"real dumb"
All those WMD's you said did not exist? assad is currently making use of them. If you had a brain you would realize "Galt" does not and did not support Bush's action in Iraq. That action would be as meaningless as the bombing of Syria, lots of dead innocents.
If any action was going to be taken in Syria it should have been a couple of weeks ago, not a few weeks from now. Cut the rhetoric and go in and kick some butt. Institute a no fly zone use a blockade.
All understand your desire, assad is over thrown and the muslim terrorists take over. You love those who demean women and murder kids.

Okay, Dave

If some country launched a few hundred missiles at us-would that be considered war?

Let's just pretend Assad's reign of terror after using WMDs against his own people somehow comes to an end. And let's just pretend mass graves of thousands of men, women and children are then uncovered in Syria.

Shouldn't the same liberals who support using military force in Syria for humanitarian reasons have supported using military force in Iraq for the same reasons?

Hmmmm,

Apparently Senate leadership has decided Syria resolution doesn't meet criteria for expedited procedures requested by WPA, hence 60-vote threshold.

Yesterday, Kerry was doing it really isn't a war routine. When done, he asked the general if he had any comments. The general said "No".
He wasn't going to Lie- a military strike is war.
Rand Paul did an excellent job reminding Kerry of the constitutionality of Congress, not the Executive Branch, making the call for military force. Kerry was extremely determined to keep saying "it's the president's decision".

When Kerry kept denying it was a war, Paul said, "Tell that to the men launching the missiles."

The point is, had McCain been elected president first time around the US would be at war with half a dozen countries by now. Then if Romney had been elected all he would have done is move his money & a good deal of your own money into his Swiss bank account. So to rant on about Obama on Syria is hypocritical to say the lest. If he moves he will do it in best possible way, remember now McCain wants to remove Assad as well. Is anyone accusing him of being an Al Queda's best friend ?

Oh, how I long for the days when liberals wailed that "the rest of the world" hated America, rather than now, when the rest of the world laughs at us.

With the vast majority of Americans opposing a strike against Syria, President Obama has requested that Congress vote on his powers as commander in chief under the Constitution. The president doesn't need congressional approval to shoot a few missiles into Syria, nor -- amazingly -- has he said he'll abide by such a vote, anyway.

Why is Congress even having a vote? This is nothing but a fig leaf to cover Obama's own idiotic "red line" ultimatum to President Bashar al-Assad of Syria on chemical weapons. The Nobel Peace Prize winner needs to get Congress on the record so that whatever happens, the media can blame Republicans.

No Republican who thinks seriously about America's national security interests -- by which I mean to exclude John McCain and Lindsey Graham -- can support Obama's "plan" to shoot blindly into this hornet's nest.

It would be completely different if we knew with absolute certainty that Assad was responsible for chemical attacks on his own people.(I'm still waiting to see if it was a Syrian upset about a YouTube video.)

It would be different if instead of killing a few hundred civilians, Assad had killed 5,000 civilians with poison gas in a single day, as well as tens of thousands more with chemical weapons in the past few decades.

It would be different if Assad were known to torture his own people, administer summary executions, rapes, burnings and electric shocks, often in front of the victim's wife or children.

It would be different if Assad had acted aggressively toward the United States itself, perhaps attempting to assassinate a former U.S. president or giving shelter to terrorists who had struck within the U.S.-- someone like Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood terrorist.

It would be different if Assad were stirring up trouble in the entire Middle East by, for example, paying bounties to the families of suicide bombers in other countries.

It would also be different if we could be sure that intervention in Syria would not lead to a multi-nation conflagration.

It would be different if we knew that any action against Syria would not put al-Qaida or the Muslim Brotherhood in power, but rather would result in a functioning, peaceful democracy.

And it would be different if an attack on Syria would so terrify other dictators in the region that they would instantly give up their WMDs -- say, Iran abandoning its nuclear program.

If all of that were true, this would be a military intervention worth supporting!

All of that was true about Iraq, but the Democrats hysterically opposed that war. They opposed it even after all this was known to be true -- indeed, especially after it was known to be true! The loudest opponent was Barack Obama.

President Saddam Hussein of Iraq had attempted to assassinate former president George H.W. Bush. He gave shelter to Abdul Rahman Yasin, a conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He paid bounties to the families of suicide bombers in Israel.

Why?
Fools like you post racial slurs here eery GD day. Why is that Galt. Is it because your racism is so inbred into your being that you can't even recognize it as such?
You know damn well why you posted it.
You can squirm & dance but we both know the truth.
If you have a point to make, make it without the slurs.
