Maybe not all Muslims are terrorists, but so far almost all the terrorists we have discovered are Muslim. Muslims blew up the WTC. Hassan is a Muslim. A muslim drove his car into a group of people waiting for a bus in California. There are many reasons to be leery of Muslims,

The terrorists FSA Jew pig bastardized Poofters , have been heartened by Obama again raising their expectation bombing is about to start.
It must be the will of Allah if it does.
From my point of view terror tactics have no place in Islam.
We have got the Messiah , which is me and the Mahdi , why wouldn't we go with Democracy in Syria .?.
It's a certain thing , no wonder the Jew keep me locked up here.

Bush41 and Bush43 had BOTH when military action was taken against Iraq. The Obamaniac is just being a dictator. He has no legal, nor constitutional authority to attack a country who has NOT attacked us, nor threatened us.

No, they didn't. And neither does G.W. Obama. The only true justification for going to war is if we were directly attacked. Iraq never attacked us and neither has Syria. There was also never any evidence laid down that Sadaam was connected to 9/11.

On April 29, 2007, former Director of Central Intelligence George Tenet said on 60 Minutes, "We could never verify that there was any Iraqi authority, direction and control, complicity with al-Qaeda for 9/11 or any operational act against America, period."[5]

This is a fact:
America is blessed for ONE reason, our support of Israel. With a muslim socialist dictator, barry soetoro will turn his back in Israel, and Syria will hit Israel to test America. Pray for Israel, it will be tested.
If you believe that somehow America is "blessed" because we support Israel, you are not much different than the middle eastern theocracies who believe that they are "blessed" by Allah and Mohamed.
Politics and international relations do not mix with religion.

Besides that, since Israel had nuclear weapons and is itching to use them, Syria wouldn't be around long after an attack on Israel.

What you say here is COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT.

In 1990, Iraq invaded Kuwait. Bush 41 asked for authorization for military force from Congress and he got it. Bush41 also asked for authorization FROM THE UNITED NATIONS for the use of military force to drive Iraqi military forces out of Kuwait, and he got that TOO from the U.N.

A military coalition, including, but not limited to: the U.S.A., Great Britain, France, Canada, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, The U.A.E., Syria, and others, UNDER THE APPROVAL OF THE U.N., forced Iraqi forces to withdraw from Kuwait.

In the 1991 Persian Gulf War, hostilities ended with a truce, NOT a peace treaty. Under the terms of the truce, military hostilities could resume at any time if the Iraqi government violated any terms of the truce. Saddam REPEATEDLY VIOLATED the truce MULTIPLE TIMES over several years.

Therefore, resumption of military hostilities against Iraq by Coalition Forces in 2003 did NOT need ANY FURTHER LEGAL AUTHORIZATION by the Congress OR the U.N., as this had been EXPRESSLY GRANTED in 1990.

In 1990 and 1991, Iraq DID EXPRESSLY THREATEN VITAL U.S. INTERESTS by INVADING KUWAIT, INVADING SAUDI ARABIA, AND ATTACKING ISRAEL.

Syria however has NOT invaded any of its neighbors, has NOT attacked Israel as Saddam did, has NOT threatened vital U.S. interests, and there is NO congressional authorization, NOR U.N. authorization for the use of military force against Syria as there was against Iraq.

This mad rush to war by the criminal Obamaniac is INSANE, WITHOUT congressional authorization, WITHOUT U.N. authorization, and The Obamaniac will be violating the U.S. Constitution, AND international law, if he attacks Syria.

It's better for the U.S., AND the world, that The Obamaniac be impeached and removed form office BEFORE he can launch any attack on Syria which will be CRIMINAL.

The Obamaniac PROMISED to "end the wars" in 2008 when he was running for POTUS. NOW he wants to start a THIRD MIDEAST WAR ?! THIS is what Dems and Libs voted for this BUM for ?!

IMPEACH THIS MUM ! THROW STUMBLEBUM JOE IN THERE ! NEXT !

No, it WASN'T a mistake. Saddam REPEATEDLY violated the terms of the cease-fire, AND REPEATEDLY violated U.N. resolutions. He was a MASS MURDERER who invaded neighboring countries and attacked Israel with ballistic missiles. Something that had NEVER been done since Hitler in the 1940's.

We SHOULD HAVE gotten rid of Saddam LONG before we finally did.
And the whole thing COULD HAVE BEEN avoided if Saddam had simply left the country like he was asked to do by Bush43. But he refused to do so.

Our subsequent invasion of Iraq in light of all of the facts I stated above was eminently justified in getting rid of Saddam once and for all.

Now Hitler didn't attack us in 1941, yet DEMOCRATIC POTUS FDR had congress declare war on Germany, and we put the BULK of our military efforts into invading Germany and destroying Hitler's regime, and only concentrated on defeating Japan, who DID attack us in 1941, only after Germany was defeated.

Are you also going to say now that we should NOT have attacked and invaded Germany because they never attacked us ?

Folks who complain about Al-Assad such as the Christians and Jews and even the vast majority of Sunni Muslims are going to have a heck of a lot to complain about if those rats come to power. But they will not come to power in the absence of a "no fly zone" and "mission creep" or a Congressional or UN resolution.

Our involvement with these 7th century theocracies has been a mistake from day one. We should never have gotten involved in their internal conflicts. Least of all for some mythological "U.S interests" in those countries.

There is no way to compare WWII to these incursions in to the middle east. It's an apples to catshit comparison. Hitler was an active and viable threat to pretty much, everyone and Japan did stage an attack on out shores.
These "mini-wars" in the middle east are motivated primarily by economic and political interests and whether they were "legal" or no, were not justifiable by any standard.
And we should not be getting involved in a civil war in Syria. As for Israel, they should be dealing with their own issues and are also greatly influenced by their theocratic "visionaries". They are also, not our problem.

If Alabama began gassing their neighboring states trailer parks, do you think for a minute that the UN would give a rip or that anyone would send in troops or bombs to protect Georgia or Mississippi?
No, it would be considered our problem.
THe middle eastern nations should be dealing with their own rabid dogs and should not receive one iota of aid, weapons, or anything else until they get rid of their theocracies and come in to the 21st century.

Saddam invaded Kuwait because he was paid in the beginning to invade Iran, and in his opinion it was "given money" not loaned.
When the whole thing failed in 1990 the West realizing they had bit off more than they could chew , Some patrons wanted their money back blaming Saddam for the failure , of course it was Allah .
The Amir al-Sabah was one of the greedy bastards.
However the interesting thing "is" not "was" Saddam made a deal with Bush to sacrifice his Army and spare Kuwait city, Jahra , and Ahmadi, and burn a few oil fields superficially instead, if Bush would stop at the border.
Which he did , but never I mean never do a deal with a Jew .
Silly bastard.

You really should read Dr. robert Kaplan's book "The Arabists" if you want an understanding beyond that of soundbytes of the long relationship the US has in the Near East.

50% of the rebels are AlQaeda. We cannot be foolish enough to now arm the enemy, our enemy. There is no support for this attack. This is like what the Germans were asked to accept under Hitler. This is not 1943 Germany. We will not take part in this atrocity.
