    Syria fighting rages, more chemical attacks reported

    The U.S.-Russian initiative so far appears only to have intensified the violence, especially around Qusair and Damascus.
    In Harasta, an eastern Damascus suburb largely under rebel control, dozens of people were afflicted by respiratory difficulties after an apparent overnight chemical attack, according to opposition sources. Video showed victims lying on the floor of a room, breathing from oxygen masks.

    So what happens when the President draws a red line, then ignores it? More chem attacks of course....Nothing will probably be done about this either....What a weak image Obama is projecting in that region.....Sad.

    I agree. The POTUS should never have made that statement bout drawing a red line. Now, he just looks weak and foolish.

    If we were to take sides in Syria, whose side do you think we should take?

    It's between a dictator, and a group loyal to AlQaeda.


    From USA Today:


    BEIRUT — A Syrian rebel group's pledge of allegiance to al-Qaeda's replacement for Osama bin Laden suggests that the terrorist group's influence is not waning and that it may take a greater role in the Western-backed fight to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad.

    From USA Today:
    Pshhhhh. Probably just overthrow the dictatorship, kill off the rebels, and then appoint our own dictator.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    Are all those fighting against Assad linked to AQ? I don't think you can say that with certainty....

    Then why are you sticking up for the clown that got him killed? Obama might as well have pulled the trigger, personally.

    Can we say with certainty they are not? However, it doesn't need to be all. Only a significant majority.

    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.
