    Sure, just as well as we "confirmed" Assad carried out a chemical attack. Let me ask you, who has to say that the rebels fired on the UN inspectors in order for YOU to accept it as confirmed?

    Yeah that's what Assad said and did.....after the Russians set the whole thing up. While the Rebels refused to go to a Peace Conference. Stating no Alawites in the Future of Syria.

Its so we can punishing Assad for using Chems. Even tho then we would have to go punish those Sunni Rebels for using them.....huh?

    See how the French can't think beyond the words that come out of their mouths.

    But Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., an influential voice on military matters, pressed the administration to go further, calling for the U.S. and its allies to provide weapons to "the resistance on the ground."

    "The important part of this whole situation is, is this just going to be just a retaliatory strike that has no lasting impact or something that changes the momentum on the ground in Syria?" McCain told reporters in Mesa, Ariz., after an event on immigration reform.

    Tuesday, a fifth guided-missile destroyer, the USS Stout, also entered the Mediterranean, through the Straights of Gibraltar, but officials said it wouldn't take part in any cruise missile attack.

    "The four destroyers now in place have more than enough cruise missiles," one official said.

    Some U.S. allies, notably Britain, have signaled that a limited strike could take place without Security Council approval. But Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said it would be a "very grave violation of international law," and China said through its government-run news service that the U.S. must refrain from "hasty armed intervention.".....snip~

    Military strikes on Syria 'as early as Thursday,' US officials say - World News

    Edit.....that 5th Destroyer.....is in case Assad has any Russian P800 missiles. It is a ship killer. One Strike!

    Now what happens if Assad sinks one of our Ships.....for attacking him without a UN Resolution?
    The timing is perfect for making the debt "ceiling" debate and the Benghazi anniversary into minor background noise - the front page will be Syria, U.S. miliatry "victories" and, better yet, lots of very patriotic flag waiving. Obama is all about politics and this is the perfect situation - a "war" without any of those nasty "preconditons" like even a clear goal or "boots on the ground". Naturally, if we did nothing, for another 30 months, then the "Syria situation" (whatever that is) would have destroyed the U.S. economy.

    And using NATO as a guise for a civil war that has nothing to do with a member nation? Whats that guy been drinking for lunch?
    Looks like the UN Sec General.....has told Obama, Cameron, and Hollandaize Sauce just where the UN is standing on this.

    Well here is what this professor is saying. Still how does Obama justify 820k per tomahawk with the military already being depleted. Which he will then have to replace what he fires. Hows that help us economically in that area. This is a big mistake. Syria or Russia can start **** elsewhere. But one thing is for certain. Russia is just luving getting us into this Proxy war. We lose credibility if we do something and if we don't.

    Yet we need to know who all the players are and who wont be round. Which we can't stop Syria from splitting into 3 separate regions. As they are already doing.

    Local Expert: Firing Cruise Missiles At Syria Would Be ‘Drive-By Shooting’

    We’re merely gonna to what I would call a drive-by shooting and will do some damage to the Syrian forces but it won’t shift the balance of power on the ground at all,” said Mearsheimer.

    So he’s suggesting retaliatory strikes by the U.S. be delayed, perhaps permanently.....snip~

    and here was me thinking the civil war broke out on the back of the Arab spring with protesters demanding the resignation of President Bashar al-Assad, whose family has held the presidency in Syria since 1971.....

    Whats to confirm.....the UN people said they were traveling thru the areas held by the Rebels. What were they going to say somehow Assad's people got down in there and infiltrated them just to take a high risk shot at the UN Investigators?
