    I've become quite accustomed to your emotional outbursts, Jetbogieman, but shouldn't you really try to debate the issues rather than attempting to analyze another poster on an internet web site? I know you hate Americans, despite your denials, but it doesn't matter to me.

    Perhaps if you were to read a bit more it might help you to look at the issues with a clearer pov and expand your thinking beyond your usual "right wing" hysteria. Don't you think that developing a broader outlook might help you to eventually calm down and behave more rationally?

How about Striking Cambodia while Pol Pot was murdering most of the population there? We didn't. Here's the deal. We only attacked other nations for two reasons....

    1) They legitimately threatened US interests.

    OR

    2) For political reasons. This is why Bush went to war in Iraq, and guess what? Obama is Bush on friggen steroids.

    And now, Obama is attempting to back Congress into a corner for yet more political reasons. If Assad goes completely out of control, Obama will then point the finger at Congress and say "It's YOUR fault that we are not attempting to deal with a tragedy". But WHAT tragedy? A tragedy that is happening thousands of miles from our shores? OK, let's bomb Syria. While we are at it, let's invade Africa because they are killing each other there. Let's invade Mexico because drug gangs have killed more civilians than Assad has. Let's invade........ Well, you get the picture.

    Here's what we do.... We make our case before the United Nations, and let THEM decide. Then let's go back to rebuilding America. Hey, that's a novel idea..... America first. Why didn't any of our politicians think of that? Because they are all douche bags who don't give two craps for America. THAT's why.
    If the UN decides then it should be the UN sending in the troops.

    There's no profit in that. Better put some boots on the ground.

    Two problems with that:

    1: any UN involvement would have to require the approval of the security council, and since china and Russia would veto any attempt to get involved, there is no way to win approval.

    2. If the security council does give a green light for action in syria, the United States would still have to contribute to any UN backed coalition, and we would most likely contribute 60% to 80% of the combat forces of the coalition.

    The more I think about it, the more I say we should stay out of it altogether. Why should we give a rat's ass for them? Let them kill each other. It will mean fewer of these animals on the earth that want to kill us.

    Yeah, I'm mean. Big Woop.

    Yep.

    When the dust settles, the strongest leader will stabilize the country.

    While others watch Americans getting killed and playing Monday morning QB. Time for other boots on the ground, preferably those with a 'made in EU' insignia.

    And how many of those would be Chinese and Russian boots? Also, the American military could not function as it should with a CofC like Obama. Every decision would be formed by opinion polls, and we have already seen his response in Benghazi and even during the Osama raid. Would any serious person really want Barrack Obama to lead them into a war?

    Anyone arguing for boots on the ground, I ask you this.

    Would you volunteer?

    And when the dust settles, a period of grace sets in, then act if necessary. But the way it is now there is no clear vision of who we are supporting. ME Leaders have disappeared with who knows what taking their place.

    After what happened in Iraq, Libya and Egypt in the ME it is time to take a more cautious approach.
