It is a very sticky situation indeed. Because America is not in that region of the world countries that are have already stated that if America can attack Syria for WMD's then they will attack Israel for WMD's.

Using this logic the UN would have to agree. Obama has already said he doesn't care what the UN says. Just like he tends not to care about what Congress has to say about anything.

No, I agree. The line that couldn't be crossed has been crossed. These thugs are doing it to show that they can. It always comes down to us saving the world at the expense of us saving us and were getting weary. The stock market revolts because we're stretched too thin. Our soldiers are exhausted. Our roads and bridges are crumbling and we are expected to police the world because we have the best military. Our action will not overturn the regime and will only inflame, but may deter Iran from getting any ideas. This is a tough one.
Syria knew that we would get involved if the carried out the attack on their own people. They expected that beforehand. This is not a surprise to Syria.

It is almost like these countries are doing these attacks to provoke us into a conflict with them anyways. There is probably more to the story that we may never hear about.

Remember other countries know that the best way to attack us is to bring down our economy and this is the way to do it. Make the Americans spend billions more for their military to enter another conflict. If the keep making us do this they figure America will look like a middle east country within 50-100 years.

They have been fighting for hundreds of years and living in a sand pit. So now they want America to be the same way.

I have always felt that America is the country that will actually put their resources and do what they say they will do. It is a problem that we get dragged into all of these confrontations, but there is something we can do that would make a dramatic difference...

If we enter into a confrontation and must inflict damage...leave that damage in place for that country to expend their resources fixing instead of damaging our economy providing that resource.

We must stop repairing the damage that we had to bring about in order to fix a problem that we shouldn't be dragged into to begin with...maybe that would stop some of it.

We also must take a hard look at the continuance of American assets in countries that have the ability to handle their own situations and pull back those assets for use elsewhere...we are stretching ourselves too thin.

Hi Somehow,
It isn't often that I agree with the decisions coming out of the Obama Administration, but I am in agreement on this...if governments are allowed to do this type of thing, it would happen more and more often from some of the governments that control their people with force.
I would suspect that they wouldn't put their command and control locations where the chemicals are for fear that they would be destroyed by those very chemicals in the event of an attack, but I am in hopes that our intelligence gathering folks can do a better job this time, as compared to Iraq.
It's a welcome statement to see your first sentence, the man is not responsible for more than half of what he's been blamed for by we'll just call them xxxxxxxx.

However, I would much prefer to see an international coalition of agreement on what, when and where action is taken. Otherwise, we take ownership and there really is no need for us to have this ownership of international crisis resolution.

After all, since the Iraq War (we killed thousands of innocent people there, just with conventional weapons)we are at this moment no shining example of peace that's for sure.

Still is, nobody is talking about starting a War like Bush, Cheney and the Neocons who started the Iraq War without provication.

If the Republicans in Congress could utter even one salient word, it might be different, they've done absolutely nothing but try and thwart any attempt at fixing anything. Rememebr the goal, making Obama a one term President?

Let's see how willing they are to threaten the full faith and credit of the country and sink the economy on purpose again while we deal with international crisis!

Somehow, you've become what's referred to as a "useful idiot". Stop LYING!
Have you forgotten that Barry was a rookie Senator before he became President while his party took control of both the House and Senate back in 2007. Back then Barry voted for the budgets and financial crisis he now blames on Bush. He spent his first year as President with control of all three branches of government, hence, Obamacare. And before all that Barry was a Community Activist and an Attorney for a group known as ACORN that sued our banking industry into giving out loans to those who were not qualified and could not afford mortgages, hence, the housing crisis. So you see, Barry is just as responsible for this financial crisis as his party and if not, then more, if you care to remember back when Bush’s warned us all while attempting to reign in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. But I suppose that might be a little bit too far back for your recollection when considering you’re days of the week are all the same. So here’s something to jog your memory.

You're the only one still trying to argue that Bush, Cheney and the Neocons in the administration were specifically "fixing the facts around the policy".

I was here the last 15 years and so was most everyone else and nobody would even try and blame a Dem for starting that war!

IS the person lied to who voted for something more to blame than the person who lied to them in order to get that vote?

Stamos, you're a half wit!

Every single Republican now in leadership also voted for the Iraq War, UNFUNDED AND BORROWED, voted for Medicare part D UNFUNDED and BORROWED, voted for Tax breaks serving mostly the richest, UNFUNDED AND BORROWED and are all now crying cause we need to pay the bills!!!! Now you call him a big gubmint spender, you're a half wit and apparently my cerebral cortex works inclusive while yours likes to only single out one man, the one you call "Barry"!

Are you really this naïve? And you are aware, that it was Clinton, NOT Bush who signed the “Iraq Liberation Act” which authorized the use of force to remove the Iraq tyrant from power. Had Clinton not been so distracted with his Lewinski sex scandal at the time maybe Bush wouldn't have had to finish what he never finished.

And what lie? Why ignore the whole story? Was the killing of thousands of Iraqi Kurds and their families in northern Iraq with WMD's (nerve gas) a lie? If so, then Democrats were all lying before Bush even became President.

In simple reality there is big money in war. We pay contractors for bombs, tanks, planes etc... Then we pay contractors to go to the country we just leveled to build them schools, hospitals etc.... It's all back end deals and Congressmen and Obama are looking at a very big secret payday. It has nothing to do with Syrias civil war in all reality we couldn't give a shit less about Syrian people. It's all about MONEY.

In most cases that is true but not in this case. Americans care about people in general and we have the role of being the "world police" whether people like it or not.

In this case we are now justified on taking action since we have the facts now.

Obviously a recession may come back again if this becomes a long term conflict but we cannot let a government do this to their own people.

Sorry Droopy but there is more to this situation than Americans "caring about people". Look at the genocides in Africa that continue as I type this. Why aren't we stepping in there and stopping it? Please only a logical response and no insults towards me. Thank you.

Well it looks like Obama and Kerry have put us balls deep into the Syrian civil war. They call it 'retaliation'. What the Syrians have ever done to Americans I don't know but now they will pay for it!
