<quoted text>More than six months after the start of the Syrian uprising, Iraq is offering key moral and financial support to the country’s embattled president, undermining a central U.S. policy objective and raising fresh concerns that Iraq is drifting further into the orbit of an American arch rival — Iran.
Iraq’s stance has dealt an embarrassing setback to the Obama administration, which has sought to enlist Muslim allies in its campaign to isolate Syrian autocrat Bashar al-Assad. While other Arab states have downgraded ties with Assad, Iraq has moved in the opposite direction, hosting official visits by Syrians, signing pacts to expand business ties and offering political support.
After Iraq sent conflicting signals about its support for Assad last month, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki spoke firmly against regime change in Syria in an interview broadcast on Iraqi television Sept. 30.“We believe that Syria will be able to overcome its crisis through reforms,” Maliki said, rejecting U.S. calls for the Syrian leader to step down.
P.S. The Moslem allies O'bama enlisted are Al Qaeda.
Iraq doesn't want Al Qaeda control of Syria.

Missile strikes are war. If someone launched missiles against the US, we would retaliate in force. But only after Obama left office.

If you can't recognize the difference between Bush's unilateral invasion and military action as part of a coalition of nations, there is no hope for you as you are the one who is truly brain dead.
However, we have certainly used our Security Council vito power to stop actions against Israel. There is o reason we should not show Russia the same courtesy. Moscow is right, we shouldn't act before evidence is in hand. I hope Obama doesn't listen to the war mongers.
Pull your head out of whatever orifice it's stuck in. President Bush never unilaterally invaded any country. By the way, when do we need "coalition of nations" to tell us if... we can protect our country? Gee Whiz, it's too bad you have a vote?

Department of Justice Sues Texas Over Voter ID Law
Aug. 22, 2013
By JORDAN FABIAN

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder testifies before the Senate Appropriations Committee June 6, 2013 in Washington, D.C.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder testifies before the Senate Appropriations Committee June 6, 2013 in Washington, D.C.

The Obama administration will sue Texas to block its voter ID law, the Justice Department said on Thursday.

The lawsuit will challenge the law under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color or language. Texas moved swiftly to implement its voter ID law after the Supreme Court in June struck down a requirement that states with a history of racial discrimination seek permission from the federal government to change their voting laws.

Amendment 11 - Judicial Limits

The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State.

So you are saying that O'bama is so stupid he is pressured by some lobbies? O'bama said there will be no lobbies in Washington--what he is pressured? of course he is afraid of his own shadow and of course O'bama is skeered of Rush Limbaugh. That's is your president, he told the world he is skeered. WTH is he doing in office?!?!? IMPEACH NOW!

You want overwhelming evidence?
The fact of Syrian use of chemical weapons should call the conventional wisdom about Iraq into question. The two countries were linked by their ruling Baathist parties and, as neighbors, engaged in trade, both legal and illegal, before the war. In 2006, Georges Sada, a former general of Saddam’s air force, detailed in his book,“Saddam’s Secrets,” how Saddam had secretly moved much of his WMD material to Syria before the U.S.-led invasion under the cover of providing relief to Syrian earthquake victims. Sada’s claim was supported by other sources as well. In 2004, a Syrian defector, Nizar Nayouf claimed that Iraqi WMDs had been hidden at three sites in Syria. Nayouf’s story appeared in the Dutch paper Der Telegraaf and is summarized on WorldThreats.com . Satellite reconnaissance photos from 2010 published in Israel’s Haaretz show Syrian military facilities in the same areas that Nayouf fingered. The same sites were identified in the 2004 book “End Game” by General Thomas McInerney and Paul Vallely as well as another former Iraqi general, Ali Ibrahim al-Tikriti.

This evidence should at least be taken into serious consideration.
So try not to be so stubborn. Or gullible. Whichever.
Right wing bullsht liar__who the fk do you think your kidding?


Syria had far superior weapons facilities and capabilities than Iraq did, they didn't need Iraq's leftover poorly stored junk.

<quoted text> there was no doubt Saddam had possessed and used chemical weapons (a fact to which the victims of Iraqi chemical attacks in both Kurdistan and Iran would doubtless testify were they not dead from chemical-weapons exposure), they had vanished from Iraq.
Wrong again! Saddam did have chemical weapons. The person he got them from is your idol, Ronald Reagan! America saw no problem with it back when he was our go to guy of the region. Only after Saddam bitched Bush41 did America have a problem with the factual evidence that, Saddam was using chemical weapons on his own people! The enemy of my enemy is my friend. That's the republican way &, history proves it. Same circumstances, same result for Muammar Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden. Reagan have Saddam his wmds during the Iraq-Iran war. Why do you think Saddam had influence over Iran? Iran knew they had to deal with aid from the US if tensions got too high. Why do you think Iran is now our primary threat? Because the asshole Bush took away the lion tamer! America wasn't even worried about Iran before Bush's mistake that still haunts America till this day. History 101! Not your story!

...and what happens if Syria retaliates in self-defense, or if Russia comes to the aid of their ally?

How about going to Congress for a declaration of war before starting the war?
