    If that's true and Canada considers that Iran causing trouble in their region threatens them, then do what you've got to do.

We look like bullies picking on a weak kid, and that is no way to handle this problem, IMO. : No wonder our allies are not behind us this time!
    Good evening Lady P.

    Canada supports the US in this action, although not militarily because we lack the weapons systems needed in the planned attack. That said, most US allies problem is with Obama, not the US, in my view, and his lack of leadership and strength of character. The way he weaseled out of the "red line" statement last week was pathetic for the leader of the free world, a total embarrassment.

    I think Obama is making a further mistake by speaking on Tuesday - I see no good coming from this - as I've said before, Obama is irrelevant now and he would be best served keeping quiet for 3 years, rack up the golf rounds, entertain the Hollywood types, and ride off in January 2017 as a terrible President and hope people forget his 8 disasterous years.

    You've said that frequently to me, or words to that effect. They'd have some basis to rely upon if Canada was professing to be the world's police force or the world's only superpower, etc. That's not our role, never has been, never will be - the Canadian people aren't in that game. We are, however, strong and loyal friends and we've stood beside the US on most occasions, even when the US has been foolish or rash, but most people in the world see Canada as a force for good and not a meddling force that likes to throw its weight around.

    Much as I detest the UN, Canada sees its role in that body as the way to effect change in Iran and other places in the world. You'll never find Canada leading an offensive but we'll always be there when it comes to defending those attacked - we've been there defending the displaced and refugees from Syria the past 2 plus years.

    Not all good ideas or reasonable advice/proposals need come from threats of military intervention or violence.

    Getting back to the topic of the op, the "evil dictators" forces tried to fight off an attack by al Qaida extremists on a Christian village but were overpowered and had to pull back and the village fell to these terrorists who are killing inhabitants and causing those that can to flee. But Obama, McCain and Kerry want to attack president Assad. This is very screwed up, y'all stay focused, please.

    Campaigning is his forte. Without that, he's hard pressed at present to identify an actual policy success. What worries me is his ability to foster a real constitutional crisis in this thing.

    Yes CJ I have said similar before and truly don't mean any disrespect by it. But America is BBRROOKKEE and we are tired of this ****. It just can't be our deal anymore.
