Like Tab said, nothing's been "started" yet. Yet probably being the key word, there.
If America does get involved in that mess, I don't see how it could possibly turn out any differently than Iraq - a quagmire, an exercise in futility. We could make a few positive changes, perhaps, but the minute our soldiers' boots leave the sand, the warring factions will probably be right back at it again.
It's a fine line between allowing atrocities and butting in.
What do you think will happen?
I agree, another quagmire. I don't think there is a line though. We are in or out. We won't be allowed to get a little bit involved. It will be "game on".

Colin Powell: Voting restrictions ‘are going to backfire’ on Republicans
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell on Sunday warned fellow Republicans that voting restrictions designed to reduce the turnout of minorities, young people and seniors were “going to backfire” on the party.
Powell told CBS host Bob Schieffer that the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn part of the Voting Rights Act had been followed by states “putting in place procedures and new legislation that in some ways makes it a little bit harder to vote, you need a photo ID.”
“And they claim there is widespread abuse and voter fraud, but nothing documented, nothing substantiates that,” he pointed out.“There isn’t widespread abuse. And so these kinds of procedures that are being put in place to slow the process down and make it likely that fewer Hispanics and African-Americans might vote, I think, are going to backfire because these people are going to come out and do what they have to do in order to vote. And I encourage that.”
Powell added that he wanted to give Republicans the benefit of the doubt that they wanted to improve the voting system,“but when they start to say, let’s restrict the number of voting hours or make it harder for students to vote, then I have to get a little bit suspicious of it.”
“Here’s what I say to my Republican friends: The country is becoming more diverse. Asian-American, Hispanic-Americans and African-Americans are going to constitute a majority of the population in another generation. You say you want to reach out, you say you want to have a new message, you say you want to see if you can bring some of these voters to the Republican side. This is not the way to do it.”
“The way to do it is to make it easier for them to vote,” Powell insisted.“And then give them something to vote for that they can believe in. It’s not enough just to say, we have to have a new message. We have to have a new substance to that new message.”

That's not all that will backfire on them. They are doomed. Everyday they get more bizarre. I love Colin Powell. He backed Obama in both elections and should switch parties. He makes a better DEM.
RIP GOP

I haven't always agreed with Colin Powell, but I've always respected his opinion, and totally agree with him on these points. I love the statement "And then give them something to vote for that they can believe in." Eloquent and just awesome.

Ted Cruz: Republicans repealing Obamacare to help African-Americans and Hispanics
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) says that Republicans are working to defund and repeal President Barack Obama’s health care reform law in order to help African-Americans and Hispanics.
In an interview with CNN that aired on Sunday, Cruz told host Candy Crowley that he was “not convinced” that the president would continue to refuse to repeal his signature legislation if Republicans forced a government shutdown.
The Texas Republican admitted that he did not yet have the votes to shut down the government, but he didn’t expect the fight to heat up until September.
“It’s going to take a tsunami, and I’m going to do everything I can to encourage that tsunami,” he explained.
“But what about, you lost?” Crowley asked.“This has been put into law. It’s already law. Why not just get on board and try it?”
“Because it’s not working and it’s hurting Americans,” Cruz insisted.“And by the way, the people that it’s hurting the most are the most vulnerable among us are the more vulnerable among us. The people who are losing their jobs are young people, are Hispanics, are African-Americans, are single moms. I don’t think that’s fair, I don’t think that’s right.”
According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, 500,000 young African-Americans and 913,000 Latinos have already benefited from Obamacare because they have been allowed to stay on their parents’ health care plans. Additionally, 6.8 million African-Americans and 10.8 million Latinos will have opportunities to buy coverage through health care exchanges.

Guess these idiots don't think there are statistics out there that shoot down all their bullshit. Jeeze, these repukes are ignorant. This is one huge fabricated lie for cruz. I guess they can't help themselves. They will all come back to bite them. Voters aren't that stupid.
I guess if Obama is considered a muslim because his dad was from Kenya, then cruz must be considered a COMMUNIST since his dad was from CUBA. Ya think? hahaha

As we see here on a daily basis Ms RC...... Republicans and facts are two words you can't use in the same sentence.

:-D the spin is amazing.....as they go on and on about hating other races and being bigots, and making sure those very same people have a very difficult time voting. They claim to care.

How sad is that, the people who vote for them are amazingly ignorant and so easily fooled.

You'd think two presidential elections would have shown them by now they're behind the times.

