    Clinton did the same thing that Obama is proposing - cruise missile strikes. At what point will you realize that maybe sometimes military intervention is the right thing to do.

    operation desert fox, forgotten by most Clinton lovers and anti Iraq war alike because they live in a world where Saddam did nothing wrong after the 1st gulf war.

    1. Person expresses disapproval of putting "boots on the ground."

    2. Person says another person should be gassed.

    Seriously, who is being more dehumanizing here?

    If only people saw the uninsured as human beings too, we'd have one hell of a Country.

    I forgot about the missile strikes on Baghdad in '"retaliation for an Iraq attack on a kurdish controlled city in northern Iraq." Well, technically Clinton could claim violation of the truce agreement imposed on Saddam after Operation Desert Storm. The same crap Bush Jr. pulled with his final invasion.

    Again...What does that have to do with Syria???

    In fact, your examples go to show how we keep messing up in the area. Not how we need to keep going INTO the area.

    So how many times must I be shown the "reality?" I have seen the reality and it is foolish....to keep messing about in the Middle East. You have yet to justify our use of military force on a nation we are not at war with.
    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.

    "As incompetence, deception, duplicity and dishonesty become the hall marks of the Obama administration, it is important that we not lose sight of the greatest danger posed beyond these serial scandals: the feminization, emasculation and dismantling of our military. The two most important elements of national survival are the media and the military; one keeps us free and the other keeps us secure. We know the media are failing – God help us if the military does also. We may be able to fix the government in 2014. Fixing the military is more problematic."

    Sadly, all that will probably be just fine with the new pretty-in-pink military President Obama, the Democrats, and eight turncoat Republicans just gave us. "<

    Clinton's cruise missiles blew up the Chinese Embassy. I don't think Obama will get away with blowing up the Russian Embassy.

    Russia's navy is designed for surface warfare, basically sinking U.S. Navy ships. American destroyers are designed for providing air defense and anti submarine defense for our carriers. Obama had allowed our navy to fall in a state of disrepair that we don't have any carriers to take on the Russian navy's ships.

    I think Putin knows this and Obama has already fired those in the U.S. military who also knew it and replaced them with REMF's yes men.

    Obama is so incompetent he has already told Assad what will be targeted by our Tomahawk cruise missiles.

    But who knows, maybe we do have "ships that go underwater" ?

    All our ships can go underwater..if they get holes blown in them.


    It's like the excellent submarine movie "Das Boot".

    The commando they are bringing on a mission looks around apprehensively at valves and pipes (routinely) leaking and says "How deep will this thing go, anyway"? and the captain says "All the way to the bottom if we don't stop her".
