Your myopia and fear to confront are why dog fighting clubs flourish. Ditto as the reason for100,000 dead in Syria

What a great idea, let's finish the investigation and let the United Nations inspectors have sufficient time to determine whetherSyrian military forces have used chemical weapons in Syria's civil war,

My next suggestion is to let the so called Arab League and the countries surrounding Syria deal with Syria.

The U.S. needs to stay completely out of the picture.

Here is the biggest reason, our interventions in the middle east have not turned out well have they?

As a matter of fact, the countries where we have intervened now hate the U.S. despite the loss of American lives and the enourmous financial and military costs the American taxpayer are now responsible for.

DON'T be disingenous and say ambiguity is the cause of your doubt to take action
Tell it like it is. You don't really GIVE a damn that all those civilians died in na nerve gas attack, It jibes MUCH better with your unempathetic nature, no tongue in cheek necessary

I know! If we wait long enough to do anything, nobody will give a damn anymore! JUST like Sandy Hook! Just keep thinking this too shall pass or hide behind ambiguity like a coward

Both sides which are fighting are our ENEMIES. Why are we indicating we are going to meddle in that disaster? Next we'll see a speech from Kerry before the UN attempting to justify our involvement. NO LEADERSHIP is the problem.

You are correct, my opinion is that we let them kill each other and watch from afar.

That is a brutal way to see it but it is true. Our country does not have the ability nor the desire to enter into that conflict and if the President goes ahead without Congressional approval it will be a big mistake on his part.

Warbama is planning an attack. The UN inspectors have until the jets are fueled to get out. Strike fast so the UN cannot confirm there are no WMDs, er... chemical weapons.
11:22 AM on 08/28/2013
the UN confirmed WMDs WERE used.

that is not the point, nor the point of the investigations. The point is: WHO USED the WMDs? What if who used the WMDs were the rebels supported by the US and the Arab League? Why was Syria so fast and open in allowing UN Inspectors to check everything out??? I think the Syrian government is certain the rebels used it.

But if UN concludes the investigation and proves it, that info will reach west´s media. And public opinion will turn AGAINST the rebels.

So the US must strike the shia government down and implant a sunni government BEFORE the investigations conclude.

So- it's an open ended schedule that could take a year?-- and if so oh well? Is THAT what he is saying?

It seems to that this is Iraq all over again. Cant us the gulf of Tonkin, there is no naval fighting. Fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me. Now if only kerry goes to the UN with a speech that Asad used chemical war fare I will be abolutely right.

Miley Cyrus and her Teddy Bears have more credibility than U.N. Inspectors. Lets send her over there.

The " U.N. Inspectors" have more credibility than the US Government... The US government has a credit problem in its own backyard...
12:19 PM on 08/28/2013
I agree about the credit problem, but i stick to original statement. Miley and the troupe of dancing teddy's would be much more effective than U.N. in bringing this conflict to a close. If it wasn't for U.S. the U.N. would have had to shutter its doors years ago. Hmmm.....that doesn't sound to bad actually.

Might as well hold off. We have a Congress still on vacation so this must not be that critical. Congress is probably waiting around for the President to call them back before deciding to take the initiative on their own. If this is a major concern to America, I would think our legislators would see it as a priority to return and unify as a party for an agreed upon action.

None whatsoever. When we have a critical situaton and they are just blowing wind from the sidelines, who can have confidence in them.

Hmmm, I guess everyone has forgotten - oh wait, this was NEVER in the media- the elaborate tunnels from Iraq to Syria the first-wave of U.S. Marines found. These tunnels carried the chemical weapons out of Iraq into Syria...funny how chemical weapons showing up miraculously in Syria NOW and no one has connected the dots? So, how wrong was the former administration? Sneaky Syrians....

We lost 38,000 Americans last year because of gun homicides. Yet what have we done to reduce those numbers? The United States can't even pass a simple strong nationwide gun background check or close used gun and gun show loop hole and straw man purchasing problems. 38,000 Americans died last year over gun violence, yet we see a few hundred on the other side of the world die over a chemical attack and we are ready to go to war? Really?
