Secretary of State John Kerry says the use of chemical weapons in Syria is "undeniable" and that the U.S. is considering how to respond:

"What we saw in Syria last week should shock the conscience of the world," said Kerry. "It defies any code of morality. Let me be clear: The indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity. By any standard, it is inexcusable. And despite the excuses and equivocations that some have manufactured, it is undeniable."

Didn't this clown say pretty much the same thing about Iraq?

DemoKKKrats Drag US into Undeclared War on Syria
DAMASCUS, Syria A senior Syrian official said Monday that his country will defend itself against any international attack and will not be an easy target as the U.S. and other countries ramp up rhetoric in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack last week on a rebel-held neighborhood of the Syrian capital.
In an interview with The Associated Press in Damascus, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mikdad said airstrikes or other action against Syria would also trigger "chaos" and threaten worldwide peace and security.
He spoke Monday as support for an international response was mounting if it is confirmed that President Bashar Assad's troops were responsible for the Aug. 21 attack, which activists say killed hundreds.
The Obama administration is now talking behind the scenes as if there is almost no doubt about Assad's use of chemical weapons, CBS News senior White House correspondent Major Garrett reported on "CBS This Morning."
President Obama is moving toward a military strike against Syria. Any final decisions haven't been made, but senior administration officials talk of Syria now as a place where the U.S. and its allies must exact a military price for heavy use of chemical weapons. There is no longer serious debate within the administration if the Assad regime used chemical weapons last week.
A senior Syrian official? Lemme take a wild azz guess here Lyin Galt__would that guy work for Assad?

BTW did you know that Assad never expected to take the reigns from his daddy and trained as a dentist? Did you know that he was a decent basketball player?

There is presently a coalition of 35 plus nations that are interested in some payback for the Assad regimes almost certain use of nerve gas resulting in at least 350 deaths and upwards of 1000 injuries.

France's Hollande is pizzed to the point that France might consider going it alone if the UN and NATO can't muster the courage.

There are really no good choices about how to react against Syria.

Blowing up the government center and ministries might be fun on the cheap.

It gets worse. How about this:

"And as Ban Ki-moon said last week, the U.N. investigation will not determine who used these chemical weapons, only whether such weapons were used, a judgment that is already clear to the world."

WTF??????????

So, who used them isn't important? We're just going to bomb Assad.
Ok. Let's just kill whomever is already our enemy if we're going to kill anyone.

How about we just start bombing Al Qaeda wherever we find them in Syria....

Kerry has always been a lying treasonous fraud.
When he says "...the U.N. investigation will not determine who....", bet the house it was one of his friends. Any enemy of the United States is a freind to Kerry.

This is a hoax. Nothing good will come from this. Americans will die just so Obama can help the Arabs make a show of killing Americans.

This isn't the first time Kerry helped the enemy kill Americans.

"...putting an end to taxpayer-funded subsidies to large oil companies."
What subsidies?
What are the oil companies being subsidized for?
There has to be something written in some law somewhere that authorizes a payment of any subsidy for some reason. It's easy to find the subsidies paid to farmers. No problem finding them. For some reason, nobody on Earth has been able to find any subsidy paid to oil companies.
Do you think there is someone sitting in the Treasury saying something like, "I'm bored today. I think I'll just write a check to the oil companies."
I hear a lot of party line mantra about "subsidies to oil companies", but nobody has been able to give any description of them.

depends on the reason for logging, the wishes of the landowner, and the type of logging and where. Swamp logging of pine is replanted just like corn or wheat. Hardwood logging, like in WV, is naturally seeded from existing trees. You must be really dense to think that loggers don't replant their crop.

"Fox News has rushed to defend oil companies in the wake of a Senate hearing in which oil executives were questioned about whether their companies should continue to receive tax subsidies. This follows Fox's long history of defending oil companies from criticism."
This is your evidence?
And, Mediamatters?
I've just got a couple of questions... well, more than a couple. Let's just start with the obvious.
Why in hell would you consider mediamatters a credible source?
How did Fox News "rush to defend oil companies"?
Your "source" was just a little weak describing that... well, they actually didn't back that statement up at all.
"oil executives were questioned about whether their companies should continue to receive tax subsidies"
WHAT SUBSIDIES?
What subsidies to oil companies are you talking about?
If you can't find any subsidies to oil companies, why do you think they exist? Because some Democrat asked about it?
I've got a suggestion. How about Obama cut those mythical subsidies out of the next budget he proposes.
BWAAAAWWW HAAAAAAAAAWWWWW HAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWW
Its a video of your hero's show. In it he talks about these subsidies.

Oil company execs admit they exist.

Even you can't deny they exist.

And really, Mr Consti-f*cking - tution here thinks the President can just cut things out of the budget & change tax law all by himself.

You really get stupid when you are losing arguments.

So, seeding from existing trees is replanting?

What I am saying is that not all logging operations replant.

I see it all the time in PA on public land. They come in & take 90-95 % of everything & leave. There is no replanting.

Let's review some recent history.

The Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda aren't strong enough to take over Libya.

Karzai put the kabash on Obama's plan to put the Taliban back in control of the government of Afghanistan.

The Musliim Brotherhood just got kicked out of the government of Egypt.

Obama is 0 for three.

Now, Obama is going to help the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda take over Syria.

Who thinks Obama will be 0 for four after he gets Americans killed trying to help Al Qaeda in Syria?

Obama is Putin's bitch. That will always be true as long as Obama is so stupid he steps into every trap Putin sets. This is nothing more than a trap.

You can bet this time they are going to make us pay very dearly for putting an ignorant buffoon like Obama in as president.
We are about to get a very serious dose of egg on our face. And we have nobody to blame for it but ourselves.

To be fair when flying over West VA, or VA I did not see the complete deforestation like I did when flying over Oregon. Like I said I hope you are correct about the replanting I do remain skeptical knowing what good stewards corporate America is with our environment</end sarcasm>. I also doubt bottled/purified water is just a phase we are going through, you are old enough to remember when a person could drink water out of a faucet yes?.
