So, have the American people woke up yet? Are they beginning to realize the constant argument of D versus R is a failed argument?

Because here we go. These psychopaths and sociopaths that are in charge and believe they are a new form of nobility are about to get more innocent people people for their own ambitions.

Change the lettering on the end of the name all you want, fact remains that the policies and directions are always the same.

What did Republicans bring the people? War in the middle East, enormous amount of debt, and a dead economy.

What have Democrats brought us? War in the Middle east, enormous amounts of debt to banks, and a dead economy.

One of the D's biggest hypocrisies is all the fake outrage when Bush did it but when their own side does it, not outrage, not even silence, but compliance.

If all you see is in Blue & Red then you are one of the sheep.

Unfortunately the sheeple don't care. They just want someone to be for and someone to be against. It takes their minds off the fact there is nothing they can really do about anything.

What's truly ridiculous is the repeated claims that this time will be different with "no boots on the ground".

And just what do they think will happen when Iran closes the Strait of Hormuz or starts lobbing missiles at Israel, or when terrorists attacking US bases in the region in response to our "limited strike"?

I voted for Obama, but I oppose this strike 100%, just as I opposed attacking Iraq.

If we do ANYTHING, then it should be a couple of nukes on Damascus & Tehran and be done with it once and for all.

Ooops, we hit the wrong button......

We will sit this one out, they don't have the votes and in my view Obama is looking for a way out.
Americans are informed on this issue and are opposed to any involvement, excepting a few nitwits.

Sooner or later we will end up in fighting these people, but this is not our time.

Lost cause.

You are correct. I am deep red, but am adamantly opposed to military intervention in this situation for the following reasons.

The Geneva Protocol is a really short treaty that everyone should read. The Geneva Protocol binds only the signatory nations, meaning that those countries not part of the treaty are not bound by it and are free to use chemical weapons. There is no mention of what happens to either non-signatories or signatory nations if they use chemical weapons.

From those facts, it flows that use of chemical weapons by one signatory against any other country clearly would be an act of war and the agressor nation could then be engaged militarily. It also flows that if a non-signatory nation (Syria) uses chemical weapons within its own borders, regardless of the target--unless a foreign embassy--no country or group of countries has any authority under the Geneva Protocol or otherwise to take any military action.

In short, any military attack on the Syrian government for the singular fact that it delivered a chemical weapon within their borders is irreconcilable with the Geneva Protocol or any international law.

I detest that it has happened, but madmen eventually pay the price for their deeds, e.g., Hussein, Ghadaffi, etc., but we have no right to attack Syria. Let Øbama argue moral authority all he wants and gather the Geneva Protocol signatory nations to join him in a coalition in the U.N.(which I despise, but that's for another topic), or, as Øbama has shown himself wont to do, he should "stand down".

YUP!
And the chemical weapons ban was not signd by Syria. Also, the Damnocrats ought to read it since they cite it. It applies only to weapons within their jurisdiction. Obama over-stepped in Libya. He's taken a flying leap on this one. Wonder how Oslo feels now about their Peace Prize laureate.

Why is the media; right, left, center, not asking the question:'what is the corporate interest in Syria?" Energy and Banking.

Also it is a no-brainer that those in Congress who support attacking Syria get 80% plus of their donations from military complex industry and the Haliburtons of the world.

The situation right this moment is desperate in Syria for Exxon/Mobil, BP, Total, and Germany with Assad right at the point of kicking them out and retaining all oil for Syria.

We've had similar human rights violations in countries that have negligible natural resources and we didn't go to their aid.

Obama must take a stand for the American people over corporate America even if it means corporate money removing Democrats from office and installing the warmongers they want who will go to war to protect their interest in foreign countries.

Congress, Republican and Democrat, must tell the truth of what this push to attack Syria is really all about.

What do marginal chickens have to do with starting a war with Syria? Are you saying Reid is a chicken? Would this picked on girl consider working with Reid at the Chicken Ranch in Nevada?
