    Actually, the US helped ravage Syria, Libya, Egypt, and other countries. Its called the Arab Spring.

    Obama can go back to Chicago or wherever he feels comfortable..... He is not fit to lead this nation or the world...

    This goes beyond democrat or republican - it is not political...
    Obama feared a military coups back in 2012. That's why Marines were ordered to remove the bolts from their rifles during Obama's second inauguration parade and why U.S. Marines or other military units were unable to respond to the shooter at the Washington Navy Yard, all small arms ammunition has been removed from military installations around the DC area.

    Obama does need to resign or be removed from office. If the Democrat Party won't do what's best for America and Congress won't do their job of oversight of the Executive branch of government, then it's the military who took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and Obama isn't above the Constitution but Obama may disagree.

    The only thing left is the Constitution and the original intent of the Second Amendment.

    Now Obama gets charged with treason..

    Let Holder defend him....
    It's not about "running away" its about public support. Now I don't live in the US but have been recently and have many friends/family in the US. From what I gather people are against any kind of conflict that puts US lives in danger and costs money. Obama got involved in Libya and let other allies take the lead, tried to get involved in Syria and didn't receive much support from either side. Don't agree with the current administrations choices however I understand how politics works and lets be honest they were not offered any alternatives from across the aisle on either conflict. The media were against Libya but yet when nothing was done in Syria or Ukraine they attacked and on the other side you have a percentage of people who are against any kind of foreign intervention. Mixed messages and partisan politics is what is hurting the US image not the current president and it will be the same 4 years from now.

    Not winding down at all, just knocked off the coverage because of gaza. Crucifictions. etc.

    The "Islamic fanatics" are winning/stalemating Syria ,with the Assad regime ( which is holding on). and not the elusive Syrian moderates"
    In that case we should send a billion Dollars worth of weapons to Assad now.

    Though I am against intervention, if we have to support a side we ought to support the dictator rather than the terrorists.

    Yes it is. Have you really convinced yourself your ridiculously partisan post is not political or are you just saying that to try and give your post some sort of credibility it lacks on its own merit?

    Assad is the least worse choice, considering the "moderate Syrians" cannot exist by themselves
