Obama, and his cohorts can press on, but Americans do not trust them, or believe a word they say. That is why Obama, and Kerry cannot get the go ahead from the people to bomb Syria. He would sooner get permission from the Pope. Obama has zero credibility with the American people. I called my Congressman yesterday and told him if he votes with Boehner for the attack I will work every day from that day forward to find, and elect someone to replace him, and I will. He is a Republican. He should know better.

Obamo isn't going to persuade anyone unless he magically produces the proof that Syria did indeed Gas those people.

Syrians did gas their people, but it was the rebels, not Assad. It as already been proven over seas that the rebels have a plan to make America arm them.

The United States is just going to make things worse like it always has. I know it's a horrible thing that happened in Syria BUT the USA is only going to make things worse like it ALWAYS DOES! I guarantee you that if the US strikes that in the end it will kill far more civilians than the actual gassing did. Not only that but the extensive and overkill bombing the Americans usually do will destroy Syrias infrastructure. And on top of that there will be more War Crimes committed by the United States (Abu Ghraib type situations) that the UN won't press charges on. So far the USA has caused more destruction and war crimes against humanity than WW2 Nazi Germany, yet the USA is so delusional to think that they are actually the good guys when in all reality the USA is a rouge destructive force. All that said I'm technically an American but I am shamed to call myself one. If this Syria turns out to be another US Fiasco then I hope to move out of the US. I mean it's like sending in an arsonist to put out a burning building. Scary! Again it is a terrible thing what happened in Syria but the USA is the last country to actually "Help". I'm sure there is a far better way to handle Syria than sending in the GOON SQUAD!

The biggest difference between Obama and other presidents is this one has a conscience and that holds him back from knee jerk reactions. He does spend more time thinking and asking other countries for advise, which should be a good thing for the American people but they see that as a weakness not a strength. Bush had no conscience and look what happened. There is a lot at stake and not just human lives on both sides, he has to think of economic implications, other country implications, which countries are not joining in and which will get involved with Assad and which won't and then make new lines in the sand and see where the ball falls. I am glad he is thinking long and hard. Our Prime Minister will support Obama no matter what, and if joining was necessary they will be there however at this point I think he believes there is enough military might in the region without drawing more countries in, now if that is not enough then even England would have another snap vote, this crime is not just a minor offense, it does not get any worse against humanity that to kill without any means for the victim to defend themselves and the world must not let this go on, for those that think this is localized give your head a shake and really think about where this can go from here.

Assad can commit genocide if the world stands by with their hands in their pockets and can eliminate all Sunni, Turk and anyone that does not idolize him.

Last week, was arguably the worst of Barack Obama’s presidency. If the wheels are not to come off it altogether, this coming one will need to be among his best – starting on Tuesday night with his address to the nation about Syria.

It is hard to understand how an instinctively cautious president in his fifth year could have manoeuvred himself into such a dismal corner. But his largely self-charted route lends little confidence that he can easily escape it.
