“Saudi Arabia should be paying for this,” he said.

That would HAVE to be the Mother of ALL unConstitutional acts by this treasonous bast*rd.

To reduce our troops to no more than mercenaries of another country?

I don't hardly think so...

It is about the only way Lindsey can feel like the smartest man in the room.

If Saudi Arabia pays, it will be from trickle down of petroleum profits we have already paid. We have been and are funding our own demise.

He will be primaried, that’s for sure. Several are lining up to challenge him. My one concern is that the opposition will be too fractured. He will definitely have the financial advantage. Already Huckabee has cut all these radio spots for him—and they are truly lame.

Graham said a strike against Syria would only be successful if it accomplishes three things: changes the balance of power in Syria provokes the Russians, helps the opposition al Qaeda and gets other countries in the region involved invites World War III.

Fixed it.

This is treasonous in my mind to be doing the bidding of kings and pursuing their foreign policy. We do NOT want to change the balance of power in Syria. The so-called rebels are really jihadists in one form or another -- some are sunni jihadists and some are Shi'ite jihadists, but nonetheless jihadists.

It is a sure prescription to lead to the ethnic cleansing of Syrian Christians.

"Obama is scrambling to round up support in Congress for his Syria plan.

Graham said a strike against Syria would only be successful if it accomplishes three things: changes the balance of power in Syria, helps the opposition and gets other countries in the region involved.

“Saudi Arabia should be paying for this,” he said.

And seeing as how there is zero American interest or national security at stake in this current civil war in Syria, it's all about regime change and building strength and power for al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood in the region and, in fact, is directly against the interests of America and our allies. This is treason!!

The congress must uphold its oath to abide by the constitution. Deny his request American involvement. And if Obama goes ahead and attacks Syria without congressional approval as he has threatened to do, the congress must move IMMEDIATELY to IMPEACH and REMOVE the president!!

Quislings like Graham must be voted OUT or charged with aiding and abetting treason and expelled!!

Well said, Jim.

This entire fiasco in Syria is the Syrians mess. We don’t belong there nor should we take military action over CBW use, we are not the world police.

The support for Obummer’s use of military force from Graham, McCain or any other Repub or Dem is treasonous and like you say, if Obummer acts without approval of Congress he should be impeached.

Like Sarah Palin said, “Let Allah sort it out.”

We definitely should not be assisting al Qaeda, the MB or any other radical muslims that have been killing Americans for years.

So true, my FRiend.

It’s treasonous to assist these rebel jihadists and these jihadists are going after Syrian Christians, in good conscience we cannot abet that.

Word of the Day: Quisling (Noun)

Pronunciation: [’kwiz-ling]

Definition: A traitor who turns against his or her own country to serve an invader.

Usage: This is a relatively new word so far without lexical offspring. The adjective would be “quislingly” which sounds odd. Better use the compound “quisling-like.” It sounds queer as a verb, too, though its meaning lends itself readily to verbalization in the sense of “betray to an invader.”

Suggested Usage: For those of us who remember World War II, today’s word is a powerful condemnation in its literal sense, “The French partisans were always at risk of betrayal by quislings in their area.”

Etymology: A commonization of the last name of Vidkun Quisling (1887-1945), head of Norway’s government during the Nazi occupation of World War II. Of all the heads of European states who chose to subserve the Nazi regime in World War II, Quisling was the misfortunate one commemorated for his weakness throughout the European languages.

If Congress votes down this ridiculous resolution, and 0bama orders the strike anyway, the military MUST uphold their oath to the Constitution. They must REFUSE to follow an unlawful order!

Obama bows to the Saudia King, the king of mecca.

The same as Osama was al Qaeda and also sunni but worked with Iran we are now certain, Saudi is sunni but also intrigues with the Shi’ites.

I applaud your sentiment. I wish he would get booted in the primaries, but let’s keep it real. It is highly unlikely. That my FRiend, is one of the main reasons I am not optimistic about our future.

Too many people invest too much in these career prostitutes to let them fail in a party primary or a general election. They serve themselves - not the people.

While he is just one Senator among 100, he, McConnell, and McCain are far more damaging to the GOP than the 50+ rats are. They are corrosive to common sense and kill the GOP with their constant appeasement interviews. How can they be so wrong, so often?

Don't care. Ska-rew the Senate.

Just use it to focus on all the stuff he's been hiding with his fake news stories and crises. Run it right up to the election, rub the RATs noses in scandal after scandal after scandal.

Why has no one been able to expose this man for his faggotry? Seriously. It’s not even merely that he’s a homosexual - he’s far more depraved than the garden variety homosexual. He’s now compromising our nation’s security, probably motivated by some bizarre fetish.
