Obama is really making Bush look good. Hell, he even makes Carter look good. Or Pee Wee Herman for that matter.<quoted text>
Sending humanitarian aid does not make them friends or allies. We offer to send aid to every country when disaster strikes.
Of Course, Assad would say we were wrong invading Iraq, he thought he might be next.
You are sofa king stupid, you think Sadam send WMDs to Syria when he thought he would be attacked. Yep, that makes perfect sense " OMG OMG I'm going to get attacked. Better deplete our arsenal"
This is how stupid you are.
Instead of admitting Bush was wrong on Iraq's WMD, you f*cking morons concoct that extremely dumb story about adam sending them to Syria.
It would be different if instead of killing a few hundred civilians, Assad had killed 5,000 civilians with poison gas in a single day, as well as tens of thousands more with chemical weapons in the past few decades.
It would be different if Assad were known to torture his own people, administer summary executions, rapes, burnings and electric shocks, often in front of the victim's wife or children.
It would be different if Assad had acted aggressively toward the United States itself, perhaps attempting to assassinate a former U.S. president or giving shelter to terrorists who had struck within the U.S.-- someone like Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood terrorist.
It would be different if Assad were stirring up trouble in the entire Middle East by, for example, paying bounties to the families of suicide bombers in other countries.
It would also be different if we could be sure that intervention in Syria would not lead to a multi-nation conflagration.
It would be different if we knew that any action against Syria would not put al-Qaida or the Muslim Brotherhood in power, but rather would result in a functioning, peaceful democracy.
And it would be different if an attack on Syria would so terrify other dictators in the region that they would instantly give up their WMDs -- say, Iran abandoning its nuclear program.
If all of that were true, this would be a military intervention worth supporting!
All of that was true about Iraq, but the Democrats hysterically opposed that war. They opposed it even after all this was known to be true -- indeed, especially after it was known to be true!
The loudest opponent was Barack Hussein Obama.
