Are we (the USA) really going to launch an unprovoked attack upon Syria? Really?


Obama said a long time ago if the Syrian regime used chemical weapons in Syria it would cross a line. The last thing Asaad wanted was to have USA involvement. So, it makes no sense whatsoever that his regime would use chemical weapons. I agree with Vladimir Putin who has said this defies all logic. So, there must be another explanation like someone else or some other country manipulated this to happen, perhaps it was an accident of some sort, etc. I'm not convinced at all that we (the USA) are in possession of ironclad evidence that it was a purposeful attack by the Asaad regime.

    I am not convinced at all that the chemical attack was purposely done by the Asaad regime. I do not believe our USA politicians who say they are sure. It looks like we are going to attack though. Hope we are doing the right thing--what a mess!

    He has a history of saying one thing while doing another and has always been in the pockets of big money.

    Oh missy -- look up the USS Hope and USS Comfort (AH-6) and USS Mercy (AH-8) Those babies are bad ass. They sail so fast and so far. They got weapons of mass love and humanity. Where there is a tsunami, where there is famine. This horrible ships are

    You have some good points but why us? What do you think about the USA not going thru the UN when we always tell others to take it to the UN. We are saying heck with UN---we will do what we want to do---I think much of the world resents that.

    Its all done at the whim of the big shadow masters who run the multinational corporations that make their fortunes from war. Like Halliburton, the Federal Reserve, hidden with names like Black Water. It all about money as is NATO and the UN and WMF

    I just listened to Sen Rand Paul embarrass himself answer SefDef's rhetorical question to him "Is it more or less likely Assad will use WMD if we do nothing", to which Paul responds "No one knows for sure"!! What an idiot.

    Right! Why doesn't someone else closer do something? Why us? The Arab League has suspended Syria from the league... We are not going thru the UN which I also don't like---we always tell others they have to go thru the UN...

    but it does not address my question per chemical attack, etc., the rebels are a patchwork of groups, one cannibal nut case does not represent all of them no more than Jeffrey Dahmer represents all Americans, I hear you though--I do
