As Secretary of State John Kerry gave his anticipated speech on Syria, the public took to Twitter to critique his message, with varying reactions. Some found it passionate, while others were not as impressed:

- — Kareem Shaheen (@kshaheen)Fri, Aug 30 2013 10:26:13The end of Kerry's speech was as anti-climactic as these peanut butter cookies which were in the oven for an hour, taunting me.
