Well, that was Bush's mistake -- he went and got a resolution from the UN, and permission from the US Congress, and he went on TV, and he was very straightforward about the whole thing. What a moron!
Obama's going about it just right -- he's quietly sneaking US troops into Iraq so that we can fight Syria and install yet another al Qaeda dictatorship in the Middle East. America will wake up some day and say "Wha' happen?" Now that's the way to git 'er done!
The al Qaeda whackjobs are battling for control of the Syrian government using the weapons supplied to them in Benghazi, courtesy of the United States. When they topple the Assad regime, they will have complete control of whatever WMD Quadaffi had squirreld away in Libya, plus Syria's WMD, as well as the WMD transferred into Syria by Saddam in 2003.
Of course there's no reason to fear that they will turn these weapons on Israel. Of course not.
