    3- This is a problem amongst 2 groups where the Syrian Government isn't our ally, but the Rebels have ties to Al-Qaeda. So, we have nothing to gain and lots to lose by going to war there.

    4- This one's just a bonus reason. Not that I believe the beliefs or disbeliefs of others is always necessarily a clear legitimate justification to have an opinion, but rather it's just the icing on the cake, so to speak. The UK Parliament recently voted against intervention in Syria. Which is basically saying that it isn't even in the interest of assisting our allies. And that if we got involved, then we're doing so as a form of disrespect towards our allies.
    This is nothing more than Obama involving himself in a messy situation, and now he's trying to save face. This backfires on us either way now. He was arrogant, and now he's paying the price, or actually WE will pay the price. This whole situation just turns my stomach.

    Re: Should we go into Syria

    There may indeed be some accuracy in that statement. We should be on the same side as Russia in this situation. NOT siding with Al-Qaeda!!!

    How odd would it be if: we actually told the Rooskies that if they wanna put boots on the ground in Syria in support of Assad
    we'd offer material support (and air cover) ? Can't you see who we are fighting here? Do you buy that crap that we can't know who to support?
    That each side is as bad as the others? Syria is a craphole but at least it was a craphole where its people weren't being killed en masse hah that would be
    like an Iraqi pining for the days of American occupation because as of today they are in the middle of a shooting civil war?
    It is all so bloody easy for us to sit here in our 1st world countries with our 1st world problems and pass judgement on the folks
    being killed by the tens of thousands by the jihad jonnies. wake the F up. Will the next 9-11 have to be a truck bourne
    13 kiloton Iranian enriched Uranium Gun-type fission weapon detonated on our soil to get you to think we should pick a side in this Crusade?

    *ha ha ha that will certainly draw the attention of the NSA monitoring algorithm just to be sure lemme throw in a few more for good measure*

    Now, I know how damaging an ordinary plutonium fissile tritium that was tampered with barelyllium can be regarding driving X-ray into an ablation! But... When joined in with SUPERCRITICALITY and IMPLOSION... Steady there fella! That can take in the entire half of the planet!!

    How are you informed with all this!!! You were not suppose to know this at this time of century?!!?

    I think that is happening too. It is about face now. Go ahead throw some bombs and get the heck out from supporting Al-Qaeda (if they indeed are the prime beneficiaries from this intervention).

    Otherwise you could kick Assad and then get back to Al-Qaeda maybe?

    Re: Should we go into Syria

    On another note, the UN is expecting a strike and is thus leaving:

    International weapons experts leave Syria, U.S. prepares attack

    Putin demands more data:

    Putin demands US prove Syria chemical arms use

    Ahh, Syria! Why oh why did you had to bring in Al-Qaeda into this!! Would have made things so much more easier! Now they want to send in a message that with Russia, Iran, and terrorists backing Assad they can even get away with freaking gas!!

    Re: Should we go into Syria

    I am going to just throw this here for the heck of it:

    What if this Al-Qaeda is no longer as evil as it once was with Bin Laden stationed in Afghanistan? You have been kicking some Al-Qaedan butt for so long that perhaps these are now the remaining good guys?

    Re: Should we go into Syria

    I bet the Nobel committee is REALLY regretting its peace prize now. Obama is on TV saying going to attack Syria no matter what congress says, but hes going to go ask them first so he can then ignore them and the citizens who don't support him either. And of course he gave his speech and then walked away without answering any questions. Must have a tee time.

    Re: Should we go into Syria

    Obama speaks. He will seek authorization from Congress to strike...but that he feels he has full authority to do so with or without their approval.

    Case of national security my ass.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.
