    General Patraeus agress with me. Warriors think alike. We understand that if the tables were turned, we would exploit an opponent's weaknesses.

    I'm not so sure.

    Obama has waffled and wiggled and likely the blame will be put on him, not the American people. If Syria, or any Iran sponsored country, dares to attack Americans I think it's safe that the American people will respond mightily, with all the power they have at their disposal. Terrorists might be crazy but they are not necessarily stupid.

    Response should be immediate and overwhelming, not discussed back and forth for weeks before any action is taken. If he wanted to make a point it should have been done long ago, with contingency plans made well in advance. Now it's just political face-saving and posturing. We need warriors to fight real wars, not political wars.

    He also seems to be basing his intelligence on a video he saw, much like Benghazi.

    It still is not clear what Obama hopes

    Sure we'll respond; huge mistake, that. Just like WW2. But, we lost 400,000 Americans. I'll ask this question again: do we want to let things get that far out of control?

    Things have been out of control for a few years now with over 100,000 people being killed. Now it is time to act?

    I can understand the revulsion at people being gassed but responding weeks after the event does no real good. Assad has had plenty of time to prepare for air strikes and these strikes will do nothing to curtail the war or to enhance America's reputation as being tough on dictators. It is a symbolic gesture only and serves no definite purpose.

    I'm a 'far right wing extremist', as you may know, so have no time for terrorists of any stripe, but timing is everything and the time for response has passed. It now rings hollow. Best to have had contingency plans available in order to strike quickly but this ineffectual President apparently had none, even when drawing that red line.

    Howver, if it happens again, then bomb the bastards into that Hell they deserve.

    Sarah Palin is right.

    Allah is working it out. Obama is a Muslim remember? I'm sure that's the reason.

    He's paying Obama back for the job he gave him.
