"I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force -- if necessary -- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security." -- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

"There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years ... We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction." -- Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

Sure faked out your dumbS*** Dems, eh old man???

"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program." --President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998 "

"The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..." -- Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

Just another daily reminder, how useless the right wing extremist hair on fire crowd is. They don't agree on anything among themselves, nevermind letting them try to agree on how to run the greatest country in the world.

"WASHINGTON (AP) - House Speaker John Boehner (BAY'-nur) says he will support President Barack Obama's call for the U.S. to take action against Syria for alleged chemical weapons use and says his Republican colleagues should support the president, too.

The Ohio Republican says the use of chemical weapons must be responded to. He says only the United States has the capability and the capacity to stop Syrian President Bashar Assad and warn others around the world that such actions will not be tolerated."

why should we care about places that are not on the US continent map or people who never sent us a greetings card or mowed our lawn ? When you flush a toilet you do try to hold onto the content. when you leave a country you should leave it completely.

U.S. credibility is on the line? Are you kidding me?

The so-called 'people' (including illegal immigrants), vote a guy in as president who was never properly vetted, was never born in the U.S., and is doing everything he can to destroy our nations traditions & finances.

This country hasn't had any credibility since the days of Ronald Reagan.

So, the US has a Commander-in-Chief with no solid character, urging a war for which he has no solid basis demonstrating that American interaction is absolutely necessary.

Isn't it amazing how liberals cry out how children are being killed in Syria when these same people support the willful murder of millions of unborn children in the U.S.?

Where is the credibility?

Uncommon, the "Rebels" are supported by the Taliban and the Government is supported by Hezbollah! Both are ruthless MF's who would use their own children as human shields. Chem warfare is just another day at the office for them.

THAT is why we need to stay as far away from this effing mess as possible, it is LOSE LOSE LOSE.

So, lets be clear on this. Our Govt. is planning on teaching the Syrians a lesson about not using weapons that kill masses of people. And to make sure the Syrians learn this lesson Our Govt. is going to use our military to carry out the wishes of the "leaders" of our Govt. Even though 90% of the American people want no part of blowing up and killing masses of the Syrians.

Just say no Bambam. Just say no. We don't need to get involved in the civil war business. You have already shown how weak and waffling you are. We DON'T need you getting young citizens killed for your ego boost.

We are ALWAYS seen as the enemy when we get involved in a foreign civil war

Dealing with ONE dictator is ALWAYS preferable to dealing with multiple factions and there is plenty of evidence that the "rebels" were the ones that gassed the civilians

David Cameron is the first UK leader to lose a war vote since 1783!

We have no allies for this war against a nation that is now using the WMDs that Saddam Hussein moved there.

The liberals lied loudly and often about how there were no WMDs in Iraq and you believed it.

George W. Bush was a big government President. I disagreed with him on social welfare spending, immigration and Big Government. I was with him on national security, Supreme Court choices and tax cuts.

All in all, he was a good President.

Barry Hussein Soetero Obama makes Jimmy Carter look like Ronald Reagan.

Hef, Not sure you got the point of my post. I was making a counterpoint to Goose's post of;

Gooseman Sep-02-13 9:23 AM Agree | Disagree Funny how all the morons who were fooled by the lies of lilbush,"

I was pointing out all the Dem's who are obviously "morons" to Goose.

@wvexpat: You should burn some incense in front of your shrine to Obama that President G.W. Bush took the action he did. The WMD's that Assad is now using were shipped there from Iraq as were the airplanes. Guaranteed that if GWB had continued in office the world today would be a much more peaceful place to live. Why can't you just admit the disaster Obama has been? Don't continually demean yourself for your political parties kowtowing to Obama because he is black, and black is their power base.

there would be no more conflict ih the middle east if you used the ultimate threat. Give them ultimatum. Lay down your arms or face forced membership into the American Democratic party. They will throw down everything and maybe throw up at the though of self inflicted doom.

No telling how many defense contractors have fleeced the American taxpayers for how much. Agreed ? Attach a credit card terminal to any war and the contractor lobby will shame the elected representatives into approving another costly charge card action . Agreed ? How bout a BOGO from the contractors ? Most conflicts are about preparing ground for another chain retailer . Agreed ? At what point in any elected individuals terms should they say, " Enough. I need to leave America more financial positive than I found it " As for the alledged bad treatment in other countries. It could be said. Glad we don't treat our people like that. Just drop a million guns into the middle east and allow the oppressed to talk to their oppressors.

Simply put, Obama is a national embarrassment, is a disgrace to the ***** race, and is like a vagrant who has found a whole apple in a garbage can.
