The measure would pave the way for the US to declare an aerial blockade on Syria.

Blockades are an act of war. Is this a now expected Act of Congress or another unilateral action to be taken by The One?

A blockade! This is why the planet hates America, because we keep making
all those peaceful people angry at us. Who the hell do we think we are anyway,
the world police? Children are dying in the dark of night!

Damn you Bush! no wait...

Probably a good place for Russian to find out how well their S 400 system works.

Guess this is what we have to do to isolate Iran.

Sucks, but that’s the way it is.

It’s like setting mines in the waterways except the mines are mounted on the B and F-series and in the air.

Where noone can hear you scream.

'US to announce aerial blockade on Syria'

US readies for possibility of intervention without UN resolution,

Do the headline and the first line of the article seem different ??

I believe that Syria has several ports along the Med. Also, they can bring in items from Lebanon.

If Iran brings in hardware and men by plane will it affect them? Will the U.S. fire on a plane from Iran?

Sitting on their smug, fat, hypocritical arsenals now that a 'cool guy' is doing it. I don't like to feel hate, but those sorts sure inspire it. I endured their spittle and fairy antics when counter-protesting them after 9/11.

Stick up for the Resident now, you creeps. I guess you like war after all if it's Obambi's war.

This puts the ancient Syriac Christian population directly at risk.

The Alawites are the only protection they have against radical Islamists.

I figured that might be the real agenda here. Get rid of the current regime, which while not very nice, protects the christians whom in turn help them out. With Assad gone the christians would be exterminated very quickly.

Or Iraq. I expect the Russians to challenge us - do we really want to start shooting down their airplanes? Just so the Brotherhood can take power and kill another 2,000,000 Christians. Are dead Christians THAT IMPORTANT to this president?

Hopefully this stunt means the END to Obama’s legitimacy as president.

My sister in law is a Syrian Christian. She is very worried about her family there. Her father was assaulted by the “resistance” and has a AK-47 pointed to his head. The only thing that saved him was he was recognized by another “rebel” who came from the same village. I am trying to figure out how to get her family out. They stopped handing visas to the U.S. a year ago.

'With Assad gone the christians would be exterminated very quickly.'

Funny they already have a model for that:' The intercession is to be modeled after NATO's efforts in Kosovo'. Christians were wiped out.

Interesting keywords on this thread.

NOTHING in or out. Enforced by air power.

We have the capability.

The government is very tight on giving out visas these days. You cannot talk openly about it the telephone because the government are constantly monitoring it.

These guys have been at each other’s throats since that Cain guy whacked Able in the head?

Why do we want to get involved in other’s civil wars? This is like one of Disney’s Alladin 6 straight to video sequels. You’ve seen it all before, you know how it ends, and the cast is third rate. Not worth wasting your time over.

But our government cannot seem to help itself. Sometimes Ron Paul almost makes sense. I said almost.

This is all fantasy. Its a trial balloon.

This is a couple steps above McCains blathering, it is designed to desensitize us. The media will discuss it until the average American simply turns the channel and accepts this intervention as 'old hat"

...and this most certainly is not our fight.
