Ewwww it takes a GOP Hawk wow, I think it takes a stupid democrat to vote for the stupid attack.
So all these years anti war, and nothing, they stand for nothing.
At least us normal thinking people just attack the dang place since we are known as war mungers, right ?
gah this is all so stupid !!!!!!
The left's own "anti-war campaigning" president is currently sporting for a war because of an amateur "red line" statement he himself made.

Yes, this is all so stupid. The American people are not in any way supportive of this attack on Syria - and polls show it clearly. The Obama admin has broadcast the notion for such a long time now they've all but eliminated any chance of an effective strike anyway. YET, our of some "save my ass" arrogant mentality, Obama is insisting that we need to lob some missiles over there, the American people be damned.

Stupid, irresponsible, and entirely progressive decision.

Obama has NO plan!
That is the problem.
He just wants to shoot some Tomahawk missile's over there.
Obama is totally clueless.
These are the people he wants to defend:

He wants to defend terrorist's!
We should stay out of it!
Wondering why someone decided to give a missile a name????

Where is the proof that we know with 100% confidence who is guilty of attacking innocent Syrians with chemicals? Congress had private meetings that were suppose to reveal confidential intelligence, yet still only a few congress members, from either side, are in favor of Obama's plan.

It seems most of us have learned from Iraq. It seems all of Obama's anti-war, anti-Bush rhetoric was just that - campaign rhetoric - and not even his loyal democrats are supporting him now that he's attempting to drag us back into another Middle East war without solid intelligence.

Or did they? Look's like our President has actually, possibly saved this situation....His insistance on attacking Assad, resulting in media outrage on a global level.....and forcing the dictator to work a deal, through Putin....to hand over all Chemical Weapons....And, without one shot fired.....BRILLIANT......

It would have been a lot better if Obama had thought of or suggested it before Putin.
I wonder however, if Syria would have been so receptive to the suggestion if he had done so...purely on who made the suggestion if you know what I mean.

You have such amazing ignorance. Obama had almost nothing to do with the setup.
As stated before none of this would be necessary if Obama would have done something two years ago and many life's ago when the rebels where doing do much better. This deal is falling apart at present time.
