    Boehner is a RINO.

    IMO we have no reason to bother with Syria!
    There are no good guys. Just wait for them to stop killing each other and then we can have diplomatic relations.

    Re: House Speaker John Boehner will support strike on Syria

    First if the President WANTED to do something he would have already. I'm beginning to believe this was his tactic to hopefully get Congress to say 'NO' thus giving him shelter. If Congress says 'yes' they are basically calling the President's hand...THEN what WILL he do?

    Consider that IF he does respond AND we find out down the road that the rebels are responsible for the gassing the **** storm will reek of Iraq. Personally I can think of no reason for Assad to gas anyone. He is reportedly winning and gas attacks would empower the rest of the globe to potentially get involved. This global involvement would ONLY help the rebels thus their motivation...?
    "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure" - 2006 Senator Obama...leadership failure indeed!

    As long as we're keeping the ME in turmoil by playing one side against the other and encouraging them to kill each other, they don't focus on israel.

    We suported iran as long a s they danced when we pulled the strings...then they kicked out the shah and we supported saddam so he could kill iranians for us... We supported afghan when they were killing russians but then we had to invade afghan. to kill al qaeda because of 9/11..now we support al qaeda so they can kill hezbollah.

    Insanity.

    Gee..I wonder why they hate us in the ME? must be our "freedom"..LMAO...

    That's about the jist of it in Syria. Both the sides fighting are bad guys IMO. Let em kill each other, see where the dust settles, then re-evaluate the situation. Syria is a lose/lose situation for the U.S.

    Syria is the prime example of letting the U.N. handle it and if they want to do something about it, let all nations contribute both troops and money. Otherwise, let it go.

    A big government Republican is no better than a big government Democrat. Injecting ourselves in the Syrian civil war is not in our national interest. Killing a few Syrians for a couple days is just about the dumbest idea I've ever heard.

    The same reason Saddam did, to instill terror in his people. Terrorfied people are easier to control if they know the government hammer will fall on them if they do anything wrong. I'm not saying this is the case here as I have not seen any real evidence yet of who did it, but it isn't a stretch to see Assad doing it either. IMO both sides are the bad guys here.

    Re: House Speaker John Boehner will support strike on Syria

    Id e very interested to see the total Dem vote and wonder why so many people would put the focus on Boehner an d the GOP and not Reid and the Senate.

    Id also very much like to see the evidence for why we are attacking, WHO we are attacking, what the purpose of the attack is, and why we didnt respond when the "red line" was crossed in march of 2013. Id also be very interested in knowing which rebel factions were found with Sarin gas in June of 2013. Id be ecstatic to know if the proposed military action will be engaged against rebel forces that have been found to use chemical weapons.

    I dont think ANYONE should back or oppose military action based on Obama.
