This whole situation is just wrong. I can say we have no business in Syrian affairs. If intervention is required either NATO or the Arab League should commit military personnel to keep the peace.The US has no vested interest in this civil war as both sides are our enemies even though these political figures say we have vetted some rebels. I can assure everyone, having prior experience with that region, it is not as cut and dry as these political figures make it out to be. It is horrible what is going on but we are not the worlds police. I have sent my feelings and views on this conflict to both Sen. Claire McCaskill and Rep. Jason Smith and encourage all to do so as well.

The country is spelled "Syria". Instead of being irritated with you, I should just remind myself that this is West Plains. Our own government has been aiding the rebel forces which are really "Al-Qaeda" forces. This gas attack was most likely instigated by the rebel forces and "not" Assad. This is just an excuse for Obama to help his Muslim comrades by falsely holding Assad accountable.

That region of the world is so unstable that whatever they do, they better do it very carefully. Sometimes brutal dictators are mentally unstable enough that they actually wish to provoke more powerful countries to get involved, just to make themselves feel more important than they really are. Other times an oppressed minority such as the rebels may inflict harm on themselves to make it look like the regime did it, in order to gain sympathy and support from other nations. That's why it's important to assume nothing, and get the facts straight before dropping weapons on a foreign country. If Assad has in fact gassed innocent children in his own country, that is a heinous act and should be treated as such by the other nations of the world, but if the USA is not threatened by these actions, it ought to be very careful about trying to police what goes on in other nations. If on the other hand, there is a wide consensus that Assad has undoubtedly violated the "rules of war" it makes sense for the USA to join with everybody else in condemning such horrible actions, and all work together to come up with an appropriate response. Unfortunately we as a nation lost some credibility when the Bush administration declared war on Iraq based on weapons of mass destruction that did not exist. That is why other nations do not automatically assume that we have our facts straight.

Before making ignorant comments, you should first understand international relations. Under the United Nations, Syria has went against an international norm. International norms anywhere from genocide and weapons of mass destruction used to kill their own people. Educated yourselves!

Screw the U.N.! You sound like someone who wants to be governed by outside forces. I bet you just love Agenda 21 don't you??? I bet you are so warped that you snuggle up each night before falling asleep with your Barack Hussein Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and John Kerry dolls. I bet you kiss each on the butt and make lovey dovey sounds while you're doing it before falling into a deep freakish liberal one world government dream. I can't say this strongly enough...THE U.S.A. IS RUN BY CORRUPT GLOBALISTS WHO USE WAR FOR FUN AND PROFIT AT THE EXPENSE OF EVERYONE ELSE! Sometimes educating the ignorant is like educating a "rock". A liberal's brain is hardwired for ignorance and self-destruction no matter what you do.

Well here is some education for you. If "Syria has went against the international norm" why hasn't NATO, aka The United Nations, stepped in? Why hasn't the Arab League? By us going at it alone we are committing a war crime! Since you are so educated in foreign affairs you will understand the complexity of this issue.
How many Americans did Assad attack? Zero. Do we have a vested interest in attacking them? No. We have absolutely no justification for starting a war with Syria.

Considering the rebels are made up of elements of Al Qaeda I would think bombing Assad would essentially put more chemical weapons in their hands. Who is for sure that Assad actually used chemical agents on his own people? I, for one, am not so confident in our all informing government on this matter. Al Qaeda kills innocent people every day and this sort of attack seems right up their alley. This matter needs to be left alone for now. Also Assad has had chemical weapons for awhile and has he once tried to use them on us? You my friend are misinformed.
Benghazi should have undoubtedly been handled differently. In this instance we were attacked and American lives were lost. All hell should have broke loose in my opinion.

Also Russia makes too much money selling Syria weapons to actually go with anything we do. Putin, "the Russian dude", will never go along witwith anything Obama does. China is the same. Obama has screwed up. He needs to accelt it and let this issue be handled by the Arab league and NATO. So why ddoesn't the Arab League actually send their military first? They want American, the Infidels, blood spilled.

I think this war will be a waste of time and money for our country and our soldiers will die in vain fighting another petty war we have no business in. It seems that even President Obama has not learned anything from History. The Korean War was a great example of why we didn't get involved in civil wars to begin with. America is the reason why there's a South Korea and we never finished that war because we got tired of it. We were dumb to think North Korea and South Korea would sign a peace treaty without a war and after all Russia and China helped the North. A dumb war and Obama is a warmonger. He does not care if he pulls us into World War 3. Countries have warned us not to get involved. But why complain about it when I can just tell you that a lot of you voted for this idiot to lead our country into more trouble. Let the allies deal with it later. They never do anything anyway, why does America feel it needs to go start more un needed trouble and attention. If there is a World War 3, its because America started one and we're no better than Nazi Germany is. We've become a fascist country. The very thing we fought against. We might as well have let the Germans win.
