Don’t rush into Syria

August 30, 2013

Terming use of chemical weapons in the Syrian civil war a “red line” that, if crossed, would result in decisive U.S. action was a mistake on President Barack Obama’s part....

No usedto, libs joke about and dismiss valid questions. Speaking for myself, I'm joking about your employment of a 'troll ruse' thinking it will work.

Listyen used... do you live under a rock? Did you read the post I put up about Iraq and how under GWB we had won the freedom for the Iraqi people to be able to direct their own future in the way that they wanted? Did you notice that Obama took that VICTORY that AMERICAN LIVES were spent on and used his almighty power to cut and run? Did you see how the muslin extremists took over the country, filled the vacuum that was left by the hightailing Americans that left them to their demise? Guess what we will have won in Afghanistan after the Obama withdrawal? NOTHING! Toss all those American lives in the drain, all the money spent for NOTHING! Obama is a born LOSER! And he proves it with every moment and every decision.

You have your answer(s). In case you haven't figured it out yet, nobody is going to give you an answer you like usedto. We know it, you know it so bombastic behavior and hysteria on your part does nothing to further your childish rhetoric, unless that was your point all along, which we got three demands ago. Any more questions you need help with???

Epic failure? The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Committee has attached special importance to Obama's vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.

Call him George! CNN) -- President Obama looked uncomfortable as he stood before the nation on Saturday, announcing that he would ask for a congressional resolution of support to use limited force in Syria. Obama, who won the hearts and souls of many Americans in the 2008 election with his trenchant criticism of President George W. Bush's war in Iraq, now finds himself leading a controversial and ambiguous military operation that has little support, in Congress or abroad.

Obama made the assertion in a Dec. 20, 2007 interview with the Boston Globe when reporter Charlie Savage asked him under what circumstances the president would have the constitutional authority to bomb Iran without first seeking authorization from Congress.

“The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation,” Obama responded.

Rs, you don't get to decide anything that's said here except what your own comments are going to be. You're a clown, an asinine phony and a partisan hack, not a moderator so don't try to get too far out of character. If we're soooo tiring to read and you're sooo offended at the mention of Bush and partisanship then stop using him as YOUR #1 blaming point for EVERYTHING or go to a forum where everybody agrees with you and you don't get soooo tired out having to do research on what the h e l l were talking about, getting it wrong then resorting to partisan babble when hardly anyone agrees with you. Why is it you libs always accuse everybody else of doing what YOU do????

Follow the US Constitution and stay "OUT" of foreign wars. The American people do NOT want anymore wars or conflict intervention unless it is on our own soil. If Obama goes in, it ain't gonna be pretty very, very soon I do fear!

You are right RS it is not a decision for conservatives or progressives. It is one for the COMMANDER in chief... but all we have is Obama and his decision making talents are limited to civil rights and his one sided racist remarks about every single one of the any color on black ones! A war decision should be left to A MAN in charge not the civil rights organizer.

A great man with class and respect...

"The president's got a tough choice to make. But if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up," said Bush.

Bush, who rarely comments on President Obama's decisions or policies, refused to be "roped in" to a lengthy discussion on the subject.

"Putting our military into harm's way is the toughest decision a president will make," he concluded.
