No decision by an elected official is more serious than whether to send our armed forces into conflict. President Obama was right to seek Congressís authorization to use military force against Syria. But having carefully considered the presidentís substantive arguments, I am compelled to vote against the requested authorization.

We must pull together to save Obama for the children and for Gabby.
If he keeps on getting tricked and humiliated then Hillary wont be able to do anything on the world stage once she is Maddam POTUS.

Obama is such a freaking drama queen. If he was really so concerned about Syria’s chemical weapons use, he would have secretly gathered all of his top military and intelligence officers, identified the weapons facilities and locations and delivery and storage areas. Them secretly and quietly order a military strike to eliminate them. This all could have been done without drama, without press conferences, without Congressional approval. But no....he has to make such a big deal over it. Go on national television. Try to convince a war weary public, reluctant allies, and worst of all tip off the Syrians.

I'm following Putin's lead. He has outshone 0bama. He's implemented 'anti-gay propaganda' in his country because he's seen what it's done to America, and what having a gay president has done to our military. Putin has also vowed to defend Christianity, worldwide. He provided a logical solution to the BOGUS 'war because of a chem strike' situation. He's a bigger man than 0bama. Russia's looking mighty attractive these days, while the American government is starting to look more like the KGB thugs of the old Soviet Union. Things that make you say 'WTF'?

"Putin's recent actions seem to confirm his promise. Last week, Putin vetoed a U.N. motion calling for Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad to step down. Syrian Christians received this as good news. Assad is of the Alawite sect of Islam. Alawites and Christians are both religious minorities in Syria. Syrian Christians feel that sharing this minority status means Assad will provide them with protection. A Syrian Christian woman even told The Global Post, "Thank God for Russia. Without Russia we are doomed."

Obama has made a "substantive argument"?

It would really be nice for about 20 Freepers to sign up for an account at the Post and “up vote” some pro-Cruz comments. Most of them are just evil.
