      but fortunately Obama is president and so we didn't.  
      And of course one would need definitive proof as to exactly who acted and under whose authority and it was that level of proof we lacked. But what I really don't understand is why folks are complaining about not getting into another war while also preventing further chemical attacks- which is exactly what has happened.

        What is the problem with having disarmed Syria of it's chemical weapons without firing a shot?
        There seems to be a stream of commenters that are bent on denying Obama any kind of win. And if the win can't be denied then scuff it up and sh!t on it so it doesn't look like a win.
        I expect that from the FUX Noise idjits but it's really exasperating when it's from our Left.

        If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
