Hah, you've got to be kidding subby. TFA clearly states the senate resolution specifically denies the opportunity for Obama to put boots on the ground, unless he uses the "loophole" in the poorly structured legal language written into the bill to push his powers beyond the scopw of what was duly authorized by congress.

And we all know that no modern president would unilaterally decide to strike a foreign nation and potentially embroil us in a long protracted war, nor would a modern president use the opportunities presented by poorly crafted language to expand the powers of the executive office.

I hope the first platoon that goes into combat in Syria consists of the sons and daughters of US Senators. And that they are led by the 1rst Regimental British Petroleum Combat Engineers.

clkeagle: Well, clearly they are serious about getting the national debt under control.

No doubt our fiscally-minded Senate included language that imposes a progressive war tax to pay for any escalation in conflict... right?


Kerry said the Arabs were going to finance it

if they hurry, they can get there in time to celebrate 9/11 with their Al Nusra buddies, and raise a glass to their mutual friends Osama Bin Ladin and the Mullah Omar.

Seriously, the fact that naive, ill-informed peons who joined the services to attack Al Quaeda might be fighting alongside their affiliates in Syria is just farkin full retard.

Technically, the entire armed services, from private all the way to the top, will be in breach of the Patriot Act.

Old and busted: War on Terror.

New hotness: War with Terror.

cptjeff: Some of us like to actually weigh the facts and situation at hand before immediately hysterically proclaiming that things specifically prohibited in a bill will inevitably happen despite that prohibition.

"I don't want to take off the table an option that might or might not be available to a president of the United States to secure our country," Kerry told the committee.
But when Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, the top Republican on the committee, told Kerry he "didn't find that a very appropriate response regarding boots on the ground," Kerry quickly, and repeatedly, backtracked.
Kerry said he was simply "thinking out loud" and raising a hypothetical situation, but he did not want to leave the door open to sending ground troops to Syria.

but i mean, he's just thinking out loud about how we might eventually need to put boots on the ground past this specific authorization, so don't worry.

I heard Obama was going to strike Syria but then CNN called and told him Wolf Blitzer had scheduled time off for vacation, yada yada yada, you can't start a war without Blitzer yada yada yada so everything is on hold until Wolf gets back from holiday and CNN gets the war coverage opportunity that they paid for.

Because if you don't think that, you are only doing it because you hate Obama.

I think "smacking a biatch" is sexist.  You're getting you *ists mixed up.

Also, the ASPCA might get after you for hitting your dog.

vudukungfu: Well, come on all of you, big strong men,
Uncle Sam needs your help again.
Forgot basic war winning theory-a
Way down yonder in Syria
So put down your books and pick up a gun,
We're gonna have a whole lotta fun.

And it's one, two, three,
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I ain't got no fear of ya,
Next stop is Syria;
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Come on Wall Street, don't be slow,
Why man, this is war au-go-go
There's plenty good money to be made
By supplying the Army with the tools of it's trade,
But just hope and pray that if they drop the bomb,
They drop it on the Arab-cong.

 /Apologies to Country Joe Mac Donald.


Don't apologize. It fits, really well.

/too well.

So let me get this straight.  We are going to Syria to attack them for using Chemical Weapons on the Rebels...basically assisting the Rebels in their fight against the government and the Rebels are: Al Qaeda the very group that has been responsible for multiple attacks including attacking the United States... incidentally this is the same Group we supported in the Afghanistan/Russian dust up and they attacked up later using the training and ideas we gave them...so I guess we've come full circle now!
