it has a lot to do with Obama and his "fambly" disrespecting our traditions, our political leaders, the Royal Family and Britain in general. did he really think we would run to his orders after that? We have nothing against America, just this administration.

All I can say is thank you UK. You took the team out of Obama's march to war. And yes, you are right: he violated British tradition. I want you to know that Americans are also angry that he violated Britain. We are also angry that he violated Africa. That man has no roots. And he thinks he can shape the world based on his own egotistical and perverted fantasies. I do not see how we will survive 3 more years of his non-sense. I hope UK keeps a watch over him before he accidentally blows up the whole world.

I had to laugh when ,after hearing about the Brits decision not to take any military action again Asad, hoe fast Obama backed down from his former "American WILL take action" to his now ummmmmmmmm i think i should seek permission from congress - he had a big mouth when declaring " this is the red line that must not be crossed OR ELSE!!" now when push comes to shove he crumbles - i think he is hoping that congress does not give him the green light - that way he can deny being weak kneed and indecisive .Any action taken by the USA now will just be like a slap on the hand ,it will change little for the people on the ground in Syria .

Most Americans when polled don't want any action taken - is the American govt no longer 'of the people -for the people -by the people" ?????
Americans go out on the streets and say Enough of war-Enough of sticking your nose in the business of other nations .Don't you have enough problems at home to resolve .

The problem that maniac should not have pushed it this far. He should have taken his "I kilt bin Laden" and "I kilt Qaddafi" and quit before his luck ran out. But he is a reckless gambler. And like all gamblers he has no idea when his luck in over until he bites off more than he can chew. Thank GOD the American people are not that nutty. There were protesters in front of the White House this morning.

I saw photos of them, one had a "9/11 was an inside job" t-shirt.

No one pays attention to that flaky bunch. Someone should 'vet' them. Europe's protesters have more on the ball.

British parliament made the right call,limited military action was not going to change the course in Syria and most members of parliament knew this.
America is against this, all the polls show little enthusiasm for military involvement. And Obama knew this so it's going to congress and this measure will be shot down.

Britain and America are not the worlds policemen, that kind of reasoning will ruin us.

When will people learn the truth -America helps others when it benefits America - there is no such thing as a free lunch - Are you forgetting that in WW2 the USA did not get involved until they were attacked - up until then they were happy to SELL weapons and ships -when the brits ran out of cash did the USA GIVE aid ??? NO thats when the LEND LEASE started - please read your history well -not just the P.C American version .
The USA is just one big Corporate Machine -the Govt are its servants .

USA wanted to strike Syria because they think they're righteous about themself and are only interested in making Syria their new oil base after Iraq refuses to become one any longer, i wonder why didn't hey strike African countries that had fallen into chaos but are soo interested in striking country like Syria, can't they just leave it to the people to decide? nooo because they're so fckn greedy

Let the French do some of the dirty work, get a good taste of what it's like to have the whole world hate you.
Public opinion in France will change drasticly.

The moral crusaders, a lost cause in this world.
