  •  We have nothing. This whole thing is wrong. (12+ / 0-)

    First, I don't believe for a second that Assad used chemweaps. He was winning, there was no need. The rebels (and there are countless groups with countless connections) stood the most to gain from this.

    Second, there are no 'good guys' here to help, both sides are awful. So we have no moral reason to go to war.

    Third, we also have no legal standing to go to war. No UN resolution, no self-defense claim, it's looking unlikely that our elected officials will even have to go on record to vote for or against a war that only 9% of Americans are in favor of.

    So the government floats some destroyers over, we make a mistake we can never take back, and we're footing the consequences for the next 10 years. Without the consent of the American people.

    Reminds me of the NSA: 'Just trust us, you fucking morons.' Much like the NSA, the conversation isn't "should we do this?" it's "we're going to do this whether you like it or not, but we promise to work hard reassuring you that it was the right thing to do."
