I'm suprised this thread is still here.
We have no allies in syria, the government and the rebels hate us and will do all they can to destroy us. We should stay out of it, why cause more bad blood in the region and with other countries?
The UN is useless.
Yes what syria did was terrible but killing your own citizens is terrible in any way shape or form. Unfortuanly it happens all the time, do we need to go into every country to fix it?
If bush was doing this I think most on this forum would go nuts over this. Obama was so critical of bush, went around the world on his apology tour, bowing to world leaders, what did it get him...nothing. What about the reset with russia, a joke, just like obabmas policies, national and world wide.
He drew the red line now he has to save face and do something. Sorry excuse for a president.
You are right 67. Obama's hypcocricy here is deep and sickening. However, the reality is the "red line" notion that chemical weapons usage must be responded to is entirely because of the Bush regime push to war in Iraq. And, all of the points you bring up about why we should not engage with Syria (all very good points by the way), why did those points not apply to Iraq?
My post was removed, that's pretty rare for me. Must be because I was critical of obama. I thought we lived in a free country but I guess I'm wrong.
Bush and iraq are not the topic here, that was then, this is now. Obama is the president, he is in the hot seat. His handling of benghazi was shameful, we still don't know where he was during the attack and the white house won't tell us. Why?
Obama took the "high road" and bowed to those people and now they are taking advantage of him. Pretty sad. Nothing good will come of this.
You have a point about using gas but I still think we should stay out of this. Just my opinion, I may be wrong.
Obama hurt our relationship with england so they have kept their distance. What a mess.
I fully expect this post to be removed because I dared to same something negative about obama. So much for the freedom of speach.
