Opinions please.

 

We live in confusing times. The Middle East is in flames. Whoever wins there will extend its influence over the rest of the region and the world.

 

America is the world's sole super power. The UN security Council is blocked by China and Russia. Isolationism or Intervention?

 

Opinions please.

I'm not sure that I agree that we are the sole superpower but I definitely think we should not strike Syria at this time by ourselves.

If hobummer really wanted to strike a blow for a "humanitarian" cause,

he should go after his own family in Africa who are committing atrocities against humanity there.

 

Syria is NOT our fight.

The Islamic factions……the Sunni’s and Shite's have been at odds for a long, long time. The differences they have helped to keep Iraq in turmoil. Throw in the Kurds, and many believe in time Iraq will split into a 3 state country, or perhaps even into 3 individual countries.

As for Syria?... what a mess. Chemical warfare anywhere, anytime, is a horrible thing, and, no one wins if an extended war erupts between the United States and Syria. It will not be good for the United States, it will not be good for Israel, it will not be good for Syria, it will not be good for Iran and it will not be good for Hezbollah. The party that stands to benefit the most is Saudi Arabia, and they won't even be doing any of the fighting. They have been pouring billions of dollars into the conflict in Syria, but so far they have not been successful in their attempts to overthrow the Assad regime. Now the Saudis are trying to play their trump card - the U.S. military. If the Saudis are successful, they will get to pit the two greatest long-term strategic enemies of Sunni Islam against each other - the U.S. and Israel on one side and Shia Islam on the other. In such a scenario, the more damage that both sides do to each other the happier the Sunnis will be.

There would be other winners from a U.S. war with Syria as well. For example, it is well-known that Qatar wants to run a natural gas pipeline out of the Persian Gulf, through Syria and into Europe. That is why Qatar has also been pouring billions of dollars into the civil war in Syria.

So if it is really Saudi Arabia and Qatar that want to overthrow the Assad regime, why does the United States have to do the fighting?

Someone should ask President Obama why it is necessary for the U.S. military to do the dirty work of his Sunni Muslim friends.

Obama is promising that the upcoming attack will only be a "limited military strike" and that we will not be getting into a full-blown war with Syria.

The only way that will work is if Syria, Hezbollah and Iran all sit on their hands and do nothing to respond to the upcoming U.S. attack.

Could that happen? Let's hope so.

But, if there is a response, and a U.S. naval vessel gets hit, or American blood is spilled, or rockets start raining down on Tel Aviv, the U.S. could be then be engaged in a full-blown war.

The vast majority of Americans do not want to get embroiled in another war in the Middle East, and even a lot of top military officials are expressing "serious reservations" about attacking Syria.

The Obama administration’s plan to launch a military strike against Syria is being received with serious reservations by many in the U.S. military, which is coping with the scars of two lengthy wars and a rapidly contracting budget, according to current and former officers.

Having assumed for months that the United States was unlikely to intervene militarily in Syria, the Defense Department has been thrust onto a war footing that has made many in the armed services uneasy, according to interviews with more than a dozen military officers ranging from captains to a four-star general.

For the United States, there really is no good outcome in Syria.

If we attack and Assad stays in power, that is a bad outcome for the United States.

If we help overthrow the Assad regime, the rebels take control. But they would be even worse than Assad. They have pledged loyalty to al-Qaeda, and they are rabidly anti-American, rabidly anti-Israel and rabidly anti-western.

So why would we ever consider getting involved? Because Obama drew a line in the sand????

This war would not be good for Israel either.

Syria has already threatened to attack Israeli cities if the U.S. attacks Syria. If Syrian missiles start landing in the heart of Tel Aviv, Israel will respond.

And if any of those missiles have unconventional warheads, Israel will respond by absolutely destroying Damascus.

And of course a missile exchange between Syria and Israel will almost certainly draw Hezbollah into the conflict. And right now Hezbollah has 70,000 rockets aimed at Israel.

If Hezbollah starts launching those rockets, thousands upon thousands of innocent Jewish citizens will be killed.

Even if Assad is overthrown, the rebel government that would replace him would be even more anti-Israel than Assad was.

If the Saudis want this war so badly, they should go and fight it. It is common knowledge that the Saudis have been bankrolling the rebels.

For now it looks like Obama has come to his senses. Of course one has to wonder what his real motives are?

He wants congress to decide? And that puts congress in the hot seat, the one Obama has now stepped away from.

One step into Syria is like sticking your foot in a glue pot. Once you are in you will not be able to shake it off.

 The US needs to stay the he**  out. Get busy and develop US OIL Deposits and break free from Mid East Oil.

    All this,goes without saying, bummer needs to be gone for ANYTHING to work right again.

We need to stay the hell out of Syria, not worth starting world war three. Use of chemical weapons are deplorable, let them figure it out as both sides fighting are our enemies anyway.

And saving our butts in the Revolutionary War - their navy made sure the British didn't control our coasts and free trade

and they fought the British for us

True. And the righties here know it.

But that aside, Obama sees a chance to make Syria another DC client state in the US economic empire - and he's going to take it.

It seems to be OK to bomb the rebels, kill women and children with cluster bombs, bullets and mortars.....

but not chemical weapons. No killing them THAT way! Kill them the OTHER WAYS.

What BS.

No we should not go in.

Anyway, we've already been in, funneling arms to the rebels, prob CIA in there too...

He won't. He can call an attack anytime without their permission.

We have made the ME "our problem" because we made the decision in the 1970's to fight rather than switch - from fossil fuels to renewable energy. Remember Tareyton cigarettes?

That is the full package answer.

Does it matter what we think? Really? The PTB will do whatever in your name (our names), make-up crap-n-nonsense and build a story to justify anything that is done. "Fact? Fact are on the moon!" said the Queen of Hearts. All is planned and plotted without a care for our opinion. Consent has been given, you just didn't know it!

In order to make good decision you have to have experience,

in order to have experience, you have to have made bad decisions.

Being a good leader is making a decision and stand by that decision and explain how you came to that conclusion.

Also accept and admit your mistake when you make a bad decision. That is a true leader.

Which we don't have a leader at all.

Obama has no idea what to do or how to do it.

So he decides to send it to congress and give the poles time to tell him what to do, he is nothing more than a pole swinger. Period.

Plus 1 if you agree.

Neg 1 if you don't agree.

No.  The iron is no longer hot.  

No.  Slapping Syrian hands will produce "clapping hands" by those wanting to go to war.

No.  It will be just to "save face."

No.  The consequences are too great.

No.  The "red line" is a self imposed line in the sand.

No. This POTUS would not know what to do with a retaliatory strike by Russia, China, or Arabian States. 

No.  One must know what to do before one throws a bomb into a room.

We should hammer Syria and be done with it.  No need for those who sit on the sidelines and holler about nothing.  Now i guess if the GOP controlled House does not get on board then it is an easy out for the President.  So when more people die due to the chemical wpn issue the blame will be on the GOP.  Instead of surgical strikes, crater the runways, hit command and control points and Military related positions.  I am sure Drones are flying over Syria as we speak.  If the congress says no, then the president has an out.  Now if you listen to these non military commentators who only complain about the President will continue to do so and offer only how bad he has run the country into the ground.  No solution only compliants.  IMO blast them and be done with it.  If they attack Israel with chemical wpns then they are asking for a Nuclear Strike.  None of the Arab states are that stupid this is my opinon and my information does not come from the off color sites or main stream media.
