    has INCREASED by at least 20% (from the much-vaunted 9% a week ago to 29-35% now).

    Yeah, we may well be up to 75% support by the time we put on a little fireworks show over Damascus for CNN.

        Didn't make a difference in Iraq.  And Palestinians have been holding up bodies of dead kids for decades.  Our reaction? More money for Israel.

        Only thing that will make a difference is American soldiers in body bags.  Oh, and anything remotely resembling inconvenience.

        •  Pelosi and Debbie W/S will, as that is their (0+ / 0-)

          selling point for the war, the picture of those children that Debbie cannot get out of her mind, and Pelosi who explains to her 5 year old grandchild, we are going to war (action she said, not war, it's just an action) because they killed a lot of children.

          Just so you know, they both care deeply about the deaths of those Syrian children, so when American bombs start dropping on them.......

            who will be killed by American bombs.

            Don't think for a moment that Pelosi and W/S will waste any breath on them.
