They are Democrats in Republican clothing... Or better Liberals in Conservative clothing and Conservatives dislike them as much as you do... And Bainner too for that matter... And Bush the little was not much better... He was just a better man than the alternative... The horrid Conditions we find ourselves in this world today is due to liberals both democrat and republicans.... The best of what we have today is the direct results of Free Market Conservatives such as Kennedy and Reagen ... It's not party it's ideology...

It is good to see conservatives finally take a stance against war and needless foreign interventionism. Too bad they didn't see thing this way when Bush was in office. But I (a moderate) am glad you have seen the light.
All the evidence points to the terrorist group al-Nusra as the cause of the sarin gas crimes and it is they who should be punished for using it. Just a reminder to everyone that it as al-Nusra agents who were arrested in Turkey on May 30 who were arrested for possessing sarin gas. It was NOT Assad who used it.
Assad's forces were under satellite surveillance by the US. No photos from these satellites have been produced to shows Assad had anything to do with the use of these illegal weapons. If the controlled pro war media such as the Washington Post and tv reports would only report this the vast majority of Americans would condemn any calls for interventionism.
Obama only allows the MSM to print what his speech writers say is already on the teleprompter. There is no concrete proof of an attack with Sarin gas, quite the opposite. The people did not have traces of Sarin on their clothing or bodies.

When a President draws such a red line he should have the qualifications to understand the costs in treasure, blood and respect when that line is crossed.... This President did no know that when he "Stupidly" made that statement because now he is in a no win position for the US... If he does not order the strike we are seen as weak and impotent and our enemies will use it to further their goals and can lead to future more horrible actions.. If he does order the strike it costs us in treasure and if it causes the fight to escalate Blood of our soldiers and the blood of our allies...

As defective as progressives. Are you a Democrat or are you a Progressive? Progressives control most of the Democratic Party now. Even if a good percentage who vote for them are not. Republican voters are trying to rid their party of RINOS/NEO CONS although some will continue to be reelected. Most of their voters are tired of this. Even when they know, the voters when trying to change, get screwed over by the traitors. Relax, in a few mnore years you will be showing your "paperwork' every fifty miles or so to a nice man who will ask fore them. Refuse, and he won't be so nice.

Better you should ask where oh where is Obama.
He drew the red line months ago. Was that just talk or did he have a plan?
Now, his SecState says the line undeniably has been crossed.
Seems to me it's time to put up or shut up.

McCain and Graham just wanted to see if Obama would be foolish enough to take sides in this.

And it worked.
