Somebody please explain to me why we would send troops into a country led by a dictator who is no friend of the U.S. and is fighting against a group of Islamic terrorists who killed 3,000 innocent Americans on 9/11/2001?

One word... Obama!

(Or as I prefer to call him, 0dumb0sh_t!)

Because:

a. Our president is a Muslim sympathizer (if not a practicing Muslim) who is indebted to -- and a tool of -- the Muslim Brotherhood.

b. A certain prominent GOP Senator who has never seen a conflict that he thinks we shouldn't be involved in and is, for reasons known only to himself, gung-ho about Arab insurrectionists.

Thus, a "bi-partisan coalition" is formed...

We're going in regardless of the truth. This war was preplanned 12 years ago. Next stop Iran . . .

Yes we are. Samantha Power is a neocon in disguise, and Senators McCain and Lindsay Gayham were laying the groundwork. It's pretty clear now that what's going on. Liberals in both parties want to remake the Middle East.

Please post a source for this important information.

I'm not speaking for anybody else, but I've got a gut feeling that a lot of this stuff was being planned by neocons over a decade ago, and it's being carried out now.

Hell, in 2002, John Bolton labeled Libya and Syria, along with Cuba, as a part of the "Axis of Evil" after Jorge Bush started off with Iran, Iraq, and North Korea.

We went to war with two out of the six that Bush and Bolton labeled as evil, we are prepping for war with a third, and at times we tried to goad NK and Iran into action.

It was clear to those paying attention in 2002 that we were going to war with Iraq, and that the administration and its backers in Congress were just trying to figure out how to frame it and sell it. The same thing is happening with Syria - Obama and his Republican and Democrat buddies have been laying the groundwork to go to war with Syria for over a year now.

The only one left out is Cuba, and it does not rise to the level of "evil" that the others do, which makes you wonder if it was just tossed in as a red herring.

The quality of the men and women in American service is likely to decline.

The quantity damn sure will, we are burning out some of our best and brightest on long multiple tours. We start losing our experienced service members, the quality will definitely go down.

My guess is that Obama is going to pull a Bush and think he can shock and awe this thing and get it over with quickly. And maybe he can get away with just providing air and naval power, and leave the groundfighting to the Al Qaeda allied rebels, but I have a really bad feeling that we will have boots on the ground.

“For the first time in my life my heart desires to participate in an anti-war rally. But where are all the peaceniks that usually organize these things? Obama must have rounded them all up and shipped them off to colorado to get high for the duration of that US-Syrian war.”

It’s really simple. Democrats are only anti-war when a Republican is in charge and when a Democrat thinks of going to war, all the Republicans are suddenly hippie peaceniks.

I look to what Israel does for the truth. If they think Syria is a true threat, then it is a true threat.

Russia is just going to stand idly by as we fire missiles into Syria to cause a situation, that is truly none of our business, to worsen. After that sophomoric exercise by Generalissimo Barry Obama all hell will break loose as Russia, and possibly China retaliate.

Barry has been advised by his brain trust that we may lose a city or two and that Russia will, in a demonstration of mercy, only nuke Detroit.

Macho Barry has visions of being in command of a great army making a valiant stand against a powerful enemy made more powerful by his inane non-existent foreign policy. He has been watching too many movies ground out by Hollywood that indicate a strong American president is victorious.

Well, Barry, we’ve got news for you. You are no Georgia Patton and you’re sure as hell no Ronald Reagan, in fact you’re light years away from these two.

America has never had any business embroiled in foreign wars. Our sphere of concern is this hemisphere.

How can America bloviate, saber-rattle and enter into a catastrophic war which will involve Russia to a great extent as Putin hates Barry anyway when we put up with a Castro 90 miles away and leave our southern border open for transient business?

Will the morons who voted for this menace feel comfortable now that the lunatic is moving us toward nuclear war with an enemy who has built up his military while we, like little schoolboys, have emasculated ours?

Is it going to take this disastrous excursion on the part of a psychopathic Marxist to demonstrate his unfitness to manage anything but a pet store?

After our demise, who will defend Israel and Taiwan? More importantly, who will step in, make the arrest, and defend what’s left of America?

Remember, Progressive nit-wits, you asked for change which you’ll get, but best forget about the hope.

Obama and his worshipers never had God's approval to lose it. The inhabitants of the United States of America for saying, by a majority of votes cast, may have lost God's approval. Once God's approval is lost, God's judgment follows.

Since neither Obama nor his worshipers care about either God's approval nor God's judgment. it does not matter, does it?

Is it any F’n wonder why so many in the world hate Americans?

In my lifetime, seriously, I cannot remember a time when America was NOT at war. Sure, it may not be a declared war by constitutional standards, but America has been in major military conflicts throughout my life.

Who the the world set America up as the world's cop. Besides, this is a civil war. Muzzies killin muzzies...sounds like, well, less muzzies. So why not let’em duke it out.

After Iraq and Afghanistan, I have little stomach for yet another half-baked war. After 9/11, I was completely onboard with waging war, although it quickly became apparent that we were more in the business of nation building than nation destruction.

From a strategic point of view, after taking Iraq and Afghanistan, we had Iran sandwiched between the two, just waiting to be destroyed. (To follow this line of thinking, forget all assets and dollars that we dedicated to rebuilding and winning the hearts and minds of Muslim scum.) Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan would serve as the base to destroy Islam. Syria would be minor battle if they did not stop supporting terrorists and destroy their weapons of mass destruction.

Jordan would be shaking in their boots and do anything we would want. (Such as providing the so-called Palestinians a home of their own on the East Bank of the Jordan River.) Turkey would recognize our strength and would be forced in a direction of an even more secular government.

The big problem America would have is picking a fight with Saudi so we could destroy Mecca and suck their oil dry along with Iraq and Iran's.

Bush was more intent on nation building, and it had nothing to do with the American nation. I would have much preferred an approach that crippled Islam at its core, secured a Jewish state free of terrorists, and to use middle east oil to fund the war. The end game would be the absolute destruction of OPEC, an illegal cartel. Take oil out of the equation and Muslims will be living in the 8th century where they belong.

As a nation we never clearly identified our true enemies - ALL MUSLIMS and all Islamic nations.

Me too. I supported our actions against Afghanistan and Iraq. Not so sure if our going after Saddam Hussein was the right thing to do now. We WERE justified to do so but since Saddam's Iraq was the enemy of Iran we should have left things alone there. That's what I think now.

Libya was not even close to justification. Neither is Syria.
