    We can’t justify what Syria has done. We shouldn’t try.
    But we don’t need to keep rescuing other countries by going to war for them and then staying and occupying them forever after.
    I say No to any new wars!

    Is it no wonder the middle east is a powder keg it is today? He gets elected, they hang a Peace Prize Collar around his neck. The guy only knows Sal Alinsky Chicago politics. And i am sorry but the checker playing form of dived and exploit, Jump, get money from other to fight an imaginary battle against (fill in the blank) jump again. just does not work on the world stage of Chess Masters. Obama has lost his 1st move! Apologize apologize they will love me, was the tune he sung. they heard, I am weak so very weak, i will coincide and ignore what you do. i am not Bush I am not bush, i will not be aggressive… To which the world leaders laughed! Then Obama went out of his way to snub allies.
    So now we have it, Obama had to finally try to make a stand and his puppet masters behind the scene gave him the red line, line. i said it then and I am am telling you I told you so, that was an open door to not only Syria but to anyone who wants power in Syria. Obama said “Hey everyone, If you do gas we the USA will bomb something for you.” And that is where we are now. Obama is going to now act all tough and like Clinton take out some Janitors in a Aspirin factory or something. Obama is going to explode 1.5 million $ fireworks and call it a victory. Oh boy.

    We hope the same thing, Mr. President.

    p.s. Does someone have a muzzle that might fit Harleyquinn? He’s kind of like the neighbor’s dog who won’t quit yapping; he doesn’t know what he’s barking at, but he just can’t (or won’t) stop.

    He has a dream that he can arm a proxy army (the Syrian “rebels”) with chemical weapons, and when they use said weapons claim that the Syrian government did it.

    Oh wait, that’s unfortunately not just a dream.

    Why Oliphant draw MLK’s mouth so huge ? Not flattering to his memory at all.

    So this cartoon MLK is a descendant of Uncle Remus?

    In truth, we should not go there. Every time we act militarily (especially in small countries that have neither attacked nor threatened us), even on supposed humanitarian grounds, we make things worse. If there is some response to the Assad regime, it must be from the international community.

    You’re so stupid it’s amazing the folks at the nursing home have not put you on the “do not revive” list.
    A low information demonRATic voter like you is too stupid to know that many of us have family and friends in the military are are being put into harms way for no good reason. Second, Obama is helping allies of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Pity your nursing home can’t legally pull your plug.

    If I recall correctly, Oliphant drew MLK in at least one unflattering way in the mid-60s. It was a cartoon drawn with a hippie-type opening an envelope, and the hippie said in the caption, “Drafted? Hell, I wanted to fight in the streets this summer!” A poster on the wall had MLK in an Uncle Sam pose as in the old Draft signs, pointing outward, with the words, “Join the Peace War. Martin Luther Wants You for a Daffodil.” Or am I confusing this with some other cartoonist? If so, I apologize. I had a clipping of this cartoon for years, along with others from Oliphant, as well as from Stayskal, Herblock, and Mauldin. All gone now.
    .
    Anyway, MLK was not always the untouchable icon he is today. I’m sure this one of the least unflattering ways he has been depicted.

    @ Harleyquinn
    The middle east was a powder keg long before any of us were born. It will be so long after we are gone. You give Obama credit for far more influence than he actually has."
    Yes and no, it is more likely to go boom today then anytime since Carter! And this time big boys have Nukes! Obama is an idiot! The USA DOES have much influence, Obama, not so much because he just flat out can not compete on a world scale! Chicago he knew how to get elected, Nationally he knew what free stuff to promise to give away and the media knew who to smear. That does not cut it on the world stage.

    There is no muzzle big enough to fit that mouth."
    Spoken like a true liberal, can not argue a point, smear the other guy. Kind of like Obama problem. He is in a lose lose, He did not “support” anyone and both sides are smear worthy. Now Obama has shot off his mouth and we the USA are going to have to pay for it so Obama can save face.
