrian regime from using chemical weapons again, rather than changing the balance of forces in the country’s ongoing civil war. Overthrowing the Assad regime is an “issue for Syrians to resolve,” he told NBC’s David Gregory on Sunday.

“Victory in this targeted effort means that he is degraded from doing it again, that deterred from doing it again,” McDonough said.

As Jerry Fuhrman would say…For the Love of God.

Folks, if Assad survives, he wins. If you’re not willing to get rid of him, this is a waste of time.

  1. Why is the word “victory” so anathema to this generation of the Democratic Party’s foreign policy elite?

  2. Sounds like a great goal to me……..and Obama’s careful deliberation appears to be giving great dividends…………we get the weapons away from Assad and we dont have to kill anyone …………….Assad can have his country blown to smithereens to the tune 0pf $30 billion, or he can surrender the weapons!!
