    Our record is actually over four decades now of sticking our head in the traps!

    Over 60 years ago Ike told us who would come out the winner in these various actions.

    I notice that the Syria trap is much bigger than the other two.

    I’m not sure that Obama is of the same mold as the Bushies. I think (hope?) he is more grounded in reality and has something more useful than they did. Problem is that they pretty well poisoned the well for all who come after, so no matter what he may do, that previous history will be there to warp any response to any international situation.

    And out of the whole world, France agrees with the evidence that is rejected by every other country.
    So this time it is not a lie? Just because the last four wars were based on lies.
    Are Americans stupid? or are they stupid?

    Every other country is not rejecting the evidence. Even Russia agrees nerve gas was used. The issue is not evidence, it is will to act.

    @Debt Free

    The very point is that Obama HAS learned from past mistakes. Thus the reasoned but effective response.

    So what do you think of Obama’s idea to “go it alone” and that he can fire cruise missiles at Syria (or any other country) should he decide that it is in the best interest of the nation without the approval of congress OR the population in general?

    Obama is an international laughingstock.

    Effective in what way exactly? Has anyone defined who it was that used the chemical weapons? Has the international community rallied behind the leader of the free world?

    We hope effective. But of course there are uncertainties in complex situations, which is no reason for inaction in the face of the actual possession and use of nerve gas – a violation of International law and a crime against humanity. Reasoned response in that the proposed action is swift, targeted, and sufficiently punitive to deter continued use.
    Assad is reported to possess hundreds or thousands of tons of nerve gas and the capability to deliver. The rebels not so much. More will be coming from the U.N. report and the President Tuesday.
    My reading is that International support is growing, although the “poisoned well” syndrome is certainly in play. Only the U.S. has the military capability to deliver a targeted response. Other nations appear to morally support and will contribute to the cost, but not militarily. Canada is in that camp. At the G20 our foreign affairs minister, John Baird, chewed out Putin for providing moral, political, and material support to Assad.

    Good thing nobody is proposing a war on Syria.

    And so in your vast knowledge of the world YOU fall back on the tired worn out strategy.

    It’s Bush;s fault.

    I’ll use one of your rebuts – so the mid east problems and the US involvement started and ended with the BUSH’s and their policy?

    (good grief)

    however, in an attempt to be ….uh ….. fair and balanced …yes when our elected leaders are rebuked and scorned because of the continued war footing and policy despite promises to the contrary then America as a whole shares that position.
