Can't think of a reason they wouldn't go to war against us with missiles too - here and abroad - unless you think Syria couldn't get SAM missiles into a situation to shoot down USA airliners anywhere at all in the world.

    I'm using the stats on the Stinger compared to that of the Tomahawk. I don't know what the Syrians may have in the hand held area. The Tomahawk flies at about 500. The Stinger can reach 1500 mph. IOW, the Stinger can easily run down a Tomahawk with a line of sight shot. The operator would have to be in the right place at the right time, but it could be done. True, it certainly isn't strategic or even tactical, but it's possible.

    NO... strike that...

    they liked to rant about getting permission from the UN. Remember John F-ing kerry? Felonious Bill Clinton did just that... he wagged his finger (and the dog) and outsourced our national security to the UN on Iraq 12 to 14 times at least.

    Just would like to see the anti-Amerikan Left uphold their own standards, like any decent lawyer would demand when negotiating on behalf of their client.

    It just dawned on me what you guys mean when you say Obama (or anyone that is not far right) is antiAmerican. You really mean he is antiRight Wing. And, since right wingers arent really Americans anymore, now they are republicans, you guys just say he is AntiAmerican. I get it.

NO... strike that... that always ranted about getting permission from the UN. Remember John F-ing kerry? Felonious Bill Clinton did just that... he wagged his finger (and the dog) and outsourced our national security to the UN on Iraq 12 to 14 times at least.

    You can't compare Iraq to Syria...
    We bombed the hell out of Iraq and indirectly caused the deaths of up to 1 million men, women, and children after we completely dismantled their system of law.
    We also lost thousands of American lives in the process.

    There are a multitude of reasons not to attack Syria. One of which is that we have no proof that the government did the chemical attack and not the rebels as the Russians so adamantly seem to suggest.
    Any attack on Syria is extremely foolish and will degrade my confidence in President Obama.
    But to compare a short term missile attack vs a long term occupation with the blood of 1 million on our hands to a Nation that did nothing to us... that is ludicrous.

    No... I mean anti-American, and someone who wants to "fundamentally change America" (his words)... means he deeply dislikes the country as founded. His actions prove so.

    Obama and a massive swath of his party are anti-American.

    You didn't get my point at all.
