    Well if you think conservatives are being "rational" not supporting action in Syria then you'll really have to explain to me how invading a country 20 years after the use of Chemical weapons is Kosher and military strikes soon after the use isn't.

Then there's the chance that our attack will detonate some CW's there....

    Well for one the use of chemical weapons by the government against their population. That kind of leads me to believe they have WMD's....

    No. There is not sufficient evidence that it was Assad's regime that used the weapons based on what we are being told. Given the recent scandals such as the IRS, Fast and Furious and Benghazi I simply don't believe anything they are telling us. I would need other outside unbiased information. This is about saving face for Obama, not the US. I'm not willing to be a part of destabilizing the ME just to cover his punk ass. He spoke out of turn, it's not our problem as a nation.

    The invasion of Iraq was not predicated on the existence of CW alone. The existence and use of CW in Syria is not the only consideration, either. Yep, it's bad, but it can be much, much worse unless we are prepared to maintain our presence and pressure for an extended time. You might want to take a quick look at the disposition of our Navy right now. What ships are in port, and why, before you get too enthusiastic.

    I own lots of maps. So what? But if it's that easy, maybe you can spell it out for me - especially how owning a map let's you know who pulled the trigger on the use of chemical weapons, or why. And what does owning a map have to do with answering the question about why its in our interest to help the very people out whom we've been fighting for the past 12 years. Or what does owning a map have to do with our need to bomb Assad when the rest of the world refuses to stand by such an action.

    Yes, I own a ****ing map. So what?

    I hope you're correct. We are not the only players in the area though, and some have far more to lose than we do.

    Actually....quit the opposite. I suspect that they aren't thinking at all....they are simply basing their feelings on which party in in charge.

    Ok, then where's the beef with Bush's actions in Iraq? Surely you're aware that government used chemical weapons against their population too, right?

    NO! The US is not the police of the world. We need to start working on our own problems and let other countries deal with thier own problems or let some other country be the police. IMO we need to withdraw ALL troops from everywhere except embassies and let people know that if they F*** with us or our CLOSE allies then we will either send an assassin team or just bomb the crap out of them (depending on situation). We have the technology now to not have to send one single man/woman into another country. We should use it instead of being chicken ****s about not hurting "innocent lives". War is ugly and will always be ugly. Treat it as such.

    The US has NOT been in some type of war or another for the past 30 years straight....and people wonder why some call the US empiralistic....
