After the press conference I need to recalibrate opinion. This means no more Cherry Picking of issues to weigh in on. Let the lawyer parsing of words begin :)

Both the Al Qaeda and Hezbollah backed rebels and the Assad regime hate us. Why does any American care what happens in Syria?

America is not the world's police force. That's the job of the UN.

There is no question that Syria has engaged in chemical warfare, the questions is how the US should response. The administration claims this act is an international outrage, violating international “norms” and the world must response. However, there does not appear to be broad international support for a “limited” strike, with cost for the first strike is estimated between couple hundred to a billion. So far, the President has built a coalition of one, France. Senator McCain demanded and received an agreement from the President “to do more” for the Senator’s support. General Dempsey has already recommended “additional options” if the first strike does not deter. Which brings up the question of what next? During yesterday’s hearing it became obvious that in order to garner support for this act of war, the President will have to promise, as Senior Graham has demanded “a long term strategy”. This will not be a limited strike. Mission creep is already working its’ way into the process. Today there will be a vote in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the war resolution, in which Senator Kaine sits. Contract the Senator at kaine.senate.gov ; tell him to just say no!

I know this is callous, but I agree "screw them". I will never forget the day after 9/11 and news shots of Muslims all over the Mid East celebrating.

Piggy voted for Obama and I can say that he made a mistake with the "red line" comment. He knows that. I think he's lying about wanting to bomb Syria and is hoping congress votes it down. Heck, the Republicans vote down everything Obama introduces. Why would this turn out any differently? I believe if Obama introduced a bill today to impeach himself the Republicans would vote that down. Oink Oink

I hope I'm right, because if I'm wrong Obama is not the man I thought he was.

RW said he want to weigh in.
It his first song I heard on "Outlaw Country"
I understand the feeling but do not agree. We go there so it does not happen here. Keep that in mind, I spent 9 of the 25 years on the tip of the spear.

I thought we were going to save Egypt. Did they break out in Peace.
Assad did not get the message on our commitment to Dictators who poison their own people. We saved Iraq and lots of other countries since WW2. It cost us nothing? If we kill some women and children with our drones or any of our sons and daughters are wounded or killed. Its only collateral damage. Its not like its Murder?????

It's a sad situation. Thank you, Mr. Bush for the Billions and Bllions we spent (and are still spending) in the region, unnecessarily---based on his, and many other's Cold War mentality. Thank God our leadership hasn't envaded with unawrrented expetations, like the past. We shall do something and pray fo the best.

Are you kidding me? Who did we save?

Vietnam....nope - Vietnam saved themselves over time after we left.

Only half of Korea - At least we accomplished something

African countries....nope - there is more genocide in Africa that middle east,

Iraq...nope - they are worse off now than before we "saved" them. We left them with a war torn country, destroyed infrastructure, destroyed businesses, no resolution in tribal fighting, an ineffective government with regular assassinations of leaders....

Afghanistan...might be a bit better, but we are still there...once we leave it will digress same way Iraq did.

Looks to me that we messed with them and gave up each time.

Thank you Jody, that is exactly the way I wanted people to start thinking. I all of the region around Syria is afraid of chemical weapons, why in the Heck don't they do something. Not one of our men and women should be sent in harms way in that part of the world.
Lets cut SS, Medicare and Medicaid, then we can afford wars. And forget all the welfare folks, etc etc etc.
O heck this is so boring, lets just take our phones and play Poker.

Hi! I'm Dick. I'm all for war, but not this one, because Obama is pushing for it, and, well we all know Obama is a llama. Gotta go give my daughter Mary a crew cut now.

I am against all wars, except for this one. All previous wars started by the previous admin did not gain approval from the international community. I guess this one will not either but the mullato messiah wants this and we must submit to his will. Plus this is about the use of illegal chemical weapons and there for something must be done. What is that you say? That Iraq gassed its own people in the north about 13 or 14 years ago, but that occurred when the war criminal Bush was in office and there was no need for war. Whats the difference? Well there is a big difference, I dont know what it is but the mullato messiah says there is one!

Putting aside the comments from a bigot. Senator Kaine vote with the majority to authorize our military to engage in aggression against another sovereign nation. Make no mistake, this is a vote to conduct an illegal act of war. In order to secure enough votes, the President’s promise of “limited and narrow in scope” was amended to a broader commitment. Inserted into the resolution by Senator McCain; “decisive changes to the present military balance of power”.

Changing the balance of power will create a vacuum, which will be filled by the Al Qaeda backed opposition forces. General Dempsey stated testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, that in the event the Islamist threaten to capture the stockpiles of Chemical Weapons, the US would be forced to insert ground troops to secure them.

Soon the War Resolution will be debated on the Senate floor. Contact Senator Warner @ warner.senate.gov and tell him – Just say NO!
