Actually it does make sense.

Seriously?

This makes more sense - Assad is not in control of his own government and military forces.

Which is not to say that someone else is.

This makes more sense too - a rebel faction used the situation to kill some enemies and their families and easily pass off blame on the government.

Your scenario, that Assad ordered the gassing the day before the visit to appease internal factions?

No.

Obama is now going to reap the repercussions of weakening our nation when he first took office.....since then, even the smallest of countries do not respect us, and they seized on Obama's "Red Line" stance....and are now making him look like the idiot he is.

Now we are ALL in the position that Obama has put the nation in....whatever he does, this will not end well for America.

That is just nonsense.

More nonsense. Get real.

Obama can speak in terms of a red line, change his mind as circumstances unfold, and this country will be as strong as it was before this Syrian fiasco.

Passing on the red line in this case does not bind Obama or the country one iota. Not one. (Despite what Repub talking points say.)

If Obama would not have weakened our country, Syria would NEVER have even considered using chemical weapons, knowing the consequences.

Obama thought he could 'act' tough, throwing out his "Red Line" challenge, and Syria called his bluff.

Now Obama has to try and look like a leader and a man of his word, something he is clearly not.

This is what happens when a populace of sheep elect someone who promises them things he cannot deliver on, because he is clueless.

Again...we will ALL suffer the consequences of Barack Obama being inflicted on us.

If we're going to bomb Syria, why stop there?
I'm sure we can go bomb some other countries and solve the worlds problems.

No I do not, Dave Kos...

Of all people to say that...someone that uses the "N" word...of all the hateful things!



I'm realistic....blind supporters of Barack Obama clearly are not. You voted him in, but cannot acknowledge his ineptitude.

And as I said, now we are ALL going to pay for what YOU, his electorate, inflicted on us.


Barack Obama.."I didn't draw the Red Line.....the world did."

Pathetic.

Don't forget,

All military and industrial pressure exerted on one nation by another has only one goal in mind and that is self interest. It can be economical, strategic or political.

Iraq gassed it's own citizens years before being invaded over upsetting the oil cart.

No one was willing to get killed over the market fluctuations concerning peach brandy from Serbia during the civil war there until Russia started laughing by proxy at America with impunity.

Politicians and what they care about has nothing to do with innocent people being ripped up by bullets.

It's just business, nothing personal.

And a big surprise it will be legally and politically, F.

Moral arguments only come from people who don't stand to make money from war.
