Who is buddies with Syria? The only threat that we would even consider a threat is China ... and they too would get it.

Plus we have NATO, the United Nations if we decide to invade.

Only the [()] French would sit out combat. This would be a beat down of Desert Storm / Enduring Freedom levels.

Our Air Force alone can take out most countries. That's how advanced we are ...

Yeah the Syrian rebels are no better than Assad is. They are heavily in league with Al Qaeda.

In my honest opinion the people of the middle east can't handle democracy yet. They are still living in the dark ages culturally.

"Syria stresses again, for the tenth, the hundredth time, that if we had such weapons, they would not be used against its people. We would not commit suicide," Faisal Maqdad said.

Bingo. That's the thing the reporters and the analysts and the pundits never seem to grasp. The mission "bring peace and democracy to the region" is flawed right from the start. I mean...the processes of democracy alone in that region, outside of Israel, make Tammany Hall look like a bad joke.

You can't just take a bunch of people who've been ruled firmly by a strong, non-tolerant religious ethos for centuries and say "K, go do democracy." That's how Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood get legitimately elected.

everything Syria's government has said has been a lie. they've denied everything they've done to the Syrian people or rebels but there are pictures and reports to prove it.

its funny in that same article Syria's government also states how accusing them of ready to use chemical weapons(IF they had them according to Syria) is a western ploy for intervention. i expect all of the anti US conspiracy retards to capitalize on that one because our media supposedly lies and makes up so much stuff because we want to go to war with everyone so bad. so many stupidass's that don't even read US news regularly to know

There are some who hypothesize that the reason no WMDs were found in Iraq was because they were shipped to Syria.

yeah i've been questioning the whole idea of us spreading democracy which supposedly deters terrorism for a long time now. i never understood that logic our politicians base their decisions on....

Who will pay for it? We just got out of recession and 2 wars. France sure ain't paying for it, neither is UK or anyone else. NATO will help fight, but they won't pay the whole buck. It will come back on US, as it usually does on these conflicts. US has sh!t ton of issues as it does with the two parties split across the board. If only we hadn't wasted resources, time, money in Iraq for Bush's personal crusade in Iraq to begin with. Iraq had kept Iran under check for last 3 decades. Now we have Iran to worry about AND China AND Russia and others.
