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:
... and if they continue, then Lurch finally gets to be a real war hero!
I think you left off Harry Reid.
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.
They have to start WWIII to cover the Egyptian Morsi Trials!
Bammy done got caught red handed with his hands in the terrorist cookie jar!
Last time Corsi and Sheriff Joe came out with Proof of his ID THEFT, he bombed Libya! The whole world is gonna burn now.
The three Pub’s are all ‘flakes’.
I’m sure some DUmmies (the hippie peacenik crowd, anyway), won’t be happy to see that their darling, Barbara Boxer, voted yes.
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??
Arizona deserves to sink into the sand. The heat must brain addle them.
A profile in courage:
Present: Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass
Where you got an idea that Israel want any US military action against Assad?
Since I’m one of her “constituents”, it gave me great pleasure to rip her a$$ wide open over her vote.
I thought Dems hate war..all I heard for the last 8 years was how Bush was a war criminal..yet these same Dems vote to go to war with Syria..but hey as long as Obama is in power these same Dem schmucks will do whatever he wants
Well, there is a reason for this. Syria is well, well, its WEST of Iraq.
Why aren’t Lindsay Graham and Harry Reid on the ‘Yes’ list?
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?
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.
Why aren’t Mike Lee and Ted Cruz on the ‘No’ list?
I was wondering the same thing.
I’m ashamed of Corker and called his local Chattanooga office(His DC
office has the phone off the hook to avoid taking calls) to tell him so.
are they on the committee??
Because they’re not on the committee...
Been saying it ever since this whole thing started: Obama always gets what he wants from Congress.
Ed Markey voted PRESENT??? What a FREAKING COWARD!!!
What R you talking about? I'm thinking you R a little confused. The Democrats' motives R always in the interest of world peace. It's not them who R wrong...
Because Obama has the GOODS on all of them.
Arizona has the hippies who had their vehicles break down or plain ran out of cash on their way to San Francisco. The “crystal” magic of the area. Staring at the sun... etc.
They’re Democrats. The word democratic is an adjective.
That right there should go viral. Excellent.
She is the "Abortion Queen" of New England.
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.
How come we haven’t heard anything from Reid. The guy arrogantly forces his opinion in everything, yet I have not heard one peep from Reid. Why is that?
Your State isn't exactly a prize bastion of Conservatism, FRiend.
What will happen when Russians start shooting down Americans, who then get beheaded by our Rebel Alqada/Syrian allies?
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.
“Arizona deserves to sink into the sand. The heat must brain addle them.”
We Hoosiers eighty-sixed our New World Order statesman Looger.
Arizona has two of them. They’re too close to CA. So there it is.
Beats Arizona now, doesn’t it?
At least we returned to some sanity.
You all re-elected McCain and voted for the Flake. Two of the difference makers.
Just saying. Personally this is not your fault.
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.
Nah..he’s running for president in 2016...
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?
True,. And that old fool Lugar has re-emerged to put his NWO 2 cents in. All pro everyone but America BS.
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?
Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass
Typical Massachusetts RAT...
