    Re: "No boots on the ground in Syria," Says Obama

    Obama has dumbed down, dismantled and feminized our military so much in the past four years I don't think Obama could put boots on the ground in Syria today.

    Obama can't even put a Carrier Strike Group in the Mediterranean Sea because the carrier that's suppose to be the "surge" carrier to be used in an emergency can't deploy because the ships crew haven't been efficiency trained for deployment because instead of training for deployment they have been sitting in the class rooms receiving their mandatory indoctrination in PC sensitivity training.

That is not to say they should attack Syria, however, unless it is entirely in American interests to do so. It is not even certain just who will replace the present regime or what their intentions might be..

    Obama will fight a political war to satisfy his base and the Nobel committee, as usual, rather than a military war. Anyone who fights under Barrack Obama must love their country very much.
    I was with you up until that underlined sentence. What do you mean we "are the world's policeman?" Who appointed us? You? The "expectations of dictators?" Little Mahmoud in some third world nation? I don't recall any international vote or appointment to that position.

    Our place, as I see it, is to set an example for others to follow. Violent reaction is NOT a good example. Instead we should be proving ourselves by doing "nice-nice" things, like providing humanitarian aid to BOTH sides of any internal conflict, and sanctuary to refugees. We offer mediators, perhaps developmental assistance to help build farms, industry, etc. If we are truly upset we can cut off aid, cut off economic ties, trade embargo, etc.

    Military action is always kept as the last and least acceptable option, used with maximum reluctance. Even then it should occur only when we or an ally we have a defense treaty with is actually under direct threat.

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Thank you.
    How many times must a democrat, then a republican, then a democrat again, do something before you realize that, just perhaps, it's necessary.

    I fry the onions separately, then add them to the completed brew when I do the salt (which should always be added at the end, as it hardens bean skins).

    I like to fry some carrots with the onions. I'm vegan.

    I support the overthrow of Assad and the instituting of a transitional democratic government beholden to the UN.

    You lost me, sorry. If we're talking about this particular area...it was Bush Sr. who took us into Iraq, then Clinton was Pres. and he didn't take us anywhere that I recall...then Bush Jr. took us back into Iraq AND added Afghanistan...now we're at Obama in Syria....what did I miss?

    Bush Sr. should have finished the job so there would have been no need for Bush Jr. to do it. I don't see what that has to do with Obama trying to go into Syria which I am oppsed to.
