    We've know for decades that Syria had an extensive weapons supply and capability. (not even including what they got from Iraq)

    The only non-surprise is the bumbling regime leader we have here.

    But hey, nice that your complimenting the MSM's continuing support of dear leader.

    Alternative energy is fine but until it's ready we should provide as much of our own fossil fuel as possible and quit funding terrorist sponsoring countries.

    One thought is this. As long as oil isn't excessively expensive, why shouldn't we deplete theirs first? save ours for when everyone else runs out.
    If we had a president with that as his policy it would be worth discussing but we have a president dead set against ever using our fossil fuel reserves so the point as of now is moot. When an ant fossil fuel person says what you did I roll my eyes but when someone like you says it I take you serious. If it was stated policy I think the debate would be which is preferable, saving our reserves or not funding terrorist states. Then there is the jobs going after our energy would create which we could sure use right now.

    If you insist on using 40 year old, poor designs then yes, you might have a problem.

    So let's offer a prize for the best designs for large, medium and small nuclear energy systems and then let's build them everywhere. You get your clean alternative energy, we get inexpensive electricity and the nation's economy booms (not literally...)

    There are other "problems" with nukes too. Where to put the waste is just one problem.

    If we could figure out answers to those questions, it would be perfect.

    My personal preference is to wrap the stuff up and dump it in the Marianas Trench (or anyplace where one tectonic plate is sliding over another) so Mother Earth can recycle the stuff in her core.
