    Getting involved in Syria is a total no-win scenario.

    I would agree. There is no positive outcome there.

    Then perhaps we should not get involved. If we were to get involved here, then why not get involved in the same type of thing in Africa and other places. If other powerful interests such as China or Russia do not want to get involved then why should we play the world’s policeman (always at our taxpayers and military families expense)?

    What is Obama supposed to do? Tell everyone what he has planned?

    Nothing wrong with being cautious about sending American soldiers in to get themselves killed in Syria.

    We gave rebels humanitarian aid: food, medicine, etc. They told us to stuff it; they want guns and ammo. First clue about how they will govern when in power. Didn’t we try that with, oh, what’s his name……….bin Ladin? Ahmed Chalabi? Charled Taylor in Liberia? Idi Amin in Ethiopia? Any lessons learned? I appreciate not being led into another non-winnable Middle Eastern quagmire.

    why leave out ferdinand marcos, manuel Noriega, saddam Hussein, the Taliban, Kadafi……..

    we keep doing the same thing over and over (and generally it’s the conservatives that make this mistake with backing from the spineless liberals). Who made us the worlds policeman? who gave us the right to decide for these nations?

    most of you calling for war don’t even understand the references or history that play one and I listed. and i’ll bet for certain you haven’t read bin ladens fatwah that describes exactly the mistakes we continue to make and how the umma can defeat us through our lack of understanding. and they ARE succeeding.

    There’s no solid proof that Syria has crossed the line, just the same kind of intelligence we had about Iraq and WMD. Also, all the evidence is being filtered through Syrian rebels who have a vested interest in making the government look guilty. The Prez is smart to be very careful.

    The double-dog-dare- crossing the red line thing is actually the Republicans baiting Obama to commit the U.S. to military action in Syria. Then when the U.S. gets bogged down in another disastrous war, they will scream – “See, they are as stupid as we were.” Thankfully for all except the Republicans, Obama will not take the bait.

    That’s right he’s not gonna take the bait. He doesn’t have ties with a corporation that is set to make a mint (Cheney,cough) from the gubbermint he’s in charge of running.

    There is also another factor.

    We have shipped our manufacturing overseas. We have exported a lot of technology to support those export efforts.

    So – we are growing the economies of our competitors, if not our enemies.

    Which one of these ‘little’ wars is going to be the one that bites us? If we continue on this way, it won’t take a super power to take us out – one of these little exercises will be enough to do it, eventually.

    Let’s just skip Syria … in the interest of National Security …
