I hope I can stay up late enough to watch it. I'm still on GMT+1 time.
 
2013-09-10 08:26:01 PM
I'll be watching the thread, yet not watching the speech.

You folks please keep me updated with the absolute truth of what is being said so I can be an informed citizen.  I'm counting on you.

Or, do whatever you normally do and I'll figure it out.

Al Qaeda-linked group kills #FSA commander in Idlib, #Syria: Al Arabiya correspondentThat's the opposition. The moderate rebels have mostly been scared off by the extremists.So when you watch Obama tonight just remember your government wants to help Al Qaeda win a country on the eve of 9/11

Somebody told John Kerry that the #SFA linked Idlib KNEW.

I'm pretty sure we have said nothing about regime change by our hand. And it's our GOP friends in the senate *cough cough* McCain and Graham *cough cough* that have been begging Obama to intervene with more "boots on the ground" like intervention instead of the "missiles and airstrikes" that Obama's comfortable with

No. I am inentionally trying to get someone ruled up and have no real interest in really arguing that. In fact, I am going to go watch the US-Mexico game. Maybe drink a beer.

A bombing campaign facilitates the regime change. Saying it won't is a lie you tell yourself so you can support your team without feeling like a traitor.

Obama started earlier than announced. He walked up to the Presidential lectern with a doobie hanging from his lip, he gave a Nazi salute, said: "Allahu Akbar" then farted in his own hand and "buttercupped" a nearby White House staffer.

I'm as confused as the next guy.

So I've turned on the TV for this and Wolf Blitzer just pointed out that the president has to have his speech vetted by the intelligence community to make sure he does not disclose something he ought not to.  Thanks, Wolf

And the last thing Pooty Poot wants is a regime change. If that happens, it's hello Arab gas pipeline to Europe, goodbye Gazprom monopoly on gas sales to Europe, goodbye Russian economy.

Serious question, because I'm not that up on my history:

Did we enter WWII against the Nazis because "OMG they're committing genocide and we have to stop them" or because "they're kicking the crap out our allies"?

We didn't do anything about the genocide. At all. Ever.
But we firebombed Dresden and used two atomic bombs, so there's that.

Germany 'Declared War'.

Countries used to do that before the 'Korean War'...

Actually it was because they declared war on us, after we declared war on Dainippon (The Empire of Japan), after their sneak-attack raid on Pearl Harbor.
