Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

4 August 2013 -  Rachel Maddow dismisses the architects of the Iraq war, 'arguably the grandest and most craven foreign policy disaster in American history,' from contributing to any credible discussion of potential military action in Syria.
Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

And why these polls are reading as they are, heavily in favor of no Syrian targeted response, neither McCain nor Romney nor any (R) are president, Obama is and can't have the backing of the warhawk flag wavin patriots, freedom fries anyone, who loves their wars for free and don't sacrifice as to the decades long results of while seeking to privatize for profit their responsibility the VA!!

That goes for the Dems and Indies who were a part of the some 70%plus in full support of abandoning All the missions after 9/11 so quickly, Afghanistan, to invade and destroy an innocent country and people, Iraq! And have yet to pay for either nor demand they sacrifice for the results of, DeJa-Vu all over again!!

The butt cyst rush, 4 August 2013, gives the speak that says it all about these polls, in below vid, "the Obama 'regime' conspired in the chemical attack on the innocent Syrian women and children", cue Issa as Bengazi was even brought up in the Hearings!!

The free world should do what they didn't as to Saddam, certainly not Sr Bush and especially Jr Bush. Seek indictments on the World Court targeting Assad, top Syrian government officials surrounding him, top Syrian military officials right down to jr Syrian officers directly involved with the delivery of the rockets with the chem weapons used. If known or can be identified through any proof American intelligence has collected, the U.N. inspectors bring out, the French intelligence being gathered, same for the German intelligence agencies and any other countries knowledge. Let the chips fall where they may on who might also have known, who might have supplied or help in the Syrian manufacturing of these weapons.

Saddam was captured, still wondering what ever happened to the reported Saddam look alike's the same press reporting on never did explain, tried and hung within Iraq. Reason, all the charges of War Crimes and Crimes against humanity, for decades and especially during Iraq's wars, had the possibility of bringing out all the decades of support and help from he held with the U.S. and who championed him within our government, many being part of both the administrations of Bush Sr. and Jr. and driving forces in wanting him gone along with all he knew.

Would indictments against the Syrian leadership be nothing more then symbolic, possibly, but Assad right now has no free reign in travel within his country unless extremely heavily guarded same goes for the rest of the leadership. And if indictments and World court trials bring convictions anyone dealing with him and his regime would be labeled as dealing with convicted war criminals. Any would also be blocked from traveling to other countries as they also worry about being sought out and captured by their own countrymen to be turned over to serve out sentences.

And while we're debating? Syrian targeted strikes and real WMDs:

Reverse the decision to grant immunity to George W Bush and the members of his administration who planned the Iraq War

We ask the Obama administration to reverse its decision to grant Westfall immunity to George W Bush. The Bush administration committed serious war crimes and needs to be brought to justice in a court of law. The Obama Administration should be aiding the plaintiffs in this case, not trying to obstruct justice. Instruct Attorney General Holder to reverse this decision immediately.
