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.
BobDahler, thanks for your post. this whole event with the presidents reaction is a "head-scratchin" moment. just like benghazi, something just doesn't add up. it should bother most when the international community, namely our staunchest allies, leave the president dangling like a booger at the end of stretched snot. how does the saying go??? oh yes..the chesse stands alone and it stinks.
R1KRA8, thanks for notification of the fred sighting! i suppose there is still worth in having the printed page.
I will add, lts, ... I have no illusions to the savagery of which man may be capable. Cheney,Rumsfeld,and the man-child Pom Pom boy-w/dubya, as well as Assad are prominent when considering 'personality disorders'.
lts- many voices,since the last violation by syria, have demanded he be held accountable for his "red line" line declaration. The media, his political opponents,and his political supporters have fanned the fire.There have been repeated violations of that international expectation.barry has positioned himself in the only way I believe allows him to legally satisfy americans and still exhibit to the world, our political process.
luvethesouth posed: "makes one wonder whom is pulling the puppet's strings"
Perhaps GE, Halliburton, Wall Street... Who knows?
A sickening disappointment. "Bush-Lite" may be too charitable.
moderation, never said it would. you can't take away from what comes out of his mouth. this potential use of our military would be a grave mistake. kind of makes one wonder whom is pulling the puppet's strings. so where do you stand on "bush-lites" position?
The fat woman has yet to sing.
Puuuuuleeeeease, lts. That wouldn't set a precedent.
fred, when are you going to weigh in on this syria mess we seemingly are about to get into?
abc news headline: "President Obama Urges Congress to Vote Conscience on Syria, Even If Public Opposed". so much for a democratic country. this must be a representative republic. hmmmmm.
InSANE McCain is sure rattling the sabre. Let them people over there fight all they want. When they attack Isreal, they will get a quick education. If they attack the USA, we will give them one. I think they are just trying to spread our military all over the place then attack us up thru Mexico. Our forces will be overseas. SO, in that case there might be a time coming where many Americans will be glad to have a gun and the 2nd ammendemnt.
perhaps the president should have hosted a warm goat milk summit. AFP: "Three Russian warships crossed Turkey's Bosphorus Strait Thursday en route to the eastern Mediterranean, near the Syrian coast, amid concern in the region over potential US-led strikes in response to the Damascus regime's alleged use of chemical weapons." Syria has its allies as well. perhaps the bear has been awakened. keep your eyes on damascus.
Our president misplayed his Syria cards like the amateur he is. For some reason he thought that the world would jump on his side on this one forgetting that the world no longer thinks he is a rock star. Putin is treating him as just another political left wing hack. His press conference at yesterday’s summit just shows that without a teleprompter, he is just another talking head. I just hope we don’t go ahead with this because his 30 ish something aides think it will help him “poll” better.
U.S. intervention to deter future gas attacks in Syria ( and the middle-east region) supported and rejected by locals.
