You are jumping to conclusions. I do not believe Obama will bomb Syria if Congress turns him down. Naturally, I could be wrong. It certainly wouldn't be the first time.<quoted text>
McCain and Graham are isolated from the mainstream of the party.
If Congress turns Obama down, Obama may bomb Syria anyway. If he does not bomb, Assad will defeat Al Qaeda, a good thing.
However, I have had the opportunity to hear experts speak about Syria and am relatively confident that Congress will support the president. We will just have to wait and see.
