    There is a difference in sending arms and not troops. Why is it OK for Russia and Iran to be involved and not us?

    Police it? No, just do something when such a tragedy like this occurs.

    Yes indeed. It worked out really well in Vietnam didn't it? Would you send grunts into Syria?

    Policemen are bodies not weapons. We must not let others overpower the will of the people of Syria, it sets a terrible precedent.

    No and it is not even being discussed.

    What is the 'will' of the people in Syria? Are the people those who identify annd support al-Qaida? We let others overpower the will of the people in this country. Abortion for convenience comes to mind. The precedent of overpowering the will of people was set long ago...thousands of years ago.

    I've heard that story before. We were only going to send advisors. Recall?

    The Russians say the administration is lying about Syrian chemical weapons.

    That does not mean that this time will be the same. Learning from history is not out of the question is it?

    The Russians probably sold them the Sarin. The Russians are only interested in cash now. They have "embraced" the worst of capitalism.
