    Ask Clinton, Obama and Bush Admin.. they looked the other way in Africa.

    Why on Earth would any country listen to what our lying, murderous government has to say? We told Gaddafi in 2003 that if he gave up his WMD program that we wouldn't invade and we would "allow" him to stay in power.

    The best thing any country can do to prevent US imperialist aggression is to get their hands on WMD. North Korea knows that. They see what we did with Gaddafi, tell me why on Earth Kim would even entertain the idea of listening to the United States? That would be suicide.

    Syrian use of chemicals weapons will be a really really really naughty thing and will force the US to scold them and publicly denounce that action...
    And what gives our government the right to judge Syria again?

    Our government shouldnt make stupid statements they cant/wont back up. Its as bad as the French and Germans stating they will ensure North Korea will never develop nuclear weapons.

    I agree, we should stop threatening every nation all together and just come home.

    My personal preference is to stay out of that part of the world all together. It's obvious to me that we are not wanted. but I also understand the train of thought that we should help others who are oppressed because we can.

    Ask the President, as he's the one who committed US involvement if chemical weapons were used.

    Funny.

    Obomba will lob 112 cruise missiles at Libya on our opening day attack, saying that protesters are being harmed, but do nothing about Syria using WMD?

    It really would be nice to know where his loyalties really lie.

    Now don't get me wrong, I think we should stay out of this Syria thing. It just seems he is doing what he can to support radical rebellions.
