I never said saddam didn't do a bad job at fighting off muslim opponents. Its proven that Iraqi military officers where bought off to stand down or fight ineffectively when he was ousted. You don't think the administration ( THE CURRENT ONE) knew this would happen if we decreased our military presence? Syria and Yemen, two bordering countries, were part of the military plan of the previous administration and a lot of president obamas appointments are from conservative cabinets. http://www.city-data.com/forum/politics-other...

Then you know it's the Bush Doctrine that he's following. Blame it on the Republicans.

why would I blame republicans for obamas appointments? They have no say whatsoever in who he picks. Instead of blaming anybody , I just have a question. Where's the change we were hoping for?

It's disturbing that we have lost our way so much and people are so complacent to elect someone like him. Black, white, yellow ... we deserve better than this guy. Bush (another C student like Barry) sucked, no question, but he was also dealt a bad hand and you have to at least give him credit for making the right decisions in 2007.

Like I said before, the trouble with these guys is that we went from a nation of doers (farmers, workers, self employed), to a nation of cubicle workers. Doers have enough common sense to make good decisions because their livelihood depends on it. Cubicle workers depend on someone else to survive and neither have nor are able to develop common sense or survival instincts.

Love or hate Bush, at least he didn't get in the way of people making a living. Your affirmative action clown has measurably hampered the ability of the middle class to prosper and make a good living.

This health care debacle is just starting to rear its ugly head and, for a change, Republicans did the smart thing by having nothing to do with it. They didn't vote for it, nor are they going to help the Dumbocrats tweak it. This is all going to be on them.

A stupid question by a stupid person. Your still blaming Bush for WWII, the Korean and Vietnam war. Add the Depression, Titanic and every other tragedy.

I know one thing for sure, if a Republican was President for the past 5 years we wouldn't have 9M fewer people working and doubled the debt. Oil would be cheaper and we would have less turmoil in the middle east.

We wouldn't have had Benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRS scandals, Obamacare that no one wants and young people killing others because they have no hope.

That is true, Canada has had a Conservative government since 2006, and they are beating us in most economic indicators.

Watch Obama make the next big decision on Syria. Will he? Or will he impose sanctions?

We're still waiting for him to make other big decisions:

Keystone pipeline - thousands of jobs. Meanwhile gas is still much higher than when he took office.

Jobs- 9M fewer working now than 5 years ago.

Obamacare- exemptions for supporters, failed implementation and that info is from his own party

Black on black crime - Mostly gang/drug related resulting from the govt replacing the father.

Like most other things Oblamo is working on...we shouldn't hold a lot of hope.

Keystone pipeline is a short term solution to a long term problem according to Forbes and most economist.

9 million working less than 5 years ago?
Reports Hannity and the right wing nutjobs. Take it with a grain of salt.

Black on black crime. LOL! Irrelevant racist chatter. White crime is pretty steady. Concern yourself with that.

Liberal NBC?

NBC poll: Nearly 80 percent want congressional approval on Syria
By Mark Murray, Senior Political Editor, NBC News

Nearly 80 percent of Americans believe President Barack Obama should receive congressional approval before using force in Syria, but the nation is divided over the scope of any potential strike, a new NBC News poll shows.

Obama’s job approval at 44 percent
The NBC poll also shows that President Obama’s overall job-approval rating has dropped one point since last month to 44 percent, which is tied for his lowest mark in past NBC News/Wall Street Journal surveys.

He gets even lower marks on foreign policy: Just 41 percent approve of his handling of the issue – an all-time low.

And only 35 percent approve of his handling of the situation in Syria.

The NBC poll was conducted Aug. 28-29 of 700 adults (including 210 cell phone-only respondents), and it has a margin of plus-minus 3.7 percentage points.

It looks like Obama has decided to attack Syria.

Is it a mistake?

I could ask the Republicans what they would do. There isn't one single Republican on here that can give you a reply what they would do? Don't expect an answer.

Not so fat, wide rider. No boots on the ground was the statement today, after Kerry made his address. Indecisive?

My thinking: quick aerial strikes. We don't have a lot of international support, there's that little Russia problem, and hey... we're reducing forces across all of the services--Navy, Air Force, Marines. Go figure. We are trying right now to rebalance our forces in the Pacific, because hey... if Egypt erupts, we might not have access to the Suez Canal if we need to get in there and we have to deal with North Korea. Did ya consider that? I don't like Obama much, but hey, this whole Syria thing is a bit of a pickle, there's reason for this situation dufus. I hope we can avoid getting involved there... seriously, this information is all out there if ya read.

Do you read?

I saw Egypt erupt twice, where have you been?

All North Korea wants to do is sell missals, and small arms. And run their mouth.

The country is tired of the wars Bush got America into. Other countries have gotten weary of being lied too, to get them into a war.

I read every day.

Egypt and North Korea are vital to our interests. Does the Korean war ring a bell to you? Do you even know what's going on besides selling MISSILES and small arms? It's a little thing with having tested long-range missles--who knows where they want to aim? Ya think WMDs could be a problem over there? Did you know that North Korea and Syria have an alliance? Syria is a long-time customer for North Korea's missile parts...

The things that make us go hmmmmm.....

Egypt is a dicy situation. Do we cut Egypt's foreign aid as well? Ever hear of a guy named Abdel Fatah al-Sissi? I didn't think so. Do google the dude. I'll give you a start: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldview... And here's a hint--the guy was trained and educated here in the US. This is how fragile our relationships are with Egypt and the fact remains we need to be on good terms with the Egyptians.

How in the world does any of this have to do with "wars Bush got us into?" Hell, if Obama goes into Syria without UN sanction, he's doing the same thing Bush did LOL....

Here's some more insight for you, regarding our relationships over there:

Figure it out some day will ya wide rider? Sometimes, we really can't blame one guy over the other and think we're always right.... Happy reading. Don't let your eyeballs bleed.
