I think that is what Obama really wants. The only way to actually accomplish that is to pretend otherwise, knowing that whatever he wants, republikans will vote against it.. Obama has got them two ways. Republikans love war, but their hate for Obama is stronger than their love of war. They don't get their war and Obama gets what he really wanted to start with. Here is an old term: Snookered. That's what Obama has done to the pubs.

I agree the U.S. needs to stay out of Syria.

The rest of your reasoning is very convoluted. Let me get this straight. Obama is just pulling a big fake out about wanting to send missiles to Syria to get the Republicans to vote against and he comes out smelling like a rose?

How long did it take for you to come up with such insane reasoning? Not only does Obama appear weak now he appears to be a liar, per your theory.

Based off your theory, should the public ever believe a president that will play games with something as serious as starting a war. Yes, war. Go back and read the vote today that includes troops on the ground.

Is that a big fake out to get the Republicans to vote? Is sure as hell worked on Nancy Pukelosi and you don't get any more Democrat than her.

The dems have to pretend they support war, otherwise the pubs will not vote against it. Pubs hate Pelosi more than they hate Obama. Obama. If she votes for it, you know the pubs will vote against. I really hope it doesn't happen. Borrowing money from China to attack one of China and Russia's trading partners? I will go against Obama on this one because I know he really doesn't want war. Otherwise, he would have just done it.

Obama doesn't give a flip about the Syrians, but he is president and cannot be saying that. I don't care a damn about the Syrians, but I can say that because everyone already knows that I am not PC. If Obama had made the strike, the pubs would have gone crazy with the blame game just like they had been going crazy about him doing nothing. NOTHING is exactly the right move . But pubs care nothing about right and wrong, all they care about is slamming anything Obama. They are afflicted with RODS (republican Obama dementia syndrome).Obama knows that and is using that fact.
This way, we do not have to buy the replacement Tomahawks , we avoid BORROWING another trillion dollars at least and republikans can now only blame themselves for whatever happens.
Heck, Obama could even get a Nobel Prize for this one also. He deserves it if it works.

<quoted text>Your full of crap, Congress wouldn't even be talking about this if it weren't for Obama. He's just a chicken because he wants to blame someone else when this, and it will, blow up in his face. Even some Democrats see disaster "Rep. Rick Nolan, D-Minn., reflected a view shared by at least some of his colleagues: "I am vehemently opposed to a military strike that would clearly be an act of war against Syria, especially under such tragic yet confusing circumstances as to who is responsible for the use of chemical weapons." "In a conference call Monday with House Democrats, several members of Obama's own party challenged the administration's assertions." This isn't a game calling for a "double reverse" anything. This where people die and this President should have said something a long time age, before 100,000 people died if he cared so much.

Are you really saying, that the President of the United States, is "PRETENDING" about going to war??? Are you insane? You really think he is doing this to get one up on Republicans? If that is the case, YOU need a rubber room to play in and he needs to be impeached. The cost of war is more than money and scoring "reelection" points. What do you think he will do if his "snookered" job doesn't work? Nuts, just nuts.

Wasn't he asked yesterday, about giving back his "Peace Prize" in Sweden? He's calling for war so they want it back. What if it doesn't work? Typical Democrat. Anything to get reelected. Did you see Kerry dodge the questions, he looked as bad as Hillery.

Everyone seems to think that Obama drew the red line on chemical weapons use, actually it was drawn a century ago by the UN. IMO, a vote and a decision should wait until a full report is given by the UN inspectors. As bad as I would like to see Bashar ASSad taken out, I too think that a strike at this time is a bad idea. We can't just continue playing sheriff around the world. We are damned if we do and damned if we don't. If we strike without the support of the UN, this could mean world war three. If we do nothing, we look like cowards and may have to fight them on our own soil. These people have been fighting each other for one reason or the other since the beginning of time. No amount of US dollars, boots on the ground or air strikes is going to stop them. If we do strike them, then what? Do we say we are sorry by borrowing money to rebuild what we just tore all to hell?

People may have gotten confused when Obama opened his mouth and said"The use of chemical weapons would be crossing a red line". They probably then thought, that those words meant"the use of chemical weapons would be crossing a red line." What idiots.

"In resolution 1540 (2004), the Security Council decided that all States shall refrain from providing any form of support to non-State actors that attempt to develop, acquire, manufacture, possess, transport, transfer or use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons and their means of delivery, in particular for terrorist purposes. The resolution requires all States to adopt and enforce appropriate laws to this effect as well as other effective measures to prevent the proliferation of these weapons and their means of delivery to non-State actors.

The UN Office for Disarmament Affairs provides support for activities of the Committee established pursuant to resolution 1540 (2004), which is tasked to report to the Security Council on the implementation of the resolution. Currently, UNODA activities are focussing on the following key areas:

Facilitation of national implementation activities including through regionally coordinated approaches
Cooperation between international, regional and sub-regional organizations
Effective partnerships with civil society and the private sector" Now my question is should Syria be receiving ANY thing from the US. Seems the US picks and chooses the UN rules at will.

"With backing by Beijing and Moscow unlikely at the U.N. Security Council, where both have veto powers, Obama is seeking the approval of the U.S. Congress." Things not going well in Russia. Looks like Congress will be more important than thought. China said "Military action would have a negative impact on the global economy, especially on the oil price - it will cause a hike in the oil price," Chinese Vice Finance Minister Zhu Guangyao told a briefing." "European Union leaders, usually strong allies of the United States, described the August 21 attack near Damascus, which killed an estimated 1,400 people, as "abhorrent" but added: "There is no military solution to the Syrian conflict."

What I am saying is that republikans have been playing political games with the Syria "war" thing. They blame Obama for doing nothing and advocate war. When Obama agrees with them and says he favors war, they scatter in the opposite direction and now oppose what they were advocating. I might point out that Obama cannot be re elected. That is why the republican campaign against Obama is so stupid. Instead of running against Obama, they should be putting together a campaign for a viable republican candidate. I am all to well aware of the cost of war. That is why I oppose attacking countries like Afghanistan , Iraq, Syria just so arms manufacturers can make money. I could care less what happens in those countries. I do not believe in silly assed "message sending" or meddling in the affairs of others. We should mind our own business, stay out of unnecessary conflicts and save our men, ammunition, equipment and strength to protect the USA. Only when we are attacked should we respond and then do it suddenly, unexpectedly, mercilessly and with overwhelming overkill force against the enemy's men, women, children, pets and even farm animals..

Only those that have NEVER been to war seem to advocate war. I have never understood that. It is almost always those that never even served that chant loudest for military action. So I say to Rush LimpBalls and Sean "I know everything" Hannity.....where the hell have you been. I did not see you in Saudi in 91 or Kosovo in 99. I did not see you in Iraq or Afghan in the last 13 years.....and yes I was there at all of the above...waiting for you join me...where were you? Oh thats I right...you were busy fighting for your own self serving interests.

I respect our military 100% and your service.

What bothers me most about your post is that you're angry with people disagreeing with you because you made the CHOICE to join the military.

There was no mandatory draft and you didn't have to enlist. You haven't cornered the market on having an opinion about the military because you enlisted. The military paid, you, provided housing, and gave you benefits. All paid for by taxpayers.

Why were you waiting for others to join you, didn't you make this decision independently? The whole country can't join the military in order to have an opinion about going to war.

I don't agree with attacking Syria and I don't have a problem with people that do. You need to get to that place.
