    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Yes, clearly this charge is being led by the left at this point. But, the neocons (which by no means represent the entire GOP) are now, and were the first and from the beginning, pressing for military action in Syria.

    I couldn't read your sarcasm, do you mean they haven't the desire to, or haven't the capability?

    No capability at this point.
    Funny how these "threats" come and go. Wasnt Irans nuke program going to end it all and wipe us out?
    I clearly remember 5 years ago they were "with in 10 years of developing a bomb, then all of a sudden they were one year away.
    That was 2 years ago.
    Now not a peep about the Iran nuke program. I guess especially since they cant seem to get a rocket more than 500 feet in the air.
    Must be using some of that NK tech they bought. Hahaha
    Point being, just what the f do we need to get involved in Syria for? Is there an up side to the US? I doubt it.

    Well, the correction is warranted, sadly.
    Who chimes "No Absolutes!" chimes absolutely.

    I was suggesting that the argument that we dare not strike syria because we might anger the Islamists is a bit.... late.

    It doesn't matter what anybody else does anywhere else. Since we are now going down that path, wait and see. Riots in the streets are not our problem. Terrorism is.

    Your advocacy for non intervention does not condone portraying Assad as a benign autocrat. He's turned Lebanon into a **** hole that is a security risk for Israel (you know, those terrorists in Hezbollah) and (along with his father) has been responsible for the murder of unarmed protesters.

    I don't believe anybody on this board that is against US military action in Syria is staunch supporters and admirers of al Assad. You can be one without being the other I would hope you know. Aside the fact that Syria under Assad, far from idealistic, is a far cry better than it will be under the terrorist insurgents who are plagued with infighting and damn sure wont agree on a post Assad leadership, A and B, the US has evolved a long way from our constitutional authority of ONLY attacking a country in response to an attack on ourselves. WHY, do so many people support our insane foreign policy of recent years?
