How long ago has it been that it was confirmed that chemical weapons were used in Syria? What did obama state over a year ago about a "red line" being crossed? Now it appears that chemical weapons have been used again... This is a hard one as I am in no hurry to put our troops back in harms way. It is just ironic that we bombed the heck out of Libya for a lot less... Over 70,000 people have died in Syria to date. The reality is one, we don't have a whole lot of love for Syria to begin with and two, they have nothing we want. I just feel it becomes a morale issue and as usual with obama, a backbone issue. We are back to the same old "stop or I will say stop again" diplomacy. He made it "clear" that some type of response would occur. I realize that we have sent some types of aid but the question being, if it is validated that chemical weapons were used, where do we go from here? Thoughts

Well, here's something else to ponder.

Fox news....Fox and the GOP blame the POTUS for anything that goes wrong in this country. The hate is so deep they even blame the POTUS for Hurricane Katrina.

WOW! PN, how many family members are you trying to keep on WELFARE?

@Sheran,not the place for personal attacks so stay focused and professional.I was always taught when a person uses profanity or attacks you personally, they feel defeated. I'm sorry you feel the need to attack me on personal level. I'm glad, God has changed me and I don't feel the need to get revenge.

Sheran commented on Thursday, Aug 22, 2013 at 23:00 PM

I'm not attacking you... I ask you a question.

JM, I agree with the multi-national approach and do not think it should be a U.S. only endeavor. My frustration as an Old Soldier is having the means to stop the slaughter of innocents but we stand by and do basically nothing due to the politics of the situation. PN, not blaming obama, not his fault. His lack of resolve and continued failure to follow through with his "bold" statements and lack of credible action is his fault. His tenure as commander and chief has resulted in the majority of the world not being too worried if we make a threat of action. By the time we decide to act it if we even do, the situation is over or so seriously deteriated that the level of involvement needed is tenfold. At the end of the day obama like the rest of the democratic party does not have the resolve to make the difficult choices when it counts.

You should read this article that covers the news in that region of the world. They don't exacly show us the who truth in the US media. Or as I call them, The Lamestream Media! It may change your mind on what actually took place and what the US is really soing in that region.

President Barack Obama said reports of a possible chemical weapons attack in Syria this week signal "a big event of grave concern" and said he has shortened the time frame for the U.S. to decide whether it will act to halt the bloodshed in the country.

The last time he spoke of "action" was over a year ago; I wonder what a shortened timeline looks like? Now I will say obama is correct that we cannot act without UN and our allies being on board however...they have been on board for some time. As it stands right now boots on the ground and a no fly zone are not being considered. No boots on the ground I agree with but I think a no fly fly zone I think is a viable coarse of action.

The plantation mentality has taken over much of our government at all levels.

The non productive but dependant (on the taxpayers) liberals have severely weakened this once great nation.

They are much like termites.

JM if you feel froggy,,,,,then jump.

HMJC, I too am in no hurry to put our troops back in harm's way.

A few weeks ago Larry Peterson wrote a very interesting piece which was published in the Savannah Morning News.

Peterson's column entitled, America has lost it's way on foreign policy, was published Aug 3, 2013.

I urge all who read this to go back and read Mr Peterson's article as it makes a clear argument against us trying to be the world police.

I agree with Mr Peterson entirely.

timeontarget commented on Sunday, Aug 25, 2013 at 07:12 AM

"John Quincey Adams urged America to be the well wished of Liberty and Independence everywhere, but the custodian only of it's own."

Adams our sixth president, offered that council in 1821, it's still good advise.

Above taken from Larry Peterson Aug 3, 2013 Savannah Morning News.

We cannot continue to be the world police.

Our well intentioned efforts to police the world have brought us scorn and hatred from around the world.

That is why we experienced 911 and the death and destruction which came with it.

Simply my opinion.

"As a former military man"

JM please explain.

HMJC commented on Monday, Aug 26, 2013 at 11:34 AM

At the risk of being filppant I would not include Russia as point of my decsion making process. Frankly this another opportuity to thumb our nose at Putin and do some good in the process. The underlying stench of this is Russia is feeding Assad's war machine. As for obama, if you say you are going to do something, do it. You have zero credibilty in the world and especially in the middle east. His lack of action contiunes to embolded action against the U.S. and it is time for a reminder who really is the big boy in town. A stark reality is some regimes understand one thing; power, force, and military superiorty. Assad needs a dose of all three.

HMJC commented on Monday, Aug 26, 2013 at 13:29 PM

Ironically Syria's defense minister said any attack by the U.S. or others woud fail and would cause world unrest and strife. Basically we have Syria saying "bring it" because they still think at the end of the day we will not do anything credible. Still a hard nut to crack admittedly 8 years there was not a country in the world that would "invite" the U.S. to "bring it". Russia is trying to make this akin to the Iraq invasion but like I said; I think uncle Victor is making plenty of money off of the Syrian conflict and has not alluded to any human interest issues in its statements with the exception of a couple of vauge snipets. Leaders make the hard choices and stand by them and offer no appoligies for their actions or their countrymen. It would be nice to have a Leafer on our side.
