Kerry can’t answer Rand Paul’s questions. John McCain snickers at Paul while he questions Kerry. John McCain is a senile old man.

So John Kerry, who served in Vietnam IIRC, would not want to rule out the ability to, oh, send in some advisors for example?

Has Kerry been asked what happens if/when we lose a ship or ships?

Are they prepared for such a possible event?

I fear for my country. It is lead by buffoons.

And the terrorist that did all that were collecting tax paid food stamps and other tax paid prizes and gifts...To the tune of hundreds of thousands of tax dollars.

And who rolled out the red carpet and welcomed them into the U.S.?

All brought to you by the U.S. Government.

Carry keeps saying all the American people want Barry to attack Syria

He also said that if Congress says NO Barry is still going to attack because thats what the Constitution allows him to do...

Sen Paul said “Ive been all over Kentucky for the past month Ive been to 40 cities. Not one pertson has told me they want us to attack Syria”

we absolutely should not limit ourselves as to what options are available.

That is reasonable. Unfortunately, too many Presidents look at bombing of a foreign country as a drive-by shooting. There must be a high threshold for a war; but once that threshold is exceeded, the war must be powerful, decisive, and short.

The goal of war is simply to force the other state to accept the will of the victor. It's not to "teach a lesson." But if Obama bombs Syria now, acceptance of what will can we expect? That Assad shouldn't poison "his people?" (Lots of fighters are not Syrians anyway.) But, quite likely, Assad was not even guilty of this particular use of chemical weapons. The whole military action has no purpose - except that is a typical drive-by, to get the enemy scared and for themselves to feel all-powerful.

Think the U.S. can fight a two front war in the Middle East and Asia ? I’m sure the Chinese don’t.

I would be shocked if China didn’t move on the contested areas in the Pacific.

We are rapidly running out of countries for Obama to invade. Just how many countries in the middle east do we have troops in now??

“These idiots are about to start WW3.”

And they will lose it, too. Badly.

And here I was thinking we would all be speaking Mexican before we would be speaking Chinese.

That ugly democrat congresswoman from Florida with the frizzy hair said it was stated as a fact that there would be no boots on the ground. The way these people look into the camera and lie is pure evil.

Secretary of State John F. Kerry refused Tuesday to rule out putting U.S. troops on the ground in Syria...

Kerry has no say in the matter. This is between Congress, that Usurper in the White House, and the Secretary of Defense.

People in congress simply cannot think on their feet. Dempsey and Kerry and Hagel need to be asked “Are you saying our soldiers won’t be in Syria under the American flag? Are you also saying they won’t be in Syria under the UN flag?”
