Resolved: The U.S. should attack Syria to make good on the president’s promise to act if President Assad crossed a red line by using chemical weapons.

Or, we’re crazy to attack Syria given the possible consequences of widening the war.

Or, we can’t allow the credibility of the president or the United States to be threatened by inaction.

Or, intervening in the Syria civil war would place us on the side of al-Qaeda.

You’ve heard these and all the other arguments for and against intervention in Syria. Now it’s time to tell us what you think.

I want a debate.

Senator Obama vs. President Obama.
Senator Kerry vs. Sec of State Kerry.
Senator Clinton vs. Hillary the Campaigner.

Nancy Pelosi vs. the current crone in her shoes.

I want the former using the EXACT words, "logic", demeanor and hurling the same invective they hurled at George Bush.

I want the Agenda Media, Oliver Stone, Michael Moore, Sean Penn and all the rest of Agenda Entertainment to stand up and spill the same bile.

I want the beard strokers and navel gazers in Agenda Academia to sign the same petitions and carry the same insipid signs in the same phony marches.

I want the debate between the hypocrites and liars and slanderers...using their same treasonous words...or I want them to stand down in abject shame.

Assad is an Assadhole...no question about it. He was one when Kerry and Clinton were licking his boots and calling him a reformer. He was one when the Agenda media was making him a Reformer Darling. He is one now.

But, this is not about what Assad does to his own people...IF...300,000 Kurds don't matter, and the Pig Latin cretins Upidstay and Umday's rape rooms didn't matter...then 1400 Syrians shouldn't matter.

What is gravy for the goose is gravy for the gander. And I want these traitors to take a gander at their former selves and their abject disloyalty to this country.

Because, I want consistency. I want fairness. I want loyalty. I want a nation led by people who do not have principles of convenience. I want countrymen who live by a code of honor that does not stop at their Party's door.

For, in the final analysis...what we do tomorrow in "Iran Lite" will matter not one whit if we allow ourselves to be led by a cabal of dishonorable traitors.

If yesterday they trashed the US, they abandoned Israel, they disrespected Britain...why in the world should I believe that THESE objectives are "pure"?

Our nation is not some "transformer" toy to be trifled with and tossed away when inevitably broken by the leftist toddler in their latest tantrum.

Obama's narcissism and graven image do not grace any altar where I kneel.

Chemical weapons raise the ante to a level that the WORLD should condemn. But, when traitors were presented with this argument...they slandered my country.

Let them soak in their own bile.

I have no interest in saving anyone who wants my country and countrymen destroyed. Nor any interest in voting them into office ever again. Expose them. THEN...and ONLY THEN...can we debate what to do to others who wish the same thing...who are not already inside the gates.

"Or, we can’t allow the credibility of the president or the United States to be threatened by inaction."

So we have to go to war to protect the reputation of a Nobel Peace Prize winner?

I vote no on AUMF. It's not yet clear that Assad used the WMDs. And what is it we hope to get out of such a strike? Assad loses a few helicopters? Russia will replace them. More Hezbollah fighters will enter the country and such a strike will be seen as ineffective, nothing more than a boy-president's temper tantrum.

And suppose the strike is effective -- that would have to entail the downfall of the regime. Leaving aside the foreign jihadists for a minute, don't you think there will be mass killings and atrocities on both sides. It would be complete chaos, not simply mostly chaos.

Complete chaos + muslim terrorists + unsecured chemical weapons = nothing at all good.

What must be established:

1- Were chemical weapons deliberately used?
2- Who used these chemical weapons
3- Was the use of these chemical weapons a deliberate tactical decision
4- Is this latest the only instance in this conflict of chemical weapons use.

We deserve and demand to see the evidence...too bad if we compromise some intelligence procedures and assets, but we need to be informed to make the proper decision.


We do not go to war over an accident, we do not make war if both sides have been gassing each other. We do not go to war because Obama opens his mouth and acts stupidly.

We go to war when American citizens and/or vital American interests are in jeopardy. We do not go to war with any other "Exit Strategy" than Victory.

And we do not go to war without declaring War.

In my view, we have no compelling interest in getting mixed up, yet again, in a civil war. Our interventions in civil wars during my lifetime (from Korea to Libya) have not gone so well. To quote George Santayana "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it".

Even if Syria used the chemical weapons, we 1) cannot afford the intervention and 2) other countries need to share the burden and risk. We should save our military resources for the inevitable war with Iran and to protect Israel. We should not be daring Obama to act alone by calling him "spineless" and emphasizing that he does not need Congressional approval. We are playing with fire by taunting his fragile ego. Instead, we should be chanting, "Save it for Iran! Save it for Iran!"

I totally agree with Sarah Palin on this issue. Let their own false god Allah sort it out. There is nothing here worth any additional loss of American lives and/or taxpayers' money.

He--, no, stay out of Syria. Enough of this silly foreign policy, though that is giving them more credit than is due.

There is no way we should go to war over what has been determined so far. It is very possible it was the rebels who used the gas. As well, there is no way we should risk potential war just because Mr Obama has no knowledge of how to manage foreign relations. In other words we and he should butt out!!!

No more blood and treasure -- ESPECIALLY to just cover someone's behind!

As usual, under this regime, we have no exit plan. In fact, we have no plan at all. Just the dithering of.... Well Shakespeare said it better than I ever could;

"A tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."

No half measures, no slaps on a figurative wrist. Either declare War with the objective of destroying the government and the armies and their ability to fight and their ability to launch gas attacks or STFU.

If the only reason to punish Assad is to protect Occupant's (non-existent) credibility, then we should by NO means bomb or otherwise attack in Syria.

If there's credible evidence that Assad DID use chemical weapons against his own people, a la Saddam Hussein, that evidence should be made public, shared with our putative allies and known opponents and a case made for international action.

As is, with only France, of all countries, in our corner, we walking on quicksand. Thanks to our foreign policy "experts" Kerry, Biden and, of course, Occupant, for weaseling us into this mess. We shouldn't bail 'em out.

No. Maybe had we gotten involved right in the beginning and backed the more western minded people wanting reform, but we didn't. I'd rather not establish Al Qaeda with it's own nation-state, WMDs and right next to Israel.

Not surprised Obama wants to but count me out.
