    I'm surprised so many Conservatives are against it...I thought that Obama not helping the rebels was a main criticism from the right?

    More like from the Neo Cons. Just sayin.

    Very true, I shouldn't paint all conservatives with the same brush

    Right. I want a brand new brush when you paint me. None of those dirty, worn out brushes with the bristles sticking out every which way and old paint caked near the top.

    Yes. They're the least worst option. Unfortunately, we don't have reliable democratic forces in Syria like we do in Iraq with the Peshmerga.

    That is important but ultimately not part of my decision... arming these guys is just a bad idea for many reasons and we need to stay out of Syria... at least until we solve or help solve Afghanistan, Iraq, ISIS, Israel/Hamas, North Korea, Iran, USSR/Ukraine and the ****ing Mexican Border!!!

    Yoiu left out ending racism, stopping ebola and curing cancer.

    I am only interested in curing the cancer or non-racists and giving Ebola to racists... so they didn't make my list.
