First where’s the money coming from. We are in the middle of Sequestration.
Second, its ironic the Regime which opposed the Iraq War is for intervention in Syria tho Saddam used chemical weapons on his citizens and violated the UN ceasefire.
Third, who the heck are we helping? How do we know which rebels are Al queda and which are not.
Not really. The contras hadn’t sworn allegiance to Al Qaeda.
It sure wouldn’t surprise me. I think there are deep dark places in the intelligence agencies which are in dire need of scrutiny.

Why can’t the Saudi’s arm their own allies? Why do we need to help the Sunnis against the Shia? It’s not our fight.
The flea-bitten dog is wagging ... little barry needs a biiiig diversion, so he declares war on Syria, a Russian satellite regime. This enemy regime of barry’s will get America in a world war if he is not removed quickly.
When will the Nobel committee take back his Peace Prize?
The current regime is also a “terrorist supporting, America hating regime.”
Yes, except we supported the Shia in Iraq and now we are supporting the Sunni in Syria.
With all of Bush's faults Obama had surpassed Bush long ago regarding war. There's a great argument that both Afghanistan under the Taliban was a threat to our national security (AKA Sept 11th, and as far as Iraq goes, Saddam Hussein had been shooting at out jets enforcing the UN Resolutions which Saddam failed to abide by after first agreeing with them.
Obama, on the other hand, involves us with other nations' civil wars and worse (such as Egypt) other nations' protest. And if that's not bad enough, replaces friendly governments with the same crowd that supported the attacks on Sept 11th and worse than that has been arming the very people that carried out the attacks on 911.
Compared to Obama, GW Bush looks like Ghandi.
man, Putin is looking more and more like our friend. The WOT is over, we joined the terrorists. I keep thinking I have seen the worst and then something else comes along. This is so unbelievable.
No fly zone is also being implemented....
Top Left On Drudge:
Syrian ‘rebels’ pledge loyalty to Al-Qaeda...
Executed Teenager 2 Days Ago For Insulting Islam...
ADMIN CONSIDERS RESETTLING THOUSANDS OF SYRIAN REFUGEES IN AMERICA...
Even DUers are pissed off about this.
Jim, you nailed it. Sadly the obfuscation games and outright lies by the Left have guaranteed that they’ll be used against us.
Frack here, frack now and frack the M.E. Frack 0bama, too.
I have a different take on this.
Bluntly stated. Syria is going to get flattened and little than nothing left to govern.
I say this because it’s possible this might be the Damascus thing.....Syria is not going to go down at all easily as they have proven for three years now. Assad (Iran) is not going down without a terrible fight and none of the groups fighting there care about life to begin with...important to remember they all love war and fighting to the death.
So those who are orchestrating this attack now against Syria are not going to piece meal their attacks like in Egypt, Libya and even Iraq. Someone there is ‘already’ using chemical weapons..and I have no doubt Iraq’s WMD’S are there.
A long while back it was stated if this ended up we’d have to be involved there would be no pussy footing around. They may hit their military bases etc. first...but Assad will think nothing of bringing out chemical weapons and all that he has.
Therefore...this is going to be one very nasty battle...and there won’t be much left in Syria when it’s over.
We will piss them off enough for Syria attack Israel. Then we will see (not) what balls Obama has.
If you read Ezekial, you already know the answer.
My prayers for the Jewish state..
I saw that.....now we’re bringing Syrian “refugees” to America??????? What the heck for? They’ll be on food stamps, subsidized housing, and any other welfare program we have, for forever. We can only hope none are al queida.
My fears exactly. But I think Iran will attack Israel first as a retaliation for American intervention. And they’ll all turn on us over their own squabbles/civil wars. 0bama has proven the great uniter alright. Just not on our soil.
Obama built a huge base in Rutbah, Iraq. It’s 110 miles from their to Damascus. Friend in the military have told me he has quietly moved 2 brigades to there and another brigade is in Jordan now. So this has been planned all along. Why the hype on the Chemical weapons? It was all planned, for the oil companies
This means the eventual end to the Jordanian government. Then, the house of Saud will have the jackets turn on the masters. At least that one will be fun to watch.
The only oil we will see in three years will come from ND. The Russians will control the gas going to Europe.
Damascus will be in rubble.
Jerusalem will have the stink of sarin on it for weeks.
Let Muslims kill Muslims. God is Great.

I’m going to stick my neck out and say this is going to be a go against Damascus....and a hard strike. They are not going to ease into this with Assads chemical weaponary ready to fire.
