    So since it’s Obama YOU want to bomb away despite all the rhetoric in the past about “war criminals”, illegal wars, and the liberal stand against armed conflict….right?

    And who appointed you the authority on deciding who is “ready” for democracy and freedom?

    I’m actually in support of giving Obama authority.
    I know, it’s scary how bad he could mess it up and it’s also his way of being able to say “Congress voted for This” if things do go bad. Make no mistake, This is his action and he owns it.
    BUT, this is his call to make as President. Whether we like it or not, He is the Commander in Chief.
    After all his talk about the Red Line, the US would look extremely weak if we did nothing. It would give all other governments the green light to basically do whatever they want. Our future words of caution or even threats would become impotent. This would put our future national security at risk.
    I just hope he listens to his generals and does what is the most effective, not what he thinks is politically correct.
    Thoughts and prayers are with our troops.

    “other governments the green light to basically do whatever they want” to their own people.
    .
    Indeed they should have that right, as our government is allowed to do anything to us that we permit.
    .
    Indignation on our part?
    Nothing could be further from affecting America’s way of life than civil war overseas..
    .
    Unless we declare war on them, then we have a problem.

    American Soldiers are not dogs. I really don’t care for today’s cartoon Ms. Wilkinson.

    “Neither does that gutless wimp Obama, which is why he delegated his responsibility to Congress hoping they’d say no!”
    .
    If that is true and congress says “no” and he abides by it, in the end it will be a good thing.

    There is nothing in that cartoon to suggest that the poor dog is an American Soldier. The clear inference is that the dog is the American people in general.
    If you can indicate 1 thing that clearly suggests soldier, I’ll eat my words.

    “Obama made everything worse. Everything.”

    Pretty much everyone involved in this is a chickenhawk, with everything to gain (profiteering or ego-stroking) and nothing to lose (they and theirs won’t be in those “boots on the ground”, after all).

    In find it inferred, who dose the fighting.

    Why ?…preserves the equipment for the next “round”, and the real estate for the benefit of the wealthy (who mostly don’t do the fighting and dying!) to ‘own’ or sell to the next population. ‘Course the ’clean-up’ of hundreds/thousands of decaying corpses – human & otherwise – will be a mind numbing ‘employment’ for those refugees remaining…thank the ‘Job-Creators’? If you had to die in a war…would you enjoy your comparatively (to bombs, artillery and bullets) lingering excruciatingly painful death because your leaders (or your enemy) could appropriate, intact, the possessions and infrastructure you and your neighbors built and payed for. Think before you type such insensitive insanity.

    “You don’t get blood and guts in the gutters, which attracts flies..and your buildings stay intact. … War… is about destroying your enemies.. Gas is much cleaner way to do it.” You seem to me to extole the ‘virtues’ of gassing the populace as ‘cleaner’, but without support services (subject to the gas, too), the decay of the victims will produce the same effect or worse for its pervasiveness. “Collateral” casualties are, so far, unavoidable if one chooses war (Gulf I) as an answer, even to an already in-progress martial conflict, but can be minimized (Gulf I vs WW-II) by non-indescriminate actions – something totally lost in the use of WMD such as gas. You are correct ! War is caused by and may be defined as “Insanity”…but I find the glorification (even with tongue-in-cheek) of this type and specific weapon, offensive. If you aren’t promoting its use, as your second post indicates, please find another way to make your point. The ugliest part of this affair seems to be the fact that non-combatants will die, no matter what course is followed and, sadly, we can only hope to minimize the suffering and death.

    Why isn’t anyone talking about sending humanitarian aid to the civilians?

    The British Parliament specifically voted against involvement, because they were blatently lied to by Bush and Cheney to go into Iraq, period, end of story, and a FACT!


    WE have beaten the dogs of war near to death since Viet Nam, Lebanon, Iran/Contra to kill in Nicaragua, support for the brutal Pinochet and the generals in Argenitina, Grenada (a British protectorate), Panama, Iraq of course when GHW could have prevented the invasion of Kuwait quite easily, then of course, Afghanistan and Iraq, again. Then throw in our “standby” performances in Tunisia and LIbya, fomenting on Egypt, and basically installing fanatic sectarian regimes to replace secular ones. Hmm, all so we can make the world “safe” for good “Christians and Jews”, by killing all the Muslims in the world?


    Name some wars that Buddhists have STARTED to convert people, or steal their land, or subjugate them to a military power.


    Altruism doesn’t have to stand by helplessly. A key to the “martial arts” is that they are based upon DEFENSE, not offense. They also call for respect, even admiration for your “enemy”, even though you might disagree.


    We have beaten the dog of war with the stick of hatred, for Muslims, for “basic brown people”, and drummed up hatred for any and all we perceive as “enemies”. Even as casual a forum as this, finds the “conservatives” so sold on wars, and hate, accusing those who challenge them of being the ones filled with hate, whenever they cite history, facts, or attempt to reason, as rational human beings.


    It is sad that the fear of damage to our national, or his “personal” pride, has led Obama to this latest idiocy, for which he IS following our Constitution, by seeking the compliance of the Congress, as required. Ah, but he’s weak, because he uses the law he studied, and of course, he’s weakest because he isn’t one of “us”, as his birth
    certificate is obviously fake, and how can anyone with his “background”, be allowed to be President, in the land of the free, and the home of well, the chickenhawk.
