    No, of course not. Why would anyone ever think that?

     
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Well, we did dismiss Assad's retaliation threat.

    The White House on Monday shrugged off Syrian President Bashar Assad’s thinly veiled threat of retaliation if the United States goes ahead with military strikes against his country.

    Assad told CBS news that there will be “repercussions” for any American attack, ominously warning “you should expect everything.”

    We’re prepared for every contingency,” Rhodes replied, before repeating: “It’s not in his interest to escalate. That would only invite greater risk for him.”.....snip~

    According to our Deputy NSA under Susan Rice.....were prepared for everything.

    I do not support this kind of action in any way, shape, or form.

    Does anyone think that once we start, we'll not become involved in a much bigger way?

    I see a domino effect happening here, and I don't like it one bit.

    I don't get how anyone could support this kind of action. seriously, how many people actually believe that a sovereign nation woukd just allow themselves to be attacked without bringing about some sort of retribution.

    that is unlesd the intention is to have Syria retaliate and use that retaliation as justification for an all out invasion. that woukd then open the door to a regiobal war that woukd engulfe iran and all surroundibg natiins as a minimum.

    Really, we're the biggest bully in the schoolyard and fighting back is not an option. For which we should be grateful. As long as we pick on small countries, we're unlikely to have any retribution.

    Right. So, sense John Kerry was asked while in London, was there anything president Assad could do to avoid a US attack on his country and government, John Kerry said, "yes, he can surrender all his chemical weapons to the international community in one week." We'll, president Assad didn't even wait one day, he said, OK ill do that. But the US was lying again/still. Regime change is the goal and they will stop at nothing short of that. And as documented by another poster today there's a gas pipeline deal that is part of the motive for war on Syria.

    Still and again the US has zero credibility.

    Most of the right supported it under Bush. In fact, the right re-elected him again to do it more.

    except that we are not 100% sure who used them.
