    Dude! We don't risk them coming in, they're in. The CIA has been training them and arming them in camps in both Jordan and Turkey and sending them in.

    Obama has been helping Americas enemies! They were installed in Egypt, then Libya and he's trying to get them in power in Syria.

    Of course it is a play for time, it never was anything else. What did anyone expect Assad to do? Obama has painted himself into a corner, the UN will never say go, congress will never say go so it is then up to Obama to either stand down or have his dopey "mini war" which will not remove Assad from power, but will leave Syria a more complete mess.

    I figured the whole thing was a ruse between Assad and Putin to buy time for Syria to shift its chemical weapon stockpiles. Lying assholes are lying assholes, film at 11:00.

    Montecresto - Facts have no place in this discussion or for that matter any discuss about potential mistakes this administration has made regarding it's foreign policy. You most only use MSM approved pro-Obama tag lines when discussing GOP created issues that the president has dealt with in "a most glorious fashion".

    Re: Assad tells Obama to stop arming rebels or no deal

    "The United States accepts no preconditions for Syria relinquishing the chemical weapons it used against civilians in recent attacks. Either Assad makes the right decision and gives up his illegal, indiscriminate weapons, or he continues down the path of ignoring international law and the will of the world community. If so, the U.S. will use force to punish him, and to send a message to other tyrants who would use illegal weapons. You will not get away with it."

    My suggested text of a speech Obama will never give.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Plus the MB has sent in their Golden Shield Brigade. Now who do you think was training them?

    Well that didn't last long. I guess star-eyed Putin sympathizers can now wake back up to reality after, what, 4 days or so? Just enough time for Russia to flood arms into Syria on a scale that dwarfs our own. Brilliant, foreign policy advisers to the Pres. Brilliant.

    I guess every time you guys say that, I'll say this. It has not been PROVEN that president Assad used chemical weapons on his civilians.

    What do you mean. He said that the US must stop arming the terrorists in his country if they want his cooperation.
