Didn't England say they HAD to wait for testing results from the UN people before committing--or did they just get smart & say flatout NO???

The news is saying Obama is thinking about options... well, that may be, but, things are also happening. The last two days we have seen military aircraft coming & going from BIA ( the closest full size airport to Syria) .... the types of which we rarely see. Certainly the air force is positioning for something. I hope it's all just practice.

The House of Commons said no by a narrow vote. Nobody cares what the people think. UN has said no as vetos from Russia and China have taken care of that one. No it's all on useless one.

I'm no friend or supporter of Assad but think about this whole situation for a moment. Assads troops have the upper hand in Damscus and pretty well kicking the rebels asses. Why risk using chemical weapons? Further if he was going to use them would he REALLY do it in Damascus? And he knows if he did there would be a stiff price to pay. It just doesn't make sense. It makes much more sense that the rebels would do as they are desparate. This looks like another false flag operation.

If we or the UN had evidence that Assad used chemical weapons, he should be charged as a war criminal and tried.

Figures Obama would be Totally against a Secular regime. Why is it everytime he comes out against the wrong side? I mean seriously , siding with the Muslim Brotherhood??? Hillary and Huma I can understand but jeezus.

What the hell is the moral outrage over this Gassing ( that nobody is sure where it came from...except Saddam in the lead up yrs back of course) when thousands were killed by conventional weapons the past year or so. GAs, Bomb....Beheading, burnt alive...whatever. Guess that didn't matter, right BO?

Note to Barry O, this is why you should support womens rights, this is what real ladies look like, and no they don't dig being told to wear Burkas.

I thought a voice from the past would be appropriate.

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone.

"It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children... This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."

It's all about Zionism period... You really want to care...

http://www.environmentalgraffiti.com/fe ... 69?image=3

If we attack Syria (as we will do as O is embarrassed, nothing more) a thousand missiles in the sand of Lebanon drop on Tel Aviv. Then what? If he drops a few bombs and Assad carries on we will really look stupid. No entry or exit strategy but at least he feels manly and all the libs care about is that now Chloe and Kims marriages are both in trouble. You have to understand the great dimwits at large just don't care.

Another voice of a past president, but spoken very recently:

"America has no functioning democracy at this moment"
-- Jimmy Carter
He was talking about Snowden, but it is widely applicable.

What a mess, nothing has been fired yet but it's already is a mess, we know, we know, but we wont tell you what we know. The puppet is getting orders he don't like. At least the media, CNN at least is critical on his actions, and I am surprised.

This is Iraq version two..

How come the sequestration can shut down a bunch of trivial things like White House tours, but it can't stop endless multi-million dollar vacations for President Obama and his family, or what will certainly amount to billions of dollars worth of live war games with Syria. We will be virtually indiscriminately killing the innocent people of a civilized nation so the wild savages can rampage over the ruins of Syria for decades to come. I would imagine that it will be only days after the bombings end that the Christians of Syria will be slaughtered mercilessly.

I'm the poster child for liberals here at NEPA, and I'm 100% against intervention in Syria at this point. It's not a "lib" thing or a "Neanderthal-throwback-conservative" :) thing, so don't be calling names among those who agree with you. Last polls I read say that over 90 percent of the US public agrees with you, so that's probably more "libs" than "conservatives" agreeing with you -- hope that doesn't make you change sides. :o

In 2007 Nancy Pelosi loved Assad. Now she wants him gone.

Note also that per this article, 10% of Syrians are Christians. When the quite stable and westernized Assad government has been toppled by the USA, and the radical extremist element is in charge, they will all be in some whoppingly serious danger.
