    It must be difficult to live in such fear. Are you really that afraid?

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Greetings, MMC.
    I would agree the Burden of Proof is on us to prove that Assad gave such an Order.....but one thing is for sure. We shouldn't trust anything the Syrian Rebels has coming out of their mouths. These guys are so Desperate they would sell one of their own family members out to get their way.

    Yeah, I can remember back to Eisenhower and JFK during the heighth of the cold war. Some were saying, "Only if we destroyed all our nuclear weapons, the USSR and us would be friends, it is the threat of us attacking the USSR that keeps us from being friends." Yeah, right, we all would be speaking Russian today if we had done that.
    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.

    Putting words in your mouth?

    Did you not say that you think those trucks going into Syria had Saddam's WMD?

    or did I just misinterpret your point?

    What's the chance Syrian rebels used gas on their own in order to force US involvement?

    The rebels are going to win. It's Asad who's desperate.

    You're right. He could invade,occupy a country, spend lives and money, only to be wrong, which would be Bush like without the republican praise.

    Anyway, you're not answering my question either.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Much like American troops are often told they are fighting for "freedom," Soviet troops were told that they were fighting for the worldwide communist revolution -- which they associated with freedom as well.
    Soviet troops knew they weren't fighting for freedom...LOL!!!
