    What is going to happen ?
    Is the USA gonna get involved?

    Why?

    Gas aint hi enough?

    Maybe Im naive , but it looks to me like our enemies are killing each other. I would let em have at it.
    Why cant those countries in the area step up, if they want the fighting to stop in their neighborhood?
    Why USA.

    If we were allowed to harvest our own oil, we wouldnt need em anyway.

    Im not for taking sides over there.

    I believe for once, we should take a back seat to our allies, who swear to take control IF the US fails to take action soon. It's time other countries hate someone else!

    It'd sure be nice if good sense like I see here could make it to DC ... I think it would probably suffocate somewhere just north of Fredericksburg.

    Well, we just took our first step toward that DooDoo.

    The senate/sub committee just voted YES to pass resolution to use force in Syria.



    Here we go again.

    Anybody like Charlie Daniels?


    Charlie Daniels Column: A Citizen’s Take on Syria

    by Steve Foley on September 5, 2013
    [​IMG]
    In my soon to be 77 years as a citizen of the United States of America, having lived through Japan’s sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, the dark days of WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Watergate, 9/11 and all the other serious and profound events our beloved nation has been involved in over the last three quarters of a century, I have to say with all sincerity that I have never seen a president as confused, befuddled, impotent, insincere and as out of his depth as Barack Obama has become in dealing with the Syrian issue.
    When you’re the leader of the free world, you don’t make statements you can’t back up and you don’t draw lines in the sand, watch your enemies cross them with impunity and go off and play a round of golf.
    [​IMG]
    Obama painted himself and the nation into a corner with his “red line” statement and I truly believe he thought he would have unilateral international and domestic support only to find himself standing alone in the spotlight with egg on his face and a ticking political time bomb in his hand.
    I don’t believe he ever had any intention of going through Congress and only decided to do so when he was left without the support of traditional allies and the disdain of a war weary American public who have begun to feel that America cannot be the international police force who has to bear the brunt of every catastrophe.
    I think Obama is taking the vote for military authorization to Congress to bail himself out, to buy some time, somebody to share the blame if all goes wrong. Obama had already positioned war ships. All that was left to do was give the order to fire the missiles and at the 11th hour, after being rejected by the British parliament and put off by the French, he started having second thoughts and reached for the life preserver.
    I, for one, am glad that Obama – for whatever reason – political expediency notwithstanding, did not facilitate the missile attack as it would have been largely symbolic and cosmetic and as he had given Assad enough warning to move the weapons out of harms way would have done little if anything to rid the world of chemical weapons.
    It’s not that I think nothing should be done about weapons of mass destruction no matter where they’re used in the world, but I believe it’s not just the responsibility of the United States to enforce international law. If the civilized nations of the world shirk this duty, why should they think America should take on the job by itself?
    America has done enough “sending signals”, symbolic gestures, getting involved in situations that don’t threaten our national interests or that of our allies.
    America’s leaders should guard their tongues well and not issue spur of the moment reactions and empty threats. Our bite should be a lot worse than our bark and a presidential warning should be a dire and solemn caution, issued only once and followed up with swift and decisive action, not some half-baked puff of bravado that nobody really takes seriously.
    What little bit of credibility America had in the Middle East just went out the window Friday afternoon, as a president who let his ego overload his common sense backed down from a tin horned dictator of a third world country, or at least that’s how it’s viewed in that part of the world.
    The mettle of a president and the people he surrounds himself with is not proven until push comes to shove. This nation has entered a new phase in the war on terror and our relativity in the rest of the world and the road is going to be long, rocky and dangerous.
    It remains to be seen how this embarrassing situation will play out. Will the president seek the council of the more experienced advice available to him in Congress? Or, will he remain defiant and continue to go it alone.
    You’ve cost America a great deal this past week, Mr. President.
    How much more can we take?
    What do you think?
    Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.
    God Bless America.

    Our government couldn't give a rats petootie about people in Syria. Our bombing the oil refineries in Syria is IMO proof of that. Obama couldn't get the American people to back going to war in Syria which is why we had Bengahzi. The so called rebels had to be supplied with armors to handle what our missing troops couldn't do. Syria is in line with Russia and Iran. Turkey wants to run an oil pipeline across Syria which would hurt Russia's control of oil and natural gas to the EU. Syria, Russia, Iran, China and others are planning to get off the dollar as the world reserve currency. IMO don't believe the propaganda from the government controlled mass media here in the US. about anything going on in the world.