Hey, RC Co-Cola! What a great camping set up - I'm so glad you had a wonderful time. I'm with you on the sleeping thing - every so often friends camp by the river at my place, nothing as elaborate as your campsite, though! When they invite me to join them, I just tell 'em I've got a California King waiting for me at the top of the hill...lol. If I tried to sleep on the ground these days, I wouldn't be able to move for a week!
It *is* a beautiful day, isn't it? After lunch I'm going fishing, I think.
It is a great set up. They have been doing it for years. Tubing, skiing, fishing, music, cards, corn hole, volleyball/badminton, lots of good food, laughs galore. But I am a wuss when it comes to camping out. Even the motor home. I have stayed in in everytime I stay all night. Still don't get any sleep, everyone coming in for the AC, watching DVD's etc..Sometimes I just take the drive home and go back the next day if I am not to wiped out. Did enough of that in my younger years. Too much fun. I like Rough River too, but Nolin is the place. I love to fish too. Hope you get some fresh fish for dinner. There is nothing like it. Yummy.

Had fun last night playing with the clowns. They must be recruiting for their circus on the other threads. hahaha

I mean it's a fine line between knowing when to intervene and when to keep out of it.

I agree with you that there's no " a little bit involved". It's like saying "a little bit pregnant". Either you is or you ain't.

But what's the answer other than "game on"? Do we stand by and let them gas children? We can rationalize not putting more of our troops in harm's way, but how do we rationalize dead children?

Did you forget Medicare? Jim DeMint claims ‘federal health care’ can’t work

CNN host Dana Bash offered no fact check on Sunday as Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint (R) falsely claimed that fewer doctors accepted Medicare than private insurance.

During a Sunday interview, DeMint explained that Heritage Action had launched a nine-city tour to rally Americans in support of repealing Obamacare because it was an “unfair and un-American law.”

“Federal health care is not going to provide good health care to Americans,” DeMint insisted.“You can’t find a federal program that’s working effectively.”

“Jim, I disagree with that,” former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean (D) replied.“I think Medicare works pretty darn well and people like it. And that’s a federal program that works very well for people.”

“It’s tens of trillions of dollars in debt because it’s been mismanaged, it’s going to leave huge debts onto our children, and more and more doctors won’t even see a Medicare-insured patient,” DeMint replied.“So, it is not going to work for the future.”

The former South Carolina senator continued:“And as we put more people on Medicare and Medicaid, and that’s what Obamacare is going to do, is to push more people into Medicaid-style plans, fewer and fewer doctors are going to see these folks. So, we need to make sure we get health insurance that doctors will actually take.”

“I’m sure it won’t surprise you to know that I disagree with that,” Dean said before he was interrupted by Bash.

“I’m so shocked,” she snarked, promising to allow Dean to respond following a commercial break.

But after the show resumed, Bash changed the subject to the 2016 presidential race.

“Before we get to that, let me get a little equal time on health care,” Dean demanded.“You know, I was not a supporter of Obamacare when it passed. I am now. I think this ought to be implemented. You know, in our little medical office in Burlington, Vermont, we’ve discovered that premiums are going to be cut in half for the five people who work for my wife and her partners. So, this is going to make a big difference.”

In fact, a Department of Health and Human Services report released last week found that the number of doctors accepting Medicare was higher than the number of doctors accepting private insurance.

“These findings allay concern that the number of physicians ‘opting out’ of Medicare has increased in recent years,” the report said.

What, Barry didn't put us in Afghanistan. At least Bush did finally respond to the 9/11 attack. Besides that, bottom line of the 'fear' of WMD's in Iraq, who did they get those WMD's that we were looking for? Does President Ronald Reagan VP George HW Bush ring a bell with the assistance of Donald Rumsfeld? Lets go on and look at the Iran/Contra scandal. Oh wait, we can't... GW Bush pardoned all of those charged before they could go before a court of law and we could possibly get to ANY truth. Although even if it went to court, we still would not have gotten to the truth. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/arti...
Never said I agreed with what they did, and changing the subject doesn't answer the question.

getting involved in the Syrian conflict is a bone head idea...it also seems that there is a lot of pressure from the right to do so. Wasn't it John McCain who met with the rebels, which included an Al Qaeda leader. In fact old john had his picture taken with him.
the conflict in Syria is another war between the Sunnis and Shia. Let them fight it out and kill each other.
He got Americans involved when he drew the "RED LINE" in the sand...he knew they had already crossed it!
The conundrum he faces is that The press has chosen to represent his side as the aggressors! Now he will have to manufacture another way to kill Christians!
