Not that Israeli intel is more dependable than our own but I believe they also intercepted the same intel


Presume Assad comes out an admits that he gassed the people:
(1) What purpose does it serve the United States to bomb Syria?
(2) What goal does it achieve?
(3) If the bombing is limited as Obama claims, why do it at all?
(4) If it is the right thing to do, why not get congressional approval in the same way Cameron is attempting to do in GB?
(5) Why not let the UN handle the situation?
(6) How is killing innocent kids with gas different than killing innocent kids with drone strikes?

fricking sick to see that child gassed...


But there is no correct way to handle the situation. Nobody knows who did it and I have a feeling that whichever side the US attacks will be the wrong side in the end.

It's not like our administration and intelligence agencies haven't lied to us about their doings lately either. My level of trust for both, is the same right now.

Very good point.

Why should US citizens trust anything this administration says when they continually lie about things, such as but not limited to, IRS targeting and the level of spying on US citizens?

I agree 100%. I trust no one in this situation. I think we should leave it alone.

I don't care who is in office, this is a bad hand. I would respect Obama if he said that he was wrong in his red line comment and that we have no business sticking our nose in Syria.

But someone has an agenda here and it looks like we are going to go to war.

Especially when you're willing to circumvent congress in order to go to war. What is the end game there?

Should there be hard evidence of use of chemical weapons in this instance.

Wasn't Bush hammered for not having hard evidence of WMD's in Iraq?

What is bombing Syria supposed to achieve, besides emboldening al-quaeda?

Great questions, Chicken. I'll add one more caveat to your first one...

Should there be hard evidence of use of chemical weapons BY ASSAD in this instance.

So we're supposed to give a shite about a bunch of Syrians dying and send in our military forces while hundreds of thousands of people are slaughtered throughout Africa every single year? Forgive me if frankly I don't give a shite about Syria.

Ideally to degrade WMD capability along with punishment for its use

and we should STILL not do a single thing. "Yeah, they be killin' themselves with nerve gas, let's bomb them instead, because dying in a blazzing fire is much more humane than gassing them!!" "oh yeah, and it'll only cost us $1,500,000,000 if we do it now, that's a savings of 10%!"

after seeing videos from syrian hospitals I actually think it is much more humane.

If we have to pick a humane death in the future we should pick bombs instead of gas. Doesn't mean we should go to fight in syria though. This is actually capable of starting WW3

Bombing Syria would be stupid. I guess it's a good thing some world military power didn't get that stupid after the WTC attack, call it an inside job, and bomb us for it.

His own military

The UN is just getting there. I wouldn't trust what a random UN official says until the UN team at least has a chance to inspect the site.

The UN will say what it needs to say to trigger what they want triggered. Hard to trust anyone at this point.