If and when this is a go...I think Israel will take out Irans nuclear sites...within the time frame...before or after or in between. It would give Israel her cover....and chances of being criticized for doing so will be almost mute.
Russia and China have been moving their ships etc. for some time now....I believe they are aware the powder -keg is ready to blow and are stationing themselves to protect their interests...naturally...so would we.
This has been three years coming and Assad, or whoever, crossed the line with chemical weapons.....be it purposeful or not, no nations are going to sit back while that might escalate....and Assad has shown he will not go away....and quite capable of doing what he wants.
We can complain and speculate all we want about Obama and our own scandals here....but this has been coming for awhile now...and if people think about it this news is not surprising...we knew it would come to this in time.
People in Muslim countries are always at war or preparing for war or living under the thumb of thugs. Why on earth would we bother to get involved? There’s NO win here. None. Either side that gets in will be our enemy.
It isn't a hype about chemical weapons...we know they've been using them in Syria...doesn't matter who is using them..the fact they are being used is enough to intervene in this....and I suspect many nations are supporting stopping that insanity. Just a friendly warning..I wouldn't be sharing about where our troops are......loose lips sink ships.
<....”I think Iran will attack Israel first as a retaliation for American intervention”....>
If anything Israel will be taking out Irans Nuclear in the heat of this, likely timed along with any surge against Damascus.
Israel has been ready for any of this...in all ways.
I went over to DU and it’s actually comical seeing them bellyache that their King has No Clothes...regrets are abounding they voted for him...
My preference would be to step back, step away from the conflict, and let Russia run the show. The Russians don't want Iran running the Middle East any more than we do.
Gas attacks are the new normal.
Syria has the right to use any weapon available to them in their war on Al Queda.
Because they aren’t conservative and they need bennies and a job. College tuition and re-signing bonuses don’t hurt either.
Putin would just as soon they sling things out, with his help of course, he sees no concern that Jordon, Israel and Lebanon are now seeing this war seep over their borders. As for Iran...their election bears into this equation...Fri. will be telling on that front. But Russia and Iran are bedfellows, even though we know Russia is simply pimping Iran for Putins own agenda..
Obama consistantly hesitates at making decisions when we can lead and win and make a difference...and it always costs us far more than is necessary in every way....though of course i believe that is his intention.
The problem is someone is throwing around chemical weapons...and the war is going into Jordon, Lebanon and Israel. So at this point it's got to be dealt with....if it's not dealt with then no doubt we'll be headed to a third ww.
Don’t worry, they’re just advisors......
Don’t worry. They’re just advisors.........
<....”No one said “Boo!” when Saddam used WMD against the Kurds”....>
They certainly did and it was all over the news complete with dead bodies of those affected. And prior, if you remember Iraq and Iran were at war at that time.
If anything was learned from the Kurds...is it cannot happen again.
First wheres the money coming from. We are in the middle of Sequestration.
Unfortunately, women and children will have to die and people will have to starve (thats what libs are saying the sequestration is doing) to death because obbama thinks sending weapons to al-Qaeda is of utmost importance. (while he protects us from al-Qaeda by spying on us, of course) This is total looney-tune stuff. The Syrians hate the rebels more than they hate Assad.
Not when it comes to chemical weapons and their fighting has moved over the borders to surrounding nations.
Yep, chemical weapons and the occasional collateral damage are ok in my book when fighting people that cut out hearts and eat them on youtube screaming “allah ackbar”. Totally fins with it. They could nuke them and it would be 100% reasonable.
Ok then....you’re forgetting that Israel and our troops are over there....a nuke or chemical weapons would affect everyone of them....and that is NOT 100% reasonable by any means.
All weapons sent to Hezbollah will be used against Israel. That is the only reason Hussein supports Syrian “rebels”.
I’m not forgetting anything. I hate al queda and islamic jihadis. I don’t blame anyone for taking any measure to destroy them.
I wish. Hezbollah is siding with Assad on this one because the Al Queda Jihadis in Syria are so insane they scare them a little. Seriously, check out the head honcho of Hezbollah’s speeches lately. He’s basically saying “we were going to sit this one out but these people are NUTS!”
Iz a pig'z azz pork?
More than disturbing. I’ve never been a ‘conspiracy’ theorist, but since Benghazi, I’m well aware of what the powers that be are capable of doing to our own in order to further their agenda. Now I look back and am questioning ALL of it and it’s no longer a left/right issue...Just what would the government do...how far would they go...how many Americans would they kill or let die in order to garner public support for going to war, for taking our guns, for imposing martial law? I’ve quit being loyal...I’m questioning everything....if seeking the truth now means I’m wearing a tin-foil hat...I do so proudly.
