    Given the ongoing situation, I’d say that’s as effective as anything else.

    THIS is how Obama leads from behind…

    He should then lead us into another quagmire in the Middle East? Such leadership as was exhibited by the last administration the US can do without!!

    We don’t need to be in Syria in any way, no weapons, no nothing. Let them sort it out.

    The C.I.A. wants to send small arms to the Syrian Rebels.
    We all know how well that worked out in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Etc…Etc…Etc…

    Allies to the rebels need to send one bullet delivered by the right person to Assad’s head.
    However – I share the fears of other commentators concerned about Americans being killed, costs to taxpayers, failure to arm/support an actual ‘friend’ to the US, and other concerns that have been expressed.
    Syria is becoming the chessboard on this decades cold war playing field. Proxy wars between enemies are underway and no matter who wins, the people of Syria, and the region in general, have already lost.
    Sadly,
    but Respectfully,

    …And here I thought you Left were concerned about human rights no matter where on Earth it was needed. But you just proved as long as politics come first.

    If McCain and all his fellow conservatives wish to intervene in Syria, let them, as individuals , go over there and fight…They may actually learn something, but I doubt it…
    An Iraq solution……………Civilization comes slowly….Allow them to return to a more comfortable age for them…say…the 600s.
    Allow them to change their borders to separate the Sunnis, the Kurds, and the Shites..
    Give them 600 years to learn how to co-exist and respect each other…
    Maybe all of us need this 600 years..
    Their borders were set up by outsiders (English, Europeans,…They must “butt-out” !
    Leave the Arabs alone…

    Credibility is the problem. With no real way to know who you are arming or what will happen after the regime falls. Libya and Egypt seem to be good examples of that. As long as they are fighting amongst themselves they aren’t terrorizing us. You may think I’m wrong but it seems like another disabling tactic by the brotherhood. Turkey is next.

    It has nothing to do with politics itself. It is the expenditure of American wealth and especially the blood of its young and best. Try your attitude out on the relatives of the military and other American lives lost in such disasters as Iraq. When you pick your miserable self off of the floor, that is!!

    No one should be surprised when the consequences of an ill considered threat are forced upon them. Even a President.

    Chemical weapons, MAYBE used on less than 200 people, compared to 93,000 + deaths, was an idiotic line to draw in the sand, and BOTH “parties” here in the U.S. bought into it. That we have no clue who will replace Assad, or what, doesn’t exactly support interfering in a CIVIL WAR.


    btw: compare U.S. casualty figures in stopping Serbian atrocities to those in Grenada (to depose a government), Panama (to arrest one man), Iraq (to get one man), Afghanistan (to destroy a government WE put in power, and replace it with a man of OUR choice). “Death by misadventure” has long been more likely under Republican policies and commitments. (BTW: our real screwup that got us seriously into Viet Nam was in 1954 and “Ike’s people”, not the final stupid straw LBJ pulled out of the stack. Obama is just flirting with a straw man that Republicans and AIPAC have long been holding a match to in Iran. Assad is just “dupe of the day”.)

    He said Military Action is n the table should Syria cross the Red Line.

    He said Military Action is on the Table to keep Iran from building Nukes.

    He is close to taking us to another quagmire in The Middle East.

    Had Ronald Reagan not supplied Osama with more Bullets in the Mid 1980’s, Russia would have killed Osama when he ran out of Bullets. September 11, 2001 never would have happened as the Mastermind behind the attacks would have been dead for 16 years. Russia still would have collapsed and we would not be in The Middle East today.
