Abe Vigoda's Ghost: tylerdurden217: Where were all the anti-war isolationist Republicans when Bush wanted to invade Iraq?Voting to go into Iraq along with their Democrat counterparts.There are many Democrat members of Congress that are opposed to any military action in Syria. It's not just the Republicans.
lennavan: Can I get a list of dates where it's okay to do stuff and what is okay to do that day? I don't wanna step on any toes. I assume I should just take Sept 11th off.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: /you assholes are losing track of which dead Americans you want to drag through the streets
Princess Ryans Knickers: Ever consider the idea that Obama actually doesn't want to do anything about Syria and he's sabotaging the effort for political reasons?
soporific: Of course, this could be the first 2012 debate all over again, where he's just blowing it and letting the Republicans run the table.
sage254: Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: sage254: That's why I prefer Condi to Susan any day. Or Condy to John. Condi knew how to talk foreign policy and convince the world of what the White House needs to do is right (and no matter what side of the isle you are on -- you gotta agree with me on this.)The only person who is better than Condi is Madeline Albright and even more -- Henry Kissenger.You forget the US had a lot of credibility that Condaleeza Rice was able to burn clean through. Guess what? Now Kerry, et al, have none of that credibility to bank on.That's irrelevant. She was able to convince and get the world going with whatever the White House wanted. That takes a good foreign policy secretary. You can not blame her for setting the policy. That was a job of the resident of the White House and the congress.

Dr Dreidel: soporific: Of course, this could be the first 2012 debate all over again, where he's just blowing it and letting the Republicans run the table.Obama may have underestimated just how much a chemical attack acts as a motivator for intervention. It's weird that the GOP is suddenly anti-war (no it's not - remember Bosnia in the late 90s and the Sudan shortly after? Remember how Clinton wanted Congress to do more before the USS Cole and the embassy attacks in Yemen/Oman?), though.Pre-2003, the US is already in Syria handing out explosives like Halloween candy. Now, after Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, we seem to have learned the wrong lesson - like a kid who touches a hot stove, and decides "STOVE BAD", we may be falsely equating things based on an incomplete reading of the situation.// that said, I'm having a hard time convincing myself that shipping some Tridents to Syrian lands will help anything but the rubble industry
