More like fall ass backwards into an escalation. And can't tell the truth because they, and corp media have been, for years, labeling "kooky" everyone who has already surmised and stated what's up in Syria, what was up in Iraq, Egypt, Iran, Arabia... We do go way back.<quoted text>
It's just embarrassing to the point of being humiliated to have a president that gets slapped around so much, and he keeps doing the exact same stupid things over and over again.
Now, he's going to escalate to war.
When will these ignorant Democrats realize Obama is an ignorant buffoon, and the most dangerous thing possible is to have him as president.
I can see a major war resulting from this very easily. All that is necessary is for Russia to protect their ally, like I'm sure there is an agreement between them to do.
So I see it this way. We strike. Russia acts to neutralize the threat to it's 30,000 personnel across Syria and attacks our ships, which will probably require authorization to defend themselves...you know where this is going...and we're left with 4 sunken cruisers, mad as hell, etc.
Simply not worth the risk. Oil, that is. Yep, I think the game is still the same.
