    He also said he would not cut the NHS and many other things that he had gone ahead and done any ways.. he is a politician that certainly can not be trusted. The big question is if the Lib Dems will stick with him if he does.. if not, then it is election time, and that will be fun.

    I think you're right to question it. I'd say that until there is any hard evidence to sustain it, there's as much reason to suspect the rebels as there is to suspect the government. Both sides have been carrying out atrocious actions over the past 2 years. It would be counterproductive to attack only the government side; in fact it wouldn't be untenable to claim that by doing so you would be definitively aiding Al Qaeda.

    It would appear the US and UK citizens are a bit war-weary after the last decade, especially after both sets of citizens now know they were lied to.

    A different level of scrutiny is being used this decade for this POTUS.

    The Amash/NSA/liberal anti-war coalition is taking hold.

    I'm not sure if it is actually a war on Syria. My understanding is the plan is to just rain hell down on a few key Syrian targets and tell them never to do it again, akin to spanking a disobedient child.

    Fact is Cameron got his ass handed to him, not only by the opposition but by his own party.. because he could not present a good enough argument for a military strike.. The evidence he presented to parliament is laughable and the vote showed this.
    Minister of Defence on Newsnight at the moment saying that they have understood the vote and will not be participating.

    We shall see.. lets just say I dont trust the Tories further than I can throw them.

    What I want is the freaking evidence they claim to have... the world wants it, but why are they not releasing it?

    I'm not surprised by this and France has already said they won't participate until the UN inspectors report. A similar vote in the US congress would be likely, in my view, if it ever got there.

    Oh well if more chemical weapons are used in the region against more civillians I hope those MP's who voted this down can look at themselves in the mirror. Spineless.

    Are Syria and Obamacare 'tied' together?

    Is it funny to watch Limbaugh puff on his cigar as Cruz comes up with this political garbage?

    Who do individual Americans think they are to demand evidence from Obama before action is taken?

    That might have worked for Libya, but Syria is not Libya. Unless the US takes out the chemical plants, it won't make difference in Assads forces going to door to door and killing people. But they can't take out the chemical plants without risking what they are accusing Assad of doing. It's quite a catch-22.

    The US still can't say whether the chemicals weren't used by the rebels or Al Qaeda getting hold of the Syrian governments chemicals. But in the next day or two Obama will be coming out and saying all the circumstantial evidence points to Assad's government.
