I'll try this again. What was the Vietnam conflict about ? Fighting Communism ? Who was the enemy ?

If it was all about the children, then where were the liberals when we went into Iraq. Saddam gassed thousands of Kurdish men, women AND children. Did horrible things to them. It was the kind of gas where they didn't just go quietly to sleep like in Syria but became disfigured, blistered and agonized in pain for days before dying.

If Bush were contemplating this move to attack Syria all you liberals would be having a convulsive conniption fit over it.

But yet in forum after forum on the matter, your silence is deafening. And some of you even make excuses as to why you agree with your messiah to attack.

Hypocrites.

Just as wrong as it was for Bush to go into Iraq, it's just as wrong for the bozo in the white house to attack Syria.

Of course, the assumption in that was one side was willing to behave in a decent and civilized manner.
When it's two or three factions that are fighting for the chance to impose their own brand of sadistic torture on the people, I don't think it's worth the bother to help any of them.
So you don't think it was the current regime?

Who else? The rebels? Why would they target
their own ppl instead of their enemy?
To lure the U.S. into action?

Serious questions. I wasn't being smart ass.
Was just wanting to hear your take on this.

I don't know where the liberals were but I can tell
you where this Independent was. I was yelling my head off.

I was pissed b/c the U.S. didn't go in to save the ppl
but Did go in to protect their intrests in oil.

I'm not going to claim I have EITHER side of the Syria thing figured out. I can only observe the sole difference between them seems to be who currently is considered 'in power'. Both sides appear equally uncivilized and hell-bent on annihilating the other.

So I see no point in helping one side gain victory over the other.

Cool....we're on the same page w/that. I can't
figure out what the f@ck is going on either.

But I do know one thing. The ppl who died in
those attacks were unarmed. Unprepared as well.

What's a future president sound like when addressing the country?
Sarah Palin

LET ALLAH SORT IT OUT

“So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?”- Sarah Palin

* President Obama wants America involved in Syria’s civil war pitting the antagonistic Assad regime against equally antagonistic Al Qaeda affiliated rebels. But he’s not quite sure which side is doing what, what the ultimate end game is, or even whose side we should be on. Haven’t we learned? WAGs don’t work in war.

* We didn’t intervene when over 100,000 Syrians were tragically slaughtered by various means, but we’ll now intervene to avenge the tragic deaths of over 1,000 Syrians killed by chemical weapons, though according to the White House we’re not actually planning to take out the chemical weapons because doing so would require “too much of a commitment.”

* President Obama wants to do what, exactly? Punish evil acts in the form of a telegraphed air strike on Syria to serve as a deterrent? If our invasion of Iraq wasn’t enough of a deterrent to stop evil men from using chemical weapons on their own people, why do we think this will be?

* The world sympathizes with the plight of civilians tragically caught in the crossfire of this internal conflict. But President Obama’s advertised war plan (which has given Assad enough of a heads-up that he’s reportedly already placing human shields at targeted sites) isn’t about protecting civilians, and it’s not been explained how lobbing U.S. missiles at Syria will help Syrian civilians. Do we really think our actions help either side or stop them from hurting more civilians?

* We have no clear mission in Syria. There’s no explanation of what vital American interests are at stake there today amidst yet another centuries-old internal struggle between violent radical Islamists and a murderous dictatorial regime, and we have no business getting involved anywhere without one. And where’s the legal consent of the people’s representatives? Our allies in Britain have already spoken. They just said no. The American people overwhelmingly agree, and the wisdom of the people must be heeded.

* Our Nobel Peace Prize winning President needs to seek Congressional approval before taking us to war. It’s nonsense to argue that,“Well, Bush did it.” Bull. President Bush received support from both Congress and a coalition of our allies for “his wars,” ironically the same wars Obama says he vehemently opposed because of lack of proof of America’s vital interests being at stake.

* Bottom line is that this is about President Obama saving political face because of his “red line” promise regarding chemical weapons.

* As I said before, if we are dangerously uncertain of the outcome and are led into war by a Commander-in-chief who can’t recognize that this conflict is pitting Islamic extremists against an authoritarian regime with both sides shouting “Allah Akbar” at each other, then let Allah sort it out.

When you are in the war business, you need wars to keep your business going. It's Business 101.
