If the brits say no then it's no for us also.

If we go without the brits we will be forever criticized.

Congress will never authorize use of force in Syria and I hope Obama does not order it as it will be a deadly mistake for a lot of people...

And under the war Powers Act it would be Illegal and an Impeachable offense ...

I'm just afraid he has opened his mouth so much with threats that he will do it anyway just to show people he would back up his idiotic threats...

With the evidence starting to pile up, that Obama's support of every radical Islamist element in the region included the intentional arming of radical terrorists in Syria with chemical weapons, it's no wonder Britain is starting to wake up to Obama's perfidy. Obama's use of the Leftists is starting to fail also. The Progressive mind will simply not support a President alarmingly benefiting radical Islam and increasing racial tensions at home. Even the crazy Progressive can't embrace the cynicism allowing the gassing of children.

If Obama goes to war alone, he must be impeached. There is no other way to handle that kind of rejection of our Constitution. Biden isn't much but he respects our laws.

Considering the issue further, it's quite possible the crazy Progressive mind would indeed embrace Obama's cynicism in gassing children, because he and they are on common ground in killing 57 Million babies here for convenience and phun. Sick puppies from top to bottom.

Without the British this cause is lost.
And what do you gain by getting involved, more strife.

If he goes ahead with this he will be forever condemned and America will be denounced around the world.

The Turks are hated because of the old ottoman empire and the French are the French. What kind if coalition would that be.

We will soon see who Obama really is.

Bush has damaged this nation in so many way, and beyond repair. The world will not trust real evidence after Bush and Cheney falsified it to get the war they so desperately wanted… and in the meantime people will suffer and die all because of Bush.

You're an idiot. Oh wait, you're the one that was saying the last thing white people want is a racial war, right? And I think you said we wouldn't be able to handle it. Wasn't that you? BTW, no one has done more harm to this country than Obobblehead! Without a doubt, he is the worst President in U.S. history! Period.

Can you imagine a coalition of western Countries turning President Bush down when he asked to go into Iraq? This President will be lucky if the Muslim countries join him, he has no friends.

Correct! It's the difference between a world leader like Bush and an incompetent phony. I read that they have said no already.
