The Russians swoop in and get Syria to agree to a chemical weapons ban and save President Barack Obama's imminent defeat in Congress and no doubt many hundreds of lives.

It makes me wonder what kind of foreign policy and caliber of diplomacy and diplomats we have in this administration.

I am so glad we have term limits on the presidency. Now we need term limits on every elected official and just maybe we can have a country of the people, for the people and by the people before we all have to learn Russian and Chinese.
