    Re: Should we go into Syria

    Are you folks ready to take on Russia?

    I wish we would have had at least enough time to lick our Afghanistan/Iraq wounds and build up our rock pile again before taking on another country.

    Face it folks. Like it or not, it appears that the United States is just a warring nation, plain and simple. Any excuse will do. We turned out to be exactly what the other nations around the world claimed we were. War dogs of the Nth degree.

    He is honest about it anyways. It takes a lot of courage to admit that.

    The UN has had two years to act in Syria and has accomplished nothing. So it's time for some other people to step in and do what needs to be done. That is about to happen, whether anyone likes it or not.

    But there is such a thing as a just war.

    Yeah, we dropped the ball. If we were going to act, it would have been when this all got started. However, I'm not for random conflicts anyway, stay home, not our fight.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    I hate to admit this, but it seems to be true.
    We always hear about..." our vital interests in the area " or " if we don't intervene, who will? ".
    The trump card is usually..." if we don't police the world, someone else will, we can't risk that... "
    At this point, I think most Americans and the world are willing to take that risk.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    Is Russia and/or China ready to take on the USA?

    I don't think so.

    Both of those countries have plans for the future, and you can bet your last dollar that those plans don't include recovering from a post WWIII Nuclear Apocalypse

    War is big business. And those profiting from it do not usually have to put any blood or skin into the game. America overwhelmingly wants to NOT get involved in Syria. Does anyone think for a second that it matters what we think? If America needs to go to war, I submit it is our own war dogs we should declare that war on.

    China and Russia have nukes too. The great equalizer. Besides, they may be able to conquer us without firing a shot. As we deplete our munitions, national treasure and lives all across the globe playing John Wayne, they will simply foreclose upon us when we are done.
