    Lots of Skunk works afoot with this “civil war”. ~

    The people that want this war ~ are the people that need to fight it. ~

    The line forms in Syria ~ so please leave the US if you want to fight this war among wealthy neighbors and kinsmen.

      Deerinwater; I might spring for the airplane ticket to the Syrian Front; for,the Hawks – – the Chicken Hawks! It is always someone else’s Dime; and someone else’s Kid; that has to, “pony & man-up,” for these war mongers. Not this time!

        Hmm been no Draft in forty years so the part about “someone else’s Kid” doesn’t really apply BUT the “Dime” does. It would be nice it they took the amount they are going to spend and instead spent it cleaning up some of the problems we have in our country.

          Point being; GOP has no hesitation in spending our Grand Kids Future; but, if they had to pony up their own flesh & blood; maybe the Hawks would think twice about jumping into Wars.

            Not saying that McCain and Graham, as well as other RINOs, aren’t going along with Obama and his gang, but most in the GOP are against this senseless war the President has been pushing.

            The President – if you care to open your eyes – is pushing for a diplomatic solution and it seems to be working. It’s time you revised your “Ideas” on this matter.

          • Robert Messmer

            The President was pushed, kicking and screaming, into trying for a diplomatic solution. Which is why even after stating that he was going to try for a settlement he still threatened Syria with military action NOT being off the table. In addition he is arming the terrorists in Syria.

            Whatever gets results without American soldiers getting killed – that’s a clever leader.

  • Robbie

    If it is true that the American people do not want yet another war then President Obama is following the will of the people. The President – by hook and by crook – is working at a diplomatic settlement. Are Syria and Russia trustworthy? Not much. But it’s not a perfect world and the President is doing a good job at trying to get the desired result and it just so happens to be what Americans want.

    I’m surprised his approval rating is still as high as 47%. There must be a lot of people out there who don’t have a clue as to what’s going on!

      LOL maybe the poll was only taken among registered Democrats.
