Wow! Bomb Syria for bombing Syria.

Obama wants to help Al Qaeda linked groups? The same jihadist that we have been fighting in Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan? I say no more American blood and treasure wasted on trying to keep Muslims from killing other Muslims.

why do we think ...or let me rephrase that....why does Obama think the US needs to be the world police? There has been over 100000 murdered in Syria over the past few years and now suddenly we decide we need to enforce some world law and bomb them. Barack just played golf and spent his time on Leno then and now suddenly he is a war hawk??? Really?? We are NOT the worlds police and we have no right launching a single Tomahawk unless there are US interests involved ...such as our oil supply as in Kuwait. This is ALL about Barack and his stupid red line comment and nothing more and that is NOT a reason to launch missiles. Some limited two day strike by the US will do NOTHING to deter terrorist aggression in the region so that begs the question...what is this REALLY all about?

Right on target people. Obama has painted himself into a corner again with his rash and thoughtless comments. He knows he is on the hook for his rash red line threat..so he will ask Congress to approve his "stikes" and they will decline, letting himself blame them for not being able to proceed. He never accepts responsibility for any of his many mistakes. Blames others. This is a Muslim war. It has nothing to do with us.

To those on the right.

What course of action could Obama take that you would support?

@JoeBlow:

We would support staying out of it.

How would you like another country bombing Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, or California for all its violence?

To those on the left:

What more courses of action could Obama take, that would have you lose your support?

Just checkin ahead of time Worf,
I personally think that we need to be much much less inclined to get involved.

So, at this point, I believe that we should hold off. I also like the idea of letting congress make the decision.

But, with the hatred of anything obama seen on these boards, it would be nice to hear what those on the right want. Then, see if they praise him if happens to do what they want.

Obama knows nothing about being a leader. He thinks that when Russia, Great Britian and Germany have refused to interfer with Syria, that he is some kind of leader to demand that we send our sons and daughters to Syria. Let him lead the way. Let him go to Syria. Let him fight for Syria. Let him put his life on the line. Until then, it is just more "Obama rhetoric", i.e., "do as I say, not as I do."

@JoeBlow:

Speaking out isn't hatred. It's being a responsible citizen, and caring about what's best for your country. It's being patriotic.

If our country was improving, I'd be one of the first to be complimenting Obama. I don't have an ego problem. I don't care if it's democrat, or republican, I want the best for this country.

Obama is just not cutting it, and it concerns me.

Benghazi is approaching and there is no election hype for this man. He had to be tough with Mitt Romney and is now using his flexibility after the election to push G-20 with the host KGB Putin as the man who controls this meeting and agenda as the host will.

Putin has a strategy and policy that has existed for 60 years to thwart anything the United States of America does. He, not this President, has now more flexibility than our country does. He won the chess game, this time. Russia learned from their exposure in Afghanistan for 10-years, even having to run with their tail between their legs.

The President is doing the Secretary of Defense and Secretary of State work as he showed over the weekend when he kept those individuals out of the top decision making processes. He is showing who is in charge and begging for acceptance from the G-20 and Congress. By the way, he is the one who convinced Congress to pass the bill and then read his and Hillary's words for the past 20-years of managing and governing he and his wife have done. A Proud American first-lady.
