    Sorry, the days of total war are over except on xbox and such.

    We need to encourage and support democratic progress and stability towards world development and freedom. Only when everyone is free will world war end. Personally, I find peace as an option while people suffer under tyranny to be despicable.

    Re: Poison gas missile strike in Syria

    I just hope the current administration don't go off half-cocked with bad intelligence and jump feet first into another costly war like the last one did. We STILL haven't recovered from that screw up.

    Think about it. If you were a Syrian rebel and you wanted to drag in the U.S. to help you depose the Syrian regime, how could you do it? Let loose some deadly gas and blame it on the Regime. Or, better yet, if you're a defense contractor wanting make a zillion dollars off another war, how could you get the US to get involved (other than buying off more politicians?) Pay a clandestine mercinary to let loose a few poison gas cannisters and then stand back as everyone points fingers hoping your bough and paid for politicians will take the ball and run with it. I don't doubt either scenerio.

    You folks should never forget that the pro-Syrian people as well as the Syrian rebels would like nothing more than to hang American heads on pikes.

    We don't owe them a thing. Let the cards fall where they may. We have our own issues that are more important to us than to solve the crisis of a people who would just as soon see us all hanging from trusses with our bodies in ashes. Screw them.

    We got no dog in their fight. Let 'em just kill each other off. It ain't our bitch.

    South Korea and Japan weren't over-flowing with islamofacists, either. Not to mention we bombed Japan into dust.

    The only solution to islamofacism is to kill them all and reap so much death and destruction that islamofacism becomes a dirty word, just like Nazism became a dirty word in Germany after WW2.

    The islamofacist fanatics are ready to die for their cause and I say we accomadate them every chance we get.

    Our enemy in Afghanistan and Iraq was not the country's nor its people. Our enemy did not recognize borders, nor civilans, nor terms. Terrorists do not engage in war, they may call it a war but that it is their definition, terrorists engage in acts of terror: cold, ruthless attacks that maximize damage inflicted, both physical and psychological, and whose victims include civilan and soldier alike. You cannot fight total war againist terrorism because terrorists do not believe in the concept of civilians or non combatants or neutrality, they hide among civilians as their cover and they rally support for their cause with every civilian we kill indiscrimatly.

    Nazism was not defeated merely by total war. It was defeated, finally and permanently, by the collective intellectual capability of the western world.

    I'm all for killing active terrorists. I just don't think total war is gonna accomplish that in a meaningful way.

    There's no evidence that confirms that an NBC weapon was even employed.

    According to the article, there is a huge question as to whether chemical weapons was used at all. That should be our number one priority in determining if chemical weapons was used or not before we go off half cocked.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
