    So we should engage on another 10 year nation building? You're not going to get away without that part unless you're willing to cede power to terrorists. That's what happened to Afghanistan in the first place.

    I'm not saying that Syria didn't get weapons from Iraq, but another big invasion and nation building....that shouldn't sound very good no matter which side of the aisle.

    No, you read me wrong - I'm not suggesting that at all - I'm simply stating that those who claimed the Iraq invasion was a fraud perpetrated on the American people and that Saddam didn't have chemical or biological weapons of mass destruction may find that much of Saddam's arsenal ended up in Syria prior to the invasion.

    The article goes on to state that BHO is "hopeful" that this will encourage Russia to downsize their nuclear arsenal. Riiight! Russia can always be counted on to do what they claim...

    The article also references BHO's statement...which was made when he didn't realize it was live...that he would have more freedom to act on things during his second term...So here we go, boys and girls...apparently more surprises on tap... :

    We could just do Iran. That would take care of Syria, Lebanon and Gaza as well, not to mention African terrorism.

    It's very possible. Hard to prove, but possible. Not sure what to with that information 10 years down the road, though.

    Compared to Iran, Iraq was a walk in the park.

    If and when Assad falls and someone new takes over, if it is a regime friendly towards the US, it will be relatively easy to secure and examine Syria's chemical and biological weapons and the source of those weapons will be easily discovered as well - if they are Saddam's, it will be revealed. It was in Syria's interests not to let the source be known.

    Can you come up with something doable?
    How about taking a stab at more than criticism ...
    The question is more important than the answer!

    That's possible when it's all over. But it ain't over yet.
