Please stay out. It is not our battle. It is terrible that Syria is doing this but we should not intervene.

So what is he going to do about it. As the picture exemplifies by the look on Hagel's face, this administration does not have a clue what to do. All talk, while the world and our country fall apart!! 2016 can't come soon enough.

Let's see, do we support the muslim fundamentalist-allied rebels or the iranian-backed dictator?

rtwall59 - what should Hagel do about it? How about absolutely nothing. As members of the right have told us, our country's broke. We cannot afford to be the world's cop anymore.

"we need more definitive proof". Thank you. Is it just me, or, does anyone else wish that would have been the motto the last time? Whatever, I'm glad to see someone is making sure BEFORE we act on that information. Colin Powell, are you watching and/or listening, sir?

Hey Canada, we are sitting out of this one. How about you handle it, okay? Great! Thanks!

raineyroo you are 100% correct. It is not our problem. Bring home all our troops in Europe, the Middle East, Korea, etc. Let the world eat each other while we protect our borders. Isolationism is what we need right now.
