    I'm of the mindset that we should not be the world police and if the U.N. authorizes any action to be taken, it should be taken by all of the U.N. and not just the U.S.
    We didnt go to Germany because they were killing Jews.
    And even if we did, 1400 is not 7 million.
    There need not be any US action on this at all.
    Its time for the US to worry about the US.

    I realize we didn't. Some are of the mindset that if we went in earlier we could have stopped it from being 7 million Jews that were killed.

    Again, I'm not disagreeing with you. I'm simply stating this should be a U.N. thing and if they don't want to take action, we shouldn't either.

    I could more easily see granting refugee status. I am not sure bombing will help the people. The rebels have their issues and so does the government. It's a total mess.

That way, everyone can save face and the onus is put back on those countries that oppose such action.
    Good morning, CJ!

    Excellent suggestion! Do you think anyone is the administration is listening?

    Good morning Lady P. I seriously doubt this administration listens to anyone other than themselves.

    Doncha get the sense that Obama might be going through the motions on this just to give him an excuse for inaction so he's got someone to blame when the M.E. goes all to hell even further?
    ... despite Kerry's end-of-week ultimatum ... not the 1st time him and Obama are allegedly in disagreement.

    Anyway, I'm guessing he won't do much of anything if Congress says no.

    Good morning, Bubba!

    If he is foolish enough to do what he feels like doing, even though few except perhaps Valerie Jarrett, Kerry, Hagel, and McCain agree with him, then he should be prepared for the fallout from the American people! The people want action taken now on domestic problems, which are piling up to make quite an ugly stack! Enough is enough! :

    I agree with that completely. We have huge domestic troubles that are far more pressing to our national security than Syria's war on terror in their country half a world away.

    Assad isn't Hitler. Assad is not trying to exterminate an entire population. There's no evidence that Assad even used the weapons. So the rebels are beheading people and lining them up and shooting them. One Syrian force killed a member of Assad's military, cut out the dead mean's heart and ate it. Why are you pro-beheadings? Why is eating someone's heart hunky dory to you?Why is that considered acceptable behavior to you? The only logical thing is that you're a member of Al-Qaeda or perhaps your a socio path.
