    If Obama would go to Congress before Cameroon, I bet he would have his "yes" and I bet british would have vote different.

    I don't think it matter if he goes to Congress now or later.... it's not like Congress is going to say "no" ...now or later....

    the federal government loves it some war... it never passes on the chance to get it some.

    Obama: "US should take military action against Syria", seeks Congressional Appo

    Because there is no evidence; and what evidence is out there is that it was the rebels, that includes Alquaida, are the ones responsible... But like Kerry said, it doesn't matter WHO COMMITTED THE CRIME, but the fact tha SOMEONE committed the crime is EnouGh to go after Assad.

    The whole administration MUST BE FLUSHED and soon before we go to war with Syria and Russia at the minimum... Especially on behalf of Alquaida who we are at war with.

    Obama, by supporting the rebels is aiding and abetting our enemies; that is the definition of treason. Even more direct treason than what GW had done.

    Well gosh...this is shocking. Yet another Obama move where he abandons his strong ardent position and now will put it before congress. Great move. Congress says go...its the republicans fault. Congress says no...well...thats the republicans fault too.

    Dood was all bowed up, sendin in ships and everything ready to be all badass and blow **** up. Now...

    That soft little snapping sound you just heard was what was left of the tiny bit of spine that he had. He LOOKS weak. The world SEES him as weak. His red line got crossed before and he didnt do jack dammit. Shouldnt ought to be engaging his lips and how does that old saying go, stop writing checks he cant cash.

    because our politicans are spineless and wanted to score political points rather than doing the right thing. ( which will also happen in the US)

Russian involvement is a fiction, it is not even part of the equation.

    They have a big chance to do the big dog in the region.
    Also considering that Putin see Obama and his actions of a bored child.
    He wouldn't dare to mess around with Bush, not even through TV. But with Obama seems to be so easy.

    Why risk an open war for something that isn't even proven to be true?
    This is the key. He HAS TO STOP talking and posturing like a badass. He has to tell his own people to shut the **** up. He didnt act in May...probably because his red line was crossed by the very people he SUPPORTS. His stupidity is the kind of behavior that makes you a target.
