Time for Action in Syria has Passed

As Obama attempts to push the call for action forward I fear the window for a pertinent response has passed. There is a myriad of articles detailiing how Syria is moving key military assets into civilian populous areas (100% against the Geneva Convention and Laws of War BTW)and scattering troops and command and control elements to reduce the elements of an impending strike. To top it off the Syrian ambassodor was contrite enough to use Obama's campaign slogan of "Yes We Can" to allude to the need for peace in Syria. The cold harsh reality is anything we do from this point is an after thought. It is reminicent of "Wag the Dog" diplomacy in order to deflect attention from scandals and administration failures. As much as I wanted him to nut up and take a stand for what is right and decent; you do that when the deplorable actions occur. You do not wait until you have had more telegenic mouth pieces sell your stance and then say we have to do what is right. Leaders do what is right when it is needed. Now at the risk of talking out of both sides of my mouth...

I believe that chemical weapons were used however, the inspecters have been out of the country long enough to provide an initial "smoking gun" A couple of circumstances could apply; one being that they do not want to release until they are 100% sure because of what the response will be, the agent had disipated to the point that the results were not ironclad, or lastly, the were inconclusive...

With all of this said, the U.S. has stated that we know for sure that the weapons were used. If in fact that were the case, the classified proof should have been shared with the decision makers and action taken a year ago period. Anything that happens from here is once again an afterthought and a futile attempt to display his ability to serve as Commander and Chief.

yep...he talked himself into a corner months ago. He has to do something or, in street vernacular, risk looking like a punk. However, the time to do something has passed. Each day that something isn't done, whatever does happen is less effective. Too late.

I still think we will to be honest; just don't know how this is going to play out now...

http://coastalcourier.com/section/139/article/85263/ Re-integrating people that have “paid their debt to society” continues to be a tough issue to come to grips with.

What I mean is todays “average” young man aged 18-30 looks at things a whole lot different it seems. Mom and Dad’s basement is ...

I don't remember one time in eight years when Obama attempted to do that... Regardless still a Patriotic and Classy move if it is true.
