To Obama and members of Congress:

If you want to go to war in Syria, then lead the charge. Go fight the fight. Get your gun and supplies and go over there yourself and lead it.

What? Not willing to do that? Then send "YOUR" family, "YOUR" kids, "YOUR" money. But, leave the rest of us out of your psycho trip.

Now what is Syria really about? The true reason for our involvement in supply guns to the Al Nusra front?

Well that is simple actually. About 6 years ago, Saudi Arabia and Qatar went ot Assad to get the use of land in Syria for these 2 countries to build a natural gas pipeline from Saudi, through Syria and Turkey to supply natural gas into the EU.

Assad told them to get the F out.

Saudi and Qatar are the ones funneling the Al Nusra Front into Syria to remove Assad. It is Saudi and Qatar that are pushing the US for an invasion.

This is another perfect example of what President Washington warned us about. No foreign entanglements.

Getting involved in Syria to topple Assad won't be a
$3 trillion cakewalk like Iraq to topple Saddam or
a cheap publicity stunt like the Grenada invasion.
The Russians are in this up to their ears and their
supply line are much shorter.

Maybe we should start supplying the the anti-Russian
protesters in Ukraine with weapons and give Putin
something to think about. Our own proxy war against the
Russkies.

I think a phone call to Putin saying not to worry, no matter what your port is yours and the Russians will agree, OFF the record, kinda like an abstention.

Yep, after all Obama has a billion and a half rounds of ammunition. They shouldn't run out. Obama must fight though like he makes our soldiers fight, by letting the enemy shoot first.

Its not our civil war.
-
Its not on our borders
-
Its not encroaching on our land.
-
Its not threatening our people.
-
When will we learn this crap is not our business? Arabs have been fighting each other for thousands of years. Why do we think that us stepping in will have any effect other than wasting more lives and more resources? Let them kill each other over their fancy sandbox.
