    I never said we needed to. This isn't total war.

    Very true.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    What am I missing in that "before and after" large black-and-white picture? I don't see any major damage except for some minor stuff on the roof of the building. Is this all that a Tomahawk does? Weird.

    That's 4th grade reasoning at best.

    Most of the damage is internal. These missiles were designed for hardened targets IIRC, and anti-armor weapons often look like they have left minor damage from the exterior.

    Bumping up your thread USC.....Russia and Assad has spoken.


    Russia Condemns U.S. Airstrikes on ISIS and al-Qaeda; Assad Approves.....

    In the wake of the first American-led airstrikes against Islamic State forces in Syria, we're learning that the operation did not just focus on ISIS installations and its oil trade, but also the al-Nusra Front as well. According to Reuters, strikes against the al Qaeda-linked group in northern Syria wrought a death toll of about 50.

    Russia was quick to condemn the airstrikes. TheWashington Post noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin the patron saint of territorial integrity decried the airstrikes as a violation of Syria's sovereignty. Not only did Syrian dictator Bashar Assad refrain from lashing out against the American-led airstrikes, he seemingly gave a very coded thumbs up:.....snip~

    It should be either total war or spec op missions, combined with CIA satellite and operatives intel. If we went into this with 500K troops like in Kuwait, they'd all think twice before pulling any crap. We have the largest and most sophisticated military in the world, and should make other people and countries very leery of screwing with us. We're too afraid of negative responses around the globe to assert ourselves properly.

    It is like I said many times, I do not think anyone in Washington has every thought what a post Assad Syria will be like. It is like everyone in Washington has tunnel vision and can only see Assad, nothing else.
    Yep, this administration definitely wants Assad gone for some reason! Could it be that he's trying to bring his people into the 21st Century, and that doesn't fit in someone's scheme of things, where everyone is subjugated except the elite? We see the illegal aliens sneaking into this country from Central America and Mexico just to escape that way of life!

    Saddam in Iraq was a monster, but he did keep the lid on the pressure cooker that is the ME , so we had to get rid of him. Things are so much better now, aren't they? Obviously not! I still haven't figured out why we got rid of Mubarak in Egypt, though, just to make room for the Muslim Brotherhood to take over. We saw what happened there - the people said No, and booted them out just as soon as they could! With the electronic gadgets that people all over the world have today, they dream of having the freedom they see others enjoy. Why should rebels be allowed to deny them that, and take them backwards into the dark ages again?

    Interesting, Assad appears to be going along to get along. Also, the Israelis used a patriot missile, thats only been done a few times, and by Israel no less-it seems that platform is capable of anti air even though it wasn't designed for that.

    There was a factual error in the story, Syria had a jet shot down back in march by Turkey...

    Are things any better in Libya now that Qaddafi is gone? I think not. There is more killing and fighting between tribes and factions than before, only it is not on the news. We want to defeat ISIS, make nice with Assad. He has that ground force we need to be successful. It is that simple.
