    I'll be in and out pol. Hopefully to bring a little common sense. Of course as the joke goes, when lack common sense was brought up in a room full of politicians, everyone of them brought out their change/coin purse to make sure they had their cents.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    For God sake, NO!

    All provocations must be ignored. Syria is a sovereign nation in case somebody forgot.
    It's better that their kill each other off than igniting WW3, which most likely will happen if Syria is attacked from outside.

    The rebels have used chemical weapons for a second time. Smite those mothers. We are the bad guys because our intelligence or lack of intelligence agencies are fomenting the rebellion and instability in Syria. Face facts. The UN is not going to give approval. We are trying to weasel a way to bomb the crap out of them and claim it was justified. Syria has not attacked us. How do we help Syria by bringing WAR, DEATH, AND CHAOS to that Nation?

    Another NO in a sea of noes.
    There has to be a better way...
    All possible arms to either side must be blocked....humanitarian care only...
    And, probably for the first time in our history, we have to erase "hate".

    As much as President Obama wants to establish another radical Islamic theocratic government and has suspended the Constitution to unilaterally go to war to do so, I still 1.) oppose this and 2.) do not believe he can lawfully use the U.S. military for his own world-view ideological agenda.

    Mornin"DF. It just keeps getting worse. Now the Brits are saying they may not have to have a UN Mandate.

    Syria crisis: UK and US move closer to intervention
    Foreign secretary says Britain and allies could intervene in Syria without the authority of United Nations.....



    Britain and the US are inching towards a military attack against the regime of Bashar al-Assad after William Hague said all other options have failed over the past year.

    As the Syrian president said the US would face failure if it intervened in his country, the UK foreign secretary said Britain and its allies could intervene without the authority of the UN.

    Hague, who insisted Britain shared a common position with the US and France, told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "We have tried those other methods, the diplomatic methods, and we will continue to try those. But they have failed so far."

    Russia and China are likely to veto any UN security council resolution authorising military action, but Hague said such a move could be legal under international law even without UN approval.

    "It is possible to take action based on great humanitarian need and humanitarian distress. It is possible to do that under many different scenarios," he said. "But anything we propose to do, the strong response we have talked about, whatever form that takes, will be subject to legal advice, must be in accordance international law.".....snip~

    The Brits say their patience are wearing thin.....do you think that's for the Rebels and all they have massacred? Over 40K.....Where was the Brits mouths at when the Syrian Rebels refused all Negotiations and Peace talks? Ya mean that rubberband didn't snap from the get go? Especially with the Rebels saying so directly.

    Although one has to ask.....why would the Brits listen to anything the French were saying in the first place, over Syria?

    The OIL in Syria is closer to Total and BP distribution networks. They get their OILY IOU from helping in Iraq. And another thing is the al Queda rebels have only used chemical weapons twice and that seems to be OK, like torture, domestic spying, media manipulation, etc.
