  •  ...why?... (5+ / 0-)

    ...if we do anything ourselves what good will come? Russia, Hezbollah and Iran keep flying in arms to Syria to support the Government.

    Iran stated they'd bomb Israel immediately if we do anything. Britain's Parliament for the first time since WWII voted down the Prime Minister's decision to do something.

    France is the only country that has verbally said they would be with us.

    What do we do? The consequences would NOT stay in Syria. This is a clusterfucked situation.

    Congress won't let Obama do anything because the House will block everything he wants to do...even if they actually like it...it's their thing.

    I don't see us doing anything that could really make a difference other than exploding that whole region...and making sure Russia and Iran will then go crazy making sure Assad remains in power.

    THEN AGAIN, the fundies want Armageddon to happen...so maybe enough Tea Baggers in the House would vote for a bombing (of what) the airports I guess...

    Ignorance is bliss only for the ignorant. The rest of us must suffer the consequences. -7.38; -3.44

    •  First there is now a further delay (Sept 9th) (5+ / 0-)

      before a discussion even starts.
      Then if  it is close or turned down, Assad & others can laugh at all the bluster we made, with zero action.

      Not that action would have solved anything, but now we are totally irrelavant.

      Further, Obama has now given back some power to Congress, for future presidential limited actions.
