    Otherwise you could kick Assad and then get back to Al-Qaeda maybe?
    I'd rather just sit back and let them fight each other. I feel no need to have our troops over there getting involved in this mess.

    Art 1
    Congress shall have the power:

    To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offences against the Law of Nations;

    To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;

    To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;

    To provide and maintain a Navy;

    To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;

    Art 2
    The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States
    Its pretty clear that the constitution was written to have congress decide when we go to war. And the Presidents role is to command the military when that happens. Isnt Obama a constitutional professor?

    I think the 17 people who voted to go in because the red line had been crossed, need to brush up on their reading and comprehension skills. There is zip, zero, nada evidence that Assad used Chemical Weapons. There is beaucoup evidence that the rebels used chemical weapon at least two times. I realize that the USA lapdog press hasn't published the evidence of use by the rebels, so search the Internet. Actually find out what is going on. If you suspect CIA intrigue, you're getting warm. Maybe this Nation did learn something from GW Bush's huge lies to get us in to war. Could the citizens be wising up after all.

    So this will be all over when Congress tells Hussein "no you can not shoot missiles at Assad".
    Anyone want to guess what faux crisis will be shoved at us next to deflect from the real issue(s)?

    As several people have pointed out, Obama can use military force for 90 days without congressional approval. Asking for Congress permission is not to launch a few missiles. While Obama can say it's to launch a limited strike on Syria, Congressional approval will actually grant Obama sweeping wartime powers, which he'll abuse of course.

    Case of national security my ass.
    Just my $0.02 worth
    did anybody think of the possibility that bombing a place that
    may be a manufacturing plant for chemical weapons .. could
    cause the release of all sorts of nasty chemicals into the area,
    and thus killing civilians who just happened to be down-wind from
    the bombed factory. This whole fiasco is a VERY BAD IDEA
    One bit that I can think of, ( probably won't happen ... but ... )
    Obama orders the bombing of Syria, and the next thing that happens
    is the UN labels him a CRIMINAL and demands his arrest & trial for
    a long list of violations.

    oh well .....

    I for one would just love to see American 'boots on the ground' in Syria, imagine what a fiasco that would be?
    I suppose we could tromp thur Iraq on our way to Damascus but wouldn't the port of Haifa be the logical choice?

    At this point it is not about troops. It is by allowing them to fight each other did it gathered extremists such as Al-Qaeda. Allowing them to be involved more and there may be less to gain.

    If Al-Qaeda establishes root contact with the majority of the population then you have another Afghanistan in Syria. Who would benefit from that even they manage to kick Assad, Russia, and Iran at a high life price?

    On the other hand if Assad wins there may be more retaliation. There may be media black out Russia style, where people may be put to death squads and no one would know.

    It seems the best way to do this now would be to kick Assad, reach the people, and build on them against extremists there. Kinda like Morsi in Egypt. More work but this should put a plug into "this mess" as you state.
