I don't think we should intervene in Syria. but I do think we should provide as much humanitarian aid for the refugees. over 100,000 Syrians are now in a tent city across the border in Jordan, in the middle of the desert.

Yeah, just like those advisers that Kennedy sent into Vietnam in the early 60's.

Ha! Good luck with that! Let me know how that works out for ya!
And bad news for your Muslim friend, it takes YEARS for citizenship to go through, assuming he'll be granted one. Don't think he'll be voting in any elections anytime soon.
I know that you know EVERYFUCKINGTHING but the citizenship thing will take 3 months. The day he takes the test he will get sworn in. I know because I checked with the people who do this all the time, just today. I specifically asked that question. So yeah he'll be voting democrat in 2014 and 2016...

Have you sent emails or FB posts to your Congressman and Senators stating your opinion on Syria? Whatever that opinion may be.
Present tense activism goes hand in hand with future voters.
I also called all of their offices this morning.:D

As to the citizenship thing, I've been intimately involved with the whole process since the first I-130 (that *I* completed all by my little lonesome) was filed. I think I know a little bit more about it than edog.

So yup even though the who thought of a MUSLIM becoming a VOTING citizen, a citizen who will vote DEMOCRAT bugs edog no end, personally I am in utter bliss about it; first because he will vote DEMOCRAT, second because he will be sponsoring his MUSLIM relatives, and third because edog can't do anything about it.:D

Just because I don't make a point of sharing my politics here doesn't mean that I'm not politically active. I know (always know) who my senators and reps are.I keep their phone numbers, physical addresses (local and in DC) as well as emails in my contacts. I contact them from time to time on certain issues. Voted in every election since I was 18. Even when I was living overseas.

No.
Bad things happen all over the world.
It is not the US business to poke its nose in to the Syrian conflict.

As Race pointed out, I am a strong advocate for "playing nice", I also feel strongly that we can't and therefore shouldn't intervene when there is no clear obtainable goal and the risks of expanding our involvement are high.

I have a bad feeling. This is way too much like early 2003.

I am hoping Obama does not act on a macho impulse to show how strong we are as Bush felt the need to do so.

The arguments that w have the money to bomb Syria but not save Detroit is the old Guns vs Butter argument of the Hawks v Doves in the 60's.

Nothing ever changes. Not a damned thing.

Obama cut everyone's unemployment benefits and blamed it on the sequester. But when it comes to sending war ships and missiles into Syria, money's no issue. It's sickening.

Technology has changed how much of the world works....but please answer this....If we knew that several days ago...we learned, Germany was gassing their own people, men, women and children...as fast as they could.....that you would be comfortable, looking the other way?

God this site has gotten worse. Those stupid "Ads by ZINC" to the left that keep sliding over my screen. And now there are ads at the bottom that pop up.

And we can't afford the Blue Angels at the air and water show, but we can afford to lob missiles into Syria. Our president, and our government, is a sick and dangerous joke.

And I've known more than one person who's attempted to become a US citizen, waded through all the paperwork and thousands of dollars, and were either denied or gave up. It's not as easy as Mimi is trying to make it sound. In other words, I think she's full of it.
