    If the evidence was clear, I think the Congress wouldn't be as split as it is.You're not a member either, but somehow you know that we need to attack.

    Au contraire. There is nothing sacrosanct about the US Constitution - it is a set of guiding principles like any other, with some excellent aims, and some decidedly iffy ones. But as long as the US is signatory to the UN Charter and the International Courts of Justice, (amongst other international treaty organisations) it is subservient to, and bound by, international law. If it flouts international law, as it, and several of its lackeys, did in the instance of Iraq, it commits a crime against humanity. None of us, irrespective of how rich we are, or how many carrier fleets we field, is above the law.

    Surely you're trolling with that. There's no way you can honestly believe what you wrote. Is there?

    In watching some of the testimony yesterday, the liar Kerry told one of the Senators pretty much the same thing. He said he would have to go get the classified report on why it is clear Assad would use chemical weapons again. Like it's been proven with no doubt he did it to begin with.

    It would be funny except these clowns are serious.
    Mornin TOL. To top it off Kerry says they expect the vote to go thru. As this is so very dire.

    This goes to show us that he should never have been picked as the SOS. He is to weak and emotional. Bases his reactions off of his touchy feelings. This can lead to only more problems with him.

    One thing is clear.....once Obama term is up. Not only will most of his policies be overturned. But we cannot forget to drive out of Washington. Anyone that was associated to him and his Team.

    So hopefully this will be Kerry's Last Hurrah, and then we can drve him out of Politics for good as well as for the betterment of the country.

    What a weak sniveling piss ant he is.

And justifying Twelvers as being sane just because Christians believe in virgin birth is also rather silly.
    No! YOUR the one advocating bombing Syria (into the Stone Age as you put it in another thread) and criticising people's religious beliefs when your own are at least as silly. I don't think Jesus would be advocating bombing anybody. And if Syria were to be bombed into the Stone Age to your satisfaction millions of innocent Syrian civilians would be dead, but that's where hate takes you.

I trust the guy - if he bombs Syria I support him 100%. And no - a lunatic is some guy who believes in 1,200 year old zombies and gasses thousands of his own people for laughs and giggles. Assad is no different than Idi Amin, Charles Taylor, or any of those other homicidal lunatics.
    The US constitution has no place for attacking a country that hasn't first attacked us, or threatened us with imminent attack. You warmongers need to ACTUALLY READ the constitution and WPA.

    Oh your really going to pop some heads with that one. You have to understand that America does what it does because we're filled with people who think we should bomb such countries into the Stone Age, turn them into parking lots or a vast sea of glass. But they would have you to believe it is "they" that are filled with hate and lunatics, just look around here.
