Yes, the red line has been crossed
No way Jose, not our problem
But of course it did not turned out to be that way. Look the Jihadi's think that the West is fighting against their religion!!! So now they are stepping up and trying to defend religion when in fact it is all about politics!!!
I was thinking about this recently. Cannot a trustworthy powerful religious leader differentiate and explain to them what we were up against? It is Assad not Islam the West is after g'damnit!!
What about the allies in Saudi Arabia. They should step in now. This is their best time to show off! Some high religious Islam priest should make the distinction of why West may be attempting to do this! They should point out to us Dardania, the Muslim country, that benefited from NATO intervention and airstrikes, was freed from Milloschevich dictatorship, and is now in peace to practice Islam, and be free in democracy! We should be used as an example of how it all worked just great!!
In short, if I may use their words (hopefully they may be reading this): Dardania is FULL of inferdel, yet mosques flourish and are untouched!!
If anything the mosques are even more protected now that they ever were before!!
It is not about religion, it is about regime!!
We'll leave the bumbling and cowardice to the Commander in Chief on this one
What is our vital national interest? Are you really that willing to take actions that could result in killing our Russian friends? And what happens when they respond by sinking the warships that fire the cruise missiles?
If we take this idiotic action so the idiot in the White house (and you) can feel good about yourselves are you telling me that there will be NO MORE KILLING?
With the exception of the most loyal of lapdogs, I haven't seen anyone in any significant proportion support this endeavor. This crosses all demographics. So, with all signs pointing to the people's will being Stay the Hell out of Syria, and this being a Representative government, and if they do go into Syria despite what the people want how many of you are going to vote against your incumbent should he or she have supported what looks like will be an eventual certainty?
If you do, you've no one to blame but yourself.
I have mixed feelings on us doing even the airstrikes; however, I could live with the airstrikes just as long as no boots hits the soil.
