    Re: al Qaeda's Air Force

    I don't like knownothing isolationism, but Syria is too complex to get involved in. The last thing we need to do is support jihadists in Syria like Reagan did in Afghanistan, leading as it did to 9-11.

    The neocons are, of course, all hot to trot. There never was a military intervention they didn't like. Fortunately, Obama isn't a nitwit like Bush. He's too smart to fall for neocon demagoguery.

    What drivel. If Obama doesn't attack Syria it isn't because he doesn't plan to. The only thing stopping him would be congress or the thought of impeachment for not receiving their approval.

    Otherwise, he's attacking Syria. If he does attack you'll be rationalizing it to the amusement of many here at DP, as usual.

    I wonder if he plan to use drones? They seem to be his weapon of choice to kill people.

    Obama the Warmonger. I know that's hard to swallow but by all means, don't choke on it.

    Well we can only hope your right about Obama this time. He was clearly wrong on Libya.

    Uh, none. But does this have to do with me? My point is that the U.S. is pulling the devil's tail. There are enough Muslims and fanatics in America to make you cry a river by internal terrorist acts.

The "democracy cures everything" people have no real idea what that place would look like without autocratic rule. It will be an unmitigated disaster if the current government falls. The same Arab Spring that brought down the Egyptian government put people worse in its place. This is not an area that is fertile ground for democracy--not yet, and definitely not all at once.
    That's curious. I look at what MB did in power in Egypt and what Assad did in power in Syria and its quite clear Assad is worse.

    Is there is reason why you didn't mention Obama supporting or enemy in Libya and now in Syria? He has placed weapons in the hands of our sworn enemies but he's not a nitwit? LOL.

    And what Regan did lead to 9-11? LOL. Twist, spin, stretch, fabricate. Same tune, different day.

    We seem to be going to attack Syria with less information and even less proof of WMD's than we had when we went into Iraq...if that was possible...but this time they are in support of it....WTF? Did we just enter into an episode of the Twilight Zone?

    Is Obama going to get Congressional approval for this use of military force or is he going to be the Lone Cowboy and do what he did in Lybia and ignore Congress?
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.

    "Neocons?" Seems to me it's been the Bidens of the radical left squealing like stuck pigs to ramp up the rhetoric for a strike against Assad. You might want to revisit your spin on recent history...

    yeah. Can you imagine how awful it would be if Al Qaeda were to decide that it wanted to strike U.S. targets?

    Not true at all.
    JFK wanted out of Viet Nam, LBJ stayed and sent more troops.
    Currently, very few people think going into Syria in any fashion is a good idea.
    Yet, Obama seems hell bent on going.
