Proof of WMD should be required and WHO delivered them. Clever idea. Find the truth.

For punishment, put Assad aboard the Raging Queen for a nine-month cruse.

As the great Nancy Pelosi would say I thought we'd have to blow up Syria to find out what was inside it.

It disturbs me how strongly this administration is pushing for war (we all know it won't end with shooting a few missiles). I think there is far more going on in the background that they aren't being honest about. Why can't politicians for once be honest about something?

Folks, this is a fight over who will dominate future natural gas/oil sales to the EU. We have the “Islamic (Iran) and the Nabucco (Qatar) pipelines being built… The “Islamic” pipeline, connecting Iran’s South Pars field to European customers(passing through Iran, Iraq and Syria, to the Mediterranean, with a natural gas refinery and infrastructure to be built in Damascus). While the competing Nabucco pipeline, which is being constructed to transit natural gas to Europe from the Central Asia and Caspian regions. The Nabucco pipeline is set to traverse Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary, and end in Austria. **If Assad can be deposed, Turkey and Qatar would like the Nabucco pipeline to run through Syria (It will be cheaper to ship Natural gas/oil from Mediterranean Sea ports)...... ***Are we going to allow American blood to be spilled because of an Arab tribal fight over energy dominance? We should just walk away, we have huge natural gas deposits in the USA and are expected to surpass Saudi Arabia in oil production by 2020, This is utterly NUTS to get into another war!!!
