“They would have known if they would have bothered to read what was in the ACA before passing it.”

“As have been suggested by several experts: the chemical weapons could have been deployed by the rebels -- not Assad.”

mpolly on Sep 14, 2013 at 09:24:54

“No. They stated proof Assad used them. Sorry, it is documented. I do like the new news they are targeting some way of getting rid of them. Then again it is just a plan. Good luck to all involved.”

“What if Kerry isn't telling the truth? Isn't that troubling to you?

How about if we united stand down from bombing Syria? Then we would be united.”

“Here's what Putin said just the other day about the Syrian government's alleged use of banned weapons:

"In our opinion, it seems absolutely absurd, that the regular armed forces, which are currently on the offensive and in some areas have encircled the so-called rebels and are actually finishing them off, that in these circumstances they would start using banned chemical weapons, while realizing quite well that it could serve as a pretext for applying sanctions against them, including the use of force."”

bassking on Sep 5, 2013 at 14:50:55

“The only interest Putin really has in Syria is the use of its seaport that allows Russia to dock its Navy to prevent it being bottled up in the Black sea in the Ukrainian port that Russia leases”

“Constructive diplomacy? Stop funding foreign al Qaida rebels?”

Weeweed Up on Sep 5, 2013 at 11:18:04

“Why do you think diplomacy hasn't been tried. This president is a whole lot calmer than the previous one. He doesn't react immediately when provoked.

There have been decades of misteps by the U.S. on backing the wrong people who turn on us. This president has given more thought to the matter when people on the right wanted to jump into action long ago in Syria.”

“Obama is desperate for change and launches another unconstitutional, meaningless war. This may be WW3.”

Jeffreymyers on Sep 3, 2013 at 13:37:35

“You might want to look up the definition for words like 'launches" [since nothing has been launched] and unconstitutional [since Congress has the war power pursuant to Article 1, Sec. 8, Clause 11] and if Congress authorizes it, it is, by definition Constitutional.”

“I have as well.  They really need to spin the regular banks off from the investment banks. Such a spinnoff would probably be accretive to both entities. The proverbial Chinese Wall within investment banking has always been a joke.”

“London, and the rest of the world are also discussing the immediate need of Glass-Steagall-like legislation. So your argument for being competitive goes out the window. Also, the original Glass-Steagall was in place when the rest of the world didn't have such regulation and it worked out great for Wall Street and the U.S.A.”

“Warren's bill must have been coordinated by Wall Street because they will be given 5 years -- FIVE YEARS! -- to comply. 5 years is an eternity amid bail-outs and coming bail-ins. We need Glass-Steagall right now and we need the original one (like Marcy Kaptor's House bill, HR129). It is the original bill Wall Street is afraid of, not Warren's.”
