    It's beginning to look like what the president has in mind might be a little more than just a few bombs. What Obama is presenting us with is a confrontation with Syria, Iran, and Russia. Either we confront it as that, i.e., the reality, or we leave it alone. The other side of this is that an attack on Assad may actually force him to use CW in the near future to hang on to power. Then there's the chance that our attack will detonate some CW's there....

    As for myself....I don't support it under Obama any more than I would support it under a Bush or any other Republican.
    Because contrary to ad-nauseum leftist propaganda, conservatives can and do think rationally, especially in times of impending crisis.

    There's nothing rational about supporting a 10 year occupation in Iraq over the potential of having and using WMD's then not supporting strikes against a country that actually used WMD's.

    I think the Iraqi Kurds might have a little dispute with you over "potential".

    Well now I'm truly curious. What is it that makes you think there are WMD's in Syria? ....as opposed to none in Iraq?

    Replacing hardware, certainly. Replacing facilities and trained people, not so much, that takes time.

    Not if the stated goal is not to remove him from power, which it is. Saying achieving your stated goal is a failure is just silly.

    And if the world isn't going to stand by us, regardless how heinous the use of chemical weapons may be - who are we to presume the right to do it in the world's stead?

    Furthermore:
    1) Who pulled the trigger on the use of chemical weapons? We have yet to be told who did it and why. And a bunch of liberals here want us to do it - without knowing that answer to that question. Why? All I can think of is to help Obama save face.
    2) If we did bomb Assad, aren't we then helping the very people we've been fighting lo these past 12 years? How is it possible to save face given that is the practical consequence of attacking Assad, regardless our reasons?

    This is such an ill-advised action it's appalling.
    Really? What is our interest? Do you own a ****ing map?
