imagine for one second that we are wrong and this chemical provocation made al-Qaeda (buying a rocket). Now they will rejoice (“Ha ha, we again set their Sharia in another country handed blunt Yankees”).
And then they’ll think: “Is not the same to organize a bigger scam?” and buy and send another rocket with sarin (having given her “Russian”) on a U.S. base or city! Third world war? Of course then there is the CIA understand, but soldiers or civilians would die to have that time in great agony!

The weakness of the Western response to the use of chemical weapons will invite even worse crimes against humanity. We make the same mistakes over and over and over. A weak response in Syria will lead to Iranian nuclear blackmail that is orders of magnitude worse than that from North Korea.

For some it is stated to be, a day late and a dollar short.

Simple put this does not apply for Obama.

Months late, and trillions of dollars short. We do not have the will of the people for this one.

Brilliant new military strategy, tell the enemy exactly where and when you are going to strike so they can get everything out of the way so it won’t be damaged. WOW Obumbler you are soooo impressive.

I hope all you demoncratic koolaid drinking war mongers are ready to be drafted into the US Army if obama starts WW3 by attacking Russia’s allies, because current US troops are so worn out with multiple combat tours, that they are committing suicide faster than the enemy can kill them.

Dale Gavlak, 20 yr veteran Associated Press journalist and NPR correspondent has a BREAKING STORY of the admission of Syrian Rebels mishandling Saudi provided chemical weapons. If accurate, this story could completely derail the United States’ rush
to attack Syria which has been founded on the “undeniable” justification
that Assad was behind the chemical weapons attack. Dale Gavlak’s
credibility is very impressive. He has been a Middle East correspondent for the Associated Press for two decades and has also worked for National Public Radio (NPR) and written articles for BBC News. Infowars

From Dale Gavlak’s breaking news story regarding rebels claiming responsibility for the mishandling of chemical weapons in Ghouta: “From numerous interviews with doctors, Ghouta residents, rebel fighters

were responsible for carrying out the (deadly) gas attack,” Write Gavlak- Infowars

Acting tough, Obama drew a dared red line last year that was crossed and nothing happened.

Putin Warned and Obama Blinked!

A few weeks back Obama was closing Embassies and now he’s beating War Drums …. reminds me of the movie “Wag The Dog” with all the domestic failures and scandals?

UN investigator said on Swiss TV that “”Syrian Rebels Used Sarin Nerve Gas, Not Assad’s Army”

Read this link

Testimony from victims now strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin Nerve Gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior UN diplomat said Monday.

Carla del Ponte, a member of the UN Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.

But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons (CW), according to the BBC, she added that more investigation was needed.

“Assad can run but he cannot hide :)) I’m loving the anticipated strike by the coalition of the willing….This is a just response unlike the Iraq war.”

Assad supposed killed 1,000 people with chemical weapons. Saddam killed over 800,000 of his own people during his tenure. That does not include the casualties of his war with Iran, Kuwaiit, Gulf war, and the last time we went into remove him from office. For all we know the CIA staged the chemical attack. There is no UN proof, just like witht he WMDs in Iraq. If you take your head out of Obama’s lap and look around you might actually see what is going on.

Coalition of the willing?
Sure doesn’t look that way in Britain or across the Mid East.
Obama had to be dragged into killing Bin Lden, so I doubt he has the fortitude to launch even an angry word.
Iran forces a top secret stealth drone to land there and the best he can do is ask for it back?
Worried dead civilians? I wonder what the Iranians can do with that tech?

that was Obama’s plan all along. Tell them exactly what you are going to do so they can move everything. However, your really think this will stop there. They will move a church right in the path of obama’s feel good missiles and we will bomb a bunch of civilians. Way to go Obama, you just made some more enemies. But then, that was probably your plan also.
