Among those Republicans who are crossing the aisle to support President Obama is Cantor, who said in a statement that America has a compelling national security interest in the conflict.
“There are no easy solutions and a one-off military strike is not by itself an adequate strategy, but I am convinced that the risks of inaction outweigh the risks of a limited intervention," Cantor said.
I thought Cantor was the darling of the Tea Baggers? I guess he's a Rhino now.
A warmongering Obama will never win or get the support of Congress you sellout.... Sometimes in the winds of change obama will find his direction.

And the lies and double talk begins in regards to Syria, after stating just 3 days ago that no troops would be deployed.

Secretary of State John F. Kerry refused Tuesday to rule out putting U.S. troops on the ground in Syria, saying the president needs to retain the ability to send in forces in very select circumstances as the Obama administration officially began to make its case for retaliatory military strikes on the Assad regime.

Testifying to the Senate, Mr. Kerry accused critics of “armchair isolationism” and said there are risks to acting, but that the risks of inaction are even worse. But asked whether President Obama would accept an authorization from Congress that specifically banned putting U.S. troops on the ground in Syria, the secretary balked.

“I don’t want to take off the table an option that might or might not be available to the president that might secure our country,” he said, pointing to a hypothetical situation in which the U.S. would want troops to go in to secure a chemical weapons cache from falling into the hands of terrorists.

Moments later, however, realizing his statement could be a problem, Mr. Kerry sought to clarify. He said that Mr. Obama will accept whatever restrictions Congress wants to place to make sure that the U.S. doesn’t get drawn into the actual fight between the regime and the rebels.

Until the act is declared unconstitutional the president has the authority to commit troops at his whim.

This tells you who they are & ho is likely to run the country if they can defeat Assad.
The last time chemical weapons were used in large quantities was Iraq in the late 80's. There were doubts as to who used them & Ronald Reagan did nothing.
Obama says we should punish Syria. Looks like Congress will agree.
Yes, one of the two strongest groups is Jabhat al-Nusra, al Qaeda affiliated. I already knew this. Why I stated that concern should be given to removing Assad and turning the country over to Al Qaeda.

Your article did nothing to back up your earlier claims. Your claims that al Qaeda taking over was not a baseless scare tactic is not supported by the article.

I also note you could not NAME one knee jerk reaction to CW in the past.

So Obama says Syria should be punished, is that the end all for you? Are you going to weigh the pro and cons or continue to be an Obot?

Syria is a worse shthole than Libya, my own preference would be to pull back and let all those crazy mofo's kill each other off. There's nothing there__oil makes up a quarter of the GDP and then agriculture in the absence of drought, olives and such. Beyond that there's squat.

Some lame Leftie confused another website using Pondora Box when linking to FNS in their teaser with the actual headline.
