  •  I hope the President (5+ / 0-)

    hasn't painted himself into a corner on this. I don't think the country can take another war in the Middle East.

    •  I do not think the people (6+ / 0-)

      of this country will stand for another war.  We are war weary and the poorest of our citizens are the ones who are making the greatest sacrifices and then coming home in a box or to little govt. support.  It is unconscionable that we have people in Congress telling the American people that they must give up what little safety net is left while ginning up for another treasury draining war.  

      Remember Shock and Awe?  War is not a surgical thing where we cleanly intervene, remove the bad guys, and leave without casualties.  Real people die, real people are maimed, and nothing is solved.

      Enough is enough with the wars.

        as long as we think we're winning handily.
