Probably no....unless Israel wants the strike.
The nobama administration has allowed the situation in the entire mideast to get out of control.
The horse has already left the barn....it is too late to accomplish anything meaningful except for nobama to save face after his ill advised "red line in the sand" threat.
These lunatic radical muslim zealots are not phacking around and nobama is obviously too far over his head.
He should take advice from the Israeli leadership from here on out in regard to the entire region.
Russia's Putin has now weighed in against the strike....it has become a very, very dangerous situation.

Thank you for stating your opinion and going on record about this. I really appreciate it. Be well.

No new wars.....

There is nothing any strike will do to solve the problem

Bush Sr was wrong
His kid was just as wrong
And oslama will be even worse

Funny how these liberals hated Bush going to war when millions were killed

Now liberals love war

When will the code punk prostitutes come out and support the new oslama war???

Definitely yes...

Despots like Bashar al-Assad are not swayed by rules of the law, mentally they are not much different then the ruffians and thugs on our streets and the trolls on TOPIX who the only thing they understand is a swift, well placed kick in the butt and a limit on their posts.

Letting Al-Assad or any other dictator to get away with gassing their own people only encourage other oppressors to engage in similar behavior.

Evidence of Saddam’s Weapons of Mass Destruction

Yup. The Bushes went after saddam for gassing his own people and the left went crazy about the warmongering Bushes.
Now, nobama wants to go after Assad for gasing his own people and the left is all for it?
wow.....hypocrits and trolls abound on this one.

The situation has gotten way out of control due to the nobama foreign policy(or lack thereof). nobama has NO U.N. mandate, and after all, our Country is war weary and broke........so nobama needs to back off of his threats (red line in the sand), suck it up and admit there is nothing positive to be gained by bombing/killing more Syrians.
What a mess he has made of the mideast. He has made it necessary for us to cut our losses and stay out of the mess.
Israeli protection should be our priority now.

You are right, "trolls do abound on this one" (Have you looked in the mirror lately?)

There is absolutely no doubt that Saddam had gas and used it on his own people and we sold him the gas then looked the other way when he used it, and...

The gas was not what bush and his sidekicks were after...

The excuse that Bush the W and his cronies used to attack Iraq was that Saddam was developing nuclear weapons....

Who can forget the campaign waged by the bush administration which was intended to terrify the American public about Saddam's "smoking gun... manifesting itself in the form of a mushroom cloud?"

Sadam killed up to a million people depending on who's account you read and liberals no blame Bush for taking him out

Now we are talking about a few hindered to a few thousand and they are ready for war

I am and was against all of these wars........

Unless we just nuke them.....

On the money Gramps. The reason the rest of the civilized world is skeptical and hesitant to follow us into Syria is because bush lied about the Iraq nuclear program.

Old saying, "once burned twice shy". Well we (bush) lied to the British so I don't blame them for being hesitant.

I do not blame the British at all for being hesitant at this juncture, and I do think they will come around when and if it becomes evident that Bashir Assad used gas on his own people and/or if he continues to engage in the practice of gassing his people.

Anyone who denies that the Bush administration did not spread phony rumors and innuendos about Saddam acquiring Nuclear weapons is being disingenuous to say the least.

While Administration Talks Air Stikes, Assad Prepares

While the United States government debates whether to order military strikes against the Syrian government in the wake of chemical weapons attacks on dissidents, Syrian President Bassar Assad's regime has been using the extra time to move arms and troops away from possible target sites, opposition activists claim.

"All this babbling in the newspapers and the media is just giving time for the regime," Abu Hussein, a rebel coordinator in Damascus told The Financial Times.

On Saturday President Barack Obama said that any attack on Syria will be limited in scope and will only come after a debate of the people's representatives in both houses of Congress.

Meanwhile in Syria, elite troops have been moving from their bases to a local school in recent days, a businessman in Damascus said.

"It's not even a secret," he said. "You see them in the night. They light up the school."

Nobama is working hard to thrust the U.S. into a disaster.
After years of a hopscotch on and off mid east foreign policy, all of this media discussion and debate is just allowing Assad time to move things around.......and now, nobama will not know whom he is killing with missle attacks on Syria. Nobama is trying to play fairly with a bunch of lunatics, and it will not turn out well.

Thanks to repubicans demanding to know EVERYTHING our military and intelligence people are doing.

And about getting concurrence from our legislature, they’re on vacation and boner won’t call them back. And even if they did return what makes anyone think they’d do anything other than vote to abolish Obama Care?

That's an interesting comment...

The republicans were busy trying to impeach CLINTON while OSAMA BIN LADIN was planning his attack on the WTC,and....

Over the last several months the T publicans were too busy trying to abolish OBMA CARE while BASHAR Al-ASSAD has been busy gassing his own people....

Am I the only one seeing a pattern here...???

wassup dummy?
Nobama does NOT need concurrence with anyone. He is the commander in chief and could order the strike right now....if he had the balls.
Clinton did it in kosovo, but nobama? is scared.
So, he is doing what he is good at....playing politics.....with peoples lives.

While military action in Syria would be based on a legal argument similar to the one given for Libya, the U.S. this time would have to act without the backing of the United Nations. Chesney said the situation now is more comparable to President Clinton's use of force in Kosovo in 1999

It was a shrewd move on President OBAMAS part to throw the hot potato into Congress's court rather than take unilateral action...

That will force the T publicans to do something for a change and show everyone what they are made off...

If they approve the attack on ASSAD's military resources President OBAMA, the Syrian citizens, America and the world win.

If the T publican Congress says no to the offensive they will temporarily embarrass America for abandoning those in need, and more than likely they will be voted out and President OBAMA still could launch an attack...

Right, and have the congress members do a roll call vote where we know exactly where each one stands. No hiding from their votes.
