    On other hand our "allies" don't want to have anything to do with "military action in syria" and our "enemys" are all saying "We will be 'forced to act' if you attack our firend" so it looks like hes another "cowboy" president if he dose act.

    Its either Cowboy or Coward. No matter what happens he will be called one or the other.

    On the other other hand He's the one who put himself in the tough spot to start with.
    Bullseye...

    HE, is the one who claimed to have superior judgment, is the one who blew it.

    I think anyone who is half way politically savvy would have known you don't paint a Red Line as he had.

    This is why Obama has a teleprompter grafted to his forehead; he cannot be trusted to speak extemporaneously.

    Change You can Believe In? You Betcha... utter incompetence on every front.

    And... Senate Demokrats asked for and got a second vote to send troops.

    They wanted to be on record as not being so anti-military, so anti- intel services, so weak on matter of national security. It was a political vote, as evidenced by their turn on the troops and a then popular president at the first opportunity.

    Voting to send troops to battle is the most important vote an elected representative makes, and Demokrats used that vote for political expediency. Purely disgusting.

    WHY doesn't Pelosi head over to Syria and talk to Basher?


    Basher: Thank you for coming and undermining your country. Believe me, we think you are an idiot too.
    Basher: I hear in America they say you suck. True?


    Basher: You Ride too?


    Basher: Spank... my little puppet?


    Pelosi... Our Minority Leading fool.

    At first I would think it would, but as the war machine revs up its engine and the buying spree begins, just as it did when Iraq & Afghanistan got rolling, Just as did when WWII got started, eventually the war machine pushes the economy forward.

    As for O, he has no intention of attacking Syria. If he did, he would've done so by now. O is likely just making empty promises to get the right wing militards in Congress off his back.
    Funny...the "right wing militards" other than McCain seem to be opposing a strike.

    LOL...

    I have a hard time doing that. Over the years I have visited one forum site or another, I see probably about 90% of the responses based on media propaganda, rather than fact. From both sides.

    Sometimes I slip too, but I try to find the relevant facts before taking a stand one way or another. I am opposed to all this action we are complicit in, over in North Africa. Starting the day Obomba sent 112 cruise missiles into Libya, I looked into some facts, and was amazed after all these years, we try to control smaller sovereign nations that are not a threat to us.

    No! Cowboy or coward aren't his only choices. He can follow the will of American people, congress and the UN Security Council! That would provide him the most credibility.

    Re: Obama considers unilateral Syria response

    You know Obama campaigned on (amongst other things that have become lies), we need to talk to our enemies, diplomacy goes along way. But I don't believe he's ever sat down and talked to Mr. Assad.
