    I just heard kerry on tv say all the left wing emotional buzzwords while "testifying" about what our role should be.


    Now to young, naive kids and idealists this all sounds SOOOOO good...but to people who have seen all this before it's typical, empty political doubletalk.

    Sen. Johnson just commented/asked Kerry if it was true that; "Originally the opposition was more western leaning, more moderate and democratic and as time has gone by has been degraded and infiltrated by Al Qaeda?;

    Kerry said; QUOTE "No, that is basically not true. the opposition has increasingly become more defined by its' moderation and more defined by the breadth of it's membership and more defined by its' adherence to ...some...you know...democratic process and to an all inclusive, minority protecting constitution which will be broad based and secular to the security of syria."END QUOTE

    LMMFAO..I think he got them all in one sentence..."moderation", "breadth of membership", "democratic process", "broad based", "all inclusive", "minority protecting" and "security".

    Now anyone over about 15 years old sees this as pure propaganda and playing on peoples emotions and prejudices..

    If anyone is against bombing syria, therefore, they are not moderate (radical?), they are undemocratic, they are "exclusive" (HORRORS!), "against protecting minorities" (gotta get SOMETHING in about minorities..they've learned how THAT word works on americans) have a narrow agenda (opposite of "broad based) and would cause the country to become "insecure"..LMFAO..as if it were ever "secure" anyway.

    Here is a breakdown of humanitarian aid

    And this is Russia trading cash for weapons with the Assad regime.
    Insight: Syria pays for Russian weapons to boost ties with Moscow
    Syria and Iran and Russia are ally's, Iran has a mutual defense treaty with Syria. Russia has warned that this will spread to a regional war! Had the US kept out of Syria from the beginning, Assad would have crushed the rebellion early on and there wouldn't be 100,000 dead, and we wouldn't be talking about this escalating into a regional war. This is insanity people.

    wartime tax rates need to go into effect the second this is approved, should happen automatically whenever we do anything like this, and should stay in place until the end of the mission. it should affect all brackets, and the increases should be significant.

    shared sacrifice. perhaps this will remind the American public why we should think twice about being the pro bono police force.

    Actually, I'm hoping that the bombing will strike against both the Army forces and the Al Nusar front, clearing the way for the FSA to once again dominate the opposition. Hopefully the administration will work out closer coordination with the FSA. They have potential.

    What depresses me is that the only thing to get Boehner and Obama to agree on something is war.

    That's beautiful Jred, except our own law does not allow us to bomb nations that haven't attacked us. Why is there such trouble with this. This is most elementary.

    it's not just Boehner and Obama.. it's reps and Dems... and it's been that way for a lot longer than any of us have been around.

    bipartisan support for bombing other countries is as predictable as the sunrise....
