    Intercepted phone calls prove Assad regime behind chemical attacks

    The US intelligence services intercepted phone calls amongst members of the Assad regime which prove the regime was responsible. Now, please can we put this silly conspiracy theory nonsense that the opposition did it to rest? (Of course the answer to that is going to be "No!", but I can dream can't I? )

    So many things we hear and read are White House and/or MSM lies that it is very difficult to accept "Proof" of anything without some sort of firsthand confirmation.

    Every hour, I am more convinced that we do need to intervene. But how we are going to do that without causing some serious tension in international politics is beyond me. For that reason alone, I still favour abstaining.

    So, explain away the evidence against a conspiracy theory with more conspiracy theory! My God, man, that's brilliant!

    As I understand it the upcoming strikes are mostly going to be punitive - they are not intended to necessarily influence the outcome of the war in Syria. The strategic aims are much broader than simply the outcome of the civil war - namely to discourage continued escalation of chemical weapon attacks by Assad (or any nation for that matter) and, probably more importantly, to send a message to Iran regarding the US's willingness to resort to military force.

    I still favour abstaining but I understand that perfectly. My opinion can and almost certainly will almost certainly change as new information emerges. The days to come will reveal a lot to us, me thinks.

    Aren't these the same people who determined that Iiraq was teeming with WMD's?

    Even if this is true we still don't belong in Syria

    We're not the world police. Obama needs to get congressional approval before deploying troops and using force.

    If he attacks Syria without Congressional approval he should be impeached immediately
