Wow, Sack finally took a shot at the President over something that is actually controversial. I'll even admit it was a good cartoon.

Good cartoon Sack! The original Peace Prize he received was not deserved but I think his win was a reaction from other nations around the world who thought that he might be able to change the dialog a bit and bring some peace particularly to the middle east. If heaving missles into Syria now brings peace to the area perhaps a future peace prize could be earned but not now.

The gov't of Syria appears to be winning the civil war, why in the world would they use chemicals when conventional weapons are doing the trick? When using Chemicals would bring the U.S. into the mix? The rebels gain by using chemicals and do you think they care one bit using them of a few women and children?

Meek criticism, and displaying a level of respect not shown to Speaker Boehner in the Sack cartoon of a few days ago.

How is trying to stop a dictator from using chemical weapons against his people inconsistent with winning the Nobel Prize for Peace?

I normally agree with Sack, but this cartoon is so wrong. Obama campaigned to become president, not to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. I believe it was a mistake to award it to a sitting US president, but to criticize Obama for it is out of line.

The "haters" are sure out today. Is it OK to use chemicals on your own people?
