Nope. Only war I ever supported was Star Wars [and not all six conflicts]. Assad has gone from being the younger son of a ruthless dictator to a ruthless dictator himself. He wanted to be an ophthalmologist--he should have certified himself like Paul--but now sends his wife country songs while gassing civilians...maybe you Grumpy Old Pricks will be more careful which despots you pay off with weapons in the future, but since you're unlikely to ever win another national election maybe it doesn't matter.

In just 2009 alone, the Navy Times reported:

Air Force, Navy and other coalition warplanes dropped a record number of bombs in Afghanistan during April, Air Forces Central figures show. In the past month, warplanes released 438 bombs, the most ever. April also marked the fourth consecutive month that the number of bombs dropped rose, after a decline starting last July. The munitions were released during 2,110 close-air support sorties. The actual number of airstrikes was higher because the AFCent numbers don’t include attacks by helicopters and special operations gunships. The numbers also don’t include strafing runs or launches of small missiles.

As far as drones:

Strikes under the Bush Administration: 52
Strikes under the Obama Administration: 318

Other commanders in chief have presided over wars with far higher casualty counts. But no president has ever relied so extensively on the secret killing of individuals to advance the nation’s security goals.

There's obviously a bit of hypocrisy on both sides in this affair, but I have to say that watching Republican pols and conservative pundits get on their high horses about Syria has been pretty nauseating. These are guys who mostly have never met a war they didn't like, and until a few months ago were practically baying at the moon to demand that that President Obama stop diddling around and get serious about aiding the rebels and taking out the monstrous Basar al-Assad. But now? Butter wouldn't melt in their mouths as they talk piously about the value of multilateral support; the need to give diplomacy a chance; the perils of regional blowback; and the fear of escalation if Assad retaliates. You'd think they'd all just returned from a Save the Whales conference in Marin County.

There are some Republicans who are perfectly serious about their desire not to get entangled in yet another Middle Eastern conflict. But most of them couldn't care less. Obama is for it, so they're against it. It's pretty hard to take.

His assigned task now is to help the Muslim Brotherhood take over a country after they got tossed out in Egypt.
The bottom line significance is, if the Assad government falls, Al Qaeda will get a huge store of chemical weapons.
What person with any sense at all wants Al Qaeda to get chemical weapons?.... Obama and all the mindless followers.
Helping an enemy of the United States get chemical weapons is a hanging offense.
Obama is 100% controlled by Jews . Obama should be executed for being a loser and traitor like Bush and Cheney who are also controlled by crooked Jews ...BOMB ISRAEL ! JEWS LIKE DISNEY AND PRITZKER ARE DESTROYING THE USA . ISRAEL ARE COLD BLOODED KILLERS

Protecting the innocent is always the right thing to do.

We should have done more in Rwanda and Darfur just as the UN should have.

The problem in Syria is civilians are fighting Assad in the name of human rights but are suspected to be infiltrated by al Qaeda who want Assad dead and his power for their own reasons.

There doesn't seem to be a clear objective in Syria and it's ALWAYS the liberals in this country who do not like America being the peacekeepers - and this president has done little to show the rest of the world he is any different.

You simply cannot deny this is true.

Obama is in a tight spot. He's a stooge for the Muslim Brotherhood who wants him to order the US Armed Forces to join Al Qaeda and help take over the country, while at the same time the President of Russia says in a public statement to the world the Secretary of State of the United States is a liar.(That must have been the first time Putin ever talked with Kerry. Anyone who knows Kerry also knows he's a lying fraud for a living.)
The Democrats here have not a f**k*ng clue what this means in the world.
What Putin is saying to the world is, you can't believe anything the United States says.
Can anyone here tell us when in history a head of state of one country publicly called the foreign minister of any other country a liar?
It is a very, very rare event. The only case I can think of in recent history is Chruchill calling Hitler a liar.
I'd give just about anything to be a fly on the wall when Obama and Putin sit down to talk about Syria this week at the G20 summit. You would too, I'm sure.

Hate to say it because Obama IS America's representative on the world stage, but Putin is going to play him like a Stradivarius violin. And, therefore, the rest of us. In Putin's eyes, America voted for him. Isn't that right liberals and confused moderates?

I don't think that protecting the innocent has anything to do with it. If there were oil interests in Rwanda or Darfur, you can be sure that the US would have gotten involved. While we are all talking about chemical weapons and AlQuaeda, and rebels and overthrowing Assad; there's an entire other agenda going on; oil pipelines.
Saudi Arabia and Israel are behind the scenes.
