Had Saddam lived up to is obligations from the First Gulf War, he would still be alive and in charge of Iraq! NOW we are ALLOWING the same thing in Syria, history repeating itself?? I am not big on regime change in Syria, I do believe we have national security issues their with AQ and WMD's BUT when a sitting president said it, it should NOT be an empty threat ,like his suit!

Who cares? If Assad wants to gas the pro Al Quieda rebels it is none of Obama's business. He should butt out of Syria's internal affairs and stop supporting antiwestern terrorists.

The terrorists are worse than Assad. As with Carter supporting the mujahedeen in Afghanistan against the Soviets Obama's support for these pro Al Quieda rebels will only lead to more dead Americans... on American soil just like on 9/11.

of course you don't, you were busy parroting other hyperpartisan crap you didn't understand, weren't you?

That is what Carter and Reagan said about the mujahedeen in Afghanistan. They were just like America's founding fathers. THe naive believed it. Our support for the terrorists fighting the Soviets there led directly to 9/11.

We should butt out of the Moslem world's internal civil wars. Barack Obama is just another pasty looking Dick Cheney clone manufacturing evidence of WMD use as a pretext to invasion. Is opposing the Democratic Republicans and their world policeman type imperialism now seen as hyperpartisan?

You should at least attempt to learn the very basics about what you are talking about. there were many tribal factions in Afghanistan that we helped. when the soviets left, the US also up and took off, leaving the tribal factions left to fight over control of the country that had been at war for most of their lives. the Saudis did not leave, they continued to keep funding and arming the factions supportive of their, and in particular, Usama bin Laden's views.

see what it looks like when you actually know what you are talking about?
