I say if we start another war lets take out canada...lots of natural resources up there.  Im sick of their secure borders and Frenchie talk...and the fact thet can vacation in Cuba.


So long as we get Poutine out of the deal.

So what is the proof that Assad did this?  How do we know this happened by Assad and not the rebels or Al-keda in a setup?

That is what I would like to know.  Them saying we are 90% sure it was Assad is not good enough.

I have a nagging question. If Assad has chemical weapons where did they come from?

The same way that we "knew" that Iraq had WMDs and that Saddam Hussein gassed his people years prior.

Those were two BIG "justifications" for the Iraq war.  If it worked then, it ought to work now, right?

Even if you knew 100% he did it, is it an issue the U.S. needs to solve?  Should this not be an international issue?

To heck with the UN!  We need to go at it alone, and we're not accountable to THEM!  This is the USA!   >:(

That is what should precipitate our strike to the north....they are clearly using biological warfare on us. I dont know about you but that is certainly casting the first stone in my opinion.

 I literally took the "justifications" for that war and inserted "Syria" in place of the other names.  So, assuming that you did support the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, then you couldn't possibly support those wars, based on the "justifications," while not supporting the effort in Syria. 

The perfect proof is to look at rank and file (non-politicians) democrats.  You have to look LONG AND HARD to find one who supported those wars, as well as the effort in Syria.  Perfect consistency, based on the "justifications."

I'll bet that you did.  Hit a nerve, eh?

At least democrats have been consistent regarding this since 2001.    ;)
