Only if it's prophecy that has been going on for over a century because this area has been at war or the unoccassional uneasy peace all that time.

It is a mess. Is this prophesy being fulfilled?

There is an old saying, “an enemy of an enemy is a friend”. This puts Israel in the crosshairs of other nations in the Middle East who hate the USA but cannot get to us. I fear that when (not if) we go after Syria, Syria, with the help of Iran may go after Israel. And then you have the Russians hanging out there rattling swords also. What a mess.

But we have deployed Patriot missiles, in country and at Turkey's request, to protect their airspace .

I need to retract the statement about Turkey giving us authorization to use their airspace.

Turkey is giving us use of their airspace. The targets have been painted...... Principles can have expenses.

Jordan is helping with refugees but they have little to offer in the way of a strong military. If one looks at their history for the past 60 years, you would see that they tend to follow the leads of the other nations around them

Israel...do we really have to say why Israel cannot take direct action on this? If Israel did more than just protect their borders or take care of the occasional terrorist group, this could become a regional mess real quick.

I have no problem personally with the US, France and a few others securing the borders and maybe taking out some military locations that have chemical weapons. Just as long as we do not put soldiers on the ground.

While I agree that the surrounding nations of Syria should step up a bit, there are some harsh realities you are not considering.

Lebanon has nothing really to work with. For years Syria was screwing with them and their inner workings.

Turkey is part of the EU now and will NOT go against their overall wishes on this matter. Only if the Syrian Kurds began to strengthen and incite the Turkish Kurds to rebel would Turkey do anything.

Iraq has nothing to work with either. Getting involved in a Syrian war could decimate their fragile union. The Kurds would support their fellow Kurdish rebels. The Iraqi Sunni (a minority) would put itself in harm's way if they would support the majority Sunni population of Syria.

In a Facebook post titled “Let Allah Sort It Out,” former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin condemned President Obama’s decision to get further involved with the ongoing civil war in Syria.

“So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?” Mrs. Palin asked on Friday.

Great cartoon on the Times editorial page showing BO painting himself into a corner with his "line".

BO is the Pres, not John Kerry.

LTS. I thought you were joking but sadly, when I read the news I found out you were right. Turning over to congress is a win/win for him cause he can blame it all on them - as usual. Best thing they could do is turn it back over to him and Kerry. He ran on the platform of ending Iraq and Afghanistan and found out that was easier said than done. So it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I still say let the UN handle it.

John Kerry is a foreign policy amateur ?

Re Syria: BO went from beating on his own chest and doing his impersonation of Tarzan to passing the buck on to congress. This is what happens when you have 30 somethings in the Whitehouse being lead by a foreign policy amateur

The USA cannot afford another war or conflict !! Simple as that.. We have old people and children suffering here on our soil.

If the worthless UN wont do anything about it I would tell McCain to go on a 1 man bombing assignment and give him a vest and a plane trip to Syria. It is time the USA keep their noses to ourselves. We have rarely helped any of these situations with our "help" as it cements their hate toward us. It is time for the UN to do their job or let the world see how worthless they are.
