    Assad, you are a barbarian and evil as they come!

    The sad thing here is that the right wing in this country doesn’t really give a damn what Assad does, they’re just salivating because Obama is in a tight spot, and whatever decision he makes they will jump all over and use it to trash him (even if it is successful).
    They want the President to fail much more than they want an end to the slaughter in Syria.

    Someone recently made the comment, “If you hate government so much, quit running for public office.”
    Seems logical, at least to those of us capable of logic.

    I read some poll numbers, 70% of Republicans, and 70% of Democrats think we should not get involved in Syria.

    Who said the two parties could not agree on anything?

    Don’t worry; the war propaganda machine is just warming up. In a few months, we’ll all be as rabid to go into Syria as we were to go into Iraq. I understand the differences between Bush and Obama,but when it comes to keeping the military/industrial complex happy, it’s ‘meet the new boss; same as the old boss’. I’m beginning to wonder if the president even has a choice in this.

    The biggest mistake we all make is in assuming that some is actually in charge.

    All the presidents get too much credit and too much blame. Few people seem able to comprehending that no one person, group, or institution actually is in control. This is why conspiracy theories, left and right, are so popular. We all so much want to believe that all the world’s worries and problems are caused by someone, someone we can blame; and that, if only the right people were in charge, everything would be fine. That’s the great illusion we all share.

    Hahahah! By the way, who is it pressing Obama to jump into Syria? Oh yeah, McCain.

    Gotta keep the perpetual war machine going since the rich need to get richer and the only good paying jobs are in the military.

    And when the cruise missiles start taking out Assad’s war machine the cons will complain that we should send in ground troops.

    So true..
    .
    They want the President to fail much more than they want an end to the slaughter in Syria.
    .
    Or anything that would be good for the country.

    Acts of war require congressional approval. A smart Obama should (and is legally required) to put this before congress. Shoe on the other foot, and with any luck, we’re not pulled into another illegal war.

    Funny, a lot of people seemed perfectly okay with Mubarak using “Made in USA” tear gas against the citizens of Egypt… maybe they’re just upset that Assad isn’t a customer of ours?

    I won’t disagree that Obama’s “line in the sand” comment was not the wisest choice. Having said that, he has to “put up or shut up.” But the situation in Syria is a powder keg, regardless of Obama’s comment.
    And that Putin is putting the Russian’s in Assad’s corner ups the stakes frighteningly. Syria could escalate into WW3 with a horrifying suddenness.
    Obama is in the same spot that Kennedy faced with the Cuban Missile Crisis. One wrong step could be a disaster for everyone.
    I’m not thrilled with Obama’s performance on this issue, but I think any American President would be equally ill-at-ease in this situation.
    That having been said, I stand by my assertion that the political right in this country are poised to condemn him regardless of his actions or the outcome. They care far more about political gain than they do about peace in the Middle East.

    @PAJ

    Biased, me?
    You bet’cha.
    But for a right wing appliance like yourself to dole out criticism for being biased is as comical and hypocritical as anything imaginable.
    You lot do “biased” like it was a holy calling.
