    You're confusing the Syria civil war/revolution with the use of chemical weapons. Two totally separate things. The U.S. made a decision not to intervene in the civil war. That has not changed. It is solely the use of chemical weapons, and their being against international war, that is the issue. That they were used during a civil war is irrelevant.

    Obama isn't dithering, IMO. He's weighing the options and giving careful consideration to what we should do. This is what I want. I don't want a leader who does knee jerk reactions or succumbs easily to pressure from other countries or the Sec of State. Obama has a good track record in making thoughtful foreign policy decisions. If only GWB had given more thoughtful consideration to going into Iraq and not succumbed to the pressure from Rumsfeld and Cheney.

    One of us is surely under a rock. There is no proof. All the proof indicts the rebels. Live with it. I'll put some kibbles and bits under your rock.

    Do you agree with this statement?

    My answer is NO and here is why:

    Even if we do nothing about it, that is not to suggest that if someone launched a chemical attack on one of our allies, a NATO member, or on American soil, that we would do nothing about it.
    I do not think there is one single person on the face of the entire planet that thinks we would not respond in a very massive and aggressive way if we were attacked ourselves. We might even respond with the nuclear option depending on the severity.

    Obama is wrong.
    And that should mean something coming from me, as I strongly support Obama on all of his internal policy.

    Please explain in detail if you think I am mistaken.
    I'd love for you to sway my mind.
    No, and I don't understand (and never have) why some think the U.S. need to be the world's police force.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.
