Are we involved YET AGAIN in another civil war FAR away from us?
Are we spending $$ and soldiers lives picking the WRONG side again?
There is no RIGHT side in these wars, just all WRONG sides.

Yeah but it’s different now, now Obama is sending our soldiers and dollars into foreign conflicts, so it’s OKEE DOKEE.

I guess the Left believes that Obummer can do no wrong. But, then "Left" says it all--values that have NOTHING to do with Christ, Europe or America.

They probably figure you for one those Bible thumping gun owners who believe in traditional families so don’t care about your opinion. You know they consider all us Conservatives to be mentally ill.

Boy, the next time our fearless president uses the phrase “red line”, every dictator on earth will shake in his boots . . . From laughter.

I assume all those so-called “freedom fighters” passed FBI background checks, right? Oh, and by the way, they’re being given only BATFE-approved firearms certified for “sporting purposes,” right?

Remember US troops having to fight Iraqis armed with the weapons we sent them during the 1980s to fight Iran?

In addition to my general distrust as to where our government might send troops today, I couldn’t imagine explaining to a grieving family that their son was killed by an American M-16 sent there by a prior administration.

I’m sure nobody tells them that anyway.

"U.S. arms are transferred to foreign militaries only under strict controls that prohibit transfers to third parties without State Department approval"

Since the transfers are only under "strict controls", whatever that means, then pro-Assad forces cannot possibly have any US provided weapons and all is well.

Thanks MinorityRepublican. That’ll assist them when they stage those massacres of Christians and blame them on the rebels, while Syria’s air force and artillery pieces pound Syrian cities to rubble regardless of who lives there.

Nothing wrong with thumping a Bible or carrying a gun. My husband carried a gun and we are California residents...well he has passed but he did carry...all over the state.

Why SHOULD you care for my opinion? I don't care for yours. That's why Free Republic is so great...we say what we want, NOT caring what the others think.

You know they consider all us Conservatives to be mentally ill.
I wouldn't lump ALL non-conservatives together...it's a puerile way to think. Get over yourself.

Obviously YOU misread My comment completely! Let’s look at it again:

I said THEY, and ended with all us Conservatives. Where did I disparage people who hold the Bible dear or own guns OR your opinion? Just a little quick on the trigger today methinks. So I will and with a quote from one of my favorite people “Good Night and God Bless”.

God how I miss people like Red Skelton! I can’t help but wish we had more Comedians like him now and I can’t help but wish I lived60 or 70 years ago when Americans were not ashamed to praise God and flaunt their love of America.

You are so right.
Red always said "God bless," didn't he?

Yes, it was his trademark show Finish “God Bless and Goodnight”. I was fortunate to see him in concert as well as chat with him decades ago in a small store he had in Tustin,CA.

I've been to Tustin. Nice town. It was a long time ago.
I had a friend in Anaheim.
