obama embarrassed himself at the G20 Summit. I'm sad to say we have him representing our fine country.

He was so bad, an ex-KGB thug looked better.

@Hefner. I too miss Dubba.

Robert H. Scales, a retired Army major general, is a former commandant of the U.S. Army War College.

"Civilian control of the armed services doesn’t mean that civilians shouldn’t listen to those who have seen war. Our most respected soldier president, Dwight Eisenhower, possessed the gravitas and courage to say no to war eight times during his presidency. He ended the Korean War and refused to aid the French in Indochina; he said no to his former wartime friends Britain and France when they demanded U.S. participation in the capture of the Suez Canal. And he resisted liberal democrats who wanted to aid the newly formed nation of South Vietnam. We all know what happened after his successor ignored Eisenhower’s advice. My generation got to go to war. "

How many innocent Americans will die prematurely because of Obamacare?

How many are now doing without because of personal costs associated with Obamacare?

Obamacare was conceived and hatched in he11 & its evil effects have just begun to plague havoc on people's lives, finances, and health.

Lost jobs, lost healthcare, lost time, lost money, and mass confusion all a result of this evil legislation forced upon American citizens.

The majority of people are now paying much more for their healthcare and receiving much less in benefits.

1,400 dead in Syria?

How many have already died and will die in America as a result of this individual?

We will see just who wants a war with the vote of Congress. How will this be paid for? I say tax the 1% for the entire thing if it passes. Don't make those who are already struggling pay for this by cuts in domestic programs.

So you a%%hat liberals want a WAR with RUSSIA over Syria???

"The warnings raise the possibility of a supposedly "limited" strike on Syria turning into a proxy tit-for-tat between Russia and the U.S.

Rep. George Holding, R-N.C., went further during a hearing on Syria on Wednesday, pressing military officials on what the U.S. would do "if Russia decided to strike at us in that theater."

"We can certainly say that Russia would have options to strike us in that theater in retaliation for us striking their ally," he warned.

Dempsey declined to engage in that discussion, saying only that "Russia has capabilities that range from the asymmetric, including cyber, all the way up through strategic nuclear weapons. And again, it wouldn't be helpful in this setting to speculate about that.

Just friggen great. . . . .

President Obama is using the final day of the G-20 summit in Europe to build support for a U.S. military strike in Syria, even as the details of that plan continue to change by the day -- with one source telling Fox News that military officials have been asked to revise their plans 50 times since the Pentagon first began considering a “limited” action.

50 freaking times? Real Decision maker!

You dorks are drinking too much fracking fluid, your brains are turning into mush.

But when you support a turd like Nobama who draws a line in the sand, then asks his Mommy for permission to draw lines in the first place, you gotta be fracked in the head.

wonderliar is an example of a valley Neadrathal who runs their mouth instead of producing a shred of evidence to back up their position.

Must sux to be that poorly functional in society.

Isn't it time to insult your coal mining neighbors in the valley? Or say something derogatory about neighboring towns in the valley??

Come on, we know you MSUT do something to make your miserable self feel superiot to something.

So Wheezerdawg supports the REBELS in SYRIA????? BBGBWHAHAHAHAAH!

"In a video provided by the NYT, seven captured Syrian soldiers were made to lie face-down in front of their rebel captors who swore revenge and then shot the soldiers one at time in the back of the head: their bodies were then collectively pushed into a hole in the ground.

Earlier this week, Secretary of State John Kerry told members of Congress, "I just don't believe that a majority [of rebels] are Al Qaeda and bad guys." Instead, he believes only a quarter of the rebel forces are linked to Al Qaeda or the "bad guys."

BBBWHAHAHAHAAH! Kerry the IDIOT!!!!

Don't be an a%% wonderliar, Barry drew the line in the sand was already to go until overwhelming opposition FORCED him to go to Congress and get permission.

George Bush already handled that situation probably a long time ago.

Opie got CAUGHT trying to CHEAT the system just like his war on coal.

ERLIN — Russia says a deadly March sarin attack in an Aleppo suburb was carried out by Syrian rebels, not forces loyal to President Bashar Assad, and it has delivered a 100-page report laying out its evidence to the United Nations.

A statement posted on the Russian Foreign Ministry website late Wednesday said the report included detailed scientific analysis of samples that Russian technicians collected at the site of the alleged attack, Khan al Asal in northern Syria. The attack killed 26 people.

So are you SURE?? Assad has been WINNING on the ground with his troops, WHY would he gas his enemies???

Its the rebels who are losing.

I am against it, as I was against Iraq. I did think Afghanistan had merit because of Bin Ladin. Hope the Administration, if decides to proceed, goes in and gets out. I will point out, he made his case, asked for Congress approval, and didn't talk about Mushroom Clouds if we don't. Wonderwhy the right wingers believe anything different? Oh yea, tune into the non news and you will get it.........
