    i don't think the rebels could have been the ones behind the attacks, mainly because it is my belief that chemical weapons require specialist training in order to handle them. i don't think the rebel forces have any one with the knowledge to handle chemical weapons, and the only way we would know if they did use chemical weapons is if the chemical weapons blew up in their faces or backfired on them.
    well, I believe it to be one of two things.

    The rebels purposely creating a false flag situation, or one of their ammo dumps being hit.

    Good evening, Lord of Planar.

    All we heard, prior to Kerry stating on TV the other day that Assad was responsible, was that we had to wait for the UN report. Well,

    the UN has given their report, and it stated that the rebels were responsible! Why is the administration continuing to dither on

    this, stating now that they need congressional approval? They didn't know they needed it before? I guess Libya doesn't count,

    because BHO went directly to the UN for approval that time. Very strange....

    Let's say Assad is toppled. Btw, I am not saying he's a good guy in any way. Then you wind up with a new civil war afterwards to figure out who gets to control the pile of ashes.

    Again, the best case scenario is a destabilized middle east...


    The Middle East is already destabilized and it's only going to get worse..Jordan and Lebanon, Eygpt... I seldom agree with any Republican, but I think John McCain has the right idea and may be why the Pres. decided to go through Congress...

    Edit; most sensible people on both sides 85-91% oppose military action against Assad, but that's not going to stop obama and friends.


    I guess we will just have to wait and see...

    Yes, but for different reasons.

You are no better than conservatives who claim rightousness through religion.


    The original plan was to go in immediately to take out the launchers and air fields so it would be more difficult to launch chemical weapons and to punish them for launching these gas attacks on their own people, and to discourage others from doing so...It is not necessary to foam at the mouth and attack me...

    Didn't Obama say he wants to be fair. Do the Right thing?


    Well, we already have a war on terror and if we do go in perhaps we should broadcast that as well...We seem to know where they are located...

    So like in Libya, you want to make one side defenseless...
