    People seem to forget that a lot of these groups want a Sharia run state, and we are going to help them create it.
    Funny, I just said in another thread that by us INVOLVING OURSELVES, we are creating a threat to our own national security.

    You would think by recent military history, these asses in charge of this country wouldn't be so quick to get involved.

    Ma'am, those asses don't care. It isn't their kids getting sent to be killed or coming back injure or with PTSD.

    I just talked to a friend of mine last night, whose son was killed in Iraq in 2006. He was 21, and had a wife and baby here. She was beside herself over this whole mess.

    I live in a military town and know lots of army personnel and their families. To say the overall feeling is one of disgust over getting involved militarily is strong, would be an understatement.

    Sorry to hear about your friend's son and his family.

    These politicians are political elites that don't care about us, but it isn't just that. The economic elites don't care (look at how they crashed the economy and got bailed out with our money). No one cares at all.


    EDIT: It's about time we bucked all of these fools and started caring for ourselves.

    And people call me crazy for being an anarchist.

    Re: Should we go into Syria

    I wonder if our government is aware of this? These are the "people" we are aiding.

    (BEIRUT) — Al-Qaida-linked rebels have launched an assault on a regime-held Christian village in the densely populated west of Syria and new clashes erupted near the capital, Damascus — part of a brutal battle of attrition each side believes it can win despite more than two years of deadlock.

    As the world focused on possible U.S. military action against Syria, rebels commandeered a mountaintop hotel in the village of Maaloula and shelled the community below Wednesday, said a nun, speaking by phone from a convent in the village. She spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.

    The attack came hours before a Senate panel voted to give President Barack Obama authority to use military force against Syria — the first time lawmakers have voted to allow military action since the October 2002 votes authorizing the invasion of Iraq.

    The measure, which cleared the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on a 10-7 vote, was altered at the last minute to support “decisive changes to the present military balance of power” in Syria’s civil war, though it ruled out U.S. combat operations on the ground. It was expected to reach the full Senate floor next week.

    True, it is about politics and not religion. The war is against Political Islam, not Religious Islam. Political Islam is merely another despicable political ideology like the Nazis, and it is unfortunate that so much of Religious Islam allows Islamists to use religion as a cover for their political ambitions. A few weeks before she was assassinated, Benazir Bhutto survived another assassination attempt and raged afterwards that "These are not Muslims! Muslims do not make war on women!"

    I too have said in at least two other places that we are inviting another strike, maybe like 911, if we pursue such a course.

    Re: Should we go into Syria

    if we value our ability to be a world power and our ability to back up our talk we would invade.
    that said the hornets nest that is now syria is a place that has forfieted all claims to legitimacy by killing its own people with international illegal weapons of sarin gas.
    if we want to stabilize the area we need to be decisive something that the weak administration knows nothing of this is a consequentialistic debate...
    what happens if we do nothing.

    Very true. But we have no leadership in this country for the next 41 months, and anything that Obama tries to do will only make the situation worse. The incompetence of this administration is truly astonishing.
