    Well, not to start an argument AGAIN , but you just pick one and then explain why. That's what we've been doing. I picked no way Jose because we don't have the money. Those missiles cost millions of dollars each, we don't know who these rebels really are and there MO is questionable among other reasons.

    Which is why there shouldn't be reasons in the poll answers.

    You have a point, but I just ignore that and speak for myself in my posts. But I do choose no way.

    I would agree though that in an indirect way it is totally our problem as well as the world's problem, I just don't think it always has to be OUR place to get involved. We have a strong military for our own defense, as well as to send a message to the rest of the effed up governments of the world to not mess with us. It should not be expected of us to expend our resources, which includes our people more than anything, on every single problem that the rest of the world has.

    Congress has become the crazy talkative neighbor, who we just want to leave us alone.

    Well, things are not always under the control of the people as they should be. Think about the "punishments" congressmen and women give one another, such as Charlie Rangel and his "censure" and he tried to fight even that. Anytime one of them does something wrong, they basically give one another a slap on the wrist and say "bad!" They also give themselves raises, etc. Once one is elected, it's not an easy process to get them out of office either, and then you have the dumbasses who will keep voting for the same guys each time.

    The problem is, there's no side in the fight that we'd want in power, no matter who wins, we lose. That's really how it is throughout the Middle East. We are not going to get any U.S. friendly regimes and by going in at all, on any side, we're just going to piss them off even more.

    Let them kill each other.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
