There is no "win" in this. Whether we go in or not, much of the Arab world will blame Americans. I hope the president chooses not to. Let the Muslims kill each other.
Makes sense with half of the republican party on one side of the issue and the other half on the other side.

Love the divided GOP... destroying their own party ;-)

OK - I've read enough liberal/socialist/communist crap tonight.

After reading lily's lunacy, I can understand why Jim Jones had fools follow him to Jonestown, Guyana.

Have a nice weekend everyone. I hope Obama doesn't do what the first poster of this thread said.

Just because the moron presi-DENT painted himself as a moron into a corner, we should not back the idiot.

By the way, you are a total moron, lily. Dumb as a box of rocks.

Later, retard lily.

Do you think Putin is any different than Assad. Hardly, Russia is run by his regime which is hardly reflecting the will of the Russian people, he has his own agenda which dates back to cold war days.
The biggest problem for the West is trying to choose the lesser of two evils when in reality, neither would be chosen. One one side you have a regime desperate to hold on to power whatever the cost and the other infiltrated with support from Iran, Al Queda and extreme Islamists. Hardly a group you would want to support.
As we have seen with the Arab spring, it can all go belly up and you are worse off than when you started. As Colin Powell tried to convince the Bush regime about going into Iraq, he kept asking the question think about what will happen after we leave. Well that is all to relevant today with car bombs almost daily. Hardly stable government anywhere in the middle east unless they have a dictator or king, which seems to be the only solution for entrenched tribal cultures.

Well Barack you wanted the job? Seems to me you're the one complaining! Barack's been approved of already. Evidenced by his re-election. You dudes need to shisit back &, let the professional handle business. He's achieved more on foreign policy than his predecessor! Bush did such a lousy job, he abandoned his #1 objective, catching Osama bin Laden, the mind behind 9/11.

The Wacko Caucus: Tea Party Senator Ted Cruz Ties Syria To ObamaCare

In 2012 the Tea Party lost some of its key figures in congress. Allen West and Joe Walsh were rejected by voters. Michele Bachmann hung on by a thread, but is now so tainted by scandal that she announced her retirement shortly after the election. Folks like Sarah Palin and Donald Trump continue to be little more than comic relief.

Consequently, the second string of the Tea Party bench has had to step up their game. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas is one of those vying for the role of Grand Teabagger.

...The generous portion of ignorance that Cruz is serving up extends beyond the obvious delusional conflation of two completely unrelated issues. His assertion that ObamaCare was jammed down the throats of the American people is easily refuted by the fact that it was passed by a majority of the people’s representatives in both the House and the Senate, signed by the popularly elected President, and affirmed by a conservative-leaning Supreme Court.

Then Cruz escalates the craziness by attempting to shore up his argument with examples that rip his twisted logic to shreds. On the matter of guns, the American people support the President’s proposal on background checks by an unprecedented 90%. And what Cruz derisively refers to as amnesty, but which is actually a balanced approach to immigration reform, is also favored by a wide majority of Americans.

This is the pathetically low level of discourse that Republicans are engaging in with regard to the complex situation in Syria. They have instituted their typical strategy of being against anything and everything that might emerge from the White House. One faction of the GOP says that if Obama does not strike Syria, then he is weak. Simultaneously, another faction warns that such an attack would be an unconstitutional abuse of power. One side says he must strike because he drew a “red line” last year over chemical weapons. The other side says attacking for that reason would be an act of vanity. One side says he must wait for allies and the United Nations to sanction any attack. The other side says that doing so would be an abdication of our sovereignty.

While it may seem that there is no way that Obama can win under these circumstance, I have developed a three-point plan that would satisfy all of his critics in the GOP, and on Fox News:

Fire bibles into Syria and turn Assad and the rest of the country into evangelical fans of the 700 Club.
Authorize a pipeline from Damascus to New Orleans so that Syrian oil could be refined in the U.S. and sold to China.
Approve an arms sales treaty with the new Syria in order to introduce more weapons into the region and create jobs in Kentucky.

Problem solved!

In one respect Cruz might actually be onto something. Syria and ObamaCare are indeed connected in that both concern agendas that Republicans wholeheartedly supported until Obama became involved. ObamaCare, complete with an individual mandate, was originally the brainchild of the uber-rightist Heritage Foundation, now headed by former Sen. Jim DeMint. And the neo-con right has long advocated military engagement with Middle East adversaries including Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, and Syria. So if Cruz is looking for dots to connect, I think I found them.

here's one of your neocons and his right wing site.

Mugged by Middle East reality, President Obama and Secretary Kerry seem finally to have awakened to the necessity to act—unilaterally and un-apologetically. That's heartening. Still, do they understand that the American action has to be decisive? After all, as the late Mike Scully put it, liberals sometimes get mugged by reality—but then fail to press charges. Will Obama press charges? And pressing the appropriate charges in this case means removing Assad.

So whatever the president and the secretary of state may now say about the mission in Syria being “limited” and “narrow,” one trusts they know the mission will only be a success if Assad goes. Regime change is not only Assad's just reward. It's also the best hope for a modicum of stability in and near Syria. And it's the only message other WMD-loving dictators will understand.

So Obama doesn't have to talk about regime change right now. He just has to do it.

If you're honest with yourself, you'll admit it like most republican. Obama out campaigned both McCain and, Romney. Yet you were against him from the beginning. Now ask yourself, what Obama made me dislike him, even before his policies were in affect? Don't forget, he clearly out campaigned both his opposition!
