PUTIN PUSHES BACK AS OBAMA EDGES TOWARD SYRIA STRIKE - As America edges closer to a retaliatory strike against Syrian government forces in the wake of a deadly chemical attack, Russia is digging in against international intervention. Russian President Vladimir Putin has been increasingly dismissive of President Obama’s policy demands -- offering asylum to NSA leaker Edward Snowden and brushing off Obama’s insistence that gay athletes be included in the 2014 Winter Olympics set for Sochi, Russia. Putin’s government agrees that chemical weapons were used in Syria, but not with the U.S. assessment that they were deployed by government forces rather than Islamist rebels. News that the Obama administration scrapped plans to meet with Russian diplomats on Syria options reaffirms the new chill in the already icy U.S.-Russia relationship.
Have you considered moving to Russia? You show a lot more support for Putin and Russia than you do for Obama and the U.S.A.

Obama is helping Al Qaeda take over a country.
When Al Qaeda takes over that country, they will have chemical weapons.
What idiot here wants Obama to help Al Qaeda acquire chemical weapons?

Russia will give Syria its most advanced anti-ship missiles.
These missile systems are very, very good.
It is certain US ships will be hit by some of these missiles. It is certain US sailors will be killed. It is likely US ships will be sunk. It is certain the most significant target will be the aircraft carrier, and these missiles are capable of sinking it.
Obama could get thousands of US sailors killed solely for the purpose of helping Al Qaeda take over a country and acquire chemical weapons.

Who's in favor of that?

Did you just post "communism is dead"?
You aren't being serious.
Otherwise, you'd have to explain why communism isn't dead in China, Russia and North Korea.
So I know you're just being silly.
Yes. It's barely hanging on in China, Russia is not Communist, North Korea is a dictatorship more than it is a Communist country.

<quoted text>Good point, we went in to Iraq to get WMD's, and if in fact those WMD's were shipped to Syria why wouldn't we go there after them?
because a republican hawk isn't in the WH.

When Rep. Louie Gohmert floats conspiracy theories, Americans across the political spectrum tend to roll their eyes and ignore him. But one of his more feverish conspiracy theories about President Barack Obama’s ostensible ties to the Muslim Brotherhood could be fueling dangerous anti-American sentiments in Egypt and potentially complicating U.S. foreign policy in the region, experts say.
For months, the five-term Republican congressman from Texas has been claiming that the Obama administration has been infiltrated by members of the Muslim Brotherhood who are steering U.S. foreign policy and emboldening terrorists.
“This administration has so many Muslim Brotherhood members that have influence that they just are making wrong decisions for America,” Gohmert told the conspiracy-friendly World Net Daily radio back in April, in just one example of such claims.
Gohmert’s remarks echo conspiracy theories put forth by conservative writer and advocate Frank Gaffney, who published a book last year titled The Muslim Brotherhood in the Obama Administration. Gohmert appeared on Gaffney’s radio show earlier this year touting the Brotherhood’s influence on Obama.
At home, where the political class takes Gohmert with a grain of salt, the claim has been confined to the fever swamps. Gaffney’s theories were so fringe as to get him banned from the high-profile conservative conference CPAC last year.
But in Egypt, where the democratically elected Muslim Brotherhood government was recently ousted by the country’s military after the people turned against it, it’s a different story. Anti-American conspiracy theories are rampant there, for a variety of reasons related and unrelated to U.S. foreign policy, and hearing it from a United States congressman lends credibility to the theory that the U.S. is teaming up with the Muslim Brotherhood — and even Al-Qaeda — to destroy Egypt.
“I guarantee you nobody in Egypt really knows who Louie Gohmert is or what he’s about. So they could very well point to this and say ‘Look! He’s a member of Congress. This must be serious. There must be something to it,’” said Steven A. Cook, senior fellow for Middle Eastern Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations.“It doesn’t help in a political environment where everyone is already angry at us to be fueling conspiracy theories against us. In that way it enables an overall level of hostility toward the U.S.”
Shadi Hamid, a Middle East expert at the Brookings Institution, conceded that he hadn’t even heard of Gohmert until TPM reached out to him.“As for the role it plays,” Hamid said,“look, this does provide real ammunition to the conspiracy theorists when you have American sources seemingly verifying what they are saying.”
“It lends these bizarre theories a new code of legitimacy and amplifies them,” he said.“When Egyptians see this, they don’t realize that just because a U.S. congressman is saying this that it can be wrong or that he can be lying publicly.”

though if Mitt was in the WH it would have been much easier.
republicans could care less one way or the other about attacking Syria. all they care about is attacking Obama.

I'm, right now, more worried about the 20,000 stinger type surface to air missiles missing from Libya. They have had plenty of time to make it to South America, trucked up through Mexico, and carried by mules across the border. By now a couple of hundred or more could be spread out all over America waiting on the order to launch all at one time. Such are my worries!!!

three Westerners, including an American woman and a British citizen, who it claims were fighting with the rebels and were found with weapons were killed in Syria. And the O'bama administration says it knows. So whose side is O'bama on? the terrorists. O'bama is getting ready to lite up the entire area. He needs to be impeached. 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.

Missiles from Libya to South American trucked up to Mexico and then carried across the border by mules and spread out across America.
