Until it can be determined who the "Good Guys" and "Bad Guys" are, the bombing of Syria cannot happen.

and if we did push hard enough to damage Assad...Who comes next?
And how will all this affect Lebanon.
Can we keep Israel...calm... if chaos is at its door?

If your Rep . or Senator is voting or speaking with out a lot of deep thought, remember in Nov.

Nobody asked but I'll chime in anyway. Oh if any attractive women want to know more about my "package" (heh heh) send me a private message. So doesn't the whole country of Syria hate Americans and America? I'm talking about EVERYONE in the country hating us. Can't we just send them a sympathy card? We're bankrupt and our idiot amateur community organizer wants to continue to police the world while downgrading our military to the point of making it dysfunctional? Huh? Out stupid electorate put the fool in office. I guess we get what we vote for?

If you read my second post you heard me say that if your vote is easy. If your reasoning behind it is just a reflex. Either support the President no matter. Or ...perhaps in your case say no to Obama no matter what it is he asks for.... then you don't belong making decisions of any kind...let alone those that kill.
The fact that the President asked and is getting resistance is a positive.
The only reason i have heard to vote yes that holds water is that the President is responsible for the execution of foreign policy and should be given maximum latitude.
I would be inclined to vote No unless Obama can show a plan that will have an impact. There would be nothing worse than a show of meaningless force.

The problem with the affirmative action President is that there is no special tutors or more qualified people to pick up the slack and do a job he is obviously not qualified for , other then posturing and pretending like he is capable to the work. But that doesn't matter, the Kosher Ass Kissing Congress and AIPAC will see that the job gets done.

The US should stay out of Syria. Let them kill each other. It will keep them occupied and will be less of them to kill infidels in the future.
Screw 'em.
