    Will we hear about the cost of such actions?

    Will we hear about how it will piss off Muslims?

    Will we hear about the leadership vacuum and who will fill it?

    Try answering the questions. You... like most leftists have a talent for deflection... as your coy little bit of chit regarding your "good deed of the day" post, and the above post illustrate.
    Well, now that we have already proven not all "the left" is the same, so your claim of hypocrisy has already failed, you still forget that different events are different, so your hypocrisy claim fails even more.

    And of course Leftists wouldn't say PEEP if Bush43 did this. ROTFLOL. I'd love to see your post if Bush43 was at the helm and this was happening.

    You see... the Leftists are hypocrites. On the one hand they vote to send troops to war, then stab them in the back for political expediency. They protest for America to enter conflicts we have no national interest in and where there is the might and brighty Europeans looking at it in their very own backyard.

    I look at this, and remember clearly the anti-American Left and their behavior. I just would like to see some consistency, or some sober reflection. BUT... this won't happen because you folks have a moral compass that is like a cartoon clock zipping around at light speed.

    I hope these Navy Tomawk cruise missiles aren't from the Clinton era. If Obama orders an attack and one of these Tomahawks ends up hitting the Russian Embassy or the Russians forward naval base at Tartus, Obama will have gotten us in a shooting war with Russia.

    And for the first time in sixty years there are more Russian warships in the Mediterranean Sea than American warships. Most of Obama's Navy is incapable to putting to sea and being able to fight.

    Why isn't there an American Carrier Strike Group in the 6th Fleet AOR ? That's right, it's Obama's PC Navy.

    A cruise missle (as used in Iraq) has a far different blast radius and is not a nuclear weapon.

    BTW...I don't support a military strike on Syria based on what I know at this time. I think it would be premature.
    LOL !! That " propaganda " started in 1998 with Clinton warning that we may have to use force if Saddam Hussein continues with his WMD escalation...

    Bush didn't lie or manipulate. Remember a lot of Demokrats came forward warning about Saddam's WMD. Remember Bob Woodward wrote in his book that George Tenet stated to Bush43 after his grilling him (that's right) that "it was a slam dunk".

    Why are they not on the Obama war band wagon as well? Why, all of a sudden, are they "anti-war?" I think we all know the answer to that.
    Who says we are not on the Obama bandwagon.
    I HAVE NOT STATED I AM AGAINST SUCH ACTION.
    What I have done is confront THE IDIOT LEFT and their previous behaviors, and asked if there would be consistency.

    War is war no matter what color the president is. One would think America would have learned it's lesson by now.
    Sometimes it is necessary. After 911 the idiots and despots of the world looked at Bush43 and wondered if he would be as weak as finger wagging Felonious Bill Clinton.

    We stopped a nuclear blackmarket, we got Libya's WMD program, and Saddam is no longer a threat to his people, the region, and the western world.

    I am sorely disappointed in Obama. He turned out to be not much better than G.W. Bush, IMO. When America, the people who elected him to represent them, is so against any action in Syria, how could Obama only hear the cries of the war dogs? This has the makings of a start to a global war. Syria is not worth it. They burn American flags over there. Remember?
    Isolationism would be ideal, but unrealistic.

    Obama's failure to lead... or that laughable phrase... lead from behind hasn't worked very well. Our enemies do not fear us and our allies do not trust us. That is Obama's doing. He is a child in a man's job.

    Not precise enough not to hit civilians. Ask the residents of the West Bank. It is all asymmetrical now.

    Nice backpedal away from implying someone supported "carpet bombing" of civilians. Are you going to apologize to that poster for that implication?
