Aigoo: AKA, Secretary Clinton issues a strongly worded vague non-warning warning?
ManRay: keenerb: If Syria does use chemical weapons, i hope they stamp a big "Made in Iraq" marker on the side.Isn't that where all of the WMDs were sent to right before we invaded Iraq?
The Bestest: well, the UN just announced they're pulling all non-essential staff, so something's up
whither_apophis: Assad, you're getting a drone.
theorellior: internut scholar: Don't bring chemicals to a nuke fight.You know, if you think about it, if you have an area contaminated by chemical or biological agents, a nuke would probably be the best way to decontaminate it. The fallout might be a problem, but let's think out of the box, here.
ArkPanda: Look at it this way: chemical weapons are so nasty that neither Hitler nor Stalin wanted to go there.
Samsquantch: Syria is about to enter a world of pain.
Bontesla: Nightsweat: Remember this is the president who said he'd go into Pakistan to whack bin Laden if necessary even without their permission and did it.I don't hink I'd piss this guy off. He's no Internet tough guy.But I really don't see how an escalation on their part changes the factors the US has been citing as an excuse for not participating. For example - the US has cited geography and a disorganized group of rebels as (some of the) reasons why intervention is problematic. A Syrian escalation doesn't necessarily change the geography nor does it change the rebel group structure.
RoyHobbs22: Samsquantch: Syria is about to enter a world of pain.I can only imagine what's going to happen next.
SoupJohnB: /calmer than you, Dude//calmer than you
Spare Me: Assad can gas all of Damascus and Obama isn't going to do shiat. He's too busy here sticking it to rich white people.
keenerb: Isn't that where all of the WMDs were sent to right before we invaded Iraq?Yeah, that's my point. The shiatstorm that would then be unleashed on the FreeRepublics/DemocraticUndergrounds of the world would be amazing to behold.
whither_apophis: ArkPanda: Look at it this way: chemical weapons are so nasty that neither Hitler nor Stalin wanted to go there.Well the Red Army was downwind of a million Germans eating cabbage three times a day...

Profedius: Given Obama's track record he will likely stand back and do nothing preferring to allow other nations to handle it unless he is pressed into action like in Libya
keenerb: If Syria does use chemical weapons, i hope they stamp a big "Made in Iraq" marker on the side.Could you imagine if a made-in-Iraq chemical weapon was used by Syria to kill protesters? The internet might actually explode.
Mouser: The more barbaric and inhumane the Syrian civil war becomes, the better object lesson it serves to the rest of the Arab world on why they should quit farking around and join the 21st century.
Bullseyed: But remember, Bush getting rid of Saddam because he gassed his own people was wrong, but since Obama is doing it to Assad it is ok.
kg2095: Bullseyed: But remember, Bush getting rid of Saddam because he gassed his own people was wrong, but since Obama is doing it to Assad it is ok.I thought Obama was just an empty suit who isn't doing anything.Now, as for Bush the minor. President Bush led the US and its allies into a war that resulted in a six figure number of deaths and countless more lives ruined. Not to mention the damage that has been done to the US economy as a result of increased debt to finance the war. This was mass murder as well as economic suicide and it was all justified with what turned out to be bullshiat. Lies. It was never about Saddam gassing his own people - the rogue administration did not even try to make it look like that.This in my opinion makes Bush either a gullible fool who was duped by sinister elements of his administration, or perhaps he is sinister himself. Either way, attempting to equate Obama to the likes of Bush is extremely dishonorable. Anyone who does so should be ashamed.
