A despicable dictator worse than Sadam.

@ One vote. Do you remember last Summer when Leon Panetta told us the Syrian rebels had overrun a chemical weapons stockpile and have these weapons in their hands? It is highly possible it was not the Syrian government that gassed their own people but the Al Qaeda backed rebels in Syria in order to dupe the US President and others to attack the Syrian government and help the rebels? Shouldn't we be very, very careful, not to fall into that trap, if it is a trap?

@ One vote. One more question; When Saddam used gas on his own people (Kurds) we never heard any of this hyperventilating from the left about Saddam. The intelligence was criticized and we were told Dick Cheney made it all up for oil! Why do we so eagerly accept the possibly flawed intelligence now as though it was irrefutable? Is the REAL difference only party ideology after all? I think so! Bush's war=bad. Obama's war=good!
