So let's get this straight: no credible or corroborated facts, but the administration "believes" Syria has used Chemical weapons? "Sad" is perhaps the only word available to describe this kind of pre-war mongering propaganda by an administration that vowed to be the "most transparent", and is led by a Nobel peace prize winner. The disclosure, made by the White House in a letter to Congress and by U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel to reporters, moves the United States closer to declaring that Syria has crossed Obama's "red line" on some kind of deeper involvement in the country's civil war." So what happens when the Nobel peace prize winner decided to send an armada of remote controlled killer planes to liberate an army supported by Al Qaeda, with just a few thousand women and children as collateral damage ? The Obama administration has ordered additional U.S. troops to Jordan for possible chemical weapons control, humanitarian response or “stability operations” in Syria. "Sounds like Russia is still saying "neit" ? Or It's Bush's fault.

Chances are they'll still be evaluating by the the time the blamer's second term is over. Same for th murder of our people in Benghazi.

IF I were Syria, N Korea, Venezuala, or Iran I would have no fear of walking all over Obama.

Oh how I long for the years when we had a strong & decisive leader who knew what to do in similar situations like this. Heck, GW says we'll invade Afghanastan and topple the Taliban and establish a stable democracy. Oh wait, I think we'll invade Iraq, topple that awful Sadam, gain control of the wmds, and we'll pay for the war with Iraqi oil revenue. Oh wait, won't that divert our military resorces from Afghanastan. But wait, there's no oil revenue and there's no stable Iraqi democracy so we can't leave and we'll just put the costs on the credit card. Yep, now that dern Obama wants to think before getting involved in Syria and maybe he will be so cowardly as to only act as part of an international effort. Oh, how Repubs long for those good old days!
