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.
