    Re: Should we go into Syria

    Obama cannot move according to Boehner and Boehner refuses to convene the House.

    He has more pressing business in Idaho trying to shore up a sitting Repub congressman who is being TEAparty primaried.

    Thus, we hear Boehner promising a 'whale of a fight', no matter the issue.

    If he had to move quickly, it was about 2 years ago. He had even the morale to strike on Syria. 2012 was most deadly year on Syria and still no one cared at all.
    Attacking now is so pointless and have no more reasons/morale.
    Besides of that no proves are yet on space if govern used chemical weapons.
    What's the bad if Assad win over rebels?
    Syrians themselves will judge the regime.
    The Syrian rebels came from nowhere and Syrian people are not supporting them.

    every country has its weak points, no one is perfect.
    but, unlike Bush, Obama is making them clear.

    And what exactly is that supposed to mean? People have been criticizing Bush for setting policies that exposed our limitations and weaknesses since the build up to the Iraq War. It's a staple part of his legacy that his wars were unsuccessful efforts at creating two pro-West democracies, one of which is being pushed into Iran's camp by its newly empowered Shi'a majority and the other of which is being overtaken by the Taliban at a grassroots level. At best, Iran will be partitioned between Shi'a, Sunnis, and Kurds so that the entire population and its industries don't wind up in Iran's court, and the Taliban will focus on drugs rather than Islamic radicalism.

    I don't think that he really needs Boehner or the Congress to get this done...

    And he can't get them home anyway. They won't come back to D.C.

    Obama had a conference call with 26 of them today. That's not good enough.

    Would you trust M. Bachmann with state secrets?

    He needs to listen to people like Republican Rep. Rogers, one who can be trusted.
