    US plans for '3 days of attack' on Syria

    US plans for '3 days of attack' on Syria

    The Pentagon is readying more intense and longer attacks on Syria than originally planned, set to last three days, the Los Angeles Times reported on Sunday.War planners now aim to unleash a heavy barrage of missile strikes to be followed swiftly by additional attacks on targets that may have been missed or remain standing after the initial launch, the Times cited officials as saying.
    Two US officers told the newspaper that the White House has asked for an expanded target list to include "many more" than the initial list of around 50 targets.



    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.

    The planned US strike will not strategically impact the current situation in the war
    Well then, why on earth are you considering going anywhere near the region then?

    Lord beer me strength.

    It has not been explained why the Arab League is incapable of dealing with this situation. While the U.S. could use its military might to punish all evil doers in the world, there is no rationale to say why it is in the national interest of the U.S. to do so.

    Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

    So we will damage some runways, the rebels say the attack will not help them, there will be no regime change, no military degradation, no elimination of WMD's and after three days we will leave and nothing will change. An AlQaeda rebel faction just took over a coptic Christian town in their attempt to run all Christians out of the Middle East and we are choosing to fight on their side.

    Assad ran a secular government in a country which used to be 70% Christian. It's now 25% Christian because the rebels have either targeted them or caused them to flee. Yet we side with the rebels because we claim Assad used poison gas on fifteen hundred of his own people in a civil war where over a hundred thousand people have been killed. The rebels claim that they have also used chemical weapons and we have chosen to fight on their side.

    This is so screwed up it's unimaginable. Any Congresscritter who supports fighting on the side of the islamist rebels against a secular government in a war where there is no good guy on either side of the conflict shouldn't be voted out of office. They should be tarred and feathered.

    Only thing missing is the list of targets. Jesus.

    I called several Congressmen.....They aren't voting to go. But I don't think it will do any good. These Senators have upped the game and will back Obama's play. Can't make all these Military Moves and do nothing now. We need to go after the likes of Johnny Quest McCain. Which he has a whole term to go thru again.

    We need people hitting the media and going after McCains psychological health. Question if he is going senile. Has ALS, Can't remember things. I mean make it go cross twitter and the Net. Radio and wherever he gets on the Camera. People should be screaming out to have him tested and psychologically evaluated.

    Pretty much destroying his credibility on anything else going into the future. Run the WarMongering Neo Con Wannabe Right out to pasture. I swear if I could.....I would walk Right up and put my boot dead off into his pathetic Reptilian Smug ass of his.

    Whether Russia retaliates in any significant way or not, Putin is going to be so inflamed, there's no telling what other types of ways they may try to hurt us. And we shouldn't forget the declaration from the UN that w/out a resolution this will be a violation of international law. So the US will be the belligerent. And because of long term "regime change" goals for Syria the US, that has been behind the scenes encouraging and facilitating the "Arab Spring" as it spread used the opportunity to start some **** in Syria too to realise that goal.
