I thought the headline was exaggerating.  But no.  Damned if he didn't say it.

Future leaders take note - this is how you do NOT go about convincing the American people that the US needs to take military action.

I'd still be shiatting my pants if the US military said "we're going to hit you, but just a little bit."
 
2013-09-09 12:43:59 PM
DO AS I SAY or I will flick your ears!
 
2013-09-09 12:44:49 PM
Have we sent them a sternly worded letter yet?
 
2013-09-09 12:45:42 PM
Wondering if that means they're not even going to bother with aircraft and just cruise missile the shiat out of ammo dumps.

If they were planning to send planes in the US military would also be whacking every radar, AA site, command and control center, airport, and communications center the Syrian military has.
 
2013-09-09 12:46:16 PM
Russia told Syria to do it, now Kerry is backing off those remarks...Whata dumbass
 
2013-09-09 12:46:20 PM
He changed his toon quickly.
The only "proportional" response to chemical weapons use is ATOMIC.
Everyone knows this.

Just the tip of an invasion.

They have had only three weeks to prepare for this attack, maybe we should give them a month.

This. I'll never understand why the entire world laughs at us even though, for better or worse, we could walk into almost any country and level it in less than a year.

/entirely against leveling any country
/but it's nice to know we could if push came to shove

A year?  We took Iraq apart the first time in a matter of weeks.  They were the 6th largest army on the planet.

Which is exactly why we should be swinging our military dicks around at the drop of a hat.

DAMMIT, FTFM

Unless one of those bombs goes off in Assads bathroom while he's taking a dump, there won't be much of a point to this.
 
2013-09-09 12:56:34 PM
does that mean we shouldn't believe it then?

Which is to say, the size of the Mexican army and plus they all deserted into the landscape, leaving their uniforms and boots along the highways. So yeah, we're the Omar Little of the planet.
 
2013-09-09 12:57:17 PM
They should fly my mother in to give Assad one of her "dirty looks." That'll put him in his place.

No wonder Bush won the '04 election.....  Kerry's a goob..

I think it would be great if they surender their chemical weapons. That would eliminate the rick of them falling into the wrong hands and weaken assad in the long run.
Plus then we wouldn't have to bomb them.

Won't work, obama really wants to bomb them, and assad will never surender them.

so, he will respond with a gas attack of his own?

They laugh at us because they know we won't do it. Not only that, but we will farking pay to rebuild anything we break. And we do this because we're idiots.
 
2013-09-09 01:01:26 PM
The headline should have read "conservatives find something else to complain about."

Exactly.  We'll end up killing some military personnel that Assad couldn't care less about.  That will not deter him one bit.

Yes, Iraq clearly negates every other war. We should also be treating them all like Iraq since it has worked out so well.

No, I think Obama might run with this. Gives him an out. I mean, I think Syria should be punished, but this accomplishes the goal of preventing another attack like that without putting us out there. Plus, with public opinion against this, they have to be looking for a "lotsa show, no go" solutions like the UN taking control with inspectors and whatnot.

You're right Mr. Kerry, I don't believe it - we'll get our collective D**s stuck in crazy... again.... just like we always do.

Lando Lincoln: I'd still be shiatting my pants if the US military said "we're going to hit you, but just a little bit."


I saw a bunch of "man in the street" interviews in Damascus recently and the attitude there was basically that if the US rained missile down on them they really wouldn't notice because they're used to war.

In fact, they jokingly refer to explosions as "music".

John Kerry is an idiot.  I never thought I'd say this, but can we get Hillary Clinton back as Secretary of State?

Don't get me wrong, I'm against sticking our noses in other people's business period. Syria can deal with it's own problems. I'm just saying it's a bit naive to think we won't smack any country that pisses us off enough. Especially with how much more evil the U.S. has become the past few decades.
 
2013-09-09 01:09:07 PM
John Kerry has always been this stupid. The fact that Obama picked him for SecState says a lot about Obama, but is it 'I'm stupid too' or 'squirrel!'?

On NPR the report had Kerry talking and he compared Assad to the Holocaust and Rwanda.  I'm sure the millions that perished there appreciate being compared to a run of the mill civil war.

I have come to the conclusion that one useless person is a disgrace.

That two become a lawfirm

And that three or more become a congress.

all they are really trying to do is take out Syria's anti- aircraft batteries, to clear a path for israel to bomb iran. Doing the bidding of their master as usual.

Somehow I still suspect that most of the world will consider "unbelievably small" airstrikes against a country an Act of War.

It's okay, guys! We're only going rape her a little bit!

Evil's of the United States(just off the top of my head)
Slavery
Internment camps
Segregation
Banana Republics
The Various tinpot dictators we set up during the cold war.
Nuclear testing on people

OUr government has been involved with awful things from the start.
