The well being of our country is more important than their career. It seems that they have become cowards and intimidated by what they perceive as peer pressure to not make waves. Only their going along with the admin is creating a tidal wave of chaos in our country.

Very good points. The Obama/Hillary administration foreign policies debacles in Libya, Egypt and now Syria have been this countries greatest ever foreign policy failures. We have highly sophisticated manpads now in the hands of Islamic terrorist. We have chemical WMD agents (chlorine gas) now in the hands of terrorist. What else have they been able to acquire as three nation states have been and are being imploded by the diabolical Obama/Hillary administration ?

They more or less now have to set the world on fire to cover up their ineptness. And that is simply due to the fact that big government progressives will never ever admit their policy failures.

I’m not in favor of Assad (backed by Russia), and I am DEFINITELY not in favor of the Al-Queda rebels that are backed by 0dumb0sh_t! All things being considered however , I hope the Assad troops stomp & beat the living sh_t out of the Al-Queda rebels back by 0dumb0sh_t. The enemy of 0dumb0 is the friend of mine!

Barry gets his wish ... he's a wartime President.

Barry's gotten us involved in more wars than any other President I can think of in my lifetime. He's been a wartime President since day one.

No replies? Didn’t think you would get any. Plus Reagan did nothing afterwards although the one who planned the attack on the Marines is supposedly dead.

The pretense for attacking Syria is "WMD". How credible is that claim?

According to PBS, Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said, "The Assad regime has used chemical weapons, including the nerve agent sarin, on a small scale, against the opposition multiple times in the last year." http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/world/jan-june13/syria_06-13.html

The report goes on to say, "The U.S. found no evidence that rebels have used chemical weapons."


This is the same Ben Rhodes that deleted references to the Al Qaeda attack at Benghazi.

http://www.weeklystandard.com/articles/benghazi-talking-points_720543.html


So how credible is the WMD claim? The claim is coming from the same guy who altered the reports of the Al Qaeda attack at Benghazi.

It seems Al Qaeda can do no wrong and must be aided and protected every step of the way.

This is what happens when nations in the Middle-East are played by other nations outside the Middle-East in order to move an agenda forward which does not have that nations interests in mind....rather a broader agenda that entails deposing of leaders in countries which stand in it’s way.

I am almost convinced that the reason “0” comes in thru the rear/last,...and does not lead....is because it’s our military might and our men who are now being used when all other avenues are exhausted....by the same powerful men and woman that are moving this agenda...’O’ is simply playing the role assigned him...and happy to do so.

Remember Michelle said we’d have to be dragged kicking and screaming?

I am praying for our troops.

PSALM 91 - PRAYER OF PROTECTION

1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
3 For he will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from deadly disease.
4 He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.
8 Just open your eyes,
and see how the wicked are punished.

9 If you make the Lord your refuge,
if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
and give them my salvation.”

Whether we’re talking Russia, China or the U.S., when a nation imposes its military power for purely economic reasons without moral authority, it deserves the ass-kicking it gets. And we are the aggressor in this match.

Obama trying to convince everyone that 150 innocents were killed with chemical weapons, and therefore we need to have a no-fly zone with border troops on the ready is a violation of everything America stands for. Assad, for whatever he is, has a right to maintain his nation’s security.

As far as “meating” me, please don’t.

He's been a wartime President since day one.

Good point. What I fear is that none of them so far has been big enough for him. The "Arab Spring" canard is all his and now can become a war suitably large for him to claim "leadership."

Supporting Jihad and the routine massacre of Christians makes us all war criminals. He does this without consent and with a supine Congress.

what is even scarier is that these idiot politicians in charge of the USA have ZERO qualifications, ZERO experience at anything which requires related talent or skill at management.

these people are idiots

a truck driver license requires more qualification and background checks than a top politician in power

I haven’t heard anybody who identified themself as Christian ask, or otherise try to get, weapons.
Maybe I missed a headline but it seems like Christians would try to be a bit defensive?

The many Muslim sectarian militias have the Christians outgunned and outnumbered. The Christians usually live in sharply defined areas as well, making them easy targets.

Did Obummer deploy a new unit of the Marines called the ‘Pansy Division?’ You know so that when Assad shoots and kills one of those troops, Barry can declare the fallen soldier a martyr for the gaystapo. Then he’s got the entire LGBT community supporting his ‘wag the dog’ strategy.

I’d rather have troops on the ground than create another 1980’s Afghanistan. Then again, i’d rather not support the syrian rebels, nor Assad at all. I’d rather have some sort of Western backed, non-Islamic monarch who’ll rule the country strictly but with respect for human rights. That’s the only way things are going to change.
