After bombing and invading Syria will:

1) Obama receive another Nobel Peace Prize?

2) The Dixie Chicks claim they are not proud that Obama is an American?

3) Code Pink get ANY air time?

4) Michael Moore produce Fahrenheit 9/11 2.0?

5) John Kerry claim he was against the war before he supported the War?

6) Sean Penn go to Syria and try to protect Shiites from getting slaughtered?

7) the media claim with 1 day of the invasion, that the US military is bogged down with fierce resistant even though they have taken Damascus.

8) Jay Carney become the new Baghdad/Beltway Bob?

9) there be massive anti-war protests with a media fawning over every incoherent speech?

10) be able to wave Obama is Hitler posters?

11) able to air Obama’s statement, “I am not opposed to all wars. I’m opposed to dumb wars,”(2003 comment)

12) Answer—Act Now to Stop War and End Racism—protest outside Chuck Hagel’s home?

What are these jackwagons gonna due when one of our politically correct Air Force’s women pilots bails out over Syria? That’ll make being raped in Tahrir Square look like a walk in the park.

It would be cruel and unusual punishment for us to send that @hole there, ‘cause he’d be too big a target and take too many rounds to take him out.

The correct answer is ALL OF THE ABOVE!

Plus, I'm sure that Barbara Streisand, Jeanine Garafalo and Rosanne Barr will appear on The View and show proof that Donald Rumsfeld has used his voodoo mind magic on Barry, and that's the only possible explanation.

What struck me at Barry’s press conference today was how he repeatedly corrected himself after saying that he was certain or the evidence was there for Assad having used chemical weapons. Each time he quickly clarified to say that Assad’s military, or his generals, or some such.

This makes me think there is something to the reports that we got rogue actors to launch them from within, or apparently from within, the Syrian military—without Assad necessarily having approved them at all. This of course would be a false flag operation to give Obama an excuse to indeed serve as Al-Qaeda’s air force.

I swear something like that is up for him to have gone back and so carefully corrected himself repeatedly.

It is unfair of us to have any cruise missiles. Any new procurement will be for any or all Muslim countries.

But it gets Benghazi, IRS scandal, and DOJ scandal out of the news, let alone the roll-out of 0bamacare on Oct. 1, and other assorted failures of the regime.

The trials of the MB in Egypt will start soon, and some of what's revealed could be very damning to 0bama but not if overshadowed by WWIII.

So Obamas first wave will cost us up front 290 $million dollars.

But, but, but, what about the sequester?? I heard there was no money to fund the military. Employees had to be furloughed for days. Now we can blow this much for shooting a few missiles at aspirin factories like BJ did during his scandals.

Let me be clear-a US attack on Syria most definitely will involve the participation of Iran - isn’t that the point? Really, what else could it be?

“He’ll have to move the military budget up a notch by the end of the year to replenish them.”

Why????
Clinton didn’t, after he burned up the inventory attacking Serbia.

The lack of cruise missiles was a major reason why the start of the War was delayed so much after 9/11, allowing the left to ramp up the Anti-Bush campaign (We now know it had NOTHING to do with anti-war).

This Syria bs is put out there to distract us from the Amnesty bill that is coming up. It’s to get us thinking about this BS while they pass the amnesty bill behind our backs So we don’t lobby our congressmen to not pass amnesty

call Congress . tell them no immigration related bill from the House. Focus people

Focus on stopping the amnesty bill and call out crap like this.

99% of the media news stories are to distract us from what the government is doing or to advance the socialist/democrat agenda. it’s not news

Wow and it is only going to cost tens of millions of dollars and have it paid for by the Saudis. We are getting a great deal.

Jeez.

Just say no to bombing Syria.

Anyone who supports should be thrown out of this country.

“Bathhouse Barry baits bear, bungles bigtime.”

The psych profile the Russians have on Obama must make for very interesting reading...

Putin keeps hurling insult after insult at the clinical narcissist, and none of Obama’s Community organizer training prepared him for someone who isn’t afraid of being bullied, and called a racist by the US Media.

Benghazi was after our military attacks achieved the objective of getting rid of Ghaddafi. If the objective here is to discourage use of poison gas, then disrupting transport and delivery of military goods makes sense. Question—How big a hole does 1 Tomahawk missile make in a concrete airfield? On the other hand the Soviet and Chinese presence requires serious rethinking.

I talked to my successor who replaced me when I retired after almost 40 years in the military. He and none of his section want to have another military action without a clear mission statement, which is lacking from 0 bummer. Even the one 0 supporter is against this.

Obama's rabid hatred of Christians is driving his evil heart to take down Assad.

Obama will be smiling knowing Al Qaeda will swoop in and exterminate everything Christian.

Obama and all in Congress who support this move are doing the work of Satan.

I pray daily for the safety of all Christians in the Middle East.

“Unfortunately, I am extremely allergic to iodine. I’m am toast if they are needed....”

So am I. No doctor or hospital can use anything on me with iodine in it. Can’t use any shampoo that has anything from the ocean in it. I was given an iodine test by a hospital and I have a permanent scar there when the iodine ate down into my arm. It had to heal from the inside of the arm up. But, I have the pills to protect the thyroid which is what the pills are for in case of attack. Someone else can use them but I can’t.

They are now saying that US forces will stay on site to enforce a No Fly Zone for the remainder of the 60 day authorization period, as well as to use Carrier based aircraft to attack ground targets. That’s the reason the carrier is coming up the Red Sea.

This should be a lesson to never vote for a dual Citizen to be president again. The founders framing Article 2 Section 1 put the natural-born Citizen clause in so a future American president would be born with sole allegiance to the United States. They didn’t want a person born with split-allegiances and that person is sitting in the White House right now fixing to put American forces in jeopardy over a chemical attack that Al-Qaeda rebels have admitted to. Obama’s allegiance is not to the American people. His allegiance is to the Muslim Brotherhood like his Kenyan brother. If Obama’s allegiance is truly to the United States then he should be listening to the American public who overwhelmingly do not want to strike a foreign sovereignty. Again, this is what happens when you have a dual Citizen president.

Hello,

I swell, badly, as in my throat swells shut so I can't breathe. Mr. MOguy and I were talking last night reminded him that if they are needed, I will not make it. So sorry we are in the same boat. Praying that we both never have to face that end. As we watch this madness, I just keep hoping that someone somewhere is as concerned as we are and will stop this before it becomes totally insane....
