You never know... congress might vote against action for no other reason than because its what Obama wants.

This stuff is so funny until someone bombs us. Then it's different. Remember all the fun we didn't have on 9/11?

But that would be cool. Help reduce global warming while warring.

"It's about leveraging the assets to have them in place should the capabilities of the carrier strike group and the presence be needed," said the official.

That is some primo bullshiat talkin' right there folks.

I haven't been following this too closely, coz the WAR ON TERROR "debate" from a decade ago has broken me.... but the other day I heard Obama saying the USA has to bomb the crap out of Syria coz, y'now, nerve gas, own people, EVIL DICTATOR, wahhgarble.

The video evidence I've seen has been sketchy. I've seen plenty of faked "dead citizens" videos from the region in other conflicts, so sorry, I'm not totally sold.

Even if it was true....

** If you were a rebel leader and you thought there was a good chance the COALLITION OF THE WILLING helping you out with F18s, gunships, and a few days of smart bombing and whatnot, IF only you release some nerve gas on a small pocket of the innocent populace....
** Then wouldn't that be awfully tempting?
** It's not like the rebels ever turn out to be the GOOD GUYS, so why assume they wouldn't pull a stunt like this?
** And after all, the dead citizens died for a cause and get their 72 free goals in Paradise or whatever the going rate is.

From my far away, not-super-informed perspective America seems either strangely gullible or strange gung-ho on this whole thing.

So all this time people were wrong.  They were saying he was a secret muslim, but instead this whole time Obama is a sleeper al qaeda  agent since he's going to put the US military in harms way to help his fellow muslim brothers in al qaeda overthrow a government to install his brand of theocracy.
 
2013-09-02 06:59:45 AM  
Or in other words, we re-routed a carrier like we always do when there are tensions in the world.  Not saying we wont do anything, but I bet the carrier will probably not be the one that strikes.  I think that this will be a limited action from the cruisers.

FTA: WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Nimitz and other ships in its strike group are heading west toward the Red Sea to help support a limited U.S. strike on Syria, if needed, defense officials said on Sunday.

okay, so essentially what they're saying is, don't make us do this...

not "guess what, we're going to bomb syria"

I agree with what you're saying. If there comes any evidence that the sarin gas used was definitely a product of a state-owned chemical weapons facility, I will probably change my mind. But it's not actually hard to produce sarin gas, and in fact the Syrian rebels have used sarin gas in attacks not so long ago.

Just because there's a Democrat in office doesn't mean that the rest of the government and military aren't going to act just as they did under Bush.

The shocking thing is if Obama actually changes his mind and do it against Congressional will. Congress voting something down has hardly ever stopped him.

It's not like those carriers have anything better to do.  Either move them closer to some place they might be used, or leave them to travel randomly.

Even if it was true, they didnt attack the US !! WTF ARE WE GOING IN ? To be the world"s policeman?

I'm shocked at the usual braindead liberals on here that are NOT screaming bloody murder and calling Obama Hitler.... oh wait... it's OK when a DEMOCRAT president does this.

Mind you all the US was not even attacked.

At least with Bush, the Taliban came from Afghanistan and proven so which is why NATO actually went into Afghanistan.

LOL... it's OK when the Dumocrats do it though....

Douche, the fact that warmonger/taxevader Kerry is trying to even justify it... this is the same loud mouth along with Ted Kennedy who compared Bush to Hitler. Stop talking with your hole, liberal.

i think it's because we're a "one or the other" country...  i really think the tea party needs to form, the green party needs to recruit, libertarian shouldn't just be an add-on...  let the two-party politics go...  people are (r) (d) or (i) and like they say a vote for (i) is probably a vote against the (r/d) who's up for election.

if our two party system went away, and people just ran on their own merits, we'd have a MUCH better government.

As pretty much everyone with more than half a brain is saying, obama should have asked Congress for a vote before he made the threat.  Drawing "red lines" with power you decide later that you don't have is what a guy would do because he's new to the job and knows fark all about foreign policy.  He should have asked Congress for the authority to act before making the threat against Syria.

Now he's in the position of looking weak and foolish.  Wonder why that is.

Obama has already been sending his Secretary of State around to say that they want Congress to vote, but they'll just ignore it if they don't vote the way they like.

Kerry - "He has the right to do this no matter what Congress does."

During the Bush years, the term NEOCON was the label applied to anything and anyone that wanted to go after Afghanistan and compaisons to Hitler by the Libs. Now the shoe is on the other foot wnd suddenly party doesnt matter.

So no, you're not.

Also, this may come as a surprise to you, carrier groups can't teleport.

The President gets political cover from the Congress when they vote no.  Then he can say 'my hands are tied, democracy, etc.'

80% of Americans polled wanted congressional approval.
