    I've never called Obama a wimp. I called him a pussy. This little expedition will elevate his status as a pussy.

    Re: We are now bombing in Syria.

    I wonder if Assad can see the writing on the wall. He's toast.

    It boogles my mind that these middle eastern dictators don't see the length to which America will go to protect its oil money. The guy is a walking corpse, and I don't think he's even aware.

    I really think he believes the Russians have the clout/will to save him.

    In what way?
    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.

    But since it comes down to the almighty dollar, Assad will have a bullet in his head by the end of the year. Maybe an American bullet, maybe a rebel bullet, but his government is undoubtedly going down.

    I think if Assad went down, that would leave Syria in worse chaos and turmoil than Libya is experiences today. Assad has the forces on the ground that if we and him did work together probably could roll up ISIS in a fairly quick manner. But that won't happen as we won't work with him. It also has been reported that part of the agreement to get the 5 Arab countries to join our little bombing campaign was that we agreed not to bomb Assad's forces.

    Also Assad has the backing of both Putin and Iran. This bombing can only help Assad as it weakens ISIS and some other rebel forces. But without troops on the ground to root these folks out after the bombs have fell, bombing may become just an inconvenience to them. But it would not surprise me if somehow the good old USA found a way to get rid of Assad which probably as far a troops on the ground goes, is our best hope. Then chaos and turmoil will reign. Perhaps that is the plan all along.

    1.)The vast majority in the anti war movement (myself being involved in it), was not against "war" itself, it was against "dumb wars" wars that were for 1.)a national resource, or 2.)a war that was all around dumb

    2.)Obama's "war doesnt", if you are against the recent rounds of bombing beause of this, thank GWB and the "war on terror"

    So now he waited too long? I'm confused. Call up your Congressman. I bet he is for it. I thought we all wanted to get ISIS? Now dissing Obama is more important? Good luck with that..

    This is another one of those undeclared wars. And the worst part is that this paper thin excuse to prepare to overthrow Assad. BTW, we do not have Assad's permission to do this.
    Trump Attacked A Syrian Airfield. Trump will be a one-term president.
