    I'm sure they don't. I'm also sure it doesn't matter a damn.

    How many innocent people around him would the cruise missile kill?

    Re: Should we go into Syria

    One idea that I have no problem with...arena battle between the leaders of countries or groups who push for war.

    Like if Assad wants war he has to get in the ring and battle it out mano a mano with the opposition leader...whoever lives wins.

    That should work for everyone...hmmm I wonder how Bush Jr. woulda done with a face-off against Saddam; or Obama v. Assad?

    Any bets?? 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.

    what is the point of a drone?

    find him in his car and then send a missile into him.

    better yet, develop a drone that can carry a high powered rifle and take him out with one shot.

    again we do not live in a perfect world.

    The mobile rifle idea I like. War is hell, and somethings collateral damage occurs. unless we make our best attempts to minimize it, I am not for drones or cruise missiles. Both Clintoon and Obomba have improperly used these weapons in my opinion. You cannot use these urban settings unless they are cleared out areas already. We have lots of good snipers. Snipers should be used, or sniper drones. Drones and cruise missiles should be limited to military complexes, or groups in wide open areas only. Unless a war is actually in progress. Then we can be a little more loose with targets, and the innocent are aware to stay away f4om potential targets.

    I've read real polls that say 50% disapprove of military action and that 80% want Obama to seek congressional approval. Of course that 80% doesn't mean they support military action either, just that they want him to seek approval. I tend to think it's probably a little more than 50% who oppose it too.

    As far as DP members being an adequate representation of the American public . . . Probably not really, but jeez, I don't think we could be THAT far off, could we?

    IF DP represented the american public, romney would have been president, and the senate would be comprised of 80 republicans, 19 democrats, and Bernie sanders.

    Don't know how true that is. We have a pretty varied group I think.
