  •  Everyone including Obama opposes war. If there (0+ / 0-)

    Are any similarities between Iraq and Syria it's the outcome of The Bush legacy of sanctions on Middle East nations..  Bush Sr. imposed sanctions on Iraq in 1990 and Bush Jr imposed sanctions on Syria in 2004.  

    Sanctions meant to cripple and weaken.  The media never mentions the result of sanctions on a country.  No one mentions how sanctions would affect a country.

    When Bush did this he was lying.  Is Obama lying?

    •  Let's stop the hyperbole. There will be no "war". (0+ / 0-)

      Pres. Obama will not introduce troops on the ground for a sustained action and Syria can't project power.  We'll lob a few symbolic missiles, enogh to maintain the U.S. position against the use of chemical agents, and that will be the end of it.  Actually, the sooner it's over, the sooner we can start looking to real solutions.
