There you go showing your ignorance once again. Must be a Scottsbluff, NE thing.
FYI, there was a U.N. Security Council draft resolution in February, 2012 condemning Syria for it's "bloody violence". Thirteen Security Council members voted in favor of the resolution, including the United States. It failed because Russia and China used their veto power to shoot it down.
"Those that have blocked potentially the last effort to resolve this peacefully ... will have any future blood spill on their hands," U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice told CNN. "The people of Syria have yet again been abandoned by this Council and by the international community."
Israel started this whole mess by forwarding to the United States "intelligence" data regarding Aasad's use of chemical weapons. That is a FACT. It is only "anti-Semantic, misogynistic, homophobic, or racist" if you are calling Massad a bunch of liars. If Obama is a "cowboy", Israel is the saddle upon which he rides.
You are NO position to call anyone slow.

For the third time. Obama did not go to the UN for approval of his military strike.

A vote for condemnation is not the same thing. Rice's BS blood on their hands does not seem to be mustering much support for this military strike.

Let me get your illogical thoughts straight here-if I can. It is Israel's fault because they shared intelligence with the US?

That is most pathetic excuse for both being a anti-Zionist idiot and for Obama's decision for a military strike.

MSU Relieves Prof. Who Went On GOP Rant:‘They Have Already Raped This Country’

A professor at Michigan State University has been relieved of his teaching duties after making anti-Republican comments in front of a college class, the Detroit News reported Thursday.

Writing professor William Penn said in videotaped remarks posted by CampusReform, an organization geared toward young conservative students, that Republicans "don't want to pay taxes because they have already raped this country and gotten everything out of it they possibly could." In a nod to his students, he added that GOP supporters don't want to pay for college students' tuition.

Penn went on to slam former presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann.

"But Ann Romney a first lady? And remember this if you are just going to be a greedy bastard all your whole life," he said in the video, which was recorded by a student last week. "In order to be rich like Mitt Romney … you have to be, think about it, Mitt Romney."

"Anybody here want to be Mitt Romney? Him? Married to her?" he asked the class.

“The dean of the College of Arts and Letters and a representative from the provost’s office met with Penn, who acknowledged that some of his comments were inappropriate, disrespectful and offensive and may have negatively affected the learning environment,” the university said in a statement, as quoted by the Detroit News.

MSU spokesman Jason Cody told the newspaper that Penn will remain employed with the university, although his classes have been reassigned for at least the remainder of the fall semester.

Rush Limbaugh has written a kid's book called—wait for it—"Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans." It's being published on October 29th.

Here is the cover:....

Eagle-eyed readers might have noticed that Limbaugh appears to have turned himself into American revolutionary hero Paul Revere—an audacious move, certainly. Rush Revere also happens to be the main character in Limbaugh's iced tea line, "Two If By Tea."

Here's how Limbaugh described the book:

Rush Revere is a substitute school teacher at a middle school anywhere in America, and he will take a couple of students with him to the first Thanksgiving, and they will learn all about it. Again it is a unique way of reaching the target audience here, which is America's young people -- who are, sadly, not being taught what is in this book. And what's in this book is the historical record, accurate historical record of the Pilgrims. It's who they were, why they existed, where they were, how they got here, what they did when they got here, and what they did and why it mattered and related to the founding of this country.

There's also going to be an audiobook, which we assume Limbaugh will be reading. All parents will probably want to tuck their children in at night and switch on the smooth sounds of Rush Limbaugh holding forth about American history.

Good grief, FYI

"

The Swedish Army trains land combat and air defence units which, in concert with Air Force and naval units, can be deployed operationally on both national and international missions.

The Army’s land forces are being reoriented towards an increasingly clear rapid-response, mission-oriented role which includes participation in international operations."

Given the president of Russia called the Secretary of State of the United States a liar after they discussed Syria, and Obama is acting as if the United States is the world's policeman, I would not be surprised if Russia joined the battle if Obama attacks Syria.
Kerry has a long history of lying. Obama is a pathological liar. The United States has lost all credibility in the world.
If I were Putin, I'd be looking for an opportunity to put Obama in his place. Syria would be the perfect time and place.
Obama has put the entire country in a horrible position. We need to get that ignorant buffoon out of the White House now.
Did you see the latest video of a half dozen or so Syrian "rebels" (the people we would be supporting) standing behind Syrian soldiers who were face down on the ground with their hands tied behind their backs about to be executed after being beaten and tortured?

Pretty sure that's why a lot of people have understandable reservations. To prevent WWIII.

If Obama's strike fails, we could be facing the wrath of Russia, China and Iran.

And, of course, Israel will be targeted and forced to retaliate in self defense.

Obama's history of incompetency and narcissism is enough reason to give any rational person pause.

Cancelled a fundraiser???

Even an attack on 9/11 and four dead Americans including an ambassador didn't stop him from flying off to a fundraiser the very next day!

Heaven help us if he cancelled a fundraiser!!

Well, let me think a minute. The 9/11 attack was right before an election. Fundraising was much more important then than starting a war now. So maybe it's not that much of a shock after all.

I have encountered many William Penns during my time in academia. Keep your mouth shut or your grade will suffer. One time, the teacher didn't like the smirk I wore on my face while listening to his anti-conservative rant and actually called me into his office after class. He hit me. I immediately left for the provost and found him there smiling at me when I entered. Turns out, he had connections high up in administration.

Another time, the English instructor spent an entire class lecturing us on why we shouldn't vote for any Republicans in the upcoming November election.

There are many other incidents. I saw this story on TV tonight and realized that it is nothing new. American Academia has been commandeered by the Left starting way back there in the 60's.

Fight the bass turds. This guy should be fired for propagandizing on the public dole.

Hell, one of 'em is sitting in the White House.

90% of Americans are against our doing anything in Syria and the Magic Negro keeps trying to save his credibility. I watched a TV reporter tonight doing man-on-the-street interviews about going into Syria. NOBODY who was asked was pro-intervention. Not black, not white, not Arab, not Jewish, not old, not young...NOBODY!

He failed in Egypt, he failed in Libya, he f*cked up Afghanistan and now he still wants to try his luck with Syria. Somebody should smack him up side the head with his Nobel Gold.

Impeach the bas turd.
