Horrible title?  Why, that's EXACTLY what's going on.

There's some good news

From now on, Obama will give a biannual stinkeye to Assad on television.

Oh, Jesus, Republicans, is there ANY tired, bullshiat cliche from the Clinton years that you won't trot out?

Obama doesn't intervene: "He's a feckless coward!"
Obama intervenes by providing weapons and intel to select rebel groups "Too little, too late!"
Obama intervenes by providing massive weapons assistance, and declares a no-fly zone: "Wag the dog!"

/History's greatest monster
//Yeah, he really has to start something overseas to distract from the YAWN, zzzzz....OH! the "scandals."

So where's that red line now, Mr. President?

Oh wait, look over there, I snooped on your email.

Is it me, or does every president with sinking approval ratings/scandels start some sort of aggression/

Confirmation bias. It's not just you, but it's also not true at all.

Ohh, political newsflash on the mainpage.  This will have all the  learned commentary of sheet metal workers watching ballet.

Drones perhaps?

Maybe we can skip the whole debate on the legality of offing US Citizens without due process, as well as 'collateral damage' produced by drone strikes by, you know, not guessing but aiming them at actual military targets that are gassing civilians?

kev_dog: Is it me, or does every president with sinking approval ratings/scandels start some sort of aggression/


Yep, really worried about those poll numbers. Why, at this rate, he might not be reelected!

Really? I'd rather us not engaged in another military conflict and be able to call the president a lying coward.

What left-leaning US press?

We don't have a left-leaning US press.

I read somewhere that they used Sarin, but I have a hard time believing that the Vulcans were involved.

It shouldn't be.  Assad should use whatever means necessary to quash the insignificant rebellion.  The rebellion after all is run by Islamic extremists who may have been gun-running in cooperation with our own CIA via the Benghazi special operations facility (aka Benghazi consulate).  I for one support Assad's methods to rid his country of extremist elements.  We need to learn that funding and supporting both sides in a war can only come back to bite us in our ass.

Re-posted from a different thread that I was in

Its none of our business

Every time we get involved in a damn war with the middle east we get farked over at the end. Let things progress naturally. We didnt send troops to fight off the Soviets, but we did provide the rebels a shiatload of aid. What do we get in return? Two planes into civilian buildings, one plane into a military target, and one did not reach its destination. This was an exact result of our actions in the 80s.

He did. It's called the ACA.

I'm not a repubtard nut but I have to admit that Obama has hurt his party more than helped it. The Democratic party has to understand their part in maintaining equilibrium in a 2 party system. He has done nothing nothing to contribute to our country.  Ironically he will never get that the 2 party system, for all it's faults is still the best system we have as of late and he is hands down no innovator.

Sounds like the new idea for a "reality" show.

I don't really want to get involved... but we probably should. Dangnabit.

Anyone else watching CNN?

They are reporting it like we are gearing up for war when for most this is just a passing news update

I got taken in by it. I fell for their fear-mongering.

You also forgot about the ACA.  :)

THIS. Take care of your own first. Get everyone healthy, fed and the economy on track. No one is going to say thank you.

You're right, that is quite a lot of words to say absolutely nothing.

And yesterday, and today, and next week.

And 20,000 high school kids with nothing better to do than downvote any rational conversation.

And boobies.

Good.  When your citizens rise up against you you put them down with whatever means necessary.
