    All the UN inspectors will say is that, "gas killed people." They were specifically ordered not to determine blame or who used the gas. How's that for a waste of time?

    The fact that we've learned our intelligence can be 100% wrong is the problem. (Iraq has WMDs.) The fact that it makes little logical sense for the Syrian government to attack its own people in the face of obvious world condemnation is the problem. The fact that our "war machine" is being drawn down and we don't trust our government to not want to start mobilizing again is the problem.
    It seems I'm alone in my approval of the UN. lol. I agree though, and I really didn't Obama would be the starting the war machine back up.

    His Secretary of State, Kerry, put a wrench in the whole process with his stupid remarks today. There is no way that congress will vote for the motion now and no way that anyone else in the international community will join in.

    I can't remember a time when American foreign policy was so poorly handled.

    What did Kerry say today? Yes, this definitely a bumbling response from the beginning when he drew a "red line".
