I think when push comes to shove, the House will vote for war (as will the Senate).

Let’s hope I’m wrong.

Well, the "push and shove" is coming right from no less than Mother Russia....Putin has just said that Russia will militarily back Syria.

Now what, Lord Zero...?

You are likely wrong. The House is shaping up as a solid NO, and with the introduction of nuclear weapons into Syria by Russia... well, even the Globalist NWO-types don't want to see their children on fire.

If I were a betting man, I would say they will NOT vote to give Obammy authority to start another international adventure.

Quite possibly obama hopes you are wrong too.

What could go wrong if he bombs Syria? So much. What could go right? Hmm..

Human shields all over the place in a region that practically invented lying. If by some miracle he fails to hit a school or a hospital, they'll just have to improvise and...well, craft a video that'll set the world on fire, like that guy Notcoola Notcoola.

I think you are probably wrong, and here is why:

As you and I both know, the house is not a single entity. Each one is an individual representitive with his/her own constituency to which they have to answer. As one congressman put it, and I paraphrase, when 97% of your constituency says no, it’s hard to say yes.

The whole nation of the represented are so against this, and in sugh huge numbers, that I believe that the only way any single representative could change his vote to support Obama is if something so gawdawful happened that the constituency wanted it. That depends on some still unknown future event.

I think the only other way Obama could get enough support from the house is if he could somehow convince him there is another card on the table that can’t be shared with the public - some very real nuke on American soil type of thing. What this means to me is that if the House supports him without any shift in the public perspective, something VERY, VERY bad is afoot.

I guess that you haven’t been reading the Drudge report about the video that has surfaced and the Russian report. I also suppose that you don’t know that the Obama administration blocked a Russian request that the UN Security Council condemn an attack on a Syrian City that killed 100 people and injured 250 that is alleged to have been perpetrated by the rebels. This news, combined with the Russian report on the earlier Sarin gas use by the rebels is turning opinion in WA DC.
