We should just cordon the place off and wean ourselves from foreign oil exports through domestic exploration and greater energy efficiency. If western Europe wants oil let them buy it from the Rooskies! Heck how 'bout this once we didn't need their oil we could embargo the Arab's from exporting oil?!? heh heh

    That won't happen.

    Well that's good....

    Only what we've been told...but when it comes to military action, I don't think we can ever trust what we are being told, whether its a Republican or a Democrat.

    Re: 'War-weary' Obama says Syria chemical attack requires response

    "I feel confident that what follows represents the overwhelming opinion of serving professionals who have been intimate witnesses to the unfolding events that will lead the United States into its next war.

    They are embarrassed to be associated with the amateurism of the Obama administration’s attempts to craft a plan that makes strategic sense. None of the White House staff has any experience in war or understands it. So far, at least, this path to war violates every principle of war, including the element of surprise, achieving mass and having a clearly defined and obtainable objective.

    They are repelled by the hypocrisy of a media blitz that warns against the return of Hitlerism but privately acknowledges that the motive for risking American lives is our “responsibility to protect” the world’s innocents. Prospective U.S. action in Syria is not about threats to American security. The U.S. military’s civilian masters privately are proud that they are motivated by guilt over slaughters in Rwanda, Sudan and Kosovo and not by any systemic threat to our country.

    They are outraged by the fact that what may happen is an act of war and a willingness to risk American lives to make up for a slip of the tongue about “red lines.” These acts would be for retribution and to restore the reputation of a president. Our serving professionals make the point that killing more Syrians won’t deter Iranian resolve to confront us. The Iranians have already gotten the message".

    Who's taking a shot at the military? You need to read more carefully NP....or maybe its a problem with reading comprehension. My distrust is not with the military but with those in charge of calling the shots. I don't trust Obama in this regard anymore than I trusted GWB.

    What are you basing this on? Seems like Obama is taking a position similar to most of our allies. If they really think he is gutless, then what are they? LOL.....you are stretching on this one NP.
