I can give Obama credit for the line he drew in Syria.

    The real test will be when that line is crossed. Will the White House continue to be bullied by the ideals of those that would love to see us fall in line with the rest of the world? Will we stand up for what is right when called? Chemical weapons being used on civilians is a good line to draw.

    More importantly do you think we should get involved at all?

      It will be interesting to see what happens if we do "fall in line". Remember, it was George Bush back in 1991 who allowed Hussein to use chemical weapons on his people after the first Gulf War.

        Do you have a copy of the email sent to Iran by Bush telling Iran he was OK with the use of chemical weapons?

          Was email even around in 1991?

    It's a matter of how much we want to be involved in running the Middle East.

    Assad is putting down an uprising of reportedly Islamic militants. Russia's Putin warned us not to get involved and suggested to the world arena that the US might "create" a story about chemical weapons that wasn't true - just as an excuse to attack Syria.

    Either way, if Obama attacks Syria, I hope he does it legally this time. No skirting the War Powers Resolution.

      Same MO, over and over, it is just getting silly how TPTB control humanity through propaganda and false flag operations.
