    What's your opinion of McCain?

    I call McCain's insistence that the president should oppose the overwhelming view of the people, congress and UN/International law, Shameful.

So who am I to say stopping Assad from gassing more people is wrong.

    Who are you to say Assad has gassed his own people when this hasn't been confirmed and is a very illogical proposition to begin with.

    What about the parts you are leaving out? The world finally had a nut case leader that saw the light and changed his ways completely, was working with the west, swore off terror, swore off weapons of mass destruction and was not causing trouble for his neighbors.
    For years the west tried to get him to do just that. He finally does what the civilized world wants and Obama had him killed.

    What do you think that tells the leaders of North Korea, Iran, Syria or any other country led by similar types?

    The entire Libya operation was brain dead stupid. And not just for what went on in Libya itself.

    An unwritten assumed law? really? Thats a weak argument even for an obedient Obamaite.

    We dont live by unwritten laws, we are supposed to be governed by the Constitution and as such no President ever has been given the ultimate authority to wage war all on his orders without Congressional approval.

    Even Obama & Biden have said such. Thats what makes this all the more stupid.
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.

    A leopard never changes it's spots. Gadaffi got exactly what he deserved, whether or not he had a come-to-jesus moment along the way. I'm not in the forgiveness business. That's between him and his god. He killed people on that Pan Am flight and he had to die.

    Obama says he did it. If you think some stupid media station like FOX has more information than the CIA, NSA, M7, etc. then I think you are backing the wrong horse. Assad has to die. I say take the bad guy out and move on.

    If Obama SAYS he did it and that's all you need, we haven't anything to debate. Btw, all the same (and some more) intell sources that you cite we're wrong on Iraq.

    I'm not in the forgiveness business either. Nor am I in the stupid business. Creating additional problems, especially with current enemies, to settle old scores is stupid.
