The The Louisiana Purchase ?
Don't forget the last time this administration could not find votes for something unpopular. Remember the “Cornhusker Kickback"?
What would the payoff be for party loyalty on bombing Syria?
greek- sure it matters what you think.and you have the right to verbalize it as well. a point I would make is that if any country such as Syria would use chemical weapons on their population, how responsible could they be with a nuclear capability? radiation is the weapon that keeps on giving.
Most of our enemies already have nukes. What difference does it make. Keeps everyone honest. Besides, it doesn't matter too much what a peon like me thinks, does it. They use it on us, we punish them back.
How do you feel about Iran having a nuclear capability, greek?
The only thing that will happen if the US fires a shot across the bow of Syria is that both sides will hate us instead of just 1. I say let the worthless UN deal with it. Them people over there have been fighting each other for centuries and we are not gonna make a difference in a positive way. We will only make it worse, no matter what anyone thinks or says. !! You would think we would have learned that by now, after Iraq and Afghanistan !! Pass me some popcorn and lets be spectators in this "cage match".
Someone one the pn&s thread suggested that Barry had somehow influenced the tea party/republicans to oppose war, and seemingly overnight.how convenient is that modified stance on the Syrian issue?
lts- no it would not be because he "is my guy". Do you think the intelligence around the origin of the launches could be wrong?
after reading post to valveguy, may i clarify that my use of susan or hillary was only to be taken as "fall-girls" for his ultimate failure. john kerry, is the point-man for this juggernaut. neither of these were intended to assign influence. they are merely loyal minions for the harborer of inexperience and poor decision making.
moderation, good afternoon. thanks for the repost of my comment. it is good to know someone reads them from time to time. :-) actually Obama has recently enlisted the aide of ol' waggle-finger Bill Clinton to try and shore up support for the sinking ship that is Obamacare. it is so glaringly popular that even Obama can't keep up with all of the fleeing rats and requests to opt out of "his" grand scheme. many times it is better to have a workable plan before watching it unravel upon application. this syria situation shares many simiularities with the iraq conflict. what particular shining example within this horrible decision makes you percentage-wise more comfortable? could it be because it is your guy?
Assad is responsible for all ordnance.
Syrian government forces may have carried out a chemical weapons attack close to Damascus without the personal permission of President Bashar al-Assad, Germany's Bild am Sonntag paper reported on Sunday, citing German intelligence. Syrian brigade and division commanders had been asking the Presidential Palace to allow them to use chemical weapons for the last four-and-a-half months, according to radio messages intercepted by German spies, but permission had always been denied, the paper said. This could mean Assad may not have personally approved the attack close to Damascus on August 21 in which more than 1,400 are estimated to have been killed, intelligence officers suggested.
Everyday Putin gets up and pinches himself because he can’t believe that while he does nothing, Obama’s legacy keeps going up in smoke. He also cannot believe the Obama the amateur actually thought that Russian President Dmitry Medvedev was in charge of Russia. LOL Now we have USA and Russian war ships staged by Syria. The USA ships are there to attack Syria. Who are the Russian’s there to attack……………………………………………………………………………………..?
Hope and Change? Well, Putin got his..LOL
lts said"he realized that two of his useful stooges were busy, namely hillary and susan, so he decided this one was gonna be all his! wait, i did neglect to mention ol' stiffy....no not that one, i am talking about the purple-hearted, shot in the arse, married my fortune john kerry. i did know know if anyone noticed his mama-warbucks sitting stage-left behind him doing her best "dog-in-the-window" bobbleheading in agreement with him as if she could lend any credibility to the manure he was spreading. simply incredible. after benghazi, only the delusional or insane would believe this group of hacks." Sure, valueguy, go ahead and bring in bill and monica.
Well, good morning valueguy. There have been clear references to proxy influences throughout this forum. Simply scroll back and refresh or enlighten your memory.My point is, to you, is that the churches position on the Syrian issue is contradicted by its' history of extensive criminal permissiveness within the priesthood.Now,again,review the previous posts,vg.You will find the pope/church referenced as a credible authority of opinion on the Syrian issue, with respect to this forum.
I fail to see your connection between Barack's legacy on Syria and sex offenders in the Catholic Church. Should we Bring in Bill and Monica also?
After the Syria vigil, the pope should now hold a vigil to show concern for the hundreds of lives damaged by sex offending priests who hid within and was supported by the church for centuries.
lts- I did not say that Barry wasn't responsible for his situation.And,I will say that I was 200pct. against the 'reasons' to go to war in Iraq, but a much smaller # on this issue.
moderation, so it is everyone elses fault that Obama finds himself in the position he is in? i think he should have been called on it. it will be interesting to see whether he: 1) says i effed up, 2) puts our military in harms way, or 3) kills innocent syrians and empower those factions that would do the same to us as they have to Assad if given the chance. to Monte Hall, i'll take door #1 please. i appreciate your take on the matter but you did not say whether you actually supported his decisions past and future regarding this "man-made" disaster.
