i do agree with you that chemical weapons are horrific, and i don't know the syria situation per se (you got me there), but i will always be about considering the full range of options and choosing the most pragmatic one. that's just the way we roll around here.

if you're taking any pleasure in the president looking like a jackass, you're playing a fool's game IMO. the president's very job is to look like a jackass and try to make the best decisions possible.

all you folks who go after him for nothing reasons or who went after clinton for his hanky panky... i just think you all have a really weird idea of what the job of POTUS is. like you want a priest-king or something.

giddyup.

One of the best post I've read in here in a while.

The US is flexing muscle but I doubt we'll enter another war.

The media leads you to believe something bigger will happen but they're secretly using this event to report the news. Why? Because they're having a field day at the office.

It's about ratings. One side can criticize the administration as hypocritical liberals and the other can stir up the anti-war crowd/non-interventionist crowd. It's the greatest marketing invention since cereal. You've got two different companies selling the identical product. Win-win for everyone.

Then, in the end, they'll tell you your decisions mattered and caused the President to change his mind. You'll continue read/watch your favorite news station and buy their product.

Otherwise, I've read many, many reports and I have yet to see any key breaking news/insider information or any quotes that haven't been taken out of context.

For example, OP's article never said we'd be using force within two weeks.

It's all misleading information.

How do US and Britain expect to attack Syria if Russia still has a naval base in Tartus? I mean shit could get ugly real fast since Russia already ordered multiple vessels to that base

It's really nothing at all the same. Just becaus something is subversive and starting small doesn't equate to Hitler and Nazi's. That's a huge freaking stretch, and frankly makes you sound silly, even the more silly that you keep arguing you are not doing it, and in the sentences you say this, you mention Hitler.

News talks about what sells ad dollars. Not what's important. Welcome to the world.

1. Hitler is Obama, therefore Obama is Hitler.

This is a misuse of logic since the comparison is a generalization.

But he did correct himself and keyed in on the methodology Hitler used which is a correct line of reasoning.

If you put a frog in boiling water, it will jump out immediately, but if you put it in cold water and warm it up, it'll remain there until it is dead.

His logic is correct.

First of all, UK wont go to war as just voted by the government...

Second of all, do you think this is a video game? Russia wont attack the US or Israel, they only sent an anti submarine ship to show to Syria they arent passive about it, its just for the image.

The only state capable and crazy enough of doing anything is Iran, and i doubt they'll do anything.

Lets wait, there's still a good chance nothing will happen. The US is still waiting for the UN investigation.

Russia is not going to do shit. They're always all talk. Jack and Ronald proved that.

one day people will look back on this "empire" we live in now and realize it was one of the most corrupt and manipulative empires ever. There has been so much Propaganda the last 20 years that if you do not question everything the US government says and does you are either beyond delusional or actually enjoy being on the winning side crushing the tiny country's

So much nonsense in one little sentence.

Poison gas is worse, much worse.

It's so bad that virtually the entire world has agreed never to use them.


They are much worse than the regular bombs that a drone uses. All those countries in green, use conventional explosives just like the ones drone uses.

Drones are not robots. They are piloted. That is their value. You can watch a suspect for weeks, by keeping different drones in the air.

You don't seem to know what carpet bomb means. It's absolute opposite of what a drone does. Your incoherence shows when you use the word assassin, an assassin kills a specific target, again the opposite of carpet bombing, the opposite of chemical weapons which is designated a weapon of mass destruction.

There's no doubt that drones are more precisely targeted than something like a cruise missile which takes a lot longer to hit its target. There's no doubt that drones involve less destruction than a ground assault on enemy territory. They are far, far less invasive than previous attack methods.

The issue is that ease of use means they are used far more often. We wouldn't have launched thousands of cruise missile attacks or thousands of ground assaults.

FDR, but that doesn't make it any less impeachable.

Article one, section eight is pretty clear on this issue, and he did take an oath to "uphold the constitution," but when you're already a kid-killer, what does lying matter?

I mean this article here seems extremely in the realm of fear mongering:
