If the rebels win in Syria, Al Qaeda won't be running Syria nor will they have access to the chemical weapons. They are minor players in this fight.

You obviously don't pay attention. I am on record as being against any military action unless authorized by the United Nations. They are the world's peace keepers...not the United States. Even if the Republican controlled Congress approves military action, I do not support intervention without U.N. approval. However, I do expect Obama to go forward with a missile strike with Congressional approval and without putting boots on the ground. I don't agree with it, I don't support it but I do expect that to be the outcome because Obama's feelings are so strongly against the use of chemical weapons.

Russia has a point when they say that a missile strike against Syria without U.N. approval paints the United States as a country that makes gross violations of international law a norm. That is not a path I wish to see Obama take.

Either the international community stands behind their principles or they don't. Bush made a terrible mistake. We should never head down that path again.

You call those cites research? Cockburn? lol. You really need to educate yourself.
Are there legitimate incidents, sure but on both sides, which seem to betray your singling 1 side out.
Who the heck is Cockburn? What I KNOW is the CIA's distrust of Israel started decades before Obama took office. It is not exclusive to the Obama administration as you insinuated.

Noshir Gowadia was accused of pocketing at least $110,000 from China which he allegedly used to pay the mortgage on a multimillion-dollar oceanview home he built on Maui's north shore.
Gowadia has been in federal custody since October 2005 and faced life in prison when he was sentenced in November.

Was he as bad as Snowden or Manning under Obama's watch?
Or Bill Clinton approving the sale of advanced technology to China that could be used to wage nuclear warfare?
Get some perspective at the same time you're educating yourself.
Your are either an idiot or just incapable of common sense. Clinton giving China access to U.S. nuclear power plant technology was within his power. Israel selling U.S. technology to China is not. If you can't see the difference, you are beyond help.

Anderson Cooper and CNN have been caught staging fake news about Syria to justify military intervention. The primary “witness” that the mainstream media is using as a source in Syria has been caught staging fake news segments. Recent video evidence proves that “Syria Danny”, the supposed activist who has been begging for military intervention on CNN, is really just a paid actor and a liar.

O'bama facts: Liar. Paid. Acting.

Not true. Obama presented a "draft" resolution to Congress with the expectation that it would be redrawn by members of congress. That's the way it is done. It is now up to Congress to draw up the final draft...not Obama. It is their job to set the time lines and limitations. The ball is in their court.

Correct, as shown in Egypt & Lybia even the Muslims do not want Islamic or any other radical rule as every country who tries to bring religion into politics fails.
Anyway Obama's new best buds the French might bomb them before he does. It's funny how they don't want to do any heavy lifting when Republicans are in power but fall over themselves to help a President with brains.
Shorter: France supports that which the rest of the world regards as ill advised.

They would DIE if actual war occurred. Watch their backsides as they exit.

Obama sent his proposal for the actions he wants to engage in to the Congress. The purposed action went beyond tomahawks.

The MAIN concept here is OBAMA is purposing MORE than missile strikes.

Even you should have been able to understand this.

Says the idiot, you, who is supporting the Teleprompter President who went off script and tried to be all cowboy by making a stupid threat-red line.

So, now we are to be all behind supporting the idiot from being embarrassed. Throwing some missiles is not going to improve Obama's image in the world community.

Obama will always be viewed as stupid, arrogant and vain.

Do you understand what a "draft" is? Obama set down the basic plan...."Authorization: The President is authorized to use the Armed Forces as he determines to be necessary and appropriate in connection with the use of chemical weapons or other weapons of mass destruction in the conflict in Syria in order to...." If you believe for one minute that Obama expected Congress to leave the "draft" unedited, you are an idiot.

This is where you go wrong with the copying and pasting of talking points. The talking points-you post- use fuzzy logic, rarely quote facts accurately, and confuse unrelated issues. In other words designed for parrots who fail to recognize the most glaring errors contained in them.
