    Oh btw... Al-Nusra Front fighters (defacto part in my opinion of the Syrian Free Army) were caught in May with 2kg of Sarin Gas in Turkey.

    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.

    I think we can all agree that there's no eay Obama will commit troops to the Syria affair.

    Woah, Woah.. I am just noting he's a rich SoB who while down range in the past tends to carry water. Reminds me alot of Colin Powell, who's political career was sandbagged by carrying water for Bush. Powell should have been the first black President but because he took one for the team, he's used as a tv personality now instead of actually making a difference.

    Gen. Powell is much more than you say, to the detriment of Republicans cheating on Voting Rights. He is now the conscience of a Nation and correctly predicts that new Voting Wrongs laws will backfire.

    I respect your honesty. I really do.

    It may seem odd, but I respect Dennis Kucinich for being that type of honest Leftist. I disagree with him about virtually everything, but he is the one Leftist who tells the unvarnished truth about his (and his party's) desires. From there you can have an honest discussion about differences, and the public has information it can decide on.

    Too bad you and Kucinich are the rarest of breeds among Leftists.

    Too bad there aren't more of your kind on the Left. You are a rare breed.

    You play a cute game... but that's all it is is a game.

    This is about the hypocrisy of the left. They beg for us to enter a war we have ZERO national interest in and which is in the Europeans backyard. They vote to send troops to war for political expediency (a treasonous act if you ask me), and then stab them in the back when our troops need the support most, also for political expediency.

    You complain about loss of life in the act of bringing down a despot who had 12-years and 17 UN Resolutions. A despot who had WMD, used them and were not accounted for to the satisfaction of UN Inspecteurs because as Hans Blix stated... Saddam was playing games.

    There was no public outcry for the million plus who died because we did nothing except throw meaningless sanctions against the wall, of that number 500,000 children.

    You folks are hypocrites.

    Obama laid down a thin Red Line. He has painted himself into a corner, so you better start painting those signs, practicing your chants and storing fuel to burn American flags. But alas... we know Leftists... they wrote the book on War and Hypocrisy.

    So you still think that different things are the same, and you seem to like to anthropomorphize ideology, which is funny.

    Very weak, but I see you're clinging bitterly to your lame defense of leftists protesting to have America go to war where we have no national interest and in the backyard of the brilliant Europeans, and smashing America, it's troops and its then very popular president for trying to neutralize a despot we all believed had WMD and also believed was very possible he could hand some off to terrorists.

    The Germans had a paper about the massive costs of life and commerce that would happen if a little tiny bit of Saddam's WMD was unleashed on the western world. But of course... Saddam would never have cooperated with terrorists. He was an upstanding despot that would only use WMD on his own people.
