Cletus C.: Kyosuke: If only we'd put this much thought into Dubya's motivations regarding Iraq before sending so many of our young men and women to die there.

We put a lot more thought into that. Then Congress voted to let the war birds fly.

If by "thought" you mean "lies," sure.

groppet: Obama should have never give that "Don't cross this line" BS about the use of chemical weapons. Well they caled his bluff and made him look bad in front of his woman, so now he has to cut a motherfarker. All I wonder is will it be a "symbolic" bombing where a few radar stations, bridges a airfield or two are bombed. Or will they go after the chemical weapon stockpiles.

/would rather not be involved


They'll at least flatten some empty government office buildings after notifying the Syrians that those are our targets. That'll show 'em.

Obama: I want to bomb the crap out of Syria
GOP: We must stand against you. You know, it's sort of our thing.
Obama: But they used chemical weapons!
GOP: Yeah, but we really hate you!
Obama: If we don't follow through, we will lose credibility!
GOP: Sorry, we hate you more than we love our country.
Obama: Listen, I want to bomb BROWN people who aren't Christians!!!!
GOP:   Ohhhhh.  Why didn't you say so! That's a horse of a different color!!!!

An odd thing to post in a story about the Republican speaker supporting Obama.


Boehner was against it before his meeting. I am guessing this is how Obama convinced him.

I think the LAPD's hunt for Dorner involved more firepower than Grenada and Panama combined.

Also, if you're going to count Iraq as Parts 1 and 2, then you have to count Yugoslavia as two -- "Bosnia" and "Kosovo."

[believeinreason.com image 460x288]

Remember when?


Yes, because Syria is EXACTLY like Iraq. Except Syria was/is backed by Russia instead of the US and got its chemical weapons from Russia. While in Iraq the west helped with their WMD program/encouraged it. Plus Kerry was a senator during that photo, not part of any administration. I am skeptical of striking Syria as anyone, but comparing Syria and Iraq doesn't add up when you look at the facts. Those are two completely different situations.

Kerry ate dinner with Assat.  Nevermind that that was probably before civil war broke out and there is likely no connection whatsover to current relations.  Kerry at some point in time sat at a table with him.  Therefore threatenting remarks/deals/conspiracies/wars were planned.

/anyone else like that one?  "Assat"?  Say it fast.

1. Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. As Germany and Japan were allies, Germany declared war on us the very next day. We had a reason to be in the war because they attacked us first.
2. All war is bad and should be avoided as much as possible. Treating wars equally ensures that we have the right perspective in avoiding armed conflict.
3. Yes, blame game is important in American politics
4. No, there are good people in the political parties that don't want war

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!


The only reason Iraq I did not start a larger regional conflict is that we had troops and other assets on the ground (Patriot Missiles) to minimize the threat against Israel, and we had the diplomatic ties with Israel to get them to agree not to retaliate against those attacks that did get through.  Also, in Iraq I the threat of an escalating conflict was actually greater without U.S. involvement, because Iraq had completely misread (or ignored) the likely response of other regional powers to their invasion of Kuwait.

Iraq II, Iraq no longer had the resources to threaten Israel or other U.S. allies (although ironically, we claimed they did prior to attacking, so . . . yeah).
Afghanistan can't credibly threaten Israel or other U.S. allies.
Gaddafi's Libya, strangely, was actually getting support from Israel so no threat there.

Syria has a credible ability to directly attack Israel in retaliation (how much they could do while their forces are occupied with the rebels is open to debate) and Iran has similarly threatened to retaliate against Israel.  Whether or not either country would actually be stupid enough to do so (especially at a time when Egypt would be unlikely to back an attack on Israel) is again, open to debate.

But there is certainly a much larger risk of this escalating into a regional conflict than there was in the cases you mentioned.
