Zero Hedge ^ | September 4, 2013

Posted on 09/04/2013 12:55:56 PM PDT by Zakeet

Starting a widely unpopular war which will inevitably escalate and will likely involve Russia and China, not to mention all the countries that neighbor Syria, and at best, result in a regime dominated by Al-Qaeda? No problem. Here are the Senators who voted to push America into the latest middle eastern war:

Yoting Yes:

Voting No:

Present:

Watching the very same Democrats who blasted Bush, much to the glee of the liberal media, screaming for Syrian blood is just stunning...

I disagree that it will inevitably escalate. I read Obama's reluctance as his realization that Israel wants him to engage with Syria.

He will use congressional approval as cover for the unpopular action. Then, I think that he will fall into the typical liberal military response of lobbing a missile or two as a face saving measure.

No one has considered that Syria’s Air Defense systems were supplied by Russia, and probably manned by Russians. What will happen when we start killing Russians??

I see you voted to let the petulant little tyrant have his way and bomb Syria. An action that doesn’t serve our national interests or security.

But I’m sure there’s some oil money at stake or just the fact that we’re going to be helping the sons of bitches from al qaeda and the muslim brotherhood get a hold of another country in order to surround Israel.

You know, the ones who killed our Ambassador in Libya along with 3 other heroes. The ones who are destroying the antiquities in Egypt and murdering Coptics as well as burning their churches. But we don’t give a crap about that do we?

His fragile ego was at stake and we just couldn’t have him looking like the stupid idiot that he is, could we?

I’m sick of what the beltway insiders are doing, against the will and wishes of the people you are supposed to SERVE. 90% of the American public are AGAINST any intervention in that s___hole and yet, you all are just tripping all over yourselves to throw us into another war...I thought you were against war “senator”?

Oh? I guess it’s only acceptable if a Nobel Peace Prize “winner” starts it?

Arrogance unmatched.

Nothing. Russian pilots fought in Vietnam. Russians was involved in Six Day War and Yom Kippur War. But this is going to be a major problem for US Air Force. Russians posted in Syria are highly trained.

Israel wants the US to provoke Syria into attacking them so that Israel can solve both the Syrian chemical and the Iranian nuclear threat. They know the US is an unreliable ally and they must assure their own survival.

Actually not a bad strategy, IMO, given the weakness of the United States political leadership.

I dipped my toe over there in the cesspool, the majority consensus seems to actually be against this.

They're even calling Kerry a tool and a liar.

Of course, the bamster is held blameless and completely unaccountable.....Limbaugh theorem in action.

Maybe I'm reading into articles like this something that isn't there? Netanyahu has clearly stated that Assad is a client of Iran. Later in the article it states: "Yet officials have said action must be taken, with most expecting Washington to respond to the attack."

From other articles, Israel provided military intelligence claiming the chemical attacks were committed by the Assad regime.

BTW: While Israel pointed the finger at Assad for the gas attack, that doesn’t mean that that is true!

Geller points out that the Jihadist opposition to Assad had already been in possession of Sarin. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3062613/posts

I am a strong supporter of Israel, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they “manufacture” intelligence to their own advantage.

Ron - how is that even possible? If it were not for Obama's initiative, we wouldn't even be discussing military options. He alone is the commander-in-chief (Lord Help Us, Please).

Most Republicans and perhaps even a majority of Democrats are opposed to a meaningless military strike against the sh*tass leader of a sh*tass country of no strategic value to the US. How is this not Obama's doing?

Israel does not need an excuse. Israel wants to avoid war at all costs, because throughout the years of trading land for peace, they are now surrounded by enemies that are pointing somewhere between 150 to 200,000 missiles at them, many of which contain chemical and biological warheads. All of their cities are in range, even from Iran. How can anyone possibly imagine they want to start something at this time?
