Obama, put forward an ultimatum, and now that it has been challenged feels the need to respond so that he does not appear to be a weak president to the world. I hope that he has given more thought about how they will respond if he orders cruise missiles fired upon Syria. He rightly says that Americans are weary of wars, so his interpretation is that we are okay with him launching missiles as long as it does not involve troops on the ground. Mr. President, if you fire missiles, there will be a response which will likely escalate into the war that you imply that you do not want, but that many Americans know you are trying to instigate. Remember the Maine, remember the Lusitania, Remember Gulf of Tonkin, remember WMDs, and more, all incidents where the American people were lied to push the country into war. Young men and women die, and the military industrial complex industries get richer. According to RT.com recently released CIA documents showed that the CIA indirectly played a role in Saddam Hussien gassing Iranian troops. I wonder if there is a CIA connection with this latest gassing. Nobel Peace Prize! For what?

If Obama really wants to punish Syria,--he'd go there and push Obama Care.

"limited" action against Syria will have "limited" results. Why bother. And, if Syria does carry through with its threat to attack Tel Aviv Israel, then we may have a full scale mid east war. Let's stay on the sidelines for this one.

No!

I don't care if it's Obama or Bush!

Syria [and Iraq or Afghanistan] did not attack us.

Someone is trying to drag us into another conflict.
Follow the money.

@ LDS liberal. Its Al Qaeda and their affiliates that operates in Iraq, Afghanistan and now fighting in Syria that has attacked us many time! 9-11 mean anything to you? How do we stop them if we don't go to where they train and from the places where they export these attacks? You didn't hyperventilate when the Navy Seals went into Pakistan to eliminate bin Laden did you? Now Obama wants to help Al Qaeda in Syria? Obama, Biden and Holder, the new American aristocracy are very confused and have no credibility.
