    Especially since we have said we aren't going after their stockpiles of chemical weapons. How stupid is it to just bomb a country with no real plan of action? What is it supposed to be accomplished and how is bombing supposed to accomplish it?

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...
    I do pretty much agree with your commentary but I don't think Israel benefits from the Syrian body count, particularly the civilians who seem to be getting the short end here.

    Also, I question that we are "supporting Al Qaeda". I doubt we are "supporting" anyone beyond our weapon manufacturers. Every President is obligated to have a war or two during their term and historically, we never really win anything (possible exception was the Gulf War 1 where we came, saw, conquered and departed) but billions change hands among a small, select group. Business as usual.

    Why are we not shooting up Iran?
    How about we go back to Iraq and get them back on track?
    How about North Korea? They are bad and kill their own and jail Americans.
    Stay longer in Afghanistan?
    How about Russia? Putin is a tough talker. Lets make him put up or shut up.
    Lots of wrongs in the world. We cant fix them all.

    Obama: "Plan is a 'limited, proportional' strike to 'degrade' Syrian capacity and 'send a message'".

    Obama, show the American people what you have. We demand it.
    You don't have the right to demand anything. The POTUS doesn't work for you; he works for Google, Microsoft, some top law firms, and other interests.

    Other than maybe being led around by the nose by men in flowing robes, and turbans......I get the feeling that rather than Charlie Brown, and the football, it is more like chasing our tail....

    Assad's son is already reported to have sent Obama a message on Facebook. Called him a little bitch.

    I could care less what intel they have or how good it is. Syria is not our problem.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
