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

    'War-weary' Obama says Syria chemical attack requires response - CNN.com

    "I assure you nobody ends up being more war-weary than me," Obama said, adding that he was not considering any option that would entail "boots on the ground" or a long-term campaign. Instead, Obama said, he and his top military and security aides were looking at a "limited, narrow act" to ensure that Syria and others know the United States and its allies won't tolerate future similar future violations.

    Boots on the ground was never an option.

    I made pea soup with potatoes and fried onions.

    I think that anybody who uses the term "boots on the ground" needs to be sent to Syria to be gassed. That is an incredibly dehumanizing term. Our military troops are people, human beings.

    I guess that means he's going with the "air or missile strike option" then. We should not be doing this at all, he should have the balls to just pull the ships back to base and leave Syria to it's own devices.

    Anyone wanna bet that after any "air or missile strike" Syrian TV trots out pictures of "collateral damage?" I bet several kids and women will show up dead after an "air or missile strike."

    I voted for Obama twice. Thank God he can't run for a third term.
    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.

    When will you just accept that some things need to be done. How many repubs and dems will need to do the same thing before you think "hey, maybe I'm wrong".

    Drawing more lines in the sand. LOL. 5th grade stuff and he's the President.

    He's turned us into the laughing stock of the world.

    Excuse me?? Hmm, maybe you missed the half dozen times I've said this PLUS the hello post I made in the come say hi section:

    WE ARE NOT THE WORLD'S POLICEMAN!!

    It is NOT our job to go fix everyone elses woes through the use of military force. People need to deal with their own issues, that's the only way it will be resolved with any possibility of stable success. In case you missed it again...we are not the world's policeman.

    The only thing I support is humanitarian aid, refugee sanctuary, and diplomatic options that do not involve military intervention. Period!

    Don't worry you were a laughing stock before Obama.
