This could potentially get out of control and start WW3 REAL fast. Our interests in Syria are opposed to that of a unified China and Russia who are growing more powerful. They are starting to push back. We're arming *&^% Al Qaeda. Think about that.

    Bush was called a "reckless cowboy" and he had our allies at his back, congressional approval and also UN approval. The UN in this instance is intervening because of Obama's actions and telling the US to stand down. They need time.

    We have no business being in Syria. We had no business being in Libya. These are Obama's wars. We are seeing the fruits of Obama and Hillary's foreign policy failures. So now Obama is acting like a dictator, bypassing Congress and marching warships and planes to Syria. Under what authority does he have to do this? When was war declared? Did anyone get a vote on whether we should go to war with Syria or not?

    I don't really care what game you are trying to play here. Whatever it is, it's not working.
    Biden said that was an impeachable offense.

    Please provide a link. I've seen Biden state that if Bush bombed Iran without congressional approval he'd move for impeachment but I've never seen anything where US foreign policy should be dictated by the UN.

    Well one minute you are saying the Republicans are saying no. But then the Neo Cons want to attack Syria and help the rebels. But then Sarah palin and the Tea party say stay out. Now Trump and his people say we should stay out. So which is it that you are trying to put the blame on.

    Oh and its the Same with the Democrats. Some saying Don't attack others saying attack. Got any blame to round there?

    Heya Pete.....do ya got a link on that. Cameron wont throw in the towel that easy will he? Not with France puffing away.

    Ya know France called for action in Africa at the same time. What do you think about France always calling for action somewhere?

    Prime Minister Cameron was probably hoping and expecting that a vote would see the majority of the Security Council support the resolution against Russian and Chinese opposition. That way, Russia and China would be isolated and the U.S./Western military operation would be promoted as enjoying international "legitimacy." What might have happened is that, at least for now, it became clear that the resolution would not command majority support. At least some nations that might be inclined to support it are probably waiting for the UN team to finish its work and report back on its findings. Of course, none of this precludes a military operation.
