Obama’s flip flop and Kerry’s lip slip over Syria

By Steven Hill, ORF (Austrian public broadcasting), September 11, 2013

My comments on Austrian public radio (ORF) re Syria: Obama’s flip flop and Kerry’s lip slip — surreal days of a flailing superpower http://fm4.orf.at/stories/1724633/.

The moment feels similar to me as December 20, 1989 — I woke up, five days before Christmas, with pretty snowflakes falling lightly to the ground, only to discover that we were at war. The US had invaded Panama just that morning. Who knows what will happen next re: Syria? Things happen out of the blue. It surely is surreal living inside a superpower.
