R.A.Danny: Of all the times that Congress could choose not to be partisan hacks.....


Of there's one thing you can count on our GOP Congress to do, it's let us all down time and time again.

Weaver95: Um...did you even bother to read the article...?


yes. Did you?

Boehner says he supports the President. Then it goes on to say how he is going to have to sell it to his fellow republicans who are against it. The reason I ask you if you read it is because you are under the misguided assumption that the GOP wants this war. Where did you get this information? Right now there are more GOP voices decrying military action then are cheer-leading the President.

Let me take a wild guess, you can see into their hearts and know they really really want to bomb Syria?

Weaver95: cameroncrazy1984: Weaver95: kill a bunch of people at random

I think you underestimate smart weapons. We're not sending B-52s into Laos, here.

Smart weapons didn't get saddam. That came down to good old fashioned boots on the ground foot work. I very much doubt our booming runs would slow down the killing and violence in Syria. We are just going to make things worse.


To be fair, by the time we got around to finding Saddam it was just icing on a the cake, a nice a PR moment, but the Iraqi regime had been so thoroughly demolished that even if we'd never found him, he'd never have been relevant again.  We could have saved a ton of money in Iraq if we'd just hit it from above and through missile strikes, destroyed the military targets and infrastructure, and driven the Hussein family into hiding, and then let the Iraqis rebuild on their own.

Weaver95: cameroncrazy1984: Bombing Iraq will start WWIII!
Bombing Afghanistan will start WWIII!
Bombing Libya will start WWIII!
I swear I see that wolf right over there!

Eventually someone is gonna start bombing us back.


Eventually? Maybe so. But I would say that we're at a post-WWII minimum of likelihood.

There are a LOT of proxies involved here.  If Syria/Hezbollah launch a deadly attack against Israel--what makes you so sure the USA and Russia will stay out of it?

Syria and Israel have fought several wars since Syria became a Soviet/Russian client, and each time resulted in Israeli aircraft doing victory loops around Damascus. Russia ain't done dick in any of them. The real question is what makes you think that THIS TIME it'll be different?


Russia knows that if they start messing with Israel they'll face a lot of trouble from us, and it isn't worth it.  Russia is driven by money these days, same as China, ideology takes a back seat to profit, and they know that if it comes down to it doing anything that risks direct military conflict with the US is very bad for their future earnings prospects.

Who? Syria? You kiddin me? You think Russia's gonna try something?

I'd rather not find out. We already lost the twin towers and a good bit of the 4th and 5th amendments...what else has to go boom here at home before people realize action have consequences?

Give me a break with that crap, Weav. You know better.


I know that if we keep bombing the middle east then eventually things will blow up here at home.

Hey, bone head. You are the speaker of the house.
Not anyone important.
Shaddup and sit down, you farktwit.

So when the GOP leadership says they stand for something...like say bombing Syria...that doesn't mean the GOP is in favor of said action? If the GOP leadership isn't actually running the republican party than who is? I'd really like to know!

Those who do not believe that actions have consequences are those who got us in the economic disaster. Those who do not believe that every action has a reaction don't even believe in a scientific fact.

You are dealing with a closed mind, Weav. Cameron will never admit he is wrong.

with Obama now having the boehner and the cantor attitude to strike that ASSad, I'm now 99.999% sure it will happen now.

Ironic thing is most folks voted for Obama to stop wars not creating new ones.
 
2013-09-03 01:15:54 PM  

Shostie: Will you f*cking stop it with this WWIII sh*t?


Agreed.  WWIII happened in 1991.
 
2013-09-03 01:16:23 PM  
What are they thinking? They're thinking that it's running out. It's running out... and ninety percent of what's left is in the Middle East. This is a fight to the death.
 
2013-09-03 01:16:36 PM  
This isn't WWIII.  WWIII doesn't start until July 14th, 2014 in the aftermath of the US winning the World Cup Final.

There are a LOT of proxies involved here.  If Syria/Hezbollah launch a deadly attack against Israel--what makes you so sure the USA and Russia will stay out of it?


And what if Assad magically appears in the Oval Office and sits down at the Resolute Desk?  Does he automatically become President, and does Obama become President of Syria?

It's only ironic if you were dumb enough to believe him.

^^^This.  This is more like the time we fought USSR in Afganistan and ended up arming a religious terrorist regime ang got a Rambo movie.
 
2013-09-03 01:17:41 PM  
Obviously the lizard men and the crab people are the ones who want this war in the first place.
 
2013-09-03 01:17:44 PM  

freak7: Sorry hippies, you're on the wrong side of history again. Tom Cruise missiles engage!



So, just to get it right here, you do or do not support bombing Syria?
 
2013-09-03 01:17:49 PM  
Bush could of settled this years ago.  He could have made a a small part of the middle east a glass parking lot, and world order would have been restored.

So since Republican House Speaker John Boehner is siding with Obama on this one, does this mean we can add him to the "list of people who are conspiring against the GOP and therefore America?"
 
2013-09-03 01:18:42 PM  
Both sides are bad.

So, bomb Syria.
 
2013-09-03 01:18:56 PM

How about instead of killing Syrians we kill politicians instead?

Bomb us?  All they need to do is accept currencies other than the US dollar for oil.  Dump their Treasuries.  Whatever.  They could destroy us without firing a shot.

You will not get WWIII.  The apocalypse will not happen in your lifetime.  Your death will be a whimper and not a bang.  Deal with it.

You're trying to argue that Republicans are pushing for "peace" in the thread about Boehner approving?
 
2013-09-03 01:20:41 PM  
God damn it. Now I'm agreeing with Pelosi.
"I believe the American people need to hear more about the intelligence that supports this action,"

Good thing I have the day off, because only heavy drinking can let me recover from agreeing with the Female Skeletor.

It's all so sudden, it's like it came out of nowhere.

Tony Blair write in his memoir, 'A Journey,' that former Vice President Dick Cheney wanted to remake the Middle East after 9/11, and invade not only Iraq, but Iran and Syria as well. September 5, 2010

Dick was always absolutely hard-line on these things," Blair said. "I mean, I think he would openly avow this."

In his book, Blair writes Cheney wanted to deliver a message to nations he felt were supporting terrorists and terror organizations.


"He was for hard, hard power," he wrote. "No ifs, no buts, no maybes. We're coming after you so change or be changed."
