    according to Sun Tzu, you must build him a golden bridge. If this diplomatic move succeeds, and we are a long way off from making this work, then this golden bridge and the team who built it will find a permanent place of respect in the annals of diplomatic history.  However, it will assuredly NOT succeed if the threat of targeted weapons strikes by the United States is suddenly pulled off the table. Assad must NOT be given a free hand to terrorize his people or to destabilize the region even further.

      While Obama is talking peace, vote for war.  The only way to have peace is to vote for war and when war comes, what?  You voted for war?  What did you think you were doing? Oh, it was peace you thought you were voting for when you authorized war.  

      We can authorize war when they bomb Pearl Harbor.
