    That is the typical answer Rick, for this political section, but how about a logical answer. Maybe even a good recommended solution.

    First off, I don't agree with any of our recent middle east madness, but it's all been Obama-logic. It doesn't have to make sense, or adhere to strict reason. That's the attraction of the situational ethics taught and practiced by all Liberals. It's a lifestyle that isn't encumbered by weighty morals or strict interpretation of any social or religious code.

    The money can come from Solyndra executives slush fund, or John Corzine's Swiss bank accounts. The source of OPM's really never matters to Zero, as long as he can maintain his fairytale life.

    McCain is just holding Zero's feet to the fire, forcing the analogy between Syria and Libya. The malignant media will protect Obama. Convincing China to invest will be much harder.

    Rick,

    That is kind of my point. We just spent 900 billion dollars on two wars getting rid of two ruthless people and their regimes, and it is still growing, now to $1.3 trillion. From what I can see the war in Libya, and removal of yet another ruthless dictator, cost an estimated $2.7 billion, though no final tally yet. Now Syria, we are going to go into to get rid of another ruthless dictator. Then you have to look at Iran, and possibly what that may cost if needed. Where does it end. Even dropping bombs, at a $1 million dollars a piece are going to add up quickly. Then we loose another couple of planes at $275 million dollars a piece. More Airmen, and Airwoman will be lost. Where does our involvment in world policing end?

    What I can't figure out, is the terrorists can get thousands of people to blow themselves up for nothing but a empty promise, and these people in these countries can't find someone to strap a bomb to themselves, and go take out a ruthless dictator. Think about how much cheaper that would be. I know that sounds ruthless, but it would be better than us spending billions and losing our military personal to accomplish the same.

    Assad is Iran's only ally so getting rid of him would be a big strike against Iran. That would be the reason to get after him, not to save the poor poor ragheads from killing each other.

    Everyone needs to stop watching Fox news and wake up to what is really going on in the world. Big Banks and Mega Corporations have taken over and they are running show. They are imploding our economies. It's by design. They have bankrupted nearly every country by signing us all on to their debt. We continue to print more and more money to pay for the things we can't afford. Everytime the federal reserve prints money it's creating it out of thin air and every dollar they print is another dollar added to our national debt. It also makes our money worth less by creating inflation. Once the banks have completely collapsed all of the worlds economies they will come to us as the solution to the problem which they created in the first place! All national soveriegnty will be abolished. It will be one world government run by the banks. Constitution and Bill of Rights. Gone! (not that there is much left of them anyway). People better wake up to what they are really doing. This whole war on terror is BS! It's a bill of goods being sold to you by the very people who are making billons off of these wars!

    If we start sending troops or air strikes into every little middle east country like Syria, and Iran and whatever little hell-hole in Africa, aren't we just playing into their hands? If we get spread out into 6 or 8 countries, what are we going to do if North Korea or China decides to get froggy and jump on us?

    Well, at least Rummy and Dumb Ol' George had it right. Some trophy.

    Hadn't even been in "command" since 2003.

    Troops, what troops?- I think the gentlemanly thing to do would be to donate a dozen or so cruise missles to Assad. Perhaps one might "go astray" and hit his palace.

    Of course liberals don't want to do that since they love all dictators.
