    Do you believe that the USA government will take the proper steps in Syria to provide protection to

    the innocent civilians?  With the world under great chaos, Syria has staged a chemical attack on its own citizens. Do you believe that the USA should retaliate against those who took this action?  Do you believe it was the government or the rebels that used the chemicals?  Do you believe it is in the best interests of the citizens of the USA to attack Syria?  If you were President, what would you do?

    Unfortunately, probably not.  I don't have much faith in the administration.
    While I don't want to sit idly by during a holocaust, I also don't have much sympathy for terrorist countries.  I do think we should back Israel.
    I'm probably not giving a politically correct answer, but it's my opinion nonetheless and it's a great question. Probably one on the minds of many - and hopefully some prayers along the way.

      Nicely said, but America and Israel are terrorist countries.

    American Propaganda -- Corporate Party Lies!

    The American Corporate Party media (ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, etc.) all work for the Military Industrial Complex. The same people who own the media also own Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and the others.

    The ones with the saren gas were the US supplied rebels! Turkish troops found poison gas in the home of one of the rebels. Assad may not be a nice guy, but again, America is attacking a country that did nothing to us. We're the Evil Empire.

    Don't believe the Corporate Media lies or the government's lies.

    Remember those WMDs that Bush talked about and then joked about being non-existent while our boys were still dying from the war that he and his corporate buddies wanted so much?

    America has been acting like a bully for decades. And after 9/11, we have become the new Evil Empire doing everything bad that the Soviet Union used to do.

    I supported Obama 100% in 2008, believing all of his lying rhetoric. By January, 2009, it was evident that we had all been duped. You see, I live in the Philippines, and no longer watch the Corporate Party news. I get my news from many sources not controlled by Lockheed Martin and Raytheon.


    Wars are profitable. Oil stolen from conquered countries is profitable. Cheney was president of Halliburton. He was still receiving compensation from that company when it won the juicy war contracts. Conflict of interest?

    And 9/11 was an inside job. We don't know who did it, but it certainly wasn't 19 hijackers, some of whom were found alive after 9/11, and some of whom were trained by our own military in the months leading up to 9/11.

    There's tons of scientific evidence that the official story is wrong. See for the facts.

    NIST scientists lied. Their government report was finally forced to admit perfect free fall for WTC7 (the 3rd bldg to collapse on 9/11). Free Fall means that the supports offered zero resistance and solid steel NEVER offers zero resistance.

    Mayor Giuliani committed a felony by having evidence at the largest crime scene in American history destroyed, and shipped to China.

    Top Military officers responsible for the massive security failures on 9/11 all received promotions instead of courts martial.

    Smells like lies and cover-up.

    The government has lots of practice doing this.

    Heck, the CIA recently came out admitting that they helped overthrow a democratically elected president in Iran in 1953.

    Yes, conspiracies really do happen

    I am an Indian and of course citizen of third world, USA will get involved in Syria to end regime of Assad and liberate civilians from torture and  brutal killings . Third world and it's  leadership have had limitations and democracy, civil rights, freedom of expression are the luxuries so do not expect  much from military dictators or dynasties rule . It is true that military-industrial complex in 60s is  up again and advanced weapons will be tested here to grow business across globe.
    Now what is fate of third world people? Why USA imposes democracy on non-democratic societies in third world unless communities which are civilized and educated enough to understand importance of democracy and values/
    In Vietnam American intervened and prolonged war ended in withdrawal of Forces and victory for tiny Vietnam.In Iraq and Afghanistan , they are pulling out in phases and total withdraws at the end of 2014.
    All these nations are devastated due to war and rebuilding of their economy will be great task who is going to undertake these liabilities?
    Most of the third world nations are non-democratic and corrupt leadership and lack of civilian societies is the ill and replacement of one dictator by another dictator is the only movement , so backward communities and outlaws or Mafia emerged as Messiahs of the poor, see South America , many small nations under Hyperinflation , communities are engaged in trading narcotics, arms,  illegal activities and that is their livelihood.
    Excuse me for comment but what i read so far through news magazines.
    Syrian regime and rebel fighters both are non-democratic , so at which side USA
    want to join, after toppling of Assad regime is it possible to install democratic government ?
    Might is Right. If jungle law permits USA to send army there then who can stop them? When Saddam was hanged nobody could stop , protest of weak nations did not halt the process.

    If the US & UK attack the Assad regime, they will hand Syrians over to one of the most evil, vile & murderous groups in the world. They would kill anyone who is not one of them. It is obvious that the Jabhat al-Nusra "radicals" (actually al Qaida) in Syria know us better than we know them. 

    To quote an American who is over there an has studied Islam to understand what is happening: "Al-Nusra kidnapped tens of thousands of women and children for their own perverted sexual pleasures. In fact, a prominent Sunni Imam in Syria issued a fatwa declaring that it is permissible within Islamic jurisprudence to simply take any woman that the jihadis choose, including little girls as young as three years old. We’ve all seen the manufactured victim show a dozen times in the media coming out of the Palestinian territories or Iraq and even in Syria. They lay on stretchers groaning, covered in goat blood. Or they carry around the same dead infant for hours for the Western media to capture. And we here in the West demand that action be taken immediately. Sadly, it is an easy game. Knowing that the crux of the war in Syria is largely one of winning the battle in the court of world public opinion, the whole thing simply seems way too fishy to me to just accept that Assad would be so self-destructive."

    It is stupid thinking to believe Assad was truly dumb enough to cross the red line & gas 100s of people in full view of the world. The war in Syria is a propaganda war by the Islamists. A bit of healthy skepticism should be used before launching missiles!

    We should be demanding the Obama administration stop listening to the policy of the Muslim Brotherhood plants in his own government (there are at least a dozen) and Turkey's PM Erdogan.

    why in the world would we believe that a government that has not done one thing right in the last 5 years would suddenly do something right.   NO I do not believe they will

    I don't believe we have any business in Syria.

    Congress is on recess and has not voted for this measure.
    The UK Parliament voted 'No' and will not participate.
    Russian war ships in the area are there to protect their own interests, not the US.

    If the US plays a military role in this, then this President is showing active support for our enemies - al quadea aka The Muslim BrotherHood.

    This is going to be ugly and will be the undoing of this President. He has overplayed his hand.

    This is all a big chess game. The only Innocent are the ignorant pawns who will die for an unknown cause. The whole region is being destabilized to protect against high level social and political organization.
