    Hopefully they'll say "No way, sorry Mr. President. Now suck it up." LOL
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    We can hope. I've also heard rumors that he might ignore them if they say no and take some kind of action anyway. I don't know how true that is though. I guess we just have to wait and see what happens.

    what will more likely happen is that the congress will do nothing because its members are afraid to make a stand or take a position on this issue. why give these people legs if they won't make a attempt to stand up for somthing.

    I keep hearing some of our war-mongering fellow members claim the majority of Americans support intervention. I notice that in this poll 87% of the 155 votes do NOT want intervention in Syria. Do we make up a "representative sample???" LOL

    Be careful what you ask for. They will likely sign off on a short-term set of bombings. They don't have much choice with elections coming up.

    This is a "self selected" group. People who fight each other on the Internet are not an accurate representation of the US population in general.

    Agreed. It probably has a rather large error rage. Still, not high enough to believe the majority supports intervening with force.

    Welp, it seems like most Americans agree with most of US...no intervention in Syria.

    Most in U.S. still oppose Syria strike as Obama seeks action | Reuters

    As Syria war escalates, Americans cool to U.S. intervention: Reuters/Ipsos poll | Reuters

    Here's an NBC poll saying it's split though.
