    I'm not much for political threads, but this Syria intervention gives me a bad feeling. That article at the link confirms and expands my apprehensions.

    I sure hope they don't Iran and Lebanon will probably attack Israel and I almost think they want them to and it might be the beginning of WWIII

    If a terrorist group got hold of chemical weapons supplied by Syria, or Iran or N. Korea, and used them on the US (a scenario that has be postulated about) and we'd done nothing to prevent such a proliferation from happening, then what? just sayin'

    Chemical attack?

    Nonsense, everyone knows the real terrorist threat is terrorists getting machineguns and bazookas at gun shows without background checks.

    Everyone knows this. Everyone.

    Catpower , You hit the nail on the head.

    All Syria wants is to get us into a BIG war

    Guys urge your representative to vote no against a strike in Syria. Don't allow Obama to get his way. Financially, We can't afford it. Ethically, we can't help the same fanatics killing our kids in Iraq and Afghanistan (al Qaeda). Strategically, the risk of major war is very high not only to the Middle East but the whole world. Besides, AP already reported that the rebels admitted to the chemical attacks due to mishandling of equipment supplied by Saudi Arabia.

    I have heard both sides on this issue from retired military officers and so called middle east experts. I don't believe in an attack to save Obamas ego. More and more I believe is isolationism with a strong military to defend our soil if we are attacked. If Iran attacks Israel will defend and win and do a pre-emtive strike if necessary. I don't think Lebanon has the balls or firepower to attack Israel. ed nichols

    Ed, Lebanese army is not able to take care of the hundreds of al-Qaeda fighters that infiltrated through the border, they can't fight Israel. Hezbollah, is a lebanese military party that has been fighting with Israel and now is involved in the war in Syria. They only are supported at most by 30% of the Lebanese. The pretext of their involvement, following their views, is a matter of survival, same as Israel. Who knows how a madman with a huge firepower will react? One thing for sure, innocent civilians, from both sides, like always will be the ultimate casualties. There is a war going on between muslims, Shias and Sunnis we better not get involved as both are self proclaimed enemies.

    Our enemies are busy killing each other. Why is that a bad thing? We need to stay out of a civil war and let Syria decide without any intervention. In the end, no matter what we do there will be no change in the end result. They will still be fighting someone.

    Iran and the rest of those SOBs want us to attack Syria, and that will be their excuse to bomb Israel. We can't solve all the world's problems anyway. We have enough problems here, and he is doing a poor job of fixing those.

    How many countries came to our aid during our civil war? None. Let them fight their own battles.

    The middle east is, and has always been , a powder keg of hostilities. The best approach to the problem is to stay out of any military action in that part of the world.

    I am sympathetic to the terrible acts that go on throughout the world, but we can't afford to police the world. Our actions only cause people with hatred in their hearts to come here and attack our people.

    At least it takes pressure off of Benghazi, NSA, DOJ and Holder's investigation, IRS, etc., etc. He's back from a 30 day vacation, so he's working very hard.

    Five years ago or so I said the reason the libs wanted Obamacare is that if a war began here all would be covered and I offended some people here but look what's evolved. No consolation in I told you so.

    Time for a country in the region to step to the plate....

    Saudi Arabia has billions of dollars of USA, British, and French military equipment.

    If the situation needs be addressed with an air/missile strike....
