This whole Syria thing has spawned an army of armchair foreign policy experts who are not afraid to savage sitting leaders in pursuit of their own rhetorical amusement.

Secretary of State John Kerry is getting a taste of their wrath right now.
Online critics have launched a #JohnKerryWarMovies thread in which they float titles for fictional flicks lampooning the former lawmaker’s ongoing efforts to line up enough congressional votes to support President Barack Obama’s planned attack against Bashar al-Assad.
The combative creations include:
An homage to Francis Ford Coppola’s seminal contribution to the horrors of war genre
Those who would demean the man’s marriage
Devotees of antisocial cartoons
Acolytes of Quentin Tarantino
Johnny Knoxville fans
There’s even a nod to the poor man’s “Top Gun”
