Posted on 09/03/2013 6:08:07 PM PDT by tcrlaf
A new use-of-force resolution for Syria sets a 60-day deadline, with one 30-day extension possible, for President Barack Obama to launch military strikes against the regime of Syria President Bashar Assad and it will also bar the involvement of U.S. ground forces in Syria.
Aides to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) were also involved in the discussions over the revised resolution.

What BS. The Assad Regime did not gas their own people.This is ploy to get Amnesty under the Radar and to raise the debt ceiling and fund obama care. IT WILL NOT WORK. Rush blew the lid off this thing today exposing the strong likelihood that the Al Qaeda used the gas they captured last year at a Syrian base.

Why has this NOT COME OUT?? The terrorists did it and it is well understood and we are being fed yet another foreign policy LIE!! Any politicians that votes for this is politically finished . WE DO NOT FIGHT THE GOVERNMENT of Syria!! They did not Gas their people. It was clearly the Al Qaeda!!
They aren't clueless, it's what they want. If they wanted to stop it they could.
The so called war on drugs is by design to keep people employed and agencies flush with cash.
This whole strike is for our dictator. Obama wants to save face. He made a mess of Lybia and Egypt. And now he’s risking WWIII for his own ego.
Congress needs to vote against this lunacy.
Muslims are savages and we can’t attack them for it every time they show us how satanic they are. It’s not like they attacked our mainland again. What we can do is get all of the Christians out of there because they are all being gassed, beheaded, burned up and crucified. I have not heard Obama mention this at all. Why? Because the killing of Christians has nothing to do with his ego. This whole strike is about Obama’s red line and so he can save face.
AND if this strike starts a gigantic middle eastern conflagration, Obama isn’t going to take responsibility for it. He will turn around and blame congress.
The people elected to run this country have gone cuckoo.
For the first time in my 72 years of life, I have lost faith in my country. I shudder to even think of the future for my grandchildren and great grands.
If I had of been told about this 50 years ago I would have thought it to be Science Fiction!

Like Rush said, today...
Why are we talking about the details of it?
Why are we talking about when, where, how, what? That alone proves that this is political, as everything Obama and the Democrats do is political.
I give this a 9 on the honking hoot scale.
This is unconstitutional! Congress can only declare war, and fund or defund war. They cannot micromanage a war they declare. That is the Presidents job.
How will they get around the illegality of attacking a sovereign nation involved in a civil war?
Might want to call what is about to take place ... Operation Flexibility.
Save by the other corrupt AH's riding in the same limo.

“Why has this NOT COME OUT??”
It has, many times, in thew non-U.S. Press. Why do you think Britain voted war down?
Much of the U.S. Media, however, is too afraid of the retribution of the liberal fascists to print anything not pre-approved by MedaMatters/OFA.
Operation distract and deceive....
no doubt for many countries the supplies are there.
Anyone ever hear of ‘mission creep’?
yours is better than mine ... Thumbs Up!
