    Re: Navy ready to launch first strike on Syria

    Unless America is ready to go to war with Russia attacking Syria would not be wise.

    This is another Bay of Pigs in a sense. This is a USSR/USA showdown.

    I hope cooler heads prevail.

    To be fair, I have heard just as much sensible dialog arguing against the idea, that it was the Syrian government that gassed the people, as I have suggesting they did. We all know what happens when we go in half-cocked on faulty intel.

    And I see the same old faces trying to sell us this war that sold us the last 2.

    I thought Obama was supposed to be the "cool, collected" president with the big brain. Time will tell.

    But folks, here's the big one. This will be one doozey of a war.

    Most likely, Russia will just use Syrian blood for the war. They will just make sure they have all they need to do as much damage to the US. Then when we come out of it bloody and bruised with our stocks depleted..... check mate.

    I don't know why people aren't looking past their nose on this but we have seen it happen before.

    How many children do you have to offer up? Mine are all grown. My grand kids won't be old enough for at least 10 years. I'm thinking about just taking the tax hits and cashing in my life investments. Maybe get a small home near the beach with a boat slip around Tarpon Springs.

    They say you can't fix stupid. Sometimes I just think it is our American destiny to be stupid. Look at our cities. Look at our leaders. Look at neighbors demonizing neighbors.

    I believe I'm just going to let the cards fall where they may and spend my days fishing for speckled trout and redfish.

    Will we see protests in the streets?

    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?
    I have never supported a war. I was neutral about Kosova because it was a approaching a genocidal situation.

    I´ll be writing letters, posting opinions and protesting etc against this war. Nothing good can come from it.

    Yep Cap.....Russia would luv nothing more than to get us into this War. They know exactly how it is going to hit us and they know we cant just up and industrialize like before. That we are stretched thin now.

    Which then if Russia jumps in.....then we know Iran and all their talk will come once they know the Big Bear is committed totally. Which doesn't even count China. Or N. Korea starting something then.

    Ding. Ding. Ding.

    Seriously, how easy was that to figure out?

    They are leading us around like we have a nose ring. And look how many idiots are ready to, "GO OVER THAR AND KICK THAR ASS!"

    Can't fix stupid. I give up.

    You didn't mention Israel either and how Obama might use them. Or the centuries old hatred between India and Pakistan.

    And so the Shias and Sunnis finally get to blow up the world.

    Sen. McCain wants more than cruise missiles while back-handing Obama in public.

    Even sensible Sen. Coburn mentions impeachment since his fellow Oklahoma Sen. Inhofe had already committed on the subject.

    Well, it would help if our people wouldn't listen to the French on this and those Rebels with their MB backing.....since the French want to keep pushing the issue. Let the French go take the Russians and Assad on. That way we can tell them again.....ya just don't have what it takes. Never did. But be our guest. We will send ya some supplies.

    Yeah.....and I didn't mention Egypt, Yemen. Nor Iraq, where the Shia and Sunni are already back into assassinating each others Clerics.

    Re: Navy ready to launch first strike on Syria

    I didn't realize that Reagan/Bush-41 ignored what Saddam did to his Kurds in 1988, and that was close to 5,000 dead. I smirk at the attempt tonight to link the WMD of Syria coming from Iraq. Where did Iraq get them originally?
