    The UN and WB doesn't bribe the islamofascists, they bribe the more normal people (most of any population). Iran bribes the islamofascists. We will win.

    The islamofacists then in turn intimidate the normal people into doing what they want.

    That kind of thinking got us into the mess called Iraq.

    Then you have 0bama claiming their isn't enough money in the USA to open White House for tours or the annual easter Egg hunt, USDA meat inspectors to prevent salmonella outbreaks, and now he will have to find Syrian Red Line $$$ or will he let them find their own way like those US military vets that wanted a college education ?
    Hopefully this will be an isolated incident or a handling error instead of an escalation.
    I think he will find the money to attack Syria if he wanted to. Our congressional majority loves a good war. Their defense contractor masters makes LOTS of money off them. I'm sure they wouldn't give Obama too much trouble.

    If you mean that waging total war againist Afghanistan and Iraq would have ended the wars sooner, then I think you have no idea how ignorant of the consequences of such a policy. Total war means letting go of all restraints and allowing for us to bomb cities at will. That is great if you know that the entire country is your enemy. That was not the case with Iraq and Afghanistan, where our enemy's were a select minority and hid themselves amongst the civilian population using them as their sheilds. Every civilian we indiscriminately killed enraged the civilians , making them more willing to join the terrorists cause.

    History has proven that total war is the only way to win. It was proven during WW2 and it was proven during the Civil War.

    It did remarkably well in S. Korea and Japan. We hadn't tried it in the mideast until Iraq.
